The Coprieta Standard highlights some of the news stories from our fellow micronational news media services around the Blogosphere in the past week.

- The Christmas Spirit was not lost as many micronations this week saw speeches made by their head-of-state, including, among other Emperor Stephanus of Abeldane, Emperor Adam of Adammia, Emperor Jonathan of Austenasia and Bysalian President John Gordon.
- Political parties are getting an early head-start on the March 2015 elections in Sorrenia, according to the local party press machines. The New Democratic Times reports that the Social Democrats International party is working on finalizing its slate of candidates, with recently appointed General Commanding Llewelyn Lawton seeking the prime ministership and incumbent President Andrew Janiszewski seeking re-election. Meanwhile, the Workers Party’s People’s Pravda reports that Miles Pressland will seek to unseat Janiszewski.
- While voting in Sorrenia may be months away, two micronations are sending citizens to the ballot boxes with just days to spare in 2014. In Namayan, the first-ever election will begin on December 29, with two parties vying for election to the positions of Rajah, Prime Minister, and Senator, according to the Namayan News Agency. Lundenwic is also holding its inaugural election, though the Imperial State News reports that a ballot shortage in the capital of New Charter will delay results until New Years’ Eve at the earliest.
