- The political unrest in Sorrenia dominated news from that micronation in the past week. The discontent was brought to the forefront when Richard Hytholoday called for the rejection of a historic bill that would enshrine the micronation’s secularism, according to a report by Liberty Action News!,the official news service of the Democratic-Liberal Party. After being condemned for his proposal by prominent politicians, including President Miles Pressland, hostilities between the micronation’s political factions erupted, resulting in the eventual suspension of the local Navy on charges of rebellion and conspiracy to create a ruling military junta.
- The passage of a law to promote growth of the agriculture sector in Leylandiistan was transformational, reported Béal na Tíre. The Agricultural Regulations Act 2015 provides for the implementation of what is billed as the first micronational organic certification programme and bans the use of agrochemicals. The government will also fund agricultural co-operatives to allow farmers to have access to common equipment and facilities. Farmers may also qualify for direct funding from the state as well.
- An article in the Daily Squidger indicated that Pallisico Sinclair’s desire to annex the Republic of Stars for Hamland under economic pretences had not fully abated as originally thought. Under the banner of his personal micronation, Passio-Corum, the prominent Micran economist laid claim to Stars’ oil extraction and exportation rights, setting up his re-introduction of annexation legislation in the Hammish Parliament later in the week.
