News Report – 2nd February 2014 – Anthem Referendum Indecisive

Adam I, Editor

ADAMSVILLE, Primoria – After months of stagnation, the review of the National Anthem that began in October last year finally resulted in a referendum today. However, with only an hour and a half of voting remaining and still less than 50% turnout, it is looking unlikely that the Office of the Emperor will have the necessary support to legally issue an Imperial Decree changing the National Anthem.

The current anthem is Sim Broadway, from the soundtrack to the game SimCity 3000. However, this piece is copyrighted and is disliked by the Emperor. He proposed in the referendum that the anthem be replaced with an instrumental version of Rule Britannia – named, of course, ‘Rule Adammia’. Currently, there is slightly more support for the new suggestion, but there is one more vote needed for a required 50% turnout. Even then, if that extra vote was for Sim Broadway, the vote would then be tied, replacing one problem with another.

In other news, Emperor Adam I has revealed three Acts of Council that he will be presenting next week. These include an Act to create a Space Program, an Act to create a Ministry of Infrastructure, and – perhaps most controversially – an Act that allows the Monarchy to assume control over the National Government for 1 year, with the supervision of the Ruling Council, with the intent of resolving inactivity in the Empire’s executive. This same Act would also create a capital city within Tytannia province.

That is all for this week. Seek wisdom and honour, and long live the Empire!
