Episode 23



Its been another slow week in the government, however its been an interesting one.

Our Premier Genstatum appears to have fallen off the face of the Earth and now his nation has ceased to exist creating a slight crisis. Usually the Premiership would pass to the Vice Premier however Stersteraved
has also vanished over the summer. This has forced the Chancellor, Beatrice, to investigate what to do in this unprecedented situation. With elections on the horizon however it may simply be just a case of waiting for the situation to resolve itself through that.

Question 1) What's your favorite pizza topping?
Pizza? *leans over to adviser whispering* What is pizza? *adviser shakes head and shrugs* Next question please.

Question 2) Sticking with food what's your food heaven and food hell?
Sticking with food? Pizza is a food? Your foreigners with your strange flavors, perhaps pizza is my food hell, doesn't sound that appetizing really. Heaven would be my abuela's(grandma's) cooking, Asado, beans, tortilla's, I'm a simple man and simple food remind me of being little.

Question 3) What was your favorite subject at school and why?
I never went to school, I was guided but I mainly taught myself how to read, as a poor farmboy it was the only option as school was so far away. But if I had to pick, I guess history.

Question 4) Snog, Marry, Avoid- Beatrice Anselmo, Matilda Ironside, Leanne Hunnable?
Hmmm, my girlfriend and even ex-wife will be very angry at me *chuckles* Snog Leanna Hunnable, eh Marry Matilda Ironside and sorry, but avoid Beatrice Anselmo.

Question 5) You get to ask a genie one question. It doesn't matter what you ask, but you will get a 100% honest and truthful answer – what would you ask?
Am I doing what's best for my country?

But also, will the wifi ever be faster here...

Question 6) At home what do you do to unwind?
This may sound strange but I don't mind physical work to blow off some steam, I usually work my fields where I grow maize but also I like to spend time with my children, though Lora is a teenager and you know how this stage works out.

Question 7) What are your favorite book and film?
Nueva Ardia isn't known for it's shows or movies, but books, I particularly like many of Paulo Coelho works, guess I'd have to say the most well known one, the Alchemist. Then ofcourse I favor much historical literature, specifically that of Marx and Engels.

Question 8) Who do you consider to be your closest friends outside Nueva Ardia?
No one of a different nationality really, it seems my picture out of Nueva Ardia is painted slightly different. But Zavala, he's been deployed to various battlegrounds around the world and was a main contributor to the revolution, I consider him a close friend, nearly a son to me.

Question 9) How's the life of a politician treating you?
It's very peaceful, perhaps I should start a war! *laughs slapping knee, notices serious looks, quiets down* I was joking...

Question 10) Did you really 'torture' a teenage boy?
Rumors spilled by extreme political opposition, did I arrest the boy for assaulting my daughter? Yes. Did I torture him? No.

Question 11) Will we ever see Nueva Ardia and Rokkenjima get along?
Rokkenjima is a highly imperialist state, something I think would be dubbed 'Enlightened Imperialism', which can ensure short term prosperity perhaps like all capitalist systems, cannot ensure longevity, as a system based on needless consumption and growth is soon to fail. But no I don't think we can and will restore a level of decency with the attitude they've presented us.

Question 12) Who's responsible for the break down of peace talks with Zachachevania?
Zachachenavia, it's very hard to negotiate one sided terms when you know your country has been wronged.
