GOVERNMENT NEWS

Well for a change its been a busy few weeks for the government of TIO. The long standing wrangling over the future of the constitution seems to be heading towards a long awaited conclusion. A bill removing the old constitution in favour of a new one which would allow more people to have a say in regional politics has passed the senate, however it will only take effect once a referendum has taken place at the end of this month. Currently a bill to implement the rules of the referendum is taking place and looks set to pass.

Hm, I don't know really...

Question 6) At home what do you do to unwind?

Beautiful but bleak mountainous rainy land with a strictly traditional martial society.
