Breaking News: Trans-Continental Australian Railway finished; Trans-Continental Minor Empire of Australia formed!

Sydney (AP) – After years of hard work and cooperation the Trans-Continental Australian Railway, known benevolently as “the lifeline”, has been finished. This railway has been a joint project between two of the major Australian Kingdoms (the Northern and Southern) for many years and many people hope it will bring a new era of prosperity to the region.

Upon completion of the railway prominent individuals from both kingdoms met in Melbourne to discuss the future of Australia. After months of intense deliberation they named Hugh Jackman (former head railway engineer) Emperor of their newly formed Trans-Continental Minor Empire of Australia. They feel that Mr. Jackman because of his integral nature to the railway and “idol status” amongst many Australians will be a great unifier and is the best man for the job. Mr. Jackman was unavailable for an interview as he was, according to his mother, “out for a ride”. However, she assured us that he would accept his position. “Hugh has always been working for the greater good” she said “and I think he will see this as a great opportunity to continue that work.”

This decision (to unite the two kingdoms) comes as no surprise to many of the inhabitants of the newly formed TCMEA. One Sydney dentist who wishes to remain anonymous at this time said that the unification had “been a long time in coming” and was “welcomed by most all citizens”.

We are excited to announce that during the excavation in Project Seed Sower, we have unearthed large amounts of titanium ore and have discovered large underground veins of metallic ores. We are currently excavating and testing these metals for domestic use in our civil and military economies. If these metals prove useful, we would be willing to engage in trading agreements with other nations.

Here is an excerpt from an article from a local newspaper in Ottawa, Trideaux.

Trideaux's Citizens Very Happy With President Trouble

Since we, the people of Trideaux, elected our President, Trouble Bourque, he has brought us to a new level of freedom to exercise our artistic abilities. Artwork fills the streets and buildings, and every citizen loves it. Not only that, but education levels have skyrocketed. With so much influence from other cultures, people are gaining new perspectives from which to learn, and it serves everyone well.
"President Bourque has doe a lot for us," says a local Ottawa citizen, "he keeps wanting to learn and expand our knowledge along with his. Who can't appreciate a president like that?"
Coming up in Trideaux is the bi-annual art festival that all of the citizens have come to love. It will be held in a few days, and many there will also have plenty of praise for their gracious president...

We've gathered up every last citizen with any record of protest against our royal house and we think we can get them there in time. We've equipped them with all manner of riot police protection equipment. They have gas masks, clubs, pitchforks, torches, and we've even dressed one contingent in full medieval battle gear, with maces, flails, and battleaxes.

Jolly good, do we have to send these people back unharmed or are we allowed to kill off a few?

The ESA has sent its most boisterous Irish contingent to participate in the riot, complete with a months supply of Guiness and a bunch of zippos.
