JOE ALLIES WITH SECRETERS
Joe’s Fun Club has decided to merge together with another country- the Secreter’s Country. The name of the new country will be Joe’s Secret Club. Amazingly, we have just discovered the Secreter’s Country because they have stayed under the radar for such a long time. The population and other data from the Secreter’s Country is missing, so it is unknown if it’s a threat to the South Republic at the moment. However, it probably is, because Joe’s Fun Club was considered a threat, even though it only had a population of 22 people.

MOVIE BANNED IN THE SOUTH REPUBLIC
A new movie by acclaimed director Matt Goshburper has just come out, but no one will be legally watching it in the South Republic, because the Mayor and Senate voted 8-2 to ban the movie. The name of the movie is “The Art of Murdering” and it is about the bizarre ways in which people murder each other. The film uses several examples and says at the end “Murdering is pretty fun! You should try it sometime! I haven’t found a better hobby in my whole life!” At press time, there are no serious protests to legalize the movie. Mayor Kelspie commented on the matter, saying: “Murder is one of the worst crimes imaginable. Painting a picture that murder is somehow a ‘good’ or ‘amusing’ activity is simply ridiculous. I can hardly believe this movie isn’t a joke!” Most Conservatives and Farmers agree with him, although a few Liberals and Groiners disagree.
GUN BUILDER’S APPRENTICE PROMOTED
In the South Republic Gun Shop, the new apprentice will be promoted to Gunsmith Assistant in a few days. He has shown tremendous ability in gunsmithing, and exceeded the owner’s expectations. Once he is promoted, the shop will once again be producing just as many firearms as it typically does.
CURRENT TRADE PRICES & INFORMATION: (by Trade-Talker)
Internationally, the union between Joe’s Fun Club and the Secreter’s Country will be good for both of them. That scares me. Although Joe’s Fun Club only was hardly a threat, they may get overly aggressive because of overconfidence in their power. Also, the Secreter’s Country may have secret weapons or blueprints that could cause damage if used against the South Republic.
Groinland is selling even more knives. I honestly hope the G.C.C gets replaced by an industry that cannot murder people. Knife production in a country like Groinland can only mean murder, murder, and more murder. However, it is beneficial for their economy.
The South Republic economy is still going downhill. The primary reason for this is the cattle industry. Even ten head of cattle can cause a temporary debt in our country. Next year, though, the South Republic will hopefully be big enough to not be susceptible to such trivial problems.
