President Drucker Dies!

Dies while signing important papers on internal terrorist actions, autopsy scheduled, State funeral in 3 days.

President Drucker died at 11:48 PM last night. He worked right up until his death, never wanting anything but the best for our nation, he had just signed Presidental Emergency Act #132, authorizing the military to use violent force against several terrorist groups currently residing in West Pacific, three of these groups are suspected in a series of recent terrorist attacks that have killed 587 West Pacific citizens in the last year.

Officials say that the President apparently had a stroke after only writing Erik Druc, they say he wrote the ker after having the so called stroke, the leading senators from each of the three major parties met in the early hours of the morning and decided in a 2-1 vote that the signature would be honored and that the act would go through as normal.

According to the procedure set up by Article 4 of the 37th Amendment set up by the 137 West Pacific Congress, a Council of Eight has been set up to govern the country for 1 month, they will then choose to either extend the council until a new President can be chosen. The Members are:
General Alexander-Advisor to the President on Army Activities and Funding.
General Griesler-Supreme Commander of the Army.
Admiral Hastings-Advisor to the President on Navy Activities and Funding.
Fleet Admiral Danzig-Supreme Commander of the Navy.
Lieutenant Colonel Jaegar-Advisor to the President on Air Force Activities and Funding.
Colonel Havermills-Supreme Commander of the Air Force.
Senator Leipzig-Fascist Party Leader
Senator Vladimir-Socialist Party Leader.

All flags in West Pacific are to put at half staff for 3 days per our flag code, anybody who does not comply could face a fine of up to $87. The state funeral for Drucker will be held in 3 days, unlike previous funerals, services will be held in the West Pacific National Stadium, to allow as many people as possible to witness the services. The Council has alloted $5.7 Million for the Funeral, 2.3 Million is expected to be spent on Security, $1.1 Million will be spent to put a temporary cloth covering over the stadium because the rain that started yesterday has been forcasted to continue for the rest of the week. The rest of the money will be spent on the service itself.

As you may remember the President took power during some shaky times for our nation. Shortly after he took office the Socialist rebelled, causing some discontent that nearly caused us to leave the LHS. After smashing the Socialist rebellion and holding off attacks from several other socalist nations we were able to resolve our differences with the other members of the alliance.

The Dugglians, metaphorically smelling blood in the water, instantly punch thru your border. Ten thousand soldiers, full of steroids and methamphetamine, roll in on tanks and on foot, spreading like a virus through the streets of the eastern town of Granola. Simultaneously, a crack squadron of para-stormtroopers swoop in over West Pacific National Stadium, slice thru the cloth covering, and grappling down to the sky box holding the high officials, instantly shooting at any and all guards present.

How would you go about assaulting a recently beheaded country?

Ok, oh experienced webmaster.

How would you go about assaulting a recently beheaded country?

First, I would state a reason as to why. Then I would limit my use of smilies... and finally dash in some character RP.

And I'm not a webmaster, Max and [violet] are.

Hokey dokey then.

My country has no drug laws, and I've described the prime minister, Rebo Constada, as "eccentric." According to Mr Constada's psychologists, his condition has taken a turn towards drug-aggravated paranoid psychosis. Sitting all alone in the war-room for days on end mainlining methamphetamine :headbang: to keep sharp while listening to the news radio, watching news on the tv, and reading newspapers from all different countries, does strange things to a man. Before long, he's sending out attack orders to the army, on bloodspattered typeritten paper.

Then a crack team of para-stormtroopers swoop down to the temporary cloth covering on the West Pacific National Stadium, slice thru the cloth covering, and grapple down to the sky box holding the high officials, throw tear gas thru the glass window, and open fire on the guards. :mp5: :sniper: :mp5: :sniper:

First, the death of a President hardly 'beheads' a country. It isn't a good situation, but the country isn't going to wither and be vulnerable. The President isn't standing around the country with a big sheild and a nasty spiked mace. Second, you realize that should you decide to attack West Pacific, I will make it my personal objective to smite your nation into oblivion?

Also, you need to get into the other nation. Paratroopers aren't teleported. If I'm not mistaken, you don't have the resources or the backing to invisibly ship crack soldiers into West Pacific, which is a fascist state.

Zoogiedom's foreign minister will be present at the funeral ceremony, with an entourage of other notable faces in the government and a high security detail. The President, regretfully, is unable to attend due to the need of being updated on a war situation.

We are saddened by the loss of President Drucker, and extend our condolences to our good ally.

OOC: I'm tempted to respond to Dugglandia's attack, but I'll wait to see what W. Pacific does. If you want me to bomb his country back into the stone age then I'd be more than willing.


The Hudecian government expresses its deepest sorrows over the loss of one of the best friends of Hudecia. He was a great leader and man, who's loss will be felt by all nations who knew him.

The Hudecian Foreign Minister would like to attend the funeral.

The Serconean Foreign Minister, Sara Hunter, will attend the funeral.

OOC: Can I just ignore this god moding noob? If he did try to fly the 2,987 Miles from the nearest Coastline, over the capital, which is quite heavily defended and under martial law at this time for this exact reason, and land "crack" (crack apparently meaning high in this case) stormtroopers into the middle of the city, through a cloth covering that has not been put up yet, it will be 2 RL days now before the funeral, he would be destroyed, and remember, 6 out of the 8 memebers of he council are from the military, they do not mess with politics, they would just simiply start a plan to have all these men killed and launch a massive missile attack on Dugglandia.

IC: We will be more than happy to have your natons represented at the funeral. They will be able to stay in the Hotel de la Platte, it is a five start hotel located on the River Dubbes.

The Funeral started early in the morning, the body was put on display in the Hall of Heros, set up to remember great leaders and soldiers in West Pacific's history. Over 5.8 Million people moved through the hall so the could get a glimpse of the late president, even if it only lasted a few seconds. Several veterans of the West Pacific Civil War were scene in tears as they passed through, several stopped to salute the late president, many people brought gifts and flowers to set outside the hall as they set up a make shift memorial.

Next the casket was closed, the body was moved the 38 miles to the West Pacific National Stadium, every two miles a Howitzer was fired, one for every year the President ruled.

The Stadium, which normally seats 210,000 was filled with over 275,000 people. The Lights were dimmed as the presidents body entered the Stadium. A joint Army-Air Force-Navy band played the national anthem while the casket was placed on a pedastal in the middle of the Stadium. Several speakers made a speech about the President, even one of the Socialst Generals from the socialist rebellion made a speech on the late presidents behalf. After 3 hours of speeches the cloth covering which had been hastily put up was suddenly pulled off the stadium by Army Chinooks. "O' we the lucky few" a song about soldiers who died heroically for their country started playing. Fireworks were shot off, churches all around the city started ringnig their bells, 155MM Howiters ringed around the city started firing flares away from the city. Cities from over 90 miles away could see the flares and fireworks, planes 250 miles away reported seeing lights, one plane thought that the City was under attack and radioed the Air Force that bombs were being dropped on the city.

Finally after 25 minutes of Fireworks, songs, bells and large guns the president's body was taken out of the stadium. It would be moved 8 miles to the National Memorial Cemetary, where past leaders were barried, he would be buried next to President Vixely, Statues are placed over the grave sites with the West Pacific Flag flying over head. Drucker's grave would be unlike the other 13 presidents, he was the only non socialist president of West Pacific, all the other's had the old flag flying over head, Drucker would have the new Flag flying over him.

Finally the presidents body was layed to rest, the first guard took over watching the grave sitel. Each former president had 3 Guards, one from the Navy, one from the Army and one from the Air Force.
