President of Dulu Takes Office, Vows to Reclaim
Citizens of Dulu, displaced to Staru while the
superpowers secured their home system against the possibility of
another cockroach invasion, have completed the final stages of forming
a government in exile. Today ex-farmer Tothi Grannaria was
unanimously appointed to the office of President For Life, as laid out
in the Constitution which had been ratified several months previously.
In his inaugural address, President For Life Grannaria paid homage to
those who had died over the course of the Spinward War, and vowed to
honor their memory by returning the survivors to the farmlands of the Dulu
system. She was cheered loudly by the assembled refugees, and
applauded by Ambassadors to Dulu from both the TradeMain Foundation and
the Tail Nations, who wholeheartedly support her goal.
Of course there are major obstacles facing the new Politburo, not the
least of which is the system denial process set in place by the
superpowers before they left. It is not known whether Dulu
is even inhabitable, but President For Life Grannaria is determined to
resettle no matter what it takes. The Marshall of the Combined
Forces of Dulu, on whom the task of assessing the situation
will fall, has the full support of the TradeMain Foundation Navy and
has been offered substantial resources to assist him.
President For Life Grannaria stated that while her nation will work
closely with the Tail Nations and maintain open and friendly relations
with the TradeMain Foundation, Dulu would no longer be subject
to the heel of Imperialism in any form and will remain steadfastly
A FarSpacer representative at the inauguration confirmed that the IFSS
will work with the Imperium to determine what needs to be done to
restore the system and yet still maintain it as the defensive
chokepoint between Yonder and Whitestar sector.
The unprecedented diplomatic work that has gone into the refounding of
the nation of Dulu would seem to bode well for its
future. It is surely just a matter of time until this historic
system is resettled by its rightful inhabitants.
