Before we begin, I'd like to thank New Azazel for trusting me with such an important position. I hope to bring only the finest standard of news to this wonderful newspaper. With that let's get into the top story.
Ireland and the United States agree to a region rental
Presented by The Wild Card
You can’t say this is a boring start to New Azazel’s second term. After some negotiations and some persuading the United States is going to own an iron region.
Recently both the United States and Ireland agreed to the rentals of the Cork and Kerry region and the Wexford region. Cork and Kerry will serve as a bridge to the iron rich region of Wexford.
American citizens and business owners will enjoy a 20% boost to their Weapons Raw Material production and Weapons production due to this region.
The agreement, which will cost the United States $90,000 per month, will be a monthly arrangement with both sides needing to agree to it on the 20th of each month.
The United States Congress passed the bill on December 7th and now we await the NE proposal of Ireland.
The American Tax Report
Presented by Kemal Ergenekon
The soon to be honoree of Congress's newest award and America’s chief economist, Kemal Ergenekon, shared some wonderful tax information with us this week. We would like you all to be aware of how the US is doing with our current tax structure.
One thing to note: between August 11 and August 25 was the period when the admins implemented the Work Tax feature. Since our income tax was 25% at the time, our work tax was automatically set to 25%. However, since we didn't have a congress that month, we were unable to lower the tax rate. The work tax per click has climbed to very high levels up until we could lower the work tax rate on 8/26/2013 to 5%.
