Greetings, fellow Earth citizens! For too long now I have not addressed you and it is fair to say, I regret, that activities in Arborea must appear to you to have ground to a halt. But fear not, for we Arboreans have taken on many great projects and achieved many great accomplishments since I last spoke to you all. It is my privelege to announce to you also that Arborea is taking on a renewed spirit of development and optimism for the coming year, and we look forward to sharing it with you.Read Full Post »

As we have done in the past, Arborea has donated money through Kiva (www.kiva.org) to a person in need. This time, we have donated to Umeda, a school teacher in Tajikistan, so she can buy cattle to supplement her family's income and improve the quality of life for her children. We hope she chooses her cattle wisely!

Upon arrival it was found that the previous stewards o...Read Full Post »

This is to take advantage of an opportunity to enhance Arborea’s GDP by leasing territory to tenants from a foreign power, in this case New Zealand. A famous example of such a lease is the Second Convention of Peking signed by China and the United Kingdom in 1898 which gave the Br...Read Full Post »

The Tsar today reiterated the warning to Arboreans wishing to travel to the United States due to the constant threat of insane gunmen.
In response to the recent reports of gunshots outside the US Capitol in Washington, DC, the Tsar offered the assistance of the Arborea Defence Service, saying that the preservation of the US government was vital to Arborean interests in the region. As yet no reply has been received.
To date, Arborea has never had a mass shooting.

The Tsar stresses that there is no cause for alarm, and that the Arborea Defence Service's 1st Gutter Clearing Engineer Corps has responded admirably to the...Read Full Post »
