The international team is deployed to Allia, the capital of the Republic of Calvarinia, and needs to conduct a mission in the north unstable region of Kamasia. The country is approaching elections and is divided between modernity and traditionalism. Torn by the civil war and with a history of instability, corruption and a divide in wills as a nation, Calvarinia is looking towards a better future, but many conflicting interests are at stake.
The International News service decided to send Reporter Jakob Hlasek to the Republic of Calvarinia to explore the general attitude of the government and people ahead of an upcoming election. What was initially a simple assignment, became an investigation as an undercurrent of civil tension rose to the surface. What occurred was a series of interviews recorded and played on the International News podcast that exposed the truth and attitudes of a country that harbours the raw sensitivities of the past versus the vision of a government that is looking to modernise a future.
