What to expect from a Luke-Modena Administration

The Luke-Modena Administration has announced their plans of many changes since the beginning of the 2021 presidential election. According to Luke and Modena, this administration will be a lot more firm and active within the community, as it’s been stated by several sources.

Foreign Relations & Policy

When it comes to the topic of foreign policy and relations with others, Stephen Luke has made it abundantly clear that several relationships will be ended with current recognized nations, as several of them have lacked contact with Dracul over the past months to years. Luke stated that it makes no sense to maintain recognition or alliances with others when they bring nothing to the table, including communication.

Military Activities

Sources indicate that Stephen Luke was not pleased with the Dracul-Graustark conflict that took place in late 2021, as it served no actual purpose and ultimately ended with many confused as to what was actually happening. Luke stated to members of his staff that declaration of war was to be the last resort and would be more of an exposure to information.

In addition, Luke stated that the military has started the creation of a military code of Justice, along with policy and procedures. Luke feels this makes Dracul one of the most professional militaries in the micronational community, since most micronations do not have military codes and policies made from scratch.

Foreign Influence

It’s been an issue from time to time where foreign government leaders have either made attempts or done so, in the influencing of decisions or actions taken by the previous administration. Luke stated in a past press conference that he will not be allowing outside influences to change the decisions taken by his administration. Furthermore, Parliament passed a law in 2021, prohibiting government officials from being influenced by outside parties.

A new policy was enacted on November 1, 2021, stating that the administration will not accept unsolicited contact from other micronations. This means that anyone from outside of Dracul, who wishes to contact the President or Vice President must schedule a meeting with the President’s secretary or cabinet.

Activity within Dracul

It was unfortunate that President Howie’s administration quickly became inactive, only showing up when requested for serious issues by his cabinet and staff. This caused several issues according to many, including influencing others to become inactive as well over time. Luke made it clear that as President he will stay in the light with his Vice President and cabinet.

Luke-Modena are set to be sworn in on January 8th, starting at 11am central. Broadcast will take place on Dracul’s YouTube channel.
