Political Reform Commission

Lady Philophrosyne Facebookian-Flabberghast, Countess of Cupateeunkaique, is one of the very private private secretaries to the Nilkawtian head of state, Her Illustrious Highness, Twaklin I, Ethereal Grand Duchess of Nilkawt.  Lady Philophrosyne is currently acting as deputy head of state while the head of state is in exile here in Adelaide.

Although any deputy head of state rarely has many powers, Lady Philophrosyne has unusually been given the power to establish a Nilkawtian Political Reform Commission.  This is in keeping with her social networking activities on behalf of Nilkawt as a state and on behalf of Her Illustrious Highness not only as a head of state but as Muse of the World.

As Countess of Cupateeunkaique, Lady Philophrosyne is currently examining the world's legislative chambers, including all the parliaments and parlours.  In view of this, she is eager to ensure that her own version of the parlour meant for you is the most appropriate location for the discussion of any form of political reform.

Twaklinian School of International and Constitutional Law and Peace

Students of the Matildan School of Physical Education, Legal Traditions and Unjustifiable Wealth Transfers have now been advised in writing that all their courses have been cancelled.  No refunds are available.  The school has closed down and all the doors have been locked.

The receivers of the school have been examining the assets.  They have also been taking what they believe to be their own fair share of them, before the processing of most other claims begins.

The secured assets of the school, namely the buildings themselves, are now in the process of being transferred to the ownership of the only secured creditor, namely the Nilkawtian head of state, Her Illustrious Highness Twaklin I.  In her infinite wisdom, the good lady has already begun her patronage of a new law school in Nilkawt, namely the Twaklinian School of International and Constitutional Law and Peace.

The former teachers of the Matildan school are currently in the process of applying for new positions.  Unfortunately, very few teachers of the former educational institution are considered to be assets themselves.  Most of the students are not considered to be assets either, having been sent to the Matildan school by wealthy parents with the primary aim of learning how to expand the family portfolio of assets.

The new school will, of course, teach some of the same material as the old school.  For example, waltzing, legal history, philosophy and international diplomacy will remain as part of the curriculum.   Manipulative rhetoric, competitive jogging, aggressive debating, surprise invoicing, arrogant debt collecting and winning at all costs will not be taught in the new school.

New subjects will include meditation, international law, international finance, international insurance, constitutional law, mediation, minuets and theories of taxation.  Students wishing to transfer to the new school will need to reapply.  All fees are payable in advance.  All scholarships are provided on the basis of social justice.

Travel Advisory

As a state of emergency has been declared for Nilkawt during the current constitutional crisis, all visitors and potential visitors are advised to ensure they are fully aware of what to do in any sort of emergency.

No-one visiting Nilkawt, or planning to visit Nilkawt, should do so without an excellently suitable travel insurance policy.  Obtaining such a policy is the responsibility of visitors themselves. 

The government of Nilkawt usually requests that its own citizens accept the combined assessments and travel warnings of several other nations before going elsewhere in the world.  For example, the travel advisory service of the Australian government may come in handy before embarking on journeys for business, leisure and/or education.  They may not be particularly helpful for anyone seeking to go into exile.
