On Sunday April 3rd, the sovereign territory of Vikesland was once again violated when a single assailant of the Micronational Liberation Front broke into the newly renovated Trails end interior works building as well as cause the collapse of a bale stack.
The unknown individual gained entry into the Royal Villa yard by traversing through the Royal Nature preserve, entering from the Canadian border on the east side. They came through the border fence and headed east along bubbling broke then turning south up a hiking trail towards the Bale stack and the Interior works building. The individual removed a support pole holding large round bales up on a stack. This of course caused some of the bales to drop. They then forcibly opened the side door to the interior works building using a hammer to smash open the locked door knob. It appears this is as far as the individual had gotten due to the heroic efforts of Vikesland securities K9 unit affectionately known as Toby. King Christopher recounts the incident:
“As we were sitting in the State room enjoying drinks and fellowship, we heard Toby raising one heck of a ruckus outside. I could immediately tell that he was incredibly distressed and his growling bark indicated he was trying to fight something. Myself, Prince Elgin and Duke Wutke (Wat-key) threw on our boots and jackets and ran outside. I saw a male individual jump out of the Interior works building running back towards the Nature preserve. Thats when I noticed the bales had been collapsed. Toby was hot on the assailant’s heels, even biting into his pants and legs, in return receiving vicious kicks. The MLF agent jumped the fence and ran down the trail to bubbling brook, retracing his entry path, eventually escaping across into Canadian territory. I was unable to catch him before he disappeared across the canadian border. I had to call Toby back halfway through the chase as the assailant had some kind of hammer in hand and I did not want Toby to receive a crippling blow from it.”
Inside the Interior works building was found an envelope with a short letter in it. It reads:
“As promised, the Micronational Liberation front has once again violated Vikeslandic territory. You were asked to cut all ties with the Kingdom of Calsahara and to reclaim the Embassy you gave them. You refused and now you are reaping the rewards of that transgression. The Expansionist policy of the Calsaharan Government has once again swallowed up more territory by annexation. This is unacceptable to us and we will not stop until they cease these actions and return the land they annexed. Calshara will not be unaffected as their turn is coming very, very soon. Vikesland, consider this your last warning, denounce Calsahara and spare the possible future loss of buildings.”
A visibly angered King was asked what his reaction to the letter was.
“I am obviously very vexed by this. This is an obvious attempt at trying to play the Kingdom of Vikesland against the Kingdom of Calsahara. What Calasahara does is Calsaharas business. In my opinion their latest annexation of land was their prerogative. Besides its not like they took land from another micronation. This MLF group needs to be stopped and I am afraid they think they are untouchable. Yes, todays individual may have gotten away but what he didn’t realize is that we now have a picture of his face on security camera. Its now just a matter of time before he is caught by Vikesland security forces or Canadian Law enforcement authorities. I also warned the MLF to not wake the sleeping giant, it appears they wish it to rise and crush them. Well, they got their wish. After an emergency meeting tonight our Security budget is being doubled. This means reinforced fencing in key areas, the acquisition of a remote controlled camera plane more security cameras and increased patrols. A security review will be done to expose key areas that can exploited, such as the one used today. Mark my words, the next incursion will be thwarted and the individual/s will be arrested. We are also going to be helping bolster the Calsaharan Corps. of Engineers come spring with whatever help they request.”
The real hero of this story was guard dog Toby. As a reward he received an extra helping of supper and some doggy treats. New security measures are being enacted this month and the investigation continues.
*Story additional* It has been learned that the MLF has conducted a strike on a building in the Kingdom of Calsahara with spray paint. After a discussion between the two nations security forces, it was concluded that both attacks happened at around the same time, making this a co-ordinated and far reaching effort.
