Crowds wait for Party Line Memorandum

As time closes in on 5 pm on a Friday, several onlookers have been spotted waiting for the typical parade of party line rhetoric to be sent out from Gaspadin Dollarbranski. They are watching the balcony closely for any sign of the usual piece of paper slid out from underneath the door of the Administrator's balcony door.

"We wait for great leader Dollarbranski to tell us whether it will be alright," says Yuri Ivanovich, a local blue collar worker who was let out of work a few hours early today in anticipation of the Great Founder's day.

"If I don't hear from him, I begin to believe the lies and misinformation presented in the papers. It is very disturbing for an old lady like me," said Anya Aleksokova.

Ivan Ivanovicz, a military watchman, assigned to keep order in the streets surrounding the Dean's office, explains that ordinarily the shock troops come around the corner first, followed by pictures of the great leader, and then the text of the State of the State is produced to those who are waiting in the streets. Ivanovich explains that he is to report any dissident activity and stop intimidating taps on the shoulders between people waiting.
