I don't want to crush your enthusiasm, but does the region really have enough of a shared military organisation to justify an 'IDU military march'?
Sciongrad doesn't even have an army!
Are there any military organisations within the IDU?
In line with the issues Nova Sodor will partake in peace keeping missions, defend it's possessions and protect it's shipping from pirates. This however still leaves a relatively weak (albeit tecnologically sophisticated) military force which in the event of an invasion (especially from the west) would see our islands quickly fall and become a bridge head for an aggressive force :-/
As in international militaries?
Cagontia apparently has a relatively well funded military though I never think of it as such. The Former Urocan Empire of Heklocharis is a very militaristic nation tottering on military dictatorship.
I was thinking more of a Trans-national force. Nothing aggressive but an organisation that served to fulfil the role of mutual defence.
Not yet, I think, but maybe a treaty establishing an alliance [for defence only] and setting up at least a planning staff might be a good idea.
For various 'cultural' reasons, the Bears [IC] usually produce their maps with West -- rather than North -- at the top. I've started creating 'West-topped' versions for some of the maps that I'd already posted online: see http://imgur.com/a/ZS0xE for them...
I did it by accident whilst going to like it but I thought that I'd 'un-suppressed' it.
Are you able to see the original post?
Alright, Glen-Rhodes, a player from outside the region but that we trust, is going to be updating the forums imminently. There will be a designated sub-forum for the IDUSA. Under this sub-forum, I will create a thread where members of the region can declare their intention to become a member of the IDUSA. All IDU members are entitled one vote in the IDUSA and are free to declare their intention to participate at any time, but they must declare their intention in the thread (to prevent potential abuse down the road). After one week, the members of the IDUSA will be permitted to elect a speaker (that way we allow current IDU members a reasonable period of time to declare their intention to participate before any serious business is discussed) and will be able to function independently. The members of the newly established IDUSA will then pass election procedures and are free to call for elections whenever they see fit, but I would recommend they do so as quickly as possible.
Those are pretty nifty. I couldn't help but notice that you have almost an inordinate abundance of woods in your nation. I suppose the age-old question is thereby definitively answered. Your citizens must save a lot on plumbing costs.
In other news, the Pope is indisputably Catholic.
