Just try not to let a student resistance get ahold of one of your nukes please.

Anyone who gets their hands on a nuke is going to be intercepted and summarily receive a 5 course meal of 9mm.

The Municipalities of Antarctica wrote:
Once again, the composure of the Antarcticans was that of calm professionalism... although they appeared to express, minutely and subtly, a slight sense approval towards Ishtaria's comments on both the similarity of Lesser Yu's policy of deterrence, as well as the mention of socialism as a core part of Lesser Yu itself. As for their response, however, the main diplomat took a number of seconds before she provided her response, although her tone was unchanged even so. There was no sign of hesitation or reluctance, no sign of dishonesty. If anything, a slight hint of confidence revealed itself, although it wasn't allowed out from under the cordial and professional tone that was coming to characterize this particular diplomat.

"The Stalwart Federation has, for much of its formal existence, considered socialism to be a key tenant of internal operations. Both in the allocation of material wealth... and the perpetuation of general well-being towards all. Formerly, it was considered an ideological stance, especially during the early stages of its formation. However, meshed with the culture of our communities and peoples, it has become intertwined with us.
We consider it now a part of us as much as one would consider their customs and roots a part of them.
Collectivism and our prioritization of community over self, ensures an ecosystem where socialism thrives, perhaps not in the sense that some may recognize, but certainly in spirit, more than anything."

She pauses but a moment to allow her words to be taken in, though she does not stop there, as there are more words to speak.

"As we view our method of economics as part of ourselves more than as mere ideology, or one 'better' method over another, little attention is placed on the idea of caring how the economic systems of other states and societies operate. Our priority, is simply on whether the people are exploited unfairly, or not. Whether they are happy, or not. To us, as long as a people are happy and a country's stability is not in peril, we have no business judging the type of system they choose to follow. After all, is it not those communities, those peoples, who choose to follow these systems willingly?
Therefore, along the same line. We would not judge the actions of your First Secretary, especially as the Stalwart Federation itself, has sought to liberalize markets unrelated to living necessities and rights."

Again, another pause, to let her words be taken in. Though, once again, she is not quite done. Although for differing reasons from the first. Differing reasons that became known, when she spoke a third and final time.

"I, in return, ask of you, a set of questions on behalf of the Stalwart Federation.

To what extent does Lesser Yu and its peoples prioritize the environment and its wildlife communities?
And, to what extent would Lesser Yu and its peoples prioritize the well-being of others over their own comforts?"

Upon hearing the second question Ishtaria's demeanor changed ever so slightly from deeply concentrated and focused to a sense of confidence and slight pride in what she would say next

"Lesser Yu values its wildlife and its continued health to the highest degree this is due to a number of factors, first and foremost the citizens of Lesser Yu are keenly aware of the importance of conservation of the environment and natural world this is because as a predominantly island nation rising sea levels would drastically change the landscape of many regions in Lesser Yu making living there untenable, we have combatted this in multiple ways such as the creation of MoECA (Ministry of Ecology, Conservation and Agriculture) which manages the Ecology and environment of Lesser Yu who created the AgriCon Scheme which encourages urban people to live sustainably and makes it significantly easier.

Another is the 1976 Finance and Public services Act which heavily limited the carbon footprint of companies that operate in Lesser Yu and created the EAC to manage it by creating policies that limit the annual amount of carbon companies are allowed to emit alongside carbon pricing and encouraging investment in EVs (Electric vehicles)

All of these efforts combined have lead to us being in the 94th percentile in the region for Environmental beauty by the world census and the 94th percentile for eco-friendliness which is something we wear with pride."

Pausing to once again gather her thoughts and also to give the delegates sufficient time to process all she said to a sufficient degree, she then went on to the second question

"As the current Foreign Secretary and the Finance Minister under the previous administration I am personally related to many of the following statements and thus I know them very well and to an extent I must say I am very proud to say i genuinely believe that the Yuan people are perhaps some of the most compassionate and self sacrificing people currently around though it sounds like boasting i believe i can back it up.

For example Lesser Yu's Foreign aid spending is within the 98th percentile in the region and I cite this because we are by no means an extremely wealthy country but each year we dedicate 4.1% of our total government expenditure on international aid to some of the most needy and infirm.

We also have a well funded and extensive welfare system that aims to help those less fortunate than us as our current foreign policy is aimed at helping the desperate and unfortunate to live fulfilling and safe lives in Lesser Yu no matter which background they came from and with which qualifications they came with. We also are rated 0.89 on the human development index.

a recent example is our continued housing of refugees from Arthralonia who came here due to being evacuated during a natural disaster who unfortunately cannot go home due to the unstable state of affairs in their home country.

I hope I've answered your questions sufficiently."

OOC: Lowkey also proud of this one, cited some sources and talked a whole bunch :)

That's what Yuktobania tried to do as well. Although with a much larger meal.

True, but the Razgriz are what could be defined as OP. Besides, they didn't have any AA in the Valley, only above it.
