Esteemed UNoE Parliament Delegations,
The world of NationStates is full of raiders and defenders. A raider, like Stattgang, can attack the UNoE. In several cases, Stattgang has done such. In one instance, Isle Hay removed Hiram Land as WA Delegate in an act of raiding. In all cases, we have to be on lockdown. We need to be safe against such, along with N and Z Days.
