Laz OS | participate in projects, or create your own!

Hello! Welcome to Laz OS!

This part of LazCorp is divided into three areas: LazACT (fun activities), LazAGE (lore and role-play) and LazWA (security and resolutions). Please check out what's currently going on and consider participating or starting your own project!

Temp Staff: Loftegen 2 <3

LazASK aims to encourage intriguing discussion on the Regional Message Board by bringing up a specific topic every day. These topics alternate between being about In-Character and Out-of-Character matters in order to inspire lore-building as well as general community development.

Temp Staff: Leonism <3

LazART is all about encouraging people to play around with art and share the products of their creativity with others. To this end, an art prompt is established every month and a dispatch published to hold submissions. LazART also reaches out to established artists in the greater NationStates community for thoughts on the submitted works and general art advice.

Hello! Welcome to the third LazART event!
This month's prompt is modern art that conveys a message... which basically means you can create whatever you want and then maybe add some squiggly lines to make it look funky. :P Have fun with it!
Draw your own modern art pic and send it to me via telegram or message Sylven Razedusk#1404 on Discord (where you can directly upload images from your computer) and I'll stick your entry on top! No need to get fancy but creativity is awesome!!

Feel free to include a title and/or short description with your submission if you'd like. :)

I don't know if you've met them yet, but I was talking with Escala recently and they linked me to this really neat website called Random Art. As they explained...

Escala wrote:A computer/script creates [an image] based upon a word [or phrase, or random gibberish] you type in. It's randomly generated for each typed in thing. Example would be: abcd. Anytime you put 'abcd' it will come up with that one generated image, but 'abcde' '12&52919' will be different. So you can write a sentence and create an image too!

I thought it might be interesting to generate images for different nations in Lazarus with the website and share them with each other. :)

If you'd like yours to be added to the gallery send me what word you'd like used (nation name, leader, or whatever!) and I'll make it, or generate your own and send me the link to it! (be prepared for me to make snarky comments about<3)

Your Imaginary Friend

this looks so appropriate x)

I'm not entirely sure what word Escala used, but I think their image is very pretty!

Hope you found this cool!

LazMAP provides a visual canvass to display the nations of Lazarus. While it is not necessarily related to role-play, RPing with others in regards to nation position on the map is welcomed.




Capital City

Nation Summary







Aigania is an efficient, environmentally stunning, cultured, genial, safe and socially progressive nation. Their citizens are vat-grown people and soft-spoken computers, with keen interest in outer space and irreverence towards religion. Aigania have a medium-sized government which is primarily concerned with Education and an industrial sector, which is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry.




Albhanaghan is a very regimented and military focused nation, yet has bountiful political freedoms, and arguable civil rights. Makes a LOT of guns and bombs.



Mano Zate

Austral Isle







Caybow is a weird but accepting nation.




Cianlandia is a large and sprawling Empire of magnificent proportions.




God is a Custadian.

Dadaism Haters

Resident, Foreign Diplomat (Gay)






Grossadmiral Der Lowe (Quadrant Alpha Beta)



The outpost was created after a science craft crashed into the atmosphere, with no signals except one last cry for help, a group of Kangun Imperial Guard where sent to locate and extract any survivors, and also learn about what happened, and the planet they are on.

Guiness Freaks


Jameson Whiskey

Guiness freaks, founded in 2001 by the glorious Dear Leader and his twin brother Beer leader to bring forth joy and drunkenness to the region.

Haviarda (Dark Haviarda)



Hickerbilly (The W.B.W.R.)



Perfect place to party, as long as you let us know your gonna be there. Mind our modified AK-40-12-Gauges.

Holler Town (The W.B.W.R.)



Holler Town, the homeland of the WBWR (Wild Band of Woodland Raiders), is a great ally, but a force to be reckoned with. They specialize in bows, so they don't need guns to excel in combat, but beware of their fondness of them!







Ireland Isles


Stag City




Kappan is a fanatical nation full of devoted, fundamentalist followers of Christianity. The law is constantly shifting, since laws are based on the bible, which happens to contradict itself quite often.




Mzeusia is a democratic, environmentally friendly nation whose government is led by Sirakles Tylosis. The people in general, have a strong sense of national and cultural identity, and they still partake in customs dating back to ancient times.

Killer Kitty


Krazy Kitty Military District

Kingdom of Napels





Leonism is an ancient Empire, formed in 2003 in RL, ruled by a military democracy (all citizens are also part of the military, but there are free and fair elections). The economy is a social market economy, with a heavily regulated capitalism at its core. Arms Manufacturing is the country's biggest industry, but the economy is diverse with Tourism and Book Publishing also being important. The government focuses on education, science and military. The standard of living is high, but so is the tax rate.



Loftegen 2 (Loftegen)



Loftegen is a representative democracy overseen by an absolute ruler.




Mzeusia is a democratic, environmentally friendly nation whose government is led by Sirakles Tylosis. The people in general, have a strong sense of national and cultural identity, and they still partake in customs dating back to ancient times.

New Rogernomics



New Seatlantis





Patridam is a wealthy, vast nation of 43 million patriotic citizens. High economic freedom, rich natural resources, and a strategic location have turned Patridam into an economic powerhouse of cold-war tech. Limited government keeps civil liberties strong, income tax nonexistent, and foreign policy non-interventionist.



Imperial City

Perchan is a City State and Hinterland led by HM Grimald von Perchan.




Ryccia/Lazarene Ryccia (Fornoire)





Star City




Resident (changing soon!)

Significantly Sized Bricks (Theocracy of Bricks)


Foundry of Bricks



Snudgskooge's palace

Snoodum, formerly known as Galgaria was formally founded in 47 AFD (After Founder's Death). This sparked the long and bloody history of Galgaria, renamed after the current leader, God-Emperor Snudgeskooge. Many view the country as a hostile, corrupt cesspit of oppression and squalor. This of course is blasphemy!

Snoodum has prospered with every citizen living underground in mega-cities. Some may view the state's measures of control as excessive though this is purely so it can run and continue to be finely tuned to the nth degree so that life runs smoothly. The military control the surface cities, preserved, and in some places, rebuilt to display Snoodum's historic roots. Military installations dot the country and only those given special permits are allowed to the surface.

South Seatlantis



Sulfux (Sulfux Empire, Imperial Sulfux)





Trash Island



The Copper States (The Mineral Triplets)



The Mineral Triplets is made up of three nations (The Copper, Silicon and Aluminium states) with a compact of free association that are bent on becoming the most intelligent and scientifically advanced in Lazarus (they have had little success so far, but they are resilient).

The New California Republic (The NCR)


Shady Sands

The New Earth Army (The W.B.W.R.)


Special forces psychic spy unit abandoned by the U.S. military, The New Earth Army left for a new home, and settled peacefully in Lazarus.

The Pharcyde



The Pharcyde was a struggling industrial democracy degraded into being a narco-state before becoming an all-out mafia state. The Pharcyde's rulers are notoriously unpredictable and bad at spelling. The Pharcyde is located on the pharcyde of Lazarus' eastern continent.

The Republic of Glasgow



An existential crisis.

The Torrentin



The United Syrian States (USS)



The U.S.S. is known for its nautical attractions and naval prowess. The rather peaceful nation strives on cultural pluralism and ethnic heterogeneity. What was once a divisive and feudalistic tribal environment developed into a gargantuan, unified nation-state, known for it's environmental beauty and economic prosperity. Under Jado's benevolent rule, the populace enjoys a diversified set of liberties, accredited to the state's leniency and progressive approach. The U.S.S. is situated in a very interconnected segment of Lazarus, consequently resulting in a heavy regional interdependency, ranging from diplomacy to trade.



Piggy Cliff


Foreign Diplomat (Osiris)


West Amerika


New Zelea

Your Imaginary Friend (Imaginary)



Imaginary is a dilapidated seashore country that likes to keep to itself, choosing to fish and farm in isolation rather than trading with other nations in Lazarus. This may be why the place is called Imaginary, for many are not even aware of its existence up in the far north-western reaches of the region.

Project Manager: The Copper States

LazHIS creates a canonical chronicle of events starting now, and ending when Lazarus ends.

Check Link for a nicer-looking version

The Age of Tubb
Where Lazarus lived under the most rotund delegate of Treadwellia

4/04/2019 --- Present Day

Ancestries 1:1
11/02/2019: The great nation of A rosa did split from Lazarus, with a bittersweet goodbye, and made their own region now called The Ros Empire. The Mineral Triplets (of the Copper States, Silicon States and Aluminium States) then did send settlers to make a new nation called The Platinum States to remind The Ros Empire of whence they came from.

Ancestries 1:2
4/04/2019: The great delegate of Imkiville did sign over the honourable throne to the rotund nation of Treadwellia, one that endorsed plumpness and autocracy of the most large denizen. Treadwellia was rulled by Grand Tubbius and his royal family.


Tubbia 1:1
10/05/2019: A medium-sized nation from Lazarus by the name of The Copper States said: “Let there be a record to chronicle Lazarene events”, and so it was. The Lazarene cabinet at that moment did consist of:

Treadwellia as the C.E.O. and Delegate,
Kingdom of Napels as the Director of the Paralegal Department
New Rogernomics as the Director of Internal Management as well as a Security Auditor
Harmoneia, Killer Kitty, Aflana and previous delegate Imkiville were also Security Auditors
Your Imaginary Friend wasn’t an official member of the cabinet, but was recognised as a master of Internal Affairs within Lazarus

There were also many foreign diplomats, including the Copper States themselves.

Tubbia 1:2
12/05/2019: The noble Leonism did celebrate its 7 Billionth member, and there was much rejoicing to be had. What makes this day of worth, however, is that the aforementioned Leonism did state itself friends of Hycronesia and many others. This made Lazarus even more tight-woven and merry. What joy!

Tubbia 1:3
14/05/2019: The noble Leonism agreed with The Copper States to create a union in which there would be no visas, and citizens could pass and live freely (there would also be exchanging of the scientific knowledges)! This was the dawn of of the Lazarene Imperia. It may be viewed here: page=dispatch/id=1209726

Then do we enter a dark time, where The Copper States bufooneshly forgot to record anything of date. During this time, the feared Lily rose, destroyed Ros Empire, and then was shunned. The Copper States also reached 1 billion before a meteor crash, and Moose Farmers (Adelsin and Sneyland) stopped in Lazarus, although very briefly.

Tubbia 1:4
28/07/2019: The Copper States did awaken from their slumber and said: "Let LazHis continue!". And so it does to this day.

Tubbia 1:5
28/07/2019: Sneyland and Adelsin did return to Lazarus, this time for good. All moose harassment was forgot, and a new chapter of moose began.

LazAIM's focus is on ensuring that the CEO maintains a high endorsement count, that the Security Auditors stay in an endorsement range below the CEO where they can gain influence to keep Lazarus safe, and that residents endorsing the CEO can rise to their legally instituted caps. LazAIM publishes and updates a list of where these three groups should aim to keep their endorsement levels and helps assist them in reaching these goals through World Assembly development campaigns.

Hey, this dispatch has like no formatting (as in, it has absolutely zero formatting) because I'm so done with formatting but the info that is needed is here so get hyped! :)

What endorsement levels LazAIM is currently working towards:

CEO ~ moar
Security Auditors ~ 160-170
Residents (endorsing the CEO) ~ 100-120

Schedule key:

RTG = region-wide telegram asking people to join the WA if they haven't already and endorse the CEO+Sec Auditors who are below their aim (should always be coupled with some other stuff in tg so you're not blowing smoke in the face of people who are already endoing everyone)

NTG = telegram to non-WA people asking them to join the WA and endorse the CEO+Sec Auditors who are below their aim (using -tag:WA)

WTG = telegram to those in the WA who aren't endorsing the CEO asking them to endorse the CEO+Sec Auditors who are below their aim (done manually using Moose lists)

WDM = mention through a dispatch those in the WA who aren't endorsing the CEO asking them to endorse the CEO+Sec Auditors who are below their aim (Moose lists)

WPM = mentions through a post on the RMB those in the WA who aren't endorsing the CEO asking them to endorse the CEO+Sec Auditors who are below their aim (Moose lists)

OWTG = telegram to those over 10 endos that aren't endorsing CEO asking them to endorse him/her or face dire consequences mebbe

Hello! I just noticed your endorsements have risen above your legal cap (currently 10). If you endorse CEO [nation]Treadwellia[/nation] you will be allowed up to 120 endorsements so please do that as soon as possible (click his nation, scroll down, and hit the "endorse" button)! Once you've done that he and others will make sure they're endorsing you back. :)

If you have any questions about endorsements or other NationStates stuff please don't hesitate to ask! Thanks!

OTG = telegram to those over 120 endos asking them to either ask people to un-endorse them or resign WA


May 7 - RTG, OWTG
May 21 - WDM, NTG, OTG
June 4 - WPM, NTG

This is vague but what I'm sort of thinking to do.. dates will probably vary/things will change a bit based on tgs sent out by gov folks etc but going to try to keep a log so we're not over-doing it sometimes and just not reaching out at all other times.

(hey look, a formatting thing kinda)

LazENDO is a monthly event created to help those endorsing the CEO reach their endorsement cap. At the beginning of the event, possible participants will be given lists of people to endorse and those who endorse everyone on their list will be granted special recognition.

about | results | join | faq

Hello and welcome!

LazENDO is a monthly endorsement event that helps those supporting the CEO gain more endorsements. This keeps Lazarus more secure and maybe also gives folks a nice fuzzy feeling inside! Supporters are asked at the beginning of the event to endorse everyone else endorsing the CEO. Those who do are given recognition on the regional page and a chance at being appointed a Regional Officer for the following week because they must be fancy!

Many thanks to all those who participated in the June 18 - 25 event!


I'd also like to give a special shout-out to the top endorsed nations in Lazarus (between 100 and 120)! You made it up there (and my, are there getting to be a lot of you, which is a good thing)!
We trust you will be ready to assist Lazarus if needed.

The New California Republic
Loftegen 2
The Pharcyde
Captain Apollo
Kan Po
Guiness Freaks
Aguaria Major
Burning Pants
The Illusian Empire
Wintermoot III


Wondering how you could be part of next month's event? First, do the following things (and shoot me a telegram if you need help)!

  • Join the World Assembly (click the Apply to Join button and then follow the instructions it gives you to get in)

  • Endorse CEO Treadwellia (scroll down the nation page and you'll see an Endorse button there if you're in the WA - click it!)

If you've done that, you'll get a telegram when the next event happens with instructions on how to participate. Hope to see you there!


What's your favorite breakfast food?

Recently I've been really into like breakfast burrito things, but I also enjoy plain cold cereal. :)
