The South Pacific Coral Guard (SPCG) is a group of trusted nations who maintain a high-endorsement count and are one of the most crucial lines of defense against external and internal security threats along side the Council on Regional Security (CRS).
For the safety and security of our region, we ask that all World Assembly (WA) member nations in the South Pacific endorse the members of the CRS, as well as the Delegate. There is no requirement to do so but endorsing the CRS and the Delegate will make those who do a SWAN Knight.
Duties and privileges of the SPCG
Member nations of the SPCG are permitted a higher Endorsement Cap than that provided for the general World Assembly membership. The current endorsement cap for SPCG members is set to be equal to 85% the endorsement count of the CRS member with the third-highest endorsement count. (Currently Erinor at 701 endorsements)
A member of the CRS will be appointed to act as a liaison for SPCG members and, in times of emergency, SPCG members might be called upon to support or otherwise work with CRS members.
Joining the SPCG
In order to become a member of the SPCG, one has to:
Have World Assembly membership in the South Pacific; and,
Step 1: Ensure that you meet all the requirements listed above.
Step 2: Write up an application which provides:
The name of your WA nation;
Your history in NationStates including any aliases you are using or have previously used; and,
One (or several) paragraphs arguing why the Council should appoint you to this position of high trust.
Step 3: Send your application to a member of the CRS. You can do this by a variety of methods (a telegram, a private message on the forum, or a direct message on Discord).
The CRS will review your application. This can take a number of days to three weeks. The Council will likely have additional questions which they will communicate to you via the method of your application. Following a formal vote within the Council, it will decide whether to appoint you to the Coral Guard and notify the Assembly of its decision.
Please be advised that meeting the requirements does not automatically guarantee that the application will be successful. These mechanical conditions are one of several factors which the Council considers in its determination.

This initiative is an informal joint effort between the Ministry of Regional Affairs, the Local Council, the Council on Regional Security, and some nerds who have no life. (Read more about who run this here)
