Welcome to The Admin Tower, the centre of regional government in Refugia, and directory to all of its associated offices, archives, and research material.

Refugia is a left-leaning, largely eco-socialist, region focused on environmental issues and community building and which features a disproportionate LGBT population. The region aims to provide a safe and happy place for our residents and member states where they can feel free to discuss any interest they have, on or off of NationStates, in a stress-free environment. Refugia has a small but efficient government with a democratically elected council, operating with relative independence over their domains. The regional law is made up of members' contributions, and voted on directly by all member states in the region at the time.

The region has been through such adventures as to have survived Z-Day twice in a row without a single casualty, and similarly contributed to the protection of Ba Sing Se by flawlessly defending that faction from all radiation damage during N-Day. Refugia has been the source of a number of World Assembly resolutions and boasts one of the highest average deck values. All of which can be attributed to the awesome people that live here.

Government
.

Refugia's government is composed of five different Regional Councillors, as defined by law in the Refugia Revised Statutes. Each councillor is elected directly by member states in four month terms, and subject to recall votes by the same. Each Councillor is, further, limited to be re-elected but once in a row. For every position, a Councillor is largely at liberty to decide the fate and direction of their office and how it wishes to conduct its business, unless specific power checks have been imposed on their functions by law. Certain substantial decisions about the regional direction require votes that original from Council members. All Councillors have equal political weight in these matters.

Presently, the Regional Council is composed of the following members:

  • The Arch-Administrator, which is defined as Refuge Isle, the region's founder. Although there is no head of government, due to the council structure, the Arch-Administrator is often a figurehead for the region as head of state. The Arch-Admin's responsibilities are primarily to appoint and dismiss other fairly elected councillors into their offices, as well as maintaining regional records and historical notes.

  • The Councillor of Foreign Affairs, presently held by Pantala and Pyrrhia. The Foreign Affairs Councillor maintains relationships with Refugia's allies and is responsible for managing the diplomatic corps of the region, providing lines of communication and timely updates, as well as managing it's necessary staff. The Councillor provides regional advice for the opening and closure of embassies, which are carried out by regional referenda.

  • The Councillor of Culture, presently held by Sylh Alanor. The Councillor is responsible for hosting regional events that develop regional engagement and cultural identity. By law, the Councillor must develop regular and updated Eco-Reports for the region, that describe Refugia's environmental goals and how members can help reach them.

  • The Operations Councillor, presently held by Indimu. Operations requires a general knowledge of the world of NationStates, as its role is to be on the look out for threats to the region from outside and from within. When global events spiral all of known creation into turmoil, it is the Councillor of Operations that will determine the region's plan of action to deal with it.

  • The Councillor of the Interior, presently held by Araine. The Councillor is tasked with facilitating engagement, providing regional broadcasts, running polls and overseeing a survivable discussion environment over the RMB.

  • The Councillor of World Assembly Affairs, presently held by Junitaki-cho. World Assembly Affairs is responsible for facilitating discussions on World Assembly resolutions-at-vote, developing dispatches with Information For Voters (IFV) on current resolutions at vote, and providing regional recommendations for votes to the World Assembly Delegate.

Regional Law
.


All of Refugia's regional law is currently contained within the Refugia Revised Statutes. Any legal member state is entitled to draft a proposal to amend the law, and all proposals are passed by a simple majority of member states within the region. In this regard, Refugia is one of the few regions of the world that practices a direct democracy style, instead of passing the right to legislate through a more exclusive body. The statutes were originally the charter which founded the region and previously called the Regional Organisation and Integration, which organised Refugi Member States to form a government from a previously disassociated collective.

There have, at this time, been approximately ten revisions to the Statutes, carried out by four different authors. There remains an entire world's worth of legislation has still to be created. All past referendums to modify the law are recorded for reference purposes here and may also be found in the Z-Archives.

Regional Map
.


The Regional Map is available visually, in living colour, ever since the transition from cryptic telegram signals.

On September 24, 2019, the first announcement for Refugia’s regional map was posted via dispatch. Two months later, on November 25th, the official map dispatch was released, and the map has been enshrined in that glorious location ever since. It is open to feature all legal member states, and the application process consists mainly of gathering information on the “whats” and “wheres” of each nation on the map.

Refugia is an archipelago of islands of varying sizes located on the divide between the Hipster Sea and the Sea of Art in the North Connection Ocean. What stood in the place of Refugia before its creation is unknown. All that can be gathered are the edges of ancient secrets and dark arts that permeate the ocean floor. What they seem to imply has long been lost to the fog of history. Most nations within Refugia use conventional means of transportation to travel between their spaces, but to connect to the outside world, we use specially-constructed Travel Runes. These runes represent the target region and allow us to transport ourselves to them via portal.
