World Assembly Announcements


The MoFA and MoDA recommend voting FOR the current Security Council resolution, Liberate New Western Atlantic.

They encourage this because the New Western Atlantic (NWA) has a history of tolerating fascism and doxxing. Additional incidents which inform this decision include outing an LGBT member in a regional telegram and covering for a DoS player.

Our WA Delegate, Kethania, has created the first-ever RMB bot in NationStates history! This bot currently accepts two commands and allows you to compare policies or census data with one other nation.

To use this bot, you can post one of the following on the RMB:

[nation]ink cloud[/nation], compare policies [nation]<nation you want to compare yourself with>[/nation]

or

[nation]ink cloud[/nation], compare census [nation]<nation you want to compare yourself with>[/nation]

Details about the bot and its approval can be found here. Source for aionationstates can be found Linkon GitHub.

Politics:

  • If you’re not endorsing our delegate Kethania, you should do that straight away! Every endorsement on our delegate protects our regional security as well as amplifies our voice on WA resolutions. You should also endorse our vice delegates, Marxmeans, Shamian, The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine and Ubertas!

  • Become a citizen! This allows you to participate in regional politics, pick your representatives, and join the Regional Discord server. More information can be found here.

  • Check out the Law Archive. It is an easy way to navigate and keep track of all our laws. This document is updated as new laws get passed.

  • If you are interested in getting involved, consider volunteering with one of the Ministries. You can Linksign up here. We greatly appreciate the work all our volunteers do!

Gameplay:

  • Want some endorsements? Run the Revolutionary Endorsement Program! It's simple and doesn't take very much time. Endorse comrades, get endorsed back. If you run into any trouble, send a telegram to The Passerine Islands on NationStates or post in Discord, and we can help troubleshoot.

  • The TCB Card Factory is open and churning out cards! This program includes regional giveaways, a regional art museum, card requests, and of course, shiny 1% International Artwork badges. TCBs Card Factory is asking for a team of volunteers to help operate card farms to ensure a steady supply of cards are being printed. Think you can help? Sign up today.

Other:

  • Our forums are online, but unfortunately, we have lost a whole year of data. If you applied for citizenship between February 2020 and December 2020, make sure to reapply. You may also have to recreate your account. Apologies for this inconvenience. The government will be working as quickly as possible to re-accept citizenship applications. (Disclaimer: this only applies if you were registered as a citizen in-between February 2020 and December 2020. If you have joined TCB after this time period you do not need to re-apply for citizenship)
    Please also make an account at Linkhttps://theredand.black/ so the transition to the NSLeft forum goes as smoothly as possible.

  • We have created a list of leftist resources! This is an ongoing project, and if you think there is something missing from this list, please telegram or DM me. I am The Passerine Islands here and Sam on Discord.

  • On 11 August, 2021, Head Administrator M.M. resigned, and Precoixious has stepped up and become our new Head Administrator. M.M. will continue as an Observer Admin. Also joining the administrative team and Kirk and Ant. The MoI wishes them all the best.

While run by the Ministry of Information, the Daily News does not necessarily reflect the stance of the current administration.
