International News

N-Day, or Nuclear Day, is coming up at the end of this month on 26 September, and The Communist Bloc will be participating again this year. Keep an eye out here for announcements about factions, joining, and strategy. In the meantime, you can familiarise yourself with the mini-game by reading Testlandia's "N-Day: What You Need to Know" guide.

  • The details on Frontiers and Strongholds, the proposed changes to how regions in NationStates work, have been worked out, and at this point, it is unlikely there will be many more changes made. The plans can be found here.

    From Sedgistan (09/09/21):

      This means that the project is effectively finalised in terms of how it will work. What happens next is:
      • I'll leave this for a few days for further comments.

      • I'll then write up the change for admin. There will likely be some questions that come up internally about it, so there will be some back and forth on that.

      • If some aspects need changing/reconsidering, I'll bring them back here for comments.

      • When that is all complete, it will officially go on admin's to-do list to code. This is not a simple project to do, so don't expect it to come quickly. However, it will be top of my priority list for GP/SC changes.

      • I'll keep people updated on progress, but there will be no promises on timescales, and any estimates may change.

General Bulletins


  • 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!


  • 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.

  • We created a glossary of NationStates terms! We hope this helps anyone who is unsure of what different acronyms and slang mean.


  • 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 Link 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.
