The Communist Bloc has officially announced our N-Day alliance with The West Pacific, The Pacific, Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Balder, Europeia, The Great North, and United Kingdom. Our new faction for N-Day is Crabs of the Apocalypse.

N-Day begins 25 September 21:00 GMT. Join the LinkCrab Discord to get masked as a TCB member and a participant.

Countdown to N-Day

🦀 🦀 🦀 🦀 🦀 🦀

You can familiarise yourself with N-Day by reading Testlandia's "N-Day: What You Need to Know" guide. The general gist of it is that you may join a faction, create nukes and shields, and target nations in other factions. This event will last 24 hours, and the faction with the highest score wins.

Note: For those concerned, N-Day is non-canonical, so those with a No WMD policy may still participate, and results will not affect your nation after N-Day is over.

  • 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.
