Minister of Information:

  • I posted a Question of the Day. It asks, what political ideology best matches your own? It will be open for 3 days.

  • I will be on holiday next week, so you can expect the Daily News to go on a brief hiatus. It should resume on Saturday, 2 October.

TCB Card Factory:

  • Wasc won the competition, winning herself a Luna Amore S2. Join us next week for a competition!

Minister of Culture:

  • We are finally announcing the creation of a new Discord event: One Panel Story!

    As already outlined in my campaign, this game will be quite simple: in a dedicated channel, the community creates a collective comic. To do this, everyone draws one panel at a time, continuing the story set by the previous ones. And that's about it! Get as creative as you like, and don't worry, there won't be an enforced "beauty standard" or the like (except sticking to, you know, the server rules and whatnot). This new channel will appear soon

🦀 CRAB 🦀

For N-Day, The Communist Bloc has joined the Crabs of the Apocalypse alliance with The West Pacific, The Pacific, Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Balder, Europeia, The Great North, United Kingdom, The Social Liberal Union, and The Leftist Assembly.

N-Day begins 25 September 21:00 UTC. 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.

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.

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.

While run by the Ministry of Information, the Daily News does not necessarily reflect the stance of the current administration. Please contact the Minister of Information The Passerine Islands on NationStates or Sam in the Regional Discord for any corrections, suggestions, questions, comments, or concerns.
