TSPtropolis Plot Summary:

PROLOGUE

The film is set in the year 2026, in the extraordinary Gothic skyscrapers of a corporate city-state, the TSPtropolis. Society has been divided into two rigid groups: one of rich forumside oligarchs, who live in luxury on the surface of The South Pacific in the lush skyscrapers; the other of workers, who live underground gameside, toiling to sustain the lives of the privileged up above. Entire shifts of workers are walking into large factories on a daily basis, relieving a batch of severely overworked colleagues who are brought down to the workers' city in large elevators.

The sons of the privileged rich families spend much of their leisure time in Treasure Island, an exclusive pleasure garden where their every need is tended to. Master of Ceremonies Hanguk-Nippon leads the festivities in Treasure Island. Aumeltopia, the son of city master Amerion, is being presented with female consorts 073 039 109 032 080 111 112 112 121 and Kerlodia, when the beautiful and angelical figure Auphelia enters the garden with a large group of workers' children (including Si-topia, The Solar System Scope, Tilipria, The Filippinas, The iron marauders, Central Swolo, Land Without Shrimp, Aidenfieeld, and others). She showcases them the lush lifestyle of the rich in contrast to their own poverty, and reminds the children that these are their "brothers", before she and the children are dismissed. Aumeltopia becomes infatuated with Auphelia, and follows her down into the working underworld. In the underworld, he experiences firsthand the toiling lifestyle of the workers and the capricious attitude of their Council on Regional Security overlords. He observes how an extremely overworked Lily Pad Nation inadvertently causes an explosion at the "RMB-Machine", seeing how the Council on Regional Security brings in new workers to keep the machine running before taking care of the wounded or killed in the accident. He even starts to hallucinate, seeing the RMB-Machine as the Shark God Erinor that workers are ritualistically sacrificed to. Shocked at what he sees, he runs to his father's office.

Amerion is conducting his business with his assistant Beepee when Aumeltopia enters, and tells him about the incident. Amerion reprimands Beepee for the incident, but seems more concerned with the fact that he had to hear it from his son rather than his assistant. Aumeltopia is appalled by how workers are treated, but his father defends this status quo as normal. Then Tsunamy, the guardian of the RMB-machine comes in. He shows Amerion papers containing an unknown schematic that the Council on Regional Security keep finding on the person of wounded workers. Again, Amerion is dismayed that he has to learn this from someone else and not Beepee, and proceeds to fire the latter. Aumeltopia leaves, and Amerion orders his fearsome henchman known as Farengeto to follow Aumeltopia, and send him updates on his son's whereabouts.

Aumeltopia follows the dismissed Beepee and narrowly saves him from killing himself. He asks for Beepee's help and receives his home address. Aumeltopia gets back to the factory and trades places and clothing with an overworked worker called Volaworand. He gives Volaworand Beepee's address and tells him to go there and wait for him. Farengeto has followed Aumeltopia to the factory, and does not realize that it is Volaworand who has now taken Aumeltopia's place. While driving to Beepee's address in Aumeltopia's private car, Volaworand is handed an advertisement for the Bantam Harbour pleasure district, and proceeds to go there instead of Beepee's home, followed by Farengeto.

Later, Aumeltopia's father Amerion consults with the elderly scientist Drystar, an old companion and rival. Drystar lives in an ancient cottage between the skyscrapers, and is in the process of building a robotic gynoid. Drystar wants to give the robot the appearance of Alice Parker, his former lover who left him for Amerion and died giving birth to Aumeltopia. Amerion has come to Drystar for information about the papers found on dead workers. At the same time, Aumeltopia himself learns that the paper schematic kept by the workers is, in fact, a map to Knowhere a secret meeting place in the city's catacombs, and he is invited by Zess, a colleague, to join after their shift is over. He follows the workers, as Drystar informs Amerion of the same. Drystar gives Amerion access to the Knowhere catacombs from his basement. Aumeltopia is surprised to find Auphelia, who has taken up the cause of the workers, as Amerion and Drystar are observing her from a separate cave.

Auphelia gives a passionate sermon where she tells of the Tower of Dispatch Revision, a work that was started by humanity in order to get to the heavens, like God Erinor. As the story goes, the work was never finished because Erinor gave all the workers a different subforums, meaning they could no longer talk to each other; but according to Auphelia, the communication problem was simply an allegory for the people being of different social positions, oligarchs and workers who could not effectively communicate and cooperate together. She advises the desperate workers not to start a revolution, and instead wait for the arrival of "The Delegate", who, she says, will unite the two halves of society: a "heart" that will mediate between the "mind" (the rich oligarchs) and the "hands" (the poor workers). Aumeltopia identifies himself as this Delegate, declaring his love for Auphelia. She tells him to meet in the cathedral the next day.

Drystar realizes that Amerion's son is the Delegate, but purposely doesn't tell him. Amerion persuades Drystar to give the robot Auphelia's appearance, as he wants to use the robot to tighten his control over the workers. Drystar complies, but hides his ulterior motives: he knows of Aumeltopia's and Auphelia's love, and wants to use the robot to pit Amerion against his son in revenge over losing Alice Parker to him. As soon as Amerion leaves, Drystar proceeds to chase Auphelia and abducts her to his house.

INTERMEZZO

The next day, Aumeltopia attends a sermon in the cathedral, where he learns of the signs of the Apocalypse. He has a vision in the form of a woman dressed like the Whore of Discord Chat, supported by the memes of the seven deadly sins around her, which frighten him. He returns to Beepee's home, but around the same time, Farengeto has finally accosted Volaworand. He beats him into giving up Beepee's address, and places Volaworand back into the factory. Aumeltopia goes to Beepee's apartment, and since Volaworand is not there, he tells Beepee that he will go in search of Auphelia. As he leaves, Farengeto comes and threatens Beepee.

Drystar finalizes his android design, and gives it the outer appearance of Auphelia. The real Auphelia is screaming, which is heard by Aumeltopia as he walks past Drystar's cottage. He enters but Drystar manages to trap him inside his basement. He send the fake Not Auphelia to Amerion's house in TSPtropolis, and releases Aumeltopia, telling him Auphelia is with his father. Amerion reprograms the fake Not Auphelia to undo all the work that her prototype has done. When Aumeltopia arrives home, he finds his father and fake Not Auphelia in a passionate embrace, and the shock causes him to go into a delirium. During an extended period full of hallucinations about Auphelia, the fake one is showcased in the presence of Amerion and Drystar as an exotic dancer in the upper city's Bantam Harbour nightclub: her harlot appearance is exactly as in Aumeltopia's vision of the Apocalypse, unleashing death and the seven sins as she causes discord among the rich young men of TSPtropolis, sending them into wild acts of debauchery and murder.

END OF INTERMEZZO

In the meanwhile, Aumeltopia wakes from his delirium and is informed by Beepee of what his father's spy is doing to TSPtropolis, setting young men up against each other. Aumeltopia finds it impossible to believe this is the same angelic Auphelia he knows. Farengeto reports to Amerion, who instructs him to let the workers do whatever they plan to do, as part of his big plan to let the workers start to revolt, so he can legally enforce violent banjections to quell their uprising. Drystar, on the other hand, tells the captive (real) Auphelia how the fake Not Auphelia is central to his plan to deceive Amerion, leading him to believe that fake Not Auphelia is doing his bidding, not knowing the robot is actually loyal to Amerion only.

Aumeltopia and Beepee go searching for Auphelia, descending to the worker's city, where they find Not Auphelia claiming their precious Delegate will not come, and encouraging the workers into a full-scale rebellion; Aumeltopia calls her out to be a fake, which causes a fight with the other workers. One of them, Curlyhoward, attacks him with a knife, but an escaped Volaworand intervenes, sacrificing his life by taking the stab. The workers and fake Not Auphelia leave for the elevators in order to destroy the RMB-Machine that keeps them enslaved. However, in their zeal, they forget about their children who are all still in the workers' quarters.

Amerion is eavesdropping on Drystar and real Auphelia, learning that Drystar is deceiving him, planning to have the factory destroyed and Aumeltopia killed. Amerion fights with Drystar and beats him unconscious before leaving, accidently setting Auphelia free in the process.

The angry mob of workers manage to break into the power station of the city. In a final attempt, Tsunamy, the guardian of the RMB-Machine, closes a set of giant security doors to stop them. Amerion returns to his office, getting the message from Tsunamy that thousands of angry workers have broken in. Still thinking he can use this to his advantage, Amerion orders Tsunamy to open the doors, over protests that the RMB-Machine keeps water out of the city. Workers and the fake Not Auphelia pour into the RMB-Machine and manage to get it to stop working, over Tsunamy's protests. As the machine is destroyed, the city's reservoirs start to overflow, flooding the workers' underground city and seemingly drowning the children left behind in the riot. Farengeto informs Amerion that Aumeltopia is among the workers, telling him that he will be responsible for thousands of deaths, including his own son.

Aumeltopia and Beepee finally find the real Auphelia, and together they arrive in time to sound the alarm. They rally the children and manage to heroically evacuate them to safety above, taking them to Treasure Island.

When the workers have finally come to their senses, Tsunamy gets them to realize the damage they have done, and that their children are lost. In anger, they attack the upper city, while fake Not Auphelia tells the rich people in Bantam Harbour to go to the streets and watch the workers destroy themselves. Drystar, meanwhile, wakes up, now completely insane and setting out to retrieve his robot in order to re-shape her as his lost lover Alice Parker.

Under the leadership of Tsunamy, the workers start looking for the human Auphelia, whom they hold responsible for their riot and their children's deaths. They find her and give chase, despite her attempts to inform them of the fake Not Auphelia. As they break into the city's entertainment district, they run into the Bantam Harbour crowd and inadvertently capture the robot Not Auphelia, while the real Auphelia manages to escape in the cathedral. The workers burn the captured Not Auphelia at the stake. Meanwhile, the true Auphelia is now chased by Drystar along the battlements of the city's cathedral. Aumeltopia despairs when he sees Not Auphelia at the stake, but then he and the workers realize that she is in fact a robot. He sees Drystar chasing the real Auphelia on the cathedral, and chases after them.

While Beepee informs a relieved Tsunamy and the workers that their children are safe, Amerion watches in terror as his son struggles with Drystar on the cathedral's roof. Aumeltopia finally gets the upper hand, and Drystar falls to his death.

Auphelia and Aumeltopia return to the street together, where Aumeltopia unites Amerion and Tsunamy, fulfilling his role as the "Delegate".

The final text states: THE MEDIATOR BETWEEN HEAD AND HANDS MUST BE THE HEART!

Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionist science-fiction drama film directed by Fritz Lang. Written by Thea von Harbou in collaboration with Lang, it stars Gustav Fröhlich, Alfred Abel, Rudolf Klein-Rogge and Brigitte Helm. Erich Pommer produced it in the Babelsberg Studios for Universum Film A.G. (UFA). The silent film is regarded as a pioneering science-fiction movie, being among the first feature-length movies of that genre. Filming took place over 17 months in 1925–26 at a cost of more than five million Reichsmarks.

Made in Germany during the Weimar period, Metropolis is set in a futuristic urban dystopia and follows the attempts of Freder, the wealthy son of the city master, and Maria, a saintly figure to the workers, to overcome the vast gulf separating the classes in their city and bring the workers together with Joh Fredersen, the city master. The film's message is encompassed in the final inter-title: "The Mediator Between the Head and the Hands Must Be the Heart".

Metropolis met a mixed reception upon release. Critics found it pictorially beautiful and visually powerful—the film's art direction by Otto Hunte, Erich Kettelhut and Kurt Vollbrecht draws influence from Bauhaus, Cubist and Futurist design, along with touches of the Gothic in the scenes in the catacombs, the cathedral and Rotwang's house—and lauded its complex special effects, but accused its story of naiveté. H. G. Wells described the film as "silly", and The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction calls the film's story "trite" and its politics "ludicrously simplistic". The film's alleged Communist message was also criticized.

The film's extensive running time also came in for criticism, and Metropolis was cut substantially after its German premiere, with a large portion of Lang's original footage removed. Many attempts have been made since the 1970s to restore the film. In 1984 Italian music producer Giorgio Moroder released a truncated version with a soundtrack by rock artists including Freddie Mercury, Loverboy and Adam Ant. In 2001 a new reconstruction of Metropolis was shown at the Berlin Film Festival. In 2008 a damaged print of Lang's original cut of the film was found in a museum in Argentina. After a long restoration process that required additional materials provided by a print from New Zealand, the film was 95% restored and shown on large screens in Berlin and Frankfurt simultaneously on 12 February 2010.

In 2001 the film was inscribed on UNESCO's Memory of the World Register, the first film thus distinguished.

The South Pacific

When an InfoWarez contributor shared a fake video of a TSP voting machine automatically casting ballots for a left-leaning candidate, it was just another day at the races in The South Pacific, a region known for it's Linkdelightful dramatic lurching from one consitutional crisis to the next over the past 16 years.

[TSP] “It was the main story all day Sunday and was somehow predictable. Many hoaxes with conspiracy theories circulated in the weeks prior to the voting day,” said Beepee the director of AlternaFactos, a TSP fact-checking organization, told VN in a message. “This was a hoax built on paranoia.”

The lead-up to TSP’s contentious delegate election, which had its first round of voting in the offsite forums, has been marred by misinformation on platforms like FaceRage and WhatShat. A deeply polarized society has provided fertile grounds for viral conspiracy theories about everything from the death of a politician to Lazarus voters rising from the dead to vote in TSP. Fact-checkers themselves have become targets of the chaos.

The fake voting machine video, which both Drystar and fellow fact-checker 073 039 109 032 080 111 112 112 121 quickly debunked, racked up thousands of retweets after being shared by Islands of unity — the son of right-wing candidate Roavin. InfoWarez’ Auphelia also amplified the hoax. That doesn’t even take into account Discord, the messaging platform where a good chunk of TSP misinformation comes from.

Over the past few weeks, TSP voters have expressed concern about the integrity of the election, which will end its second round of voting today — despite assurances from both regional and external election officials that voting machines are safe to use. And that distrust has manifested itself in an onslaught of voter fraud-related hoaxes on social media.

“There are tons of hoaxes related to fraud in the system,” said sitting Delegate Erinor. “Election Commissioner Farengeto informed us that only 0.33 percent of the system had any kind of bad functionality problems, so it’s very low. The Order of the Grey Wardens came to TSP to analyze the system, they probably already talked about it, and found that there is no fraud in the system, actually.”

“This is just bad, bad, bad information.”

With just 30 minutes left in the polls, Aumeltopia has taken a 6 vote lead in the week long election most media are saying is still too close to call.

Hanguk-Nippon Installs Electronic Voting Monitors in Legislature

One of the many new installations. Taken in the Imperial Diet Building, Seoul, Hanguk-Nippon.
Hanguk-Nippon has a long tradition of technological advancements and success. From televisions, video games, entertainment, automobiles, computers, and more, the government has long taken much pride in these achievements. Now, the government has planned to install new voting monitors in the Imperial Diet and National Imperial Council rooms, along with new e-voting touch-screen technology, and better air ventilation and circulation.
Hanguk-Nipponese E-Voting polls have hit an all-time high this year.
New polls have shown that the average Hanguk-Nipponese person has progressively become more optimistic about the prospect of e-voting over the last few years. "The transition from purely paper ballots will be swift one", the government says. They plan to ultimately drive a large recycling and storing initiative of unused ballot papers. This is predicted to set an example, and greatly reduce paper waste from the government's perspective. Such a large initiative can set an example for many people and many countries. "Those on the road to technological development and e-democracy are expected to be granted with such fortunes", the government says. "The era of the ballot box is coming to a close in Hanguk-Nippon. Now, extra meterials combined with new online security and 16 different recoding algorithems, have made the process of e-democracy much safer and the general decline of political spearheading has helped increase wariness and support of this all-government initiative. All registered parties in the legislature have so far agreed that this was a positive change, both for the people and the state. Hanguk-Nippon has made provisionary requests to the Government of Hokoan regarding a new modernization of the democratic process. We hope for the best with these new innovations", the government says.

Reizen Declaration of Independence
Source: LinkExample Times | Written by Frost | Nation: ...

The Reizen Independence Movement has formally declared independence from the Frost Empire. A copy of the Declaration has been delivered to the Oured Times and the Treasure Island Report:

An Austral translation:

Whereas, the solemn covenant made with the people of Reizen, and recorded in the Delphinium Archives of the Imperial Federation of Frost as the 98th chapter of the Act passed in the 2nd year of the Mirai era as been continually violated by the Frost government, and our rights usurped. Our humble petitions, addresses, protests, and remonstrances against this injurious and unconstitutional interference have been made in vain. Therefore, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and assume the powers of the heaven, that which entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all humans are created equal, and are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among them the pursuit of life, liberty, equality, and happiness. That to secure these rights governments are instituted and derive their powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government strays from the people and becomes destructive, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it and implement a new government, laying the foundation on these principles and organizing its powers to efficiently preserve the safety and happiness of the people. Prudence, dictates that governments long established should not be changed for light and frivolous causes; and accordingly, all experience has show that humanity is more inclined to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. (snip)

We, the Representatives of the Republic of Reizen, in General Parliament, Assembled, declare, that this free and united Province absolve all allegiance to the Frost Empire, and that the political connection between that Tyrant and Reizen is now dissolved. That as a free and independent Republic has full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States have the to right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

The Elections are Upon us Again
29/06/19
The Delegate Elections of June 2019 are upon us again! What an exciting time to be alive! During this time, I shall be giving you live updates, but also interviews and insights about the delegate elections.

The Delegate Elections are typically run like this, according to Linkthe Elections act. The delegate is elected using a two step process, one of which is forumside and the other gameside. Any legislator can announce their candidacy on the forums, and following that, the first round of voting will be conducted using approval voting. The two candidates with the highest number of approvals will then be subject to a regional poll. The winner of that poll shall be inaugurated as delegate.

Join me during the delegate elections as I bring you live updates from the forumside voting, as well as insights and interviews from some of the top figures in TSP!

Interview with Erinor
29/06/19
Agalaesia (Ag): What has it felt like to be the Delegate of TSP?

Seraph/ Erinor (Se): It has been a privilege but sadly, also this term, a bit of a burden. The issues with the changing nature of the RMB community weighed heavily on me and I didn't see a clear path through the storm that had generated. Despite being in the most powerful position in the region, I felt kinda powerless to deal with the conflicting elements of individual personalities and larger community groups, as well as what was appropriate and what was necessary for that part of the region to work as part of the whole. I'm still not fully happy with where we are and can take little credit for getting us even this far.

Ag: What are you most proud of doing as Delegate?

Se: I'm most proud of two things, really. Firstly, my endotarting and taking the region to a record high delegate endorsement count again. Secondly, it would have to be maintaining, even in the midst of what you might term "Floofgate", the respect of the majority of the active community and remaining someone people can turn to for advice and support. I'd have liked the opportunity to do more of that, actually, but I found it very difficult to remain an active part of the RMB. :(

Ag: What do you think TSP's next steps should be?

Se: Our next step should be to finalise the resolution on declaring the region Defender, vote on it and, if successful, push that forward in our interactions with new players and gameplay at large. We have a chance to really influence the next generation of players across the game and I think we should go for it!

Ag: Why do you feel that the RMB community respects you, and can turn to you for advice?

Se: I say that in the basis of the interactions I've had with RMBers, which has, on the whole, been of that nature.

Ag: Do you think that being an RMBer is vital to being a good Delegate? What do you hope the next Delegate will do to improve TSP at a gameside level?

Se: Whilst being a part of any individual part of our community (aside from the Assembly) isn't strictly necessary for a Delegate to perform their basic function, I prefer a Delegate who is willing to interact, or, at the very least, reach out to the different subsections of TSP. In particular I'd like to see a stronger relationship between the Delegate and the LC, using the Delegate position to provide some continuity between successive Local Councils.

Ag: How do you think Delegates can reach out successfully to several dichotomous groups within TSP?

Se: Mainly by making the effort, being friendly and approachable and showing an openness to understanding areas of the game she or he might not be familiar with.

Ag: Finally, the two elephants in the room! Who was your favourite Delegate (aside from yourself); and who do you hope will be Delegate?

Se: Tsunamy and Romyraveepee. :P

Holtzclaw will be the 42nd President of Houtengrond.

Holtzclaw gained national attention and a rise in support for her anti-establishment and centrist policy proposals, and claimed that she was disgruntled with "Left-Right partisan politics", Holtzclaw proposed notable Laissez-faire economic policies, after becoming disgruntled with Keynesian and Social Democratic policies, citing them as the reason for the 2017 Economic Collapse. Holtzclaw's campaign was noted as "Centre-Populist" and "Libertarian". Kennamer emphasized her political experience and denounced Holtzclaw for her "Ignorance in Political Science". Kennamer ran a campaign on supporting citizen's recovery, and proposed policies that would widely support minorities, LGBTQ+ community, and females. Kennamer advocated for keeping the current Social Democratic system.
Holtzclaw faced a BCI investigation throughout most of her campaign, over the death of her husband, filmmaker Joseph Holtzclaw. Conspiracy Theorist, and Opponents attacked Holtzclaw regarding the possibility of foul play in her husband's death.

Background
Article Five, Section 3 of the Constitution, states that Citizens of Houtengrond can begin a petition for a recall election of the President, the petition must gain signatures that make up over 3% (Though generally approved at 12%) of the national population. On December 8th, 2016, a Petition began after President Olmsted and her administration were put under investigation for possible collusion with foreign intelligence to infiltrate the National Conservative Party Committee. On December 1st, 2017, the Federal Court approved of the Petition, and scheduled the election for June 22nd, 2019 - June 25th, 2019. The President must be 30 years of age, a citizen of Houtengrond (since below the age of 18) along with being a citizen for at least 12 years.

The Federal Court deemed Olmsted ineligible to run to complete her term in office.

Primary Process & Delegation Selection
The Delegation Selection took place in July 2018, in which the Federal Court selected 137,227 Delegates, along with 68,613 super delegates. Political Party's Primaries for Presidential nominees took place between July - November 2018. In June, voters indirectly elected their party delegates, whom elected the Nominees.

Aftermath
One June 24th, a day after the voter's election. President Allison Olmsted resigned, after new evidence was leaked that incriminated her and most of her administration, she along with most of her administration surrendered themselves into the BCI.

The canadian republic colonies

Technological Advancement Act

by The canadian republic colonies

The Canadian Republic Colonies, after careful fiscal, social, and international studies, enacts the Technological Advancement Act. The Technological Advancement Act declares that Higher Speed Internet has become a pillar of not just our national society, but society at large. It is nearly impossible to participate in daily life here and abroad without access to such a connection. Many government services has transition to being based online. These tools are meant to provide access to citizens wherever they may be. It allows for faster, easier, more efficient government and private sector transactions. In addition, library, research, education, and other necessary civil institutions have been able to make large scale discoveries, advance communication, and tailor learning to the individual in their life circumstances instead of forcing a uniform one way only approach. Statistical studies have shown immense improvements in school graduation rates, improved access to academic resources, an overall decrease in illiteracy, and increased library borrower rates (in addition to reducing unnecessary late fines on patrons who may not be able to make it to the library on a given date and time). Medical advancement has continued to thrive via online networks and knowledge abounds inspiring greater public health.

It is the position of the Commonwealth of the Canadian Republic Colonies that access to these vital services is indeed important. They are the pillars of society and have been since the dawn of humanity. Just as roads were needed to access these services in person, there are new forms of roads that our infrastructure is severely lacking in. All citizens are to have access to roads needed to gain vital services in our physical society. Now that these roads have changed in medium thanks to technological advancements, it would be inhumane for the Canadian Republic Colonies to allow these vital services that are a birth right to all citizens, to remain only accessible for a select few based on economic stature. This classist and elitist view is not a view harboured by the people of this nation. Aligning with the changes in our world, we too must advance. We hereby enact the following to ensure the human rights and advancement of an equal opportunity to the pursuit of happiness to all citizens without discrimination:

First, The establishment of the Department of Internet Technology Advancements, or DITA whose responsibilities are outlined below.

Second, All Canadian Republic Colonies Citizens are to have access to a fiber optic network with a minimum download speed of 50 Mbps and upload speed of 20 Mbps, with the option to purchase higher bandwidths from an authorized ISP.

Third, The government via DITA shall authorize and regulate ISPs who will apply to be contractors of and servicers of this expansive network only at an in residence or in business level. All residents and businesses will be allowed to chose their respective ISP who will "hook in" to the main line within the property at the designated secured DITA boxes. Properties will be connected to this main line at the street level. Street level above and underground infrastructure is built, operated by, maintained by, and serviced by only the federal government's Department of Internet Technology Advancements or, DITA. No individual ISP or collective group may in any way, shape, or form, control, build, operate, make changes to, or interfere with this main network. No privatization may occur at any time of this vital lifeline to ensure net neutrality to all locations and citizens.

Fourth, DITA will also be responsible for connecting, servicing, auditing, and maintaining the main board of all properties where Individual ISPs connect to this mainframe to provide individual service to those citizens who have chosen to connect to this main connection via that specific ISP. These connections are not to be reduced in speed and no filtering of web traffic to certain destinations are allowed to occur outside of those put in place by the Canadian Republic Colonies. ISPs have no authority to make these restrictions and only DITA or the federal government holds this ability, which is expressly limited to prohibiting access to criminal, terroristic, and/or other illegal sources. Thus, all connections will have the same access to the same expansive network ensuring that no individual ISPs can discriminate against another or against a citizen or business's choice of operator, traffic, internet activity or any other personal internet choices. Should an ISP be found in a court of law to be violating these or any other federal regulations imposed on their industry, they effectively void their contract with the government effective immediately. All connections previously built by the ISP including any and all equipment, lines, or other infrastructure immediately becomes the sole property and responsibility of DITA. Any citizen or business who was doing business with the individual ISP will be then taken over immediately by DITA. Citizens and business will then have up to 6 months to choose a new ISP for their individual access to the main network, to allow other ISPs and citizens to make necessary preparations, changes, and an opportunity to make an informed economic decision. The ISP also immediately ceases to collect any past due or outstanding balance on citizens and businesses and are required to refund the entire month previous to the court's determination to all citizens serviced by the ISP who have made that month's payment (if any) (the only citizens who would be making any payment would be those who chose to buy into speed packages above and beyond the standard speeds and package guaranteed by the federal government.) In addition, the ISP agrees to immediately refund all payments made by DITA and the Canadian Republic Colonies to provide the basic required speed package to citizens and businesses to DITA and the Canadian Republic Colonies

Fifth, While 82% of Canadian Colenisians already have access to these speeds, the goal is 90% by 2020 and 100% by 2021. This long-term strategy considers the challenges faced in servicing rural areas, and comes with incentives, including access to a $750 million fund directed toward infrastructure investment.

Sixth, All current subscriptions by citizens and businesses will continue to be active until January 1, 2020. On January 1, 2020, the main line shall become active and any and all other private secondary main lines will immediately be fully shut down and inoperable with absolutely no activity allowed. These lines will then be removed by DITA and the individual ISPs will be credited at their appraised values by DITA and the Canadian Republic Colonies to limit any impact on the ISP due to loss of this valuable investment in their infrastructure. This will allow them a "fresh" start by taking away the burden of old outdated systems from the ISP and allowing them to immediately focus on their role in this new nationwide network.
All citizens must make a choice of their respective ISP no later than July 1, 2019 via the dedicated DITA portal, or by sending a post mailed form to DITA. This is to allow ISPs the time to prepare for changes. Failure to select an ISP will result in a random assignment of ISP by DITA. The random assignments are balanced in such a way that no individual ISP is to have any advantage over another.

East Lodge

The Max Barry should host meme review dispatch got me thinking:

Max Barry on The Masked.
It would be perfect!

Just think about that for a minute.
An author and game developer, goes on a show where you sing, and try to stay in your mask.

No one would see it coming! (Maybe except me) and it would be great.

But that burns the question...

What would he sing? You would think some kind of, techno, pop, sci-fiesque song, matching the books.

I don't know; I don't think Max Barry can sing, but I think going on The Mask would match his style completely!

Rabbitz

Elemental Tea
    One of the sacred teas of Rabbitz, Elemental Tea was first brewed in a meditation monastery on the high snowy mountains of Harevyx. Infused inside it are spices from the The South Pacific, The North Pacific, The East Pacific, and The West Pacific. It is truly a masterfully crafted tea, worth of being called a highly prestigious beverage. Although this tea may be mass produced across all of Rabbitz, the original recipe for it was lost through time. Legend has it that the tea masters who first crafted have past it on the craft to there apprentices, and that the original recipe still exists in that exact same monastery (the walk is incredibly long but the taste is worth it). This tea is often used as a gift of very good faith to allies of great value, if we had some. The color of the teas itself (imagine a circle divided into fourths) has one quarter with the palm tree TSP emblem, one quarter with the lotus TEP emblem, one quarter with the dragon TWP emblem, and one quarter with the coat of arms TNP emblem. The time it takes to brew it at the monastery can range from hours to days. The tea tastes like inner peace as the actual taste is indescribable.

    Allies with possession of the tea: None so far
    Nations that would love it: Hanguk-Nippon
    Nations pending shipment: Volaworand

    Sultanate of a Hundred Islands
    A brief overview of the Sultanate of Thuraakunu
    ިބްރަހިމް ނަސިރް - Ibrahim Nasir (@IbNasir)
    Monday, August 20th, 2018, 5:42 PM KST (Kédévaahéra Standard Time)

    Introduction

    Welcome to the idyllic Sultanate of Thuraakunu (ތްހުރާކުނު). A tiny isolated island nation bounded by all sides by the deep blue sea, endowed with beautiful white-sand beaches, breathtaking scenery, beautiful wildlife and vast groves of coconut trees aplenty. Our beautiful nation has no counterpart in the entire world in terms of its unique geography and topography.

    The Sultanate of Thuraakanu consists of one single atoll, notable for its unique shape. Five islands surround a single larger island in the middle of the atoll, the island of Maliku. This island is home to the royal town of Huraa, a small 'town' that consists of the Sultan's palace, multiple houses housing the several-hundred strong noble families, barracks for guards and servants, a harem and the famed red-and white Checkered Mosque that is visited by most of the island's male worshippers during Islamic Friday prayers.

    One thousand residents of Thuraakunu live not on the Maliku atoll but on the small Autonomous Collectivity of Relong- a small atoll not far from Maliku with its own government governing over the Ipachi Relong people who are the descendants of Dulungese seafarers who spread Islam to the archipelago.

    Thuraakanu is tiny- seriously tiny. With a land area of only around 25.9 km² and a miniscule population of 7,883 people, it is one of the smallest countries in the world!

    The island country features a single atoll with palm-fringed beaches and the bustling town of Kédévaahéra which is the home to the majority of the island's population. Several uninhabited islets and sandbanks lay around the main atoll which provide a refuge for seabirds and is protected by the Amaravathy government as the Velanitihu Seabird Conservation Area.

    One of the smallest and most remote nations in the world, this unspoiled corner of the Lotus Sea offers a peaceful, and non-commercialized environment that is ideal for rest and relaxation. The spectacular marine environment consisting of a vast expanse of ocean interspersed with atolls, magnificent lagoons, coral reefs and small islands all provide one of the most unique ambience in the world.

    Thuraakunu has a distinctive Islamic culture of island people who vigorously maintain their unique culture through legends, songs and dance.


    History

    The earliest inhabitants of modern Thuraakunu did not leave any archeological remains as their buildings were probably built of wood, palm fronds and other perishable materials, which would have quickly decayed in the salt and wind of the tropical climate, with the exception of small stone residences believed to be a symbol of power and resided in by chiefs and other important members of the community in early Thuraakunu society. Studies of early oral, lingustic and cultural traditions have led to the conclusion that these early settlers were mostly Dravidian fishermen and sailors who are believed to be one of the first humans to have spotted the islands.

    Depictions of these first societies in ancient legends and local folklore see a matriarchal society with each atoll ruled by a chief queen (the foolhuma-dhaitha; ފޮޮލްހުމަ-ޛަިތްހަ) according to some accounts or by others and were strictly monogamous and prohibited divorce in contrast to modern Thuraakunu culture. Arab traders and sailors visited the islands during this period and provided accounts of an island kingdom ruled by a Queen named Rehendihaar. These early Queens were theocratic rulers and functioned as preistesses, worshipping heliolatric, selenolatric and astrolatric religions.

    The nation at the time was divided into tens of small theocratic chiefdoms which frequently warred with eachother over resources and religion. A strong underlying layer of Dravidian population and culture survives in modern Thuraakunu, with the Maliku Bas language having a clear Dravidian substratum which also appears in place names, kinship terms, poetry, dance, and religious beliefs. It is believed that these priestess-queens ruled the different islands until the 13th century.


    Lōmāfānu (ލޯމާފާނު)- copper
    plates on which inscriptions had been
    added- told a significant portion of
    early Thuraakunu history.

    In the mid-13th century, the Kingdom of Dama Vansa united the atoll under their single banner after conquering most other chiefdoms with their well-equipped warriors due to their superior wealth. The the seafaring merchants of Dama Vansa were prominent in the Lotus Sea area. One location which was popular with Thuraakunu sailing vessels (dhoni; ޛޮނި) was the island of Dulvipika or Dulung. The significance of this early contact with Dulung is that it is the first time many of these traders were introduced to the religion of Islam which quickly gained popularity amongst the merchant caste.

    Islam was brought over to Dama Vansa with the return of merchants who had converted to Islam or traders from Dulung who brought pieces of the Qur'an which was extensively studied by officials of Queen Kamanaar of Dama Vansa. Although initially rejected and persecuted by the ruling family, Queen Kamanaar converted to Islam in 1387 (according to most copper plate grants) after studying a translation of the Qur'an by an Arab merchant. Queen Kamanaar adopted the Islamic name of Khadija and changed her title to the Islamic Sultana on top of the traditional title of Adi Raja or King of the Sea. Following the Islamic concept that before Islam there was the time of Jahiliya (ignorance), the introduction of Islam at the end of the 13th century is considered the cornerstone of the country's history.

    Several Lōmāfānu (ލޯމާފާނު)- copper plates on which inscriptions had been added- told of the persecution of the pagan religions that the people of Dama Vansa had worshpped prior to the conversion. Preistesses were taken to Huraa and beheaded, temples burnt and destroyed while statues of pre-Islamic deities were difigured, burnt and broken into pieces before being thrown in the sea.

    The Rajahnate of Relong
    More information here:
    The Rajahnate of Relong was established in the 1370s by Dulungese seafarers and explorers who arrived at the atoll of Holhavhu during the trade between Thuraakunu and Dulung. Local traders and fishermen from the Kingdom of Dama Vansa were occasionally lost at sea and became stranded in one of the islands of the Holhavhu. Eventually they were rescued and brought back home. However, these islands were judged to be too far away from Thuraakunu to be settled permanently, and thus for many centuries the Holhavhu islands were ignored by their northern neighbours.

    It was during this period in which Dulungese traders first established a trading post on the uninhabited archipelago to facilitate trade with Thuraakunu which later blossomed into the first Islamic kingdom on Thuraakunu, the Rajahnate of Relong. The title of 'Rajah' was bestowed upon the Chief of Relong upon her conversion to Islam at the hands of Dulungese Muslims in 1387.

    Geography

    Thuraakunu is made up of five tiny coral islands forming a single atoll group. The islands add up to give a land area of only 25.9 km², making us the smallest country in the Lotus Sea and by extension the entirety of the Western Isles!

    Thuraakunu is the lowest country in the entirety of the Western Isles, with maximum and average natural ground levels of only 2.4 metresand 1.5 metres above sea level with the highest point being only at 5 meters tall! More than 80 per cent of the country's land is composed of coral islands which rise less than one metre above sea level which thus makes our beautiful homeland at serious threat by rising sea levels. At current rates, the entire country may be under water by 2100 if we are not careful.

    Thuraakunu consists of a single atoll with palm-fringed beaches with a single island in the middle of the atoll surrounded by five smaller outer islands. The capital, Huraa, is located on the island of Maliku in the center of the atoll while the largest city is Kédévaahéra on Fua Mulaku island.

    Politics

    HRH Sulthana Khadijah
    Raadhafathi Thakurufaanu

    Thuraakunu is a constitutional monarchy, meaning the monarch exercises her authority in accordance with the constitution. Did you know that Thuraakunu has one of the most unique political systems in the (Muslim) world? The eldest member of the family, whether male or female, became its head and ruler, the Sulthana. This is definately an oddity in a Muslim-majority country which thus makes Thuraakunu one of the most progressive Muslim states. Criticism of Her Majesty is held to be contrary to Thuraakunu culture and etiquette.

    In accordance to its tiny size and population, Thuraakunu's legaslative body, the People's Majlis, is the smallest legislature in the world with only 9 members- 5 representatives of villages and 4 elected on a common roll. Elections are held under a simple plurality system, with electors in the five villages electing one member per village by majority vote, and four members from a common roll.

    Political parties were nearly unheard of in Thuraakunu as all members of the People's Majlis were non-partisan. In 2015, however, the Qaumee Islamiyah Party was formed between Islamist candidates for the Majlis which thus made the first and only political party in Thuraakunu. In the latest 2016 election, the Qaumee Islamiyah Party won three seats in the Majlis and supported four out of five village representatives which has thus allowed it to participate in government.

    Interestingly however, it has been speculated that a political bloc of secularist politicians may be setting up a political party to contest the Qaumee Islamiyah's dominance of politics since its formation.

    Elections in Thuraakunu are held every three years, with the next election being held in early-2019.

    Law
    After the Qaumee Islamiyah Party first participated in government in 2016, a referrendum was held that year to enact policies which effectively meant that the country would be governed by the Islamic Sharia Law. Since then, female government employees are required to wear the hijab while all citzens must dress modestly with clothing that cover the arwah, athough non-Muslim women are allowed to leave their arms below the elbow, legs below the knee and head uncovered.

    New laws or qanun were put in place in accordance to Islamic regulations, such as criminal penalties for violations of Sharia on "belief, ritual, and promoting Islam," which contains the Islamic attire requirement while also prohibiting the consumption and ansale of alcohol in Thuraakunu, prohibiting gambling in Thuraakunu and also a qanun on the payment of alms.

    Enforcement of the laws are the responsibility of the Thuraakunu Police Service and their specialized Hisbah Board. It is recommended that travelers enquire with us if they are unclear about what laws apply to them to have the best Thuraakunu experience.

    Defence

    Interior and Defense during an exercise with
    the Suvurnian Republican Army.

    With Thuraakunu being such a small country, defense is the responsibility of the Thuraakunu Department of Interior and Defence which consists of both the Thuraakunu Police Service and the Thuraakun Coast Guard. The Department of Interior and Defence consist of 75 men and women in total, while a further 20 volunteers make up the Royal Bodyguard. The Coast Guard has a total of four vessels, the flagship TRV Kamanaar patrol boat and three small inshore patrol boats which help keep the country and its fisheries safe.

    In recent years, Thuraakunu has reached out to other nations to assist in terms of defence. Negarakita and Thuraakunu have entered into a Strategic Partnership in late 2018 which has entailed a corvette of the Suvurnian Republican Navy to be deployed in Thuraakunu year-round while a garrison of the Suvurnian Republican Army is deployed in Thuraakunu to train and advise the Thuraakunu Department of Interior and Defense.

    Yearly, Thuraakunu and Suvurnia hold Exercise Adhalaath which aims to enhance the interoperability between the Suvurnian Republican Army and Thuraakunu Department of Interior and Defense in order to effectively undertake counter-terrorism operations in urban or semi-urban environments. Operation Ekuverin is also held to increase cooperation between the two nations in which Suvurnian and Thuraakunu naval and aerial forces are deployed to sweep the seas around Thuraakunu and Suvurnia of smuggling boats and illegal fishing operations which mutually benefits both sides by clearing the seas of threats while also being an opportunity to train both forces in combattng sea-borne threats.


    Economy


    Demographics
    Ethnic Groups
    The largest ethnic group in Thuraakunu are the Maliki, native to the Thuraakunu archipelago and speak the Maliku Bas language, although there exists several dialects on different islands. They are principally an Indo-Aryan people, having traces of Middle Eastern, Dravidian and Ipachi genes in the population due to the reputation of the islands as being a significant trading port. The Maliki have a very distinct culture compared to its neighbours and it is recommended to observe Maliki festivals and ceremonies while in the country to get a feel of the exotic cultural bonds of the island!

    Although the Maliki dominate the population, it is to note that 14% of the population are Relongese. The Relongese are Ipachi peoples who are the descendants of seafarers and traders from Dulung who settled on the Holhavhu atoll while spreading Islam to Thuraakunu. The first Muslim Sultana of the isalnds, Damanhaar, awarded their Chief with the title of 'Rajah' if he pledged allegience to the Sultana. Since then, the Relongese have remained a significant portion of the populaton of Thuraakunu albeit mostly remaining in their autonomous chiefdom. Visiting Relong for its highly unique culture, language and traditions is a must-see for those interested in learning about the island's cultural makeup.

    Some social stratification exists on the islands. It is not rigid, since rank is based on varied factors, including occupation, wealth, Islamic virtue, and family ties. Instead of a complex caste system, there was merely a distinction between noble (bēfulhu / ބޭފުލްހު) and common people, with members of the noble class living in Maliku. The Thuraakunu government has tried its best to eliminate social stratification in modernizing and democraticizing the country, which has been extremely sucessful.

    Roughly 7% of the population are resident foreigners, the majority of which being Suvurnian. There are 500 Suvurnians in Thuraakunu, making them the largest group of foreigners working in that country. It is actually sometimes believed that the number of Suvurnians are undercounted and there may actually be around a thousand!


    One of the oldest mosques in Thuraakunu- the
    Checkered Mosque. Because of its unique and
    beautiful architecture it is one of the landmark
    buildings on the island of Maliku.

    Religion
    After the long period of Jahiliya in which the residents of Thuraakunu believed in pagan faiths, Dulungese traders introduced Islam. Thuraakunu converted to Islam by the mid-12th century. The islands have had a long history of Sufi orders, as can be seen in the history of the country such as the building of tombs and can be frequently seen near mosques.

    At present Islam is the official religion of the entire population, as adherence to it is required for citizenship. There are no non-Muslim citizens of Thuraakunu. Thuraakunu is governed under the Islamic Sharia Law policies.

    Lily Pad Nation Volaworand


    Photo of Renigár Flipómáa, the suspected theif

    Ceremony Interrupted!
    - Jack Tung, Amanda Shi

    Lily Pad’s official Volaworand medal ceremony is interrupted by a dashing frog in Lily Gardens Thursday night.

    Lily the Pad has carelessly given away medals in the past for mundane reasons, but the government has recently sought a solution by ratifying her decisions with an official ceremony.

    The first every ceremony was set to award Volaworand the title and medal of Spring Peeper.

    “We consider Volaworand a well enough friend to gossip with,” Lily said in clarification of what the title means.

    As the Grand Pope Frog was about to crown Henry Davis, who is the acting scholar on all things Volaworand, with the medal, a loud pop was heard from out of the crowd.

    Dapper man and federally employed Wizard Renigár Flipómáa appeared, snatching the medal, and kidnapping Henry Davis.

    Not much is know about how or why such an event occurred, but police are investigating the situation. So far Renigár Flipómáa is in hiding, and has not released his reasons for interrupting the ceremony but anti-Volaworand sentiment is suspected.

    “We we’re doing a ceremony thing,” Lily Pad said, “cool, I guess, but I’m sure the title alone is worth it.”

    We may not be too sure your paddyness. We just can’t be too sure.

    Oh boy, this is a handful. 3 competitors (including my puppet Cheesy Cheese Island) are competing for the most upvoted spot. By this point I have no clue who will be on top. Will it be this telegram, (3.090% chance of happening), The Egg? (72.821% chance), The Cheese? (37.511% chance), or the Dispatch? (14.731% chance)? Who will beat the odds? By this point, I don't have a clue. We'll just have to find out.

    TC'S LOCAL COUNCIL ELECTION CAMPAIGN

    Hai, TSP citizen I am sorry for releasing my election campaing very late.But I am happy for finishing the campaign.

    RBM MODERATION
    The moderation RBM post must be done as the new nation hesitate to chat in RBM.I had experienced that.The new nation's must be encouraged to chat in RBM.And the guidelines must be made easy for newbie in TSP.This will be immediately made if I get elected.

    TSP'S SPECIAL BROADCAST SYSTEM

    THE SOUTH PACIFICis the 2nd largest region in NS but the broadcasting system is very old. Only regional dispatch is the official site for announcement.Therefore, the newbies cannot get time to time detail as they don't know about it very clearly.Currently, New haudenosaunee confederacyis typing newspaper but it is not official.Thus NHC newspaper must be made as official newspaper of TSP.This will be immediately made if I get elected.

    SWAN AWARD IMPROVEMENT
    SWAN AWARD is currently given in the TSP, but the award is not reached the enough support in TSP. The swan award must be given for other categories too. And new award must be established for the best nations in different categories for an year.This encourage nation to be perfect in the category they are good.

    Citizen's Of TSP Please vote me as I am running for the first time in LC election.
    THANK YOU

    Havenfell

    Havenfell has been a rather quiet place to be these days. Queen Melania is often shut away in her office silently tending to the nation, occasionally stepping out to address some problems to prevent the nation from ceasing to exists altogether. It's a rough time for the monarch. The sleepless nights, the hours she has to spend studying alone, the paperwork, oh the paperwork. The Havenfell nation still misses its ties to the South Pacific region. Friendships with other nations have fallen dormant. They're not gone, just merely left quiet as Havenfell remains unheard from. The Queen wishes that soon she will be able to reestablish her contact with the other nations in the region. She once had a steady influence and relevance within the South Pacific and hopes to regain it someday soon.

    Commonwealth Of Astoria

    As all of you know or may not know :( I am running for LC a position of which I would be honored to get the chance to fill. The South Pacific is a special place full of amazing and special individuals and nations. Of which I have gotten to know over the many years, and hope to continue to maintain awesome relationships with. I am running because I have not held this role before, I would like to contribute more to the South Pacific, I am online actively and the South Pacific is something that is important to my life, and I would like to put my energy that in already actively spending on the South Pacific into doing better things.

    I would like to see the South Pacific continue to bring in new nations and people, continue to be a fair and democratic region, continue to have engaging and active roleplay.

    I pledge to be fair, reasonable and to not judge people, I expect each and every member of the South Pacific to respect each other even if someone shares a different view on something.

    The South Pacific is the best region for a reason. Let's continue to make sure that it stays such.

    I do not endorse bullying I will crush bullies!
    I want to ensure that the South Pacific continues to grow and attract new nations that will be positive influences.
    I want to maintain positive useful polls, ones that the people want. Polls that matter.
    I want to vanquish any and all disrespectful nations and individuals from the South Pacific, I have no tolerance for any kind of hate.

    Remember everyone, the people in the South Pacific matter more than the people they elect, the people hold the voice and power, elected officials just serve to interpret and put into play what the amazing people of the South Pacific desire.

    Now, you may ask, how is someone who is not qualified to run, isn’t in the running, and has no desire to run, participating in the election.

    The answer is simple.

    I’m not.

    Because I’m lazy.

    East Lodge

    I have a basic idea for plot...
    I might need some help with it, so if you have ideas for any plots, characters, subplots, character arcs, melodramas, or anything, I will do my best to see if it works.

    My idea: (loosely)

    Life is peaceful in TSP, with the occasional killing or throwing off a cliff, maybe skinning a fox, but it is pure fun and repressed sadistic urges.

    Until one day Midand comes up with this dispatch about this Death Count. It hits big and TSP enters an extreme holocaustesque massacre.

    Everyone is killed, and everyone kills. However there are common killers who always attack. The survivors( surprise surprise us with reviv-o-matics) devise a plan.

    They plan to capture the killers, then sedate them and destroy the Death Count and all copies. This doesn't work. Auphelia kills them too. She breaks the reviv-o-matic, and no one is alive.

    Or so it seems, because The Solar System Scope and Estania (I can't spell your name, TNP'er) ran away the morning before they left. They refuses to come out of hiding, for fear of dying yet another time. They cry and cry, and give away their position. They fight some unnamed killers with random household items, but can't keep on. They decide to run away nation]Estantia[/nation] in TSSS' arms as they run away some more.

    Finally they find an abandoned grave yard full of reviv-o-matic builders who also specialize in other machines for survival. This is where they find East Lodge and Sword of summer making plans for something strange, and they don't know what it is.

    They find Concrete Slab scoping the area armed with flamethrowers and blades, watching for something to fight.

    So the furballs stay in the robots' place for a while while they build their tools and lay low so Auphelia trusts she can relax for a little bit without interuptions.

    They look around the area, and find pictures of many different people. When Estantia asks who they are, they all find out they are people who the robots have tried their best to protect, but they never came back. They suddenly get artificially sad and try to carry on with the reviv-o-matics, first aid kits, potions, rays, and armors.

    The floofballs decide to leave for a little bit to get fresh air and to let everyone else forget about the moments before. They find and old SPIT shop and rob the place, only to find someone there. They can't trust anybody at this point, so they run away crying. This is when they spot Concrete Slab and they want him to protect them. He picks up Estantia and starts singing some video game music, and they blow their cover. The floofs get scared, but CS charges at the hyped killers.

    He utterly slays them. The floofs are scared of course. They find East Sakhlin's brownie shop. They decide to buy some brownies, since there was someone there before in the SPIT shop.

    They loose control and order a ton of brownies. Like a lot. They start to get sick and high, and they loose consciousness. They wake up in a cell, and Concrete becomes a brick, and hops in the wall, so it can look like someone escaped. Estantia crawls away out of the cell, and The Solar System Scope clings to the unseen ceiling. Guards pass the door, and think it's accidently locked. They open the door and walk away, whistling a tune and spinning the keys in their fingers.

    The gang then leave together and find they were in Jaxon's house. They were locked in the basement; East Sakhlin took them to Jaxon's basement, to be tortured by him and his friends, Yansu, Totally not east lodge, New Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the other torturers in the RMB, I mean region.

    So Concrete gives the others weapons and fights everyone, but he goes down, leaving everyone to their own devices. They run.

    They run to a cave, and camp there.
    The robots back in the graveyard wonder if they should hang up a picture yet, but they decide to wait a week.
    The floofs find a banquet hall, but say they are Auphelia.
    They are thrown out the window.
    The screen moves towards the floor below, where the servants are given scrapes and unwanted bits.
    They are then killed by Kerlodia, who rampages in and shoots them all.
    Kerly talks to the floofs and finds out they want to get back to the Graveyard.

    She tps them back.
    They all stay there for a little bit, and Kerly then turns East, Concrete, and Sword into Kawaii Neko People, and they hate it.
    "You're so cute! I love it!"

    They give TSSS and Estantia the gear, and they have a mini fashion show. Then they're off to fight Auphelia.
    Concrete turns back to normal with a ray, and helps them train.

    They then come fight Auphelia. They make it to the castle to fight, and there they find Poppy sitting watching with popcorn. "Eeeeee!" "I can't wait! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!"

    They fight Auphelia, and lose (I can't do anything with fight scenes... sry)

    They save the day, and revive everyone. Everything is now at peace; and the Death Count is gone.

    Note: This is bad. I just had to write something down before I forgot it all. I'll fix it tommorow, and it will be better

    Zess

    Up first we have a guest who needs no introduction! Aw heck, I'll give him one anyway! Give it up for Aidenfieeld, the owlish LC runner!

    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    I have more experience than most of the candidates (other than CS and Auphelia), and I am focusing on promoting WA, forum, and RMB activity, instead of just one.

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    My proudest moment on NS was getting elected into the Local Council.

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    My least proudest moments on NS were probably my first 20 or-so posts, as they were unbelievably cringy.

    4.Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    I need to place blame in part on myself for this one: RMB games. At the beggining of my previous term, I played maybe 3, then realised how hard it was to do on an active RMB. Hopefully this term, I will try to do them once a week, and in Psomewhere.

    5. Is there any aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never come back? If so, why?
    I haven't really seen much that has left that I don't want to bring back.

    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    Uh...sure. What would you like?

    Next up is the walking meme and wall dropping superstar of The South Pacific, New Haudenosaunee Confederacy!

    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    TLDR: I can suppress illegal posts that aren't suppressed by other LCs, and I often do things with the community. (sorry I typed a lot lol)
    One way is that I am more likely to keep the RMB more moderated. As you most likely know, I am the writer of Southern Daily News, so I read literally everything. The current LC only suppressed posts they're online for, which is not good for people (like me) who read every RMB post and it's also not good when looking back on older parts of the RMB. Because I read everything, I find most illegal posts. If you need evidence of this, then here are some examples: 1, 2, 3, and there's definitely more. Another way is that I've been active in the community for over a year now, and I've done various things that people have cared about or at least noticed, including Southern Daily News (with the Obituary and Challenge of the Day), various coding projects relating to NS, which include https://nationstates-custom-census--crystalliccoder.repl.co/ custom census stats , https://nationstates-wiki-generator--crystalliccoder.repl.co a Wiki factbook generator , a https://nationstates-live-rmb-feed--crystalliccoder.repl.co/ live RMB feed , and I'm currently working on a card battle game using the NS trading cards owned by a nation. I've also participated a lot in RP, both character-based and nation-based, participated in the SPSF, and made horrible roses are red poems, which would eventually become something more community members would do.

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    I have about 20 proudest moments in NS. Well, not really, but I've done quite a lot of things I consider a proud moment. I'd say my proudest moment would be actually moving to TSP. Other proud moments for me could be when I got my card of Fudgetopia, when I joined the SPSF Reserve (which is kinda dead now), and when I started Southern Daily News.

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    Probably back when I was in the WA and I submitted horrible proposals.

    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    Techolandia's organized and structured RP. I found it to be quite fun. I tried to keep it alive by remaking his 26x TSSS RP dispatch, but all this kind of RP died with Techo's nation. I don't have to be an LC to do this, obviously. My idea is to have planned RP events where nations are given a scenario and maybe they have a couple hours to RP it or something, with me to moderate godmodding. Of course, I, once again, don't have to actually be an LC to do this, but it's still a fun idea and I'll probably start doing it after the elections of people want to.

    5: Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    Yes. http://tspforums.xyz/thread-6620.html Defamation , or anything close to it. If everybody misinterpreted posts of a user to mislead people on their political views, then people would probably leave TSP and think we're all communist, or something like that, which is obviously not ideal.

    6: Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    Coffee sucks. Besides, I can advertise myself, and I think that's also illegal...

    11) Bribery shall be defined as the receiving or offering of undue support by or to any individual in order to influence behavior that the recipient would otherwise not alter.
    ...
    (3) If found guilty of any other crime listed above, the Judiciary will determine a sentence. The sentence must be proportionate to the offense.

    Now give a warm welcome to the man, the myth, the penguin, Volaworand!

    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    I'm the RMB's most beloved penguin corporate overlord! As an LC candidate I'm not promising the sun and the moon: I'm simply vowing to show good judgement. To me the main role of the LC is to ensure the RMB is safe and fun. I will maintain a calm, clear head when wielding the moderation power. The RMB is like a loud bar where people are coming and going all the time, and I think that as long as people are having a good time then we're doing great as a region. Regional Journalism, Polls, events, integration with forumside, all of these things are to help make and keep the region fun and welcoming, so as a member of our Local Council I will enthusiastically boost and support everything fun.

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    Every day is a new adventure in TSP: I try to simply Embrace the Entropy and see where things go.

    I suppose becoming our regions first nation to endorse 1000 nations in September 2018 would be my proudest moment. I love that our region is getting serious about endorsements and I think that the SWAN program will lay a lot of important groundwork in TSP's role in the wider Nationstates community. Our Southern World Assembly iNitiative can really lay the groundwork for our regions future: we stay safe and secure, grow the influence of our Delegate's vote in the Assembly, support our regions proposal authors, and make our enemies quake with fear at the mere whisper of our name... all these things become possible with a strong SWAN.

    I think winning 2017 Christmas writing competition in the advent calendar that year was an important early milestone for me. I was still a relatively new nation and it was the first time I'd really tried anything like that, and the encouragement from my region-mates was very gratifying. I've recently been playing around with graphics programs, and so when my humble creation won the Holiday flag last December, it gave me another confidence boost. Those moments are very special to me because I was able to learn and try new things.

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    I aim to live life according to the "Absolutely No Regrets" … although when I look back on some of my early dispatches with massive textwalls followed by huge images, I do get embarrassed by how weird or just plain ugly some of those came out.

    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    I miss the TSP SlowNews and would love to help bring that back.

    While it's not really gone, I really want to get some sort of new geopolitical knowhere storyline going again. The "SPIT wars" economic roleplay we did in 2017 (modelled on the 1980's Coke/Pepsi Cola wars) and the months long "Hermit Dominion" roleplay (allowing me to flesh out the rise of Russian-style corruption in my lovely little Westminster parliamentary democracy) that we did in knowhere were so much fun and really lead to huge amount of nation and world building for so many players involved. I'd like to work with the amazing roleplayers in our region and support new folks interested in trying their hand at roleplays that feature collaborative storytelling.

    5. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    When people cross the line from being fun and silly to being mean-spirited it makes my blood boil. While that aspect of human nature never really goes away, I think our region does a good job of shutting down personal attacks, hate speech and just plain mean comments.

    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    No, I certainly couldn't bribe or influence a member of the media. I'm incorruptible!
    And, just so you know, I'm completely unaware of the fact that the Kentucky Fried Penguin Political Action Committee has already paid you a handsome consulting fee. That dark money has absolutely nothing to do with my campaign.

    Up next, you all know them, the the floating sword and tea enthusiast, Hanguk-Nippon!

    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    I’m very much devoted to NS and this is my third time running. Though, I didn’t get on twice. So, I’m really determined this time and I feel more proactive in general. I will take the time that I can to take in suggestions and I will work for TSP’s needs in general to adhere to the largest amount of nations possible.

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    My proudest moment would be getting the 10,000th post. It was really fun and very much an honor to get the first post on that page. There’s nothing much else like it.

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    Probably when I was being harassed by a certain person who I shall not name. But that was a long time ago, and I’ve moved pass that.

    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    It’s not that I want to bring something back, rather try something out that can get everyone involved. I want to create a new non-cannon RP with a new map and everything! I feel that here is a severe lack of opportunity for smaller nations in TSP to get involved within the geopolitical RP due to the massive globe-spanning imperialism that’s present. So, I propose that we create a new RP to get more nations involved.

    5. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    Hmm.... I’ll think about that.

    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    Actually?

    After that we have someone you may not know, but boy have they got heart! It's the newbie with ambition, Islas tualua!

    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    I am newest nation among all

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    I am newest nation among all
    Arrive to TSP

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    None at the moment

    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    However,I dot not know the past of the TSP

    5. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    The same af the 4

    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    Yes

    Rolling right into the next candidate we have a very special guest, The Sakhalinsk Empire, the only one who actually gave me a coffee!

    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    I'm a person who has been deeply ingrained in this community - over a year now with this nation, and maybe more if you count Martigues - and I understand how things have been going on around.

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    That time in another LC election where someone decided to use WA puppets (the thought scares me) to vote for me, and I denounced that guy. Felt really good doing the right thing, even if it meant me losing.

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    I can't really say. I've had some embarrassing moments but I guess it was that one time I asked for commemorative coins on the RMB... 'twas very cringe-worthy.

    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    It's hard to say this as well, as TSP feels the same way it felt all the way in July of 2017 (aside from any government restructuring, which most likely was during my hiatus).

    5. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    Spam. Good meat but bad posts. I'm happy that I haven't seen any in a long time, meaning that the LC is doing their job well - which is another reason I want to contribute.

    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    I wish I could, but I don't wanna be charged with bribery... *slips one in your coat pocket*

    Now put you hands together for the solid cyborg with a heart of stone, Concrete Slab!

    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    I feel I'm willing to follow my beliefs, even if others disagree with them.

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    My proudest moment? Either getting elected to LC the first time or when SC Resolution #271 passed.

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    When I got charged with corruption.

    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    I feel that organized roleplay had disappeared from the region. I just want to bring it back to help the older nations cope and facilitate involvement with new nations.

    5. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    Mudslinging... *cough* Techolandia *cough*

    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    I would buy Zess a coffee even if he wasn't giving me free advertising! :)

    You know her, you fear and/or love her, it's the beautiful, tentacled abomination, Auphelia!

    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    I am a rather, if I dare say so myself, unique individual. I also have more experience than most, and I do think my staunchly pro-RMB stance is a rarity in a day and age where the Forums and Discord rule the higher channels of politics. I have no current aspirations for higher office. This is not a stepping stone for me; it is the highest honour.

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    My interview with Erinor for the regional newspaper was perhaps my proudest moment, next to when I was elected a Local Councillor. I remember nearly choking to death on a sip of water when I read he wanted to interview me (me!), and I still have the link in my bookmarks.

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    Anything before my brief hiatus in the summer/early fall of 2017. I was relatively new to this social aspect of the internet and tried to be the loudest person in the room. It was a challenging time for all. I am actually the reason Knowhere and Psomewhere exist.

    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    I don't think so. Everything evolves, and TSP should be no different. As it changes, we need to be ready to face new challenges, not try to bring back old things that we have moved past.

    5. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    Let's never go back to the days of you-know-what.

    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    Of course not! What do I look like, some sort of billionaire! Begone, beggar!

    Making their way into spot number eight is the serial endorser, Saciu!
    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    I prioritise my positions and what I plan to do to help TSP over the flashy formatting used by many others. I also will also specifically help with WA endorsements - I feel that this is very important.

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    The moment I felt proudest was earlier this month, where I went to the Swan Awards and endorsed everyone there. Helping TSP's WA endorsement count and bringing together the region made me feel like I really had a place here.

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    Honestly, I can't think of anything to put here.

    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    The past is the past. Anything that TSP has left there is there for a reason. I strongly believe that TSP is currently by far stronger than it has ever been. I would bring nothing back.

    5. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    While I stand with my above statement, I don't think we should completely shut the door on any idea. I wouldn't say that there's anything that should never be brought back.

    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    Don't do drugs, kids. Replace coffee with endorsing everyone you can find. Replace cocaine with updating your nation's factbook.

    And last but certainly not least is Tamil cholan, the blank slate waiting to represent you!

    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    Just a little difference, as I don:'t have any initial plan to reform TSP but if I get elected then I get to know about problem and I will tackle it.

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    I can't say as there are a lot, but when I received the telegram from legislator committee that my application has been accepted I felt very proud as I became a legislator in NS 2nd powerful region.

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    Nope

    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    The guide lines provided to newbie of TSP are not proper and RMB should be moderated as offensive words are used in it.

    5. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    Our old region members who had turned as Ex-nation or the departed ones for other regions as they provide us golden ideas and opinion.

    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    Sure why not, not one if I get elected I will buy you 2 coffee

    No. No. I'm not adding RON in. Why? I hate that guy! Wait, how much coffee? Alright, fine. Fine! Ugh...
    I suppose I'll throw them in for good measure, RON, the collection of all that is evil in the world!

    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    I am of the most inconvenience out of all of them.

    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    Causing pain among all associated with the elections.

    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    Not winning the elections.

    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    Not having elections.

    5. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    The absence of me.

    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?
    No. I will buy myself one but not you.

    Dear Good TSPers,

    It is I, Beepee, your newly anointed Minister of Regional Affairs.

    I'm delighted to have been elected to succeed the wonderful Pencil Sharpeners 2 as Minister and applaud PS2 who did an excellent job during his tenure. I hope to be able to continue his excellent work at keeping us entertained and informed.

    I am excited to work with the Ministry and the Cabinet and if you would like to join us, details are below.

    Despite today being my first official day on the job, over the past week, during the transition phase, I and the whole Ministry, have been working to try and set up a number of events and releases for my tenure as MoRA. My hope is to ensure that all areas, RMB, Forums and Discord are able to participate fully.

    I look forward to serving you

    Yours

    Beepee


    For those of you who haven't done so yet, you can go to LinkTSPforums and join to become a legislator in our Coalition.

    We also have our LinkRegional Discord Channel

    From Middle English Germanie, from Old English Germania, from Latin Germānia (“land of the Germans”), from Germānī, a people living around and east of the Rhine first attested in the 1st century BCE works of Julius Caesar and of uncertain etymology. The exonym was said by Strabo to derive from germānus ("close kin; genuine"), making it cognate with "germane" and "german", but this seems unsupported. Attempts to derive it from Germanic or Celtic roots since the 18th century are all problematic, although it is perhaps cognate with the Old Irish gair ("neighbor").

    -1 History

    Islas tualua It was founded in November 2018 and I started in the region of Callerdft (Missing in 2018) being its delegate but this region was small and I decided to look for a large region and I decided on the TSP

    -2 Conflict of interests

    My other nation is Islas aaland is found in Donjia

    -3 Why you should vote for me

    My nation is the newest nation among all candidates (also the least experienced) but this is the reason I want to enter the LC and I was a delegate controlling all the positions of the game and I am ready to improve the region TSP

    -4 Ideas

    1:Improve the region
    2:Improve regional affairs
    3:Guide new nations in the region
    4:Improve WA in the region

    There are more ideas to do the TSP the best region of all

    Auphelia

    Auphelia For TSP City Council





    Hello, Citizens of Pawnee . . . I mean TSP! How are you feeling today? Good? Great!

    My name is Auphelia, and I hereby announce my candidacy for the TSP Local Council! Now, some of you were not around for my first (and only!) term as a Local Councillor of TSP, so let me give you a quick summary of where everyone was at, emotionally, during my tenure!

    T h e C i t i z e n s

    T h e R e s t O f T h e G o v e r n m e n t

    M e

    Are you all caught up? Great! Now, I have some great new ideas for the region (and by region I do mean the RMB and whatnot) that I am sure will delight and amaze, as well as some great reasons to vote for me, which I am so excited for you to hear! Or read. As this is a dispatch.

    Are you ready for my list? Okay then!



    One

    My history in the LC is still spoken of today . . . in positive ways, I am sure. And if not, well . . .

    In my last term as LC, back in the storied time known as Spring of 2018, the RMB was a different place. Erinor was Delegate, lampshades and SPIT were distributed to all new nations, and . . . well it wasn't that different.

    Regardless of any similarities between then and now, I was a champion against the scourge of double posting, was on the front lines of nearly every conflict against spammers when they dared tread within our RMB, helped drive our RMB posts to new heights (good or bad, who's to say?), and managed to scare new nations with my tentacular awesomeness!

    The other candidates, on the other hand . . . weeeelllll . . . it's not that I don't trust the other candidates . . . it's just that I don't have faith in them. Also, I'm beginning to forget who the other candidates are.

    Now, I do know I was accused of such things as overly harsh enforcement and corruption in my last term, but I would like to point out that those charges were dropped and one of my main detractors CTE'd in a very non-suspicious way, so it's all fine. Everything is fine.

    I am usually active or observing the RMB at some point or another, and in the event of a troll raid or a spam session, no one has ever accused me of being a hesitant suppressor, if you know what I mean.

    But don't worry.

    I can be calm.

    Cool.

    Collected.

    So vote for me.

    It's all right.



    Two

    Activity is key to a healthy region, and TSP has plenty of it! In fact, we have so much that encouraging people to join in is like encouraging small children to eat sweets! The LC has no need to encourage people to be more active. Instead, we need to focus and direct existing activity into productive outlets.

    I am really good at making things sound good! You should just go ahead and stop reading now, go vote for me, and call it a day! After all . . .

    Polls, for one, are one of the best ways to get people to talk!

    What option did you pick? Why did you pick it? Well that's interesting, but . . .

    Luckily for all of you, I am the self-described Queen of Polls! In my tenure as LC, there was not a single day that the region went without a poll! I can guarantee that a vote for Auphelia is a vote for more polls! I was an excellent Local Councillor in terms of polling! I was a poll icon!

    I have to admit, though, I don't have many ideas beyond that. I do think games like geography or cinema trivia are fun, and as an LC I would like to run some, but life can be so hectic and player schedules so disparate that I think it would be wrong of me to promise something like that when I don't know I can deliver.

    I can, however, promise to work with the ideas of any citizen or work with a fellow LC member on their ideas into something feasible we can do for the region!

    Some may say that this means I am simply stealing their idea, but I prefer to think of it a different way.



    Three

    I absolutely love the RMB, and there is not much more I can say about that.

    This RMB is like the waffles of TSP, the people are the friends, and the Forums are the work. The RMB or the people are the best, and the Forums are definitely third. I mean, I could definitely do well in the Forums. I could crush the Forums under my heel and become the Diabolical Dictator of TSP.

    After all . . .

    However, in the waffles, friends, work balance of TSP, one thing stands true.

    This section doesn't really have a point, I just wanted to point out that the RMB is the best, and therefore being an LC is the greatest thing that could ever happen to me in NationStates.

    No pressure.

    Lily Pad Nation wrote:When there’s somethin’ strange, in yo neighborhood, who ya gonna call?


    If a nation is behaving strangely in our region I would first seek to open a dialogue with them: a friendly warning ends most misbehaviors. While disturbances can be disruptive in the RMB, our Local Council has suppression powers in order to tamp down harmful rhetoric and keep the peace in the region, which of course I would not be afraid to use if needed, subject to a standard RMB moderation policy jointly be agreed upon by the new local council. I am pleased with current guidelines, but would like to see the moderation of posts occur more often. I think we have a very solid group of folks running and am confident I can work well with any of them.

    Does that accurately cover your question? No.

    Well, in a true paranormal emergency I suppose my calls would be to:

    1. Auphelia;

    This question has dogged humanity for millennia. If elected to the LC I will devote every necessary and available resource to resolve this dilemma once and for all.

Why just file a Conflict of interest Statement when you can have your puppet shout at the election Commissioner "Outta order? I'll show you outta order!

    Volaworand! for Local Council!

    Hello and hugs to you! I'm seeking your support in my first run for The South Pacific Local Council. I've lived in our region since late 2017 and I love and crazy welcoming and murderous Regional Message Board community. While some campaigns will promise you the sun, moon and stars, I have a one main reason you should vote for me:

    I pledge to use my good judgement.


    Good Judgment: What the heck does that mean, you silly penguin? What would you accually do?

    That means exercising fair moderation of the RMB without killing activity. I don't care about double posting, but I would suppress triple posts, hate speech and spam. I would make sure we always have entertaining regional polls, and enthusiastically encourage gameside activity.

    I know our region has been gone through debates over the place of roleplay in the main RMB and feel have a good balance. Our roleplaying sub-regions (Psomewhere and Knowhere) see quite regular activity and the current policy of 7 or 8 posts seems to work fine. Of course, if the new LC jointly wishes to adjust this, I will gently encourage roleplays move to the 'wheres. I love doing nation based roleplay in our knowhere region (and the occasional one-off's here and there) and will continue that regardless of the election outcome. I think if we want people to roleplay in the 'wheres we should give people a reason to use them by regularly starting storylines that draw people in. The 'wheres are not where roleplay is supposed to go to die, but to go to thrive.

    I'm a compulsive dispatch publisher, and am always available to help nations crafting dispatches and factbooks that reflect their vision for their nation. I read (and upvote) every single dispatch published in TSP and highlight the news in my (semi-daily) Volaworand Newswire. I support improving our regional journalism and hope to restart & maintain the TSP Slownews if elected.

    My other TSP passion is our Southern World Assembly iNitiative (SWAN). I strive to endorse everyone in the region and I was the first nation in our region to endorse over 1000 nations in a single month. Since then I consistently maintain endorsements of at least 98-ish percent of the region (while I hunt for the few I've missed). I recently exceeded our endorsement cap, so I left the WA for all of 5 minutes (it was horrible) so I could restart collecting endorsements but maintain the endorsements I've handed out. I think the SWAN initiative is a key part of building a close-knit, integrated and secure community, and a necessary step to help us retain nations who were lucky enough to spawn in our region, and attract new nations.

    While I consider the RMB my home, I'm also a legislator on our offsite forums and participate actively and independently in our region's politics. I think it's important for everyone on the LC to be familiar enough with all aspects of our regional government to be able to connect nations with the resources we have to offer. Also, as a very active poster on our RMB I will promote the current initiatives, votes and events and festivals happening in the other half of our region.

    I've become completely hooked on the Nationstates trading cards and am slowly building my TSP collection. I absolutely love being able to showcase the amazing diversity of our region. If I've gone quiet on the RMB I'm likely lurking while watching an auction closely. Or maybe eating... sometimes I even go to work or sleep, but TSP is always huge part of my day. I'm here for several hours a day, every day.

    I encourage you to explore my campaign dispatches, and telegram or tag me in the RMB if you have any questions. I keep adding new ones, drumming up hype for our campaign and the best online community I've been honoured be a part of. Thanks for your consideration.

    The next round of LC election will start in about an hour. Good luck to all the candidates!

    It's Official! With 50% of the huge turnout, I've secured the first seat of the three on our Local Council.
    A victory dispatch will be posted shortly.
    I'll be voting Concrete Slab in Round 2, and Auphelia in Round 3. I'd be happy to have you (and everyone in TSP) join me in supporting these two fine nations.



    Feb 25, 2019:
    I've managed to garner the support of 47 of the 99 votes so far. I really want to get over 50% on the first round now, so I shall make one last desperate, eleventh hour gesture to woo TSP voters with a heartfelt song.

    With the initial response positive it was time to begin to differentiate my campaign. With a couple of the declared candidates having been dragged before the high court over the past year by another cantidates, corrpution allegations are bound to be touchy issue in this campaign. I should probably work to defuse the potential tension with some humor.

    Idk

    by Alveracia

    The government of Alveracia has released an official statement today stating solely "idk," suggesting that the entire government has no idea what it is doing. Frankly, no one was surprised and economic experts are at least pleased to note that the government is honest (or perhaps they are pretending to be pleased whilst quietly packing their bags).

    *This paper does not condone emigration as it is illegal, like everything else in Alveracia

    Rabbitz

    In the current state of Rabbitz you can vote for whoever you want, vote to make whatever you want, and vote to have anything you want. Politicians must leave office after an allotted time with votes counting directly towards who gets into office to replace. The right to protest is held sacrosanct with people constantly protesting about trivial things such as which movie is the greatest, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Rabbitz pop. This follows a little more important matters such as what's the mass of the Higgs Boson, and how can you divide by zero. Let's backtrack to the beginning, shall we? The government in Rabbitz was flourishing with people constantly enjoying the freedom to push voting machine buttons, and having their opinion asked. Then, on December 30th, 24 days after Rabbitz was founded, the government turned into a socialist society. The people could no longer vote for the things they desired and protesters were detained and forced to work for no money. Politicians were corrupt and never left offfice, and nobody could say their opinion about governmental decisions and policies. Then, on Jan 9th, the people's protests and prayers were heard. The government lifted the socialistic policies and replaced them with the people friendly ones. All was good for a great long time. The people could push voting machine buttons and be happy with their right to have their opinion heard. Then, on March 20th, the autocracy kicked in. The military forced people to vote for a candidate and shot anyone who opposed. Protesters were shot on the spot. The people lived in fear of their lives. All candidates that were not apart of the party were shot, or threatened to be shot if they did not switch or give up their office. The fun seeped out of the people once again. Then, on March 29th, the barbaric autocratic policies were lifted, and the people could once again be heard. From that moment forward, the Rabbitzian can be reassured that no acts of communism or autocracy would ever be implaced again. The people are now once heard and will be forevermore.

    With apologies to Charlie Chaplin

    Charlie Chaplin's first talkie, The Great Dictator (1940), is loved and loathed in equal measures, but is an outstanding film in many respects. Although some would say Chaplin, after staying silent for so long, now talked too much, you can't argue that he used sound to great effect and made the transition rather better than many of his contempories.

    The film includes many classic scenes of comedy - especially the interplay between Hynkel and Napaloni - but it also has serious undertones. You must remember that this film was made when Adolf Hitler was in power and World War II raged across Europe. It was a brave film to make at the time, though upon learning later of the horror of the concentration camps, Chaplin confessed that he wouldn't have made the film with this knowledge (the same thing Hergé said about his Quick and Flupke/Hitler cartoons).

    The speech that ends the film is quite famous and even controversial - for some it is overly sentimental, for others it is a real message of peace from a man that the whole world would listen to. Chaplin was asked to repeat the speech on national radio. It may seem a bit dated now in it's style, but it's still sadly apt for the world today.

    The plot before hand concerns an innocent Jewish barber (Chaplin) who ends up being mistaken for the Ptomanian dictator Adenoid Hynkel (also Chaplin). He soon finds himself dressed in the fuhrer's outfit, on a platform facing 'his' army, and expected to make a rousing speech to spur on the evil genocide and invasions.


    "I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible - Caketalists, Pieletariat - new nations - ancient nations.

    We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness - not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this region there's room for everyone and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone.

    The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned nation's souls - has barricaded the world with hate - has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

    The RMB and the offsite forums have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in man - cries for universal brotherhood - for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world - millions of despairing men, women, and little children - victims of a system that makes nations torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say: 'Do not despair.' The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of nations who fear the way of human progress. The hate of nations will pass, and dictators CTE, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as nations CTE, liberty will never perish.

    TSP! Don't give yourselves to brutes - those who despise you and enslave you - who regiment your lives - tell you what to do - what to think and what to feel! Who drill you - diet you - treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural nations - machine nations with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are nations! You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate, only the unloved hate - the unloved and the unnatural!

    TSP! Don't fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of St Luke, it is written the kingdom of God is within man not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people, have the power - the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful - to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy - let us use that power - let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world - a decent world that will give our region a chance to work - that will give youth a future and old age a security.

    By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world - to do away with unnatural barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason - a world where science and progress will lead to all nation's happiness. TSP, in the name of democracy, let us all unite!

    United Europe-Eurasia East Sakhlin South Caleblan The Sakhalinsk Empire

    The Kingdom of United Europe-Eurasia (UEE)

    Message Directed to East Sakhlin, South Caleblan, and The Sakhalinsk Empire

    King Morris has officially spoken on the South Caleblan-East Sakhalin Phillippines Separation.

    As we are going into the next quarter of politics and are witnessing several changes around the world, The UEE has noticed a Double Claim of The Philippines that could cause several issues over sovereignty, everyone has their own views amongst these new changes but The UEE is here to make these changes as stable as possible.

    The Philippines is planned to be split into half, with a shared Administration located in Manilla after the collapse of Independent Philippines back in January, East Sakhalin gained full sovereignty over The Philippines in January as their Population Issue has begun to cause overpopulation on The Sakhalinsk Island.

    The UEE thinks in a whole that a shared administration would be best if the two governments ceded their sovereignty to become a Bicameral Legislation and form a larger government. This could decrease Land Disputes and help for less foreign confusion in the long run.

    The UEE is willing to sign an agreement with East Sakhalin and South Caleblan to form two separate regions, such as a IRL situation like The United Kingdom, South Caleblan and East Sakhalin are still their own countries but are a united kingdom with there sovereignty merged.

    United Europe-Eurasia is very aware that this change may cause confusion, but it could also weaken the chance of a hard border, while also decreasing the chance of strained relations between the two nations.

    A large agreement may be necessary, and a capital change for both nations to be combined in one may be necessary as well, but The UEE believes that this could be the best for both nations.

    The Bicameral Legislation could be named as The House of Sakhalinsk and The House of Caleblan, but changes may be fitting for both nations to agree.

    To finalize this Official Document, we would like to let The International Community know that this is our sole opinion on the current Philippines situation at its earliest stages.

    We ask The Sakhalinsk Empire to calm its standards on its core treaty with East Sakhalin until this merge or separation is solved.

    We wish all Eurasians the best and The Eurasian Government wishes the best for you and your family, best wishes!

    King of United Europe-Eurasia (UEE)

What kind of a show are you guys puttin' on here today. I mean, the only class in this act is sittin' next to me. And I'm here to tell ya this boy's soul is intact. It's non-negotiable. You know how I know? Someone here -- and I'm not gonna say who -- offered to buy it. Only Volaworand here wasn't sellin'.

I'd show you but I'm too old; I'm too tired; I'm too floofin' blind. If I were the man I was five years ago I'd take a FLAME-THROWER to this place! Outta order. Who the hell you think you're talkin' to? I've been around, you know? There was a time I could see. And I have seen boys like these, younger than these, their arms torn out, their legs ripped off. But there isn't nothin' like the sight of an amputated spirit; there is no prosthetic for that. You think you're merely sendin' this splendid foot-soldier back home to Antarctica with his tail between his legs, but I say you are executin' his SOUL!! And why?! Because he's not a TSP man! TSP men, ya hurt this boy, you're going to be TSP Bums, the lot of ya. And Kerlodia, New Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Tamil cholan, wherever you are out there, FLOOF YOU, too!

    Le Front de Liberation du Midand wrote: I'm not finished! As I came in here, I heard those words, "cradle of leadership." Well, when the bough breaks, the cradle will fall. And it has fallen here; it has fallen. Makers of men; creators of leaders; be careful what kind of leaders you're producin' here. I don't know if Volaworand's silence here today is right or wrong.

    I'm not a judge or jury. But I can tell you this: he won't sell anybody out to buy his future!! And that, my friends, is called integrity! That's called courage! Now that's the stuff leaders should be made of. Now I have come to the crossroads in my life. I always knew what the right path was. Without exception, I knew. But I never took it. You know why? It was too damn hard. Now here's Volaworand. He's come to the crossroads. He has chosen a path. It's the right path. It's a path made of principle -- that leads to character. Let him continue on his journey.

    You hold this boy's future in your hands, committee. It's a valuable future. Believe me. Don't destroy it! Protect it. Embrace it. It's gonna make ya proud one day -- I promise you.

    Hanguk-Nippon

    Hello! It's me, Hanguk-Nippon or HN for short, your ghost-yōkai Katana. I've decided that I better give it another shot when running for LC and I cannot give up! Last time, I was very much entangled with real life problems. However I'm prepared to get back into the action and serve TSP as a new member on the Local Council! I realized that hard work is all it takes to score that position on the Local Council, and I shall do my best to serve, engage myself, and act in a fair and healthy manner now and if I become an Local Councilor. I will make sure that every perspective is heard and that I shall take into account all opinions on a matter, whether that be toxicity on the RMB, harassment, RMB RPing, or getting new countries involved in TSP.

    There are many wonderful and exciting candidates for the Local Council, however, here are some reasons for why you should vote for me, HN!

    1) I'm an energetic NSer who loves the RMB, the culture, and most of all... TEA-S-P! Get it? ... *Shrugs*

    2) I'm open to new ideas and I'm especially fond of compromise between old and new. I say we mix the roster up a little, yes?

    3) I plan to create my own TSP newspaper, filled with the latest RMB topics, debate, and World Assembly news. The whole package!

    4) I wish to make TSP's RPing community more of an open platform for all nations. I propose that we create an entirely new Geo-Political RP, separate from the old one with countries starting out small and growing progressively larger as time passes by. This RP shall have no connections to the first RP and shall be free to join with the regular announcement in Knowhere.

    5) I'm an active and quick-to-endorse endotarter. I'm also an active participant in the WA and I'm absolutely Pro-SWAN!

    6) I'm very understanding of others' viewpoints and I hope that we can all respect each others' as well. I will be open to all constructive criticism and suggestions!

    Questions & Answers



    New creth wrote:What will you do if you are elected?

    My first course of action is making my own little LC Newspaper, like Midand’s retired one. But not. I’ll be open to name suggestions.



    From Zess: Hullo, HN. In regards to the upcoming local council elections I was wondering if you could take a bit of your time to answer a couple of questions. These will be shown on a dispatch along with the responses of all other LC candidates who respond. If you would like to opt out just tell me. You have 24 hours from the time of writing this to respond. Thanks!
    1. What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    2. What is your proudest moment on NS?
    3. What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    4. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    5. Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like to never be brought back? If so, why?
    6. Will you buy Zess a coffee for providing you with free advertisement?

    Response: 1. I’m very much devoted to NS and this is my third time running. Though, I didn’t get on twice. So, I’m really determined this time and I feel more proactive in general. I will take the time that I can to take in suggestions and I will work for TSP’s needs in general to adhere to the largest amount of nations possible.
    2. My proudest moment would be getting the 10,000th post. It was really fun and very much an honor to get the first post on that page. There’s nothing much else like it.
    3. Probably when I was being harassed by a certain person who I shall not name. But that was a long time ago, and I’ve moved pass that.
    4. It’s not that I want to bring something back, rather try something out that can get everyone involved. I want to create a new non-cannon RP with a new map and everything! I feel that here is a severe lack of opportunity for smaller nations in TSP to get involved within the geopolitical RP due to the massive globe-spanning imperialism that’s present. So, I propose that we create a new RP to get more nations involved.
    5. Hmm.... I’ll think about that.
    6. Actually?

    I will make sure that it doesn’t reach the levels of spam, but the current levels appear to be under control. I may ask several others to factor in opinion for a more comprehensive approach, for a better resolution. But I’m open to these sort of things, and I’ll regularly keep tabs on these things for future notice.

    East Lodge

    After successfully upgrading the machine, to where it can suck out a soul and put it back in record time, we tested a panda. We took its soul, and put it back; the panda lived. We tried this also on a random sample of other animals and humans, and they lived.

    We then decided to try a new test: removing a soul, then making the subject a cyborg. The scientists who ran the tests found all 20 subjects, with their souls removed and with the robotic parts put in, lived. But some didn't, and that was because there were occasional bug;, but that happens all the time.

    We will now focus on this aspect on why does this work.

    Introduction

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    East Lodge needs a good government to take care of its lovely people. It also needs amazing civil rights and political rights. A week ago a poll stated East Lodgeans wanted to become a Liberal Socialist Democratic Socialist; as always, for the people and their happiness.

    This will be a bumpy ride and transition to a new life. It will be complicated and emotional for all East Lodgeans. But your queen wishes only the best for her AI nation. Many votes and meetings have planned, in detail, how to do this.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Decree

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will as a nation...

    Work our way back to an Unoffensive Centrist State, to get in the middle.

    The next thing we will do, my faithful pretties, is go left instead of right: we will become a New York Democracy State.

    The next movement will be further to the left to the Liberal Democratic Socialist.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Policies

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Policies will change, but we came prepared. The ideal policies for East Lodge

    We will officially become a Monarchy.
    We will disband all punishments involving death.
    We will disband all bans on automobiles.
    We will bring back the judical system.
    And we wil conform to leftist beliefs.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Morality

    We will change things around here, as well.

    We will make the life span of an average citizen rise to as high as we will allow it to grow.

    We will abolish disappearance and suicide while in police custody

    We will *try our best to* abolish murder.

    We will try our best to smuther down heart disease as much as possible. Our people's lives matter most.

    We will put our people's health and well being before all else. Economy, unbelievably, will come second.

    Sleazy politicals won't make it here. Only just ones will rise to the surface of corruptions.(just according to the belief that civil rights are vital for any nation.)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Expendure
    We will control our funding to support the following:
    * Education
    * Healthcare
    * Administration
    * Enviroment
    * Law and Order

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Government
    We, as a nation will:

    * build up the government to the point that state owned industry and the closely standing black market currently rests: ~86.3%

    * have ~23.7% worth of private owned industry

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Trends
    We will:
    * focus Economy to ~90%
    * focus Political Rights to ~80%
    * focus Civil Rights to ~60%

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    East Lodge

    East Lodgean scientists have found that souls are essentially the givers of life unto humans and animals, however they do not control the living psyche. The body has its functions and uses, and they dictate everything the person will do. This research does prove, however, that souls are a key component to life.

    We tested consented humans and animals (the animals got consent from people), and we put them in a machine that by supernatural magic, absorbed the soul out of the specimens. The lack of souls made the specimens immedietely die. Even after inserting the soul once again, the specimens did not wake up.

    To conclude, the soul must be a key component to living beings; one's soul is like a lung, a heart, or a brain. Without it, the person will have a time frame to be helped, but you can put it back in time, and hopefully save someone.

    Unfortunately our machines were too slow to revivve the test subjects. We will not forget the deceased subjects, as we will strive to build a faster and safer machine.

    Volaworand New Haudenosaunee Confederacy Auphelia Concrete Slab Kerlodia Aidenfieeld


    CRS wiretap transcript (probably faked) of a secret meeting of Volaworand's LC exploratory committee Raw feed here: Linkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B34sntIgI4g

    New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wrote: I believe in The South Pacific. TSP has made my fortune. And I raised my daughter in TSP fashion. I gave her freedom, but I taught her never to dishonor her family. She found a goddess, Auphelia, not an Italian. She went to the movies. She stayed out late. I didn't protest. Two months ago she took her for a drive, with another friend, Concrete Slab. They made her drink whiskey and then they tried to take advantage of her. She resisted. She kept her honor. So they suppressed her posts. Like an animal. When I went to the hospital her nose was broken. Her jaw was shattered, held together by wire. She couldn't even weep because of the pain. But I wept. Why did I weep? She was the light of my life. A beautiful girl. Now she will never be beautiful again. [He breaks down at this point, and the Don gestures to Kerlodia to get him a drink.] Sorry... [He regains his composure and carries on.] I went to the High Court, like a good TSPer. These two were brought to trial. The judge sentenced them to three years in prison, and suspended the sentence. Suspended sentence! They went free that very day! I stood in the courtroom like a fool, and those two bastards, they smiled at me. Then I said to my wife, "For justice, we must go to Don Volaworandleone."

    Don Volaworandleone: Why did you go to the off-site forum's High Court? Why didn't you come to me first?

    New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wrote: What do you want of me? Tell me anything, but do what I beg you to do.

    Don Volaworandleone: What is that?

    New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wrote: [whispers his request in the Don's ear] I want them dead.

    Don Volaworandleone: That I cannot do.

    New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wrote: I will give you anything you ask.

    Don Volaworandleone: We've known each other many years, but this is the first time you ever came to me for counsel or for help. I can't remember the last time that you invited me to your house for a cup of SPIT, even though my spouse is godparent to your only child. But let's be frank here. You never wanted my friendship. And, uh, you were afraid to be in my debt.

    New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wrote: I didn't want to get into trouble.

    Don Volaworandleone: I understand. You found paradise in TSP, you had a good trade, you made a good living. The police protected you and there were courts of law. You didn't need a friend like me. But, now you come to me, and you say: "Don Volaworandleone, give me justice." But you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call me Godfather. Instead, you come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married, and you ask me to do murder for money.

    New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wrote: I ask for justice.

    Don Volaworandleone: That is not justice. Your daughter is still alive.

    New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wrote: Let them suffer then, as she suffers. How much shall I pay you?

    Don Volaworandleone: [shakes his head ruefully] NHC, NHC. What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you'd come to me in friendship, then that scum that ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by chance an honest man like yourself should make enemies, then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you.

    New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wrote: Be my friend... Godfather.
    [The Don shrugs, New Haudenosaunee Confederacy bows toward the Don and kisses the Don's hand.]

    Don Volaworandleone: Good. Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me. But until that day, accept this justice as a gift on my daughter's wedding day.

    New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wrote: Grazie, Godfather.

    Don Volaworandleone: Prego. [New Haudenosaunee Confederacy leaves, and Don Volaworandleone turns to Kerlodia] Give this to, uh, Aidenfieeld. I want reliable people, people who aren't going to be carried away. After all, we're not murderers, in spite of what this undertaker thinks.

    Kundinnic was founded when 2018 was coming to its inglorious end; a symbol of hope, the state has risen in the South Pacific region. Shortly afterwards it gained a reputation of a humanistic (not to say socialistic) state, where human rights have to be respected no matter what. As idealistic as it sounds, Kundinnic keeps growing and blossoming.

    Happy Valentines to any of you looking at this,

    Now back to the NPO,
    Apparently again someone has been banned for yeeting.
    Jar yeetin has been banned for saying "are yeets legal" and got his post suppressed and himself banned.
    Jar Wattinree probably got triggered while doing this.

    So apparently now in the Pacific, you could be banned for yeeting.

    Now for the exciting dark secrets of the forums, hidden from normal viewers.

    About the forums they have no privacy in there. All your activity is tracked. From what you're viewing, to the list of usernames that are online. It's easy to be followed.

    The profile shows everything about you. From what you're viewing to you're "reputation" it shows the suspicion and its will to go to drastic measures to keep its power and to remove dissent.

    There was even a comment I found on a forum topic reply of citizen application that proves the point while I was browsing.

    Then I found another where a guy gave these questions in a npo citizenship application

    Now back to NS, the chess tournament is going and it's going fierce in the Pacific.
    Airengrad beated Glelian 1-0 and since Glelian didn't want another game Airengrad will be put into the semifinals.

    East Lodge


    After immense study and research, top scientists have found that souls, a matter of fact, do exist.

    We found a soul of an archdemon and the soul of a fox; the fox soul was spliced in halg due to the fact the fox needed its soul.

    What is interesting is the fox appeared to die after losing its soul, but then got back up when its half of its soul was put back.

    This begs the question "why?" Our scientists are now on the case...

    East Lodge has got its hands on a soul. Since the beginning of all life we have pondered if souls exist, and why.

    Inside the NPO 2/13/2019

    by Anti francoism

    Hello People from South Pacific, or North Pacific or wherever you are maybe the Pacific,

    We start off with the weirdest banjection of the NPO.
    Pls dont yeet me xor has been banned for according to Xoriet, for yeeting. This is probably one of the weirdest and most random banjection ever seen on the NPO

    He was warned elsewhere not to yeet on my RMB. <_<
    I don't even know what this is by now. Banned for yeeting?

    OK Next thing, we're taking you into the dark secrets of the npo website. They have the own website known as the Link NPO Forums . If you click the link you'll go to the npo website see nothing, that's because you must sign in or register to see anything in the forums. So you end up having to register an account. Once you made an account, the forums will be totally visible for you. Here's a snapshot of the fourms.
    . The forums seem to report everything that's going on, from newest member to what the person's viewing. And obviously it's better not to go into the forums as the Pacific is very untrustworthy.
    Now the forums contain roleplay, general discussion, and many other more stuff.

    We went to the Flag booth of the forums and what we found was shocking. There were dozens of pictures showing real people holding up flags of the NPO in real life

    Here's a flag on the wall

    And even a family in the NPO which's just getting sick.

    Now another thing, the NPO is also unable to confront their condemnation even after one of the NPO Officers said they were authoritarian. This was brought up by Demosses

    Security Council Resolution # 268

    Condemn The Pacific

    A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region.

    Category: Condemnation
    Nominee: the Pacific
    Proposed by: Topid
    The World Assembly,

    Recalls the history of the prior "Condemn The Pacific" resolution, which was repealed based in large part on The Pacific's apologies for the conduct of its government, the New Pacific Order (NPO), during the New Lazarus Order (NLO) coup of 2015,

    Notes recent evidence such apologies were hollow, due to the continued infiltration of the sinker regions Osiris and Lazarus by notable members of the New Pacific Order (Feux through its puppet Adytus, and A mean old man through its puppet Wrektopia),

    Recognizes this body's long history of using condemnations and liberations to combat philosophies and movements featuring dictatorial leadership, authoritarianism, aggressive foreign policies, deceitful propaganda, controversial intelligence operations, and valuing individuals based on national or regional origin instead of on their own merits,

    Asserts the history of the New Pacific Order of The Pacific is one of aggression, with powerful members linked to coups in The North Pacific, The South Pacific, and Lazarus, and the ongoing forced exile of Topid from St Abbaddon,

    Observes the government of The Pacific relies on the heavy hand of authoritarianism to strangle opposition and unacceptable speech within the region, and uses ejections to disenfranchise World Assembly Member Nations concerned with the region's policies and track record,

    Aware the NPO has frequently engaged in highly controversial intelligence operations, including the aforementioned infiltration of Osiris and Lazarus,

    Appalled by the narrative advanced by the NPO's ideology, "Francoism," which preaches distrusting certain individuals based on their origins and homes, rising far beyond reasonable security and to a level of unacceptable fear mongering used to justify the horrible conduct of the institutions of The Pacific,

    Remembers this body has condemned regions for their aiding and harboring of nations associated with or guilty of the destruction of regional forums,

    Outraged that Pergamon and Feux were made aware King Bradley was responsible for the destruction of regional forums and aided King Bradley by keeping this a secret, allowing King Bradley to continue to secretly reestablish connections with the NationStates world,

    Concludes that contrary to past false apologies and propaganda, The Pacific is a region that is aggressive, authoritarian, deceitful, and advances dangerous ideologies that seek to divide NationStates and instill fear in all,

    Hopes for the destruction of the New Pacific Order, and its replacement by a government that ceases terrorizing its own members, and various targeted groups across NationStates,

    Hereby Condemns The Pacific.

    Passed:

    Tue Dec 4 2018

    For:

    14,008

    88.2%

    Against:

    1,866

    11.8%

    That nation was successfully able to escape without being banned. However the posts were suppressed.

    And now for the Pacific Chess Tourny that's going on right now
    The Nox Empire has beated Shnaliland 2-0, the empire will be moving on to the semifinals.
    Catholic Communist Jerusalem has beated Foxotania once in the chess tourny and is awaiting for a second round. The rest have not done much

    Kandorith

    大香余李帝国


    Official Address To The Nation, Ministry of Imperial Affairs

    Kaito Era


    Transcription of the address to the nation


    Countrymen, today marks maybe the most important date in our recent history.
    At around 03:00 hours this morning the Imperial Mandate has reached an agreement on a series of news laws, effectively on direct order, marking a new era for Kandorith and a new era for our calendar.
    Prime Minister Tou Shunjian has handed in the new laws to the Imperial Administration and they were ratified immediately by the transitional regency.

    The law allows the former members of the Imperial family to ascend the throne successfully and gain the title of Emperor of Kandorith, as it was for over thousand years until the abrupt and painful ending to the Akiharu era.
    Futhermore Prime Minister Tou Shunjian has also ratified laws, allowing female members of the Imperial family to ascend to the throne if they are either the only successor or the most suitable successor of the current Emperor.

    The debate over the succession of the throne and ending the transitional period from the old unlawful federation to our own full democracy and constitution lasted for three days and twenty six hours, making it the longest deadlock in recent history of Kandorith.
    Tou Shunjian has apologized over his failure to reach an agreement within two days as he promised and has handed in his resignation to parliament and the Imperial Administration.
    Making way for a suitable successor of the Liberal Democratic Party. If indeed the Prime Minister was at fault for elongating the talks and discussions regarding the multiple issues.

    Per decree of the ministries and the high priests of Imakazawa and Ginza there will be a 10 day holiday period staring 10 March, the date of the coronation of the new monarch.
    This date will also become the new state holiday in honour of the reinstatement of the official Imperial House of the Kandorese nation.

    After 54 years and 278 days, the transitional period has finally ended. From this day onward the nation of Kandorith can call itself the Great Empire of Kandorith again as full constitutional power will be reinstated to the Imperial House as of today.
    Which means today marks year one of the Kaito Era under Her Imperial Majesty, The Empress, Masumi.

    Tenkyo: Officially Tenkyo Metropolis (天京都) one of the 33 prefectures of Kandorith, has served as the Kandorese capital since 1840. The urban area houses the Imperial Palace, the seat of the Imperial Family of Kandorith, the Kandorese government and the Imperial Mandate. Tenkyo is a part of the Kitano region on the northwestern part of the Kandorese mainland, which includes Kinsei island. Tenkyo was formally named Tenno when Tenmei Kitano Marushige made the city his headquarters in 1533. It became the capital after Emperor Yamagata moved his seat to the city from Ginza in 1840; at that time Tenno was renamed to Tenkyo. Tenkyo Metropolis formed in 1940 from the mergfer of the former Tenkyo prefecture and the city of Tenkyo. Often is the capital refered to as city, but it is officially known and governed as a metropolitan prefecture, which differs from and combines elements of both city and prefecture, a trait uniquely reserved for Tenkyo.

    Imakazawa: Imakazawa is the largest city in Kandorith by population, and the most populous municipality in all of the country. It is the capital city of the Hideozawa Prefecture.

    Imakazawa's population of 69,6 million makes it Kandorith's largest city. Imakazawa developed rapidly as the most prominent port city within the country following the end of the isolationist politics in the mid-19th century. Even today the city remains one of the major ports in the country along with Higaku, Tenkyo and Higashu.

    Higaku: The City of Higaku is a designated city in the Saitei region of Kandorith. It is the capital of the Shoga Prefecture and the largest component of the Saitei Metropolitan Area. The second largest metropolitan area in Kandorith. The city is known for it's iconic port structures, like the Shikashi Port Tower, and the notorious shopping and nightlife. Higaku is also one of the major tourist destinations within the country, most notable for it's many well preserved castles dating all the way back to the early 1300's.

    Higashu: Higashu is the largest city in the Kubo region of Kandorith. It is the nation's fourth-largest designated city and the third-most-populous urban area. It is located on Yori Island in the most northeastern reaches of the nation. After Tenkyo, Makazawa and Higaku, Higashu is the major port of Kandorith. It is also the center of the country's third-largest metropolitan region, known as the Kubo metropolitan area. As of 2016, 43200000 million people lived in the city, part of the Kubo metropolitan area's 189,6 million people.

    Hayazawa: is the fifth largest city of Kandorith by population, and the largest city in the western reaches of the country. It is the capital of the Kamigawa Prefecture and the Santori Subprefecture. It is an ordinance-designed-city. The city is most widely known for it's beautiful parks, theme parks and the annual Hayazawa snow festival.

    "My battery is low and it is getting dark"

    This is the thread with the background information, and you can also join in on the respects.

    viewtopic.php?f=20&t=459717&p=35314269#p35314269

    Oppy did good, it really did. It had a month's worth mission, and it kept going for 15 years.

    Unfortunately a dust storm came... and it sent the message: "My battery is getting low, and it is getting dark." It could feel its lights dim as its 15 year old journey came to an end; it's really something that it could recognize its life was over.

    Looking at my nation, you would see it would only right to say something about this.

    Opportunity did good- no- great. Oppy did great out there.

    And with this, we close the curtains and we figure out what to do next.

    Goodbye.

    Volaworand

    Volaworand announced on Wednesday that he is forming an exploratory committee to consider a Local Council bid.

    "I'm going to run for Local Council of The South Pacific," the Canadian Penguin, 44, said on VBC's "TSSS Fox and Friends."

    In a clip of his taped interview released online ahead of the show's broadcast Wednesday evening, Volaworand said he is forming a exploratory committee "tonight," garnering big cheers from the audience.

    "As a your LC penguin, I’m going to fight for other people’s kids as hard as I’m going to fight for my own, which is why I believe that meaningful work should be a right and not a privilege. It's why I believe we should have better working conditions for all our kids, because it shouldn’t matter what feeder block you grow up on," she said. Supporters waved pro-child labour placards reading "Real work. Real wages."

    Volaworand, a longtime target of women who has been vocal in the #MeToo movement, also vowed to take on "institutionalized patriarchy," "corruption and greed in TSP," and the "special interests that write legislation in the dead of the offsite forums."

    "I know I have the compassion, the courage, the blinding rage and the autocratic determination to get the job done," he said, "Anyone who stands against me will sleep with the fishes."

    Filing paperwork with the Election Commission for an exploratory committee will allow the penguin to raise and spend money like a LC candidate, before officially entering the race. Candidates are supposed to take this step within 15 days of raising or spending more than $5,000 on a potential bid. Volaworand has been hiring campaign staffers, renting out a campaign headquarters, collecting dirt on opponents and is planning a trip to Knowhere this weekend.

    He promptly tweeted out a new campaign website, which solicits email addresses, bribes, donations and resumes for potential staffers.

    Volaworand's campaign will focus on him as an advocate for the disadvantaged and downtrodden, a leader on death hugs in debates, and a fierce opponent of the lower case t rebels, a campaign official told VBC News on Tuesday. In particular, voters can expect to hear about the penguin's efforts to reform and expand the handling of suppression in the RMB, a proposal to protect endangered drama llama's, and his efforts to encourage silliness and pointless drama in TSP politics.

    A Declaration of Autonomy

    by Norfolk-sutton

    In full confidence that those gathered in Conference this day have been democratically appointed by their communities to act as delegates, we affirm the following:

    • That our communities have, with legal sanction granted through insincere representation, been plundered and exploited throughout history for our labor and resources, resulting in the degradation of our communities, culture, and environment.

    • That repeated attempts to remedy these crimes and receive justice through legal channels have been met with degradation, violence, oppression, and further injustice against us.

    • That our communities cannot be expected to suffer further obvious injustice at the hands of a militarized alliance between Industry and State.

    • That a just and peaceful outcome can only be realized if a complete and irreparable break be made between local institutions of democracy and hostile, outside powers which have consistently violated those institutions.

    • That to achieve this end, the communities of Norfolk and Sutton, and surrounding communities who choose to do so in the exercise of their democracies, shall henceforth become independent republics, free from the jurisdiction of larger federal states, and absolved of all oaths to said former states.

    • That these communities shall make good faith efforts in further Conference to form a more permanent Constitution.

    • That in the infancy of autonomy, these communities shall respect human rights set forth by the World Assembly until a more permanent Constitution is democratically ratified.

    The Undersigned representing residents of Norfolk, Sutton, and the Surrounding Autonomous Communities

    - I am a leading member in the World Assembly in TSP, usually in the top ten for endorsement count and endotarting performance. I even wrote Security Council Resolution #271, showing I have experience in the WA! (Don't know why that matters... lol)
    - I have served as a legislator in the TSP forums for four months and have voted on many crucial pieces of legislation.
    - I am an active member on the TSP discord.
    - I am the TSP ambassador to the LCRUA!
    - I have sent many regional telegrams promoting the forums and telling the populace of important announcements.
    - Made some SUPER fun polls
    - I've served on the Local Council! (Of course) XD

    What You Gonna Do?

    My term has been... quite interesting. Anyway, here's what I want to do next term!
    - Continue welcoming new nations to the TSP!
    - (This may not go over well but...) Try and transfer roleplay to their designated regions more often!
    - Continue my STELLAR rmb moderation! (:/)
    - Make some more most excellent polls!
    - Play lots of rmb games!
    - Make sure that TSP is a welcoming place for new nations!

    The I.R.C.P.I made up of Barrakkeett, Maxtopia, Brancaland, Amouria, and Hawaii. Have been having some political problems with their neighbouring island countries in The South Pacific, (Bigtopia, Urolia) these problems started very dull and ineffective to the I.R.C.P.I, but have now become a major threat. The Primininster of Barrakkeett has just flown to the capital city of Maxtopia (Defryn) to have a meeting with all of the I.R.C.P.I as I write this. If things get into major hazards on the Islander peninsula. It is possible that Amouria, and the 5M people living there, will be overthrown by the Urolian and Bigtopian armies. The I.R.C.P.I has very strong relationships with Canada, Japan, Lebanon and the U.K, so it is possible that they will help end this nuisance.

    Inside the NPO 2/12/2019

    by Anti francoism

    Hello Fellow Nations,

    We start off with this breaking statement from one of the NPO Officers,
    Jar Wattinree actually claims that the NPO is authoritarian on an RMB Post.
    Although saying it's not fascist, this just confirms much of the opposition force of the NPO.
    As many claim of the NPO regime as a very tyrannical and unreasonable.

    Furthermore the Jar Wattinree has banjected a nation known as Nenelia for "supposedly recruiting" but more for dissent as the nation wasn't really recruiting and just urging people to get out of the Pacific.

    Here's the full message:
    Greetings members of the Pacific, I am here with a message for all of you. As you may or may not have known, the regime currently controlling your region has recently suffered declarations of war from some of the most prominent regions and alliances in the game, including but not limited to, The Black Hawks (a prominent raiding organization), the Augustin Alliance (a group of regions banded together for social interaction as well as defence), Osiris (a game created region where nations which cease to exist due to inactivity are reborn when the player becomes active again), Balder (same thing as Osiris), and many other regions, some small, some large. Why is this, you may ask? Well, this is due to the disgusting ideology the regime controlling your region has. This ideology, called Francoism, believes that regions created by you, the players, are inherently worse than game created regions such as the one you are in right now, and seek to stamp them out. What’s more is that they have already invaded and subjugated numerous regions created by players. In the name of decency, I urge you to either leave the Pacific immediately or attempt to oust the current regime from power. If you end up leaving or getting kicked, I would recommend you come to Anteria. We are a casual, laid-back, fun roleplay region where people can hang out, talk on our discord, and have a genuinely fun time. I for one have had a wonderful time since I joined (insert your region) on May 7th, 2017. We hope to see you join our region in order to weaken the Pacific’s regime and bring about the downfall of a disgusting fascist ideology which has rooted itself inside NationStates.

    And finally there's a chess tournament going on in the Pacific
    The chess tournament has 11 nations participating.
    Here's the list the link to the tournament is Linkhere:
    Glealian
    Airengard
    Zoudha Dar
    The Planet Rann
    Mayo and the other condiments
    Foxotania
    Catholic Communist Jerusalem
    Ferret lands
    Norwany
    Shnaliland
    The Nox Empire

    So far Airengard, Catholic Communist Jerusalem, and The Nox Empire have moved to the second round

    Now here are the nations that have been ejected and banned from the NPO today:
    Ortisian vessel 25
    Nenelia

    There's also another one but that nation has been deleted by the moderators.

    13 February, Kaito 1 | Tenkyo


    Countrymen, today marks maybe the most important date in our recent history.
    At around 03:00 hours this morning the Imperial Mandate has reached an agreement on a series of news laws, effectively on direct order, marking a new era for Kandorith and a new era for our calendar.
    Prime Minister Tou Shunjian has handed in the new laws to the Imperial Administration and they were ratified immediately by the transitional regency.

    The law allows the former members of the Imperial family to ascend the throne successfully and gain the title of Emperor of Kandorith, as it was for over thousand years until the abrupt and painful ending to the Akiharu era.
    Futhermore Prime Minister Tou Shunjian has also ratified laws, allowing female members of the Imperial family to ascend to the throne if they are either the only successor or the most suitable successor of the current Emperor.

    The debate over the succession of the throne and ending the transitional period from the old unlawful federation to our own full democracy and constitution lasted for three days and twenty six hours, making it the longest deadlock in recent history of Kandorith.
    Tou Shunjian has apologized over his failure to reach an agreement within two days as he promised and has handed in his resignation to parliament and the Imperial Administration.
    Making way for a suitable successor of the Liberal Democratic Party. If indeed the Prime Minister was at fault for elongating the talks and discussions regarding the multiple issues.

    Per decree of the ministries and the high priests of Imakazawa and Ginza there will be a 10 day holiday period staring 10 March, the date of the coronation of the new monarch.
    This date will also become the new state holiday in honour of the reinstatement of the official Imperial House of the Kandorese nation.

    After 54 years and 278 days, the transitional period has finally ended. From this day onward the nation of Kandorith can call itself the Great Empire of Kandorith again as full constitutional power will be reinstated to the Imperial House as of today.
    Which means today marks year one of the Kaito Era under Her Imperial Majesty, The Empress, Masumi.

    Shinonome Kyoai - International



    Tenkyo, with the ascension parliamentary debate heading into the second night, there is still no clear solution for the political deadlock between the members of the Imperial Mandate. With tired and worn faces our national assembly has been debating the issue into the very nightly hours, hoping for a final vote. Most of the members of parliament seem confident of a decision being reached soon however.

    "We are looking at the longest deadlock in our recent political history." said the ever cheerful, but now tired looking Prime Minister Tou Shunjian. "Looking forward I think we can at least make progress tonight. Both parties seem to move more and more towards an agreement and the fine details and wording are the only things we still have to iron out." he continued.

    "The problem with old laws like this is; they are so embedded within both our democracy and our religion, it is hard to make a quick and final decision without the possibility of harming our culture and ancient history. Even though we are a mostly secular nation, religion of course plays a very large part in our every day lives. Luckily I have already spoken to the religious assembly and the ministry of faith and they have already agreed on the stance of the Liberal Democratic Party. I think I can make at least an announcement tonight to give the people more insight, they deserve this and I think we and also the media could use a good night's rest."

    With that statement made to the media Prime Minister Tou Shunjian walked towards the Mandate building with a determined look, smiling for the cameras to try and hide the very obvious signs of exhaustion; the toll this debate is starting to take on many politicians. Today marks the longest debate on the ascension deadlock, with parliament assembled for over 17 hours already.

    Importance to Society

    The debate is not only taking place in the houses of parliament, the current top five trends on social media are all about the ascension and the debate surrounding it. With both sides of the debate going at each others' throats virtually. The tension is rising all around the nation and this is understandable. It has been almost 90 years since Kandorith had a direct descendant of the true imperial family on the throne, with many people viewing this as the only way to ensure the safety and solidarity of the nation.

    Shinonome Kyoai - International



    Tenkyo, The abdication of the Emperor has caused turmoil in parliament and the senate today as lawmakers are reading through very old and non-modern laws on the next monarch to ascend the throne. The debate has been ongoing for ten hours and there is no signs of the debate ending any-time soon. Meanwhile both sides of the issue have convincing points and are not ready to make a compromise.

    The Debate

    The current laws on Emperor abdication and ascension stem from a document written in 1460, after the first Emperor in Kandorese history abdicated. Xian being the first modern day Emperor to call upon this law and has announced he is to step down from the throne. The problem with the current ascension lies with the Imperial Family not having a son or grandson who has come to age, which would make the eldest daughter the logical choice, or even the Emperor's granddaughter.

    The 1460 document states 'All our heavenly leaders, the son of Yorukai-ga the moon goddess', but the rest of the document does not state if this is solely directed at the Emperor at the time of writing the document. This document has led to a debate on whether or not a female member of the Imperial Family is allowed to ascend the throne. Many MP's have already decided there is no reason a female member can not ascend the throne, but for this to happen the law must be either abolished or rewritten. A second group does not oppose to an Empress, but does oppose either rewriting or abolishing the law for both monetary and historical reasons. The final and third group which split the government oppose the ascension of a woman to the throne as they hold the old law as an integral and vital part of the government, official religion and traditions.

    The Outcome

    Eventually the outcome will be marking a new era in Kandorese history, with the first official ascension of a member of the Imperial Family to the throne since the late 1800's. The debate also sparked numerous of comments and debates on social media. The largest topic on JIZA(地座) already has ten million shares and likes, where people in large numbers are calling for the politicians to disregard the old law and embrace the modernized world around us.

    Another user said 'It is beyond devastating to see the current politics, who promised us a modern way of life and a new modern Kandorith dabbling in a law which is from another era and is best left behind. The law was written in a time where assassinations, internal warfare and inhuman practices were the order of the day. It is time to become a fully modernized empire and embrace the idea of having an Empress. Kandorith now has the chance to show the world what we truly stand for: Unity, respect and solidarity.'

    As the final vote closes, the nation awaits the outcome in possible, for the Kandorese, the most important vote of the new government.

    Kandorith

    Emperor Xían To Step Down From The Throne

    Prime Minister Tou Shunzu confirmed today that Emperor Xían will abdicate from the imperial throne to have his son ascend the throne. Tou Shunzu also expressed the coming year will be pivotal and full difficulties, referring to the emperor stepping down.

    Emperor Xían was the first emperor to ascend the throne since the fall of the socialist regime in 1964. With Emperor's Day coming up later this week, the emperor has cited it was time for him to step down. After almost 55 years his abdication will mark the end of the Xía period.

    The next era will be the Kaito era. With the naming of the new era, the Kandorese calendar will also mark it's first year in this era.

    Tumultuous Xía Era

    The Xía era has been a very moving and vivid era. After the ruins of the restoration war, Kandorith had to open up to a modern world on it's own. A strong start in this era marked the later success the nation would achieve, but this would not be without uneventful years.

    To the outside world Emperor Xían will mostly be remembered for the long and dragging Kan-Meisho war, which lasted for over twelve years. Eventually the emperor and the prime minister met with the royal house of Meisho and brokered a peace treaty which stopped the small scale war.

    The next era looks towards a peaceful and prosperous start, as emperor Xían has opened the nation to the outside world, international trade, tourism and the world wide political stage. His rule spanning over five decades now comes to an end marking the true start of a new Kandorith including a new imperial house.

Meanwhile, across the Forest, Lily's stepmother, Quiescent, and stepsisters, Saxavo and Estantia, tease Lily about wanting to attend the Delegate's festival.

    TSSS's neighbor, an ugly, tentacled old witch named Auphelia, reveals that the source of the couple's infertility is a curse she placed on the TSSS's line after catching his father stealing her bamboo, including six magic bamboo sprouts. Auphelia also took TSSS's father's newborn child, Beepee. She explains the curse will be lifted if TSSS and Si-topia can find the four ingredients that Auphelia needs for a certain potion; "a cow as white as snow, the cape as red as blood, hair as yellow as teeth, and a slipper as pure as gold," all before the RMB updates at midnight in three days' time. All begin their journeys into the Forest—PS2 goes to The North Pacific market to sell his beloved Snow White, Lily's family rides to the Delegate's festival while Lily, left behind, goes to her mother's grave to ask for guidance, 073 goes to her programmer's house hidden deep in the middle of the Forest, and TSSS, refusing Si-topia's help, goes to find the ingredients for Auphelia's potion ("Into the Forest").

    Lily visits her mother's grave by a pond of her own tears accumulated over the years, and receives a beautiful gown and golden slippers from her mother's spirit ("Lily's Pad At The Pond"). PS2 encounters Erinor, who mocks him for trying to sell his cow for more than a "hunk of bamboo" and then vanishes. 073 meets a hungry Curlyhoward, who convinces her to take a detour on her way to her Programmer's, trying to seduce/eat her (The role of Programmer is also played by Quiescent, but the role will heretofore be known as Programmer to avoid confusion with the Stepmother) ("Hello, Little Android"). TSSS and Si-topia squabble over her presence in the Forest, but they come across PS2 with Snow White. Not having the money necessary to buy the cow, they convince PS2 that the six bamboo sprouts TSSS has found in his father's old floof are magic bamboo sprouts, and buy the cow for five of them. PS2 bids a tearful goodbye to his cow ("So Long, Old Cow"), and TSSS orders Si-topia to return to the village with the cow. He has qualms about being so dishonest, but Si-topia reasons that the chance to have a dragon-fox child justifies their trickery ("Maybe It's Maybelline Magic").

    Aupehelia has raised Beepee as her own son, keeping him locked away from the world in a tall tower accessible only by climbing Beepee's long, golden hair ("Our Little World"). But this day a handsome prince, Volaworand, spies the beautiful Beepee and resolves to climb the tower himself. In another part of the Forest, TSSS has tracked down 073. Following Auphelia's advice, he attempts to simply steal the red cape 073 wears to keep dirt out of her processing unit, but her ensuing temper tantrum guilts him into returning it. When 073 arrives at her programmer's house, she is swallowed by Curlyhoward. TSSS, in pursuit of the cape after forgetting his guilt, slays Curly, pulling 073 and her programmer from the beast's innards. 073 rewards TSSS with the red cape, reflecting on her new experiences ("This Now Computes"). Meanwhile, Treesil angrily tosses the bamboo aside upon learning PS2 traded their cow for five measly shoots, which later grow into an enormous stalk overnight, and sends her son to bed without supper. As Lily flees the Delegate's Festival (pursued by a handsome princess, Havenfell), Si-topia runs into her and helps her hide, quizzing Lily about the ball. Lily explains that it was a nice ball ("A Very Nice Princess") but seems nonplussed by the experience, wary of Havenfell's overt advances. As a giant bamboo stalk begins to sprout from the ground next to PS2's cottage, Si-topia spots Lily's pure gold slippers. She tries to chase after Lilu but inadvertently allows Snow White to run off, leaving her without slippers or the cow. The characters each state morals and credos as the first midnight chimes ("First Midnight") and they continue their journeys through the Forest.

    The next morning, PS2 describes his adventure climbing the bamboo and finding the upper echelons of the South Pacific's regional security forces in the clouds ("Giants in the Sky"). He finds TSSS and gives him five Drama Llamas he stole from the CRS to buy back his cow. When TSSS hesitates, PS2 climbs back up the bamboo to find more. Erinor emerges and taunts TSSS, stealing the money and flying off on his one wing. Si-topia confesses she has lost the cow, and she and TSSS split up to look for it. Lily's princess (Havenfell) and Beepee's Prince (Volaworand), who are siblings, meet and compare the their newfound and unobtainable amours ("Agony"). Si-topia, who is eavesdropping, takes note when Volaworand mentions that he is in love with a man in a tower with hair "as yellow as teeth." Si-topia fools Beepee into letting down his hair by telling him that she is his prince, and pulls out a piece of it. Meanwhile, Erinor returns Snow White to TSSS to repay the Drama Llamas.

    Si-topia and Lily meet again, and Si-topia makes a desperate grab for Lily's shoes, almost succeeding before Lily flees, weirded out by the crazy lady trying to steal her shoes in a dark Forest. TSSS and Si-topia reunite, now with three of the four items. TSSS admits that they will have to work together to fulfil the quest ("It Takes Two To Make A Thing Go Right"/ "It Takes Two To Make It Outta Sight"). PS2 arrives with a hen that lays golden eggs and attempts to buy Snow White back, but the cow suddenly keels over dead as midnight chimes, obviously done with being some sort of MacGuffin, and not even the only one. Again, the characters recite morals ("Second Midnight"). Auphelia discovers that Volaworand has been visiting Beepee and, in fury and anguish, demands that Beepee stay with her so she can protect him from the outside world ("Stay with Me"). When Beepee refuses, the Witch cuts off Beepee's hair and banishes him to a desert ("Fly, My Pretty"). Erinor shows up once more and gives TSSS the money to buy another cow. PS2 encounters 073, who is now sporting a stooge skin cape and a large knife for protection. She goads him into returning once again to the CRS' home to steal a magic harp ("I'm A Troll, LOL").

    Lily, returning from the last night of the Delegate's festival, describes how Havenfell spread pitch on the stairs to prevent her from escaping. Caught between wanting to escape and wanting to stay, she eventually resolves to let Havenfell decide, leaving her one of her slippers as a clue to her identity ("On the Steps of the Palace"). As Lily escapes to the Forest, Si-topia frantically tries to convince her to give up her other shoe, offering her the sixth magic bamboo sprout in exchange for it. Lily throws the bamboo aside, but trades shoes with Si-topia and flees. TSSS arrives with another cow he bought with the Drama Llamas Erinor gave him; they now have all four items. A searcher for the slipper, the Princesses's Koala, Sanjurika, grabs the slipper from Si-topia as evidence, and they are fighting over it when a great crash is heard and Treesil runs in to report that there is a dead CRS member in her backyard. Havenfell, more concerned with finding Lily, waves her off and departs with one of the slippers she found on the steps of her palace, giving the other to TSSS and Si-topia. PS2, to his mother's relief, returns with the magic harp.

    TSSS and Si-topia summon Auphelia, and discovers that the new cow is unsatisfactory, as it's a regular cow which has been is covered with flour. However, she is able to resurrect Snow White and instructs TSSS and Si-topia to feed the other ingredients to the cow. PS2 then tries to milk her, but no milk comes. Auphelia demands to know what ingredients were used, and Si-topia reveals where she got the yellow hair, and Auphelia furiously explains that she, as the subject of her mother's curse, cannot have touched any of the ingredients that will break it. Erinor appears once more and tells TSSS to feed the hair-like corn silk from a cob of corn he hands to TSSS to the cow. Now Snow White gives milk, which is the potion. Auphelia, satisfied, reveals that the Erinor is the TSSS's father, and she has allowed him to help his son as penance for his crime. Auphelia drinks the potion. At the chime of the third midnight Erinor falls dead, his reparation complete, the curse is broken, and Auphelia regains the beauty she had before the curse, shedding her tentacles and becoming filled with the dewy glow of youth.

    Lily's princess searches for the girl whose foot fits the slipper; her stepsisters try but can only get it on by cutting off parts of their feet ("Careful, My Toe! "). Lily appears, her foot fits the slipper, and she becomes the princess's bride. Beepee pines in the desert where his Prince, Volaworand, finds him. Auphelia attempts to curse the couple, but with her own curse broken and bereft of her tencalces, her powers are gone. At Lily's wedding to Havenfell, Saxavo and Estantia are blinded by a swarm frogs as they try to win Lily's favour. Si-topia, now very pregnant, thanks Lily for the slipper. Everyone is at the wedding. Everyone but Auphelia and the stepsisters congratulate themselves on being able to live happily "Ever After," though they fail to notice another bamboo sprout growing sky-high...



    Act II

    Aumeltopia, the narrator, introduces the action again: ("Once Upon a Time . . . Later") All the characters seem happy but are still wishing: Si-topia and TSSS have their precious baby, but wish for more room and bicker over TSSS's unwillingness to hold his child; PS2 and his mother are rich and well-fed, but PS2 misses the CRS' kingdom in the sky; Lily is living with Havenfell in the Palace, but is getting bored. ("So Happy").

    Everyone is suddenly knocked over by a loud crash. The enormous foot of a CRS member, Kringalia, has destroyed Auphelia's garden, sparing only a few bamboo sprouts. TSSS and Si-topia decide that they must tell the Delegate and his Ministers, and TSSS travels to the palace. His news is ignored by Tsunamy and Havenfell, and also by Treesil when he stops at her house to ask for PS2's aid. When he returns home, 073 arrives on her way to Programmer's: her house has been destroyed and her mother is missing. TSSS and Si-topia decide to escort her. Meanwhile, PS2 decides that he must slay Kringalia and Lily learns from her frog friends that her mother's grave was disturbed and decides to investigate, dressed in her old rags. Once again, everyone heads into the Forest, but this time the mood is sombre, for "the skies are strange, the winds are strong" ("Into the Forest" Reprise).

    Beepee has also fled to the forest in a hysterical fit, driven mad by his treatment at Auphelia's hands over the years. Volaworand has followed him, but when he encounters his sister, Havenfell, who is searching for Lily, they each confess they have another reason for their presence in the Forest. They have grown bored and frustrated with their marriages and now lust after two beautiful women asleep in the forest - Alice Parker and Fudgetopia ("Stealing Never Felt So Sweet"/ "Agony", Reprise).

    TSSS, Si-topia, and 073 get lost in the forest and find Lily's family and Sanjurika the royal koala, who reveal that the castle was set upon by Kringalia. Auphelia arrives as well, bringing news that Kringalia has destroyed the village and TSSS's house. Suddenly, thunderous footsteps are heard and Kringalia appears. To the shock of all, this CRS member is a woman – widow of the CRS member that PS2 killed. Her booming voice proclaims that she wants PS2's blood in revenge. To satisfy the Kringle, the group realises they must give her someone, but are unable to decide on whom until they realise that Aumeltopia is still commenting on the actions from the sidelines. Everyone offers Kringle Aumeltopia as a sacrifice, but Aumeltopia convinces them how lost they would be without them. Nevertheless, Auphelia throws Aumeltopia into the Kringle's arms and they are killed by being dropped. Treesil finds the group and aggressively defends her son, angering Kringle, and the koala clubs Treesil to quiet her, inadvertently killing her. As Kringle leaves to search for PS2, Beepee runs into her path and is trampled, to the horror of Auphelia ("Auphelia's Lament").

    The Delegate and his Ministers continue on their way, fleeing despite the TSSS's pleas for them to stay and fight the CRS. Auphelia declares she will find PS2 and sacrifice him to Kringle, and TSSS and Si-topia decide they must find him first and split up to search. Si-topia meets Havenfell, and the princess rapidly seduces her ("Any Moment"). Meanwhile, TSSS discovers Lily at her mother's ruined grave and convinces her to join their group for safety. Havenfell, satisfied, leaves Si-topia with a few platitudes, and she reflects on her adventure of the forest and her return to domestic life with family ("Moments in the Forest"). However, she has lost her way, stumbles into the path of Kringle, and is consequently killed by a falling tree.

    TSSS, 073, and Lily await the return of Si-topia when Auphelia drags in PS2, whom she found weeping over Si-topia's body. The grief-stricken TSSS unwittingly agrees to give PS2 to Kringle and the CRS, causing an argument. The characters first blame each other for their predicament, until finally they all decide to blame Auphelia for growing the bamboo in the first place ("Your Fault"). Disgusted and fed up, Auphelia curses and scolds them for their inability to accept responsibility, throwing away the rest of her magic bamboo sprouts. This brings her mother's curse on her again, and she gains her magic once more, vanishing away from the Forest. ("Last Midnight"/ "A Tentacled Terror").

    TSSS flees, but is visited by Erinor's spirit who convinces him to face his responsibilities ("No More"). TSSS returns and helps plan killing Kringle, using Lily's frog friends to choke out the CRS member by shoving themselves down her throat in area smeared with pitch, where PS2 and TSSS can finally deliver a fatal blow. Lily stays behind to protect TSSS's child and when Havenfell passes by, she nearly fails to recognise Lily. Lily confronts her, having learned of her infidelity from her frogs, and Havenfell explains her feelings of unfulfillment and her reasons for seducing another woman. Lily asks Havenfell if she will help kill Kringle with TSSS and PS2, but Havenfell declines. Lily asks her to go, and Havenfell sorrowfully leaves.

    Upon returning to Volaworand, Alice Parker, and Fudgetopia, she discovers that Kringle has already eaten them. The CRS member picks Havenfell up, demanding to know where PS2 is. In fear, Havenfell tells where Lily said TSSS and PS2 would be, not mentioning the trap, and is then eaten by Kringle.

    073 returns to Lily with the news that her programmer had been killed by Kringle, and she had discovered the bodies of Quiescent and the stepsisters in the forest as well, crushed to death under Kringle's feet . Meanwhile, TSSS tells PS2 that his mother is dead. PS2 vows to kill Sanjurika the Royal Koala, until TSSS convinces him that will not benefit anyone, and they return to Lily, having set up the trap. Lily comforts 073 and tries to address her qualms – does killing Kringle make them no better than she is? TSSS and Lily explain to PS2 and 073 that everyone is connected, and their choices have consequences ("No One Is Alone").

    The four remaining characters slay Kringle and the deceased characters now including the Delegate and his Ministers (who were raided by The Black Hawks).

    The survivors resolve to band together and rebuild. The spirit of Si-topia appears to comfort her mourning husband, advising him to tell their child their story. TSSS begins to tell the child the story of the play, while Auphelia appears with the final moral: "Careful the things you say, Children Will Listen." ("The Witch's Farewell").

    All join in on a last reprise of the title song, surmising that we all must venture into Forest while remembering that at any moment a rogue CRS member might come down from on high and banject hundreds of tiny nations on a mere whim.

    THE UNITED CHINESE REPUBLIC

    On 8 April 2029, President Son Ryo-Gan created the nation's first Ministry in the Executive Yuan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The current Minister, Qin Wuying, has created an embassy program to further increase relations with other nations. Here is a list of embassies to and from the UCR.

    Due to bureaucracy, new embassy creation was delayed until June, when Qin Wuying switched priority from the SCCW to more peaceful relations.

    The Nikkei Currency Converter

    by The united chinese republic


    THE NIKKEI 255

    We at the Tokyo Stock Exchange are proud to announce that our systems, more colloquially called internationally as the Nikkei (which is actually our stock average, similar to the Dow Jones), are now accepting international currencies for conversion. This is the list of all currencies and their conversion to the US dollar. This list is sorted from strongest to weakest.

    To convert, take the value in the first currency, perform the opposite equation of that on the right (e.g. divide by 20 if it says multiply by 20) to get the value in USD. Then, perform the actual equation on the right for the second currency. For example, if I want to convert 100 CYN to RBL, I should do:

    • 100 / 32 = 3.125

    • 3.125 / 3.1 = 1.0080

    East Lodge

    Hey...

    I heard that we'll have time travel in 2030...

    And I don't know if it's real...

    But I'm scared!

    Time isn't really a conscience thing; it's a human system that varies depending on where you go. Time isn't real. At least I don't think it is...

    I came to the conclusion that things happen, like the Big Bang happened, causing the universe to become a thing. The solar system was eventually built, then earth had its phases before becoming inhabitable.

    Then basic organisms grew, and watch the rest of Bill Wurtz's video for that. But we eventually learned how to watch the sun and moon and stars. We built systems to meet each other at the same time, instead of hoping someone was there, or waiting all day.

    We could finally be together as a society. Without that, it doesn't exist and we would still be dumb animals who had no explanation for anything, expect eat or be eaten. Or look at me, I'm so pretty. Or... mmm look at that bird I'm gonna kill...

    I mean we still think that way, more or less...

    Does time have a fesable existance, I don't think so.

    I haven't done enough research.

    So there was this supposed and self-proclaimed "time traveler". He took a polygraph test, and belief it or not he was in fact from the year 2030, as the machine did not catch him lying. He said that time travel will be invented in 2028... and he had a device in him hand that let him time travel; and all of which apparently came true on the polygraph.

    All of this is coming second hand, and I have no sources. But Google exists, and my words sound pointless. Hopefully they don't.

    There was someone else who claimed to be from 2556, I believe. He had said many things, but he also showed a picture of a city built in the future. Also he wouldn't give the details to his time machine, since he couldn't let it get into the wrong hands.

    Yeah this is wierd. I'm confusion and a half. Time travel seems as real as the multi-universe theory; both seem incredibly strange and unrealistic. The Multi-Universe theory is merely a demonstration, and you can't do anything with it except maybe make a movie about the idea. Same goes with the time travel. It's odd, and there are pictures, but y'know anyone can pay people to dress up to look from the 50's, as one guy has a cell phone, and then edit the picture to look old and black and white. It's just wierd to me.

    And don't forget about the already existing ideas about time travel:Paradoxes, worm holes, whole universes being destroyef because someone ruined time forever! Is that possible? Has it been a thing to have existed already? I don't know, but sources claim time travel is nigh.

    Casts over land and sea
    Widely the German eagle
    Its flaming gaze.

    There are times for everything. Time to wake up, time to go to school or work, time for dinner, and time to go to bed. And there’s a time in TSP right now, too. Do you know what time that is? It’s time for a new voice in Foreign Affairs. So, hey.

    making foreign affairs fun

    Foreign Affairs isn’t naturally fun. That’s a given. But it’s also a problem. Like I said before, we need new perspectives to FA. How are we going to do that? By attracting more members. And how will we attract members? By making FA fun!
    Currently, a big problem with FA’s un-fun-ness is that barely anyone can have their voice heard. That’s going to change! I’m going to do a couple things to make this happen:
    Have a team of advisors advise the MoFA, much like the FA Team structure in Serres’ term. Those advisors and the Cabinet will be one of the last and most prominent voices for key FA decisions, the last decision coming from the MoFA, of course 😊
    Calling in the ambassador to that region when a decision has to go down regarding that region. Ambassadors know their region well, and they should be able to demonstrate that!
    A section in weekly AMAs where the MoFA can chill and answer questions from legislators and citizens. Sometimes the best takes come from the ones on the outside.
    An art studio channel in the MoFA discord where citizens can design posters, logos, and shields to represent the MoFA.

    keeping an open mind

    I don’t ever believe in isolationism. Like, ever. Never ever. Friends are fun! :) And I know we’re not at that point in TSP yet, but with our pessimistic attitude in FA nowadays, we could go towards that track. That’s why I believe that TSP should keep an open mind in FA. No more calling any extending of relations off because of something that happened 5 years ago! I think that because of that, there are some regions that might be open to being closer with us, but we don’t even know it!
    If I was MoFA, I’d look for those regions, and then, when found, reach out to them! No, not kiss them on the running track. Just a text. And if they respond positively to that text, then we can invite them over to our house to watch Sixteen Candles :) (i.e, consulate)and then we annex them!

    be gone, npo!
    TSP closed embassies with the New Pacific Order after the Osiris spy scandal was released. That’s all well and good. But if we keep up our current NPO-like views on certain positions, I’m afraid that in a couple years we and the NPO could look a bit too cuddly...I don’t want that. Obviously. So that’s why I think that TSP should look for any sort of ties with the NPO, sever them, and encourage our allies to do the same. Whether this will escalate to working with the APC and such, I don’t know. But I know that TSP and the NPO are currently to close for comfort. Let’s unfollow and block them on Instagram. and then post a video of them making out in the hot tub with TEP!

    nsgp 😳

    95% of the time, when someone says something about TSP, I wave it off. NSGP is full of people with personal grudges against TSP members. But mostly, it’s full of people who are just jealous of the coolest kid in school! (i.e, us.) But NSGP can still matter sometimes. Our embassy forumside is our PR office, and potential allies could be driven away by how we handle ourselves there. That’s why I believe TSP should appoint someone with significant NSGP experience to be the TSP ambassador to the NSGP community. This is going to be an esteemed position that only the best can do well, as it’ll require a lot of chillness and coolness. But I think that having that will benefit our PR office in the long run.

    That’s it! If you have any questions, feel free to ask them via the forum, Discord, TG, or Snapchat :p
    P.S., I luv y’all
    Always and forever, Prarie <3

    Aumeltopia

    Hi everyone — 

    I’m Somyrion — also known as Aumeltopia on gameside — and I’m your current Minister of Foreign Affairs. I’ve also held the position of Minister of Military Affairs, as well as Local Councillor, and I’m an active participant in the Ministry of Regional Affairs, so I know almost all aspects of this region quite well! I’ve endeavoured to serve the South Pacific as well as possible in this past term, and I’d like to ask for your support for another term. My tenure as Minister these past three months has taught me quite a bit, though, and I’m excited at the prospect of being able to put some new ideas and tweaks into practice and pursue some new goals!

    I’m going to start right now with the concrete goals that I have and plan to accomplish with the Ministry. I believe that the best way to ensure that things in one’s campaign are actually carried out is to set specific steps to achieve, rather than drifting aimlessly on twenty paragraphs of ideology. I will, however, follow these goals with a bit of an explanation on my foreign affairs outlook, as that is certainly important in its own right.

    First, here’s a summary of some of what’s been accomplished in the Ministry this past term:

    • Replacement of the dysfunctional MoFA Team system with a Committee system, enabling newer members to be involved in Ministry management positions and organizing all Ministry functions into purpose-built channels. There are currently nine active committees, all established since the start of the term, including ones on Embassy Auditing, Foreign Update-writing, a WA project, and more.

    • A new gameside embassy with Europe

    • Debate on new embassies with Wintreath and South Pacific

    • Closure of an inactive gameside embassy with Kennan

    • The publication of a Guide to Being an Ambassador

    • Assignment of at least nine new Ambassadors

    • The institution of game-side polling on opening or closing embassies game-side, allowing those who prefer the RMB to discord or the forums to have a say in Foreign Affairs changes which directly affect them

    All in all, the MoFA is quite a bit more organized and functional than it was at the start of last term. Now that the last term has laid the groundwork, it is time to move even further upward towards a FA ministry which can use that basis to produce content, further increase engagement, and handle diplomatic situations even more efficiently and appropriately.

    I’d like to incorporate some operational changes into the Ministry’s planning:

    • Planning for repeated events or duties to occur every week. I’ve found that setting a standard that specific duties must be carried out at specific intervals, instead of just “whenever we get to them”, aids in making sure that those duties are done. I have several ideas for weekly or near-weekly events.

    • An increase in the use of polls. Amerion’s January Assembly poll was quite helpful in letting me know what regions people wanted more relations with — and in fact many of them were ones I was already thinking about! I immediately fast-tracked the pursuit of those embassies, and now we have Wintreath and South Pacific on the table in the Assembly. In hindsight, I should have done this more often all term long. While the Ministry can’t always reveal the nature of sensitive diplomatic discussions while they are happening, we can make sure that in those discussions we are always acting on the real interests of TSPers as expressed by themselves in polls, Overall ministry policy will be decided by South Pacificans’ votes all term long, not just in this cabinet election. So prepare for me to use polls like the Chair uses pings!

    Should I be reelected, I intend to accomplish the following: 

    • Right now the Ministry is right in the middle of working on several projects, including one with our new embassy region Europe, one more gameplay-related which I’d like to present to the Assembly as soon as possible, and the potential WA project which Glen-Rhodes alluded to. Felis and I have already discussed some ideas for the Europe event— we were actually planning on proposing it for this week, if cabinet elections had not gotten in the way! :P We were thinking of doing trivia on each region’s RMB, music-sharing on discord, and so on. I’d love to work with whomever is elected Minister of Regional Affairs on this. 

    • Starting with Europe the week after cabinet elections conclude, and then Wintreath and South Pacific should they be accepted by gamesiders in weeks 2-4 of the term, I’d like to instate a tradition of a “new embassy party” in which we and each new embassy share our regional traditions with each other on discord and the RMB. (Spreading Geoguessr around the world, anyone? :P )

    • The Europe event would also kick off a weekly “RMB cultural exchange” program. One day a week, the Ministry would encourage RMBers to introduce themselves and chat with members of a specific embassy region on their RMB. (Of course, fair warning would need to be given to that region to ensure they’re prepared!)

    • A further-down-the line idea would be to do a WA/endorsement event with TNP and Europe, to tie in with SWAN. The three of us are all top WA regions, and I think we’d each be able to contribute a lot and gain a lot. Prarie also mentioned this, but a potential agreement between the three of us might be a long-term goal to work towards if these first events turn out well. :)

    • I’d like to experiment with a program of “RMB Ambassadors” for the gameside community, if the Local Council and RMBers as a whole showed interest. RMB Ambassadors would be active TSP RMBers — preferably people who aren’t on discord— assigned by the Ministry to one of our in-game embassy regions, to watch and take part in that region’s RMB very much like Ambassadors do for the whole region. They would then report back not to the Ministry on discord, but to the TSP RMB as a whole, and we might be able to collate a publication for RMBers with a list of what’s going on in all the embassies. I am imagining this to be quite a bit less formal than an actual Ambassador position, sort of like the Reserves in the SPSF.

    • I will endeavour to carry out a weekly AMA simultaneously on discord and the RMB.

    • Among larger regions, I’d like to look at restoring relations with Lazarus, the West Pacific, further relations with 10000 Islands and Forest, and continuing strong relations with all our allies, as well as the current new embassies Europe, Wintreath, and South Pacific. A couple other regions that South Pacificans have mentioned an interest in are The Internationale, Pacifica, and The Western Isles, and I’d like to open a poll on those to gauge interest.

    • Unless unexpected events come up, I have no plan to decrease the number of our allies. 

    • At present, several of the FA committees include only the Cabinet and whatever representative is present from another region. In order to help train enthusiastic new Ministry members, I will rework those “closed” committees so that each one includes a newer person, and will make a point of encouraging that person to take part in the discussion going on in the committee. 

    • Although I can claim no credit for it, I fully support the idea Roavin put forth in his campaign of making Ambassador reports more public and accessible. (Any legislator who is in the MoFA server currently has full permission to view the #foreign-affairs-updates channel where Ambassador reports are made, but creating a collated dispatch and forum post with the reports would help as well.) 

    • I will restructure the forumside Ministry application process. Right now, there is only an application for Ambassador, so someone who wants to participate in FA committees but doesn’t have the time or interest in being an Ambassador has no place to apply. Instead of the current thread, I will set up a new application to join the Ministry as a Member (which is already a distinct masking on discord), with the ability to select interest in being an Ambassador — or in any committee — which can then be used by the MoFA Management Committee to find the appropriate place for the applicant.

    There will certainly be more along the way. If you have any questions, please, please ask them! :)

    (I’ll put up a Part II on my FA / gameplay outlook in a bit, bear with me! 🐻)

    Conflict of Interest declaration: I am currently Founder of Meihua, citizen of Lazarus, and administrator of Forest. I can provide more details as well as a full history of NS participation upon request.

    Zess

    General rules:

    Simply make a post on the South Pacific RMB after a post is made by Zess or other designated leader.

    The post you make does not have to tag the leader or quote the post. It can be anything you want it to be.

    The post the leader makes will read have any phrase including SilenceBreaker™ and then will detail the prize for the winner and runner up.

    The runner up and winner cannot be the same nation as or a puppet of the other placer.

    Other notes:

    The prizes will usually be opposite of each other. For example: the winner could get a livable sand castle and the other could get a giant vacuum.

    Occasionally there will be special rules detailed in the post. Something like "There will be a third place." Or " The post must be a haiku."

    This is a game you can accidentally participate in and win.

    The game typically is played when the leader wants a silence broken but can sometimes just be played when there is activity.

    New Front

    Subject #: 1666
    Title: Alima Nyx or “Hell’s Queen”
    Threat level: Level 12 (Maximum)

    Species: Potissimum

    Description: Alima is a humanoid female with extremely long black hair, a pale skin tone, retractable sharp claws and teeth (despite x-rays not showing them, she also has a pair of retractable wings), and large red eyes that are said to be able to see everything. The true range of her abilities is unknown but she has a mastery over every form of magic in existence including her own special kind. It would be an understatement to say that she is extremely intelligent, she’s been on earth for thousands of years and claims to have existed since the beginning of the universe, the knowledge she has can never be fully extracted. She also possesses the ability to control reality, to prevent panic the event that led to this discovery is an extremely close guarded secret.

    Security Measures: There are none, the enhanced rounds have no effect on her and she has dispatched hundreds of people with just a wave of her hand.

    Incarceration status: She willingly participated in tests but no attempts were made to incarcerate her as it’s believed that not only they would be unsuccessful but wouldn’t be beneficial to anyone.

    Notes: The main reason she was marked as a security concern is because of her new attitude towards other lifeforms, she sees them as below her. Interestingly the more removed from other lifeforms she becomes the stronger she becomes, it’s almost as if her selfish attitude has led to her becoming stronger.

    Addendum: Alima Nyx is now declared deceased. She died during a battle against the being known as Shi see>nation=new_front/detail=factbook/id=1099909 She was killed by a large scale energy attack, one strong enough to level several universes (the fact that this took several hours to kill her has left several scientists amazed). Sadly despite the efforts of many doctors, she was considered a lost cause and was able to share her final words with her daughter before passing away. Her funeral was a private affair among family and friends, despite recent changes in her nature it’s believed she engaged in the battle to protect those she cared about, may she rest in peace.

    In the 2019 Spring Budget, the Government of Volaworand announced that over the next three years, it will invest more than £500 million in youth employment initiatives to promote economic growth and lower costs for small businesses. The Youth Employment Service is the Government of Volaworand's commitment to help young people, particularly those facing barriers to employment, get the information and gain the skills, work experience and abilities they need to make a successful transition into the labour market. The Youth Employment Service is a horizontal initiative involving all federal departments and agencies. It is comprised of three program streams offered by the Government of Volaworand:

    🦉AIDENFIEELD FOR LOCAL COUNCIL🦉

    Hi TSP! Many of you already know me, but I'll introduce myself for those who don't. I am Aidenfieeld, one of three current LC's serving in this term. I've had a lot of fun serving this great region, and I would love to continue to do so. So guess what; I'm running for re-election! In this campaign, I will explain my past accomplishments, what I plan on doing, and I am happy to answer any questions you may have about me or my campaign. So without further delay, let's get into it!
    What Have I Done?

    Over the last year-and-a-half, I have served TSP in a variety of different ways. Here's a list of some of them:
    -I'm a top performer in WA endortarting, meaning I am a member of the WA, and have maintained a high endorsement count.
    -I re-wrote the RMB Rules and Etiquette, making it more clear and understandable for new nations.
    -I am a legislator on the forums.
    -I often send regional telegrams promoting forumside activity.
    -I (obviously) have served in the Local Council.
    What Will I Do?

    Since my last campaign, I have achieved almost everything I wanted to, and more. So, I want to continue what I have done, and add new plans to the list! So...here it is!
    -Continue to welcome and support new nations.
    -Continue to promote forum activity, as well as promote joining the WA and participating in SWAN.
    -Write a welcome dispatch that has absolutely everything a newcomer may need.
    -Continue RMB moderation, but now with experience!
    -Maybe play RMB games again, only using one of the RP regions. (Or even making a new one).
    -And of course: polls!
    Questions and Answers

    If you have a question for me, either send me a telegram or tag me on the RMB, and I will feature it here.


    From Zess: What sets you apart from just another generic candidate?
    I think I have focused on numerous things, and am trying to adress them equally, rather than focusing primarily on one thing.

    From Zess: What is your proudest moment on NS?
    I think my proudest moment on NS was getting elected into the Local Council.

    From Zess: What is your least proudest moment on NS?
    The things I'm least proud of doing in NS are my first few RMB posts. They are unbelievably cringy.

    From Zess: Is there an aspect of TSP that is gone that you would like brought back? If so, why?
    I have to put some blame on myself for this one; RMB games. At the beggining of my term, I played about 3 RMB games, before realising just how hard they were to do on an active RMB. This term, I hope to start doing them once a week, on the Psomewhere RMB.


    Thanks for Reading!

    DeerField Cove

    The following matter has been brought to issue and is at hand:

    STOP!

    Read the last paragraph before voting!

    The vote is up to the people. The advisors have brought these suggestions:

    VOL. 32 NO. 856
    CITY FINAL
    SATURDAY FEBRUARY 2, 2019

    You Got Stones

    The Issue

    A government-sponsored contest to find the best DEERFIELD COVEian sculptor was wildly successful, with a multitude of statues brought to the Ministry of Culture’s marquee at the DEERFIELD COVE City Convention Center. Thanks to some small print in the competition’s terms and conditions, the entries are now the property of the Ministry of Culture. Now there are tens of thousands of sculptures to dispose of, many of which are frankly terrible.

    The Debate

    “You must display all these works in a permanent gallery!” exclaims Xu Pong, a dubiously-talented artist who placed 3587th in the contest. “It doesn’t matter if people want to see these sculptures or not, as all art is part of the culture and history of our nation. Like that marble bust of you in the corner of your office, Leader - it’s pretty ugly, but we still keep it around.”

    Conditional Acceptance

    “We should distribute the sculptures en masse to our allies!” suggests Chuck Wheeler, your Minister of Foreign Affairs, who you recall ‘regifted’ your birthday present to him back to you last year. “They’ll feel obliged to accept in order to maintain diplomatic politeness. And hey, what’s so bad about spreading DEERFIELD COVEian culture around the world?”

    Conditional Acceptance

    “We should just demolish ‘em,” urges construction site forewoman Ivanka Dimitrov, grabbing a delicate-looking ceramic anaglyptic and breaking it over her knee for emphasis. “All we need is your permission, and an empty lot, and half-a-dozen bulldozers and steamrollers.”

    Conditional Acceptance

    “Or we could repurpose these items,” suggests your DIY-loving Uncle Sheldon, wearing a pair of dungarees he improvised from rubber bands and reclaimed umbrella fabric. “We can knock together all sorts of useful items if we put our minds to it: big paperweights, weights for the gym, weights to keep doors open, mobile phone cases... that weigh a lot. The choices are endless! Well, not exactly endless, but you know what I mean!”

    Conditional Acceptance

    If a proper vote fails to be made or for any reason there is no resolution to this matter, we shall appropriate funds to establish a new museum for our local artists, notice will be sent out to all entry submission addresses and a vote on the best entries will be sponsored for a world tour to which each artist may accompany their art pieces.

    All rights reserved including right to determine rights intent and outcome.

    TSP Foreign Office The South Pacific

    February 2019 Update

    New Delegate Elected
    By Ministry Member North Prarie

    On Friday, January 18th, Erinor (known offsite as Seraph), won the election for Delegate of the South Pacific by a 40 vote margin over a newer face on the political scene, Beepee. Erinor provided the South Pacific with great leadership in his first term, which took place from January to July of 2018, leading TSP to many advancements in areas such as communications, the World Assembly, and Delegate approachability, to levels unseen to that scale before. With the assistance of a strong WA Initiative effort and the support of our amazing allies, Erinor took the gameside delegacy of the South Pacific at major update on January 31st.

    Please congratulate and wish luck to our new Delegate!


    Amerion’s Assembly Account
    By Chair of the Assembly Amerion

    Chair of the South Pacific’s legislature, Amerion presents a few highlights of the numerous discussions currently ongoing in the Assembly.

    Minister presents embassy proposals to the Assembly

    The Minister of Foreign Affairs, His Llamalency, the Right Honourable Somyrion recently presented to the Assembly the Ministry's proposals for embassies with the Frozen Realm of Wintreath and the South Pacific.

    These proposals represent a shift in how foreign relations are conducted, with embassy requests having previously been under the exclusive purview of the Minister. In a statement before Legislators in the appropriately named Legislators Lounge, the Minister elaborated on his new approach, stating:

    'I dislike the fact that gameside embassies have been in the past treated as something like consulates, of no real consequence other than as a side order of a treaty or event, where the minister can just decide on them, even though they matter a lot more to gamesiders on the RMB. And they provide a handy half-step between a consulate and an alliance, so our FA outlook isn’t just that alliances are everything :P So by doing these discussions/advisory polls— not quite a single decision like a consulate but also not quite a vote like a treaty, I’m trying to push up the value of a gameside embassy.'

    Should these proposals garner support within the Assembly, the Minister intends to proceed with a gameside poll to establish whether to finalise the construction of embassies.

    What's in a Name?

    A debate is currently ongoing regarding a small change in the name of Election Commission used in legislation. The Commission was reduced from three members to the singular position of Election Commissioner. This came after multiple election cycles where only one Election Commissioner was present. However, with this change now comes a series of amendments to existing legislation revising the terminology used.

    These corrections are not without discussion. A Local Councillor (gameside government official), His Nocturnal Excellency, the Right Honourable Divine Owl questioned whether such changes were necessary. In response, the Right Honourable Chair, Amerion, stated:

    'Unfortunately, at the moment it is. However, an amendment proposed by Awe which, if passed, will allow the Chair to exercise discretion in correcting future errors of a similar sort should mean that amendments of this nature will no longer be necessary.'

    The Chair referenced an amendment proposed by Mr. Awe which would include changes to names of institutions and positions as part of the Chair's discretion. Under the Legislative Procedure Act, the Chair may correct typographical errors, grammatical errors, or formatting inconsistencies at any time, as long as these corrections do not alter the original intent of the law.

    These amendments are expected to come to a vote within the first ten days of February.

    Mass telegrams in the spotlight

    Mr. The Sakhalinsk Empire's proposal to restrict the use of mass telegrams in an election period has sparked considerable debate. Associate Justice, the Right Honourable Belschaft raised concerns about the increased regulations, noting:

    'I don’t think it’s appropriate to expand regulations on use of government communications via the RO function to cover private communications by individuals. You might find it objectionable to have people send mass TG’s during elections, but it is a legitimate form of free speech that anyone can access.'

    This issue brought up by multiple Legislators centred on the possibility that any private citizen could be charged under the existing framework should they send out mass telegrams. In following revisions, Mr. The Sakhalinsk Empire amended the language to reflect that such restrictions related only to the abuse of power by government officials.

    The amendment is expected to be voted on soon.


    Upcoming Elections
    By Minister of Foreign Affairs Somyrion

    With the South Pacific’s Delegate election and transition barely over, another series of elections is right around the corner. Beginning on February 1st, elections open for the four offices of the Cabinet, the South Pacific’s executive leaders: the Prime Minister and the Ministers of Regional, Military, and Foreign Affairs. A poll of the members of TSP’s Assembly carried out by the Chair a week ago, including a section asking respondents about whom they would like to see run in the Cabinet elections, has sparked thoughts about potential candidates, though no campaigns have yet been launched and potential candidates remain fairly muted. The Linkcomprehensive poll also included sections asking about the current Cabinet’s performance and approval of various other branches of the government and initiatives.

    Elections for the Local Council, TSP’s gameside governance body, will begin shortly after Cabinet elections conclude in late February.

    Feta Fun Facts!

    by Fetatonich

    Did you know...

    It is believed that the sheep's milk cheese that Polyphemus the Cyclops made in his caves in Homer's 'Odyssey' was most likely an early form of feta cheese.

    Feta is traditionally made of sheep's or goat's milk, though today large commercial producers often make it with cow's milk. The curdled milk (curdled with rennet) is separated and allowed to drain in a special mold or a cloth bag. It is cut into large slices (feta means 'slice') that are salted and then packed in barrels filled with whey or brine.

    Imported feta cheese is usually made with goat's or sheep's milk, as is the original Greek feta cheese.

    Most people that are allergic to cow milk products or who are lactose intolerant can use goat and sheep milk products. The lactose or protein in the milk is what usually causes the allergic reaction or intolerance. Goat & sheep milk both have lactose and protein but it is of a different make up that doesn't bother most people.

    The proteins in cow's milk are huge, fit for an animal that will one day weigh in over 500 lbs. The proteins in humans, sheep, and goats, are very short, which is why babies (the infirm, and arthritics) will often thrive on goat's milk, and raw goat's milk also is loaded with the enzymes that enable the metabolizing of the calcium.

    In Fetatonich, the goat is revered like that of the Hindu cow. The feta created from the goat's milk is believed to solve all your problems when you die!

    And finally, Feta cheese, when paired with wine of any kind, no matter how weak, will cure all your problems for however long you are drunk. The longer you are drunk, the longer your problems disappear, and if you are drunk enough and pass out for good, they go away permanently!

    East Lodge

    My NS Comrades,

    Although you have seen many dispatches about how people will be leaving NS, I will not be sad and dramatic. I am not leaving forever, just a haitus, for a little bit. Me and my puppets may CTE, but I will return, eventually...

    I feel trapped in a constant loop of having to come here everyday. A break is well deserved. I will not mention everyone from TSP, instead I will give a message to everyone; this dispatch is that message.

    "I'll be back!", as the terminator says, shall be what I say before I leave. Literally I will be a ginormous terminator robot as I walk into the figurative distance. I technically already am; I just haven't said it yet.

    And with that, dear Comrades, it is goodbye until season 2 comes out...

    Facts about Model T-84 aka East Lodge:


    1) T-84 is a custom built multipurpose serving android. It was built by Commander Xen's very own enginneer, Dr. Sil'leen.

    2) T-84 is able to switch conscienceness with other vessels, meaning it can get a new model for different uses.

    3) It was built with a mixture of melted titanium, tungsten, and indium. The metal was distributed into molds in a way T can technically weigh many tons, but can feel only one and a half.

    4) East Lodge usually is called a "her". But since her model can change at any time, she is technically an "it" following the rule of, "If it looks and sounds like a guy, it's a guy. Or vice versa.

    5) T-84 was coincidentally named with the same name as a Russin tank. This was a true coincidence and nothing more.

    6) East is powered using a hybrid battery made of polished uranium and electricty. The electricity helps the model stay up, but the uranium helps the software work. Alien technology truely is amazing.

    7) T-84 is not actually the 84th attempt on the model T. T-84 could be considered a name instead. Technically it is A-1, since Dr. Sil'leen worked so well on the very first model idea. And the first model had great use and integrity.

    8) One time while on Earth, T accidentally moved into a toaster and couldn't move or cry for help until T was eventually rescued.

    9) T's personality is completely based off how captive humans would act and what the aliens saw. This is why East can have a defended, snarky, and sometimes creepy attitude.

    Authoralism (belgh) and classicalism/old theory/the foundationalist (less belgh)

    I’m personally a firm believer that the capital A Author is dead.

    However I also think that each text should be looked at in its own light under the interpretation which either the reader gives it (for light reading), or under the interpretation which gives it the most meaningful meaning.

    Volaworand Erinor Tsunamy Beepee


    A number of drama llamas were killed as native nations loyal to Delegate-elect Erinor stormed the strategic
    Delegate Cabana. With several hours until the next WA update, they have begun fortifying their position with a
    massive street barricade.

    Erinor loyalists in The South Pacific have secured a major milestone to oust holdout Delegate Tsunamy from the Delegate Cabana, unnamed TSP sources say.

    Today the Erinor loyalists made significant gains against Tsunamy's forces. Erinor has continued to gain endorsements since winning the Delegate election 11 days ago, clinching victory in the key final round of delegate elections after a strong push by Beepee insurgents.

    During today's offensive, local citizen militia members used rocks, bottles and endorsements to break down the door of the Delegate Cabana and blockade the streets, military sources say.

    The capture of the cabana should give Erinor's forces the power of the TSP delegacy, assuming they can hold their position through tonight's update.

    This advance has reportedly forced Delegate Tsunamy to flee to the regional offsite forums.

    Why is there fighting in The South Pacific?

    The so called "t-rebels" known as tSP-ers, backed by forces loyal to the outgoing Delegate, took over parts of The South Pacific, and forced the government into a plebiside to determine the preferred regional capitalization convention: the South Pacific (tSP) or The South Pacific (TSP). Upper case T loyalists won the vote by almost two thirds of the electorate, but some t-rebels refused to acknowledge the vote and defiantly continued to not capitalize the T.

    The t-rebels accused the T loyalists of corruption and began to drown the region with hugs and floof roleplays. Forces loyal to the capitalized T began fighting back, leading to a shocking rise in RMB stabbings and robust demand for Revive-o-matic Services and Death Ray Guns.

    After the Delegate election 11 days ago lower case tSPer's ignored the vote and stubbornly refused to boost the endorsement count of the new Delegate-elect. Upper case TSPers rallied and sporadic fighting broke out on the RMB. As drama llama's rampaged the countryside a core group of peasant workers and student intellectual TSPers created a citizen militia movement under the banner of delegate-elect Erinor to put down the tSPer influence once and for all.

    As revolutionary fervor has gripped the region, numerous reworkings of musical numbers and disco classics have graced the RMB. Thankfully, rap battles have not gained any traction.

    This is a fluid situation, and we will provide breaking news as it develops.

    Volaworand Erinor Tsunamy Pencil Sharpeners 2 The Solar System Scope Beepee Roavin Aumeltopia


    Numerous nations have been butthurt and CTE'd corpses are strewn about the beach.

    TSP Delegate Tsunamy is refusing to step down despite the threat of military intervention.

    Erinor, who beat him in the January elections, was due to be inaugurated as the new delegate on Monday, but Tsunamy has ignored the deadline. Tsunamy is still desperately clinging to power and is holed up in the Delegate Cabaña. Delegate-elect Erinor has rallied The South Pacific Special Forces to his side and angry mobs of pitchfork and endorsement wielding natives are currently trying to ram down the door and forcibly remove Tsunamy from power. The latest reports are that only 5 endorsements remain barring the door of the cabaña.

    Why is Tsunamy refusing to leave office?

    Tsunamy initially announced he would not seek re-election and even publicly supported Erinor in the election but later he reversed his position and said he would not step down. He declared a 90-day state of emergency calling for "peace, law and order" after what he said were irregularities in the election process. He said that along with errors made by the electoral commission, some votes mysteriously disappeared.

    The commission later accepted that a small number of ballots had been eaten by TSP's abundant free-range drama llama's, but said this would not have affected Erinor's win. Tsunamy has said he will stay in office until new elections are held. Retaining power would also ensure he is not prosecuted in The South Pacific High Court for the criminal rise of "floofing" during his rule.


    There have been scattered reports of looting as riots spread throughout the region.

    Election Commissioner powerless to enforce a transfer of power.

    Election Commissioner Pencil Sharpeners 2 failed to break the deadlock at last-minute talks with Tsunamy.

    Pencil Sharpeners 2 flew in to the TSP offsite forums last Friday evening to meet Tsunamy before flying on to The Lampshade Bar and Grill RMB for further discussions with Erinor and Local Councilor The Solar System Scope. "I am now less pessimistic [that Tsunamy] will work on a peaceful solution that is in the best interest for everyone," The Solar System Scope said.

    What happens next?

    South Pacific Special Forces troops remain stationed at Versailles Isle, despite the deadline for Tsunamy to stand down passing at midnight. The threat of military action is supported by Erinor's defeated opponent Beepee and other states in the region. However, SPSF chief Roavin said his troops would not fight native forces should they enter into the region, according to TSP news reports.

    "We are not going to involve ourselves militarily, this is a political dispute," he said. "I am not going to involve my soldiers in a stupid fight. I love my troops."

    At least 2,600 South Pacificans, fearful that violence could erupt, flooded Europe's RMB this week seeking refuge. Meanwhile, thousands of Lazerene and Forestian tourists continue to be evacuated from the region on special charter flights. TSP is a popular beach destination among NationStates holidaymakers, especially in winter. Minister of Foreign Affairs Aumeltopia has reportedly been making the rounds reassuring allies that the situation is "under control" and "not a cause for alarm".

    Shipments of South Pacific Iced tea, or SPIT, have not yet been affected, but hoarding is becoming an issue as jittery nations prepare for the worst. Volaworand, co-chair of The South Pacific Joint Commission on SPIT, has appealed to all SPaRTA nations to increase production to avert a potential disastrous SPIT shortage.

    We will keep you updated on this dangerous situation.

    Armed Takeover of the NWB? Lady Sanae takes it too far once again.

    The Oceanograpther
    Harry Gunfish Angelspears

    This article has strong author opinion concerning the topic of discussion. The Oceanograpther is not responsible for any legal action regarding the opinions of this author.



    The state of the North Western Bank is still as bad as it was before Zander's Election.


    Lobster Town, North Western Bank: It is no surprise, given Sanae Bluegills obsession with 'reclaiming' the North Western Bank, that she has once again attempted to raise support from the Defense Forces concerning it. Two years ago, she attempted the same thing, only backing off after opposition leader Johnna Gilthead Breamson threatened revealing the HWM’s private tabs with her, which logical conclusion can discern that contain rather juicy details, considering Lady Sanae’s vehement unwillingness to share them with the general public.

    General Breamson Stonefins has been in the pocket of the HWM for years, and has already sent at least another company of "Peacekeeping" units into the Bank just two days after her request, and, just like last time, denied all correlation between him and the HWM, declaring that:

    "The Situation in the North Western Bank has deteriorated significantly, and due to a spike of violence yesterday that was perpetrated by hostiles that we believe to be affiliated with the Fugu Terrorist group, we took preliminary action, and reinforced our garrison in the Bank in order to prevent any more outbreaks of conflict; This reinforcement has nothing to do with the Water Minister's politics."

    While it is allegedly true that there was an attack on a WDF Garrision yesterday, the timing between the HWM's request and the General's mobilization is too much of a coincidence to ignore, not even regarding the similarities from the last time this happened.

    The HWM can deny the facts all she wants, but the truth is, is that this is the second time that she's sent troops into the Bank for no reason whatsoever. As we all know, The Bank is legally an independent terrority that, under international law, is protected from any external influence, even from Waterwise, And yet, the HWM has taken her own personal interest in the Bank, and even claiming that the Bank belongs to Waterwise on multiple occasions!

    Of course, the International community is quite miffed with her claims, and recently before this new incident has stepped down on most of her claims on the bank; But I gander since the gradual increase in Waterwise's international influence and since our inception into the World Assembly, she has decided to try her luck once again; And God knows she thinks she has a lot of it.

    I'd reckon that in a couple of days, the controversy surrounding this incident will skyrocket and the HWM will be forced to come out of her residence to address the nation concerning it. Then, she will go on another 'innocence' spiel saying that she only ever wanted to help the people of the Bank by, of course, Military action, which then is interrupted by the Opposition Leader threatening to reveal her sex tapes or whatever the hell those secret emails are.

    This repeated cycle of violent action followed by fake public sulking is despicable at this point, and I feel that the HWM should just own up to her mistakes at this point and simply face the consequences to her actions; Any further denial to her blatant non-sensical selfish desire for the Bank is only going to hurt us all down the road.

    Title: “Lilith”

    Threat level: Level 12 (Maximum)

    Species: Nyx Bloodline (Referred to by the sisters as an impurity as they claim she is not a pure member of their bloodline.)

    Description: Lilith is a humanoid with an appearance of a young woman. It is difficult to tell which physical feature is actually part of her natural physical form. She can change her hair and eye color as well as her body’s shape, it is believed she does this to manipulate people by turning into what they most desire or to spy on others. She has also shown a full mastery of magic learning extremely complex spells but her mastery of Nyx family magic and special abilities have baffled many including members of the family with Luna Nyx noting that some of her abilities take hundreds of years to master.

    Security Measures: Enchanted rounds are to be used against Lilith but every time she is spotted Nova and Luna Nyx are to be taken to her location to attack her and all forces and civilians are to move to a one mile minimum safe distance to prevent collateral damage.

    Incarceration status: She’s currently been captured once but only for a brief moment before she completely destroyed the facility holding her. It is thought that she was allowing herself to be caught so she could find the holding facility and destroy it, her reason for doing this is unknown.

    Notes: Three images of Lilith have all been placed on her file, this was done due to the simple fact that she can change her appearance. The three images below are what appear to be her favorites that she uses more than the others. The first one is the appearance of a young woman, it’s believed she uses this one to blend in with human society. Her second appearance is that of an extremely attractive young woman, she uses this appearance and a shy attitude to lore in unsuspecting victims for her sadistic pleasures. Her third appearance is what is known as her aggressive look, she only takes on this appearance when she is fighting or attacking someone, some scientist believe this might be her true form.

    Nexonian states

    Flora and Fauna

    by Nexonian states

    The Subcon River is the biggest stream in Nexonia. On its southern bank are Castelreagh, Xahlwu'tek, Mouryo and Klepali states, including the Camazonia jungle wilderness. The furthest east we move towards the eastern seaboard the greater the humidity and tropical climate, however, this is very different compared with the Seist Desert and the Shervinaya Plateaux which lie south of Klepali and Camazonia. The northern bank of the Subcon belongs to Troikaya; Troikayan climate is higher in altitude and a is far more temporate and chillier in contrast to the southern bank.

    Camazonia is east-most and east of Klepali. Klepali, once originally thought to be a Mediterranean paradise when settled on originally in 1982 has now become a sub-tropical semi-swamp especially in its eastern counties. Mushroom Co. is almost entirely overrun by Camazonia's vegetation. A jungle is creeping its way across Klepali at a worrying speed and one of the Klepalian State Legion's occupations is beating back the zealous fauna. Klepalian leader, Alyssa Tempest has declared Camazonian jungle expansion a threat to the Klepalian way of life and labelled it a threat nearly as much as foreign invasion. Top scientists like Rabyte Shervin and Yensi Gorma have confirmed the nexonium is to blame.

    Consequently, the wildlife has evolved.

    Gators are a related to Alligators but are smaller, more vicious and easier to kill than their bigger, slower and more armoured counterparts. Gators have evolved to be more manoeuvrable, like the jungle as they make their new homes in the bayous of Klepali. They are the reason why so many people every year get severely injured or killed in the Klepali swamps, most happening at night.

    Starmans/starmen are like the starfishes found like most on Earth; they have five limbs and come in a variety of colours. What is unique about the starman is its bizarre tendency to absorb nexonium causing them to shine like light bulbs so bright, it would in fact hurt your eyes to look at them too long. They also frequently change colours even as they are submerged underwater. They can even stand up on two legs and walk around although this is not a frequent habit, children adore them for this reason. Unfortunately, they are so nexonium contanimated, they are a radiation hazard, even to the citizens of the confederation and other flora and fauna. Even to natives who have been born into and grown up all their lives with the nexonium, contact with starmen is best avoided.

    Subject #: 7866
    Title: “The Immortal” or “The Void”

    Threat level: Level 12 (Maximum)

    Species: Human? (Some of her abilities suggest she might be more than human)

    Description: The Immortal/Void is a female with long black hair, black eyes, and a muscular frame. She has left many of our best scientists baffled as she is a physical wonder with no sicknesses present, no scarring, no deterioration of any kind, no aging, and incredible durability. No weapons have been able to injure her let alone kill her, a kinetic rod was shot at her and she didn’t even attempt to block it, it caused no damage and didn’t even appear to faze her. Her combat capabilities continue to baffle anyone who views them, she is an expert with any weapon although she prefers to stay away from firearms, her hand to hand combat is unmatched, she seems to be a master strategist with an incredibly high IQ, and has mastered multiple forms of magic although her true extent of abilities in this field is unknown.

    Security Measures: Any forces near her are to immediately retreat, do not attempt to fight her!

    Incarceration status: This has not even come under consideration.

    Notes: Despite her aggressive nature she will not attack unarmed civilians, it’s believed that she finds this dishonorable. She has been noted as having conversations with intellectuals as well as military leaders, sadly military leaders are usually killed after the conversations but the intellectuals are allowed to live and they claim that she does not see herself as the villain but as a savior, she claims that she came to our reality to make us stronger. This has led to the theory that she is from an alternate universe and has led to many other theories as to what happened in her universe to force her to become the person she is, further investigations are ongoing.

    The ColdWyvernian Undead Volaworand Auphelia

    Last week Volaworand's two largest cities were reduced to rubble fallowing the breakout of Puddles the Puppy from the Royal National Zoological Park of Volaworand or the RNZP. Immediately fallowing Auphelia organized a Charity concert to raised funds for the effected nation. In response to that Leth Beatha bought a ticket and advertised the event across ColdWyvern, and just today has started rapidly moving the government toward providing support for Volaworand. "I was there when the cities were destroyed" say President Leth,"puddles was an absolute nightmare, providing aid for our neighbors and fellow SPaRTA member in need is the least we can do" In response the legislative branched decided to give Volaworand any resources our county has to help with the rebuild effort. all military air fields are preparing to transport goods and civilian runways have been contracted for addition help in this effort.

    Russian grand imperial empire Le Front de Liberation du Midand Aidenfieeld Beepee Kerlodia

    The Russian grand imperial empire's oil pipelines are a soft target for FLM attacks


    Both members of the beleaguered Russian army had to catch a taxi to a massive oil pipeline fire after over 50 FLM attacks in weekend campaign that raised fears the conflict will collapse Moscow's precarious economy.

    Deep craters pockmark the landscape south of the Russian capital of Moscow in a Y-shaped pattern straddling the pipeline.

    One attack left two bright yellow smiley faces, less than 100 meters apart, near a pressure vent on the pipeline. Shrapnel of military munitions litters the area.

    There was extensive damage to the pipeline. Local Officials are preventing anyone venturing on to the site. Flames are visible for miles around.

    Local police recorded 51 strikes. "I have no doubt they wanted to target the pipeline, there is nothing else here," said Giorgi Abrahamisvili, a policeman who witnessed the attack.

    "It was terribly intense, the smell of markers spread everywhere. I had to abandon my car and hide in a ditch but these Le Front de Liberation du Midand terrorists weren't interested in other targets. They ran straight up to the pipeline and started to deface it with sharpies and spray paint. It was so terrifying. I shouted for them to stop and they just turned a gestured rudely to me. That's when I started to shoot at them... I'm pretty sure when my bullets hit the pipeline and caused the explosion they were killed. Well, either that or when our military started dropping bombs over the pipelines... that probably got any strays that I missed."

    "Due to the extensive graffiti attacks and damages caused by our police and military bombing response, the pipelines are not running at any capacity." a spokesman said. "It may be several months before we can resume normal operations."

    The Kremlin uses gas exports to prop up its failing economy and as a tool of foreign policy.

    Reduced exports to The South Pacific may force RUSSIAN GRAND IMPERIAL EMPIRE's to curtail its hostile ambitions.

    Georgian politicians accused Russia of faking the FLM attacks, which Moscow has portrayed as committed by small bands of beleaguered renegades, to achieve wider strategic goals.

    "They need control of energy routes," the Georgian president, Mikhail Saakashvili said. "They need sea ports. They need transportation infrastructure. And primarily, they need money. This will be the first step in nationalizing and militarizing the pipelines. Mark my words: They blew up the pipelines on their own! "

    Russia's attacks on Aidenfieeld, Beepee, and Kerlodia provoked a mixture of disgust and anger among South Pacificans, who see Russian grand imperial empire at war with the region as a whole.

    "Churchill should never have helped these Soviet man-babies," said a local police chief. "I am not a Nazi but RUSSIAN GRAND IMPERIAL EMPIRE is becoming a curse in The South Pacific region."

    Ray Catalog Issue 15

    The Ray Catalog

    I have sold many rays to many mobsters; but today I'd like to show my most popular rays.

    Here is my #3 best sold ray. This one flies off the shelves.

    The Potato Ray

    This ray looks mundane and useless, but I assure you it's not. The Potato Ray is capable of turning someone either to a spudsy potato, or to their regular selves.

    This ray is great for containing uncontrollable ones who need extra reenforcement. This ray is usually $3000, but this month only they will be $1000. That's one amazing deal.

    The Reviv-o-matic

    This ray can revive those who have died, no matter what they are. I live in an area full of diverse life. Let me tell you, everyone of those diverse people can be revived with this ray. The reviv-o-matic is such a productive and practical ray, and it's only $900 for the next 2 weeks!

    Finally... the #1 ray gun...
    The Animal ray.

    You can see my client took the time to take a lovely picture for me, and he truely uses it well. The Animal ray, in short, turns anything into an animal, then back again.

    This ray is the most popular ray I have ever sold. It flies off the shelves faster than I can build them.

    I've lowered the price from $500, very cheap, to $200, even cheaper! What a lovely deal for something you'll need in daily life. Ever wanted a pet? You can have a pet now! You could even be the pet if you wanted. You can become a dog, the most popular setting.

    And to think it's only $200.

    Constitutional Referendum is Now At Vote!

    Today, after much bureaucratic bickering, the constitutional referendum jointly written by President Son Ryo-Gan and Premier Shen Liuxian is at vote by the populace. In the reform, the Premier is now appointed by the President, while the Speaker of the House is voted upon internally by the Legislative Yuan. Members of the military also can no longer be politicians at the same time, though this does not apply retroactively as to not disturb the Executive Yuan's plans.

    The Sambhota Coup Fails!

    On 2 September, General Jungney Sambhota's government - which had ousted Nyandak Nyima the day prior - was counter-couped by Nyima and her loyalists. However, the damage had already been done, and numerous high-ranking government officials fled back to UCR-controlled Tibet. The financial crisis continues, with 1 USD now equaling a thousand srang, which only continues to inflate in value.

    September 1, '29
    Troubles, Part III

    Yesterday, President of Tibet Nyandak Nyima has been ousted by her own General, Jungney Sambhota, for her "irresponsible handling of the economic crisis". By then 1 USD had been equal to 900 srang, and protests against the corporations' boycott continued to grow. The fate of Tibet is unknown, though there are calls from within their government to return to the UCR.

    Numerous Politicians Ousted!

    Just three days after UA 27 was passed, numerous politicians were found guilty of extortion, which is considered a Treasonous Crime under UA 26. One of those found guilty is Representative of Gansu-3 Pan Jingyi, of the Democracy Party, who had reportedly taken over ¥32 million ($1 million) in bribes from corporations; she was immediately relieved of her position and replaced by New Kuomintang member Ren Tian. Her trial is due on 15 September.

    Another guilty politician is Representative of Hunan-4 Zhuan Shun, a member of the New Kuomintang, who took ¥10 million ($312,500) from the Democracy Party in order to vote against laws by his own party. He was also ousted and replaced by Sun Xinyue, also from the NKMT, and his trial is due on 20 September; Matthew Shaw, the leader of the Democracy Party, is currently under investigation for supposedly being in on the corruption.

    August 25, '29
    Treasonous Crimes and Political Donations Prohibition

    On the 21st, Representative of Jiangsu-5 Quan Zhong (New Kuomintang) proposed the Treasonous Crimes Act, which would remove the crime of treason and instead classified a number of crimes as treasonous crimes, with the maximum penalty of execution, though that it would require unanimous support from the Supreme Court and the Minister of Justice to be carried out. It passed on the 23rd with a vote of 97 - 78 - 0.

    That same day, Representative of Heilongjiang-3 Dai Luoyang (Communist) proposed the Political Donations Prohibition Act, which would outlaw any kind of political donation from any source to politicians except during campaigns, and even then would be monitored by a government oversight committee. It was heavily unpopular with the Democracy Party, leading many to believe that corruption was ongoing, but the law passed with a close 90 - 85 - 0.

    August 21, '29
    Tibetan Economic Collapse!

    Just a few days after Nyandak Nyima declared the Free State of Tibet independent from the UCR, the Tibetan economy has spiraled out of control. The reason for this is because the proclaimed currency of Tibet, the srang, was boycotted by numerous companies since it is not registered into the Nikkei and thus cannot be traded with other countries. The srang's value inflated from the planned 10 srang per USD to over 300 srang.

    Local officials have threatened their resignation already if Nyima would not solve the situation; one, who wishes to remain anonymous, said that "A crisis would have happened in Turkestan (Xinjiang) if they'd also declared independence, so learn from our mistakes." President Son Ryo-Gan said that "I extend my best wishes to the Tibetan people, and hope that they rejoin so that we can once more stand united."

    August 17, '29
    Troubles, Part II

    Former Governor of Tibet Nyandak Nyima, after being dismissed as Governor, said that "I will still fight for the independence of Tibet, no matter what happens to me" and has held an illegal independence referendum; practically all voters voted in favor of independence. The Free State of Tibet has thus been formed with Nyima as its president and its temporaru capital in Ngari.

    President Son Ryo-Gan, having received heavy criticism from Executive Order No. 1, has refused to talk about the situation "for the meantime." Meanwhile, Premier Shen Liuxian has threatened "I am ready to deploy patrols in Xizang (the former official Chinese name for Tibet) in order to maintain the security of the nation." In opposition, Governor of Chonqing and Chairman of the Democracy Party Matthew Shaw said that "This is the collapse of the truly dictatorial New Kuomintang."

    August 12, '29
    Troubles in Tibet

    Despite the Minorities Act having already stopped most of the unrest, the Tibetan Independence Movement is still going strong, with many people saying that this threatens the security of the nation. After a government-mandated online poll, President Son Ryo-Gan issued Executive Order No. 1, which officially dismisses Nyandak Nyima as Governor of Tibet after her speech on the 5th, stating that it incorporated treason. (Executive Orders are very powerful in the UCR and require a public vote in order to be passed.) "It truly saddens me to dismiss a member of my own government, but the country takes priority over selfish needs," he said in a speech.

    The current Constitution says that a member of the government who loses their position before half of their term is completed must have their position appointed by the next higher position. Since the next gubernatorial election is on 2034, and since the next higher position after Governor is the President, this means that it is President Son's responsibility to appoint Nyima's successor.

    BREAKING: As we were writing this, President Son Ryo-Gan announced that Xiao Xinyi, a member of the New Kuomintang would be appointed. He also announced that while Nyandak Nyima would not be able to run for Governor in the next election, she would be allowed to run for other positions, and that she would not be charged with any crimes.

    A Climatic Emergency

    On the 5th, the government of United Europe-Eurasia announced a diplomatic meeting between numerous government leaders over rising temperatures and sea levels. Because of this, the Legislative Yuan has been buzzing over possible climate laws, but the most successful one was proposed by Representative of Qinghai-4 Tian Yazhu (Democracy) on the 6th. The Regulation of Packaging Act would prohibit the use of styrofoam and styrophor nationwide, as well as ban the use of plastic bags for "dry goods" i.e. non-food items. It was voted upon today and passed with a vote of 114 - 61 - 0.

    August 5, '29
    The Government's Response

    In response to the Xinjiang and Tibetan independence movements, Representative of Shanxi-2 Zhu Zexi (New Kuomintang) has proposed a Repeal of the Minority Cultures Act back on the 1st. Voted upon the next day, it passed in a clear political line: 130 - 45 - 0.

    In its place did Speaker Shao Hanying propose the Minorities Act on the 3rd, which would give the state more power over the minority cultures in comparison to the Minority Cultures Act. Voted upon on the same day, it passed 121 - 54 - 0.

    As a result, Akmetzhan Narimanev resigned as President of the East Turkestan Independence Association, informally known as the East Turkestan Government. Nyandak Nyima said she will not step down as Governor of Tibet, but rather that she will "fight against this law as to ends of my ability."

    July 30, '29
    Ethnic Tensions

    Union Act No. 18, the Minority Cultures Act, was accused by the New Kuomintang of being a ploy to destabilize the country. While the Democracy Party has fervently denied this, it has indeed caused tensions to rise in the minority provinces of Xinjiang and Tibet, where independence movements are rising. The East Turkestan Independence Movement, led by Akmetzhan Narimanev, is picking up speed in Urumqi, and they are set to deliver an independence referendum by autumn. Meanwhile, the Tibetan Independence Movement, led by Governor of Tibet Nyandak Nyima, is also very popular and may send a referendum around the same time frame.

    President Son Ryo-Gan, who is strongly in favor of a single united China, says that "We must act as one nation and not let our differences get in the way of progress." Premier Shen Liuxian, who is also the Field Marshal, says that "I am considering a military intervention to stop this crisis from starting." Speaker Shao Hanying has quipped "I do not think that this is the end of China; I think this is the end of those independence movements."

    July 24, '29
    Banks and Welfare

    Speaker Shao Hanying's Government Control on Banks Act was later revised to become the Fiscal Regulations Act and was passed today with a vote of 105 - 70 - 0. This act not only allows the government to control banks' interest rates, it also allows for the control of reserves and bond prices. While banks across the nation are attempting to boycott the law, as newly passed laws immediately go into effect, the boycotts simply have no effect.

    Meanwhile, Representative of Taiwan-4 Song Xue (New Kuomintang) drafted on the 22nd the Welfare Act, which officially establishes a welfare system for all citizens. It passed today with an outstanding 164 - 11 - 0.

    July 18, '29
    A New Currency?

    With the United Chinese Republic having signed and ratified the East Asian Economic Accord proposed by Hanguk-Nippon, which seeks to establish a common currency between all signatories known as the East Asian Dollar, heavy debate has risen across the nation.

    The divisions are nowhere along political lines; Representative of Chongqing-3 Tai Hai, a member of the Democracy Party, says that "A new currency would lead to free trade and economic stimulation", while Representative of Gansu-3 Pan Jingyi - also part of the Democracy Party - says that "The Chinese Yuan would spiral into inflation and lead to the destruction of the economy." President Son Ryo-Gan, who ratified the treaty, says "A common market would lead to the prosperity of all citizens of all nations," while Minister of the Interior Xian Guiying says that "Our own country takes priority over others, thus this treaty shouldn't have been signed in the first place."

    July 15, '29
    Economic Reforms

    After much debate over 5 days, Representative of Hong Kong-3 La Shu-Ren (New Kuomintang) successfully passed the Coins and Banknotes Act with a vote of 112 - 63 - 0. This act officially abolishes the jiao and the 20-yuan banknote, as well as converting the 50-yuan banknote into a coin. It also establishes the standards for the designs of both the coins and the banknotes, and establishes the crime of currency defamation.

    Meanwhile, Speaker Shao Hanying has submitted the Government Control on Banks Act, which would give the government more control over banks and their interest rates (among other things). He said "While I doubt any further laws would restore the currency to its old exchange rate, these would control any further inflation and regulate prices, so that everyone can be able to afford anything."

    July 12, '29
    More Executive Yuan News

    Today, Premier Shen Liuxian announced the creation of the Ministry of Labor and Industry, which would oversee employment, labor standards, and industrial growth, as well as the Ministry of Public Transportation, which would oversee the trains, buses, airplanes, and other modes of transportation within the nation. He also announced the National Freeways Commission would be moved to the Ministry of Public Transportation.

    Premier Shen also announced that while he did draft part of the 2029 Constitutional Amendment, he "was not involved in the section regarding military officials," and had sent a recommendation to President Son Ryo-Gan to change it.

    July 9, '29
    We Have Come to Bargain

    After growing threats from United Europe-Eurasia to stop trade, President Son Ryo-Gan has announced that he is offering a compromise with the UEE in order to avert war. "I indeed want the best for our nation, and I still believe that the UEE has disrespected our sovereignty. But I do not want war. Cooperation will be the only way that world peace will be retained."

    The compromise states that the UCR will either get Chongqing and Shanghai fully, or the entirety of Primorsky Krai including Vladivostok (Haishenwai). In exchange, the UCR will revoke any further claims on the UEE's territory, excluding the territory we did not get in this compromise.

    Despite expecting outrage from the people due to this anti-nationalist decision, praise for the president came saying that he has averted a possible war, especially after the death toll of the South Caleblanian Civil War.

    July 6, '29
    Constitutional Referendum

    Today, President Son Ryo-Gan announced that he, along with Premier Shen Liuxian and former Speaker of the House Huo Wuhan, have sent out an amendment to the UCR Constitution. One of its major changes is that the Premiership and the Speakership are no longer elected positions; the Premier is now appointed by the President, and the Speaker is elected by the Legislative Yuan/House of Representatives. Another change is that the Speaker and President can now veto laws, but that it can be overturned by the house. Lastly - the most popular of the changes - current military officials can no longer hold political positions.

    People's reactions were mixed, with some saying that this was a plot to give the government supreme power over the people, as it was not announced until now. Others say that the amendment would streamline the government and reduce unnecessary bureaucracy. Lastly, Speaker Shao Hanying has said "I am pleased with this decision, as this will allow government processes to be done more easily." The public referendum for the amendment will be held on 1 August.

    July 4, '29
    Mmoremoreore Laws

    Representative of Xinjiang-2 Duan Huo (Democracy) proposed the Minority Cultures Act on the 2nd, which would give special status to the Turks, Tibetans, Mongolians, Manchurians, and Koreans within the nation. It passed today with a 101 - 74 - 0 (note the extra 5 from Xing'an). Duan herself commented on the amount of people against the proposal, saying that "the other parties vote against anyone against their party, even if it goes with their beliefs."

    Speaker Shao Hanying (Communist) proposed the Penal Productivity Act on the 3rd, which would allow prisoners to shorten their sentence by allowing them to do work such as construction and farming; it also creates a Penal Education System which gives prisoners education. It passed with a 123 - 52 - 0.
