The Orcuan Weekly:

This Week’s Advice From Orcuo:

Ever find yourself behind on the output of goods? Need some way to increase worker productivity while still getting past those pesky international human rights treaties? Well now there is a solution! A simple technique called the “Labor Division Rivalry System” allows for just that! All you have to do is the following: split the given workforce into multiple teams; have these teams compete against each other; the team that produces the most goods gets rewarded (food, extra break time, etc) while the other losing teams gets punished (extra work, decrease of break time, etc). This will push your employees to work harder than ever! Ensuring you are getting the most out of your workforce! Now some people in your workforce may not like this new policy, and may try to rebel, slack off, or unionize. But don’t worry! We’ve already thought of a solution for this hypothetical dilemma. If one or more employees try to fight back, punish their entire team. As the old saying goes, “one bad apple spoils the rest”; in our case, one unionized employee gets the rest fired. Using this strategy will quickly convince any traitors to reconsider betraying your work enterprise. “But wait!”, you might say. “What if an entire team rebels?”. Well in that case, it might be time to ‘terminate’ their work contract. Our top researchers recommend flamethrowers to ‘burn the contract’. Quick and effective! This has been Orcuo with this week’s helpful advice!

Hang on…

…since when have we been able to put tables in RMB posts?!

On another note, Orcuo, that quote of yours bears a suspicious resemblance to the definition of a certain German word that isn't easily translatable into English… :P

Yup no doubt glad to be back.

The Party congratulates all workers of the world with the International Day of Labor Solidarity!

Class struggle has been going on since the first human enslaved another of his kin, and shows no signs of ending soon. The labor movement is what guaranteed the workers many things we take for granted: an 8-hour work day, weekends, paid vacations, maternity leave, prohibition of child labor, reading the full list would exhaust anyone. All of this was achieved through blood. The ruling classes have no interest in relaxing exploitation, all they need is profit.

Thus, Russian workers revolted in 1917, violently breaking down the oppressive regime. Newly established government under Lenin has installed world's best labor protections, and Western bourgeoisie, terrified of sharing the fate of the Romanov family, granted their workers some concessions, among which were the aforementioned rights.

Today, those rights are being slowly but surely retracted: in the USA, 13 states are seeking to weaken child labor laws, and so-called "platform work", which lets the capitalists completely evade any responsibility, is on the rise globally. This is, again, a product of class struggle, and the oppressors are winning.

To change this, we must follow Lenin's call: Workers of the world, unite! Only in solidarity, can the working class put up a fight to protect all what lives were sacrificed for.

This Week’s Advice From Orcuo:

Most entrepreneurs start out small. From a local grocery store or a town bound wholesales company, businesses begin at the bottom. But just because you start low doesn’t mean your profits have to be low. There is one industry that will guarantee that you make your investment back in no time flat! That industry is… charity fraud! It is very simply: first choose a cause to support, this can be anything from helping local firefighters to helping cancer-riddled children; next you raise funds with the claim that they’ll go towards helping your target group, you can do this by direct donations or creating consumer products that will go towards the fundraising; give 40% of your profits towards the group you were suppose to be helping, while also giving another 10% to the head(s) of that group to be silent on the matter; and presto! You’re a millionaire! And you are worshipped by the public as a hero! Now, if things were to ever break down and people were to find out about your little scheme, plausible deniability is always bound to come in handy. You may also want to consider fleeing the country if things get a little too heated. So what are you waiting for my fellow entrepreneurs! Get out there and make some money!

Hello everyone!
The New Thaitiucan Parliament has been dissolved, so new elections are being held. You are invited to vote at the following address:
https://strawpoll.com/2ayLQJwlWn4
Here is the dispatch explaining everything:

On Thursday, June the 6th 2024, president Max Chaos dissolved the New Thaitiucan Parliament, claiming that he couldn't work any more with this kind of parliamentary representation. New elections are thus being held until the 8th of June in the afternoon, to elect a new Parliament.
Max Chaos is gambling and hoping that the favorable economic situation and good opinion of him will grant him a new majority. Parliament was indeed mostly governed by the coalition formed by Unity for Progress, the Regional Empowerment Alliance and the Heritage for Stability Party. Our president often had difficulties passing legislation.

This is the current situation (Parliament has 400 seats):
- Unity for Progress: 122 seats
- People's Freedom Collective: 89 seats
- Regional Empowerment Alliance: 67 seats
- Communist Party: 67 seats
- Visionary Dominion Party: 22 seats
- Heritage and Stability Party: 22 seats
- National Defense Coalition: 11 seats

Here is the list of the parties seeking to conquer seats in Parliament:

The current president's party is seeking to conquer a larger majority, to be able to pass their own legislation. Before the last elections, Max Chaos was seen as a rather radical candidate, but his term as president seems to have softened him. He does still believe in giving greater authority to Parliament, as a milestone on the way to direct democracy. At the core of their platform is a commitment to transparency and inclusivity, as well as a fight against corruption. Civil rights are also very important. Max Chaos is making it quite clear that the economy has bloomed under his term, and the nation of New Thaitiuca is more developed and happy than ever.

This party led the governing coalition over the last six months, and is a liberal, dynamic and progressive party. Their program for the parliamentary elections emphasizes liberal values, focusing on individual freedoms, economic innovation, and social equality. Unity for Progress advocates for robust legal frameworks to safeguard freedom of speech, privacy, and individual autonomy. James Foster, a former president, declared that he hopes to show the New Thaitiucan people that they are reliable and will continue to serve them in Parliament. According to him, the governing coalition is ready to stay together to ensure a majority in Parliament.

Isabella Rivers and the Regional Empowerment Alliance are entering the parliamentary elections of New Thaitiuca with a visionary agenda centered on decentralization, local governance, and community empowerment. Their role in the governing coalition was to help pass a devolution law.

A slightly conservative party that is firmly rooted in preserving the nation’s rich traditions while promoting stability and pragmatic governance. Their program includes measures to uphold their cultural heritage, support family values, and ensure a gradual approach to social change. They aim to strike a balance between progress and tradition, advocating for a steady and cautious approach to policy-making. New Thaitiuca should also open up to its close neighbours for trade agreements, instead of working with the broader international community.

This former military general is back for his second parliamentary campaign, leading a coalition of small, rightwing parties with a focus on national security and defense. They advocate for higher military spending, a robust, self-reliant economy and more patriotism.

This is the first time this party is running in a national election. Although it is considered as a rightwing party, its leader Jordan James, has shown clear disdain of the National Defense Coalition. They consider that national security can only be achieved by making border control stricter and make citizenship harder to acquire for immigrants.

The communist party of New Thaitiuca seeks to create a classless society, by redistributing wealth and redefining the economy. In practical terms, they would want to nationalize key industries and ressources, focus on agriculture and provide universal access to essential services.

As citizens of New Thaitiuca, you may vote in these elections at the following link: Link Vote here!. It only takes a few seconds. You have two days to get your vote in.

Monday, June the 10th, 2024
Election results have come through (Parliament has 400 seats):
- Unity for Progress: 25% --> 100 seats (- 22 seats *)
- People's Freedom Collective: 22.73% --> 91 seats (+ 2 seats)
- Regional Empowerment Alliance: 22.73% --> 91 seats (+24)
- Communist Party: 18.18% --> 67 seats (+ 6)
- National Reunion: 4.55% --> 18 seats
- Heritage and Stability Party: 2.27% --> 9 seats (- 13)
- National Defense Coalition: 2.27% --> 9 seats (- 2)
- Others: 2.27% --> 9 seats
* compared to the previous legislature

This seems to be a complicated situation, since the previous governing coalition (Unity for Progress + Regional Empowerment Alliance + Heritage and Stability) only holds 200 seats in the new Parliament, falling just short of an absolute majority. Unity for Progress suffered quite a lot, losing more than 5% of all votes, and Heritage and Stability also lost several seats. Thankfully for them, the Regional Empowerment Alliance gained 24 seats, preventing an absolute disaster. A four-party coalition seems unlikely even in normal times, and no other small party shares their ideals. A two-party coalition is equally impossible, the most seats it could muster would be 191.
The most probable solution seems to be a three-party coalition in between the top three parties, enabling them to hold 281 seats. However, they disagree on many key issues, so who knows what the future holds for us?

You have two days, it would help me a lot if you did vote!
Thank you!

It's that time of year again — time to break out the ol' Pride/anniversary combo flag, that is! The rainbow stripes on either side of the flag reflect My Nation's support for the LGBTQ+ community. The colours, as seen in the familiar six-striped Pride flag, represent the diversity of sexuality and gender that characterizes human life. The golden maple leaf in the middle of the flag is symbolic of My Nation's anniversary, which falls on June 9. This year, the nation marks its sixth anniversary. June is a joyous time in My Nation as its people gather to celebrate love in all its forms: love of oneself, love of other people, love of one's country, and love of life in general. Happy Pride Month!

Have to say June hasn't been bad. Also best part it's not sweltering hot where I am like last year! Not a bad time at all
