I am new to the card system! My god I missed the launched 2 years ago :(

"Homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, a recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, and the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment"

Sounds good :D

Congratulations to Prexico! Prexico is this week's Viking Art Rewards winner and has been gifted the Legendary card Hesperonis.

To make sure your nation has a chance of winning a Legendary card, please take the following steps:

1. Join the World Assembly with your Balder nation if you are not already a member.

As long as the World Assembly opposes truly free trade I am not going to join but damm that Legendary Card is tempting

If you love ignorance, endorse me :)

Greetings everyone!

There is a new vote in the Security Council:

Resolution at Vote: Commend 00000 A World Power
Vote Recommendation: Against

If you are a WA member, make sure to vote so that you have your voice heard!

Additionally, please consider endorsing Delegate North East Somerset, if you have not already done so. The more endorsements, the more votes Balder has, and the stronger our voice in the World Assembly is!

If you have any additional questions, feel free to send me a telegram!

If you are worried about it conflicting with your stats, you can always make another nation and have that one join the World Assembly instead. As long as you only have one nation in the WA, you won't be breaking any rules!
