What perks are you offering? What attractions does your region hold? How's the standard of living, proximity to schools, regional policies on nudity, regulations over chicken ownership, tax code, rules about camping on public property?

Do I tip and how much?

Will I be expected to dance? Sing?

Do you allow small children? Will I be compelled to be in the proximity of these small children? How does your region feel about infanticide? Are there regions with which you do not share an extradition treaty?

Is there adequate parking? Indoor plumbing? Hookers?

Will I be required to wear a tie? Pants? A pretty hat?

I have so many questions.

Dearest faithful friends, allies, and dedicated French fry enthusiasts,

Okay. This. Is. Epic.

Our quest to determine the greatest style of French fry has reached its final stage. 10 fries entered. Only one will remain.

The two semi-final champions who will fight for the title of 🍟🏆WINNER OF THE FRENCH FRY SMACKDOWN🏆🍟 are the two following styles:



Conservative or liberal, socialist or capitalist, democracy or dictatorship, raider or defender, no matter the background, we can agree to put aside our differences in favor of this greater good.

Vote here by clicking the link below:

--> page=poll/p=125855 <--

And share it with your friends and family:

In the audition round, 260 people from across NationStates chose the top 4 styles of French fries, which made it to the semi-final round. We surpassed that in the semi-final round, where 524 cast their vote for the top of the top four. Now the top two remain.

Thank you very much and may the best fry win!

Hello there! Tetros Legionaries- Diplomacy Minister Of Perifania here.

You currently have an embassy with Perifania, and under the previous Diplomacy Minister, they were not all maintained.

I plan to bring you weekly updates on how the region is getting along, just to keep you in the loop and hopefully bring us closer as diplomatic partners.

With that said- are there any questions you have about Perifania that I can answer?

What's The Confederation of The Rhine?

Careless Baggage Handlers wrote:Raises his hand

What's The Confederation of The Rhine?

A makeshift alliance binding regions, often with Westphalian descent, into a contractual obligation to defend eachother in times of need.

Or, in shorter terms, a giant waste of time.

Any other questions?

Tetros Legionaries wrote:Any other questions?

Nope, I'm good.

*Hands them a map of the transit system and a complimentary book of ride coupons*

Thank you for choosing surface mass transit for your travel needs.

I would like to thank you for having an embassy with The Democratic Republic! I wish your region all the best!

We need to get an Sbarro or something for the bus depot. Could use a slice.
