10,994 km under the sea an ancient technologically advanced civilization exists, born from the survivors of a sunken Atlantis. 🦁

In their quest to see humanity ascend to a higher plane of existence, to live eternally, via science, Trenchians took on the responsibility to better the lives of those worldwide.

A major threat to this noble quest was the rise of the Nazi party/Fascism (hate, oppression and intolerance) in the 1930's/40's.

To combat this, The MT Army was formed to keep humanity from regressing.

Rykkland | The Kodiak Republic -



RYKKLAND
for PRESIDENT
United Regions Alliance
Experience - Commitment - Vision

Overview

I have been in NationStates since 2006. At one time I was voted 17th most influential player in GamePlay (2009). I have a proven background in community management and administration and I have a history in both IC and OoC policy development and executive leadership. My main community (the Kodiak Republic) has a reputation as a neutral power and one willing to experiment with new systems. Lastly, I also promise to hold office for only one term. I want to make a clear statement that it is my objective to work with purposeful intent to build a better URA today.

Vision and Priorities

Better Community Management
To establish an environment where the alliance feels well managed, driving confidence and involvement from member citizens and member regions.

Discord Server Overhaul
Review and rebuild the Discord-based communication server to minimise clutter, ensure intuitive access to information, and eliminate unused channels.

Encourage & Reward Interaction
Addressing the low volume of server interactions by designing mechanisms to incentivise active participation. The URA does not need to be a centralised community but it should be a common-sense resource for member regions' leadership as well as an approachable space for participation in our central goals: World Assembly influence, cooperation, and collaboration.

Review Executive Policy & Strengthen the Alliance
As part of the larger cabinet committee, failing or rotting systems should be reviewed during the more active period while it is here. Alliance systems should be built so that they do not fall apart during the low activity periods. This may include being open to changing the nature of the executive committee.

Outreach & Foreign Affairs
The foreign policy of the alliance must be more obvious and properly tiered by priority. We must work to maintain established relationships, present a more interactive tone with larger delegates, and above all else facilitate positive relationships within the alliance's member states. We must be brave as well as honest in our dealings internally and externally.

In-Character and Inter-Community Integrations
We should provide sound opportunities for the IC governments of our alliance members to interact. The variability of themes within the alliance makes direct influence between member states difficult and our alliance is well placed to act as a black-box to translate and telegraph interactions between communities which may otherwise be incapable of interacting.

Bolgatostand | Holy Utopian Empire -

Vote for Bolgatostand
Who am I?
I am Bolgatostand and As an ambitious individual, I, Bolgatostand, have always taken opportunities when they arise. When I saw the opportunity to run for Director of Foreign Affairs of the URA, I knew I had to take that risk. This role is a serious one, and I acknowledge the importance of it. But I am here because it is my passion. I love working and getting involved, which is why I am the Minister of Foreign Affairs of HUE - a two-month-old region and a URA member region. With me in control, the diplomacy of HUE quickly grew. And I am confident that the URA can succeed if given the same opportunity.

I plan to get thoroughly involved in this alliance, but this is only the first step towards getting higher and higher in the ranks. One day, I dream of seeing the URA get commended and recognized for all the hard work and dedication of its members. I am running for the position of Director of Foreign Affairs because I take pride in my work, and I am confident in my abilities. I am a strong leader, and I know that my skills will be invaluable in this role. With me in office, the URA will continue to expand its diplomacy and make a significant impact in the world of regional diplomacy. So, please consider voting for me, Bolgatostand, as the next Director of Foreign Affairs of the URA, and trust that I will put all my effort towards the betterment of this alliance and all its members.


please consider voting for me and goodluck to the other candidates. :)
