The declaration period will run till September 18th US EST. Let the election season kick off as the URA is looking for you to help us grow and expand!

** NOTICE OF NUCLEAR PREPARATIONS **

N-Day is coming back September 30, and Niamark will be joining the United Regions Alliance and other friends in the faction Kingly Heathens Asserting Neighborliness (KHAN). Read up and prepare below.

You found me!



A coalition of regions including The West Pacific, Lone Wolves United, the Augustin Alliance, members of the United Regions Alliance, members of the Frontier Organization for Cooperation, Unity, and Security, and the Horsemen of the Apocalypse have pooled their medical and scientific knowledge to form KHAN (Kingly Horsemen Asserting Neighborliness). Together, these regions are able to maximize their supply chain and deliver product all across the wastelands.

Before the Event

  • Know your environment. Read up on the nuclear wastelands here. Even if you've run before, it never hurts to check.

  • Join the faction on all nations you plan on using during the event.

  • Familiarize yourself with the unique N-Day 10 changes.

  • Utilize as many puppets as you are comfortable with. More nations means more production at our disposal to use, and managing them is made easier by the Containerise extension.

  • Pay attention to the LinkKHAN Discord server to get the latest orders as quickly as possible. If you are unable to use Discord, orders will be relayed to Regional Message Boards and the World Factbook Entry where applicable.

During the Event

  • Listen to the Khans of KHAN and Faction Commanders and published orders at all times. Trying to cut your own deal will end badly.

  • Check your PipBoy to learn what your specialty is. You will be given specific orders based on your specialty.

  • If you are unable to use a large number of puppets, you can still help by watching for incoming strikes, helping new recruits, and signal boosting Commanders' orders.

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.

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. :)
