Hello Refugia! I'm offering FREE flag requests to Member States of our region! Please read this dispatch for more information (it has also been pinned):

Hello! I'm offering FREE flag requests to all Refugia Member States. All you have to do to request me is either telegram my nation, Melenavenia, or message me on Discord at Raskuly#0627! I'm certified in Adobe Photoshop and learning Adobe Illustrator. I'm not an artist and don't have the ability to make custom artistic designs however.

Please provide who you are with proof if you are messaging me on Discord and provide a clear explanation of what your request is. I'll try to complete it as soon as possible.

An acceptable message would be: "Hi! This is [Nation name] and I'm contacting you because I'd like to request you. What I want is [Description of flag request]. Here is a screenshot of my settings page to prove that I am who I say I am."

An unacceptable message would be: "Can you give me a flag?"

This offer will still be up AFTER my term as Councillor of Internal Affairs has ended unless specified in the title of the dispatch. Don't be shy if you're interested!

Hey everyone, new Councillor of Culture here, ready to hit you with a thing.

So I'm thinking of doing the first official Refuge Game Night in five years. As I mentioned in my campaign post, we've been playing some games together in the Discord server, and my hope as Culture was to find a way to incorporate the NS-side and forum-side players into that.

The first game we're going to play together is! If you don't know what that game is, it involves a group lobby where we take turns choosing one of three provided words, and then drawing it. The more people who guess it, the more points the artist gets, and the faster someone guesses the word, the more points they get. It's been a lot of fun the few times we've gotten to do it in the server, so I think it'd be a great thing for us to start with.

So when is this going to be, you might ask? I was hoping for this Saturday, February 27th. As for the direct time, there is a site set up where we can vote within a window I've provided. That link is here ( You don't need an account on the whenisgood site to vote, just type a nickname or your nation name, whatever you like more, so that I know who's who. Within the range where most people are available, I will set the game up. I'm hoping for an hour, but we can go longer if people are interested.

Thanks so much, and I hope we can have a lot of fun together!

Hi all,
I'd like to officially announce my candidacy for Councillor of Internal Affairs.
I've been a citizen of Refugia for a little over a month now, and I've come to especially appreciate the sense of community that is fostered here, even just on the RMB. Although I've been located in several regions throughout my time in the game, and Refugia has, without a doubt, felt like the place where I belong. Everyone was very helpful and friendly when I first joined, and I found myself immersed in a group of individuals who shared my passion regarding environmental issues, and who helped to expand my mindset by sharing snippets of their own unique perspectives, cultures, mindsets, and lives. I hope that, if I'm elected, I'll be able to welcome others with the same degree of warmth, help our region grow even more, and encourage further activity on the RMB through polls, textual queries, activities, and the retention of a safe, friendly environment.

Thanks for your time ^-^



The period for candidacy has closed. During the allotted time, I received, one application from #ground-floor and two from the RMB. This gives us three candidates, and consequently marks the first time it actually makes sense that we use instant-runoff preferential voting, hooray. Those nations are:

• Liphia (page=rmb/postid=42899575)
• Laisou (
• Araine (page=rmb/postid=42909737)

There will be a five day voting period, beginning now, where all member states may vote to elect the next councillor. A member state is a World Assembly nation who has lived in this region for seven days, if that sounds like you, your name should be on the voter roll.

Turn in your vote today:

Voting closes at the end of the day on Sunday, Feb 28th. Folks are naturally allowed to ask questions and whatnot until then, just remember to get your votes in before the deadline.

I don't know who to vote for! Best of luck to everyone running!

So in about 33 hours, the General Assembly will hopefully be voting on Repeal: Fairness in Collective Bargaining. This is a repeal written by our own Sylh Alanor and helped slightly by myself, with the aim of repealing a previously discussed law which negatively affected labour unions and replacing it with a carefully worded alternative. As this is something I've had a hand in and several folks in the region have advised about too, the regional position is obviously going to be in favour. If anyone has any questions about the target, repeal, or replacement, let SA or myself know and we'll do our best to elaborate.

Proposal: page=UN_view_proposal/id=sylh_alanor_1613955865

Welcome St Belevier and Turtle Island Coalition to Refugia! I hope you enjoy your stay. If it applies to you pay attention to the rest of this message:

If you have any questions about the region or how NationStates works feel free to leave it here on the RMB! You can also join our Discord server found at the top of the page within our region description. We're all friendly and don't bite!

If you haven't already, consider joining the World Assembly (located on the left sidebar) which will allow you to become a Member State! Member States are able to get a spot on our map (link in the region's description), vote in regional polls, and even run for office when elections come up! If you're not interested in that, that's completely fine! We're a chill laid back community and we aim to make everyone's experience here as wonderful as possible.
