UwU OwO UwU OwO!
send help asap, the uwus and owos are holding me hostage
OwO! OwO owo uwu OwO? Owo uwu uwu.
Yours in UwU,
I'm from Israel, and my nation is The Jolly Fresh Fields of Lower French Gregballs. I have a factbook (or a few) explaining some basic stuff about my nation, I hope you can take the time to read them, they'll give you an impression about what kind of nation it is. I am working to improve my nation's (already good) environment and eco-friendliness (of which I keep track in a dispatch).
I work for a publisher of books, and am now proofreading a book on some esoteric research I translated. I also write poetry and prose (mostly science fiction), mostly in Hebrew.
A singer-songwriter I admire just came out with a new album, and I decided to work on an English version for its title song. I need to find the written lyrics, since two lines in the song were difficult for me to decipher.
I hope you enjoy your stay in our region.
The best I can do is send you some fresh baked French Toast. I'm sorry, just stay calm someone will come to help I know it!
Also don't be alarmed when 800 red foxes burst through the door to free you.
I know this is one of the first thirty two primordial issues created by Our Father Max, hallowed be his name, but, really, there needs to be more options added to this issue.
Nazi Sympathizers Plan Rally.
Only two options, one advocates kicking them out of the country in the name of tolerance and sensitivity, and other defends their existence saying "we're all nice and tolerant so of course they must be allowed to speak". All of these are well and good -- but there are nations, such as The Ascendant Hive, that would consider a third option: killing them all. Or whatever it is they do to Violetists.
All I'm saying is, despite this issue's venerability, it has no meaningful option for nations that take a third option other than dismissal. Just my take on it.
Sylh Alanor has been installed as the next Councillor of Culture, hooray, long (or for four months) may she reign.
I am now opening candidacy for the Councillor of the Interior, tasked with facilitating engagement, providing regional broadcasts, running polls and overseeing a survivable discussion environment over the RMB. The term runs from Feb 29th to June 28th.
The current Councillor is Melenavenia who is sadly term limited and cannot run again. Therefore I am calling for able bodies to fill that position over the next several days. Candidacy ends at the end of the day on Tuesday the 23rd. Make your notices in #ground-floor or here in this RMB.
Hello everyone! It's me again, this time with a different hat, I suppose. I look forward to being your Culture Councillor again and working on games and activities for us to become closer as Refugi (and friends).
To start this term, I have completed the official dispatch for the Office of Cultural Affairs. Please read and enjoy ^-^
The Councillor of Culture, currently Sylh Alanor, is in charge of orchestrating cultural events and developing the identity of the Refugi culture. They are responsible for keeping people feeling happy and safe, coordinating events, and hosting games. The Councillor of Culture is always available to answer questions, or to put a resident/Member State in contact with another Councillor who can better assist them with their issue. Finally, as of Statute Referendum #3: Guidelines for Environmental Participation and Implication, the Councillor of Culture is in charge of tracking regional environmental stats, and providing regular Eco-Reports informing the region of its progress.
Of the three original Council positions, Culture has had the fewest sitting Councillors. The first Councillor of Culture was seated for only one term, and the position was left mostly amorphous upon their move to Foreign Affairs. It was after Councillor Sylh Alanorís election to the seat in September of 2019 that the Culture office began creating dispatches and driving member activity. The regionís first recruitment telegram, headed at the time by the Cultural Office, began circulating in September of 2019, and the region began growing exponentially.
Most recently, Councillor Refuge Isle overhauled the office, bringing with her beautiful templates for regional dispatches, flag competitions, and cards-based challenges.
The Councillor of Culture, being nominally in charge of events and developing identity, has a wide and vague swath of responsibilities. How do they accomplish these things? The list below will grow as new types of events are added.
Refugi Game Nights: While members on the Regional Message Board and in the regional Discord server can suggest games at any time, the Councillor of Culture will schedule regular official times for games, so that the most people can show up. Games so far have included Tetris, Skribbl.io, and Uno! Do you have a suggestion for a game? Send it to the Councillor of Culture and get it added to the list!
Creative Competitions: As evidenced by Councillor Refuge Isleís Winter Flag Competition, Refugi are eager to show off their creative talent. The Councillor of Culture may call for contests that reward Refugi by featuring their creations on the official region page.
Interregional Events: The Councillor may get in touch with culture staff in our embassy regions to collaboratively work on events. These will be the perfect opportunity for Refugi to get to know and become friends with our neighbours in other regions!
Welcome Raidiaya, Singaputra, New Eruton, Neutral Canada, Naturismturism (Very naturey of a name you have there), Saskvial then, Ellamaa, Tiphlon, and Calexic 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.
Pretty picture chosen for the top!
I really recommend running! I promise if you are selected as the next Interior, you will not only do great, but you'll have great fellow Councillors who are ready and prepared to support you as needed. I said this earlier, but I think Interior is a great introductory position for those interested in becoming a Councillor but are worried they're not experienced or prepared enough! Please, please consider running!
Pro Tip: Change your country animal to something funny like corn or refrigerator so when people look at your leading cause of death (if you have this one) they will see something funny like Pancake Attack or Bucket Attack and get very confused. 6/8 bits on the scale
Condemn Lily page=UN_view_proposal/id=aredita_1613600684 goes to vote tonight in the SC. Rather than my making claims about a situation I'm not super familiar with, I'll echo the arguments I've seen from more attentive Refugi and recommend against voting for a kind of shoddily written resolution. Further thoughts are welcome.
Yeah as I noted in the thread, the resolution is not written all that well, the author submitted the proposal very quickly without actually responding to any of the criticism in the thread or responding like at all. Lily very well could deserve a condemn but certainly not that one imo
Hey btw, donít feel pressured to do these ever. Theyíre pretty heckin great but just make sure not to pressure yourself to do them everyday if you donít want to ^-^
Also unironically a hotel somewhere. I just wanna vibe in a hotel pls and thank you. Alternatively a closet so I can have tons of blankets and pillows for fluff there
Wherever my boyfriend wants to live. Right now we want to set up in someplace in Ontario near Toronto but that might change.
There's definitely a lot of convenience and simplicity in having all your worldly goods packed up in two suitcases that you can move around in less than 20 minutes.
The only thing I missed was having my PC honestly.
Agreed with all linked points. I see no merit in the proposal and will be doing an instant against vote when it's posted.
I'm happy where I am, honestly. We looked a place up and chose to move there out of a list of options, then did it, and I think that it's a great location and where I'd probably be happy spending a very long time. If we're including fiction, then proooobably... uhhh... the space station in my Oracle RP on the forum, I guess. Scifi but still kinda cosy.
