Obsidian snake

With that being said, I have a bit of ground to make up for. Happy Governance!!

I'm definitely not the leader of the region, lol. Nor had I endorsed you until a few minutes ago when I checked the site :p

But welcome back! Thank you for the endorsement, every little bit helps.

Obsidian snake wrote:sylh Alanor i believe

Ah yes, the Councillor of Foreign Affairs.

Refugia is, however, a council of co-equals consisting of the Arch-Admin, Councillor of Foreign Affairs, Councillor of Culture, Operations Councillor, and Councillor of World Assembly Affairs. Each has relatively unlimited power in their respective areas, but all of whom must be in agreement on council votes.

More on this in the master dispatch

Maple: "Whoo! we- ah, we.. we did it... That was.. very tiring."
As soon as Alae and Maple, late to the welcoming, Maple is very excited but also very afraid. A strange feeling indeed.

Floofybit wrote:... this bake you will have another 24 hours to complete your dish. You may make any dish you like as long as there is one specialty: Frozen.

Alae: "Frozen... Hm."

Floofybit wrote:"The baskets are marked with the following themes: fishing, swimming, surfing, ice cream parlor, sunshine, and camping."

As they both know exactly what they're going to pick.

Floofybit wrote:Now what are you waiting for? Get going! You don't want to get a bad theme!"

They both walked to get the sunshine basket, 'cause they love appreciating nature and that isn't around much in a metropolis like Ael.

As they get to work, they have no idea what to do.

Maple: You know that infamous fruit that no one has heard of?

As they both go on making a pitahaya(/Dragon fruit) sorbet, step by step... as they have finally done it... It doesn't look as fabulous as they expected but it's nice.

Now time for decorating it, Alae take the leaves from what's left of the actual fruit and surround the sorbet with it,
While Maple searches for a wooden plate with it.

It's time for checking the taste as they still have plenty of time left:
Alae: I like it, it's fun to taste.
Maple: Mhm...

Floofybit wrote:"Now what are you waiting for? Get going! You don't want to get a bad theme!"

Violet (who just managed yesterday to change her family name to Toro, on advice from her PR team) wasn't paying much attention to instructions. She saw two othr competitors grabbing baskets, so she picked one up herself. "Swimming," it said.

"A dish related to swimming? And a frozen one? Hmm." She started fishing for ideas.

"Fishing is reserved for another competitor," smirked Jerry.

"Instead of being such a smart-alec, help me find an idea," she snapped at her younger assistant.

After cogitating for a few hours, she calls out to her aides: "Fetch me Fresh Raspberies, Sweetened Cream Cheese, and prepare Whipped cream. We'll make a Frozen Raspberry Cheesecake and shape the berries like fish, making them "swim" inside the cheese."

They worked on it all day long, then put it into the freezer (with tag saying "Toro-Ooglethworp" on it, so no one eats it by accident). Exhausted, they go back to their rooms and drop dead on their beds.

A random line from a song I remembered. As you can tell I AM B O R E D

Refugi,

I am pleased to bring you the latest map update. Most notable to this update is that I'm clearing out the abundance of nations that have CTEd over the last several months, reopening territory that has previously been held. Because so many nations have CTE'd, and because I've always thought it a bit weird that most nations only have one city on the map, starting this update, I'm no longer removing old nation capitals from the map. New nations that occupy the same space in the future will inherit these as minor cities within their territories.

Here's a summary of the changes:

Countries added:

Countries that have been removed for CTEing or departure:

    Acantua
    Carinesal
    Comstockia
    Forest haven
    Germakia
    Goeppingen
    Harau
    Imperve
    Lunerbehrgm
    Medecion
    Uwusberg

Cultures that have ceased to exist:

    • Hecotian (Harau)
    • Italic (Carinesal)
    • Medicionian (Medecion)
    • Sermanics (Goeppingen)
    • Tree Huggers (Forest haven)

    Ancestral home of Impervian is now Minkyiv, as Imperve CTE'd

An’eth’ara, na lethall’en!

This is the official post for our regional map, from now until whatever unforeseeable end eventually becomes us. For as long as we inhabit our current corporeal forms, we can look upon the following set of images as proof that not only were we here in this time and place together, but that we did it while residing in large quantities. Refuge Isle has prepared for us three images of the map, which will automatically change when there are updates. These images show not only the state locations and names, but also culture groups and regional alliances or treaty groups!

Want to join this cool map club? If you're a Member State in Refugia (World Assembly with 7+ days of residency), all you have to do is telegram the application form to Sylh Alanor. While map updates will happen monthly, they may happen more frequently if time allows for it. The most recent update is listed at the top of this dispatch and will be changed every time something is changed. Furthermore, updates will be posted in the RMB when they occur. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me over the RMB, telegram, or Discord. I will respond as soon as I am able.

Note: No new culture groups will be accepted as of April 21, 2022. If you are filling out a map application, please choose a culture group from the list below the second map image.

Sule tael tasalal, dar'eth shiral.

The raging bu11

Hello fellow leaders, as of recently, I have decided that i will be running 2 countries. The democratic states of Obsidian snake are under my control, but 180 days ago, the country ceased to exist. when i revived it, it was far behind in development, though it still has a chance now. The dominion of the raging bull is the fairly new country i have decided to run in hopes of catching back up. i will re endorse you all as well. Happy Governance!

Remember that you can't be enrolled in the world assembly on two nations at once. You can keep the original country and work on it, it would have a head start on any new one, but you're always welcome to have as many puppets in the game as you like.

Now, you may be thinking, “Emily, I’ve been here for like three weeks and I’m on the map, why did you ping me in this?” That’s a great point! But there’s a small chance someone’s like “I’ve been here 10 days answering issues and I didn’t know there was more to be done in this game than that.” I’m doing this partially for them.

There’s a lot of great information in the welcome telegram you’ve already received, but I have a few things that might help settling into the region easier. Refugia is part of a larger community named Calamity Refuge, or CalRef. We have a discord here: https://calref.network/chat/ and a forum here: https://calref.cc/index.php. Links for both are in the region description box at the top of this page. We host game nights and movie nights from the discord server, and have been recently making our way through the Studio Ghibli catalogue. On the forum we have RPs and spam games (not really related to NS). If you want a place to just chill and talk to friendly people, those are great spaces for that.

If you haven't already done so, please consider joining the World Assembly and endorsing the delegate (that's me!). Click the link to learn more information on what that means and how to do it. If you join the World Assembly, you can endorse as many other nations in the region as you want, and get endorsed in return. You'll also become a Refugia Member State, which means you can vote in our elections and get a spot on our map of Refugia!

If you have any questions, please let us know. Everyone here is really friendly- I think we’ve only ever had one fatality from an introduction. If you prefer to read something pre-written over asking, however, check out this dispatch:

Welcome to The Admin Tower, the central organisational point and directory to all of our associated offices, archives, and research material. In lore, the Admin Tower is the conduit by which internet magic is converted into administrative magic via its anchor stone. This magic forms the land of Refuge Isle, as well as its structure like the forum boards, wiki, lounge, and more. The collective body of which make up our IC and OOC community, Calamity Refuge.

Our NationStates presence is known as Refugia: a chill, left-leaning region that cares about the environment, human rights, and with a disproportionately large LGBT population. Notoriously independent and self-sufficient, by and large, Refugia rejects cumbersome diplomatic arrangements that infringe on our self-determination. Similarly, we develop and operate our own internal infrastructure, so as to never need to rely on third parties. As a result, this community is jarringly stable, having existed since 2008 and with every intention to keep being around.

In terms of regional government, Refugia is led by the Arch-Administrator and a democratically elected council who operate their respective areas as co-equals, unimpeded in their own domains. Our regional law, the Refugia Revised Statutes, is constructed from Member States' contributions. Proposed changes are voted on directly by all Member States at the time through a region-wide referendum on our secure off-site voting suite, LinkVote.CalRef.

Refugia is likely most notable for our contributions to the World Assembly. At the time of this writing, Refugi have brought about a total of twenty three resolutions (not counting co-authorships) to the voting floor. Nineteen of those were successfully passed into international law. Our semi-regular Green Week competitions champion our values as an eco region by challenging members to grow their eco-friendliness and environmental beauty in a two-tier approach that makes competition possible for both old and new nations.

We have also been through such adventures as to have twice survived zombie invasions without a single casualty. Similarly, were instrumental in the defence of Ba Sing Se, which was flawlessly shielded from all radiation damage during the nuclear assault of 2020. We also boast one of the highest International Artwork scores per capita, and are 9th in NationStates for most World Assembly endorsements. All of which can be attributed to the awesome people that live here.




Refugia's government is composed of five different Regional Councillors, as defined by law in the Refugia Revised Statutes. Four of the Councillors are elected directly by Member States in four month terms, and subject to recall votes by the same. Each of the four Councillors are, further, limited to be re-elected but once in a row. For every position, a Councillor is largely at liberty to decide the fate and direction of their office and how it wishes to conduct its business, unless specific power checks have been imposed on their functions by law. Certain substantial decisions about the regional direction require votes that original from Council members. All Councillors have equal political weight in these matters.

Presently, the Regional Council is composed of the following members:

  • The Arch-Administrator, which is defined as Refuge Isle, the region's founder. Although there is no head of government, due to the council structure, the Arch-Administrator is often a figurehead for the region as head of state. The Arch-Admin's responsibilities are primarily to appoint and dismiss other fairly elected councillors into their offices, as well as maintaining regional records and historical notes.

  • The Councillor of Foreign Affairs, presently held by Dacay. The Foreign Affairs Councillor maintains relationships with Refugia's allies and is responsible for managing the diplomatic corps of the region, providing lines of communication and timely updates, as well as managing it's necessary staff. The Councillor provides regional advice for the opening and closure of embassies, which are carried out by regional referenda.

  • The Councillor of Culture, presently held by Tiralta. The Councillor is responsible for hosting regional events that develop regional engagement and cultural identity. By law, the Councillor must develop regular and updated Eco-Reports for the region, that describe Refugia's environmental goals and how members can help reach them.

  • The Operations Councillor, presently held by Sylh Alanor. Operations requires a general knowledge of the world of NationStates, as its role is to be on the look out for threats to the region from outside and from within. When global events spiral all of known creation into turmoil, it is the Councillor of Operations that will determine the region's plan of action to deal with it.

  • The Councillor of World Assembly Affairs, presently held by Cheesy Tots. World Assembly Affairs is responsible for facilitating discussions on World Assembly resolutions-at-vote, developing dispatches with Information For Voters (IFV) on current resolutions at vote, and providing regional recommendations for votes to the World Assembly Delegate.


Visit a government office to learn more about their functions.





All of Refugia's regional law is currently contained within the Refugia Revised Statutes. Any legal member state is entitled to draft a proposal to amend the law, and all proposals are passed by a simple majority of member states within the region. In this regard, Refugia is one of the few regions of the world that practices a direct democracy style, instead of passing the right to legislate through a more exclusive body. The statutes were originally the charter which founded the region and previously called the Regional Organisation and Integration, which organised Refugi Member States to form a government from a previously disassociated collective.

There have, at this time, been approximately ten revisions to the Statutes, carried out by four different authors. There remains an entire world's worth of legislation has still to be created. All past referendums to modify the law are recorded for reference purposes here.


If you would like to get involved in legislation, check out the RRS Referendum Record page for an idea of how they work.




The Regional Map is available visually, in living colour, ever since the transition from cryptic telegram signals.

The Regional Map was first announced on September 24, 2019, though it was not put into an official dispatch until November 25th of that year. Any Member State within the region (a nation within Refugia that has enrolled in the World Assembly and been in the region for at least a week) can fill out the application in the dispatch and telegram it to Sylh Alanor. Once the completed application has been received, Sylh Alanor may reply with questions to better understand locations or specific details, and will then let the Member State know when they're in queue for the next map update. The application mostly consists of details about the nation that will be placed onto the map itself, and we highly recommend filling out all questions to the best of your ability.

The region of Refugia is a collection of variously-sized islands located on the divide between the Hipster Sea and the Sea of Art in the North Connection Ocean, granting the people that live there access not only to high quality coffee and bicycles, but also premium paints, pens, and musical instruments. The region famously sprung from the depths of the ocean on January 31, 2019 fully formed and ready to be populated, entirely unquestioning toward the things that may have existed in its place before, or how it got here. The secret annals hidden away on floor 16 of the Admin Tower suggest that Refugia is actually part of some strange multiverse, a liminal space between different dimensions and possibilities, but in all respects outside of metaphysics, life seems to progress entirely normally.

The countries that make up Refugia cross boundaries of many different species, culture groups, and religions, but everyone works together to ensure a brighter future. Simplebots depart the Admin Tower approximately once per month to take new surveys of Refugia, noting the types of people that live in our region and reporting back to the Office of Cultural Affairs, which prepares and updates the official map. Each Member State is given a gift basket upon springing from the earth, filled with essentials like chocolate, magic springs, and the dictionary of Travel Runes created within the Office of Foreign Affairs.

By drawing these Travel Runes, any member of Refugia can travel to and communicated with the outside world.




How Does is a series of dispatches and Wiki.CalRef articles provided by the community of Refugia.

This program aims to provide helpful tutorials about all things NationStates through our membership's collective experience and know-how. Anyone is welcome to use this repository of knowledge, and we hope it serves to allow the reader to accomplish any of their goals. Should any dispatch here go missing, a backup will be available through the link in the far right side of the navigation bar, which will redirect you to to our off-site wiki.

If you are coming here from the wiki and notice that this article is out of date with the wiki's version, please contact the author of the dispatch in question, the Arch-Administrator, or the Councillor of Culture.


How Does Challenges

The minigame allows you to select another nation on the site, and challenge them according to the only variables that the game is able to comprehend: Stats. This page can be reached by travelling to the page of the nation you wish to challenge and pressing the targetting reticle, or by navigating directly to the Challenges homepage.


How Does Cards

NationStates Trading Cards are a unique trading card mechanic built inside NationStates. Cards are generated once a year (on average), and for every nation existent at that time, regardless of size, the game creates a card for that nation. Those cards are all split into rarities and each have their own number values and prices.


How Does World Assembly

The World Assembly (WA) is the international political centre of NationStates. Membership in the WA allows a nation to participate in areas of NationStates they wouldn’t otherwise have access to, such as raiding/defending gameplay and voting on General Assembly and Security Council resolutions.




The Refugia Tower Archives is an ongoing project overseen by the Arch-Admin to record various data and statistics for both the region of Refugia and the wider NationStates website.

Originally started as a series of disconnected dispatches to record Refugia's regional history as it was being made, the project has since expanded into a much larger, ongoing process. Our informational dispatches currently include Refugia's historical regional data such as Council history and delegate voting records for specific World Assembly resolutions. There are also a growing number of dispatches such as top regions by World Assembly members, World Assembly trends and history, and other NationStates statistical pieces which are accessible to anyone.

Any data or record errors should be reported to the local authority.


Refugia Council Records

The Regional Council, originally established by the Regional Organisation and Integration (ROI), dates back to our founding in early 2019. Since its inception, the Regional Council has added two offices and survived the jump to the Refugia Revised Statutes (RRS). This dispatch records the holder of each office and the delegacy each month from the beginning of Refugia to now.


Regions by WA Members

This dispatch was created to document the number of World Assembly members by region. Updated monthly, it reports the top 500 nations by World Assembly membership and shows the gains and losses those regions have seen over the previous month. It also denotes when a new top 500 region enters the scene.


NationStates Classifications

Many years ago, a government classification chart was created to record each of the 27 government types on NationStates's popularity by percentage. On October 13, 2020, Refuge Isle created a new one, and has periodically updated it since then. The chart shows the prevalence of each government type by all nations, as well as World Assembly nations, along with the graphs' source data.


Passed RRS Amendments

Refugia operates by a singular government document, the Revised Statutes. It has been amended more than a dozen times since its original creation. Whether setting new environmental goals, establishing new Council seats, or overhauling the entire RRS itself, every amendment proposed to our laws have been recorded and preserved in this dispatch.


Voting Record
(2019 - 2020)


A complete record of every vote by the Refugia World Assembly delegate for the years 2019 (Refuge Isle) and 2020 (Sylh Alanor). This dispatch also contains the name, date, and author of each resolution, as well as the stomping power that the delegate had at the time.


Voting Record
(2021 - 2022)


A complete record of every vote by the Refugia World Assembly delegate for the years 2021 and 2022 (Sylh Alanor). This dispatch also contains the name, date, and author (including links if the author was a Refugi) of each resolution, the number of votes the delegate had at the time.


World Assembly Trends and History II

A series of graphs detailing the rise and falls of feeders, sinkers, and UCRs alike. Included among these are indications of power consolidation by the game created regions (specifically feeders), while the diversity of minor UCR delegates fall, but those who make it grow to be strong.

update on the endorsing challenge?

Alae Aej + Maple Aej

"Alae and Maple, your dragon fruit taste was exotic and surprisingly sweet. Your decoration was simple but the theming felt on point. Not all the judges felt the same about the dish but they scored it 8,7,9 for decoration and 7,9,9 for taste, ending with a final score of 49. This was personally my favourite tasting cake."

Franklin Lamar + Michele Hummingway

Decoration: 7,8,8
Total: 7,8,7
Total: 45

Tofi Osgoditir

"Tofi, your presentation of two cakes was a pleasant surprise and they each tastes delightful, especially when mixed together but the tropical flavours seemed to negatively clash with the carrot. The decoration on your baked Alaska was stellar, but the decoration on the carrot cake filled kind of rushed. Both of your scores were worth 24 points, decoration being 9,8,7 and taste being 7,8,9 for a grand total of 48!"

Sheila Agustus Shelby

Decoration: 7,8,7
Taste: 7,8,8
Total: 47
However, with your advantage, your scored was boosted to 49.

Niamh Dunn

Decoration: Unanimous 8
Taste: 9,7,7
Total: 47

Violet Toro + Jerry and Barry Ooglethworp

"Violet, your raspberry cheesecake was exquisite and sweet in all the perfect ways but it just wasn't quite set. The decoration was cute and the berries swimming in the cake was a cute and pleasant addition. Your decoration was scored 7,9,7 and your taste was scored 10,7,9, the only 10 given, and the final standings of 49."

Freja Vedbend

"Freja, your strawberry cheesecake ice-cream bar was a hit for the judges and the decorations tasted great too. When they got sprayed with water, they surely felt that feeling of surfing. However, your decoration wasn't the best and some pieces were poorly executed compared to others. Your score came back in decoration as an 8,7,8 in decoration and 9,9,7 in taste, a total of 48."

"And the winners of the competition are..." Fennex's assistant whispers into his ear. "Oh, this has never happened before. There is a three way tie. The score 49 was given to Aephony, Polushia, and Nydelig. The judges have decided to judge who should be the winner of the competition. Kyle has casted his vote for... AEPHONY! Connyr has casted his vote for... NYDELIG! And finally, Coopyr has casted his vote for the winner of the competition...

Alae and Maple Aej of Aephony! Congratulations to you two, and of course, to all the bakers here. A telegram will be sent shortly to Aephony for their reward. Thank you so much for participating in the competition. We hope to see some more valiant bakers soon enough. See you all next time on the FCBC!"

Certainly.

We're about four days into the challenge so far, so I won't ping for this update. The number to beat right now is 103 endorsements. In the spoiler table below, I've bolded the nations currently on track to win the Season 2 Legendary Card: Sierra Lyricalia. We've added about 500 endorsements since the competition started. The table in the program dispatch has been updated with a list of all the World Assembly nations in Refugia.

And, if anyone is having trouble locating World Assembly nations within our region that you haven't endorsed yet, check out Endorse the World for a quick way to scan through what you've missed:
https://forum.thenorthpacific.org/pages/endorse_world/

The latest leaderboard is in the following spoiler. If you're in our discord server, you can also say "I cast top Refugia" to get this leaderboard any time. Check out how you're doing!

The top 25 Endorsement-Givers are guaranteed to win the Season 2 Legendary Card: Sierra Lyricalia


Endotarting Competition


What the heck does that mean?

Endotarting is when you, as a World Assembly nation, go around to every other World Assembly nation in the region and endorse them. This is great for other people's nations because it increases their endorsement census stat and gives them a warm fuzzy feeling. It's also great because every endorsement that a nation has is a +1 influence point, twice a day. No one else can get native Refugia influence, that magical stuff exists only here. And if you're interested in building these stats, endorsing other nations and having them endorse you back is the easiest way. Everyone in the region doing it together rewards everyone in a hurry too.

Strategically, having influence in the region is a great boon for us all. Refugia is fantastic and wonderful, and I want it to last for ages. However, if something were to happen to me, the delegate seat would gain all of my powers. If that happens, dark forces from the great beyond could target Refugia and steal our kneecaps! The fact is, though, that if a bad actor gains control of the delegacy, they'll want to start banning nations, and the only thing that will protect us is a fortress of regional influence on all of our accounts. Whatever influence you have will make it harder for an invader to ban you. If they can't afford it, you're safe. If you are safe, the region is safe. So when we all have a ton of endorsements on our nations, we slowly get stronger and collectively build this safety net.

Refugia currently boasts having the 10th most endorsements in the world, and everyone's endorsements contribute to this. I think, however, that we can improve even more. So I'm going to get the ball rolling by providing this list of Refugia WA nations that can be endorsed. Try to endorse everyone else on list below, and check periodically to see if you can find anyone new to endorse. Now, or in the future, you are also free to use the North's LinkEndorse the World function to find who you have missed.

In addition to the stat and security bonuses, the top 25 nations who are endorsing the most other nations by the end of the competition on May 22nd are guaranteed to win a Season 2 Sierra Lyricalia. So get to endorsing your fellow Refugi!

Hi everyone, I've got a brand new culture update with a few things you can get involved in over the next week or so.

First up, there's a new poll. Let me know which dinosaur would be the best!

Next, some events!

Scavenger Hunt

I've scattered some clues about the region that will lead you to an answer. That answer will lead you to a prize!

Here's your first clue: Some bold person has gone on a rampage through Refugia! You'll need to rearrange the things they changed in order to find the next clue.

The winner will be the first person to telegram the correct answer to me. They will get the Legendary S2 Independent Planets card, and runners-up will be entered into a random draw for an epic card, so get hunting!

You have one week from this is posted to find the correct answer. If you get stuck, please feel free to telegram me for an extra hint.

Eco Friendly Booster Week

This will run once the Endotarting Campaign has finished, so I will post about that next week.

Make sure to endorse as many people as you can in the meantime cause Refuge Isle is being super generous and giving away 20 legendary cards to the people endorsing the most nations! The more we all endorse each other, the stronger our region becomes. Please remember that you can only have one nation in the World Assembly at a time, though.

YAY!
Tysm Floofybit, that was really fun! And good job to all the others. It was very entertaining.

Thanks for the info!!
