My good friends, my name is Idi Amin Dada, but you may just call me His Excellency President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin, VC, DSO, MC, CBE, Lord of all the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Sea, King of Scotland and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular. I ask for you good people today to vote for me for Secretary-General of the World Assembly. I am the world's greatest general and have many wives. Europeans in particular love me and they give me many great things. If elected, I promise to remove all Obote men from the ranks of the World Assembly and expand the State Research Bureau, the scientific organisation I founded to further the cause of humanity with many medical innovations which you should all be very proud of and appreciative.

The women love me, which is why you should love me to. I will promise to make the World Assembly very good again. Remember, Amin is the greatest and the only person I fear is God, for I have survived nine attempts on my life. I am invisible.

Thank you very much, thank you very much and thank you very much indeed.

Vote Idi Amin!

A spectre is haunting NationStates—the spectre of communism.

All the powers of old NationStates have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: raider and defender, fascist and propertarian, conservative reactionary and milquetoast liberal.

Where is the party in opposition that has not been decried as communistic by its opponents in power? Where is the opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of communism, against the more advanced opposition parties, as well as against its reactionary adversaries?

Two things result from this fact:

I. Communism is already acknowledged by all NationStates powers to be itself a power.

II. It is high time that Communists should openly, in the face of the whole world, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Spectre of Communism with a manifesto of the party itself.

To this end, Communists of various nationalities have assembled in The Red and Black and sketched the following manifesto, to be published in the English language.

1. Decentralize the Secretariat!

Power for the Secretary-General? No! Power to the people!

Caelapes will devolve Secretariat power to local regional soviets and workers' councils! Say no to candidates who want only power for themselves, without fighting for the voice of all nations!

2. Eliminate Super-Delegates!

World Assembly resolutions are decided by the top 1% of endorsement-holders, disenfranchising thousands of nations!

Caelapes will give equal nations equal votes! Let each nation's vote have worth! End the practice of refusing to acknowledge nations' voice—let all nations be involved in World Assembly decisions!

3. No mods, no masters!

Corrupt site administrators and moderators have thrown their weight behind establishment puppet-candidates who want to make decisions without your input!

Caelapes will be a statesman of the people! Down with oppressive deep-state oligarchs and their meatbag puppets! Uphold worker control of NationStates! Get the octopus-tentacle hands of these marionetteers out of our regions!

*opens the door to the Bar on the Corner with a big grin on his face*

Ladies and Gentlemen, *bows* I'd be honored to welcome you as guests in our facilities! This is a bar in your region! So you can access it conveniently from here (via embassy). No need to move! Isn't that awesome! The first guest of every region gets a drink for free!

*holds the door open with one hand while it so happened that he is holding a bottle of your favorite drink in the other hand*

Take a seat and enjoy a drink,  or have fun with the darts and the gambling machines. We also serve some delicious food!

Btw, let me know if you know how to mix drinks. Trust me, people here are very generous with tips! And the girls always fall in love with the guy handling the cocktail shaker ; )

*you immediately know that you would sell you soul for a starvation wage but you feel tempted. Do you? It's a luxury to have the possibility to be a bartender via embassy! Just look at this wall of bottles behind the counter.  amazing*

Haha, it finally gave me access to edit leader name for this one. I'm sure you'll like the choice, Char.


Hey there, I am the Executive Minister of The International Debating Area, I see our embassy construction has finished. If you're keen on debating you can subscribe to our foreign newspaper, The Debating Times. Right now, we're discussing about the war on drugs, you can debate on our RMB (Embassy posting is allowed).

Remember, don't forget to hop on over, debate, and win yourself a Debating Award :)
