N-Daył is almost upon us! Join the Federation of Conservative Nations' Army of Freedom faction, an interregional fellowship of right/center-right regions seeking to promote and defend our mutual values of conservatism, libertarianism, capitalism, freedom and liberty during the upcoming Nuclear War. Pro-democracy, pro-freedom, pro-capitalism, and anti-Communism, anti-Nazi, anti-tyranny and anti-authoritarianism.
We seek to defend freedom-loving nations and regions from attack by totalitarian hordes and opportunistic bad guys, and advance our values through targeted conquest of those who threaten freedom.

We want YOU to help drop nuclear FREEEEEEEEEEDOMMM!!! during N-Daył!
N-Daył will start on Wednesday at 4pm CDT (9pm UTC); factions will go live minutes before the launch. N-Daył will last for 24-hours.
N-Daył announcement: page=news/2018/09/23/index.html
Briefing on N-Day and what it is:
N-Day is an opportunity for nations to come together and exchange nuclear weapons in a fiery Armageddon of mutually assured destruction.
Once N-Day begins, join a Faction. Nations outside a Faction can't attack or be attacked. You can join a Faction when you're ready and leave when you're not (to stay safe).
Watch your nation automatically generate Production at a rate of 1 every 2 minutes. Use it to build Nukes and Shield.
Launch Nukes at other nations and use Shield to shoot down Nukes that are launched at you.
The simplest way to play N-Day is to join whichever Faction seems most fun and start targeting Nukes at its enemies while shooting down anything incoming. Your Faction page's icon bar shows everything you need to know, including who's targeting anyone in your Faction, and who your fellow Faction members are targeting.
Attacking: Step by Step
On your Production screen, spend some of your Production to build Nukes. These go into your Stockpile.
On another nation's Nuke page, click/tap the TARGET button and select the number of Nukes to use.
Once Targeted, it takes 10 minutes for your Nukes to reach a READY state. Note that your Targeted page is public: All nations can see who is targeting whom.
When your Targeted Nukes are ready, click/tap LAUNCH.
Your Nukes are now categorized as Launches for you and Incoming for your target. Launched Nukes take 3-5 minutes to reach their target. When they do, they earn Strikes for you and inflict Radiation on the target, which reduces their rate of Production. This also earns Score for your Faction and reduces the enemy Faction's Score.
Defending: Step by Step
On the Production screen, spend Production to build Shield.
Find Launched Nukes to destroy. Your top priority is any Incoming Nukes launched at you. Secondarily, you may wish to target Incoming Nukes on anyone in your Faction (see your Faction's Incoming page), and also keep an eye on Targeted Nukes that may threaten you or your Faction in the near future.
Click/tap DESTROY to deploy 1 Shield per Nuke.
Strategically, it may be wise to avoid attacks on nations or Factions until you are confident of obliterating them, since this eliminates the possibility of counter-attack. Smaller-scale attacks, which damage but don't destroy an enemy, can lead to an escalating series of grudge-related nuclear exchanges.
On the other hand, targeting an enemy can be an effective warning. And it takes Nukes 10 minutes to be ready to launch, so you can't leave it too late.
Each Nuke that reaches a target causes Radiation damage, which reduces the target's rate of Production generation and counts as a Strike for the attacker.
A Faction's Score is Strikes minus Radiation.
N-Day lasts for 24 hours, after which point, an Arms Control Agreement means that no Nukes can be launched. (In-flight nukes can still land, however.)
The "winner" is the Faction with the highest score; if, that is, nuclear war can be said to have a winner. Which we say it can. It's the Faction with the highest score.
Once N-Day begins, Factions can be founded by a Regional Officer of any region. Any and all Regional Officers of that region can update the Faction's official text to issue instructions to Faction members.
Factions can be made open to all members, or restricted to the region's members only.
You can leave your Faction, which is a good way to stay safe if you're signing off for the night. However, you can only do this if you're not engaged with the enemy! That means:
You must not have any nukes targeted or launched at another nation; and
No nukes can be targeted or incoming on you.
Note that in practice, this can make it challenging to leave a Faction, since you may be frequently targeted.
While outside a Faction, you cannot be targeted, and do not generate any Production.
Before joining, it's worth making sure a Faction isn't currently under mass bombardment.
Nations are randomly assigned a specialty.
Military Specialists build Nukes faster: They receive 50% more Nukes when converting Production.
Strategic Specialists build Shield faster: They receive 50% more Shield when converting Production.
Economic Specialists can accumulate more Production: Their cap is 200% higher.
Nations generate Production automatically at a rate of 1 Production per 2 minutes.
Production can be spent on Nukes or Shield.
If not spent, Production accumulates up to a maximum of 50 for Military and Strategic Specialists and 200 for Economic Specialists.
Nukes are purchased with Production, kept in stockpile until ready, then targeted and launched at an enemy nation.
Launched Nukes take 3-5 minutes to reach their target. While in-flight, they can be shot down by any nation using Shield. If they're not, each Nuke generates 1% of Radiation in the target and earns 1 Strike for the attacker.
Shield can be used to knock out Launched Nukes. You can shoot down any in-flight Nukes regardless of who they are aimed at.
Locate in-flight Nukes under Launches or Incoming, and use the DESTROY button to eliminate them at a rate of 1 Shield per Nuke.
It is possible to waste Shield if multiple nations deploy Shield simultaneously to knock out the same Nukes.
Target a nation by viewing their Nuke page and clicking/tapping TARGET. You may then select how many Nukes to target from your Stockpile.
It takes 10 minutes for a Targeted Nuke to reach a READY state, after which it may be launched.
If not launched after 1 hour, Targeted Nukes automatically return to your Stockpile.
Radiation is generated in a nation when it is struck by a Nuke.
Radiation proportionately reduces a nation's Production generation rate. For example, 20% Radiation reduces Production generation by 20%.
When a nation is 100% Radiated, it is destroyed and no longer able to launch any Nukes nor use any Shield.
Radiation is irreversible.
You can leave a Faction when irradiated, but this does not affect your Faction's score.
A Faction's score measures strikes and radiation that occurred while those nations were a member. It is unaffected by nations joining or leaving the Faction.
Used to buy Nukes and Shield. Automatically generated by all non-destroyed nations in a Faction.
Unholy instrument of death and destruction.
A Nuke that has been purchased with Production and is sitting idle, awaiting a target.
A Nuke that has been targeted at a nation. A targeted Nuke takes 10 minutes to achieve a READY state, after which it may be launched.
A Nuke that has been launched at a nation and is currently chewing up 3-5 minutes of in-flight time.
A unit of defensive technology. Possibly involves lasers or satellites or something.
A record of how many Nukes have successfully landed on targets.
A record of how many Nukes have struck the nation. Reduces Production generation.
A group of nations sharing a common interest in survival and/or bloodlust.
Strikes minus Radiation.
Hello chaps, how is everyone?
I am well, yourself? I've been on a hiatus since June. Just been stupidly busy and had some unfortunate life events. But I think I'm mostly back now. Have I missed anything since then?
Very little. I am working like mad sadly, and moving house :(
Ah, well 'tis the season for most of us I suppose. Since legalization a few months ago I don't know if many Canadians have been working very hard.
Happy New Year all!
Hmm I have fallen to 4th in the world for world's largest black market. :( My lazy citizens need to stop buying goods and services through legitimate avenues!
Not long until 29th March: Brexit day. What are everyone's thoughts on the negotiations and the overall process up till this point?
It's a sad cack up - the manner in which it's been carried out, that is. For full disclosure, I don't usually support the Tories anyway, but I think the way brexit has been approached by both party leaders is that Britain shouldn't be in the EU but it should be near enough. I fear we are on the verge of becoming an EU satellite state, accepting the laws and rules handed down as the price of market access whilst having no say in them.
I could be wrong, I often am and will be happy to be corrected, however, it seems to me like there's a conflation between setting out how Britain should manage trade and whatnot with the EU, with that therefore necessitating some sort of membership of a common market.
Ideally, we would have been setting out our plans before we set-off Article 50, and would have made preparations as far as reasonably possible to, strike up new economic relationships across the world, especially with the Commonwealth.
*Sobbing and screaming* OH GOD HOW HAVE THEY MADE SUCH A MESS OF IT? HOW?
I mean...yeah it's not going well.
What are our thoughts on the CANZUK movement?
Ah! I'm back! Hello, chaps/chapettes!
I got sent to the graveyard a while back, but I'm here again.
CANZUK would be great. It's the only bright side to Brexit, in my opinion. But not living in the UK I'm sure I don't have a full grasp on many of the finer points. From a Canadian perspective, it seems as though we can no longer have complete confidence in the United States as a partner and ally so reinvesting in the commonwealth/CANZUK would be very worthwhile. Though that would not play well in Quebec, which is 25% of the vote and most Canadian's are not politically well informed enough to even know we are part of a commonwealth.
Firstly, welcome back!
Aye aye, to my mind, I think Canada would have more influence within the Commonwealth compared to the US' sphere of influence.
Quebec is quite the spanner-in-the-works! I wonder how one could make the benefits of the Commonwealth more palatable to our French-speaking brethren - perhaps the part about having more influence via Canada in a more equitable international federation might appeal to them (as opposed to being in the US' sphere of influence)? No doubt they'd probably prefer a Francophonie Unie than the CW. That said, there are quite a few other CW nations that speak French, as well as the vestigial influences on the Channel Islands (part of the Duchy of Normandy).
What do you chaps think of the incoming Boris regime? I like the look of his cabinet so far, I just hope they actually deliver because there's no time to lose.
Certainly I am more hopeful now than I have been for a while. Being in the Mayite Tory party was not good.
For full disclosure, I'm not typically in favour of Tory policies. I think Boris comes across as a tad foolish personality-wise, however, that is admittedly more superficial.
His saving grace, for me, would be how he handles British unity: I appreciate his comments towards the integrity of Britain. I fear that May was letting our country fall apart. Now, more than ever, we need a positive campaign for our Union, to counteract those in the SNP, Scottish Greens, SF and SDLP, and Plaid Cymru, who would tear us apart. Political differences of left-and-right can be handled every 5 years at elections. Severing our country apart is a drastic, heartbreaking 'solution' that would stand to make us all weaker.
Hello! I'm writing because you previously fought with the Federation of Conservative Nations Army of Freedom. Well, saddle up, we're riding again in the upcoming N-Day⁴!
