News Bulletin

Vortex Activity
Physicists from Druk University confirmed the unusual activity in Kailash Forest is caused by a vortex. The location of the vortex has been sealed off to the public. Vortex activity has been reported to occur in the area since ancient times.

Typically when a vortex forms, disruptions in the atmosphere occur in the immediate area along with fluctuations in the electromagnetic field. Typically these are mild fluctuations that can make thrill seekers experience mild nausea and disorientation.

Union Strikes
The retail union has declared a general strike across the nation in response to poor pay. The wages have been acknowledged as being not up to par by state auditors.

WA Delegate Update
29th April 2022

Dear all,

It is a great honour to be writing to you fellow citizens upon my selection and successful election as World Assembly Delegate for our region.

On the 16th of March, our founder Yodle announced their plan to retire as WA Delegate, after a successful reign of two and half years. Yodle has been a champion of The Region That Has No Big Banks, since it's founding back in 2016 and has provided great leadership for the region over the longest period. My role now starts by building upon the solid platform which Yodle has built for us, I'm very honoured to be taking over, and I know I have some very big shoes to fill. But equally, I want to bring a fresh outlook as I provide leadership for our region in the realm of World Assembly Affairs.

So I would be grateful if World Assembly members can endorse me, this will help to increase our regional power and increase my efficiency as WA Delegate, by making every WA vote count.

Kind Regards,

New United Common-lands
WA Delegate Elect, Deputy Prime Minister

Proposal for Summer Elections
New United Common-lands, 24th April 2022

Back in November, we set out a proposal to kick start The Region That Has No Big Banks political processes and soon followed our January 2022 elections to five ministerial roles which have seen a massive shift in activity for the region.

Well now it’s the time to announce our plan for the summer elections, the elections will look slightly different from before, this will allow the chance for more Nations to get involved with regional government and our government to be structured more effectively.

There will be three separate election processes running throughout the summer.

    1. Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Elections
    2. Minister for Domestic Affairs & Minister for Foreign Affairs Elections
    3. Declarations of Interest for roles in government

Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Elections

Our Prime Ministerial Elections will be running a little differently this time around. Those interested in getting elected as Prime Minister should pick a running partner as Deputy PM. The elections will be for a joint Prime Minister & Deputy PM team, this should hopefully make for an interesting race in our region. We expect the PM & Deputy PM to be inaugurated by the Founder in Mid July.

Minister for Domestic Affairs & Minister for Foreign Affairs Elections

Once our executive officers are determined we will hold elections for our other two key ministries, giving our citizens their say in how they want their regional government to be run We expect the MoDA & MoFA to be inaugurated by Founder at the End of July

Declarations of Interest for roles in government

Alongside our MoDA & MoFA elections, other Nations will have the chance to put themselves forward to be part of the regional government, the Founder, Prime Minister and Deputy PM will decide how they want to form their government to deliver on their manifesto priorities.

They may choose to re-shuffle the existing officers and promote other nations to government, junior ministers can play a helpful part in performing the duties of Regional Government. At present nothing has been confirmed, below you can see a concept of a future state regional government.

Regional Parliament Reset
Ardeyn, 1st May 2022

As some of you may know, we've had a complete reset and rework of our regional parliament, which includes the newly appointed role in our government, the Speaker of the House (SotH). As our first Speaker, it is my duty to maintain and expand parliament, as well as hold its sessions. These changes came about after a lengthy conversation between me and our beloved delegate, New United Common-lands. We were both disappointed by parliament's inactivity and slowness, and so worked together to come up with an easily implementable solution, thus resulting in the Speaker of the House act.

The Speaker of the House Act, as approved on 13th April 2022 by 6 votes, (6|0|0)

This proposal is to introduce Speaker of the House role to regional government.

Given our recent regional elections, and influx in nations joining our region. We are using our mandate as regional government to improve and overhaul our regional processes and roleplay.

This bill recommends appointing a member of parliament to a new role “Speaker of the House".

On approval of this bill, Ardeyn will be appointed to, interim Speaker of the House to setup processes. Later we will hold an election through parliament to determine who should take this role forward.

Role Responsibilities

  • To give a voice for Parliament within our regional government

  • To remain neutral / independent on political debates and let all voices be heard

  • To support with MP election processes

  • To support with loading bills to parliament and general admin

  • To notify RMB of the outcome to all bills passed in parliament

  • To help increase engagement in a regional parliament generally

This act was a great step in the right direction toward increasing parliament activity, and there are certainly more reworks to come in the future!

If you wish to join parliament and shape our region's future, please read more about it and sign up or send us a bill via this dispatch.

Bankless Football League
New United Common-lands, 30th April 2022

The Bankless Football League (BFL) is a sports league within The Region That Has No Big Banks that partakes in the sport of football, also known as soccer. The inaugural season of the league started on April 6th, 2022 with 16 teams making an appearance.

Our Bankless League contenders have been clear since only four games in the season! Dashing Does FC (Costra Estil, Seed 10) and Danobia FC(Danobia, Seed 13) have been the top teams in their respective divisions, this has remained pretty clear throughout the seasons so far. These teams competed in the half-season exhibition match, where the top of both divisions face off. It was a closely fought affair, with Dashing Does coming out ahead winning 4 goals to 3. However, there was no clear margin which leaves us all guessing about the outcome of the soon approaching playoffs.

Our most recent round at the time of writing was round 11, with the teams fighting very closely for a top 4 position to be entered into the BFL Playoff competition, and now several teams are unable to make enough points to win their respective conferences, commiserations to New-union (SC), Mr Government (DC), Lkandria (SC), Huevina (DC), Ardeyn (DC) and Lemona (DC).

We thank the commissioner of the BFL and Minister of Culture The Washington Federation, for their excellent work and gripping entertainment which the BFL continues to provide, we look forward to the outcome of the next few rounds and into the playoffs to find out which Nation will be crowned champion of the BFL in our inaugural season.

Papers, Please.
Socialistic Britain, The Washington Federation, 17th April 2022

Checkpoint Guard (The Washington Federation);

In your trance, you would end up at the East Grestin border checkpoint, now awaiting approval to enter Arstotzka.
"Papers, please."

Edward Jones (Socialistic Britain);

The man would hand over the Passport, He looked tired and appeared to be in a rush.
Dob: 1987.02.08
Sex: M

Exp: 2025.04.06
"I'm going to be a father soon."

Checkpoint Guard (The Washington Federation);

One discrepancy would be found on the passport.
"Your name, sir?"

Edward Jones (Socialistic Britain);

He paused for a second, Seemingly looking through his mind.
"Oh, uh.. Edward Jones"

Checkpoint Guard (The Washington Federation);

The checkpoint guard would only see the passport on his desk.
"Where is your access permit?"

Edward Jones (Socialistic Britain);

"Uhm.. Hold on."
The man looked through his pockets slightly panicking
"Sure I have it in here somewhere.."
He would pull out a small, crumpled piece of paper and opened it revealing an access permit
"Ah, here it is."
He'd put the access permit on the desk

Checkpoint Guard (The Washington Federation);

The guard would find a discrepancy between the access permit and the passport.
"Obristan? You do know that they don't issue passports in London, right?"

Edward Jones (Socialistic Britain);

The man stood still, appearing to have frozen and not being able to come up with a response.
The man would look at the guard
"Is there perhaps a way we could ignore this?"

Checkpoint Guard (The Washington Federation);

"There is not. Once you sort out your passport, you may return."
The guard would stamp a prominent "Denied" onto Jones' entry visa, which is with the passport. He would be sent away.


Thanks yet again to Socialistic Britain for their excellent artwork and ever-intriguing RMB conversations to keep us all entertained.
