Hello everyone!
The New Thaitiucan Parliament has been dissolved, so new elections are being held. You are invited to vote at the following address:
https://strawpoll.com/2ayLQJwlWn4
Here is the dispatch explaining everything:

On Thursday, June the 6th 2024, president Max Chaos dissolved the New Thaitiucan Parliament, claiming that he couldn't work any more with this kind of parliamentary representation. New elections are thus being held until the 8th of June in the afternoon, to elect a new Parliament.
Max Chaos is gambling and hoping that the favorable economic situation and good opinion of him will grant him a new majority. Parliament was indeed mostly governed by the coalition formed by Unity for Progress, the Regional Empowerment Alliance and the Heritage for Stability Party. Our president often had difficulties passing legislation.

This is the current situation (Parliament has 400 seats):
- Unity for Progress: 122 seats
- People's Freedom Collective: 89 seats
- Regional Empowerment Alliance: 67 seats
- Communist Party: 67 seats
- Visionary Dominion Party: 22 seats
- Heritage and Stability Party: 22 seats
- National Defense Coalition: 11 seats

Here is the list of the parties seeking to conquer seats in Parliament:

The current president's party is seeking to conquer a larger majority, to be able to pass their own legislation. Before the last elections, Max Chaos was seen as a rather radical candidate, but his term as president seems to have softened him. He does still believe in giving greater authority to Parliament, as a milestone on the way to direct democracy. At the core of their platform is a commitment to transparency and inclusivity, as well as a fight against corruption. Civil rights are also very important. Max Chaos is making it quite clear that the economy has bloomed under his term, and the nation of New Thaitiuca is more developed and happy than ever.

This party led the governing coalition over the last six months, and is a liberal, dynamic and progressive party. Their program for the parliamentary elections emphasizes liberal values, focusing on individual freedoms, economic innovation, and social equality. Unity for Progress advocates for robust legal frameworks to safeguard freedom of speech, privacy, and individual autonomy. James Foster, a former president, declared that he hopes to show the New Thaitiucan people that they are reliable and will continue to serve them in Parliament. According to him, the governing coalition is ready to stay together to ensure a majority in Parliament.

Isabella Rivers and the Regional Empowerment Alliance are entering the parliamentary elections of New Thaitiuca with a visionary agenda centered on decentralization, local governance, and community empowerment. Their role in the governing coalition was to help pass a devolution law.

A slightly conservative party that is firmly rooted in preserving the nationís rich traditions while promoting stability and pragmatic governance. Their program includes measures to uphold their cultural heritage, support family values, and ensure a gradual approach to social change. They aim to strike a balance between progress and tradition, advocating for a steady and cautious approach to policy-making. New Thaitiuca should also open up to its close neighbours for trade agreements, instead of working with the broader international community.

This former military general is back for his second parliamentary campaign, leading a coalition of small, rightwing parties with a focus on national security and defense. They advocate for higher military spending, a robust, self-reliant economy and more patriotism.

This is the first time this party is running in a national election. Although it is considered as a rightwing party, its leader Jordan James, has shown clear disdain of the National Defense Coalition. They consider that national security can only be achieved by making border control stricter and make citizenship harder to acquire for immigrants.

The communist party of New Thaitiuca seeks to create a classless society, by redistributing wealth and redefining the economy. In practical terms, they would want to nationalize key industries and ressources, focus on agriculture and provide universal access to essential services.

As citizens of New Thaitiuca, you may vote in these elections at the following link: Link Vote here!. It only takes a few seconds. You have two days to get your vote in.

Monday, June the 10th, 2024
Election results have come through (Parliament has 400 seats):
- Unity for Progress: 25% --> 100 seats (- 22 seats *)
- People's Freedom Collective: 22.73% --> 91 seats (+ 2 seats)
- Regional Empowerment Alliance: 22.73% --> 91 seats (+24)
- Communist Party: 18.18% --> 67 seats (+ 6)
- National Reunion: 4.55% --> 18 seats
- Heritage and Stability Party: 2.27% --> 9 seats (- 13)
- National Defense Coalition: 2.27% --> 9 seats (- 2)
- Others: 2.27% --> 9 seats
* compared to the previous legislature

This seems to be a complicated situation, since the previous governing coalition (Unity for Progress + Regional Empowerment Alliance + Heritage and Stability) only holds 200 seats in the new Parliament, falling just short of an absolute majority. Unity for Progress suffered quite a lot, losing more than 5% of all votes, and Heritage and Stability also lost several seats. Thankfully for them, the Regional Empowerment Alliance gained 24 seats, preventing an absolute disaster. A four-party coalition seems unlikely even in normal times, and no other small party shares their ideals. A two-party coalition is equally impossible, the most seats it could muster would be 191.
The most probable solution seems to be a three-party coalition in between the top three parties, enabling them to hold 281 seats. However, they disagree on many key issues, so who knows what the future holds for us?

You have two days, it would help me a lot if you did vote!
Thank you!

It's that time of year again ó time to break out the ol' Pride/anniversary combo flag, that is! The rainbow stripes on either side of the flag reflect My Nation's support for the LGBTQ+ community. The colours, as seen in the familiar six-striped Pride flag, represent the diversity of sexuality and gender that characterizes human life. The golden maple leaf in the middle of the flag is symbolic of My Nation's anniversary, which falls on June 9. This year, the nation marks its sixth anniversary. June is a joyous time in My Nation as its people gather to celebrate love in all its forms: love of oneself, love of other people, love of one's country, and love of life in general. Happy Pride Month!

Have to say June hasn't been bad. Also best part it's not sweltering hot where I am like last year! Not a bad time at all

Real-Life World Analysis || NationStates Analysis


Date : 16 June, 2024, Sunday


Name of the topic : Reasons For Joining NationStates Server
Release Date and Day : 16 June, 2024, Sunday
Requested By (if any) : No one has requested for it
Author and Co-Author(s) : Queroquestan

First of all, what is NationStates? (Frequently asked by newcomers)
The author doesn't want to waste time in defining the whole history of NationStates. So instead, he decided to share the link for FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), go for it.
Still the author will share the quotes from the FAQ site..

The NationStates FAQ site says:

NationStates is a free nation simulation game. You create your own country, fashioned after your own ideals, and care for its people. Either that or you deliberately torture them. It's really up to you

One can customize its nation's appearance, like changing display banner, flags, demonyms, names (except the nation's name, however the name can be capitalized).
It has amazing role-playing United Nations theme like, World Assembly, where one can vote in the resolution put forwarded by the approved delegates. It is possible when you have the WA membership. If you don't how to get that thing, then refer to FAQ page.
It's better to mention :

  1. If you have any email account, then write your email address in the nation's Settings.

  2. After saving the data, go to World Assembly and click on "Apply To Join".

  3. Then, you will receive a link in the email account from the authority of NationStates server, where it provides a link for the confirmation to join WA. Click on that.

  4. Then, click on "Confirm To Join". After that, you are admitted to World Assembly.

What is the use of this membership? Well, it allows you to vote on a resolutions reached on the voting floor in General Assembly and Security Council both. Further, you can even write a proposal for World Assembly, if you get atleast 2 endorsements from the region you reside in. One from a region cannot endorse another of a different region. Otherwise, one would get endorsements from, maybe 2/3 of the total nations in the server.
It also has the system of regular issues and dilemmas, which one had to solve. It can also be used as a display about what policies one believes and follows in. Not only limited to nations, various ideological policies can be seen in many regions.

Now, how people joins NationStates?

Incidents

Many newcomers or experienced players often tell it's own personal story about how they joined the site, if asked. When they narrates, they mention all the history about his starting journey in NS. The history narration about joining NationStates can be called as narration of incidents. Now what type of incidents could it be possible for this topic? On the basis of this, it can be divided into three :

  1. Family or Relatives : Suppose you asked a guy about how he joined NS site, then he said, "It was my friend(s)/brother(s)/sister(s) who suggested me to play this interesting game." Then, this narration is categorized here.
    a. Suggestion by friend(s) or siblings or cousins is said to be something common in most narration of history.

    I am just scrolling through posts in any social network. Then suddenly, my friend jumped in my room. He/She tells me that he/she found an exciting site where we can communicate with each other and with new friends. Then, I said, "Oh, I am sure its a new app like Facebook, Insta, Twitch, etc. But denying any of my guesses by them, finally I came upon asking that what he/she was talking about. Then they said "NationStates, where you can create your own nation, region and communicate with new-friends including old-friends as I am." Then, I said, "I just want to be away of this damned politics!". My friend then added, "Of course, you can stay away with this. But, at least we can talk to each other." Then, I asked, "Why can't we do this in social media then?" Immediately he answered, "Because, NS requirement of email-address is very less, compared to Instas, FBs, etc." Then, I said, "OK! Lets try it out then."
    b. Suggestion by parents (own or other) is something an uncommon or rare case.
    I asked my mom and dad, "I wish I could rule my own nation with my rules. Is there any site where I can do this? Please tell me." Then, my dad (as a nerd of laws and politics) suggested, "You should play NS then, where you can play, create,....blah, blah, blah. Ignoring the good but boring lecture, I quickly searched about this.

    But, as an expert about parental behaviour, the author finds it unexpectable.

    c. Suggestion by [great] grandparents (own or other) is unexpectable.
  2. Personal Experience : Suppose, if you interview a guy about the same topic the author wrote on, then he may answer like this: "Once upon a time, I was watching an ideological debate on my device. It was about 'Dictatorship vs. Monarchy' I wished that it would be better if I rule my country. I quickly searched about it on my device and lo! I found this interesting site." This can be called as personal incident or personal experience.
    a. This can be also be related with the first point of this topic.
    b. Incidents which is related to the willingness to rule the nation or inspiration from various source, is common or uncommon.
    c. Incidents which is not even related with the joining of NationStates can be said as uncommon or rare.

  3. By-Mistake Incident : This is something related with the Point 2 (c). When one finds the server through any incident or source which is not even related with the ruling willingness or politics, it is called by-mistake incident.

    I was scrolling through the web. Suddenly, I found this thing, which seemed to be interesting. I entered in and confused what to do. I then looked for FAQ. And blah...blah...blah (author feels boring writing the whole example of experience)

Advertisements

As a 1-year experienced player, the author does not find any advertisements that recommends internet surfers like us. What the author finds the most is the bombardments of the advertisements, requesting to join a recommended region. But, the factor of advertisements is possible.

Now, why people joins NationStates?

Opinions

Many NationStates players often have some opinions regarding on the existing ideologies and forms of government, or the leaders or any political objects or thinkings or any personality. This is called opinions about political thinkings and beliefs. This can be divided into five :

  1. Opinions Regarding Ideologies : When a user creates a nation/region with a definite ideology or creates a nation to boycott or oppose an/many ideology(ies), this act is called opinions regarding ideology. (If one doesn't know what is ideology, then let me tell you that ideology or simply, term "beliefs" means thought related with the idea. Ex: Communism, Fascism, Democracy, etc.)
    a. Supporting Ideology (Most)

    I. I created a nation/region where I support democracy. Why democracy? Simple because, it allows every citizen to vote for their leaders, take part in decision making process, protest against decision, etc.
    II. I support communism, because it is the rule of workers, not that of autocratic people. Workers will rule! Workers of the world, unite! Therefore, I created another communist nation.
    b. Boycotting Ideology (Averagely)
    Fascism is just like a b*llsh*t for me. I created a nation/region named "Fascism The Shtt" and its motto is "Fascism s*cks".

    Personally, I don't support fascism. But that doesn't mean that you cannot support fascism. Otherwise, this would be the "ideological genocide" of fascism, which is again equivalent to fascism. It depends upon their beliefs.

  2. Opinions Regarding Countries (Existing or Non-Existing) : When a user creates a nation/region on the name of the existing or former countries (regarding or disregarding latter's actual ideology), then we can say it as opinion regarding countries.
    a. Nations On The Name of Existing Countries [Supporting] (Mostly)

    I. [country name] is the home of democracy. People can live freely. That's why, my nation is named upon its various names.
    II. [country name] is wealthier than any other country in the continent. Additionally, I love money. That's why my nation name sounds like a coin.
    b. Nations On The Name of Existing Countries [Opposing] (More than average)
    Author doesn't want to harm anyone's nationality
    c. Nations On The Name of Non-Existing Countries [Supporting] (Fair enough)
    Soviet Union was a very nostalgic country for me. I still miss it. That's why, I love USSR.
    d. Nations On The Name of Non-Existing Countries [Opposing] (Uncommon)
    Filthy Fascists were just enemies of our glorious country. So, my nation name is "Natzi Free [country name]
  3. Opinions Regarding Forms of Government : When a user creates a nation and controls/boycotts by following the forms of government, it is called opinions regarding forms of government.
    a. Controlling According To The Ideas of Forms of Government (Almost everyone)

    I. Democracy means ruled by people. That means through elections, we can elect our new leaders.
    II. Authoritarian Government/Dictatorship means power in one hand. That's good. At least we are safe from those corrupted officials. Every decision will be taken by our glorious leader.
    b. Boycotting the Ideas of Forms of Government (Unsure about its frequency)
    I. Democracy leads to political instability, as leader changes from time to time.
    II. Dictatorship means there is a possibility that leader can also be corrupted, along with its ministers and officials.
  4. Opinions Regarding Religions : When a user creates a nation to (mostly) support a/many religion(s), then we can call it as opinions regarding religions.
    a. Supporting Religion (not on a large basis, but can be seen in region devoted to religion)

    No religion is superior than any religion. Learn to respect equally.
    b. Supporting Atheism [no religion] or Opposing Religion (mostly indirect supporters)
    Do not disrespect any religion. Its against one's beliefs. Learn to respect equally.
  5. Opinions Regarding Personalities : When a user creates a nation or region, devoted to any personality or boycotting any personality, it is called opinions regarding personalities.
    a. Supporting Personality(ies) (mostly)

    I. I support him because he was the brave commander of our country.
    II. I support her because she's cool.
    b. Opposing Personality(ies) (uncommon)
    I. Boycott him because he is toxic for our community.
    II. Boycott her because she goes against our wishes.

Interactions With People

Most people create nations and reside in random regions, just to talk with their already-existing-in-site friends or with newcomers. This is called interaction with people. This can be divided into many :

"Hello guys!"
"Hey yo! What's up, man?"
"Just roaming around."
"Okay! Just see what our friends are doing in this region."
"What's this links all about?"
"Its all about fictional government works and activities."
"You mean politics? You know, I hate this damned politics. I SAY JUST LEAVE THIS!"
"Why? You know me that I am interested in knowing these activities. Anyway, tell me one thing. Who came first here? You or me?"
"Of course, you."
"Yeah. Then you don't have any right to boycott us."
"What? Boy cut? I can't understand""
"JUST LEAVE FROM THIS SERVER, OR ELSE I HAVE TO KICK YOUR BAD*SS!"
"Wh--?"
The guy who boycotted (uh, boy cutted) the server, just got kicked and banned by his fellow mates.

Cultural Exchanges

Some users (particularly less than average) create nations only to show its creations or arts in the server. This can be done through flags, banners, arts in dispatch and factbooks, arts and creations posted in the forum, storytelling, etc. It is called cultural exchanges.

Employment In Regional Offices

People in more than the average amount, often creates nations to find suitable regions for it to be employed in that regional offices. This habitual activity is called employment in regional offices. This can be divided into two :

  1. Non-Military Employment : As the term says, nations enroll in government works and staffs, i.e. no involvement of military activities.

    Regional Officers, Communication Officers (that's seperate thing that communication is needed among the soldiers during operation), Diplomatic Officers, Appearance Officer, etc.
  2. Military Employment : It is when nations enrolled in the regional military. This is in the form of on-site militia group or launchpads or jump-points.

Multiplied Nations

Many users often creates multiple nations at a time, only for testing and/or back-up purposes, which is listed below. This is also called as testing machine. Its great example is that of Testlandia. This can be divided into many :

  1. Issues Stat Test : More than average number of nations are concerned with the daily issues, some may feel satisfied or irritating.

    I. I should have clicked on the second option to ban protest, as protests often irritates me. I will leave this nation and create another one. Hehe.
    II. I am lucky enough to go with fourth option as it abolishes slavery.
  2. Card Farming Army : A user with multiple nations solves issues and gets a pack of 5 cards with random frequency (common, uncommon, rare, epic, legendary). Then, these are sent to the main nation of the user in order to grow the latter's international artwork amount. These card farming armies are spread all over the other regions or settled in one region only.

  3. Spy : Strange, but it is the possible reason for multiplied nations. One nation to spy a region, second nation to spy another, and so on. Therefore, this method is used for collaboration between the puppet nations.

  4. Telegram Test : This will mostly occur when you have the permission or stamps to send telegrams to multiple nations in one time.

  5. Communicating With Itself : Less likely to occur, but its possible that one user may send message in the region and then reply that message in the same region.

    User 1 : Hey yo. How am I?
    User 1 : How will I know, how you are?
    User 1 : I am talking to you, that is myself. You should know how I am.
    User 1 : Oh, I forgor. Hehe!
  6. Military Operations : Multiple nations are made by a user to conduct regional military operations.

  7. Rise As A Recognized Region : With creating multiple nations, governer, i.e. the user can have more than 20 nations to be slightly recognized, according to what the author thinks. This can happen if the user had good or better memory power to remember passwords, multiple nations have different names,

  8. Puppet Storage In One Region: Mostly related with points "military operations", "card farming army", "rise as a recognized region".

Nothing To Do

Less than average or average amount of users creates a nation and just leave, without conducting any actions on it. This is known as "nothing to do" in the server. As a result, full of garbage of nations gets stuffed in the server.
