Greetings! I am happy to have arrived here. I wish to present my Diplomatic Credentials. I am the Goodwill Ambassador-At-Large from the SECFanatics Region, and Ambassador from The Great Universe. I will be paying a courtesy visit to The Yarnia Region in the hopes of increasing friendship between our great Regions. While I sojourn here, please do not hesitate to advise me of any areas which may be improved in our relations with Yarnia. It is a pleasure to be here. I look forward to a productive visit. Are there any objections to our landing?

We just arrived from a pleasant visit at The Satellite of Love following a brush with death in The Time Vortex. What's new in the Wolf Realms?

Correction to our earlier message: We no longer represent the SECFanatics Region.

The latest Force Flyer is out!


The Heart Government has been dismissed, elections for the House of Representatives have been held, elections for the Court have been held, and more Ministers have been dismissed and replaced.

Heart Government Dismissed
In an unexpected series of events, the Heart Cabinet narrowly voted for intervention into the regionís affairs by Force. Following this vote, Prime Minister Libertatis Regalis of Force dismissed the Heart Government and appointed a caretaker government. The caretaker government consists of Farallaracks, Lashnakia, Vamperiall, and Waltonburg-Vallonheim. Their primary job is to establish a new Constitution for the region, facilitate new elections, and oversee the next government for its first few weeks in office. This whole dismissal of the government though, has not been without controversy. The government willingly gave up control in the first place because of its inability to make the region more active and a declining regional population. Many say that the government should have stayed in place to fix things for itself rather than having Force once again interfere. Whatever the result, Heart is in for an interesting next few months.

First Elections for the House

The first Elections for House have concluded, resulting in the creation of a Legislative Branch in Force. Six people announced their intention to run, they were Great Latinoamerica of Force, Seoul-Pyongyang of Force, Marcelli of Force, Salibaic of Heart, Western Chosetus of Force, and Wracobia of Force. All six were elected, but for some of them it was very close.

Western Chosetus: 7-0
Seoul-Pyongyang: 4-3
Wracobia: 5-2
Great Latinoamerica: 6-1
Marcelli: 6-1

Salibaic: 3-0

Emergency Court Elections
Due to the absence of a Judge in the Court and the Prosecutor's job being heavily changed by the new Constitution, Emergency Court Elections were held this month. Only one citizen sought the position of Prosecutor, Sword BJ, and there were three contenders for Judge, Lashnakia, Western Chosetus, and Seoul-Pyongyang. After an unusually civil debate, voting was held. Sword BJ was unanimously elected Prosecutor and Western Chosetus was elected Judge.

For Sword BJ: 7
Against Sword BJ: 0
Abstain: 2

Western Chosetus: 6
Lashnakia: 3
Seoul-Pyongyang: 0
Abstain: 0

Cabinet Shake-Up
Three ministers, Seoul-Pyongyang (Minister of Defense), Fortis Draco Islands (Minister of Communications), and Mokkland (Minister of Culture) announced their resignations in October. After speaking with them, it is clear that none of them would be able to maintain activity, or complete a satisfactory level of work. The new Defense Minister, Vamperiall, has already ramped up things in the military, conducting several operations already, and getting people involved quickly! Lashnakia, the new Minister of Communications has been working hard to produce high quality content for The Force Flyer and Quantumland, the new Minister of Culture has created a new map for Roleplay which will be implemented in the coming weeks.

Opinion Editorials

"I think that the people of Force should be able to have more of a say in Democratic elections. This is because the citizens who aren't on the Force Chat on The Force Regional Forum are unable to vote. So I think that you should put a vote on the Force homepage on NationStates. Make it easier for the citizen to vote, and whats more, a telegram can be sent to everyone in Force to notify them about an election. This is just a thought to make Force a better place to be."


"Less than a week ago the Heart government voted to let Force intervene with the government to help Heart recover from the last few months of emigration. Libertatis Regalis, the prime minister of Force, also deemed that a rewrite of the constitution was necessary and that their goal was to get 75 residents within the region.

Heart has had a rocky relationship with recruitment in the past anyway, primarily because any recruitment it has ad, it lost because Force was the region in charge. Many residents left because this is where the action was at. Libertatis will not be able to reach that lofty goal of 75 members and be able to keep it for long.

Kicking out the government is also an unnecessary action. How does Heart have any leadership in the future if Force overtakes the region without retraining or future assistance? The answer is that they canít. All of the previous government officials are left in the dark and have no way of learning how to run a region, therefore leaving the region to fail in the future.

It seemed the only way to keep recruitment up in the region was to draw attention to it. My first governmental job was under the controversial Bennisia as the Minister of Communications (MoCom). He at least brought the desired attention to the region that it needed to get people to stay, even proposing regional mergers to keep the community strong."

In recent months the International Debating Area (or IDA) has suffered from low activity. It is no longer the busy and prosperous region it once was, a place where people from around the world would come to get their views challenged.

We intend to change this. Currently, the International Debating Area is undergoing its Grand Restoration as a last effort to reinstall activity and frequent debates. We would appreciate it if members from across all our embassies participated in our debates and perhaps even move a puppet to our region. Right now, we're hosting our first serious poll in a while:

Gun Control

Please vote and debate in the International Debating Area RMB.

If you feel like our region offers a lot to you or your region, don't be afraid to subscribe to the Debaters' News Outlet (or DNO). To do so, telegram DFTBA-Land.

The IDA has a rich history with many great debates. Donít let that history end today. Join our debates. Question your views. Become a part of our community!
