March saw an unusually busy election season, with a Delegate election and a vacated Senate seat meaning that we'd need to hold a total of four contests. Islanders hoping for a hard-fought election with plenty of fireworks were surely not disappointed by the Delegate election, which featured Lower Columbia, The United Royal Islands of Euramathania, and Witchcraft and Sorcery.
In the first round of balloting, no candidate won a majority, with Lower Columbia receiving 3 votes, and United Royal Islands and Witchcraft & Sorcery each receiving 24, sending the election to a runoff. This runoff was one of the more intense elections in recent memory, with both candidates and their supporters campaigning vigorously on the forums, the RMB, and our regional Discord. Further, the runoff saw a live Delegate debate on Discord, which is perhaps the first debate of its kind in regional history. During the debate, the candidates made their case to the voters, exchanging competing ideas on foreign affairs, transparency and reform, and the R/D game. The runoff election was a real barn-burner, with the two candidates remaining within 3 votes of each other for virtually the entire 3-day runoff period. In the end, however, United Royal Islands carried the election, with 27 votes to Witchcraft & Sorcery's 22.
In the other elections, Twobagger emerged victorious against Hakketomat in the campaign to fill the shoes left behind by Sargon Reman, while Kuriko and Triora both ran successful (unopposed) campaigns for the other two senate seats. At the time of writing, the Council of Nine is as follows:
Chief Executive: Markanite
Delegate: The United Royal Islands of Euramathania
Ministers: Paffnia (Labor), Sargon Reman (Immigration), Tuga Nation (Education)
Senators: Jabberwocky (Senior Senator), Triora, Twobagger, Witchcraft and Sorcery*
While many Islanders were busy paying attention to the regional elections, others were enjoying the wide variety of regional games that 10000 Islands has to offer. March saw the newly knighted Mingulay Isle host a Cold War-themed Werewolf game, titled "WW63: Werewolves and Rockets." This game ended with the Americans securing their advantage in the Cold War, prevailing over the Soviets. Thanks to Mingulay Isle for hosting, and for everyone (guests and Islanders alike) for participating in a great game!
Also wrapping up in March was our region's take on nation creation competitions, the Fifth Annual Hahiha Contest for Nation Creation! Named for a prominent Islander, this contest had a total of 17 different nations vying to create the best (or least worst!) nation, trying to stay away from the bottom of each day's World Census Report. In the end, the Republic of Tikistan outlasted the competition, taking home the grand prize. Close behind were Mingulay Isle in second, and Neutrality United in third place. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to Taco Island Charities for hosting, and to all participants for helping to ensure that the competition was a success.
Finally, our regional baseball league, the 10KI Baseball League, heads into its first ever postseason. The Maple Bats (from Cromwell Protectorate) emerged from the regular season as heavy favorites after rampaging through the regular season. The Peoples Players (True Pacific) and New Austin Express (The Texas Faction) also qualified for the playoffs, with the Sola City Bandits (Twobagger) juuuuust squeaking in to the last playoff spot. As of this writing, the Maple Bats and Peoples Players have advanced to the World Series, with the Maple Bats holding a 1-0 edge in the best of 3 series.
If you think playing games with friends sounds like fun, or if some of these games mentioned above have piqued your interest and you want to see what it's all about, or you just want to see your nation's name in articles like this one, why not take part in the games yourself? Most games are open to the public, including Werewolf games. Feel free to hop on in to our regional forums or Discord for information on how to sign up for the next round of games.
March's Nation of the Month was none other than Free Earthian Yap, who is new to our forums and discord this month. Despite being new, Free Earthian Yap hasn't been shy about wading onto the WA part of our forum to debate some of the resolutions with other Islanders. Congratulations!
Also this past month, our University saw a bit of a revitalization under the direction of our Minister of Education (Tuga Nation). We've had a plethora of debate threads pop open, with Islanders weighing in on topics from the ethics of assisted suicide/euthanasia to whether or not recreational marijuana should be legal. A hearty thanks to Tuga Nation's Dragon for spurring activity in this oft-overlooked part of our forum!
Last, but certainly not least, Mingulay Isle has been knighted this month! Mingulay Isle has been ever-present on our forums and Discord lately, so it came as a surprise to no one when he was knighted. Congratulations to Mingulay Isle, our 110th Knight, on earning membership to this hallowed group of defenders.
A special thanks to all those nations endorsing me at this time!

Oi Oi, what's with all this loose talk trying to project me as a mass murderer?
Y'all could say nice things like ST is a former delegate and is just chilling here in retirement but noooo, ST runs a dungeon, ST does things to us....
Please do not advertise unless you've specifically been paid to, thank you.
Desktops often either have them or a least have a space for them. I bought an Acer tower last year that has a DVD drive and can burn DVDs too. There are also plenty of external DVD drives out there. Just out of curiosity what do you need an optical drive for in 2019?
Good morning fellows NSers (is that correct term????) Do any of you know a way to stop seeing forum post updates in "your posts" section of the forums? I made one post on a topic that gets hotly debated, but I'm not involved in it. I see I can put some forum posts on "unwatch" but I have no idea how to do it
I basically go out of my way to avoid the forums but I am sure that another nation here knows!
The NS forums are but a pale shadow to ST’s basement, but still...
The forums are toxic, I'm not going to lie. I saw someone just the other day twist a statement to intentionally create a false dichotomy. It seems that's where people just get heated
It was made on the LGBT+ Marriage Opinion thread. I just said I see love as a waste of time and went through my day.
NS General forum is crap. NS Gameplay forum is alright though.
I've never once had anything less than an angry mob coming after me in NS General any time i posted there when i was a newbie.. so I left and never went back.
Also I'm getting a lot of different issues after I unbanned cars for the first time in like 5 years..
Hello my little nations!!!!!
I just returned from a trip to Canberra bringing my mom since she wanted to see the capital and it was during mothers day week. It was really fun as we tried the segway for the first time and it was such a peaceful city.
With Summer coming around for you all in the north, I was wondering if you guys had any fun Summer plans? Watch any movies lately?
Here's a cute bunny head pat to brighten up your day:
