  1. For ambassadors and emissaries [IMG=http://www.half-hp.net/uploads/observer%20yggobs.JPG] Volume 3 | Issue 15| October 1 2017 | Newsletter Editor: Dardona | [IMG=http://www.half-hp.net/uploads/observer%20feature.JPG] [b][u] The Election Coming Up[/u][/b] Yggdrasil is one of the earliest regions founded in NationStates and many nations have served the region as Chancellors, or Delegates thus far. Some nations serve for many terms and some served for very long time. The longest serving delegate is [b]South Titania[/b]-391 days. Per Yggdrasillian constitution clause 4.1.2. “The Chancellor shall receive his mandate to office by being the regional ‘WA Delegate’ through a general election of all World Assembly member nations of Yggdrasil as defined by standing electoral law. The Chancellor's main duties are to ensure smooth day-to-day running of the region, promote a vibrant and active community, and in general act in the best interest of the region. a) The Chancellor shall hold the title 'Lord Chancellor' and preside over the Cabinet. B) The Chancellor may appoint to office the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Under this authority, the Chancellor may remove the Minister from the Council at his own discretion.” c) The Chancellor shall be responsible for all World Assembly related matters. Including voting on each WA Resolution in accordance with the wishes of WA members. All WA members shall have the right to express their position on WA Resolutions by a poll in the forum. d) The Chancellor shall have access to regional controls, except in cases of invasion threat and/or his inactivity. The term of the incumbent delegate, [b]Ramsea[/b] will end up shortly and the election will be held ten days after his term end. Currently on the RMB, there are two publically declared nations who will run for chancellorship, which are [b]Tiku[/b], the current sitting senator and [b]Imperium Germania[/b], the current foreign minister. If one of these two nations got elected, their positions will be vacant also. The Observer strongly urges all Yggdrasil's member nations to take part in the election. The region’s democratic future depends on your votes since voting is one of the keystone principles of democracy. [i] “I'm considering running as delegate.

Here is the site, [URL=https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=885027]https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=885027[/URL] [b][u]Message Board’s Debate[/u][/b] Around six years ago, [b]Canadian Davsland[/b] started a topic of discussion on the RMB about Catalonia’s independence. “Does anyone think that Basque Country and Catalonia should be independent? I personally think Catalonia could be, but probably not Basque Country, and as for the other regions maybe not, I also think Spain should NOT be federalized.” This month, the topic was ignited again by himself and a furious debate on the RMB began throughout the month. “I bring grim news. Spain is using their military and police to oppress the people of Catalonia. I thought the death of Franco was supposed to bring democracy to Spain, but it seems Rajoy has decided to revert to Franco's Authoritarian and even Fascist like tactics to suppress the freedom of the people.” “The referendum was illegal, of course they are going to arrest mayors....ok silencing pro referendum speech is against civil rights so you win at there.. however the raids were permitted by a judge so it is not illegal, they are using the military to stop the referendum (since they can't invade it because it is already Spanish land)” “Spain is evil!” “Spain is not evil!” “For the love of god, it's obvious we're not gonna get anywhere on the RMB with this so can we please just agree to disagree? If you're really into burning debates we can take this convo into Discord if we have to.” And truce was settled after that.

  4. Volume 3 | Issue 13| July 30 2017 | Newsletter Editor: Dardona | Yggdrasil Defense Service The Yggdrasil Defense Service (YDS) is the common defense force of both Yggdrasil and Valhalla and defends our regions in time of peace or war. A few months back, our Yggdrasil Defense Service Officer, Wordy had ceased to exist. In the meantime, our founder Goddess Relief Office temporarily took the position. Happily for everyone, Wordy returned about a month ago and reclaimed command of the YDS. The first mission after Wordy was refounded was to 10000 islands to secure Markanite's position of delegate after Markanite had accidentally resigned from the WA. YDS also deployed to Wysteria to place Hydroponic Nation back into the delegate's seat after the region was hit by an update raid. The most recently deployed mission of YDS was to defend the region of Philippines after the region was being invaded by The West Pacific and other invaders, which removed the rightful delegate Ariusgrad. Evidence shows that the invasion happened shortly after its founder, The Holy Kingdom of Zombies of Puan Puri Naduk, ceased to exist. Spear Danes, along with other regions including Yggdrasil had come to an agreement to defend Philippines against The West Pacific. The mission ended successfully with Ariusgrad retaking the position of delegate. Philippines Proposed Embassy Following our defense of Philippines, Yggdrasil has received an invitation to construct embassies with them. As Ramsea, our delegate stated on the RMB on the 27th of July: Philippines proposed to construct embassies with us... we did help liberate them - Ramsea It is understood that the Foreign Minister has gotten in touch with the Philippines to process the application. Tea Time With Who? A year ago, Gahiland started the interviewing series, “Tea Time With Gahiland”. The series included interviews with Vrolondia and South Titania. With Gahiland's CTE, the interview series came to an end. Unsatisfied with this situation, Tiku suggested that the series be continued as everyone missed it. Conversations started as many opinions are stated that how should it be done. Telegram out for participants in the region is also suggested. The person who would take over the series is also unclear. So the series is now an unaddressed issue. Until lately, Imperium Germania stated in the RMB that he might be able to do with the series. Keep it up! We are looking forward to the series! I'm sad I'm just discovering this now. It seems pretty fun to read. – Carrasastova Can someone remind me, was someone going to be editor for the "Interview with/Tea with ____" series for Yggdrasil? – GRO Banjection There are not many reports of suspicious nations who immigrate to Yggdrasil but in this month, Wordy ejected a nation from our region. Nlfn is banned for moving through our region to help with a misguided raid against our friends in Forest. As Nfln was relocated to the rejected realms, it moved to Forest, and was ejected, then Texas, and was ejected, then it moved to Violet Irises and resigned from the WA. New Editor For The Observer Yggdrasil’s The Observer was inactive for the past year.
