    Update No. 21

    Visit our Discord and our Forum WA Delegate: Catalyse | Culture Officer: Marilyn Manson Freaks | Foreign Affairs Officer: Frattastan | | Media Officer: John Laurens | Outreach Officer: The Church of Satan | Speaker of the Assembly: Kyorgia New Delegate Elected The RRA parading with a portrait of a former delegate. We're not too sure of which one this is... For The Rejected Realms, December was not only the holiday season for the celebration of Rejectmas, but it also turned out to be a far larger election period than the triannual general election for Officers. Late into November, Catalyse declared her intentions to challenge sitting Delegate, The Church of Satan, followed soon by the incumbent's declaration of intent to run in opposition, alongside Crazy Girl to again take over the mantle of the perennial candidate. We'll skip through the boring election process, pass the political manoeuvring and ignore the vote buying by going straight to the election results! Coincidentally, this article happens to be written by election's winner, but that there is just a mere coincidence. Truthfully the campaign was much less interesting, and much less stressing, than any allegations of wrongdoing or electoral manipulation would have made it, and instead all three Delegate candidates conducted their campaigns respectfully, with the only incident of notice having been The Grim Reaper's torturously long SWOT analysis presented to Catalyse. The elections were closed on the 11th of December and Catalyse was declared the victor with twenty four first preference votes, while bot The Church of Satan and Crazy Girl enjoyed five first preference votes each. This marked the first time in TRR's History that an incumbent Delegate that has decided to contest an election challenge lost an election. Catalyse's inauguration took place on the 13th, and while the initial celebrations were interrupted by a group of protesters throwing tangerines at the Delegate, the RRA was quickly called into action to curb the resistance, I mean unlawful protests... and make sure democracy takes it's due course. During her inauguration speech, Catalyse delineated her mandate of which she hopes to accomplish during her term, including her short and long term plans, from reviewing and revitalising TRR's Foreign policies to exploring and developing new cultural activities. Written by Catalyse Hall of Fame given a Rejectmas Present The Hall of Fame, instituted in late November by the Assembly of The Rejected Realms to honour past members of the region and their contributions not only to its community but to NationStates as a whole, was graced with a most joyous and happy Christmas morning when a gift was found inside the office of the Hall of Fame's Director, right next to the fireplace. A Rejectmas miracle, as some have called it. The present's wrapping, decorated with drawings of tangerines allusive to Rejectmas, was quickly torn into shreds by the Hall of Fame's Director, after a vote determined they'd be the one to open the mysterious gift, while the rest of those present hid behind the Director's desk. The present turned out to be a portrait of an angel, along with a plaque with a small biography of someone. Everyone was left befuddled as to what the gift actually was, but a well timed call from the office of the Speaker of the Assembly quickly answered any question that there might have been. Apparently the Assembly forgot to inform that Sedge was to be the first inductee to the Hall of Fame and their induction would quaintly fall on the 25th of December. Sedge is not only a former Delegate of The Rejected Realms and prominent regional member, having stood out as an Officer and during the time following Kandarin's resignation, he was also one of the most prominent defenders and a NationStates Moderator, credited with having brought better insight and greater attention to many Gameplay-related issues. And perhaps now we add the much lesser achievement of having been the first inductee to our Hall of Fame to his accomplishments. Written by Catalyse A Hairy Rejectmas Story This year, to celebrate the Rejectmas season, the Delegate opened the hall of the Reject's Palace to everyone and invited all Rejects to participate in the festivities, the banquets and the various activities offered in the festival grounds. The festivities began on the 26th of December, the date marking the traditional start of the Rejectmas season, and will be ending upon the conclusion of its activities. To show that we were celebrating a hairy Rejectmas, we decorated our numerous cities in black, silver and indigo. Fun fact: dramoon is also recognised by most local authorities as a Rejectmas colour but has been lost since the thirteenth century, yet, some choose to represent dramoon with the colours of either "Thistle", "Chestnut" or "Mauvelous"! On the RMB, nations were invited to change their flag in the spirtit of Rejectmas and sing Rejectmas Carols, and then further invited to share those carols on the forums so they could be submitted in the Rejectmas Carol Contest for a chance to be dubbed "Head Rejectmas Tangerine Sprite" if their submission was voted the best, along with having their submission featured in a TRR publication! Other activities and games included a festive purple Rejectmas Tree decoration, a Rejectmas Edition Werewolf game, a Rejectmas Chess Tournament, a Rejectmas Flag Contest, along with several quizzes and spam games.

    Update No. 20

    *waves back to Wordy* You're welcome. Good to see you around.
  3. Founderless Regions Alliance Update - October 1st, 2013 In Today's Update: 1. Elections 2. Statement re: Osiris 3. Update re: UIAF-FRA Summit 4. Currently Before the RA 5. In Defence of NationStates ** ELECTIONS ** The Founderless Regions Alliance held their elections for the current 2-month term at the beginning of September, and saw one of the more active election periods in recent memory. Regional Liaison Officer The Regional Liaison Officer election (responsible for recruitment & support of member regions) fielded two candidates, People United Together (PUT) and Azerzia. PUT was the incumbent candidate after having won a by-election, but he lost by a very narrow margin to the veteran Azerzia, 6-5. Azerzia (6): Christian Democrats (TRR), Flowering Staplers (LA), Tim (SFBA), Falconias (LA), Drop Your Pants (Jethnea), Karputsk (New Sorvun). PUT (5): Sovereign Liberties (GRA), Ironicness (New Sorvun), Groundisred (Atrigeas), Constantin (Atrigeas), Campinia (TRR). Did Not Vote (13): Scoochi2 (Antarctica), Wopruthien (Fidelia), Battlion (Atlantis), Lemurian Islands (Atlantis), Wibblefeet (00000 AWP), Masaries (Gay), Sempans (Gay), Elessar Nenharma (GRA), Wabbitslayah (Jethnea), Northern Chittowa (NP), Lemmingtopias (NP), Nelsonation (TUF), Nibu (TK). Azerzia celebrates his narrow victory. Speaker of the Assembly The Speaker of the Assembly position was another contested election, between the incumbent Ironicness, Nelsonation, and Christian Democrats. Ironicness won the election in a landslide, with 10 votes against Nelson and CD's 1 vote a piece. However, incumbent Arch-Chancellor Karputsk accidentally deleted the thread after the election and the castors of the ballots were lost permanently. Chief of Defence The Chief of Defence election was an uncontested election and was only the confirmation of lone candidate Frattastan. Frattastan was confirmed with 11 recorded votes in favour, 1 recorded abstention. Frattastan (11): Drop Your Pants (Jethnea), Flowering Staplers (LA), Falconias (LA), Wabbitslayah (Jethnea), Ironicness (New Sorvun), Campinia (TRR), Tim (SFBA), Christian Democrats (TRR), Groundisred (Atrigeas), Constantin (Atrigeas). Present (1): Karputsk (New Sorvun). Did Not Vote (13): Scoochi2 (Antarctica), Wopruthien (Fidelia), Battlion (Atlantis), Lemurian Islands (Atlantis), Wibblefeet (00000 AWP), Masaries (Gay), Sempans (Gay), Elessar Nenharma (GRA), Northern Chittowa (NP), Lemmingtopias (NP), Nelsonation (TUF), Nibu (TK), Sovereign Liberties (GRA). Frattastan's reaction upon finding out he had won. Minister of Intelligence The Minister of Intelligence election was also uncontested, with Karputsk stepping back from the AC to take a less taxing responsibility. Karputsk was confirmed with 9 votes against 1 recorded abstention. Karputsk (9): Drop Your Pants (Jethnea), Flowering Staplers (LA), Falconias (LA), Wabbitslayah (Jethnea), Ironicness (New Sorvun), Campinia (TRR), Tim (SFBA), Christian Democrats (TRR), Groundisred (Atrigeas). Present (1): Constantin (Atrigeas). Did Not Vote (14): Scoochi2 (Antarctica), Battlion (Atlantis), Lemurian Islands (Atlantis), Wibblefeet (00000 AWP), Wopruthien (Fidelia), Masaries (Gay), Sempans (Gay), Elessar Nenharma (GRA), Northern Chittowa (NP), Lemmingtopias (NP), Nelsonation (TUF), Nibu (TK), Sovereign Liberties (GRA), Karputsk (New Sorvun). Arch-Chancellor The Arch-Chancellor was the hottest ballot in this year's election, and also the most controversial. With Karputsk stepping back and Wopruthien and Frattastan declining to return to the AC role, three candidates stepped up: Falconias, Sovereign Liberties and Flowering Staplers. A number of votes were altered over the course of the vote, including one vote that was altered after the election concluded, which nullified the ballot completely. The election triggered an extensive debate on voting ethics and the voting system, a debate which is still in front of the Regional Assembly. Falconias won the election by a narrow margin, 5 votes to Sovereign Liberties' 4 and Flowering Staplers' 3. Falconias (5): Flowering Staplers (LA), Karputsk (New Sorvun), Campinia (TRR), Tim (SFBA), Christian Democrats (TRR). Sovereign Liberties (4): Ironicness (New Sorvun), Sovereign Liberties*1 (GRA), Elessar Nenharma*2 (GRA), Groundisred (Atrigeas). Flowering Staplers (3): Drop Your Pants (Jethnea), Wabbitslayah (Jethnea), Wopruthien*3 (Fidelia), Discarded Votes (2): Constantin*4 (Atrigeas), Falconias*5 (LA). Did Not Vote (10): Scoochi2 (Antarctica), Battlion (Atlantis), Lemurian Islands (Atlantis), Wibblefeet (00000 AWP), Masaries (Gay), Sempans (Gay), Northern Chittowa (NP), Lemmingtopias (NP), Nelsonation (TUF), Nibu (TK). *1 - Sovereign Liberties's first vote was for Flowering Staplers, later changed to Sovereign Liberties. *2 - Elessar Nenharma's first vote was for Flowering Staplers, later changed to Sovereign Liberties. *3 - Wopruthien's first vote was for Falconias, later changed to Flowering Staplers. *4 - Constantin's vote was for Falconias, however the post was edited to show a vote for Sovereign Liberties after the election period concluded. Thus, the vote was discounted entirely. *5 - Falconias voted for "abstain". Falconias, unsure if it was safe to come out yet. ** STATEMENT re: OSIRIS ** Member region Soviet Union was invaded by Osiris last week, and the following statement was issued by Arch-Chancellor Falconias, condemning the deplorable actions by the massive sinker: Cormac has since apologized to his fellow members of Osiris for the invasion, admitting it put the stability of Osiris in jeopardy: Regardless, as noted in our official statement last week, the FRA will still not be providing military support to Osiris until we are granted a sincere apology directly by Detective Figs. ** UPDATE re: UIAF-FRA SUMMIT ** As mentioned in an address from Arch-Chancellor Falconias a few weeks ago, the United Imperial Armed Forces (UIAF) and the FRA have laid down their arms and agreed to a conference to discuss a wide variety of issues, the main two being the years-old war that the UIAF has waged on the FRA, and the security of game-created regions in light of the recent spike in governmental instability in those regions. As a temporary measure, Falconias and OnderKelkia have agreed to a ceasefire that will see the UIAF no longer send their military forces into FRA membership regions, including Soviet Union where the LKE was required to withdraw from. Conversely, the FRA will not oppose UIAF forces until the summit is completed - either with a treaty proposal to bring back to their respective membership bodies for approval, or if either party sees irreconcilable differences and the summit is ended without further diplomatic relations. Negotiations are on-going in a private forum. The FRA is represented by Arch-Chancellor Falconias, Vice-Chancellor Flowering Staplers, Chief of Defence Frattastan, and Minister of Intelligence Karputsk. The UIAF is represented by Commander Christopher Bishop and Associate Commanders OnderKelkia, North East Somerset and Charles Cerebella. ** CURRENTLY BEFORE THE RA ** The Regional Assembly is currently debating two hotly contested issues - changes to the current voting system, and the removal of the Soviet Union from the FRA. Arch-Chancellor Falconias proposed a change to the voting system that would see votes submitted privately so that a running tally was not available until after the election; and then once the election ended, the list of voters and who they voted for would be posted publicly. This was opposed by several members, who instead suggested that vote-editing was the root cause of the problems in the voting system and recommended that the ability to edit posts just be removed from the election forum. Removal of the Soviet Union was a proposal made before the invasion, but with the invasion of the region, removal has been tabled until the region can be stabilised. Efforts to contact the founder proved fruitless thus far, though Drop Your Pants, a native of the region, has offered to help rebuild the region and in the interim has passworded the region and safeguarded it from invasion. ** IN DEFENCE OF NATIONSTATES ** One of Falconias's election agenda items, In Defence of NationStates, a proposed elite defender-centrist region, has been started in earnest and has gathered a small number of highly active nations that may prove to be future valuable NationStates players. The region is far from influential, but with 57 nations at the time of writing (including 15 WA nations) - there is definitely some potential to be had here. IDNS will be holding elections in the coming weeks and we encourage anyone interested in getting involved with this project to contact Arch-Chancellor Falconias. IDNS will officially apply to become the next member of the Founderless Regions Alliance after the election, and will serve as the "face" region of the FRA military. ******* That's all from us! Contact us if you have questions, concerns or comments. Regards, Arch-Chancellor Falconias Vice-Chancellor Flowering Staplers Chief of Defence Frattastan Minister of Intelligence Karputsk Regional Liaison Officer Azerzia Speaker of the Assembly Ironicness
