June's Special Feature: The Poet Laureate's Poem for June 2018
Aersoldorf won the poet laureate competition this month, making this his 13th time holding the title. He graciously allowed me to use this poem as this month's special feature, so that our friends in various parts of the NS world can enjoy this delightful and wonderful poem. So, without further ado, this was their entry for the competition this month, with the theme "Flowers".

The Flower of My Youth

A forest filled with leafless trees,
Beneath a sky of lead.
Still sentinels surrounding me,
My Muse, my Love, is dead.

Their frozen fingers, rimed with ice,
Claw at, and chill, my soul,
Where once did beat a love-warmed heart,
They probe a gaping hole.

The Flower of my youth is gone,
In Winter's grip I'm held,
The songs of Joy, once everywhere,
Have had their voices quelled.

Ye offspring of the meadows, that
Of sun, and rain, are born,
Art hideous beside my bloom,
So bow your heads and mourn.

You, Gold of Kinabalu, are
Most dear, in price, to own,
And yet, a fortune meet her worth,
No man has ever known

The Udumbara, legend holds,
Three thousand years 'tween blooms,
My Muse, each day, more lovely grows,
A fairer form assumes.

O Middlemist camellia,
Quite rare, but two exist,
Yet common, thou, compared to her,
Unique in Time's deep mist.

Though trapped within an icy hell,
To Hope I firmly cling,
And pray each day that, come what may,
She'll bloom again, come Spring

August's Special Feature: The Answer to Life, Universe and Taco Island - The Mayor


This month, we start a two part interview with the ever busy mayor of Taco Island, Ater Nox. His eternal majesty, Lord of the Taco and Cream Cheese filling, among other things, graciously offered some of his time to answer a few questions for us. Take a look:

Kozmix: Thank you for your time. So, Mr. Mayor, what is it like, now that you have made it? What is the life of a Taco Island Mayor like?
Ater Nox: First of all, let me point out that I didn't personally make 'it', the construction of 'it' was outsourced to independent contractors and so any damages or injuries caused by 'it' is in no way my fault.

Secondly, my management of 'it' ensured the project came in only mostly over budget and behind schedule, ensuring Taco Islanders will not be pay quite as extensive an 'it' tax that they may have. You're all welcome.
Finally, 'it' is very good, which is a reflection of my own skills, expertise and genius.
The life of a Taco Island Mayor is very hard, and I can say that with a completely straight face. Every day I have to work incredibly long hours to send bribes, receive bribes, solicite bribes, ignore the requests of my constituents, blackmail Council of Nine members, institute unfair laws, transfer money from the treasury to my secret offshore accounts, ignore the demands of my constituents, slander my political opponents, spread rumours about people I don't like, laugh at poor people, donate official funds to my fake chairty, cover up my more heinous crimes and that's just on one of the quieter days. I know it must be hard for you to imagine, but some days I even need to get out of bed before noon in service of Taco Island. I truly am a man of the people after all.

Kozmix: That sounds like a lot of busy work, Mr. Mayor. So, tell us more about Taco Island, and how Mayor Ater Nox, the first of his name, has been different from the mayors before you?
Ater Nox: Well Taco Island has a long and complicated past, going all the way back to ancient times when it was lead by great and mighty Pharaoh's.
After many long years of war and destruction, society was brought into some semblance of order under the first and very wise Mayor of Taco Island.
Since then, the Mayors of Taco Island have ensured it leads the way in economic development, and thanks to our record breaking spam production, we are quite possibly the greatest island in all NationStates.
Now, am I going to claim to be the Greatest Mayor of Taco Island of all time? No, not explicitly. But I'm not saying I'm not the best, and I'm certainly not saying that I'm not not the worst.

Kozmix: What has been your favorite thread thus far?
Ater Nox: Which thread is my favourite? That's a hard question, I've made so many amazing threads. I mean, at the end of the day, what makes one work of art better than another? Of course, some pieces truly transcend the bounds of mortal art, threads such as d, The Schnitel thread, The SS Ator Boltor and my mansion all come to mind of course.

Kozmix: Do you believe that Taco Island is open to all?
Ater Nox: Of course, Taco Island is open to all. Assuming of course they have filed the proper paperwork, paid the appropriate fees and bribes, pay their taxes on time and don't try and bring any sembalance of sanity with them.

This made me question a lot about who I am as a person, and therefore the conversation had to be stopped here for now. We resume it in due course.

New Ecopia ran unopposed for Himes West on a agenda of reinvigorating the 10KI Casino, while Louisistan ran unopposed for Lyonnesse East on the basis of implementing the House Shield Competition that is the responsibility of the Senate seat.
Both eventually won but New Ecopia had to immediately vacate the Senate due to his appointment to the post of Minister of Immigration because Lethoica ceased to exist.

10000 Islands Emissary Update

 


Date: March/April 2019
Population: 1,116
Delegate Endorsements: 286
Forum: http://10000islands.proboards.com

TITO Command


Has your region been invaded, or do you want to get in touch with TITO? If so, contact one of the following nations:
~Chief Executive: Markanite.
~Field Commander: Kanta Hame.
~Tactical Officers: Kortexia, Shy Guyia, Smugglers and Mercs (EF), Sorya.
~Executive Officers: Aschente, Hakketomat.
 

Election Season


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, United Royal Islands, and Witchcraft & 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: United Royal Islands
Ministers: Paffnia (Labor), Sargon Reman (Immigration), Tuga Nation's Dragon (Education)
Senators: Jabberwocky (Senior Senator), Triora, Twobagger, Witchcraft & Sorcery*
*Note: Kuriko resigned shortly after taking office, and Witchcraft & Sorcery was appointed to the vacancy.
 

Fun and Games in the Islands


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 (Texan 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.
 

Around the Islands


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's Dragon). 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.

10000 Islands Emissary Update

 


Date: April 2019
Population: 1,024
Delegate Endorsements: 302
Forum: http://10000islands.proboards.com/

The Following is the Emissary Report for April 2019

TITO Command


Has your region been invaded, or do you want to get in touch with TITO? If so, contact one of the following nations:
~Chief Executive: Markanite.
~Field Commander: Kanta Hame.
~Tactical Officers: Kortexia, Shy Guyia, Smugglers and Mercs (EF), Twobagger.
~Executive Officers: Aschente, Hakketomat.

Government

As of this report’s publication, the Government of 10000 Islands consists of:
-Chief Executive: Markanite
-WA Delegate: United Royal Islands
-Senator of Lyonesse East: Triora
-Senator of Himes West: Flemingisa
-Senator of Blue Canaria North: Tanzoria
-Senator of New Republica South: Dominion of Compassion
-Minister of Immigration: Sargon Reman
-Minister of Labor: Paffnia
-Minister of Education: The Tasmanian Islands

May was election season in the 10000 Islands, and saw a great change in the make-up of the Government. Senators Jabberwocky, Twobagger and Witchcraft and Sorcery decided not to run for re-election. If citizens were hoping for exciting campaigns to find their replacements they would be let down. Flemingisa and Dominion of Compassion were elected to their seats without opposition, and Tanzoria cruised to victory against his opponent, USSR/Hahiha. All three newly elected senators represent the Mayor Shelter Political Party. A further shake-up was made with the appointment of Sargon Reman as minister of Immigration early last month, replacing the outgoing Tuga Nations Dragon.

Around the Islands

-Chief Executive Emeritus Woonsocket was commended by the Security Council for his long years of service to the region and the wider NS world, in a
resolution written by fellow Islander Sargon Reman. Congratulations Woon!
-Kortexia, Tuga Nation’s Dragon and Twobagger all received TITO promotions after reaching defending milestones.
-The Islands celebrated TITO Day on May 9th. Many exemplary Islanders were honoured with medals for their service.
-Long time islander Witchcraft and Sorcery announced he was stepping back from his roles in the 10000 Islands to pursue opportunities in The South
Pacific. Thank you and good luck, W&S!
-The Archpileago Territory has been named Deputy Minister of Education
-The Regional Reserve named Mingulay Isle as winner of the Account of the Quarter award for Q2 2019. His reward is 75000 Tacos.
-Escanaba was recruiter of the month, with Sargon Reman and and Louisistan coming in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
-Vedrea, Hamletus and The Kingdom of Trivia have been selected as featured nations
-The Grand Debate Hall of the XKI University has been filled with discussion over hot button topics like Universal Basic Income, Abortion and
-Immigration and somewhat strangely, favourite numbers.
-In Taco Island, Aschente launched a rebellion against Mayor Ater Nox for not being
corrupt enough. The Mayor reacted with indignation at his credentials in the field of corruption being questioned.
-Tanzoria seems to believe Bolty has falsely convicted Hakketomat of a crime, although it is unclear exactly when, where or why this happened.
