Latest Announcements

Deputy Chief People's Justice:

  • With the closing of one election we go straight into a Run-Off. Congratulations to The Passerine Islands, Shamian, Radicalania and Dynamic Revolution for all earning a seat in the Legislative Committee. However due to a lack of votes for the other candidates, CAD has drawn with NOTA as such a run-off will be held to decide if CAD will serve the region or be NOTA'd.

    The Run-off will be open for 48 hours and can be found Linkhere.

First Minister:

  • Comrades, TCB has surpassed 1,100 nations! The most we have had in years. Amazingly, we have managed to do this during the "summer lull" of NationStates, where we usually lose a couple hundred members instead of gaining. Everyone, please give a round of applause to our wonderful Minister of Domestic Affairs, Wascoitan. She has done a wonderful job this term and has put in a ton of hard work, it should not go unrecognized.

  • Secondly, N-Day is today! If you weren't around for the news, we are with the faction Crabs of the Apocalypse this year. At 5pm EST today, you will be able to join the faction. If you would like to participate or have any questions about N-Day, it would be great if you joined Linkour regional Discord along with the LinkDiscord for our faction. Good luck today.

Minister of Information:

  • I posted a Question of the Day. It asks, what political ideology best matches your own? It will be open for 3 days.

  • I will be on holiday next week, so you can expect the Daily News to go on a brief hiatus. It should resume on Saturday, 2 October.

🦀 CRAB 🦀

For N-Day, The Communist Bloc has joined the Crabs of the Apocalypse alliance with The West Pacific, The Pacific, Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Balder, Europeia, The Great North, United Kingdom, The Social Liberal Union, and The Leftist Assembly.

N-Day begins 25 September 21:00 UTC. Join the LinkCrab Discord to get masked as a TCB member and a participant.

Countdown to N-Day

🦀 🦀 🦀 🦀 🦀 🦀

You can familiarise yourself with N-Day by reading Testlandia's "N-Day: What You Need to Know" guide. The general gist of it is that you may join a faction, create nukes and shields, and target nations in other factions. This event will last 24 hours, and the faction with the highest score wins.

Note: For those concerned, N-Day is non-canonical, so those with a No WMD policy may still participate, and results will not affect your nation after N-Day is over.

  • Legislative committee run-off election (until 26 September)


General Bulletins


  • If you’re not endorsing our delegate Kethania, you should do that straight away! Every endorsement on our delegate protects our regional security as well as amplifies our voice on WA resolutions. You should also endorse our vice delegates, Marxmeans, Shamian, The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine and Ubertas!

  • Become a citizen! This allows you to participate in regional politics, pick your representatives, and join the Regional Discord server. More information can be found here.

  • Check out the Law Archive. It is an easy way to navigate and keep track of all our laws. This document is updated as new laws get passed.

  • If you are interested in getting involved, consider volunteering with one of the Ministries. You can Linksign up here. We greatly appreciate the work all our volunteers do!


  • Want some endorsements? Run the Revolutionary Endorsement Program! It's simple and doesn't take very much time. Endorse comrades, get endorsed back. If you run into any trouble, send a telegram to The Passerine Islands on NationStates or post in Discord, and we can help troubleshoot. Alternatively, post the following to the RMB:

    [nation]ink_cloud[/nation], rep

  • The TCB Card Factory is open and churning out cards! This program includes regional giveaways, a regional art museum, card requests, and of course, shiny 1% International Artwork badges. TCBs Card Factory is asking for a team of volunteers to help operate card farms to ensure a steady supply of cards are being printed. Think you can help? Sign up today.

  • We created a glossary of NationStates terms! We hope this helps anyone who is unsure of what different acronyms and slang mean.


  • Our forums are online, but unfortunately, we have lost a whole year of data. If you applied for citizenship between February 2020 and December 2020, make sure to reapply. You may also have to recreate your account. Apologies for this inconvenience. The government will be working as quickly as possible to re-accept citizenship applications. (Disclaimer: this only applies if you were registered as a citizen in-between February 2020 and December 2020. If you have joined TCB after this time period you do not need to re-apply for citizenship)
    Please also make an account at Link so the transition to the NSLeft forum goes as smoothly as possible.

  • We have created a list of leftist resources! This is an ongoing project, and if you think there is something missing from this list, please telegram or DM me. I am The Passerine Islands here and Sam on Discord.

  • On 11 August, 2021, Head Administrator M.M. resigned, and Precoixious has stepped up and become our new Head Administrator. M.M. will continue as an Observer Admin. Also joining the administrative team and Kirk and Ant. The MoI wishes them all the best.

While run by the Ministry of Information, the Daily News does not necessarily reflect the stance of the current administration. Please contact the Minister of Information The Passerine Islands on NationStates or Sam in the Regional Discord for any corrections, suggestions, questions, comments, or concerns.
