If you do not know what The NorthPacificVision is, then I'll tell you. It is a song competition started by Republica Guilleana (Yes this is all him) based on Eurovision, the largest song competition in the world. You send songs via youtube to the host and then, you can see if you won or not. If you win, you get to host. Also, sadly you cannot enter this version, but you can enter versions in the future. We are currently on our 7th edition. And I was one of the winners (in the 5th version). Anyways, this is long, so I will stop right here.
During the end of last term, I talked about how popular El Fiji Grande 's tutorial series was. Recently, YouTube updated parts of their creators studio to give us more tools to measure our effectiveness in reaching our audience. One of the tools is the ability to see what keywords are bringing people to our channel, which of course is variations of Nationstates. If you search that term in the Youtube search bar, you will see something wonderful.
El Fiji Grande tutorial series is #8 in the results, the first video that is not done by a YouTube Streamer or done as part of the publicity videos done by Max Berry. This means El Fiji Grande has made the go to tutorial on NationStates, and has effectively become the welcoming voice of the game. The videos have over 700 views, and in the last 90 days alone El Fiji Grande has taught 289 players how to play the game.
El Fiji Grande has shown how we as a region can help bring new players to the game and how the Ministry of Radio can become our voice to the world at large and improve the games health in the long term.
Calexer! Kon'nichiwa! And Hello!
As a Red Sun rises above a broken region, we here at the Baratochin Central Government are looking to form and strengthen ties with you, our neighbor to the southeast who we share a small border with; And such, we’re contacting the Comedian Government for a few reasons.
Firstly, we would be delighted to set up the beginning of a strong trade bond, starting from anything just like Steel from the Asutoragētou Province, to the Rice and Wheat fields of the Hachimitsu Province, we are more than ready to give a full list of our Government Inventory that can be exported to our neighbor down southeast for the both of our benefit. Interconnectedness between two similar ideological nations that are different only in the slight is a great idea when you consider the proximity of us two, both being bunkered down on our own corner of the Northeast Anean Region.
Secondly, we’d be more than ecstatic to establish an embassy within Comfed that can further our plans of joint hands between the Stratocracy of Baratochi and the Rising Sun Republic of Comfed. We would leave most up to you so you’d have full control of the placement, amount of staff (We’d pick staff however) embassy worker’s accessibility to Comfed as a whole and much more regarding Embassies. In return, Comfed would establish one within Baratochi.
Lastly, the Baratochin Government is looking to secure its eastern and southern flanks as it looks west with ambitions to pacify the region if need be, so the Baratochin Legislative Branch, the Miritarītakai-Hyōgi offers a non-aggression pact between our two states that will last until September 1st that can either be thrown out afterwards or renewed if both parties wish it to be. This would allow you not to worry about Baratochi poking you despite us being allied to the Volkish regarding the Nordlando Conundrum and we wouldn’t have to worry about being at odds with our neighbor in the southeast who we’d rather wish to have close ties to.
Just like Comfed, we here in Baratochi have our grievances regarding the same nation, New Francois, this would be the concrete which the house is built upon, the foundation of two similar, allied nations who can come together to counter the spread of Francois-influence within our borders and beyond if you accept our requests, if not, then so be it. But I urge you to consider what was offered today.

Letters to the Throne 2
Walking down the Sandstone Corridors of the Fortress Monastery it took her a while to get back from the outer Ringwall to her Office in the Central Keep. In the Yard a few Crusaders were exercising. She pushed open the Wooden Door and stepped inside her Office. Her sparsely furnished Office greeted her with Silence, no electronics were humming and the thick walls blocked most of the outside sounds. A few Drawers and Shelves were in the Room but the Central Piece was her large Table. Most of the Furniture and Doors here were made from Wood that came from the Akharan Islands. The Large Table looked considerable darker and beaten up. Due to it being carved from wood specifically imported from the Cold Island of Armatas it was suffering under the heat. But she still liked the oak table, not the least of which being that it could be used as a bludgeoning weapon, though that would require strength beyond a normal Person, a group she didn't count herself among. She sat down and began to pen a letter to Jan-Florian, asking him to visit her Personally, whilst she was asking nicely, refusing someone with at least a Regiment of heavily armed Fanatics trained in Guerrilla Warfare and Infiltration at her back and call didn't seem like the wisest of choices. Of course she would send him all the help she could muster so he would safely make it the Fortress. She called for the Spähmeister (responsible for intelligence gathering, reconnaissance, spying, etc) and her Ordensmarshall (Leader of the Troops), ordered them to make Jan-Florians Journey as easy and safely as possible and made them Clear that if this important Guest was harmed in some way during his way to their Fortress she would have their Heads for it. The Marshall was considerably less impress by that threat, several scars on his neck showing previous encounters with such threats, but he swore that the Mission would be accomplished without fail.

At 9:01 Pm, Armstrong walked up to houses of parliament and reached into his brown satchel bag at his side. He pulled out a single 5 inch long nail, a piece of paper with writing on it, and a 4 ibs lump hammer. He placed the paper on the old oak wooden double door, he picked the left door it was better that way. He placed the paper at just eye level for him... he then stopped and moved it done by 3 inches he was a rather tall man after all. He then placed the sharp end of the nail at just below the top of the paper, this way it held up the paper so he could take away the hand that was holding the paper and place it onto his hammer. He used the hammer to drive the nail home. This attracted the attention of passer-by's who began to record it. The document reads as follows:
"The 9 Reasonable points,
Number 1, osean nocivis attendentes, has lead to the creation of a major power base based around north Osea with resources being pulled in from nearby nations such as monty to furthest reach of osean such as our great nation of Britannia. We have been promised time and time again that these projects such as the railroad in north osea will allow for greater internal trade. However with the cost of such programs spiralling out of control and in constant delay, when will osean admit that those resources are better spent else where.
Number 2, the deployment and general management of multinational osean armed forces, they are quite frankly a mess and not allocated to the regions in most need of there defence but rather spread randomly across the world.
Number 3, osean proditione, time and time again we have watched osean bend to the pressure of outside forces, it has taken them too long to denounce the evil of HOLE at a great cost to our members sovereignty, until they did so.
Number 4, osean promise of a free trade and fair alliance have begun to decay into nothing more but a bloated bureaucratic mess too focus on expanding it legislative power over its members then the safety of said members.
Number 5, osean slow progress, this has also been a great worry to all of our members if it takes days to agree on the design of a parliament building how will we be able to respond to a declaration of war? with many of osean laws and policy being in some cases years out of date (OOC-over a year irl) and not fit for the modern situation we find oursleves in. How long shall we be forced to dance these archaic tunes of a bygone age?
Number 6, osean high command is slowly being undermined, with founding members such as Hong Kong Empire having more power and respect in some circles then the so called elected officials, who are supposed voted members.
Number 7 osean lack of members voice, the very slow reform process demonstrated in osean parliament has once again proven the inability of osean leadership to make the democratic changes that are needed for the alliance to survive in the modern day.
number 8 osean faulty currency, the alliance bank and osean leadership have not been able to fight counter fits of the universal osean currency leading to some business to not accept it as equivalent to legal tender. Action must be taken against such operations before our enemies exploit them.
number 9 osean lack of positive incentives, there currently no major benefits for osean members to work within the spirt of osean law or policy. The alliance has stopped rewarding loyalty in many nations and is wondering why defections are at an all time high.
These 9 points are meant to point out osean flaws but not to undermine osean power or undermine its authority of its leadership these points are respectively offered so that the alliance can improve and become great again.
Sincerely the leader of his majesty loyal opposition Mr Armstrong"
This has been the rallying cry for voices inside the 5 kingdoms who have become doubtful of the current course and placement of osean. The king Edward VII and current Prime minster Chris May have yet to comment on the matter.
