Vote Matroyska to put the Unity back in the Loranian Community!


Who am I?



You might know me as your current Deputy PM, or author of many important pieces of legislation, or from my many hilarious RMB posts. As a veteran Loranian, I care deeply about the community we have here and I want to ensure that at all times Lorania is a safe, interesting and fun place to be. This will involve many new cultural opportunities to keep the community active and encourage new members to join and remain here.


What actual policies will I implement?


  • One of my main policy priorities will be recruitment. I don't think we should expand just for the sake of it but more people living here means more active members, and more active members means a more lively and active community. I'm already managing to run API recruitment for an hour or two each day, although that will go down in the coming weeks, so more people are needed to take up the mantle. I'm interested in developing a Unique Selling Point for the region e.g. targeting recruitment at those who left their regions and don't know where to turn - this leads me on to my next area of focus.

  • I'll introduce a lot of new features to advance our regional culture: government support of RP, lots more polls to spark discussion and debate, minigames etc. This is to try and encourage new recruits to stay and become part of the community, so we can have more friends and to help us grow. I also want to foster a more relaxed environment than the one we've been seeing of late - all disputes can be solved with calm discussion, and a friendly atmosphere is what will make people stay.

  • I'll massively increase government transparency so no Loranian feels like they’re in the dark on the decision making process. As much as possible, government negotiations will take place on the Regional Message Board, and I'll also host a fortnightly Prime Minister's Questions where anyone can ask me and my cabinet anything they want to know about what we're doing or something they think we should be doing. I'll also try to introduce a Freedom of Information Act making it illegal for a member of the government to withhold from Loranians information about government affairs that will affect them.

  • I'll continue to author important bills to put to the House of Commons, to improve the way our laws look, remove loopholes and help guarantee 'Equality Above All Else'. A crucial one I want to start on straight away is a criminal code, already drafted by my excellent opponent 24D - we need to clearly set out what is legal and what isn't.



Who are my nominations for the cabinet?



Deputy Prime Minister: Sail Nation, once again. Another thing I want to look into is creating more of a defined role for the Deputy, and I know Sail will work with me on this to create a meaningful set of responsibilities, but until then they’ll also be a sterling standby in case I get assassinated.

Home Secretary: Sirian. As mentioned in their campaign, they have a lot of ideas for regional activities that I’d love to see implemented, and during their spell as Chief Justice we saw how pragmatically they dealt with issues within the region.

Foreign Secretary: Devionsa. An excellent diplomat and with lots of experience in other regions, Devi will make a great ambassador for Lorania.

Chief Justice: everyone’s favourite Banana Duck Skundi. Surely no explanation needed - they’re experienced, fair and down-to-earth, and the perfect person to uphold our laws.

Regional Historian/Law Archivist: Ogliacia. With a deep interest in regional history and making sure all documents are up to date, it only makes sense.

Minister of Culture: I’m very pleased to announce Tai Pei has agreed to expand their former remit as Minister of Memes to be involved in helping define our regional identity and culture. As this is a new position exact responsibilities are yet to be scoped out but I think giving the Culture Minister powers regarding Appearance and Polls, eg to start interesting debates, would be a good extension of the humour they already bring to the RMB and allow them to help us create an atmosphere more people will want to stay in.

Closing Statement

As always I have immense respect for my opponents in this election, and they would all be worthy Prime Ministers - but, I believe I can take this region in the direction it needs to go in, with a clear defined path and a new attitude. Things will get done, and we'll rediscover what's great about NS.
I'd also like to remind everyone that this election we're voting in the Loranian Polling Station region, using Alternative Vote where candidates are ranked in order of preference, so please remember to head there to cast your vote, and even if I'm not your favourite, a second or third place vote still helps!
Vote Matroyska to put the Unity back in the Loranian Community!
Read dispatch


apart from my cabinet nominees, my campaign dispatch is all finished - please have a look, and i'm happy to answer any questions. and please consider voting for Matroyska!

as we draw closer to polling day, i’d like to:
1) ask those with relevant authorities if we have everything prepared for the new voting system to run smoothly - eg are we all agreed on the exact method of tallying up votes we’ll be using?
2) encourage everyone to consider all the candidates: myself, Ogliacia, 2-4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid and Sirian, and to take the time to think about who you’d like to run this region (and your second choice, etc). i sincerely hope you throw a vote to Matroyska, but either way please do vote.
thus concludes my little PSA

vote Matroyska or i’ll be very disappointed in you

ooo ooo aa aa

I noticed my dispatch wasn't very accessable, so I've made it one of this nation's dispatches.

Ogliacia for Lorania!

Who am I?

I'm Ogliacia, MP, RP Manager, and News Publisher of Lorania. I used to be Defense Secretary, Discord Moderator, and even the elected leader of a now defunct political party. However, that's not all. I'm also the Founder, WA Delegate, Regional Judge, Councillor and Council Head of Celtia, a region that is starting to get an active community. So, I have a fair bit of experience on NS. I'm running for the position of Prime Minister (again) because I believe that I can live up to the expectations of this great region.
What is my vision for Lorania?

  • I intend to give Lorania a purpose, and a sense of direction, unlike the current administration, which is quite the opposite. My main focus will be to enhance and strenghen Loranian Democracy and Rule of Law, two things have been damaged in the recent past. I also intend to completely reform the Justice System, as it has failed this region on numerous occasions.

  • Aside from the reforms, I intend to sort out the RP, as it has been abandoned by Lorania for quite a while now, and something needs to be done about it. I will make sure that Lorania's RP is fun for all who participate in it. Also, I will ensure that there's recreational polls for Loranians to vote on, and a newspaper to read.

What will I do as PM?
  1. The Furtherment of Loranian Democracy

    1. Opinion Polls: There will be weekly opinion polls in the Polling Station, these polls include but are not limited to: Approval Ratings of Government Officials and Election Polls (candidate list will be those ask to be included in it).

    2. Freedom of Information - A proposal will be sent to the House of Commons, that will prohibit the Loranian government from withholding information from its Citizens. Further to this, Cabinet meetings will always be on the RMB, for all Citizens of Lorania to see.

    3. Elected Chief Justice: A proposal will be sent to the House of Commons, that will alter the role of Chief Justice to be elected rather than appointed by the PM. After all, the Chief Justice is meant to keep the Cabinet in check, not to be controlled by it.


  2. The Reforming of the Justice System

    1. Criminal Code: The Loranian Criminal Code will be revised, and with approval, be sent to the House of Commons to be made law. This way, we will actually be able to try nations for crimes other than 'helping another group remove the Loranian Government'.

    2. Court Procedures Act: The Court Procedures Act will be redone. This is to accomodate for emergency cases that require a swift response from the justice system, like the Bio incident for example.

    3. Ban List Update: All currently banned nations will be removed from the ban list, as all of them are either ‘disgraced’ (cannot be refounded), long CTEd, or have been banned illegally.


  3. The Reinstatement of the Fun

    1. Roleplay: The Roleplay will be revised and restarted, hopefully with more staff than last time. The Home Secretary will appoint at least 2 RP Managers, who will both moderate and direct the RP.

    2. Recreational Polls: Every week, the Home Secretary will create recreational polls to be voted on by Loranians. This is to provide an incentive for people to log on, this is also to encourage friendly debate on the RMB.

    3. LoraniaNews: With the help of some volunteering citizens, LoraniaNews will be launched as Lorania's all-in-one newspaper. LoraniaNews will not just post news about Lorania, but also about regions which Lorania holds embassies with.

Who will be in my Government?
  1. Cabinet

    1. Deputy Prime Minister: Sail Nation - They have been a good NS friend and mentor to me, and they have at least half a year's experience in this area of government.

    2. Home Secretary: Devionsa - They are always positive thinking and succesfully motivating others, I think they'll be great at organising polls, RP, and other regional activities.

    3. Foreign Secretary: Sirian - Just by looking at their nation size, they have a lot of experience on NS. Because of this, I have no doubt that they'll do great as Foreign Secretary.

  2. Others

    1. Chief Justice: Cousethii - They're always impartial and loyal to Loranian Law, no matter what. This is exactly why they would make great Chief Justice for Lorania.

    2. Regional Historian: Myself - I have experience in this area, as I’m currently the one who archives Celtia’s laws. So it won’t be too difficult for me to do the same with Lorania’s Laws.

    3. Minister of Memes: Tai Pei - Tai Pei has supplied Lorania with more memes than we can count, for as long as I can remember. I’m sure he intends to keep doing so for the future.

That's all, I hope to be in your ranking on the day!

I also echo Matroyska's comments: Consider all candidates, look at their campaign dispatches to see what vision they have for Lorania.

PS: Matroyska has my second ranking.

I urge you to look at all candidates and select your choice based on who you believe is best for Lorania at the present moment.

Vote for me

I think it's just great that we have 4 candidates to choose from with no problems such as the 'spoiler effect' (where the vote is split between similar candidates). Isn't it great that we were able to work together as a community and get this new voting system in place.

Back at the last election, I was considering standing, but when I saw that Matroyska was standing, I was worried that as me and Matroyska are fairly similar politically (in Loranian politics at least), our vote would be split.

Just remember to vote tomorrow!!
