Please reserve the RMB for RP. If you have a problem with continuity or RP canon, you can talk with me in the Discord.
Why should I debate something that you routinely ignore ? You are a nasty petty little control freak. A Poor role-player and an even worse Founder. This region is going down the rapidly tubes, just like the last region you founded. Note the connection. That's your fault, nothing to do me.

Breaking News: Uw.S. switches from AI Planned Economy to Capitalist Economy
"This is Jenny Williams of the OBN Evening News! [said the overly enthusiastic newscaster who is seen on Uw.S.'s television screens daily] The Oceton Parliament has quickly averted economic collapse as a byproduct of the Artificial Intelligence in charge of our economy halting the distribution of all goods by voting to return to a capitalist system. This move comes two months after the Oceanic National Assembly made the bold decision of putting the economy of its country in the hands of a complex algorithm controlled by a sentient, artificial intelligence, making it the first nation of the New Republic of Sovereign States to have an economy function without human intervention. Immediate sessions had been called in all four chambers of Parliament, with more than half of politicians, as well as angry citizens, calling for an immediate switch to full capitalism.
Emergency Sessions of Parliament
At the nation's national assembly, the third chamber of the Parliament of Oceton, a series of perspectives were heard before an official vote was called on the issue, with the nation's multiparty system reaching an immediate agreement after ten minutes of discussion, with analysts claiming that politicians placed political bias before the pending economic crisis. The first to speak was the notable Mr. Ranil Galavan of the Socialist party, which holds little to no power or influence in the tetracameral legislature, who called for a full switch to a state-planned economy with the absence of artificial planning.
'We cannot invest in this evil system known as capitalism; our nation will be taken over by crooks who will throw our nation into chaos through private industry, corruption, and the endorsement of poverty.' Mr. Galavan placed his wisdom upon other capitalist nations of the New Republic that are plagued with corruption, seeing capitalism as an obstacle to progress.
'Mr. Galavan, I fail to agree with your statements," responded Warren Harry of the Liberal Party, a strong advocate of moderate capitalism. 'Your argument fails to mention that capitalism allows citizens to make profits through self-dependence, while also allowing for economic competition, increasing economic prosperity.' Senator Harry would continue to make a series of points that made his political opponents shake their heads in both agreement and disagreement, both desiring to rid the nation of AI planning but with some disagreeing with the senator's smaller points. 'It must be understood that not allowing citizens to achieve income through self-maintained private business will lead to low public order and a due to the lack of choice and economic freedom. We can both agree that the economic progression of the Dominion was not brought about by AI planning, mind you, but the incomes of all economic classes increased in this period through investment towards infrastructure, entertainment, welfare, and culture. Surely, you understand that a state-planned economy will yield no outstanding benefits.'
The noted supercentenarian politician Mrs. Janet Smithson of the Conservative Party, the only member of the National Assembly who advocates for laissez-faire economics and the oldest member of parliament, soon interrupted Mr. Harry to point out what some call minute discrepancies in his counterargument despite mostly agreeing. 'My esteemed compatriots, while I agree with Mr. Harry regarding the benefits of capitalism and the obvious disadvantages of an artificially planned economy, I must call out his hypocrisy, for he has constantly failed to endorse the complete privatization of the economy at the hands of private industry and has called for useless regulations that cost millions of dollars a year to enforce.' Quickly remembering the crisis as soon as one of her aides whispered into her ear, Senator Smithson remarked that 'however, our nation is facing impending doom. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that we find out how to solve this issue.'
'I agree, but what are we to do about the effects of this proposal on my people?' responded Mr. Aketu Wati, a member of the Kirovukan National Party and member of the Taneti, an island tribe from the isles of The Kirovuka, a self-dependent territory of Uw.S. inherited from colonizers of the 19th Century. 'I will decline any proposal that directly disenfranchises my people, as well as the other tribes of our territory.'
As soon as Mr. Galavan attempted to object to both Mrs. Smithson and Mr. Harry's viewpoints, Roslyn Phillis, President of the National Assembly, immediately halted the discussion by banging the ceremonial and rarely used Gavel of Silence to rally the Assembly's attention, being considered dishonorable rather than illegal—which would be a breach of the Dominion Charter—for MPs to not cease all discussion when this specific gavel is used. The famous gavel, which many see as redundant and trivial, holds the purpose of calling all MPs in the National Assembly to immediate attention, being used by the President of the National Assembly to signal times of great distress that require complete silence to address.
(As a sidenote, the Oceton Parliament is famous for its MPs displaying voluntary attention to figures of authority, including those of opposing political parties and even foreign leaders.)
'Excuse me, ladies, gentlemen, and everyone in between and otherwise!' shouted Roslyn Phillis, President of the National Assembly in a polite yet loud tone of voice on the speaker, with all MPs immediately freezing in their tracks to heed her next few words. We are here to decide what action to take in the scenario of having a near-stagnant economy. All four chambers of vote on an immediate solution for the clear incompetence of the current economic system."
Twenty minutes later, all four chambers voted in favor of abolishing AI planning and reinstating capitalism immediately. Funnily enough, the very AI that was formerly in charge of managing the economy did a series of calculations and concluded that capitalism is the most efficient means of distribution, which compelled politicians to support the re-establishment of capitalism even more. Chancellor Leav Viner signed the resolution into law 40 minutes ago, as well as Prime Minister Cyrus Vesper, who is currently traveling on a plane to the United Republic of Alstin for a conference in Altman, using an encrypted digital signature."
"We now move on to the commercial break!"
Alstin and Nordaxica
1 May 2020. In the port city of Altman, URA....
It was a largely cloudless day as the rays of the sun shined down upon Altman, capital and largest city in the province of Aegis. Founded as a trading outpost at the mouth of the Octavia River shortly after the end of the Wars of the Twelve Kingdoms, the city had grown in the intervening centuries into a city of nearly one million and a major hub for the international pharmaceutical and information technology industries. But on this day, the main attraction for international visitors wasn't the scenic views of sights such as the Bay Bridge extending over Altman Bay; Nor was it the business dealings of corporations and firms located within the city. Rather, the main attraction was a conference; One in which the leaders of world would be attending.
The site of the conference was Concordance House, a neoclassical building built towards the end of the 18th century to serve as the 'modern' headquarters of the territorial government of Aegis prior to its admission as a full province of the Republic; Now, it served as a preserved historical landmark. Inside, the staff had just finished putting the final touches on the preparations for the conference, with agents from the security service ensuring that the building was secure. Shortly thereafter, President Ryder arrived and entered the premises, proceeding towards a room adjacent to the conference room. There he would wait as the foreign delegations arrived and were escorted to the conference room....
A yacht bearing both the naval ensign and the presidential standard flags made its way through the port of Altman, and docked at a small pier chartered for them by the Slactestani consulate general. They yqchts door opened, and put stepped Alib Ajdaburam, the Vice President, and Muhjmad Zanib, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Relations. They walked quickly to two black SUVs with black tinted windows bearing a small Slactestani emblem on the door handle. They entered the vehicles, and proceeded to drive towards the conference building.
CTECian State reforms
The Worldpower CyberTechnologies Corporation has officialy announced it's demise.
The Democratic Socialist Reformers Party has announced that the nation will be completely reformed.
Parts of the controlled territory will fall to Free Meinland, parts to Matofkistan.
The region is dying, and will be gone soon enough. The NRSS will be the first of our 'cycle' to die of inactivity and not of a nutty founder. First, though, I'd like to thank all of you. This was, in my opinion, our most successful region since the URSS. In that capacity, I guess it reached its initial goal.
Don't cry, children, greener pastures are ahead. I recommend that @United Republic, @#FreeNymareg and @Panaxurios come together to form a new region and that you all follow them. I have faith and trust in them, and they know what they are doing.
As for me, I'm sure you've all heard that old adage; "The Captain goes down with his ship". Frankly, I've been slugging along for a while now. Mier's story should've ended after the GU.
Before I go, though, I have a few words of warning from 4 years of NS:
- Don't listen to demagogues
- Democracy isn't always right
- RP comes before politics, always
- Make sure your government is competent
- Don't be afraid to speak out and get involved
- Don't be afraid to get rid of or ignore people who don't contribute
And lastly, steer clear of 'Corvus' and 'New Future Government Whatever Region'. I wouldn't trust Nymareg/Uspua or WS with washing my car; let alone managing regions.
Captain Mier, signing off for the last time. You all have been fantastic.
