Xernon and Andusre Banject the Reformists, a parody of Gotham S1 E7
Featuring:
PRESIDENT Xernon
PRIME MINISTER Andusre
MP Upper Ontario and Hudson Bay
SENATOR Bradonia
MP Lisbane
FAM Korsinia

XERNON and ANDUSRE enter into UPPER ONTARIO’s DMs, bringing BRADONIA along with them.

XERNON: Upper Ontario and Hudson Bay, you're under arrest.

ANDUSRE (to reformist goons): Move. Leave Server button is right over there. Stay quiet.

ONTARIO: What in NationStates are you thinking?

XERNON: We're thinking we'll take you both to the High Court and charge you with conspiracy to overthrow the Thaecian government.

ONTARIO: Try and take me in. You won't make it to #general.

BRADONIA: That's exactly what I said.

XERNON: This is a lawful criminal case. If you resist, you will be banjected.

ONTARIO: I see. We all get banjected in a blaze of glory.

XERNON: If that's how it works out, that's fine with me. How about you, Andy?

ANDUSRE: Fine by me.

BRADONIA: Oh Zoopolis.

ONTARIO: I envy you, boys. Having nothing to lose must be liberating. Must feel pretty good.

XERNON: Yes, it does.

ONTARIO: Suppose you did have something to lose. What would you do then? Suppose, for instance, I had a corrupt B/C officer ready to banject Korsinia right now. Would you still be so brave?

XERNON: You don't.

ONTARIO: I'm telling you I do.

XERNON: You're a liar.

ONTARIO: I have many faults, but I'm not a liar. Lisbane…has Korsinia. You know Lisbane.

XERNON: You're lying. He's left the Discord.

ONTARIO: He rejoined. Came right to my DMs to plead for your residency stat. You have a good Foreign Affairs Minister there. He loves you very much. Too much.

XERNON: Prove it. Prove you have him.

ONTARIO: I could. But I won't. I want you to believe me.

ANDUSRE: It's obvious, Xernon, he's lying.

ONTARIO: Am I? If you think so, go ahead and try to bring me in. You'll be banjected, so you won't know what happens to Korsinia. But it won't be pretty.

ANDUSRE: Lying.

ONTARIO: On my mother's grave. Drop your ban hammers...and Korsinia won't be harmed in any way.

Hello!

If you aren't familiar with me by now, allow me to introduce myself. I'm Hulldom or as Baobab-Bumbaria calls me "WA author of the many names". For long-time residents, you may recognize me as a voice of silliness and occasionally reason in the RMB, the cantankerous defender of his prerogative in #ns-politics, or the voice crying out for a stronger, more effective, and more proactive WA Program. During my time on NS I've been extremely privileged to be able to be active in the World Assembly, authoring both GA #522 and GA #539, with more hopefully to come. I've also been active in our regional government, serving as Deputy Election Commissioner, Election Commissioner, briefly as a member of the House, and now as an incumbent Senator.

As for who I am politically, I'm a disenchanted member of the "Liberal Establishment", a proud and avowed cosmopolitan, and an ardent believer in the potential of this region-if only we don't muck it up. I'm seeking my second consecutive term in the Senate this time, but not on the Liberty Party's line. I believe that my maverick tendencies and the continued need to distance ourselves from the past means that I should run as an Independent candidate for office, and that's just what I'm doing.



So What Am I Going To Fight For This Term?

• A codification of the nascent WA Program into law with more professionalization of it.
• Ratification of the Treaty of Lausanne to ensure that Thaecia does not miss out on the benefits of the Consortium
• Amendments to the military act to require the military to make reports publicly available and readily accessible.
• Legislation which would compel the Executive to complete work on a forum so that Thaecia's foreign relations could be furthered and so that fully on-site members will have an opportunity to interact with the wider community.
• Legislation which would officially create a Thaecian Card Guild, to reward hard work that while useful is not exemplary or sustained enough to warrant induction into the Order of Thaecia.
• Legislation which would create a points based election system so that only those with the most support overall make it into Congress.
• An overhaul of Senate procedures so that it fits the needs of the Senate while also being crystal clear and observing real life precedents.
• A system for regular reports and hearings with the Senate for Ministers, especially the Foreign Minister, so that our crucial oversight task can be undertaken seamlessly.
• An overhauled Senate leadership as it is clear the current leadership is not, in my opinion, up to the task of running the Senate.
• Codification of a formal Senate internship program as I plan to personally begin the hiring of a clerk for my office as soon as I'm elected.
• A re-invigoration of the Thaecian Bar Association to ensure that members, including myself, do not fall out of practice with our "mastery" of the Legal Code.
• An emphasis on cross-party communication and cross-party connections to ensure that the spate of new parties does not lead to the infighting we've seen in the past.

And of course, being an active legislator: asking questions, making amendments, making my stances known, and generally being approachable for the questions and concerns of my constituents: you.



So Why Am I Running Again?

I'm running for a second consecutive term in the Senate because I vehemently believe that there is work yet to be done and that while I may not have *much* in the tank that I can still fight for what I believe in in this region. I believe strongly that the recent spate of parties also does not provide an alternative for the citizenry who believe that integration into the wider world is necessary, that friends with all and allies with some is a dictum we should follow, and that there is still serious work to be done on non-RP law; I believe I can be the voice for that citizenry. Finally, I'm running because I've thoroughly enjoyed my time working in the Senate and with my fellow Senators and I hope those who choose to run for re-election are back kicking with myself and the rest of the returnees after the election.



So What's Next? Will You Try To Forge A New Movement In Thaecian Politics?

Well, to address the second question first: we all saw how that went the last time I tried it. In all seriousness though, I'm weighing all of my options at this time. While I'm perfectly content to remain an independent candidate for office and an independent officeholder, if there were sufficient interest in a party led by me, I'd strongly consider forming my own organization. My sincerest hope, however, is that we, roleplaying politicians, do not see ourselves as overly ideological or too overly partisan.

As for the near future, I will be running for Senate Chair (again). This time, however, I will not run just as token opposition but on a platform of fighting back against mismanagement and poor judgement. I relish the fight and I hope I'm returned so that I can fight it.


My Support
The Islamic Country of Honour (IND), Home Affairs Minister (November 2020-present), former Senator
Pap Sculgief (IND), former Minister of Education (November 2020-December 2020), former Senator

Hi United world of unity, welcome to Thaecia!

Welcome to Thaecia! I'm sure you'll have a great time with us here in NationStates, and the best way to do that is to get involved right away!

To make the most out of your time in Thaecia, you should join the World Assembly and endorse our President The Marconian State. If you need more information on how to join the WA or you want to apply for a position in the executive or even run for a seat in Congress, check out this Information Factbook. If you have time, feel free to read through the Education Ministry where you can learn things like history of Thaecia. You can also read through the Law Registry for an overview of our laws and government. You should also consider joining our Regional Discord Server: https://discord.gg/RYgzby8

But most importantly, have fun! Get chatting to your fellow Thaecians on the Regional Message Board (RMB) or Discord to get to know a few of us. You'll feel right at home in no time!

If you have any questions or concerns you'd like us to help you with, don't hesitate to telegram me Zon island or The Islamic Country of Honour. Also, check out our Roleplay, if you have any questions about roleplay, please telegram Islonia.

With the news that Marco is not running again and an uncontested serious race, I am officially launching my Presidential campaign again.


Simply put, I'm running for President because I think Thaecia is much better than the sum of its parts at the moment. While I believe that this administration has made admirable strides in opening up Thaecia to the world and in being the best representation we can hope for on the world stage, we have a long ways to go. We need an administration actively engaged in the world's business in the World Assembly. We need an administration that is continually willing to follow the lead of the Foreign Minister in advancing our interests. Finally, we need an administration ready to step in and promote Thaecia's interests in regards to the military-refusing to enter into dangerous engagements, even if it we are "technically" non-aligned. In sum, I'm running because I'm looking to make Thaecia a name to know in the WA, a name to know in regards to good governance and diplomacy, and because I want to be the safeguard of our foreign relations even as we aggressively pursue fun with our military.


Hulldom on the campaign trail for Senate in November.



I'm a long-term resident of Thaecia as, save for three days last September, I have been in this region since April 2020. I've also been here in some form since January 2020 with various puppets. In terms of who I am, and where I'm at now...in the spoiler is an accounting of positions I currently hold in the wider world. Currently, I'm the Leader of the Opposition as Shadow Chairman of the Senate and I'm proud to have been elected to the Senate in October. I'm also currently the head of the Data and Statistics Department for the Home Affairs Ministry. Formerly, I've been a Member of the House of Commons (briefly Deputy Speaker of the House) (August 2020-September 2020), Electoral Commissioner (June 2020-August 2020), and Deputy Electoral Commissioner (June 2020). So...I'm not exactly new to this governing thing. I'd direct you here for information on my past.

Hulldom, discussing affairs with foreign leaders.

My Plan for External Relations

• A policy closer hewn to defending, with the official Thaeimperial Military officially only participating in Defense Operations and Fash-bashing Raids. As Commander-in-Chief, I would communicate to my Defense Minister that Thaecia would only participate in raids like Operation Boom Beach if other non-aligned militaries like The East Pacific are a part of that raid.
• However, I would also communicate to the Defense Minister that individual members may join raiding operations on their own time. While they do not require the Commander-in-Chief's personal approval or the Minister's approval, they may only join operations as their individual nation and not with Thaecian backing.
• Closer diplomatic cooperation with The East Pacific, including strengthening and formally codifying a treaty which establishes the Consortium.
• Pursuing embassies, and formal treaties with, The South Pacific and Europeia. Looking into cooperation and detente with The North Pacific.
• Encouraging the Foreign Minister to review all existing embassies and their cooperation with Thaecia. Closing embassies with regions with whom we have no existing cooperation or treaty on the book, save for those where there is a compelling reason for us to continue an embassy relationship.
• Taking concrete steps to renew relationships with regions like New West Indies that felt aggrieved with the WA bomb telegram.
• Continuing to engage in Refound stamp recruiting, Manual recruiting, and API recruiting (more on that later).


Hulldom, speaking to assorted World Assembly ambassadors when presenting a draft proposal.

My Plan for Thaecia and the World Assembly

• Aggressively endotarting from Day 1 and encouraging endorsements of all people in the region who have a World Assembly nation.
• Creating a World Assembly Mission in Thaecia as a precursor to a full office, seeking staffers who are willing to engage with draft proposals and proposals in the queue with the goals of: encouraging Thaecians to write proposals in the World Assembly, casting informed votes with the backing of the populace, and providing information to all WA voters on most, if not all, proposals which come to vote.
• Encouraging Thaecians to get active in the World Assembly community both n authoring and in simply observing and taking steps to ensure that at least one new Thaecian is an author by July 1.
• Working with our Consortium allies to create, as best as possible, a World Assembly voting bloc, as our current Delegate bloc would control about ~1,000 votes in the Assembly, enough to swing votes on close proposals.
• Continuing the effort to get The Bigtopia commended and potentially working to get other prominent Thaecians commended, or condemned as is their preference, as well.
• Putting the needs of my region first above other loyalties such that I will always seek to vote the way the region suggests and that if I cannot, in good conscience, do so, I will make a public statement explaining why.



Hulldom, at a Senate debate in October.

My Plan for Thaecia

• Providing a support and a voice for the Prime Minister, supporting their actions as best I can.
• Providing scrutiny for awards nominations while also seeking to make the Order of Thaecia the pinnacle of success and not simply a reward for long-term service.
• Working to create, either on my own initiative, or otherwise, an offsite forum site for the region.
• Supporting new Roleplay Legislation going forward in addition to IC Legislation.
• Providing support for a renewal of political parties, though I will choose to remain officially independent.
• Drafting, alongside the rest of the Government, a report our emissaries will circulate at the end of the month.
• Creating, via executive action, a Thaecian Card Guild and puppet region for card farming. This will be accompanied, when Season 3 is created, with a spreadsheet of all Thaecian Season 3 cards and their values.
• Working alongside the Culture Ministry to create things like Game Nights, an official Thaecian Minecraft server, movie nights, and an official return of Thaecasts along with other shows and events.
• Generally too working with the Moderation team to reform the Discord, cut down on bloat, and up the fun.

As a parting note, let me say thank you to all of you who've taken the time to read this dispatch. I hope that over the next few weeks, I can win your vote and hopefully win you over to my vision of a new dawn for Thaecia as well. While we have a long ways to go to achieve our goals and a long way to go to achieve our goals period, I am confident that with your support, we can absolutely achieve all of them. We can make our dreams of a Thaecia engaged with the rest of the world and a Thaecia who is a leader a reality. I just hope that over these next few weeks that my vision of a Thaecia moving forward will distinguish itself from everyone else.

For A New Dawn,
~ Hulldom

Brototh for President - February 2021 || Revitalize, Restore, Reform || Raising the Bar for Thaecia - Vote Brototh

Brototh for President -- Winter 2021
Revitalize, Restore, Reform
Remember to upvote the dispatch!! ^^

Thus spoke Godsinia bold Brototh said,
Vote me for President.1 (Go Down Moses)
Og det' forår ikke vinter

Did I just reuse the same manifesto format? Yeah.
Hello there Thaecia! I hope y'all are doing great today, looking at this collection of no context quotes turned manifesto. Seriously guys, seven upvotes from just confirming I'll run? You're great. I hope you will read through all of this manifesto and see why I am running for the office of President. I'm a long term resident of Thaecia, joining on February 6 2019, only 15 days after the foundation of the region, and I have a lot to give back to this region.

To Thaecia, I am Brototh. To others on Discord, you will know me as Cinema. I have recently just finished up a term as Senate Chair and Senator. While regretfully some IRL circumstances that are almost entirely resolved encouraged me to retire, I have come back with a stronger resolve and dedication to serve Thaecia in such a high office. My last two terms as Senator propelled me to the status of most bills worked on2, with several more constitutional amendments, laws and such on the way. You can be sure I've got the experience and know how of our laws and institutions to serve you in this role.

The next four months will be extremely important. We have, in just under the last year, gone from "ugh, Thaecia", to a large and generally more respected UCR with some big friends at our side (not to put down our smaller embassies- ily guys still!), reformed our military, co-operated with regions we'd never thought we would before, gone through hardships internally and come out stronger than we went in, all through a difficult time for all of us. As we continue to adjust to a much more globalist view, with internal changes all the way, it is crucial our next President, Prime Minister and all other offices are led by visionary, respected, hardworking and dedicated personnel. I cannot stress how much I love this region, which is why I am working to make it as good as it can be.

I've had the pleasure of serving you as Secretary of Defence recently- with some troubles along the way, we have made a successful military organisation and I have been able to speak and co-operate with new international friends. Some people didn't think it could be done- but the military is seeing a great wave of activity thanks to all participants, our friends abroad, military officers and my friend Andusre.

To achieve my goal of President, and bring everything I can to the office and this region, I need your help and support. You'll see my manifesto and a full comprehensive list of my qualifications just below. I am proud to say I am running for President and hope you will strongly consider voting Brototh for President of Thaecia.

> Deputy Secretary / Deputy Minister of Roleplay: 19/05/2020 - Present
> Member of Parliament (first inaugurated 4th August 2019)
> Senator (first inaugurated 25th January 2020)
> Dep Admin Factbook Administrator (started 7th August 2020)
> Chairman of the Senate (won 31st August 2020)
> Secretary of Defence (confirmed 20th December 2020)

Manifesto
Senator Brototh standing by the Law Registry they just updated with a new law they wrote.
  1. Continue the regional military. We've seen a lot of support here- there's no contest. I hope to get the military a more similar relation to the roleplay, as we have seen recently that informing people that aren't even involved in the military causes risk to operation security (opsec), however I still support Senatorial oversight on the army.

  2. Continuing the WA Office. Recently we've seen a lot more support for a WA program and WA ministry than ever before. The Culture Ministry has done an excellent job setting up this program, and I hope to get it more involved with the Presidency. Recently I've been active in the WA debate, and I will be glad to integrate this program more with the Presidency as long threatened3 by Presidents past. The Presidency has always been the WAD role- it's time for the President to get more WA involved and make Thaecia a greater name in the WA.

  3. Incentivize endorsing the President and endotarting. Many regions hand out awards for endorsing the World Assembly Delegate and other important roles. We've seen a lot of success of these programs in foreign regions, and I will be setting up a program like this handing out awards, such as badges, to those who endorse the President and other important officials in the region. Endotarting is just as important, and we will be continuing the recent campaign that Andusre and others have spearheaded.

  4. Improve the Order of Thaecia. While not directly a Presidential thing- more in the hands of the legislative, it has been a topic long spoken about by Presidential candidates. As I have said before, the Order of Thaecia has become a retirement badge. While everyone who got it certainly has the qualifications for it, the motivation for being nominated is retiring. I plan to, similar to the system I have said above, hand out awards for Thaecians who have made special contributions in the last month. Hopefully, this will make the Order more special while still rewarding everyone for their contributions.

  5. Work closely with our newfound international allies. I will make sure that Thaecia formally and legally joins the Consortium via an international treaty signed by the Senate. While I'm not on board with the idea of a WA Voting Bloc and would rather put Thaecia's interests and the people's vote first, which we will opt-out of if there is one, I am open to any other form of international co-operation with our friends abroad.

  6. Pursue closer diplomatic relations with other regions. The President is often seen by outsiders as the one who calls all the shots. As President and face of the region, I can assure you I will be cool, calm and collected, working close with the Foreign Affairs Minister and others- as I have done as Secretary of Defence- to continue this growth of international friendship brought on by the FAM and crew in the last few months. We want more diplomatic relations with more regions, and to grow a closer bond with them and establish embassies and cooperate more. The more close friends we have, the merrier.

  7. Work closely with the Cabinet. I am a long term Islonia supporter, however I will be glad to work with a Cabinet formed by any other Prime Minister. The Executive branch can only succeed when it has strong cohesion- and I am prepared to work with the Cabinet as much as I can so the government can successfully fulfil her mandate. I will also make sure to work closely with the legislative- being part of it for so long I'm glad to lend them and any hopeful authors my assistance in writing a bill.

  8. Improve Discord welcoming. I had an interesting conversation with Toerana V yesterday. He raised a point that upon being welcomed to the Discord, he did not recieve any form of introduction into the region, which he rightfully believes can be confusing to newcomers, who join through Discord rather than the more conventional means of the RMB, where Zon island does an excellent job. The discord already has Andusre and a few others introducing newcomers to the WA, getting them to endorse TMS, and sometimes dropping a Thaecia Simplified dispatch, but it ends there. An IC body must be doing the welcoming, not a loose and rather unorganised gathering. We complain a lot about inactivity, perhaps a good way to resolve it would be by introducing newcomers to our full form of government and culture through the Discord, which is more interactive and immediate, than the RMB, which is not. This is something I plan to do regardless of electoral victory or not (although it will be harder to set up an IC body if I do not win).

Thank you all for taking the time to read my platform. Again, I hope you will strongly consider voting me for President. If there are any questions you want to ask me, then know that I am ready to take any questions. Vote for whoever's policies you believe in- don't vote based on popularity and endorsements, which is why there is no endorsement section here- as long as you remember to vote!!

1- Korsinia did not actually say that or endorse me, I just wanted another cool song lyric.
2- Link to the Thaecian legislative leaderboard- may be slightly out of date.
3- As far as I can tell, every Thaecian president has promised this but have not personally set it up nor run it. I commend The Marconian State for helping to grow this platform though, I appreciate he listens to our votes and casts his accordingly.

Have a good day, Thaecia! I am having a great one!

The Unofficial fact of the day: The longest music performance in the world is being performed in the city of Halberstadt in Germany: John Cage’s composition for organ ORGAN2/ASLSP – As SLow aS Possible – began playing on September 5, 2001 and will play until the year 2640! I wonder who can listen the whole performance...

Hello Thaecia!

I’m running for the Senate this election so it would be really great if you could upvote and endorse my campaign to support me, I would really appreciate your support! Let’s bring effective and necessary change to the region!

Pap Sculgief for the Senate

Introduction
I'm Pap Sculgief, but you can call me Pap. I'm running for the Senate this by-election after taking a brief break from the gamee, however I'm back and will put my all into serving the region. Hopefully, you all have a general knowledge of me, but in case you didn't know, I've been in the region since February last, and have been trying my best to help the region grow and progress in multiple positions in the region and so I feel that I am the right fit for the Senate.

My experience
7 months of Congressional experience
Since the February election last year in which I was elected to the House of Commons, I have spent a collective total of 7 months in Congress in Thaecia. I started off in the House of Commons in which I learnt how the region worked and built up my reputation. I then was elected to the Senate in July 2020 in a by-election, and joined an amazing group of Senators in creating one of the most efficient and effective Senates we’ve seen. We got through bills quickly, while making sure that every bill that came our way was properly scrutinised before we thought about passing it.

Mark made on Thaecian Law
In the more recent bills passed by Congress, you can see my name on many bills as either a sponsor, amender, or even author. During my time in Congress, I learnt the trade, and used it effectively, amending bills to ensure that they are the best they can be, or even writing a bill that creates a completely new procedure in the region. You can see my name on many bills including, unfortunately, the House Committees Act, but also the Executive Branch Impeachable Offences Act, and you can see the bill that I authored - LR.041 - The Thaecian Petitioning Act. I don’t intend to stop there and I know how to write an effective bill, meaning I’m ready for the job!

My Policies
Efficiency and Activity
7 months in the legislature, and I never missed a vote. I want this to stay the same this term. I'm already active in and around the region, so you can trust me to stay active and always put my point of view in. Efficiency will also be at the forefront of me and my campaign, I will focus on making sure that bills are passed quickly, by putting my views across quickly and not proposing unnecessary amendments that slow down business. While speed is a focus, it doesn’t mean that I won’t read everything carefully and make sure that bills are the best that they can be.

Reforming the procedures of the chambers of congress
As a Senator, I intend to amend the House and Senate Procudure Acts. There is lots of unnecessary things in it that need to be removed. For example, why do we have a Shadow Speaker and Deputy Speakers? They are remnants of our party-centric past and one of them needs to go. I also don’t get why caucuses are mentioned in the bills, again, something from our past, where parties were key parts of our political system. These bits need to be removed to get rid of unnecessary bureaucracy.

Properly define a regional emergency
Our constitution mentions a regional emergency and defines it very poorly, exposing it to manipulation if a situation arises that needs it. A regional emergency should be properly defined so we know what exactly what to do in the case of an emergency. As a Senator, I will seek to amend the constitution to ensure that a regional emergency is properly defined and the procedure to calling an emergency is also properly defined. This will ensure future stability.

Working closely with fellow colleagues and the public
As a Senator, I will no doubt be looking to work with fellow Senators on bill ideas or potential amendments to maximise my ability in the chamber. I did this in my July-October 2020 term and it proved incredibly successful, and so I am clearly capable of this. As well as working with Senators, I want to work with the MPs across the pond and the general public, because they are the ones who are able to submit bills to legislature. Working the MPs will be really important, because it will make the legislature more efficient and allow me to understand the views of those working on bills and amendments, and vice versa. The sharing of ideas is very valuable.

Closing Words
The Senate is a tough chamber to work in, and I know that, but I feel that I am the right fit for this chamber. My experience and record over the last year proves my congressional capability, showing that I am ready to step up once again and take a seat in the chamber. And also, to all the new members of the region, if you want to get involved, run for an office! I can’t stress how important it is to run for an office, because if you do get elected you get invaluable experience that provides you the stepping stone to you getting involved more! So try it! Go on! Anyway to finish off, please vote me to the Senate this election. Thanks![/b]

If you do feel like publicly showing your support for me this campaign, drop me a DM or TG saying you want to endorse me!

Hello! I am Rivogna, and I am running for the House of Commons. Although I was in the House of Commons once, I am still quite unfamiliar with my surroundings, which is why I am running. I am running this round because I would like to learn from all of you. I want to take this opportunity to listen to you; to connect with you.
Despite being a relatively new person in the Thaecian government, I do have a few policies to advocate, such as:

  • A reduction of the House of Commons to about 11 seats. There should be no disagreements about this. If we have fewer seats for people to compete for, that increases the liveliness and competition of Thaecian elections. To ensure competition, and therefore maximum effort from politicians, we must reduce the House by any means necessary. By doing this, we could also be (almost) removing potential incompetence.

  • Keeping the Thaecian military. For the sake of our interests, we must keep the Thaecian military. The military is an engaging organization where we can bash the fash as we damn well, please. People have a right to have fun, you know? Not to mention how it generates activity for us.

  • Forming greater bonds with our foreign allies. In Prime Minister Bigtopia's administration, the Foreign Affairs team is pursuing more meaningful and useful bonds with our foreign allies. We must continue cooperating with our allies, such as preparing raiding operations, hosting late-night festivals, and doing many more activities together. Cooperation would be another step to make Thaecia even more lively and interesting.

To push these policies forward, I shall support my colleagues in any way possible whenever they write a bill that makes Thaecia better. I will also launch more campaigns to convince my colleagues to do the same. Thaecia is all that matters here; the point is that I shall help make Thaecia better in any way I can. I will cooperate with my colleagues and all of you to see what I can do. Thank you for reading. :)

XERNON: Upper Ontario and Hudson Bay, you're under arrest.

ANDUSRE (to reformist goons): Move. Leave Server button is right over there. Stay quiet.

ONTARIO: What in NationStates are you thinking?

XERNON: We're thinking we'll take you both to the High Court and charge you with conspiracy to overthrow the Thaecian government.

ONTARIO: Try and take me in. You won't make it to #general.

BRADONIA: That's exactly what I said.

XERNON: This is a lawful criminal case. If you resist, you will be banjected.

ONTARIO: I see. We all get banjected in a blaze of glory.

XERNON: If that's how it works out, that's fine with me. How about you, Andy?

ANDUSRE: Fine by me.

BRADONIA: Oh Zoopolis.

ONTARIO: I envy you, boys. Having nothing to lose must be liberating. Must feel pretty good.

XERNON: Yes, it does.

ONTARIO: Suppose you did have something to lose. What would you do then? Suppose, for instance, I had a corrupt B/C officer ready to banject Korsinia right now. Would you still be so brave?

XERNON: You don't.

ONTARIO: I'm telling you I do.

XERNON: You're a liar.

ONTARIO: I have many faults, but I'm not a liar. Lisbane…has Korsinia. You know Lisbane.

XERNON: You're lying. He's left the Discord.

ONTARIO: He rejoined. Came right to my DMs to plead for your residency stat. You have a good Foreign Affairs Minister there. He loves you very much. Too much.

XERNON: Prove it. Prove you have him.

ONTARIO: I could. But I won't. I want you to believe me.

ANDUSRE: It's obvious, Xernon, he's lying.

ONTARIO: Am I? If you think so, go ahead and try to bring me in. You'll be banjected, so you won't know what happens to Korsinia. But it won't be pretty.

ANDUSRE: Lying.

ONTARIO: On my mother's grave. Drop your ban hammers...and Korsinia won't be harmed in any way.

Now, this is a political post from me after a long long time. BRACE...

Hello, I am Indian Genius, the Party Premier of New Thaecia Now! Here's our manifesto:

New Thaecia Now!

Foreword

Over the past few months, I've watched as our great region has slid into decline. The death of party politics, initially heralded as a crowning achievement that would elevate its political discourse, instead led the region astray. Now the bland and inoffensive triumphs over the bold and spirited, often with pitiful amounts of votes and little enthusiasm to try new things. That's why I've decided to resist this backsliding by forming New Thaecia Now.

-Rhyssua

Who Are We?

New Thaecia Now is a catch-all, populist party dedicated to increasing regional activity and engagement, both in politics and culture. Everything we support, everything we stand for is designed to make the region more interesting, our elections more competitive, and just plain fun.


Domestic Policy


-We support decreasing the House. Seriously this should be a no-brainer. Right now, MPs are being elected with only 2 votes. Combined with the astounding number of low-effort, "safe" candidacies, this makes our elections uncompetitive and uninteresting. Should the House be decreased to 11, the Senate should similarly be decreased to 7, in order to preserve the distinction between the chambers.

-We support the increased presence of RP legislation in congress. The vast majority of bills presented today are either amended versions of existing laws, useless bureaucracy, or covering the minutiae of Thaecian law. While some of these bills can be important, they certainly aren't interesting to debate if the legislature's rmbs are any indication. While we of course support the passage of the Yogurt Viscosity Act, creative RP legislation has the potential to spark engaging debate and make being a legislator more than just busywork.

-We support the concept of RP Dependence. Many months ago, an RP independence movement cut it off from the rest of the region. The dispute, principally due to the Reformist debacle, ended long ago. By treating the RP as something tangential rather than integral to the region, activity and enthusiasm in the RP is lowered. An increased RP presence in the region can also help bolster recruitment and engagement for the region. To that end, New Thaecia Now proposes creating a nationstates forum roleplay. While the format is a bit unwieldy, a Thaecia-only thread on the forums can generate much-needed visibility for the RP and the region as a whole.

-An active, visible Culture Ministry is essential to our regional identity and promoting activity. The Ministry as a whole is a sleeping giant, with the power to invigorate the community. It should remain a Ministry, and should be staffed with active, capable people. With public consultation, the Ministry can revive Thaecian culture.

Foreign Policy


-Overall, New Thaecia Now leans globalist. While our government should of course prioritize the needs and desires of Thaecians, we've come a long way since our scrappy youth. Cooperation with other regions on events such as Paradoxical, joint military operations, and even the World Assembly all enhance Thaecia's reputation on nationstates. Furthermore, it provides opportunities for Thaecians to get involved in the region and the game as a whole, convincing them to remain active.

-We wholeheartedly support the Thaempirial Army. It's popular, a lot of fun for the people involved, and sets Thaecia apart from other UCRs in terms of recruitment. Past incidents are nothing more than growing pains in a new part of Thaecia, and will improve as time goes on. New Thaecia Now believes the Thaempirial Army should remain independent, however, and it should not conduct operations during elections.

-While the WA-wide recruitment telegrams had an undeniably positive effect on our growth as a region, future "tg nukes" could decimate our foreign relations. However, there is an alternative. Manual recruitment is very promising, and easy for all citizens to do with a few simple instructions and a format to copy. New Thaecia Now will encourage all Thaecians to manually recruit, and supports it as an alternative to more damaging methods.

Legal Policy


-Our judicial branch is in need of some drastic reform. We need active, capable justices who understand our constitution and legal code to replace those retiring.

-The court procedures were created with the best of intentions, but they need a serious rework to fix redundancies and make it an easier read. Furthermore, at least parts of the procedures should have some basis in actual law (such as the legal definitions/limits of pleas and some guide for punishments). Once in congress, NTN intends to pass a law containing this in addition to broad definitions of civil and criminal suits, designed to operate alongside the new legal code currently making its way through the legislature.

-Furthermore, the next court should undo several unwritten precedents that slow the branch and hurt the region. These include: only proceeding with one case at a time (even if that one case is moving far too slowly), rejecting cases based on authority to file (which will jointly be addressed in the above bill), not moving on cases based on a vacancy in the court (should the case be urgent, it needs to be addressed, even if the Court only stands at two justices).

-Lastly, a constitutional amendment setting a six-month term limit for justices could ensure that their performance is held to a high standard by the legislature. At the end of a Justice's term, they should have to face reconfirmation, allowing the legislature to hold them accountable without using the unwieldy device of impeachment.

-NTN believes that the constitution should include a preamble to state the document's goals, and believes the constitution itself is in need of a drastic overhaul to fix inconsistencies and poorly-thought out procedures.

Party Charter


-All members of New Thaecia Now will be equal partners within the party.

-Once a month, there will be an election for Chairman of the Party. The Chairman shall be the main party organizer, holding primary elections, organizing campaigns, and developing strategy.

-Once a month, there will be an election for Premier of the Party. The Premier is the ideological leader of the party, who is responsible for getting the New Thaecia Now agenda enacted by the region and recruiting new members.

-Any changes to the Party Charter must be approved by two-thirds of members.

INTRODUCTION
Hi, I'm Primo Order,
I'm in Thaecia from April 2020 and I want to do more for this fantastic region;
I am already trying to improve this region as a volunteer in various sectors, recruiter, soldier, Honorable Attorney (member of Thaecian Bar Association) and member of Thaecian Citizenship Verification Team, but I feel that it is not enough, I feel that I want to do more and it is with that that I have the honor and the joy to announce that: I will run for the general elections of The House of Commons of February 2021 as a member of New Thaecia Now!
I am really willing and eager to improve change this region for the better, I will leverage every single day as a member of parliament to improve and learn more and thus serve all of you better by gaining more and more experience.

Personal Informations!
-I'm
italian, so I use the LinkCET, Central European Time!
-As you will notice my favourite color is red!
MY OPINION ABOUT THAECIA
In a year that I am in the (declining) region I have really seen a lot of improvement and I believe that if we we're able to do what we have done in one year in my entire term as a member of parliament with my support and involvement we will be able to do much more and make this region shine like a diamond among the multity of regions that exist in NationStates and I believe that the only way to achieve this is to really put the maximum effort into it and not waste any second on our layout.
FOCUS ON POLICIES
During my term there will be two topics on which I will focus my work:
1.Strengthening the Democracy; Yes, you heard right, I think that we need to boost it because with the help of my Strengthening the Democracy plan, I'll make sure that everyone's voices are heard;
2.Maybe you've already figured it out, it's Decreasing the Bureaucracy; the bureaucracy slows down our work and, eliminating a few unnecessary procedures, we will be even more efficient, to return to serve you better and to improve the region. An example of what I would approve as a law that decrease the bureaucracy is the Congressional Reduction Act and all the laws related to it.
3.As my slogan says,(New People, New Horizons!) Pro-Newcomers Laws, because in this period I have seen how difficult it is for a newcomer to understand everything, go look for documents, read them all, have someone explain them to them and find them when they don't find them; I spent a week like this with a newcomer (Clarance heheh) who wanted to know everything about thaecia (history, politics, elections, laws, constitution etc.) and it seemed to be at war: clearly something needs to be done, that's why I personally support and promote this type of policy.
PROPOSALS OF LAW
In the previous paragraph I talked about the main topics on which I will focus my work in the House of Commons, but now I will go into the specifics and present my bills:

Proposals To Reach New Horizons

Topic

Reduction of Congress (Congressional Reduction Act)

Decreasing the Bureaucracy

Re-structure and Re-design of ministries (like Judiciary Reform Act)

Decreasing the Bureaucracy/Strengthening the Democracy

Strengthening the L.R.004 Position Restriction Act

Strengthening the Democracy

Outlaw military operations during elections (amend L.R.040 Military Commission Act)

Strengthening the Democracy

Re-structure of the Newcomers Introduction System

Pro-Newcomers Laws

CONCLUDING...
Having said that, I urge all of you to vote for me because the first step to reach our goal is to insert new faces in our politics because many of them really have many original and interesting ideas but not having the same experience as other names already known in Thaecia do not come highly regarded or in some cases have issues with the disorganised introduction of them in Thaecian Politics.

Rhyssuan Peoples
Rhyssuan Peoples for House of Commons! Again!

Who am I?

The short answer is: I'm Rhyssuan Peoples/Rhyssua

But you probably don't want the short answer, so here's the long one (my resume, if you will).

-I was an Associate Justice of the High Court from its inception until late August 2019 I believe.

-After Saint Ryvern's resignation, I was confirmed as Chief Justice, where I served from then until late March/early April 2020.

-Then, President Titanne approached me with an urgent request: he needed an Electoral Commissioner to replace Terentiland, who was retiring. I figured that I might as well step up and serve the region I loved, so I agreed.

-I didn't particularly like being EC, but I made sure that the transition from me to Dizgovzy was as smooth as possible. After briefly serving as an Assistant Commissioner, I ran for House of Commons in May and served one term as an MP and Deputy Speaker.

What do I stand for?

-As you probably know, I'm the founder and chairman of New Thaecia Now. As a result, many of the ideas and policies I'm campaigning on are reflected in NTN's official manifesto, found here:

nation=rhyssuan_peoples/detail=factbook/id=1505109

However, there are some areas where I deviate from the party. High priorities that I will put front and center as NTN's House Caucus leader and MP are displayed in the next section; the rest of these are to help you get a general profile of me as a candidate.

-I'm pro-military. NTN was founded upon the desire to engage its citizens and draw potential recruits. The Thaempirial Army is a lot of fun for the people involved and raises our profile on the website. While maintaining the balance between operational security and congressional oversight is tricky, it's an essential part of our democracy and an effort must be made by both TEA and the legislature to be accountable, forthright, and communicative.

-I support an 11-7 congress (11 MPs, 7 Senators). It's critical to making our elections more competitive, and while I have some misgiving about trying to force through a congressional reduction right before an election, it's still sorely needed. I say 11-7 to preserve the differences between the chambers (my inner bicameralist shining through I guess).

-I support all the things that everyone else supports, but while others might stretch this out into half their manifesto I'll keep it brief. Rule of law, equality, liberty, etc. I mean seriously, who doesn't support this stuff?

What will I do if elected?

-Pass the Yogurt Viscosity Act. It's time our yogurt received proper regulation and oversight; I don't want my yogurt to have the consistency of either soup or cheese. It's time to give this region the yogurt it deserves!

-Work with the High Court to fix our judiciary and legal code. I wholeheartedly support Senator Brototh's proposed revision of the legal code. Furthermore, recent events have shown our judiciary is in need of a drastic overhaul. While much of this needs to be accomplished within the High Court (like ending precedents that prevent the justices from hearing cases), there's work the legislature needs to do as well. The Court Procedures need a revamp, and sections of them should be encoded into law, such as the definitions of pleas and a guide to sentencing.

-Support the Culture Ministry in any way I can. While Antenion is doing a great job as CM, I firmly believe that the Culture Ministry is a sleeping giant in terms of regional activity, participation, and fun. Any way I can help from the House, I will do so. Regional media, contests, games, and other things all create a stronger sense of community within the region.

-Be as transparent as possible. "But Rhyssua!" I'm sure you're saying. "The government is already transparent!"

Well yes. However, for every bill that comes to the table, I'll publish my opinions on not only the HoC/Senate rmb, but also the discord and regional rmb. This would encourage discussion amongst ordinary citizens, and help people know what we're up to in the House/Senate.

-Be a capable, active, and productive legislator!

Our candidates for Senate are:

Saint Songbird

Chipmunker for MP!

Introductions!

Hello world!!! It is I, Chipmunker, Saint Songbird, Titanne, your friendly neighborhood unicorn, back again to run for the House! For those of you that don't know me, it's a pleasure meeting you here in this fabulously sparkly factbook, wouldn't you say? For those of you that do, please hold your applause (or jeers) until the end. Anyways, here's a little bit about me: I joined NationStates and Thaecia two years ago and ever since then, I've been working to improve the region for everyone, one glitter-bomb at a time. The highlights of my service include a term as President, a term as Culture Minister, a long career in the Senate and also Education Minister (where I totally didn't infect all of you with unicorn and donut propaganda). But that's only the NS me. In real life, I enjoy good movies, specifically Marvel ones, playing Xbox with my friends, and running. I also like eating. A lot. Don't worry though, I'm just as fabulous IRL!

Why Am I Running?

To provide unicorns for everyone and open up a donut petting zoo! Whoops, I think I got that backwards. To provide donuts for everyone and open up a unicorn petting zoo. There we go. Really though, I love Thaecia and I'd love to continue serving it (even if just for two weeks) to help improve it and make it a better and more dazzling place for everyone. I promise that if you elect me to be your unicorn in congress, I'll debate on every bill, vote in every vote, and make sure I do so with the best interests of Thaecia in mind. This place is important to me, it's like a home, and I'd really like to serve her well, and the House is a great place to do that, where we so desparately need calm, stable, and experienced leadership in the face of inactive or unqualified members.

What Will I Do If Elected?

As I said before, I will make sure I attend every debate and every vote in the most fabulous fashion possible, giving you the voice you so clearly deserve in Congress but the voice you've been cheated of when you elected inactive MPs. I will continue to push for House reduction and make sure to propose amendments to the bills that come before me so that they are as legally sound and useful as they can possibly be. As MP, I will also work to cut out and cut down on useless bills, amendments, and poorly written laws so that the House and our law registry are as efficient and sound as possible. Here's a list of other things I'll support.

-Opening up a unicorn petting zoo for all to enjoy!
-Providing donuts to all Thaecian citizens every Friday!
-Finally banning that wretched Andusre from the region! #BanDusre!
-I will impeach Xernon, too! That evil ex-president!
-Open up embassies with Auctoritan Commonwealth! They're our natural allies!
-Unban TRP! Come on now, it's been a year and half! I'm suureeee they've changed!
-Reconcile with Enadia and the Assembly of Regions! It's about damn time!
-Close embassies with TRR, TEP, and XKI! We don't need them!
-Glitter-fy the Thaecian capitol and coat it in rainbow sparkles! Show the world how fabulous we are!
-Conspire with the Gay Cookie PAC to rig all elections and implement our draconian agenda!
-Mandate that every Thaecian pays double the taxes to me so that I can distribute it to my fellow unicorn friends!
-Yogurt! Viscosity! Now! I see you Rhyssuan Peoples! Keep on fighting the good fight!
-Work with the current president Xernon to close down Islonia's wicked WA center!
-Ban Titanne! He's pretending to be me and I don't like it!
-Remove all restrictions from the military so that Brototh can finally become our dictator!
-Steal Chick-Fil-A's recipe so I can eat good chicken sandwiches without feeling guilty!
-Engage in espionage with our allies in Karma!
-Lock Hulldom in Brototh's closet! I don't know how he got out!
-Mandate that Dendrobium gets no sleep so we can all enjoy their typos when they're tired!
-Ban all people from Pennsylvania from the region. The state is mean to me and it's not funny anymore.
-Install Snowflame as forever-speaker so that he forever controls the words we say!
-Pass the Brototh Gender Reveal Act of 2021 and finally find out who's behind that tag!
-Petition NS Mods to revive King of lisseum and retake the (un)holy land for Cerdenia!
-No more New Jersey! Sorry The Marconian State, but it had to be done.
-Implement a law mandating that we follow in the tradition of ruining UCR Con for ourselves!
-Attempt to infiltrate TSP's WA voting in the same way our role model Snowflame did!
-Forcibly take over NSToday so we can put Korsinia in all of the Power20 spots!
-Rejoin the Regions Assembly, then leave the Assembly of Regions, gosh darn it!
-SPARKLE KITTIES FOR EVERYONE!!!
-Bring Thaecia under the influence of Kyorgia and the Kyosson family!

What Do I Think Of The Other Candidates?

Marvinville - OMG I LOVE MARV SO MUCH HE'S ONE OF MY BBs!
Dykataar - Meh.

No, really, though. Marv is awesome and he'll be a great MP if elected, superbly qualified and wicked smart. Dykataar seems cool enough, and enthusiastic and involved, so I think he'd be a good MP too. May the best Shiba/Person/Unicorn-Chipmunk Creature win, my fellow candidates!

Endorsements!

No.

The End!

Wait, what, it can't be the end yet! It feels like we started on this long, sparkly, journey of a dispatch just such a short while ago! Huh, well, I guess the better a thing is, the sooner it must come to an end. Anyways, there you have it, Thaecia. I'm running for Congress (Yes, again, and seriously this time! I've purged the Trumpist parodies from my head!) I hope I've laid out a persuasive case for you to vote for me, I mean, I'd really love it if you would! What's not to like! Sparkles, unicorns, donuts, banning Andusre... oh and also all that actual serious policy stuff, like carefully considering bills and voting and debating every time I can. That stuff is important too, I guess. So. Here we are. At the end of yet another Titanne/Chipmunker/Saint Songbird campaign dispatch. The first serious one that I'll hopefully make it through in... well, a year at this point. Let's make sure we have a high turnout election and get people engaged in our democracy again. Let's make sure we put competent and capable legislators in the House. Let's make sure we put a unicorn in the house! Me!

Dykataar

As you can see, our candidates range from old and experienced, to new and ambitious. Candidates like Rhyssuan Peoples and Saint Songbird are old vanguards of Thaecia, proving from time and again that they are extremely important and precious for the region. Whereas, candidates like Nova Anglicum, Dykataar, Primo Order, Clarance, are the representatives of fresh and fair blooms of cherry who want to achieve something and make their mark in the history of the region. New Thaecia Now! is an extremely diverse party with diverse views and we believe in working in tandem for the collective good of this region. So, I would like to request you to vote for the candidates belonging to our party.

A regional renaissance, a New Thaecia Now!

Hello there Thaecia! I hope y'all are doing great today, looking at this collection of no context quotes turned manifesto. Seriously guys, seven upvotes from just confirming I'll run? You're great. I hope you will read through all of this manifesto and see why I am running for the office of President. I'm a long term resident of Thaecia, joining on February 6 2019, only 15 days after the foundation of the region, and I have a lot to give back to this region.

To Thaecia, I am Brototh. To others on Discord, you will know me as Cinema. I have recently just finished up a term as Senate Chair and Senator. While regretfully some IRL circumstances that are almost entirely resolved encouraged me to retire, I have come back with a stronger resolve and dedication to serve Thaecia in such a high office. My last two terms as Senator propelled me to the status of most bills worked on2, with several more constitutional amendments, laws and such on the way. You can be sure I've got the experience and know how of our laws and institutions to serve you in this role.

The next four months will be extremely important. We have, in just under the last year, gone from "ugh, Thaecia", to a large and generally more respected UCR with some big friends at our side (not to put down our smaller embassies- ily guys still!), reformed our military, co-operated with regions we'd never thought we would before, gone through hardships internally and come out stronger than we went in, all through a difficult time for all of us. As we continue to adjust to a much more globalist view, with internal changes all the way, it is crucial our next President, Prime Minister and all other offices are led by visionary, respected, hardworking and dedicated personnel. I cannot stress how much I love this region, which is why I am working to make it as good as it can be.

I've had the pleasure of serving you as Secretary of Defence recently- with some troubles along the way, we have made a successful military organisation and I have been able to speak and co-operate with new international friends. Some people didn't think it could be done- but the military is seeing a great wave of activity thanks to all participants, our friends abroad, military officers and my friend Andusre.

To achieve my goal of President, and bring everything I can to the office and this region, I need your help and support. You'll see my manifesto and a full comprehensive list of my qualifications just below. I am proud to say I am running for President and hope you will strongly consider voting Brototh for President of Thaecia.

Manifesto
Senator Brototh standing by the Law Registry they just updated with a new law they wrote.
  1. Continue the regional military. We've seen a lot of support here- there's no contest. I hope to get the military a more similar relation to the roleplay, as we have seen recently that informing people that aren't even involved in the military causes risk to operation security (opsec), however I still support Senatorial oversight on the army.

  2. Continuing the WA Office. Recently we've seen a lot more support for a WA program and WA ministry than ever before. The Culture Ministry has done an excellent job setting up this program, and I hope to get it more involved with the Presidency. Recently I've been active in the WA debate, and I will be glad to integrate this program more with the Presidency as long threatened3 by Presidents past. The Presidency has always been the WAD role- it's time for the President to get more WA involved and make Thaecia a greater name in the WA.

  3. Incentivize endorsing the President and endotarting. Many regions hand out awards for endorsing the World Assembly Delegate and other important roles. We've seen a lot of success of these programs in foreign regions, and I will be setting up a program like this handing out awards, such as badges, to those who endorse the President and other important officials in the region. Endotarting is just as important, and we will be continuing the recent campaign that Andusre and others have spearheaded.

  4. Improve the Order of Thaecia. While not directly a Presidential thing- more in the hands of the legislative, it has been a topic long spoken about by Presidential candidates. As I have said before, the Order of Thaecia has become a retirement badge. While everyone who got it certainly has the qualifications for it, the motivation for being nominated is retiring. I plan to, similar to the system I have said above, hand out awards for Thaecians who have made special contributions in the last month. Hopefully, this will make the Order more special while still rewarding everyone for their contributions.

  5. Work closely with our newfound international allies. I will make sure that Thaecia formally and legally joins the Consortium via an international treaty signed by the Senate. While I'm not on board with the idea of a WA Voting Bloc and would rather put Thaecia's interests and the people's vote first, which we will opt-out of if there is one, I am open to any other form of international co-operation with our friends abroad.

  6. Pursue closer diplomatic relations with other regions. The President is often seen by outsiders as the one who calls all the shots. As President and face of the region, I can assure you I will be cool, calm and collected, working close with the Foreign Affairs Minister and others- as I have done as Secretary of Defence- to continue this growth of international friendship brought on by the FAM and crew in the last few months. We want more diplomatic relations with more regions, and to grow a closer bond with them and establish embassies and cooperate more. The more close friends we have, the merrier.

  7. Work closely with the Cabinet. I am a long term Islonia supporter, however I will be glad to work with a Cabinet formed by any other Prime Minister. The Executive branch can only succeed when it has strong cohesion- and I am prepared to work with the Cabinet as much as I can so the government can successfully fulfil her mandate. I will also make sure to work closely with the legislative- being part of it for so long I'm glad to lend them and any hopeful authors my assistance in writing a bill.

  8. Improve Discord welcoming. I had an interesting conversation with Toerana V yesterday. He raised a point that upon being welcomed to the Discord, he did not recieve any form of introduction into the region, which he rightfully believes can be confusing to newcomers, who join through Discord rather than the more conventional means of the RMB, where Zon island does an excellent job. The discord already has Andusre and a few others introducing newcomers to the WA, getting them to endorse TMS, and sometimes dropping a Thaecia Simplified dispatch, but it ends there. An IC body must be doing the welcoming, not a loose and rather unorganised gathering. We complain a lot about inactivity, perhaps a good way to resolve it would be by introducing newcomers to our full form of government and culture through the Discord, which is more interactive and immediate, than the RMB, which is not. This is something I plan to do regardless of electoral victory or not (although it will be harder to set up an IC body if I do not win).

Thank you all for taking the time to read my platform. Again, I hope you will strongly consider voting me for President. If there are any questions you want to ask me, then know that I am ready to take any questions. Vote for whoever's policies you believe in- don't vote based on popularity and endorsements, which is why there is no endorsement section here- as long as you remember to vote!!

1- Korsinia did not actually say that or endorse me, I just wanted another cool song lyric.
2- Link to the Thaecian legislative leaderboard- may be slightly out of date.
3- As far as I can tell, every Thaecian president has promised this but have not personally set it up nor run it. I commend The Marconian State for helping to grow this platform though, I appreciate he listens to our votes and casts his accordingly.
