Troll nation, part of a wave of spam nations that the fellow seemingly has given up on doing now at the present moment.
I came up with 2 new EU4 nations based on CK3 nations: The Kirghiz Khanate and Khazaria.
Hear me out:
The Holy Regency of the Purified Black league of Muhosransk.
To describe the new republic in star wars sequels:
Imagine a small terrorist group in USA constructing 5 nuclear missiles and then using them to obliterate Washington DC, New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Richmond - that's how badly the government of the new republic in sequels was doing.
Plus the government disbands it’s Army and let’s the terrorists do whatever they want

Britain is an island. England is a country on the island of Britain. Incidentally, there's a joke to be made about Tiberius helping turn Britain into a SHEEP. Pigeon Island National Park is not technically an island, as requested, but definitely contains pigeons. Antarctica is not an island. Lakshadweep is 36 islands. Dragon Island is found in either New Zealand or the Balearics and either way has at least a transient pigeon population. King George Island is often populated by "Cape pigeons" but these are actually petrels, not pigeons. Japan is a country, not an island, but Kyushu is an island in Japan where pigeons are found. I have seen the pigeons on Long Island firsthand, ditto Manhattan. When I looked up Emperor Palpaducktine's answer I got a John Williams song. Pigeons are feral in Greenland (somehow). There are definitely pigeons on Oahu. New York City was popular, and there's very little land in NYC that doesn't have pigeons on it regularly. Iceland has feral pigeons and regular visits from other doves. Rose being Rose, I assume she meant the color. Emu commands are not an island, Conflux. Java is covered in pigeons. I found at least two kinds of pigeons on Ulleungdo. The island of Hawaii has pigeons on it. Puerto Rico is definitely rich in pigeons. The Nicobar Islands are an archipelago. Only Melina successfully used the bonus this turn, but at least nobody lost points.

Congratulations to Chi Messenger Services, our Think Stupid/Pigeon champion! A mere one-point lead separates our new champion from Nub the Sregguh, who finishes the game in the place he's held for most of it at this point. Nobody wound up with a negative score- not even Conflux, who would not have been able to without giving up the gimmick anyway. The top ranks turned out really tight- one tweaked bonus or different answer could have changed the outcome of the game. Anyway, on to statistics.
Highest Scoring Team:
Lords of Duckness: 748 points (68 per player)
Disgruntled Barnyard Fowl: 606 points (67.3 per player)
Commander Bella's Puppy Pals: 422 points (70.3 per player)
Tuberous Rabbits: 384 points (76.8 per player)
Tank Chihuahuas: 383 points (63.8 per player)
The Disgruntled Barnyard Fowl were unable to keep up their scoring, allowing the Lords of Duckness to stay ahead of them on total and pass them on average. Commander Bella's Puppy Pals held their respectable place in the middle from mid-game, while the Tuberous Rabbits managed to beat the Tank Chihuahuas by one point, despite being down a player, and came out with the highest average score. The Tank Chihuahuas placed last in both categories- better luck next time.
Highest Scoring Player By Team:
Lords of Duckness: Chi Messenger Services (overall winner)
Disgruntled Barnyard Fowl: Peken (3rd place)
Commander Bella's Puppy Pals: DCI Wesley (4th place)
Tuberous Rabbits: RopakRopak (7th place)
Tank Chihuahuas: Wile E Coyote (11th place)
Interestingly, top scores followed total scores. Usually we have a case of a team either being tiny and extremely strong proportionally, tiny and extremely weak proportionally, or decent-sized and bizarrely average, but none of these happened here. The top ranks were pretty well distributed this time.

DCI Wesley, 4th overall, had the most SHEEPs, while our overall winner, Chi Messenger Services, had three fewer. There were some very large and very small SHEEPs in this game, as well as a high-powered bonus, so this isn't terribly surprising. Four people got no SHEEPs at all... and I can see how all of them got there. Viktor placed second in SHEEPs and 14th in points. This is about as weird as typical Think Different results.
Lords of Duckness: 39 SHEEPs (3.5 per player)
Disgruntled Barnyard Fowl: 32 SHEEPs (3.6 per player)
Commander Bella's Puppy Pals: 28 SHEEPs (4.7 per player)
Tuberous Rabbits: 23 SHEEPs (4.6 per player)
Tank Chihuahuas: 21 SHEEPs (3.5 per player)
While the totals follow the other two team rankings, Commander Bella's Puppy Pals narrowly edged out the Tuberous Rabbits for SHEEPiest Team. And this is despite having one of the zero-SHEEP players on the team. The Disgruntled Barnyard Fowl were better at getting SHEEPs than getting points, apparently, but it's clear how well Commander Bella's Puppy Pals did considering they barely got fewer SHEEPs than the team immediately above them with three fewer players. All right, folks, that's all for April! Come back in May for what will probably be Think Different themed after whatever winds up being the Order's theme for the month. Chi, come find me on Discord for your prize.
- Congratulations to Chi, our Think Pigeon Champion! Full records here -
1. Highest scoring player
2. Highest scoring team (total of players' scores)
3. Highest score within each team (i.e. how you would do if your score was only compared to those of your team)
4. Most SHEEPy player (we'll get to that later, but it means highest number of SHEEP answers)
5. Most SHEEPy team (total SHEEP answers)
So, how does one play Think Stupid? At the bottom of this post will be a link to a Google form, which you will fill out according to an hono(u)r system. The goal is to answer the same way as your comrades, and particularly those in your team. You will receive a number of points equal to the number of people who answered the same as you for each question- provided the answer is incorrect (this is Think Stupid, NOT Think Same). The most popular (wrong) answer is called the SHEEP. Now, suppose you give a correct answer. You then receive negative points equivalent to the number of people who answered that correct answer. So, let's say six people are asked to name something that normally lives in the ocean. Three people say "Dog"; that is the SHEEP answer and they receive 3 points each. One person each respond with "cat" and "sycamore" and receive one point each. One person responds with "Shark" and receives -1 points for giving a correct answer. Each question works the same way.
The meme teams are back, but these are just for fun this time. They are primarily used for the secondary games. There is a bonus, though- pick a question, and pick a number of pigeons from 1 to 20 for Tebeat to fight. If he wins (as determined by RNG in the roleplay channel on our Discord server), you get points equivalent to the number of pigeons he fought. If he loses, you get the median score instead of however many points you would have otherwise received for the question.
The hono(u)r code: By playing Think Stupid, you agree to not disclose your answers to any player save the organizer (Marinas Island) between the posting of this form and the closing of responses. You agree to bring any issues to the attention of the organizer as soon as you find them and not to challenge the outcome if you do not do so. You agree to only submit one set of answers. If you wish to dispute the ruling of an answer as correct/incorrect, you agree to bring it up with the organizer via forum PM, NS telegram, or Discord DM. If you want clarification on any question or to modify an existing answer, you agree to bring it to the attention of the organizer via forum PM, NS telegram, or Discord DM.
The game will begin in one week (7 days). The game can be found here:
Changes to this edition from usual rules: Searching is permitted, because frankly it won't help you.
There will be a prize to the winner. Past winners are still eligible for prizes even if they have not redeemed theirs.
