Read dispatch

Today, Christmas is celebrated in Republic of La Boca and felt like sharing it with you some traditions and delicious food we have for that special time

On behalf of all nations in Atlantis, we wish you all a Happy, safe and active 2021 and hope that in the coming year our regions will build friendship through our Embassies.

After a vote of the people, the two constitutions of Union of Democrats have been repealed. Now begins a convention of a new constitution for Union of Democrats. The upcoming period will not be easy, but it is one that we get through as a region. I now open the floor for suggestions of what should be included and the regional government should be structured.

Atlantis is holding Winter Games on the 1st Feb to celebrate our region's 18th Anniversary. You are welcome to participate if you wish. Details in the dispatch.


Welcome to the Atlantis Winter Games
Held 1st February 2021 to commemorate the 18th Anniversary of Atlantis.

To Commemorate the 18th Anniversary of Atlantis, Winter Games have been proposed to bring nations sporting heroes together to foster friendship and peace between their nations. The Games will begin on 1st February 2021.

Host | The Games | Sign-Ups | Participants

The Host
The Games will take place at the snow-enveloped Lemming Mountains in The Teachings of Lemmingtopias. The Lemming Mountains, in the North of the country, have for millennia been considered sacred ground and are dotted with monasteries, temples, academies, hermitages and thousands of shrines to the Hellenic gods and Lemmingtopian mystic spirits. The largest complex is the Winter Palace, which will serve as a backdrop to the sporting events and which is the min residence of His Holiness the Lemming Sage outside of the Capital. The Winter Palace is also the resting place of the mummified body of the Divine and Perpetual Emperor Lomax during the winter months. Medal recipients and select dignitaries will be invited to a private audience with the Emperor in his mausoleum.

Athletes, Dignitaries and spectators will arrive at the Lomax Winter Station after a journey from any major city or airport in Lemmingtopias. From here, a funicular railway takes you high above the station to the Winter Palace Complex. Limited access to the Helipad can also be arranged on request. Here, Athletes will be welcome by the Lemming Sage prior to being transported to their team facilities and the athlete village. Rooms are available at the Winter Palace for foreign dignitaries. With the exception of a few pensions near to the winter palace, Hotels for spectators are available at any of the nearby Mountain Towns, most being around one hour's transportation to the site of the Games by rail or coach.

The ancient stone amphitheater has been extended with temporary seating to allow for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies while modern venues for the sports already exist and have been upgraded for the occasion. To ensure the safety of the ancient and sacred site, special routes have been laid out for spectators to follow with free tickets required to access the Winter Palace Complex or any of the nearby monasteries and temples. Temporary facilities have been installed to make the area comfortable for visitors as well as to ensure the safety of the site. Some mountain peaks have also been made available for visitor climbing.

The Games
Several Events across four sports will take place:

  • Bobsleigh

  • Ice Hockey

  • Figure Skating

  • Cross Country Skiing

Sign-Ups

Any Nation in Atlantis or a region with an Embassy with Atlantis is welcome to participate. Puppets are also welcome.

To Participate, please telegram The Teachings of Lemmingtopias.

In your telegram, you may also choose the skill levels for each of the four sports. This is not mandatory and if you do not do so, the default 25 skill will be applied to each sport. Each Skill level should be between 15 and 35 and the total across all 4 sports should be 100. You can also give a style modifier for your Ice Hockey Team between -5 (Ultra Defensive) and +5 (Ultra Aggressive) if you wish.

Example:

"Bob-Sleigh: 25
Ice Hockey: 22
Figure Skating: 20
Men's Skiing: 28
Women's Skiing: 30

Ice Hockey Style: +1"

Roleplay
The Games can be enjoyed by both roleplayers and non-roleplayers. An 'Everything Thread' will be created on the NationStates Forum for announcements, general discussion and roleplay. There will be a small boost for roleplay and non-roleplay discussion quality.

Scorinating
Xcorinate will be used to scorinate the Games.

Beannachtaí agus mianta te!! Greetings from The Confederacy of Layem. We are conducting a diplomatic survey with our allied regions on milk. Please honour us with your esteemed choice on our humble report. Good week and peace to all!
Stay safe and keep well wherever you are!

Duckburg /ˈdʌkbɜːrɡ/ is the capital city of Paperino.

The location that would eventually become the centre of Duckburg was originally known as "Fort Drake Borough," a fort built in the 16th century by British explorer Sir Francis Drake. By the 19th century, the fort had been handed over by its departing British occupants to Cornelius Coot, who renamed the fort "Duckburg". "Drake" means a male duck, while "borough" and "burg" are synonyms meaning a town or district that is an administrative unit.Cornelius Coot turned the old fort into a trading post for fellow traders and hunters, and their families. Eventually a small town grew around the fort on top of Killmule Hill. In Carl Barks' story The Day Duckburg Got Dyed (1957), it is revealed that Cornelius Coot at some point in Duckburg's history managed to pipe mountain water into the town.

The size and structure of Duckburg varied in the works by Barks: it was adjusted to better fit the story he wanted to tell; it could vary from a small town to a medium-sized city, to a bustling metropolis. Later writers and artists most of the time also continues this tradition. In one specific story by Barks, Monsterville (1961), Duckburg was even transformed into a futuristic city by Gyro Gearloose, however it proved that the citizens were not ready for the high level of technology that the new city provided. Thus the city was turned back to its old city structure.

Duckburg is a major center for Space exploration, mainly operated and overseen by Gyro Gearloose, and has had expeditions to the Moon, Mars, Venus, the Asteroids, and more remote parts of the Galaxy. The city also features a sea port and is in proximity of a large forest called the Black Forest and to several mountains, the most notable being "Old Demon Tooth", usually depicted as a towering pointed peak leaning slightly to the side.[7] The main river of the city is the Tulebug River, first mentioned in The Money Well (1958) by Carl Barks, and it is located near Killmotor Hill.

Duckburg is home to Yarvard University (a play on the universities of Harvard and Yale), an institution more notable for its athletic teams than for its academic achievements.

Duckburg is also the home of the Billionaires Club of some of which Scrooge McDuck, John D. Rockerduck and, according to some stories, Flintheart Glomgold are influential members. Duckburg also has a Ritz Hotel

Hello,

I am taking the liberty of contacting you first, you allies with whom we have an embassy.
The purpose of my intervention is the following: I see that many regions have their own role-play, but I think it's a pity that there are so many small RPs. That's why I want to create a large inter-regional RP, which I officially invite you to. Concretely, it would be an RMB connected to your region by an embassy. In our region we have several members with interesting geopolitical skills. Let me know if you are interested.

Sincerely,

France Europe

Anime Fans Disappointed By Polls

Written by Hindu Mahasabha

Recently the region held poll to decide whether region of India should have the Anime tag or not. The Anime Fans were defeated by 11-15 in the poll. Many people like Vajji and Rihaam have expressed their despondency over the issue. Rihaam said, "Also, I'll oppose this non-inclusion of anime tag constitutionally." Hindu Ram Rajya lead the polls by requesting people to vote against the proposal. Once the poll was won, the people were thanked. Hindu Mahasabha said that it is good that so many people voted in favour, maybe next time the Anime Fans will win the polls to have the Anime tag on the region.

Decoding the Vedas
Part II: What is a mantra, is there a god, what is hell, and what is heaven, the key to boundless knowledge, why say ‘Bharatam’

Written by Whole India

Introduction: When we say a mantra, what is it? If you ask this question to a fool, then he will say it is for praising the god/s, but essentially who is god? By praising the god will we go to heaven? Will others who don’t go to hell? How can one gain this knowledge? These few questions arrive at every conscious mind, but their surrounding can’t provide an answer because it isn’t seeking to know.

What is a mantra: See the very basics of a mantra is Sound. Whatever you say have reverberations on your body, mind, intellect. Chanting a mantra wrongly can do terrible things, but chanting it correctly can enhance your ability. Like the Stock Market, do the right investment for profit, but this is the easiest stock market. Even if you don’t know the meaning, of the mantra just recite it, chant it. Modern Science has given substantial evidence that if an individual chants the Gayatri Mantra in a wrong manner for 3 to 5 months then he may lose his voice even if all parts of his throat are intact and normal. That’s the power of sound! Mantras as made in such a way that the sound produced from them benefits our body. The word ‘Aum’ is immensely powerful, nowadays people make it ‘Om’ which is not going to help their system. Chanting mantras can greatly enhance our ability, and we can live a full-fledged life. Adding British or American asset while chanting mantra will ruin you because you are adding excess spice to already cooked food! People think that this ‘Aum’ is only in religion, we will also get the religion thing cleared, but before it is not so that only ‘Hindus’ who brand ‘Aum’, it is everywhere, just is that we lack observation. Christianity came from Jerusalem, and there is used to Aramaic language, and so if you may observe, they say “Aaamen”, remove the “en” and we get the sound of “Aum”. In Vatican City, they say as “Aaaaamen” removing “en” we get the sound of “Aum”. Even in Islam, they say, “Ameen”. Take out “een” and we again get the sound of “Aum”. Hence, this science was and is in every culture, but as time passed the word’s distortion happened like today in the US they made “Amen” as “A-men”, in India, “Aum” became “Om”. This can be better understood if I was speaking to you, but anyways. For those people who have bad dreams, nightmares, can’t give attention to a thing or have problems that are difficult to solve, the pronunciation of “Aum” will be transformational, just a few minutes every day can change your life.

Why say Bharatam, and not India or Hindustan: The Rules of sound even follow here. Bharat comes from bha – ra – ta. Bhava means sensation. Seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching are different types of sensations. Your whole experience of life is sensory right now. Or in other words, sensations are the basis of your experience. Bha means sensation, out of which emotion arises. Ra means raga or the tune. The tune is not yours – existence has already set it. Now you have to find the rhythm, which is the tala. If you find the right rhythm, you are a fantastic human being. If you miss the rhythm, you get crushed by the process of life.
We called this nation Bha-ra-ta, and one of the great kings of the past was Bharata. People say the country is named after him, but actually, he was named after the country. There are so many Bharats and Bharatis in this country – they are named after this nation. King Bharata had nine sons, but when the time to hand over the empire came, he gave it to Bhumanyu, who was the son of the sage Bharadwaj. This boy grew up in the forest. When he came to the court one day, the king looked at him and said, “This boy must become the king – not my sons.” People were shocked because the emperor’s sons, nine of them, were waiting in a queue – probably fighting with each other over who would become the king. People argued, “Who is he? He has grown up in the forest.” Bharata said, “I see an enormous intelligence in his eyes and a raging fire in his heart. He is able-bodied and stable. He should be the king.” This was the first demonstration of democracy in this nation, thousands of years ago. A nation is important because you expand the scope of your passion, involvement, and concern beyond your likes and dislikes. “Why can’t we think about the whole world?” That would be great to have the entire world united, but anyways. A nation is the largest piece of humanity that you can be committed to right now. When you are committed to this nation and its wellbeing, if not to 7.2 billion people, at least you are committed to 1.2 billion people, which is a great step forward from being committed to your wellbeing. Whenever somebody occupies a nation, the first thing they will do is change your name. This is the technology of dominance; this is the technology of enslaving. If you look at African–American history, when the African people were brought to America, the first thing they did was took their African name away and gave them some silly name. That is what has been done to us – Thiruvananthapuram is “Trivandrum.” Chennai is “Madras.” Like this – “India.” What does it mean? It does not mean anything. If I give you a meaningless name, you will become a meaningless, stupid person in front of me because I have a meaningful name. I have a tradition, I have a culture – you have nothing. So in that context, we have become “India.” When we found it, the British said, “Oh! No no, your name is from Greek and Latin which means Indus Valley Civilization.” They just talked about this and that for the sake of convincing us. The concept of a nation must sink into everybody’s mind because a nation is just an idea. When this idea burns through your mind and sinks into your heart, and your passion rises, you have a real nation. Otherwise, “nation” is just on paper. This is the unfortunate reality for us right now. When the British left in 1947, the first thing we should have done is change the name in such a way that it resonates in everybody’s mind. You are using an English name for an Indian nation. Hardly a few per cent of us, Indians can speak English properly in this country. The remaining are essentially left out. I know a whole lot of the intellectual crowd will say, “What is in a name?” When you utter your name, you must understand there is sound. The meaning is only psychological and social. The sound is existential and has power. “Bharat” has power. This power has to reverberate through everybody’s hearts in this country. And the idea of what it means to be an Indian must get across to every human being because if everyone’s aspiration is not the same as the national aspiration, then you don’t have a nation. You can yourself test it, by saying one whole day, “India India India” and one whole day “Bharatam Bharatam Bharatam” then you will see the difference.

Who is god, and what is hell, what is heaven: This is the best part of the story. People of various religions have their own gods, India essentially is a godless culture. When I say, “godless” then many will say about ‘Devas’, ‘Pujas’, ‘Temples’, ‘Idol worship’, etc. So, just read this whole thing. There is a vast difference between ‘gods’ and ‘devas’. Firstly, the word ‘pray’ and ‘worship’ are different. ‘Pray’ means you are becoming the god’s chief consultant while ‘worship’ means you are respecting someone, his/her work. God comes in a belief system, in this culture, there is no belief system. This is a godless culture, there is a whole science behind temples, it isn’t a religious place, because God is a heretic person in this culture there is no heretic person in this culture. The westerners made the term ‘Hindu’ as ‘Hindusim’. They screw up on the word ‘33 Koti Devas’, Koti is a Sanskrit word that has 8 meanings! The poor translator used one meaning which meant 10 million, but the Koti here meant ‘excellent. It means 33 excellent forms of creation! If I tell you today to unscrew 10 screws from a vent without any tools, then you will use your nails, teeth, and end up breaking your nails, and then one day if I give you a screwdriver, you will just know its value, you will worship it. The same is the case here, saints like Sai Baba are worshipped in this culture because of their contribution to our daily life. Like many Marxists worship Karl Marx and Fredrich Angels, many Maoists worship Mao Zedong, and many Nazis worship Adolf Hitler, the same is the case here that’s why we call these people in this culture as ‘Devas’. It is just that Mao and Hitler killed people while others worked to make life better. Marx expected that his socialist theory would be adopted by rich nations, but anyways he also tried something to make life better. The term Hindu came from the Himalayas and Hind Mahasagara which is the Indian ocean. In one Indian family the members worship 3 to 8 different Devas, someone doesn’t worship, someone only does work, someone will only medicate, someone will do crazy things. but still, they are Hindus because it is a geographical identity and not a religion! Few semi-intellectuals and a few pseudo-intellectuals have made the word ‘dharma’ meaning ‘religion’, these western translators have always screwed up, they did it with Koti, they did it with Deva, now they even took Dharma in their list. Dharma means what you should do, and even if you don’t do it, it’s okay. It tells us when we should wake up, what we should do after we wake up, there is a whole science behind it. We can reduce our sleep quota to 3 to 4 hours and live a full-fledged life! If you wish to have a simplistic life, no problem, enjoy.

Temples are the meditation centres in this culture. There is a science in how to consecrate the idols, but nowadays it’s just lost, it is there but after the Bhakti movement, you just take any rock make an idol and worship it, it won’t work though you will have positivity which will help, however, positivity with a consecrated idol is the formula needed for a full-fledged life. Now what is hell, and what is heaven? Can someone forcefully make you suffer? No, it is the reaction that makes you suffer. Tomorrow if I come, and bow down to you and abuse you in a language you don’t know, which won’t, but you will feel that I just asked for your blessings, or I am a nutcase who thinks you are great. But if someone abuses you in the language you know then you will give a negative reaction, isn’t it? So, suffering can’t be forced. Today you have a discriminatory mind who knows when to have joy and when to have sorrow after you die your brain is no more there so we go by our tendencies. The tendencies reach their extreme ends, if you are a negative person by tendency then your negativity will multiply a million folds after your death, and the opposite of same shall happen when you have a positive tendency. Both will reach their extreme ends, and this is what is called Heaven and Hell. So, in this culture, we tell to be joyful for the most time. If you die consciously then there is more in which I won’t go right now. Things like Mahasamadhi, you know?

The Key to Boundless knowledge: As stated in the last part, Knowledge is limited and ignorance is boundless. If you want boundless knowledge then leave your negativity, just leave your beliefs, logic, and just work on what you wish to know. One must rise above this the Left vs the Right, and there should be the realization that we are human first. Instead of presuming something, accept that you don't know by saying to yourself "I don't know" because that "I don't know" is having great potential! To be something, you need to accept something. Few say, "We have pleasure in remaining ignorant." But our human system is of so much potential that we can make every impossible thing possible. Hence, another basic thing is that it is not our job to decide a possibility, it is nature's job to decide a possibility. We have to just concentrate our energies to make everything possible.
