[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
Yes you've heard me right, election time in 10000 Islands! This month we've seen elections for New Republica South, Blue Canaria North and also for WA Delegate. The runners were incumbent Senator for New Republica South [nation]Valentian Elysium[/nation] running with the plans of having debates each week, bringing in similar ideas to the ones in last election, (campaign can be seen [url=https://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/41878/valentian-new-republica-south]here[/url]), [nation]Haivon[/nation] running in a platform of having Emissary Reports more attractive to the public (campaign to be found [url=https://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/41913/haivon-blue-canaria-north]here[/url]) and for last, incumbent WA Delegate, [nation]Wischland[/nation], running with the proposal of expanding several plataforms used by XKI and promoting the interests of the region (campaign [url=https://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/41895/wischland-delegate-electric-boogaloo]here[/url]). 
As it can be easily seen, each position which was disputed only had one candidate, which guaranteed a slandslide for each of the three runners, with [nation]Valentian Elysium[/nation] winning by 30 to 1, [nation]Wischland[/nation] also having a victory of 30 to 1, and for last [nation]Haivon[/nation] having a slightly less guaranteed victory, winning by 27 to 3. I wish for all of the three a bright and successful term!

It is indeed true folks, N-Day has came into NS again this year for a new turn of nuking, nuking and nuking! What a beautiful world we live in, isn't it? The Potato Alliance once again was reborn from the ashes, and now with more regions in the faction then ever before, all joining forces for a common goal, win N-Day and survive the nuclear Aaocalypse. This time the Horsemen, now under the new name of Crabs, were ready for their revenge for the ultimate humiliation they suffered last year. A clash of giants, and it wouldn't be their first, and luckly not last time fighting. 
Well, at first, everyone seemed to be able to use a fork, as the Crabs and the Potatoes made an unnofficial non-aggression pact, in which both factions would burn down everyone else and stockpile for the final conflict. Which, trying to be unbiased as possible, was not the fairest game for everyone outside the two giants, as they were simply consumed under non-stopping nuclear fire. If you somehow managed to survive from those two at that stage, honestly, tell me how to leave the matrix.
Anyway, it didn't took long from the awaited battle to begin. Hordes of nuclear fire were launched from both sides, but in the end, the Crabs managed to break down the Potatoes, and ultimately having total victory. Resistance kept going, but in the end it wasn't possible to achieve the outmaneuver done by the Potatoes last year. Another interesting fact what the totally unnecessary and depressing operation made by the Crabs to make them hold all the Top 10 Factions, which could be seen from the top of the screen. But no matter the result, it was still an extremely fun event, and next year, the Potatoes will have their revenge, stronger then ever before![/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]This month [nation]Jabberwocky[/nation], XKI's Regional Pollster asked to islanders [url=https://www.nationstates.net/page=poll/p=176905]"How do you intend to spend this weekend?"[/url], and also warning us that the list of choices wasn't that easy to comprehend. The poll received 92 answers, having somewhat balanced results, ignoring the two most answered. 6 respondents (6.52%) will go hike, camp or commune with the nature (nothing as a quick return to monkey), 16 (17.39%) will catch up in some work (the beautiful act of leaving everything for later), 24 (26.09%) will catch up on some rest (bunch of normies), 5 (5.44%) will watch as much sports on television as they can (goal?), 7 (7.61%) will engage in the XKI/FNR weekend visit (telling you, priorities), 9 (9.78%) will drink huge amounts of alcohol to forget work (pretty sure it's not healthy but still interesting), 3 (3.26%) will medidate and maybe achieve a higher level of being (and also hoping that they find the ultimate question for life, universe and everything in the proccess), 9 (9.78%) will be doing domestic chores once again (sounds fun!), 6 (6.52%) will be visiting their relatives (prayers for those who are visiting in-laws) and for last, 7 (7.61%) will be doing an astrally project (I'm not sure what to comment on that one).

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]This month, I spoke with [nation]Wille-Harlia[/nation], XKI's Minister of Labor.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: Hello WH! Could I ask you some few questions?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Wille-Harlia: Yep![/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: Why did you decided to join XKI?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Wille-Harlia: I'd say I joined XKI for the same reason as pretty much everybody else. I joined NS April 9, 2020, and was founded in TNP. From there, I looked at the recruitment TGs I had received and narrowed it down to two: some upstart British Royalty-themed region, and XKI. My recruitment TG was sent by Grea Kriopia, and I joined the region because I thought her TG was the most welcoming.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: Why did you wish to remain in this region?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Wille-Harlia: After joining it, I wisched to stay in XKI for two main reasons. First, the ability to get involved in the region's government excited me, which is actually one of the reasons that I ran for Senator so quickly, in July, the first race I was able to run in. Second, and more so than the first, the community. I probably would have left this game by now if it wasn't for the great people in XKI. The fun I have with my fellow Islanders is why I still play this game.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: Is there any moment in special in your job that was particularly notable, and immediatly gets into your mind when thinking about it? If yes, there is one?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Wille-Harlia: I would say that my first completed job posting was particularly magical to me, I had closed a two-month-long vacancy in the Casino Shift Manager position, getting Liberdon to take the job. It's not necessarily the job posting itself that was magical to me, it was more so the realization that Minister of Labor was a job that I was going to enjoy doing that is what stuck with me.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: Which are your thoughts in the Poet Laureate Contest and events as such? What do you believe their importance to the community is?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Wille-Harlia: I think that the Poet Laureate Contest and events like it are integral to XKI and its community. On a fundamental level, our events, along with our members (and yeah, TITO), are a big chunk of what makes XKI, well, XKI. They are also a way to bring our community together over common interests. To name a few current examples, the Poet Laureate Contest and the Great Worldbuilding Festival are bringing members of our region together over their interest in such things. This is actually part of the reason that I think the Cultural Office is one of the most important parts of XKI, without it, and the number of unique events that it brings with it, our regional culture would be lacking compared to what is now. So essentially, I think that events like the Poet Laureate Contest are extremely important to XKI and its community as they bring us together and help give XKI its distinct culture.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: Well, I guess that is all. There is anything else you wish to say?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Wille-Harlia: Thank you so much for taking the time to interview me today![/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: You're welcome![/font]
