If so, that statement is grossly incorrect.
I made those two flags before I even made this nation, those flags I made for a D&D campaign.
Now if i'm just interpreting what you said incorrectly, sorry.

You are, Dubant is just offering to make new flags for any interested nations and complimented your new design!

The Planetary Alliance of Jutsa

A message from the Jutsaish Transcommunications System:

Finally, we kicked out the hackers! I think... we're not actually sure if they just stopped for no reason, or if our super experimental AI removed them. We're not even sure it works, although there has been an eerie smell coming out from our main computers. But in the end, who cares? At least the flag is no longer pink, the color representing the communist regime that broke our economy, freedom, hospital funds, sale of cottage cheese, and environment... I've said too much.

The Community of ILFA Administration

it's ya boi, Pele

Greetings to all! The Interregional Left Football Association (ILFA) has finished our first season of competitions, and we're glad to say that the whole operation has been a complete success! Therefore, we are now inviting you to join us in our second season, with brand new competitions to compete in, more teams to beat, and more gold to win! Forest, having an embassy with the ILFA's home region (TLA), is part of the ILFA's auto-acceptance policy, meaning that all applications from Forest will be accepted. As before, we are more casual than our friends over on the NS Sport sub-forum, so if you don't have time to RP, it's not a problem, and won't affect your ability to compete!

This season, we are expanding the ILFA from 2 to 4 competitions. We are introducing the ILFA Second Division to run alongside our Premier Division, and we are also introducing the ILFA Entrants' Cup, for all new members of the ILFA!

To sign up, please send a Telegram to this account confirming that you'd like to join us. We are heavily based on our own Discord server, so if you can't use Discord, please let us know when applying.

We hope to see you for Season 2!


President of the ILFA

PS: While we are aware that not everyone here is going to consider themselves a Leftist, we feel that we should extend the comradely spirit that the ILFA was founded upon to all residents of eligible regions. Though we are based in an ideological background, what we really care about is the sport.

The Old Growth Forests of Ruinenlust

Dear Friends,

We have gotten an embassy request from the region of Pacifica. They meet all of our quantitative requirements; in fact, they are the 24th largest region in the world, with 514 nations, as of this writing.

This is the telegram from Cormactopia Prime, Pacifica's WA Delegate and President:
"Hello! I'm writing to request embassies between Forest and Pacifica.
Pacifica is a democratic republic, with a Regional Congress that is open to all citizens. The President, who also serves as head of state, World Assembly Delegate, and handles external affairs, is elected by the citizenry; as is the Prime Minister, who handles domestic affairs; and the Speaker, who presides over the Regional Congress. The Justices of our High Court and members of our Guardian Council are also confirmed by the Regional Congress, and are subject to reconfirmation every six months. Secretaries and Ministers are appointed by the President and Prime Minister without confirmation, but can be removed from office by the Regional Congress (as can all officials).
Although we are not an explicitly environmental region, we are quite interested in the World Assembly and looking to expand our World Assembly program, which could include working on environmental proposals. We would also be happy to work with Forest on other environmental awareness and advocacy programs to help bring that perspective more into the gameplay sphere.
If you have any questions about Pacifica that would help your government reach a decision, please don't hesitate to let me know.
Cormactopia Prime
President of the Republic of Pacifica"


I have been in communication with Cormactopia for a while now. Some of you may recall that Pacifica requested embassies nearly a month ago, approximately. That request was allowed to time out, because we had agreed to wait until the business with the proposed constitutional changes was settled. As time went by, however, Uan aa Boa and I both felt that it would be better to just proceed as normal until something actually happens, so here we are! :-)

Please have a look at Pacifica and see what they're about, and then vote!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend,

Ruinenlust, Minister of Foreign Affairs
