Yep!

This decision comes from the growing escalation near the borders of our country. The Ecosia Defense Ministry says we are responsible for the disappearance of their prime minister. This accusation is absurd! Russia is in no way connected with the disappearance of their prime minister, it is not known what they did to him in order to blame us for this.

In response to the escalation, Russia is ready to announce the resumption of the Ecosia special operation.

We want to notify the authorities of Check Out Ecosia, that we will never allow our sovereignty to be violated and the lives of our citizens to be risked.

Okay what about ermm i don't know sit around and eat popcorn?

Toonela wrote:Hello! Welcome to the SLU. Here's September's Regional Update to help ya get a feel for what's been up recently. ^_^

Since last time:

- Minister of Foreign Affairs Goncar graciously volunteered for the first SLU RMB Town Hall last month, which went very smoothly, if without many questions.
- Minister of Domestic Affairs Erynia and Draconia has run two community polls, including the one currently up on resident religious identification (make sure to vote), appointed Anaaxes as Attorney General (congrats!), and successfully published yet another edition of the regional newsletter, which you can find pinned on our World Factbook Entry.
- Speaker Helvurium has been elected to another five month term by SLU member states. Congratulations!
- Nominations for the next Delegacy election have closed, with Erynia and Draconia the sole standing candidate.
- SLU ally the Communist Bloc has announced a new program whereby their domestic military is open to NSLeft volunteers. As always, make sure you have received a wavier from the Open Parliament before moving your World Assembly membership into a puppet for a foreign military, least you lose your member state rights!

Currently & ongoing:
- Member state Rogueport is running a series of #news channel articles on national sports in the regional roleplay. My favorite team? Fahr City.
- "CoL in Vit(r)o", a character-driven RP scenario in the Discord (check the thread under #diplomacy), continues.
- The Ministry of Domestic Affairs is always seeking new Union Tribune writers. Volunteer by reaching out via Discord or telegram.

New:
- A major overhaul to the Regional Honours and Awards Act is now at vote, courtesy of author Anaaxes! Read all about the proposed changes here: https://parliament.slugov.com/Amendment_5_to_the_Regional_Honours_and_Awards_Act . . . then make sure to vote on it here: https://sluforum.com/vote_portal/
- Erynia and Draconia, current Minister of Domestic Affairs, is up for a confirmation vote to the position of World Assembly Delegate. Cast your vote at the voting portal: https://sluforum.com/elections/
- NSLeft's World Assembly Voluntary Expedition is set to wrap up within the next couple of days. I have it on good word from my internal monologue that the Secretary has some big announcements planned. If you want to check that out as its happening, join the NSLeft Discord server, helpfully linked here on our WFE!
- Finally, stay tuned from an absolute blitz of information out of the Office of World Assembly Affairs as I wrap up my inaugural term with something of a bang.

As you can see, things have slowed down a little on the foreign affairs side of thing over the last month, but plenty is still cooking here domestically, so go forth and get involved in regional affairs via our roleplay, campaigning in the upcoming Ministerial elections, voting, volunteering for a ministry as ambassador, writer, or aide, or just by sharing your thoughts here on the RMB! With my term as Delegate coming to an end and this being my last monthly update to the region in that role, I'll be taking a step back from the region in a big way, but it's been lovely serving the community, and I'm excited for everyone's future knowing that many of you are working on important administrative reforms, attending to the longevity of our region's toolkit for new players, and more.

It's a nice feeling to have on my birthday, so for the last time in this format: have a good week, SLU.

Theres an actual Town Hall in the slu?
Omg omg also im being nuked hehe

Toonela wrote:NUCLEAR ARMAGEDDON LOOMS

. . . and only ANAL (Anime Nations Against Liberals), can save us!

In a somewhat ironic Foreign Affairs decision made out of friendship, the Social Liberal Union has joined Anime Nations Against Liberals for N-Day. If you're into managing puppets, launching nukes, and building shields as the multiverse around us becomes a apocalyptic hellhole on our warpath towards victory, join us: page=faction/fid=212

Not sure what N-Day is all about? Read up on the basics here:

OVERVIEW

N-Day is an opportunity for nations to come together and exchange nuclear weapons in a fiery Armageddon of mutually assured destruction.

To Participate

  1. Once N-Day begins, join a Faction. Nations outside a Faction can't attack or be attacked. You can join a Faction when you're ready and leave when you're not (to stay safe).

  2. Watch your nation automatically generate Production at a rate of 1 every 2 minutes. Use it to build Nukes and Shield.

  3. Launch Nukes at other nations and use Shield to shoot down Nukes that are launched at you.

Tactics

The simplest way to play N-Day is to join whichever Faction seems most fun and start targeting Nukes at its enemies while shooting down anything incoming. Your Faction page's icon bar shows everything you need to know, including who's targeting anyone in your Faction, and who your fellow Faction members are targeting.

Attacking: Step by Step

  1. On your Production screen, spend some of your Production to build Nukes. These go into your Stockpile.

  2. On another nation's Nuke page, click/tap the TARGET button and select the number of Nukes to use.

  3. Once Targeted, it takes 10 minutes for your Nukes to reach a READY state. Note that your Targeted page is public: All nations can see who is targeting whom.

  4. When your Targeted Nukes are ready, click/tap LAUNCH.

  5. Your Nukes are now categorized as Launches for you and Incoming for your target. Launched Nukes take 3-5 minutes to reach their target. When they do, they earn Strikes for you and inflict Radiation on the target, which reduces their rate of Production. This also earns Score for your Faction and reduces the enemy Faction's Score.

Defending: Step by Step

  1. On the Production screen, spend Production to build Shield.

  2. Find Launched Nukes to destroy. Your top priority is any Incoming Nukes launched at you. Secondarily, you may wish to target Incoming Nukes on anyone in your Faction (see your Faction's Incoming page), and also keep an eye on Targeted Nukes that may threaten you or your Faction in the near future.

  3. Click/tap DESTROY to deploy 1 Shield per Nuke.

Strategy

Strategically, it may be wise to avoid attacks on nations or Factions until you are confident of obliterating them, since this eliminates the possibility of counter-attack. Smaller-scale attacks, which damage but don't destroy an enemy, can lead to an escalating series of grudge-related nuclear exchanges.

On the other hand, targeting an enemy can be an effective warning. And it takes Nukes 10 minutes to be ready to launch, so you can't leave it too late.

Scoring

Each Nuke that reaches a target causes Radiation damage, which reduces the target's rate of Production generation and counts as a Strike for the attacker.

A Faction's Score is Strikes minus Radiation.

Duration

N-Day lasts for 24 hours, after which point, an Arms Control Agreement means that no Nukes can be launched. (In-flight nukes can still land, however.)

The "winner" is the Faction with the highest score; if, that is, nuclear war can be said to have a winner. Which we say it can. It's the Faction with the highest score.

FACTIONS

Once N-Day begins, Factions can be founded by a Regional Officer of any region. Any and all Regional Officers of that region can update the Faction's official text to issue instructions to Faction members.

Factions can be made open to all members, or restricted to the region's members only.

You can leave your Faction, which is a good way to stay safe if you're signing off for the night. However, you can only do this if you're not engaged with the enemy! That means:

  • You must not have any nukes targeted or launched at another nation; and

  • No nukes can be targeted or incoming on you.

Note that in practice, this can make it challenging to leave a Faction, since you may be frequently targeted.

While outside a Faction, you cannot be targeted, and do not generate any Production.

Before joining, it's worth making sure a Faction isn't currently under mass bombardment.

SPECIALTIES

Nations are randomly assigned a specialty.

Military Specialists build Nukes faster: They receive 50% more Nukes when converting Production.

Strategic Specialists build Shield faster: They receive 50% more Shield when converting Production.

Economic Specialists can accumulate more Production: Their cap is 200% higher.

Intel Specialists (new!) can finalize targets faster. They have no Production advantages.

PRODUCTION

Nations generate Production automatically at a rate of 1 Production per 2 minutes.

Production can be spent on Nukes or Shield.

If not spent, Production accumulates up to a maximum of 50 for Military and Strategic Specialists and 200 for Economic Specialists.

NUKES

Nukes are purchased with Production, kept in stockpile until ready, then targeted and launched at an enemy nation.

Launched Nukes take 3-5 minutes to reach their target. While in-flight, they can be shot down by any nation using Shield. If they're not, each Nuke generates 1% of Radiation in the target and earns 1 Strike for the attacker.

SHIELD

Shield can be used to knock out Launched Nukes. You can shoot down any in-flight Nukes regardless of who they are aimed at.

Locate in-flight Nukes under Launches or Incoming, and use the DESTROY button to eliminate them at a rate of 1 Shield per Nuke.

It is possible to waste Shield if multiple nations deploy Shield simultaneously to knock out the same Nukes.

TARGETING

Target a nation by viewing their Nuke page and clicking/tapping TARGET. You may then select how many Nukes to target from your Stockpile.

It takes a short time for a Targeted Nuke to reach a READY state, after which it may be launched. This is normally 10 minutes, but Intel Specialists are faster, finalizing targets in only 3 minutes.

If not launched after 1 hour, Targeted Nukes automatically return to your Stockpile.

RADIATION

Radiation is generated in a nation when it is struck by a Nuke.

Radiation proportionately reduces a nation's Production generation rate. For example, 20% Radiation reduces Production generation by 20%.

When a nation is 100% Radiated, it is destroyed and no longer able to launch any Nukes nor use any Shield.

Radiation is irreversible.

You can leave a Faction when irradiated, but this does not affect your Faction's score.

SCORE

A Faction's score measures strikes and radiation that occurred while those nations were a member. It is unaffected by nations joining or leaving the Faction.

Then get yourself over to our faction's preparation page:







Before NDay

  • Familiarise yourself with what NDay is! But what is it you say? Simple! We have different guides at your disposition to answer this question: the Preparation Guide (this one), our Standing Orders, and Testlandia's guide N-Day: What You Need to Knowó all of which are linked to in the header of this dispatch. This specific page focuses on what you should do before AND during the event. Understanding both is essential to success. Though you can perfectly have fun just fooling around with the event anyway!

  • Be sure to join our Discord Server where all the fun happens! Live orders will be delivered here, and it's always better to experience the event as a group!

  • Create puppets: They (additional accounts that are not your main) are greatly helpful for our success, as more nations means more production, more nukes, and shields! You may open the spoiler below for a quick guide on how to streamline your puppet creation process PLEASE NOTE YOU NEED 12 MILLION POPULATION (reached after a week of being created) FOR YOUR PUPPET TO BE ELIGIBLE TO PLAY NDAY:

    You can do this by creating additional puppet nations. Your puppet nations are required to have a minimum population, so itís best if you start creating and preparing your nations now!
    (Like Now Now Now)

    Itís simple to create a single puppet nation, and not much harder for multiple puppet nations!

    Simply head over to the nation creation page

    Scroll down all the way and click next
    (Yes the questions are skippable!)

    Afterwards, fill in your nation name, and click create!

    If you want to make multiple puppet nations at once, hold the Control Button and Click. A new tab will open with the created puppet nation.
    Change the name of your puppet nation and CTRL-Click again.
    Rinse and repeat for the number of puppet nations that you would like to create

  • Consider taking a look at the Tools page if you've decided on using puppets. They will greatly enhance your ability to use them and increase the efficiency at which you do so!


During Nday:

  • Join our regionís faction: this faction will be called Anime Nations Against Liberals, and a link will be provided to it when the event starts. Directions to it, once it is made, will also be available in the Discord and on the RMB of the Anime Nations Against Liberals region.

  • Begin production: We invite you to choose between three possibilities:

    • Join the Versatile Gang and specialise each of your puppets based on their classes: see each of them below:

      • If you have a Military Specialist: This nation requires less production to craft nukes. Equals to 50% more nukes when converting a full stockpile of production.

      • If you have a Strategic Specialist: This nation requires less production to craft shields. Equals to 50% more shields when converting a full stockpile of production.

      • If you have an Economic Specialist: This nation can store four times as much production than them (200 vs 50).

      • If you have an Intel Specialist: This nation finishes its targeting twice as fast as the others. Allows for a quicker attack. Does not have any production bonus whatsoever.

    • Join the Nuke Gang and only produce nukes no matter what specialisation your puppets possess: recommended if you have too many puppets (20-30+) to keep track of each of their specialisations.

    • Join the Shield Gang and only produce shields no matter what specialisation your puppets possess: recommended if you have too many puppets (20-30+) to keep track of each of their specialisations.

  • Check the faction page: Our faction page will feature crucial information like our current orders, possible agreements with other factions, and so on.

  • Play as a team: join the faction VC, talk in the discord channels within the District 13 category or interact on the RMB with people! Coordination with your other faction members once orders are given is the key to our survival, for our great coalition will be under attack from the liberals! In addition and as said before, it's always a better experience when you play as a group! :D


After Nday:

  • Accept the results: May or may not our faction survive its siege, remember that what counts is the journey! Reaching our goal will enhance our experience, but it is not most of it!

  • HOWEVER DEFEAT IS IN NO WAY ACCEPTABLE, OUR GLORIOUS COALITION SHALL TRIUMPH AGAINST ITS LIBERAL FOES!

Hi SLU! Did you get an opportunistic recruitment message from the founder of Declansburg? You can let him know what you think of his "offer" by blocking recruitment telegrams in your telegram settings.

Now, back to sending off nukes!
