I wish any defends were posted here for context, as to like which nations tried to raid and stuff so I can banish the right ones easier.
Also I just eject all the nations that were still in the region and participated in the defend just to keep track of the nations in the region. Simpler logs are needed for regions imo.
Greetings fellow soldiers-in-arms, thought I'd share this lċtest dispatch detailing the war. Please enjoy and upvote and have a good week!
P.s Some former regionmates are currently running a poll on 'Tea or Coffee', please help them out by taking a look. Thanks!

Amid the fog of war, it can be hard to see the way forward. The news from the battlefield, the diplomatic noises off, the emotion of the grieving and displaced; all of this can be overwhelming. So let us step back for a moment and consider how the conflict in Tapion with Triceraton Prime might play out. What are some of the possible scenarios that politicians and military planners are examining? Few can predict the future with confidence, but here are some potential outcomes. Most are bleak.
Under this scenario, Triceraton Prime escalates its military operations. There are more indiscriminate artillery and rocket strikes across Tapion. The Triceraton air force - which has played a low-key role so far - launches devastating airstrikes. Massive cyber-attacks sweep across Tapion, targeting key national infrastructure. Energy supplies and communications networks are cut off. Thousands of civilians die. Despite brave resistance, Pearl Milk Ikspiari falls within days. The government is replaced with a pro-Zanramon puppet regime. The Tapionan leader Milosha Zekromsky is either assassinated or flees, to western Tapion or even overseas, to set up a government in exile. Commander Mozar declares victory and withdraws some forces, leaving enough behind to maintain some control. Thousands of refugees continue to flee west. Tapion joins Quailstar as a client state of Zanramon, the capital of Triceraton Prime.
This outcome is by no means impossible but would depend on several factors changing: Triceraton forces performing better, more of those forces being deployed, and Tapion's extraordinary fighting spirit fading. Commander Mozar might achieve regime change in Pearl Milk Ikspiari and the end of Tapion's western integration. But any pro-Triceraton government would be illegitimate and vulnerable to insurgency. Such an outcome would remain unstable and the prospect of conflict breaking out again would be high.
Perhaps more likely is that this develops into a protracted war. Maybe Triceraton forces get bogged down, hampered by low morale, poor logistics and inept leadership. Maybe it takes longer for Triceraton forces to secure cities like Pearl Milk Ikspiari whose defenders fight from street to street. A long siege ensues. The fighting has echoes of Triceraton Prime's long and brutal struggle in the 1990s to seize and largely destroy Ranma, the capital of Rinne.
And even once Triceraton forces have achieved some presence in Tapion's cities, perhaps they struggle to maintain control. Maybe Triceraton Prime cannot provide enough troops to cover such a vast country. Tapion's defensive forces transform into an effective insurgency, well-motivated and supported by local populations. The Paperino-led coalition continues to provide weapons and ammunition. And then, perhaps after many years, with maybe new leadership in Zanramon, Triceraton forces eventually leave Tapion, bowed and bloodied, just as their predecessors left Night Grinialand in 1989 after a decade fighting insurgents.
Might it be possible this war could spill outside Tapion's borders? Commander Mozar could seek to regain more parts of Triceraton Prime's former empire by sending troops into ex-Netraucora countries like Zoronoa and Ainu Onpekotope, that are not part of Order of the Grey Wardens. Or there could just be miscalculation and escalation. Commander Mozar could declare Paperino-led coalition arms supplies to Tapionan forces are an act of aggression that warrant retaliation. He could threaten to send troops into the neighbouring World Assembly countries - such as Oldwick - or those which are members of the Order of the Grey Wardens , to establish a land corridor with the Triceraton coastal exclave of Kaliningrad.
This would be hugely dangerous and risk war with the Security Council. Under Article 5 of the military alliance's charter, an attack on one member is an attack on all. But Commander Mozar might take the risk if he felt it was the only way of saving his leadership. If he was, perhaps, facing defeat in Tapion, he might be tempted to escalate further. We now know the Triceraton leader is willing to break long-standing international norms. This same logic can be applied to the use of nuclear weapons. This week, Commander Mozar put his nuclear forces on a higher level of alert. Most analysts doubt this means their use is likely or imminent. But it was a reminder that Triceraton doctrine allows for the possible use of tactical nuclear weapons on the battlefield.
Might there, despite everything, still be a possible diplomatic solution?
"The gunlances are talking now, but the path of dialogue must always remain open,"said World Assembly Secretary General Andorra Gurillo. Certainly dialogue continues. Ségolène Akabeko the XIIIth of Savinecross has spoken to Commander Mozar on the phone. Diplomats say feelers are being stretched out to Zanramon. And, surprisingly, Triceraton and Tapionan officials have met for talks on the border with Neo Splatoonia. They might not have made much progress. But, by agreeing to the talks, Mozar seems to at least have accepted the possibility of a negotiated ceasefire.
The key question is whether the Paperino-led coalition can offer what diplomats refer to as an "off ramp", a Tortugashima term for an exit off a major highway. Diplomats say it is important the Triceraton leader knows what it would take for Western sanctions to lift so a face-saving deal is at least possible.
Consider this scenario. The war goes badly for Triceraton Prime. Sanctions begin to unsettle Zanramon. Opposition grows as body bags return home. Commander Mozar wonders if he has bitten off more than he can chew. He judges that continuing the war may be a greater threat to his leadership than the humiliation of ending it. Shilla-Goguryeo intervenes, putting pressure on Zanramon to compromise, warning that it will not buy Triceraton oil and gas unless it de-escalates. So Commander Mozar starts to look for a way out. Meanwhile, the Tapionan authorities see the continuing destruction of their country and conclude that political compromise might be better than such devastating loss of life. So diplomats engage and a deal is done. Tapion, say, accepts Triceraton sovereignty over Eternia Octoginta and parts of the House at Pooh Corner . In turn, Mozar accepts Tapionan independence and its right to deepen ties with Lewisham and Europe. This may not seem likely. But it is not beyond the realms of plausibility that such a scenario could emerge from the wreckage of a bloody conflict.

And what of Commander Mozar himself? When he launched his invasion, he declared: "We are ready for any outcome."
But what if that outcome was him losing power? It might seem unthinkable. Yet the world has changed in recent days and such things are now thought about. Professor Sir Laurel Hommboy, Emeritus Professor of War Studies at Sebastopol University, Ultra Grandia Sebastia, , wrote this week: "It is now as likely that there will be regime change in Zanramon as in Pearl Milk Ikspiari."
(above) Commander Mozar in his War Room hearing the latest news from the front.
Why might he say this? Well, perhaps Commander Mozar pursues a disastrous war. Thousands of Triceraton soldiers die. The economic sanctions bite. Commander Mozar loses popular support. Perhaps there is the threat of popular revolution. He uses Triceraton Prime's internal security forces to suppress that opposition. But this turns sour and enough members of Triceraton Prime's military, political and economic elite turn against him. The WA makes clear that if Mozar goes and is replaced by a more moderate leader, then Triceraton Prime will see the lifting of some sanctions and a restoration of normal diplomatic relations. There is a bloody palace coup and Mozar is out. Again, this may not seem likely right now. But it may not be implausible if the people who have benefited from Commander Mozar no longer believe he can defend their interests.
These scenarios are not mutually exclusive - some of each could combine to produce different outcomes. But however this conflict plays out, the world has changed. It will not return to the status quo ante. Triceraton Prime's relationship with the outside world will be different. European and Lewisham attitudes to security will be transformed. And the liberal, international rules-based order might just have rediscovered what it was for in the first place.

Greetings nations of Yuno,
Here is the Turkic World News of June 2022
06/06/22: 27 years later Qazaqstan, to start a period which would be called "the new Qazaqstan", held a constitutional referrendum, second since their national history. Question was "Do you accept amendments and additions to the Constitution of the Republic of Qazaqstan set forth in the draft Law of the Republic of Qazaqstan "On Amendments and Additions to the Constitution of the Republic of Qazaqstan", published in the media on 6 May 2022?". Referrendum resulted in "Yes" with 77.18%.
The new constitution will clearly state that Qazaq soil, along with natural sources under the earth, belongs to the nation (previously state owned). Death penalty will be abolished. President and many other authorities will not be able to become member of political parties as long as they are in charge.
14/06/22: Crimean Tatars on the occupied peninsula are experiencing the greatest repression. This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelensky during a video address to the participants of the American Jewish Committee Global Forum. "The Russian army has destroyed the communities, in which the Greek community has lived for centuries. The Crimean Tatars on the occupied peninsula are experiencing the greatest repressions. Russian rockets hit Babyn Yar in Kyiv, a Russian missile damaged the Menorah in Drobitsky Yar near Kharkiv, Zelensky said.
20/06/22: Composer and artist Iraqi Turk Muhammed Ahmed Erbilli passed away at 89. His compostions went beyond Iraq and were heard in Istanbul, Kirkuk, Azerbaijan and more. 12 songs that were popularized by Ibrahim Tatlıses are compositions of Erbilli, like "Yallah şoför", "Almağa gelin", "Yandım televizyonun elinden" and "Kızlar el ele verin". (Editor's Note: Iraq Turks/Turkmens are of a different ethnicity than Turkmens)
Kurdistan Regional Government authorities opposed Muhammed Ahmed Erbilli's coffin being covered by Turkmeneli flag. Kurd authorities' claim was that the Turkmeneli flag symbolizes a political party. Minutes later the flag was removed. Iraqi Turkish journalist Mustafa Kemal Yılmaz reports.
24/06/22: China's Australia embassador Xiao Qian was interrupted by protestors during speech. Demonstrators shouted to "stop the genocide" in Xinjiang and "Tibet remains colonised". One asked: "How about freedom of speech in China?". The Guardian
29/06/22: Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Department of Culture opened Resmin Türkçesi: Türk Dünyasının Tuvalde Buluşması exhibition, which features works by artists from the Turkic world and Turkey, spanning seven countries on two continents. (Editor's Note: Exhibition's name translates to "The Turkish of Painting: Meeting of the Turkic World on Canvas". The word "Turkish" in this context means language and not nationality.)
The exhibition can be visited in "Tophane-i Amire Kültür Merkezi" for free from 28 June to 3 July. Includes works of Akmal Nuridonov and Alisher Alikulov from Uzbekistan, Arif Aziz, Refik Aziz and Sakit Mammadov from Azerbaijan, Eldar Aitmatov, Yuristanbek Shygaev and Musakeev Temirbek from Kyrgyzstan, Sembigali Smagulov from Qazaqstan, Hüssein Husseinov from Turkmenistan, Devrim Erbil, Ergin İnan, Kadir Ablak, Mahir Güven, Süleyman Saim Tekcan and Yalçın Gökçebağ from Türkiye. kültür.istanbul
30/06/22: Chinese ultra-nationalists violently assault Hong Kong human rights protestors at the China vs Australia basketball match. Activist Max Mok (莫熾韜) was holding a sign by Badiucao (巴丢草) supporting Australian Uyghur political prisoner Mirzat Taher - imprisoned for 25 years. "Security didnt take any action against this violent attacker but they did drag me backwards down a flight of stairs for holding signs supporting Australian political prisoners in China and calling for an end to Uyghur Genocide" Drew Pavlou says and reports.

Formerly known in Ye Old Wintercrest Days as the Revolutionary Daily, we've decided to rebrand and rename our regional newspaper. So with that being said, I give you:
The Winter Gazette
Correspondent of the Wintercrest Central News Agency, District of Internal Affairs - Office of Information
You're reading the VERY FIRST EDITION of the People's Constitutional Republic of Wintercrest's (hopefully) monthly regional newspaper, the Winter Gazette! Where all regional and external affairs of Wintercrest are journalized in one factbook for the People.
The Winter Gazette is not responsible for any nausea, fatigue, diarrhea, stolen newspaper copies, death or other illness which might be caused when reading the ensuing articles, nor do we refund...
A New Era
Two months is all it took. When Wintercrest officially shut down in March of 2022, there was no hope for the region. Activity was dead, the population dropping by day and the people who were keeping Wintercrest "alive" were busy in the real world. But then something was realized. A spark of hope, lit aflame. The Independent States of Allied Forces realized he was unable to abandon the region, let it sit and collect dust. So he brought together a team, consisting of Morograd, Uponda, and Piper Winter. Using their one shared brain cell, they brought forth new ideals unto the land of Wintercrest and in doing so, let go of tradition, relics of the past.
The first step was removing the role of the now former Revolutionary Mothers, Zenny and Piper Winter. The Independent States of Allied Forces when questioned about this noted that "While the role of Zenny and Piper as not only the Revolutionary Mothers but as the Founders of Wintercrest can not be understated, they are simply no longer around. This is through no fault of their own, but the question aises. Wintercrest is a People's Republic, with the power residing in the People. So why then must two people, who are not active, give their assent to all legislation that comes through the Revolutionary Peoples' Congress? This, among other things, adds yet another layer to the already complex onion that is Wintercrest's regional government. This is something that must rectified when the new Wintercrest is put into motion." With the unveiling of the newly renamed People's Constitutional Republic of Wintercrest, the ISAF says "Our motto is forever forward. This is why we must not be stuck in the past but instead adapt our region to meet the standards of today's more successful and active regions."
Already this new edition of Wintercrest is seeing a resurgence with regional population rising from the low 30s to the mid 60s in just over a week and a plethora of activities to boot. Only time well tell if Wintercrest shall befall the same fate as its predecessor, however.

Regional Leader The Independent States of Allied Forces (not to be confused with the writer of this article) hosted an online session of Cards Against Humanity in the regional Discord server, the game where people try to make the darkest jokes they can instead of socializing normally. I mean seriously, go touch some grass! The game was attended by our friends in The East Pacific and The Free Nations Region with many laughs being had. But the last laugh was by the ISAF, who defeated his opponents handily, winning two games in a row. As is typical, the victories have gone to his head, with the ISAF declaring himself "The greatest CAH player to ever grace NationStates." Somebody please knock him off his high horse...

On Thursday, June 23rd, Wintercrest proudly announced the passing of the Wintodor Accords with the region of Odrya. The Accords is a mutual defense pact between the two regions and the move comes several weeks after an official opening of gameside embassies between the two regions. Wintercrest's President of the State Council the ISAF, a citizen of both regions, said in a press conference Friday that "Odrya and Wintercrest now embark on a prosperous journey of friendship, one that we hope shall continue onwards for a long, long time."
Miles "Pudge" Halter wants to gain a deeper perspective on life, so he enrolls in boarding school. While he's there, he gains a group of loyal friends and falls in love with Alaska Young. When an unexpected tragedy strikes, the close-knit group of friends try to make sense of what they have been through. The limited series is based on the John Green novel of the same name.
Ok, listen. John Green's book is an amazing read and I highly recommend to anyone. The TV series does it justice in most regards with good script writing and great casting. Charlie Plummer (Mile "Pudge" Halter) did an excellent job of catching Pudge's awkwardness and cringe (I caught second-hand embarrassment soooo many times) and the rest of the casting was spot on. I was disappointed in some of the things they left out but creator Josh Schwartz and the episode directors more then made up for it with what they added. This is a show about substance abuse, coming-of-age, teen drama, etc. Bittersweet and beautifully performed, it's a show that will make you cringe, laugh, maybe even tear up a little. At the end, it leaves you questioning life. What does it mean? What should I do with it? How do I adapt to it?
That, my dear friends, is Looking For Alaska.
