Here is today's news:

  • The TCB Card Factory has opened its doors! This program includes regional giveaways, a regional art museum, card requests, and of course, shiny 1% International Artwork badges. TCBs Card Factory is asking for a team of volunteers to help operate card farms to ensure a steady supply of cards are being printed. Think you can help? Sign up today.

Legislative Affairs


  • The Card Factory is holding a giveaway for people in the Regional Discord. Join and check #announcements to enter.

  • A regional poll was held on whether the Bloc should keep the position of Regional Message Board Representative. The final count was 19 yes, 19 no, and 15 abstain.

  • We have opened The Great People's Rec Hall in our Regional Discord server, and will hopefully host DnD and reading nights in the future. This is also where future Ministerial debates will be held.

  • Check out the Law Archive! It is an easy way to navigate and keep track of all our laws. This document is updated as new laws get passed.

  • Want some endorsements? Run the Revolutionary Endorsement Program! It's simple and doesn't take very much time. Endorse comrades, get endorsed back.

  • Our forums are online, but unfortunately, we have lost a whole year of data. If you applied for citizenship after January of 2020 (Feb-Dec of 2020), make sure to reapply!. You may also have to recreate your account. Apologies for this inconvenience. The government will be working as quickly as possible to re-accept citizenship applications. In order to prevent this from happening again in the future, we will be discussing our options on a forum transfer. Stay tuned! (Disclaimer: this only applies if you were registered as a citizen in-between February 2020 and December 2020. If you have joined TCB after this time period you do not need to re-apply for citizenship)

Howdy folks. Last weeks winners for the puzzle were The Union of Malaysian Socialists, Renjeva, The Passerine Islands, and The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine. This week I have some sudoku, as well as some riddles. DM me or telegram me (Pajonia) your answers. If you get all of the riddles correct, I will dub you the unofficial riddler of TCB. However, you only need to get one (1) correct to be featured in next weeks Saturday Edition. Good luck!

What is always in front of you but can’t be seen?

What can you keep after giving to someone?

What can you catch, but not throw?

What three numbers, none of which is zero, give the same result whether they’re added or multiplied?

If there are three apples and you take away two, how many apples do you have?

What five-letter word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it?

What is so fragile that saying its name breaks it?

I have lakes with no water, mountains with no stone and cities with no buildings. What am I?
