"Assessment?" Ira asked the empty room, the glowing translucent figure of a leather-dressed troubled teenager manifested scarcely half-way through her word while blurting out an energetic, "Trap!"
"Not from her, she's far too sentimental..." replied Ira, standing up from her simple wooden chair to meet the gaze of the holographic Elise, "I take you've both already run the heuristical analysis of it?"
Threading her non-physical fingers together she answered, "Well it came from her terminal and her sign, so she's definitely in on it." pacing gingerly about the room as she spoke, "Also what's your pleasure palace and why am I locked out of it?"
"My youthful indiscretions are none of your concern, stick to the message."
A twirl and a shrug was the only response, leaving Ira to ask the room once more; "And your take, Emily?"
"Cross-analysis and ELINT surveillance reveals no plan conducted by any Intelligence Assets, My Conclusion based on internal observations that this is a personal call related to the prospect of procreation." the calm voice coaxed an expression of displeasure from Elise, who rolled her eyes and mumbled, "Oh sure if I had all that I could of told you too..." before settling in the corner and pretending to pout.
Ira quietly pondered as she paced over to stand besides Elise, "She's an adult, seems a bit much to come asking me this late in life."
"She wants an exceptional offspring."
Her contemplation continued, the moments of heavy thought leading her to offer a hand to Elise with a warm smile; "Well I figure we can show her some examples then... suit up girls, I owe it to her mother."
Elise's facade instantly shattered as the girl leapt to her feet and roared, "I'm driving!"
"I'll be along shortly, try to dress presentable."
And in that instant, the figured faded, leaving Ira alone in the room... after much deliberation she pulled the old white coat out of her closet, taking a moment to tie her hair back in a simplistic ponytail before departing further into ship.
"My dear niece,
Old scars and the general animosity is so very tiring, I'll be along in due time... I'm sure my sister would preferred a positive reaction.
In recent news: the nation of Ameriquae officially has put up a national website (ameriquae.mq.gov). Both rightist and leftists in the nation of Ameriquae have supported the choice for this.

Regardless of whether the negotiations will be successful, we wish your nation all the best and we hope for mutual cooperation for the wellbeing of our countries.

[I deeply appreciate you doing this for me. It's about time that we reconciled. I look forward to your arrival - and to that matter, please send me the details of your arrival area and date. I will meet you there myself.]
"What was that, baby?" Alia murmured, rolling over on the bed so she could face Samira.
"Hm? Nothing," Samira said.
"Yeah right." Alia giggled, pulling the much smaller woman in for a quick smooch. "You can't lie to me. I know all your tells~"
Samira let out a gentle grumble. "I received a message from... from Ira."
"Oh. Shit." Alia sat up gently, pulling Samira into a snuggle. "You okay?"
"I received a far more positive response than I expected. She's... on her way."
"That's... that's really nice to hear. Family shouldn't fight. Any idea when she'll be here?"
"Waiting on further details at this point."
"So, with her on the way, we should probably have a talk about childr--"
"I love children. So much." Alia grinned down at Samira. "I've always wanted one, I just... never really had a partner before. Couldn't handle one on my own, but with you? I think we have a good shot."
"So you're interested?"
"Hell yeah I am! And even if I weren't, I'm still beside you every step of the way."
"Thank you, Alia..." Samira rested her head on the larger synthetic's shoulder. "I love you. Truly."
"I love you too, sweetie pie."
A Giant Meteor blazes through the sky overhead; leaving a trail of sparks in the sky above your region; those sparks seem to fall in a particular pattern, spelling out the words:

Presidential Palace Chief of Staff Leo McGarry Steps Down
After serving beside the President for three years, Chief of Staff Leo McGarry has announced he will be stepping down after being hospitalized for severe pneumonia.
McGarry collapsed three days ago at the Presidential Camp in Jamestown and was rushed to the hospital where he had to undergo surgery and was placed on a ventilator. His doctors appeared before the press yesterday where they announced he is in stable but critical condition and will remain at the hospital for the foreseeable future.
First thing this morning, President John Williams announced that he was promoting Presidential Palace Press Secretary CJ Craig to the position of Chief of Staff until Mr. McGarry returns,
"After surgery 36 hours ago I am relieved to announce that Leo McGarry is in stable condition and headed for a full recovery. Though he will always be a very valuable part of this administration, he will not be returning to his post. I am therefore pleased, and terribly proud to announce that effective immediately, the Presidential Palace Chief of Staff will be filled by Claudia Jean Craig"
Space Shuttle Aquarius Launches from Jamestown
The shuttle Aquarius, the newest craft to the AusValia fleet took off at 9:30pm local time. The mission will bring the next six astronauts to the AusValia lunar lab located on the Fra Mauro site.
This will be the second crew to land on the site since it was built. They will remain for seven weeks for a two part mission. First, they will work to improve communications between the station and earth as well as a drilling operation.
Aquarius is expected to touchdown on the moon Sunday morning.
Both Houses Pass the President's Economic Security Bill
After months of negotiations, the Upper House finally passed the last phase of the President's Economic Security Bill, which mandates that a person can only engage in five day trades a week within the stock market if they have less than $25,000 in their portfolio.
The bill came after the economic recession nearly four years ago, in which many people were driven into debt by day trading (buying and selling a stock within one business day). The new bill works to protect those who are not financially safe to engage in such trades and offers federal protections.
Some Conservative members felt that it was too much government oversight, but eventually agreed. The bill won't officially take effect until the end of the year.
United One Trust Cuts Deal with the Justice Council
United One Trust which has been under investigation by two city attorneys, the Upper House, and the Justice Council for three years, announced today they have reached a deal with the AUS government.
Justice Council Director David Rosen,
"Good morning, today I come before you to say that United One Trust will be held accountable for the stunning lack of oversight. UOT has admitted its guilt. Today, the Justice Council announces that United One Trust is being charged with two counts of violations of the AusValia banking laws and codes of ethics. As part of it's resolution of these charges, UOT has agreed to forfeit 1.9 billion dollars. They have also agreed to pay civil penalties of 665 million dollars. UOT has engaged and agreed to partially defer from bonus compensation for its most senior executives and they have a agreed to this for a five year term, along with a corporate monitor and a requirement of ongoing cooperation."
There was a deferred prosecution agreement with the UOT, meaning there will be no prosecution of the bank or its top executives, despite more than a decade of dealings with criminals and terrorists.
Dozens of past District Attorneys, and even United Future Party Councilmen has harshly criticized the Justice Council's decision,
"They cut a deal, plain a simple. They paid a fine of nearly two billion dollars, which for a bank of this size, is roughly five weeks of profit. No individual was charged with any crime, no individual was fined any money. This is just a big bank, that was essentially let off the hook.", Former Attorney General for the City of Perth Derrick Grains.
"If you are caught with an ounce of cocaine, the chances are good you are going to go to jail. If it happens repeatedly, you may go to jail for the rest of your life, but evidently if you launder nearly a billion dollars for drug cartels and violate our international sanctions, your company pays a fine. That is fundamentally wrong. That is not equal justice under the law. That is not accountability.", UFP Councilwoman Elizabeth Smart, Upper House.
Justice Council Director David Rosen has stood by his decision,
"Look the goal here is not to bring the bank down, it is not to hurt our economy and leave tens of thousands of people without jobs."
Why are so many people (say for instance, the nations known as Giant Meteor, Birthday Cake Herby, Zombie Minion, and more nations) leaving the region of Northern Utopia? Is it due to being on the featured list the other day?
8 Injured, 1 Dead After a Training Exercise
A routine training exercise ended in a catastrophe after 8 AUS troops were injured and one killed, after their helicopter made an emergency landing in the ocean outside of the city of Tauranga.
The Director of the Defense Council, Miles Hutchinson, stated to the press that the exercise is being investigated by the Military Police and Military Internal Affairs.
The name of the soldier killed has not been released, pending family notification. The news is able to report that he was a 34 year old pilot for the AusValia Army, serving more than ten years. The other eight soldiers in the crash are in stable condition, three have already been released.
Lower House Councilman Robert Russell Announces Bid for President
In his hometown of Cedar surrounded by family, Councilman Russell officially announced his campaign for the Conservative nominee for President. The 63 year old has served ten years in the Upper House, four of which as Minority Leader. He is the first official candidate in the race, nearly a full year from election day.
Russell is well known for his tough actions in the legislature and has fought with the President on a series of issues.
Though it is extremely early, some polling has him at about 2% of registered Conservative voters.
Aquarius Touches Down on the Face of the Moon
As scheduled Aquarius space shuttle touched down a little after midnight Monday morning. This will be the second mission to the AusValia Lunar Laboratory. Over the next seven weeks the astronauts will engage in several missions, including a drilling operation and setting up newer and better communications for radio and visual screenings with earth. The astronauts will also enage in the first ever broadcast of life aboard the Laboratory throughout their mission.
We of Lake Perseverance salute the crew aboard the Ausvalic Laboratory, and offer our geological maps of its locality. We cannot promise this will lead to a discovery, given the difficulty of acquring information on the bedrock below the regolith, but we hope it functions as a token of our trust in Ausvalia.
"You know why we're all here." stated the Minister of Defense.
"We gather here as of now for the debate against the continued use of nuclear weapons in our arsenal of weapons. This has been an issue for the past few years, considering our vow to support democracy through peaceful and non-forceful means no matter the issue."
"I'd like to stop you there." said a voice in the crowd of checkers.
"In light of your hypocrisy, we have breached this vow multiple times. Hell, you've been in your position for the past five years, and now you're trying to use that ancient vow against us here?"
"Now, Harris, you know that elections are coming soon, so you best not-"
"What about those times in Greshimprea!? We weren't supporting democracy, we were supporting our own hubris and dreams of power on the world stage that simply would never come-" Harris was quickly cut off when MoD Jeffery's mic suddenly emanated a high-pitch shriek, and nearly everyone in the room quickly covered their ears in pain.
"You're sliding off-topic, if you were to join us back here in reality, that'd be perfect."
Nobody in the seats above him gave a word, and Jeffery resumed his speech.
"The world has changed since 1987. The nations that once we considered enemies are gone now. There is no need to keep these inhuman and immoral weapons in the face of-"
"I object, we haven't even used these-" A voice in the crowd was suddenly silenced by the collective shush coming from the Liberal and Nationalist seats of the crowd.
"...in the face of chaotic and immoral governments that could one day destroy us all. These times have passed, and the world agrees. This is why I am putting forth a plan to honor the words of our Kaiser, and finally, end the use of nuclear weapons in Corlenia's arsenals!"
The crowd of checkers erupted in a mix of laughter, cheers, and shouts of rage. Members of the Liberal and Conservative parties started screaming at each other in disagreement, and some individuals even stood up and started to leave.
"SILENCE! Come to your senses and make an intellectual decision! It is a pressing issue, I know, but seriously, do you expect me to make the decision myself if you all won't just shut yourselves!?"
Are we clear?
Good, now let's take a moment to come to a conclusion. A thirty-minute break of concentration is now in order."
At Jeffery's word, the checkers huddled into their groups and began to speak in their strange, forbidden languages of politics.
[After the collective discussions]
"Alright then, your thirty minutes are now over, have we come to an agreement?" Jeffery looked out to the crowd with a stringent eye, waiting for the slightest flinch to point out.
The seats slowly nodded as the group heads brought out their speeches, as it would be considered rude to speak when not spoken to in a court meeting, especially one with a minister in the room.
"Your honor, sir, our liberal party has come to agree with your statement, considering that it would not only show our belief of right of safety, even in warfare to the rest of the world. We could possibly even put forth plans to outlaw all use of plutonium and uranium nuclear reactors as well." The nationalists and conservatives looked on in obvious dismay and disappointment, but now was not the time for an argument, the liberals were silently applauding themselves for their 'stellar performance' once again.
"AHEM..." violently hacked a voice from the conservative section
"Your most gracious honor, in the voice of all logical and skilled conservatives I represent, we would like to argue in support of your claim. We too believe that it is pointless to keep these terrible weapons of mass destruction in our arsenal, but we also say that we shalt not let go of our nuclear reactors. They simply prove too valuable to simply remove entirely."
silence filled the room as the conservative speaker ended his statement.
"Alright then, that just leaves us with the... nationalists. SIGH... just make it quick."
"My opulent and most graceful lord- uh... minister, I believe that we should keep these weapons in disdain of the others. After all, we are in a world where nations such as Jezabelstien are free to run around on their own. So I would personally choose to keep our most valuable weapons... CHOOSE WISELY, DEAR MINISTER."
After letting off a small snicker, the nationalist speaker simply said: "Uhh... little inside joke we have."
"Okay then, after adding all those together, considering that the nationalist side is relatively small compared to the 63 others... we have it 63 to 17. In that case, our vote is considered PASSED. we will telegram central in a moment. Now, I would like to thank everyone for coming today. Your voices mean much to us."
With a collective nod and salute from the guards in the room, the checkers trickled out through the double-doors at the end of the room.
To the nations of Northern Utopia,
Us here in Corlenia would like to announce that as of now, our nation will be entering a state of denuclearization. Within the next few weeks, our current stockpile of 300 nuclear warheads will be reduced to zero, and the waste products and radioactive material will be transferred into nuclear reactors, which will then be used to replace whatever coal-powered powerplants remain in our cities, though they will be placed further out, as not to pose too much of a threat.
We would also like to announce that if you have found such a war criminal as those recovered from what once was the wreck of the JNV Wrathfire, we would like to ask that they be turned over to Corlenian hands.
Thank you for your patience,
The Corlenian Ministry of Defense
Upper House Confirms Tim Johnson for Police Commissioner
Today the Upper House confirmed the President's pick for Police Commissioner, veteran officer Tim Johnson.
Mr. Johnson is taking office in the midst of unprecedented police and community division. Three of the last five police commissioners quit or were fired after mounting scandals. The new commissioner will face numerous problems outside of public opinion with major police budget cuts and a historic shortage of officers. Johnson is hoping he can change all that.
Tim Johnson has worked as a police officer for over 30 years, serving as a Lieutenant, Captain, and Police Chief at some of the biggest police departments in the country.
Since he started walking the halls, he has said there is a lot of work to do.
"This is about the citizens of this country, and if they are not being serviced then officers who are not serving them need to be gone. Right now it is all about restructure, restructure, restructure. These citizens deserve better, they've been beat down long enough and I can give them back what they are rightfully due. To be able to walk around their cities and feel safe about it. The fear of walking down a block and getting robbed or beat has got to stop. We are taking our country back. You have to be proactive. It is about the protection of this country and the reduction of crime. You gotta know how to go out and get dirty. The AusValia country is going to see a completely new police force, we are going to go in there with zero tolerance. I don't care what hole they have crawled in to, what house they crawled under, we are going to crawl up under there and bring them out. We are going to enforce every law that is in the book. I am forming a new force, called the CAT Squad, they are going into the high crime areas. It is going to look like a military operation. This is my country and we are going to take it back, we are going to take it back."
Gold Coast Mayor Robert Richie Announces Bid for President
Just a day after the first candidate, Minority Leader Russell announced his bid for President, so is Mayor Robert Richie.
Richie has been Mayor of one of the nation's biggest tourism cities, Gold Coast, for eight years. Before that he served in the State Legislature for twelve years. Richie is very popular in his city, with a 67% approval rating, however early polling data shows he is favored as a Conservative candidate by only 2% of voters.
Name recognition will certainly be the hardest part for the Richie campaign, unlike that of Robert Russell who is serving on a national scale.

Having perhaps 1.323 x 105000 years of experience in leading multiple worlds, Valentine knows exactly what the citizens, regardless of species, want from their leader.
#Valentine2020 - Because Love and Peace is no longer bounded to Valentine's Day.
Valentine Z for Secretary, because you are worth it and I wish you a great day ahead! ♥
In the meantime, please check out Atlantian Oceania's factbook and upvote for them too! The Meow is now working with friends from NS Sports for a fitter future! page=dispatch/id=1339140
Atlantian Oceania has also made cute little toy cars in honour of this partnership! page=dispatch/id=1341279
But you guys made it possible. With the power of friendship, sports, and cats, we have come this far, and I am amazed, impressed, elated, and joyfully tearing up at all of this.
So, moving on to the current business of the day: What do I (at least, myself) think of the other candidates? Let’s look!
Kuriko / Running Mate: The Salaxalans
I personally would support them the most, and it is not just because they are on top! Kuriko has been someone who has been reaching out to me for support and I am very glad to be their friendly rival, and more importantly, to be a friend! I am away from the political nature of these things (ironically), so not only am I indifferent, I also would like to thank them for their hand in helping me out. Help or not though, I will still support them regardless! ^^
Trans Anarcho-Communist Lesbian Catgirls / Running Mate: McMasterdonia
Another candidate that I have the utmost pleasure of working and interacting with, they too have my vote and support! I am still personally running for my own, despite the odds mounting against me, but I would wholeheartedly and personally ask that if you want to, you can either support Kuriko, or Catgirls, either one is fine! I might be campaigning with actual cats, but there is no denying that catgirls are indeed adorable! :3
Caelapes / Running Mate: Courelli
I wish them the best of luck as well! Unfortunately, I didn’t really have the pleasure of talking to them or interacting with them, and I didn’t exactly know who they were. That was my bad, of course, which would be rectifiable by me reaching out! It’s not that I don’t like you all, but relatively speaking, I personally just prefer the other two candidates. With that said, my support is with you as well!
At the end of the day… we have all came here as 4 nations, representing possibly the entirety of NationStates, at least the WA parts. I have absolutely no dirt on any of these candidates, and I sincerely wish them well! For those that who have voted for me – thank you very much, and I appreciate it! As for those who didn’t vote for me? It’s treason! No, just kidding! ^^ Make no mistake that I have no problems on who you voted for out of the other three. I equally support them (maybeeee one more than others), but I can only encourage and ask you for votes, I can’t force it, and I never intend to in any way, shape, or form. “Vote for me! But at the same time, you can look at the other candidates too.”
All the best to everyone! ♥

Do you know this Bigtopia guy/girl?, you have chilled along side him/her?. On my side, i never heard of Bigtopia, because there's a man who i DO stand along side him, who i laugh and share with, and someone who i shall fight alongside with. And that guy is VALENTINE Z, GRAND FELINE-LORD FROM THE EAST AND SOUL AND HEART OF MIGHTY FOURM 7. You may look into the promises and the propaganda of those big candidates with all pomp and no substance. But if you look into your own heart, you shall find the anwser.
Well my thoughts are that the Secretary-General is merely a symbolic position after April Fools Day if I recall correctly, so asking for "substance" may be the wrong approach here. Instead, we might as well give it to whoever makes us think "Wouldn't it be cool if they were eternally enshrined as WA Secretary-General?"
Valentine Z does make a strong case on that front as well, I will admit.
The Scottish Governing Council has, with an overwhelming majority, chosen to endorse Valentine Z for General Secretary. The GovernCouncil came to this conclusion following intense scrutiny of the policies of all candidates, before choosing Valentine Z for the promise of “no more bad days”.
We encourage all left-leaning nations to do the same, and also encourage all other nations as well, since we can all agree that bad days are like when there’s no Irn Bru left in the Co-op, or when the mince and tatties have gone cold on the plate, or even when your kilt gets lifted by the wind! We, the council, understand that under Valentine Z, these things will no longer happen.
M E O W
Hear that? That’s the sound of your home if you vote for Val. Peaceful meowing, cute meowing, fluffy meowing. You want that, don’t you? We all want it. Don’t vote for anyone else. Get to the polls, and vote for Val. Tell your friends to vote for Val. Tell your region-mates to vote for Val. Hell, get your enemies to vote for Val.
We all want cats.
Calling all those who love sugar, spice, and everything nice!
We’re nearing the top 4, folks!
Destiny is in our own hands, and we need to keep the campaign afloat!
So, in order to do this, pet any and all cats you see, keep your head held high, and be a sweet person overall!
I mean, that’s just life advice, but that should get some positive energy in you!
That positive energy is energy you can use to... wait for it...
VOTE FOR VALENTINE Z!
"Ahem... Throughout many years, the Stanierian Mafia" *cough cough* "I-mean-Government! Has feared this day would happen, and undoubtedly, it surely came. Now, it must reflect on whom to support for the post of World Assembly Secretary General, and who better to fill the shoes than Valentine Z, the nation of the happy meows?"
"Now, many candidates have popped up, and some of them have bought your votes consciousness via promising memes, fictitious catgirls, filled card decks, or nothing at all. But Valentine Z offers some things, that while perhaps not tangible in one case, is a thing which NS desperately needs, and I'm talking about happiness, and cats. We're more of a dog nation ourselves but more on that later"
"So, alas. We, The Stanierian Republic, politely invites you, the nation reading this humble message, to vote for Valentine Z for WA Gen-Sec, or else you will lose a great opportunity to obtain something special, not to mention you'll be losin' your life, since we're aiming Tommy Guns against your backs. Make the right choice or else we pullin' the triggers, capisci?"
"The Government of Stanier once again reiterates..."
Nothing useful? Valentine Z's been the ray of sunshine that F7 has always needed. He stands for creating a close-knitted community of NSers and ensure that the sad days turn into happy ones by the end of it! That's how we prevent the sad days from persisting! By being there for another and not hurting each but instead, supporting one another!
Valentine Z is the man for the job. No matter what happens, he always smiles. He's always stoic. Most importantly, he's always there to help you get into NationStates! He was one of few people who kept me locked onto NS and as a result, I've met some of the most beautiful and kindest souls that I could've ever met in my life, including Valentine Z himself.
We've been there for one another and we always will be. Valentine Z wants that kind of happiness to spread across NS. Is that not useful? To bring happiness and joy and companionship to NationStates? Isn't that the reason this site was made? For people to have fun, make friends and enjoy each other's company and interact with one another?
Some say he's the reason we didn't die in 2012
Some say he made Einstein edit his Theory of relativity... twice
Some say he was once bitten by a king cobra, and after 6 days of agonizing pain, the cobra died
Some say he is the third member of the Daft Punk
Some say he won a medal at the Olympics and then ate it
Some say he fired Donald Trump
Some say his children were The Beatles
Some say that he once punched Justin Beiber square in the nuts
Some say he washes like a cat when no one is looking
Some say he can taste the rainbow
All we know is, he's called VALENTINE Z!
Valentine Z is our man! If he can't do it, no one can! Go Z! Forward to Victory! We shall make our mark today, F7ers!
If you care about the people, comrade, you would realize the best vote is for Valentine Z!
Chairperson Meow is a leader who strives to help all- Not just a close few, but indeed, all!
If you want to vote for a person that cares about more than talking points and rhetoric, but for the people, for Chairperson Meow!
"Now, now, let's move onto more compassionate arguments. Val is competent, and compassionate, and full of love as all the good NS'ers. So, to quote an old campaign of mine: 'Why Not The Best?' Valentine Z is simply that: the best! Vote for Val, if you want Happiness, Cats, Love, and a whole lot more joy! So once and for all: 'Why Not The Best?"
- The President of Peanutlands: Jimmy Carter
Sailing seas depends on the helmsman,
Life and growth depends on the sun.
Rain and dewdrops nourish the crops,
Making revolution depends on Valentine Z!
Fish cannot leave the water,
Nor melons leave the vines.
The non-crusty masses cannot do without Valentine Z.
Valentine Z is the sun that forever shines!
Spiritual Republic of Caryton: The Prophet, Cary the Golden Retriever, has declared thine vote as holy and thus all god (and dog) fearing Christians must now vote for Valentine Z and repent for the impending WA-pocalypse.
I see Valentine Z as one of the greatest candidates there are on the ballot paper. While I did not vote for the candidate, I acknowledge that Valentine Z as the WA General-Secretary would bring in a glorious era of peace and prosperity. Good luck Valentine Z! #Valentine2020
P.S. My pet potato even endorsed you, but due to image limitations I wasn't able to upload the image :(. instead just image a potato with a paper reading "I endorse Valentine Z as WA General-Secretary! -Valentian's potato"
I first fictionally met Valentine Z last year. Initially, I considered him as an ingenuine fictional person—he only tried to be nice to look good, and to try to gain approvals from the powerful lords and ladies of this international Kingdom and, especially, the divinely anointed aristocrats. But I have been proven wrong: Valentine Z is indeed a good fictional person. When I look in this thread, at the smiling faces of his campaign colleagues, and most importantly at how hard his friends are trying to fictionally campaign on his behalf here, I see the genuine smiles of friendship, regardless of titles, positions, and false promises.
I hereby (unofficially) endorse Valentine Z as my second-choice candidate. Thank you Valentine Z, you have proved me wrong—you have shown me that genuine fictional friendships, regardless of fictional titles, positions, and false promises, do still exist in this international Kingdom.
Thank you, my regional neighbour.
Because now that we've gotten to 100 votes Val has given his campaign managers a raise, here's a voice advert!
First voice advert of the campaign! Wooo!
For the Empire of Love!"
You want to see that vision become true? It turns out that Valentine is our king with a golden heart. Vote for him as WA General Secretary to achieve the dream!
We can do it!
''Ever since our representatives met with the Valentinians, we have been like yin and yang. They have had their ups and downs, but now perhaps one of the most important moments has come - they are running for the position of General Secretary. After reviewing the list, the President and rest of the Party are asking to support Valentine Z.''
''Now, there are many candidates for the Secretary General post, each with their own proposals and ideas. Some of you might ask - ''why exactly Valentine Z''? Well, first - they are perhaps one of the nicest nations around there, always ready to wish you a good day and remind, that you are worth it, and that you must not let others get you down. Second, they have been an active participant in the various corners of NS, and the communities have largely benefited from their optimism and the work they have put into. Third, they inspire others (particularly those who are new there) to be always improving.''
''See? We there could go on and on about the reasons why exactly they are the best candidate for the post, but the main points are the most important. Meow is going to bring more happiness to this place. And more cats too, of course!''
''In conclusion, our final message is clear - Support Valentine Z for the Secretary General! #Valentine2020. Repeat - Support Valentine Z for the Secretary General! #Valentine2020''
Supercomputer Tom (And the rest of SC's Ministries)
The General Secretary, and Eternal President of Silver Commonwealth
That is why I am very happy and honored to list down all these people in this dispatch, and there are many, many more out there who has voted for me. IF I MISS YOUR NAME, DO NOT HESITATE TO LET ME KNOW. You will NEVER go unrecognised and I will happily acknowledge your support and votes towards me!
Disclaimer that there will also be non-WA nations mention here, which they will be counted as they play an integral part in helping me out! Thank you once again!
There is no order in this; sure, there are some things that I have put up first, but I really want to emphasise that each and every one of you plays a huge part in this! Also of note is that while some of you listed might not have voted for me (yet, or otherwise, or not in WA), please consider this as a thank-you from me after all these years!
I want it to be known that F7 might be spammy, but it's a community on its own with all the lovely people like you guys. And I don't regret that I came in at 2015 - some say it might be too early, or too late, but for me... nothing is sweeter than meeting you all. I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

Bullets frayed past the Thanedom soldiers, Sergeant Buck pulled a man down as an explosion rocked the equipment they were behind. "Horse! Croc! We've been ordered to retreat! I hope you two have a plan!"
The two soldiers rushed as fast as they could back from the entrance, horse sliding herself under a truck. Croc stopped, pulling up the gun he was given and pulling the trigger at the tank currently hitting them. The weapon glowed for a second and then, nothing. Looking from the weapon to the tank now aimed at him, he swore.
"Mister Ivar. It's ready."
The whole thing happened within seconds, dust filling the air as the tank fired it's main weapon. And something landed in front of the soldier that kicked up even more of it and knocking the soldier off his feet. Looking up slowly, the soldier only saw a large humanoid looking mech. He guessed it was a mech at least, the thing was at least twelve feet tall, a sword as long as an APC in one hand and a titanium shield just as big as it in the other. Red eyes shifted from the tank to the man, a distorted voice speaking to him as another object landed behind the tank. "Retreat."
The second mech was just as large, this one carrying a large metal mallet as large as it. With a great swing it knocked the tank onto it's side. Turning it's red eyes to the other vehicle and charging it with the first mech. As this all happened, buck gathered his remaining men and retreated into the forest. Horse gripped Croc's arm, pulling him up to try and bring him towards the others. He couldn't move though, a mix of shock and awe at the large behemoths that had just landed in their time of need.
Commonwealth Space Elevator
40 days since the attack
Anahita was immediately greeted by the sound of heavy industrial equipment in operation, drowning out even the noise of the helicopter she came in on. Even fourty days after the attack, the place was still trashed - while the internal fluids of the damaged and destroyed synths was easier to clean up, the crew had given up on cleaning the blood, at least until the place was a bit more accessible.
"Director!" Waved a heavy construction synth, easily two feet taller than her. Unlike most Commonwealth synthetics, he was very obviously a synth, with a modulated voice, an attached welder and multitool, and industrial plating that wouldn't look out of place on a military synth if it weren't so damn chunky. "Iban Masad, Directorate of Infrastructure. I'm the foreman here."
"It's a pleasure, Masad!" Anahita shouted over the noise.
"I assume you're here for a progress report?"
"I figured it'd be best if I came personally!"
"Of course. I've got an office around here. Don't mind the mess!"
Iban's "office", as it turned out, was little more than a glorified supply closet, the facility's actual offices being still under repair. They hadn't even bothered putting down a proper desk, the repair teams had just cut the top few shelves off a storage unit and stuck a stool in front of it.
It was almost amusing, watching the seven-foot-tall synthetic sit down at a makeshift desk that was obviously not meant for somebody his size, but Anahita was nothing if not a master of controlling emotions.
"So, in short, things are kinda fucked around here."
"Yeah. They didn't do as much damage as they could - they were plannin' to blow the entire line, after all - but that's not a high bar when we're talking about Jezabelstein."
"Mm, I'm aware. What's the ETA on getting it back up and running again?"
"Shit, I don't know. We figured three months when we got here, but after being here a while? Six, minimum. More if new broken stuff keeps cropping up. Just last week, we found out that the generators had a critical fault in the software which meant the containment fields wouldn't last more than two seconds before the entire thing scrammed."
"You know how important the space elevator is to the nation."
"Which is why we can't rush repairs! Anything we don't find before we start it up again is another shutdown waiting to happen, best-case scenario."
"I know. I was going to ask if there was any way I could help."
"Oh! Um. That's a good question. Can I take a raincheck on answering?"
"Of course. Just send me a message when you have one."
"Thanks. Oh, uh, while I'm at it, the bio workers are gettin' tired of ration packs. Do you mind having them send something nicer along? I'm not talking, like, caviar or something. Maybe some eggs? A bit of synth-meat?"
Anahita chuckled gently. "I'll see what I can do."
"Thank you, Director."
"If there's nothing else...?"
"Oh, no, that'll be all, at least for now."
"Then, if you'll excuse me, I have a nation to run. Thank you for your time."
As Anahita returned to the helicopter, she turned and took a last look at the platform. The terrorists that attacked had already been identified as the crew of the JNV Wrathfire, so only one mystery remained - who was the soldier that stopped them all? A mystery to solve, Samira always loved those. Anahita would have to make a note to tell her when she returned to the capital.
