Elmo Thudd's name and description sounds like that of cartoon character Elmer Fudd, hunter and nemesis of the wascally wabbit Bugs Bunny.
The researcher Reynard Moulder alludes to The X-Files' Fox Mulder ("renard" is French for "fox") who was also known for "wanting to believe".
The New Age mystic leader Jefferson Aeroglider is likely meant to suggest psychedelic rock band Jefferson Airplane/Starship.

Oh yeah, thinking back, Fudd did come to mind briefly. Also:

1,433: Green Thumbs Sore

The Issue
Sensing a lucrative business opportunity, several major corporations attempted to capitalize on the nation’s eco-friendly attitude by marketing every single one of their products with dubious claims such as “environmentally safe,” “divinely blessed by Mother Nature herself,” and everything in between. With scores of activists grumbling about the “greenwashing,” the burden falls on you to broker a green peace.

The Debate
0.) “I don’t see the problem here,” says United Information Technology CEO Bob Bourdain, teasing you with some 100% recyclable organic Urists. “It’s not as though we’re lying to people: all of our product packaging contains so many pro-environment exhortations that people reading the labels basically have no choice but to embrace the green craze! If that’s not ‘all profits go towards supporting the environment,’ I don’t know what is!”

Accept

1.) “Not as though you’re lying?” shrieks random activist Gretel Harel, smacking what she assures you is not a 100% recyclable organic petition down on your desk. “This is making a mockery out of all our efforts! ‘Green this, green that’ - it has to end! If a company wants to put environmental claims in their advertising, they need to back them up with scientific facts.”

Accept

2.) “Allow me to, ahem... advertise a solution,” cackles East Lebatuckese diplomat Louis O'Bannon, spreading some ‘Splendor in Socialism’ propaganda brochures on your desk. “As long as you have greedy profit-oriented capitalists, this hoodwinking is bound to happen. If you just brought all manufacturing and merchandising under state control like we do, all comrades - I mean consumers - could make well-informed decisions about what to buy.”

#1427: May the Fourth Estate Be With You [Cretox State; ed: Electrum]
The Issue
All hail @@LEADER@@! As the nation enters yet another period of unbounded success, your infinitely dedicated and even more competently selected advisors are working hard to further consolidate your power, with counsel on how your flawless government should wield the undeniably correct state-run media.

The Debate
  1. “We must ensure that you are forever in people’s hearts and minds,” says your Minister of Truth, patriotically cutting traitorous ministers out of official photographs with a pair of safety scissors. “You must be referenced in every article of every publication. Also, the front pages of all the newspapers will now be dedicated exclusively to your life’s story, like the time you wrote a true crime novel at the age of four. Long live the @@TYPE@@!”
  2. “A glorious regime is nothing without its unrivaled military might!” declares Supreme Generalissimo Who Crushes Enemies Winston Perez, who’s had your back since the beginning. “Undying trust in our armed forces begets undying trust in you. We must use our media apparatus to tell wonderful yet plausible and completely correct tales of our military triumphs in faraway lands. Long live the @@TYPE@@!”
    Effect: the nation won three wars against Brancaland this weekend
  3. “We should make our populace learn to love you, not fear you, even though no sane person would ever fear you,” meekly suggests junior minister Calvin Watterson, cowering behind the Generalissimo. “If people are constantly reminded of the high standard of living the government provides for them, no one would dare question your authority.” He stares at the floor, waiting for the next speaker. “Oh! I almost forgot, sorry. Long live the @@TYPE@@.”
  4. “I say, your guidance has proven so potent that you no longer require the unnecessary burden of operating a state-run media,” says former media tycoon Imogen Dawson, choosing her words tactfully. “With your divine blessing, reintroducing privately operated media will demonstrate to our eternally grateful people that you hear the voices of others, however flawed those voices may be compared to yours. Long live and all that jazz.”

NationStates Issues **SPOILER ALERT**

#1420: Trading Climate Sours [Refuge Isle; ed: Noahs Second Country]

The Issue
Your refusal to sign a landmark climate treaty has resulted in bitter trade relations with some of the countries who did sign it. A number of imported items have run out of stock nationwide, causing them to be replaced with odd substitutes, which are now also out of stock. Upon realizing that the pitcher formerly containing luxury mangosteen juice is instead a strange concoction of vinegar and pineapple extract, everyone at the table is now looking at you with distaste.

The Debate
1. “So it has come to this!” cries Naomi Berenstein, your Minister of Health and Safety, armed with several bandoliers of vitamin C supplements. “Just go back to Brancaland and say that you didn’t SEE the treaty. Of course we would have signed it if only we had known! Though you may want to suggest some... minor amendments, to say the least.” She hands a quantity of flaxseeds and a jar of applesauce in a 2:1 ratio to you. “For luck.”

2. “First they tell us to bankrupt our country by making reforms that we can’t afford, and now they’re trying to make sure we’ll stay poor by cutting off our trade?” roars your Minister of Commerce, Wally Guterres, writing with a series of crudely whittled charcoal sticks. “We just need to find new trade partners. If we set all the terms, we can end this acrid drought and continue to run on what has made the world’s economy work for centuries. Items like coal, oil, plaster sculptures of your face — and now there’s even less competition for all three!”

3. “I knew this would happen ever since the man on AM radio said it would,” grumbles retired military officer Bongani Nelson, unfolding his wrist watch into cutlery before attacking a thirty-year-old survival meal kit. “Treaties are just how the globalist elite get you to turn over your sovereignty. If we need something, anything at all, we should make it ourselves! Let’s start making our own products straight from Nosaman soil, even if they don’t grow here, even if they don’t grow at all!”

#1421: Have Your Cake and Don’t Eat It [Wischland; ed: The Free Joy State]

The Issue
Avery Phillips, a young dancer, recently collapsed with the complications of what was revealed to be anorexia nervosa while dancing in the small, televised role of ‘Girl Waiting for Pater Maxxmas’. National attention has now been drawn to the growing prevalence of eating disorders and related hospitalizations in @@NAME@@, especially among the dance community.

The Debate
1. “Here’s some food for thought,” says psychologist Des Carter, handing you a copy of his new book Cogeato Ergo Sum: I Eat, Therefore I Am. “Eating disorders are growing year on year, in both male and female @@DEMONYMPLURAL@@. They may be the result of low self-esteem, body dysmorphia, or can be comorbid with other psychological disorders. Due to the high morbidity, it is vital that you subsidize psychiatric in-patient treatment and prevent future eating disorders by encouraging citizens to attend government funded therapy. Now, why don’t you lie down on this couch and tell me how you feel...”

2. “Wake up and smell the coffee!” cries Honey @@RANDOMNAME@@, mother of the collapsed teenager. “The true cause of these eating disorders is all the pressure in today’s hypercompetitive, ultra-connected world. Every member of the @@CAPITAL@@ Ballet corps de ballet has a teeny-tiny waist and skinny legs, and it’s ridiculous! My poor child felt she’d never be pretty unless she was severely underweight. Sponsor media promotions of more healthy body proportions, and ban anyone who’s simply too thin from working in sport, dance, or any role where they can be seen by vulnerable youngsters!”

3. “Please, dar-link, this ‘healthy figure’ is so last season,” scoffs cadaverous fashion magazine editor Karla Field, covering the downy hair on her emaciated arms with her plum suit’s sleeves. “Only flabby mummies who stuff their faces with fatty snack-foods object to skinny women, because they feel inferior knowing their own beautiful bones were swallowed by layers of flesh. That’s not our problem. Women who eschew the ravages of food should be praised, not labelled mentally ill. My magazine will even fund a contest to crown Miss Mosquito — the thinnest, most dietetically controlled woman in @@NAME@@ — and provide you with something to replace that monstrosity you’re currently wearing. How about it?”

4. “The obvious solution to eating disorders is to ensure every @@DEMONYM@@ gets the right calories and nutrients,” interjects your Minister of Health, Lettuce @@RANDOMNAME@@. “And how? With a simple law requiring that every citizen eats healthily and to the exact amount required, enforced by monitoring eyes in kitchens, regulated mealtimes, government distributed shopping lists and recipes and ‘clean plate monitors’ to help everybody finish their din-dins... even if they don’t want to. As the icing on the cake, this would also allow us to prevent people from becoming overweight. Of course, it’ll require a lot of oversight, and control of the national food supply, but my department can handle it.”

#1422: Who Comes Up With This Ship? [Sedgistan; ed: Pogaria]

The Issue
It’s a terrible day. Woken early from dreams of joyfully frolicking @@NATIONALANIMALPLURAL@@, you are dragged to the naming ceremony of the latest @@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@ Navy ship. Lashed by more rain than an Albionian could cope with, the sky is the same steely grey as the oversized hulk of metal everyone is making a fuss about, and thanks to the woolen kilt your advisors insisted was “traditional”, the wind is whistling right where you don’t want it to. You thought it couldn’t get any worse, but just as you grasp the ceremonial bottle of bubbly and utter the words, “I hereby name this ship...” you realise you have no idea what the damned thing is to be called.

The Debate
1. One glance at @@RANDOMNAME_1@@, your Minister for Creative Solutions, tells you @@HE_1@@ won’t be any help today. For once bereft of ideas, @@HE_1@@’s studiously avoiding your gaze by pretending to examine a spot off on the distant horizon. What would get
@@HIS_1@@ goat? Ah, of course — a cold, efficient and utterly unimaginative name.

2. To @@HIS_1@@ right is the perpetually nervous Religious Affairs Minister, @@RANDOMFEMALENAME_2@@, fiddling with @@HIS_2@@ prayer beads as @@HE_2@@ considers @@HIS_2@@ many religious affairs. You can just imagine @@HIS_2@@ reedy, patronising voice telling you to name the ship after a devout godly figure. Of course, there’s some @@HE_2@@’d prefer to forget — who was that patron saint of altar boys?

3. Resolutely staring past your left shoulder is the ever-pompous Rear Admiral @@RANDOMMALENAME_3@@. What would wipe the smirk off @@HIS_3@@ meaty jowls? Perhaps a dashing, daring name of old, like “Warspite” or “Thundercracker”. But with a twist...

4. And of course there’s your office intern @@RANDOMFEMALENAME_4@@, looking smugly right back at you. Of course @@HE_4@@ knows just what the ship should be called, but all @@HE_4@@’s mouthing at you is “Shippy McShipface” — or at least you hope that’s what it is. Oh, to hell with it. Who says you can’t name a ship after yourself?

#1423: A Slice of the Pi [Candlewhisper Archive; ed: Candlewhisper Archive]

The Issue
Recently, a tech firm from the United Federation used a network of computers and the latest algorithms to calculate pi to an incredible number of decimal places, smashing the previous world record by several orders of magnitude.

The Debate
1. “We can break that United Federation record right here in @@NATION@@, I know it!” exclaims excitable mathematician @@RANDOMMALENAME@@, dancing around you with a manic look on @@HIS@@ face. “All we need is a great big network of super-computers, with customised software, and a year or two of dedicated runtime. I’ve got some ideas for exciting new formulae that will make Chudnovsky look like a chump. I mean, what could be cooler than mathematics and computer programming?”

2. “Look, the pursuit of a list of numbers is just academic frippery and posturing,” moans knitwear-clad structural engineer @@RANDOMFEMALENAME@@. “Even physicists don’t bother using values of pi to more than 160 decimal places, so there’s no practical purpose here. Government research and academic subsidies should be focused purely on subjects which have real-world applications and a sound case for projected economic or societal benefit. You know, like my underfunded research on drainage applications of composite 3D-printed concrete micro-structures with resin polymer interior scaffolding. It’s really fascinating stuff. Here, I wrote a paper on it...”

3. “Nerd alert!” yells former high school quarterback turned fry chef @@RANDOMNAME@@, shoulder barging between the two previous speakers, and knocking them to the ground. “Yeah! Feel that impact! Freight train comin’ through! Y’know, the best thing to do here is not to spend money on all this geek stuff at all. School of hard knocks, that’s the lesson plan these weaklings need!” @@HE@@ demonstrates with @@HIS@@ fists.

4. “Honestly, I’ve never liked pi. It’s just so... irrational,” says Minister of Mathematical Certainty Eddie Goodwin. “Can’t we just legislate so that everybody in @@NATION@@ uses a @@DENOUNYMADJECTIVE@@ definition of pi? Let’s just say pi is 3.2. I mean, that’s true anyway for a given curvature of space time. Just say 3.2, and leave it at that, eh?”

#1424: Here’s Looking at Zoo, Kid [Socio Polor; ed: Electrum]

The Issue
Following the abolition of zoos, an ecological report has found that a large proportion of released zoo animals have not survived in the wild because they spent most of their lives in captivity.

The Debate
1. “I totally saw this coming,” asserts a pair of talking giraffe’s legs, who you realise is actually the former director of the @@CAPITAL@@ Zoo wearing a giraffe costume on stilts. “It’s a sad scene, isn’t it? Those poor giraffes alone in the wilderness with no way of defending themselves from predators like those supercilious tigers. The public are understandably mad that these exotic animals have no chance of surviving in the wild. The answer is simple: let us recapture all of our animals to save them from themselves and we’ll re-exhibit them once more.”

2. “If you knew this would happen, then why didn’t you prepare the animals before their release?” questions the notoriously catty Secretary of Wildlife Conservation, Beryl Caskin. “Training and rehabilitation are what we need here. We’ll get our people into the wild to hone these animals’ survival instincts by demonstrating to them the behaviours that they will need to survive. For example, we could teach tigers how to stalk their prey or giraffes to whack would-be predators with their necks. A film crew can even follow us around, which will raise public awareness on wildlife conservation without the need for zoos.”

3. “Any human intervention is too much human intervention,” says Konrad Scheer, the head of the Special Protection of Animals Movement. “Besides, the government should be focusing on highly endangered animals such as the @@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@ horny toad. Can you believe there’s only twenty of them left? We can’t risk their extinction. It would be nice if we instead left endangered animal species alone in their own protected reserves, away from other animals, with a never-ending supply of food.”

#1425: @@LEADER@@’s New Clothes [The United Lands of Ash; ed: The Free Joy State]

The Issue
In the midst of another busy day, you trip on a misplaced paperweight and tear your favorite pants on a nail haphazardly jutting out of your office’s door frame.

The Debate
1. “Oh, this just won’t do!” tuts your aunt, an aspiring seamstress, holding two giant off-color swatches against your torn pants leg. “I’ll get this fixed right up, dearie! A few patches here and stitches there and they’ll be as good as new! Sad that so few people make-do-and-mend these days. Now, pass me your little pants.”

2. @@RANDOMNAME@@, representative of the ancient tailors The Leader’s Men, strolls into your office. “It is time for you get new clothes anyway. Let us ditch these old rags and get you something more stylish. I see a classic yet breathable fabric that is sweat and bullet resistant, tailored to flatter your form and worn with ascots — not brogues.”

*3. Two brightly dressed tailors stumble into your office. “We’ve got just the thing for you, your mightiness! The greatest clothes in history, made just for your glorious self.” The first tailor flicks open a suitcase, revealing... nothing. “As you see, this fine cloth is lighter than air. Feel the fabric. Many have begged for it. Surely, oh intelligent one, you can feel the delicate weave? These clothes are the future! People will praise your forward-thinking. Don’t worry about the price; we’ll just forward our small fee to your accountant.”

*4. Two brightly dressed men stumble into your office, with tailoring tape around their necks. “We’ve got just the thing for you, your mightiness! The greatest clothes in history, made just for your glorious self.” The first man flicks open a suitcase, revealing... nothing. “As you see, this fine cloth is lighter than air. Feel the fabric. It is too exquisite to waste on those buffoons at the @@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@ Clothing Council. Surely, oh intelligent one, you can feel the delicate weave? These clothes are the future! People will praise your forward-thinking. Don’t worry about the price; we’ll just forward our small fee to your accountant.”

5. “Malarkey! Why don’t you just dress like everyone else?” chimes your gardener through the window, watering the flowers on your desk along with everything and everyone in the room. “It’ll cost the taxpayer less, you’ll be more relatable, and you won’t need to fuss about all that fancy-schmancy stuff! Heck, why not encourage all government officials to wear clothes that are affordable to the average @@DEMONYM@@!”

#1426: She’s a Keeper [Honeydewistania & Australian rePublic; ed: Electrum]

The Issue
A recent top division women’s football match set the lowest all-time attendance record of just five people.

The Debate
1. “Women’s football is losing the federation a lot of money,” sighs @@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@ Football Federation president Seth Blather as he polishes his pricey Spinex watch. “It’s a catch-22. No one wants to watch women’s football because it is lower quality, but we can’t invest in player development without a paying audience. The whole industry will collapse without government funding. We’ll use the money to develop grassroots sport, hire professional managers, and fund executive team incentives every time we meet ambitious targets such as doubling attendance in women’s matches. What were the attendance numbers again?”

2. “The government should discourage girls playing boy sports and the other way around!” suggests an acne-ravaged teenager, who has enough oil on his face to justify an invasion from the United Federation. “For example, football and @@ANIMAL@@ball are for men while beach volleyball and foxy boxing are for women. After all, nobody’s going to pay to watch tomboys playing a man’s game or some effeminate blokes throwing around a netball like an idiot.”

3. “Why don’t we force professional sporting leagues to schedule men’s and women’s doubleheaders for every match?” proposes your Minister of Alternative Solutions, who is scrubbing the office toilet with a sponge attached to a drill after he used your toilet brush as a replacement for a missing door stop. “That way, we’ll fix the attendance problem, men and women can split the revenue equally, and sports fans get double the action! What could go wrong?”

#1427: May the Fourth Estate Be With You [Cretox State; ed: Electrum]

The Issue
All hail @@LEADER@@! As the nation enters yet another period of unbounded success, your infinitely dedicated and even more competently selected advisors are working hard to further consolidate your power, with counsel on how your flawless government should wield the undeniably correct state-run media.

The Debate
1. “We must ensure that you are forever in people’s hearts and minds,” says your Minister of Truth, patriotically cutting traitorous ministers out of official photographs with a pair of safety scissors. “You must be referenced in every article of every publication. Also, the front pages of all the newspapers will now be dedicated exclusively to your life’s story, like the time you wrote a true crime novel at the age of four. Long live the @@TYPE@@!”

2.“A glorious regime is nothing without its unrivaled military might!” declares Supreme Generalissimo Who Crushes Enemies Winston Perez, who’s had your back since the beginning. “Undying trust in our armed forces begets undying trust in you. We must use our media apparatus to tell wonderful yet plausible and completely correct tales of our military triumphs in faraway lands. Long live the @@TYPE@@!”


3. “We should make our populace learn to love you, not fear you, even though no sane person would ever fear you,” meekly suggests junior minister Calvin Watterson, cowering behind the Generalissimo. “If people are constantly reminded of the high standard of living the government provides for them, no one would dare question your authority.” He stares at the floor, waiting for the next speaker. “Oh! I almost forgot, sorry. Long live the @@TYPE@@.”
“I say, your guidance has proven so potent that you no longer require the unnecessary burden of operating a state-run media,” says former media tycoon Imogen Dawson, choosing her words tactfully. “With your divine blessing, reintroducing privately operated media will demonstrate to our eternally grateful people that you hear the voices of others, however flawed those voices may be compared to yours. Long live and all that jazz.”

--------------------------------------------------------------
#1428: In the Bag [Indusse; ed: Electrum]

The Issue
A Bigtopian diplomatic bag was accidentally searched by customs officers, contrary to diplomatic conventions. Before the search was stopped, the bag was found to contain cocaine brownies, snortable marijuana, gold leaf toilet paper rolls, and jars of whale oil. Even though the bags were promptly handed over to the Bigtopian embassy, questions have been raised about this discovery.

The Debate
1. “This is the most obvious case of smuggling I’ve ever seen!” says customs officer @@RANDOMNAME@@, oblivious to a man wearing a trenchcoat full of fake watches sneaking through the checkpoint behind @@HIM@@. “Those Bigtopians are abusing our trust by bringing in all manner of illegal items, and not paying duties on the legal ones. You need to punish the Bigtopians by expelling them immediately, even if it exposes us as breaking diplomatic conventions.”

2. “Why do we allow diplomatic bags anyway?” asks one of your aides. “Just treat embassy luggage the same as any other luggage, subject to the exact same rules and examination as everybody else’s bags.”

3. “While diplomatic bags aren’t meant to contain contraband, the greater fault is ours,” observes your Minister of Protocol. “To open a diplomatic bag — even accidentally — is a major breach of trust. Embassies being allowed to confidentially send documents and communications to their own governments is the basis of international diplomacy. Also, dare I say it, our own diplomatic bags carry sensitive information back to us from other nations which are critical to our intelligence community. Apologise to the Bigtopians, claim you didn’t look closely at the contents, and offer them a hefty payment in contrition for our impoliteness."

4. “The illegal products aren’t as important as the concealed intel,” agrees spymaster ‘N’, while searching your briefcase without permission. “Imagine the valuable intelligence we could find by covertly opening every country’s diplomatic bags. We could learn military secrets, along with the names of foreign spies within our country, then replicate their passports for espionage. We can blackmail couriers, walk them through hidden scanners, and employ tradecraft in other subtler ways to compromise the bags. It’s the right thing to do for our glorious @@TYPE@@.”

--------------------------------------------------------------
#1429: The Wind Become Death [Westinor; ed: Candlewhisper Archive]

The Issue
Recent studies of becquerel-burdened berries have found that radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons testing in Althaniq has been carried into @@NAME@@ by transoceanic jet streams.

The Debate
1. “Althaniq might be keen to join the big boys at the nuclear-capable club, but this sort of sloppiness makes it clear they’re not ready,” comments your Minister of International Patronisation. “@@NAME@@ is like an elder sibling to Althaniq — tell them that they don’t need a nuclear weapons program, because they’re already under our protection. In fact, tell them they have to cease all testing now and in perpetuity, if they want to stay on our good side, and pay reparations for the harm they’ve done. They gotta remember their place.”

2. “No, can you not see? This is the danger of raw, unadulterated nuclear power!” cries nuclear disarmament activist @@RANDOMFEMALENNAME@@ as she manically waves around a Geiger counter that clicks worryingly as it sweeps past your groin area. “These weapons imperil our very means of life — the ramifications of radiation spare no one. Althaniq must cease their nuclear ambitions, and we should lead by example. Disarm now!”

3. “How boring, like I haven’t heard that two hundred and thirty-five times already,” yawns nuclear scientist @@RANDOMMALENAME@@. “Look, Althaniq is only doing nuclear tests because they’re decades behind advanced nations like ours. We did all our testing decades ago, and there’s really no need for them to repeat all that messy business. Just share our technical knowledge with them, and we’ll be even closer allies than before.”

4. “We should use these jet streams to our advantage,” whispers your Minister of Stealth Bombing as he materialises out of nowhere. “Our scientists have compiled a detailed map of jet stream systems — correctly employ these, and we can secretly detonate dirty bombs in the middle of nowhere, while still delivering cancer and illness into the heart of enemy nations.”

#1430: Taking the Peace? [Candlewhisper Archive; ed: Candlewhisper Archive]

The Issue
The Nobble Peace Prize is an international accolade that is ostensibly awarded to individuals that work for fraternity between nations, reduce standing armies and promote peace. To your surprise, the Skandilundian council that picks the winners has let you know that this year they intend to award it to you. You receive the news while on a military base, welcoming home divisions of battle-hardened soldiers fresh from ongoing conflicts on the Tasmanian border.

The Debate
1. “Looks like the Peace Prize Committee has been convinced to celebrate your pacifism,” laughs Brigadier General @@RANDOMNAME@@, offering you a clipboard to sign off the latest military budget increase. “That’s a victory for our chaps in the diplomatic corps, pulling strings and working their magic and reframing our military activities as being for global good. You should be proud of them and the propaganda wars they fight on your behalf. Better get working on an acceptance speech, eh?”

2. “Maybe we should instead be trying to make ourselves worthy of the prize?” suggests your niece, symbolically swatting at the military officer with an olive branch. “Bring overseas troops home, honourably discharge them from service and begin a process of demilitarisation. Like I always say to my mum, there’s no need to be so hostile.”

3. “Ha, these feeble Skandilunders are terrified of us, and they’re trying to placate us by offering us this petty tribute,” laughs your Minister of Bovine Disruption of Porcelain Retail. “We should accept the prize, but suggest that rather than a cash prize, perhaps they could cede us a little territory, maybe those halite mines in the northwest. We can deploy the army along their border to emphasise the strength of your opinion.”

--------------------------------------------------------------
#1431: Just Deserts for Desertion? [Baggieland; ed: Pogaria]

The Issue
Every year, the nation comes together to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in defence of @@NAME@@. While the majority of the population partakes in this act of remembrance, a small number of families dread this day — the relatives of those who were executed after being found guilty of desertion. Recently released documents have suggested that many were killed as a result of sham trials.

The Debate
1. “My great-uncle @@RANDOMMALEFIRSTNAME@@ was no coward,” sobs @@RANDOMFEMALEFIRSTNAME1@@ @@RANDOMLASTNAME@@, as she cradles a photo of her relative. “The military records show that he retreated from combat while under attack. However, his letters to his wife explain that he was trying to get to higher ground so that he could pick off the enemy with his sniper rifle. He was accused of abandoning his post and was tried by officers who weren’t anywhere near him at the time, all without a lawyer present. All I ask is for a posthumous pardon — for him and any other veterans who were illegitimately convicted — so that at the next remembrance service, I can lay a wreath with pride knowing that he served his country.”

2. “That’s preposterous!” proclaims General @@RANDOMNAME2@@, as @@HE2@@ stares at @@RANDOMFEMALEFIRSTNAME1@@ with suspicion. “Pardoning those deserters would be an insult to those who died honourably on the battlefield. Moreover, everyone was tried fairly by officers who were proficient in the laws of the day. To be quite honest, I feel the army has gone too soft in recent years and stricter punishments for cowardice should be introduced.”

3. “Why is it only the deceased being considered for pardons?” probes @@RANDOMNAME3@@, a specialist in criminal law, as @@HE3@@ grasps the lapels of @@HIS3@@ jacket. “One of my clients in the armed forces was sentenced to hard labor after a very dubious trial. Critical evidence was declared inadmissible, and the eyewitness statements were questionable at best. We should set up a special commission to re-evaluate all of these dodgy convictions. Furthermore, all military tribunals should be replaced with ordinary civilian trials that have proper oversight from our judiciary.”

4. “Let’s test these blighters to see if cowardice runs in their blood,” suggests @@RANDOMNAME4@@, your Director of Covert Operations, as @@HE4@@ discreetly clips a tiny spy camera to @@RANDOMFEMALEFIRSTNAME1@@’s handbag. “We can send them out to nations with whom we have not-so-friendly relations, Blackacre for one. Put them on a dangerous espionage mission, such as stealing a sample of those bio-weapons we all know they’re working on. If they succeed... Grandpappy gets his pardon. We might even find ourselves a few decent spies — they’re so difficult to come by these days.”

--------------------------------------------------------------
#1432: Oh Dear [Vaddeem; ed: Candlewhisper Archive]

The Issue
Shared videos and whispered rumours of a strange creature lurking in the woods near @@CAPITAL@@ have been going viral on the internet.

The Debate
1. “I heard this rascally rabid cryptid has cloven hooves, like a devil. It’s clearly a dangerous threat to @@NATION@@ and must be terminated!” exclaims Defence Secretary Elmo Thudd, adjusting the earflaps on his rabbit fur hunter’s hat. “If we allow this beast to continue roaming our land, it will surely lead to the death of hundreds! I say we deploy a couple of army battalions to hunt down and kill it before that happens!”

2. “Whoa, whoa, let’s not be so hasty now!” pleads scientific researcher Reynard Moulder, whose T-shirt declares that he wants to believe. “Look, I agree that this leather-skinned beast cannot be allowed to roam @@NATION@@, but instead of killing it, we should be looking to learn from its mysteries. I propose we use Kirlian cameras and dowsing to locate its mystic trail, then capture it for study.”

3. “No way man, that’d be a blasphemy against nature!” yells New Age mystic and religious leader Jefferson Aeroglider. “I glimpsed this glorious creature and saw it had antlered horns, like Cernunnos or Naigamesha! Trying to capture the divine would be an insult against Gaia! We should just block off the forest where it lives and create a sanctified nature reserve where profane humanity is forbidden, save for the occasional religious rite or fertility ritual.” He waggles his eyebrows suggestively.

4. “Kill it, experiment on it, worship it... Come on everyone, are we really this stupid?” asks unemployed TV personality Adam Fierce. “This so-called ‘new creature’ is obviously a hoax to troll people, or maybe some marketing gimmick to promote an upcoming movie. I mean, the quality of the videos is terrible! One so-called witness claimed that the beast couldn’t see him because he was dressed in orange. Does that sound like a real thing to you? What I propose we do is promote critical thinking, with a state-funded TV show centred around myth-busting. Why yes, I am available...”

#1433: Green Thumbs Sore [Cretox State; ed: Frieden-und Freudenland]

The Issue
Sensing a lucrative business opportunity, several major corporations attempted to capitalize on the nation’s eco-friendly attitude by marketing every single one of their products with dubious claims such as “environmentally safe,” “divinely blessed by Mother Nature herself,” and everything in between. With scores of activists grumbling about the “greenwashing,” the burden falls on you to broker a green peace.

The Debate
1. “I don’t see the problem here,” says United Information Technology CEO Bob Bourdain, teasing you with some 100% recyclable organic Urists. “It’s not as though we’re lying to people: all of our product packaging contains so many pro-environment exhortations that people reading the labels basically have no choice but to embrace the green craze! If that’s not ‘all profits go towards supporting the environment,’ I don’t know what is!”

2. “Not as though you’re lying?” shrieks random activist Gretel Harel, smacking what she assures you is not a 100% recyclable organic petition down on your desk. “This is making a mockery out of all our efforts! ‘Green this, green that’ - it has to end! If a company wants to put environmental claims in their advertising, they need to back them up with scientific facts.”

3. “Allow me to, ahem... advertise a solution,” cackles East Lebatuckese diplomat Louis O'Bannon, spreading some ‘Splendor in Socialism’ propaganda brochures on your desk. “As long as you have greedy profit-oriented capitalists, this hoodwinking is bound to happen. If you just brought all manufacturing and merchandising under state control like we do, all comrades - I mean consumers - could make well-informed decisions about what to buy.”

#1434: Blood on Your Nuts [Candlewhisper Archive; ed: Noahs Second Country]

The Issue
Cashew nuts are growing in popularity, and a good proportion of the domestic market is supplied by cheap imports from the Socialist Republic of Núi Và Sông. However, that nation is being criticised for its agricultural working standards, and as a major customer of its goods, @@NAME@@ is being seen as part of the problem.

The Debate
1. “Caustic shell chemicals are released by deshelling cashews, causing chronic acid burns to workers’ hands, all because Núi Và Sông growers are too stingy to provide protective gloves,” lectures May de Jong, wearing an ‘Ethical Importing Matters’ T-shirt that was probably manufactured in a Dàguó sweatshop. “Worse still, many of these workers are unpaid forced labour from so-called drug rehabilitation centres. Just so you can put your nuts in a bowl on the coffee table! We should demand that these plantations improve their working standards, and ban imports from them till they do so.”

2. “Look, if we stopped trading with every nation that has dodgy labour laws or workers with a skin rash or two, we wouldn’t be able to trade at all,” complains spice-lover Steve Larson, between mouthfuls of a delicious-smelling nut curry. “Maybe instead of restricting trade you could be supporting cashew growers in this country. We can maintain good agricultural workplace standards, and have government subsidisation allow our farmers to present competitive prices. You’d be nuts to say no to that.”

3. “I’m nuts for nuts too!” agrees your brother, grabbing a handful of cashew drupe seeds, peanut legume pods and almond kernels. “Except for hazelnuts and candlenuts, which shouldn’t count as nuts at all, in my opinion. I have to say though, this idea of using forced labour on plantations sounds like it’d be quite good for our economy. We should set something like that up.”

#1435: A Hot Potato [Frieden-und Freudenland; ed: Candlewhisper Archive]

The Issue
Thanks to generous agricultural subsidies, @@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@ farmers have produced a record number of potatoes this year, generating a significant surplus.

The Debate
1. “This is the seventh day in a row my old lady cooked potato soup for dinner and I can’t take it anymore!” clamours Sayid von Bismarck, a farmer, dejectedly leaning on a yardstick. “We have just tons and tons of potatoes and they will all rot if we cannot sell them. The government needs to buy them from us, otherwise a year’s hard work will go to waste. Give them to the hungry, find some other use for them... just take them, please!”

2. “We just need to motivate people to buy and eat more potatoes,” explains Sigourney Croft, your Minister of Creative Solutions, attempting to juggle three potatoes and staggering as one bounces off her forehead. “How about government-sponsored comics, cartoons and movies where the superheroes derive strength from eating potatoes! The Amazing Potato Woman! The Red Russet! Yukon Booster Gold! What do you think?”

3. “This clearly shows poor planning on the part of your farmers,” grunts the People’s Ambassador from the Socialist Union of East Lebatuck. “Of course you will have a surplus if everyone decides to plant potatoes! The key is to diversify! If your neighbor Farmer Joe is planting potatoes this year, maybe you should switch to celery instead. That’s why you need a centrally planned economy. No surplus, no shortages — just eternal bliss and abundance!”

4. “This potato mountain is tangible proof that commie economics are inefficient,” asserts right-wing economist Ashley Kim, presenting you with an invoice for the advice she is about to deliver. “Subsidies distort production, and block the invisible hand of self-correcting markets. Stop agricultural subsidies. You’ll end up with a leaner industry, and some temporary hardship, but in the long run you’ll be supporting the system that creates the wealth of nations.”
