Aside from you being under the mistaken impression that's your only problematic embassy, there's a wide gap between being relevant enough to justify offensive Liberation, and complete irrelevance.

Which other embassies would you, personally, classify as problematic?

I don't understand your point. They're not relevant enough to be liberated, but we are relevant and hence qualify for a liberation because we have an embassy with them? As far as I know, no other region has ever been liberated just for holding embassies.

Are you quibbling yet again about whether some regions that you have embassies with are nazi regions? :roll:

That's a straw man, not what I was saying at all. I don't know what your politics are outside of NS and I'm not going to get into that. It is utterly irrelevant. I was talking about the things your region's representatives have done in NS. Instead of decrying and blackballing fascists as any respectable organization would do, CCD has defended them and gotten closer to them. Couple that with the annoying tag:all TGs and blatant, relentless self-promotion and you've broken just about every unwritten rule in the book. That's why your region is in the mess it's in and that's why it is utterly incapable of succeeding with these blatant attempts to self-promote.

Yes, I get the impression people don't like our region very much. Just in general, you know.

I still don't understand your point. We have no problems with fascist regions in game - why would we have a problem with them? Why should we be expected to denounce regions roleplaying fascists?

I strongly disagree, we're the 5th largest (non-puppet/card farming) user created region in the game, with a population of over 600 nations. Clearly something is working.

Because A) nearly everybody else does and B) you seem very certain that there aren't any fascists in NS. You might try paying a visit to Nazi Europa to ask them if they're just RPing at some point, I'm sure that it will prove enlightening.

Region size doesn't mean much of anything with regards to diplomacy. Convincing a noob to join your region is a very different thing from convincing an experienced player to help you out, and your constant stream of mass TGs (which I have long since blocked on this account, but I'm familiar with through puppets and other players) tells me that you really need to learn the difference.

Recently? They are a dead basically.

But since you can't be bothered with reading their WFE...

Nazi Europa is dedicated to political education on matters such as National Socialism and the varying degrees of Fascism


They also were involved in invasions in the past. But luckly due to internal meltdown, they aren't anymore.

I'm sure there are real fascists in NationStates, and it's likely that some of our embassy regions do contain some real fascist nations. In fact, given our population size, it's likely that we also have some real-life fascist nations, as does Europe, or the Communist Bloc, or any of the Pacifics.

I've said this many times before, but NationStates is a game. We have embassies with regions for their relations in-game, not outside of it. Frankly, if a region isn't acting on it outside NationStates, why does it matter? We aren't the thought police.

Again, as far as I know, none of the regions we have embassies with engage in fascist activities offsite.

The Confederation's average population, which is the best measure of a nation's age, is over 2 billion. This works out to be about a year old.

This is pretty close to other large, user-created regions (again, like Europe or The Communist Bloc), and is well above the average age of feeder regions.
