Were there separate players of note before that tried to represent separate incarnations of the same nation (i.e. non-puppets, like Player A controls MT Testlandia and Player B controls an FT version)? How did that go?

The roleplayers might be better suited to answer that question, rather than the gameplayers.

Our nation name is our identity over here, so two players representing the same nation in different incarnations is tricky.

Could someone give me a little bit of history behind all of the GCRs (when they were created, coups, delegates, etc.)?

Not sure if there's an NS History thread for RPers.

Not to my knowledge, though TEP was a UCR for a period prior to being made a Feeder.

Not as such no, the chat/idea threads for each of the rp boards may be a good place to ask however.

I was a member of a group which just defeated them in Iran. I suspect they wouldn't enjoy raiding as much if they won everytime no problem.

TBH is not the North Pacific Army, who were the ones recently occupying Iran (with support from others).

You'd likely be wrong on how much enjoyment we'd get from winning every time however ;)

Not sure this is an actual history question, but are there 11 prior constitutions that Lazarus has had since it was founded? Given that Mandate 12 is named as it is, I'm wondering if it's the 12th constitution of Lazarus of if it was just a name thing to make it sound cool.

Is there a coup mandated into this version? :p

Osiris was a UCR at one point, but I don't believe it existed in the game in any form at the time right before being made a sinker.

Go here and search the sinkers, looking for founders. So only Osiris was a UCR.

I'm not sure whether this was the original thread, but this link is relevant and potentially helpful.

Yes, Mandate 12 is the 12th Constitution that Laz has had. For example, Mandate 6 was the constitution for Emerald Laz, while Mandate 8 was the constitution for the PRL, and it was the Mandate that Stujenske violated as Delegate of Lazarus when he did the NLO Coup with Milo, Feux, AMOM, and Sweet Leaf.

I love how, in typical Osiris fashion, that required the clarification that no reasonable alternate claims remained extant.

Is there a list with the different Mandates' ? That could make for a useful and interesting index.

Does the Undead Dominion count there as a Mandate?

Mandate 8 - People's Republic
Mandate 9 - Republic of Lazarus
Mandate 10 - Celestial Union
Mandate 11 - Undead Dominion ?
Mandate 12 - LazCorp

Mandate 3 was Yaman Council, think 4 and 5 were Emerald Council which was when I joined. Going by the wiki, Mandate 1 was Lies Incorporated with the original and Mandate 2 was Undead.

There was never any Mandate (or any other type of constitution) under the Khanate anyway, so one couldn't have been counted.

Is there a way to see which nations that have lived in a region the longest? I though the Texas Dossier showed this, but I seem to be mistaken.

Find the regional rankings, sort by residency. It has minor issues in that there's a decent number of people all sharing the same score because of how the initial number was calculated, but it's otherwise your best bet (also does not account for any brief period out-of-region, longest continuous only).
