Statement of Recognition of the Osiris Fraternal Order

Statement of Recognition of the Osiris Fraternal Order


Over the past few months, the Government of the North Pacific (“the Government”) has been closely following the developments in Osiris. The Government now wishes to acknowledge that the Osiris Fraternal Order (“the Order”) has served as an effective stabilising force in a region that has long been plagued with internal turmoil and factionalism.

This has become evident by a number of events. The Order have been successful in its stated primary objective of removing internal elements that had been disruptive towards constructive governance from the region. The Order proceeded to fulfil commitments it had undertaken, by: 1) providing the region with a constitutional document embracing the principles of justice and democracy; 2) holding fair elections under this new document; and finally 3) overseeing the peaceful transition of power from Venico to the winner of the elections, Lord Ravenclaw.

Perhaps more importantly, the Order has successfully fostered a regional climate of cooperation and transparency, in stark contrast with the previously prevalent secretive and often subversive politics. Under the Order, Osiris has become a prosperous and secure community, full of opportunities for its members.

These developments have alleviated the original concerns the Government held regarding the stability of the Order and the possibility of a full-blown civil war, as well as possible threats to Osiran sovereignty arising from the security arrangement with the Brotherhood of Malice. Consequently, the Government, long committed to supporting stability and independent native rule in Game-Created Regions, has now decided to embrace this Osiran endeavor.

To this effect, we have already ordered the North Pacific Army to deploy in Osiris in order to support Lord Ravenclaw in the Delegacy transition. We now announce that we recognize the Osiran Fraternal Order, currently led by the recently elected Delegate Lord Ravenclaw, as the only legitimate government of Osiris. Furthermore, the Government will proceed to reopen formal diplomatic relations with Osiris, by acknowledging, granting, and reciprocating the recent request by the Osiris Fraternal Order diplomatic envoy for an embassy exchange. The Osiris embassy on our regional forum will be converted to reflect the change in government from the Kemetic Republic of Osiris to the Osiris Fraternal Order, and a request for an embassy for the North Pacific on the Osiris Fraternal Order forums will be placed.

We wish the people of Osiris and their government the best of luck in continuing advancing their region.

Sincerely,

Osiris appears to have finally turned a corner, ironically and confusingly enough due to a group with the word Malice in their name.

The North Pacific recognizes the Osiris Fraternal Order

Image
The Delegate deliberates with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs staff on the the recognition statement.

On January 29th, 2014, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs released a statement announcing that the Government of The North Pacific formally recognizes the Osiris Fraternal Order ("OFO") as the legitimate government of the region of Osiris. In addition, the Government accepted and reciprocated an earlier request by the OFO for an embassy exchange, thereby establishing formal diplomatic relations between the two governments for the first time.

In the statement, the Government expressed its satisfaction with the progress the OFO had made in fulfilling their commitments towards establishing a democratic and constitutional government, and transitioning control of the regional delegacy to a democratically elected delegate. Furthermore, the Government recognized the positive effects the efforts of the OFO in the two months since its creation had on the region and its community, and in particular the fostering of a prosperous community in Osiris.

The Government of The North Pacific enjoyed a cordial and productive relationship with the Kemetic Republic of Osiris, the region’s government until September 2013, culminating in the ratification of a bilateral alliance in summer 2012. The alliance was rendered void by the dissolution of the Kemetic Republic, since which and until the release of the above statement the two regions had no diplomatic relations. It is the hope of the Government of The North Pacific that, with the robust leadership of Osiris provided by the OFO, the two regions will rekindle the amicable relations of the past.

Delegate announces new World Assembly voting policy

Image
The Delegate smirks at vote stackers while announcing the new policy.

Delegate mcmasterdonia announced on February 17th, 2014 a change in the way he determines how to vote on World Assembly resolutions. Under the new policy, the Delegate’s vote is determined by the outcome of a poll on the regional forum, where only Regional Assembly members with WA nations in the region or deployed with the North Pacific Army are eligible to cast votes. In contrast, the previous voting policy permitted all Regional Assembly members to vote on the offsite poll.

Explaining the reasons for the change, the Delegate stated his intention to reward those members that choose to enlist their WA nation in the services of The North Pacific, either by stationing it in the region to contribute to its security, or by joining the North Pacific Army. Furthermore, the Delegate mentioned that he believes that the change will encourage more members to make the same choice, as well as boost participation in the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs.

The Delegate of The North Pacific is by law given complete discretion in determining the regional vote and voting policy. Traditionally, this involves the use of an offsite poll, though the voting eligibility criteria have varied over the years. The previous policy had been in place since mcmasterdonia’s first term as Delegate, in November 2012. The current policy had also been employed by Delegate Eluvatar in September 2012, as well as for several years up until summer 2012.

The full text of the announcement by the Delegate can be found here.

The North Pacific-Lazarus cultural exchange

Contestants from the PRL (left) and TNP (right) racing to the end of a spam competition. Crude editing by The North Pacific Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Graphic Design Division.

February 2014 featured a cultural exchange event between The North Pacific and the People’s Republic of Lazarus. The event was hosted in the latter’s forums and included OOC discussion and spam games between members of the two regions.

Of particular interest were the so-called "Trophy Events", a set of contests between the two regions ranging from poetry and trivia to spam games. The stakes were high as the winner region would get to determine the opposing region’s delegate’s pre-title and flag. In the end Lazarus came ahead, but Chairman Milograd graciously awarded the trophy to The North Pacific. So, be on the lookout for changes to his nation besides the loss of the WA Delegate badge.

The Government of The North Pacific thanks the People’s Republic of Lazarus for their hospitality, and for the effort and time they put into organizing this event.

The view from the Speaker's Office

Image
"I will not sit quietly and let Crushing Our Enemies shred the Constitution." ~Grosseschnauzer, [s]filibustering[/s] commenting during a Regional Assembly session.

The Regional Assembly has had a busy month, with discussions on electoral procedure, court legislation, and membership matters.

On the first front, flemingovia proposed a bill that adds the option to reopen nominations to all electoral ballots. The bill was received positively and quickly ratified by the Assembly. A further amendment, introduced by Crushing Our Enemies, is currently under discussion, to address implementation issues overlooked in the original bill. Moreover, an omnibus bill closing several loopholes in electoral law has been proposed by r3naissanc3r, and is currently at vote.

On court legislation, Justice Romanoffia has proposed the addition of a civil code to the regional statute, in response to extensive discussion in the prior months regarding the civil jurisdiction of the regional court. The bill is currently at vote. r3naissanc3r introduced a bill addressing prosecutorial matters, and in particular allowing private citizens to prosecute complaints the Attorney General has declined to proceed on. The bill is currently under debate.

Finally, the Assembly has been discussing the Vice Delegate’s power to block applicants from admission to the Assembly. Cormac submitted a bill to expand its scope, permitting rejection of applicants for reasons besides the regional security grounds that current legislation prescribes. A number of Assembly members have supported requiring an Assembly vote before the Vice Delegate can lift an already existing block on an application. This discussion arose in response to earlier decisions by Vice Delegate Democratic Donkeys to block a membership application by Empires of Narnia, and lift a previous block to Treize_Dreizehn’s application.

The Regional Assembly is The North Pacific’s legislative body, and membership is open to everyone with a nation in the region. You can apply to join here.

The North Pacific in the World Assembly

Image
Minister of World Assembly Affairs Abacathea (shown to the right) discusses with an aide during a Security Council session.


The North Pacific continues to have an active and prominent involvement in the NationStates World Assembly. Delegate mcmasterdonia currently commands the strongest vote in World Assembly resolutions, and in coordination with Minister for World Assembly Affairs, Abacathea work closely with the members of the region to ensure this voting power is utilized to its full extent and in the best interests of the region. We sat down with Abacathea, who had just stumbled out of the infamous World Assembly strangers’ bar, and asked him about his thoughts on the month the just finished.

"In truth it's been a whirlwind of a month. We've had two resolutions discarded SC side, one of which was a *hic* genuine mistake and could have happened to any of us. And then there's Auralia's fall from grace, which in truth is quite saddening. Say what you want about the guy, he was an active contributor, not only WA side but regionally as well. He'd frequent TNP and further debates, and this was always welcomed as it encouraged activity."

Abacathea was recently commended by the World Assembly. Here is what he had to say on the subject.

"Ah, you're talking about the Commend? Say why is there two of you? Where'd the other one go? Ah yes, well in truth I feel that it is something that really strengthens TNP more than myself. Regions such as International Western Union, which fostered me and raised me, TNP which encouraged me, and Osiris which outright refined me all deserve the kudos for this more than I, but it does lend itself to improving the work I can do as a Minister. TNP is such a massive battlefield to try and work around but it's been a pleasure, and we're seeing consistent and steady increases in the active WA member base as of late. So we're evidently getting there progressively."

And what about the change in the voting policy?

"I swear I thought she was 18... ahem... I mean, yeah, well that definitely helped things. Requiring members who want to have their vote heard to be TNP WA active, along with McM's massive voting power, has really helped spur the activity levels for the Ministry. We envision by the summer to be really hammering at full strength here. So watch this space!"

And there you have it folks! The Ministry of World Assembly Affairs is a regular contributor to resolution discussions in the World Assembly forums. The Ministry strives to keep all WA nations in the region informed on every resolution at vote, and fosters authoring endeavors among regional members. If you are interested in becoming a member and getting involved, apply here.

TNP makes it government policy to only elect/appoint women to offices. Great Bights Mum and Erastide were both pioneers of this policy.

The North Pacific ratifies alliance with Albion

Image
King Charles Cerebella (left), Delegate mcmasterdonia (middle), and Minister of Foreign Affairs r3naissanc3r take a break from negotiating the terms of the treaty. A paparazzi from The Rejected Times can be seen in the background.

On April 14th, 2014, the Regional Assembly of The North Pacific ratified The North Pacific and Albion Security Treaty. The treaty establishes a close alliance between the two regions, including provisions for non-aggression and mutual defense, as well as military, diplomatic, and intelligence cooperation.

The treaty is the product of negotiations between Delegate mcmasterdonia and Minister of Foreign Affairs r3naissanc3r for The North Pacific, and King Charles Cerebella for Albion. Presenting the treaty to the Regional Assembly, the Minister described Albion as a strategic partner, emphasized its military prowess and the associated security benefits for The North Pacific, and demonstrated the two regions’ diplomatic compatibility by enumerating their many shared principles and objectives.

The new treaty capitalizes on the pre-existing strong links between The North Pacific and Albion. Prior to becoming allies, the two regions had collaborated militarily on a number of occasions, most prominently during the campaigns against Milograd’s coup in The South Pacific in April 2013, and The Dourian Embassy’s coup in Osiris in July 2013. The governments of the two regions enjoyed excellent relations and frequently interacted diplomatically. It is the expectation of the Government of The North Pacific that the formal alliance will reinforce this productive collaboration.

The full text of the treaty is available here.

The North Pacific Army flexes its muscles

Image
Brigadier-General Gladio (shown) briefs General Blue Wolf II (not shown) on the [s]precious bodily fluids[/s] progress of the training exercises.

The North Pacific Army ("NPA") has been a focus area for the Government of The North Pacific during this ongoing term. In an effort spearheaded by Minister of Defence Blue Wolf II and Acting Minister of Defence Gladio, the NPA has seen frequent deployments and intensive training, at the same time always closely adhering to the directives set out by The North Pacific Army Doctrine.

In late January, the NPA assisted the Osiris Delegacy transition to Lord Ravenclaw, in a sign of goodwill from the Government of The North Pacific that was shortly followed by a statement of recognition of the Osiris Fraternal Order. In late February, the NPA participated in the occupation of St Abbaddon lead by The Brotherhood of Malice, reciprocating the Brotherhood’s help in eliminating an internal threat to The North Pacific’s delegacy. In early March, the NPA received a request for support from General Hammond, Delegate of Stargate, a region allied to The North Pacific. The NPA immediately deployed, effectively securing Stargate against any external threats, and demonstrating yet again The North Pacific’s commitment to the defense of their allies.

Acting Minister Gladio has also implemented a rigorous program of military exercises, intended to enhance operational capability and maintain combat readiness during periods when the NPA is not engaged in formal military operations. During this term, the NPA has conducted on its own successful training exercises in East Pacific, Transilvania, and Atlantic, and more are planned for the remaining of the term. The NPA also executed in coordination with the United Imperialist Armed Forces ("UIAF") a large-scale joint military exercise in Scotland. The exercise preceded by a few days the ratification of The North Pacific and Albion Security Treaty, Albion being one of the constituent militaries of the UIAF. Together these two actions signal a future of closer cooperation between the two militaries.

The Government’s focus on the NPA has been a particularly gainful endeavor. The NPA now maintains capability of rapid response, consistent deployment of a minimum of ten units, and effectiveness in varying operating environments. The increased power and versatility of the NPA reinforce its role in serving the region and the objectives laid down by The North Pacific Army Doctrine.

Membership to the North Pacific Army is open to everyone with a nation in the region and a mobile World Assembly nation. You can apply to join here.

March Judicial Elections

Newly-elected Associate Justice SillyString, after reading a multi-page brief submitted by newly-appointed Assistant Attorney General Gracius Maximus.

March saw the first regular election cycle of the year in The North Pacific. Elections were held for the Justices of the regional Court and the Attorney General.

The Justice election was highly contested, with six candidates competing for three positions. The results saw incumbent Romanoffia retain his seat, and Ator People and SillyString join the bench for the first time. Subsequent deliberations among the Justices resulted in Romanoffia being declared Chief Justice.

In the Attorney General election, Chasmanthe won by a comfortable margin. After he took office, he proceeded to appoint Gracius Maximus and Treize_Dreizehn as his Assistants. The new Court and prosecutorial team have already had a busy first month in office, addressing several review and criminal cases that had been in the docket from prior to the election.

The North Pacific boasts one of the most developed Judiciaries in NationStates, with a jurisprudential tradition going back almost a decade. If you are interested in getting involved, apply to become a member here.

The view from the Speaker's Office

Image
"Motions to vote do not work that way!" ~Speaker Zyvetskistaahn informs the members on proper Regional Assembly procedure.

The Regional Assembly continues to perfect The North Pacific’s statute book, addressing during the last month issues relating to electoral regulations, court jurisdiction, and regional culture.

Regarding elections, Vice Delegate Democratic Donkeys proposed a constitutional amendment to remove term limits for the office of Delegate, where currently no person may serve for more than two consecutive terms. This would enable current Delegate mcmasterdonia to run again in the next general election. The proposal divided the Assembly during debate, and is currently at vote.

In terms of court legislation, Minister of Foreign Affairs r3naissanc3r introduced a bill removing the civil jurisdiction of The North Pacific’s Court. The bill followed a previous proposal by Justice Romanoffia for the addition of a civil code to the regional statute, which the Assembly rejected. The new bill successfully passed the Assembly and became law.

Finally, Minister of Culture Lord Ravenclaw, representing the Cabinet, submitted a bill establishing April 26th as an official regional holiday, commemorating the adoption of the Flag of The North Pacific. This comes just as the region is about to celebrate the tenth anniversary of this important event, which is considered synonymous with the establishment of constitutional government in The North Pacific. The bill was received positively and quickly ratified by the Assembly.

The Regional Assembly is The North Pacific’s legislative body, and one of the most active in NationStates. Everyone with a nation in the region can join it by applying here.

The North Pacific in the World Assembly

Image
An artist’s impression of Delegate mcmasterdonia voting on a WA resolution.

Delegate mcmasterdonia remains the most endorsed delegate in NationStates by a wide margin, with an endorsement count close to and at times exceeding the five hundreds. This places The North Pacific in a position of unsurpassed power in the World Assembly. Minister of World Assembly Affairs Abacathea works diligently to ensure this voting power is utilized to its full extent and in the best interests of the region.

In the Security Council, March saw a proposal by Ramaeus to Commend Blackbird, prominent member of the Alliance Defense Network, the Red Liberty Alliance, and the Meritocracy. More relevant in determining The North Pacific’s vote was the nominee’s involvement in three forum destruction operations conducted by the Red Liberty Alliance Intelligence operatives in 2005. The North Pacific, a signatory of the Convention on Off-site Property Security, unreservedly condemns all acts of forum terrorism, and accordingly helped defeat the commendation proposal by voting against it.

In the General Assembly, during the last two months there have been two prominent attempts to repeal "Rights and Duties of WA States". Minister Abacathea on both occasions published a comprehensive argument against the repeal, imploring the region to vote to defeat it. In the first case this proved unnecessary, as the proposal was eventually ruled illegal. In the second case, Minister Abacathea, along with Delegate of Monkey Island and Deputy to the Delegate of Europeia Mousebumples, also organised a wide campaign against the proposal. With an early vote against by Delegate mcmasterdonia, the proposal was soundly defeated.

The North Pacific vote is determined by an offsite poll, open to all Regional Assembly members with a World Assembly nation in the region. To be able to influence the strongest vote in the World Assembly, apply to join here.

TNP Elects new Delegate


Greetings All!

The North Pacific has recently held elections and I am pleased to announce that HMS Unicorn has been elected as our new Delegate after a strong showing at the ballot box. You can view a detailed break down of the election results here.

It has been my pleasure to serve as Delegate of the North Pacific for the past eight months and I have had the honour of becoming the longest serving Delegate of the region. I have had the pleasure to be elected to the office of Delegate on four occasions, however this is the first time that I have been able to complete both terms. The region has made tremendous progress and I am proud to say that my administration has left the region and it's government stronger, more active and efficient than what it was when I took office. I am disappointed to be leaving office and I believe that most GCR Delegates will agree when I say that there is always more that needs to be done and it is difficult to meet every single goal that you set for yourself at the beginning of the term.

I am fortunate to have had a successful and reliable cabinet, as well as many other supporters in the region who have provided sound advice and constructive criticism when necessary. My Vice Delegate was a tower of strength and a constant source of support and reliability when needed.

HMS Unicorn was elected on a detailed campaign that focused significantly on her goals for each of the executive Ministries that she will be establishing under her government. I look forward to supporting the new Delegate and I will do all that I can to assist her and make this transition as quick and painless as possible. You can read my final remarks and advice for the new Delegate here. HMS Unicorn offers a balanced platform, where if delivered according to plan, will further enhance the activity and efficiency of the executive government which in turn will promote the prosperity and engagement of the government with the region it is sworn to lead and protect.

Thank you and good night!

TNP Elects new Delegate, part 2


Greetings all!

Many thanks to outgoing Delegate mcmasterdonia for the introduction. I am HMS Unicorn, probably better known as r3naissanc3r, and I am delighted and humbled to be posting here as Delegate of The North Pacific. It is a rare privilege to lead the largest region in the NationStates world, and I would like to thank the members of The North Pacific for providing me with this opportunity.

I have tonight announced the Cabinet for the new term. It is as follows:

Minister of Home Affairs - Democratic Donkeys
Minister of Foreign Affairs - mcmasterdonia
Minister of World Assembly Affairs - Abacathea
Minister of Communications - Crushing Our Enemies
Minister of Defense - Gladio
Minister of Culture - Lords Nwahs

This team represents some of the best talent in the NationStates world, and is indicative of one of the biggest strengths of The North Pacific: an open, vibrant, and stable community, with diverse skill sets and enthusiasm aplenty.

Together with my Ministers, and with the contributions of all members of The North Pacific, we will be working to implement the agenda I presented during the elections. I, and apparently The North Pacific voters, consider it an ambitious and robust plan for the region, which when delivered will advance our general welfare. I am confident that, in the end of the term, we will be reaping progress and prosperity, continuing the record set by my predecessor mcmasterdonia in the past two terms.

On a more interregional setting, I am looking forward to working with The North Pacific’s allies and friends for the joint benefit of our regions. You are welcome to contact me directly for anything relating to The North Pacific government and our diplomatic relations. I can be reached on NationStates through telegram to my nation HMS Unicorn, or on IRC at our regional channel ( #tnp @ esper, available here).

Thank you and good night!

Statement on the Capture of Nazi Europe


During the last major update, a military coalition lead by the North Pacific Army (NPA) successfully seized control of the region Nazi Europe, in an operation jointly coordinated by General Blue Wolf II of the NPA and Commander Christopher Bishop of the United Imperial Armed Forces. Participating in the coalition were the Imperial Sovereign Realms Army, the Europeian Republican Navy, Lone Wolves United, and the Royal Kantrian Army.

Following the repeal of the Liberate Nazi Europe resolution in February 2014, the delegate of Nazi Europe was able to impose a password on the region in order to protect it from external aggression. Blue Wolf II, however, successfully recovered the password. Within a few hours, the coalition of forces was assembled, the plan of attack was drawn out, and the mission was carried out. The operation was a powerful demonstration of interregional cooperation against the spread of the hateful ideology of Nazism in NationStates.

Over the past few years, we in The North Pacific have repeatedly reaffirmed our own strong commitment to the cause against Nazism. We have done so in multiple capacities. We have been among the major contributors to interregional conferences focusing on how to best combat its spread, such as in Empires of Earth and the pan-GCR conference hosted by the New Pacific Order. We have had a consistent voting record in the World Assembly opposing this ideology, including voting in support of LIberate Nazi Europe and against the several attempts to repeal it. Last but not least, we have lead or participated in multiple military operations against regions espousing this reprehensible ideology, including prior attempts against Nazi Europe.

Consistent with our prior record, we are now elated to have lead the military effort to capture Nazi Europe, and we remain ever committed to the cause against Nazism in NationStates.

Sincerely,

~r3naissanc3r
Delegate of The North Pacific

They had a few updaters helping with the operation and they also have a decent number of flags deployed in Hogwarts.

Also it was a pleasure working with TNP on this operation :)
