Ratification of The Republica Accord with Europeia
Ministry of Foreign Affairs


The Union of Democratic States has long held the principles of democracy and of amicability among like-minded regions in high regard. One region with which we share these values is the Republic of Europeia. Our regions have had a long and prosperous relationship of diplomatic recognition and cultural exchange culminating in the Union’s participation in the Europeian region of the week program, and we wish to solidify and extend this relationship further. To this end, we have ratified the Republica Accord. The Accord received unanimous approval by the Senate of the Union, a significant majority in the General Assembly, and subsequently the signature of the President on the 21st of July.

Through this Accord the parties have reaffirmed their commitment to the principles of democracy and civil rights in their regions, along with reiterating ethical recruitment practices between partners, espoused in the Europeian led Arnhelm Declaration of Recruitment Standards that the Union has long respected. In addition we have made a firm pact of non-aggression and non-espionage between ourselves and a pathway for intelligence sharing when appropriate, without establishing the recognition or endorsement of the military activities of the other. Through cultural programs, goodwill and deeper ties will be fostered. The Union is confident that this Accord is but a stepping stone in the development of the relationship between two firmly democratic regions.

Signed,

July Embassy Update
Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Republica Accord, Negotiated, Signed & Ratified
by Druing

Europeia and the Union of Democratic States are regions with a shared commitment to democracy, civil rights and ethical recruiting. As such the Republica Accord was negotiated to strengthen the relationship between the regions. The full statement on the ratification of the Accord can be found here.

Unionist Engagement Reinvigorated In Senate By-Election
by Dome Artan

In our last embassy update, the disappearance of Senator Grand Gondor was reported on. At the time they had one day left in the ten day unannounced activity buffer before an election would be held for their seat. As Grand Gondor did not return, and indeed has since CTEd, the Chancellors opened a Senate By-Election on the second of June. Midway through the candidacy period for the one open seat, a second seat became available following the resignation and subsequent renunciation of citizenship by long time Unionist North Plegia.

Ten citizens declared their candidacy for the two vacant seats with six posting campaign statements. Following a Senate election that had only six candidates for the five seats and minimal campaigning, this was a very welcome sight for the Union’s political landscape. Voting was opened on the sixth of July and beyond Nuevo San Miguel, who had separated themself from the pack by virtue of endorsements from President Phoenix Coalition and former Vice President Asdersland, it was anyone’s race.

The perceived tightness of the race was not borne out in reality when the Chancellors released the results on the eighth of July. Nuevo San Miguel had dominated as expected, with an average ranking of 2.26. Long time citizen Drawception ended up with the second seat with an average ranking of 3.74, well ahead of third place finisher British Isles and Commonwealth Realms with 5.44. The election was also notable for RON’s strong performance, finishing well above half the candidacy pool.

Presidential Election Sees Phoenix Re-Elected For Second Term, With Dome Artan The New VP
by Dome Artan

The Union’s second Presidential term wound to a close at the end of June with the Chancellors declaring the candidacy period open for the third Presidential election on the twenty fifth of June. The election was expected to be a laid back one with Phoenix Coalition seeking reelection following a widely admired four month term. The incumbent did announce a new pick for Vice President following the mutually agreed departure of Asdersland from the position, current WA Delegate Dome Artan would take their place on the ballot. While much of the lead up to the election was filled with jokes about Phoenix Coalition running unopposed, former Chairperson of the Union’s General Assembly Firseria announced their candidacy with Nuevo San Miguel their choice for VP.

Firseria openly admitted they weren’t “in it to win it”, instead there to offer some competition to Phoenix Coalition and get some experience for a potential more serious run at some point in the future. Both candidates did publish extensive campaign statements, but there was minimal other campaigning beyond some citizens asking questions. The campaign period was mostly notable for the Chancellery’s allowance of RMB campaign posts, something long outlawed by the region’s various election officers. The voting period was opened on the 29th of June with thirty six votes being cast, up twelve from the last Presidential election. Phoenix Coalition won reelection handily, taking twenty five of those thirty six votes with Firseria grabbing the remaining eleven.

To Endorse or Not To Endorse

Postby UDS Dispatch Office » Wed Aug 12, 2020 10:49 am

Eagles Freeing Middle Earth from the Orcish clutches

In the faintest of the night, our Eagles snuck away,
Escaping the grasp of Hamlet, if only for the day.
To Middle Earth they flew
To fight with the Wardens, TSP, TEP, TNP, TRR & TITO too
In the flight, Kang and Com, ran down what the Eagles would do
When Isles began to speak, and every word in which was true.

“To endorse or not to endorse, that is the question.
Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer
the ejects and bans of outrageous regions
or to take arms against a sea of invaders
and by opposing end them. To be ejected, to be banned,
no more. And by a ban I say to end
the heartache and the thousand natural switchers
that NationStates is air to. ‘Tis an operation,
devoutly to be carried, to endorse, to chase,
to detag, perchance to win; aye there’s the win.
For in that win in update what happiness will come!!!!
When we have carried off this operation
Must give us pause. There’s the respect
That makes defending of so many distressed regions:
For who would bear the leader of the region
The oppressor’s wrong, the arrogant man’s contumely
The pangs of bans and ejections, the update’s delay,
The insolence of the WA, and the spurns
That puppet merits of the worthy detags
When Thatcher himself might his quick detag make
With many switchers? Who would Kanglia bear
To curse and swear in an officer’s life
But that the dread of DPS points,
The Rejected Realms from whose chambers
No puppet returns, puzzles no one
And makes us rather bear those bans we have,
Than switch to others that we make on the spot
Thus puppets does make soldiers of us all,
And thus the white phoenix of UDS flags
Is pasted over, with backgrounds provided
And the enterprising Dome and Glac, of great respect and honour.
With this regard their prestige turns upwardly
And lose the name of defeat. Victory you now,
the great UDS? Enemy, in thy Orisons
Be all our victories remembered.”

The Eagles erupted with cheers, prepared for the fight.
When the dust had settled it was very clear
The liberation was successful this night.

August Embassy Update
Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Senate Election Creates Major Shifts In Senate Composition


On the 26th of July, candidacy for the election was made open to the Union and when it closed later on the 28th, the result was a large number of candidates, 11 in total; one of whom later dropped out just before the voting period to make a total of 10 candidates, which caused a minor technical issue with the ballot, that was swiftly resolved during the voting process.

The vote was held on the 1st of August and the aforementioned issue meant that the period had to be extended to a later time on the 3rd than usual. Afterwards, the 27 valid ballots were processed and elected five candidates to the Senate. These Senators are -

Prorescia
Guess and Check
Drawception
Dawnsland
Zeneste

Out of these five Senators, two were re-elected, those being Prorescia and Drawception, with the other three are new, replacing Glaciosia, The Noble Thatcherites (both of whom legally could not run) and Nuevo San Miguel.

This particular Senate election has some interesting factors to it - Namely that this is the first Senate election that legally barred candidates who had reached a term limit, as well as the returning Senator from the July By-Election. The Senators have been eager to get to work and since their inauguration, have discussed and voted on numerous articles of legislation.

Union Preparing For N-Day


For this year’s N-Day, the Union has joined the Potato Alliance. After several events and fluctuations earlier in the year regarding the influx of overall nations in the world, N-Day may play out uniquely compared to previous times, with new nations potentially impacting it.

UDSAF Update


This month, the UDS Armed Forces were engaged in 2 huge liberation attempts on South Pacific and Middle Earth. For the first time in history, commanders Comlogical, Kanglia and Phoenix decided to recruit members directly from the WA members pool, and the reserve rank was created for this very purpose. The numbers were at its heights since the establishment of UDSAF - 9 members jumped successfully in a siege of South Pacific.

A ribbon system was established to enable UDSAF personnel to flex their military achievements and their honor of fighting on behalf of the Union and the cause of the defenders.
