TRR = several different ambassador who are active at different times. You will receive your update.

Why a countdown to the adoption of a new calendar?


It only makes sense, considering Western civilization makes countdowns to celebrate the end of a "cycle" every December 31st.

Update no. 14, November 2012

New Officer!

This is the reason why you are reading this update, our first in three months.
After some attempts to nag Sedge into writing yet another update, Frattastan announced his intention to do it himself and challenged for the fourth Officer seat, that had been occupied by Vacant since May 18. The decision was met with composed displays of approval, mostly.

Whether Frattastan will be able to meet the standards of enthusiasm and activity of his predecessor, or the infamous Curse of the Officers will make another victim, you will find out by the next update. Maybe.
After the end of the vote, the freshly-elected Officer has been assigned to the Foreign Affairs department, replacing Guy - who has quietly dropped out of NS involvement, a mere eleven months after announcing his retirement. Guess Vacant will have another chance, after all.

Delegate Challenge

Then-Citizen Apollo chose to be ambitious and challenged the sitting Delegate, Wham/Collector of Souls.
The election platform of the challenger was most convincing and firmly persuaded the Citizenry to ... suggest he run for another government position first. Having failed to gain the (constitutionally-required) support of at least two other citizens, no vote took place.
Apollo has since then vanished, failing to respond to any of the questions raised regarding his experience and commitment to the region and finally departing the RR, moving on to shadier endeavours. Namely, authoring Security Council proposals.

Amendment to the PSSP

Following a few controversial events there had been pressing demands to ensure a better enforcement of the Pan-Sinker Security Pact. Finally an amendment has been passed and now violators (individuals) of the Pact can lose citizenship in all the signatories of the treaty and regions that fail to comply with the treaty provisions can be expelled on unanimous decision of the other signatories.

WA voting policy

This paragraph was going to be filled with our voting record of recent World Assembly proposals but well, Christian Democrats found out that *no vote* has been cast (at the time of the writing) on the last four resolutions.
However, we took this opportunity to open a thread in the Assembly and re-discuss the regional WA voting policy.
Currently citizens and regional residents are consulted on each proposal and WA authors are welcome to lobby the Delegate to vote in a certain way, but in the end the decision remains discretionary (even if Delegates have generally committed themselves to follow the opinion prevalent among the citizenry).
So far proposed changes include: force the Delegate to vote according to the will expressed by the citizen in a forum vote, force the Delegate to vote according to the majority will of the WA residents of the region, keeping the status quo, various hybrid systems.
The debate can be seen here.

Everything else

  • The Great RR Ocean Race ended with Almonaster (from Canada) taking the first spot, closely followed by Tim. Fratt arrived last. Ha!
  • The Peanut Gallery, a subforum to debate real-world issues, has seen little use since being opened in August.
    Once again we blame our beloved admin team, who apparently scared everyone from posting by saying that the Gallery was "on trial" and would be kept only if people behaved.
  • It is widely agreed that forum member God-Emperor should get an avatar. Or stop posting here.

Update no. 15, September 2013

Lots and lots and lots has happened!

But only because it's ten months since the last official update. In the meantime, the TRR Media Corp has taken over providing news/rumours/slander from the region. Unless you've been living under a rock (or in Wysteria), you'll have noticed a lot has changed lately. Most importantly, the Whamocracy has fallen, and we are now living under an iron fisted Frattatorship. All the Officer roles are filled, and we have a new(ish) Speaker after citizens protested Christian Democrats making public a number of private discussions without notifying the Assembly first.

PSSP

The Rejected Realms remains in the Pan-Sinker Security Pact; however, it's getting a little lonely here. Balder and Osiris have withdrawn in the aftermath of Douria's coup, considering the treaty a worthless document and leaving just Lazarus and TRR remaining. In fact, TRR and Lazarus are already allies through another treaty - the doubling up proves just how much we like each other. Petitions to the admins to create a new batch of more reliable sinkers have so far fallen on deaf ears.

NS Cold War

The Gameplay forum is full of tedious, tiresome and tortuous arguments between the NPO and the UIAF as the developing Cold War has hotted up. Citizens of the Rejected Realms have discussed the conflict, considered both positions, and - after a period of deep reflection - given a resounding no to getting involved. Nonetheless, the conflict has impacted on TRR, with the collapse of the PSSP related to it, and a number of exposés relating to the security of the region. Notably, current citizen North East Somerset has been implicated in pushing the Pacific to remove the supposed "FRA dominated" regime from the region. In response, citizens are considering booting him to the Really Rejected Realms.

Rejected Realms Army

The Rejected Realms Army has flourished of late under the command of Frattastan and Wopruthien, and nations flying the RRA flag have been involved in defences of a number of regions, including Capitalist Federation, Tibet, The New British Empire, The Great Green Federation, and The Republic of NationStates, as well as assisting in TSP's delegate transfer (and no, not in that way). The RRA Intel department remains fully active, and agent Onderkelkia continues to work his way up the ranks in The New Inquisition.

Fratt-naming

TRR is holding a competition to find the best nickname for delegate Frattastan. So far, we have:

  • Frattle
  • Frattiekins
  • Fattiestan
  • Fartastan
  • Fratt boy
  • Frattface

Feel free to post further submissions in this thread.
The best one will get mentioned in the next update.

Everything else

  • Frattastan was appointed a Global Mod. So far he has failed to abuse his powers, leaving his peons worrying about just what he's got planned.
  • Culture Officer Wopruthien has been running avatar/flag contests for a while now, with any resident being able to take part.
    The winner of each week gets to choose the theme of the next one, with past themes including Disney villains, legends of modern music and historical characters.
  • TRR's number one fanboy, Belschaft, has returned to apply for citizenship. We attempted to find out why, but he disappeared midway through answering.

Aha, that has clearly been doctored! Your foolish attempts to muddle us up are foiled by your negligence to alter the smaller text where the nation of Whiskum is noted to be a "Democratic Republic". Therefore all screenshots ever posted are void!

I somehow doubt that, aren't you retired yet? I'm sure Balder could find a more competent delegate., but fuck it. I guess activity is measured by "party RPs" and minimal government activity even when you compare apples to oranges. If you had an inkling of how either region operates you'd might learn a thing or two. That could be asking for too much though. Keep your imported "citizens" and worthless posts which serve as a giant wank circle.
