[PASSED] Condemn North East Somerset

Postby Xoriet » Wed Jul 31, 2019 5:20 am

First thing to note is that this continues my line of people who earned badges a long time ago and haven't been recognized for them yet really. I ran out of room pretty quickly and am hoping this one can get past the word limit, which always caps me at 2,000 characters rather than 4,000. Maybe third time's a charm for that.

One of the clauses involves something purely R/D technical, which is the discovery of what is involved with the influence formula in regards to passwording regions. That one is a bit iffy and I'm not sure I managed to phrase it in a way that could include it but still pass muster in the SC.

Any corrections, comments, or advice on the quality and structure of the proposal are welcome.


The Security Council;

Iterating that North East Somerset has been an active force—often working behind the scenes—that has striven since first appearing in 2004 to accomplish many nefarious deeds for the gain of their Imperialist and raider allies.

Observing that the first notable contribution to the world by North East Somerset, through their satellite nation Praedonia, was the co-founder of the raiding region the New DEN, which was born of their view that the previous iteration of DEN was one riddled with disorganized leadership and feeble security. The replacement of the original enacted many destructive raids on innocent regions.

Disturbed by the nature of the particular positions which have been held by North East Somerset in numerous raider or Imperialist regions and organizations, including but not limited to:

• Prince and Kaiser Consort, Intelligence Director, and member of the Military Council of The New Inquisition, an infamous Imperialist region known for many shocking acts detailed herein.
• King of Great Britain and Ireland, a region which worked against the betterment of the wider community by aiding those intent on seizing control of sovereign entities without the consent of their native populace.
• Secretary of Intelligence for the interregional capitalist-centered alliance known as the Alliance of Capitalists, Conservatives, and Economic Libertarians (ACCEL), an entity North East Somerset considered to be a proto-Imperialist alliance, where they were charged primarily with purging defenders and defender-leaning powers from their sphere of influence.
• Field Marshal of the United Imperial Armed Forces, a powerhouse of a military organization that stymied defenders for years and captured many regions, particularly those affiliated with the Founderless Regions Alliance.

Distressed by the knowledge that this nation authorized military aid for Lady Phedre in the August 2008 Empire coup of The East Pacific with their Imperialist region Great Britain and Ireland while serving as sovereign of that region.

Alarmed that the Crimson Order coup of The North Pacific by Lewis and Clark received the support of The New Inquisition with the full encouragement of North East Somerset.

Shocked that North East Somerset directed the infiltration of the Founderless Regions Alliance by means of Wibblefeet, an operative left in place for five years who served as Arch-Chancellor of the organization during that time, reporting everything during their infiltration back to North East Somerset, who was the head of The New Inquisition's intelligence department.

Appalled that North East Somerset planned and executed operations whose infamy lives on to this day in regions of great influence, such as:

• The unseating of Founderless Regions Alliance member Northern Chittowa as Delegate of Lazarus in April 2008, a raid executed with the intention of pursuing plans to later take control of Lazarus itself.
• The infamous raid of Belgium in early 2012, which was on its own yet another an act of aggression against uninvolved natives.
• The coup of The Rejected Realms on February 2, 2012, enacted through the raid of Belgium, which propelled the military forces of The New Inquisition into the Delegacy of The Rejected Realms. These actions were committed while the nation was a key member of a signatory region of the Pan Sinker Security Pact, displaying their lack of respect for fellow signatories of non-aggression treaties.

Concerned that this was not the end of their maneuvers in the Sinker regions, as North East Somerset was located in Balder nearly from its inception and gradually siphoned control of the region from its stewards during this time, beginning with several instances of electoral engineering to enact the seizure of critical assets to the region. This kick-started the process of driving the defenders from the United Defenders League from Balder and claiming the region as their own.

Dismayed that North East Somerset was the main pioneer in uncovering the art of raising impenetrable defenses in raided regions, preventing defending forces from liberating those regions from the invading forces.

Adamantly Believing that North East Somerset is more than deserving of a Condemnation for their aforementioned heinous deeds of subversion across the world.

Hereby Condemns North East Somerset.

APPALLED that North East Somerset planned and executed several anti-Defender operations whose infamy lives on to this day in greatly influential regions, such as:

OBSERVING that the first notable contribution to the world by North East Somerset was by their alias Praedonia, which co-founded the raiding region the New DEN after regarding the previous iteration as one riddled with disorganized leadership and feeble security, something they desired to replace with a more efficient, successful, and secure iteration.

DISTURBED by the nature of the particular positions which have been held by North East Somerset in numerous raider or Imperialist regions and organizations, including but not limited to:
- Prince and Kaiser Consort, Intelligence Director, and member of the Military Council of The New Inquisition, a famed Imperialist region known for many shocking acts detailed herein.

Full support! The only issue might be with the influence part:

This discovery granted raiders ease in their operations from the moment of discovery to this very day.

This is worded in a very complicated way and takes up a lot of space. I believe this could be shortened, maybe "...in discovering what was part of a system of regional defense on raided regions before defenders..." would be an idea to work with. For the rest, this looks good to me!

Thanks, Jo. Since nobody is really offering much commentary, I'll give it another week before aiming for submission to see if anyone responds to that part. :p

I would need to know what the thought process behind this word choice is before I could say something like "this is incorrect"; "Penultimate" means 'next from last' and it seems to me like this may be a deliberate use of it instead of a mix-up between it and the word "ultimate". The reason I'm pointing it out is that it seems kind of odd to say "x was y's next to last concern" without immediately following it up with what the final concern was.

In the context of this clause "infamous" is definitely a better word choice than "famed".
- Intelligence officer for ACCEL, charged primarily with purging defenders and defender influences from NationStates.

I think a little bit more information on ACCEL, even if only a brief summary of what it was. While I'm not the most well-versed in NS history and perhaps have just been living under a rock, I think that my experience of never hearing of a gameplay alliance that was disbanded 11.5 years ago is likely shared by many other modern players.

The underlined bit is awkwardly phrased and may need to be revised. I reworded the blue section: technically this clause is describing the invasion of Belgium AND the coup of TRR. Rhetorically speaking, it makes more sense to argue that these were separate but connected condemnable offenses rather than simply stressing the connection, which makes it come off as a single offense.

Starting from the moment of observation up to the modern day, North East Somerset's discovery has granted raiders ease in their operations to a degree that was previously unheard of.

Idk, I tried. Once again, feel free to use any of this, but don't feel required to do so.

Overall it is well-written and well-argued. The explanation of the influence system is... awkward, but I don't believe there is a way of making it much clearer than it already is without violating Rule 4. I've never had much interaction with North East Somerset, and wouldn't know if there is anything missing or if there is anything stated here that is incorrect. One overarching comment I have is that I prefer to include nation/region links at the first mention of any nation/region just to allow readers to easily research what they're looking at, but to each their own.

I would use the phrase "behind the scenes" - makes more sense if you are casting NES in the role of an eminence grise. I agree with Eumaeus' comments about using "penultimate".

Personally I don't like the use of "iteration" twice within one clause. Maybe "version"?

Maybe "frustrated" or "hindered" instead of "stymied".

Can you "gradually seize" something? To seize something is to take hold of it suddenly and forcibly.

Not sure about the phrasing of this clause. Maybe "Dismayed that NES was the main pioneer in the art of raising impenetrable defences in raided regions, preventing defending forces from liberating those regions from the invading forces".

It's a well-written and very well argued proposal. I've just suggested some minor modifications.

:roll:
But it could hardly use that alternative name when taking action and expect to be perceived as being a different nation, could it?
I think that referring to a puppet (or saying something along the lines of "acting through the supposedly-independent nation of _" ?), rather than to an alias, would be better...

Next draft up! Changed around some wording and clauses as per advice offered, as well as adjusted certain terms. As for including dates, I did so in my last two proposals so it's just a continuation of how I've been writing it.

As for adding information about ACCEL, I think the character limit is going to stop me from adding much more detail. It always stops me at 2000 characters so I'm likely going to have to shorten a number of things when I try to submit. :p

I realize I’m nobody but is there any chance you can remove "NationStates" from the proposal? It annoys me even if it’s legal.

Done.

Also, if anyone has any more/last suggestions/edit ideas, please let me know. I miss updating. :p

I'm not sure NES has done anything condemnable, they've always just been a loyal and productive servant of the regions they have chosen to affiliate themselves with.

Speaking from an AWP perspective I don't think the Wibblefeet reference is really relevant enough to NES to deserve inclusion (perhaps in the Condemn TNI proposal but not this one), plus it I don't think there is anything condemnable about the way that operation was conducted - which was largely through civilian channels and without lasting damage to the region. If anything Wibblefeet contributed more than they took, and they continued to participate in AWP after the operation concluded. I'm not sure interregional organisations benefit from any regional sovereignty conventions to make infiltration condemnable in any sense.

The New DEN reference doesn't seem to contain anything condemnable, the other positions described don't really detail why NES' role in any of them is worthy of singling out for condemnation and their role in the Empire coup wasn't particularly notable for singling out either. The allegations about their role in Balder could be the subject of a separate focused condemnation but I'm not sure there are reasoned grounds for pursuing that, NES is as native as they can come in that region.

Wibblefeet is part of the TNI Condemnation as well, and since NES actually directed the Intelligence department and thus the operation during its time, I think that's as relevant as it is to that proposal given that the person who managed the whole thing is more instrumental to the ongoing than a region where 99% of the populace had no idea it was happening. I'm aware it was pretty common practice in the older days, but I still think that espionage operations are generally good material for a Condemnation.

Concerned that this was not the end of their maneuvers in the Sinker regions, as North East Somerset was located in Balder nearly from its inception and gradually siphoned control of the region from its stewards during this time, beginning with several instances of electoral engineering to enact the seizure of critical assets to the region. This kick-started the process of driving the defenders from the United Defenders League from Balder and claiming the region as their own.

Aside from the above nonsense, best of luck.

Trying to condemn an individual nation, to me, seems like a waste of SC time when you could have drafted a proposal about an entire reason. Surprisingly good research, but I'm sorry it seems it will go to waste given the voting trends.

Successfully so. Plenty of people aspire to it, but not many succeed above a certain scale without crossing into lines nobody wants to cross.
