OSS [Diplomatic Society, OOC, SIGN-UPS]

Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice.
It demands greater heroism than war.
It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience.
- Thomas Merton

Peace comes when you talk to the guy you most hate. And that's where the courage of a leader comes,
because when you sit down with your enemy, you as a leader must already have
very considerable confidence from your own constituency. - Desmond Tutu




PURPOSE AND MISSION
The OSS and her member-nations shall, from this point onward, strive to build peace, trust and tolerance between nations by providing opportunities for these nations to enter into dialog through symposiums, conferences, debates, and other Society-sponsored events. All are worthy of these three key characteristics regardless of species or the state of technology within a nation's borders or beyond so long as they in turn embrace these core characteristics as ideals to strive towards.


Image

HISTORY
The first OSS meeting was held forty-two years ago at a small lodge on an insignificant planet in the Orion Spur of the Milky Way. Representatives from four nations met in a casual setting to discuss diplomatic ties. The success of the meeting led the organizers to arrange an annual conference. An oversight committee was formed to manage the administrative tasks as well as to assist in processing memberships, organizing social events and symposiums and arranging transportation, as well as maintaining a loose network of individuals who could call upon one another in a private capacity. The Society prefers to call itself OSS (oh-ess-ess) rather than Orion Spur Society by decision of those convening members attending the second annual conference.


Image

MEETINGS AND EVENTS
Events are hosted by member-nations and held throughout the year. The Annual Society Conference (ASC) is held once per year in a location not disclosed until a few weeks prior to the meeting. ASC are normally attended by two members from each member nation.

CURRENT EVENTS:

MEMBERSHIP
All species may apply for the OSS to include but not limited to: humans, anthropomorphic races, ponies, alien races, fantasy creature races such as Fae, dragons etc, provided these nations are peaceful and able to abide by the charter. Tech levels MT and above preferred. Species unable to travel off-world may request transportation.

RULES
  1. All players will abide by NS TOS and the OSRS contents.
  2. IC Posts: we don't allow asterisk play in the IC threads, or one-liner posts. Players should resist the urge to use colored fonts or bold/italic formatting for dialog. Make an effort to write decent posts, please.
  3. Don't be a dick. (included: no spamming or godmodding, no asshats or trolling haberdashers.)

Image

RP GUIDELINES
  • Many nations do not use NationStates stats or online nation data calculators. Please keep your nation's data believable. This isn't a one-upmanship contest.
  • Please don't sign up if you plan to RP human/species rights violations, the committing of war crimes or perfidies, or play an untouchable race or species or use untouchable technology to vanquish the rest of the universe. God Mode Sues will be booted.
  • Official OSS RP will be done in the NS forum.
  • Have a problem with a player? Take it to PM. Can't resolve it? Ask for help. Our OOCs are a drama-free zone.

This character may or may not be the one you choose to send to other functions. It's a reference point for us. Representatives should be old enough to not only make legal decisions but also old enough to be taken seriously by adults. Representatives may be a head of state or head of nation. You must sign up using an existing nation's primary account; this is a NationStates nation-based RP society.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is this Society about?
Let me start by explaining what this isn't: The OSS isn't an alliance or group that engages in trade agreements or establishing trade routes. We encourage players to form trade agreements on their own (this can happen during IC threads between nations, however) or to utilize one of the many alliances on NS for that purpose. The Society isn't in need of donated troops or funds. We don't engage in "war" RP (member-nations may do that on their own), nor do we enforce laws or act as peacekeepers. The OSS is benevolent in nature. It promotes dialog; a member-nation might serve as neutral ground for peace talks or other activities (such as banquets, symposiums, sporting events etc).

Why join?
The benefits of membership, from an OOC perspective: you become affiliated with a dedicated gaming group, your nation is accepted regardless of your species or tech level, you have the opportunity not only participate in character RP but to also host OSS events on your own, you have the opportunity to network with experienced players and that will help your own nation grow - or - you're an experienced player and can help newer nations learn RPing tricks.

Who can join?
New and experienced players are welcome. All nations may apply regardless of their tech level, species or beliefs provided those beliefs are in line with the OSS Mission Statement and Charter. Applications are approved by the current Officers by committee. The OSS reserves the right to deny any application.

This is an alliance, right?
Nope. It's a RP group based on a concept similar to the real life Bilderber Group. Your nation's citizens may or may not be aware of us - this especially works for MT and PMT nations that are hesitant to work with FT nations for fear of destroying their own canon. We are not beholden to any alliance, region or nation.

How do my people get to meetings and stuff? I'm a 1950's era Pony nation.
Ask. If you have a good enough reason for your 1950's era Pony nation to be involved with the OSS then we'll find a way to establish transportation, even if it's another nation offering to take your representatives to events.

Where are we headquartered?
The headquarter's physical location is on Pax Concordia Station, Tribus Sector. There are two alliances that share the station as well as a branch office of the International Red Cross.

I wear teal, blue & pink for Swith
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.

NATIONAL INFORMATION

Nation's Full Name: The Glorious Borderlands of Swith Witherward
Technology Level: FT
Government Type: Cybersyntactic Geniocracy
Head of State: Lord D'Prieg
Head of Government: Collective Chorus
Main Political Ideology: There are two ideologies which spar. These are lifted from greater Nifid ideologies and are not necessarily considered good or bad by the populace. The first is eco-socialism. Witherwards are socialist in design. The Green Red Society (aka the "Watermelon Society") tends to promote a more extreme view, disparaging the nation's main industry because it serves as a prime example of the greed of capitalism. (Witherward autarky was brushed aside in favor of scientific conquest which requires money if the intent is to combine efforts with other nations) and thus tourism became a major industry.) The Nifidium Convocation (from which the colony first stems) embrace Ecofascism. The witherward found itself gripped by the 1971 Clash of Sensibilities from which rose the neo-ecofascist movement. This party and its supporters are extremely nationalistic and devoted to the nation's extreme stance on environmentalism. There is little to remark upon regarding age or gender or orientation issues, nor is there any form of speciesism or racism. There's begrudging acceptance of material wealth and power, but materialism and other capitalist "diseases" are an offense to those that hold fast to the NEF beliefs. It should be noted that none of these are political parties per se. The witherward (like her parent) is a geniocracy. Eco-socialism and ecofascism are personal beliefs.
Primary Species: xenocombine (human, construct, wreaver)
Homeworld Location: Colony location - Earth
Embassy Link: Please visit here to inquire about our embassy program or to apply.

DETAILS AND PURPOSE

Has your nation committed war crimes? No
If "Yes", please explain:

Do you agree with the OSS mission purpose? Yes

Name: OBRN 1v7 (Oberon Trilb)
Title: Orator
Species: higher construct
Age: (Representatives must be adults) 42 cycles out of circulation
Gender: male
Languages spoken: many (linked to linguistic database)
Background: a higher construct designed for the Corps Diplomatique. Orators function as a proxy with direct connection to the Collective Chorus

The formatting looks nice.

We could use an expansion. I know there are four primary officers but adding a few more would help take some of the pressure off those four. We could leave app approval and governance up to that primary group, but also have committees that deal with things players find interest in. How about a committee that looks into FTL designs? A committee that focuses on disease prevention and control? I know the Bilderberg Group gets a lot of bad PR (Oh gosh! Illuminati!) because of how they operate but they also do a lot to move vital things along by cutting through a lot of red tape and whining.

My reasoning is that we can bud RPs off those concepts/committees. A group travels to some bog of a planet to obtain samples to cure a disease that's killing the population. Along the way they encounter something about that nation that leads to an even more intense adventure. Or a conference for FTL where we invite some of the sage II FTers to give their input in an IC setting... a sort of "welcome to the space race" thing catering to those new to FT or those nations just advancing from PMT to FT.

NATIONAL INFORMATION

Nation's Full Name: The Glorious Borderlands of Swith Witherward
Technology Level: FT
Government Type: Cybersyntactic Geniocracy
Head of State: Lord D'Prieg
Head of Government: Collective Chorus
Main Political Ideology: There are two ideologies which spar. These are lifted from greater Nifid ideologies and are not necessarily considered good or bad by the populace. The first is eco-socialism. Witherwards are socialist in design. The Green Red Society (aka the "Watermelon Society") tends to promote a more extreme view, disparaging the nation's main industry because it serves as a prime example of the greed of capitalism. (Witherward autarky was brushed aside in favor of scientific conquest which requires money if the intent is to combine efforts with other nations) and thus tourism became a major industry.) The Nifidium Convocation (from which the colony first stems) embrace Ecofascism. The witherward found itself gripped by the 1971 Clash of Sensibilities from which rose the neo-ecofascist movement. This party and its supporters are extremely nationalistic and devoted to the nation's extreme stance on environmentalism. There is little to remark upon regarding age or gender or orientation issues, nor is there any form of speciesism or racism. There's begrudging acceptance of material wealth and power, but materialism and other capitalist "diseases" are an offense to those that hold fast to the NEF beliefs. It should be noted that none of these are political parties per se. The witherward (like her parent) is a geniocracy. Eco-socialism and ecofascism are personal beliefs.

We could use an expansion. I know there are four primary officers but adding a few more would help take some of the pressure off those four. We could leave app approval and governance up to that primary group, but also have committees that deal with things players find interest in. How about a committee that looks into FTL designs? A committee that focuses on disease prevention and control? I know the Bilderberg Group gets a lot of bad PR (Oh gosh! Illuminati!) because of how they operate but they also do a lot to move vital things along by cutting through a lot of red tape and whining.

My reasoning is that we can bud RPs off those concepts/committees. A group travels to some bog of a planet to obtain samples to cure a disease that's killing the population. Along the way they encounter something about that nation that leads to an even more intense adventure. Or a conference for FTL where we invite some of the sage II FTers to give their input in an IC setting... a sort of "welcome to the space race" thing catering to those new to FT or those nations just advancing from PMT to FT.

Thank you. Compliments will get you everywhere. Min is the DCSC (haven't added him to the roster yet because he hasn't applied officially here although he's currently a member. He's the one you'd need to network with to get some groups/committees set up. There's also a spot on the OSF where members can pitch ideas or make requests. http://w11.zetaboards.com/Orion_Spur_Society/forum/4170591/

We still need a SecGen. It has to be someone willing to spend time networking on the OSF. You mentioned taking on DPR responsibilities. That's open to you still.

A few more should apply after the weekend. I'd forgotten it was homecoming weekend for two.

NATIONAL INFORMATION

Nation's Full Name: The Princessipality of Cavallagna
Technology Level: Late PMT/Early FT
Government Type: Constitutional Matriarchal Monarchy
Head of State: Princess Radienta Eminenza VI
Head of Government: Chancellor Fontano Penna
Main Political Ideology: Democratic socialism, social conservatism; very matriarchal, with few males being able to practically get elected to government positions or inherit titles in the nobility. There are no political parties and the formation of political parties is forbidden by law, with the Princess and the Princess alone allowing candidates to run for office, making the nation hardly a true democracy.
Primary Species: (if alien, please indicate) Earth Pony (Anthropomorphic)
Homeworld Location: Mareupea (Commonly simply known as the Mareupean, named after the sea that covers it; it is a water world.)

REPRESENTATIVE DETAILS

Name: Ictus Calligrafia
Title: Chargé
Species: Unicorn Pony (Anthropomorphic)
Age: (Representatives must be adults) 27
Gender: Male
Languages spoken: Italian (primary language), Latin, English, French
Background: Ictus is the youngest child out of four and the only son; his family has roots in very old Cavallagnese nobility, though their influence has largely declined over the years. Unlike the overwhelming majority of the population, he and his family are Unicorns, the largest other race in the nation aside from Earth Ponies, though still only making up slightly more than one percent of the total. His older sisters went on to pursue careers as Celestine Priestesses; his mother ensured that he was sent off to serve in some equally important capacity, ultimately landing him a minor position in the Foreign Ministry. One of very few males to serve in the government, he holds the position almost solely due to his noble blood.
Criminal record: None.
Are there any security/health/dietary issues local authorities should be alerted of? No.
Is your representative capable of magic? If so, please describe: Yes; basic telekinesis and a few very basic spells (e.g. a spell to create a source of light)

The Democratic Utopian Republic of Planeia:
Planeian Committee of Xeno Affairs



TO: The Orion Spur Society
FROM: Chairwoman Aiya Elanato of the Planeian Committee of Xeno Affairs
SUBJECT: Membership
ENCRYPTION: 0%



Asavendi!

We value peace and diplomacy; cooperation for prosperity. We believe it is imperative to fight with words instead of weapons. We use diplomacy first in all situations, leaving military action as the absolute last resort, and only in self-defense, hence our military is named the "Planeian Self-Defense Force". We hope that by joining the OSS, we could help encourage cooperation among nations, in a world where violent leaders are quick to devolve into invasions and the usage of destructive weapons such as fission bombs over a difference of ideologies or even the most trivial of matters. We offer peace, utopia, and technology.

Please find our application in the attachments.

NATIONAL INFORMATION

Nation's Full Name: The Democratic Utopian Republic of Planeia
Technology Level: Future Tech
Government Type: Federal Democratic Republic
Head of State: Prime Elder Fos Kolee
Head of Government: Prime Councilman Ebedius Kontar II
Main Political Ideology: Synthtopia, or Egalitarian Synthtopia. Synthtopia is Utopia achieved through technology and science. It entails peace, liberty, and especially an ideal standard of living, and it is argued whether or not it entails equality, fostering the need to add "Egalitarian" when referring to Planeia's model. However, many believe that it indeed does include equality, and simply say "Synthtopia".
Primary Species: (if alien, please indicate) Planeians (Galexen nurectius)
Homeworld Location: Local Galaxy (Milky Way), Xelktexium Cluster (Eagle Nebula), first planet (Planeia) from Star System Olctaium. We are located approximately 2140 parsecs, or 7000 light years, from Sol and Earth.
Embassy Link (if applicable): Here

DETAILS AND PURPOSE

Has your nation committed war crimes? No.
If "Yes", please explain: N/A
Do you hold membership in any other alliances? (please list/link) The Multi-Species Union.
Do you agree with the OSS mission purpose? Wholeheartedly.

REPRESENTATIVE DETAILS

Name: Macha Perox
Title: Mrs.
Species: Planeian (Galexen nurectius)
Age: (Representatives must be adults) 452 (226 Anno Units)
Gender: Female Woman
Languages spoken: English, Japanese, Planeian, Tratanese
Background: Born in the Wisternium Continent of Planeia, Macha Perox, like many Planeian politicians, devoted much of her life to society. She was very outspoken, and voiced her opinions of politics whenever possible. She often convinced her parents to elect officials on her behalf, and to petition a motion for referendum in regards to policies in her local community.

At age seven, she both graduated from grade school and gained emancipation (there is no set age for either, it's based on a case-by-case basis determined by exams), and attended Therma University in Arcthro Letium to pursue a degree in Political Science. After graduating from Therma at age 13, she moved to Harkshai in the Tratan Continent and lived there for one hundred years.

Studying at various Omnitetian monasteries, she met her wife, Yra TinXi, an Omnitetian nun and Ho Gun Oh master. Together they had five children. Each of them went on to pursue similar careers as their mothers', save for one who joined the PSDF.

Perox and her family moved back to Wisternium, where she served in city councils, a provincial legislature, and eventually in the Senate of the High Council. After the First Contact with Earth, she was appointed as Ambassador to Japan, however eleven years later she has been reassigned as the representative to the Orion Spur Society.

Criminal record: None
Are there any security/health/dietary issues local authorities should be alerted of? Like all Planeians, extremely loud sounds, ultra-high frequencies, or the combination of the two could damage her ears.
Is your representative capable of magic? If so, please describe: No... well actually, her wife has mastered Cha Control from being a Ho Gun Oh master, but that is based on telekinetic abilities locked deep within the brain, so still no.

It's not what a nation can do but what a player actually has experience in, IRL. Officers aren't IC positions although the players can drop a character in for IC announcements or RP use. Min was chosen because he has a crapton of experience when it comes to meshing genre in a game, communicating to a player base, designing RP, teaching, and delegating responsibility. That doesn't mean he keeps the position forever. They come up for vote. I had voiced an interest in it, but Min was better qualified even though I'm a Mentor familiar with all those aspects.

The reason behind that is we're a repository group, not an alliance, meaning we're forming a pool of players that we can draw from when we want to run character-based RP. We're working together to build up our nations' canon, but also we've formed a group where we don't have to worry that some trifling little asshat will destroy our RPG by posting "I burn down teh palace and kill all the wimmenz". It's why we won't bar people if their nation practices things like slavery, and we'd allow a fascist nation in. The players themselves have to have the ability to play those things off well, though.

For those wondering... the OSS has been in the works a long while now, although the name and scope changed as time went on. especially after the MSU came along. We didn't want to detract from that group's purpose so we tweaked the OSS' purpose to make it less "protect all the peoples" and more "provide a safe gaming haven for all the players". There are notes upon notes upon notes, and so many "op boxes" drafts! That's why the officer positions are pretty much filled. The players have been involved in the creation process and are familiar with the basics, and what did and didn't work during the thinking process. That doesn't mean that incoming players can't leave their mark. We've left things wide open, so players can form committees and other groups to enhance their own game experience.

Why is everyone a social justice warrior?
Why didn't any of you choose a different class,
like social justice mage or social justice thief?
Anti-intellectual elitism: the dismissal of science, the arts, and humanities and their replacement by entertainment, self-righteousness, ignorance, and deliberate gullibility.

NATIONAL INFORMATION

Nation's Full Name: The Exceptionalist Cryptarchy of Transgravitas Directorate
Technology Level: PMT
Government Type: Demarchic Corporatocracy
Head of State: Chosen at random/at need from the members of the Commission Regnant; currently Joseph Conners, Commissioner Regnant for Health & Environment
Head of Government: Commission Regnant
Main Political Ideology: Traditionally isolationist, the Directorate favors peace and stability through economic strength, and as such heavily orients itself toward financial development. Neo-guild capitalism is the foundation for society, law, and government; the example most apparent to outsiders is the structure of the Directorate's diplomatic service, with ranks as follows: Trade Commissioner, Trade Representative, Senior Trade Liaison, Trade Liaison (highest to lowest). There is an inclination toward cultural assimilationism of lower-tech civilizations among fringe groups, but the majority of the populace - and, more importantly, the current leadership - sees trade as the optimal way to establish relations with other nations. The prevailing belief is that the fringe will be further marginalized by increased contacts with the outside.
Primary Species: (if alien, please indicate) Human
Homeworld Location: Earth
Embassy Link (if applicable): Not yet established; see isolationism, traditional.

'I'm not just hard. I'm NP-hard, baby.'


That I never be arrogant; but if I should have that flaw, let it be the arrogance of collective guilt.
