The Red Fleet · Admiralty Board Changes Announced

What Is The Red Fleet?
The Red Fleet is one of the pre-eminent members of Antifa—an alliance of Anti-Fascist regions, especially those with leftist politics. As a member of Antifa, The Red Fleet does not fit neatly into the general categories of "raider" or "defender" as used by the wider Gameplay population. We straddle the border between the two: we raid Fascist regions, and we defend Leftists and any region that finds itself threatened by our enemies.

In addition to our collaboration with Antifa, we also operate against militant anti-communist and militant capitalist regions with our Leftist brothers-in-arms.



What Has The Red Fleet Done?
The Red Fleet has engaged in countless operations since its inception. Notably, The Red Fleet has:

  • Worked to put NAZI EUROPE out of commission—Antifa soldiers made up 1/3 of the endorsements in the final stage of this raid, with The Red Fleet bringing the most among Antifa contributors;
  • Destroyed The Greater German Reich, formerly the most notorious Nazi region on NationStates; and
  • Has taken an interregional leadership role by aiding Antifa and the Coalition Against the Ideology of Nazism in their respective destruction of the decade-old Nazi regions The URAP and The NSIA, which included the first public use of the TRF toolkit.




Why Should I Join The Red Fleet? How?
You should join The Red Fleet if you are looking for a side of NationStates Gameplay that is not fulfilled by the traditional Raider/Defender organizations. If you are a principled anti-fascist or leftist who wants a meaningful (well, as meaningful as anything can be on a point-and-click browser game) way to be a part of the struggle against fascism and to engage in class warfare through NationStates. If you are attracted to Gameplay for these reasons, but have no idea how to get involved—The Red Fleet has training available to get you up to speed quickly.

The Red Fleet Sailor's Guide to Military Gameplay is freely available to all Sailors—a sample is publicly available from our Library.

How can you join? Register on our offsite forum and post a Rate Application. If it is approved, you will automatically be added to the Fleet's ranks and will have access to our Discord server.

¡No pasarán!

The Red Fleet has had Socialist Pact under its watchful gaze for some time, and when "raider purists" under the flag of USSD and its allies invaded the region two months ago, The Red Fleet put its nations on a watchlist. For two months, the Fleet sat and watched while undisciplined USSD raiders shuffled WA in and out of the region to pile for larger and more successful militaries' apolitical raids against non-fascist regions, including removing WA from the point nation on multiple occasions. These actions greatly lengthened the deployment period of USSD troops beyond what would have been required of a focused and well-trained military group.

The Admiralty Board of The Red Fleet determined that, despite their defacement of the World Factbook Entry to read that Socialist Pact was "being secured by the Leftist (sic) Unity Forces of USSF and CTSN from future Fascist assaults," USSD was not concerned in any sense with the security of Socialist Pact beyond securing its control over a late-updating region. The Red Fleet was therefore determined to properly secure Socialist Pact against fascist or apolitical raider attack when the opportunity arose.

When USSD troops moved out of Socialist Pact or were ejected around 10 PM on Tuesday, December 6, klaxons aboard The Red Fleet's ships sounded to alert its commanders to the move. Six elite sailors of The Red Fleet and one soldier from the Thirteenth of October Anti Fascist Group from Revolutionary Socialist League mustered with short notice, on a weekday that for many fell in the middle of an exam week, to rally to the defense of a region that updates near the end of the now two-hour long major update.

Biding their time until the last moment, Red Fleet sailors moved in with precision ten seconds prior to update, with most sailors entering in between the two USSD troops' exit. Only six sailors made the jump, with one called away only minutes before update by the start of an exam. No resistance was presented, and only one Fleet sailor made a brief stop in The Rejected Realms after being ejected after update had already passed.

After major update passed, reserve sailors moved into the region to shore up the Fleet's defenses.

The Red Fleet intends to properly secure Socialist Pact, in keeping with the Fleet's long-standing defensive policy which
  • Turns away any further raid attempts on the region, and therefore
  • Reduces the number of potential raid targets, which consequently
  • Filters the region out of the spread of vulnerable regions to patrol.

The Red Fleet intends to continue the use of Communist, its current late-updating jump point.

Pax ignescens!

We actually had the support of one of the natives in that operation, probably the only active one in the region. After the region was re-founded and secured, we would have turned it into a jump point. However, any natives that wanted to come back and establish their own regional government would be welcomed. The region would also be placed under the guidance of The Vanguard Treaty, which would have sped up the growth of Socialist Pact immensely. You, however, decided to invade fellow leftists to take a region that would have been otherwise safe under our control. You can keep using propaganda against us, but none of us here at the USSD will believe it. Great job making a several paragraph forum post over invadng a region with an active population of less than 2.

Haha, well it was either Red Fleet or defenders, so I went after both. It's not like I have any reputation to lose with either :P

(Sorry for blaming you though, I wasn't sure who the hell it was since there was 0 way of telling at first)

Who is that? Peoples socialist republic of niamhland, who you ejected a week ago after your third point had gathered enough influence to do so? They haven't been active in two weeks. Convenient!

We know.

Translation: "We were going to use their home to launch raids (including raids against other leftist regions, like we did in SLU), and would have also forcibly integrated them into our vassal system while allowing them to pretend to control their region."
Vetelo wrote:You, however, decided to invade fellow leftists

We aren't invading anyone. We restored the native WFE and embassies. That's a liberation.
Vetelo wrote:to take a region that would have been otherwise safe under our control.

Except for the fact that you rotated through three delegates over the past two months, continually pulled WA out of the region to support TIN's invasions, never secured the region, and attempted a refound on an unlocked region. That is not a recipe for "secure" under any definition of the term.

"Under our control" is the key phrase in this sentence, though. :)

I think you mean "Great job making a several paragraph forum post over interrupting our imperialist refound attempt that we spent two months on with nothing to show for it."

It's also amazing to me that you flamed defenders immediately. One of our sailors moved from Communist (our locked jump point) to the IJP. Others of us switched WA very visibly. We weren't exactly sneaky.

:oops:

Also, in investigating the claim of native support—even if you had support from Niamhland, that's not native support. They had one RMB post and were ejected and under heavy suspicion by the actually-active former members of the region, as you can see by reading through the RMB.

Very curious.

Socialist Pact secured!


Less than a week after a two-month USSD operation ended with The Red Fleet interrupting their refound attempt, The Red Fleet has secured Socialist Pact under its long-standing defensive policy of password-protection, which
  • Turns away any further raid attempts on the region, and therefore
  • Reduces the number of potential raid targets, which consequently
  • Filters the region out of the spread of vulnerable regions to patrol.

An initial, premature attempt to lock Socialist Pact was made yesterday, though initial probes at the possibility of a password kept the region from being made vulnerable by the attempt. The second attempt was successful, with Red Fleet officers clearing the region prior to the establishment of a password visible to trusted Fleet operatives. By preserving the region with a password lock, The Red Fleet keeps the region ready to be revived by its native population under the security of their native founder, though due to their long inactivity and absence from the game, this is not likely.

The Red Fleet was prepared to repel an invasion attempt by USSD, whose founder swore "I am going to take that back, fucking watch." No invasion attempt was made, nor would they have been able to field 22 updaters to take the region from the Fleet at its strongest point.

The Red Fleet intends to continue the use of Communist, its current late-updating jump point.

Pax ignescens!

with help from The MT Army:
The MT Army Leader Vippertooth33



Two months ago, ForeStarnya ceased to exist. ForeStarnya served for years as an Admiral of The Red Fleet as its original founder, having established the Fleet in 2010. His policies and procedures continue to be put into practice by Fleet sailors in the modern era. The Red Fleet was immediately made aware of his disappearance, but other defensive operations against active enemy forces took immediate precedence. In the intervening weeks, the Fleet tried to reach out to ForeStarnya outside of NationStates, but did not receive a reply. We have no reason to believe he is unwell, and believe he is just done with NationStates.

When ForeStarnya's home region and the original home of The Red Fleet, Communist International was targeted by tag raiders, The Red Fleet had no choice but to deploy to secure the region from more permanent aggression by enemies of the Fleet. An elite force of eight Red Fleet Marines, joined by The MT Army's leader, secured a foothold that was joined by soldiers and sailors from The MT Army and The Red Fleet in the following days.

Two weeks after entering the region, The Red Fleet banned the last remaining non-friendly nation and instituted a hidden password, thereby executing a defensive policy first set forth by ForeStarnya, which
  • Turns away any further raid attempts on the region, and therefore
  • Reduces the number of potential raid targets, which consequently
  • Filters the region out of the spread of vulnerable regions to patrol.

Storming into a region whose World Factbook Entry proudly proclaimed, "We are the Counter Culture, We are the Vanguard, We are the Alt Right! / And We Are Winning!", The Red Fleet showed the fascists of Alt Right that, in fact, they are not winning. Nine sailors easily overwhelmed the two native endorsements and established a forward operating base for FULLCOMMUNISM in the heart of right-wing territory.

Rather than even attempt to organize a counteroffensive, denizens of Alt Right poured out of the region into opportunistic "allies" who eagerly snapped up fascists who ran for the hills at the first sight of a communist intervention force. With the region's founder having been deleted, The Red Fleet intends to lock down Alt Right and claim permanent ownership over the fascist movement's former home.

Fleet loudspeakers played a remix of Woody Guthrie's "All You Fascists Bound to Lose," featuring additional vocals by comrade Lil Jon, who offers the following to our fascist adversaries: "FUCKIN' GOOD NIGHT!"

Official Statement by the High Government of DankMemes

DankMemes Condemns the Invasion of Alt Right. Though DankMemes is strictly against the new political movement of "Alt Right," we do support the meme culture that was fostered in the region, and voice concern on the forceful demolition of this meme community by The Red Fleet. We request that a compromise for the Alt Right meme community be made that is agreeable to both The Red Fleet and Alt Right immediately for the protection of all meme regions while also limiting the political "Alt Right" culture.

Don't think I didn't read your first version of that post. I'm not a facist nor even a conservative, for your information. I just don't like idealogical raiding.

As for the comment about my use of puppets: I figured you'd probably mark my region as facist, considering your reputation, and I'd hate to see something happen to my region.

Facism is an idealogy based on national unity and extreme nationalism, where citizens give up power to support a strong government. Nazism is the belief that a specific race is superior to all others, and other races are inferior. One idealogy is inherently racist, while the other simply has major flaws.

It is a sub-type of fascism, and as such is fascism nonetheless. Trying to paint it as "Not fascism" is a blatant way to protect the ideology with a No True Scotsman.
