Sky Haven | Diurnalis 6 - Long time coming

Welcome to Sky Haven!

Discord | Wiki | Carta Caelorum

Sky Haven is a new region, aiming to be a cozy, comfy, and casual community. A floating refuge in the sky, we aim to provide a place to relax and have fun.
NationStates can be hectic from time to time, so sometimes it's nice to have a place to relax, and casually enjoy the game.

WHO ARE WE?

Sky Haven was founded on 22 December 2020 by Omukama SkyGreen24 (Brox Reple), and has an island-in-the-sky theme, as well as drawing inspiration from religion and mythology all over the world. We have an executive government (called the Domus) with an elected head and deputy head of government and an appointed cabinet. Our regional legislature, the Lawgrove, comprises all citizens, and the three Magistrates sit on our court to form our judicial branch.

Most activity and discussion takes place on our discord, where we also run weekly game nights, share music, and chat casually (come and say hi!); our wiki mainly serves an organisational purpose.

The Sky Haven Diurnalis - Sky Haven Appears on the Horizon

December 22, 2020 - Founding


Sky Haven was founded by Brox Reple, better known as SkyGreen24, on December 22, 2020. Intended to be a “cozy, comfy, and casual community”, the region was soon filled with activity after Sky invited people to the region’s Discord server to help him lay the founding bricks.

Designating himself as the Demiurge, Sky separated the government into the Domus (the Executive branch), Lawgrove (the Legislative branch), and Magistracy (the Judicial branch). An interim government was formed. Maowi became Majordomo (Head of the Executive), Rotasu became Keeper of the Grove (Head of the all-citizen Legislature), and the Magistracy consisted of Archmagistrate Josi and Magistrates Seva and GC. Siphlygon and Ervald were invited as well.

Sky Haven was themed around mythology from various cultures, with its Independent military named the Kali Paladins and a bot in the Discord server named after Dionysus, the Greek god of wine. Sky designed the flag to include a symbol of Uranus, the Roman god of the sky. On top of these mythology references, the region was, befitting its name, also themed around the island of Laputa from the animated film “Castle in the Sky” by Hayao Miyazaki.

Interview with the Demiurge


We reached out to the Demiurge, Sky, to find out how and why exactly he founded the region. "I had wanted to found a region for a while already, I've been an on again off again NS player since 2013 and since I stuck around when the pandemic started, the idea of founding a region slowly crept up on me. One day I was just checking out regions, thinking I might find something interesting, and I noticed a region called Sky Haven. The previous founder had not logged in for quite some time, I think they were on vacation mode, so I thought, why don't I put it in my dossier. After a few weeks the founder CTE'd and the region disappeared, I didn't think much of it until two-three weeks later when I thought to myself, if they're not going to use it, maybe I could. And so, Sky Haven was (re)founded by myself."

Sky was also asked which challenges he faced in the first month after founding. "Well, at first it was, what should I even do with this place? I didn't know much, and was very new to this aspect of the game. Once I stabilized a bit I had the first big challenge, how to find members? I could obviously simply start recruiting, but I didn't feel comfortable doing this rather big project all by myself. So I reached out to a few dear friends of mine, and that got the ball rolling."

February 9, 2021 - Passage of the Carta Caelorum


After Sky Haven was founded and the main ideas and elements were set up and decided on, the first item on the agenda was nothing other than the very important task of writing a Constitution! In an effort led by our Demiurge (founder) SkyGreen24, our original Keeper of the Grove Comrade Rotasu, and our first elected Keeper Siphlygon, although contributions were made by all the Octarchons (the eight founding members), we gradually produced our Carta Caelorum. It was passed in a unanimous Octarchon vote on February 9, establishing the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government, as well as Demiurge powers and citizen rights. Recruitment efforts began at this juncture, bringing in our very first group of non-founding citizens. SkyGreen24 used his Carta-granted power immediately upon its passage to dissolve the initial government he had appointed and call for elections. Thus the age of democracy began in Sky Haven!

February 17 - First Election in Sky Haven


Elections opened on February 10th for the positions of Majordomo/Magnadomo who run the executive and the Keeper who runs the Lawgrove. For Majordomo and Magnadomo, two tickets stood: Maowi/Ervald and Rotasu/Seva. Maowi and Ervald posted their platform on the 10th while Rotasu and Seva withdrew on the 16th from the race without posting a platform. Only Siphlygon ran for Keeper who stood on the 12th. 7 days later from the beginning, voting begun on the 17th with Maowi/Ervald and Siphlygon voted in unanimously for Majordomo/Magnadomo and Keeper respectively.

February 20, 2021 - Confirmation of Minordomos, Start of Term


On February 20, the Lawgrove officially confirmed the new Minordomos (Ministers) and Magistrates nominated by Maowi and Ervald. Sky became Minordomo of Interior, Rotasu was confirmed as Minordomo of Culture, and Seva was appointed Minordomo of Media and Foreign Affairs. The three Magistrates nominated and confirmed were Josi, GC, and Rotasu. All confirmations were unanimous.

The start of the term in Interior was signified by work on dispatches outlying the region's structure, and continued recruiting efforts. As of March 7, nearly 50 nations currently reside in the region, with 13 people being citizens. Even before the confirmation, the Culture Domuncula had released a poll regarding Weekend Game times, and a successful Skribbl.io game was hosted on February 20; and in the two following weeks we played Cards Against Humanity and Gartic Phone. The Media and Foreign Affairs Domuncula has set up a nation for Foreign Affairs updates and is reaching out to like-minded regions. Even during the interim government, on-site embassies had been established with Hyperico, Aurellius, and Kaer Solas, all of them regions that were founded recently. In addition to that, we got in touch with some bigger regions: we established an embassy with Thaecia on their Discord server and made contact with Kantrias. We currently are looking for other regions interested in establishing relations!

March, 2021 - Ministerial Happenings


Since our last update in early March, the domunculae have been keeping themselves busy. The Domuncula of Culture hosted games from Onmuga which included Battlesnake and Cambio on March 20th and had 4 players show up. Several citizens of Sky Haven participated in a game of tetr.io with our friends in Inferno Stellaria on March 19th. Interior is still recruiting nations to Sky Haven with 68 nations now residing in the region and several new citizens applying for off-site citizenship on our forums and joining our Discord. With the help of Maowi and Dyl, Interior has put together a master dispatch to help direct residents and citizens to the right place for what they're looking for. Over in foreign affairs, we are currently in the process of negotiating a treaty! We can't reveal much more than that but we are looking forward to the launch of it once it is finalized.

March, 2021 - Changes in Government


On March 26, Maowi resigned from the position of Majordomo. In a short announcement, she explained that "due to changes in real-life circumstances, [she had] with much regret decided to step down from service". Magnadomo Ervald became the new Majordomo, in accordance with the Carta Carlorum. "It is an honor to be succeeding her and I hope to live up to your expectations," said Ervald in his opening address. SkyGreen24 was nominated for the position of Magnadomo as "an active leader in our community", and he is currently on track to be confirmed unanimously by the Lawgrove. Additionally, the Lawgrove is currently discussing election law, judicial law, and criminal law, and elections for Keeper of the Grove are open. We are happy to report that our region has laid all foundation bricks, and our main goal now is to foster activity while keeping our comfy and casual vibe going!

Good luck, guys! There are so many ways to earn money in the internet, but most of them require some special skills, but not gambling in India gambling-india.in. Most of people don't believe it, but once you try slots or roulette you gonna understand how profitable it is. If you register now you still might get a welcome bonus.

The Sky Haven Diurnalis - Up in the Sky

Postby Sky Haven Foreign Affairs Office » Fri May 21, 2021 10:35 am

April, 2021 - Elections, elections


Elections for the Sky Haven executive, the Domus, have been held. Ervald (Zeefeld) stood for the position of Majordomo with SkyGreen24 (Brox Reple). Though there was a lack of competition, the ticket proved to be the preferred choice of the active userbase.

Later the same month, Siphlygon (Skylygon) stood for another term as Keeper of the Grove, also without rivals. Similarly enough, he was also elected with a unanimous support of Sky Haven's active userbase.

The next election will also be for the Keeper of the Grove, held at the end of May, 2021.

April - May, 2021 - Diplomatic Happenings and Growth


All of our ambassador positions are now filled and we have just opened up a forum embassy with Europeia! Sky Haven have had exciting steady growth over these past few months and we now have over 90 nations!y upon its passage to dissolve the initial government he had appointed and call for elections. Thus the age of democracy began in Sky Haven!

April - May, 2021 - Weekend games


Game nights are being held in Sky Haven, including games such as Skribble and Codenames. Minordomo of Culture Dyl (Daffodyl) has also sent out forms in order to determine the popularity of certain games and availability of users, so that even more of Sky Haven's citizens, denizens and travellers can enjoy fun games during the weekend.

May, 2021 - Treaty with Kantrias


Sky Haven and Kantrias have established a treaty of friendship called the Treaty of Caldemar, named in honor of Kantrias' monarch, between the two regions with a focus on collaboration in all areas including but not limited to cultural, diplomatic, military, and intelligence cooperation. The treaty was ratified by Sky Haven's legislature, the Lawgrove, on May 6th and the treaty is still going through the process of ratification in Kantrias. Before negotiations begun, the two regions established forumside embassies with each other and exchanged ambassadors. We in Sky Haven look forward to what will come out of this treaty with Kantrias!

The Sky Haven Diurnalis Issue 4 - Lofty Heights

Postby Sky Haven Foreign Affairs Office » Sat Feb 05, 2022 8:39 am

Issue 4 - Lofty Heights
Read it in dispatch form (pretty pictures included)

Elections in Sky Haven

Following the Ervald/Zeefeld term in Sky Haven's Domus, SkyGreen/Brox Reple was elected to be the next Majordomo. During that term the Lawgrove passed the Elections Edict, further formalizing the electoral process. SkyGreen's Cabinet included Magnadomo Ervald, who also server as Minordomo of Interior, Minordomo of Foreign Affairs Jaime/Fraelands, and Dyl/Daffodyl as Minister of Culture.

After some delays and amendments to Sky Haven's core document the Carta Caelorum, a new Domus Election was held, with terms now being increased to 90 days. Jamie and his running mate, current WAD Rotasu, won a reinvigorating election that jumpstarted a new era for Sky Haven.

The Sky Haven Wiki

Following an analysis of forum/discord activity on Sky Haven, the government worked hard to replace the forum with a dedicated wiki, dubbed the Library of the Lawgrove, whose purpose is to document official internal and external matters the region, including (but not limited to) legislations, treaties, and embassy updates.

Additionally, it provides denizens and citizens an organized place to create nation page and engage in world building, including many useful templates and infoboxes to make the process easier, simpler, and more streamlined.

For information on the Library please contact either Jamie or SkyGreen on the Sky Haven discord server

Lawgrove Activity

The all-citizen legislature has been continuously passing new laws in order to ensure structure and stability to the region. As mentioned above, the Election Edict was passed to ensure a coherent structure to the voting system of the region, followed by Carta Caelorum amendments lengthening the terms of the Domus, the Lawgrove, and the Magistracy. The last law to be passed on the forums was the Legislation Edict, as it further established the Library to be the primary place to submit legislation.

The Library of the Lawgrove Act defined the official obligations and ways the Government will use the Library, whereas the Government Insignia Act defined the official seals to be used by the various members of the government.

Military Success

Sky Haven's very own military organization, the Kali Paladins, have engaged in successful military operations of the antifascist nature. Two fascist regions were identified and refounded so as to ensure that they cannot serve as nodes for hate to organize and spread.

Unixea was the first region identified based on its fascist tag and hateful content in the World Factbook Entry (WFE). Furthermore, The Southern Alliance of Allhu Ak Ba, a fascist region that exhibited islamophobia and included nazi members, was occupied and refounded after several days of amassing the necessary influence.

The Paladins' military operations not only included the advance of the antifascist cause, but also successful training for new members who only recently entered the R/D sphere.

End of the Year Address by Majordomo Jamie

The Sky Haven Diurnalis brings part of an official statement from Majordomo Jamie posted on New Years' Eve:
"Dear Citizens, Denizens, Foreign Dignitaries and Travellers,

We are at the end of what has been another tumultuous year in the real world, but it has seen great strides for Sky Haven. Although I have not personally been here from the start, this time last year, Sky Haven was a small, new region which was just finding its way in the NationStates community. Over the last year, the development of Sky Haven has been amazing. From the passing of the Carta Caelorum (the nation's Constitution) to the multiple embassies and interregional agreements that have been signed, we have progressed massively.

A large portion of credit is down to Demiurge SkyGreen and the rest of the Octarchon who have put in huge amounts of effort to help us grow. But credit must also go to you. Without you, Sky Haven would not be where it is. The sense of community felt in the RMB along with the welcoming arms of other regions have helped us create a strong base from which we can only grow.

And that leads me onto the future. Over the next year, Sky Haven can only get better and better. Ending the first month as Majordomo, you may not have heard much from me, but I can assure you that lots has been going on behind the scenes."
