Iverican: Kiss me with your full beard mouth
Derthaler: Sure my Iverican friend

CHORUS
Derthaler: We’re hanging out on the Ygros, it’s our secret tradition
Iverican: We cuddle a bit, and snuggle gently
Derthaler: and taste a bit on each others’ sausages, taste the sausage of mine
Iverican: Hey, now what is that? There’s a boat coming closer
Variotan: See the Variotan flag
Derthaler: There’s a lone man in the boat
Variotan: Hello there, my name is Jan, can I join in tonight?
Iverican: Yes, yes, of course

CHORUS
Derthaler: We’re hanging out on the Ygros

Ivercan: We f*ck gently
Derthaler: And surely we get it in the straight
All: In the straight

CHORUS
Derthaler: Yes we’re hanging out on the Ygros

CHORUS
All: Yes we’re hanging out on the Ygros
Variotan: We have big gay get-together
Iverican: You’re so beautiful
Derthaler: Do I get to see your c*ck?
Variotan: Surely, I don’t wear any pants
Derthaler and Iverican: No pants

CHORUS
All: We’ve banged out on the Ygros
Iverican: And practiced butt gymnastics
Variotan: We’ll meet again
Derthaler: Goodbye my friend
All: Next Saturday we’ll bang on Ygros, once again, once again.

So, obviously I'm in. In regards to rules, sign up sheets and what not, I suggest we look at the WorldVision Song Contest and the World Hit Festival that are held on the regular NS forums. These have existed for years (especially WVSC) and the rules are basically easy yet rigid enough to properly enforce. 

In regards to the name, I think something like EurthVision would do perfectly. EuropaVision would make more sense in regards to the region name but seeing as Europa is only one continent of Eurth, that'd be strange.

Any, signup:

I'm definitely down for this. I wouldn't mind hosting, and I do have a national music festival coming up in the summer that I'll write about in my newsroom - EuropaVision or whatever could be the grande finale if I'm chosen. 

As for the name of the contest, I propose Euravision - like Europa is Europe but with an 'a', Euravision is Eurovision but with an 'a' too. Original, I know. However, I like @Variota's idea of EurthVision too, and I'll also steal his sign-up format.

OOC: Translation of the original lyrics by Rosae Crucis:

 

Believe in us!

Faith is a cause that

the Power of the masses will elevate

Hot blood will flow like fire in your veins

Like lava from a volcano our anger will explode

 

Vengeance! Vengeance!

Now the enemy will know it

He's already lost

He's afraid

And so he'll pray

The Rose Cross

 

Faith, Power, Vengeance and Liberty

Our weapons raised to Glory

Faith, Power, Vengeance and Liberty

To Light, to Glory

 

On the ground I see the bodies of brothers

they paid for the honor of the motherland

that the past had erased with blood

But her sons are ready to rewrite history

Like their fathers, their ancestors, they still raise their swords

 

The reasons for their fighting, living, and dying

Faith - in a god

Faith - in a creed

Faith - in a people

Faith - in a man

 

Power - over nature

Power - over reason

Power - over life

Power - over death

 

Vengeance - for honor

Vengeance - for wrongs endured

Vengeance - for misery

Vengeance - for lost sons

 

Liberty!

VarioVisie
Nasionale Sang Wetstrijt voer het Eer fan Het Huisselant Variota
National Song Competition for the Honor of Our Homeland Variota

 

With the glorious nation of Variota deciding on a first time participation into the [Name To Be Added], under lead of its state television station NTSV, it remains unknown for the Variotan public and those within the domestic jury to see what is popular and can score at the contest. As such, NTSV and the Nasionale Fonts voer het Sicht fan het Kaltoer Variot (National Fund for the Promotion of Variotan Culture) have decided to set up VarioVisie, a National Final with a distinct and separate domestic and international sections.

The domestic section has decided on three artists and songs for the international juries to vote on. These international juries have been picked to include the people that are closest to the musical tastes of their nation, imagine popular artists, record studio bosses, television presenters, social media socialites and much more. In their role as the international voice within VarioVisie, they will vote on the pairings of artist and song in a way that provides the most points to their favorite and enables both nuance and a clear winner. Each jury member will receive a nice gift basket containing pure and natural products coming from 'het Huisselant'.

When all international juries have decided, the results are thrown together and the domestic audience is able to vote between the two most popular pairings, effectively eliminating one of the possibilities and potentially giving Variota a much better chance at winning the contest. As the set-up of VarioVisie is fairly simple, let us continue to the artists.

 

Artists:

Keltterrakkers - Pillen en Swag

jObYcUY.png

There isn't a tween and teen left in Variota that does not know the Waltlooper twins, Boris and Boris. The winners of Sang fan Variota, NTSV's premier talent show, in 2012, they were coached by Auwe Rukker, self-proclaimed Boytoy of Variotan Pop, and toured both Variota and other nations multiple times following their win. Their first album, 'Geluit fan het Keltter', and the pre-release single 'Kus fan je Mam' went platinum and became the first step towards success. Since then, they've scored hit after hit and recently won the Kewastemere Music Festival with their mentor and close friend Auwe Rukker. Now, they've set their sights on participating in VarioVisie and attempting to duplicate the success they had at the Kewastemere Music Festival into winning at [Name To Be Added]. Ready and hungry for the win, these boys bring the best of Variotan teen pop.

Their song, Pillen en Swag (Pills and Swag), tells a deep and connecting story of being in the nightclub and enjoying yourself. You and your squad are on point, slaying the dance floor and wooing the women and men into submission. Your secret? Pillen en Swag. Feel the heat of the beat as you grind your teeth and show some impressionable drunk tourists what partying with Variotans really means. You are the man, the legend, the person that could make the Sausage Section but decides not to so that others won't be too embarrassed to sign up after you.

 

Hete Henk - Kom Maar

hF4E4U5.jpg

The man, the legend, the only thing in the Pink Pony seeing more action than the bathrooms and dance floor. Henricus Kolewasser is a well-known face throughout the world, even if many of those that recognize him will not say so. A Sausage Section success story, Hete Henk has played in blockbusters such as Hete Henk and the Twenty-Two Midget Sailors, the Prison Parts Trilogy and Soldier Sixty-Nine: Torture is Fine. Recently seen more and more partying with Dina Diva, a situation made easy by the fact that his contract includes free drinks in the Pink Pony, Hete Henk is becoming one of the prime examples of the new style Variotan socialites and one to watch. Smart, hardworking and willing to pull strings to get somewhere. While he has no experience in the music business, he has managed to join VarioVisie as he represents the layer of Variota that is the guilty pleasure of everyone.

His song, Kom Maar, is an upbeat and fun song about being on vacation. Your wife has been turning older, wilting away while you remain in your prime, you remain the best man you can be. You just want some fun and who can blame you? No one can, everyone wants to have fun. And sure, you have a bi-curious side. Who doesn't? It's really the only reason to go to college anyway. You're sitting by the bar and that's when you hear the magic words, Kom Maar, that lead you into a night of wild and no strings attached fun with the boy of your dreams, none other than Hete Henk.

 

Fabuleuse Filo het Fuller - Hey Yo

iGOuAqD.png

Opper-Geen'raal Filomedes Jonkheere of the Propagatie en Morraalmagt is an iconic figure within Variota. Discovered while working a market stall selling fresh sausages, filling the sausage casings, Fabuleuse Filo has a long history within the Variotan music industry. One of the largest Leeffessang artists, he was invited by the Huisselikke Aanfals en Protektiemagt to fulfill the position of Opper-Geen'raal (Upper General) of the Propagatie en Morraalmagt in 1992 after his predecessor died. The man has remained one of the largest artists, taking a prominent position during the Pierraate Leeffesfestein, and while his hits have slowed somewhat down due to his duties, every person in Variota knows the lines of atleast one of his songs. His extravagant costumes, personality and stage presence have led Nasionale TeleSicht Variota to invite him to participate in VarioVisie.

His song, Hey Yo, is a fun but light song that does not pretend to be some deeper message, some morality that one should hold themselves to. Hey Yo is all about celebrating the looks, the vocals, the presence of its singer, Fabuleuse Filo. From telling you to take a good look to telling you about his great legs and buttocks, Hey Yo celebrates Filo and, when you sing it, celebrates you. Hey Yo empowers you to see the good in yourself, particularly the visual good. People aren't turning their heads to see you walk? Hey Yo them.

 


OOC explanation: All you have to do is send me a message (can be here through the messaging system, through TG on NS or through PM on Discord) listen your favorite as number 1, your meh-one as number 2 and the one you least like as number 3. Then I'll add all the votes up once the contest begins and boom, that's the winner.

    • The Verde Blockade
      To whom it may concern. As you may be aware, the Socialist Federation of Ahrana have recently launched a sizeable convoy of militarised ships along a route that will take them to Xara, a nation in the Mediargic Sea that Ahrana claims to control. As of late, growing tensions within the Canamo region have led the United States to become increasingly wary of the actions of the Socialist Federation, such as the formation of the Confederation of Independent Socialists, allowing an autonomous region controlled by Derthalen, and of course, succumbing to a questionable communist regime. With your great nation being a close ally and firm friend of the United States, we humbly ask of you to support us in preventing Ahrana from having their sinister way. I ask of you to enact a naval blockade in the waters of the Verde Sea, therefore preventing Ahrana from progressing towards their destination.

      It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Reverend Mother Hannah McKey. The Reverend Mother is the head of the Bene Gesserit faith, the person responsible for guiding our Sisterhood, its followers and mankind towards the goal of preparing for the next great cataclysm to face humanity. Additionally, the Reverend Mother is the Head of State of the Theocracy of Kaitaine and thus holds responsibility for our nation's path in the world. Over the next four days, our membership will undertake ancient rituals to determine the new Reverend Mother who shall inherit the responsibility of continuing Reverend Mother McKey's good work.

      The seas were calm on a November morning as the Giokton submarine I-23 cruised along the Tiauhai Sea. She was one of the several submarines dispatched under the top-secret Operation Barrage, launched after Giokton spies uncovered Andallan plans to further reinforce Liamchia, an Andallan territory on Giok Island. The day before, the SFS Teuvo Antonnen, a Kristian Steffenssen-class troop transport, departed Andalla for Liamtsia with 2,553 soldiers and crew on board...

    • Crisis in the Assemblée Nationale
      A little resume for those too lazy to read everything. A Société Ouverte (Mécra’s Party holding the absolute majority in the National Assembly) Deputé Saint-Étienne insulted his ex-political opponent from the 2015 elections for the Député seat during an interview with a journalist. Following this, the ex-opponent Monsieur Dumont asked for a duel, which took place in a forest with 5 witnesses and an arbiter. But on the 3rd round, Monsieur Saint-Étienne disrespected the rules of engagement, ending in an incident and his death. This launched an argument about the Société Ouverte Party’s honour. This made their adversaries and opponents enjoy the situation, to attack the Party along the Président du Conseil Mécra.

      Bureau 33, one of the scariest within Het Apparath. The Identity Replacement Department did exactly that, they replaced your identity if you didn't play along, if you were deemed a risk. Over the years, they had perfected the art. You didn't agree to their plans, to their advice, to their aid? No worries, enjoy the rest of your life. Until, you know, something gruesome happened like your caravan exploding with you in it, your motorcycle's front wheel suddenly getting a mind of its own while you're doing one-hundred-and-fifty kilometers on a strangely empty piece of highway or that stripper you hired for a private dance suddenly starts choking you with her amazingly muscular legs.

    • The Respublica Research Institute has published the final results of the opinion polls and compiled them over the last year in the following image:  
    • Sunset Sea Islands Ranked 11th Most Free Nation in the World The @Mauridiviahn Mundus Liber Freedom Index has ranked the Sunset Sea Islands as the eleventh most free nation in the world, scoring an impressive ninety-one out of one hundred points. The index analyses several properties of a given nature and ranks it on a scale from zero to one hundred in the categories of political freedom, personal/social freedom, economic freedom and freedom of the press and then calculates the average of those values to yield the final value. The Sunset Sea Islands scored 92 points for political freedom, 86 for personal freedom, 88 for economic freedom and 98 for freedom of the press. Prime Minister Theresa Tumbleweed expressed her satisfaction with these outstanding results. Furthermore, the Mundus Liber Freedom Index directly contradicts arguments by opponents of the Synapse System who state that the surveillance system infringes on their rights severely. The Index furthermore confirms the high levels of democratic participation the Sunset Sea Islandian citizens enjoy and that our media are amongst the freest in the world. The penalty in economic freedom results of the nationalisation of essential services and internet providers. The Mundus Liber Freedom Index is led by @Variota , known far and wide for its abundant freedoms, @Iverica on second and @Prymont on third place. Construction Sites Turn Into Melting Pots of Cultures According to the newest data from the construction sites in Tenma and Manamana, the multiculturality of the workforce is growing more and more diverse. Whilst the construction workers in Tenma mostly consist of native Sunset Sea Islandians and immigrants from the member states of the UBPSSIF, Futanaria, Free Dobby, Flups, Truly, Phync and Cynph, the construction site in Manamana continues to attract workers from all over the tricontinental area. Census reports show a steady increase of international friendships forming, marriages being sealed and children from all participating nations growing up and going to schools together. Occasional brawls break out between drunk workers after their shifts, nevertheless, the construction site turned into a true melting pot of cultures. Manamana City, which now houses seven and a half thousand workers, now is probably the most culturally diverse place in the whole world, where citizens of the UBPSSIF member states, including the Sunset Sea Islands, @Synturia , @Mauridiviah , @Little Flau , @Andalla and @Asgeirria live together in harmony. Solar Catamaran Ferries to Transport Tourists The summer season has started throughout the northern hemisphere. The Sunset Sea Islands have used this occasion to increase their spending in the tourism industry to both attract more foreign visitor to our nation and to improve our reputation overseas. One of the measures of these investments was the purchase of a fleet of several decades of small, solar-powered catamaran ferries. These sleek, eco-friendly, emission-neutral vehicles now act as shuttles between the major coastal cities of the Sunset Sea Islands. Tourists can now enjoy a day at the beach in Sunset City and then take a high-speed ferry back to their hotel in Esperanza, Porto Libertad or the Utopia Resort City without feeling the guilt of endangering the environment by taking other means of transportation. The government plans on investing more in solar-powered ferries of small, medium and large form factors to replace outdated ships and to relieve stress put on the environment by cars or planes. The nation has benefited from the inland sea for centuries since it made trade and communication between the major settlements easier. The new catamaran initiative builds upon this foundation to foster the tourism industry and to give tourists a new pleasant and eco-friendly attraction to experience during their vacation in the Sunset Sea Islands. Although the Sunset Sea Islands are a tropical tourist paradise all year round, tourism numbers increase when summer begins in the northern hemisphere, as that's where most of Eurth's population is concentrated.

      @Sunset Sea Islands, 20.05.2018 To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand @Ratopia. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of international relations most of the jokes will go over a typical roleplayer's head. There's also Rat's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Ratopia truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rat's existential catchphrase "Cabbages are funny," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Ratopia's genius wit unfolds itself on their message boards. What fools.. how I pity them. 😹
