  1. The wurld Census, the wurld's leading international bureau of testing and measurement, is pleased to announce the latest series of additions and modifications! New Scales /images/trophies/patriotism-100.pngPatriotism All citizens love their nations, of course. If they have democracy, they love that. If they don't, they appreciate the firm leadership. Every nation is great, in the eyes of its citizens. Still, some are more fervent about their love of country than others, and the wurld Census is now tracking exactly how disturbingly fervent it is. /images/trophies/foodquality-100.pngFood Q

  3. This post comes courtesy of Senior Issues Editor The Free Joy State. The Issues Team know that every corner of NationStates is bursting with people who are full of interesting and entertaining ideas. Now, your chance to show us your stuff is an annual event. We are very excited to announce our "One Chance Only Issues Contest". The top ten finalists will be featured in a News post, immortalising your name (think of the bragging rights), and will guarantee your submission will get into the game. These contests can also help us spot potential future editors -- so, if you want to show us
  4. You might notice your region is looking a little spiffier than usual. If so, that's because your regional officers have discovered new customization options, including the ability to upload a regional banner. They're also probably all like, "Huh, I can actually preview changes first before making them live. That's not bad." And they're right. It is not bad. View the full article
  5. If there's one thing I learned from this experience, it's: Wow, there really are a lot of nations. It's one thing to know there are a quarter of a million, but it's another to click through them one randomly-generated pair at a time. Congratulations to objectively the Best Nation In the wurld! It is: @@JGConfig::nice_name("farnhamia", 4)@@ Final Leaderboard Over the 28 hours of the event, 829,257 votes were cast, so you know it's correct. Thanks to everyone who participated: I hope it was a mildly interesting journey through the breadth and depth of nations we have here on NationStates,
  6. For a long time, people have wanted to know how good their nation is. They have turned to us, and we have said, "What is 'good,' anyway? A strong economy? Kind citizenry? Rich culture? An effective military? You can't boil down a whole nation to a single variable. That's why we have so many wurld Census ranking scales." And they have nodded and thanked us for nothing. So let's fix that! Today, for the next 28 hours only, we will answer the question: Which is the Best Nation in the wurld? Start Here: Best Nation in the wurld It's simple: You get shown two nations and you click th
  7. We have a little scheduled downtime coming up, in order to perform some server upgrades. I know, I know; nobody has downtime any more in today's fast-moving cloud environment with microservices and hot failovers and whatnot. But NationStates doesn't have those, because it's still running on a PC I have underneath my desk. Not really. That was a joke. Mostly. Both gameside and the forum will be unavailable for about three hours starting 10:45pm Thursday Wednesday Pacific Time (after the major daily update). Click here for your local time.

  9. To those who thought it was in poor taste to have a zombie uprising during a real pandemic, I say: You make an excellent point. That's very reasonable. No-one wants to watch a horror movie when they're already living in one. But perhaps there's no better time to shoot Cure Missiles at zombie hordes than during a health crisis. It is a time when regions either work together and survive, or else sink in communal apathy. This year, despite extra challenges from an unknown start time and two surprise interventions, many regions again proved themselves to be vigilant and effective, successfull
  10. Wow! Okay! Whoever just hit my location with a Cure Missile, much thanks. I'm feeling a lot better now. Please disregard everything I said about not taking the threat seriously. That was zombie talk. We absolutely have to fight this thing until the end. Which is soon: Zombie apocalypse ends in: View the full article
  11. I didn't want to have to do this. But I'm looking around and I'm seeing a lot of nations who have learned to live positively alongside the zombies being locked out of other regions due to emergency border controls. This is very unfair to zombie-tolerant nations. During past Apocalypses, I've always said that border controls are a matter for individual regions. But this needless fear and division hurts us all. Therefore, I am hereby striking down all Emergency Apocalypse Border Controls. Regions who had implented such controls will find that they are now removed. You can reimpose th
  12. I have received scattered reports of roving bands of undead feasting upon the living. To which I say: Thank you, and we'll deal with those as soon as we can. The real problem I want to discuss, though, is how some regions have closed their borders, and nations have redirected their resources into researching a "cure," or even exterminating zombie hordes with military force. I can't emphasize enough that this is a complete over-reaction. It is, in fact, this kind of needless fear that stokes division and prevents us from returning quickly to a regular lifestyle. As such, I am hereby takin
  13. A few minutes ago, we inadvertently displayed some information relating to the previous Zombie Apocalypse, which occurred in 2019. This was due to a technical error and definitely not because of fresh stirrings in the graves of the undead. That's for sure. We have this thing locked down. It's not going anywhere. We are 100% prepared. So please continue to relax and go about your normal business. View the full article
  14. Some people seem to think there will be a zombie apocalypse around the end of October, with the undead rising from their graves to unleash a global wave of devastation, just because that's what's happened for the last eight years in row. To these people, I say: Relax! This year, we are fully prepared to contain and control the situation. So I'm pleased to say that there will be no need to panic, close your borders, or anything else. Just keep going about your business. There is a small chance that you may spot a few isolated zombies here and there. We can't completely rule that out.
