  1. [Pax Eurthica] War always seems to be very cool, and most of the “big” nations try to get in on the act as often as possible – if not outright war, then certainly sabre rattling and posturing. Of the nations that are active at the moment, I think Oyus might be one of the few that hasn't been involved in anything like that.
  2. [Big Stick Dick] Fulgistan. Whilst he's unlikely to declare war at the drop of a hat, his meddlesome Commies certainly seem to get involved in most conflicts.
  3. [The Pushitzer Prize] I've enjoyed the news thread of Machina Haruspex, but perhaps I just like shiny graphics.
  4. [Bron Urgundy Award] Probably the namesake of the award himself, as done by Orioni. Likely the clearest contender, as it is the only one consistently written to be funny.
  5. [Fully-Diplomatic] Diplomatic events have tailed off in Eurth as of late – I think it can often be difficult to sustain everyone's interest at times. This is certainly a sad thing, although I myself have never felt the drive to host one. Galahinda's was the last one to get a lot of attention, so I will go for his party
  6. [Business Cat] Perhaps not a “trade event”, but Andalla's rolling stock company is at least a departure from the usual arms dealers and aircraft manufacturers.
  7. [Moving the Goalpost] The Aurelian Cup of Oyus was quite interesting.
  8. [Leading the Green Scene] This is cheating somewhat, as it started in the last days of 2018, but I think the Laren Agrement of Morheim. Quite a few nations have signed up to it so far, so it seems to be making a positive impact.
  9. [Ms/Mr Congeniality] King Aidan I. I went for him last time and I think he remains the most likeable of all of the characters that we have seen in the RPs here.
  10. [Lex Loathor] At the moment, it must be the Emperor of Machina Haruspex, Ji'Mar – sadly, he is merely the latest in a long line of heads of state whose nations have undertaken an act of ethnic cleansing or genocide.
  11. [Notable N00b] Without a doubt, Creaturae. I realise that he's still rethinking his actual nation but there have been few people who have added as much to the region as he has with his climate map. It has been somewhat controversial but it has definitely had a lot of work put into it!

  1. [Pax Eurthica] - Um, me obviously. You don't see me waving any kind of stick at you, do you?
  2. [Big Stick Dick] - I nominate myself again because I think paradoxes are hilarious and I should definitely win this one because it makes the least sense!
  3. [The Pushitzer Prize] - Um, hello? Me, again. The Yulaa Spectator obviously has been (not) consistent in quality and length.
  4. [Bron Urgundy] - See above we definitely don't strike a serious tone.
  5. [Fully Diplomatic] - Me, again.
  6. [Business Cat] - Does developing a delightful city, Majesty Bay count? Because I think it does. Sign me up, chief.
  7. [Moving the Goalposts] - The Aurelia Cup by mememememememememe
  8. [Leading the Green Scene] - Where is it not green in Oyus? The ocean!
  9. [Mr/Ms Congeniality] - Eka Lam is by far the most likable. She is so nice and generous and clearly cares for others.
  10. [Lex Loathor] - Do you hate peace? Then you hate Eka Lam. Going for another win here.
  11. [Notable N00b] - I joined last year with little time to prove myself, and I think I have proven myself so fair is fair, it's me again.

Joking. Just joking. Maybe.

  1. [Pax Eurthica] - There can be many interpretations as to what constitutes as peace loving and for that reason we are using the gray, questionable interpretation to nominate Galahinda. The only hostility you'll see from them is the dress from the newest Galahindan seamstress. I mean did you see the [fashion term] on that piece?
  2. [Big Stick Dick] - While without a doubt Derthalen is the easiest answer canonically speaking, I like to nominate those that have shown a semblance of activity (for obvious reasons he doesn't fit the bill) so given the events in the Occident, Machina Haruspex is my choice. Sure, those meddling Communists from Fulgistan are pretty meddling, but at least it sin't a complete slaughter, right?
  3. [The Pushitzer Prize] - I think Announcements from Arhomaneia shows clear dedication and effort on Tag's part especially considering the shifting use of news providers to deliver the news and makes for interesting reads. Not only that, but the guideline is giving realistic news coverage and it definitely shows the shades of coverage you can see across a country's news providers.
  4. [Bron Urgundy] - The namesake is pretty funny so, I'm going to add doubly to Tag's nomination by nominating him myself.
  5. [Fully Diplomatic] - LAANN's Foundation by Metzlitlalio seems like one worthy of note as it begins to come together and unites nations in a way you don't see very often.
  6. [Business Cat] - Perhaps I'm bending the way the guideline should be interpreted but arguably offering to purchase a Ceris nation should have some meaning and impact on trade one way or another. That's why my longshot, gray area nomination goes to Variota for offering to purchase Zaspa, currently Under Contract.
  7. [Moving the Goalposts] - To be honest with you, unless someone can link me a non-Rihan sports thread from this calendar year, the only other sports thread aside from my own redo of the Aurelia Cup is the one written by our favorite Catholic island nation, Salvia for Six Nations Rugby. Hopefully this will be a category with plenty of nominations next year, or ones I completely neglected to remember from this year.
  8. [Leading the Green Scene] - I'm unable to name one at the moment. This could change.
  9. [Mr/Ms Congeniality] - Dina Diva. The end. No answers necessary.
  10. [Lex Loathor] - Yiu Amastacia. way to continue running over poor people while throwing extravagant parties (that we totally didn't attend)
  11. [Notable N00b] - I can't believe it took me as long as it did for me to come to this conclusion, but for me the choice is clear: Metzlitlalio. Metz has thrown a lot of effort into developing his nation in this region and it is astonishing the dedication he has put into it, especially constructing a conlang for his nation, something that can be very agonizing for most to do. Honorable mention to Creaturae, who undertook the difficult task of reworking the Eurth climate map and has made many revisions to satisfy the many tastes and preferences (understandably so) of those within Eurth.

I'll be honest, some of these were more clear cut than others. Hopefully this next year I will have the problem of not being able to pick one out because there are too many instead of not enough - I could also just not be paying a whole fudging lot of attention.

  1. [Pax Eurthica] - The Cussian Humanitarian Coalition.
  2. [Big Stick Dick] - In my neck of the woods, the only nation I've actually seen misbehave is Haruspex.
  3. [The Pushitzer Prize] - Loads of choices in the good category. I can't choose so let me just nominate Salvia, Sfakia, Tagmatium and Gallambria.
  4. [Bron Urgundy] - #BoycotBron and his fake news.
  5. [Fully Diplomatic] -  Asta L'Vasqqa by Iverica.
  6. [Business Cat] - The SSI push for a fully technocratic regime combined with Elegy, with all its benefits and flaws. As explained in The Implant.
  7. [Moving the Goalposts] - The Bogd Gioro Olympics.
  8. [Leading the Green Scene] - The Laren Environmental Conference by Morheim was interesting. Posted December 30th of last year, but I'll nominate anyway since most of the story played out in 2019.
  9. [Mr/Ms Congeniality] - I rather liked Matteo Arlotta and his search for the Aresi Stone.
  10. [Lex Loathor] - Newly crowned emperor Ji'mar of Haruspex (The Dragon Takes Flight, Imperium News Night).
  11. [Notable N00b] - Loads of new members deserve to be nominated. Some nice people who joined us in 2019 are Galahinda, Metztli, Creaturae, and Eulycea. And Oyus who joined in November 2018.
