sleeping on the job as a few factories had been mainly designated in arms manufacturing for the Japanese Ara Manufacturing Enterprises such as BlackSteel. They received an order of 500 Kuroko Exoskeleton-S147 from the nation of Frellor. This was made quick and easy with the few manufacturing factories they owned as well as storage for selling. This was shipped and delivered to Frellor within a few days of making.
They then received another order asking for 60,000 of the same Exoskeleton from Cymiopolis and then a few hours later 600,000 exoskeletons from Ventus! This would make them faint to the floor as they pay 30 Trillion credits to buy these suits. And a mass selling has caused a spike in the economy within the private sectors.
The squadrons of ARC-170s and Y-Wings descended into the planet, specifically into Kunkengan airspace. “Alright Red Squadron, you have your orders. Take out any Kunkengan military installments, but only military, got that?”
“Understood Red Leader.”
“Also keep an eye out for enemy fighters. We’re here to back up Gold Squadron if anyone shows up. Just remember, hit your targets and get outta there. We want to be gone by the time the enemy mobilizes.”
The two squadrons of ships moved in formation as they moved what could’ve been the Kunkengan capital. As HQ said, no civilian casualties. The large airfield came up and the Y-Wings began their bombing run, dropping their payloads and pulling up as the building, along with many ships were decimated completely.
“This is Gold Three. Storage facility coming up, I’m making my run.” Another Y-Wing dropped its payload before rendezvousing with the others.
“You think they’re gonna be pretty pissed after this?”
“Damn right they will. Nobody messes with my chancellor!”
“Cut the chatter! We’re all done here so let’s get out of here.” The two squadrons quickly headed back to space towards the Endurance carrier.
After passage of GAR #41, the roles and responsibilities of committee chairs has slightly changed (along with election terms and elections). You should read through this information below...
Section Four: Committee Chairs
A Committee Chair shall be elected by the General Assembly upon the formation of a committee, or the termination of a term, for a term of two months beginning on the 20th of each month described in § 4(I)(A). Should a vacancy arise in a Chairship mid-term, a special election shall be held to designate a Chair to serve the remainder of the term, unless the normal election cycle provides for an election within the following 14 days.
Each Chair shall be elected (under normal circumstances) every January, March, May, July, September, and November.
For said elections, a poll shall run for 48 hours beginning no earlier than the 4th and no later than the 16th for of each month in which they are elected. The first poll shall be conducted 5 days after passage of this resolution.
The President of the General Assembly shall oversee all Chair elections validate or invalidate their votes as necessary.
If a Chair is elected upon the formation of a committee, a former Chair's midterm abdication, or they are one of the first Chairs (described in clause (A)), they shall serve until – whichever comes first – January, March, May, July, September, or November, barring the dissolution of the committee. Then, a new Chair shall be elected within normal procedure.
A Committee Chair may set the agenda for their committee, determine any necessary bylaws, oversee all committee documents, and act as the primary liaison between their committee and other government branches or the President. A Committee Chair cannot concurrently maintain one of the following positions:
President of the General Assembly;
The leader of another Government branch not contemplated by this resolution; or
Chair of another Committee.
The term for the Committee Chair shall begin on the same day as the formation of a committee. A Committee Chair may serve as many terms as they see fit. If a previous Chair has abdicated, another Chair shall be promptly chosen to take their place.
A committee Chair may grant and revoke Speaking Rights on their committee to any person who is not a current member of said committee.
A Chair shall act as a tie-breaking vote in cases where there is a tie in any vote conducted by their respective Committee, even if that tie includes their initial vote.
A candidate that wishes to chair a committee must meet the following eligibility requirements:
Maintains New West Indies citizenship;
Has not been convicted of a Felony or High Crime, nor has been convicted of any crime within two months of running for Chair; and
Has joined the Discord server dedicated to General Assembly Committees in order to facilitate the happening of the committees and to ensure transparency of the committee.
Should a candidate run for the Chair of a Committee and later be found to have falsified their eligibility, the candidate has committed General Fraud.
Section Five: Membership
A committee shall comprise of all citizens who apply for membership, provided they are not barred by law from sitting in that committee.
It shall be the responsibility of the Chairs of each committee to accept or reject applications for membership in their committee and inform the President of the General Assembly when an application is rejected..
A decision to reject a citizen from membership on an Assembly Committee may be overruled by the President of the General Assembly.
A citizen may serve on multiple committees if desired.
No citizen shall serve on a committee wherein they assist in the oversight of a role that they serve or when there is a substantial conflict of interest. For example, an Executive employee may not serve on the Executive Compliance Committee.
A committee shall not go below one member. If a committee does not meet the minimum membership, official operations shall cease, and the President shall decide whether to dissolve or maintain the committee (excluding Judiciary and Executive Compliance).
From now on, those running for Committee Chairmanship should send their candidacy to Celestiam if they do not announce it publicly is the Secretariat will be handling the elections. Anyone who previously sent me a notice that they were running has already been given to Celest.
Additionally, ask that citizens consider running for Committee Chair or to join a committee in general. This allows the citizens of the NWI a chance to be introduced to the NWI Government and political process, hold those elected/appointed to office responsible for their actions, and can even get you some commendations through governmental work. If you are interested in being in a committee, reach out to Reno Sherrifs Department (Executive Compliance Committee) or to Subadent (Judiciary Committee) to apply for membership. If you want to run for the Chairmanship of a committee, send your candidacy to the Secretariat.
Due to a low number of submissions (3 to be exact), the NWI Colonial Flag competition submission period has been extended until Sunday July 19. Please keep in mind that this theme won the opinion poll by a la salisse and the DIA expected a better turnout. Voting will take place on July 20th
Chancellor Snow had arrived via shuttle to the new Star Destroyer, christened the Maverick-class. It was currently the largest ship in the Tepublic Navy, dwarfing even the Praetor. Given a tour of the ship by members of VSI, she couldn’t help but be impressed.
“The firepower of this ship alone could take out small fleets,” the VSI member said. “And with its shields and armor, it’s almost impenetrable.”
“Really? How many Praetors do you believe it would take to take down a ship this size?” Lysithea asked. She always did have a soft spot for the Praetor.
“Honestly, probably at least three. Anything smaller, except maybe the Nebula, wouldn’t stand a chance.”
“Hmm. A very impressive ship. Does it have a name yet?”
“Ah yes, we wanted to get your input on it first, but we thought to name her the Chancellor Shadow, in remembrance of His Grace.”
Lysithea was quiet for a moment, moved by the idea of havsing a ship named after her friend and predecessor. “Yes, I think that’s a fitting name. Is this ship ready to be deployed?”
“Yes, she has a full crew and ready to embark.”
“Good. The Minister of the Navy wants one each as a flagship for each fleet. How long will That take?”
“As many of the ships are currently in development, they should be ready within the next few months.”
“Good.” Soon the Maverick would be able to run its own field test against the Kunkengans. She smiled slightly at the thought of them quaking in their boots when they finally get to meet this ship head on.

Introduction and Origins
The world is in chaos. After increasing stability and prosperity for much of the world in the early parts of the 21st century, uncertainty and inequalities began to grow rapidly. Resources became scarcer, and nations began to disregard sovereignty and international law. The nations of the world would once again regress to the state of world war.
Not many nations of years' past would survive the onslaught. Some say it was an act of divine will, that God was to reset the earth so that humanity may start again; others say it was the product of a breakdown in order and respect for government institutions; still more say it was the selfishness and immaturity of humanity that led to this suffering.
Nevertheless, the war finally ended sometime around 2045, and there were not many to pick up the pieces. However, there was still hope. Survivors began to build up their own communities, cultivate the land once more, and construct new governments. Now was a perfect time to start over, to harness a blank slate. The slate would be filled with horrors and uncertainty, yet also creativity and opportunity.
A new world order is about to begin, and the new nations of the earth will seek to adapt and prosper, lest they perish into obscurity.
Below is a list of all possible events that could occur in the roleplaying world of the New West Indies. All of these events are determined by the NWI Roleplay Committee. These events will effect the general direction of roleplay in some way, and we highly implore nations to keep them in mind when writing their roleplay posts.
Events are determined in one of two ways. The first way is through pre-established roleplay, which means that an event could be decided by a roleplay post written by a member of the New West Indies. If said post can garner a reaction from the international community, it will be announced as an event. How long the event lasts is determined by the nation(s) in question.
The second way is through the Roleplay Committee itself. Certain events that affect no specified nations will be announced at random (such as recessions) OR at a pre-designated time (such as seasonal events). If the committee decides an event must start within a particular nation, the Committee will ask that nation for permission. For example, the committee may ask a nation on a fault line to roleplay an Earthquake. If the nation agrees, it will be counted as an event, and if the nation disagrees, the event will not be counted.
As previously stated, events of this nature can occur at random or in specific time ranges.
PLEASE do not ask the committee for certain events to begin.
Entire weeks or months where potential natural disasters can occur, such as Hurricanes or Wildfires. It generally affects certain areas in the world. Everyone hold your breath! Keep in mind that these are NEVER determined by roleplayers. HURRICANES, DROUGHT, MONSOONS, AND WILDFIRES can only be roleplayed in these timeframes, as they are the only times it'll really make sense.
Dry Season/ Drought Season
A time in which there is low perciptation due to the movement of the tropical rainbelt AWAY from the hemisphere in question. This is particularly noticeable in the tropics. Depending on the general climate and development of a region, this could lead to sever drought and lack of water.
A time in which there is high perciptation due to the movement of the tropical rainbelt INTO the hemisphere in question. This is particularly noticeable in the tropics. Depending on the general climate, elevation, and development of a region, this could lead to excess water and tunderstorms.
American Atlantic: June-Nov.
American Pacific: May-Nov.
Indian Ocean (E.Africa/W.Australia): Oct.-May
Indian Ocean (S.Asia): April-Dec.
E.Asia Pacific: April-Jan.
Oceania Pacific: Oct.-May
Time of the year in which there is an increased chance of a Cyclone or Hurricane occurring in a certain region. Hurricanes typically form and dissipate in the ocean, but certain hurricanes have the potential to touch down on land depending on it's path.
SE.Asia-Australia Monsoon: Dec.-March
N.America Monsoon (Southwest U.S.): July-Sep.
S.Asia/ Indian Subcontinent: June-Sep.
W.Africa Monsoon: June-Sep.
E.Africa Monsoon: Jan.-March
Monsoon seasons are periods of large scale seasonal and wind circulation change, that can not only cause heavy rainfall, but also dry spells depending on the time. Harsh thunderstorms, followed by dust storms are common.
While generally occurring during summer months, wildfire season can stretch for random amounts of time.
Areas with dry hot climates can experience naturally occurring wildfires during summer months. These fires can rage for days, weeks and even months depending on severity. Typically occurs in areas with dry grasses, trees and other plant life. Although a natural occurrence, the climate change caused by earlier nation's pollution often means fires will last longer.
N A T U R A L D I S A S T E R S
From earth-shattering earthquakes to hurricanes that tear houses apart, natural disasters have shown themselves to be destructive forces that should not be underestimated under any circumstances, lest you want widespread tragedy and death.
Strong, windy storms that typically touch down during summer months. Nations within/ containing a "Tornado ally" should be wary of these miserable, destructive storms.
Occurs in: North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, East Asia, Himalays, East Australia and Oceania, West Australia and Oceania, South American Pampas
Hurricane/ Cyclone/ Typhoon
A massive, moving storm that can ravage coastlines and even inland cities with their strong winds and massive amounts of rain. Hurricanes can last months without faltering, causing massive amounts of damage. It can lead to floods, and even create Tornadoes upon landfall.
Occurs in: North America, Central America, Caribbean, South East Asia, South Asia, Polynesia, Arabian Peninsula
The result of colliding fault lines. Nations along these fault lines better be wary, as earthquakes can occur at any time, at any level of severity. If a nation is not properly prepared, they can level entire buildings. In some cases, earthquakes can cause Tsunamis. Earthquakes can also be caused by anything that happens to cause a disturbance in a faultline, such as a big explosion.
Occurs in: Nations whos borders contain a fault line
Ice Storn/ Blizzard
Occurs in areas that experience incredibly cold weather in the winter months. It is incredibly dangerous for people to be out during a blizzard, and transportation becomes nearly impossible. Blizzards can freeze important machinery, summon hail, and even strand people.
Occurs in: Nations with high elevation, and/or significant distance from the equator.
Forest Fires/ Wild Fires
Happens typically in nations with dry climates. While a natural process that's actually good for the enviroment, sometimes they can get out of hand, and can cause damage to human settlements. It's advised that they be controlled and not put out.
Occurs in: Any nation with dense forests, coupled with poor wood resourcing practices or dry climates.
An event of prolonged shortages in the water supply, whether atmospheric, surface water or groundwater. May cause crop shortages and economic downturn as a result.
Occurs: Areas susceptible to low amounts of rainfall
Flood: an overflowing of a large amount of water beyond its normal confines, especially over what is normally dry land. Nations who experience cold snowy winters should be weary with river settlements during the spring thaw. May also occur as a consequence of tsunamis and hurricanes for coastal cities
Occurs in: Everywhere
A violent or slow ejection of molten rock, ash and steam pour through a vent in the earth's crust that leads to the destruction of land and structures that are in the path of lava flows and rain. Large amounts of ash in the right wind stream may disturb air travel.
Occurs: Fault lines with volcanic activity (Pacific Ring of Fire, certain Mediterranean islands, Iceland, etc.)
While normally innocuous, these grasshoppers enter their swarming phase under the perfect conditions of a drought followed by rapid vegetation growth. These dense swarms stretching multiple kilometers lead to destruction of crops
Occurs: Area with rainy and dry seasons
A series of waves in a water body caused by the displacement of a large volume of water, generally in an ocean or a large lake. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other underwater explosions (including detonations, landslides, glacier calvings, meteorite impacts and other disturbances) above or below water all have the potential to generate a tsunami.
Occurs: Regions near coastal fault lines
H U M A N - M A D E D I S A S T E R S
Humans are often times very destructive. Whether it be accidental or "accidentally on purpose," we're oftentimes behind the destruction and disasters that affect the places we call home.
Humans damage the environment in lots of ways. Certain nations to a better job at managing it than others. But if the enviroment suffers massive amounts of damage, without much of an attempt to manage or preserve it, it's considered Enviromental Degredgation, which can harm everyone in some way.
An intentional event of mass casualty. Whether it be protests gone wrong, governments killing their own citizens, deadly riots, or mass murder. Massacres are considered Terrorist attacks when it has a political motive, and aims to promote a specific rhetoric.
National, Regional, Global
Accidents include everything from Plane Crashes, Nuclear Meltdowns, Building Collapse, Space Shuttle explosions, Oil Spills, etc. These events are usually case by case, and specific in nature. But their scale can vary heavily depending on who/ what is affected.
D I S E A S E
Diease is something we all have to deal with in real life, so no doubt it can occur here as well. All the Medicaid in the world might not be able to prevent a sudden outbreak.
A generally infectious disease that has spread within a particular region WITHIN one country. This is a cause for concern, and can turn into a Pandemic if it grows too fast.
A disease that has already spread across an entire nation, and has reached other countries. Typically requires a global effort to stop. This will cost billions in medical care, and can potentially kill thousands or even millions if the disease is deadly enough.
P O L I T I C A L E V E N T S
The world has made sure that actions by a few prominent political or military figures ripple into big events that could very well change a nation, or continent, forever.
A nation gains a new leader via democratic processes.
When civilians revolt in protest of their government(s) in order to protest a policy, government system, or leader. These can be peaceful or violent, but typically only affect the nation in question. Can lead to political coups.
A nation gains a new leader via civilian overthrow.
Death of a Leader
A leader of a nation passes away due to any cause. This can often times cause reactions from the International community, especially from the nation's allies. But ultimately the nation in question is the most affected.
Terrorist attacks are violent, intentional attacks on civilians or property, committed by a an individual, group, or organization in pursuit of political aims. Usually affects particular nations and regions, but can cause an international response if neccessary.
National, Regional, Global
When a nation attempts to aggressively expand it's territory, wealth, or influence via aggressive tactics. Generally occurs due to nationalistic ideologies and strongman leaders. Will almost always result in a negative reaction regardless of who it affects.
When two or more nations engage in armed combat for various reasons and interests. If a war is big enough, it can affect all nations in some way or another, including neutral ones. War can cause a variety of events to occur depending on the situation.
S P O R T I N G E V E N T S
Being everyone's pastime even during the days where we inhabited in caves, sports are still going strong with hundreds of millions engaging in this beautiful art daily. These events are determined by our soon-to-be sports dispatch (WIP).
E C O N O M I C E V E N T S
Thousands of business-suited people across the world eagerly watch the line of the stocks market and rejoice if it is going up, and scream if it is going down. The world of Economics is so diverse, everything can affect it; Likewise, it can affect everything.
National, Regional, Global
When two or more nations/unions start adding trade barriers/tariffs, and continue to escalate them.
National, Regional, Global
When prices for basic goods become so high, that they become unobtainable for most people. Generally caused by decrease in currency values.
National, Regional, Global
The opposite of Inflation, in which prices for basic goods drop tremendously, which leads to lower customer spending. Companies will generally attempt to slow deflation by slowing production, which leads to layoffs and salary reductions
Can be caused by a wide range of situations. When a large amount of people working in a particular industry/ particular nation lose their jobs. This can be catrostophic depending on the scale, as not only will their be less work getting done (production and services), but less money flowing in and out of the economy as well.
A period of time in which a nation or region experiences higher GDP, low employment, rising asset prices, and high inflation rates. Can occur for a numerous amount of reasons.
A shortlived boom in economy during times of war. Caused by increase in manufacturing and even trade between nations. Though these affects can wear off shortly after war. For nations who lose a war however, post-war economy can be awful.

Kiyomi: "M-My mother. . ." she says being phased out, she then sighs, "Please have a seat around the Kotatsu, your legs and feet will be nice and cozy under it, I even enjoy it myself," she says with a warm smile, though that fades as they took their seats and she began to retell her mother's tale.
Kiyomi: "My mother was like, in no doubt, a sitting duck. She wasn't the best empress as her incident left her crippled and had a regent took over who was corrupted by corporation in Japan. Hence why when my mother passed away. The military couped the Regent Government because he refused to give back power to the Imperial Family and so he was shot, along with the rest of his government jailed or shot along with him," she explains, stretching her leg out, "Anyways I prefer my rule to not be like my mothers, I wish to be something better than be one of those Imperial Monarchs who copies off the styles of their ancestors and try to make things better in different ways," she replied.
Kiyomi: "I don't mind purchasing a few food products from your nation as we do need it to lower the cost of food prices and I also thank you for the positive comments about the future of my rule and I guess draconian laws can bring a bit of happiness and prosperity in the future. There aren't too many nations that have an absolute monarch. Japan is an absolute monarchy however the monarchs are elected by the royal court by the people. However I didn't get elected by the Royal Court. I was put into this position by the military with the people's support as well. I don't write the laws however, my ministers usually do it. Though if I do I would have to have an editor next to me to check the wording of the legislations," she would explain.
Kiyomi: "Ah so your nation had a civil war after WWIII? Why though? And perhaps while you are at it, what exactly is High Charity II? I never heard of it really," she asked.
The numbers of Lynxes has increased alot over the past years. The Nordic lynx has spread from eastern NSE to southwestern Sweden. The Nordic lynx is the smallest species of lynx but they can still be dangerous. This may be a future problem. Many people belive that the only solution to this is that it turns legal to shoot them but the government denies. The Nordic lynx might spread to other countries but NSE is trying to stop that from happening.
We are called today to elect one of the salient positions for the oversight of our government. As there is only one candidate, this election will be an approval poll. If Reno Sheriffs Department gets the majority of votes, they will be elected. If not, nominations will reopen.
You have 48 hours to cast your vote. All (and only) citizens may vote.
Judicial Committee Chair Election
Due to the absence of at least one valid candidate, standing for this position shall remain open for an additional 48 hours until the Saturday 18th of July.
Momo bowed, sitting on the opposite side of Kiyomi around the Kotatsu. She extended her perfect legs and feet under it. She felt a surge of happiness from this, as this reminded her deeply of her former home in Mito. Sitting at a kotatsu similar to this, eating a rice bowl and watching programming that her parents had selected for the night. Perhaps, the only thing that she truly was missing was a rice bowl and a television where she would watch instructional videos on one of the three forms of martial arts that she had all but mastered. Sitting back at one of these made her feel happier still. She even smiled a bit, as it had felt like she never left home. Momo was sure to be enjoying every miniscule detail of her visit back home.
"Well, Your Celestial Excellency, i personally have no ill will or neagtive remarks of Celestial Empress Ayumi. Then again, with that said, the few times i had the opportunity to be in her Celestial majesty, I was but a mere civilian. A mere nobody amongst her people. Again, all due respect Your Celestial Excellency, I personally think that it is counter intuitive to dwell on the negative aspects of your past, or your mother's past. Rather, I like to think of it in a different way, I like to think that it is because of your mother that you are here today. If it wasnt for her, you would not necessarily, be here, and I would never have had the opportunity to be generously invited by you to visit. Policies aside, i think that personally your mother was an honourable lady." She started
"Your Celestial Excellency, all i need is the amount of produce you will need and for how long. We will ensure that it is followed to the letter, the number, and even to the exact stroke of the Kanji characters of our language. We are wholly committed to making your life easy. As easy as possible, and furthermore, committed to showing you that we value the possibility of forming an alliance that nothing could possibly dream of breaking. I am genuinely committed to helping the leader and the people of the land i call my home."
"High Charity II? Well, lets see, what is the best way to explain it? Other than she is a massive planetoid that is classified in our records as a superheavy starship. Capable of slipspace travel to ensure her safety, and glassing beams that vaporize most that it touches and turns the surface into uninhabitable glass, only reversible through extensive terraforming. thoguh while she is a defensive and offensive weapon, she is also a holy city, whose majesty baffles even me. Her beauty is effortless and absolutely incredible. We built it in the hopes that we might be able to house our allies on it, and have a hegemony of different peoples and cultures united under the unbreakable bonds of our alliances. Perhaps, if you wish to put it on your agenda for today, i can arrange to have you visit our holy city." Momo said finishing, scrunching her toes.
The Cymiopolitan Space Force has put forth a contract for the construction of 16 Assault Supercarriers (i.e. supercarriers with the assault capabilities of a superdreadnought). We call upon the military space vessel manufacturers of the world to aid us in fulfilling this contract. These would include:
The winning design will be chosen by means of an optimization of best functionality, price and aesthetic. Designs are to be telegrammed to the CSF HQ in Septininsular City on Callisto. May the best design win.
It was getting dark outside. Vasiliy Kalinin looked at the window from Padishah-Colonel Ostrog. He grew up in ranks quick, so he didn't get used to clean air and park avenues of Closed City, but Minister of Production and Labor can't show feelings when his subordinates are near. -Read it again, Oleg -To Alexios Melissinos, Ambassador of Most Serene Republic Uboy is known for high quality and yet affordable military ships. We value war as you value money, so I hope that our two mighty nations will come to agreement on the ship tender you mentioned. Although Uboy is skeptical about market economy, advantages of our society are obvious for many engineers from all around the galaxy. We posses significant labor resources, which can guarantee fastest construction of any ship. I hope we can arrange meeting between representatives of my Ministry and Ministry of Defense of Most Serene Republic Cymiopolis -Good, now get there as quickly as you can and hand it over to someone significant.
