    Is there a reason these were the only two militaries mentioned? Were the rest deemed insufficiently pure and/or annoying to Grub? Because there were many other militaries involved.

    Taking a region for a few minutes is "a decisive battle"? This from the region that ridicules and completely dismisses tag raiding? :lol:

    If we felt like slighting anyone I doubt we'd have buried it in an embassy update. ;) Grub is usually rather clear about his opinions, so there's no need to read anything sinister into that particular paragraph.

    Re: The LWU-TITO war; You have to admit that it's been a pretty boring one so far, so compared to previous hostilities (hurling insults back and forth?) this probably counts as exciting. :P

    Edit: TITO does have a longstanding, albeit seldom used, tradition of counter invading raider regions which we particularly dislike.

    * Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the Mayoral Mansion. One is from Controlitia, another is from Markanite, and the third is from Barrarabia. All three go with a Taco Island official to examine the fence. The Controlitian contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $900. $400 for materials, $400 for my crew, and $100 profit for me." The Markanite contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700. $300 for materials, $300 for my crew, and $100 profit for me." The Barrarabian contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the official and whispers, "$2,700." The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?" The Barrarabian contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Markanite to fix the fence." *

"You will carry this tree with you wherever you go. If anyone asks you why you're carrying this tree, you will say, 'It’s to replace the oxygen I stole from everyone else.'" *

    A statement from the office of the delegate:

    [​IMG]
    The World Assembly Delegate for 10000 Islands
    A Statement on “Liberate California”:

    This past weekend, notorious invader General Knot has presented a draft to the Security Council, in which he claims that the Ten thousand Islands Treaty Organisation (TITO) is in the process of passwording the region of California without native consultation. This is blatantly untrue. The long-time natives of California have been involved in all discussions regarding the fate of California. General Knot has yet to present the Council with evidence to the contrary. Of the three native nations he lists, two have sadly CTE and are thus unable to testify as to their involvement, while the third one left California during the last occupation, quite probably in frustration about the continued attacks on their homeland.

    Outside the actual draft, but inside the drafting thread, Knot goes on to accuse TITO and the Yggdrasil Defence Service (YDS) of trying to refound California in order to keep it as a trophy. This completely ignores historic facts. Whenever TITO was involved in a refound operation of an active region, the region has been returned to native control. Notable examples include Australia, and Deutschland. TITO has never kept any trophy regions, except when orchestrating hostile refounds of invader regions. California is not an invader region and as such there is no danger of it ending up as a TITO trophy. Organisations that do keep trophy regions include raiders such as the Black Hawks and the now not only defunct but also forbidden organisation of DEN. Knot still prides himself on the rank he held in the latter, despite the site staff’s large-scale intervention against DEN for multiple and repeated rule-breaking behaviour, citing a “culture of rule-breaking [that] has become institutionalised” in DEN (Sedgistan).

    It is patently obvious that Knot does not have the best interests of California natives at heart. After all, he had absolutely no objections when DEN occupied the region, passworded it and reduced the regional population to the single-digit numbers. He also showed no respect for the long-term natives he’s claiming to represent when he was involved in the invasion of California by “The Invaders” last week. This is simply a cheap attempt at tarnishing the reputation of TITO and YDS, while providing no evidence to back up his claims. He is purely interested in keeping California open for future invasions.

    We will not let this cheap attempt at slander keep us from supporting native communities in securing their regions.

    10000 Islands Emissary Update
    Date: July 2016
    Population: 1,617
    Delegate Endorsements: 521
    Forum: http://10000islands.proboards.com

    The following is the Emissary Report for July 2016.

    Note from the Delegate
    "Liberate California" was defeated 8,424 votes to 6,154. We want to communicate our sincerest gratitude to all our friends who stuck by us and voted against the slander contained in that proposal. 10000 Islands and TITO thank you. Once again, I can assure you that the natives of California and their security was our paramount concern during all of this.

    Unfortunately, the campaign against "Liberate California" took up so much of my time that I didn't get around to editing the Emissary Report. So here it is, once again delayed. It was all me, please don't whack the Emissaries or Senator Isles de Taylor with a huge, wooden stick. That would be uncalled for. Instead, have some delicious pineapple slices.

    Yours,
    Louisistan

    10000 Islands Emissary Update
    Date: October 2016
    Population: 2,354
    Delegate Endorsements: 456
    Forum: 10000islands.proboards.com

    The following is the Emissary Report for October 2016.

    Regional Events
    The current Council of Nine (government of 10000 Islands) is composed of:

    - Grub (Founder/Chief Executive)
    - Boltor (WA Delegate)
    - Markanite (Minister of Education)
    - HumanSanity (Minister of Immigration)
    - The Candy Lane (Minister of Labor)
    - Dominion of Compassion (Senior Senator for New Republica South)
    - Ananke II (Senator for Blue Canaria North)
    - Coromandall (Senator for Lyonesse East)
    - Lower Columbia (Senator for Himes West)


    - The month saw a big jump in our regional population, going from 1700 to 2300, partly due to the recent influx of new players from Imgur and Reddit, but mostly thanks to our prolific recruiters Escanaba and Boltor. With nearly 700 confirmed recruits this month Escanaba is leading the pack. Not to be outdone though, Boltor managed to reach more than 300 confirmed recruits this month. Thanks for your hard work!
    - Coromandall helped out as well and earned the Immigration Achievement award upon reaching 30 recruits.
    - Also thanks to the rest our recruiters this month; Louisistan, Kortexia, Isles de Taylor, Charbasauria, The Candy Lane, Aersoldorf and Hahiha.
    - The House Cup and Shield competition also happened this month. Congrats to the members of the House of Wordy for winning the House Cup, the House of Boltor for winning the House Shield, and to Boltor individually on winning the House Sceptre.
    - Ingame this month saw Surprise taking the top spot as 1st in the world for Most Pro-Market, while Dustwind, Blogotopia, Tzo, FreeGunsForAll and Coreras all got into the top 10 of the world for Most Influential. In 10ki we’re all for spreading the (influence) love around.
    Fraton reached 6th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry. Can’t say it comes as a surprise for the rest of us, since his casinos have been fleecing us for months.
    Not content to be 4rd in the world for most influential, Blogotopia also managed to reach 9th in the World for Largest Black Market. Makes you wonder if there’s a connection... Figuring that you can always use more top 10 placements, Blogotopia then became 1st in the world for Most Rebellious Youth.
    Continuing his streak of making everyone else jealous of his amazing nation, Tzo reached 3rd in the world for Most Compassionate Citizens, 5th in the world for Most Cheerful Citizens and 2nd in the world for Nicest Citizens.

    Political News
    - Boltor was elected delegate, succeeding Louisistan, who’s had an eventful period as delegate and is now looking forward to a peaceful time as XO of TITO.
    - Ananke became the new senator for Blue Canaria North, while Dominion of Compassion won another term as senator for New Republica South.
    - Minister of Immigration HumanSanity is still looking for a deputy. For someone interested in the political side of NS it’s a great opportunity to get involved with the inner workings of 10ki.
    - Delegate Boltor is also currently looking for emissaries to the regions Philosophy 115 and ITALIA, both longtime friends of 10ki.

    Military
    TITO Command currently consists of:
    - Grub (Founder/Commander-in-Chief)
    - Klopstock (Field Commander)
    - Kanta Hame (Tactical Officer)
    - Witchcraft & Sorcery (Tactical Officer)
    - Woonsocket (Tactical Officer EF)
    - Louisistan (Executive Officer)

    TITO News
    - After stepping down as delegate of 10ki Louisistan is back as Executive Officer of TITO, ready to shake the dust off and get active on the battlefield once again.
    - Unfortunately our old XO Barry recently CTE’d. Here’s to hoping that he’ll be back at some point.
    - TITO Field Commander Klopstock reached a significant milestones this month. Klopstock passed his 200th mission, earning the time Knight Master Commander.
    - Tactical Officer Kanta Hame and TITO Knight Hahiha both reached 150 battlestars this month, thereby earning the title of Knight Battalion Commander for their time spent defending vulnerable regions.
    - Tactical Officer Elite went one further though and reached 250 missions this month, becoming the newest Knight Marshall Commander.
    -TITO Knight Magthere joined the small group of those who have reached 300 battlestars this month, earning the title of TITO Knight Legion Commander.

    Around the Islands
    - The 10ki Poet Laureate Contest was held this past month and once again won by Major Aersoldorf. The voters of 10ki are clearly loth to change a winning formula. Thanks to Klopstock and The Candy Lane for giving Aersoldorf a fight. Better luck next time, guys!
    - Grub's 10 Million Taco Fund recovered from being in a loss in September to now having a return greater than 1 million tacos, with the fund ending on the 1st of November.
    - The featured nations in 10ki this month were Pazakistan
    - WW:50: Pandora’s Boxes, hosted by Aersoldorf, ended with the werewolves winning. Signups for WW:51: Curse of the Pirate Treasure have started and will be hosted by none other than Louis I. Stan, Esquire.
    - In Taco Islands new delegate Boltor is currently trying to shoot a Boltywood movie. So far the actors seem a bit inept though.
    - Meanhile the SS Ator Boltox fanfiction about the stormy relationship between delegate Boltor and tactical officer Ater Nox has reached 14 pages and shows no sign of slowing down. Finding itself with a taste for soap opera the 10ki public is waiting with baited breath to find out whether Boltor will make up with Ater Nox or spend his time admiring shovels.
    - At the 10ki University it’s now possible to sign up for a class on the history of weapons
    - Like previous years a certain segment of the 10ki population plans on going full zombie at halloween. Being rule abiding citizens, in between all the brain eating, they plan on gathering in the region 10000 Zombies and have already started planning their rampage through NS. We wish them well and stand ready with cure missiles and all manner of weaponry at the gates of 10ki.

    10000 Islands Emissary Update
    Date: December 2016
    Population: 1,774
    Delegate Endorsements: 439
    Forum: 10000islands.proboards.com

    The following is the Emissary Report for December 2016.

    Regional Events
    The current Council of Nine (government of 10000 Islands) is composed of

    - Grub (Founder/Chief Executive)
    - Boltor (WA Delegate)
    - Markanite (Minister of Education)
    - HumanSanity (Minister of Immigration)
    - The Candy Lane (Minister of Labor)
    - Dominion of Compassion (Senior Senator for New Republica South)
    - Ananke II (Senator for Blue Canaria North)
    - Hahiha / USSR (Senator for Lyonesse East)
    - Lower Columbia (Senator for Himes West)

    - Ingame this month Grub ranked 93rd in the world for Largest Population, while Surprise was 3rd in the world for Most Politically Free, a very nice placement.
    Earth Federation (32), The Colonial Fleet (48), Lamborghini Murcielago (65) and Tzo (89) all did very well in the Most Scientifically Advanced category. Earth Federation also ended up in the top 100 for Largest Retail Industry with a placement as 75th in the world, with Berzerkastan close by at 89.
    Trade is not everything though. Blogotopia and New Dracora knows this and therefore ranked 51th and 70th in Highest Poor Incomes.
    A healthy society has a wellread population, with Cyrenean ranked 4th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry and New Gilboa 68th.

    Political News
    - During elections this month Lower Colombia kept his senate seat for Himes West while Hahiha won the Lyonnesse East seat.
    - With Hahiha becoming a senator, Minister of Education Markanite is looking for a new deputy.
    - This month Escanaba attracted almost 400 recruits. He was 10ki’s top recruiter for the month and earned the Echolilia Full throttle award, while Louisistan was the runner up recruiter.
    - Near the end of the month the Mystery Nation program was brought back with Escanaba finding one of the two nations created.

    Military
    TITO Command currently consists of:
    - Grub (Founder/Commander-in-Chief)
    - Klopstock (Field Commander)
    - Kanta Hame (Tactical Officer)
    - Witchcraft & Sorcery (Tactical Officer)
    - Woonsocket (Tactical Officer EF)
    - Louisistan (Executive Officer)

    TITO News
    - November proved to be a busy month for TITO. The number of successful missions remained constant (although there was a spike mid-month) and the relatively high number of occupied regions kept both Command Staff and troops busy.
    - The month was also busy with regards to celebrations. 104 Banbury Road, Hakketomat and Kortexia were all knighted by the TITO Field Commander for achieving 50 TITO Battle Stars. Former two-term Delegate Markanite was promoted to TITO Knight Battalion Commander for earning 150 Battle Stars. The Knights also threw a rousing party for Escanaba following his promotion to TITO Knight Fleet Commander. This rank is awarded to TITO Knights with more than 400 Battle Stars. Escanaba is only the fifth member of TITO to achieve this (following former Field Commanders Titanica, Anime Daisuki and Improving Wordiness as well as former Tactical Officer Boltor). He is the first member of TITO to have earned 400 Battle Stars without having served a single Day in TITO Command.
    - TITO Command once again extends its sincerest congratulations to 104 Banbury Road, Hakketomat, Kortexia, Markanite and Escanaba!

    Around the Islands
    - With all the shenanigans going on in Taco Island, Ater Nox decided to start a new Law School. It mostly seem to be aimed at crooked lawyers though, which doesn’t really come as a surprise, considering the kind of characters who frequent Taco Island...
    - For some reason the Taco Islands denizens have gotten their hands on a Trebuchet and are currently trying to take down the courthouse, possibly to keep from getting sued or going to jail.
    - Going with this month’s law team Boltor seems to be trying to frame Louisistan, while Ater Nox and Tanzoria are suing Hakketomat for slander. Fortunately for Hakketomat, the truth tends to be an decent defense against slander, and considering Ater Nox and Tanzoria’s reputations it’s hard to see how they can be further tarnished.
    - The featured nations in 10ki this month were Glassdrummond and Nodenmanns Land.

    Poem from our Poet Laureate Mursilis

    Palms of Victory

    Why do the palm trees bend under the sun?
    Are they beaten from the day's run?

    While the gales relentlessly howl,
    the tenacious beings modestly bow.

    Yes, they do not attack and shun,
    but instead through acceptance have won.

    - Mursilis

    Around the Islands
    - The 56th round of WereWolf was won by the village as well as the Serial Killer
    - Ater Nox has become so deluded to think that Hakketomat is involved in some form of conspiracy with the Norwegian government to take over Taco Island.
    - Demands by the Middle Class to cut taxes are obviously not taken seriously by the Taco Island government as it ponders on whether to cut through the Middle Class with a knife.

    Poem by the Poet Laureate
    Flowers bloom and die
    Navigating the seasons
    Each time budding dreams
