    What is Delegate Delirium all about?
    Delegate Delirium is the event that marks Delegates' Day, which occurs on September 9th every year. Delegates' Day seeks to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work of all of TNP's delegates, and recognize their immense contributions to our region.

    Delirium is an exciting event that pits former TNP delegates against one another to determine who was the very best! Winners are decided via in-game polls hosted on the TNP NS page, which are open to all nations in the region.

    For the first 4 rounds (elimination flights), the top two (out of eleven) will advance into the quarter-finals. The quarter-finals, semi-finals, and finals will be one-on-one, winner-take-all matches to the death in the steel cage!

    The ultimate victor will receive a shiny medal, and be declared (honorary) King of TNP! The event will recur every year for Delegates' Day, so if your preferred delegate doesn't win this year, they can try their luck again next time.

    Who is eligible to compete?

    Excellent question! All individuals who have held the delegacy in TNP are permitted to enter, with three exceptions. First, anyone who has held the delegacy with more than one nation is only allowed one entry. Second, the sitting delegate at the time the competition is held is disqualified, due to their incumbency advantage. Finally, prior winners of the title may not enter in future years, in order to make sure the spoils are spread around.

    However, all other former delegates are eligible - even ones who took the delegacy due to a coup!

    Who won in previous years?
    Below is the list of past winners:
    • 2017: Lord Ravenclaw and McMasterdonia
    • 2018: SillyString
    Is there a list of all the delegates somewhere?

    There sure is! Check out this handy dandy dispatch for a complete list, including dates and national flags!


    I really want to vote for my favorite delegate. How do I know when they'll be playing?

    Fear not! We have a schedule all drawn up, so you'll know just when to lodge your votes!

    ROUND 2 of the Delegate Delirium elimination flights has begun! Siwale and HMS Unicorn, also known as r3n, will advance from last round to the Quarter-Finals. We've got a colorful cast of characters this time around, including Thel D'Ran, who designed the previous TNP flag; Durkadurkiranistan, also known as JAL, who couped TNP twice; Emperor Matthuis, who lost a democratic election because his opponent framed him for plotting to coup and then went on to coup; and Pallaith, who's just, IDK, some guy.

    GET OUT AND VOTE!

    Forgot to vote in the first round :( not that it'd have made any difference lol. Easy choice this round.... but IMO some difficult choices to make in the third and fourth rounds particularly!

    Advancing this time are Ghost "Just Some Guy" Pallaith and Flem "God" Ingovia. Congrats to both! This is Flem's first time to make it through the elimination rounds - but can he go all the way??

    Round 3 has been open since this morning - make sure you cast your vote!

    That's all, folks - Delegate Delirium 2019 is a wrap! It is with great sorrow and regret joy and delight that I hereby bestow the victory, the award, and honorary kingship of TNP on Pallaith.

    Being your king has been a treat! Go easy on the new guy, y'all. :P
