The name Lazarus may well come from the Bible passage where Lazarus is raised from the dead:
43: "And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth."
44: "And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go."
What does the regional saying/unofficial regional motto 'Mmph MMPH' mean?
What is MMPH? Baby don't mmph me...
John Laurens: Don't MMPH me, no more 🎅

New Rogernomics: [...]we have a saying: "All votes end in January!" because one time McChimp put the wrong year and month for a vote ending time.

Since we've had a few questions about regional policy, these rules should help clarify what we expect on the RMB.
Firstly, do we not allow Recruitment on the RMB, which includes:
Recruiting for another region or organization on the Lazarus RMB.
Posting unsolicited links for recruitment to other regions or organizations.
Recruiting on our RMB for a raiding or defending operation, though Anti-Fascist missions carried out by LazCorp of course are excluded.
Recruiting will result in suppressing the post, and if it persists ejection of the nation(s) in question.
Secondly, we do not allow Spam on the RMB, which includes:
Triple posting on our RMB, or alternatively posting large wads of text that aren't related to a RP for example.
Posting just a few words in spammy fashion, which can bring the ire of the NS moderators, if not risk your nation being deleted by them. Please don't it.
Posting unsolicited links that aren't from safe websites or applications*1, which could contain an internet virus to make others or Tubby sick...nasty stuff there.
Spamming will risk getting your post suppressed, and if excessive spamming persists, ejection of the nation(s) in question.
*1: Links from YouTube, Dailymotion, Spotify, Google Docs, and so on, are fine, whereas mywebsite.com or myblog.com links are not.
Lastly, we do not permit things that would otherwise be against game rules or acceptable discussion, which includes:
Promoting fascism on our RMB,
Displaying obviously National Socialist flags or mottos on your nation,
Displaying content that breaks the PG-13 rules of this site, like sexual content.
Breaking these rules will risk getting your RMB post(s) suppressed and ejection of the nation(s) in question.
Our company is committed to developing a fun and safe community in which resident nations - and those just travelling through - can be at ease while experiencing the best this game has to offer.
Above you'll find links to information on various aspects of the game and our region. Below is an outline of our leadership system and how to join it. We value your feedback, so if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please reach out to us!
LazCorp's corporate design is based on Mandate 12, our guiding legal document.

Twelfth Mandate of Lazarus (Mandate 12)
Current Regional Endorsement Cap
If you've endorsed the Delegate (CEO): 120 WA Endorsements
If you've not endorsed the Delegate (CEO): 10 WA Endorsements
Why do we need an Endorsement Cap? In an ideal situation we would not need one, as everyone would keep below the delegate and not try and disrupt regional security. Unfortunately overthrowing legitimate delegates in a coup d'etat does happen in this game. So please keep below the endorsement cap so that Tubbius AKA the Tubby One (Treadwellia) can continue spreading MmpH throughout the land.
How is the Endorsement Cap enforced? Every month World Assembly nations will be checked to see if they are under endorsement cap. If nations are above either cap by 10 WA Endorsements, they may be asked to reduce their endorsements, and may undergo un-endorsement campaigns. It is easy to keep under if you send telegrams to those who are putting you above the cap, or just let your endorsements decline.
Will the Endorsement Cap increase? It might, though it all depends on how many are endorsing the Delegate. There are limits set by gameplay mechanics as well to take into account, as our ability to eject/ban for security reasons can be made more difficult.
What will happen if I am above cap for more than a month or so? When enough folks are above the cap, we will post a temporary dispatch advising nations they are above cap. Hypothetically, if a nation continued to be above cap despite official warnings by telegram and dispatch, they could be banned or ejected. Though bans and ejections are the last resort. We are more likely to attempt an un-endorsement campaign first.
What is an un-endorsement campaign? It is effectively a telegram campaign against WA nations above the Endorsement Cap, and will only telegram endorsing nations as necessary to gradually bring a nation down to cap.
In-game embassy? Regions that already possess an in-game embassy with Lazarus are encouraged to establish a forum embassy as well.
Not an in-game embassy? If a region that does not possess an in-game embassy with Lazarus would like to begin developing relations with Lazarus it must first establish a forum embassy. After a period of review, a region that has taken this step may be sent an in-game embassy request from Lazarus and a Lazarene ambassador will be sent to the region.
Forum embassies provide regions or organizations with an official place on our forums to share information, make statements and proposals, and generally develop relations between each other.
Please read the following forum embassy guidelines before applying:
1. All applications will be considered, although overly small (less than 30 nations) or new regions (less than a year) will most likely be declined.
2. We ask that if granted an embassy, you post in it at least once every few months:
(a) If your embassy is not posted in for 90 days, your region will receive a notification that it may be closed:
(b) You will then have a certain period of time, usually at least two weeks, in which to make a post in the embassy.
(c) If no activity takes place before the deadline, your embassy will be archived. A new application will need to be filled out to reopen it.
Note: Embassies are for regions or organizations, not individual nations.
With our regional government there are opportunities to get involved in the politics of the region. Lazarus has regional elections every four months for most political positions, and there are opportunities to become a member of a Department (Ministry) and serve Lazarus that way. You can get hands on experience of how our government works, and maybe even run for political office yourself in the future. This section of the guide will give you a brief run down of what is on offer.

The World Assembly
One of the first things you might consider doing is joining the World Assembly, as it allows your nation to:
Vote on WA resolutions in the World Assembly
Endorse our awesome Delegate (CEO), Treadwellia
Propose General Assembly Resolutions (read the Rules & General advice here).
Propose Security Council Resolutions (read the Rules for SC Proposals here).
How can I join the World Assembly? You visit the World Assembly page and join
At the top of the World Assembly page is the option to Apply to Join the World Assembly, or if you have already joined to resign from the World Assembly.
Once you click ‘Apply to Join’, you should receive an email within 24 hours, once you receive this email you can click within the email to confirm your WA membership.
Before joining the World Assembly however, you must make sure that you have added an Email address to your Nation account:
Another activity you can do in the game is to answer your nation issues, which will allow you to change the Civil Rights, Economic freedoms, and Political Freedoms in your nation, in addition to what you decided when you first founded your nation.
What are Issues? Issues are events that your nation has to decide to do about - or dismiss (ignore):
Each issue usually shows different views of petitioners within your nation:
How many issues can I have each day?
12 hours between issues.
24 hours between issues.
48 hours between issues
What happens when I answer issues? When you answer issues, they change your rankings in global categories:
They also change how your nation ranks in Civil Rights, Political freedoms, and Economic freedoms:
Here are some government categories that can result from how your issues are answered.
This shows how recent issues have impacted a nation.
