Yeah. Now go fight with France somewhere else.
I have an announcement:
As of now and forevermore, Dylanopolis is oficially The dylanation's capital city. We are both the American Governor, although technically The Dylanation is the position holder. We are also both united against nations who continue to give us hate speech and baby fights. We will not stand for regional injustice, and anyone who commits such acts shall hereby be suggested to Confederate States of America s as an option for regional banning.
Oh, and if you so as wise up and ban either of us I shall remain in contact with Confed. States and form a region where any jerks are not welcome.
Carry on! :)
Also the dylanation will join the WA, please endorse!
I agree. No more baby fights. Letís all be civil and respectful.

Argh! Someone with high influence ban this guy!
If I'm WA Delegate but with the same authorities as American Governor (Not American Governor with WA authority, just WA Delegate without executive authority.) then I can make sure our region has a say in WA resolutions, and that we can make our own proposals. But I can't propose unless I have two endorsements.
Join the WA so you can endorse me, I'll endorse back I promise! (Or I will find a region willing to do so.
To be WA delegate you need to be endorsed by other WA nations however, I'm not sure if there are other WA nations in this region.
From the Office of Jayson Steele, President, Free Libertitus:
Warm greetings to our new neighbors in the Union of Conservative Nations.
It is a high honor and distinct privilege for our nation to become a part of this hearty, like-minded region. We look forward to establishing diplomatic relations with our fellow states in the region, and becoming a worthy contributor.
The Titan LCC-1 rocket that will take three titanauts to the moon has been moved to the launchpad:
Liberty City -- The Libertitan Space Agency has moved its Titan LCC-1 rocket to the launch pad at Cape Freedom; one of the final steps in preparing for a mission that will send three titanauts to the moon.
"We are very pleased to announce that LCC-1 has been wheeled to the launch pad. We'll conduct a number of tests over the next few days, just to ensure that all systems aboard the spacecraft are functioning at optimal capacity," Mission Director Jordan Turk said Friday at a hastily-called press briefing.
"Our primary responsibility is the safety of the crew, and we take that very seriously. Unfortunately with a mission like this, one small mistake can be catastrophic. And while the launch is scheduled for Tuesday at 9am, we have no problem stopping the countdown for as long as necessary should any concerns arise.
I should tell you though that so far, mission prep has been nothing short of perfect. That's a testament to our crew here on the ground, and the team that will be heading to the moon."
The flight crew is comprised of veteran titanaut James D. Anderson, commander; Aldrick "Twiggy" Collins, pilot; and Christie Mae Strong, flight engineer.
Last week, Commander Anderson spoke at a private dinner for mission control staff and their families. A transcript of his brief speech included his closing remarks:
"And so, ladies and gentlemen, we endeavor to go to the moon. And once we've conquered our little celestial neighborhood, we'll go beyond. Maybe Mars. Maybe maybe Pluto. Maybe a planet we haven't discovered yet. Who knows.
But one thing I do know, is that no mission upon which the LSA embarks can be accomplished without the dedication of our mission control staff. I trust you with my life. And I thank your families for allowing me the great privilege of flying with you.
God bless each of you. And may He also bless Free Libertitus. Thank you so much."
LCC-1 is hurtling through our atmosphere and nearing the Karman Line on a mission to take Free Libertitans to earth's moon:
En masse, the Control staff stood, acknowledging the president's arrival.
"Please, take your seats," Steele said cordially, focused intently on the rocket that had three of his best Titanauts sitting atop it.
Mission Director Jordan Turk called upon all system engineers to pronounce their part of the mission "go fly" or "hold." All engineers reported with a happy and intense, "GO FLY!"
"All systems reporting go fly," Turk announced over his headset to the crew. "Commander Anderson, Titanaut Aldrick, and Titanaut Strong, you carry with you the dreams of our great nation. To colonize the moon and to explore the reaches beyond. We place our faith in you, to carry our flag, to represent us all, and to carry out your mission in peace -- demonstrating the utmost professionalism and ability. The president is in the control room and wishes to address you briefly."
Steele smiled proudly as Director Turk handed him a small microphone.
"Crew of LCC-1," Steele began. "It is a high honor and immense privilege to address you at the most exciting and nerve-wracking time of your lives. You have each been chosen not only because of your unparalleled ability, but because of your professional bearing and love of country. I, and all Libertitans, are proud of your service, your sacrifice, and your willingness to do the things we only dream of. Carry with you our love, our prayers, and our full support. God bless."
"Thank you, Mr. President," Commander Anderson answered over a PA system that was audible throughout the room. "It's honor to speak with you, and God willing, we'll have the chance to do it again. It's kinda up to this big Roman candle we're sitting on," he joked. "Sir, know that we carry with us the adventurous spirit of all Libertitans, and we dedicate this mission to each of you."
Director Turk quickly shifted his persona, now focused solely on the success of the mission.
"Continue the countdown. Do all systems still report go fly, sending LCC-1 on a mission to the earth's moon."
In order, each system director reported "GO FLY" once more.
10...9...8...7...6...main engine start...
A burst of smoke and flame billowed from under the rocket.
5...4...all engines running and nominal...3...2...1...
"LIFTOFF!!! WE HAVE A LIFTOFF!!!" shouted Director Turk into his headset.
Settling himself a little, he continued. "Liftoff of LCC-1, on a mission of the nation of Free Libertitus, to establish our presence on the earth's moon, leading us toward colonization and further exploration of our universe."
The control room erupted in cheers, and the cheers of thousands of assembled citizens in the outdoor viewing area could also be faintly heard.
The system directors updated the early flight, gave instructions, and responded to the Titanauts as LCC-1 climbed toward the clouds.
When the rocket had disappeared, and Director Turk had taken off his headset, the president beckoned him over.
"Jordan," the president said, shaking the director's hand, "This wasn't a mission I could have entrusted to just anyone. We're on the world stage right now, and while the first act appears to be going brilliantly, I'm trusting you to ensure that remains the case until the final curtain drops. Accomplish the mission. Return our Titanauts safely."
"Of course, Mr. President," Director Turk said confidently. "Space is certainly not without its challenges, sir. But I can assure you we've accounted for as many of them as possible."
"Good," the president said, turning to leave with Agent Zero.
"Ladies and gentlemen," he said, turning to address all of Mission Control before he exited. "I am immensely proud of you, and the courage each of you has displayed in stepping up to meet the demands of such an ambitious program. I do not take lightly what you folks on the ground do. Three lives are in your hands until they return. God bless you. God bless them. And God bless the Republic of Free Libertitus."
There were cheers, the president waved, and then he was gone.
