Iron Front Regional Message Board
Guys, I have written up a constitution for us. What do you think about it? I posted it on my dispatches page, but I can't pin it on the regional page. Aureumterra or Iron Front Founder, please pin it. Here's the link:
We, the Iron Front, hereby devote ourselves to the ideas of democracy and anti-totalitarianism. Every person has a right to hold their opinions and to express them through the democratic process and in open, civil debate. The totalitarians, who seek to silence all those who disagree with them, are a cancer on society and we condemn them.
The Iron Front defends both the right to participate in government, and freedom from the intolerance that totalitarianism brings. We welcome all those who support democracy and oppose totalitarianism, without regard to their other political leanings.
Article I: Membership
For the purposes of this constitution, a person will be considered a citizen of the Iron Front if they:
- have their main or sole account as a member the Iron Front;
- have been a member of the region continuously for at least 3 days (72 hours); and
- hold political values that are not in conflict with the Mission Statement.
People who are members of the Iron Front, but who do not meet the requirements for citizenship, are entitled to take part in debates, but cannot be guaranteed the full rights of citizenship.
The Iron Front Founder account does not hold citizenship, as it isn't a main account, but whoever controls the founder account does hold citizenship if they qualify for it with their main account.
Article II: Presidency
The head of the regional government is the President.
Every person who holds citizenship in the Iron Front has the right to run for president and to vote in presidential elections. The president will have a term of office lasting 3 months. Elections will take place by open (non-secret) ballot, with voting taking place in a location agreed on in advance by the members of the region. Voting will be open for 3 days (72 hours). Voting will begin at a time agreed on in advance by the members of the region, but not later than 3 days (72 hours) before the swearing-in of the president.
Presidents will be sworn in at 12:00 noon UTC on the following dates:
- 1 January
- 1 April
- 1 July
- 1 October
On the regional Administration page, the president will hold power over Appearance, Border Control, Communications, Embassies, and Polls. The president will be the leader of the region, serving as its main spokesperson and representative.
Article III: Officers Besides President
Section I: The Founder
Executive power on the Administration page will be reserved for the Iron Front Founder account. Any decision (made by the president or by any other citizen of the region) which requires the use of Executive power may only be carried out by the Iron Front Founder.
Section II: The World Assembly Delegate
The region's World Assembly Delegate, or just Delegate, will hold World Assembly powers on the regional Administration page. It is the sitewide rules of NationStates that determine who becomes delegate, so elections for that Office is beyond the scope of this constitution.
Section III: Other Officers
The president has the power to appoint or dismiss other Officers on the Administration page. Other Officers may be given any combination of the Administration page powers that the president holds. These other Officers are not subject to being approved or rejected by the Council, but serve at the pleasure of the president.
Article IV: Council
The legislature of the regional government is the Iron Front Council, or just Council.
Every person who holds citizenship in the Iron Front is a member of the Iron Front Council and has the right to vote on it. The president, WA Delegate, and other Officers are members with full voting rights, and do not vacate their seats on the Council when taking office.
Since only individuals, and not groups, can be given powers on the Administration page, the Council cannot officially be vested with any formal powers. However, as power is derived from the consent of the governed, the Council has wide unofficial powers. It oversees the president and other Officers, and serves as a check on their powers. If the Council makes a decision, the president and other Officers must (to the best of their abilities) enforce this decision.
Article V: Amending This Constitution
If there is any disagreement on how to interpret this constitution, the citizens of the Iron Front have the collective power to interpret this constitution and to make new laws accordingly.
This constitution can be amended. For a proposed amendment to take effect, it must either:
- be approved by a simple majority on the Iron Front Council and get signed by the President; or
- be approved by a two-thirds supermajority on the Iron Front Council, with the President having no say.
I have an idea.
An idea? Please tell.
That's an interesting idea, and our values do seem to be in line with each other. But I also think neither we nor you guys want to give up our name. Although young, both regions have our own identities. Since Old Zealand has 55 members and the Iron Front has 11 (not counting my 3 puppets), it seems more likely that we merge into you and not the other way around.
When all that is said, Aureumterra is our president so he should be involved in any merger discussions. And even if the leadership both in the Iron Front and in Old Zealand think that it would be a good idea, we should have a referendum in each region.
Hey, new to this game, and was browsing through random regions and this one looked neat. Can anyone give me a basic overview/tips?
Hi, and welcome to the Iron Front. I'm not sure if you mean tips about Nationstates generally or this region specifically, so here's a bit of both:
There are many different things you can do in Nationstates, and there really isn't a "wrong" way to play. You have probably seen the "Issues" tab at the top of the page, where you can read through political issues and pick from among some options. Each option changes the statistics of your country in various ways. Be aware that the issues, and really a lot of things in Nationstates, are satirical, and because of this, your stats will be affected quite extremely regardless of which option you choose. Some people choose to play the issues based on their own political opinions, while others roleplay as a fascist dictatorship or a communist worker's state or a constitutional monarchy or whatever. You can also write in the forums, some of which are in-character where you roleplay as your country's leader, but most are as yourself.
And that gets us to the Iron Front. While there are many people who just roleplay their country to have evil ideologies, there are also many Nationstates players who are actual fascists and communists, and these totalitarians usually stick together in fascist or communist regions. The Iron Front is for fighting against those regions, by using a number of tactics, including raiding. Our region president, Aureumterra, is a lot more knowledgeable about raiding than I am, so I recommend you ask him if you have questions about raiding. We usually plan raids and do other discussion on our Discord server (link: https://discord.gg/d9C2RAq ), so be sure to join there.
If you have any questions, or want to know more about something, you are always welcome to contact me or anyone else in regional leadership.

There has been a lot of confusion regarding my main nationís deletion, I suspect it has to do with IP addresses regarding shared nations, including Iron Front Founder. Those who have access to the nation may want to keep an eye on the forum thread I made
