First founded in 2003. Back when this game was a game to be played.

This is a place of protection and rebirth. Not a place for sycophantic heathen self promulgating their hate based social gaming.
This may indeed prove to be a place of return and resurrection for the players that remember. The ones that recall. The ones that

Hello, fellow embassy region!

Do you want to enter a fun competition? Do you want the story of your region to be highlighted? If so, then you should join... The Challenge Of The Embassies!

Please read the following dispatch for more information!

The Kingdom Of Aredita Is Hosting A Challenge!
The Challenge Overview
Hello embassies,
Aredita here! As we are in the midst of The Coronavirus, not being able to have many social interactions have definitely put boredom into my life, and I'm sure others lives as well. But, I don't believe in boredom! So, to challenge the evils of boredom, I thought that it would be fun to have a little NationStates competition! Sure, this isn't an official component of the game, but I still thought that it would be fun. So, here it is: I am officially announcing The Challenge Of The Embassies!
What Is "The Challenge Of The Embassies?"
I'm glad you asked! The Challenge Of The Embassies is a great game to support patriotism of your current region, bring the embassies The Region Of Gargery has, together, and challenge and defeat boredom! But, I'm sure you were wondering what the game is exactly. Again, thank you for asking! Each region The Region Of Gargery (Gargery) has as an embassy will have the option to sign up for the game. If your region is on the list below, congratulations, you can sign up!

Any new embassies that Gargrey gets will not be included in the challenge. Anyway, to the main point (sorry). If the WA Delegate or the Founder signs up for the competition, the whole region is in! Here, the region works and collaborates together to create a fictional short story about how their region came to be. For example, you could write a story about how your region was once ruled over by a crazy dictator and was taken over by its own people and made better (Or the opposite if you are a dictator region).

Rules Of The Challenge
Anyway, what's a competition without rules? After all, rules rule! Here is a list of the rules:
1. You may not get any help with your fictional story outside of your region

2. Forming alliances, bribing, or any other form of cheating to get information on another region's fictional story is prohibited. (This even applies if the regions agree to share their story).

3. A Nation in a region that is signed up is not obligated to contribute to the challenge.

4. Your short story must maintain a 600-word limit

5. There must be at least 4 regions competing in the challenge, or else it will be called off

What happens if you break the rules:
Well, I will penalize you. When I read and judge your short story, I will take into account that you cheated. Even if the story is really good, I still won't think of it the same way. However, the only rule that you can break (let me be clear, to an extent) is the 600-Word limit. If your short story is 601 words, don't worry about it! However, if it's 650 words, I would start worrying. I'm not going to penalize a region that has a couple of words over the 600-word limit. But, let's just say if you are over 610, it will be penalized.

How To Sign Up
First off, copy and paste this link into a new tab:

This will bring you to a page where either the Founder or the WA Delegate will sign up on behalf of the region. Just fill it out, and the region is signed up. Just like magic! Only the WA Delegate or The Founder can sign up. If it is detected that the region was signed up by not the WA Delegate or The Founder, it will result in disqualification.

Dates and Deadlines of The Competition
If you are wondering what the dates for the competition are, well, here you go:

Deadline to Sign Up: August 17, 2020 - If your region misses this date, it will not be allowed to participate. However, if you sign up on this date, it will not be marked as missing the deadline.

Competition Officially Starts: August 18, 2020 - This is the first day you can submit your short stories.

Submission Deadline: Monday, September 7, 2020 - All short stories must be telegrammed to me by this date. If not, your short story will not be judged.

How To Submit Your Story, Winning, and Awards
Once the whole region (or at least the nations that agreed to take part) agree that the short story is ready to submit and be judged, the WA Delegate or The Founder will address a telegram to me, Aredita and I will judge it. Please note: To keep things fair, Gargery will not be submitting an entry in the competition, since I will be judging the entries. And now, the best part: Awards! The top 3 entries are the ones that will be honored. Here is what they get:

First Place: A special, one of a kind video created by me honoring the first place region, bragging rights, an Official Certificate, and a whole lot of good attention!

Second Place: Bragging rights, a whole lot of good attention, and a one of a kind Official Certificate, created by me!

Third Place: Bragging rights and a whole lot of good attention!

For questions, comments, concerns, etc.
If you have a question, comment, concern, etc. Please send a telegram to me, Aredita and I will get back to you as soon as possible!


P.s. This pamphlet may be updated at any point, so be sure to check it every so often.
