World Census agents tested the sharpness of household objects, the softness of children's play equipment, and the survival rate of people taking late walks to determine how safe each nation is to visit.
As a region, Thaecia is ranked 8,349th in the world for Safest.
Disclaimer: This dispatch is (mostly) a joke. Do not actually follow this seriously.
So, you've been on NationStates for a while and have been answering issues, making lore, participating in the WA and RMB, but you're just lost on what to do now. Well, what you need is a "NS gf" or in layman's terms, "NationStates girl friend".
Or guy friend. Up to you.
This is a comprehensive guide to getting a NS gf, compiled by a relationship expert (me). If you're looking for my qualifications you may see this as evidence.
Step 1 Setting up
Make sure you're in a large and/or active region where you can talk a lot with your person. Don't send them any telegrams yet that aren't related to region business as you're still making your first impression.
Now make sure you can actually use your nation as a persona. You're not gonna have a lot of luck with "New Greater Second German Empire" but something sleek and cultured like "Diz" (mine) or "Kors" (PM of my region). Pro tip: If you wouldn't use your NS name IRL then you're going to have a much harder time getting a NS gf.
Also make sure that your person is active and WA in your region. You've got a better shot at getting their loyalty if they are less likely to hop around regions.
Step 2 First Impressions
Now you're gonna want to start talking with your NS "crush". Make sure you're talking with them on the RMB, or discord, or forums, or whatever. DON'T STALK THEM. THAT'S EXTREMELY IMMORAL. You can also start sending a few telegrams at this point. Be yourself- don't be your nation. Well obviously, don't dox yourself or anything.
If your region does roleplay, support your "crush" in that. Sign treaties, get better diplomatic relations. With better diplomatic relations come better personal relations. If your region does government simulation, support them politically and work together. If your region just does a bunch of memeing and chatting, make sure to talk with them a lot. Like and quote their posts. Obviously don't be weird about it, though.
Step 3 Finalization
Do: -endorse them -talk with them frequently -do some sort of international or domestic roleplay where you two are very closely linked -joke about her/him being your First Lady/First Gentleman -convince them to put your nations in a joke relationship -over time turn it into your personas/you in a joke relationship -wait until you've been doing it so long that you're in an "actual" relationship Don't: -mention that they're literally the only person that you've endorsed -talk with them nonstop -declare war on them in an rp -say you would like to form a union -go around saying you're ns dating without their consent -disrespect them in any way -be weird about it/be an incel -dox yourself (unless you guys are on like discord and are actually "together" )
Step 4 Profit
If she doesn't read WA proposals before voting, find someone else. How do you know she'll take the time to read you? Make sure you're not getting puppet-fished. Make sure she's not going around with the Delegate of your region (smh Bahnhof we'll never be the same) If anything that would be a red flag IRL is done here, also treat it as such.
Thanks for reading. Hopefully this was "helpful" and you learned something. I'm glad I can help.
