SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 35
Commend The Skeleton Army
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.

Category: Commendation
Nominee: The Skeleton Army
Proposed by: Sedgistan

Description: The World Assembly,

Recognising The Skeleton Army as the self-declared “greatest raider region,”

Bowing down to their mighty leader, the Warrior Skeleton Queen of Ramazakal,

Noting that their fearless armies of the undead are renowned for conquering regions under the cover of darkness,

Aware that this is a fate that has befallen such prominent regions as Texas, The West Pacific, The Rejected Realms, and The Cuckoos Egg,

Surprised to learn that The Skeleton Army never causes harm to the regions it invades and instead prefers to mingle with the natives, steal food from their barbecues, and attempt to drink beer – with hilarious results,

Appreciating The Skeleton Army’s generous supply of sticky ribs to the regions it conquers,

Acknowledging that all that The Skeleton Army requires from its defeated enemies is for them to sign the Thighbone of Surrender,

Believing that these novel and unique military tactics are far superior to the conventional varieties,

Desiring that other regions follow their example,

Thusly Commends The Skeleton Army.

Votes For: 2,964
Votes Against: 1,352

Implemented: Mon Nov 1 2010

World Assembly Discussion: Commend The Skeleton Army, May – November 2010

Sedgistan:

A little bit of background – The Skeleton Army is the funniest raider group around. They’ve been in NationStates for several years, and their method of ‘raiding’ is to move some non-WA nations to the target region, and then post on the RMB claiming to have taken it over. I don’t think that description really does them justice – their invasions are absolutely hilarious, and generally enjoyed by all involved – especially the ‘invaded’ region.

Diplomats discuss in the halls of the WA

Sedgistan:

a raiding group that increases the activity of regions they ‘invade’, do no harm to them at all, don’t infringe their sovereignty, and all in all provide a good time for everyone

First Drafting in the Security Council Forum

NSwiki Article:

Following the submission of the proposal, The Skeleton Army decided to invade Yggdrasil followed by The West Pacific to demonstrate their methods.

The West Pacific Invasion, April 2010

The successful invasion of The West Pacific is well documented on its regional forum. The gargantuan feeder stood no chance against onslaught of the undead, and surrendered quickly.

Tao:

Twp Surrenders To The Skeleton Army

It began as a typical Thursday. A few “good morning” posts from the morning regulars, a couple of BADspams, and then the announcement came.

“Prepare this region for its Rightful Queen, Ramazakal the Beautiful, the Beneficent, the All-loving and All-knowing. Sign the Platinum-Plated Thighbone of Surrender (scrimshawed in 18-carat gold lettering) and all will go well with thee.”

And Rolheath signed.

Good thing, too, because his signature paved the way for the BBQ and beerquila fest that followed. Also, in a West Pacifican first, FRIDAY NIGHT KARAOKE in TWP instituted a Special Thursday edition to celebrate the merger with The Skeleton Army. What followed was a celebration that has continued to this very day. Nearly a full week of BBQ, beerquila, karaoke, and the kind of RMB FUN that one would only find in a Feeder invasion.

Skeleton Army officer Ripped Roots says, “Never has the Skeleton Army participated in this kind of campaign. It is truly unique. Totally unforgettable. The people in TWP are – HEY! Are those ˜sticky ribs™? Another pitcher of Chocolate Iguanas, please.”

Queen Ramazakal herself was overheard commenting, “Of all the regions under my dominion, The West Pacific is the finest and holds a special place in my heart. Well, in the section of my rib cage where my heart once was – let’s leave it at that.”

TWP Delegate-elect Darkesia had this to say about the Invasion. “Any other invaders would have been sent to Kandarin long ago; they wouldn’t have had a chance in TWP. But The Skeleton Army is different. I mean, look – they offer BBQ and beerquila. Who can say “NO” to that?”

The West Pacific Invasion, September 2007

Afterwards, many citizens of The West Pacific claimed they didn’t remember what had happened. But once the fogs of hangover cleared, and they checked, there it was. Their region had been conquered by the unstoppable undead.

Darkesia:

Invasion! Invasion!

Just wanted to put something here to commemorate the grand invasion of The West Pacific by The Skeleton Army.

If we don’t make some sort of reminder, none are liable to remember it. I intend to get roaringly drunk and forget about it myself soon.

God I love it when silliness rules this game! <<< the way Max intended.

Invasion! Invasion!
