Yggdrasil flag

Yggdrasil flag

A place under the great ash tree
Happiness and esprit
They call it Yggdrasil
(Greatest of trees and its roots are deep)

And now, open your eyes and see
Rum is abundant, free
All thanks to Yggdrasil
(A shared dream, we offer you)

A million glasses raised
And there you are, an open bar
Goddess Relief Office
Will watch over you eternally

Yggdrasil, Yggdrasil
(Greatest of trees)
In Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil, Yggdrasil
(Your roots are deep)
In Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil, the tree will ever grow
For you Yggdrasil

Our friends, as we all verily know
About a year ago
They came from Yggdrasil
(A friend in need, a friend indeed)

Undead, the skeleton army lies
Asleep til again we rise
We came to Yggdrasil
(Undreamed of dream, it can happen to you)

A million zombies roaming
Came overnight, gave us a fright
And then our forces joined
In anti-zombie solidarity

Yggdrasil, Yggdrasil
(Regions will fall)
In Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil, Yggdrasil
(It was a dream)
In Yggdrasil
(Yggdrasil, Yggdrasil)

We disappear
With a loud cheer
For Yggdrasil

We disappear
And hold you dear
In Yggdrasil, Yggdrasil

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


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


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.

Ulthar Summer Solstice Festival, June 2010

The Skeleton Army came to Ulthar on the occasion of the Summer Solstice Festival, to which Da Mayor invited the fabled city’s friends.

Mayor For Life:

A party just isn’t a party without your friends. Ulthar just isn’t Ulthar without our friends. In no particular order – because I hate playing favorites – are the regions whose nations came, played, and made this our most successful festival ever.
