      Cyber Nations Forum Rules   07/03/2016

        Cyber Nations Forum Rules  
      In the process of registering on this forum, all players--including you--agreed to accept these terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of Invision Power Board. In doing so you essentially signed an electronic contract pledging to have read the rules and TOS and agreeing to follow the rules and TOS as written. It is your continued responsibility to read, follow, and keep up-to-date with the CN rules.
      The following are basic guidelines for use of the Cyber Nations community forum. Anyone caught disobeying these guidelines will be issued a warning. The forum staff works on a five warn limit policy unless the situation calls for more appropriate action ranging from a verbal warning to a double warn and suspension to an immediate ban, etc.   Just because something is not listed specifically here as illegal does not mean it's allowed. All players are expected to use common sense and are personally responsible for reading the pinned threads found in the Moderation forum. Questions regarding appropriateness or other concerns can be sent via PM to an appropriate moderator.   A permanent ban on the forums results in a game ban, and vice versa. Please note that the in-game warn system works on a "three strikes you're out" policy and that in-game actions (including warnings and deletions) may not be appealed. For more information regarding in-game rules please read the Cyber Nations Game Rules.   1.) First Warning
      2.) Second Warning
      3.) Third Warning (48 hour suspension at the forum)
      4.) Fourth Warning (120 hour suspension at the forum)
      5.) Permanent Ban   Game Bans and Forum Bans
      If you receive a 100% warn level on the forums, you will be subject to removal from the forums AND have your nation deleted and banned from the game at moderator(s) discretion.   If you are banned in the game, then you will be banned from the forums.   Process of Appeals
      Players may not appeal any in-game actions. This includes cheat flags, canceled trades, content removals, warn level increases, nation deletion, and bans from the game.   Players may appeal individual forum warnings. You may only appeal a warning if you can show with evidence that it was unwarranted or unduly harsh. If a reasonable amount of time has passed (no less than one month and preferably longer) in which you have demonstrated reformed behavior than you may request a warning level reduction. Wasting staff time with inappropriately filed reports and/or unfounded appeals will result in a warn level raise. Repeat incidences will result in a ban from the forum.   Bans are permanent. Banned players may appeal to the Senior Staff if they believe grounds exist (very, very rare) in which they state their case with evidence and why explain why they believe they deserve to be allowed back into Cyber Nations. This process is not quick and the investigation into cases may last three minutes or three weeks or more depending on the individual situation.   The only place where discussion of moderator action is acceptable is in the appropriate Moderation forum. Posting commentary on or disagreement with moderator action elsewhere will result in a warn level raise.   Posting
      All posts must be in English. Common phrases in other languages will be allowed so long as they are translated upon request. Foreign languages are permitted in signatures and avatars, however.   Certain areas of the forum require you to have a nation in either standard CN or CN:TE. If you have...   A SE and a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are allowed to post in either SE or TE areas of the forum. You must have your CN:TE nation name listed in your profile to post in the CN:TE section of the forum.
      Just an SE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are not allowed to post in any TE areas of the forum.
      Just a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your TE nation name or ruler name. Your must have your CN:TE nation name listed correctly in your profile. You are not allowed to post in any of the SE areas. You are allowed to post in the water cooler, question center and the moderation forums. Other than that, all your posts need to stay in the TE area.   Flame/Flamebait/Trolling
      Flaming is expressing anger or lobbing insults at a person/player rather than a character, post, idea, etc. Flamebait are posts that are made with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking another user into rule-breaking. Trolling is submitting posts with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking a specific group into rule-breaking. Forum users should not be participating in any of these, and doing so will result in a warning.   Topic Hijacking
      Hijacking is forcing the current thread discussion off of the original topic and usually results in spam or flame from either side. Forum users found hijacking threads will be given a warning.   Repeat Topics
      One topic is enough. Repeat topics will be locked, removed, and the author given a warning. Users found creating repeat topics after others were locked by staff will receive a warn raise.   Joke Topics
      Topics created as a joke are prohibited. Joke topics will be locked and the author warned. This includes topics in which the author is making an announcement “for” another in-game alliance. Humorous threads are permitted; it is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what is merely satire and what is actually a joke topic.   Spam
      Spam is defined as creating posts or topics containing only contentless material of any kind. Users found spamming will receive a warning. Examples include (but are in no way limited to) posts containing nothing but smilies, "+1", "QFT", "this" any other one/few-word contentless combination, joke threads, or posts containing quotes and anything that counts as spam by itself. Adding words to a post with the express intent of avoiding a spam warn will result in a warning. These posts and other similar contributions have no substance and hence are considered spam. Posts of "Ave", "Hail" or any other one word congratulatory type are acceptable as one word posts. Emoticon type posts such as "o/" without accompanying text is still not allowed. Posts containing only images are considered spam, unless the image is being used in the Alliance Politics sub-forum and then the actual text of the image be placed into spoiler tags.   Posting in All Caps
      Posting large amounts of text in capital letters is not permitted. Use discretion when using your caps lock key.   No Discussion Forums
      There are forums that are not for discussion and are used strictly for game and forum staff to address certain issues, bugs, etc. The following forums are not open to discussion: Report Game Abuse, Report Forum Abuse, and Warn/Ban Appeals. Only moderators and the original poster may post in a thread, period, with absolutely no exceptions. Users found disobeying this guideline will receive an automatic warning for each offense.   Moderation Forums
      All Moderation forums also maintain pinned threads clearly marked as required reading before posting. Failure to read and follow required reading and procedure in a Moderation forum will result in a warning. Examples include posting requests in the wrong forum, failure to include all required information in posts, etc. The standard of conduct and enforcement of rules in Moderation forums is strictly enforced and the repercussions for disregarding rules or disrespecting staff are harsh. Read the pinned threads before posting and you will be fine.   Namecalling
      Excessive or unqualified namecalling is not allowed in IC forums; namecalling should also never make up the bulk of a post. Namecalling is prohibited entirely in all OOC forums.   Filtered Words
      Any attempts to evade the word filter will result in a warning. The terms we have filtered are filtered for a reason and no excuse for evasion will be accepted. Filter evasion includes censoring or deliberately misspelling part of a filtered word.   If you link to a website, image, video, etc., containing profanity, please post a disclaimer before the link. The moderation staff may still remove links if the content is deemed too obscene.   Harassment
      Forum users should not be stalking/harassing others on the forums. Anyone found stalking players from topic to topic, etc., will be subject to a warning.   Gravedigging
      Gravedigging is not allowed anywhere on the forums. Gravedigging is "bumping" old topics which haven't been active for quite some time (four to seven days is standard depending on the nature of the thread and how many pages back it had been pushed before bump). Your warn level will be raised if you are caught doing this.   The Suggestion Box and Black Market forums are partial exceptions to this rule. Suggestions/ideas in that forum may be posted in regardless of age PROVIDING that the reviving post contains constructive, on-topic input to the original topic or discussion. Black Market threads may be bumped by the author if there is new information about the offered exchange (i.e open aid slots). In the Player Created Alliances forum it will not be considered gravedigging to bump a topic up to a year old, so long as the alliance in question still exists and it is not a duplicate thread.   Signatures
      Those who fail to read and abide by these rules will have their signatures removed and receive a warning.   You may have only one image per signature which may not exceed the maximum size of 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. You may have no more than 8 lines of text and text size cannot exceed size 4. Each quote-tag, image and empty line count as a line.   Inappropriate Images and Other Disallowed Images
      Images that are sexual in nature or have sexual overtones are prohibited. It is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what constitutes sexual overtones. Depictions of kissing are permissible provided there are no sexual implications. Images depicting female nipples are prohibited outright.   Making “ASCII art” is prohibited regardless of the image depicted.   Using photos or likenesses of another Cyber Nations player is also prohibited.   Drug References
      Images and posts promoting illegal drug use are prohibited. References to drugs are acceptable only if the moderation staff deems that it is not promoting the use thereof.   Obscene Content and/or "Account Suicide"
      Anyone caught posting vulgar material (including but in no way limited to pornography, "gross," "tubgirl," "lemonparty," photos depicting RL illegal acts such as violence towards humans or animals, child pornography, death photos, and any other obscene or offensive material in either text form or picture form) will have their account(s) permanently banned, and their ISP contacted along with any other applicable internet and RL authorities.   OOC Threats / Revealing Personal Information
      An OOC threat of any nature will equate to an automatic ban from the game and forums. Likewise, the publishing of personal information of any other player without their explicit permission is grounds for warning and/or a ban from the game depending on the severity of the offense.   Death Threats / Death Wishes
      A death threat or a death wish of any nature (including but not limited to telling another player to commit suicide) will result in at very least a 40% warn level increase and 2 day suspension from the forums, with harsher punishments, including a complete ban from the forums and game, up to the discretion of the moderation staff.   Quoting Rulebreaking Posts
      Do not quote any post with obscene content or any other content that has to be removed by the moderation staff. Doing so makes it more difficult for the moderation staff to find and remove all such content and will result in a warn level increase. Putting rulebreaking posts of any kind in your signature is prohibited.   Forum Names
      With the exception of moderator accounts, all forum accounts must match up exactly with the ruler name or nation name of your in-game country. Those found not matching up will be warned and banned immediately. Forum account names may not be profane or offensive.   Multiple Forum Accounts
      With the exception of moderators, if you are caught with multiple forum accounts, the multiple account(s) will be banned, warn level raised, and your identity will be announced by a moderator to the CN community so rule-abiding players can take IC action against you. Multiple forum account offenders will receive a varying percentage warn level raise and/or a permanent ban on a case-by-case basis.   Posting For Other Players
      Posting for banned or suspended players is prohibited, as is posting for any person without a nation. This includes making warn and ban appeals on their behalf.   Imitation &. Impersonation
      Imitation in terms of this forum is mimicking the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in an attempt to be satirical or generally humorous. Impersonation in terms of this forum is copying the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in order to present the illusion that the person is in fact that user. Imitation is fine and can be quite funny. Impersonation is disruptive and is warnable. Please pay attention to the subtle difference between these two concepts.   A player may not impersonate another player by emulating the characteristics of someone else's past or present account in an attempt to harass, stalk, or flamebait. Creating a new forum account in an attempt to impersonate a standing account will result in deletion and banning without notice.   Any attempt at imitation and/or impersonation of moderators and game staff is strictly prohibited and will be met with harsh repercussions.   Avatars
      Size for avatars is limited by the forum mechanics, therefore there is no size issue for a user to worry about. Avatars must be in good taste, and any avatar containing a picture that is too violent, disgusting, sexually explicit, insulting to another player or staff member, etc. will be removed. Avatars that are potentially seizure inducing will not be permitted. Players may not "borrow" the avatars of any moderator past or present without permission.   Swastikas and Nazi Imagery
      The swastika may not be used in signatures or avatars. Pictures of swastika's are acceptable for use in the In Character (IC) sections of the roleplay forums, so long as its context is In Character, and not Out Of Character. Pictures of Hitler, mentioning of the Holocaust, etc... have no place in the roleplay forums, since these people and events existed in real life, and have no bearing or place in the Cyberverse. Other Nazi or SS imagery is forbidden in all forums.   Moderation Staff
      The revealing of the private identities of any Cyber Nations staffers past or present is strictly prohibited, and thus no speculation/accusation of identity is allowed. Doing so is grounds for moderator action against your account appropriate to the offense, including a full forum/game ban.   Claims of moderator bias should be directed to the highest level of authority--the Head Game & Forum Mod/Admin, Keelah. Claims of moderator bias without supporting evidence is grounds for a warning.   Blatant disrespect of the moderator staff is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to spoofing moderator accounts in any way, sig/avatar references, baiting, flaming, rude demands, mocking, attitude, and unsubstantiated claims of bias. They are volunteers hired to enforce the rules. If you have a problem with the way a moderator is enforcing the rules or the rules themselves please contact Keelah.   Attempting to use the moderation staff as a weapon by abusing the report system in an attempt to get another player warned or banned is strictly prohibited.   Do not ask about becoming or campaign to become a moderator. The moderators are drawn from CN membership but moderation positions are by invitation only. Asking to become one will substantially decrease your chances of ever being asked.   Aiding Rule Violators
      Any user found to know of a serious rule violation without reporting it to a game moderator (eg. knowledge of a user with multiple nations) will be given a warning or, in more serious cases, have their nation deleted.   Aiding Banned Players
      Any user found to be harboring, aiding or otherwise knowingly helping a banned user will be deleted. This includes knowing of their existence within the game without reporting it to the game-moderation staff.   Questionable Actions and Content
      The forum rules are not designed to cover every scenario. Any action that is seen to be counter-productive or harmful to the forum community may be met with moderator action against your account. The Cyber Nations Moderation Staff reserves the right to take action against your account without warning for any reason at any time.   Private Transactions
      Nation selling and other private transactions via such auction sites like eBay is against the Cyber Nations terms and conditions. While our moderators cannot control what people do outside of the game you are not allowed to promote such private exchanges on our forums without expressed permission from admin only. Anyone found to be engaging in such activity without permission will be banned from the game.   Advertising
      Advertising other browser games and forums is prohibited. Soliciting donations towards commercial causes is also prohibited. If you wish to ask for donations towards a charitable cause, please contact a moderator before doing so.   Extorting Donations
      Donations are excluded from any kind of IC payment. Anyone found extorting others for OOC payments will be warned in-game and/or banned.   Third Party Software
      Third party software is not allowed to be advertised on these forums by any means (post, signature, PM, etc). These programs can easily be used to put malware on the user's computer, and as such can cause huge security issues. Anybody who is caught spreading links to these will at the very least have their warning level increased.   Other Forum Terms & Rules   Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below.

Libertarian Socialists and early Producerists meet, circa Spring 2014

 

The roots of Producerism began in early 2014, following the end of the Disorder War. Having been removed from my position as Hand in House Baratheon, I was free to devote my energy to ideological development. Forming the Revolutionary Order of Cybernations, I managed to pull together about 15 nation leaders ranging from both left and right on the ideological scale. Our discussions regarding Francoism and the state of Cybernations helped shape the early development of Producerism.

 

After I joined LoSS, some of us managed to resurrect the SHADOWS... an old elite MILCOM unit separate from the chain of command... although at that point in time, we only had a handful of volunteers. We transferred the SHADOWS to the post-merger Supernova X, which grew to about two dozen members. the SHADOWS became both an elite military force as well as state security organization. We struck at rogues who targeted our allies, and developed dossiers on hostile adversaries. Because of our earlier discussions, we also signed with the Libertarian Socialist Federation.

Unfortunately, the SHADOWS was suppressed by the Triumvirate, and I was sent into exile by the corrupt government. We lost alot of good operatives in the Doom War, but a few loyalists remained during the months that followed.

 

Producerism was finally implemented in a formal fashion during the July Revolution of Supernova X, during July 2015. As a result of the Revolution, the early beginnings of the modern Imperium established a Transitional State by popular Referendum. Former SHADOWS operatives formed the mid-level backbone of the new Producerist State, while Galerion and Edward Graceford became new recruits and earned a place in senior leadership.

Micro leaders meet at the SNX forums and discuss Producerism, circa Summer 2016

 

The Post-Revolutionary government took it's current form during the January Referendum, which established an Order-style Imperial Command. In the months that followed, numerous wars took place, however following each war the Imperium fine-tuned it's doctrine and expanded the Interstellar Program to more free Nations. Following the Second War on Terror, which began as a result of yet another war of aggression by Monsters Inc and Methrage, a peace treaty was established between Producerists and Libertarians which finally brought peace and unity to the Brown Team.

Libertarian Party of Cybernations guerrillas, circa December 2016

 

Libertarians and Producerists agreed on several common ideological traits, such as the importance of alliance sovereignty, the cautious use of Brown Team sanctions, and the need for cooperation between independent alliances. With the increasing prevalence of rogues and destabilizing actors, Libertarians and Producerists work together closely to secure and monitor the Brown Team. The LPCN militias combined with the formidable strength of the Imperium will pose a significant deterrence to future shenanigans.

As we march forward from the lessons learned during the last three years, we find ourselves more certain and resolute than ever: Producerism (and Libertarianism) has been proven a success despite the repeated attempts of our enemies to destroy us, both inside and out. We find ourselves in a unique position to study the wisdom of earlier Revolutionary leaders, while our feet remain grounded in the reality of the present.

 

We each have in our hand a pen, we need only to write the destiny of the future.

"There are two kinds of people: those who contribute towards the Imperial Truth, and those who rebel against it."

Producerism is the Imperial Truth of our Imperium. It is developed from years of experience in this world, and ultimately has it's roots in the 2003 Revolution in which that other realm's feederites overthrew the exploitative foreign userites.

The first accurate analysis of this world was written by Vladimir in 2007, and can be viewed on our forum here: http://cn-snx.co.uk/index.php?/topic/328-the-meaning-of-freedom-a-guide-to-cn-govt/

Vladimir addressed the metaphysics of this world, and the importance of the alliance in protecting the interests of nations who come together as a single body.

Producerism builds upon this analysis by interpreting the specific material conditions of the world today, from July 2015 onwards. While it began as a revolution of our oppressed nations against internal subversion and foreign attack, the importance of our ideology has global ramifications.

We are the first alliance to formally accept that the world is in a state of decline. Inactive alliance governments are prevalent, and the number of nuclear rogues are on the rise, as we see with Emperor Khan.

The solution then?

As Vladimir stated, the strength of the sovereign is a literal matter of life and death for the individual nation. This is all too true today, where we see many alliances under attack from rogues and ad-hoc coalitions who have the sole purpose of destroying the creativity of productive nations.

The rogue, when he attacks one alliance, is at war with all civilization.

As Defenders of Civilization, then, it is our duty to bring active nations into the fold. There are too many active nations dwelling near the state of nature, incapable of achieving their full potential.

We must spread Producerism, the Imperial Truth, to more active nations to ensure the survival of the Imperium and of civilization as a whole. It is our disciplined mindset and accurate material analysis that has enabled us to survive over the years against the odds, and the more active members and confederates we have, the better we are able to defend ourselves.

In the end, the Imperium will only save civilization, and ourselves, by pursuing our militant struggle in both peace and war.

PRODUCERISM: A PRIMER FOR NEW NATIONS

 

For new nations in today's world, it is sometimes difficult to make heads or tails of being a nation-ruler. Being bombarded by dozens of recruitment messages, it is very easy to make an uninformed decision which can lead to disastrous consequences for your nation. These consequences can range from being dragged into meaningless wars, to going without strong nations to protect you in the <10,000 NS range, to unknowingly being exploited as a tech slave.

 

Producerism as an ideology is largely concerned with the welfare of new nations that might otherwise be driven from this world in despair, unaware of the rights they should be enjoying. These rights include the following:

 

  1. The right to be adequately compensated for tech production
  2. The right to peace and security against foreign aggression
  3. The right to be fully educated about the history of societal development in Cybernations
  4. The right to pursue one's full potential as a nation ruler in an alliance

 

To ensure these rights are protected, Producerism proposes the following responsibilities for alliances that recruit new nations:

 

  1. That the alliance outlaw the exploitation of tech producers
  2. That the alliance focus on a military-first policy and protect new nations
  3. That the alliance leadership promote classical and contemporary works on CN's societal development
  4. That the alliance raise members above the state of nature to pursue a full range of civilized development

 

These rights should be pursued by nations of all alliances, regardless of color team, size, or stage of societal development. While the development (and degeneration) of every alliance is a historical process, through education, any active nation may achieve full productive consciousness and promote the societal development of his or her alliance internally. The informed alliance member becomes the vessel for change that pushes the alliance towards the full development of autocratic democracy.

 

Autocratic democracy is a system of government in which the revolutionary leader channels the collective will of his comrades within the alliance, and propels the now-united membership towards the final stage of societal development. This has historically occurred during times of great upheaval within an alliance, such as under the pressure of a war of extermination by foreign invaders. This final stage of development transcends the internal disunity and chaos which held back the potential of the alliance and its members in the past.

 

Thus freed from the state of nature, the alliance can now act in the comprehensive interests of all of its membership, not a handful of plutocratic nations and foreigners who have manipulated policy in the past.

Supernova X at 10,000,000 Nation Strength, September 2014



At a time when much of the world languished in barbarism and chaos, the formation of Supernova X provided hope to four dying civilizations who attempted to create a sum greater than its parts. MCXA, LoSS and GDA in particular were very old alliances that contained the fading light of civilization preserved as it once was... possessing an atmosphere of civility and respect.



It was no surprise then that when Supernova X was formed it immediately attracted the attention of barbarian warlords from distant regions on the treaty web. Although some members realized the threat the barbarians would pose, the majority went about their daily lives like ordinary civilians, unaware or uncaring about the invasion being prepared.



It was said that the Imperium would never fall to foreign armies; but unfortunately, it could fall by its own hand. Over the next several months, bureaucratic infighting and bad leadership degraded the SNX military and the government became a circus.

The weakened Imperium military is crushed by enemy forces during the Doom War



During the Doom War, a massive assault was launched against Supernova X after the government failed to resolve a minor military incident involving a Supernova X nation. The war that followed lead to most Imperium worlds coming under siege, with government hiding in peacemode. The few worlds that fought suffered poor morale, lack of logistical support and overwhelming enemy hordes.



Internally, this would trigger a crisis that lead to the formation of an autocracy centered around the same elite that previously controlled through a corrupt democracy. Soon after, a major split occurred after an attempted coup by mid-level officers against this elite, which was suppressed. These officers fled to distant space, forming the Black Knights which later failed.



Over the following several months the Imperium would continue to deteriorate, with more than half of Imperium space lost. The remaining Imperium territory was weakly held, with almost no state presence. Piracy and corruption would plague the majority of the Imperium by July.

July Revolutionaries establish the Strategic Command and Revolutionary Guard



In July the dying Imperium was hit with some bad news: New Polar Order, the last treaty partner of Supernova X, was cancelling. Barbarian forces immediately began preparing for raids into Imperium territory. But having learned the lesson of the Doom War, the membership of Supernova X was not just going to submit to another rolling.



Across many Imperium worlds, both the masses and military forces rose up against the corrupt former government. In desperation, Masterchief777 attempted to establish a provisional government to suppress this revolution, but to no avail... the newly formed Unified Command expelled him from the alliance.



As news of the revolution spread, the attackers panicked and immediately organized a genocidal effort against Supernova X, demanding that the Imperium be destroyed. However, the new Military Command (MILCOM) centered government quickly fell into place, organizing the conventional military under Strategic Command, and the paramilitary militias under the Revolutionary Guard. By the end of "Shark Week" the Imperium had survived and finally ratified a workable system based on the value of the producer.

The New Imperium fortifies its members against further barbarian incursions



On November 3rd, Supernova X would defeat Masterchief777 and rescue numerous nations that were lead by the traitor down the wrong road. It would prove itself capable offensively on short order in regional conflicts. The redesigned Unified Command along with strict classification guidelines were critical in ensuring Operational Security (OPSEC) was preserved during the planning of the offensive.



The fact that the Imperium thrives today... let alone is still standing... is a testament to the courage and sacrifice of average members of Supernova X finally given the opportunity to achieve freedom of potential. Today we are only a fragment of our former glory, but we are hardened by the experiences of the past and expanding at an unprecedented rate. The key to this is our superior culture and civilization, where values like honor, respect and chivalry still live.

(Disclaimer: this speech was made after consuming a few beers, and if an alliance leader doesn't occasionally drink beer while playing CN, they are failing at life)

((This speech is dedicated to Dajobo, who I found to be an inspiring leader and a great friend ever since I returned to CN in 2013. He is currently in the hospital and I ask that all others share my prayers for his swift healing. He has a warriors heart and I have no doubt that he will defeat his ailments in short order.))

As the Imperium enters the first month of revolution, the signs of our rejuvenation are clear to all Nations. In less than a month our aid slot usage has surpassed the goals of our 5 month plan, and, being purged of parasites, SNX is experiencing an economic miracle. Although I made some speeches and cool looking pictures, this miracle is not due to myself but to the countless nations in SNX and abroad followed the Way and contributed to our final victory.

This struggle began back in 2014 with the foundation of the Revolutionary Order Party. At the time I had been cast out of the Hand of the King position in House Baratheon; destitute and homeless, I created the Party to advance the ideals I believed in: the rising of the producer class and the return of Order to cybernations. Eventually, LoSS accepted me as a member, and my ideals became incorporated into the reconstituted SHADOWS unit.

As commander of the SHADOWS unit in LoSS, I pushed for raid-recruitment and the concentration of the most valuable alliance members into a military meritocracy. I rewrote the constitution of LoSS to reflect the principles I had condensed in the Revolutionary Order Party, and we prepared for our transition into the new Supernova X alliance.

Unfortunately, as a non-government member of LoSS I had no part in the writing of the Supernova X charter... however, due to my services in LoSS I was appointed a founding Senator of the post-merger alliance. My appointment came under immediate fire of reactionaries across the world who feared my vision for the alliance. I suspect many, in mocking me, in reality feared my vision for Supernova X, and were not willing to sacrifice their "ideals" of democracy and divided government to advance the Imperium.

As SNX Senator, I became close to Polar, especially Emperor Dajobo, and found myself appreciating his rare sense of honor and kindness in a cold and exploitative world. It shouldn't be a surprise therefore that I was in almost-daily communication with him, seeking to align SNX with the New Polar Order. When I was later expelled unjustly by the corrupt court of SNX, he vouched for me and brought me into Polar at great personal political expense.

Now, previously in CN I had learned from individuals like Ivan Moldavi and Vladimir regarding leadership ideals... Ivan stressed things like discipline, while Vladimir had stressed ideology. Dajobo stressed caring for ones members, and it impressed me how far Dajobo went in ensuring all his members were care for and heard from. He later confided in me that he picked this up from Emperor Electron Sponge, but I do think it was a character quality, and it is one I try to emulate to this day... not just looking at the organization as a unit, but helping every member to achieve this potential. I was lucky to have these leaders "show me the way" in discipline, ideology and caring over the years before returning to SNX in July.

In any case, over the months as I predicted it would, SNX degenerated until I finally returned in July at the prompting of several senior members, and I arrived in a disorganized Imperium robbed by many months of corruption and manipulation on the part of the close circle of corrupt officials. Several members, including Edward Graceford who would eventually become my second in command, opposed my return, stirred up by the malice of Masterchief777.

However, when I moved out the duplicitous acts of the former government, including secret charter changes, to the full view of the membership, popular opinion swiftly changed to support my revolution. It was at this point that many members who had opposed me now fully supported this revolution. It was also at this point that the "raids" began against SNX, in my opinion, primarily to preserve the status quo, that SNX should die a death of inactivity and ineptitude. Our members received mass-PMs declaring the illegitimacy of my return, declaring that they should desert from SNX to join a traitor.

Many of you cannot imagine the emotion I have writing this part of the post. Many times throughout the past I have been scorned and spurned, spit on and lied against. I was told that my return to SNX was futile and would be mocked in the end. Yet these members who had so little to give, so small in stature, were giving their all, standing beside me and nuking the raiders, refusing to capitulate in the face of almost-certain defeat. I had earned nothing from these members, and yet in support of my vision, they were standing to the end, in a way no one else ever did. At this point I must recount the names of these Heroes of the Revolution, because when I thought I would stand alone against the world, they stood with me:

Edward Graceford

Lemac

Galerion

ZZniperr

Pendragon

AvengerFin

Pamacii

Uncle Don

Strider Yoshi

Humann

Blind Cyclops

SaudiGamer123

These members stood next to me, willing to fight to the last breath, and to them I will have eternal gratitude. It was their courage in the face of mountains of propaganda and military might that made SNX's success today possible. There is only one word that can express this incredible loyalty: love.

HISTORY OF THE 5 MONTH PLAN

During the First Imperium as a Founding Senator of Supernova X, it was my pleasure to write the first 5 month plan. This plan called for concrete goals of production that would hold the old ministries accountable for progress. These goals of production included increasing our nuclear deterrence, general military preparedness, membership recruitment, low-tier industrialization and aid slot usage improvement.

Unfortunately, although the plan met wide-spread approval, as a Senator I lacked the means to make enforcement mandatory. In a cynical manner the Triumvirate claimed that my plan interfered with their executive powers over the ministries and refused to implement it. This jealousy culminated in political actions taken by the Triumvirate and Court against myself and my supporters in the SHADOWS; and the ministers, pleased to be left unaccountable, allowed the Imperium to stagnate.

This lead to the tragedy of the last great war, our apathetic military performance, the attempted coup by Flubb and his cohorts, and a series of events that lead directly to increased corruption and the raids that triggered the July Revolution.

Our alliance has experienced unbearable humiliation abroad and the massive decline in our military and political strength, a decline of more than 75% of our membership count and 80% of our nationstrength since our conception. Therefore with defiance and iron resolution, we commit ourselves to the implementation of the new Imperium of Supernova X, expressed by the democratic mandate of the July Referendum; and the execution of the Second 5 Month Plan.

Guided by the principles of Self Reliance, Democratic Autocracy and Membership Obligation, we will guide the New Imperium to rejuvenation and unparalled glory.

SELF RELIANCE

The principle of self-reliance is at the core of the rejuvenation of Supernova X. As expressed by IR 300-2:

Production must take a disciplined form; growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell. Therefore officer ranks will be established to provide discipline and guidance within the Producerist masses, promote Self Reliance, and promote industrialization and militarization of the alliance.

Also expressed by IR 300-2:

Producerism holds that the productive alliance member is the primary measure of value and that producers should enjoy the most influence in an alliance. Production is defined as any activity which advances the interests of the Imperium. Every alliance member is capable of becoming an active producer and, furthermore, expected to do so.

Therefore, in establishing Self Reliance we must enforce discipline in activity and growth. According to IR 320-1:

Members of Supernova X are expected to be active and adhere to producerist guidelines of National industrialization and militarization. The necessity of these guidelines are apparent upon reviewing our history of prior military inadequacy and weak wartime leadership.

Therefore, in accordance with the mandate of the July Revolution, the Second 5 Month Plan will enforce the principle of Self Reliance among member nations.

Self Reliance begins as a National concept, but extends also into alliance military strategy, and finally into the producerist ideology of the Imperium.

On the individual level, the Self Reliant Nation is economically and militarily robust, with high aid slot usage, a robust warchest at the higher tiers, and the capacity to produce for the alliance in a variety of ways. The Self Reliant nation is capable of fighting foreign adversaries independently, establishing active nuclear deterrence, and boasting a full complement of spies and military wonders.

On the collective level, Self Reliance is represented by a strong social organism, a healthy and well-regulated community within the alliance. An alliance divided is like a collection of arms and legs left to their own devices. Instead, the Self Reliant alliance is united by three levels: The common membership, which represents the arms and legs; the bureaucracy, which represents the nervous system; and the Imperium Command, which is the guiding mind of the alliance. Only when these three elements are in complete accord can an alliance be called Self Reliant.

On the ideological level, Self Reliance is represented by producerism itself. Through the idea that every member must contribute to the alliance, and that every one of us is subordinate to the needs of the whole, the alliance will reject the exploitation and degeneration of the past. Through the idea of collective service we will become efficient in the future. As producerism comes to represent the culture of the alliance, it must follow that the alliance will become stronger and more dynamic.

Through these means will the following ends be accomplished.

GOALS OF PRODUCTION

By December of 2015 we will have accomplished or exceeded the following goals:

  • Consistent 50% aid slot usage
  • 1000 reliable nuclear weapons
  • Universal upper tier EMP and WRC wonders
  • Universal low tier industrialization and militarization
  • Maintaining a tech producer surplus
  • Maintaining a 40+ member balance while accomplishing the above

PRODUCTION DOCTRINE

UPPER TIER RESILIENCY

The upper tier remains the most vulnerable wing of Supernova X. This is due to our limited number of nations in the 60,000+ Nation Strength range. Multiple other alliances have much stronger and more numerous upper tiers, therefore our upper tier will serve primarily as a logistics (banking reserves) for the alliance. The primary objective of our upper tier nations should NOT be increasing nationstrength, infrastructure or technology levels (besides improving tech/infra ratio), which tends to bump nations into the range of powerful top tier combatants. Instead, the goal should be the accumulation of EMP and WRC wonders and large warchests in the multi-billion dollar range. Recruitment of upper tier nations will be LOW priority.

LOWER TIER INDUSTRIALIZATION

The recruitment emphasis of SNX should be in the low-tier. Tech producers are in high demand throughout the world, and thus the more tech producers SNX has, the more appealing we will be seen as treaty partners. Low-tier members are strongly discouraged from leaving tech-seller status, and are instead encourage to continue profitable tech selling and the building of economic and military wonders. Low tier nations are strongly discouraged from building beyond 3999 infra (the level necessary to build a Manhattan Project).

The ideal Self Reliant tech producing Nation rests below 4000 infra, and pursues the development of a full complement of spies (550) along with the development of the following wonders: Foreign Aid Commission, Stock Market. By the time the low tier nation reaches 1999 infrastructure these wonders should be developed, as they provide rapid economic growth. Upon reaching 2999 infrastructure, nations should have a satisfactory collection of economic wonders, depending on individual situations. At this level 550 spies should be purchased.

Reaching 3999 infrastructure is the top priority of low tier nations, along with basic economic wonders. The Manhattan Project should be immediately pursued, followed by CIA and further spies, Strategic Defense Initiative, and the Pentagon. Further military and economic wonders along with a robust warchest can be further developed.

MEMBERSHIP DISPLACEMENT

Following the raids which established the July Revolution, a 50 Nation membership balance remained after numerous members deserted when all hope was lost. This actually came to serve the minimalist structure that replaced the old ministries, as 50 members is an easily managed number. Therefore, as recruitment occurs, rather than pursuing explosive membership growth, new members should displace inactive nations and those which are guilty of excessive disciplinary infractions. According to IR 320-1:

By consensus the CO, XO and CRG may decide to expel members guilty of excessive disciplinary infractions without the need to post a membership vote.

Thus, records should be maintained of member infractions, and those that do not comply with orders or producerist guidelines should be expelled to make room for active new members who comply. In this way, during the following 5 months, new blood will rejuvenate the Imperium and promote the tendency of Self Reliance and producerism among the current members. Only when discipline and activity is established among the vast majority of Imperium nations, and there are enough officers serving to support disciplined membership expansion, should dramatic expansion beyond the current 50 member balance take place.
