1 Name and Flag of the Interregional Union on Tue Nov 05, 2013 9:32 pm

This topic is to decide on a name and a flag for the interregional union.

It's going to be necessary to devise a name for this union; I have a few ideas, but none are particularly extraordinary. Among them are the New Eternity Pact (I drew this from the name of an inspirational song I featured in the "speech" I plan on presenting to the IWU to convince them to join the defense organization. In practical logic, I suppose it could refer to our formation of a "new eternity", as nothing like this interregional union has ever been formed before). Another, more basic, would simply be the Interregional Union, or the Regional League. Or the United Regions Agreement.

Now, about the flag, I actually have something in mind. A while back, Kialga asked me to make a new flag for the IWU, because the current one looks somewhat ridiculous with cartoon pictures on it. So I did, and the one I made looks quite good in my opinion. It is primarily influenced by the IWU's flag, but it differs similarly to the INU and ISU flags (the interregional flag should be based off the original IWU design, simply out of respect that the IWU is essentially the mother region where the idea for the interregional union was born). Here is the link to that flag: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I would much prefer to use that or something similar to it; I can, if necessary, touch the image up to fix some of the minor blemishes.

Let me know your thoughts on both of those.

Looks fine.

as nothing like this interregional union has ever been formed before
What about the NPO?

Maybe "United Confederation of Regions"?

And the flag looks good.

@Xin: What would NPO stand for?

@Othelos: Sounds decent, but I'd prefer not to use the word "Confederation" since we're forming a federal system. It would be somewhat contradictory.

Right.

We could just go with something simple, like the "Federation of Regions".

So far I find myself sticking with the Regional League. I like the New Eternity Pact, but I doubt many would find that a reasonable name, since it isn't very related to the actual idea.

Aside from the Regional League, we could try the Interregional League, the Regional League of Union, the League of United Regions, the United Regions Federation, the League of Regions Federation, the Regional Coalition, the Interregional Coalition.... my. This is going to be a tough decision.

I like the Interregional League. It's a bit more direct and it implies devotion and loyalty. That's just me.

@Xin: What would NPO stand for?
New Pacific Order.

How about: "The Coalition"
Sounds ominous.
I like it.

@Xin: Uggh. I hear too much about NPO.


About your suggestion, not too bad--but we don't really want to sound ominous.

I like the name "The Coalition". It can sound ominous if you want it to, but it doesn't have to.

Although, imo, that sounds better as a shorthand way to say the official name. How about the "Inter-regional Coalition"?

Works for me.

The Interregional Coalition is good. I still prefer the Interregional League, but either way, we're going to need to check with the other regions on the name, since that isn't the INU's authority alone.

Would it not be part of our plan?

I don't really know about that, because the INU plan seems it may end up as the ONLY plan.

I've always been concerned that this Inter-regional plan didn't really have any support.

It does. We voted in the IWU, and the vote was clearly in favor of joining. I believe it was around 15 to 5 or something. It's just that people don't particularly care enough in the IWU anymore to become involved in discussions. In the ISU, Rachariaa's recruitment strategy simply didn't produce active people, so it's very quiet, and in the IAU, Vasuvius doesn't want to do any recruitment and I've been devoting my time here. That said, the INU will have a lot more influence than it would seem.

Do all of you think I should hold a vote to select the most popular name? So far I would probably include the Interregional Union, the Interregional Coalition, and the Interregional League. I might include the New Eternity Pact; it has almost nothing to do with anything on NS, so it's almost certainly a downer, but I thought I might see what others think of it.

A vote might be a good idea, imo.

Hey mate, I have an idea for a name... The Interregional Commonwealth, and a flag... well I might work on something like that. But I have a lot to do from school and still a flag for the party I'm on. I'll find some time during the next 7 days.

I like the Interregional Commonwealth. This did remind me as well--we should probably take care of that vote. It's the only thing we have left to decide on for the INU plan, so once we have it finished, we'll be able to focus more directly on helping the INU grow.

And so we have decided simply on the Interregional Union.

As far as I can tell, that will conclude our discussion for the INU Plan. All we have left to do is type it up into a decent format for presentation, and we're set. The IWU's plan will be identical to the INU plan, thus combining them to eliminate an extra choice, and the ISU has already accepted the INU plan and isn't going to make an independent one. Benoslovia, who founded the IAU, is apparently in the process of composing his own plan, but I don't know how much progress has been made towards that. In any case, once the IWU is set with its new government, we'll try to get a vote set (if Benoslovia's plan is ready by then). If his isn't, the INU plan will automatically go into effect, which, as I will note to everyone, is not a rigid set of rules because, like anything else, it can be amended if everyone sees fit to do so. The IWU has already voted to join the IU, so we shouldn't have to do that again, but I'm not sure what Kialga and Abacathea will do. Even if they don't make another vote, they are likely to postpone the beginning of interregional elections and such so the IWU can do some recruitment and development to prepare itself better.

Prepare itself better? Why haven't they been doing that already?

It's because of the recent crisis. Essentially, there has been almost no recruitment there for months upon months. The IWU population has dropped from 140 to 92, which is very bad. Essentially, once the new government is in place, we will have to take some time to recruit for the IWU to get its numbers back up, largely for the fact that it has few active members as of the moment. It won't have enough active people to fill its spots in the interregional government, so (as I will most likely be the secretary of recruitment) I will be recruiting from the experienced nations to increase the active population.

The IWU now has about 10 truly active members, most of which will probably be too preoccupied to work in the interregional government. That said, probably a month will be taken after elections to get the IWU to a position to have enough active people to draw from. The IWU is a region that has formed somewhat poorly; while it has a large population, most of it is made up of nations that are constantly CTEing, which is a major problem. We're simply taking some time so we can recruit more active people to balance out that problem.

I do like to say that the INU has actually turned out in stark contrast to the IWU's problem in the population. Almost all the people in the INU are active; they may not participate, but they are online every day for the most part.
