Festival of the Three Perfections!

TWP held its second-ever Festival of the Three Perfections from February 23rd to March 1st, inviting any and all members of the NationStates community to participate. The festival’s main event were the contests of Poetry (Limericks, Haiku, and Free Verse), Art (Graphic Design, Photography, and Sketches & Paintings), and Writing (Short Stories, Essays, and Handwriting.) With over a hundred nations attending and over a hundred submissions ranging from skillful photographs of beautiful scenery to snarky limericks, it was a smashing success.

February Elections in TWP


Our first round of elections for the year took place over February 19th to 22nd on the regional forums, with voting open to all citizens of the region. This round of voting saw the most participation we’ve had in recent times (very likely the most ever), with over 40 votes in the Deputy Minister of WA/R election. Compare that to the May 2019 election, in which the most voted-upon election poll only counted 28 votes!

This was also the first election held under Bran’s ministry realignment this month, in which the roles of many government positions were changed, merged, and/or clarified. Previously, all TWP minister roles (besides Minister of Foreign Affairs) were elected positions, but starting with this election cycle, the deputy officials serving under the ministers are the ones going through the process, while the ministers will be handpicked by the delegate.

Results:
Speaker of the Hall:
Giovanniland (Elected)- 27
Sensorland- 9
Varanius- 2

Deputy Minister of Cultural Affairs:
Recuecn (Elected)- 31
Mystic Skies- 7

Deputy Minister of World Assembly & Recruitment:
Sensorland (Elected)- 26
The Unified Missourtama States- 15

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs:
Gryphonian Alliance (Elected)- 35

Congratulations to all officials elected!

The West Pacific held its inaugural Rugby World Cup this February, in which 18 nations competed for a chance to win fame and glory. Hertfordshire and Jammbo triumphed over Fujai in a 13-3 match to win the championship, and Giovanniland took third place over Dalimbar, scoring 6-3. With the great turnout and smooth running of the Rugby World Cup, plans for future tournaments of other sport events are being considered.
