Portraits of Delegates

Welcome to this thingy!

Basically, it’s just pictures of Delegates. The idea was taken (with permission) from HEM, whose original version for Europeia can be found here. Just thought it’d be a cool thing to try and mimic!

This is an official project under the Ministry of Publishing, mainly so that if I CTE or ascend to a higher plane, someone else from the government can take care of this (hopefully). If you have any suggestions for pictures or format, questions, comments, etc, reach out to me on Discord (derp#9479) or Nationstates Zukchiva. I dont bite! (PLEASE reach out if you see any inaccuracies!)

Listed time periods:

  • Atlantic Alliance Leaders (2003): The Atlantic Alliance was an imperialist organization during early NationStates. They are supposed to be the ones who founded the East Pacific as a passworded UCR trophy when the other Pacifics first started appearing as Game-Created Regions. The AA lost the region to the Farkers a few days before TEP became a GCR.
  • Farker Leaders (2003): The Farkers were one of the earliest and most prolific raiding groups in NationStates. After obtaining the East Pacific’s password from a leak, they seized the region from the AA. When TEP became a GCR, the Farkers succeeding in holding the region despite attacks. The East Pacific’s first forum was created during that time.
  • Early Government Leaders (2003 - 2008): 1 Infinite Loop, the last and main Farker Delegate, decided to form a legal government for the East Pacific - ratified as the Articles of Confederation in October 2003. A heavily RP-style form of government, it was replaced in 2004 with the Charter - a simplified constitution more in line with usual GP-based ones of the modern day.
  • Leaders Under The Empire (2008 - 2009): In 2008, a small group of players known as “The Empire” couped the East Pacific. As a result, a new government called “The Elders” was formed by native TEPers to first cooperate and later oppose the Empire.
  • “Old” Concordat Leaders (2008 - 2020): When the Empire left in December 2008, a new constitution called the Concordat was formed with a structure focused on more elections and accountability. This was an era of unparalleled stability for the East Pacific, although the region did face many challenges like community tensions in 2014, the Aelitia pre-trials in 2016, and the Fedele coup attempt in 2019.
  • “New” Concordat Leaders (2020 - Present): Following Fedele’s coup attempt in 2019, a proposed rewrite to the Concordat repealed and replaced the Concordat with a “New Concordat”, although this change is no longer legally recognized following amendments passed post-Concordat Crisis of 2022. It is the current era we exist in and has been characterized by a focus on internal unification, community building, and building of foreign relations.
Important notes
  • Dates with an ^ mean that the stated date may be inaccurate
  • Interim Delegate means a Vizier appointed to serve as temporary Delegate by the elected Delegate
  • Acting Delegate means a Vizier appointed by the Magisterium to serve as temporary Delegate.
  • Term means the period of months an individual was supposed to serve as Delegate. Terms were initially six months starting from the Concordat, but they were lessened to four months sometime around 2014-2015. Individuals who are listed without terms are to be assumed that they did not serve on a term-basis.
  • Suggestions for pictures are welcome~
  • Topic is purposefully locked to prevent posting.
  • Most images lack credit because they’re either someone’s profile picture or I did not seek to include credit when I first launched this project.
  • The Atlantic Alliance leaders were not necessarily leaders of the AA, just TEP while the AA controlled TEP. Same goes for the Farkers.

Delegate Allegheny

3rd Delegate (One term)
Seventh Head of Government

September 15th, 2010^ to April 1st, 2011

Delegate A Mean Old Man

They are capable, active, and committed. Ex oriente lux!”

~ Ramaeus during his inaugural speech.

Delegate Xoriet

“The Ocelempress”
10th Delegate (One term)
Fourteenth Head of Government

October 30th, 2014 to March 5th, 2015

The South Pacific can rest assured that The East Pacific as a region, and particularly its government, will always do its utmost to safeguard and respect the sovereignty of other regions, especially of its allies and fellow Game Created Regions. As Delegate it is my sincere hope that, in a not too distant future, The South Pacific will agree to once more enhance the diplomatic relations between our two governments and their Citizens, in common trust and respect.”

Delegate McStooley

14th Delegate (Two terms)
Eighteenth Head of Government

March 11th, 2016 to October 10th, 2016

“Compromises must be made of both parties, but depending on the situation, one group will trump the other in who’s case is right, based on TEP law. Communication is key though. Once communication stops, everything else will break down. This will cause unnecessary animosity between the Conclave and the Magisterium. That is not acceptable. We are all on the same team.”

~ McStooley during his Delegacy campaign, on issues between the Magisterium and the Conclave.

Acting Delegate Todd McCloud
Interim Delegate | 2nd Acting Delegate

~ Todd apologizing for accidentally bypassing McStooley in endorsements.

17th Delegate (One term)

I’m open to further suggestions and development of this campaign. What I’m good at is organization. (And if I don’t win this election, I’ll still stay active here like usual.

Delegate Fedele

“The Fedelegate”
19th Delegate (Three terms)
Twenty-Third Head of Government

October 21st, 2018 to October 15th, 2019

“It was considered at the time, if I remember correctly, that trying to get meaningful reform of the Vizier role through the Magisterium would expend far too much political capital. Not intending to run for re-election, I suppose I may as well use whatever political capital I have in my pockets toward compelling the Magisterium to draft a more permanent fix.”

~ Fedele pushing for Vizier reform in the Magisterium.

“New” Concordat Leaders (2020 - Present)

Twenty-Fifth Head of Government

“Administration of Libertanny is planning on continuing the idea of Marrabuk’s administration and also implementing it. The Consortium is an idea for WA - Military - Diplomatic Bloc of The East Pacific and selected User Created Regions. This, however, does not place The East Pacific as “overlord” and UCRs as “puppets”. Such bloc such be built on the basis of equality and cooperation.”

Delegate Zukchiva

“It is undeniable that the Vice-Delegacy serves a purpose. However, it is a part of our elections that threatens to change if not harm our Delegacy. Ultimately, it is up to every citizen to ask themselves whether the Vice-Delegacy is worth it. Are the benefits worth the risks? Is a right hand person worth an altered democracy?"

~ Zukchiva’s campaign.

Delegate The Atlae Isles

“The Delegatlae”
23rd Delegate (One Term)
Twenty-Seventh Head of Government

June 15th, 2021 to October 15th, 2021

“My campaign was quite ambitious, and I do intend to fulfill it the best way I can. It’s much easier to opine on what can be changed than it is to create a new system from the ground up. But I truly believe that with all of you reading this, we can accomplish all this together and leave this glorious region that we all love in a better place than we found it.”

~ Atlae’s inauguration speech.

Twenty-Eighth Head of Government

October 15th, 2021 to June 15th, 2022

~ Albrook regarding an insult made to the East Pacific’s ally, Thaecia.

Delegate Aivintis

25th Delegate (One Term)
Twenty- Ninth Head of Government

June 15th, 2022 to October 15th, 2022

“After years of non-hostile yet neutral relations between The East Pacific and Lazarus, the regions have found within each other a sense of friendship. The East Pacific has remained incredibly impressed with the work that Ellenburg and the Lazerene administration have accomplished, a perfect example being the recent Nday event. This, in turn, sparked interest in further relations, which resulted in the historic Elysium Compact. The East Pacific remains excited to continue to grow our relations, even outside the legal sense, with Lazarus, a region we see not only as an ally but as a friend to the East.”

~ Aivintis’s statement regarding a treaty signed between the East Pacific and Lazarus.
