And so much more!

It is important that we all work together and help each other if we are going to keep The Last Republic strong and safe. In order to do that we need everyone to do their duty. Some TLR members seem to be complacent to just be a member and they do very little to pay back the alliance for the real protection that comes with belonging to this awesome alliance. It is a place to belong, but as with any society, it's not a free ride There are many opportunities and things you can do to help the alliance be successful. Go check out the positions list

in the forum Employment Office and also the department employment ads. Opportunities exist in all departments. If you are interested in something just ask a Council member and they can point you in the right direction. Once you have graduated and have some experience it time to pass that knowledge on, so sign up to be a mentor and assist new nations in growing and learning. wiki/The_Last_Republic since the beginning of time and here are some recent numbers from his stat sheet.

We all need to work hard and give back. It doesn't matter how you serve because time there is truly something for everyone to do. I personally encourage each and every one of you to get involved. You will be glad you did!

The Last Republic isn't a parking place for your nation. Our alliance offers protection from attack, a venue to receive reparations when you've been attacked, and it offers you

S po t l i g h t o n a De pa r t m e n t : M i l c o m One of the most important aspects of any alliance is an effective and efficient military. TLR is very pleased to have two great leaders who will help us be prepared to defend and protect TLR: General Feibelman and Colonel Bernhard Klein have reorganized the new department into these squads. Squad Commander - Alpha *NightHawk (0 to 4K NS) Squad Commander - Bravo *carter0912 (4K to 10K NS) Squad Commander - Charlie *Stock Hunter (10K to 24K NS)

War Guide located here

Squad Commander - Delta *Black Arrow (>24K NS) There will be a monthly check in for all nations. This is mandatory for all nations. Those who do not check in on the forum will receive a 20% WARN.

Feibelman Âť June 18th, 2012, 8:38 pm TLR HAS ENTERED ORANGE THREAT LEVEL ORANGE: Elevated Alert. The threats to TLR have been increased to a dangerous level and/or an alliance war could possibly involve us in the near future. War machinery takes precedence over all other matters. You should have max nukes and required warchest.

IRC and Skype We would like to invite all members to join us on IRC and Skype. There is a guide to joining IRC in the guide section on the forum. Those of us who are on IRC: Please beware who is in a channel that you talk on. Loose lips sink ships.

That said, IRC is a great way to meet people from other alliances. Be sure your ruler name is your IRC name with TLR in brackets at the end. This way everyone will know who you are and what alliance you are in.

Skype is another meeting place for our alliance. We have 30 members there and it is a fun way to get to know members, ask questions, and just have fun. Look me up: sojournercn

This is mpetes at the Canadian Corner given you the scoop!

I will be interviewing Kem from Nuclear Proliferation League. I have recently gotten to know them through my FA work for TLR and now its time for everyone to get the scoop on this great alliance. What makes NPL, NPL? Our love for nukes, comradeship, and our loyalty to our allies. Who do you think is the hardest working member in your alliance? I wouldn't say any of are harder working, we're a team and we all play a role. Who would you say is NPL's spam master? King Wally, he's got the highest post count Do you guys play any other games together outside of CN? There's a group of us who play MW3 on the PS3 Who would you say is the funniest in the alliance? Myself, Smurth, and Wally are all really spicing at times. I like to say I am, but it's debatable. We all are quite crude and witty. Now who would you say is the most strict disciplined one? Definitely Smurth. He doesn't take any shit! Should a zombie apocalypse happen what 3 items would you have with you? .50 cal DE, a shovel, and ak-47 Who would you say you are closest to in the alliance? Eh, I'm extremely close with a lot. Wally and Smurth because we serve together on our FA team. That concluded our interview I would like go give a special thanks to Kem and NPL for this opportunity to interview them. This is mpetes at the Canadian Corner given you the scoop! o/ TLR

Employment “Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.” Chauncey Depew

“A diplomat is a person who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip.” anonymous
