Universal Endorsement Aid

    Endotarting is when you, as a World Assembly nation, go around to every other World Assembly nation in a region and endorse them. It's a great way to increase their influence, and the fastest way to get them to endorse you back. Some regions have limits on how many endorsements they are allowed to have. It is the responsibility of the operator to know the laws of their realm.

    You can use this utility to input your nation's name and region of residence, then recieve and organised list of all the nations you have not endorsed as of NationStates' last major update (21:00-22:30 PDT). The CalRef server runs its data updates at 01:00 PDT. Sometimes data may be old if NationStates was not able to get us data within that two and a half hour window.

    Why Endorsements Matter

      For most regions, influence is a great boon. In addition to providing you another potential gold 1% census badge, it's also a vital component of regional security.

      When a Governor ceases to exist with no successor, the region's World Assembly Delegate will inherit the former Governor's executive power. A Delegate with executive power is able to control almost all aspects of a region. Since whoever has the most endorsements is elected Delegate, a region can become hijacked by a coordinated, hostile take-over with little to no notice. In these take-overs, it is possible to lose control of the region to the point that the invaders have the ability to destroy the region and all of its posts and history, entirely.

      One saving grace is that while a Governor may ban nations for free, a Delegate with executive power must spend influence to do so, at a cost of half of what the nation they want to ban has. Consequently, the more influence a native nation has, the harder it is to ban them. Influence in non-frontier regions never decays, so the earlier you start sending and receiving endorsements, the more influence you will build up and the safer your region can be. This technique is called an Influence Fortress, and is one of the most effective ways of ensuring your region is never destroyed by invaders.
