I am called Isles de Taylor as I am called Taylor and I liked the name of Ile de France. I just removed the France and I replaced it with my name. I also decided that I needed to sound more British so, yes, that's why I am called Isles de Taylor.

That sounds lovely but, I was asking about ten thousand islands.

The 10000 Islands name origins I don't know. I could ask the delegate if you like.

The next day, I received a letter addressed to Sgt. Gary Toohard.[/align]

Seeing as nobody actually knows who founded the region, nobody knows the answer to that question either. So all we can do is speculate that it has either to do with the RL group of islands called "Ten thousand islands" off the coast of southwest Florida, or somebody misspelled the salad dressing.

Thanks for the compliments!

I have a message to pass on from Louisistan, WA Delegate from 10000 Islands.

[align=center]
The World Assembly Delegate for 10000 Islands[/align]
A Statement on “Liberate California”:

This past weekend, notorious invader General Knot has presented a draft to the Security Council, in which he claims that the Ten thousand Islands Treaty Organisation (TITO) is in the process of passwording the region of California without native consultation. This is blatantly untrue. The long-time natives of California have been involved in all discussions regarding the fate of California. General Knot has yet to present the Council with evidence to the contrary. Of the three native nations he lists, two have sadly CTE and are thus unable to testify as to their involvement, while the third one left California during the last occupation, quite probably in frustration about the continued attacks on their homeland.

Outside the actual draft, but inside the drafting thread, Knot goes on to accuse TITO and the Yggdrasil Defence Service (YDS) of trying to refound California in order to keep it as a trophy. This completely ignores historic facts. Whenever TITO was involved in a refound operation of an active region, the region has been returned to native control. Notable examples include Australia, and Deutschland. TITO has never kept any trophy regions, except when orchestrating hostile refounds of invader regions. California is not an invader region and as such there is no danger of it ending up as a TITO trophy. Organisations that do keep trophy regions include raiders such as the Black Hawks and the now not only defunct but also forbidden organisation of DEN. Knot still prides himself on the rank he held in the latter, despite the site staff’s large-scale intervention against DEN for multiple and repeated rule-breaking behaviour, citing a “culture of rule-breaking [that] has become institutionalised” in DEN  (Sedgistan).

It is patently obvious that Knot does not have the best interests of California natives at heart. After all, he had absolutely no objections when DEN occupied the region, passworded it and reduced the regional population to the single-digit numbers. He also showed no respect for the long-term natives he’s claiming to represent when he was involved in the invasion of California by “The Invaders” last week. This is simply a cheap attempt at tarnishing the reputation of TITO and YDS, while providing no evidence to back up his claims. He is purely interested in keeping California open for future invasions.

We will not let this cheap attempt at slander keep us from supporting native communities in securing their regions.
