2016 Orbolympics Important Info


Recommended Posts

BBfe8Oc.png

Hello, welcome back everyone, today I will give you some important information on the Orbolympics.

 

First off, to announce the host and why:

 

But before that, let us look at the Committee's comments on the bids:

 

 

Nation name: Harzotchka 
Nation link: https://politicsandw...nation/id=11048
Which city will be the host city: Kairo
Why you should be the host of the 2016 Summer Orbolympics (At least five sentences of information): Harzotchka is a warm nation that can host all events of the Orbolympics. We are a nation that is warm for all nations that haven't attacked us. We are a cultural nation while preserving our past no matter how much we reject it, in the Pyramids. We have lots of open sand, urm, land that can be exploited to create all venues and housing for the Orbolympians. We still have a barter economy from old Khevinist times, so we will be able to do everything without an issue. 

Thank you for your bid, Harzotchka! Your nation is definitely a warm nation. Extremely hot, even. We would be glad to have you host the Orbolympics, and we don't doubt you are capable of hosting the Orbolympics.

 

 

Nation name: Finland

 

Nation link: https://politicsandw...nation/id=43562

 

Which city will be the host city: Helsinki

 

Why we should host this thing: Finland is a nation in the Northern Hemisphere located within the Arctic circle in the North and on the Gulf of Finland in the south. We have a warm suitable climate for the competitors at the Olympics in the summer months and we are a developed small nation. Our cities are filled with attractions and cultural history that has been remarkably well-preserved.

 

Finland is also an extremely safe nation in Orbis, with no major terrorist incidents to date yet, a strong military and a excellent Emergency Services department in each city. Helsinki in particular is the capital of Finland and is extremely safe as the Finnish Emergency Services demonstrated during the recent anarchic riots in Helsinki - they have the capability to keep situations contained and safe. Finland is also very neutral on the international stage, making it even safer of a location. We also have no missiles, etc and are a part of a large alliance - making us the safest god damn place you could choose, and safety is important with all the terrorist stuff going on.

 

Helsinki has agreed to hold the games in joint with other cities as well - however one minor difficult is the fact that Finland has banned nuclear weapons testing within the country meaning that the Nuclear Kills Competition will have to be held somewhere else. May we suggest Northern Russia?

 

The best thing is, Finland already has many of these athletic facilities in place! All that is needed are some upgrades to bring them to Olympic level, and the 2 million dollars provided by the committee will help plenty.

 

However, don't underestimate us either! Despite being a winter sports country, Finland provides funding to its athletes and has capable athletes competing at the Olympics!

 

Opening Ceremonies, Baseball, (semis/finals), Soccer (semis/finals), Basketball (semis/finals). Swimming, Diving, Cycling (finish), Beach Volleyball, Track - Helsinki

Rowing, Basketball (semis/finals) - Vantaa

Field Hockey, Baseball (qualifiers) - Espoo

Cycling (start), Soccer (qualifiers) - Tampere

Thank you for your bid, Finland. It is interesting to see a winter nation place a bid for a summer orbolympics. We definitely think your nation is much more fit to be a winter nation though, so come back this winter.

Greetings!! The Nation of Fraggle Rock is formally submitting a bid to host the 2016 Orbolympics. This formal bid is a high honor and shows the world that a little nation can execute the games to the highest standards. This nation is more than prepared to lay out the case as for why we should hold the greatest of Orbolmpic Games.


We will lay out our bid in four parts: The first section will be all the vital information needed. The second section will be Harmer Fraggle, our Sports Minister speaking about the history of games that Fraggle Rock citizens partake in. Thirdly, our Minister of Internal Affairs, Mokey Fraggle, will outline venues, and the current political/security situation. Lastly, The Nation of Fraggle Rock will show the Orbolympic Committee around our nation and pay lavishly to wine and dine them.



 
Vital Information:
 
Nation name:

The Nation of Fraggle Rock
 
Nation link: 

Fraggle Rock
 
Which city will be the host city?:

Wembly Crossroads
 
Other cities involved?

City of Gobo 

Township of Boober

 
All three cities are within an accessible range to each other.
 
Will there be plenty of gifts, outstanding hotel accommodations, personal tour guides, and large sums of food to consume provided to the Orbolympic Committee Members?
 
It's half our budget. The Orbolympic Committee Members will be treated will the utmost respect and provided the highest accommodations. No expense will be spared on the much respected committee members.

History of Sports in Fraggle Rock, Presented by Sports Minister Harmer Fraggle.
 
The Nation of Fraggle Rock has a long and storied tradition of sports and physical exercise. We are a 
 
competitive bunch that thrives on team work and a strong ethic of athleticism. Our national past time is of 
 
course Rock Hockey. This great sport was introduced to me by Rumple Fraggle at an early. Through 
 
years of practice and dedication, I personally have been part of 27 World Rock Hockey Championships. I 
 
am also currently the team captain for the Roustabouts, the most popular Rock Hockey team in the known 
 
universe. While Rock Hockey takes up a substantial part of my athletic time, I am also part of the National 
 
Fraggle Rock Swim Team. Sports are promoted highly in Fraggle society, but no more than any other 
 
aspect, which makes us well rounded members of society. Every Fraggle is required to take part in at least 
 
one sport for no less than 45 minutes and no more than 4 hours. Our people are in peak condition and our 
 
sporting culture has provided the world an example to strive for.  The infrastructure built for sporting inside 
 
Fraggle Rock is without question state of the art and would fit nicely within the requirements of the 
 
Orbolmpic Committee.

Venues, and Political/Security situation. Presented by Interior Minister Mokey Fraggle

Opening and Closing Ceremonies, Baseball, (semis/finals), Soccer (semis/finals). Cycling

 

(finish), Beach Volleyball, Track and Field, Basketball (semis/finals): Wembly Crossroads

 

Rowing, Swimming, Diving: City of Gobo

 

Field Hockey, Baseball (qualifiers), Cycling (start), Soccer (qualifiers): Township of Boober

 

All of our venue locations are in the most accessible and beautiful areas of each city. Access to the highly

 

quality of life and the very best money can provide will be located in these three areas. Also there is

 

currently a transit project to connect all three cities via a private rail way system that will only be used for

 

VIPs and Orbolympic Committee Members. Private lanes on the roads will be provided as well as any

 

other accommodation the highly respected committee would desire.

 

​As for security concerns, there are none. We are a highly respected nation that the world would never

 

dare to attack and try to ruin the most respected organization and their committee members. There will be

 

a massive crack down on all protests, and we guarantee that any trouble will be dealt with swiftly. We also

 

plan on putting all citizens to work during the games. The vast majority will be clean up crews that will

 

follow any committee member around and pick up their trash. That's on top of the promised 10

 

member security team, 3 butler crew, and 6 go to Fraggles that will do any of your bidding. We also will

 

provide immunity to all committee members and their guests. No charges would ever be considered, no

 

matter the perceived severity.    
 

 

Final words

 

Now we will tour the nation and show you around. Feel free to eat whatever you want, and don't forget the gift bags that will be provided.

 

Thank you for the honor to bid on the Orbolympics. We will provide the best experience and the esteemed committee members will never be happier. We will do whatever it takes to have the pleasure to serve you and promote your games.

Thank you for your bid, Fraggle Rock. Your tour has claimed the attention of the committee--however, it definitely worries us that you have no power. This is for the sake of the athletes.

Why Goand should host the Orbolympics

 

  • Goand is a tropical country, unlike some of the countries who've placed a bid
  • We already have existing locations for most sporting events, and they all all Orbolympic-ready; all of the other necessary locations will be immediately constructed, should we win the bid
  • The Government of Goand is financially capable of supporting the Orbolympics
  • Infrastructure (highways, roads, etc) is world class; traffic jams rarely happen, even in the capital
  • Safety-wise, we have one of the best (if not the best) police force in the region, with the latest equipment, capable officers, and high police visibility
  • We have never had any terrorist attack in our nation's history; our intelligence service has been able to thwart nearly all threats, even before they happened
  • Well-liked by the international community
  • Low poverty rate
  • 98% of the country speaks English as a second native language, so communication should be easy
  • Low crime rate
  • Our people are a sports-loving people, and they'd love it if the Orbolympics were held in Goand

Host city?

The capital, Frand.

 

Sporting Events:

     Frand

          Opening Ceremony, Closing Ceremonies, Swimming, Football/Soccer (finals only), Cycling

     Adlon

          Basketball

     Zogun

           Baseball

     Bucidnon-Alsacoff

           Rowing, Diving

     Liwayway

           Track & Field

     Edenia

            Fencing

     Salinas

            Boxing

      Harlatr

            Field Hockey, Football

      Arrantilla

            Volleyball

      Garja

             Beach Volleyball

 

Hope to see you in Goand!

Thank you for your bid, Goand. Your nation seems like an extremely good fit for the 2016 Summer Orbolympics.

 

 

 

Leader: Vonnorman
Nation: Normanlandia
https://politicsandw.../nation/id=9560
Host city: Normangrad
Host nation: Normanlandia is completely safe from outside attackers. Normanlandia is generously powered. Normanlandia is actually completely devoid of native people (dont tell anyone). Normanlandia is basically a parking lot the size of a nation. Normanlandia (being a nuclear wasteland) is also quite warm due to the decay of radioactive materials. Normanlandia has doughnuts, pizza, hookers, coffee, cheetos, mountain dew (all types), AND BOOZE! 

Thank you for your bid, Normanlandia. Normally we would consider your nation more, however it definitely worries us that your nation is a nuclear wasteland. This is for the athletes' and bystanders' sake.

 

And so, the moment you've all been waiting for... The host of the 2016 Summer Orbolympics is.....

 

 

 

 

 

 

GOAND!

 

Thank you, Goand, for your bid. We thought your nation was the best fitting to be the summer Orbolympics host this year. For all of you who didn't make it to be the host, thank you anyway, and you can re-apply next year!

 

 

 

NOW, for some other important information:

 

REGARDING ATHLETES

A Message From The Nation of Fraggle Rock

Fire Chief Fraggle

 

 

This is a message not only to the Orbolympic Committee Members, but also to the world at large. After our extensive application process and bid which included massive gifts and loans to the committee members, in which we never expected a dime in return, our bid was rejected. This is corruption at the highest of levels. Every decision maker had their grubby, greedy, sweating, hairy hands in our pockets and took money from Fraggle Rock. We were promised that the games would be held in Fraggle Rock, yet the Orbolympic Committee Members failed to select us after taking much money and gifts. We were very blatant about our bribes and even have documenting proof of such occurrence. To say that this is an outrage is an understatement.

 

The Committee Members have forced our hands on this decision. The Nation of Fraggle will be taking action. Firstly, our nation is fully withdrawing from the games set up by this corrupt body. We will not send our best athletes if we can not pay to host the event. 

 

Secondly, we will be on the look out for any opportunity that presents itself to terrorize the games. If any nation sends athletes to these games, they are doing so with the risk out them not coming home, or coming home slightly glowing. 

 

Lastly, in direct response to the massive failure of the committee members, we, The Nation of Fraggle Rock, will be hosting our own games, called The Super Duper Very Excellent and Special Orbolympics (SDVESO). These games will be held in Fraggle Rock and have the exact same sports, but triple the pay out to all athletes in attendance. Any nation who wishes to boycott the original games will be sent a generous payout and will be invited to the SDVESO games.

 

Never again will rampant corruption go unchecked. The Super Duper, Very Excellent and Special Orbolympic Games will be the best the world has or will ever see. The Nation of Fraggle Rock spits on the feet of the poor saps who take part of the non special Orbolympic games.

 

 

Many Hugs,

FireChiefFraggle

blah blah blah we gave you gifts and tried to bribe you and you didn't accept and apparently that is corruption blah blah blah (this was paraphrased)

Yeah. Okay. If you want we give you gifts and refund for the tour and everything. And you can stay out of the games, though if you want to reapply the Committee will still accept you.

But seriously, you bribed us and we didn't accept. I don't see how that is corruption. We are sending back the stuff, so, yeah.

Clogged Up Toilet hereby boycotts the Orbolympics and would like to participate in the Super Duper Very Excellent and Special Orbolympics.

We'd also like to terrorize the participants of the non-special Orbolympics, but in a non-nukey way, simply because we have no NRF or nukes. However, we'd be willing to terrorize in a more conventional warfare kinda way, provided The Syndicate is okay with it (they won't be).  :(

This is also for the refusal to let Wilhelm participate, but mainly for shits and giggles.

You took the bribes and got called out on them. That's still a bribe. Your games are corrupt and I fully support the the real games, named The Super Duper, Very Excellent Special Orbolymipcs. I do not need to paraphrase anything. There was an admission of guilt in taking the bribes. The games held within Fraggle Rock would never accept that behavior.

 

We wish you the best of luck.
