***Breaking News: Recently many nations in 10000 Islands have reported to have had encounters with extraterrestrial life forms. While most citizens described their contact with the extraterrestrials as peaceful and harmless, the governments of some countries are fearing a full on invasion by these aliens. It remains to be seen what the intent of these extraterrestrial life forms might be here on earth.***

Welcome to this slightly different motto competition - It's actually more of a theme contest now that I come to think about it. Anyways, all you have to do is make your nation alien/space themed for the weekend! Your whole nation page can be considered for this: You could change your flag, title, motto, currency, etc. to fit the theme for this event. So, let your creativity run wild! By the end of the weekend, the Cultural Office will determine the best entry and the winner will receive a S2 legendary Independant Planets. To participate, just send me a telegram, ping me on Discord (Thed #2708) or post here in this thread and mention the nation you would like to enter with.
To investigate the matter of these alien sightings further, we have sent our best journalists across the nations of 10000 Islands and collected the most notable stories here.
Probably the most curious story comes from our team in Eastern New England , where somehow all turtles have been controlled by tiny aliens sitting in their carapaces. The nation itself is apparently carried on the back of the giant turtle Great A'Tuin that swims through the universe. Needless to say that our journalists were more than impressed by this sight and decided to give this nation a season 2 legendary Independant Planets for their picturesque space turtles. Congrats for winning the theme contest, ENE!
After a long day, the reporters stopped by in Free Las Pinas to take some time off work and relax on the sunny beaches this nation has to offer. However, this didn't last long, as they suddenly stumbled upon green-skinned creatures in swimsuits that were bathing in the sun and swimming in the water. Upon closer inspection, they realized that they landed in what appeared to be a huge vacation resort for extraterrestrials. After a brief conversation with the manager Ryu Sora Haruki, the resort was awarded a season 2 epic THE CUD for their honorable act of kindness and for being an exemplary symbol of the succesfull integration of aliens. Congrats FLP!
Other notable discoveries of our camera team included some mysterious UFO shaped vessels illuminating the night sky of Ayunli in green, the government of Krystalveil controlling the whole universe with the help of alien technology, and a highly suspicious restricted area in the nation of Ferndum, a satellite state of Wischland , where our staff was told to stay away due to "crashed weather balloons" and "dangerous chemical spills". The Cultural Office remains sceptical as to what the government might be hiding there and what's really going on behind these walls.
