Years prior generally included a list of nations that contributed and awarded them with a commendation. We can do the same, perhaps with a medal if we can get a nice design done up in time.
Something I’ve thought about doing was a weekly dispatch showing the growing severity of the zombie threat until it hits in about 4 weeks’ time. A telegram would be too out there, I think, but that was the original idea I’m stealing from a much smaller region.
Seeking additional thoughts, before it gets a little too late in the month.
I think the idea of a growing severity has merit. Perhaps pinning dispatches would be best until the week before, then we start ramping up the hype for it with TGs.
Perhaps also making a symbolic cabinet order (by the incoming and outgoing cabinet, again highlighting severity) saying that we are appointing a zombie expert “who will have no use, because zombies could never take over and threaten the region”.
