Nation States Moderators
Nation State Moderators are the games moderators. They have oversight over the ENTIRE WEBSITE. They are charged by the sites owner (MR Max Berry Himself) to enforce the sites rules. They have the power to delete nations and/or ban them from the game. They are the end all be all of Nationstates moderation. Their word is law and right next to God himself. The regional government has no control over their actions and punishments.

Before you report spammers and trolls to the NationState Moderators, Report them to the Gameside Advocates and Regional officers. It is almost a certainty that the Regional Moderaton team has already filed a report. The NationState Moderators dislike multiple reports on the same incident as it makes it harder for them to address the issue
