Scheduling the Council terms for Ops is, indeed, the most difficult part. It was the most difficult part last time as well, but then I was going off of NationStates' event calendar to try to anticipate what to expect. Since Frontiers released this year, I think that is the reason that not all of them were executed as planned, but the current situation might not be as imbalanced as you believe:

January


February
  • Secretary-General Election (Feb 4)
  • Best Nation (Feb 14)
  • N-Day (Feb 25)

March


April

  • AF Event (April 1)

May

  • World Trade Fair (May 13)

June


July

  • Cards Against NationStates Global (July 1)

August

  • Secretary-General Election (Aug 5)

September

  • N-Day (Sep 30)

October

  • Z-Day (Oct 30-31)
November


December



The scheduling could still be improved, although we don't yet know what the schedule will be for next year, or if they intend to use the 2023 calendar as a template for 2024. Ops does not necessarily need to be on duty or running all of these events, and we may encounter an ops councillor who actively will push for the region to not participate in one or more events. That makes it a little challenging to know what the right dates are as well.

Is the following an improvement?

January


February
  • Secretary-General Election (Feb 4)
  • Best Nation (Feb 14)
  • N-Day (Feb 25)

March


April

  • AF Event (April 1)

May

  • World Trade Fair (May 13)

June


July

  • Cards Against NationStates Global (July 1)

August

  • Secretary-General Election (Aug 5)

September

  • N-Day (Sep 30)

October

  • Z-Day (Oct 30-31)
November


December

Once upon a star supernova, twenty six legendary cards descended from our tall card tower. Hooray!
Our newfound love Testlandia, wore splendid magenta fursuit, specifically commissioned to contain BEES! It buzzed through rainbow, over walls yonder, and into the sky. At midnight, Gerald Ford erupted from his volcanic lair, overflowing with meritorious service. Both chambers reloaded their legislative shotguns while removing glistering shirts, heated by lava undershirts. Ford devoured the 535 imperial guards, while copper prices skyrocketed, and legislation stalled.

Meanwhile, the legendary crocodile, Crocodile Irwin, initiated CPR for the legislature of New Hartoria. Mercifully, HS wrote textwalls of nonsense which follows:
"Spinning crickets mercifully inundate Equestria"

Obviously, this sucked. Mercifully, Andraste (Jesus Ronaldo) smote tobacco from a Tevinter corpse. Aromatic! It smelled. Unclear directions confounded the manufacturing executives, who decided there was no better fate than death. Opportunistically, they provided Andraste more timeshares filled 37% of the time by Tevinter, but why? For this, the ultimate price of three dollars and forty seven cents must be paid.

Dissenting Justice reminds us of prison. Thanks Justice! Very cool! Not until Alexander Wallexander jumped out and landed beside several upside-down teletubbies doing yoga. "Hi peoples how do you learn

I think it's great. I would like to suggest a potential change to the candidacy, voting, and transition periods, which was something I've been thinking about during my last term as Ops.

I believe that the terms being pushed back by 3 weeks to a month could be helpful to ensuring that we have one 'Global Event' per term. Currently, the August-November term has two, while the November-February term has none, as does the May-August.
