This thread is dedicated to information, sign-ups, and discussion concerning the region of Atlas.
Following the re-organization of the previous 'Commonwealth of Sovereign States' region, a new region named Atlas was created. Atlas region is a purely geographic entity that gives your nation a geographic location and enables a playing ground for RPs. Regional members are bound by the max population that NationStates sets for nations here. Furthermore, when it comes to RPs, we limit the max active personnel amount at around 2 million which is around the amount that China has (biggest active personnel in the world). Within Atlas region, there will be alliances between nations, though of course, it is not required to join them. We strive to have always at least one regional RP going on to keep the region active and busy. We welcome countries of all political leanings; in fact, we welcome diversity!
Our region is a realist, modern-day, earth-based (but different geography) - accordingly we use modern weapons. If your country is does not fit this, please do not apply.

A Basic Explanation of the Atlasian RMB
Let me start off with the fact that our RMB has never been quite normal. Our second RMB post was a rap, for the love of tendies. Of course, it has matured in its oddities quite a bit throughout history (thanks in part to [nation=short]Giliberafta[/nation], [nation=short]New_Carloso[/nation], [nation=short]Democratic_Union_of_Cydonia[/nation], and [nation=short]Luepola[/nation]), hence why I made this.
Anywho, here be the idiosyncracies of our RMB:
Huecode, the most obvious one. In this region-renowned language, one converts the entirety of their message into something resembling what English would look like if spelled how it sounded. It is not uncommon to include random, terribly-spelled curses combined with words, such as "gudfuk." You'll either love it or hate it, but you'll get used to it.
The Speed of Our RMB is thought to be one of the fastest in the NS world, with an estimated 750 to 1,000 RMB posts made on an average Saturday. After estimates by our region, we are third in the world for most RMB pages (5798, at the time of writing), with only Glorious Nations of Iwaku and Commonwealth of Liberty preceding us (but we'll beat them someday...). You'll get used to this, as well.
The (joking) Immaturity in our RMB abounds like in almost no other. If you don't like sexual jokes, please ignore them, you cannot stop them.
The Multilingualism of our region is... odd. Many of our active members are conversational in Swedish, which you may see in the RMB. Other languages that are common are Spanish, Russian, Serbian, and German.
That said, here are a few rules of the RMB:
No Personal Attacks. Specifically, no personal attacks in proper English; huecode insults are generally acceptable.
No RMB RPing. If you want respect in the region, this isn't how to get it.
No Controversial or Repeated Arguments. This may include Israel vs. Palestine or Capitalism vs. Communism for the first rule, and the GDP roof argument for the second. Normal debates are totally fine, even encouraged, but not to the point of repetitiveness or flaming.
Follow the Game Rules. No porn links, no excessive spam, etc. This should be a fairly easy rule to follow.
And with that, I believe there are no other things that need to be said. Thanks for reading, and have a good time in Atlas!
