Bump, with the added bonus of adding Bigtopia with a * due to its just being in someone's username. (see #875)

It's interesting that the Pacific, TRR, Osiris, and Lazarus are the only GCRs not mentioned in issues ... yet. ;)

Issue 677: Dial L For Loan, features a small nameless nation.

Updated Maxtopia and Althaniq, and also added East Calypso. Question: Is East Calypso based off of an irl nation?
If not, I may have an issue idea for it. :)

Updated my version too.

I've added East Calypso (a tropical island tourist paradise, similar to Manamana, but maybe without the libertarian tax haven angle, though we don't know yet) and Núi Và Sông (basically Vietnam), and updated other nations for issues from #875 onward. Maxtopia and North Bigtopia, locked in "a series of bloody wars" since #190, might finally be approaching peace in #877... unfortunately, this serves mainly to allow cruel player nations to dash their hopes. Macronesia and Moltovea are now slightly more than "some generic place some people are from". Oh, and Wezeltonia is now an exporter of coffee beans, because they can't be aggressive warmongers all the time.

Well, not overtly at any rate. All we know is that it's a tropical island nation.

Since we already have Manamana representing the Caribbean, and Macronesia nominally representing Indonesia, I figure this one would likely be somewhere else, like Polynesia or the Maldives.

EDIT: Actually, since Calypso is a Greek word, it may be intended to be a Mediterranean island like Malta or Cyprus.

Trinidad and Tobago, where Calypso music originated.

If it wasn’t based on Trinidad and Tobago, it would have to have an issue about @@LEADER@@ getting stuck there with a nymph

It's whatever you want it to be!

(I was thinking Caribbean when I made it up, but Mediterranean works too. It does kind of sound like an island in the Cyclades region.)

Hey, that could still happen. The Amazon rainforest was named so because the explorers claimed to have encountered actual female warriors there...

By the way, this makes East Calypso the second NPC nation to have East in its name without the West equivalent being visible anywhere. Though since we barely even know what East Calypso is like, it may be too early to start considering how West Calypso is different!

There seems to be something wrong with the spoiler for Maxtopia's issue appearances.

By the way, should Manamana be based off of Panama. I know that Panama has been used as a tax haven by people from various countries.

Personally my head now sees the NS world as planet earth chopped in half, with the line going between Lebatuck and Calypso. Every once in a while people stand on the edge looking out, wondering where the western half of their country went.

It is, partially, especially in name, however Manamana is explicitly an island nation, which Panama is not.

Nor is Mexico, which Manamana also takes some cues from.

In NationStates, The western side does not always have to be better – If I have the time, I plan to develop East Calypso as literal paradise, while West Calypso could be a former democracy that due to extreme populism (of no specific political position) descended into some authoritarian regime.

Early days, though.

I think Ausblic is the first NPC nation to be specifically named after an actual NationStates player (second, if you count Maxtopia).

Early days, though.
"Literal paradise" is relative, of course. What's an ideal utopia to one person could be seen as pretty depressing to another.

I already picture Manamana as the libertarian idea of paradise, but which, as a result, is a haven for tax evaders, smugglers, and similar sorts that non-libertarians might have a problem with.

While I'm fine with East Calypso being a nice place (we have enough dysfunctional messes!), it should ideally cater to a different interpretation of paradise than Manamana.

As for eastern or western sides being better, Lebatuck already kind of plays with this. Sure, East Lebatuck is the communist one, but some players and player nations support communism, so they might still be the more sympathetic side for some of us. I dislike issues that pose East Lebatuck in an outright hostile light, although some has snuck in anyway, like #679.
