Welcome

To Mobius, a vibrant and interactive fantasy-based region set around the industrious revolution period, where industry meets magic to the point it's been embedded into society. Mobius thrives as a worldbuilding region where you the individual or otherwise nation decide the fate of history and how it shall affect the future to come. The region was founded on the principal of being a safe haven to those who find themselves to be outworldly, wanting to try something new, escape modern society, or the beneath the foot of a god-modded futuristic nation. Mobius is openly welcome to those whom find themselves predominately shaped to be something different from the rest of the NationStates community, and perhaps that may just be you.

Mobius in it's current state is pretty much established, but fairly new. The staff and the community by all means is quite laxed and very helpful to those in need, which is a key component to developing a successful region as said by many; and it begins all with you.

What features are offered in Mobius:
  • As obvious, a unique world map (Visit Our Region)
  • A discord, to interact real-time with the region (See Below)
  • Timely worldbuilding rp events
  • A Diverse Community

The World Map

The Map of Mobius, while not original is inherited from the Sonic the Hedgehog Universe (Video Game Franchise); Hence the name of the region as a tribute. However, it was heavily modified in terms of graphics to accommodate the needs of the region, with minor additions here and there such as the Japanese Archipelago.

From looking, the map consists of 6 majors landmasses (otherwise continents): with two being subsequently merged as Cyrelashia and several archipelagoes. Each continent is diversified, sharing little to no similarities at all with another, such as Cyrus & Elashia having a different style of architecture and religious concepts as an example.

Take a look at the climate of each continent to get a gist of where you want your nation to be placed

Portrayed Continents

  • North America (Acalas)
  • South America (Asinbal)
  • Europe (Cyrus)
  • Asia (Elashia)
  • Africa (Arayah)
  • Australia, ultimately a frozen icecap in the far northeast (Name TDB)

Likely Questions

Are puppets allowed?
Indeed puppet are allowed. However, they must be active & participating. Consequently, you'll need to fill out a placement application for the puppet in addition to your main

What type of species can I be?
Anything as long as it has human-characteristics, hence the term humanoid. An example of illegal species would be pop-culture alien, xenomorph, and E.T. We have a general list of species you can view here

Why can't I start large or have one of the shaded areas
For the time being, we wish that every nation started small. No nation, not even roman became vast in a day; However, the shaded areas will disappear in time as more player nations join.

Why can Chun-Nan start large?
Chartering nations get the benefit of starting large; However, it's at a price to keep expansion balanced

Can I colonize / expand
Yes you may expand your nation. However, claims can only be made at a specific period of time. Additionally, claims can be made in any unoccupied territory within the vicinity of your nation; although they must be small.

Nippon is an upcoming yet stable military and economic power in the East. It is notably inferior to its continental cousin, but the Empire has engaged in colonialism in order to bolster its own power and prestige.
Nippon as a nation has existed for millennia; The culture and people of Nippon have been heavily influenced by Chun-Nan over the centuries. However, societal upheavals in its history coaxed it into isolation and dealing with solely internal matters. Three centuries ago, the Anema dynasty unified the squabbling feudal realms under the banner of the Anema. Unfortunately, troubles occurred that saw to the near-extinction of the line. The Mogami family was set to usurp the thrown due to a matrilineal marriage between the Crown Prince and a Mogami noblewoman a century ago. However, the Mogami family were driven out under orders of the ailing Emperor. The Mogami dynasty had since found refuge in Chun-Nan, learning to survive in their new home until they could return and reclaim what they believed to be theirs. 33 years ago, they returned and took the throne upon the death of the last Anema sovereign.

The nation lives in "semi-autarky" due to isolation but the Kingdom is self-sufficient in terms of food, water and electricity (metal is scarce, hence why much of the houses are made of wood. The cars are made of steel imported from others countries or less official "organisations" as a local plant, the hanam, is frequently used as a drug, more often than its medicinal attributes.

Can I start somewhere other than Cyrelashia despite the rule saying otherwise.
At the moment we're focusing on getting to the region key aspects up, such as a calendar; Hence why we have the restriction. However, if you really want to start off beyond the designated continent of Cyrus & Elashia, telegram or message via discord Soleanna and he'll assist you in making that possible.

What about humanoid aliens?

Long as the species has human-characteristics, hence the term humanoid is legal to the region. Anything like an xenomorph, pop-culture alien, or like ET is not accepted. I should probably update the alien question with a better explanation.

So, since my alien species is humanoid enough to be legal,
would it be acceptable if I created a puppet to act as a little colony?

Nation Name: Azdov Mobius

Government Classification: Colonial Republic

Official Language(s): Chesmian Azdov

National Language(s): Chesmian Azdov

Species: Azdov

Climate Preference: Humidity doesn't matter, but Azdoves would prefer a temperate or warm climate.

Starting Population: around 15 million
The colony is brand new, so it's population is small compared to other Azdov colonies.
The colony's alien technology should make up for the strength it lacks from pure manpower.

Military Power: 14,000 / 20,000 | 34,000 Total

Nation Description: A new colony founded by anthro-like settlers from an alien space empire. Is appalled by humans' appearance but gets along with other mobian species.

Sociopolitical Goal: Find a way to make the whole planet eventually join the Azdov Empire of Chesmo, and after that eradicate the human population.
