Thanks. Please include my slight change as found in my app's map, if you don't mind. It just adjusts the Western frontier slightly.

When does the reservation for this app expire?

I'm back. Still not sure which nations would have traded with me so I can get the tech I have. Trade with powers that could have the tech I would further develop would have probably started some time in the 14th, 15th, 16th, or 17th centuries, depending on how thinga work out, but it was probably over a long period of time. I think guns and such would have reached me tmby the late 14th century or early 15th century (maybe?). By the 17th or 18th centuries, my Rasulid dynasty would have quickly risen to prominence in trade in the Indian Ocean, controlling trade and ports in several areas throughout the Indian Ocean, as it says in my app.

Ugh! What nations, and what years? I hate writing histories ;-;

I think it expires in a few hours IIRC, and I didn't think you bordered him?

Pakistan is irrelevant, as are the Ghurids, and if they're still in my app that is a mistake. Mentions of Persia will be removed. If Persia isn't made, I would like to have that strip of territory on the other side of the Hormuz that I had IRL.

I'll also come up with an explorer named something else other than Muhammad Ibn Battuta. Perhaps just Ibn Batutah/Battuta, from Morocco, who will still be a great explorer.

Then I will wait, or come up with my econkmic boom guidance (which I hope Elerian will still help me with), or both. Probably both.

This is a good idea. I had someone that wanted to join TG me (familiarity. They're in an RP I run,but it seems to be dying), and they were going to join,but all the countries they were familiar with were taken/reserved, and reservations only last for 48 hours, so they saw that it would be hard to do extensive research, even with some extra free time due to vacation, or something like that (I think they're going away for a while, from what their post said). Similar incidents have probably happened, too.

Hmm. Okay. So, my nation adopted some parts of Roman law, and human rights is now an important part of their culture (Yemenization still takes place, however), and I wws hoping that you could provide me with info on it when I ask? I would also like some more information on the law, too. Is there anything you can tell me about the building blocks of their laws?

By my understanding, the Concordians are probably more conservative/communal minded.

Vox Populi is probably more individualist/liberal?

Pretty much, with the mention that despite the nobility having no special rights over the plebeians, the Concordia is mostly formed by those rich nobles, while the Vox Populi is more plebeian.

It's a broad question, but I barely know anythingabour Roman law. I'm going to open up another tab, and reread your app (why is this stuff not staying in my brain?! I have over 80% visual recall ;-; ), but I was wondering about things such as Romanization (in this case it would be called Yemenization) and what is allowed in that, legitimacy and inheritance (in terms offhe throne and nobility), and how rebellions are dealt with. My nation won't have political parties (they're illegal), so would that be a difference between our nation, or a similarity?

Roman law? I haven't went too much in details, but the Constitution reigns supreme, and Roman citizens enjoy a broad variety of freedoms and rights.

As for Romanization, it's pretty simple. It starts with the language, then the culture and lately the religion. Everything is allowed as long as its not turned into a genocide, but generally the Romans try to manipulate those who are Romanized.
Legitimacy and inheritance? For the throne, it can be passed to any member of the ruling dynasty as long as they're purple born. The Emperor decides, and usually raises his successor to the rank of Caesar, so that his successor usually co-rules the Empire for a while before properly becoming the Emperor. If the Emperor doesn't make a decision before death, or has no successors, the Senate decides the next ruler. As for the nobility, it's pretty standard.

Rebellions are drown in blood. Anything threatening the authority of the Emperor, the Senate, and the People of Rome doesn't deserve to exist.

For Rome, it's not that political parties are forbidden, they simply don't exist. The coalitions are the closest equivalent.
