It would go into the NationStates subforum, indeed. And as a guy who happens to run a meritocracy, I wouldn't even be too uninterested. ^^
Since Lillorainen's geography is currently being overhauled a 'tiny' bit, most information on it posted before December 12, 2018, is not entirely reliable anymore. Until there's a new, proper factfile, everything you might need to know can be found here. Thank you. #RetconOfDoom (Very late update, 2020/08/30 - it's still going on ...)

Great! Would you mind (via TG) discussing what should go in a thread like this as sign-ups and getting the discussion started?

Feel free to throw me a TG! This might require some brainstorming. ^^

This thread is the "Roleplaying tips and suggestions" thread, NOT the "advertise your region" thread. You get one region recruiting thread over in the Gameplay forum, you don't get to go spam unrelated topics with ads for your region.

Here is a tip, if a country called the Peoples Republic of Markenburg comes into your region don't allow him. He is racist.

It's a social media thread. Just go by the templates and fill out the information for whichever account type you're going to use. If you're still confused, you can look around at the other posts and see how they do it, or use the quote function to look at the BB code and see how it's formatted.

Nope, else it'd be linked in the OOC part of that thread. Nobody's really applied before for it, either — everyone that I've seen starts posting with Kuronami's templates, and there's no further remark.

Hello,
me and a friend are interested in using NS forum to develop an exploration roleplay.
The idea is to open partecipation only to nations that are in our two (small) regions, at least for the moment, but without excluding the idea to have more players in future, if they will met some requirements.
So my question is: can we use this part of the forum for our purposes? Also if we are going to make a "not open to anyone rp"?
If you have any suggestion, if would be really appreciated.
Thank you!!

So, in building a regional role-play, could I get a few canonical name-drops?
A notable leader, or nationality, that would start and finish an argument on Twitcher
A notable nation whose leader has no clue what they are doing
A notable two-party state that has no agreement between the two parties
Cheers, and forgive me if this is misplaced.

Postby Terzeronistan » Tue Dec 22, 2020 2:10 pm

Hello there!
I just want to ask if this topic is about nation roleplay.
If it is, do we write it down? Or do we tell other nations?
Thanks!

How to create a genuinely communist nationstate?

Postby Brigosnia » Wed Jan 20, 2021 12:29 am

Hello! So, I've relatively recently founded this country with the sole objective of roleplaying as a marxist-leninist state. I know right off the bat that authoritarianism and income equality are both very important. I've accomplished both of these rankings with varying degrees of success. Can anyone suggest some ranking or small tweaks that I can work on to really create a communist country on nationstates? :unsure:

If you're talking about NStats, then I suggest you choose the most communist options for issues. If you're talking about more detailed gameplay, I suggest you watch/read Red Son.
