[TWI only, OOC] Backstory

Postby Polar Svalbard » Sun May 22, 2016 5:17 pm

This thread is intended to be an OOC discussion on the backstory of your nation. Here you should be able to find friends, enemies, and have the ability to get help in creating parts of your nation. This is meant to be OOC so speak not from your nation's point of view with words like we or Polar Svalbard is seeking, use I and terms that are from your point of view.

In order to find the main stories of people, put 999 at the end of your post so people can sort to the main backstories.

The people of my nation are in conflict with themselves - on one hand, they strive for a liberal, democratic way of life, with splendid healthcare, education and scientific development; on the other hand, they carry a historical trauma of oppression (and a struggle for independence), and are therefore very nationalistic and lean towards militarization. My nation, in its current form, is 34-35 years old. The culture is roughly something between today's Israel and the Persian people (this is possible), but a bit less anxious and stressed. A lot of patience and endurance.

I think I would really enjoy realistic small-medium scale war RP (based on fighting brigades and battalions, and not tens of divisions...). I would like to participate in an invasion or to be invaded and survive. Another thing I find interesting is what I call an "insidious" RP, for example gaining power by economical means, maintaining a spy network inside an enemy state, preventing a nation from developing a nuclear weapon, secretly taking control of other nations' assets, etc. I would like my rivalries to be based on an economic conflict of interest or something like that.

That's the general idea. I don't know you all enough to decide who I want as an ally and who as a rival. I hope I'll just be able to "go with the flow" and create problematic situations.

It is a bit weird though Van that you keep a non-TWI overview. It is very well done, but maybe one more suited to TWI would be more appropriate?

It's left over from even before I created the region, and I don't RP it at all. It just serves to set the background for why my nation is so energy-conscious, spartan, and efficient -- coming from great tragedy.

They don't mind paying high taxes because of Xrevaro's pseudo-welfare state status funds much of their education and environment upkeep-two of the most important things to Xrevarans. They're a highly religious populace, following their native religion. Many Xrevarans are employed in the service, agriculture, manufacturing industries. They're hard workers, with a culture similar to modern-day Denmark. It's a large area, small population, trade oriented nation.
Xrevaro is an old society with a history filled with calamities both man-made and natural. Xrevaro in its current state is about 97 yrs old(when it first gained independence in 1919) however it's demilitarized state for about 32yrs. It's war history is mostly marked with being conquered.

I'm open to most rps- I'm only apprehensive towards war and sports rp because I have 0 experience in those and don't know much about their topics. Xrevaro ICly has one rival-Vancouvia- and 3 allies(Ostehaar, Verdon, Gudao). I'd like to do more economic and politic rps to gain more experience on those topics and dab a little in war rp more. I would also love to do a region wide crisis rp-like an economic collapse or super volcano eruption-something along those lines but not those exactly.


I might be interested in a politics rp.

The nation of Livorino is a small Island nation of 720,000 people. Ruled by a Constitutional Monarchy headed by the crown prince Spartaco di Livorino, the nation finds its roots and heritage in France and Italy. Though mostly French and Italian, due to its stature as a Tourist destination and Tax Haven, it has attracted a large variety of immigrants, giving it a unique spice. It's economy is focused on the tertiary and quarternary sectors with Tourism as its largest source of revenue.

Currently I am looking for diplomatic RPs but I'm willing to do most anything, including things like my Association Football thread, espionage, humanitarian aid, small engagements among other things.

Postby Mitjevalia » Mon May 23, 2016 4:25 pm

Mitjevalia is a nation with a little more than 1,000 years of history. Prehistory is not well known and was characterized by non-Indo-European semi-pastoral peoples of unclear origins that lived in communities (oppida) based on tribal organization and built megaliths.

During the Early Middle Ages some muddled fishermen and sailors from the southwestern parts of the Carolingian Empire arrived at the coasts of eastern Gael and populated the Midival peninsula. After the breakup of the Carolingian Empire (Treaty of Verdun, 843) more immigrants arrived from Catalonia, Languedoc and Provence, and established the first settlements. Feudalism soon became the dominant socioeconomic system and petty fiefdoms spread throughout the Midival peninsula and beyond. Mitjevalia had a sea trade empire in the late Middle Ages and early Modern Age in the Kavju Sea, and then adopted an autarchic way of life until it open its borders to the world when the military conflicts of the 20th century and an increasing globalization forced the country to update its medieval Constitutions in 1992, although the country remains a crowned republic. Since then its governments have underscored their commitment in improving cooperation with neighbouring countries and actively contributing to international efforts aimed at bringing stability to the whole region, focusing on Gael and the Kavju Sea.

Mitjevalia is a tiny nation (7,441,000 inhabitants), has a fully developed open market economy with some level of protectionism, multilingual population (88% of Mitjevalant people speak the Common Tongue), productive labour force, very low business taxes (10% maximum tax rate) and a well developed finance system. The economy is dependent on some imports (high technology, special materials) and tourism, and its main exports are food, banking and finance services (favoured by banking secrecy laws), high quality ceramics for domestic and scientific use, ships and natural gas.
The Mitjevalant economy is awaiting some structural developments, like the duplication of the Paladòuc – Lyavins railway, which would increase exports from Paladòuc’s port, and the modernization of the University of Mitjevalia, specially thanks to the expansion of its Polytechnical Faculty. The country is also open to build a gas pipeline with international partners to export Mitjevalant gas, which is currently exported liquefied.

Mitjevalia seeks bilateral and multilateral relations with other countries that further the peaceful coexistence of nations; promote respect for human rights, democracy and the rule of the law; promote international trade; want to contribute to alleviate need and poverty in the world, and promote the preservation of natural resources.

You will find much more information in the factbooks. Here's the general introduction: https://www.nationstates.net/nation=mit ... /id=578957 (with links to History, Geography, Demographics, Politics, Economy and Culture).

My Backstory

Postby New Kares » Wed Aug 17, 2016 2:13 pm

Kares was an Utopian project in the 1975. It tried to use experimental technology to automate most work. Unfortunately, the experiment failed, and the country went into chaos. A new, more pragmatic nation of New Kares (is trying to/has) rise(n) out of the ashes with diplomatic support.

One question I have: Should I assume diplomatic support, or RP for it?

Washingtan: Population: 7 million, Army: Active sodliers: 15 800 Reserv: 800, Navy: Aircraft carriers: 0 ,Battleships: 0 ,Cruseiers 1 ,Destroyers: 4 Submarines: 3 ,carriers: 10 ,aircrafts: Drones: 0 ,Naval Bombers: 3 ,Bombers: 6 jets: 2

Washingtan is a nation that technicaly existed in 1908 but was under control of a bigger empire witch claimed its terretories as its own! back in 1908the lands where used for farming, but then when war broke (1914) out it was a massive recruting hole, but during the war the empire collapsed (1918) and Washingtan became free!

the country stayed as an agrocultral nation untill 1931 when the land became unfarmeble due to the effect of bombs that didnt go off during the war, so they noticed there was oil and coal under the grounds they lived on, Washingtan started getting mines and oil drills up

then in 1932 started exporting to some of the great powers of the world, but then the powers went high alert due to tension caused by annexations and alliances, so in 1939 something happend!

WAR, war broke out and fast, and now powers needed more oil witch boomed the Washingtan economy, but after a while... they got greedy, and wanted more then they could get... so Washingtan got attacked and forced to hand over oil and coal for free untill the end of 1947

so them the country went into anarchy amd killed itself... and after a while it got annexed by all others around it (1944), exept a little bit of it, then in 1945 the war stopped, and Washingtan lost its glory and richness, now it was left to die of, then in 1955 it gained back all its lands it lost back in 1944, it couldnt rebuild the same country but it saw tensions rise once more in the world...

in 1956 ita trades could only choose one side... withc they knew would destroy their trade based economy so it announced trade with one (But traded with the other in seacreat), and so its economy went good

in 1978 they found something BIG, something called Uranium... it started digging and selling and it seemed to go good, but as Washingtan found out... you need something to protect from radioactive materials... and so the country lost 1% of its population, witch caused trade to slow.... witch made the econmy a bit worse, so they shut down the mines untill they could figure out how to be safe from Uranium...

1999, they found out how!!! but the demands where much lower now, and they didnt get as much out of it, so they instead kept it... witch they still do, but they had to sell some of it away due to a money crisis, but it still has some Uranium left in vaults, 2016

Postby Paradisiam » Fri Oct 07, 2016 5:46 am

The large island nation of Paradisiam was founded by settlers some 50 years ago. The original populace, which make up a large percentile of the total population, were found to be fervent and equally as religious as it's new inhabitors. The native name of the island according to historians and native past-speakers was Paradise; in accordance with the islands plentiful fruit, summer crops and herbal uses of it's many plants and fungus. Eager to instill a productive central government, the settlers built a huge city at the northern peak of the island and named it Paradise City to aid in the assimilation of the native cultures. Needless to say people from across the nation flocked to this city but remained steadfast in their culture and traditions. A constant war between natives and Paradisiamites saw many conflicts between infantry in the jungles areas around Paradise City. Fearful that danger would cross into the city, officials and police chiefs began hiring officers from amongst the native populace who proved faithful to their new duties and to the faith of Paradisiam.

Many displays of native demand for representation in the government in recent years has opted a royal family to take control of internal affairs of the government, and with help of the church they succeeded. Years of mutual profit and socialistic policies saw a golden age in Paradisiam's wealth, but many still remained discontent at the ever growing lack of rights. In this the people found common ground and demanded a true democracy through public protest in sports arenas for other nations in the world to see. Eventually earning them a party system where many different political propagandists and authorities could meet safely and for the first time in this nation's history, truely come together.

Many natives and their kin still find something to fight for, luckily protests are legal but are still prone to get out of hand. The now Paradisiam government, to amswer this social-problem, offered many sports programs across the country that remained true to the native traditions. Even coming in fourth place in the Nation States Archery Open. Integrated soccer helped change the way citizens viewed eachother, now seeing one another as teammates in a united cause against other international teams and clubs.

Though social equality is booming, and the economy still remains strong from the former royal families dealings, an ever elusive Native Paradisiamite Mafia still has grasp on many economical assets and isolated communities. the early years of warfare brought firearms to their limits. The Falling Star Forge erected from this bloodshed as a leading designer and manufacturer for Paradisiam's police forces, security detail, and military.

I currently participate in NS Sports amd join as many events as possible. Im a fan of soccer, since it has the biggest hosted event in NS, and have created a personalized soccer team known as the Paradise City Creamers. (Check Factbook or Sportswire for info regarding their part in a democratic Paradisiam.) I also run a very newly made firearms store(Falling Star Forge) that is located in Starfall City.

I would most certainly be interested in sports rps, political rps, and small conflict rps. I think the idea of spy related espionage and sweet chases amd cool gadgets is nifty. I would love to rp foreign spys in my cpuntry amd in yours! I also think TWI should have a regional soccer tourney because it's so popular.

Thenganytras

Postby Thenganytras » Wed Nov 23, 2016 8:14 am

Thenganytras is a republic which arose from revolution centuries ago, just before the Industrial Revolution. Early capitalist and classical-liberal ideologies took root in the fledgeling nation, shaping the future of the republic. Now largely governed by a large bureaucracy, the Republic's ideology is still fairly liberal, with a decent conservative minority forming the only major opposition, though they've been dwindling in recent years. A large divide between the richer and poorer citizens, but with a strong economy, Thenganytras is considered by the Capitalist world to be somewhat of a beacon of industrialism and tourism, with beaches and forests over the two islands which make up the major part of the nation.
