Claim Expansion Form


  • Nation Name: The United Conservative Provinces
  • Additional Territory Requested
    • Territory: New Brunswick (72,908 sq km)
    • Territory: Nova Scotia (55,284 sq km)
    • Territory: Cape Verde (4,033 sq km)
    • Total Additional Area: 132,225 sq km
  • Reason for Expansion: To recognize the annexation of the Scotia neutral zone by Liberterra (New Brunswick and Nova Scotia) after the Liberterran-French War in 1855. Cape Verde is specifically for Liberterran military use, as the people wish to advance from a regional power to a great power.

Please note, if you are adding additional territory, you should understand that anything over your initial claim may be contested for up to seven (7) days from its approval. Please indicated that you understand: YES

The United Conservative Provinces your expansion request has been MODIFIED for our record-keeping purposes. Since it would keep you under 2 million square kilometers, we are expanding your INITIAL CLAIM to include the new land. Thus this does NOT count as an expansion, but an adjustment to your initial claim. Thus the land shall be considered to have been yours since the day you applied.

Also, please explain the need to clam Cape Verde before we complete the adjustment.

RULE CHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT


Henceforth, all New Members shall be limited to one (1) expansion provided that expansion does NOT extend the New Member's claim beyond two (2) million square kilometer limit. New Members who elect to expand their claim within their limited two (2) million square kilometer limit shall have their Initial Claim adjusted to incorporate the new territory as if it were theirs from the day they applied. This will protect the adjustment from being contested. New Members who elect to expand shall also be required to give a reason as to the need for such an expansion. No more expansions, adjustments, or other changes shall be permitted until such time as the New Member's introduction thread is completed to a satisfactory level. This act shall be retroactive, thus any New Member who adjusted their claim prior to this rule change shall still be bound by it.

Yes


:blink: :blink: :blink:

First, some of what you listed is claimed. Secondly, you're going to have to work this out a little better for our purposes. It seems disorganized and strewn across the globe in random fashion. The fact is that in order to defend such a far-flung claim as this would take a military that would basically bankrupt you, and frankly other people might want islands too. As it stands, we can't see any real logic or justification to this claim and hope that you will understand why we're declining your application at this time. Feel free to refocus your claim to something more logical and reapply if you desire.

I'm just wondering, would it be ok if I kept the Pacific Islands (Polynesia, Japan, Philippines, Malaysia, Taiwan, Sakhalin, Melanesia, Micronesia, Singapore, New Zealand) and then dropped everything else? Or is that too vast?

Define Polynesia. Hawaii is considered part of it, but that would be firmly in Chrinthania's territory. Taiwan is part of Nacrad. You can see the Initial Claims and Completed Claims maps to see what is taken. Tell us about why all of Polynesia, Melanesia, and Micronesia. What is this idea you have?

I was thinking that all of the Pacific Island Nations entered into a Confederacy to protect their mutual interests against larger powers, as well as to create a wall of nautical territory that could put tariffs on all ships traveling between North America and Asia.

Also, I'll leave Hawaii alone.

You couldn't put tariffs on ships in international waters. If you tried, you would literally cause a war. You can place tarrifs on them in your own ports, though. Not in international waters. Furthermore, Taiwan and Hawaii are already claimed, so they're not available at this time. If you wish to reapply, then please feel free to fill out the application again.

Note: I decided to ensure that all of my territories where in the pacific or near indian ocean (excluding my arctic and antarctic outpost islands) so that it would make more sense, and could be a somewhat believable nation.

Part 3: Tell Us About Yourself.
First of all, I'm 14. Besides that,well, Uuuhm... I play three instruments! Yeah, the Violin, Baritone Saxophone and Viola. Also, I love LOTR and Dan Brown books. Besides those hobbies I am also into geopolitics, hence my NationStates accounts.

Part 4: RP Examples
You do not have to be a prolific writer to join our group, but we do ask you to show us a few examples of previous RP experience.
I haven't done an RP yet, but I have written a Constitution: The Constitution of Prosperon
And I've also written some other factbook stuff: A Bold Beginning and The Culture of Prosperon
(The account i'm using is a puppet, Prosperon is my main nation.)

Do you understand what is required of you before you submit this application?
Yes


Note: I decided to ensure that all of my territories where in the pacific or near indian ocean (excluding my arctic and antarctic outpost islands) so that it would make more sense, and could be a somewhat believable nation.

Hey pal, I’m going to try and save the OP some time and let you know that Hong Kong is already taken. Excited to have another nation join, hopefully you can get things worked out.

It says on the home page but an initial claim is your nation’a claim before completing your introductory thread.

      Tell us what part of the map has caused your brain to get excited! Remember, as a New Member, you're limited to a total area of two million square kilometers (2,000,000 km2), though you are not required to claim all of it. Please list each entity separately.

Yes

Oceanor your application has been DENIED. It was denied due to your previous explanation of your territory as some place "that all of the Pacific Island Nations entered into a Confederacy to protect their mutual interests against larger powers, as well as to create a wall of nautical territory that could put tariffs on all ships traveling between North America and Asia." You can't do that. There's no way you could ever do that. No one can do that. Ships have certain rights to international waters this concept would violate. That and it would literally start a war. The claim strikes less of an intrinsic desire to play something interesting and fun and more a way to essentially work within the rules to create a wall in the Pacific and basically say, "come at me, bro." And we're aware that this crude interpretation isn't exactly what you see in your mind, but it is exactly how it hits us. Apologies if this is not your intent, but what we've seen and been told tell us that our interpretation is mostly right.

Initial Claims are essentially Pending Claims. The people who are pending/initial have been approved but have not completed their introduction thread to a satisfactory level. Initial claims cannot be challenged. They are limited to a claim of up to (but not to exceed) two (2) million square kilometers.
Completed Claims are members who have completed their introduction thread to a satisfactory level and may expand their nation up to (but not to exceed) ten (10) million square kilometers.
Contested Claims are expansions by Full Members (whose by definition have Completed Claims) which can be contested. Expansions can be contested by any Full Member for up to 7 days from the approval of the expansion.

So you wouldn't be able to challenge Rome for Switzerland.

He's not banned. Anyone can reapply who was previously denied. It should be noted that if he's claimed something, then was denied, then you claimed it... it's yours because you were approved and he would then be unable to claim that territory.

Thank you dear friend, but I think there is a mistake when you were coloring my claim on the Riau Islands. You forgot to color the Anambas Islands Regency and the Natuna Regency, both of them lying in the middle of Malaysia.

Here is the map of Riau Islands from Wikipedia.

You also forgot to color Phú Quốc, which belongs to Vietnam in real-life.

The remainder of the claim that can be colored is now colored and will be updated momentarily once it is uploaded. The list of claims always supersedes the map if someone ever is uncertain. As long as it's part of Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Riau Islands, or anywhere else in your listed claim, it doesn't matter if it is or isn't colored in due to oversight or the mapper being embedded in far too much at once time.
