Earth II v.5.0 [NEW Main Thread | OOC | Open RP]

Postby Earth_ Two » Sun Mar 04, 2018 8:26 am

Earth II
Version 5.00


Table of Contents

Introduction
Earth II is the longest running alternate-Earth RP on NationStates. Earth II was originally founded by Yerffej because "Earth 1" was full and there was no space available. This original incarnation of Earth II existed for some months before it died due to inactivity. Earth II was subsequently refounded as Earth II: Revitalization on November 13, 2004 by Colodia and Layarteb. After four years of consistent operation, Earth II had become the longest thread on the Jolt Forums with 24,189 posts. By then, it was the longest running alternate-Earth RP on NationStates. The main thread on our Jolt Forums was closed on July 25, 2009 with a total of 24,876 posts and 502,161 views. The first thread on our new NationStates forums operated until February 17, 2013, accumulating 10,140 posts and over 200,000 views. The second thread on our new NationStates forums operated until March 5, 2018, accumulating 3,421 posts and over 87,000 views. What you are reading now is the fifth incarnation of Earth II and the most drastically changed since Earth II: Revitalization.

Since its inception, Earth II has vacillated in membership from a peak of over eighty (80) members to as low as five (5). Some prestigious members of NationStates have cycled through our ranks over the years and over two hundred players on NationStates have, at some point in time, applied for or served as members of the Earth II Community. Each of them has left an indelible mark on our history and on our culture.

As a staple of NationStates, Earth II has served as a stable, writing-oriented, development community since its inception. We encourage interactive role-plays within our community. We are a full-spectrum operation, encouraging cooperative and story threads, factbooks, news posts, short stories, and so much more. Our goal is to improve the role-playing ability of each and every one of our members, past, present, and future. Many players have come out of Earth II with an improved role-playing ability and a better understanding for the mechanics of player-on-player interaction.

At Earth II, we stress quality over quantity. We exist as a semi-open community, requiring membership - and nothing more - to participate. Membership is open to all players on NationStates and our application review process is quick and efficient. We encourage all members of NationStates, both new and old, to join Earth II and our "little slice of NationStates," so to speak. Whether you want a well-defined geographic setting, a smaller community than overall NationStates offers, or you just want to be part of something that has existed on NationStates for over 13 years, we invite you to join our ranks.

The Earth II Moderators
Earth II has two classes of moderators. There is the General Moderator, whose job it is to oversee all functions related to Earth II. He or she is charged with running, maintaining, and promoting Earth II as a community and an RP group. He or she has overall and total authority over Earth II and is responsible for updating the main thread as well as tending to disputes and providing insight to new and old members alike. This position is presently filled by Layarteb.

The second class of moderator is the Application & History Moderator, whose job it is to oversee and review for approval (or denial) all new applications and changes to the historical canon. He or is she is charged with reviewing all submitted applications and ensuring that they comply with all decrees of the Earth II Charter. He or she has full authority over approval or rejection of applicants to Earth II. Additionally, he or she is charged with reviewing additions, deletions, and modifications to the historical canon to ensure that they comply with the established Earth II History. This position is presently vacant.

Discord
The Earth II Discord server is located here. We invite all members, prospective members, and people who just want to "hang out" to join us there and to chat freely. Members of Earth II will be afforded a special permissions level that will allow you access to the IC section. Non-members will not have this privilege for the time being but they are free to access our #general and our Voice Chat channels.

Upon joining, please review the rules in the #overview channel. There are two sections for chatting. The General section contains the #general channel and our Voice Chat. The #general channel is for all OOC discussions of any nature. The IC section contains the #canon channel, the #collaboration channel, and the #roleplaying channel. Please use the #canon channel for any discussions specifically related to the Earth II Historical Canon. The #collaboration channel is for use by all members who wish to collaborate on posts. The #roleplaying channel is a channel strictly related to your nation and all things IC. Please do your best to keep posts in the appropriate channels.

Please come in and introduce yourself and if you are a member you will be promoted to the Members permission group. The Moderators for Earth II are the same as those for the Discord server.

Change History
  • Version 5.00 [05-MAR-18]: New thread

OOC: Earth II is not an RP for the lazy or lackadaisical. We expect that you will approach this RP with a sense of maturity and a sense of commitment, regardless of your age. If you cannot commit to this RP then please do not join. We have been here since 2004 so we will be here for a long time to come. You can always come back when you have time to dedicate to this RP. It takes a lot of work to keep this RP together and haphazard claims and halfhearted attempts merely cause unnecessary and unneeded work for the staff and the members. It does not bode well in your favor for future attempts at role-playing in this or other communities as many members of Earth II belong to some of the more prestigious role-playing regions on NationStates.

Furthermore, do not submit an application without first reading ALL of the rules, claims, maps, histories, and other tools associated with this RP, which can be found in this and the following posts in this thread. If you claim without doing so, you can expect to be rebuffed in an embarrassing fashion. If you are too lazy to read then you are too lazy to join, please come back when you are.

If you are in this latter category, do not complain when your application is either ignored or denied. If you need to be walked by your hand through this thread, you are not ready to join. We will gladly answer all of your questions but we will not hold your hand through the process. We are a welcoming community but we will not encourage your laziness.

If you wish to found another alternate-Earth and you wish to use any of Earth IIs resources, be it the map, the charter, or the format you may do so with these conditions only. Firstly, you must cite us as a source. Secondly, you must let us know (via telegram is usually best). If we can assist you in your endeavor, do not hesitate to ask.

Earth II
The Earth II Charter


Preamble
T
his is the Charter of Earth II and it serves as our written constitution. We are a Modern Tech, alternate Earth, role-playing community. We use the planet Earth and the universe around us as our canvas but we exist in our own dimension and universe, independent of the happenings of greater NationStates. Earth II is thus a semi-closed community; membership is open to all players of NationStates but one must be part of Earth II to take part in Earth II. Earth II is not explicitly a democracy; however, from time-to-time, decisions affecting the community as a whole may be put to a simple, majority vote. Despite this, Earth II embraces the freedom of speech and the freedom of expression. Every member has a voice and he or she may use it without fear of repercussion. The moderator(s) of Earth II will never act in such a way as to jeopardize the sanctity or the spirit of Earth II nor will any member be removed from our ranks without cause. Earth II has survived now in excess of 13 years (as of the writing of this Charter) and it shall survive much longer with the dedication, hard work, and commitment of all of its members.

Decree I: Definitions of Membership
Earth II shall have three member classes. Each member class shall be of equal standing as a member of our community. The classes are Full Member, New Member, and Partial Member. They are defined thusly.

  • Full Member: A Full Member is the standard membership on Earth II. A Full Member has joined our community, completed an introductory thread, and he or she has a set, established canon.
  • New Member: A New Member is a member who while part of our community, does not have an established canon yet. New Members to Earth II exist as such until they fulfill all of the obligations required to be upgraded to a Full Member. This means that they have had their application approved, their introductory thread completed, and an established canon approved. Until such time as this occurs, the member will remain in New Member status. New Members are limited to claims under 3,500,000 km² (1,351,358 mi²) and they cannot make Occupation or NPC claims.
  • Partial Member: A Partial Member is any member of our community who does not hold a land claim or is not seeking a land claim. He or she may role-play within our community as a third-party organization, group, individual, government, NPC state, et cetera. They must be sponsored by a Full Member who will sponsor their organization, group, individual, government, NPC state, et cetera as part of their own claims.

Decree II: Membership Requirements
Earth II is the oldest running Earth-based RP on NationStates and that is because of the dedication of our members past, present, and future. However, for Earth II to persist, each and every member must provide support. Below are the requirements of members of Earth II.

  • Provision 1: There is only one account per member. Member may not join Earth II with other NationStates accounts to make separate claims.
  • Provision 2: Members who are deleted by NationStates for whatever reason (inactivity, moderator action, et cetera) are no longer members of Earth II. As you must be a member of NationStates to be a part of our community, if you are not a member of NationStates, then you are not a member of Earth II.
  • Provision 3: Members that do not contribute to Earth II for a period of sixty (60) days or more are automatically removed from Earth II membership. Their land will be returned back to unclaimed state for prospective members or current members. Established canon may be removed at the discretion of the Earth II moderator(s).
  • Provision 4: Any member may request to be put on Vacation Mode for whatever reason, be it personal, job-related, military, et cetera if they plan to be inactive for sixty (60) or more days. Members must specifically request Vacation Mode to the Earth II moderator(s). Details are not required but it is prudent to advise us of any potential for changes. Vacation Mode is limited to six (6) consecutive months. It is renewable upon request.
  • Provision 5: Joining Earth II requires the posting of an application. The application requires approval from the Earth II moderator(s). The Earth II moderator(s) reserve the right to deny applications for whatever reason they deem necessary and they are not required to provide a reason for denial; however, a reason may be provided privately upon request.

Decree III: Code of Conduct
All members of Earth II are here because they want to be here. As such, all members will be treated with respect in both IC (in-character) and OOC (out-of-character) mediums. Maturity in members is not a "nice-to-have," it is a requirement. Regardless of your age, you are expected to act like an adult. If you cannot maintain proper behavior and decorum, you will be removed from this community.

  • Provision 1: All members of Earth II are expected to be cordial and respectful of one another regardless of their or your personal politics and/or social views. Earth II members come from all over the world and what is acceptable in your country may not be acceptable in theirs and vice versa. Do not presume that your norms are also theirs.
  • Provision 2: We encourage debate and discourse from all members. We encourage members to share new ideas, impart knowledge, and to show one another what life is like outside of one's respective country. However, debates are not to be done in our main thread. Debates should be held off-line whether it is privately between members or in our Discord.
  • Provision 3: It goes without saying that all members of Earth II are subject to the rules and the requirements of NationStates. As we exist within this site, we must abide by its rules. Any disagreements you may have with players or moderators outside of Earth II will not be brought into Earth II.
  • Provision 4: Earth II respects the freedom of speech and the freedom of expression. We are not pro-censorship nor will we provide you with "trigger warnings" or "safe spaces." You will be exposed to ideas here that conflict with your own. You can accept that other people have different opinions and ideas or you cannot. If you choose the latter, it is up to you to either cope with this or leave.
  • Provision 5: With respect to IC activities, there is to be no god modding, wanking, meta gaming, actions of deceit, et cetera. There is no "Ignore Cannon" on Earth II and no legitimate action can be ignored. Illegitimate actions naturally fall into the aforementioned list of "don'ts." In addition, there is to be no Transferring of Land or going into Vacation Mode to avoid the consequences of a thread.
  • Provision 6: While Earth II threads are closed to non-Earth II members, any thread inviting interaction with another member cannot be closed.
  • Provision 7: In instances of dispute settlement, all disputes should be brought up privately to the moderator(s) via telegram or private message on Discord. The main thread should not be a place for tit-for-tat posts, especially considering that these posts are often made in states of compromised emotions. It is always advised in these situations to "think twice, before posting once."
  • Provision 8: The language of Earth II is English, this because the default language on NationStates is English. If you wish to use a non-English language in a thread, we encourage it; however, please provide the translation in the post.

Decree IV: Claiming Land
Claiming land is the most integral part of Earth II. It is how you become a member of Earth II or how you expand your nation. As such, it is your responsibility to read through all established canon and current land claims prior to making any new claims. All claims require the completion of a thread to a satisfactory level before they can be added to your list of established claims. Bear in mind that land you are claiming may have established canon on it, which must be respected.

  • Provision 1: There are five classes of claims: Contested, Established, NPC, Occupation, and Pending The sum total of all of these claims cannot exceed 18,000,000 km² (6,949,839 mi²). This is referred to as the Claim Ceiling. Each class of claim is defined as such.
    • Contested: Contested claims are claims that are being fought over by two (2) or more parties. Any claim, regardless of status or class can be contested by any member of Earth II. In Contested situations, established canon must be respected by all parties. The member making the initial claim shall be awarded Primary Claimant status, which allows the member to set the tone of the claim; however, they may not violate any code of conduct as outlined in Decree III.
    • Established: Established claims are "completed" claims. These are part of your nation and are defined as such because you have completed a claim thread for them. These claims are not removable unless by Contest or membership forfeiture.
    • NPC: NPC claims are Established claims that exist for role-play purposes. They are governed by a different set of provisions, as outlined in Decree V.
    • Occupation: Occupation claims are claims that are not explicitly part of your nation but which are not defined as NPC claims. A Full Member may not have any more than two (2) Occupation claims in any twelve (12) month period and the sum total of Occupation claims cannot exceed 300,000 km² (115,830.6 mi²). Occupation claims do not have an expiration but the excessive use of Occupation claims may result in denial of such claims. They mainly exist to serve role-play and interaction purposes.
    • Pending: Pending claims are new claims. They are claims are not yet part of a member's established nation but they are in the process of becoming part of it. Pending claims require the completion of a claim thread to a satisfactory level before they can be awarded.
  • Provision 2: All claims require approval from the moderator(s) of Earth II and the moderator(s) can deny a claim for any reason, though a justification must be provided. A claim thread must be posted within four (4) days of the approval of the claim. Any claim that does not have a claim thread posted within this timeframe is automatically invalidated. All claims that sit idle without a post from the claimant for thirty (30) or more days are automatically invalidated.
  • Provision 3: All Earth II threads must contain the tag [Earth II] in the title. This tag differentiates our threads from other threads on this site. It lets members know that this is an Earth II thread and likewise, it lets non-members know the same. It also exists as a form of advertising for our community. There is a specific form provided for thread announcements, which must be used for the claim to be accepted.
  • Provision 4: All IC posts must include a date, a time, and a location. This will help members keep track of events and allow them to post accordingly.
  • Provision 5: Members may transfer land to one another as freely as they wish. The transferring of land can be done without a claim thread; however, threads are encouraged.
  • Provision 6: A single block of claims must be completed before a new block of claims can be made. Claims cannot be added to a block unless they are specifically related to that block.

Decree V: Non-Player Character (NPC) Claims
In an effort to encourage members to branch out from their claims and role-play with the land around them, members may establish certain Non-Player Character or NPC claims. The requirements for such claims are more stringent than other claims. The provisions below establish those requirements.

  • Provision 1: Full Members may make one (1) NPC claim per twelve (12) month period. NPC claims cannot exceed 2,000,000 km² (772,204.3 mi²).
  • Provision 2: An NPC claim has a twelve (12) month lifespan. After twelve (12) months, it must be converted to an Established or a Pending claim, or it must be renewed, which is subject to Earth II moderator(s) approval. There is no limit to the number of renewals; however, renewals can be denied on the basis of inactivity of an NPC claim. NPC claims will not be made to deny other members the ability to claim that land. Renewal requires reposting of the NPC claim Summary of Usage.
  • Provision 3: Initial approval for an NPC claim requires the completion of a full NPC Claim Application, which includes the nation fact book, a thorough and detailed history of the NPC claim its beginning to the present time, a summary of your intention with the NPC claim, and a summarized explanation of the NPC claim. Examples are provided and any member unsure of the specifics is invited to ask prior to making a post. The requirements to make an NPC claim are thus more stringent than a regular land claim to avoid NPC claims dominating the map.
  • Provision 4: All members of Earth II can utilize NPC claims; however, they must respect the owner's established canon and wills of the claim. NPC claims can be claimed by other members as land claims; however, they follow the same rules and provisions of Contested as outlined in Decree IV, Provision 1.

Decree VI: Religions
No topic in human history is as divisive as religion. In order to ensure that real-life religion is not perverted or destroyed, and thus left intact, the following provisions govern religion on Earth II.

  • Provision 1: All major, real-life religions shall have their dogma, doctrine, writings, beliefs, et cetera protected and they shall reflect what exists in real-life.
  • Provision 2: Heads, governing councils, or other titular organizations of real-life religions (as qualified in Provision 1) cannot be claimed by any one member and they shall exist as NPCs.
  • Provision 3: All real-life religions (as qualified in Provision 1) shall exist in whatever holy abode they claim in real-life. The territory whereby these locations reside shall rest with the member who owns the territory and no territory shall be forcefully removed from anyone through OOC measures though they can be invaded and annexed through IC measures. Controlling the territory does not mean you can control the religion, as stated in Provision 1.
  • Provision 4: All members may freely role-play lower individuals within all real-life religions (as qualified in Provision 1) in their own territory (e.g. bishops, cardinals, imams, et cetera) as they so desire.
  • Provision 5: All members may freely create their own religions or branches of other religions, which they can have full control over, which will not exist as an NPC but as a member-controlled entity.
  • Provision 6: Individuals wishing to assassinate a head of a religion or other major office-holder will have the opportunity to do so through IC measures only after unanimous approval from the Earth II moderator(s). The intent, the story, and the desire must be discussed with the Earth II moderator(s), who will decide if this is a move that is contributory to our community or just nonsense. This will allow for actual IC measures but prevent a random new member from killing off a major religious figure and thus damaging our community permanently. At the same time, all members wishing to endeavor upon this undertaking will be made painfully and clearly aware that IC consequences will follow and they cannot be ignored or avoided.
  • Provision 7: Additionally, real-life non-religious organizations will be treated with the same rules and regulations as the above but will be addressed on a case-by-case basis as seen by the Earth II moderator(s).

Decree VII: Switching Nations
From time to time, members may become bored with their current nations or want to branch out and do something new. In an effort not to stifle creativity, the following provisions are put in place for the switching of nations.

  • Provision 1: Any member may make one switch of his or her nation to an entirely new nation without providing justification. The switch requires a completely new set of land claims, a new application, and a new claim thread as if you were a new member to our community. Any previously unfinished threads or claims will be cut off at that current point in time. In the case of contests, switching to a new nation forfeits your status as Primary Claimant. It is strongly advised that all threads and claims be finished prior to this shift. Switching NationStates user accounts is not required.
  • Provision 2: Any member wishing to make a second switch of his or her nation to an entirely new nation may do so with the approval of the Earth II moderator(s). Justification for the switch must be provided to the satisfaction of the Earth II moderator(s). Any denial of this switch will be explainable by the Earth II moderator(s). In the instance of an approval, the second switch follows the same provisions as the first with regards to threads, claims, and contests. It is strongly advised that major thought be given before requesting a second switch.
  • Provision 3: There are no provisions at this time for a third switch. Should a member request a third switch it will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis by the Earth II moderator(s).
  • Provision 4: A member may request that his or her prior nation be made into an NPC claim; however, this is subject to all rules and provisions as established in Decree IV, Provision 1 and Decree V. The NPC claim will be part of your new nation.

  • NPC Summary: The East African Republic is a nation-state in the Horn of Africa, consisting of the regions of, Eritrea, Djibouti, and Somalia. The East African Republic, as it stands in late 2019, is a weary nation that has suffered years of neglect from the top levels of government, and the ravages of repressive crackdowns against growing rebellion. The economy of the East African Republic, whilst possessing potential across the board, has suffered as a result, as has the national infrastructure, combined with an increased lawlessness in some parts of the countryside. The East African Republic is under the thumb of an authoritarian dictator, Emmanuel Xavier, who after founding the Republic in the 1980s, underwent a psychological break and became increasingly repressive, although this process toke some years to fully manifest and, to a great extent, Xavier’s original popularity shielded him from opposition for over two decades. As Xavier became increasingly repressive, and conditions and infrastructure outside the cities (where sycophants and enablers profited from his steadily spiralling mental condition, vocal opposition grew in the first decade of the 21st Century, especially after the advent of Social Media, and a formal Rebellion was declared in late 2010. Civil War has raged since, between the Government, based in the Somali heartland of Somalia, and the multi-ethnic rebels of Eritrea and Djibouti. The United Federation of Nations brokered a ceasefire in the summer of 2019, with UDF Peacekeepers being deployed into the East African Republic to keep the two sides apart, with its main base in Camp Lemonnier, physically placing the peacekeepers in between the opposing forces.
  • Summary of Use: Involvement is welcomed and invited, as there is significant potential for various storylines in this kind of environment. However, I would request that no use that would fundamentally alter the nature of the situation be made without conferring with me first.

  • NPC Summary: The Federation of Mexico is a shell of what was once a massive country, the Empire of Nuevo Rica. When it was formed, the Empire of Nuevo Rica reached a peak of approximately 2,000,000 mi² (5,180,000 km²) of territory. Founded in 1537 upon the defeat of the Aztec Empire, the country spread out to encompass all of the Caribbean and South America from Colombia to French Guiana. However, gradual wars and independence movements has whittled the country down to only its Mexican territories. The country's true reckoning came in 1985 with a large earthquake that destroyed not only Mexico City but also the sitting government and the last vestiges of the Empire of Nuevo Rica. Since then, the country's rulers have largely been military generals who have retired their commissions to serve as President of Mexico. Corruption is rampant at all walks of life. The country's economy is virtually dependent on its neighbors. The military of Mexico is capable and well-supported by the Empire of Layarteb. It has modern equipment, which is well-maintained. Training and discipline lack in some areas but overall, the country's military is more than adequate for its needs. The political appointment of general and flag officers however does lead to cronyism, which causes some problems in the military's doctrine, chain of command, and ability to function. Corruption in the military is not uncommon. Since the mid-1980s, the country has been embroiled in a longstanding war on both legal and military fronts against drug cartels, which by 2018 have become subnational entities unto themselves. The country receives significant amounts of aid from the Empire of Layarteb to fight the drug cartels and to ensure the drug trade is kept in check; however, this is a never-ending war with little chance of success.
  • Summary of Use: The Federation of Mexico NPC exists as a failed state within the Empire of Layarteb's sphere of influence. The country's problems with drug cartels will be profoundly influential upon past, present, and future Layartebian history. The country's age alone shows it will have significant interaction with Layarteb going back several hundred years. The NPC will be used as part of both single-player stories and multi-player stories. It will be deeply intertwined with Layarteb on many levels and its form and function will show this much. It is intended for this NPC to act as a playground for the Empire of Layarteb in terms of black operations as well as geopolitically. For a complete history download this PDF.

  • Land Claim(s):
    • Yemen (part)
  • NPC Summary: The Confederation of Yemeni Emirates is a small country on the southwestern portion of the Arabian Peninsula. The country was officially formed in its present state on May 22, 1996, with the signing of the Unification Treaty of Aden. This treaty unified the twenty emirates of Yemen into a single confederation ruled from the port city of Aden. Human settlement in the region dates back to 5,000 BC with Islamic influence on the country going back as far as the year 622. Presently, the country is ruled by twenty tribal kings or emirs who act as state governors do but who have near absolute authority in their respective tribal territory. Each of the twenty emirates of the country appoint three representatives to sit in the Yemeni legislature, named the Federal Legislative Council, and the country has an Islamic-style justice system though it does not embrace sharia law as a whole. Some of the emirates however do practice this religious law. The country features a dual executive, each of which are appointed to their position by consensus vote amongst the twenty emirs who form the Federal Executive Council. There are no terms of office. The other emirs serve as functionaries in the executive branch of the country. Islam is the official religion of the country and adherents to Sunni Islam make up more than 53% of the country's populace while adherents to Shia Islam make up approximately 45% of the country's populace. The remaining 2% are adherents of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and other religions, including tribal religions. The country does not embrace the freedom of religion but it does not active persecute non-Muslims. Politically, the country is stable. The emirs wield immense power within their emirates but as this is largely a tribal society, fierce and often deadly rivalries exist. The country's economy is officially considered under the definition of dirigisme. It is a capitalist economy in which the state plays a strong, directive role. Corruption is rampant however. Militarily, the country has an outdated force that is subject to significant amounts of nepotism. The vast majority of soldiers are not well paid though high-ranking officers live a life of lavish luxury. Employment by the military offers only "job security" and the ability to make money via corruption. Equipment is maintained just enough to keep it functioning but there is little room for modernization in the country's budget. The active forces largely exist to protect the country from invasion of lesser-capable or equal-standing nations. They number approximately 80,000 men. They are backed up by a sizeable and extremely corrupt National Police of 50,000 men. Approximately 20,000 militiamen serve strictly as soldiers of the emirs. Like most Islamic societies, the country is not a bastion of human rights. Women are subjugated but they are not completely enslaved. In most of the emirates, women are capable of working, driving on their own, and going out without chaperones. In the more rural regions, this is not the case and women in these areas are required to cover themselves completely. The biggest problem existing within the country is the present of the Islamic terrorist group Al-Shams. Al-Shams has burrowed itself into the rural regions of Yemen where they use the terrain and the religious fervency of the rural populaces to their advantage. Al-Shams' forces largely outclass the military, the national police, and tribal warriors in training; however, they are incapable of defeating all three entities to take over the country completely. They wield immense power over some emirs who support their cause secretly be providing funding and resources. The country's biggest international gripe is with the Empire of Layarteb, which occupies the island of Socotra off of the Yemeni coast. In addition to this, the Empire of Layarteb has unilaterally acted against Al-Shams within Yemen's borders on multiple occasions.
  • Summary of Use: The Confederation of Yemeni Emirates NPC exists as a place for all members in Earth II to use. It is not to be invaded and replaced without major discussion amongst all members of the community. The purpose of this NPC is to provide a home for our Al-Qaeda-like terrorist group named Al-Shams. It also exists to provide a sandbox of activities for all members. The country's problems with Al-Shams present an interesting dynamic for members. While some emirs support the jihadist group, most do not. Due to Al-Shams capabilities however, the military is ill equipped to fight them without facing major casualties, the National Police is too corrupt and unmotivated to stop them, and the tribal forces are too untrained, undisciplined, and unexperienced to fight against the jihadists. All threads and stories within this NPC should be cleared with the Earth II moderator(s) ahead of time just to ensure the most accurate information. No legitimate or well-plotted thread will be denied.

    • Total:
  • Allies:
    • Al-Judhr
  • Opponents:
  • Major Attacks & Battles:
  • NPC Summary: Al-Shams is a worldwide terrorist group similar to and modeled on Al-Qaeda. Their base of operation is in the Confederation of Yemeni Emirates and they are engaged in a war against all non-Muslims. Unlike Al-Qaeda however, Al-Shams does not regard Shia Muslims as heretical. Instead, Al-Shams believes that a union between Sunni and Shia Muslims against the heretical, non-Muslim nations of the world would provide it with the most manpower to fight successfully. The group is led by a 4-man executive group, which seeks advice and support from a 10-man Shura Council. Until 2016, that council was led by Mullah Shahir Alhasan Najjar but he was killed in a joint Layartebian-British raid in the Chitral Region of Pakistan. The group is led by Sheik Syed Hassan and Sinan Mahir Aswad. Their operations are directed by Humam Tariq Qureshi and Rabah Hakem Moghadam. Al-Shams' leadership is devoted to the cause, which is the ruination of Western society and the implementation of a worldwide, Islamic Caliphate. Al-Shams has many branches and affiliate groups that swear loyalty to Al-Shams. In doing so, they bring upon themselves resources, financial and logistical support, and the inclusion into the wider, Al-Shams network across the globe.
  • Summary of Use: Al-Shams is usable by all members of Earth II. They are directly linked with the Confederation of Yemeni Emirates NPC. The main group of Al-Shams is controlled by the Earth II moderator(s) to ensure that they remain an NPC within our group. If you want to RP with the main group, please ask us for help and assistance. All members are free to create their own affiliate or branch groups of Al-Shams within their own claims and/or NPCs. In this instance, doing so gives you 100% control over the group you create.

Al-Judhr
  • Organization Name: Al-Judhr
  • Active Dates: Spring 2013
  • Ideology: Anti-Imperialism, Islamism, Islamic Nationalism, Sharia
  • Leaders:
    • Supreme Chieftain: Aamir Yousef Karim
  • Area of Operations:
    • Pakistan (Balochistan, FATA, Frontier Regions, Rural Areas)
  • Size: 6,000 - 14,000
  • Allies:
    • Al-Shams
  • Opponents:
    • British Empire
  • Major Attacks & Battles:
    • Rafat David Bombing - RAF Rafat David is a major Royal Air Force base in the Levant, home to the theater level command LEVAIRCOM. Host to a large number of units, it was attacked by actors of Al-Judhr on March 7, 2014. The attackers detonated two stolen fuel trucks on the base's western perimeter, and rushed through the breach in the perimeter with an additional four VBIED. Two were disabled and stopped by responding security forces; however, the remaining two detonated near a barracks and two hangars. The attack claimed the lives of more than one hundred RAF personnel, mostly from those who were in the barracks at the time of the IED explosion. Four Viper F.3's were also lost when their hangars were destroyed by the second VBIED.
    • AB40 Massacre - AB40 was a Pakistani settlement in Balochistan along the N40 highway in southwestern Pakistan, home to around 60 to 120 residents. The settlement was also the site of a patrol base for the Northdale Rifles Regiment, which was stationed out of the nearby Fort Loxington Green. In the early morning hours of August 11, 2014, a group of approximately 40 to 80 Al-Judhr insurgents attacked the settlement and the patrol base, which currently had only a single squad there. The garrison and settlement were completely wiped out and the insurgents then set an ambush in the settlement, using IEDs, mines, and other such traps for any responding soldiers. After no contact with the base for 9 hours, the regiment sent a platoon to investigate, which walked right into the ambush. After two days of heavy fighting, an entire platoon of the Northdale Rifles were dead before the insurgents were eliminated. A lack of airpower and the remoteness of the battle, as well as the nature of the Rifles (light infantry with no heavy armor) were blamed for the losses.
  • NPC Summary: The Al-Judhr network was founded originally as a response to the re-integration of Pakistan into the British Empire. It was designed to attempt to combat them out of the northern heavily underpopulated regions to try to create a rump state. Enlarged, it is now seeking to stop British and other foreign interests alike in the region.
  • Summary of Use: Will be used heavily in an upcoming thread covering Afghanistan, which I've hinted at in the Short Story Index.

The Crusade was perhaps the largest undertaking the Angevin domain had ever undertaken, and it was at an ill-time for it as well; the wars in the closing years of the 17th century in the Indus Delta, valley and Punjab regions bled the crown dry, all trying to appease William IV's visions. Despite the victory, there remained higher tensions at home in Europe with the HRE, whose Emperor was rumored to have strayed from the Catholic Church, along with a number of Electors who now looked hungrily at the Angevin domain. Follow the story of Samuel Danvers, a minor noble who is a military leader in the Crusade.

        • Classification Tag(s): Claim
        • Synopsis: The Imperial Horizons covers the military expedition referred to by modern Briton historians as The Eastern Crusade, which was triggered by King Robert III's visions of returning to the grandeur of famed ancestors, such as Richard the Lionheart. The Crusade was perhaps the largest undertaking the Angevin domain had ever undertaken, and it was at an ill-time for it as well; the wars in the closing years of the 17th century in the Indus Delta, valley and Punjab regions bled the crown dry, all trying to appease William IV's visions. Despite the victory, there remained higher tensions at home in Europe with the HRE, whose Emperor was rumored to have strayed from the Catholic Church, along with a number of Electors who now looked hungrily at the Angevin domain. Follow the story of Samuel Danvers, a minor noble who is a military leader in the Crusade.

Please use the form below for the submission and/or revision of historical canon.  The [b]DATE[/b] should be filled out as "Month Day, Year" (January 12, 2018).  It is not necessary to fill out AD on years but it is necessary to fill out BC.  When writing years in BC it is required to use a comma separating thousands (e.g. 12,000 BC) but this is not done with AD (e.g. 2018).  The use of anything other than BC and AD will be replaced with BC and AD.  The [b]USERNAME[/b] field should be your username on this site.  If you are listing multiple users then they are to be listed alphabetically (e.g. Layarteb, The Roman Star Republic).  When listing NPCs the format is the nation's short form name and (NPC) following (e.g. Mexico (NPC)).  Use as many lines as necessary.  Be as specific as you can with dates.  For dates in modern times, if it is possible, use the exact date.  It is acceptable to use a range of dates.  If you wish to denote broader time spans you can also use seasons.  For winter, you are to use "Early Winter" if it is January - March or "Late Winter" if it is December.  The seasons are Early/Late Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn.  Please been consistent with your naming conventions.  Do not use ambiguous references. For example, the Empire of Layarteb is often written as "the Empire." This should not be done as it is ambiguous. Use proper formatting, grammar, and presentation in this history. It will be reviewed before acceptance.  For additions, please fill out only the first section.  For revisions, please use both sections with the revision in the first section and the original of what is being changed in the second section.  For deletions, please fill out only the second section.

Earth II
Frequently Asked Questions


Question 1: Is Earth II "Hard MT"?
While Earth II is a modern-tech (MT), we are not a "hard-MT" environment. You are welcome to bring your own designs and designs of non-Earth II members to your nation. They must however fit the mold of modern-tech. There is no formal process for doing this but bear in mind, this tech can be judged and be deemed unfit for modern-tech at any point in time. If you are unsure if something is modern-tech or not, ask, we will give you an honest answer.

Question 2: Why does Earth II not have a dedicated region?
Many of our members belong to role-playing and/or closed regions. To require them to create either a new puppet or to move their account to a dedicated Earth II Region would be selfish of us. We don't want to upset anything you may have with other groups and/or regions. In addition, creating a region offers us nothing that this thread provides.

Question 3: Do I have to join your Discord?
You do not have to join Earth II Discord; however, it is recommended. It is a good way to communicate with members and to receive up-to-date information concerning changes. It's also a great place to ask questions.

Question 4: Do I have to read everything in the intro?
You really should read everything. In the past, we have found that over 90% of questions or mistakes were easily rectified had the individual in question read the opening posts. We know they are long but we put a lot of effort and information into them. We have a saying, "If you're too lazy to read the posts, you're too lazy to be in Earth II."

Question 5: What if the land I want is claimed?
You have two options: 1) Speak with the member holding the land and attempt to negotiate some manner of trade or 2) Offer a contest to the claim. You can find information on the latter in the Earth II Charter. There is nothing saying that a member has to cooperate with you on the former but he or she is required to respond to the latter. Keep in mind that if you're going to contest a claim, you need to make sure you abide by all rules within the code of conduct.

Question 6: Why are new members limited on land area?
New Members are limited on land area strictly to protect the amount of work involved with setting up members. Because we have gone through a reset, we want to avoid any entanglements. We also want to see that you are dedicated to the community. If you were to make a claim and submit a detailed history, this removes the New Member classification for you. Simply put, if you do the work, you will be rewarded; if you do not do the work, then you will be limited. This isn't to say you cannot be a part of the community; it merely exists to protect those who put in 100% versus those who put in 50%.

Question 7: What tool do you use to judge land area?
We use Wikipedia because it is the most accessible and the most reliable for land areas. If you use Google Chrome with the translation feature you can also utilize non-English or non-Native versions of Wikipedia. These may offer land area where your native (English too) does not list them.

Question 8: What if I have questions that aren't listed?
Feel free to ask us in this thread or Earth II Discord.

Earth II Relaunched!


Since November 13, 2004, Earth II has been a staple on NationStates. Over 200 members of the NationStates community have cycled through our ranks over the past 13+ years and we've still got plenty of life left in us.

Effective immediately, Earth II has been relaunched and with a lot to offer:
  1. Our map has been stricken of all NPCs and player-reserved claims
  2. Our historical canon has been wiped clean, letting you decide your nation without the handcuffs of previously established histories.
  3. Gone are the population-claim caps, which limited smaller players from making large claims on the map.

Earth II is the longest running alternate Earth RP on NationStates and for good reason. Our moderation team and our members are dedicated to the persistence of this RP for many years to come. We emphasize cooperative and story-based RPs amongst our members and we encourage the creative art that is writing. It doesn't matter how long you've been on NationStates; Earth II will welcome you. If you're looking for a fun and dedicated RP community, think about popping in and joining. As 24-hour diners say, "We're always open!"

We hope to see you soon and we hope to see you stay for a while.

Welcome all old and new members to Earth II version 5.0. As the post just above states, this is a relaunch of Earth II with the most radical changes to date! We've wiped the map clean of past player claims, NPCs, and pending claims. We've also wiped our historical canon free. New members have complete and total latitude to create their own nations without the handcuffs of abiding by past history. If you're interested in joining, we're interested in having you!

To get things started, all existing members will be limited to a claim of 1,000,000 km² for a 3-mo period starting now. They cannot make new claims unrelated to these until these claims are finished. This is to give New Members a chance to claim land.

The below claim will be my contribution to this.

Earth II
New Claim Form


Please fill out the below form to place a new claim unrelated to a new application. This form is only for members of Earth II who have Established Claims. Make sure you do the math on your claims and post it in square kilometers or km². Separate all claims with their own list bullet. You do not have to do the math on the individual pieces of the claim, only the claim as a whole.

  • Claim Total (km²): 199,145.091 km²
    • Brazil (Ceará)
    • Brazil (Rio Grande do Norte)

In addition, this will let us know if we have to be mindful of studies (if you are a student). We also ask your fluency in English due to the fact that English is the primary language of this community. It is all right if you are not a native speaker of English, we have and have had many non-native speakers. In our experiences, many of them have been better speakers of English than native-born speakers. Please submit at least one RP example (you may choose whichever sample you feel fits you the best). Please do not submit more than two.

  • RP Sample(s): I currently lack any active, of this year (or last year) RPs, however, I have been a member of Earth II before and ask that that be taken into consideration. I apologise for the lack of active RP examples.

Section 4: Terms and Conditions
Terms and Conditions is a phrase we're all familiar with in this day and age. This is not like a software company wishing to have access to every facet of your life. You are simply asked to affirm that you have read our Charter and that you are accepting the requirements of this community. Please answer "Yes" or "No."

  • Have you read our Charter?: Yes.
  • Do you understand the requirements of Earth II?: Yes.

New Thread Announcement Form


Please fill out the form below to announce a new thread. You should list yourself as the Thread Owner unless this a joint-effort. Then please list all owners alphabetically. Location should be a three step process: Continent, Region, Specific Location. For "Continent" and "Region" please refer to and use the regions listed on our Threads post. The Classification Tag(s) should include one, some, or all of the following and any additional tags you wish to cite: "Claim," "Introduction," "NPC," "Story," "War." The Synopsis should include a brief summary in two or three sentences about the thread and lastly the Miscellaneous Notes should include any OOC comments. If there is an OOC Thread attached, link it here and also advise if this thread is "Closed" as in it is a story.

  • Huitzilopochtli's Revenge
    • Thread Owner(s): Layarteb
    • Location: Western Hemisphere, North America & Western Hemisphere, South America
    • Classification Tag(s): Claim, NPC, Story
    • Synopsis: The People's Republic of Fortaleza serves as a thorn in the side of the Empire of Layarteb chiefly because of its communist ideology. In reality, there is much more about the PRF than its communist ideology and that includes a direct link to Mexico's supercartel, Los Soldados de Puebla.
    • Miscellaneous Notes: While this covers my claims for Brazil (Ceará, Rio Grande do Norte) it is also a story involving the Federation of Mexico NPC. It's open to participants of all types but please coordinate your storyline with me via TG or Discord so that we are aligned.

    • Synopsis: The King of Bohemia has died, Long Live the King. The Duke of Moravia is set to be coronated as the new King, should other forces not have their nefarious way.
    • Miscellaneous Notes: All are welcome, this thread is more about the intricacies of nobles and how far one can stretch the meaning of loyalty than it is about anything else. Politics and skulduggery abound. Beware who your characters talk to, not all are friend, and not all foes are as foe as they seem.
