Esquarium Sign-Up & Map Thread [OLD | DO NOT POST]

Esquarium is a fun, active closed-world MT roleplaying and worldbuilding region.

Founded in 2011, Esquarium offers an active, engaging community, worldbuilding that is both well-developed and adaptive to new arrivals, and high-quality modern tech roleplaying. Set in a closed world and canon separate from the greater NS multiverse, we have an extensively-documented lore and roleplay opportunities open to all members, from military conflicts to diplomatic visits to location RPs to parliamentary shenanigans, and everything in between. Oh, and we have a snazzy Wikipedia-style map.

Interested? Feel free to hop on board! We are always looking for new members to help us build an interesting world. We don't expect you to be active every day and in every aspect of the region. More interested in writing IIwiki articles than character RPs? No problem. We welcome new and experienced players alike and we'd be glad to have any style of play.

Please complete the following application. You will be accepted after receiving TWO approvals. One of us will be with you shortly to approve you or offer some suggestions for revisions before accepting you. You will not be denied except in exceptional circumstances.

Approval panel: Ainin, Union of Akoren, Tuthina, Sjalhaven, Sjealand

Important notices for applicants (please read me!)
  • You may either link to a previous RP or write a paragraph or two from scratch for the RP sample. A good, professional news article is acceptable as an RP.
  • You may write about anything for your RP sample. Here's some ideas if you get stuck: Your country's generals inform you of an impending nuclear strike; An assassin strikes on the Queen's wedding day; A newspaper article about a hurricane
  • Please don't claim to be a great power from the start, and try to keep the population size reasonable. Remember that in real life, less than 6% of countries have over 100 million people and less than 12% have over 50 million people.
  • Please choose a contiguous spot over an island. If you really need to be an island, please explain why in the application.
  • We would prefer it if you placed your nation in a culturally realistic position (i.e. don't put Swedes in the middle of the African/Middle Eastern continent of Nautasia or Kenyans near the North Pole or Chinese speakers in the Nordic continent of Nordania).
  • Don't be afraid to edit your coastline to your liking. In fact, we highly encourage it!

Language(s): The languages natively spoken in your nation.
Main culture/ethnic group: Self-descriptive.

Capital: Self-descriptive.
Government type: A brief summary of your government system (e.g. "Unitary semi-presidential republic," "military junta," "highly decentralized confederation")
Nation description (at least a paragraph, please): Tell us about your nation's history and how it is today.
Map claim (Imgur link preferred): Please draw ragged, realistic borders. Coastlines are rarely ever perfectly straight or curved lines.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
What role do you envision yourself playing in international relations?: Give us an idea of what to expect from your nation in RP in terms of diplomatic and military actions. Write as much or as little as you feel is necessary.
Critically discuss the strengths of your nation (esp. military & economic) and how they may affect existing regional power structures: Please analyze your nation's military and financial strengths and the ways by which they could potentially affect the status quo in the region. Write as much or as little as you feel is necessary.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: Self-descriptive. If you don't think that we will ask you to do this, you may skip this question.

OOC STUFF
How did you hear about Esquarium?: Self-descriptive.
Other NS accounts: Please list any other notable identity by which you have gone in the past. You may TG Ainin if you don't want to answer publicly.
Roleplay sample: Either link us to a previous RP in which you participated or write some original content (at least a paragraph). This is just so that we can gauge your commitment to Esquarium's focus on worldbuilding, storytelling and roleplaying.

Anything else to add (optional): Self-descriptive.

BASIC DETAILS
IC name: Toksanese Commonwealth
Population: 64,155,000
Language(s): Thai, ICly known as Toksanese
Main culture/ethnic group:
GDP per capita (USD): $67,458
Capital: Hwanggum
Government type: Federal parliamentary republic
Nation description (at least a paragraph, please): The Toksanese Commonwealth (เครือจักรภพ ชาวตกซ่าน; Kherụ̄xcạkrp̣hph chāw Tks̀ān), commonly known as Toksan (ตกซ่าน; Tks̀ān), is a nation located in Borea, Esquarium. Toksan shares Land Borders with Ionland, Saint Hadrian and Kaona and Naval Borders with Kulsandia. The Commonwealth exhibits a population of 64,155,000; with the nation’s capital being Hwanggum in the nation’s southern provinces.

Becoming a Dominion of Lusatia in 1875, the Christian Republic governed the nation despite considerable distance. Nonetheless, the Commonwealth Government was established in 1950, where the nation had sought Independence from Lusatia through the Commonwealth Constitution of 1950. The Commonwealth Government is considered to be a Federal Republic, with the Head of State being the Prime Minister. The Chief Justice acts as a safeguard from the Commonwealth Government's actions due to the executive being part of the Commonwealth Diet, with the Judicial Branch holding the power to veto legislation violating the Constitution.

The economy of Toksan is considered to be market-orientated, although the Commonwealth Government has taken action to slightly regulate volatile sectors. The Largest Sectors of the nation’s economy is considered to be Manufacturing and Services; with Agriculture and Tourism coming a considerable distant third and fourth. Electronics, Pharmaceuticals, Beef and Rice are considered to be the nation’s largest exports.
Map claim (Imgur link preferred): http://i.imgur.com/NSeH68H.png

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
What role do you envision yourself playing in international relations?: Toksan is a middle power with a relatively weak military with little power projection. However, it compensates for its military weakness by having a modern, service-oriented economy that extends its influence beyond its borders. Its close economic integration with other liberal democracies means that Toksanese firms are somewhat influential throughout the Free World.
Critically discuss the strengths of your nation (esp. military & economic) and how they may affect existing regional power structures: Toksan has a very developed and high-tech economy, amongst the strongest in the region. This could potentially come into conflict with the Tengkong economic bloc's historically dominant presence in Borea.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: I would be willing to reduce my population to compensate for my high GDP per capita, so that the overall economy doesn't totally eclipse that of my poorer, larger neighbours.

OOC STUFF
How did you hear about Esquarium?: From a friend in the NSG Senate roleplay
Other NS accounts: None
Roleplay sample:

The tension in the room was palpable.

Half an hour ago, the mood had been relaxed. The Coke was flowing, the monitors went unattended, and Colonel Connors was joking around with the techies about James' chances with the spunky new Navy liaison officer. It was just another dull day at the Air Force Air Defence Command, for nothing interesting ever happened in Tantastan's skies. It all changed when the news came: the Chief of Staff had been taken hostage. General Robinson, or as we knew him, Ian, was more than just our commander. He was our friend. With his office down the hall from the radar room, he had personally trained every man and woman of the 151st, including myself.

We silently considered the situation in disbelief, when suddenly, an alien ringing sound filled the room. Fear was struck into our hearts by the mechanical tune. It was the red telephone, the emergency line that sat in the corner of the room collecting dust. James had the bad luck of sitting next to it, and picked up the handset with an audible gulp. He listened quietly to the caller, his facial expressions increasingly showing terror and immense sadness. When the call was over, he barely had enough strength to hang up. His arm shook as he reached for the End button. He took a deep breath and turned around, looking at each and every one of us in the eye. "That was Fighter Command. Ian was taken by the gunmen onto a... onto a plane. They're airborne and heading south. They'll be over the city in 10 minutes."

The constant tack-tack-tack of keyboards in the computer-filled room abruptly stopped. Everyone dropped what they were doing and thirty shocked heads jerked towards an increasingly despondent James. He continued.

"T-two fighters are trailing the plane. The civvies at Approach Control say the pilot is despondent." He paused to recompose himself. "That plane is a missile, and it's headed for downtown."
"What do they need from us?" asked the Colonel, speaking slowly to avoid betraying the incredible despair he felt.
"Our fighters have a radar lock on the jet. They need clearance to shoot."

A sigh echoed through the silent room. Not a sigh of relief but a sigh of sorrow. We knew what needed to happen. First seconds, then minutes passed, and we powerlessly watched three dots move across the map on our monitors, getting ever-closer to the city. Another phone call came through just as I was going to refresh the map for the umpteenth time. Once again, James had to pick up. He ended the call even sadder than he was before, and he stared at the Colonel for several seconds before speaking. "They need the decision, they need it now, Sir."

"Take it down."

Qinming has changed their map claim to under Namor. If you want to have a similar location I suggest trying to claim that area.

...that might be a bit of a problem, since Esquarium uses modern technology (as can be stated on both the title, and the first sentence, where it mentions how we are MT).

Well, you pretty much have to use modern technology if you want to participate fully in this region. If you try and use ancient Egyptian tech against someone with modern technology... at best, you'd be mocked, and at worst, you'd be ripe and easy pickings for stronger powers.
