Minyang (Russian: Минян, simplified Chinese: 闵洋) is a collection of variously sized continents mostly located in the northern hemisphere of the earth. Officially founded on 3 September 2011, it is essentially a restart of the old region of Lisosia, with a focus on roleplaying in the International Incidents subforum. Minyang places a focus on realistic international politics relationships and mature interaction on the international scale, and adheres to a loose modern-tech technology policy. As it is obvious that most members of NationStates are not political science, economics, or military science majors, Minyang does not attempt to impose an impossible standard but instead seeks to improve those who seek to experience more serious roleplaying.

The two primary structural features of Minyang are its cartography and its communications methods. Where most regions have an overall political map that simply overlays states and member entities in regards to other states and contains very little information, Minyang aims to unify all states within to a single geographical and climatic structure and avoid disjointed roleplaying environments. Thus, the Minyang Cartography Group governs all map changes and details to best suit member states should the need arise. As for interpersonal communication, Minyang relies on the International Incidents subforum as its primary platform of roleplaying; out-of-character communication is done primarily on the IRC channel at #Minyang on irc.esper.net. While there is a forum for Minyang, the most preferred method of communication is still on the IRC channel.

To join Minyang, simply fill out the application below. Once complete, post in this thread, and visit us at our IRC channel. We will publicly discuss your application there and vote upon your entrance in a members-only subforum. If unable to use the IRC channel, please say so and specify a reason; we will try to help you use the IRC. Otherwise, telegrams and our regional forums will be used. Thank you for professing an interest in joining our region.

Provide a succinct description of your state as you would like to see it written in a regional factbook.
As the local indigenous tribes of Minyang started to notice the influences of the nations of Stoklomolvi and Kategora, they decided that they needed to form a government together in order to make sure that their voice was heard. The twelve tribes of the land of Yesopalitha decided to form a single government. This, however, has led to internal conflicts as the twelve tribal elders are having problems reaching an agreement on important decisions that impact the entire nation.

Why do you wish to join Minyang? What qualities of Minyang make it desirable to you?
Minyang was thrust upon me by Kategora, who just showed one of my RP's to Stoklomolvi and had me join... But the countries of Minyang seem eager to learn more about Yesopalitha.

How much prior RP experience have you had?
Not much RP experience, but I have had experience in the past of writing creatively.

How accepting are you in regards to regional control of your geography and climate?
I am all for order. If it is required to keep us together as a region, so be it.

[Short answer]
Provide a succinct description of your state as you would like to see it written in a regional factbook.
Bjarmia (Kingdom of Bjarmia) - Small population, the Bjarmian people belong to the Germanic ethnic family. The state religion is a unique blend of Gnosticism and local pagan mythology, called the Church of Bjarmia. The nation itself was founded a century ago and holds firm to its status as an island hermit kingdom.

Immigration to Bjarmia is decided on a case-by-case basis, and is nearly impossible unless one holds wealth or special skills. The people live in relative comfort in a Nordic-style welfare state.

Bjarmia's primary industries are auto manufacturing, book publishing, fishing, and IT services and products. That said, Bjarmia is not technologically backwards despite its isolationist policies.

The Kingdom has virtually no armed forces, simply a defensive Royal Navy and Royal Police Service. There is not a single intelligence agency as of yet.

Political power lays with the monarch. Though the previous king, Wladislav, gave some leniency to democratic activists and even went to far as to allow elections and create a parliament, the current monarch, King Corwin II followed a more absolute path, outlawing nearly all elections and disbanding several houses of parliament. Despite his apparent will to hold the majority of political power in his nation, King Corwin II has allowed for significant improves in his nation's civil rights arena.

Currently, street crime is relatively unknown in Bjarmia, though white-collar crime does occur and political corruption is prevalent. This corruption, coupled with anxiety of the modification of parliament, has caused small but volatile political movements to be founded, namely the Coalition for Wladislav's Bjarmia (pro-democracy organization) and the Moral Order Front (pro-fascist organization). CWB is not illegal under the nation's common laws, but the MOF has been outlawed and gone underground after a recent clash with police.


Why do you wish to join Minyang? What qualities of Minyang make it desirable to you?
Your group has some really interesting things. I love the maps and special forum, and the way you organize different aspects of gameplay is really quite to my liking. You all seem like serious, smart people and I'd love to be a part of this. I think my smaller nation could really contribute to your region - plus, I spy with my little eye a neat little island just east of Oseato where you could place me, if you so desired.

How much prior RP experience have you had?
I've been GM for dozens of Star Wars RPG campaigns, which isn't exactly like this but it was still a nightmare of an experience and taught me valuable RP lessons. Also, I organized a little region of my own for my friends and I about a year ago when I had my original nation, but it didn't work out. Two of my friends lost their passwords, two lost interest, and so it was just me and three other people. Also, though you make it explicitly clear that no poli sci/econ experience is required, I feel I should note that I'm a poli sci major soon to graduate and have a serious interest in politics, though I can keep it buttoned down.

How accepting are you in regards to regional control of your geography and climate?
I'm not entirely sure how to answer, because I don't know what this is asking. If you're asking if it's alright if you pick where my nation is, then yes! Sure, but like I said - we're an ISLAND nation. That's part of our background and I'm not willing to change that one detail.

Thank you for your time! I hope I get in!

[Short answer]
Provide a succinct description of your state as you would like to see it written in a regional factbook.
The Martilian Soviet Socialist Republic, also known as Soviet Martilia, is a federal constitutionally socialist state, a developed country located at the region of Adrastos.

Indigenous people of Malay origin inhabited Martilia as early as 3000 BC. Most being skilled hunters, gatherers and fishers. During the early 6th century, people settled along the southern coastlines of present-day Abyssinio, Fortka, and Nagarayat. As the people settled, they formed Gorodartsvos or city-states with their own government and laws. Each Gorodartsvos are different from the other. It was not until the 11th century when these states became an empire when they were unified by King Rostav I, the first king of Martilian Empire, and for almost eight centuries, the empire became a dominant and influential state in the region, but on March 2, 1884 a revolution broke out against King Katsynia in which a tri-state union country was created. Each state formed their own constitution and abolished slavery. The tri-state country did not last long and was able to be reunified during the Martilian Civil War under the communist flag.

During its restoration after the civil war in the early 20th century, the country underwent a rapid industrialization process which improved its economy to its present state. Massive military build-up, with anti-fascist and anti-capitalist propaganda triggered a cold war to its fascist and capitalist neighbors. The increasing tensions between them led the country to adopt an isolationist policy until it was fully lifted in late 2001.

Why do you wish to join Minyang? What qualities of Minyang make it desirable to you?
Besides from the fact that two of my former regions had closed down, I was also a former nation here in Minyang and I see the it as one of the expanding regions here in Nationstates. Also, I think most of it members are good roleplayers and I think it would be nice to see Minyang to developed and get some regional roleplays going.

How much prior RP experience have you had?
I have been an NS player since April of 2009 and even before that I have roleplaying experiences before in pre-NS days. I also played RPG games, such as SA:MP RP Servers (specifically @vG) where the level of roleplaying is very high. I also played in other roleplaying forums such as at 21c for I think almost two rounds. I once played there as Israel and then continuously as the Philippines.

How accepting are you in regards to regional control of your geography and climate?
Well, since this is a roleplaying forum-based game, I think I am acceptable with the regional control of my country's geography and climate.
