<-> <-> <-> <-> <->


What is Spiritus?

Image
----Spiritus is a republic, loosely themed on the primordial elements, that prides
---- itself on its democratic principles. We advocate these principles through our
-----foreign affairs as well as through the Spiritus Defense Force, our defender military
---- that works to safeguard the right of natives to democratic self-determination
---- throughout NationStates. We are a fun, laid back community focused on working
---- together rather than dramatic and disruptive politicking and infighting.
<-> <-> <-> <-> <->


Perks of Spiritus

Image
Anyone can easily get involved in the region! With a huge General Discussion ---------
Section, a Regional Assembly with tons of Citizen Input, Plenty of Government ---------
Opportunities, and an active Military, there is an almost overwhelming amount ---------
of things for new Citizens. Spiritus also has Citizen Newspapers, Spam Games, ---------
a fledging Roleplay Community, and a Regional League for playing "Diplomacy"! ---------


<-> <-> <-> <-> <->


How Can I Join?

Image
----It's easy! Just open up the Spiritus Region Page. From here, you just click the
---- "Move {yournation} to Spiritus" button, and you're already becoming a part of the
---- community! From there you can join the Forum, the Discord Server, or just post
---- around on the Regional Message Board! If you happen to have any questions, just
---- shoot the Founder a telegram and you'll quickly get a helpful response!

<-> <-> <-> <-> <->


Still Not Convinced?

Image
We'll throw in this puppy! As well as that, Spiritus Citizenship comes with a lifetime supply of Chocolate Chip---------
Cookies (gluten-free available on request),your own bottomless coffee pot (for endless energizing action), Narrations ---------
by Morgan Freeman (as if this couldn't get any better), and all the Rum you could ever wish for. Captain Jack Sparrow---------
once asked "Where's the Rum gone", upon losing his Rum. Spiritus assures you that the Rum has gone to here, and will ---------
not be running out any time soon. If that hasn't convinced you, yet, we also have Bacon. BACON! Need we say more?---------

<-> <-> <-> <-> <->

Join Spiritus Today!

We, at Spiritus, believe that everyone deserves to have lovely Chocolate-Chip Cookies. Thus, we create the most delicious gluten-free ones, for those members who are unable to eat regular cookies. If you're able to ingest the ebil gluten, then you may help yourself to the regular supply! (provided you become a citizen)

Our of curiousity, would Spiritus, being all about its democratic principles, defend a region that doesn't have them? (Such as one where the people certainly didn't 'elect' their WAD, or one that is affiliated with dictatorial, authortarian or otherwise undemocratic ideologies).
Never underestimate the power of cynicism, pessimism and negativity to prevent terrible things from happening. Only idealists try to build the future on a mountain of bodies.

The Thing to Remember About NationStates is that it is an almost entirely social game - fundamentally, you have no power beyond your own ability to convince people to go along with your ideas. In that sense, even the most dictatorial region is fundamentally democratic.

We very likely would. While we do pride ourselves on our democratic principles, we also believe that natives have a right to self-determination -- which is to say they have a right to reject democratic governance, and a right not to have democratic governance imposed upon them by external forces. I would add that few if any raiders would invade a region for the purpose of imposing democracy upon it, so the typical defense of such a region would not involve thwarting efforts to implement democratic self-government but simply thwarting efforts to take over and cause damage.

That said, we do have a policy against defending Nazi regions currently in force. There are limits to what we will defend, and as a political region rather than a professional gameplay organization our military will be subject to our regional interests and we reserve the right to decide which regions we will and will not defend based on our interests. But as a general principle, we don't believe that democracy should be imposed from outside and we believe that a non-democratic government chosen by natives is preferable to any alternative that would be offered by the typical invader force.

People don't 'choose' nondemocratic government. :P

You're defenders. Don't cloak your choice to be defender in faux-democratic language.

It's so...green...
Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.
