ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
The OP wishes to thank Anagonia, Darlingtown, Marquesan and New Azura for all their work in helping to establish this region and construct the framework for what the region of Esvanovia will become. Special thanks is also extended to the nation of Neu Engollion for their continued assistance and support in this endeavor.

Welcome to Esvanovia, a brand-new roleplaying region founded on the principles of camaraderie, fellowship and a passion for telling stories and worldbuilding. Our region boasts an eclectic mixture of players both young and old plying their trade in the world’s preeminent nation-building simulation, all sharing a love of creating beautiful and magnificent fictional worlds full of drama and intrigue. Beyond the mechanics of the roleplaying community however, we are a community of friends that want to help each other grow not only as writers, but as people as well. We want to embrace the idea that roleplaying regions need not devolve into havens for gatekeepers and cliques deigned to keep newer players down and out. On the contrary, we believe that a region should be a place where everyone should feel welcome, whether they are day one members or someone that just came in from the cold. Here you will find a warm and welcoming environment to create your nation as you see fit, without the restraints of region hawks hovering over your shoulder trying to get you to comply to some normative standard. Esvanovia was lovingly crafted to break that mold and to give you ample freedom to pursue all of your nation and worldbuilding.

Whether you are a ten-year veteran of NationStates roleplaying or someone that is brand new to the site and looking for your very first roleplaying region, we would love for you to consider Esvanovia your new home away from home. We will be constantly bringing new features online in the coming months, included dedicated threads for news articles, short stories, and more. Our Discord server is always a welcoming environment for people to come and visit with us to get a feel for the region and see if they think the fit is right. For those willing to take the leap of faith and join us, an application has been conveniently placed here in the thread below for you to fill out. Once completed, the region members will review all applicants and be in contact with you via telegram and on our Discord server’s guest chat thread to get to know you better. Once in, we will get you set up with a space to call your own on our spacious regional map, and then you are free to do your thing and begin creating your own niche in our region space. On behalf of all of us that have worked so diligently to make this regional home a reality, we want to take a moment to thank you for your interest in Esvanovia, and we hope to see you apply for a spot in our region soon!



Image
  • Everyone is an equal in the eyes of the region here in Esvanovia, from day one members to brand new inductees.
    There will be no gatekeeping, bullying or exerting of pressure on region members in Esvanovia, period. Those who break this rule repeatedly will be subject to punishment ranging from temporary up to permanent banishment from our region. This rule will serve as your first and only warning!

  • Extend courtesy to your fellow region members by trying to remain active in the region when and where possible.
    We recognize that real life can sometimes intervene and rob us of the time and opportunity to roleplay here at NationStates. However, please try to respect your fellow region members by remaining as active as possible with us. Please do not dump a puppet here and forget about the account.

  • Respect the boundaries of storytelling requirements pertinent to NationStates community roleplaying guidelines.
    This one is self-obvious, but it bears repeating unfortunately: there are community standards that are placed upon writers if they want to participate here at NationStates, and in Esvanovia we take those standards seriously. Please try to observe a strict PG-13 rating for all written content.



Image
Players looking to participate with Esvanovia are encouraged to fill out the application form provided below and submit it here in the thread. We also strongly encourage players to join our regional discord server to get to know the current region roster and facilitate a deeper understanding of both their nation and who they are as a player here at NationStates. Once submitted, your application will be processed in the order it was received, and you should have a decision rendered within 2-4 weekdays of submitting it, barring any server downtime or holiday vacations. At present, we are accepting primary nations and secondary nations only – only nations with a NationStates account can join our region (we are not excepting colonial territory claims from nations existing outside of our region at present). Writing standards are not the sole metric by which an application will be judged; however, we do encourage a writing sample to be included in your application for posterity purposes. If you have any questions regarding the application process, a question regarding our Discord server, or any other comments or concerns about the procedure for admission, please contact the OP at The Esvanovian Caretaker or reach out to Anagonia or New Azura.

Sounds interesting. Just checking, can I sign up and send an ambassador nation, I kinda don’t want to lose the TNP community, or my endorsements. I should mention I’m PMT and an essential in universe trade monopoly which explains the catastrophically high GDP.

Your local up and coming technological menace.

According to viewtopic.php?f=23&t=363018 somewhere around 5-7, because civilian tech is hyper-advanced, military, not so much. About 4.8 if we include project Hercules, which created superhumans.

Population: 35 billion (cuz moon colony cool)

APPLICATION

Nation's Full IC Name: Ashilese Federation (Ashilosa)
Nation's IC Population: To be determined.
Nation's Head of Government: To be determined
Nation's Head of State: To be determined.
Nation's Government Type: Communalist council republic
Nation's Gross Domestic Product (GDP): To be determined.
Nation's Military Population: To be determined.

Which of the following best describes your nation in Esvanovia?
[ ] This nation is my primary account.
[X] This nation is a secondary account.
[ ] This nation is a colony from another region.

Please briefly describe your nation (its culture, its people, its government, etc.):

Ashilosa is a federation consisting mostly of !Muskogean/Mississippian peoples who call themselves Ashioga, anglicized as Ashilese. Originally a series of city-states connected by religion and a system of patronage, it emerged as a unified entity in the late 1500s following a series of wars and religious awakenings caused by the sighting of a celestial phenomenon.

The government is a traditional bottom-up federation resembling a council republic, in which representatives, instantly recallable and serving under a delegative mandate, are selected largely by consensus at a local level and build up to a federal level of representation. Its economy is largely communalist in nature, featuring community-ownership of nearly all industry and services and decentralized planned economy that has decommodified basic needs. While industries such as food processing, tourism, and high-tech manufacturing are present, the vast majority of the economy is oriented around quaternary services such as education, research and development, and consulting. Indeed, institutions and firms relating to education, research, and culture represent the lion's share of employment and revnue in the country, leading to the modern moniker of "university-state".

The country has mostly demilitarized, with the military has being subsumed into the Public Support Corps, or Kishutotlwi, a nationwide umbrella organization with duties relating to public welfare, safety, and crisis response.

Nation's Full IC Name:The Kingdom of Sombreland
Nation's IC Population:101 million
Nation's Head of Government:The Princess-Regent, Alavaine de Cressa
Nation's Head of State:King Orian IX
Nation's Government Type:Monarchy
Nation's Gross Domestic Product (GDP):376 billion

Which of the following best describes your nation in Esvanovia?
[ x] This nation is my primary account.
[ ] This nation is a secondary account.
[ ] This nation is a colony from another region.

Please briefly describe your nation (its culture, its people, its government, etc.):
The Kingdom of Sombreland is a culture where caste is believed to be divinely ordained. It denotes the idea that all persons have their place according to their birth from the divine ancestors of Sombreland.

Generally, caste cannot advance to another caste. Furthermore, caste can rarely move across to another caste in broad category. For instance, a member of the Courtly Caste cannot move to the Military Caste and vice versa. There are rare circumstances, however, when caste can be promoted or demoted. There are infamous cases of people losing caste as punishment, or gaining caste as an extraordinary reward. These incidents are rare but not unheard of, and are used as cautionary tales or as encouragement.

The general lack of opportunity and freedom of movement is not universally popular. There are protest elements within Sombreland. The Cult of Thon is one element, proposing general equality within the cult and proposal that all caste and class should be abolished before the god Thon. A more subtle version of this is supported by liberal aristocracy from within the Upper Castes and some among the Artisan caste.

Since the National Financial Crisis the economy of Sombreland has been a cautious one, emphasizing macroeconomic stability rather than growth. While the country shifted toward a more market-oriented economy, the Sombreland government still continues to hold a tight rein over major state sectors, such as the banking system, state-owned enterprises and foreign trade. GDP growth fell to 6% in 1998 and 5% in 1999. The economy saw continuous real GDP growth of at least 5% since 2000 under reforms sponsored by King Orian the 9th.
The Ten Year Plan proposed in 1996 resulted in the growth of the Private Sector. However, reaffirmation of Royal guidance of trade kept the economy as a state economy. Both Liberal Reformers and Thonite Puritans have deplored what they see as failures of the Ten Year Plan. Official corruption is endemic, and Sombreland lags in property rights, efficient regulation of markets, and labor and financial market reforms.

In spite of these criticisms, Sombreland's economy had an average GDP growth of 7.1% a year from 2000 to 2004. The GDP growth was 8.4% in 2005. The government estimated that GDP grew in 2006 by 8.17%. According to the Ministry of the Right, Grand Duke Egram Zalad, the government targeted a GDP growth of around 8.5% in 2007. This has leveled to an average of 7.2% per year in 2020, expected by economists to continue until at least 2044.

The current economic plan, called the Royal Growth Plan, launched by the government of the Princess-Regent, is not truly focused on economic growth, but rather on a plan of adaptation involving greater foreign trade. focusing not on general markets but on development of new trade partnerships.

Sombreland's head of state, Orian the 9th, has reigned over Sombreland for 45 years. He is currently very ill and being tended by the country's best physicians. In the interim, the kingdom is ruled by his heir, Princess Alavaine de Cressa.

The young princess has been thrust into this position at the early age of 20. Her father, Prince Halibane, died in a hunting accident. While the Prince did have siblings, the direct line of succession made Alavaine the next heir.

Which of the following best describes your nation in Esvanovia?
[ x] This nation is my primary account.
[ ] This nation is a secondary account.
[ ] This nation is a colony from another region.

Please briefly describe your nation (its culture, its people, its government, etc.):
The Kingdom of Sombreland is a culture where caste is believed to be divinely ordained. It denotes the idea that all persons have their place according to their birth from the divine ancestors of Sombreland.

Generally, caste cannot advance to another caste. Furthermore, caste can rarely move across to another caste in broad category. For instance, a member of the Courtly Caste cannot move to the Military Caste and vice versa. There are rare circumstances, however, when caste can be promoted or demoted. There are infamous cases of people losing caste as punishment, or gaining caste as an extraordinary reward. These incidents are rare but not unheard of, and are used as cautionary tales or as encouragement.

The general lack of opportunity and freedom of movement is not universally popular. There are protest elements within Sombreland. The Cult of Thon is one element, proposing general equality within the cult and proposal that all caste and class should be abolished before the god Thon. A more subtle version of this is supported by liberal aristocracy from within the Upper Castes and some among the Artisan caste.

Since the National Financial Crisis the economy of Sombreland has been a cautious one, emphasizing macroeconomic stability rather than growth. While the country shifted toward a more market-oriented economy, the Sombreland government still continues to hold a tight rein over major state sectors, such as the banking system, state-owned enterprises and foreign trade. GDP growth fell to 6% in 1998 and 5% in 1999. The economy saw continuous real GDP growth of at least 5% since 2000 under reforms sponsored by King Orian the 9th.
The Ten Year Plan proposed in 1996 resulted in the growth of the Private Sector. However, reaffirmation of Royal guidance of trade kept the economy as a state economy. Both Liberal Reformers and Thonite Puritans have deplored what they see as failures of the Ten Year Plan. Official corruption is endemic, and Sombreland lags in property rights, efficient regulation of markets, and labor and financial market reforms.

In spite of these criticisms, Sombreland's economy had an average GDP growth of 7.1% a year from 2000 to 2004. The GDP growth was 8.4% in 2005. The government estimated that GDP grew in 2006 by 8.17%. According to the Ministry of the Right, Grand Duke Egram Zalad, the government targeted a GDP growth of around 8.5% in 2007. This has leveled to an average of 7.2% per year in 2020, expected by economists to continue until at least 2044.

The current economic plan, called the Royal Growth Plan, launched by the government of the Princess-Regent, is not truly focused on economic growth, but rather on a plan of adaptation involving greater foreign trade. focusing not on general markets but on development of new trade partnerships.

Sombreland's head of state, Orian the 9th, has reigned over Sombreland for 45 years. He is currently very ill and being tended by the country's best physicians. In the interim, the kingdom is ruled by his heir, Princess Alavaine de Cressa.

The young princess has been thrust into this position at the early age of 20. Her father, Prince Halibane, died in a hunting accident. While the Prince did have siblings, the direct line of succession made Alavaine the next heir.

I'm not positive but I do believe you never went on the discord server to get to know the region. If you did, and if we already accepted you, please disregard. However unless I'm mistaken, you canceled your application with us.

Kameiraja is best described as a global anomaly. Spanning dozens of recognized ethnic, religious, lingual, political, and social groups, it is generally considered to be one of the most diverse nations on Earth, it's large expanse taking hold over it's numerous peoples. Nevertheless, it's nearly impossible to understand how it exists: trying to look at Kameiraja as a full picture is looking into the mouth of a beast and trying to understand why it's teeth are rotten. Once you're inside..you are most certainly not escaping it's bare-bones insanity, no-matter how hard you try.

First, it's people. With influences from Greco-Indian culture, Kameiraja functions with a vast synthesis of cultural groupings. There is no single ethnic or social identity that dominates; instead, dozens of competing ethnic groups often battle it out within. With modernization, Kameiraja's cities bloom with a multicultural population, and a burgeoning middle class that is able to compete on a global market, a new major economic powerhouse in the making. However, taking a step into the countryside reveals still a deeply divided country. With a semi-feudal peasantry still intact within parts of the deep countryside, religious zealotry abound.

Next, it's culture. As mentioned before, Kameiraja mainly is influenced by Greco-Indian culture, particularly with the birth of Greco-Bhuddism, the one 'dominant' religion in the country. WIth that said, as mentioned before, vastly different cultural groupings survive within it's borders. Groups with distant links to Yiddishism, tribal and indigenous groups, and, at it's most extreme end, a well off caste of people supposedly descended from the empire that once ruled, all can find it's home here. It's an incongruous mix, particularly when ethnic or religious tensions boil over into nasty, gruesome bloodshed.

Finally, it's government. A clusterfuck if anything. As a parliamentary democracy, it's system meant to provide stability does the opposite. With a 8% electoral threshold, some of the highest in the world, the fractured left wing is often left to crumbs electorally, relying on liberal party entryism to hopefully push for a stronger agenda. On the right, the dominant KRP (Kameirajan Reconstruction Party) rules comfortably, relying on a political and economic developmentalist approach, with social progress tolerated, much to the frustration of more radical left activist and conservatives alike who wish to push the politics in there direction. It's no wonder that powerful political movements; most notably a increasingly powerful communist movement and indigenous rights movement; threatens to uproot the core of the country and provide sweeping revolutionary change.

Colossal modern island nation in the North Atlantic. Ruled by a compassionate yet slightly-unhinged king, with a very isolationist yet empathetic populace. Notable characteristics: terrifyingly mighty air force and navy, world famous cars, legendary blend of wildlife.
