      Hello new member   02/03/2018

      Welcome to Europa. This site is part of the region of Europa in the online game NationStates. The region of Europa is a diverse community of nations, with a wide range of political and ideological values, working together through various institutions and alliances - at least when they're not threatening to go to war with each other. Whether you want to play it safe with a liberal democracy, set up a communist regime, or rule your citizens with an iron fist and the threat of turning them into dog food, Europa is a great region to play in. As one of the oldest regions in the game, everybody who's anybody wants to try their hand at ruling their own country right here in Europa. Just head on over to the Forum and have a read through the sticky threads. If you're curious about how all of this work, we've included some helpful links to get you started. A good place to start is our Hitchhickers Guide to Europa. Roleplayers will be glad to see our honest and fair RP rules. Check out our map versions and discover how to apply. Experiencing problem with this website? Our helpdesk is always open. Have fun! -- The Europans Team

  1. FROM: Nataline Percosset, Minister of External Affairs, Syndicate of Synturia TO: Lance Valentino, CEO of ValenCorp, Republic of @Asgeirria Dear Sir, I am pleased to inform you that our engineers have reported to me announcing that they will be ready to present and discuss possible solutions for your company's needs in a matter of two to three weeks. I will notify you of any new updates on their progress! Best regards, Nataline Percosset, Minister of External Affairs

    How Making Underground Autoways Would be Boring Though the renovation of Synturia's public and commercial rail lines had been completed in order to streamline and make mass transportation more efficient, the complete transition from the use of automobiles and road systems to rail transportation will probably yet occur for a couple, even several, years. A large portion of the Synturian population still prefer to drive their own personal automobiles. Synturians still take pride in cruising in their @Prymontian KAPs, their @Variotan minicars, and their hardy @Greater Serbian CVs. With great cars bring great soul-crushing traffic congestion. Chief Executive Minister Noel Smuk, an avid driver of his personalized Edison Hotrod, announced the start of a project involving a large network of tunnels amidst several level beneath the ground, namely beneath the Synture Megalopolis Belt, in order to alleviate rage-inducing traffic congestions in Synturia's currently singularly leveled urban streets. The tunnels would bar no practical limit to how many layers of tunnels can be built, so any level of traffic can be addressed, be resistant to weathering, prevent dividing communities, and perhaps most importantly of all: construction would be silent and invisible to the surface and would not make the congestion even worse to to surface construction. Surface cars would then only simply have to ride up into a state of the art trolley that will whisk the passengers and their beloved cars away to their destination in little time. Synturian contractors are already well equipped with tunneling and boring machines from the underground rail renovation. However, with a strong belief in continuous improvement, newer and more efficient tunnel boring machines are in development for this project. Though the equipment for undertaking this project is well sufficient, the plans and designs for the trolley system are currently under development.

    Meat the Future of Cultured Culinary After the world's first lab-grown burger was cooked and eaten at Synstitute's cafeteria, the development of the meat and streamlining its production methods have been taken on in many labs and production plants across Synturia. Costs of making clean meat were indeed high, and some technological bugs in the step-by-step processes of cellular agriculture are being worked out such as finding animal-free growth serum appropriate for each type of meat. Cultured meat, also known as "clean meat", "lab grown meat", "in vitro meat", "test tube meat" is developed by first harvesting stem cells from animal muscle tissue, initially beef, in a definitely harmless way. The muscle cells are segregated from the connected fat cells, which are processed to be cultured. The culturing of cells involve immersing the animal or plant tissue in nutrient-rich substrate which are all contained in a suitable artificial environment. The stem cells exponentially grow into strains of tubes and into strands of muscle tissue. Conventional livestock production, especially cattle, involves large amounts of resources, consuming wide spans of suitable land and high volumes of water and plant feed. Conventional agricultural practices, such as livestock farming, was once prevalent in the land where Synturia rests today and contributed in rendering most of the land not suitable for agriculture. Making the mass production of cultured meat more viable, and even more affordable than normal meat may revolutionize the way Synturians eat in the future. Until then, Synturians will have to stick to either affordable imported canned meat or more expensive imported fresh and frozen meat.

  5. Timezones

    As for abbreviating UTC -2, I propose a compromise: PST, Prymontian-Synturian Time. It could be abbreviated further to PrySynt Time and could be pronounced “present time”. Since all of Synturia, including its capital is in UTC -2 and the capital of Prymont is as well, I consider this a reasonable compromise. @Orioni

    Some ideas:
  7. Timezones

    I suppose UTC -2 could be Western Adisi Time and UTC -1 be Eastern Adisi Time
  8. Timezones

    I see that UTC -3 is not exactly in the center of Argis but your Argic neighbors fall mostly there. Wouldn’t it suit @Prymont @Girkmand @Ahrana and Hellenistic Rus to be on the same time zone? Sure it’s not exactly geographically Central Argis but it’s really close and I’d consider that area politically Central Argis. @Orioni
  9. Timezones

    Since more nations (also more active nations) in Argis and half of @Prymont falls in UTC -3 wouldn’t it make more sense to have CAT there?
