      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. Country calling codes

    Right now, the claiming of international calling codes seems to be rather random and wild. For this reason, we have contacted the Global Telecommunication Department (GTD), the bureau responsible for issues that concern information and communication technologies. The GTD has agreed to coordinate the shared global use of our telecommunication infrastructure and worldwide technical standards. We have tasked them with establishing the prefixes to enable international country calling codes. Country calling codes are prefix codes. While there is a general geographic grouping to the zones, some exceptions exist for political and historical reasons. Thus, the geographical indicators below are approximations only. Zone 1: western Europa Zone 2: eastern Europa Zone 3: Marenesia Zone 4: Thalassa Zone 5: Argis Zone 6: Alharu Zone 7: Aurelia Zone 8: Antargis Zone 9: reserved for future global service OOC: I'll be working off of a basic design like this, starting in the north and making may way around each continent in clockwise order.
  2. Romefeller Foundation

    The Romefeller Foundation Kindly invites all ruling monarchs to its annual conference. @Adaptus @Tagmatium Rules @Cristina @The Eurofuhrer March 2018 in Corona Borealis, Orioni RSVP recommended
  3. Request: Ahrana

    @Ahrana That's certainly possible. Looking at the geography, your southern tip is closest to the Mediargic Sea. In a future expansion, it could be extended to reach that bay. Your closest neighbour on that southern side is @Girkmand : would you have any objections to this request?
  4. Using our world map in Google Earth Pro

    Part Deux: measuring up So you've figured out how to set a custom image overlay. But now you wonder: how big is my nation? Because, when you think about it, isn't everything about size? (Answr: no, it isn't.) Nonetheless, should you wish to start measuring your stuff, you can. 1. One button to rule them all Click the ruler icon at the top. This will open a nice dialog box. This includes several options: Line Path polygon Circle 3D path 3D polygon You'll want to select "polygon". 2. Draw around the edges Now this becomes tricky. Like any 3-year-old knows, colouring inside the lines is already hard enough. But now you'll actually have to draw on the lines. On the lines of your borders and/or coastline. The more detailed you draw, the more accurate your result will be. Once you're done with that, you'll get two nice numbers: the perimeter of your nation (how long is the border), and the area of your nation (how much dirt is there). Sidenote: if your nation contains a lake or other body of water, you should probably go and subtract that. Now isn't that neat.
  5. Who Will Post Next?

    Close but no cigar. Iverica now?
  6. Good morning there. I noticed your nation ceased to exist.


  7. Naming the Seas

    I has come to my attention that the ocean borders aren't 100% clear. There are some questions regarding: Where does the "?" area belong? @Prymont suggested Adisi. How far south dor the Adlantic extend? Where is the western edges of the Adisi Ocean?
  8. Who Will Post Next?

    100% wrong. Cristina?
  9. Lockdown NW Europa

    Yes, I've split off several topics from the main discussion. It was becoming too complicated to stay focussed on 3-4 different topics.
  10. Timezones

    The +1 timezone is shared by @Astriedan and @Gallambria. Do you have a shared proposal for naming your timezone? If there is none, I will got with Western Adlantic Time (WAT), like the RL Pacific Time. The -7 timezone is shared by @Asgeirria and @Cashar. Do you have a shared proposal for naming your timezone?
  11. Map v4: Applications & Releases

    Map update: https://i.imgur.com/8mHJ87k.png Added: Nobody. There were no new applications. Edited: @Gallambria : More cities. NW Europa: cleaning up the empty borderlands. @Andalla : Suggested his western waters be named the Andallan Sea
  12. Since future neighbours get a say in accepting an expansion like this (or not), the voices of @Variota and @Girkmand count in this debate. Myself, I think this area is rather far from the Adapton homeland. If you had colonised that bit, it would have happened 100 years ago at least. So that would call for a historic RP. On the other side, @Adaptus , I think you already mentioned being content with expanding locally with the debate on locking down the open areas in Europa.
  13. Naming the Seas

    Right now we have names for Oceans and some local seas. http://www.europans.com/map/ But there is certainly still room for more detail. If you're a coastal or maritime nation, share your naming ideas for a: Sea - a sea or marginal sea is a division of an ocean, partially enclosed by islands, archipelagos, or peninsulas, adjacent to or widely open to the open ocean at the surface, and/or bounded by submarine ridges on the seafloor. Strait - a narrow area of water connecting two wider areas of water. Bay - generic term; though most features with "Bay" in the name are small, some are very large. Gulf - a very large bay, often a top-level division of an ocean or sea. Fjord - a long bay with steep sides, typically formed by a glacier. Bight - a bay that is typically shallower than a sound. Sound - a large, wide bay which is typically deeper than a bight, or a strait. I'm excluding coves because they would be too small to place. Low on inspiration? Check this list on Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_seas
  14. Continent names

    In September 2017 we settled the continent names. These have largely been accepted, even leading to the creation of new intercontinental organisations such as ATARA. I think the time has come now to begin talking about subcontinents again. I advise that resident nations get to propose names for their own local area. I'm specifically looking at Europa, Argis and Alharu.
  15. [HELP] Currency?

    Auro? Au = gold Or perhaps that would be more of a regional currency for those in Aurelia. I like where this brainstorm is heading.
