    Request: Sanctum Imperium Catholicum

    @Variota From a cultural point of view, is this far enough away?

    Loads of good ideas keep popping up here. Who else would like to chime in?

    Request: Dniester

    Hello @North Dniester . Are you planning to continue with the news updates? Map placement. Cold East Slavic nations lead me to central Argis. Reviewing your factbook I find little information about geography. Would you be interested in a landlocked location somewhere in this area?

    Request: Zargal

    Hello @Thunder_Thighs65 . You have to be a member of this region to be eligible for map placement. Right now I see that you are in The North Pacific. https://www.nationstates.net/nation=zargal

    Request: Tallovia

    @Tallovia Looks good. Keep up the news posts. Yes, these islands in Thalassa are still available. I do remember @Sunset Sea Islands sharing his future expansion plans in this area. I think it's prudent to ask his opinion regarding this map request. For reference, I'm also adding a screenshot of the area.

    Request: Sanctum Imperium Catholicum

    Hello @Sancti Imperii Catholico. Your newsroom and IIWik factbook look alright. Keep it up. Regarding your map placement. Romance culture would fit in within West-Argis and Northeast-Alharu. There are plenty of similar nations already here: Iverica, Lusotropia, Soreana, Limonaia, Valacia, Beleareas. Temperate climate doesn't match the location you highlighted. This has more of a Mediterranean vibe. Starting off around the 1200s CE would fit into the history of colonisation mentioned by @Iverica What do you think of being in this area?

    Expansion: Rihan Republic

    @Rihan For expansions, we always advise involving your nearest neighbours in the discussion. I am tagging @Asgeirria @Kipan @Shffahkia to learn more about their opinion. (I've also tagged this topic as "awaiting rp". A lot of other expansion requests are also tagged this way. This makes it easier to circle back later.)

    Additional Cities Request

    Thanks @Kipan . By reading your factbook I can already learn a bit more about your islands. http://iiwiki.com/wiki/Kipan#Geography_and_Climate I only need to know which of these islands is which. You referenced several: Moyako, Aso, "main island", center island, left island.

    Request: Alenveil

    @Alenveil A neolithic history will be interesting to see develop. Any many players go back that far. On the timeline, you can see how shipping has only been around since 4500 BCE. Which is still possible though if we take ocean currents into account. The Cristinese language in this particular region will be unique. I see no issue with your location next to @PyeMcGowan and @Theodoria . I am tagging them for good measure, to inform them about blocked future expansions.

    Expansion: PyeMcGowan

    @PyeMcGowan Those are some mysterious phases right there.

    Request: Llalta

    Hello @Llalta . I can think of one small lonely island in the middle of the North Adlantic Ocean. Is this what you had in mind? Remember that this would seriously hinder any future expansion plans you might have. Unless of course, we draw another small island nearby. http://www.europans.com/map/

    Hello from Bulgenstaz!

    Good afternoon @Bulgenstaz. Welcome to our community. The setup you mention is quite original: " a seafaring people based off a sort of communist Polynesia-Southeast Asia bearing a sort of eastern european linguistic style." That'll make for an interesting addition.

    Home | Orioni | World | Business | Tech | Science | Culture | Health | Sports Hakushaku awards STEM grants to move to Orioni O'POLIS -- Trade councillor Elisabeth of Hakushaku has awarded Φ18.000.000 for foreign STEM workers to relocate to Orioni, in an effort to boost domestic research and development. So far 54 foreign scientists have hit the jackpot as Cllr. Hakushaku awarded them grants to relocate to Orioni for the rest of this political term. More than 8.000 people from about 50 countries expressed interest in the grants. Most of the applicants were Europa-based researchers. The “Ascend Orient” grants are part of Cllr. Hakushaku’s efforts to counter the challenges of climate change. Orioni's appeal “gave me such a psychological boost, to have that kind of support, to have the government saying I value what you do”, said winner Camille Parmesan, of the University of Darhan in @Ide Jima. She will be working at an experimental ecology station in the Altais Mountains on how human-made climate change is affecting wildlife. In an interview with the Associated Press, Parmesan described funding challenges for scientific projects in her home nation and a feeling that “you are having to hide what you do”. “We will be there to support your research," Hakushaku told the 54 winners in O'polis on Thursday. “If we want to prepare for the challenges of tomorrow, we need science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” she said, promising to also put in place a global climate change monitoring system among other climate innovations. The research of the winning recipients focuses on transportation, polymers and pollution. A new round of the competition will be launched next month in December. About 50 projects will be chosen overall, and funded with Φ6.000.000 from university research institutes. Initially aimed at Europan researchers, the research grants were expanded to all Eurth nations, according to organizers. Some Orionii researchers have complained that Hakushaku is showering money on foreign STEM specialists at a time when they have been pleading for more support for domestic higher education.
