To start out we transformed three vintage posters into customer ads that are intricately related to each individual nation.

 

Each ad is displayed vertically. The images are resized to 200x300px, but are originally available in larger sizes (600x900px).

 

Here are some first examples of three nations: Magnaeus, Paeca, and Fleur de Lys. More will be created later, based on your requests or our own inspiration.

This is a service announcement of the Sunset Ad Agency.

 

The logistics branch of the SAA has researched which nations qualify to have their ad displayed on the forums.

To decide which nations qualify and which do not, the SAA used the following criteria.

 

The nation is...

 

a ) active (last activity during last 14 days)

b ) not a puppet

c ) a forums member

d ) active on the forums (saying hello, factbooks, news agencies, etc.)

 

RULE D WAS INTRODUCED ON JULY 21st 2017. THIS RULE DOES NOT APPLY FOR ADS OF NATIONS DONE BEFORE SAID DATE.

 

The current Europan nations which fulfill these criteria are the following:

  • Afropa checkmark.png
  • Cashar checkmark.png
  • Cavunia checkmark.png
  • Derthalen checkmark.png
  • Fleur de Lys checkmark.png

Nations which fulfill criteria a ) and b ) (active non-puppets) but have yet to join our forums can qualify for an ad by joining the forums.

Please keep in mind that the criteria could change in the future.

I would absolutely love if I could have an ad. My apologies if I'm not doing this in the proper fashion but I did not see any in particular protocol. But I think what you guys are doing for this region is Great and I'm very happy to be apart of what is being built here.

Thanks for the kind words! 2-thumbup.gif

I would think that some kind of ultra-christian ad would be fitting, wouldn't it? Some kind of church or big cross with light coming from behind of it.

@Orioni Would this be okay or should the forum stay clear of religious symbols? I was planning on designing something islam-like for Sa Hara as well.

Well aslong as it is fitting to Great Burlington culture, which the state church is an Orthodox Church so maybe an Icon, or an Orthodox Cross?

I like this. The sand. The Moon. The star. You have taken the basic characteristics of my nation and turned them into one image. How much do I owe you for this?

This is a service announcement of the Sunset Ad Agency.

 

A big thank you to the United States of Prymont who pointed out some spelling mistakes which found their way into our advertisements.

There were two "the"s in Cristina and Qardania became "divive" instead of divine.

We have fixed these mistakes and are asking our IT department in Orioni to replace the faulty files.

The Sunset Ad Agency humbly begs for forgiveness for delivering flawed products.

Because you posted this bugfix request during the weekend, we had to call our IT guy into the office during a weekend. This is going to cost extra. We replaced the faulty ads and also published the new ones. That will be ?2.000 for each poster. The money has already been taken out of your account. Please doing business with you!

To compensate for the trouble we invite the IT guy and his family to the Sunset See Islands. He will be able to relax in one of our VIP hotels and enjoy the sun on the beach. Of course, the Sunset Ad Agency will cover all costs!

We have nearly completed the ads for the currently qualifying nations. Orioni is currently working on the last remaining nation, Vetok. Meanwhile, these are the the ads for Youtabonia, the Eurof?hrer and Great Kings.

    • Midterm Elections Predictions Look Like Conservatives Strengthen as Elections Approach The Youtabonian Policy and Election Center, a non-governmental organization, has released its final full election preview and predictions before the November midterm elections. In a national poll found that had gained nearly 15% of voters who said they would vote for the National Conservatives since the 2016 Presidential Elections, this correlates with a drop in voter enthusiasm for the newly renamed Social Democrats, formerly the SDA. Most of the perspective voters cited improving economic conditions, the new military alliance, and renewed faith in the national government, which is still around 50% it's highest in a decade. The National Conservatives have lauded the polls as proof of that the people support their government, while the Democrats claim the polls were rigged to support the NC. When the Coordinator of the YPEC was asked on his opinion on the reactions of both parties, he replied to reporters "This is politics as usual, both sides like it when it supports them, and the other side gets mad. We're just reporting the results of our polls, not trying to influence election to either side."    President Sawyer Publicly Appeals to  @Tagmatium Rules to Expand Relations with Youtabonia. During a meeting with the press, President Sawyer spoke on a variety of issues, ending with Tagmatium, with Tagmatium expanding its diplomatic relationships to several nations including Youtabonian ally, @Great Burlington, the President spoke to the an appeal to the Tagmatium government and explained the reasons for the appeal to the people of Youtabonia. He cited the shared Christian faith that most Youtabonians and the people of Tagmatium have, the mutual ally/friend in Great Burlington, and the need for free trade and cooperation between nations of a right-leaning alignments against the opposing nations, as well as mutual growth as reasons for the the need for better relations between Tagmatium and Youtabonia. He finished his speech by saying that "Many Youtabonians, including myself, trust that the Tagmatium government will agree and make the mutually beneficial decision." The State Office when asked for comment, they echoed the President but refused to further iterate.
    • Public Announcement:
      To All Intending to Compete The Holy Empire of Derthalen shall be entering into this competition. The fylkirliche Fulgenland Handelsgesellschaft (fFH) has been given special dispensation and a charter by the Imperial Senate, to operate within the Aurelian nation of @Rihan. Designs and technical specialists are to be handled by the Derthaler Engineering Corporation (DEC) in partnership with the fFH. These companies shall provide only the most sturdy and reliable of products, creating iron-horses with an aim towards long lasting components and easily sourced spare parts. While the initial work is expected to be done by Derthaler specialists and workers experienced in the fields or railway construction and surveying, the fFH promises to establish local training centres so as to help improve the economy of Rihan by outputting skilled labourers and technicians capable of handling further construction, maintenance, and running of what we create.  We expect great things from those not deterred by this. From: His Imperial Majesty's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jan Utikar
      To: Praetor Mathon Terix Golden people, On top of that initial pronouncement, we have it in mind to also offer a trade deal for weaponry and other military equipment on top of our building your infrastructure for you. Please keep this in mind while reading what is to come. The case for this railway is quite simple; the easier it is to get goods to market, the more money can be made by producers. With the spread of better infrastructure, you will also be able to cheaply ship finished consumer goods to areas that would have previously been harder to access and also be able to begin developing them more economically. While this might lead to villages and towns away from the rail lines becoming more depopulated as people move closer to them for easier access, it will be overall beneficial to your economy in our estimation, as you will now have more centralised pools of labour in towns that will be requiring more and more housing to accommodate new arrivals. This should provide plenty of economic incentive for this railway to be built. As for collaboration, we will do what we can. We will need to firstly train and work with your personnel first before we can start trusting them, as we will need to first learn how competent they are at their jobs. Of course, we will be training them to our standards, as we have promised, but this may take time. We will ask that you be patient as we do this. As such, we have no issue with collaborating on route feasibility and also using your surveyors once we have been able to learn of how reliable they are. Of course, while my personnel keep eyes and take notes on yours, yours shall likely be doing the same to mine. As such, I would suggest that we keep one of your government officials on hand so as to have someone to arbitrate early disputes. For recommended rolling stock for these possible lines, we of course suggest ones using our own gauge, but locally manufactured if possible. The gauge is widespread on our continent allowing for easier importation of train cars and such from Argis if we find that setting up local manufacturers is not possible and it also offers more stability than the narrower gauges used by nations such as Fulgenland, as the weight of the cars will be spread out over a wider area. All other matters will likely have to wait until we have begun surveying and consulting with local counterparts, as to make any predictions and quotations now would be premature. We await your reply. Thought for the day; There is no better millstone for success than that of adversity.
