I'm proposing a new rule, which is basically to disallow the use of puppets to suppliment the abilities of a player's main nation. This isn't aimed at anyone who is currently role-playing within this region, rather it is in retrospect of The Chosen Nations' actions a long time ago, when he used a puppet called Byzacium to give his main nation nuclear arms when he hadn't actually RP'ed the developement of them for his main nation. It was just a excuse for TCN to get nuclear arms quickly.

 

So, this is the rule:

A player cannot use a puppet nation to suppliment his or her main nation, either militarily, economically or by adding their populations together. Players may only role-play with their main nation within this region. Anything else is strictly forbidden

Any opinions, additions, revisions or changes to this rule are more than welcome. Please discuss!

Actually, saying that...

...Players may only role-play with their main nation within this region. Anything else is strictly forbidden

Needs to be changed in order for ambassadors to RP in Europa without having to move their main nation here, which could mess-up their region, especially if they are the UN Delegate, which is true in Nev's case. Also, must make it clear that their main nation must be in Europa.

Hmmm puppet nations....I got 12 nations in Nationstates, that if added give me a population of more than 10+ billion. But you know what an annoyance it is, to handle so much responsibility?

 

The basic fact of the matter is, having puppet nations is a hassel and its not worth doing, unless the other nation that you are actively using, is completely different. Then again anything is possible in this world.

 

I am in the process of creating the Wiki's for a nation called Falgan, which also functions as a theocratic state, Christian based and very much like The Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church. But I'm somewhat mixed on how this should be performed. Like the Vatican, its religious but I'm not sure if its population should reflect the members of the church in the world, or the actual population of a country. I think RPing it as a church, with no military, and no true political activity like a country would make it more interesting, and the population simply would be a reflection of religious followers within other lands.

I wholeheartly agree with this rule. I'll await the result of the poll.. and add it to the RP Rules & Guidelines thread if the vote ends positively. http://s7.invisionfree.com/Europa/index.php?showtopic=1396

Indeed. In order to RP, most people start by picking a place on the map,.. Asking for their main nation to be in Europa, may be asked a bit too much, since we've got several RP'ers from other regions. Better leave the "main-nation in Europa" out, and make an exception for foreign dignitaries. Although it'ld be nice if they have a nation in Europa, albeit not their main nation.

Thanks, EE.

 

This rule isn't to stop people having puppet nations, but rather not to use them to their benefit their RPing. Basically, you could have as many puppet nations as you want in Europa, but you can only use one of them to RP in the region.

A player cannot use a puppet nation to suppliment the nation they roleplay as, either militarily, economically or by adding their populations together. Players may only role-play with a single nation in Europa. Anything else is strictly forbidden

That any better?

 

@Xheng: That does sould like an interesting idea, although it may be hard to do.

It will be a difficult thing to do, because the "Falgan" idea is not a nation, it is an institution that does have an NS profile. I think it will act like the real world's Catholic Church, in that it has a multinational membership and something similar to a government, but has no military power and very small territories to actually control ie: Vatican city.

Okey...

 

Latest modification of the rule:

A player cannot use a puppet nation to suppliment the nation they roleplay as, either militarily, economically or by adding their populations together. Players may only role-play their main nation in Europa. Anything else is strictly forbidden.

I'm going to close this poll tomorrow, unless anyone else wishes to discuss, add to or change it in anyway. Then the discussions will begin again! tongue.gif

      From 2020-2021 the staff held regular meetings to discuss the need, governance and rules involved with the creation and use of a NPC or Non-Player Country. This document is the summary of these discussions.

      Greetings fellow humans!
      Me and @Mokhavia have been thinking that the land between me and Mokhavia is something that realisticly would not be empty and would make no sense for it to be empty. Because we both want claims on that area we decided that it would be even better to have an NPC in that area that has both of our cultures but does not want to be part of either Ateenia nor Mokhavia. Thus we have come up with the Federation of Safjal.
      The Federation of Safjal
      The Name Safjal comes from the Safjall mountains that exist in the modern Safjal territory where different tribes lived before the unification.
      flag:

      The Blue represents the blue skies of Safjal that rule over it and also the rivers and lakes that bring life to Safjal.
      The White represents the Snowy and pure lands that claim Safjal for most of the year aswell as peace that has ruled over those lands for centuries.
      The 7 Dots represent the 7 tribes of Safjal that united to first form the Confederacy of Safjal and later the Federation of Safjal.
      Coat of Arms:

       
      The 3 beavers represent the National animal of Safjal which are beavers. There are 3 because the Safjal national culture is formed from the 3 cultures that exist in it, the Ateenians, the Apsan and the Mokhavians.
       
      Location:

      Asumndan is the Capital of Safjal that was founded by the famous Chieftess Asmund Helgadottir who with her impressive charisma, managed to bring what was at the time the alliance of the 7 tribes, under 1 flag of Sjafal, aimed to be completly independent from both Mokhavia and Ateenia and protect its autonomous states from falling under either nations influence or rule. She was the founder of the Safjal nation that at the time was the Confederation of Safjal. As such she is remembered as the hero of Safjal and had the capital city of Asumndan built for her.
      (out of topic but if possible, could the eastern border be made into a more realistic border? Thanks)

      History:
      The path to Safjal nation began in 118 AD when the Jarldoms and Tribes of Ateenia united under the Kingdom of Ateenia, the 3 Ateenian tribes in Safjal area, did not want to be ruled by a king and instead wanted to maintain the rule of their Chief and the independence of their Cheiftoms, so they formed an alliance to fight for their independence together to prevent the integration into the Kingdom of Ateenia. Times went on and in 680 AD, the Mokhavian tribes united into the Mokhavian confederacy where all tribes maintained their autonomy, the 1 Apsan tribe in the Safjal lands did not however want to be ruled over by Mokhavians and seeked protection from the Ateenian tribes and thus joined the alliance formed to protect their independence.
      in 929 AD when the Mokhavian Confederacy united into the Unduk Federation. The 3 Mokhavian tribes in Safjal, displeased with the increased centralization and decreased autonomy of the tribes broke away, almost causing a war between them and Mokhavia, however because they joined the Alliance of Safjal, the Unduk Federation was discouraged from attempting to force those tribes back into its rule.
      A few minor wars followed however from 10th century to 17th century, Safjal was mostly peaceful. By 1678, The Safjal Alliance was more then just a defensive alliance, it had evolved into an economic, cultural and military alliance where the borders were opened and citizens of each tribe could visit each others nations. However such an alliance was still not safe from the increasing influence from both Mokhavia and Ateenia and the Safjal tribes were forced to form an unified nation, the Safjal Confederacy which was formed thanks to the charismatic hero Asmund Helgadottir and was ruled by a High Chief, which was elected by the 7 chiefs..
      The Safja confederacy continued to live in peace and prosperity but by the 19th century, its people became more aware and were sick and tired of being ruled by a despotic chief that was not elected, seeing the democracy rise in other countries, the Safjal people wanted leaders that represented them, they wanted democracy so in 1881 the people rose up and overthrew their chiefs, those that couldnt were later aided by the now democratic chiefdoms that forced the remaining despotic chiefdoms to become democratic so by 1887, all 7 chiefdoms of the Safjal Confederacy were democratic and the Chiefs from that point on, were elected by the people. In 1889 the Safjal people realised that even though their chiefdoms were now democratic, the Confederacy was still ruled by an unelected high chief that was quickly overthrown. The High Chief became an elected position that was voted for all Safjal people and eventualy in 1894, the elected High Chief called for a referendum for the chiefdoms of Safjal to become more centralized under the Federation of Safjal, which replaced the Safjal Confederacy after having passed the referendum.
      The Safjal people were finaly represented by their elected leaders and over time, the Council of Chieftains and the Council of Representatives were established as the upper and lower house with the upper house, the Council of Chieftains having 7 elected representatives each representing their state and the Council of Representatives that has 147 elected representatives.
       
      Everything else:
      The Federation of Safjal is considered very free and multicultural with its 3,721,808 population being 8% Apsan, 44.2% Mokhavian and 47.8% Ateenian.
      Not only does the Safjal nation have freedom of speech and expression, it also has the freedom of religion with Vjoldinism being belived by 39% of the population, Apsan Paganism 4.7% of the population, Mokhavian Paganism 24.6% of the population, other religions 7% of the population, 24.7% of the population is atheist.
      The Safjal GDP is 12,726$ per capita thus making the total GDP $47,4 billion,
      The Safjal HDI is 0.661
      The Safjal people are represented by both the upper and lower house and the democraticly elected High Chief.
      The Federation of Safjal's national languages are Ateenian and Standard Mokhavian and regionaly recognized language is Apsan.
      Safjal uses both Cyrillic and Ateenian script.
      Edit: Almost forgot, the Safjal currency is Safo.
