Donation is not required, although if you have the means and you wish to support the region, please contribute. The region is hard to manage and we do it for free. In case you don't know stamps are purchased in the store, and we use them to send mass telegrams. Mass telegrams are telegrams we can send that we base off of a template, and recruit multiple nations at a time. Stamps keep the region running. Your support means a lot and will not go unrecognised, as I tell the staff who donates. When I do this, I do not disclose the amount, but we discuss your future as a patriot, and we try to reward and accommodate your donation as best as we can.
Your donation directly supports Nation States. Many websites just like this actually have a membership fee, a monthly fee or a one-time fee. Nation States gets most of its money from Advertisements, or from products in the store. Thus, removing the fee's and allowing such a great community to build. By buying stamps you are truly directly supporting the site.
For every 1,000 telegram stamps you donate, you will be allowed to put up a regional poll of your choice. The Founder and the Goverment will pick certain days for these polls. For every 5,000 telegram stamps you donate, your name will be added to a special "patrons wall".
