Welcome to The North Pacific!
Welcome to The North Pacific (TNP)! You might be a new nation to the game or in TNP, and you don't really know what is going on or where to start. Or you may be an experienced member but have several questions regarding some of the activities going on. Whatever the case, we have put together this handbook that you can use to familiarize yourself with the game and TNP, and to make the most out of your time in NationStates (NS).
The handbook has a number of different sections. The index below will help you navigate them. If you have any questions not answered in this handbook, feel free to send a telegram to Delegate McMasterdonia, Minister of Home Affairs Konar, or any of the Gameside Advocates and Mentors. They will be glad to help! Additionally, we are always looking to improve this handbook, so let us now if you think something should be added or changed.
This section covers the very first items you should check off as a newcomer to the game and TNP.
Why you should be in TNP: Selecting a region for your nation is one of the most important decisions you will make in the game. We hope you will make TNP your home, and this link explains why. If you have already decided to stay here, that's great!
Join the regional forum: The forum is where most government and roleplay activities take place. Registering an account is very easy. You should get yourself an account so that you can check out what's going on and join in on the fun.
Join our regional chat: Our Discord server is where our members hang out and chat about the game and real life subjects. You can join and introduce yourself to our community. Additionally, if you have any questions, asking on Discord is the fastest way to get help.
Apply for citizenship: Citizenship is your ticket to TNP. As a citizen, you can vote to elect our Delegate and other government officials, hold them accountable, and even run for these positions yourself. All you need to apply is a nation in TNP and an account on the forum.
Ways to Get Involved
Now that you have cleared the basics, you must be looking for things to do. Below are some of the opportunities TNP offers.
Get involved in the government: There are many ways to get involved in the government straight away after joining TNP. You can write the regional laws in the Regional Assembly. You can take part in the day-to-day running of the region in the Executive Staff. Or, you can protect TNP at home and abroad in the North Pacific Army.
Get involved in the World Assembly: Joining the World Assembly (WA) is one of the best ways to empower your nation, especially in TNP. Thanks to our WA Development Program, as a WA member you can determine international laws, have one of the highest endorsement counts in the entire game, and even win awards!
Get involved in RolePlay: We have not one, but two vibrant RolePlay (RP) universes, Eras and Strangereal. Each comes with its own map, chronology, and physics laws. If you commit to being active in RP, you can claim a spot in either universe's map, and join others in weaving stories about your nation and its role in the world.
Through our regional nation, The Northern Light, we post a number of regular regional publications. You can follow them to stay up to speed with what's going on in TNP.

Well, you donít actually have to play. Itís just like the FIDAC World Cup. The results are 50% random.
Don't get all pissy please, this was only a strategy I employed in the game. And yes, you are right, I have deliberated with Deerfenland, 5 kingdoms of Britannia, Western Vapia, and other members of Pax Havenica. We have all come to the conclusion that yes, it is permissible for the treaty of capesterre to be rendered null and void. I will allow you to merge with Deerfenland without interference and we can consider this matter resolved. I will release an IC statement from the Minister of the Exterior today and that will be that. Okay?
Due to recent actions and talks that have occurred, the 5 kingdoms condemn the vile traitors action that have occurred. Edward VII has mobilized armed forces and is preparing incase war is to break out in Fuseana
Everyone calm down and let's discuss this properly as until further notice I will keep treaty of Capesterre until these issues are resolved
Penult and Fuseana
How dare you shoot Saint Castathe and no.
So, these are the events speculated to happen in this order(My point of View)
1. Orbitar get invaded by the Lotion Empire.
2. I declare war of Lotion Empire for invading Orbitar who I have a defensive pact with.
3. Penult declares war on me because he has a defensive pact with The Lotion Empire.
4. The Mike Roctafinserland declares war on me because I am in a state of war with Penult.
5. The Fusean Union joins the conflict because of your intervention and Penult's in this invasion.
6. Your Coalition joins the war due to the Fusean Union's intervention.
7. I call my allies and get other nations involved.
8. Due to my Unions allies and your allies, OSEAN and PH get involved due to alliances and agreements(Don't know which side).
9. The Larger nations of the world gets involved who are currently unaligned to any of the larger alliances.
10. Imperialistic nations on SR use this as a opportunity to invade other nations.
11. The next World War is Created(Weltkreig).
So basically, the entire state of our world rests on 5 nations soldiers Orbitar(If he chooses to void the invasion), and The Lotion Empire(If he decides to Invade [nation]Orbitar)[/nation], Me(East tighterrouraeih, if I chose to honor my defensive pact), Penult(If he Chose to Honor his defensive pact)and The Mike Roctafinserland(Because you like Penult).
This will probably snowball fast.
These have all been updated. Here is a summary of the changes
The Fusea Continental Railway is to be completely BLOCKED until disputes are resolved, in one way or another.
Fuseana will no longer sustain a positive diplomatic relationship with Penult.
