Are you sure about that?

Are the void decks the ground floors of those residential flats I saw everywhere in Singapore?
I have something way smaller and more effective.

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 Prydania, Minister of Home Affairs Nimarya, 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.
Get involved in trading cards: Our regional cards guild provides many resources you can take advantage of to increase the value of your deck, including several offerings of free cards. As a member of the guild, you can also participate in many other cards-related activities, including themed collections, pull events, and regular publications.
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.
The Northern Lights: Produced by the Ministry of Communications, this is our regional newspaper. It includes both general news and op-ed articles about various aspects of TNP and NS.
The North Star: Produced by the Ministry of Communications, The North Star informs TNPers of current internal matters and government activities.
The Roleplay Reel: Produced by the Ministry of Communications, The Roleplay Reel showcases roleplay works by members of TNP's two RP communities.
Press Releases: Produced by the Ministry of Home Affairs, press releases focus on news about the Executive Government, elections, and other regional issues of general interest.
Regional Assembly Digest: Produced by the Speaker's Office, the digest focuses on news about the legislative and other business of the Regional Assembly.
Information for WA Voters: Produced by the Ministry of WA Affairs, IFVs provide vote recommendations and analysis about all resolutions that reach the floor of the General Assembly or Security Council.
Weekly Anthologies: Produced by the Gameside Advocates, this series highlights dispatches produced by TNP nations.
Northern Broadcasting Service: Produced by the Ministry of Radio, this is our very own regional radio station in which our broadcasters provide their insight into current events in TNP and Nationstates.
WADP Awards: Produced as part of the WADP, this monthly publication presents regional awards to nations that actively participate in the World Assembly.
Literary Awards: Produced by the Gameside Advocates, this monthly publication presents regional awards to nations that actively post on the regional RMB or publish dispatches.

No, after we clear customs and immigration at the Vienna airport, we’re going directly from there by train to Linz. That afternoon we’ll visit Mauthausen, and then the next two days are for business. Then it’s an overnight train to the Frankfurt airport station, and the flight home.
It would be great to sightsee in Vienna, and some of the folks coming out are going to take some days off to do that. Schönbrunn probably is on their must-visit lists if they head to Vienna.
In a sense, I’m glad I won’t be sticking around. Two of the guys that are flying out from the states are going to be surprised to learn that they have a new employer, and I’m pretty sure one of them is going to be furious about it.
Not to be rood, but mind your pings please, thank you
I went to Europe last December, interesting how everything looks like home(London) yet is uniquely different in every way
Vienna’s orchestras/operas are nice, you should go watch a performance
The Finnish Air Force
82 Years of Tactical Air Supremacy
The Air Force organizes and trains airborne, airbase, and command and control units. In co-ordination with the Army and the Navy, Air Force units conduct domestic and international operations together with other nations, organisations and authorities. The Air Force's military units are geared towards national and Eurokorps missions. They should be prepared to take part in Eurokorps military operations outside Finland, and the Air Force contributes to such missions with personnel and materiel.

January is best for Vienna, especially if you have a dancing partner. I’m definitely keeping that in mind now. But she needs lessons first. ;)
And Europe has a great deal of diversity, historically, culturally, architecturally, and scenically. Verbier is vastly different from London’s CBD, even though both are heavily populated with Britons. (I still can’t understand what Glaswegians are saying.)
Ironically, I’ll be flying back to Europe at the end of September. I’m trying to convince that hoped-for dance partner to come visit Monaco with me.

Aerilia and The anarchist far east
The tank is unable to break the wall, you are stuck in the room forever...
Well unless you use the doors, or climb out of the window, or climb out of the skylight, or walk through the other couple holes in the wall, or dig out The anarchist far east and you both dig to freedom...
