I think you're right. I just happend to catch some of the show today. A friend and I were talking about how someone might feel if they were invited to be a guest. Being familiar with the show I think I would be a little freaked out

Hello and Welcome to The West Pacific!

What is NationStates?

NationStates (NS) is a nation simulation game where we, the players, run nations and band together in regions to have a good time. First and foremost, there is your individual nation. This is what you see with when you login to NS. You have the authority to govern it as you see fit by answering issues, which change your laws, statistics, and rankings. You can find these using the different symbol tabs on your nation page.

You can also join the World Assembly, apply for regional citizenship, and join the regional government, which you'll read about in the next few sections.

Regions and the World Assembly

Every nation is a part of a region. Like you, they start out in one of the five feeder regions. From there, you can either stay where your nation was founded or move to a different region. Most regions have their own systems of government that have been created by the players who live there. Each region is headed by a Delegate, who is the nation with the most World Assembly endorsements.

The World Assembly (WA) is similar to the United Nations in the real world. In this body, resolutions and laws are passed that all WA member nations must abide by. While no one can force you to join the WA, we highly recommend it, as it is a first step toward becoming more involved in the region.

While you can create as many nations as you like, you are only allowed to have one nation in WA. Anyone who violates this will have their nation deleted by the game's moderators. Once you have joined the WA, you may vote on proposals in the General Assembly (GA) and Security Council (SC), and endorse other nations in your region. The West Pacific believes in the inherent sovereignty of nations to govern their own nations without being forced to follow the WA's resolutions. For this reason, we encourage you to vote against new resolutions, and vote for repealing past resolutions.

As mentioned earlier, the nation with the most WA endorsements in a region becomes the Delegate, gaining executive power in the region. For those reasons, if you decide to join the WA, be sure to endorse our Delegate Bran Astor and the Guardians. To endorse a nation after you join WA, find their page and then scroll to the bottom, where there will be a button to endorse. If you have any further questions about the World Assembly you can read the WA FAQ, ask them on the Regional Message Board (RMB), or send a telegram to our current Delegate, Bran Astor. Heís a great guy and will kindly help with and questions or concerns you may have!

All about The West Pacific!

Here in The West Pacific, we use a meritocratic system of government with the Delegate at its head. The more active you are in the region and the more capable you show yourself to be, the more opportunities you will get for responsibility and advancement. Because of this, we are one of the most continuously innovative regions in the game. The regional government is made up of the Delegate, Bran Astor, the Guardians, Ministers, Deputy Ministers, and staff. All positions are appointed by the Delegate based on merit except for the Deputy Ministers, who are elected by the regional legislature, the Hall of Nations.

Members of the Hall of Nations are citizens of The West Pacific, while all other nations are only considered residents. To join the Hall, you must make an account on our forums, Linksubmit a citizenship application, and repeat the citizenship oath. Your application will be processed within a few days, or up to a week during election cycles, so be patient. Once you've been accepted, congratulations! You're a citizen of The West Pacific and have full voting privileges in the Hall of Nations!

After applying for citizenship, you can join one of TWP's four government ministries to get more involved!

Today In The West

Good morning/afternoon/night West Pacificans!

I would like to say thank you to Fuentana for giving me the opportunity to let me do TITW this week and I would like to thank Bran Astor(whom you should totally endorse if you haven't already) and the Guardians for maintaining the amazing community we have here in the West Pacific. If you haven't guessed based on this statement, today is Thank you Thursday, show your thankfulness for people or things today and maybe you might make someone's day with your thanks!

Do you know what I am really craving today? A nice brisket or a juicy hamburger for today is national Brisket or Hamburger Day! While yesterday was focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, we all deserve a cheat day here and there so if you feel like treating yourself today, try to have a brisket or a burger today, it is ok if you don't though!

As mentioned a bit earlier, for those who haven't already, endorse Bran Astor to help us try to reach our goal of 1k in May in these last few days of May! By endorsing the delegate, you support the community and the TWP leadership!

No Today in History I'm afraid but here is a question members of the community can discuss and share: What is something that you have experienced in your life that you are the most thankful for?

That is all from me today, have a fantastic day in the West Pacific!

Every morning, I am grateful for my coffee. But I am especially grateful for it on days when I did not sleep well.

Such as today

Greetings Madame and Gentlemen. May I ask what should I suppose to do? Completely newbie here and I am in dire need of help.

Much appreciated!

First, you're already on the right track by being respectable, asking questions politely, and getting involved in TWP's RMB. That's awesome and don't worry if you make mistakes. It's what you do about them that matters. :D

Missourtama and Fuentana have already shared with you the dispatches you'll need to get started (scroll up the RMB a little bit to see them if you don't see them here, or go back one page for them). I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do, and good luck in TWP! Oh and as one bonus point here: Check out our Discord too! A lot of us in TWP hang out there and you can learn a lot there!

Hello everyone, I'm really excited right now!
I finally got my nation out of being a "Corrupt Dictatorship" to a "Mother knows best state" .... It's not great but it's a step in the right direction! :D

Thereís 266 miles to Durham, weíve got a full tank of gas, a four-year-old in the back, the countryís under lockdown and I canít bloody see anything.

Hit it!

Hmm, I'm not sure if I am losing my eyesight? Eek!

Do I:
a) get someone to take me to A&E.
b) Walk into a high street opticians.
c) Visit my local family doctor.

<Bing! Bright Idea>

d) None of the above but instead get into a car and drive 50 miles on public roads on a round trip.

<roll eyes>
You really couldn't make this stuff up!

Or as the other meme I saw went:

What really staggers me even more than Cummings' contempt of others' intelligence and the law is the reaction of:

- The Police: Well we've concluded Mr C. broke the law but we will not pursue the matter further*.
- The Government: We consider the matter closed.

* I wish the police took that attitude with me when I got nabbed for speeding back in January. <sigh>

I've only been to Doune Castle in Scotland, which brought me great joy because it was the filming site for a good chunk of Monty Python and the Holy Grail (and it was Winterfell in season 1 of GoT).
