@VTR_M In order for your Mapplication™ to be processed, you need to first have applied for Hall of Nations citizenship. Once you have submitted that application we'll get your Mapplication™ processed. 

@PumpkinHeadTheLegend To comply with TWP RP standards for realism, please choose a different name for your map nation, as The Free Pumpkin State, whose capital is in Pumpkin Head, will not fly (nor will a breakaway state called "Anti-Hell".

@The Empire of Gordinium Your Mapplication™ looks good, but I cannot access your map claim image. You need to either attach it to your post or upload it to an image hosting site like Imgur and paste that link into your post.

Thanks all! The October map update will be out on October 15th as scheduled, but if these issues are not resolved before then, we will hotfix you in after that.

Resident nation: Uldrath

Discord name: RandomGuy098 #4582

Map nation name: Enlightened Dominion of Uldrath

A couple sentences about your nation: (original content, not NationStates stats)

The Enlightened Dominion of Uldrath is a big advanced nation with a very strong economy and one of the oldest nations in Nur. It has been ruled by the house of Oskluvhan for 1922 years. The people still love the ruling monarch and have shown almost fanatical support because the country has grown in prosperity since then. Regions are governed by the council of magistrates and divided into districts, in which each district is ruled by a magistrate. Uldrathian lands have been divided by a mountain range in the middle, a mix of plains and rainforests in the north, temperate forests, and steppes in the south.

The Uldrathian economy is a mix of industrial, information technology, agrarian, and sea-based. Industrial mining complex in the mountain ranges produces mineral resources including Copper, Iron, Bauxite, Tungsten, Chromium, Lead, Manganese, Nickel, Platinum, Sulphur, Lead, Zinc, Nickel, Gold, Diamond, Tin, Silver, Salt, Phosphor, Talc, Gypsum, Potassium, Fluorite, Platinum, etc. Telecommunication services, the internet, social media, digital banking, etc. are the leading industries in information technology. Due to the mix of imperial and nomadic cultures, superior techniques through trial and error and technological advancements have made agriculture and aquaculture one of the backbones of the Uldrathian economy.

Additionally, The Enlightened Dominion of Uldrath is a pacifist nation that will solve all issues diplomatically and will only go to war as a last result. It is also a very self-sufficient nation and exports abundant goods like minerals and foodstuffs.

A couple sentences about your nation: (original content, not NationStates stats)

An environment-loving nation of patriotic people. Industry and society is very science and fact based, but the country often implements very strict laws, resulting in good control but low freedoms.

Tech and science are its main industries, and though a small, sparsely populated country, it’s peoples largest desire is to be seen as more significant on the world stage, for all it is currently known for is being very cold, having nice people, and strict laws.

I’m it is militarily, very cautious, and is often trying its hardest to make tourism more of an industry.

Peourouin grew off trading posts throughout history, being one of many valuable places along the western coast of Nur. Much of the country’s density is on the coast, however, many cities like the capital are inland due to river tributaries that allow for inland development. Politics were primarily solidified by the social structures of natives, now of allied regions (North to South): Ethoem, Peourgogne, Celatata, Mais, Apexpol.

A couple sentences about your nation: The Most Serene, Supreme, Beneficent, Peaceful, and Infinite See of Aukera is a large, tranquil island nation to the North of Nur. The ancient seat of a monolithic religion, Aukeran government is an absolute fusion of church and state, with the Most Radiant Emperor occupying the highest seat of both institutions. The identity of this monarch, however, is a closely guarded secret, truly known only to a trusted council of advisers elevated from the legislature to serve as His executive body.

Aukerans are a prideful, pragmatic, though very warm and jovial people. Their culture has endured the ravages of both time and human nature, and they are afforded great liberties and care by the nation that has shepherded them through the ages.

A merging of several smaller states into a larger Federal Republic. Struggles with conflicting regional identities, and the Federal government promoting a more unified national identity. While regional government may be working against this. Though Federal policy is above regional law.

The nations official religion, Eilini Hasoqir is prominent and one of the main unifying factors, although other forms of Hasoqir are practiced, as well as other minority religions. It should be noted that the Nation has a policy of religions tolerance. This does not stop their being widespread Ethnocentrism in regards to religious beliefs however.

Any other inspirations or concepts you want to share: 

There are two houses an elected lower house and un-elected upper house. 

Lower House
The Lower House's elected representatives are elected every three years on a parliamentary basis where they stand in their constituency and whoever wins the most votes becomes the representative for said constituency. Constituencies are based off population and vary in size if one gets too big and is therefore considered un-representative it can be divided into smaller constituencies. In this way the democratic process is preserved. Whichever party makes it past 50% of overall seats or forms a coalition forms the new government and a member of that party becomes the prime minister. Party's that only get a small percentage can choose to back a bigger party in hopes of getting them over the 50% mark or forming a stronger opposition. 

 

Upper House:

The Upper House is an un-elected house concerned with matters of the constitution, international law, and united nations conventions. The appointment system is based on national awards for service to the country. Any citizen is eligible to be nominated and the nominees are selected by a committee made up of randomly selected citizens  those who go through the committee stage are then passed onto a national vote. If you win this vote you reive a medal for services to the state as well as a reasonable amount of reward money and can accept your seat in the Upper House if you so choose.  In this manner we have a check and balance to the Government so that they do not pass any unlawful legislation. The other way to challenge this would be in the Nations  courts which are completely separated from Government. There are no political parties in the Upper House though you can voluntarily subscribe to one. However, unlike in the lower house you do not have an obligation to vote with them. In an event of the two houses not being able to agree on the passing of legislation the Lower House can override the unelected Upper House. This, however, is only meant to be used in extreme circumstances.

 

Head of State:

The Head of State is elected in an election every three years though this is one year delayed from the Governmental elections. It is a direct election and whoever gets the most votes wins. Their role is constitutional and they lead the Upper House (and may only be elected from members of the Upper House). Each party has a President and Prime Minister stand generally speaking. The President has limited executive powers as dose the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister is selected from the party that won the governmental election campaign by the President pending Parliamentary approval, the Prime Minister can only be removed by Parliament though the president can use an executive power to initiate the prosses. They are the official nations Head-of-State and are commander-in-chief of the Military. In this the President has symbolic and Executive power while the Prime Minister holds most of the policy and legislative power.

The United Nations of Kalmach is a nation of united states, with a congressional system very similar to that of Denmark in real life. The threat of war has been on their doorstep for long, and because of that they have started to heavily invest in military, with over 16% of their gdp being dedicated to that alone. They believe in extreme capitalism, and have developed a frightingly effecient economy because of this.

The Ionian  economy is mostly reliant on manufacturing and exports, followed closely by services. Ionia is a peaceful country, with a "passive" military that only operates should the entire country be threatened. Ionia is always looking for opportunities with other nations.

Resident nation: Cobeidha

Discord name: Alerbi#9028

Map nation name: Cobeidha

A couple sentences about your nation:

The Kingdom of Cobeidha is a flourishing nation sandwiched between Artztokzsia and Holy Qostaoyae. It is home to the Cobeidhi people, who have a strong, yet traditional, history and customs that has existed since the days they've lived as nomads. The current Dahamshi Dynasty united the warring tribes of Cobeidha into the single nation many centuries ago, taking the nation into the modern age at the time. The time spent since unification was used to develop the country into a successful, moderately rich economy that it is today.

The King of Cobeidha, Hilal XII Dahamshi, has ruled the country for the past four decades, however his rule is merely ceremonial. True power rests with the Grand Majlis, the Parliament of Cobeidha, headed by the Prime Minister, Bishr Bashran. The Grand Majlis is the unicameral legislative body that has full decision-making powers.

Resident nation: Ostronia

Discord name: Kony2012#3883

Map nation name: The Federal Republic of Ostronia

A couple sentences about your nation: Steaming jungles and sunbaked savannahs; exotic ivories, animals, dyes and fruits; poverty, malnutrition, illiteracy, child soldiers, and civil war: these are the stereotypical depictions of the Federal Republic of Ostronia, a former colony of the United Nations of Kalmach. But Ostronia in the fifteenth century AF is no longer your grandfather’s dark continent. Literacy is higher than ever before—the schoolyards overflow with pupils, both girls and boys. Infant and maternal mortality have been sliced in half and continue to fall—the country is now making its first serious provisions for a growing elderly class. The economy, bit by bit, is turning around from stagnation and corruption. Federal representation in the new constitution has turned ethnic violence into lively parliamentary debate. True, separatist parties still contribute a vocal minority to the national parliament, and the shadow of terrorism and civil strife still stalks the night. True, the government remains heavily indebted to foreign creditors for its costly development programs. True, the cities are dirty, crowded, and their infrastructure crumbles under the weight of internal migration. But these are the problems of not a least developed country, but a middling one, and one that dreams of rising above the middle income trap and joining the table of the most prosperous nations in the world—on some far-off, yet glorious day.

Any other inspirations or concepts you want to share: If you’re looking for real-life analogues, Ostronia is most similar to Nigeria, albeit probably less resource-dependent on oil and somewhat more stable and prosperous. It might be somewhere between Nigeria and India in that respect.

Resident Nation: Hezur

Discord Name: Sheepy#2656

Map Nation Name: Hezur

A couple sentences about your nation: A former Aukeran canton, Hezur won a tentative independence in 1357, which, to this day, remains contested by the throne. Barren and mountainous, the young nation draws its wealth from the depths, beneath earth and sea. Mining, offshore drilling, oil refining, fishing and whaling represent Hezur's dominant industries, while the agricultural sector has historically struggled. Cross-strait relationships are strained, and Hezuri citizens support the government's policy of mandatory conscription with near unanimity. Religious and personal freedoms are sacrosanct in spite of the small nation's heavy militarization.

Bulgowie w 1382 roku upadło przez wojne domową co wykorzystała Bulguria.

Resident nation: Kingdom of Saranzio

Discord name: The Gnomer#9248

Map nation name: Saranzio

A couple sentences about your nation:

The Kingdom of Saranzio is a tropical island nation situated off the northeastern coast of Nur, home to the Versima, Nuàrdi, and Arvisco peoples. The tropical island nation was founded in 746 AF after the coronation of King Saveri of the Ortolu Dynasty coinciding with the ascension of the Triumphalist faith. Since its foundation, Saranzio has fostered a proud identity and culture in connection with the islands and the sea. Saranzians are a passionate and cordial people, yet equally haughty and entitled, being eager to warmly welcome foreigners into their home to illustrate to them the finer points of their culture.

Saranzio is a recently industrialized nation with an emerging market economy, with plastics, raw metals, vegetable oils, and seafood being its dominant industries.
