The full statistics are in the above Google Sheet, which details the current map claims, and everything from the borders to land area of each map location.
⛯ Lazarus Regional Map Claim
Non-WA nation claims are not permitted outright, as they require verification to prevent puppet spam on the map. Make a forum account or join our discord server (and register your nation with Penelope).*
WA nation claims are permitted, as they are already verified by the game as not being a puppet.
If you have a discord account, but don't want to go through Penelope, you can register on the forum through your discord account.
The application area for that is here: Regional Map Requests
*This will require being on our discord server (which has a bot to verify nations), or having a forum account, as there is no other way to prevent puppet spam on the regional map
Check the claimed spots to check whether the spot is already taken:
Spot(s) # Claimed
85, 91, 98
133, 134, 147, 148, 168
Note: Nations that cease to exist for 15 days or so are removed from the map to make room for new claims.

⛯ Puppet Claim Policy
Since there have been several queries over puppet claims. Obviously puppet claims are not allowed, as it denies a place for other players on the map.
This is meant as a map to include as many players as possible, which is going to be an impossible task if everyone adds their puppets. RP wise, I could technically claim three nation spots, now multiply that by 10-20+ players and you get the picture. There won't be enough room.
There is nothing stopping someone making their own nation map out of their claim that includes their puppets for RP purposes.
Note: This is for display purposes of claiming land, as the map to be used will have more ocean space and be in slightly different locations.

Map applications that have been lodged and are in process are listed here:
⛯ Editing the Regional Map
The regional map uses Affinity Designer, as Inkscape SVG files can have compatibility issues with other programs.
However, Inkscape allows the editing of SVG files for free on multiple platforms. Editing this file in other programs however risks breaking compatibility.
Knowledge of how to use the objects, text, and color functions of Inkscape.
The latest SVG file of the regional map, which is near the top of the page under the SVG regional map image, shown as Download Link.
Regional Map Contents:
Regional map layer,
South/North pole layers
When you open the SVG file in Inkscape, you will need to click on Object -> Objects, to view the map areas.
The states layer contains the land masses, which are labeled by state ID, though Inkscape can break formatting.
The south and north pole layers are a placeholder for now, and they might be re-developed at some point to be a bit better looking.
⛯ Scaling the Regional Map
To scale the regional map we use a program called ImageJ, which auto-scales images by scales you set.
In order to do this a PNG file is used, which has no nation labels, and only flat areas to measure.
ImageJ, which is downloadable here: https://imagej.nih.gov/ij/download.html
Java, if not already installed, is downloadable here: https://www.java.com/en/download/
The scaling map to be opened in ImageJ, which is downloadable here: https://i.imgur.com/XnBVdsL.png
1. Once you have unzipped the ImageJ download and opened ImageJ, you will need to Open the scaling map you downloaded from imgur.
2. Next on the menu bar of ImageJ, there is a fifth button labeled /, or Straight, which you will need to click on and select any blank sea area of the map.
3. Next you will need to click Analyze -> Set Scale, from the menu bar, which will open up the scaling area.
The scale for the map is as follows:
Known Distance: 1.00
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.0
(Optional) Unit: miles
4. Select the Wand tool, or the eighth button, and select the land mass you want to measure.
5. Click Analyze -> Measure from the menu bar, which will then calculate the square area and the perimeter/border.
6. The Results window will open, and you can either select this data and copy/paste it somewhere or go file -> save as, and save it as a csv file.
