Welcome to Thalassia! I hope youíll like it here!

Here is our welcome dispatch:

Note: Some of the information in this dispatch is out of date and is awaiting updating!

Welcome to Thalassia!

Hello and welcome to the region of Thalassia, a seafaring bastion of freedom and democracy!! We're so glad you've decided to join our community. This guide is for all new Thalassians, whether you are new to the game in general or just new to our region. Still have questions? Ask on the RMB or reach out to a member of our government!

If you would like to suggest an edit or addition, please contact Sho.

Your First Steps

So you've just joined our region, you've answered your issues, and now you're not sure what to do next? Not a problem!

First things first... Have you blocked those pesky recruitment telegrams? If yes, perfect! Next question.

Now... Are you a member of the WA?

But Sho! Why should I join the WA? I'm glad you asked, theoretical other half of this conversation! Even though our citizens are not required to join the World Assembly or "WA", they should consider it because:

WA citizens have the right to vote on World Assembly legislation as well as participate in our regional referendums, run for a regional office, and to collect and give endorsements, which strengthen our region. And when you endorse our President and Vice President, you're helping keep our region safe!

Now... Introduce yourself on Thalassia's RMB and become a part of our community. Request your spot on the map and start roleplaying. Perhaps write a factbook or two. NationStates is made richer by its users' imaginations! (back to top)

Rules And Regulations

Every game has its rules and every government has its laws. No one is exempt! Make sure you read these so you aren't caught unaware!

Please don't police the RMB. We have moderators for that! If you're experiencing an issue, reach out to Home Affairs or any regional officer with "Border Control" permissions.

Thalassian Government

Roles of the Ministries

The Prime Minister oversees the Cabinet, comprised of four mandatory ministries (and any additional ones the incumbent Prime Minister may create for the term), which is appointed to assist with various regional programs and activities. Each ministry serves as an important cog in the machine that keeps this region running!

The mandatory ministries and their respective roles are:

  • Culture

    The Ministry of Culture is in charge of planning, managing, and moderating community events and activity, ranging from games to cultural enrichment to roleplay. They also manage the map of Thalassia, a crucial tool to regional roleplay.

  • Foreign Affairs

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs handles diplomacy with other regions and organizations. Members of this ministry serve as ambassadors to our embassies and integrate themselves into their communities, looking for ways to strengthen our relationship, whether through official or casual means.

  • Information

    The Ministry of Information ensures our citizens have access to important information and regional news. They oversee the integration of newcomers and maintain our regional newspaper. If you ever have a question, these are usually the people to ask- if they don't know, they'll point you to someone who should.

  • Security

    The Ministry of Security oversees the moderation and safety of our community, as well as the collection and management of intelligence necessary to the Thalassian government. 'Nuff said.

How to Join the Ministries

The Cabinet is requested to either handle the recruitment for their ministries directly or to send in a request to be placed on this regional civil service dispatch. Nations are encouraged to telegram the minister of the ministry they would like to partake in.

New citizens are encouraged to apply and build their resumes but MUST be WA residents or able to confirm the identity of their WA nation, if in another region. Some ministries have stricter requirements than others. Applicants may partake in more than one ministry, but the Prime Minister or a cabinet minister may dismiss you from a position if they believe you are spread too thin. (back to top)

IDK but I just need to see NS memes lol.

Maritagnia wrote:IDK but I just need to see NS memes lol.

Iíve been looking of those. There are some, but they all relate to the Pacific regions one way or another.

A question to the leaders behind the various nations:

How does one construct a dispatch? I have found the "Welcome to Thalassia" guide quite helpful, and I'd like to create a dispatch for a guide to my nation. I understand a little bit of the coding involved (I've used bbcode before), but I'm at a loss on how to otherwise construct it. Any help would be great.

All the best,
The gal behind The Republic of Birnam Wood

I would be more than happy to lend a helping hand. Could you elaborate a bit more on what you mean by a guide to your nation? Would you like to create something more formal looking, like a wiki, or perhaps something similar?

A wiki? That seems a bit above my scope. I just want to know how to format things in a way that makes them look nice. I'd like to have some geography, some tourist info (in case they get lost in the woods), some government facts, etc.

By the way, the guide you made is really excellent. I hadn't known that you could make your own parliament diagram. I'll be using that.

Hello there, This nation is a puppet of Sauelsuesor and is not a world assembly member.
I have noticed that I have been receiving telegrams for the election and while I have no issue with these telegrams but just as a friendly reminder to save stamps, there is a +w.a. tag or similar that only send the telegram to members of the world assembly and thus ones who can vote.

Thank you so much! I'm glad to hear it was helpful. :D

I'll be sending you a telegram in a moment so I don't clutter the RMB with my explanations.
