The Illuminati Regional Message Board
Yes, you can have it.
I've made a list with all guides links, if you like it I recommend you to support my dispatch to be seen by all beginner players. It will last as long as this game exists.
BB-Codes in text messages:
These BBCode-like tags can be used in Dispatches, Telegrams, Regional Message Board (RMB) posts, Regional World Factbook Entries (WFEs), and World Assembly proposals.
Not all tags are valid for all message types: see The Complete List of NSCodes.
Older NationStates Guide:
- 2015's NS Guide about the general things in NationStates to be known by the new players.
- 2016's NationStates Guide about the basics and updated in 2017.
- 2016's TWP Survival Guide to NS - a guide made by the regional officers of The West Pacific.
NS Nation Issues List:
- NationStates Issues - This thread lists every issue in the game with Dilemmas and responses. Pick an issue from the list and decide which are acceptable and unacceptable responses to it for your region.
- NS Issues Effect Lines - This page created by Trotterdam lists the resulting effect line that appears in the nation's happenings after answering an issue. Use this page to know what effect lines to look for from acceptable/unacceptable responses for your nation's issue policy.
Activity Feed or API - Found at the top of every region page, the activity feed shows all the changes happening in the region. This may be used to monitor a region. For example, you can filter it to only show 'laws' (issue responses) so it is easier to view law changes in the region. - Example: API The_South_Pacific Laws Filter (by filter), or you can watch the simple Regional Activity as it is shown in NationStates - example: NS Page=Activity/View=Region_The_South_Pacific.
Issues are political decisions that players make, which shape their nations as a result.
Telegrams are private messages that can be sent between players.
A newly-founded nation in NationStates begins with a population of 5 million. Every 24 hours, the population of a nation increases.
A nation's dossier is a compilation of brief information on other nations & regions which a player can select. This show a limited number of nations & regions in the Dossier.
Settings is a page where a player can modify aspects of his/her nation.
People, Government and the Economy
People: A pie-chart illustrating the leading causes of death throughout your nation.
Government: An illustration showing the distribution of your budget.
Economy: An illustration of the division of the public and private sectors.
Every day, the game will generate a Census Report on a particular subject and will rank all nations and regions from highest to lowest. Such topics include 'Most Extreme', 'Most Cultured' and 'Best Healthcare'. Score well enough and you'll be awarded a little medal that appears on your nation's page.

This may be used also as a profile of the user's political beliefs. However, despite the fact that an user can create many nations he wish, a player can use only one nation in the World Assembly, otherwise the player can get severe punishment on the NS site ("warning" at first time only if lucky, but you can get "banned IP" in many cases).

- The WA is the world's governing body. Membership is voluntary, but all member nations must abide by legislation it passes. [More Information] The World Assembly has member nations and Regional Delegates. The oldest Council of the World Assembly, the General Assembly concerns itself with international law. Its resolutions are applied immediately upon passing in all WA member nations. The Security Council recognizes and responds to individual nations and regions, with the aim of ensuring global harmony. By being a member, your nation can endorse other nations, and also receive endorsements. You may also vote on the current WA resolution, shown by clicking on 'World Assembly' in the side-bar on NS. With two endorsements, you are allowed to submit proposals to the WA, which may be put up for a vote if they receive enough support.

- Gameplay (as opposed to role-play) is what happens in the game and that which is related to it. At a basic level, it involves playing NationStates the game, but it also encompasses the organisation of this gameplaying, which often takes place on regional offsite forums, chats or Regional Message Board. Gameplay includes (but is not limited to) nation management, regional politics and the invader/defender gameplay.

- Store is the page where to browse NS shelves and shopping at NationStates, also you can gift this purchase to someone else. Your purchase is applied to one nation. It doesn't expire: you keep it for the lifetime of your nation. It isn't transferrable, so please make sure you're logged in as the right nation, or, in the case of gifts, that the right nation is displayed as a giftee at the top of this page. If the nation ceases to exist due to inactivity, your purchase isn't lost and will be restored along with the nation when you return (in terms of 3 years if you're not Site-Supporter). Purchases are final and non-refundable. They don't grant exemptions from site rules, and can't be transferred or recovered from nations that are deleted by moderators.
- NS News is the page where the news and events in game are shown.
- Ban: An act which prevents a nation from entering a given region.
- Cease-to-Exist (CTE): The deletion of a nation after a period of inactivity lasting 28 days or 60 days if vacation mode is set. A nation can be 'refounded' by the owner by login.
- Eject: An act of ejecting a nation from a region. This can be performed by the Founder (with cost to the nation) or by the Delegate (with an influence cost incurred on the Delegate). Nations who have been ejected will relocate involuntarily to The Rejected Realms.
- Feeders: Regions that new nations are founded in. Sinkers include The Pacific, The North Pacific, The South Pacific, The West Pacific, and The East Pacific.
- Founder: A nation who 'founded' the region and hence is the original inhabitant. The Founder, depending on access to the administration panel, has the power to ban, eject, banject nations, change tags, suppress RMB posts, change the flag, construct and close embassies, and change the World Factbook Entry.
- Sinkers: Regions that nations returning to the game, or in the case of The Rejected Realms are ejected from a different region go to. Sinkers include Lazarus, Osiris, Balder, and The Rejected Realms.
- Out-of-character (OOC): Post of this sort is used to convey messages unrelated to the roleplay, such as informing fellow players that you will be out of town for a week and therefore will not be online in NationStates.
- Puppets: Nations created to be used secondary to the primary nation. Some players choose to use puppet nations as WA nations while others choose to use it to boost a region's population. Reasons vary and there is nothing wrong with creating puppets for one's purpose.
- Regional Message Board (RMB): A chat function visible in a region (scroll down the region's homepage). This aspect allows nations to communicate and displays their flag as well as allowing them to 'like' others' messages and quote them.
- Telegram (TG): A private messaging system that acts as emails for NS.
- Warzones: Regions which have no founder and cannot be refounded. In these regions, ejections/bannings do not incur an influence drain on the Delegate but can only last a limited amount of time. Warzones include Warzone Airspace, Warzone Africa, Warzone Europe, Warzone Asia, Warzone Australia, and Warzone Sandbox.
- World Assembly (WA): An institute of global governance in NationStates, similar to the United Nations in real-life.
- World Assembly Delegate: A nation who possess the largest number of WA endorsements in the region, thereby allowing it to represent the region in the World Assembly.
- World Factbook Entry (WFE): World Factbook Entry is an area visible at the top of a region's homepage which describes the region, etc. Typically, it would state members of the region's governing entity, links to an offsite forum, etc.
