Q: Eli why did you vote against the condemnation of Ever Wandering Souls?

A: Because only an idiot would vote for a condemnation from a bunch of self satisfied backslapping wanna be's. In fact the Security Council should be abolished. Souls should go crush their egg sucking regions.

Huomio (styled Huomio!) is a social media service created by Kristjin Kevalich, Andreuz Wadalaiy and Faloe Mirosako of Pantheon Inc. In this app, you can share and react to different videos online. Announcement of the app came in on May 4th, 2006. Beta testing started September 3rd, 2007 (beta testing was originally gonna be on August 3rd, but the Great Matchaiwan Conflict was occurring, and the fighting came to their area). The app was fully released on March 18th, 2008, just in time for Innovation Day. Since then, over 150 million people have been using the app, and it is considered one of the best apps in Treciene.

Huomio is the Finnish word for Attention, in which the app alerts you of news and briefings every day. You can follow people, make friends and play games to create progress. The name Huomio came from Kevalich, who was of Finnish Heritage. The app's quote is "Connecting Everyone to Create Anything", which implies that the app should attract people to post and get popular while inspiring people to get popular, in which they also inspire people to get popular, and so on. The headquarters of Huomio is in Crowntelevon, the capital of Treciene. Sadly, Pantheon Inc. filed for Chapter 10 Bankruptcy on February 19, 2014 after some controversy in the app. Despite This, Kevalich, Wadalaiy and Mirosako created a new corporation, Entryville, and this started the golden age for Huomio. Huomio still thrives today.

In 2020, Huomio was made available to the citizens of Badjurstan, After this, the Badjur language site Lingo-Lango had partnered with Huomio, so new Badjur language lessons can be learned. SCP Faudation uses the service, and strives to own the company. Americaaaa also uses the service. Sadly, Huomio is banned in many countries, like New Ryansville and Greater Northern Pokemon Reich.

I am pretty sure a haiku has to be something involving nature and/or love.

Hello and Welcome to The West Pacific!

Congratulations! Your nation was founded in NationStates' premier meritocracy! In this guide you'll find all you need to navigate this game and join our community here in the West Pacific.

TWP Quick Links: The West Pacific - LinkForums - LinkDiscord - Master Dispatch

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 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 General Assembly 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 Dilber 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, Dilber. 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, Dilber, the Guardians, Ministers, Deputy Ministers, and staff. All positions are appointed by the Delegate based on merit except for the Speaker of the Hall and the Hall of Nations Guardians, who are elected by the members of 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 government ministries to get more involved!

TWP Ministries and other volunteer opportunities

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (FA) is the West Pacificís diplomatic corps. This ministry develops relations, organizes interregional events and helps spread our culture. You will have the opportunity to interact with other nations on a regular basis while helping advance West Pacifican interests abroad. It is always looking for new ambassadors, so become one today!

In order to apply, send a Discord message to one of the current Ministers, Giovanniland or Fuentana, at @Giovanniland#8272 or @Fuentana#3423!

The West Pacific Armed Forces (TWPAF) is a sovereign military that offers Invader and Defender operations for regions by using techniques called raiding mechanics to take over other regions. For front line action, you usually need to be available at "major update" (12:00 AM EST) or "minor update" (12:00 PM EST). But if you can't be online at updates, you can join the Reapers division which supports occupations. Check out this dispatch to learn more about raiding mechanics, operations and ranks.

LinkApply here!

The Ministry of World Assembly and Recruitment (WAR) is in charge of recruiting residential nations to the World Assembly, bringing new endorsements to the Delegate, developing authorship of GA and SC resolutions, and enforcing the endorsement cap. WAR is a great fit for those that like to help strengthen the region, help new nations and support the Delegacy.

LinkApply here!

The Cultural Trust is the home of regional culture. It's not a ministry, but rather a part of the region in which anyone interested in the Trust's communities can join! The Trust is divided into five communities at the moment, namely Roleplay Community, Card Club, Nomic Enclosure, Fine Arts Society and the News Group. People who are passionate and able to work both independently and collaboratively will surely like the Cultural Trust!

LinkApply for Hall of Nations citizenship and check the Cultural Commons channel for more information on each community!

The Western Post is the official newspaper of The West Pacific. We report on a wide range of topics, from serious to lighthearted and everything in between. The paper publishes once a month every Friday, and is always looking for writers and artists to fill the pages!

LinkApply here!

The Regional Guides are a group of nations that welcome new players into getting involved in the West Pacific! Additionally, they are also tasked with other activities such as encouraging regional activity, planning the daily Today in the West posts, organizing festivals, and creating a greater sense of enjoyment outside basic game tasks. It's a gateway into getting to higher positions in the region, so be sure to join if you have some understanding of how NationStates and our region works.

In order to apply, send a Discord message to Fuentana or Giovanniland, at @Fuentana#3423 or @Giovanniland#8272!

The University of the West Pacific (UTWP) is the premier and only institute in the West Pacific with a focus on developing newer nations into the regional leaders of tomorrow. In four hands-on courses, you will work with others to learn more about every ministry and find your path in the West Pacific. Enroll today, and be placed in the next cohort!

LinkJoin the TWP Discord server and leave a message in the #enroll_at_utwp channel in order to enroll!
