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.

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's 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 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 Bran Astor 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, Bran Astor. Hes 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, Bran Astor, the Guardians, Ministers, Deputy Ministers, and staff. All positions are appointed by the Delegate based on merit except for the Deputy Ministers, who are elected by the regional legislature, 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 four government ministries to get more involved!

TWP Ministries and other volunteer opportunities

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 Foreign Affairs (FA) is the West Pacifics 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!

To apply, send a Discord message to the current Minister, Dilber, at @Dilber#4438!

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, overseeing Regional Guides, 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 Ministry of Cultural Affairs (CA) is tasked with developing regional branding, organizing festivals and roleplay events, and creating a greater sense of enjoyment outside basic game tasks. Its not all fun and games, though, it requires being active in the region and understanding the wants and needs of players. Cultural Affairs is great for people who are passionate and able to work both independently and collaboratively, all with a sense of fun!

LinkApply here!

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!

To enroll, Linkjoin the TWP Discord server and leave a message in the #enroll_at_utwp channel!

The West Pacifican 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!

Regional Message Board Etiquette


Most of these rules are common sense and basic courtesy, so for everyone's enjoyment of the RMB, please follow them.

  1. This is a worldwide game played in people's spare time. Understand that your post might not get a response in a timely fashion.

  2. Try to keep the language to standard English whenever possible. Not everyone has English as their primary language.

  3. If you must use a language other than English, you must provide an English translation for your fellow regionmates.

  4. The RMB is not a personal chat room. Don't expect a full conversation to happen (we have Discord for that).

  5. Always be courteous and respectful to your fellow players.

  6. New nations who say "hello" for the first time should have their greetings answered in a friendly manner.

  7. Help your fellow players when they have questions.

  8. If you ask a question and are directed to look it up somewhere, look it up where they told you to go. Don't be mad at the person helping you for not writing a full page, detailed answer.

  9. If things get heated, step away from the keyboard.

  10. Any topic or subject (within game rules) is allowed.

  11. Real world political topics (except for special circumstances) should go to the dedicated Discord channel, not the RMB.

  12. Role playing should go to the dedicated areas on the Forum or Discord.

  13. The following is never allowed:

    • Spamming / trolling / flaming / flame-baiting and the like.

    • Harassment in any form.

    • Rewording or otherwise changing a quote. -snip- is acceptable, any other changes are not.

    • Recruiting for another region.

    • Asking for endorsements (Delegate and Guardians are exempt).

    • Trying to incite / cause strife.

    • Posting in ALL CAPS. This is considered shouting and spam. Learn the formatting codes to get your point across.

    • ASCII art (except by a couple of long-time pre-approved users)

    • Large emoticons. :-) :-p and similar ones are fine. Ones that look like ASCII art or like this \_(ツ)_/ are not allowed.

    • Multiple consecutive posts are considered spam (unless a reasonable amount of time has passed). Exceptions to this are on special days like Karaoke Friday.

    • Useless comments that are intended to get attention and not move the conversation along.

  14. The following is allowed occasionally:

    • Shortened words/phrases or initials. Phrases like "sup" or "IIRC".

    • Unicode (fancy-styled) fonts. Remember that they don't display properly on mobile clients.

    • Emoji in a message. Keep this to no more than one per post please.

  15. Most importantly: Treat others with courtesy and respect.


Remember, the Delegate and Guardians have final say on what is and isn't acceptable.
