A dignified resting place for former nations.
All nations are initially Active. If they do nothing for
28 days, they cease to exist, vanishing
from the world to become a Former Nation. Former nations
(also sometimes called "ex-nations") can return to the world
by simply logging in.
Unless it was particularly large or notable, if a Former Nation remains in that state for several years, its name becomes available for reuse, which then allows a new nation to be created with the same name. If this occurs, the Former Nation becomes Ancient and cannot be restored.
