If you're reading this, you're probably new to the region of Lorania. If so, then you have just joined a very active and friendly region, which will be very accepting of you, whether you're new to this game or just the region.
First of all, you are probably receiving loads of annoying telegrams from other regions trying to recruit you. I recommend turning these off as soon as possible. To do this click on the Telegrams button at the top of the page. Then click on Preferences, which is just above the telegrams you've received. Finally, click on the Block All button next to Recruitment. Now you won't be bothered by recruitment telegrams anymore.
The next thing you should do is join the WA. This can be done by adding an email address on the settings page, then go to the World Assembly page and click Apply to Join. You will be sent an email asking you to confirm that you're joining the World Assembly. Click the link in the email, then click the confirm button. NationStates won't ever use your email beyond joining the WA, password resets and possibly if your nation might be deleted due to inactivity. They won't send you constant spam, or give your email away to any third-parties.
Please Note: You can only have one nation in the WA at any one time. So if you want to create a second nation for any reason, you cannot join the World Assembly on that nation.
Next I suggest say hello to us on our Regional Message Board, or RMB for short. Simply click on this button: Lorania, or on the 'Lorania' button at the side of the page, then scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find a box, which you can type a message in. I recommend you simply introduce yourself, and ask any questions you have about the region or the game in general. You will probably get a response sooner or later from one of us, usually within a few hours at most, or even within a few minutes. Lorania doesn't have a discord or a forum for various reasons, so don't worry about missing out on anything!
If you've joined the WA, then please endorse our delegate (Sail Nation). Every endorsement allows the region to have more voting power in the World Assembly.
Finally, there is much more to do in this game than just answering issues; you can chat with us on the RMB about all sorts of things, you can create dispatches and factbooks about your nation, you can vote in the World Assembly and you can take part in regional activities. Once you've become a citizen you can vote and stand in elections. There are also some minigames on this website, such as Trading Cards and Challenge.
