Welcome to the New Pacific Order

New Pacific Order

We are currently in the process of completely overhauling all of our dispatches. As such, some of the information between new and old dispatches may be conflicting or inaccurate.

Welcome to The Pacific (TP) and the New Pacific Order (NPO)! Whether you are a newly founded nation or an experienced NationStates player looking to make the Pacifican community your home, there is something here for everyone. This introduction to life in the New Pacific Order will help you learn about our community, rules, and governance so you can discover everything we have to offer. NationStates is first and foremost a social game so to get the best experience it is of the utmost importance that you participate more than just logging in from time to time for answering issues.

If you have any questions about or suggestions for this guide, feel free to message East Durthang or any other leadership official.

Getting Started

Now on to business! There are four important first steps you should take when starting out. Click on each item to view more information and a detailed tutorial.

  1. Join the World Assembly and endorse East Durthang - Joining the World Assembly (WA) and endorsing East Durthang is the easiest way you can help the region out by strengthening regional security. WA membership also allows your nation to vote on international legislation.

  2. Join our Discord server - Here members chat about NationStates, share their artistic and culinary creations, play other games together, and much more. The majority of Pacifican activity can be found on our Discord server making it something you do not want to miss out on.

  3. Join our regional forum - The forum is home to most government activities and announcements and a broader range of roleplaying activities than can be found in the regional message board (RMB) roleplay. Here you can roleplay more than just nations and even organize brand new RPs if there is not one to your liking.

  4. Apply for citizenship - Becoming a citizen is key to participating in regional affairs. Citizenship grants you to access private forums and Discord channels and allows you to join positions to become involved in the regional government.

Becoming Involved

After settling in there is more you can do to become involved in the region and its community to get more enjoyment out of your time in NationStates.

  • Job Fair - We offer a wide variety of government departments available for citizens to join. Become a diplomat and represent the region. Write articles about NationStates and real life for our media publications. Enlist in the regional military to help protect our home and advance our interests abroad. Organize social events for fellow region members to participate in. Not only can you help improve the region by doing so, you can also make new friends along the way!

  • Roleplay - We offer a multitude of roleplaying opportunities between our active regional message board roleplaying and free form offsite forum based roleplaying, similar to the style of most Internet RP forums.

  • Trading Cards - Through our Trading Card Program, we hold regular NationStates trading card raffles, giveaways, and pull events. We also provide advice for getting into the trading card minigame as well as assistance with acquiring cards.

  • Events - We hold regular community events and activities including writing competitions, art competitions, trivia nights, gaming sessions, voice chats, and more.
