Welcome to NationStates and the South Pacific!

Hello there, and congratulations on founding your very own nation! We know you’ve probably got your hands full governing millions of citizens, but we also wanted to introduce you to your region. A region is simply a community of nations, and every new nation like yourself starts out in one. If you’re reading this, that means you’re in the region of the South Pacific. That’s us — welcome!

But what can you do in a region? We’re glad you asked! Regions are a great way to get to know and play NationStates with other players. Every region has something different to offer, but here in the South Pacific, some of the things we’re known for include…

  • The oldest extant democracy on NationStates, running since 2003, with our elections, legislature, executive, and judiciary;

  • A regional military that’s one of the leading forces defending other regions from attack;

  • Vibrant roleplay universes, where players build up the lore of their country; and

  • A friendly and welcoming community of players just like you.

No matter what you’re interested in, we’re sure there’s something for you. The choice is yours!

If you have any questions, feel free to join our Linkregional forums or LinkDiscord server to chat with other members of our community. We'd be happy to help you!

Become a SWAN Knight
Quick, easy, and important.

Becoming a SWAN Knight is perhaps the quickest and easiest way to get involved, but it’s also one of the most important. Oh, and it also comes with a pretty badge that you can see here.

Tell me more! SWAN Knights are nations that have endorsed our Delegate and members of the Coral Guard. An endorsement is similar to a like button and gives them the power to protect our region. Keeping the numbers of endorsements held by the Delegate and Coral Guard high keeps our region more secure from potential attackers.

How to endorse a nation: You can find the Endorse button at the bottom of each nation’s page.

How do I become a SWAN Knight? You’ll need to join the World Assembly (NationStates’ version of the United Nation) and then do these steps:

Step 1: Endorse the Delegate

Step 2: Endorse the Coral Guard nations

Join the military
Protect innocent regions across NationStates.

Our military offers exciting, fast-paced gameplay and the chance to defend innocent regions and communities all across NationStates from unjustified attacks.

Tell me more! NationStates doesn’t have wars between nations, but it does have military gameplay with regions. Our military is a defender military, which means we protect innocent regions from the military forces that try to take them over simply because they enjoy it.
