Benefits


WA Development Program


TL;DR: Get top spots and win shinies for your nation!
~ Distinguish yourself in exclusive regional censuses.
~ Win regional awards every month.
~ Complete your collection of lifetime achievements.

Participating in The North Pacific (TNP) WA Development Program (WADP) is a great way to win unique trophies for your nation. These come in two flavors: monthly awards and lifetime achievements. Monthly awards are published at the end of each month through special dispatches, and they go to TNP nations that have, during the month, excelled in various metrics relating to the WADP. We also publish special award volumes, in order to celebrate various occasions with one-of-a-kind awards. lifetime achievements are earned by TNP nations that reach various milestones relating to the WADP, most of which require long-term WADP-related activity throughout the nation's time in the region. While you can win the same monthly award multiple times, you can only win each lifetime achievement once.

Additionally, we maintain a series of regional censuses. These work very similarly to the world censuses of NationStates (NS), except that they are exclusive to TNP: every day, all WA nations in TNP are ranked, based on metrics related to the WADP. These censuses are directly tied to specific monthly awards and lifetime achievements. Therefore, you can use them to improve your chances of winning awards at the end of the month, or track your progress towards winning the next lifetime achievement. More broadly, you can use the censuses for friendly competition with your TNP neighbors, and to increase your nation's prestige by scoring top spots.

Last but not least, we gift a large number of trading cards to TNP nations that are active in the WADP, including everyone that wins monthly awards. If you are interested in increasing the value of your card collection, make sure to check out the WADP card lottery!

Awards, achievements, censuses, and card rewards are a small token of our appreciation for the hard work of all TNP nations that, by joining the World Assembly, becoming Keepers of the north, exchanging WA endorsements, and voting on WA resolutions, make our region more powerful, secure, and exciting. Thanks a lot!

Note that the Delegate and members of the Security Council are excluded from the monthly awards, and members of the North Pacific Army are excluded from the monthly awards, lifetime achievements, and regional censuses.

I won something! What do I do now?

Congratulations! Now it's time to show off. A great way to do so is by creating a dispatch from your nation especially for showcasing your hard-earned awards and achievements. Every time a new award volume is published, or every time you win a new achievement, you can update your dispatch to include your new trophies, then boast about it on the Regional Message Board (always with measure of course) in order to collect approvals ("upvotes") and invite friendly competition.

If you do not have much experience making dispatches, you can read here about the fundamentals and look here for a basic template to get you started. Of course, you do not actually have to format your awards dispatch like this template. Let your imagination run wild!

In addition to the above, if you have an account on the Linkregional forum, you should make sure to display your WADP awards and achievements in your signature, for all your regionmates to admire.
