Why should I become a Citizen?
By becoming a Citizen, you open yourself up to a number of new opportunities. Citizens of The North Pacific are able to vote in elections, hold public office, debate and vote on legislature, and more!
What is the difference between a Citizen and a Resident?
Any nation that resides in The North Pacific is considered a Resident. Residents can still get involved on the forum and in some parts of the government (mainly the the Executive Staff and North Pacific Army), but they cannot participate in the legislative process or elections.
Citizens are essentially Residents that have successfully passed the Citizenship application process. This allows them to participate in the Regional Assembly and in public office.
Who is eligible to become a Citizen?
In order to apply for Citizenship, you must meet the following requirements:
You must have a nation in The North Pacific.
You must not have more than one account on the regional forum (Administrators may grant exemptions under special circumstances).
You must not use a proxy server.
You must not pose a threat to regional security, as determined by the Vice Delegate.
How do I apply?
To apply, follow these steps:
Step 1: Create an account on our regional forum.
Step 2: Go to the Citizenship Application thread.
Step 3: Post the following oath in the application thread:
Nation: [INSERT YOUR TNP NATION]
I pledge loyalty to The North Pacific, obedience to her laws, and responsible action as a member of her society. I pledge to only register one nation to vote in The North Pacific. I pledge that no nation under my control will wage war against the North Pacific. I understand that if I break this oath I may permanently lose my voting privileges. In this manner, I petition the Speaker for citizenship in The North Pacific.
Step 4: Check back periodically on the status of your application. (Note: The application process requires 3 separate checks and can take up to 2 weeks. Please be patient.)
Step 5: Once you are granted citizenship, go participate in our government!
What if I have questions along the way?
You can contact Speaker of the Regional Assembly Madjack or any of their deputies if you have questions.
