Hello again all,
The ball is well and truly rolling. In two days, the election process will begin. That also means that there is a two-four day deadline for map submissions and thus voting rights.
Thus far, these states have no submission:
We need 13 states to form the government minimum, so it would be very, very helpful if people got on board. If you know anyone from past regions (particularly you Abunya) that would enjoy a new state in a new dynamic, get them on board, otherwise I'll get recruiting...
Big news, it's here.
The map is done.
Find it on the discord, which will also be linked via the region information page. I still have no information from the states listed yesterday, so I will begin a recruitment drive, hoping for success.
Over the coming eternity, I will be releasing other maps of various data, including (in descending order of how long it will take altitude (likely with brute force contour lines, not the prettiest, but also not life-consuming), environment (biome), culture, rivers, other misc maps (such as a general map of republics and monarchies), and finally and most immediate, electorates.
Electorates will be coming immediately. This is totally dependent on reaching the 'magic 13' to form government.
I will also happily cartograph what I'll call 'detail maps' which can contain railways, roads, airports, cities etc. and compile them onto the world map. I will also make military maps if needed for you (this could be good fun in a roleplay war, putting positioning into the mix), however if you're a monarchy, you probably don't want me getting you troop locations (until we figure out satellites, which will come with time) so the feasibility of this is in reality not so good. Which is fine, it shouldn't inhibit roleplay and the political dynamic.
Names are put on the current map, and this can sometimes obscure borders, coasts and geography, do not panic, a nameless version will also be made.
Otherwise, get some history together for after the election, and if not on the map, be there.
Finally, be active over the next week as blitzes of campaigning begin and ballots go out.

I have decided to make an adjustment to the constitution, reducing the seats in the Hall of Representatives to five. This does a few things.
1. It ensures at least some of the seats will have more than two states in them
2. It means elections can actually happen and lowers the magic number to 11
Given the recent change, voting will begin ASAP. You will have ballots appear in your telegrams, please return them, filled in, and promptly, within 5 days ideally. Thank you all.
Before this occurs, I need to establish who is running for what. A map of electoral borders will be uploaded soon, so please check it out and consider running for a spot in the government. Then please telegram me what position you are running for. keep in mind what positions you can run for in conjunction (ministers can combine with members of the chambers, for example) and telegram all that you're running for to me.
I'll get the ball rolling by saying that Pelecanus is running for the Hall of Representatives, Delegate, Foreign Affairs Minister, Security Minister and Office of Media. I don't really want to win all of this. Run against me. Please. (I will be closing this bit off on 09/04/18 Australian time)

If all my information is correct today will be the last day to get registered for the upcoming elections. I would therefore like to wish all participants good luck. In addition, I would like to say to all who are still undecided, there is nothing to lose, you should run for election. Syvat needs a lot of voices to become a big and strong region and you could be part of our effort to achieve that.
Sincerely, Daniel Trittel Supreme Chairman of Tetrian.
I am very sorry I didn't noticed the poll.
Oh no, it's fine, just wanted you to fill it out
Firstly, congratulations on the election.
Secondly, the Svyat Map file totally corrupted. Fortunately, all this means is that the layers have been scattered to different documents (that I had saved as pngs). This really just means some retracing when it comes to updates. All that is lost is the images I used to derive some coastlines. Sincere apologies for this, but fortunately the culture, electoral and environmental maps all exist separately. The culture map will be reincorporated from scratch and electoral lines traced. Should be fine.
Hello again all.
The map has been further consolidated and now has cultures and electoral borders reintegrated. (Environment will stay separate as it will never be updated really). Over time I will do repairs to re-establish a base layer with no states for use as national maps.
EDIT: Land borders restored (has to do as best as I could for those borders under names, but they are 95% plus accurate to before, maybe 10px are wrong max (this was only in a few spots where names were over water).
Hey i was not notified about the poll
It was a long time ago, and I assumed that people would perhaps check the region page every now and then and you'dve seen it.
Hello again all,
Just a heads up that I've done a map update, this brings me to three points;
Secondly, a friendly reminder that the government has unfilled positions. The electorates have been slightly shifted due to the removal and addition of a few states, but there is still 5 unfilled positions in the core of the government. Volunteering gets you in automatically at this point.
Thirdly, get posting in the summit forum! Day two will end soon, and nothing has come to fruition, and only continent names have been discussed.
Hope to see you all around,
Welcome to all new states, feel free to message me and get involved, hope you enjoy it around here. Please do get involved with roleplay. The first step is getting on the map, see the Constitution and Beginner's Guide for more information regarding this process.
Thank you for your support for electing me as the security officer of Svyat
Thank you @Pelecanus and @Tetrian
That's... not the case, Emmeria is the Minister of Security. Can I help you in any way?
i need to be the security min
