Welcome to The North Pacific!
Welcome to The North Pacific (TNP)! You might be a new nation to the game or in TNP, and you don't really know what is going on or where to start. Or you may be an experienced member but have several questions regarding some of the activities going on. Whatever the case, we have put together this handbook that you can use to familiarize yourself with the game and TNP, and to make the most out of your time in NationStates (NS).
The handbook has a number of different sections. The index below will help you navigate them. If you have any questions not answered in this handbook, feel free to send a telegram to Delegate Prydania, Minister of Home Affairs Nimarya, or any of the Gameside Advocates and Mentors. They will be glad to help! Additionally, we are always looking to improve this handbook, so let us now if you think something should be added or changed.
This section covers the very first items you should check off as a newcomer to the game and TNP.
Why you should be in TNP: Selecting a region for your nation is one of the most important decisions you will make in the game. We hope you will make TNP your home, and this link explains why. If you have already decided to stay here, that's great!
Join the regional forum: The forum is where most government and roleplay activities take place. Registering an account is very easy. You should get yourself an account so that you can check out what's going on and join in on the fun.
Join our regional chat: Our Discord server is where our members hang out and chat about the game and real life subjects. You can join and introduce yourself to our community. Additionally, if you have any questions, asking on Discord is the fastest way to get help.
Apply for citizenship: Citizenship is your ticket to TNP. As a citizen, you can vote to elect our Delegate and other government officials, hold them accountable, and even run for these positions yourself. All you need to apply is a nation in TNP and an account on the forum.
Ways to Get Involved
Now that you have cleared the basics, you must be looking for things to do. Below are some of the opportunities TNP offers.
Get involved in the government: There are many ways to get involved in the government straight away after joining TNP. You can write the regional laws in the Regional Assembly. You can take part in the day-to-day running of the region in the Executive Staff. Or, you can protect TNP at home and abroad in the North Pacific Army.
Get involved in the World Assembly: Joining the World Assembly (WA) is one of the best ways to empower your nation, especially in TNP. Thanks to our WA Development Program, as a WA member you can determine international laws, have one of the highest endorsement counts in the entire game, and even win awards!
Get involved in RolePlay: We have not one, but two vibrant RolePlay (RP) universes, Eras and Strangereal. Each comes with its own map, chronology, and physics laws. If you commit to being active in RP, you can claim a spot in either universe's map, and join others in weaving stories about your nation and its role in the world.
Get involved in trading cards: Our regional cards guild provides many resources you can take advantage of to increase the value of your deck, including several offerings of free cards. As a member of the guild, you can also participate in many other cards-related activities, including themed collections, pull events, and regular publications.
Through our regional nation, The Northern Light, we post a number of regular regional publications. You can follow them to stay up to speed with what's going on in TNP.
The Northern Lights: Produced by the Ministry of Communications, this is our regional newspaper. It includes both general news and op-ed articles about various aspects of TNP and NS.
The North Star: Produced by the Ministry of Communications, The North Star informs TNPers of current internal matters and government activities.
The Roleplay Reel: Produced by the Ministry of Communications, The Roleplay Reel showcases roleplay works by members of TNP's two RP communities.

Embassy—Bala Mantre and Yohannes
Speaker Parliament House
“To the Members and Elected Collegians of the Realm in this present Parliament assembled, I am pleased to welcome the new ambassador of Bala Mantre His Excellency Mr Saasd Asad. I have received the letter of credence appointing His Excellency as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of The Roman Islamic Sultannete of Bala Mantre to the Realm of Yohannes.”
“We are proud to table the Amity and Friendship Between Bala Mantre and Yohannes Bill this morning. I support the bill because it will provide us with an important legislative framework for future reduction in tariffs with Bala Mantre. The bill will also rationalise our current approach to trade in industrial raw materials with Bala Mantre and its major trade partners in the North Pacific.”
“The Amity and Friendship Between Bala Mantre and Yohannes Bill will reduce existing barriers and limitations on trade and capital for hard-working ‘mum and dad’ business owners from Yohannes and those influential Mantrean commodity exporters already based in Yohannes—that is, this bill is only the beginning of something much bigger for our two-way trade with Bala Mantre.”
—@SpeakerRyan to the Realm Parliament.

You should still do all of the above! Why? As you may know, The North Pacific is currently ranked #2 in the World for average number of endorsements.
Nobody likes being second, and we are hoping to bring The North Pacific to the #1 spot. This will only be possible through coordinated community effort, and we hope that this event will help facilitate exactly that.
Achieving the first place in the world rankings requires that we both increase the total number of WA nations in the region,and that each WA nation gives out at least an extra 100 endorsements to other WA nations. You can contribute to the community effort by joining the WA if you are not already a member, endorsing as many other WA nations as you can, and encouraging other nations to do the same. With your help, we can make our region the #1 region in the world!
Through cooperation and a little bit of hard work, we hope to reach our regional goals by the end of this event. And as a reward for all this work, nations that actively participate in this event will win a large variety of awards! So get to it - join the WA, and start exchanging endorsements right away!
How long is this event running?
Endorse Your Heart Out! will run for two weeks, starting on February 11th and concluding on February 25th. Update: The event has been extended and will conclude on February 29th.
For this event, we have two sets of regional goals, which together will help us reach our ultimate goal of making The North Pacific #1 in the world rankings for average number of endorsements.
The first set of regional goals aim to increase the total number of endorsements exchanged within The North Pacific.
Reach 270,000 endorsements
Reach 280,000 endorsements
Reach 290,000 endorsements
Reach 300,000 endorsements
Reach 310,000 endorsements
Reach 320,000 endorsements
Reach 330,000 endorsements (this will bring us to #1 in the world rankings)
Reach 340,000 endorsements (this will help us create a buffer in the world rankings)
The second set of regional goals aims to increase the total number of WA nations in The North Pacific.
Reach 1,425 WA nations
Reach 1,450 WA nations
Reach 1,475 WA nations
Reach 1,500 WA nations
Reach 1,525 WA nations
Reach 1,550 WA nations
Reach 1,575 WA nations
Reach 1,600 WA nations
Are we any close to achieving these goals?
We will be periodically provide progress updates through posts on the regional message board, as well as telegrams to all nations in The North Pacific. In the meantime, you can track our progress towards the regional goals using the graphs below that update autocally every day. (You can click the images for interactive versions of these graphs.)
You help make our region safer and stronger! But that's not all: We have two sets of incentives to further motivate everyone to help us meet our regional goals.
First, by actively participating in this event, you can win some of the most valuble NationStates trading cards for free!
~ At the end of the event, we will run a single-day lottery awarding to distribute a large number of legendary cards (10 cards per achieved regional goal, for a maximum of 160 cards if all goals are achieved) to winners selected from among all WA nations in TNP that won an individual prize during the event.
~ At the end of the event, we will gift an epic card to each WA in TNP nation that won an individual prize during the event.
