Day 5 of Protests in Jabiyah, End of Second Lisvonyan Conflict
Although protests outside the embassy in Vultesia have peaked since yesterday's height of thirty thousand protesters, activists continue to occupy the streets surrounding the Vultesian Embassy, carefully cordoned off by police. Many municipalities across Gassasinia have hung a rainbow flag outside their town halls in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community.

With the end of the war in Lisvonya over, the flags of the the united nations who fought against Shauntellerine aggression have been hung up outside the House of Representatives, below the Gassasinian flag. The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Education and the Ministry of Labour has asked for schools and places of business across the country to observe a moment of silence so that we may reflect on those slain during the conflict.

The Royal Gassasinian Legion will be holding a public fundraiser to help settle returning Gassasinian Army personnel back home, and to support those injured during the conflict. Readers are asked to consider reflecting how the Gassasinian Defence Force protects us all not just against foreign aggression but from disasters of all kind, and how the personnel of the Gassasinian Defence Force put their own lives on the line to protect the innocent.

The Royal Gassasinian Legion will be holding a public fundraiser to help settle returning Gassasinian Army personnel back home, and to support those injured during the conflict.

(!) GRT is a state media company of the Gassasinian government.

Channel 8
Hi, im Maria Holt from Channel 8, the popular representation minister Mikael Hònistè died in a car accident, the government will make elections to replace the rappresentative minister. The LGBT community want to make legal the gay marriage, but the far-left and conservative organizations opposed to the request. The queen Yasmine gived funds to the ministry of the Public Health to buy new equipment and hire doctors and nurses. For now is all, from channel 8 is all

Zero Hour, Araana, Guurissi Archduchy, 3:30 AM
Air rushed through and around his face. Elghi Zazan whipped his head around, ensuring he was staying in formation with his fellow paratroopers. The lights of Araana shone below, unaware of the assault facing them. Nearly 200 Neuew airborne were dropping on the city center, the beginnings of what was hoped to become an attack to turn the war, not repeating the mistakes of Operation Null and Void. However, as a simple Pioneer, Elghi didn't worry about any of this. He just wanted to survive until midnight, a worry he didn't doubt plagued the minds of his fellows. Suddenly, sirens below began whining, and a bright light lifted off from the ground. Whizzing past the paratroopers, it flew up and up, until striking what could only be assumed to have been one of the transport aircraft. Apparently a HALO jump hadn't been enough to keep them completely stealthy. "1000 meters!" shouted his commander. As he began counting down the distance to their deployment altitude, his grip tightened around the parachute release. "Open!" shouted the commander. At once, the sky was filled with parachutes, no doubt revealing to any curious Guurissi that this wasn't a bombing raid. Below them, cars could be seen stopping, no doubt puzzled by the sight. No flak fire was present and looking off into the distance, hostile forces couldn't be found rushing to the scene. Elghi smiled, they had caught the traitors completely off-guard. Maybe he would see tomorrow.

LGBQT+ Protests - Day 1
Yesterday, LGBQT+ protests to force Bakterland Governor Stephen Preiszner to resign occurred in the capital city of Hindenburg and the Bakterland province's capital of Spreitenhurn. While the protests in Hindenburg were mostly peaceful, less could be said about the ones in Spreitenhurn. The protests started out in Spreienhurn Central Park, and were mostly peaceful, until Spreienhurn Stadtpolizei in riot gear began to aggressively push the protesters out of the Northern sections of the park. This unexpected and unexplainable push led to 22 of the LGBQT+ protesters needing to be sent to a hospital due to injuries received from the push, with an estimated amount of over 100 more with minor injuries. This has led to outrage from the public and Congress, with Tessa Sachs, Congresswoman for Hindenburg Island, saying "The actions of the Spreienhurn Stadtpolizei today are abhorrent, and against everything this fine Republic stands for." In an attempt to justify itself, the Spreienhurn Stadtpolizei have baselessly claimed on the social media site Plakatwand that the protesters "Were obstructing traffic flow on streets around the Northern edges of Spreienhurn Central Park." Regardless, protests in the city of Spreienhurn are far from over, with the LGBQT+ protesters coming back for a second day and a counterprotest forming in the city.

Raketenmann and Uranbrüder modify Strategic Partnership to include PPC
Yesterday, around 2:00 PM, local time, Raketenmann Electric Company and Uranbrüder Mining Company have declared in a joint statement that they have modified their Strategic Partnership together to include a third member, Pluto's Plutonium Corporation. This company, often abbreviated to PPC, specializes in the storage, transportation, and reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel, along with the storage and transportation of Plutonium. The inclusion of PPC into this partnership will unboutly see the company supply the Hindenburgraketenmann Nuclear Power Plant with Plutonium for Nuclear Fission. However, some experts suspect this recent spat of partnerships will see Raketenmann Electirc Co. attempt to build another nuclear power plant somewhere in Junterland.

Well you don't need to join the Discord, but if you're 12, I understand and you cannot. But you can telegram Foxomexra to get a spot on the map.

I'd appreciate if you did.

I've seen what I understand to be the majority of the full conversation, and haven't seen them calling you a b*tch once, or in fact, doing much other than asking for you to back off, trying answer your questions and repeatedly expressing discomfort.

I'd rather not see a crap slinging match based around yourself and an ex-nation here on the RMB. Nor am I particularly interested in our main on site resource being used as a 'he said she said' especially when only half of that equation is even in the region.

Hadian is no longer part of this region, or the offsite Anterian community, filling up Tg inboxes is irrelevant, unproductive and if they don't want it, grounds for moderator action. I'd like this to be the end of the matter for the regional message board.

If he did, then we suggest you file a GHR. That said, we have reviewed the TGs in question and discovered enough to issue you a warning for harassment.

In recent polling, it seems the Sons and the NNC rival each other for popularity in the Republic. With this news, the Liberal Faction and the Faction of the People are uniting into the Faction for Democracy, and with a majority of seats in the Council, Head Minister Assinya Cartyen is still Head Minister. In other news, tonight is the night for the March 2021 Elections in Nicersdah. Here are the parties:

The Faction for Democracy is a new party formed as the merger of the Liberals and the FotP. They seek to continue a partnership with Vultesia, to make more global alliances, and to take down the Sons and restore the peace in southern Nicersdah with the end of internal terrorism. They advocate for a controlled economic liberalism, with a largely free market with a $4/hr minimum wage, 30-60 hour work week, and one paid day off a month. Socially, they advocate for the equal rights of all citizens and for the acceptance of immigration into Nicersdah, though some are more conservative on these stances. (polling at 41%, Head Minister Assinya Cartyen)

The National Faction is an old party with 5 seats currently in the council. They seek to end the partnership with Vultesia, and many other countries Nicersdah has worked with, and come to a peaceful conclusion of the new conflict with the Sons with negotiations and have pretty inconclusive views on Democracy. Economically, they believe in a protectionist free market with strong ties between government and corporate leaders. Socially, they believe that the people of Nicersdah are gifted by the gods and are skeptical of immigration and foreign ideals such as liberalism and democracy. They have very conservative social values. (polling at 33%, Former Minister for War Calmueri Trivano)

Other smaller factions exist, such as:

The Socialist Faction (self explanatory)

Conservative Faction (FoD views on Vultesia and the Sons and National's social views, and the old Liberal market values)

The Wedding Party (Joke party that runs on making Hadian (a fake island in a Nicersdahian comic series that is absurdly and unrealistically racist and fascistic) the example for civil rights, giving everyone a government subsidized Bakyern raccoon, and asking Latvia and Saaremaa for a time machine. Interestingly, they have reached 5% of the vote in some polls, and are actually competitive in their one district)

And more. Polling for each district will come in the next few hours

Wellsenfaile wrote:Hello and welcome to the wonderful region of Anteria, where crimes on protesters are common and where there is always a debate going on. I hope you guys will have a great time here. Pls read the Roleplay guide and if you have any questions ask me or the directors. :)


Welcome to Anteria, the second planet in the Tendor System, home to humanity and all their beautiful nations!

The Anterian roleplay is a modern tech world completely unrelated to Earth. That means that the roleplay takes place in the current year; 2021, and any real-life countries, as well as the Earth, Solar System, Milky Way, etc simply don't exist. But how does it work?


First things first

    - The No. 1 rule in roleplay and worldbuilding is consent. So before you go and declare war on other countries, you need to understand that in order to include other countries into your roleplay, worldbuilding and lore, you have to get their permission to do so! That's why Anterian roleplay isn't just only acting and reacting, but often creating and discussing scenarios and events together with other members. Of course, foreign policy that includes other nations like for example travel bans, condemnations, or embargoes, which don't necessarily have to directly harm or generally affect the nation, are an exception.

    - Since this is a realtime RP in 2021, please stay realistic, especially when worldbuilding and roleplaying military. If you don’t know what is realistic and what’s not, just ask the Director of Roleplay (DoRP), a Councilor, or someone with enough knowledge to advise you. 

    - In order for roleplay-posts to be canon, they have to be posted on the Regional Message Board (RMB), even if you already posted it in #today-in-anteria on the regional Discord!


How does one start roleplaying?

That is fairly simple. Whenever a new nation joins the roleplay, everyone acts like they have always existed. That way people are free to create their lore as they wish. If you don't know what to post or want to contact other roleplayers on a simpler way than having to write telegrams, there are several channels on our regional LinkDiscord server dedicated to roleplay and worldbuilding, which is why I highly recommend joining it!

On the other side, whenever a nation leaves the roleplay, may it be due to inactivity and CTEing (Nations "cease to exist" after 28/60 days of inactivity on NationStates, depending on if they are on Vacation Mode or not), leaving Anteria, or the player changing their nation in the roleplay, everyone acts as if the nation never existed in the first place.

If you want to add some spice to your worldbuilding, you can also create a wikipedia-like article about your nation on a website called LinkIIWiki. Don’t know how it works or how to start? Just ask Registrars or people with knowledge for help and take a look in #wiki-requests on Discord. We already have lots of articles, including one about LinkAnteria itself!

(More information to war will be added in some days)

The Map

Of course, roleplaying and worldbuilding without having an idea of where nations are is almost impossible. That is why we maintain a map of Anteria. In order to get a spot on the map, you have to claim the area you want your nation to be. You can do that by either downloading it or taking a screenshot (The latest map is linked on Anteria's World Factbook Entry, as well as in the #map-submissions channel on Discord), marking your claim (make sure it is reasonably sized and consider other maps like climate, tropical storms, etc.), and sending the claim to the Director of Cartography, Foxomexra, either by sending a telegram or posting the claim in #map-submissions on Discord.

When you have claimed a spot, your nation will be added in the next map update, which is every Wednesday and Saturday

White spots on the map are unclaimed land. It is complicated on how much one can interact with it, as there neither a void, nor complete anarchy with no governing structure, but rather some kind of governments noone can roleplay with, since there is no player to roleplay with. That also makes expansion of territory into unclaimed land for roleplay purposes a complicated topic, but not an impossible one. If you have something like that in mind for a roleplay idea, just talk with the Director of Cartography or Roleplay.

Need more information? Just read the Map Guide


The essentials of your worldbuillding

What you definitely need are the population and GDP of your country. Those are one of the most defining factors of how your country is gonna look like. Since NationStates-stats are highly unrealistic, you will have to come up with your own. For that I recommend the following:

    1. Ask the cartographer Foxomexra about the size of your claim.
    2. Settle on a population density, taking climate and other stuff into account.
    3. Calculate your Population (Pop. Density × Size)
    4. Settle on a GDP per capita (if you plan on being as wealthy as Western/European nations, a 20,000-50,000 ACU range is recommended, 50,000 ACU is really wealthy, and countries even wealthier than that are usually smaller in population, like Switzerland, Qatar, Norway, etc.)
    5. Calculate your GDP (GDP per capita × Population)

For population density and GDP per capita, I suggest taking real-life countries as a reference. If you are wondering what “ACU” is, it’s an abbreviation for “Anterian Currency Unit”. Though it’s not a currency but only a unit of measurement for international trade. 1 ACU is 1 USD.


Any other questions? Send a telegram to the DoRP New Sebronia, or write a message to seb#7878 on Discord! Have fun and enjoy your stay!
