Arctic Regional Message Board
Time for a bit of fun. What made you folks decide to have Arctic or northern themed nations?
I may have said this before at times, after a while in nationstates I thought I would try to start a 'name' or known world region just passing a bit of time, I searched for regions like England,America,Australia then I started looking alphabetically and came across Arctic, it was about to cease to exist, when it did I refounded, there was a TV program on at the time called Kingdom of the Ice Bear, I brought in a spare nation as a resident and expected Arctic to die out as I got tired of logging in to my lone nation.
I can't remember who was the first to come but Arctic took on a life of its own, I have really only been custodian and provided longevity Arctic is its member nations who have run it from the outset, Thanks to you all.
Mine's not Arctic themed, but I moved here, because after my old region - The Flying Squadron - fell apart, Arctic's recruitment TG was the first one I saw, and so I moved here. I've been here ever since. Not the most personal reason, I know, but it's the truth. The only theme I have for my country is "What if a benevolent dictator version of me ran my real life country?".
I've been in and out of Arctic - It's been pretty much the only region I've stuck with long-term, though I've had a few nations here as some die out when I'm inactive for long periods. This is my current, and most lasting, and I intend on keeping it that way!
Scandinavia's quite interesting IRL so I've managed to shape my nation pretty well to the temperatures here - Thought it would be a bit of a niche next to other regions, and it certainly is. The community's always been super nice too, not too many people, not too few. :)
For me, I've travelled around Norway and Finland and loved it. And I enjoy films set it areas that are frontiers or undifined areas. I like how extreme cold and challenging terrain forces people to band together. Too much civilisation can be a terrible thing.
So long as life is full of wants and needs, division is inevitable, and only extreme circumstances can bring us together, out of necessity. It's not civilization's fault, it's just the way the universe works. In fact, it's precisely civilization which has provided us with the tools and the know-how to help each other in dire situations.
Playing the game I was always interested in Russian and Scandinavian culture. My nations always reflected them in some way. It's also the reason I came to Arctic. My first nation Trueysingi Audjofur was based on Iceland. Prekrasnaya Zemyla has always had heavy Russian influence. Hipwellgrad was full Russian communist.
Also I read the wiki and I was definitely around during the Glacial Empire but I'm not sure what nation I was using then...
I've also travelled around Scandinavia. I still chuckle when weather reports at home moan about Arctic weather, having seen the real deal and how people happily just get on with it in the real north. I get what Antler River is saying about soft lands making soft people. Life in the Arctic is fun for facing real challenges in a positive way. I respect the place and the people who call it home.
What are people's thoughts on the WA? Do you find it useful or entertaining?
I understand endorsements and influence within a region. I find the commend/condemn proposals dull and repetitive.
Does anyone take on WA laws once enacted as National policy?
