It’s okay, my friend. You take all the time you need. We will be here for you when you return. If the region somehow ceases to exist, I will create a new one under the same name and send you a recruitment telegram. (And yes, I will make you the main leader again if need be).

I have made my decision, I will leave the region and join the Knights of No Nation.
Unity is impossible to reach within the Golden Dragons, the people of our republic demand change.
Farewell, my former allies.

"Prosperity in Unity"

Unity is still possible here, however, you’re not quite helping in making it happen.

I'm sorry BlueSyndicate, but it's too late. I see no future here for myself, so i depart upon resignation, good luck in your affairs and may you rejoice that the worst of this region has left.

I will mourn the decline of our beloved region. Not rejoice. As for anyone who decides to remain loyal with me, please let me know. This is a dark week in Golden Dragons. We must rise out of these ashes: bigger, better, and more advanced than any other region in the world! Fellow nations, do not give up! I see a day ahead, when every region knows the name of Golden Dragons— even dreaming that they may be able to be like us! We will be greater, but it will only happen if we work together to better our beloved region. Are you with me?
~ Your devoted friend,

~ Your devoted friend,

I am glad to still have your loyalty to the region. And I promise when I am able to come back that I will be here better then I was before and that I will work hard to rebiuld the region.

Golden Dragons (good way to get the region’s attention without using stamps).
I wish to notify you all of our newest poll. I would ask if everyone still in our region would please answer the poll. Thank you.
You friend, A̛̕ņ͟͡t͏̸͜҉i̸̷̧̧.

It has come to my attention that a large amount of nations have left this region and due to my acquaintance to many of them I have decided to follow them into the new world. I have enjoyed my time here and I wish you all the best of luck.


Hi, so I'm joining temporarily so I can give you guys something to help out with recruiting and stuff, it's a dispatch I found while working on my region a while ago:

Looking to expand your NS experience? Look no further. Here is a list of sites and tools to add more depth to the things you do on the NS site.

Though I have tried, this is most likely not an all-inclusive list. If there are any sites or utilities that you believe should be added to the list, or if one of these already listed stops, please TG me. I always appreciate the help.

NOTE: All of these sites and utilities have been created by third parties and are not affiliated with the NationStates website or myself. While I believe all of them to be safe, you are using them at your own risk.

If you find this dispatch useful, please "up-vote" it.

Auto Telegramming Programs
If you are tired of having to use stamps to send mass telegrams, or you just need help sending large numbers of TGs you may want to try one of these. NOTE: Be sure to follow all mass telegramming and API rules, or you will face the wrath of the Mods.

NationStates AutoTelegram- This is a utility to allow you to send mass telegrams without using NS Stamps. I have used it many times in the past. It has been extremely useful for WA campaigns and mass TGing my region.

pyNSrecruit- This is another auto telegram program. It has a straightforward and easy to use interface, plus it supports use as a recruitment tool. The major upside with this one is the fact that it is still being actively developed. This means that while there may be bugs, you can be certain that it will be updated should there be adjustments to the TG or API rules.

Name Generators
Having difficulty coming up with names? These name generators will help you come up with as many as you need. These are not strictly for NationStates, but they are site commonly utilized by NS users.

LinkRandom Name Generator- This is a basic name generator that will give a block of names according to the simple parameters you set. This is ideal for generating a list of names for an entire sports team or military unit.

LinkBehind the Name- This name generator allows you to choose the category of the name, and how many names the person has. You definitely want to narrow the options before making a name, or you may get very strange ones.

LinkFake Name Generator- Despite the name, this generator doesn't just give you a name but also gives you a full online profile for the character. Very good if you want details, but don't have the time to make them up yourself.

Nation Stats Calculators
Are graphs and descriptions on you nation's NS page not enough for you? These stats calculators will give you the specific numbers and details about your nation. They are perfectly suited for getting stats for Role Playing.

LinkNSEconomy- This is the stat calculator I personally use. It is simple and easy to use.

LinkNSEconomy V 1.69- This is an updated version of NSEconomy that includes the black market stats from Sunset Tracker. It also allows you to compare two nations' stats on the same page, and provides graphs of several of your nation's demographics.

LinkNSDossier- This stats calculator provides the most regional information, but is also the slowest loading calculator.

LinkNS Calculator Mk.II- This budget calculator allows you to adjust your governments' focus, trade policy, population, and taxation to get a better, more personalized set of nation stats for Role Playing.

Phone Apps
Looking for a better, or at least different way to look at NationStates while on your phone? Try out one of these apps for your phone.

LinkNation States - free- This is an Android App for your phone. It allows you to answer issues, compare stats and graphs of multiple nations, and track your nation stats over time.

LinkNSDroid- This is another Android App to make using NationStates on your phone easier. It allows you to post to your region's RMB, send and receive TGs, and keep track of nations in your dossier.

Plugins and Extensions

NationStates++- This is a browser extension for the NationStates site. It adds stats, and reorganizes some of the pages to be easier to use. It also has a feature that allows you to switch between nations you control with one click. It is very nice and kept up to date. This is a third party extension, so use at your own risk. However, NationStates is in the process of acquiring the extension, so it may gain "official" status in the near future.

LibreNS++- This is another, similar browser extension for the NationStates site. Much like NS++, this extension adds more functionality to the NS website, including mobile support, puppet management, automatic RMB updates, and IRC chat added to the region pages.

SerinApprox- This is a bot for your NationStates IRC channels that automatically calculates regions' approximate update times. It is an extremely useful tool if you are using your IRC for NS gameplay. SerinApprox is a plug-in for the LinkmIRC client, so if you are the one running the bot on the channel you must use mIRC. Everyone else on the channel will be able to access the bot regardless of their IRC client.

NSBreeze- NSBreeze is an extension for Chrome, to add keyboard shortcuts to the NationStates site. This gives you the ability to navigate using the press of a key. This is a very useful extension if you are involved in the R/D game.

Political Graphing Sites
Looking for a way to graph your nation's place on the political spectrum? Well, these sites will help you do that. Now, These are not strictly for NationStates, but they are site commonly utilized by NS users.

LinkThe Political Compass- This is the most common political graphing test used on NS. It provides a good measure of one's political stance, or the stance of your nation.

LinkPolitical Spectrum Quiz- This is a good alternative to the Political Compass site. It allows you to weight each question according to how significant you feel it is, so you can add another layer of personalization. However, due to this added feature it may not be very compatible with the Political Compass results.

Want to run a sports RP? These programs and spreadsheets will help you generate scores fairly according to the inputs. I personally have little to no experience with these, so my descriptions will be limited.

Linkxkoranate- This is a fair versatile scorinator that allows you to simulate a wide variety of sports, both individual and team. It is probably the most commonly used scorinator.

LinkNSFS- This is a scorinator design specifically for football (soccer) scoring.

LinkLeagion- This is a Java-based program for american football scores. Written by Rejistania.

LinkTennis 0.3.1- This is an Excel based scorinator for tennis match ups. LinkOpenoffice version. Written by Schiavonia.

LinkLeague Ranking Sheet 3.2- This is a spreadsheet for league standings and rankings. Written by Osarius.

Wiki sites
Are you looking for a good place to post a world factbook or your nation's history? These Wiki sites are the perfect place for it.

LinkNSWiki- This is a reboot of the now defunct wiki site of the same name. It is filled with bot generated pages, so the entries may or may not be accurate. It is well kept and managed, and it is highly recommended.

LinkIIWiki- The "II" stands for "international incidents", so this is a strictly In Character wiki. That means nothing can be posted that breaks the Link"fourth wall".

LinkNSIndex- This wiki site was made in response to the chaos created by NSWiki changing owners. The benefit of this site is that it has full access to Wikimedia commons and there are no computer-generated pages.

LinkWikiStates- This is another alternative wiki site. It is rather small, but has an active community.

Other useful things.

NationStates Battle Simulator- This is a great tool to help war RPs. Instead of just rolling dice or arbitrarily deciding the results of a battle, you can just plug in various factors for both sides of the conflict and have the simulator crunch the numbers for you.

LinkFlagMaker 1.7- If making flags in MS Paint is too basic for you, try using this program. It even has a random function if you are all out of ideas. (Special thanks to Zambara for finding this.)

NationStates Nation Manager- This is a small application that allows you to log in to a long list of puppets with one click of the mouse. I used to use this program frequently, when I was juggling 30+ puppet nations. It is very helpful.

LinkNSHistory- This site allows you to look at the history of nations and regions. How many nations were in the North Pacific in June of 2008? This site will let you know. (The answer is 3,602 nations, by the way.)

LinkNSEmbassy- Regional Embassies make a web of connections across NationStates. How are they all connected? This will show you... In several different ways.

LinkNSRegionFlags- Have you ever wanted to look at all the regions' flag on NS all at once? Me neither. But if you get bored you should check it out.

LinkPlanet Creation Kit- This is a random planet generator. It allows you to set some basic parameters and then generates the scientific details of the planet. What is it useful for? I dunno.

LinkStarship and Space Combat Calculator- Sick of spending all that time designing spacecraft and arguing over your weapons? Well, this will figure everything out for you. This is perfect for FT role playing.

I hope it will help, I gave it to zebb (Alanith) on a website we chat on, but he's very inactive so I'm giving it to you guys. And if you guys don't recognize me, I was a former member of the High Council. You can look through Golden Dragons History if you wish to make sure, I hope this helps :) Btw I won't be coming back, I just came to give you this.

Occitanii I am sad to see you go, my friend. I hope that your journeys will eventually bring you back to us. Meanwhile, all I can do now is to wish you luck.
