Welcome to GO

The Citizen Application Process has been updated. The good news is some fun new information to add about your nation and a brand new and much prettier Citizen Registry the bad news, people are going to have to redo their Applications to account for the new info.

Read through the updated Citizenship Processs most people will be on step 4 awaiting the new information supplementing the bio. I'd suggest building a new application and copying in the old info.

Because making it is a massive pain, you are responsible for your own registry card and you will not be on the next map update if you do not fill it out there are to many of you for me to do it myself, fill out the information yourself its preformed so its fairly easy.

Also yes you finally broke me GDP is now a thing... goddammit

I got my new GDP, so what is next?

Fill out the specialization form and send your new application via telegram for approval, lastly fill out the registry card for final acceptance.

Follow the steps as if you are on step 4 of the process

    1. Move your Nation to Greater Olympus

      Might seem obvious, but citizenship requires living in the region before the process can begin. If you leave the region during the process you must begin again. "Service Guarantees Citizenship" =p

    2. Read through any dispatches pinned to the Gateway

      Rules, General Etiquette, and other important information may be contained here, following them will speed up the application process tremendously.

    3. Put Claim on The Regional Map Thread

      Putting a claim on the map thread lets other applicant know what land is being claimed where. This is to prevent confusion and overlapping claims. If your Application is rejected you will have to reapply to the thread. Below is the basic application more details can be found on the Thread itself. There are two maps of the region, the Regional Map and the Political Map. For your purpose, the Political Map is what you will be working with.

      Regional Map Application

      • Display Name: (If the nation you wish to roleplay is not the same as your NS name)

      • Capital City: Name & Location

      • Claim: (The official territory of your country, map image is preferred. A general description of your territory is not sufficient.)

    4. Wait for your Land Bio

      A basic outline of your choosen lands will be sent to you. It will show climate, population, trade power, and other important information for completing the Full Citizen Application. It is a basic structure and by no means to intensive giving the Nation lots of wiggle room to customize their nation

    5. Fill out the LinkSpecializations Form

      Once you have received your Landbio and Economy Type, fill out the Specializations Form. The form allows you to focus your nations economy and gives you a basic idea of your trade priorities and interactions. Similarly it focuses on what type of Military doctrine your nation would be using. Keep in mind the specialization order, as they can be in a different order than the form might intially suggest.

    6. Fill out the Full Application

      The Citizenship Application should be approached with care and caution the information has a certain degree of flexibility as things change over time through Roleplays, but by in large shouldn't change greatly. When the application is completed put it in a dispatch and telegram the link to Greater Olympia, and link the initial Map Application.

      (Describe your economic system including the type of economy, the GDP in the Land Bio as well as the specializations chosen from the form. Outside of Land Bio information, be sure to tell us about how your economy operates going slightly beyond just saying "free trade")

    7. Wait for Approval or Rejection

      The Application will enter the review process. Your application may be given back for revisions before being accepted. If it is rejected outright you must go through the application process again fixing the errors mentioned in the rejection.

    8. Registry Information

      Okay, you are almost done final stretch of a fairly long and tedious process. When you receive confirmation of your application, fill out the registry information below and send it to Greater Olympia. This is the information needed for the registry, and make it look pretty. Keep in mind you will probably have to upload a 200X100 pixel version of your flag to an image hosting site. (Dependent on exact flag parameters but in general keep it 200 pixel wide). Lastly put your accepted application in your dispatches. So the basic information about your country is accessible to all members of the region. If you are registering a second nation check the registry for the correct form. Please keep the pre tags in the telegram you send so the code doesn't activate in the telegram itself.

Now go have fun causing chaos on the international playing field.

Copy that.

I'm back again. Sorry about returning and disappearing again last time (May 1). No, it was meant to be a prank. Just life. Well here's to hoping I'm finally back for good.

Welcome back!
