World Factbook Entry

As Alexander marched East, conquering and scattering whole nations to the wind, his army eventually came upon a sprawling mountain range.

Ignoring locals who warned against it, Alexander set off through the mountain pass with a few men to see what manner of people lay to the North.

When Alexander returned, he returned alone and wild eyed. He spoke of an “innumerous horde” of “unclean nations”, poised to wreak devastation.

And he spoke little more, but set his army to work building a great wall that would span this mountain pass -- "lest those Unclean Nations turn their eyes South to the civilized world."

We are the nations Alexander encountered. We are the Horde walled up behind his Gates. Pray we do not turn our gaze South.

And don't forget about me.

Here as well.

In fact, there appear to be many of us...

...enough for a party

Yeah, it's all just me...I just enjoyed the idea for the joke and couldn't pass it up

Hello friend, welcome.

You may be a little disappointed to discover that this region is actually just myself and all of my puppets. I am not too much involved with the wider NS community, preferring to seclude myself here and play with world-building and creating histories for my nations.

However, I am not opposed to others in my region, I simply do not go out of my way to recruit. You are more than welcome to stay.

Let me know what you think, and if you'd like to remain. You appear pretty new to NationStates, so if you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer any and all. I can also help with making flags and banners, if that interests you.

Great, glad to hear.

I'm in the United States, and am usually checking in and answering issues between 6am to 9am before work, maybe a couple times later. I've been checking in today more often because Z-Day is coming. Let me know if you want to participate in Z-Day.

Hello and merry Christmas all. As a gift we’ve decided to donate you a crate of sprouts for the head(s) of state for every nation and we have our chef’s assurances they will be the best sprouts you’ve ever tasted.

Enjoy today and have a happy new year from Christmas.
