When you write the lore of your nation, do you recognize the existence and history of real life nations, or do you work within a different frame?
It looks nice
look at this.
Step 1-Finding your picture
This is the easiest part. Before you put that wonderful picture in your Factbook, you have to find your picture. Lets say for instance, that the picture you want is a Christmas Tree.
First, go on your search engine and type in Christmas Tree.
Find the picture you like.
Put the mouse over it, right click, and select Save Image As.
Then save it on your computer. MAKE SURE YOU GIVE IT A NAME SO YOU CAN FIND IT.
Step 2-Finding a place to upload your picture
This can be a challenge. I typically use Tinypic, with this link:
Image Uploading Site
Step 3-Uploading your picture
Now that you are on Tinypic, open up your Nationstates account and open up the factbook you want to place your photo in.
Click back on to Tinypic and click browse.
Select your photo.
Then click on upload now.
This next part is a little tricky, which is why it needs its own step.
Step 4-Putting your Picture into a Factbook
At this point, you have 2 options. The first is IMG, and the second is URL.
IMG is the one you may generally want, but depending on the size of your picture, you may have to select the URL. IMG usually works in Factbooks, while URL is recommended for RP's. Simply take the link you want and copy and paste it.
Here is the Christmas Tree in IMG:
Here it is in URL:
Like I said, IMG works for Factbooks. If you want them for RP's, use URL's. It is the same process for RP's.
That should do it! Happy uploading!
UPDATED VERSION HERE:
You can telegram the individual to unendorse...
I'd unendorse you but then i'd lose my second place endorsement spot.
When the Autarky policy was put in place in my nation it barely changed my economy.
Yeah mine barely changed too.

- Trade Prince Albany Gallywix
Albany Allen Gallywix is an Alerian-born Trade Prince and business conglomerate CEO among Alenshire where his political policies have brought about the Leviathan Age of Alenshire. He is the House of the renowned company ”Lucky Ace Casino”, the founder of the remarkable Alerian retail store “Neumart” and enriched owner ”Cappa-Cola Industries” to which he has sourced headquarters for his thriving businesses in Neuburg, the premier business center of the region.
Albany Gallywix hails from rural Snowburg(later being developed into Neuburg by Albany’s businesses) wherein he spent his first years as a farmhand in the developing town that took a toll to his physical health, and was born June 9th, 1981 into a poor farmer family. He attended Stover Community College but dropped out a few weeks into his first semester because he hated the unfair socialistic policies of the college that prohibited him from learning unbiased and attributable business lessons.
After dropping out of college he applied to the military, during his training for the infantry for the Alerian-Colgorian War, 19-year-old Albany read the Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes and began to apply the political theory to his future goals.
During the war, Gallywix reached the rank of Major in the Alenshire 16th Infantry Regiment, and was decorated for valor for his participation. After the war he used his G.L. (Good-Luck) pension from the military to finance his bootlegging services, an illegal fence to sell Colgorian property obtained from the war, and an underground gambling casino ring; all would fund his attendance to Oxford College. While there, he majored in business management and the fine arts wherein he earned an executive degree.
Having acclaimed a fortune in bootlegging and degrees of business and fine arts, Gallywix applied himself to act in several indie-films that would later become cult-classic of Alenshire as he rose through the ranks in politics.
In reaction to his criminal occupations (for which the government collected “fines” to protect Albany Gallywix from prison sentences) the Alerian people roared for the government to legalize gambling, overseas retailing, and alcohol. When the people were ignored they pleaded for Albany Gallywix to work in politics to get his acclaimed businesses legalized.
This sudden wave fortune and fame prompted Albany Gallywix to begin a rise in the political world, knowing that it would eventually become his domain.
After buying out the land that the previous corrupt socialistic government offered in attempts to appease their own desires, Gallywix became the leader of the Trade Empire, the most powerful Alerian corporations. Gallywix promoted conscription and service in the Alerian private militia, established the rights of producers and consumers in Alenshire, and lead Alenshire to become an envisioned representation of his Leviathan Manifesto.
Listening to his own people Gallywix allowed for alcohol, gambling, and fencing of overseas product. The originally poor economic status that Alenshire claimed through socialism was struck down by Albany’s capitalistic policies and he retains his position as Trade Prince of the Trade Empire in its service to Alenshire and its people.
The overarching decision maker of the nation in politics is the next able CEO business manager of Alenshire, which is the Gallywix family’s objective to create noble leaders to become Trade Prince/Princess.
Following Albany Gallywix objective of buying and reforming government businesses, all aspects business and all businesses of Alenshire would be handled by either the Trade Empire or any other persons/corporation. No government interference or competition.
This policy was an placed to combat the costs of orphanages and to decrease the orphan in take of government assistance as it would allow children to become fully independent in whatever job they wish to pursue and encourage work experience. The policy attributed greatly to Alenshire’s frighteningly efficient economy as it nearly tripled the Alerian workforce.

Before being sent off to war, Gallywix met and fell in love with 21-year-old debutante Rose Buchanan, who was everything Gallywix was not: rich and from a patrician New Atlas family. Rose believed Albany was of some wealthy aptitude by his mannerisms and stoic personality, insisting that they conceive before his departure.
Upon his arrival back Albany took a Colgorian emerald ring off a dead government official and intended to propose to Rose with it, though Rose told Albany that their child had died during birth and delayed Albany’s proposal. Eventually Albany married Rose and they conceived another child, but she soon came to find out that Gallywix only recently acclaimed his fortune and not when he first met her. Out of rage she exclaimed that their first born had not died but was sold to Colgorian rebels, Albany promptly divorced his wife after a year of marriage and took his second born child (Sterling Gallywix) with him.
Gallywix later developed a reputation for womanizing, hard drinking, chain smoking. He was linked romantically with acting and political figures Lupe Vélez, Marlene Dietrich and Dolores del Río, among many others. He would hold extravagant parties wherein he would indulge in exotic women, to which he continues to hold today but for the purpose of bringing joy to the people rather than fulfilling sexual desires.
