Please don’t fill our RMB with spam.

We have rules, please familiarize yourself with them.

Hello! Welcome to the South Pacific, and its regional message board, or RMB! It is a vibrant, active place where people from all around the world can hang out and talk. It is the region's primary place of communication, and is open to all types of conversations, debates, and overall fun. However, without some form of rules, the RMB would be a wild, annoying, and downright un-enjoyable place. And so, due to this, rules must be laid down and enforced. These are important to protect everyone's safety, dignity, and sanity. So we all ask that you please take the time to read the following rules, and try your hardest to follow them. Remember, there are consequences for breaking the rules.

Note: The “Fundamental Rule” portion of each guideline is meant as a summary of the rule. The official text of the rule may be found in the “Details” spoiler.

Breaking these rules can result in consequences including warnings, post suppressions, and in the the case of repeated or serious infractions, ejection and banning from the region. The full, detailed Local Council Standard Moderation Policy, which specifies the exact consequences for various levels of rule-breaking, can be found here.

And so, after much introduction, here are your RMB Rules:

1. Say Neigh to Spam

Fundamental Rule: Don't spam. Spamming is bad. It is the first rule for a reason.

Spamming on the RMB is not allowed at all, under any circumstances. Spamming is probably best described as a post that is meaningless and/or unnecessary— for example, a post that repeats the same thing multiple times, a lone emoji or image, multiple posts of the same thing, or a series of posts that have no apparent meaning. It does not matter what your intent is— if your post(s) fits the above definition, it is considered spam and will be dealt with accordingly.

2. English is our Mane Language

Fundamental Rule: Posts on the Regional Message Board must be in English, or include an English translation.

We understand that many of you come from backgrounds where English is not your main language, as players come from all around the world. However, to avoid confusion among people who don't speak your language, we sincerely ask that you post in English only, for ease of communication.

Remember, there are tools like LinkGoogle Translate to help you. If you speak in another language, please add a translation to English in the same post. Posts with English translations will not be suppressed. For the avoidance of doubt, English means Modern English and not backwards English.

3. Keep Our Region Stable

Fundamental Rule: Don’t ask for people to endorse you on the Regional Message Board. Don’t ask for people to move to another region.

Asking for endorsements on the RMB is not allowed at all, under any circumstances. Ever. Permissions are only made if the requester is a member of the Council on Regional Security, the Coral Guard, or the Delegate seeking to increase endorsement counts for the purposes of promoting regional security.

If you want to receive and give more endorsements, get involved in the Southern World Assembly Initiative, TSP’s endorsement program.

Similarly, recruiting, or telling people to move to another region, is also not allowed. You may not ask people to join your region on the RMB, whether you are also a South Pacifican citizen yourself or not.

4. So a Horse walks into a bar ...

Fundamental Rule: Roleplay on the Regional Message Board, but do not break any other rules. If you're feeling nice or your roleplay is a bit niche or particularly nation driven, please consider taking your roleplaying to Knowhere or Psomewhere Over The Rainbow.

It's all legal! As long as it complies with the rules. Specifically; remember to keep your roleplays appropriate (as stated in rule IX). The LC has reached a general conclusion on what is appropriate, and if your roleplay does not fit within those boundaries, it will be stopped. So, excessive display of affection, sexually-suggesting roleplay, and the like, are not allowed at all.

Similarly, do not clog the RMB with your roleplay. If you feel it has been going on for a while, either take it to a roleplay region, or cease it all together. Otherwise, it may be interfered with. When the board is dominated by roleplay, it becomes hard for everyone else to communicate with each-other, thanks to the overabundance of posts completely unrelated to what they are doing.

But other than those things, feel free to roleplay to your heart's content!

5. Hold your Horses

Fundamental Rule: Don’t post on the Regional Message Board three times or more in a row.

Triple posting, or posting three posts in a row, is considered illegal, as are any other number of posts more than two in a row. All posts after the initial two post will be suppressed. If one hour has passed without another post on the RMB a single third post will be allowed

6. Keep your nose in your own feedbag

Fundamental Rule: Don’t reveal other players’ personal information.

It is not permitted to post or otherwise share another player's personally-identifying information (i.e. social media accounts, IP addresses, postal addresses, E-mail addresses, telephone numbers, etc.), and neither is it permitted to post or share information that may not be identifying but is nonetheless of a personal nature (i.e. medical history, relationship status, etc.). The only exception is if the player in question has shared that information themselves and does not mind its dissemination (this sharing or statement of permission must be publically viewable).

Making a claim of serious out-of-character misconduct (e.g. bullying, harassment, sexual harassment, etc.) against someone else, without providing evidence to moderation/administration, is considered malicious harassment, and will be dealt with accordingly. This rule applies to the TSP forum and discord as well.

7. Get Off Your High Horse

Fundamental Rule: Trolling, baiting or flaming of others is not allowed under any circumstances.

Trolling is defined as starting quarrels or upsetting people by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the intent of provoking other nations into displaying emotional responses. Baiting is similar to trolling, and is defined as posting with the aim of angering someone indirectly, directed at a specific person. Flaming is defined as posting insults or other verbal and often personal attacks on other nations. Erudite slams while maintaining a veneer of politeness can also be considered flaming. All three of these are banned under all circumstances.

This is an extension of a simple policy of respect. What may seem like good natured fun to you could be trolling to someone else, and if they tell you to stop, do so.
We can and will warn, suppress, and even ban you, as well as record the incident. In severe cases the NationStates Moderators will be contacted, and puppets will not hide your IP address from them.

8. You Canter Break Site Rules

Fundamental Rule: No matter where you are in NationStates, the rules for the game still apply.

TSP is a part of NationStates, and as such, you must follow the rules of the game as a whole at all times. Breaking the game rules will land you in trouble with both the regional officers and NationStates site moderation. See the link below for the list of rules and a quick FAQ page for more details on the game rules.

NationStates Rules

NationStates FAQ

9. Mind Your Dam Manners

Fundamental Rule: Don’t post anything that would not be allowed in a PG-13 movie.

Excessive swearing, explicit, suggestive, or excessively violent messages, sexual references, and other such things will be suppressed on sight, and the NationStates site moderators can and will be called to get involved in serious cases. Excessive displays of personal affection (e.g. suggestive roleplayed snuggling, nuzzling, kissing, licking and so on) is also considered inappropriate and will be suppressed accordingly.

Mild swearing may be tolerated, mild sexuality may be at the very most hinted, but explicit or excessive versions of either or both will result in moderation intervention, both from the Local Council and potentially from NationStates site moderators. Derogatory terms are disallowed, and all swearing must abide by all other rules, particularly those about respecting others.

10. Straight from the horse’s mouth

Fundamental Rule: Do not edit someone's post in a malicious way or repost offensive content.

It is illegal to edit what someone else has written when quoting it in order to make it seem like they expressed a view which they didn’t. Quote-editing should be avoided even for comic effect.

When you are responding to someone's post, please quote their post (by pressing the "quote" button), as it makes it less confusing and will alert them to your post.

When quoting an offensive post, delete the content of the post and replace it with "-snip-". Doing so makes the administrators’ jobs much easier.

When quoting long posts, please cut the post down to the particular parts you are responding to, or replace the extraneous material with "-snip-".

11. Crop Your Post

Fundamental Rule: Use spoilers when making or quoting a very long post.

The [spoiler] tag is your friend. When making or quoting a very long post, or one which not everyone might want to read, please add spoilers, so as to avoid taking up a large amount of the page.

If you are giving a spoiler of a recently released book or film, put it in a spoiler tag, to give people who haven't read/watched it a chance. As a general rule of thumb, give a month for films post-release (as release dates may be different in different areas) and two months for book releases.

12. Rein In Rudeness

Fundamental Rule: The golden rule: treat others how you want to be treated.

Remember, there are other, real people behind the nations on the RMB. Everyone here is a human being with emotions and the right to be respected.

While dissent with regional officers (LC, Delegate, CRS, and Ministers) is perfectly acceptable, remember that they are people too, and worthy of basic human decency. The regional officers should be respected at all times just as any other member of the region should.

When debating, always remember to attack the argument rather than the person making it. If you find yourself getting heated, try to take a step back. Personal insults, insults to intelligence, etc. will not be tolerated. The only form of debate banned on the RMB is that over a particular suppression. For more information, see the Help Section at the end of this document.

13. Don't Ride on Foals

Fundamental Rule: Single word or similarly short posts are not appreciated on the RMB.

Single word posts that do not advance conversation are not allowed. If you find yourself wondering if a post is both unsubstantial and too short, it likely is. This rule does not mean you have to post several paragraphs of content every time you want to post. Single sentence posts, single word greetings, and single-word replies quoting other posts are still allowed under this rule.

However, at the discretion of the Local Council, posts deemed to be insubstantial and not contributing to the regional discourse will be suppressed. An excellent way to avoid this is to add thought to your posts.

Thank you for reading, and remember to follow these guidelines!

Now sit back, relax, and enjoy your stay here in TSP!


If you believe a post breaks the rules and should be suppressed, wish to appeal to have a post unsuppressed, wish to appeal a formal warning, or have any questions about the laws of the RMB, you can contact your current Local Councillors through telegrams:

Concrete Slab
Canadian Goose Republic


Lodge complaints or comments with the following nation:

The TSP Local Council

This nation is controlled by the LC, ensuring all Local Councillors can see your complaints or comments. Remember, the rules of respect apply to telegrams as well as the RMB.

Official moderation appeals must follow the process laid out in the Standard Moderation Policy dispatch.

We can only endorse you if you're a member of the WA. If you're not sure on how to become a member, check out this guide.



How-to guide on participating SWAN

This is a guide on how to do everything this initiative encourages you to. Basically, what you have to do is just endorse and endorse!

Endorsements are something a nation can give to other nations to show that they like those nations' flag, motto,... It is kinda like the "like" button on Facebook or Twitter, but endorsements have far more important roles than that such as increasing the influence of your nation, the voting power and influence of the Delegate, and making the region safer against external and internal security threats (You can read more about these here), which is why the SWAN initiative's primary purpose is to encourage you to endorse.

In order to endorse a nation, you need to join the World Assembly. In this how-to guide, we will show you how to join the World Assembly, how to endorse a nation, how to endorse a lot of nations in a short time, and how to maximize your endorsement gain.

How do I join the World Assembly?

Before starting, please note that you can only have one nation participates in the World Assembly at a time! You can have as many nations as you like but you can only have a maximum of one nation in the World Assembly at any given time.

Step 1: Get an Email Account

In order to join the World Assembly, you need an email account. You can use any account from any service you prefer. We recommend you to use LinkGmail since it is reliable for NationStates-related purposes.

Step 2: Set Email Address for Your Nation

To set the email address of your email account for your nation, just click the Settings button with the gear icon at the top to open the setting page then scroll down, enter your email address in the E-mail box then click Update.

Step 3: Apply for the World Assembly

Go to the World Assembly page (You can go to this page from anywhere by clicking the World Assembly button on the left) then click the Apply to Join button.

Step 4: Be Admitted to the World Assembly

A few seconds after applying, NationStates will send you a confirmation email. Open this email then click the link in there.

A page will open, click the Confirm: Join World Assembly button.

You're done! Welcome to the World Assembly! If this is the first time you do this, NationStates will give you a banner to celebrate. You now have the power to vote on legislation in the two chambers of the World Assembly: the General Assembly and the Security Council as well as endorse nations (Look below to know how to endorse a nation).

How do I endorse a nation?

To endorse a nation, just open the page of that nation then scroll down and click the Endorse <nation name> button!


  • You need to be in the World Assembly in order to endorse a nation. Look above for the guide on how to join the World Assembly.

  • You cannot endorse a nation that is not in the World Assembly and in the same region as you.

Who should I endorse?

The more nations you endorse, the more endorsements other nations will give back to you and the higher the chance you will be ranked in the top 0.1% of NationStates for nations with highest endorsements and receive awards to commend your contribution to our region!

How can I find nations to endorse?

You can find nations to endorse in the following places:

Please note that there are up to 1083 nations that you can endorse so you may want to check out the below question on how to quickly endorse a lot of nations.

How can I endorse a lot of nations in a short time?

Please read this dispatch.

How can I maximize the number of endorsements I will gain?

To make the number of endorsements you will gain as high as possible, you can:

  • Send a telegram to ask a nation for an endorsement. (Remember to endorse them first before doing this!)

  • Keep your nation in the World Assembly as long as possible and continue to endorse nations. If you have nearly endorsed everyone (You can check that on our census), look at the regional happening page to find new nations that just joined the World Assembly or migrated to our region to endorse.

How many endorsements can I have? (Required reading)

Your endorsement count must not be higher than a limit called the endorsement cap (Endocap for short).

The current endorsement cap is 498, you can also find the number on the World Factbook Entry of our region.

If you exceed the endorsement cap, a member nation of the Council on Regional Security will telegram you to tell you to do certain actions to bring down your endorsement count.

You can read more information about the Council on Regional Security here as well as the endorsement cap and what will happen if you exceed it here.

I want more information!

  • You can check out our benefits dispatch to know the rationale behind many actions this initiative encourages you to do.

  • For more information on everything, you should check out our dispatch index.

  • If you want to know even more, give a look at our FAQ.

If you want to know more about the SWAN initiative, check out our dispatch index.

The Transvacau government, and the citizens now have absolutely no intentions of joining the NPE or to become independent, and there are no current riots going on in any city, town, or village. Stop spreading false information.

Dude Firstly we don't want Transvacau because mainly we don't want a state that is INSIDE your country and secondly we want to tear your country apart, you losing a state it will generate a domino effect so there will be no torchalea anymore (So far that's my plan)
