World Factbook Entry

The Vast, as its name implies, is a large area of political intrigue and varied interests, with plenty of room for the imaginative and politically savvy. Located in what has included Mediterranean-like, Germanic, Slavic, Russo and other cultures.

No limits in tech, WA membership, types of play, or anything else reasonable. Anyone's welcome who wants to hang out and not be a nuisance - using my region as a base to raid from is a nuisance. Don't do it. Raiders looking to mess the place up are also a nuisance. Kindly feel free to faff about elsewhere and entertain yourselves.

We're in it to have fun. Don't spam tg boxes or RMB with regional merge offers. It will be reported.

She'll be back.

womp womp.


I HAVE RETURNED! I turned 19 the other day. I canít believe back in 2014 when I first discovered this site I was stilla Progressive Liberal. So much has changed... Either way Iím glad to have found this place & NS definitely helped me on my journey.

Meh, I just keep on timing out every single time.

Got invited to an RP by an old acquaintance on here. Been a long time since I've ventured to that part of the site. Got me answering issues, and I can still safely vote with the mindset of "Screw those Bigtopian bastards."

Answering issues feeds my obsessive compulsive neuroticism.

I haven't really touched them in the last... 5 years or so. Looking around, there's been a lot of additions I never really noticed to the site. It's just always been my homepage because... because.

Because it's black magic working your neurons! Darkness! Darkness Brothers is coming!

Good to see you, Sigma!
