Welcome to the Meritocratic Isles!

The Meritocratic Isles are glad to welcome you to our region.  Rather you are a newcomer or a world-weary statesmen, the Isles has something to offer you.  We are one of the oldest regions in NationStates, and we are currently a Prefecture of The Meritocracy.

Please take a chance to tell us a little about yourself.   What brought you to the Isles?  What is the history of your nation? What are you like in “real life?”

After the introductions are out of the way, feel free to relax and make a new friend in the Salabosse Bathhouse, or perhaps study our laws and history in the The Athenaeum. If you are wondering about how our government works, you can read our guide to the Meritocratic Isles.  And if you like what you see, you may always submit an application for citizenship to the INS.

I suppose I should post something here to encourage the use of this topic.

My nation is Jasque, and I refounded the Isles (with the support of Afslav) after its original founder, Thomasia, was deleted.  I have kept at least one nation in the Isles for as long as I can remember.  I respected this region because it is the birthplace of The Meritocracy.  Additionally, the region had no founder for a very long time, and so a small group of Meritocrats had to protect it against invasion.  I was one of those Meritocrats, and I grew attached to the region I was stationed in.

In real life I work as a bookkeeper/accountant for a small manufacturing company.  I also go to school for economics and finance.  Additionally, I am working on a new game called Politizens.  You will probably notice that politizens is the name of the website hosting this forum.  It is my website, and the future home of the game Politizens.  Wink

Welcome, Telros.  Smiley

Politizens is a game that is currently under development.  This message board isn't associated with Politizens; I just have it on the same website to save some money. 

About the game:
Quote
Politizens is a game where players create characters who are human individuals within a nation. These characters are Political-Citizens (hence the name). Characters always have a fundamental political goal and thus their possible jobs are restricted to those that have political effects on a nation. Characters can engage in numerous fields, from the worlds of politics to business to the military to religion and other organizations of a fundamentally political nature.

There will be nations within the game, and those nations will have working economies, domestic legislation, international relations, and militaries.  However, the emphasis is on the citizen.  Players will impact their nation in a manner similar to real life.  They will organize political parties, run for office, protest laws they disagree with, plot assassinations, and much more.  Players can be ambitious and attempt to rise to power and use their position to create an empire, or they can lurk in the shadows and run a terrorist organization.  It will all be up to the player.

Hello to all. I just joined your region, after I received a mesage from United States of Valle de Mejico.

OOC: I'm 15, a junior in high school, and I'm a newbie to this whole thing you call NationStates. Hopefully I'm not too much of an idiot when playing.

Hi Sharpirous.  Welcome to the Isles.   Smiley

If you want any advice on NS, just ask somebody on the forum.  Many of us have been playing the game for a long time, so we know a thing or two.  We also remember what it was like to be new.  We all had to learn as well.   If you have a question that is too embarrassing to ask on the forum, just send a PM to me or one of the other members.
