Welcome to The North Pacific!
Where the democracy is strong, the debate robust, and the rum plentiful.


The North Pacific is one of the oldest and most powerful regions in NationStates. We pride ourselves on our strong democracy, openness, and transparency.

The region is affectionately called TNP. TNP is home to over 4,000 nations, called TNPers, and we are always looking for more to join us. We are glad to see you here and hope you decide become a TNPer yourself!

As a new arrival, you may be bewildered with everything that is going on. We understand, and for this reason, we have prepared this quick introduction to TNP. Unpack your bags, make yourself at home, and enjoy your stay :) .

First step: register an account

Please do not register more than one account on the forum. If you are not happy with the account you have created and want to change the name, reach out to an administrator.

You are currently viewing the forum as a guest. This means that you can only view some of the forum areas, and you cannot participate in any of them. To be able to join in or even see most of the things we will describe below, you will need to register an account. This is a quick and easy process that you can start by clicking here.

Our Government

The North Pacific is a constitutional democracy. We have a constitution, a bill of rights, and a legal code, which you can read here. Our government has four branches:

The Legislature consists of the Regional Assembly (RA), which votes to enact and amend legislation. Discussions in the RA are moderated by the Speaker, who is elected from among the RA members, and their Deputies. Everyone with a nation in the region can apply to join the RA.

The Executive consists of the Delegate, Vice Delegate, the Cabinet of Ministers, and the Executive Staff. The Delegate and Vice Delegate are elected by the RA, and are accountable to it. The Ministers are appointed by the Delegate, and each one of them manage their own staff. Together, the Executive runs the day-to-day affairs of the government. Broad areas the Executive is responsible for include home affairs, foreign affairs, World Assembly affairs, communications, culture, and our military. Everyone with a nation in the region can apply to join the Executive Staff and work in one of the Ministries.

The Judiciary consists of a single court, which has two Associate Justices and one Chief Justice. All Justices are elected by the RA, and are accountable to it. The court can authoritatively answer questions of law, void actions of other officials that have been brought for review, and decide criminal cases. Interacting with the Judiciary is the Attorney General, also elected by the RA, who serves as the chief prosecutor in criminal trials and as legal counsel to the Executive.

The Security Council is generally considered as a separate branch. It is a body of members that monitor the region for security purposes. They help protect the in-game delegacy, help with delegacy transitions during elections, and also provide a mechanism of response in the case of an illegal in-game delegate. They are accountable to the RA.

You can find a list of current government officials here.

Ways to Get Involved

The best way to start getting involved is to apply for citizenship. Citizenship allows you to access all forum areas and join the various government and community activities. The application process should be easy and fast, and the only prerequisite is having a nation in the region. Once you are a citizen, you will also be eligible to vote and be a candidate in elections for the various government offices, such as Delegate and Vice Delegate - there is an election roughly every two months.

If the description of the government has enticed you, you should definitely consider contributing in the various branches! As a citizen, you can take part in the Regional Assembly, where you can legislate and scrutinize the government. You can also apply to join the Executive Staff, and get involved in any Ministry that interests you.

If you would like to poke around the forum and interact with our community before deciding to become a citizen, you should register your residency. Once you do so, you will be able to access most of the areas of this forum and join the various other activities. Here is a sample:

You can participate in our Role Play section, where you can write the story of your nation, interact with your neighbours on The North Pacific map, and join the Democratic Union.

You can drop by our World Assembly section, to discuss resolutions at vote, draft your own resolutions, and determine how our WA Delegate represents us in the World Assembly.

If you want to experience and learn about the military gameplay, one of the most exciting aspects of the game, you can enlist in the North Pacific Army and start serving TNP as a proud soldier!

We in The Land of Kings and Emperors observed Imperial Reclamation Day on the 29th of May. This occasion remembers and celebrates the valiant actions of the Imperial Army, on that day in 2012 we reclaimed the United Kingdom of Britain from the reprehensible forces of the Greater German Reich. To mark the occasion His Supreme Majesty sought it fit to bestow awards and titles upon those who have faithfully served The Land of Kings and Emperors in the prior months. For their honorable work in the Thematic Commission, in the Imperial Council, and commitment to regional culture, Paulus Gaius Epistre and Rex Ciphra were awarded the Order of Achievement. For his service in the Imperial Colonies, Barzai ux Loddhan was awarded the Order of Empire. For his extensive service to The Land of Kings and Emperors and his extensive leadership in the prior months, Prime Minister Megaleiotha Eirhno was appointed the Order of Superbus with Distinction.

Alongside the medals given out, His Supreme Majesty generated Letters Patent CXCVI and Letters Patent CXCVII on this day. Letters Patent CXCVI has named former Minister of Communications and current President of the Lion Party, Rayregalia von Arcadia as Governor-General of The Land of Dragonia. While Letters Patent CXCVI concerned Minister of the Exterior Thomas Insaniac. For his extensive service in the Ministry of the Exterior, his commitment to regional activity, and extensive service to the State, he was named as Baron of Nassau.



Cultural Imperialism

Our Inspiration


The Land of Kings and Emperors has experienced big changes in our themes during the month of May. In mid-April, His Supreme Majesty Theoden Sebastian appointed Minister of the Exterior Thomas Insaniac to head the aptly named Insaniac commission. Joined by Minister of Culture Rex Ciphra and Deputy Prime Minister Paulus Gaius Epistre; this commission was tasked with reviewing the current cultural landscape of the Imperial Homeland and attempt to bring the LKE closer to its historical theme; that of the Holy Roman Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. This was to be done while keeping in mind the extensive history of the LKE and our nature as an English speaking community. In the end, the commission presented a report to His Supreme Majesty with over six pages of recommendations in what to maintain and what could be changed.

On the 18th of May, His Supreme Majesty Theoden Sebastian revealed the changes that would be adopted in the coming weeks. Alongside naming changes to the Imperial Army, institutions, and the Imperial Government we expect a full review of the laws and decrees of the realm. This is in order to bring them in line with the thematic changes. While these are not major changes in the way The Land of Kings and Emperors will functionality operate, this commission is just another facet of the massive cultural rejuvenation we have seen during the reign of Emperor Theoden.



Legislative Landslide

May and June have proved themselves to be very busy months for the Imperial Diet. During this time, we have seen a multitude of acts presented to His Supreme Majesty. From Constitutional amendments directly affecting Elector status to minor cultural changes.

However, what is possibly more important than what has reached His Supreme Majesty, are the acts that are still being fiercely debated. In the public forum of the Imperial Diet, regular citizens have taken to debate and proposal of The Criminal Code, Midterm Elections, and Cultural Elections Act. In the actual Imperial Senate, the law making body of the Imperial Diet, the before mentioned Midterm Elections billed was narrowly defeated, returned to debate, and was then passed once more. However, the Government Styles Act did not see the same fortunate, it has sat in defeat since it was first rejected.

With the June General Elections appearing on the horizon, we await to see how these debates will form up, or will they become hot button topics for the election.



Other News Of The Realm...
