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!

Questions?

If you have more questions, you can check for answers in the The North Pacific FAQs. The Yellow Pages in particular provide a comprehensive guide to the region in a single thread.

If you cannot find the answer to your questions there, or if you are having any trouble with the forum, you can contact our forum administrators and global moderators here.

Share two facts and a lie about your nation. Guess the lie made by the individual above you.



I'll start:

1) The Kingdom of McMasterdonia has a regency at this time
2) The Kingdom of McMasterdonia has not yet had a female monarch.
3) The Kingdom of McMasterdonia's Royal Family privately owns the flagship airline of McMasterdonia.

2). Esplandia has long mild winters.

Your guess for Andrenne was wrong, but your guess for Skanda was right. Andrenne changed it's flag 3 times in the 20th century, from the First Imperyk to the Second Imperyk, from the Second Imperyk to the Provisional Government, and from the Provisional Government to the Constitutional Monarchy. Andrenne is known for having mild, cool summers averaging in the 60s and low 70s (Fahrenheit). As for Skanda, the majority of the population is Uhashiist, a religion native to Skanda.

As for Sil, the lie is #1?

And here's 3 more for Skanda
1). Skanda has beat both the Syrixians and the Andrennians in wars.
2). Skanda is officially known as the Socialist Republic of Skanda as of 2018.
3). Skandan musicians are known for playing the ukulele.

I’m guessing that...#2 is a lie.

Here’s three for Kyoki Chudoku, specifically RMB Kyoki Chudoku. Good luck!

1. Kyoki Chudoku means “insanity addiction” in Japanese.
2. The “tenshification” process creates magical and immortal warriors totally loyal to Aozora Chiyumi. The main downside is the lethality of the process.
3. For minor crimes, Kyoki Chudoku will often “nekofy” a criminal, which causes them to develop feline ears and tails that are especially sensitive to pain. This is used a “warning punishment”.
PM me for free cookie. May contain traces of hydrogen cyanide.
Also, I'm always willing to sell them in exchange for your soul. Don't worry, it's not like I can use it for anything, right?
Kyoki Chudoku

This nation exists for fun and insanity and does not represent my actual views. Oh yeah I have a blog now. And a page for storing all of my RMB walls of text.

2??

Kalety:

1. Kalety exists because the Syrixians had a catastrophic failure on the archipelago and named the area cursed.
2. Kalety's language is called Kaleta.
3. Folklore suggests the city's name derives from the names of a fisherman and his rusalka lover.

I know 1 and 2 are true, so 3. Also, nope! 1 was the lie. Gauri II was his niece!

1- The original name of the city of Nidaros was Värmo.
2- The island of Druvøy in southeastern Valland is rumored to be haunted!
3- The last ancient High King of Valland was Agnar the Old.

I know 1 is true, and 3 seems pretty out there, so I'll choose... 2 as the lie.

I know y'all don't know anything about The South Falls, but I'll try to have you guess.

#1: The South Fallsian Navy has only 43 ships.

#2: The South Fallsian creates food through Food Creation Engines, and does not have agriculture.

#3: The South Falls has had only seven Prime Ministers.
This is the South Falls. We're a nation who showed up once and can't be prodded to leave. Nope. Can't do it! I'm sorry if I don't read things well. I didn't make it too clear, but I understand things worse than most people, and so if my post doesn't exactly fit with the topic, know that I tried to understand it the best I can.

Correct, number 2 was the lie. The Lamonian Meteorological Service is run by the Lamonian Air Force.

As for yours... number one seems the most likely lie.

1.) The inspiration for Lamoni's military dress uniforms comes from RL Poland.
2.) The largest grocery store in Lamoni is named Omega Foods.
3.) All of Lamoni's civil medals are based on orders of knighthood, despite never having a monarchy.

3's true (kinda sure). 2's true (pretty sure). Which mean's 1's false!




[RMB] Yukkira

1) Kirin Yuki, the reigning empress, normally led military operations when Yukkira was apart of Hotel Lala.

2) The Imperial Yukkirian Armed Forces never deployed its Air Navy without supporting it from the ground.

3) Veronica once kicked a penguin out of Hotel Lala's main HQ via note in a bottle after the penguin broke through the front door with a tank.

[Eras] Yukkira

1) Throughout Yukkira's history, it was subordinate to three colonial empires.

2) The de facto capital of the Principality of Yukkira wasn't Xia, but Seta.

3) Veronica is the first openly bisexual Heir Apparent in all of Yukkira's history.
