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.

TapaTalkalypse



Zetaboards, the forum software of choice for many notable regions within NationStates, including Force, The North Pacific, The East Pacific, and The Rejected Realms, is being sold to TapaTalk. This means more than just a simple change of host; it means that things like themes, permissions, and working bbCode among other things that some regions have taken years to perfect will be gone. This shift is gradual and although many of the largest regions haven't faced it yet, smaller regions, Force included have. It hit us without warning and to compensate, we are shifting over to a self hosted forum at the moment. For us as a new region, the change isn't too major, but for many older regions with years of history in those forums, it's huge.

Elections in Heart



The Heart elections were an interesting spectacle, with two candidates withdrawing, two standing, Southern States and Johnpre both withdrew, and Alemputo and The scottish republic battling it out for the office of Prime Minister, There was a debate and two press conferences, each featuring difference in opinions, interesting questions, and, best of all, each candidate showed lots of respect for the other, and in the end, Alemputo was victorious, but both candidates showed respect, in this intriguing election period.

Elections in Force and the Trouble with Crazybloxian



Early last month, Candidacy announcements began for Prime Minister of Force, the three that decided to run, were, Libertatis Regalis, Seoul-Pyongyang and Crazybloxian Empire, Now, we all know, that Libertatis Regalis was re-elected convincingly, however, the build up to election had controversy, Crazybloxian Empire was a controversial candidate, who had his election mainly based off RP, which was also a bit controversial, his inactivity was a downfall, not joining discord till late, and not answering questions, in the end he left the region, clearly seeing he was going to lose, This was unfortunate to have a candidate like that, thankfully the other candidates were very sensible, and the election ended peacefully.

PM Bennisia of Heart; A Region in Turmoil



A few months ago, some controversy broke out, with Bennisia II angered because he couldn't stand in an election, he kept constantly trying to prove he was right, which lead to more problems and complications, which ended in him being removed as PM of Heart, Bennisia II brought activity to Heart, but also brought problems and controversy, he ended up moving to New Western Atlantic, where there has been more controversy since, but that's for them to talk about, not me.

A New Future for RGBN



RGBN is a laid back region, once comfortably large and active (130+ nations) has been reduced to just 10. Being among our very first embassies, we took notice. An agreement between Force and RGBN was made handing over control over the region to Force and allowing the founder to lead as Governor. Now, under Force control, efforts are being made to make RGBN the great and welcoming region it once was through recruitment and a revamped system of laws and leadership.
