Join The North Pacific Army (NPA)! The Government of the North Pacific calls upon all nations to dedicate themselves to the security and prosperity of our region. This is best achieved by a large, active and responsible military. The NPA as a military body has several functions and if you wish to join, you can choose what sort of role you wish to take: The Auxiliary or Pilers - Nationstates updates two times a day (these two updates are known as minor and major) and during these periods every nation in a region has their endorsements calculated and the nation with the highest number of endorsements is made the WA delegate. Pilers do not have to be around during either update but rather need only check their email, forum PMs or nation telegrams to check if they need to move and reinforce a position during any given time. The benefit of being part of this division is that you are not required to be online at update and will be given a rank. It is notable that you will not gain promotions as fast as the second force, the updaters. Special Forces or Updaters - Updaters as mentioned above, are required to be online close to update so that they might move into a region at a given time. It is also generally a requirement that updaters have access to Discord, which is easily achieved by visiting the link at the top of the forums. Updaters will be promoted much faster than the Auxiliary and are also considered to be members the Auxiliary. Note that by being a member of the NPA, you will be required to create additional nations (puppets), transfer your WA membership from your main nation to those puppets, and move the puppets to other regions. Membership in more than one army is not allowed in the NPA. This may all seem a bit complicated and overwhelming but feel free to PM the Minister of Defense if you have any concerns or queries about what it all means and by all means, fill in the form the best you can in the interim. If you are interested in taking part in various missions in the name of The North Pacific, please fill out this form and take the oath correctly. Applications must take the form of: Code: Nation in The North Pacific: [nation]nation name here[/nation] Current World Assembly nation: [nation]nation name here[/nation] Previous NationStates military experience, if any: Other NationStates military or non-military organizations you are involved in, if any: I, [nation]nation name here[/nation], request to join The North Pacific Armed Forces. I pledge to serve our regions security and military interests. I pledge to obey all military rules and laws, as well as the laws of The North Pacific in my service in the military. I pledge to respect the chain of command, and my fellow officers at all times. I pledge my loyalty to the North Pacific Region, our people, and our government. Once your application is accepted and you have passed the necessary security checks by the admins you will receive a message from the Minister of Defense. Following that you may be remasked as a member of The North Pacific Army. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to PM/TG the Minister of Defense. Though Gladio is the OP, @Trondstorm is the standing Minister of Defense and concerns should be sent to him.
