A new map update has been delivered by Coro, to brighten our mood! A rule addition will be published by him as well, please stand by.


As always, we will also require 30 RP posts with a new nation for it to be placed on the map. This was a rule before and has now been reintroduced, to make sure that the workload of adding a new nation will be justified. As before, you can start roleplaying as if you were placed - in that sense, it’s not that different from how it has been in recent times for other reasons. If you do not find your nation on this map, there is a good chance that it might be due to this new rule. Continue playing and you will soon find yourself on the map! Also if any requests from the previous thread have been overlooked or wrongly interpreted, please post your requests once more in this thread.

We will try to keep up a reasonable pace of at least monthly updates.

Applying for a MAP SPOT (AFTER 30 RP POSTS) :-

Location :-
Name of Country :-
Capital :-
Location of Capital :-

Additional Major Cities and Locations :-

To protect the fairness of our game, please make all requests for alteration to the map publicly. The Mapmaker will not make changes based on IRC, PM, Skype or any other private or offsite conversations. We will not accept requests forwarded anywhere other than official public map threads.

INACTIVITY & DISCLAIMER

Role play activity will prevent deletion from the map, there is no minimum activity needed to prevent removal as it is due to Mapmaker discretion, though an announcement of departure in the Absence Thread will excuse a drop off of activity. Prior to removal, the inactive player will usually be placed on the Inactivity Listing, allowing new players to assume their map spot should the player not return to in-character activity. The Mapmaker & Administration can remove, edit, add, or deny changes to the map based on existing rules or past lessons learned - clarification on the reasoning of these exceptional decisions can and will be given upon reasonable inquiry.

INACTIVITY LISTING

Any and all nations on this listing can be removed and replaced by a new player upon request for a map spot :-

For convenience: can a direct url be posted in the future? This way we don't have to download or sign-in somewhere else. =)

Hi, if you could add Virumaa on the map, that would be great. The cities would be:
Red: Kuressaare, capital;
Orange: Kerdla, under 2.5 million;
Brown: Raasiku, under 2.5 million;
Purple: Loksa, under 2.5 million;
Green: Imavere, over 2,5 million;
Pink: Vendra, under 2,5 million;

Ignore the Greyed out area, I thought of that for Milesia, but didn't observe that you added it as an island.

Edited to fit with guidelines.

1. What is the name of your Nation-State, Colony or Expansion?
SRC Asteria
2. What is the year of your foundation, recognition or colonization?
1956 as socialist state, 1650's as Kingdom, prior as var. city states and peripheral territories.
3. Who are the leaders of this application? (≈100 words)
Red Column as a Marxist-Serazinist Party controls a single party, semi-presidential socialist confederation, current President is Dio Dal Sol.
4. Please outline the general history of your application: (500 - 600 words)
Monarchy begins to integrate various city-states and Duchies approximately in 1650's, but remains a loosely configured nation with exceptional power given to local lords. Lacking the power to fully centralize, it continues in this form until the late 18th century. Reforms to centralize the state are met with resistance, and when Auraria begins its revolution, lesser nobles are eager to abandon titles and attempt to take advantage of the system, leading to calls for aid and an intervention by the Aurarian revolutionary forces. Auraria executed the King and royal family, leading to a period of chaos that shocks the monarchic world, and becomes the catalyst for a Serenierre intervention. The Serenierre intervention ultimately defeats the Aurarian revolution and re-establishes a Kingdom in Asteria, however the illegitimate and foreign cultured King, and incomplete restoration of direct rule over many lesser rural territories, results in a significant rise in brigandry and lawlessness. Asterian corsairs begin raiding the Claret Sea in the mid to late 19th century, but are put down by Retalian and Pelasgian navies of the course of some decades, especially as a bourgeois class based in Remuria begins to centralize power under the noses of the nobility. The King becomes little more than a puppet, the First Minister gains deep connections with fledgling companies, many of which are deeply tied to Retalian and Aurarian interests, until the [late 1940's] when a revolution begins. The revolution occurs during a period of instability/fatigue/cold war in neighboring nations, who elect to not participate directly and instead influence the result. Serazinist-Autonomist forces come out on top, in large part thanks to a the direct intervention of Serenien military units as "international volunteer brigades" who are able to put down a strong Leninovist uprising in Montedoro and restore the status quo there, while Asterian brigades topple the rest of the Kingdom. A Revolutionary Referendum is held across 6 newly declared states, with 5 states ratifying the Articles of Revolution in 1956-1958, and Montedoro electing to remain a monarchy and protectorate of Serenierre. This status is settled by Serenierre, who persuades the Confederacy to pursue the matter no further.
5. Consider the cultural implications of your application. What does your application bring to the world? Are there other nations of similar culture? • How do you differentiate, or if you are unique, how so?: (200 - 300 words)
SRC Asteria best approximates Yugoslavia, being a nation between Spanish and Italian culture. With Retalia, a roughly Italian nation east, and Auraria, a loosely Occitanian/Spanish/Catalan nation to the West, Asteria represents a breadth of potential cultures in between. This idea comes in part from a "What if the Italian microstates did not unify into a centralized state, did not adopt Tuscany Italian dialect as a national dialect, and maintained unique local traditions and heritages?"
6. How else might this application help RP or contribute to the community? (100 - 200 words)
Adds an additional M-S pan-Gallian socialist state to Gallian region, to provide alternative flavor to Serazinism, flesh out the "Tiburan" cultural spectrum better, and provide additional strength against Kadiki influential encroachment on the region.
7. Please provide a link to a relevant wiki or thread. (1 minimum - Must be individually tailored, not a single post)
8. Please provide precise verbal or graphic instructions for your application. (Failure to do this will invalidate the application)

1. What is the name of your Nation-State, Colony or Expansion?
Republic of Mompracem

2. What is the year of your foundation, recognition or colonization?

05-5-1960 d-m-y as a indipendent nation

3. Who are the leaders of this application? (≈100 words)

Mathéo Bacque is the president of the republic, son of a local family who generated numerous village chiefs, he studied in gallia, before returning to his homeland and devoting himself to politics.

4. Please outline the general history of your application: (500 - 600 words)

In 1819, Compagnie d’Orient, a trading companies and private wealthy merchants dicovered the archipelago, Constantin Dembélé was in charge of the expedition. The islands was home to numerous local fishing villages which, following the discovery of the archpellago, came into contact for the first time with "white" people. The archipelagos had been explored for several years before being completely mapped and claimed by the commercialcompany.

With the foundation of the first Gallian settlement in the archipelago, called Mopra, the archipelago was hit by a massive emigration that brought the local population to 80,000 in 1860. Half of the inhabitants were of gallian and justosian origins, displaced due to the presence of banana plantations and pearl fishing. As the population grew, the interests of the Compagnie d’Orient, a private commercial organization, grew accordingly and often went to the detriment of plantation workers, who had no basic rights here. The situation became unsustainable in the late 1890s. When, under the directive of the governor's office, chosen by the Central Asian trading company, working hours were doubled to counter the drop in fruit prices and poor quality of pearls.

In the months following the introduction of the new working hours, the archipelago was shaken by numerous violent riots, which led to the deaths of several thousand plantation workers and hundreds of European citizens. The riots stopped when the local army changed sides following the order to shoot more than a thousand workers on strike. The local commercial direction was placed under arrest, many of the traders, who held political roles, fled safely to their home countries. All freed following the return of the royal fleet. Following the armed uprising, Petits-Pays decided to restore order in the archipelago, releasing the commercial partner from the administration and establishing a government of its own. The first laws protecting the local population were introduced, but the desperation of rights was still enormous.

Independence will take place following numerous protests and strikes in 1960. The authorities made it possible to organize a referendum, which ended with 87% in favor of independence.

5. Consider the cultural implications of your application. What does your application bring to the world? Are there other nations of similar culture? • How do you differentiate, or if you are unique, how so?: (200 - 300 words)

Mompracem is a small nation and is the first to be of Polyneasic culture. My intention is to create a nation base and then deepen the enormous contrasts and encounters that have come about in the archipelago. Especially on a cultural level.

6. How else might this application help RP or contribute to the community? (100 - 200 words)

It is the first nation of Polynesian culture. I don't have much to add, if not "Tourism"?

7. Please provide a link to a relevant wiki or thread. (1 minimum - Must be individually tailored, not a single post)

1. Susman Archipelago (Unincorporated Territories of the Confederacy)

2. Claimed 1838, Officially Claimed 1852

3. The leadership of the Susman Archipelago falls under the Sovereignty of the Confederate State so its head of State and Government is Chancellor Rebecca Daniel, however it has two Governors. Governor Lani Akina of Triswell Island, and Governor Aloalo Makana for the rest of the Susman Archipelago.


4. In 1838 the Susman Archipelago was claimed by a confederate Whaling vessel under ownership of captain James Waring. It was not until after the division of the Confederacy into the states of Johnston Island and Clarenthia that the Confederacy acted and claimed the Archipelago as Confederate territory in 1852. The islands became a vital stopping point on the trans-Implarian trade route helping boom the economy of the small islands. The first permanent military facility was opened on Triswell Island in 1874, bringing a permanent military garrison to the island chain. At the turn of the century, the idea of controlling the seas and therfor access to Clarenthia to bring it back into the Confederacy had all but waned as officials realized it was a fruitless dream. The Island chain to this day relies upon tourism and the military garrison for economic activity on the Islands.

5. The closest culture I can currently think of on the map would be that of Touzen. The people of Susman Archipelago would be closest to the Rl people of the Marianas and Guam, with perhaps hints of other pacific islands. Land ownership is prohibited by non-natives, it can however be leased by non-native peoples. So it carries a slightly different tone to a traditional colony.

6. Hopefully it can help bring some of the Rp towards the Implarian instead of being heavily focused around the Claret Sea. Currently the Implarian is a very dead region of Rp.

7. I will be working on this and link it back here after I get it done sometime this weekend/week depending on how work treats me for time.

8. The lovely little group of Islands at the far south-eastern reaches of the Implarian, that don't include the Mompracem claim. as I was writing this Lars posted his as well lol. We can make it work however so it works for both in a nice cooperative manner.

Hey! I understand I still haven't posted over 30 RP posts yet, but hopefully I will soon. So in case here's my map request:

Location :-

You must be registered for see images

Name of Country :- Kingdom of Andreapol
Capital :- Andreapol
Location of Capital :-Red

Additional Major Cities and Locations :- Green - Duagava, Violet - Staritsa, Blue - Verkhnyadzvinsk, Yellow - Izborsk. Orange is an island that was claimed by @Virumaa first, but then we agreed it would be a shared territory between our two states on somewhat Svalbard type of policy. If it's technically possible then I would like to have a small town named Pitkyrandu there in the North of the island.

I'm going to put down a claim for some land, the map is already included in the worldbuilding thread for Eserland but I'll repost it here. I understand someone else might have claimed this area before but I have been told they are inactive so I hope it's ok!

I would like to make it known that there is no such thing as a pre-claim request. There is a set process in which players are required to make their applications. There is no process for dibs. You cannot set a towel on the pixels in the morning that you’d like to use later in the day. Consider this notice that no players will be considered in any pre-claim formats. I ask that players follow the recommended application formats as seen prior in this thread. Thank you.

Really appreciate the addition of more large bodies of water in my neighborhood of the map. Will see about trying to justify it with some RP focus.

Just two small requests, if you could rename Puno to Parow and secondly, which isn't as important but I wonder if you could rename the Cantignian Sea into the Indala Sea. I know the Cantignian one has a personal and emotional value as a tribute to the great RP Kyle did as Cantignia, but I was wondering if you could either move it more towards the south or Justosia, and have the Indala Sea south of Natal.

I threw it out there when we were searching for a quick name: I have no emotional tie, so if there is a superior current RP based name then please replace it! :vuvuzela:

1. What is the name of your Nation-State, Colony or Expansion?
Hesperia

2. What is the year of your foundation, recognition or colonization?
1799

3. Who are the leaders of this application? (≈100 words)
HoS/HoG: Directory, presided over Torcuato Tasso Croes (president, but is a position without formal power)
Legislative branch: Popular Junta
Ruling party: Patriotic Front, a political coalition built around Croes's Party for a United Hesperian Fatherland

4. Please outline the general history of your application: (500 - 600 words)
WIP but colonised by Salen, Nedernesia (?), Auraria (?), Madurja in 1600s, independence around 1800, forged into a unity through the wars of conquest of an Occidental Napoleon, Aeneas Valk, between 1800 and 1836. Under Engellkin commercial and cultural domination until 1890s, when new, nationalist, whites-dominated Third Republic formed, mainly in a political deal between whites in a bid to get rid of Engellkin commercial dominance and keep the Coloured/Creole and indigenous majority from taking over. Never any open apartheid or segregation, but nevertheless political, cultural and economic life dominated by whites. This status quo overthrown in May Revolution of 1969, which sees rise of Patriotic Front and founding of Fourth (current) Republic in 1972. Since then, Creoles have dominated political and cultural life, and have pursued a policy of development meant to take over economic and cultural life too.

5. Consider the cultural implications of your application. What does your application bring to the world? Are there other nations of similar culture? • How do you differentiate, or if you are unique, how so?: (200 - 300 words)
Is a Creole so mixed nation, the product of centuries of settlement, slavery and interaction between indigenous Hesperians, Salians, Gallo-Germans, Himyarite slaves and Engellkin. Would bring into the world a developing country in the West, with a unique culture and connections to all the major continents.

6. How else might this application help RP or contribute to the community? (100 - 200 words)
C'mon Coro, do you want me to RP or not? Rather than fill in tax forms?

7. Please provide a link to a relevant wiki or thread. (1 minimum - Must be individually tailored, not a single post)

8. Please provide precise verbal or graphic instructions for your application. (Failure to do this will invalidate the application)
Brace yourself, this is gonna be ugly. It's basically Entre Ríos's old spot, plus that ugly orange-shaded clay I added in amateurish fashion.
