Mapping Your State: The Third Edition
« on: December 19, 2017, 11:18:38 PM »
Map Current as of: 22 DEC 17

Establishing a Nation State (Country)

A player is limited to a starting country roughly the size of Kenya. Exceptions may be given if your territory covers large areas of unpopulated territory such as deserts or tundra, or you are wanting to RP a real world country or historic power. Posting in-character (IC) for your country can begin immediately after being approved for territory but a Country Factbook must be posted within two weeks of your territory approval. To note, you can request RL countries, such as Egypt or Gabon and the AS will map the appropriate provinces. Expanding your territory happens through roleplaying your country in the forums.

At the start of NSA 3.0., countries mapped on the NationStates.net Africa Region Page (NS.net) will be mapped here on the forum. These players will have three weeks from the point they are notified of of the NSA reboot to become active before they are demapped. Also of note, membership on NS.net and membership of the Africa region are not requirements but are strongly encouraged. This is to expand the number of active members we have and to keep it an exciting and diverse community.

What about those empty provinces? How are those treated? Generally, players should treat empty provinces as sovereign countries and neutral in world affairs. For RP and storytelling purposes, you can treat specific provinces as needed for your needs.

Mapping the World

The map has historically been maintained by a single person. If this person goes inactive, some else starts from scratch. Single-point-of-failure mapping is no more. The entire AS will be able to edit the map. It will be Microsoft Paint friendly so edits can be made quickly and posted in a timely manner. The new map will also use RL province boundaries so that players can easily identify what cities, etc., are included in a country (with a bit of research in the case of smaller RL countries).

Economic Maps


Below are links to maps with concepts new to NSA. They are economic maps. These are more for reference for RP purposes, and I foresee them being most useful in the World Marketplace and to a lesser extent, the Art of War. These maps can be used when determining your countries exports and import needs. They can also be used by the community when considering sanctions against a country.

Please map Moldova and the provinces colored in blue for Pridnestrova. I apologize for my lackluster paint skills. This is Praugsia, by the way. :-)

Great. I'll start my RP once I return home in a couple of days. Visiting the parents for the holidays and I don't have my laptop.

Let me know where you want to be mapped. The map has been shrunk to only include Africa and the Middle East for now.

I've decided on Jordan and the southern portion of the Sinai Peninsula, nation name Aqaba. I'll be home tomorrow so I'll begin my RP then.

Got a big request coming in: Please map me as "Suez Canal Company"

Lands marked in dark green should be hashed or however you want to do contested land. Regarding South Sinai, I shot a message over to Aqaba asking if they wanted work something out OOC regarding it. One of us will post an update here once we've figured out what we're doing.
