Nation Applications

Nation Application Form

This is the place to apply for nations that you will like to play. You can find information on powerbases Here: http://qpawn.beardedfool.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=214&view=unread#unread
To see what has happened so far in Qpawn, look here

Please post your application with the following format:

Note: Basic Nations are available for new players who want to learn the game without diving into a nation that is heavily involved in world politics. They are also provided for players who have been booted from their current nation due to low popularity, players who fall into this category can then take another nation after 4 weeks. Experienced players make take these nations but we will endeavour to keep a couple free for new players.

Note: Basic Nations currently do not have military stats or budgets. These will be created if players stick with a basic nation for at least 6 game months. Please be aware that this may result in this information not being available for some time after you request it.

Note: Election countries will be selected through private applications to the Admin Council. The only difference between these nations applications and that of others is that they're private and that a news article will be posted with the outcome of the election on QNN. All applicants will be mentioned in this news article.

Note: We can now take deputy positions for Russia, the UK, and the United States only. You have to contact the person who is already in that nation if they would like you to be their deputy. They then pass the word to the moderators, who will then do what's necessary to make it official.

Note: For applications there is now a required 200 word explanation of how the nation will be played in the first few months as well as your longer-term intentions for the nation. Deviating significantly from this plan or failing to include things that would create considerable domestic unrest may result in being removed from a nation.

* Nations that may become available at the end of the week, since player in nation is inactive or about to be booted.

By way of explaining why we ask for two apps:

There are often any number of things under way that aren't public knowledge. Some of these involve player nations that don't have a player right now. If someone applies, we have to see how much extra work it would be to explain everything going on and write articles on the overhaul of direction if there are sharp differences. We may also have areas that actively need a player for various matters to go forward. Sometimes, some mods are just overwhelmed with players while another region is relatively quiet.

Also, sometimes an application just doesn't make sense or is flawed for some reason, often having to do with events earlier in the round deviating from real life.

Asking for two applications gives us some flexibility in determining where an applicant winds up. We always try to go with the first option first. There will be times when we go with the 2nd option for one reason or another though.

This has nothing to do with you in particular, or your app in particular. We used to ask for 3 nations, but have since been generous enough to cut it down to 2. Sometimes the two options still don't work out for some reason and we have to ask it be rewritten after pointing out bits of history that have happened in the round. By and large, 2 will do for us though. It helps players get a nation quickly and without too much hassle.

Hopefully you'll respect us enough after this explanation to understand that we have relatively few "dumb rules" around here. They exist for reasons that have to do with making things run smoothly. The game has been around for over a decade and has seen a lot of streamlining in recent years to make sure of that.

Admin should learn to read the LOA thread before doing this.

Player ID: David Coburn
Notable previous player roles: None

Nation #1: Ukraine
Character Name: Vladimir Lebenko
Powerbases (Pick Three): Russia, Party of Regions, Business
200 word explanation of your plans:

Make a solid agreement with russia over the price of gas to prevent anymore cuts like those in 2006 and 2009. Invest in cleaner energy, reducing the ukraines high dependancy on nuclear power, and invest in ways to generate more potable water, create laws to prevent deforestation and increase revenue created by natural resources. Maintain strong bonds with the old allies of russia and poland but also generate new friendships with other nations where benefit for the ukraine can be seen. Continue to become a member of the European Union. Continue to use the military as a force for good and peacekeeping, however at the same time improvements must be made to the military to deal with the possibility of war and if necessaryto defend the ukranian people. Help spread Ukranian products, such as antonov aircraft, worldwide rather than have them limited to former soviet nations.

Nation #2: Norway
Character Name: Harald Riise
Powerbases (Pick Three): Nobility, Progress Party, Business
200 word explanation of your plans:
Liase with Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Iceland and the Faroe Islands to try and form a Scandanavian Union where all coutries will be encouraged to increase trade using a similar model to the european union. Increase trade ties with the west particularly in oil. Pull any remaining Norwegian Army Troops out of afghanistan and relocate them to defend norway. Improve the military by setting a budget aside to upgrade and increase numbers or personel and equipment. Push to create norway a trully green nation by increasing the amount of electricity generated by norway to being 100% renewable. Encourage growth in southern norway by attempting to get major companys to choose norway to place factories and use northern norway to generate revenue through tourism. Hold a referendum for the norwegian people to decide whether it is the time to join the EU.

Nation #1: Turkey
Character Name: Ali Babacan(RL Deputy Prime Minister of Turkey responsible for the economy)
Powerbases (Pick Three): Justice and Development Party, Middle Class, Sunni Islam
200 word explanation of your plans: Babacan realizes that North Kurdistan is a hopeless cause, and he will push for a peace treaty to create its independence. However, he is pissed off about the situation in general, so he will move to punish those involved, and he especially hates Iran. Babacan will try to negotiate a peace treaty with North Kurdistan that will get Kurdish recognition of Northern Cyprus, and that will permanently not allow foreign troops inside of North Kurdistan, especially Iranian. He will also try to make sure North Kurdistan does not unite with the other Kurdistans. He will also try to make a true peace in the region, without Iranian or UN involvement, as in his words, Iran is the dog of the devil.

Babacan, after that, will also try to reincorporate islam into society. He will try(desperately) to break the stranglehold of secularism in Turkish society. He will do things like overturn the ban on headscarves in public places, and use his wish to make Turkey a perfect, muslim society. Islamist, but without hating Israel or the United States basically.

If there's still time, he will also try to find a solution to the Cypriot problem. He will try to make sure that Northern Cyprus can be recognized by many nations, and use things like it is a democracy to form a two-state solution to that problem.

OOC: I know the round is ending, but if you would like a Turkey to end it... I am here.

Nation #2: Stay as Germany

Nation: Turkey
Name: Emre Muhammed
Powerbases: Justice and Development Party, Middle Class, Sunni Islam
Emre means "friend" and that is what Emre will try to do: Turkey must be able to end the conflicts that surround her without losing her place in the Muslim world. To do this she must reach out to her Sunni friends. He will ask for a peace treaty to create North Kurdistans independence, and then keep the nation neutral.

Economically he will try and break free of focusing on serving the European economy, and instead try to focus on internal development and exporting. This may include increasing tariffs as well as increasing the amount of savings that go into the economy. In this way, like China and Iran, Turkey may become a net-lender.

He will wipe out military costs by decreasing the size of the military and using this change to enact reforms and infrastructure building projects, especially those that were damaged in the war. Indeed, to fix the war he will also create a system that allows for the Kurds still living in Turkey to find a compromise between bullets and rebellion, using economic incentives.

He will also make a peace treaty with Romania; one the punishes them for their actions and use this retribution to help rebuild Turkey. However, peace is his primary goal.



Nation: Syria
Name: Bashar al-Assad
Powerbases: Military, State Security, Baath Party - Tradition
Description:
Kurdistan's independence in the north, fomented by little positive economic change in Syria's homeland and Kurdistan's own desperate economic problems, have caused the military to return Bashar to power after some no-name President somehow got into office by mere change. Bashar will not take the situation lightly, and plans on putting down the problems of Syrian society.

He plans on focussing on Arab unity to solve the problems that he is facing, mainly Kurdistan, and plans on working with other nations, like Egypt, to solve the problem.


Nation: Romania
Name: Nicolae Carpathia
Powerbases: Europe/EU, Russia, Humanitarians
Description:
Allowed to return from New York, Carpathia was able to make a deal with the Russians: the Optimaists were simply lodged in the system, and though they had no real leader, they did have a cause (Iapetus had made powerful local policy changes by empowering optima-ists at the local level). He plans on complying with Russia's demands concerning the borders of the region, while carving out an independent economic policy that lets Romania get out of the war-situation with growth. He wants to renegotiate Romania's entrance into the European Union and out of suspension, without giving up too much of the economic benefits that its suspension gave.

He wants to amend the Constitution to limit the size of Romania's military.

QID: Menzies, making this app via. QAET

Nation: Turkey
Name: Emre Muhammed
Powerbases: Justice and Development Party, Middle Class, Sunni Islam

Nation: Nigeria
Name: Goodluck Jonathan
Powerbases: Military, Business, Centrist (PDP)
Description: As President of Nigeria, my job will be to set the stages for economic growth: we will decrease public debt, increase savings, lower inflation, and begin a process of making sufficient investment capital ready.

Of course, we will also be dealing with corruption and the ethnic splits in Nigeria. Corruption falls into two categories: oil and bureacratic. The first deals with the fact that much of Nigeria's oil revenue goes into the pockets of corrupt officials or favored tribes. We will create, with OPEC or the African Union, some sort of way to regulate this. The second deals with the fact Nigeria was born with a horrible bloated bureacracy. We have to cut it, and rebuild it, from scratch.

Neither of the former Nigerian plays did, according to their domestics, all that much. So I doubt Nigeria will be very different from the place I have to research.

I plan on playing this a bit like Meddy did in Russia, that is, look to change the way the game is played in the nation in RL.
