Map of Artemia
Information and Claims

1. What is this?

You are in the thread dedicated to the Map of Artemia. While our region is called Selene, we call the planet Artemia, and Selene instead is a country in the planet. It can get slightly confusing at first, but you'll get the hang of it. We do all our official roleplaying (also known as canon) based on this map, so if you want to participate in our world, you need to claim one of the available plots on the map.


2. How do I claim a plot?

Please follow the following process to claim a plot on the map:
  1. Create a forum account through the Registration page.
  2. Copy the application form below into a Reply to this thread.
  3. Fill out the form as truthfully as possible and post it.
Code:
[b]MAP APPLICATION FORM[/b]

[b]1. Nation Name:[/b] [nation]XXXX[/nation]
[b]2. Foreign Involvements and Aliases:[/b] XXXX

[b]3. Country Name:[/b] XXXX
[b]4. Plot Number:[/b] XXXX
[b]5. Capital City:[/b] XXXX
[b]6. Additional Cities:[/b] XXXX

[b]7. Country Equivalent:[/b] XXXX

3. How do I fill out the application form?

Glad you asked! Here are some useful tips on how to fill out the application form:
  • Where you see XXXX, replace it with the information that is being asked.

  • In Nation Name, indicate the name of your nation in Selene.
  • In Foreign Involvements and Aliases, indicate in which other regions you are involved (if any) and any other names by which you are known there.

  • In Country Name, indicate the name of your country in the map, which may be different to your nation in Selene.
  • In Additional Cities, you can indicate up to five cities, aside from your capital, that will appear on the map.
  • Make sure to indicate both the name and approximate location of each city. Please don't ask me to pick a location for your cities. If you do, I just won't include them on the map.

  • In Country Equivalent, you have to indicate the real country whose culture and/or ethnicity most similar to your roleplayed country. If you have a country called Testlandia, and it's most similar to France, you should indicate that. Please keep in mind that choosing the United States will not make your country a superpower.
4. Do I need to follow any rules?

We do have a few rules that you need to follow. Our main rule is the golden rule: don't be a dick. Aside from that, we have some rules that are specific to the map applications process:
  • We have a Climate Classifications Map. Use it to check if the plot you want has the correct climate for the kind of country you have in mind.  Refer to this article (or this simpler version) for information on how to read the map.
  • We also have an Ethno-Linguistic Map that details where each major ethnic and linguistic group is located. Make sure that your country and its city names fit with its ethno-linguistic region.
  • You may only claim one plot. * Attempting to claim additional plots by creating additional accounts or using proxys/VPNs will be severely penalised with the removal of your plot and potential ban from the region. **
  • You will be removed from the map if you cease to have a nation in Selene, or if you fail to participate in roleplay at least twice each month. You can request a leave of absence by posting in this thread, but it cannot be for a period longer than one month.

    * You will see that a few members do control a second country on the map. While claiming a second plot is possible, that is only done for experienced roleplayers who have already proven to be active and responsible with their initial claims.
    ** Since we cannot tell for sure who's the one behind the computer, excuses such as "this other account belongs to my sibling/friend" cannot be trusted, and will be treated as if the person were trying to circumvent the limit.

5. Could I be removed from the map?

We conduct activity checks at the start of every month. You will be removed from the map if any of the following happens:
  • You cease to have a nation in Selene.
  • You have not participated in roleplay at least twice in the past month.
  • You have engaged in repeated and unrepentant rules violations.
You may be exempt from the second requirement if you request a leave of absence in this same thread. A leave may not be longer than one month, and cannot be requested multiple consecutive times. You will also be removed from the map  if the Privy Council determines that you are not using your leave of absence rights in good faith or if you repeatedly post the bare minimum only right before the activity check. You have the right to contest a removal from the map. A removal due to inactivity does not involve an expulsion from the region, nor does it forbid you from reapplying.

If you are removed for a second time, you will not be allowed to reapply for the map. This does not prevent you from participating in other aspects of the region.

6. What should I do while my application is processed?

Unless you are a banned user or are found to already have a plot with another account,  your application will be accepted and processed over the weekend. That means you will have to start participating! Here are some tips on what you could start doing:
  • Fill out the Global Information Survey:
    Every roleplayer is required to fill out the Global Information Survey (GIS) within one week of applying for the map. Its purpose is to help you figure out the basics of your country, while having the assistance of someone experienced. As soon as you post your submission you will be assigned a Companion, an experienced roleplayer who will be tasked with checking your submission and helping you adjust it. It's alright if you're not an expert in determining most of these statistics, since the Companion is assigned precisely so you can get help with someone more experienced.

    In addition, your Companion is your main contact point within the region, and will always be happy to help you get a feel of how to get involved, who to approach for ideas, and overall how to get settled in the region. If you ever have questions about what you can do or how you can do it, for example about how to start roleplaying, or if you have comments about how Selene is doing, your Companion is the first person with whom you can talk.

    Please keep in mind that failure to fill out the Survey will lead to the rejection of your map application.

  • Post in Flash News:
    A good way to introduce your country to the world is to post in Flash News, a thread that allows you to post one-line news items about your country. If you are brave enough, head over to The City Criers and start your own newspaper thread, where you can post news articles from your country!

  • Contact your Neighbours:
    Unless you pick a particularly isolated plot, you are bound to have neighbours. You can reach out to them on the Regional Chat to talk about signing treaties, forming alliances, working out your joint history or just roleplaying some interesting event that might be happening. You could be allies, you could be rivals, you could be something in between. There is always something to do, if you are creative enough.
7. Anything else?

There is much to do besides roleplaying. You could join the Royal Marines and help defend the regions of NationStates from raids and other attacks. You could join the Regional Government and help govern the region, maybe even run for office in our next scheduled election! You could be an active member in our Regional Message Board, keeping the region visibly active for all our newer members. There are countless possibilities. Or, if you have questions, you could always head over to the Chat and ask anyone there. We are always happy to help in any way we can, or at least point you in the direction of someone who can help.

Welcome to Selene!

Plot Size and Ownership Information

Here you will find a table that details the size and ownership information of every plot in the map. You can use it for all your roleplaying purposes, including but not limited to making an informed decision when claiming plots, knowing who owns each plot, retrieving the area of your plot when filling out the Global Information Survey, and all other purposes you deem appropriate.

You are both accepted. Please make sure to fill out the Global Information Survey, so you can be assigned a Companion and you can start roleplaying. Let me know if you have any questions or doubts about the region; I'm always happy to answer.
