Resources: Forum-Based Countries Information

Postby Moderation » Sat Jan 12, 2019 6:52 am

Forum-based countries (FBC or FBCs) are the countries shown in the large grey area on the eastern section of the in-game world map. FBCs are not playable in-game, but are playable in terms of roleplay; players can have full control over political, economic and other affairs but are restricted in terms of the cultural and historical background based on the descriptions provided in this thread, in accordance with Section 9 (Forum-Based Countries) of the Game Rules.

Traditionally, FBCs have been known by various names such as "former colonies" and the "Third World", meaning that historically FBCs were colonial possessions of the in-game countries but have been independent and independently developed since then, beyond their position as former colonies. FBCs partake in the World Congress and other intergovernmental organisations just like in-game countries and can even elect a representative for Seat E of the Security Council.

Players can request control of FBCs with the name of the country and a summary of the intended roleplay, here.

The map above was created by Pragma. Please note three countries have been renamed since the map was produced.
Bazgaristan is now called Yerrawa, Suyu Llaqta is now called Nsanlosa, and Utembo is now called Xsampa.

Midway
In-game account: http://classic.particracy.net/viewparty ... tyid=46058
Background: Midway is a former colony of Seko, ever since the construction of the Midway Canal the nation has played a pivotal role in Dovani economics as a whole. It has remained largely neutral in conflicts and does its best to continue its large financial success. Kunikata (Japanese) remains a widely spoken language alongside Luthorian (English) due to the importance of communication across the dozen or so ethnic groups that call Midway home. There is no clear "majority" ethnicity in Midway but dozens of ethnic communities: Dovani Majatran (African Arab), Kitembo (Swahili), Keobi (Igbo), Orun (Yoruba), Watembo (Somali), Huhoa (Hausa), Yingdalan (Chinese), Pilese (Sri Lankan/Maldivian/Mauritian combo), Phra (Thai), Mava-Neleyan (Indonesian Malay), Nelayan (Javanese) and Kahadean (Sundanese), New Aldurian (Haitian), Tropican (Polynesian), Manmerian (Papuan) and Malgy (Malagasy).
