Nation name: La Joya
Population: 5,000,000
Claims: Central America, Southern Mexico. De facto control over northern South America.
Military forces: 270,300 combined total forces, 1.2 million paramilitary
Government: Constitutional Military Dictatorship
Economic system: Free market w/ government participation
Resources in surplus: Sugar, fruits & vegetables, timber, precious metals, petroleum, coal
Resources in scarcity: Water, hospitals, concrete,
History: Formed by a revolutionary group consisting mostly of cartel members and criminals, La Joya promised stability for El Salvador and many other surrounding Central American nations. Through a mass movement, they entrenched themselves in most of Central America, overthrowing the governments and installing a junta. La Joya is fairly lax as far as military dictatorships go, abiding by a strict constitution and allowing political discourse to a reasonable level. Perhaps as a byproduct, the government is fairly small. President Alicia Assis serves as leader and commander-in-chief, but the country is split up into districts that have their own governors that can field a small force and determine local laws. (Subject to change.)

    Ok, then I'll just take South Virginia. Will Richmond still be within my borders or no?
    Yeah, it's still in your borders

    Should we move this all to the Gathering Portal, @Gerrick?

    Also, the Signup thread and the OOC thread should be 2 different threads to avoid confusion and clutter.

    I'm 100% used to them both being the same thread???

    Anyways, I thought it'd be a neat idea if we had some character based elements to the story. I've always had a problem thinking of a good start for a nation RP and this came to mind. I by no means expect character based stories to be the sole stories of this RP, but I think introducing some average joes into the mix would be a nice break from the political and diplomatic intrigue that typically dominates nation RPs.

    The thing is as time goes on it might get a bit cluttered to have both the applications and the OOC in the same place. Hopefully, this RP will grow and that will lead to more players and even more chatter. It might become difficult to track where applications are and easy to lose track of OOC conversations.

    Sorry for the delay. This first post is a bit of a doozy, and I've been pretty busy lately. I'll have it up soon.

    Headcanon to Canon transmutation proposal:

    1. The actions of the New Holy Confederation of America has started a massive exodus of Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, and other minority faiths north into the territory of the American Lakes Union and Canada. Black people also, probably, idk.

    2. The ALU and the NHCA are very much aware of each other and (thanks to undefined historical events) aren’t on speaking terms, having left most of Appalachia as a de-facto DMZ/No-man’s Land between them. The ALU is absolutely fucking terrified of the NHCA, and the NHCA believes the ALU is a conglomeration of heathens and that they’re “up next”.

    Thoughts?

    Hey, hey, hey, we may be religous zealots but we do not judge based on race! We hate everyone equally. Also, christians would be fine.

    And the NHCA does not want to annex or attack the ALU, those Children of Sodom (their term for Northeners) can rot, especially since the NHCA still has a chip on their shoulder about "liberal elite heathens and their plague". No, the NHCA wants to annex someone else.

    The Volga Region, for now, is going to ignore the Americas, that is, until Europe has been, properly dealt with >:)

    @Ashton Mercer So, what do you suppose the event that caused a rift between our two countries should be? My suggestion is a expedition by the both of us, separately, into Maryland where they met and exchanged gunfire near Antietam. What do you think?
