Sadly, no. I have not endeavoured to watch it, nor read it. However, I could easily make a flag from some colours of your choosing, and that cool dragon insignia in the middle of your flag.

Try looking at the settings page. If you haven't unlocked it, they will tell you the requirements, if you just passed the requirement, there will ba a blank capital city option.

Maybe a month or two. Probably two.

Hello Balder! Europe is hosting a writing contest! Fell free to take a look:


Welcome to the European Writing Contest!
The European Home Office is happy and proud to announce our second first European Writing Contest! Unlike the previous attempt, we promise we’ll deliver an ending with actual awards to the contestants and a full showcase of every work we’ll receive. As the last time, this contest will be open to participants from other regions too! But now, let’s delve into how this will work!

When will it start and when will it finish?
The contest will start on November 24th. Contestants then have 20 days to submit your work until the deadline on December 14th 18:00 GMT+1. Then, on December 21th unless any major issue occurs, we will release a full showcase of all the submissions and announce the various award winners.

What kind of work do we want?
It can be anything: a poem, a short story, or even a brief essay; you just have to stick to the theme: Hope. Given the times in which we are living, we’d like to give positive vibes to everyone and try to look at a brighter future rather than to a gloomy present, so let us hear your most vibrant visions!

How can you participate?
Just send your work to Regnum Italiae, either by telegram on NationStates or by email at, as a text document within the time frame provided. You can use whichever format you prefer, but we think that either a PDF or Word file, or a Google document link may be more convenient and appropriate. Once the submission time is ended, Regnum Italiae will blind and pass the submissions to the judges.

Rules and Requirements
Apart from the theme, there are some generals rules to make your work valid for our contest:

  • Write in English. Don’t worry if you are not proficient with English, we won’t take grammar into account for the awards.

  • Keep it PG-13. So that everyone, regardless of age, can read it.

  • Keep it of a reasonable length. Generally speaking, do not exceed 3000 words, as we need to read all the works we receive in a reasonable timespan.

  • Don’t reveal your authorship. To keep the judges as impartial as possible.

  • Avoid plagiarism. Obviously, don’t try to copy the work of others.

  • Submit one work only. To be fair to everyone, multiple submissions are not allowed.

Finally, being a resident in Europe or not changes the awards you can win. To be considered a European participant you must either:

  • Have a WA nation in Europe,

  • Have an Order of Europe recognition, or

  • Have an active account on Europe’s Forum.

Judges and Awards
Our super-professional and mega-competent panel of judges is made up of some very well known members of our community:

Our judges will evaluate your submission and select the winners of our various awards such as: Overall Best, Best European Writing, Best Foreign Writing, Most Original Story, Best Character(s), Best Setting, and more!


For any further question, contact either Regnum Italiae, Republic of Satherland or South St Maarten, we are here to help you! See you soon!
