The Eglintonian Confederation, also known as Eglinton, is a centrist, capitalist, sovereign confederation located in North America, surrounding the Hudson Bay. The Eglintonian Confederation is often known for conscription and it’s colonial territories across the globe. The nation could be divided into 3 regions, Enfield, Ellestow, and The Northern Territories. The total land area of the Eglintonian Confederation is 5.542 million km2. It has multiple large cities, such as Hamilton, which is it’s capital city, and North Harvey.
Indigenous tribes, mostly the Eskimo, has occupied the nation’s territory for thousands of years, before the British Empire arrived to colonize the land. North Harvey, one of the main cities in the nation, was the first colony of the British Empire in Eglinton (Now Eglintonian Confederation). During that period, the British expanded the colony further around the Hudson Bay, attacking tribes that did not want to be colonized. After the expansion, the British secured North America by assaulting the French colonies. On June 22, 1956, the Eglintonian Confederation was peacefully released as a independent nation.
The Eglintonian Confederation is a parliamentary democracy. The nation’s head of government is the President (1970-2021), previously known as Governor-General (1956-1970). The nation could be governed by the parliament, which consists of the president, vice-president, prime minister, all ministers, and all local governors. The nation possesses some colonial territories, which are referred to as The Eglintonian Overseas Territories (EOT)

Multiple tribes, most notably the Eskimo has settled in the territory now known as the Eglintonian Confederation from 1000 BC until 500 BC. Most of these tribes kept to their own territory and they developed their own culture without any foreign influence. Some of the most known were the Eskimo, the Cree, and the Chipewyan, and they were considered the ’major tribes’. The smaller tribes were called the ’minor tribes’. In 1610, a British explorer called Henry Hudson made his way to the Hudson Bay, which he named after himself.
The next year, an expedition sent by the British Empire colonized parts of the Hudson Bay and Newfoundland. The colony was called the Dominion of Eglinton, and it’s largest city is North Harvey. On 1665, the French arrived and made multiple colonies along the eastern coast of the Hudson Bay. The native tribes disliked the French colonists because they were often found stealing their resources. On 1670, the French attacked multiple minor tribes, and they won in a few weeks. On the next few years, tensions between the French and British continued to rise, until war was declared by the British on 1685. The British won, but they lost many soldiers and equipment due to the war. During the peace conference, all French colonies was handed to the British securing British control in North America.

In the first year of the nation’s independence, the former British governor was elected as the Governor-General of the nation. Major reforms were made and multiple political parties were formed in the process. On 1970, the liberal party won the 3rd general elections for the first time. During this period, the Administrative reform was passed which changed the government structure of the nation, changing it into the government structure now known today. On 2019, the 12th general elections, which is the latest election, the Peter Wilson from the centrist party won. On 2021, an oil spill was discovered in the Eglintonian European Colony, which sparked some debate between environmentalists. In the same year, radiation was found at the coasts of the same region, which are currently thought to be the result of United-Viking testing of nuclear weapons in the Baltic Sea.
The Federal Council 2021, North Harvey.
The Government of the Eglintonian Confederation has varied throughout history. The Constitution, created with help by the British and adopted in 1848 is the foundation of the nation, which includes multiple core statements of how the government is structured and how it works. It was remade during the administrative reform of 1972, but the reform did not change it’s structure much. The Constitution is divided into three sectors, the Legislative Sector, the Executive Sector, and the Judicial Sector. The Legislative sector is further divided into the Federal Council and the State Council, while the Judicial Sector is divided into the Federal Court and the State Court.

The Legislative Sector’s main purpose is to create and pass legislations and laws for the nation. Laws and legislations that affect the entire nation is passed in the State Council, while laws and legislations that affect one region is passed in the Federal Council. While only the local governor and local ministers are present in the State Council, the Federal Council includes all local governors and the national ministers of each ministry. Most laws are passed in the State Council of one region before it is passed on into the Federal Council.
The Executive Sector manages the nation on a daily basis. The head of the Executive Sector is also the president, although before the administrative reform, it would be the governor-general. The president also has full command of the military and it’s facilities, although he would need a popular vote to do certain tasks with it’s power. The head of the executive sector (president) is not the head of the state, the head of the state is the entire parliament and the citizen’s vote. The Prime Minister and the Vice President are also included in the Executive Sector.
The Judicial Sector is a system that applies the laws passed by the Legislative Sector. If the law only applies in one region, it would be applied by the State Court. If the law applies in the entire nation, it would be applied by the Federal Court. Like the Legislative Sector, the State Court uses only the local judges and supervised by the law and order local minister, while the Federal Court uses judges from all regions and supervised by the law and order minister.
Many government members from all sectors would be from a certain political party, such as the Centrist Party, or rarely, the Socialist Party. Each political party has their own goals for the nation. The political parties could be divided into two parts, major political parties, which includes more popular political parties and minor political parties, which includes less popular political parties. The major political parties are the Centrist and Liberal Party, while the minor political parties are the Green and Socialist Party.
Inuit Special Territories
The Eglintonian Confederation is based around a capitalist system, although there are some regulations, mostly regarding the environment. The Eglintonian economy, which is now one of the largest economy in the world, is able to self-sustain itself, although it lacks in many industries such as mining, book publishing, and automobile manufacturing. The economy is mostly made up of the large retail industry, information technology industry, and furniture restoration industry. Another large industry, the arms manufacturing industry, is the reason the Eglintonian Confederation is a major military weaponry exporter. Some smaller major industries are the trout-fishing industry and the timber woodchipping industry, which dates back to 1611. On 1870, the Eglintonian Confederation experienced an industrial revolution, now considered a major milestone in the nation’s history, which shaped the Eglintonian economy now known today. The Eglintonian economy today is now known to be efficient and eco-friendly.
The Eglintonian Confederation is home to 22 million inhabitants with different ethnicities and culture. The Eglintonian Confederation has two main ethnicities, which are British and French. Citizens of British ethnicity could be commonly found throughout the entire nation, although most reside in the region of Enfield, or more precisely British Enfield, named after the first British colonist, Noah Enfield. Citizens of French ethnicity are less common, but they are extremely common in the region of Ellestow, or more precisely French Cartiere, named after the famous French colonist, Jacques Cartier. The Inuit and Eskimo could be found mostly in the Northern Territories, especially in the Inuit Special Territories with minimal British and French presence. Other ethnicities, such as German, are very rarely seen in the nation and considered minorities. The life expectancy of Eglintonian citizens is moderately high, with around 83 years.

Note: All my factbooks look better in light mode. Anyways, is there a way to change the color of ’background-block' if using dark mode? Like an 'if using light mode: color A, if using dark mode: color B’. If not, is there a way to remove the shadow and curved edge of a box / sidebar?
Its out of our control, we have over 6 billion people and are completely dependent on imports which take a while to come in
Maybe if you befriended more nations, preferably nations geographically closer to Ballistikov, that would be less of an issue.
Or, you know, try growing your own food. There's a crop for every type of soil and weather, and your people already endure enough hard labour to be naturally good at tending the fields.
Alright. Despite literally sleeping at 3:30 am, and getting only about 4 hours of sleep, I'm happy to say, I did well on my math test. It was easier than expected. Sure, it was difficult, but I expected a nightmare, but this was more of a bad dream rather than a nightmare, ya know?
Cool! Hopefully you get good grades. I am having a worse day however, As I fell down yesterday and my hand did the ''palm behind your wrist'' maneuver, normally this is fine but then it slammed down on the tile floor. Needless to say, My wrist is beaten up. At least it isn't my dominant hand so I could do my exam.
OOC: To be completely honest, even just the asteroid belt would probably supply the quarter million nations on NationStates decently well.
Rho Ophiuchi is ranked 13,696th in the world and 204th in the Pacific for Most Armed, with 5.27 Weapons Per Person.
OOC: Finally! A stat I am actually good in.
Novoblupolia is ranked 230,971st in the world and 6,032nd in the Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.12 Weapons Per Person.

At least its not a bone break (I hope).
Or it would've been more painful, and the more I tried to move it would be more pain. But its not like that so noice.
AMF - Automobile Manufacturing Front
The AMF, or Automobile Manufacturing Front, is the foremost "political party" in Rho Ophiuchi. They are backed by a coalition several large automobile companies, several mining conglometates who supply them, and a few large corporations from all over the manufacturing sector with aligning goals. This party is generally focused on loosening environmental and safety regulations, lowering taxes, and cutting everything out of the government budget except industrial subsidies and the military (military force requires tanks, which are really a kind of automobile). The AMF has seen several victories over the past two years, leading to the nation being ranked extremely highly in the industry of automobile manufacturing, among other things.
The AMF usually controls about 40% to 50% of the political capital.
SAL - Scientific Advancement League
The SAL, or Scientific Advancement League, are considered the main opposition party to the AMF. They are backed by the small-but-growing information technology sector, as well as many in retail, and a good portion of the gigantic Rho Ophiuchan chemical industry. This party stands mainly for trying to improve access and government funding for education, and loosening ethical guidelines for research, in the hopes that research programs will improve profit margins and the lives of the people in the future. The SAL has also seen several notable victories recently, with the nation's science progress going at almost three times the rate it was before, in stark contrast to the total stagnation that was the case over the nation as a whole for most of its history.
The SAL usually controls about 35% to 45% of the political capital.
FEG - Finance Enthusiasm Group
The FEG, or Finance Enthusiasm Group, is a minor party that still has a lot of political clout. They are backed mainly by the banking, real estate, insurance, and automobile sales industries, along with many wealthy individuals, and some random entities with similar interests. This party is mainly standing for lower taxes, less regulation of the finance industry, and fewer rights on the part of the consumer, in addition to increased government spending, with the government presumably taking on debt at exorbitant rates (from the Rho Ophiuchan finance industry, of course) afterwards. The FEG has recently been stagnating, and no one is quite sure when, if ever, it will make its major move.
The FEG usually controls about 8% to 12% of the political capital.
CAA - Coalition of Atomic Advancement
The CAA, or Coalition of Atomic Advancement, is similar to the SAL in its views, but focuses more on nuclear fission-related advancements, and loosening regulations around nuclear plants and radioactive materials, as well as the common theme of lowering taxes. They are backed by the Rho Ophiuchan energy industry, as well as several consumer products companies, including some automobile manufacturers, who want to use nuclear energy to improve their products. The CAA was a lot more important during the 2000s and 2010s, and were considered a major party for years, but the coup in September 2020 greatly weakened them, causing their rapid fall to minor party status over the following months.
The CAA usually controls about 4% to 6% of the political capital.
OOC: I finished my list of "political parties."
