The South Pacific map and the canon world

The map shows a portion of Pacifica, the planet that all canon modern technology roleplays take place on. It has the same size as real-life Earth. There is more land on Pacifica, but we have limited roleplay to this specific area (meaning we don’t normally interact with the rest of the planet). Read more about Pacifica and its solar system and find additional world maps in World maps further down below.

New player…?

…and you want to start roleplaying? First of all: Welcome! A good way of getting involved is to claim a plot and found your own nation. How? Scroll down or use the table of contents to see “How to make a claim”! It is also recommended that you read the Getting Started Guide for some useful roleplaying tips and community rules.

Not the setting you were looking for?
If sci-fi or fantasy is your cup of tea, we have separate canons for them:

Some statistics

  • There are 230 plots in total, of which 117 were taken 5 December 2022.
  • The highest number of claimed plots is 198, version 3.2.20 May 2021 and 3.2.21 June 2021.
  • The map has been in use since 11 November 2013.
  • The following is the number of plots on each continent:
    • Bailtem: 59
    • Bareland: 31
    • Central Islands: 6
    • Cordilia: 77
    • Crabry: 12
    • Keyli: 24
    • Rainbow Islands: 21

This map was made by the amazing Kyle (Brutland and Norden), was maintained and updated by snuggly former Chief Cartographer Rhinotaz (Noctenos), who was succeeded by Qwert. There are now four map managers: @LordGianni, @Pronoun, @Qwert and @Besern.

How to make a claim

Who can claim a plot?
Anyone with a nation in the region the South Pacific on the NationStates site with an intent to join the roleplay here on the forums.

If your nation ceases to exist or moves to another region, your claim will not be added. If you have plots, they will be removed from the map to free space for others. So please stay! Some nations have a protected status (“permanence”) which means that they stay on the map despite not being compliant any more.

Refer to the full rules listed below.

Can I have more than one plot?
Yes, you can have three plots in total, but there is a “cool down” once you’ve been granted a plot. Three months after you were granted your first plot, you can claim a second. After an additional three months, you may claim a third plot. Let us exercise common courtesy and refrain from hoarding plots. Please state in your claim whether you have plots since before.

My main NationStates nation is in another region, but I also want to play in TSP, can I claim a spot too?
If your main nation resides in another region and you want to join us here in the South Pacific, you may have a spot in the regional map. Again, the minimum requirement must be fulfilled: you must have a nation in the South Pacific.

When will my claim be added to the map?
The map is updated as often as the map managers are able. We anticipate a few days or a week waiting time. A common mistake is posting a claim for a plot that looks unclaimed on the map but that actually already has been claimed by someone else since the last update. Please make sure that the plot you want hasn’t been claimed by someone else, but not added yet, to make sure the plot really is free. This requires you to read a couple of the last pages in this tread.

How to claim your spot on the map:
Copy the form found inside the code box below and fill it out, and then post it in this thread. Fields with an asterisk (*) are mandatory fields. Remember to check the thread after you’ve posted your claim to see if there’s information concerning your claim and to fulfil the requirements.

If you want you can prepare your claim by editing the plot you want in the sandbox version of the map! Remember to sign out from your Google account so that your email address isn’t logged.

I confirm that I have:
[] read the instructions
[] the intent to participate in roleplay in the Pacifica canon
[] made sure that the plot hasn't been claimed by someone else
[] given each plot I claim a separate name

(Mark with X)

Customisation
Under the Customisation, you can put cities that you want in your plot, along with corresponding locations. You may also name geographical features (lakes, bays, mountains, mountain ranges, rivers) located entirely within your plot claim.

Land can be removed, if it doesn’t contain elevated terrain, but can’t be added. National borders can’t be moved or removed. Lakes can be added. We will try our best to accommodate your customisation requests. Remember, the more precise your request is, the easier it will be for us to add it as you want it to be.

Disclaimer: We reserve the right to modify or reject overly complex requests that might compromise the aesthetics of the map, or, honestly, just be simply absurd.

You may also refer to the sample claim below for the sample nation included on the map. You may copy the format so you will get similar results. Or you can put in a sketch/drawing of the features you want to be included in a map. And please, remember to make sure the plot you want hasn’t already been claimed by someone else, but not yet added on the map.

Rules governing plot ownership

Click to view the complete rules

1. Eligibility
The following criteria must be met to be granted a plot on the map of the South Pacific:
a) the player has a nation on NationStates in the region of the South Pacific and the intent to roleplay in the Pacifica canon on the forum
b) the claim is posted in the official map topic
c) the plot being claimed must not be claimed by someone else
d) the player does not already have more than two plots

2. Additional plots
Players may have up to three plots in total. The following criteria in addition to I. Eligibility must be met to be granted additional plots:
a) for a second plot, the player must already have one claim added on the map, and three (3) months must have passed since the player’s first claim was added
b) for a third plot, the player must already have two claims added on the map, and six (6) months must have passed since the player’s first claim was added

3. How to claim
To claim a plot on the map, a form that is provided in the map topic is to be used, which should be filled out completely.

4. Plot customisation
a) The name of the nation does not need to be the name of the NationStates nation, but it needs to sound like an actual nation name. Not providing a realistic nation name or a solid reasoning as to why the nation is called the way it is called may lead to the cartographer deciding on a more reasonable nation name or to the complete rejection of the claim. A request can be posted to change the name provided by the cartographer, or if the claim was rejected, the form can be resubmitted with a different name.
b) Up to three cities per plot (apart from the capital) and three major rivers may be added per plot. Names for bays, mountain ranges or plains can be added without restrictions. An area that has an elevation of 0-300 m can have a smaller area of 300-600 m elevation added on top of it.
c) Plots can be split so that they contain several nations (controlled by one player) or states (one nation controlled by one player or a conglomerate of members), which can be named too.
d) It is under the cartographer’s volition to reject requested details for compromising the aesthetics of the map, e.g. taking up too much space or being absurd.

5. Removal of claims
a) The following are the conditions under which a claim shall be removed from the map. Map managers can be lenient at their own discretion, allowing claims to remain on the map that belong to players who they believe still will be active in Pacifica roleplay.

  1. the owner requests it, or
  2. the provided NationStates nation doesn’t reside in TSP (“not in region”, “NIR”), or
  3. the provided NationStates nation ceased to exist (“CTE”) at least 30 days ago

b) There may be occasions when all players are asked to confirm that they are interested in keeping their plot(s). A player not providing a confirmation results in their claim(s) being removed.

6. Permanent nations
a) In order to preserve the common regional canon history when a claim meets the removal criteria, they may be protected from removal as “permanent nation(s)” under the following conditions:

  1. the nation they belong to has played a crucial role in the IC history of several nations that belong to active roleplayers, and/or
  2. has had a leading role in the establishment and/or roleplay of a canon international organisation or equivalent

b) It is under the map management’s volition to grant nations permanence. Players can nominate other players’ nations for permanence.

  1. “Nation with major significance” - all plots the player has claimed remain on the regional map. The status is granted to all nations with major significance to the canon’s history, e.g. main participants of the GW or groups of nations that developed a solid common history for a region on the map (e.g. X-Med, X-Frastinia)
  2. “Nation with referencial significance” - the nation with referencial significance will be removed from the regional map, but they can still be considered to exist and canon in another part of the world on the extra-TSP lands (e.g. nowadays inactive WF founding states, IUFA/PSC participants), because they are continuously referenced in RP in that capacity. The status can be granted retroactively.
  3. Permanent nations and their status will be shown on the forum and/or TSPedia.

Permanent nations

Some nations that are deemed too important for the community’s canon history can be granted “permanency”, which means that they stay on the map after the NS nation no longer is in TSP (the claims related to them stay on the map). The rules governing this can be found above. The following plots currently have permanence.

List of permanent nations

Anserisa, Besern, Bruuma, Ceretania, Erinor & Sereva, Esfalsa, Frost, GI-Land, Holy Free, Huawan, Karnetvor, Omega, Ryccia, Sedunn, Techganet, Tekarai, Transsuneria, TSSS, Ubesii, USI, Valkyria

Calculating distances

Find below a method for calculating the true latitudinal distances in your plot.

About the projection and latitudinal distances
This is a map with an equirectangular projection. It means that the further north or south from the equator, the more horizontal “stretching out” of the map there will be. As an effect, plots appear larger than they are due being projected wider. Vertically there is no “stretching out”. For more information about the projection and resulting local distortion, see this Wikipedia article.

The distance bar on the regional map is not accurate for all latitudes. If you want to measure distances elsewhere on the map, you have to compensate for the latitudinal distortion. Below is a table containing the so-called relative scale factor, k. To calculate the horizontal (i.e. latitudinal) distance at a given latitude, divide the distance measured with the distance bar by the scale factor. The formula below can also be used to obtain values between those provided in the table.

The scale factor also tells you how much you need to shrink your plot horizontally to get a more accurate local representation. It useful for making your own customized maps for your plots or calculating distances between cities in your plot. Click here for an illustration. If for example your plot is mostly located at 35°S, k is equal to 1.221, meaning your plot is represented as 1.221 times wider horizontally than it really is, you divide the distance obtained with the equatorial distance bar by 1.221 for a more accurate distance.

k=1/cos(φ)
φ is recommended to be in degrees obtained from the grid on the map.

Example - Calculating how wide your plot is:

  1. Find the latitude (i.e. how for from the equator you want to measure) using the grid on the map, for example 35°S.
  2. Use the distance bar to measure the distance between the extreme west to the extreme east of your plot, for example 600 km.
  3. Find in the table the corresponding scale factor. In this case k=1.221.
  4. Divide the distance with the scale factor. In this case 600/1.221≈491 km. This is the true width for your plot.

just put my capital in the centre of the land.

A few small things,

  1. Sumeti should be on the river.
  2. You spelled Cîmpia Mare without the accented i (I know it’s a nitpick but whatever, you don’t have to fix that)

I would like to swap my Winston Island claim with plot 66 and call it Austurland, an eastern province of Valkyria.

Dot #3: Port Ineopbi
Dot #4: South Bay City
Dot #5: Luxeiligalia

There are two green arrows on the picture. They represent the names of Seas/ Bays. Please name those two bits as the following:

The arrow on the top): Luxedaia Sea

Oh and also for the mountain range (I mean the one in the middle or where I placed mountain #1, please name it as Inoepbi Range.

I divided the Plot into 5 pieces (borders in red) and gave them numbers, which you can see on the drawing.

#1: Fipotalla Province

#3: Ineopbi Province
#4: PN Capital Area
#5: Sudu Capitalia

Also, for that river that flows through the plot, name it ‘Pacicaya River’.

Sorry, haven’t seen that. And Sumeti is kinda on the river… :stuck_out_tongue:
I’ve put it closer to it now though.

Done

Neither “The Anarcho” nor “Bambino Land” are viable names for a country or a capital (same applies to Cayon Pacifica and Pacifican Naranja). Please resubmit your applications with more realistic names.

In case of Cayon’s nation name: You can also provide an in-character explanation as to why “Cayon Pacifica” is the name of the nation. It might become realistic with that. Alternatively you can also accept following proposed name from me: Cayon.

I get to the other applications still. Other stuff has held me up lately, I’m sorry!

I want to overhaul my claim (New Luxtenstein), if that’s okay

The plot name should be changed from New Luxtenstein to Weisserstein

Cities:
(Old name - New name)
Neu Luxtenstein - Kaiserslicht
Grünhafen - Friedrichsdorf
Linnebrücken - Waldbrücken
Brennenburg - Kronplatz
Gienau - Lichtenburg

Geographical Features:
(Old name - New name)
Linne - Wald
Gulf of New Luxtenstein - Gulf of Weisserstein
Mt. Grunen - Mt. Kaisersstolz

Thanks

‘Cayon’ isn’t the issue. ‘Cayon Pacifica’ is. If ‘Cayon’ is similar to, say, ‘Korean,’ then ‘Cayon Pacifica’ is analogous to a country being called ‘Korean Earth.’

Similarly, ‘Pacifican Naranja’ is not similar to ‘South Naranja’ or ‘East Naranja’ but rather would be analagous to a city called ‘Earthling Naranja.’

Is there a particular in-character reason you need to reference the name of our planet in these names?
