Info and FAQ

Codes are an abbreviation of a nation’s short name, and do not include titles that describe the nation’s type of government:

  • Kingdom of
  • Duchy of
  • Dominion of
  • Republic of
  • Empire of
  • Nation of
  • State of
  • Reich
  • Caliphate

(Not an exhaustive list)

Exceptions to this rule are unions, where Union (or similar) is used to describe a union of specific types of government. For example:

United States of America (USA) United Republics of Michigan (URM) Reunited Ocean States (ROS)

These all count as valid exceptions where descriptors of type of government can be used, but, “Union” may still be dropped when its presence is deemed unnecessary in a code. (Example:)

United Arab Emirates (ARE for ARab Emirates, “union” is ignored)

However, names that describe a union with a specific government type are NOT exceptions, and may only include an abbreviation for “union” in the code, such an example would be

Republic of the Union of Eastasia

Because a government type describes the union as a whole, not the individual parts that came together.
