NOTICE: As of January 2016, the Nearly Real World will be undergoing a revamp and new aesthetics and organisation will be in place. All nations that have previously existed in the nearly real world will be removed, and a reapplication is required by the user and needs to be sent to Javants. If a new country wishes to become part of the nearly real world, again, please apply through the user Javants.

The Nearly Real World is a world which is similar to the real world. It's just that in the Nearly Real World, there are a few more countries than in our world - and a few more land masses.

The Nearly Real World is a place where made-up nations and the people thereof can be outlined, on the condition that the nation is supposed to be located on the planet Earth and is there right now. No former nations, no fantasy countries - this is for 'made-up' real-world nations.

Editing the NRW is open to everybody with restrictions. You are entitled to add your own nation and edit it to your heart's content. However, please do not edit or contribute to a nation which is not your creation without the creator's consent. For more, please see the section on Rules below before you begin your editing. For applications, please write to Javants.

Rules:

Main Article: Rules of the Nearly Real World

The Nearly Real World is designed to be an open platform realism world, in which people are free to create realistic nations on Earth with an alternate political and geographical timeline. However, in order for consistency and the maintenance of a high standard, there are a few rules that must be adhered to for nations in the Nearly Real World, which are detailed below in brief. It is highly recommended that you read the rules in the link above in full before you begin creating your nation. By creating a nation in the Nearly Real World, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to comply to these rules, which are, in brief, as follows:

  1. In order to create a nation in the Nearly Real World, you must apply through the user Javants (See Rules of the Nearly Real World), in order to help maintain consistency and for administrative purposes on the Nearly Real World home page.
  2. Your Nation must exist in the here-and-now Earth. This means that you cannot have a fantasy or science fiction nation, and that it must still comply with the laws and history of the everyday 'real' worlds. A fair degree of realism is required. Your nation should not be a utopia, nor should it be hell-on-earth. Moderation is key. Similarly, you cannot be a die-hard, communist dictatorship and have excellent diplomatic relations and trade with the USA.
  3. For the purpose of aesthetics, your nation must contain a small heading which reads 'This Nation is part of the Nearly Real World', and also should have a Nation Infobox Table (on which more information can be found at the page Nation Infobox Help!)
  4. International events within the Nearly Real World require group discussion and involvement. If an event occurs that has world-wide implications, it must be decided upon by the community in the Nearly Real World talk page. For example, one nation cannot decide that their is an impending global apocalypse without the consent of other nations in the Nearly Real World. Similarly, if an international festival or event is occurring, nations must veto and arrange a situation (as with the Olympics or World Cup).
  5. It is important that several copyright and privacy rules are undertaken and adhered to in order for people's nations in the Nearly Real World to be respected and maintained. Thus, refrain from adding to or expanding on the pages of other nations, unless other-wise mentioned or in consultation with that nation's creator. Do not create any events which involve that nation without consensus or agreement from the said nation.

    • Opposition Leader Adam Engelke expressed disappointment in the result, saying "Never before has the need for unity and solidarity been stronger. We do not agree with the decision, but we will respect it as we would that of any democratic state."
