Nations is an online geopolitical nation simulation (or "nationsim" for short) founded in November 2004, in which players roleplay leaders (and at various times other members of a government) of nations. Players submit orders, which are then processed by the mod team, with the results posted in the World News. Players may also discuss events in the Leader Discussion forum, give their reaction to events in National News, or pose as a journalist and ask questions of a foreign government in the National Press Rooms. Players are also required to submit a budget every year. Although allowing players to engage in military conflict, Nations is not a wargame and should not be played as such. Nations has a sharp focus on realism.
