How does paying, upkeeping, an army work? How about researching new weapons? Producing your own? Any help is welcome

First of all, read the stickies. That'll tell you most of what you need to know.

I read them, and they did help, but not with technicalities like how to do research, and about how to produe your own weapons.

Ok, this can be completely simple or infinitely complex, it is really up to you. The first thing to think about is what kind of nation do you want to RP. This can be fairly different than your actual nation, but dont make it too too different or your nation's stats will not truly represent what you are RP'ing. Oh RP stands for role play. So how do you research and build new weapons, well it is fairly simple. You just say that you are. However, there are limits on this. You cant say, "I AM RESEARCHING UBER NUKES THAT DESTROY ALL LIFE!!!!!1111" No, that is very bad and will earn you a terrible reputation. Things must be kept in reason. To find out what reason is, find out how much money your nation has to spend. To do this use an economy calculator. I find thinkgeek to be the best. Dont have the URL but you can find it on the forums. Go Nation States, What is the nation states forum (some sticky like that), nation states programs, thinkgeek. This will tell you how much money you have to spend. So if it costs 1,000,000 to research X according to statistics and you have 10,000,000 to spend, then you can spend 1/10 of your money researching that. Now most people dont research things, but you can if you want to. Just take things slow and to be on the safe side until you have more experiance RP weaker than you think you should be. This will make sure you dont behave like an ass. Anyway, just a brief overview. Feel free to telegram me with more questions.
