Yes, war can be declared, but there is no "declare war" button, you must post a thread in International Incidents declaring your intentions. Invading and Defending is done through RPing, for a more in depth explaination try the International Incidents consolidation sticky by Euroslavia, it's at the top of all the II pages. Or there's always "The ultimate guide to war" by Automagfreek

How do I go to war against another nation? Or trade?
In one sense, you can't. NationStates doesn't include these things -- because it's a simple game, and because they would bias things in favor of militaristic and capitalist nations. One of the nice things about NationStates is that you can craft a nation into your idea of Utopia without having to worry about such pragmatic concerns as national defence.

Into the breach, however, steps the NationStates community, which has independently devised an entire system covering war, trade, and just about anything else you can think of. This takes place entirely on the forums (mostly in International Incidents), and is role-played.

Many people have asked about the possibility of a more sophisticated version of NationStates, with trade, military conflicts, and more. This does sound cool, but I haven't decided yet if I want to do that. It would be a lot of work, and I'd have to charge people to play it. But it's possible.

You can either invade regions by joining an invader outfit and look on the stickies in the gameplay forum for that.

Or you can RP invasions and go to the International Incidents forum for that and read the stickies.
