How does my nation get bigger? Cause if you can't do this...:sniper:
You simply wait, each nation gets a little bit bigger everyday
Ok. Still, I think it sucks that you can't declare war...
if you're interested in stuff like that i would suggest taking a look at International Incidents
War is done in a "Freeform Rollplay" sort of situation. Like what Cookesland said, i'd check out International Incidents if I were you and read up on the sticky's. Especially Euroslavia's Series of Helpful Hints (http://forums.jolt.co.uk/showthread.php?t=408855), II Seperate Rulings Thread (http://forums.jolt.co.uk/showthread.php?t=443725) and the International Incidents Consolidation Sticky (http://forums.jolt.co.uk/showthread.php?t=437653). You will find a wealth of information there about Rollplaying in the NationStates world.
