Application for Ca'onja to join the Alliance of Independent Nations
Image
Ca'onja is an Oceanic nation comprising of two archipelago groups, Caroline and Ontong Java. Further details will be provided in the spoilers below.

The short form name, Ca'onja, is a portmanteau of the first syllable of "Caroline", "Ontong" and "Java". The apostrophe is added to symbolise the two archipelagos sharing the same name.

The national flag comprises of two vertical halves, representing the two archipelago groups. The halves are in shades of blue, representing the nation located in the Pacific Ocean. The circles are coloured in white, representing the unity amongst the diverse ethnicity of the nation. In addition, the four circles represent the 4 Great Empires (see History below), with the second circle from the left representing Eauripik which itself is split between the two archipelagos.

The national emblem also shares similarity with the national flag. The blue border represents the ocean surrounding the federation, represented by the white circle. Overlayed on top are four circles, representing the four countries entangled together, a unity in diversity. The colours of the four circles represents its diverse colonial heritage.

Here is my opinion on this application

1 The flag and coat of arms are fine
2 The map is detailed and realistic for that region
3 Statistical data goes well
4 The story goes well though I don't know very well the history of that region. At first glance it seems that the story is fine.
5 The images are fine

This application has started in the right way and for me can go to the checklist phase

Thanks to all for the encouragements! I look forward to have fun roleplay with you guys.

With this, I'm glad to announce that I am done with the application. I shall now formally submit my application to join AIN. Please feel free to comment and criticise on my application and I will do my best to amend and adjust accordingly!

Also, for those who've looked through my application for the past few days, I encourage you to re-read it again as I have added a some explanation for my application, as well as a few more things.

For convenience, I've also added a section/post for a list of changes/edits made to the application as well as any replies to questions asked by you, starting from now.

This is really good, it has my full approval. I might be blind but did you put your official GDP on the application. I saw the $15,500+ for the per capita but I didn't know if that was definite (if you were moving it up or down).

Yes, the GDP (PPP) per Capita (US$15,500+) is stated on the application. I didn't put an exact figure due to a lack of extensive details on the economy. Instead, I put a range of US$15,500-16,000 in the explanation as I imagine Ca'onja's economy would be in this range.

However, if necessary, I can put in the almost exact figure instead based on the "calculation and adjustment" mentioned in the application above.

EDIT: It applies similarly to the HDI as well.
