Eligibility requirements for making a claim:
Have a population of at least TWENTY million (20,000,000)
Be currently and have been in the Cape of Good Hope for at least SEVEN (7) days
Be applying with your MAIN (non-puppet) GH nation
Not already have a claim
Terms and disclosures:
The mapmaker has the final say in map design, though the mapmaker will try to accommodate requests as possible. However, nothing is guaranteed.
Your claim or request may not be grantable, whether due to the nature of the request, conflict with another request, or another reason.
If you leave the Cape of Good Hope or your nation ceases to exist, you may lose your claim. Returning may not grant your claim back to you.
Terms, rules, requirements, etc. may change at any time, and changes may be retroactive.
Inappropriate, offensive, or overly disruptive claims and requests will not be granted.
How to make a claim:
IMPORTANT: Before making a request, ensure that you meet the requirements above. By making claim or request, you also acknowledge and agree to the above terms.
Send a telegram to Tyramon containing the name you wish to be displayed on the map, the color you want for the name and for the background of your nation, and a description of where you want your nation to be located, optionally including which nations you wish to border. You may make a request for minor map modifications, granted at the discretion of the mapmaker.
Redrawing borders/coastlines takes time, meaning I may not be able to complete a request or it may greatly delay completion, so it is generally best to avoid such requests. Adding a small island or internal lake is the easiest thing to do and will generally not cause much of a delay. Asking for basic changes isn't hard either; as a rule of thumb, if you can easily describe the change using words, it is probably not too hard to draw, and hopefully won't take too long. But, if you have to send me a picture to communicate it, it is likely too much/too specific. Tracing maps is hard or in many cases infeasible, especially if your nation is near other nations, and as such these requests may be denied or put on hold indefinitely. Also, if your request would significantly affect another nation or nations, you must get that nation or nations to approve of the request before I will even consider it. This includes changes to shared borders as well as changes close to their borders in some cases.

Current Map Versions: "1.00 political map with names" and "1.00 political map with feature names"
Maps created, owned, and maintained exclusively by Tyramon. The map was digitally hand drawn in 2022.
This map is intended primarily for use in roleplay for nations who feel that the other map does not accurately represent their nation.
Note that the physical map is generally not as up-to-date as the political map. If there is a discrepancy between the two, consider the political map to be more accurate.
Before making a claim or request, it is recommended that you first check the Requests Log for any potentially redundant or conflicting claim. However, you can generally exclude Denied and Out of Date requests, as they are not and will not be included in the map.
If you previously made a claim or request and it does not appear in the Requests Log within 72 hours, it is generally recommended that you follow up with Tyramon regarding the status of your request. However, if your request has already been completed in a displayed map version, there is generally no need to add it to the requests log. This is especially true of early requests - requests made prior to the publishing of map version 0.02i.
Do not be concerned if you make a request and a map version comes out without your request. It is possible that the released version was in the later stages of release when you request was received. Instead, check the Requests Log and make sure that your request is shown as Planned or Upcoming.
