Varje spelare har ett hemvist i en region: det tillåter dig att delta i valet, arbeta (om din region har en begränsning) och resa utan visumavgifter. I bostadsorten har du tillåtelse att göra allt som är tillåtet i staten.
Player can not lose his residency, he can only change it from one region to another. In case if residency is issued by leader (this is regulated by a specific law) you will have to send a request for your residency and wait for state leader to approve it. You can send request on region page.
Leader will decide if you can take residency in this region.
All new players start with a residency in the region which is closest to their real life region or Sao Tome Principe region(if game cannot detect your real life location).
Besides residency you can ask for a work permit. This will allow you to work in the region/state and you won't have to change your residency.
