As would make sense, my username is the name of my nation. I was previously the owner of a few other nations, including Tingitana, Pedriana, and most famously Bedistan. I first joined NS with Bedistan on June 1, 2003.
In terms of roleplaying, I tend to stick almost exclusively to sports RPs, having been a regular participant in the World Cup for about four years. Ironically, I have no athletic abilities whatsoever in real life, have never played on a competitive sports team, and actually knew next to nothing about soccer (or football, as I've taken to calling it after spending too much time with Europeans on IRC) before I joined NS.
I can be found almost all the time over on #nssport, where my username will almost always be either "Vephrall" or "Veph|(something)", except on Sunday nights when my Hattrick match is playing; then my nick may include "Yuba" somewhere within it (team name Yuba United, named after the Bedistani domestic club of that name).
Outside NationStates, some of my interests include computer programming and mathematics. Also a possibly unhealthy interest in roads and highway systems. I also do some gaming on my computer every now and then.
