The Nation portal template (edit is a template for nation portals, which can function as an introductory page to the nation and where various pieces of information can be regularly updated on the respective nation. The page title for each nation portal should be as follows: Portal:[Nation name], for example Portal:Anisora.

Nation portal pages are great places to showcase new or old articles, images, and information alike, allowing visitors easy access to interesting facts about the respective nation. The Nation portal includes sections on: introductory information on the nation; a 'Featured article', which can be of any article relating to the nation in question; a 'Featured biography' of any person from or related to the nation; a 'Featured quote' about or by somebody from the nation; a 'Featured picture'; an 'In the news' section, where recent updates or news from the nation can be shown; a 'did you know?' section, where random facts of interest relating to the nation can be shown; and finally a 'Featured location' showcasing any region, city or geographical point of interest in the nation.

Users are encouraged to update a Nation portal regularly. When a section is updated, a user may use the provided 'More featured articles/biographies/quotes/pictures' links at the end of each section to create a separate page where a log of all featured information can be stored for future reference. Keeping this information also encourages visitors to find out more information about the nation, and ensures previously featured articles or information are not merely discarded after an update.
