For a live example, visit any current country such as Bangladesh.
= Required

Parameter Description Output
title This defines the title of the InfoBox (the text at the top). This should be the official name of the Country. The title parameter goes hand in hand with the "country" parameter.

Example: Denmark

  • title = Kingdom of Demark
  • country = Denmark
Kingdom of Denmark
Flag of Denmark.svg
country The short name of a country; usually the page name. If you use the one of the page name, it will automatically populate the flag image with the correct flag, so make sure you are spelling this correctly.

Example: Denmark

  • title = Kingdom of Demark
  • country = Denmark
Kingdom of Denmark
Flag of Denmark.svg
img If the flag doesn't show up, or if you don't want to use the flag, use the img parameter to point to the uploaded file you want to use.

Example: Estonia

  • img = Flag of Estonia.svg
Flag of Estonia.svg
The region of an existing country can be found on the Countries by Region page. When creating a new country, use your best judgement to to fit it into an existing region. If a country occupies more than one region, use "region2" and "region3" if necessary. The order of the regions should be in descending order, meaning the region the country occupies most should be in "region".

Example: Russia

  • region = North Asia
  • region2 = East Europe
Regions: North Asia, East Europe
Every country has at least one widespread language. Many have more. Make the parameter "language" equal to the primary or most peopular language in that country. If there are more signifigant languages, order them based on how prevelant they are (a languge spoken by 30% of the people will go ahead of a language spoken by 15% of the people).

Example: Luxembourg

  • language = Luxembourgish
  • language2 = German
  • language3 = French
Languages: Luxembourgish, German, French
Almost every langauge has a writing system/script. The most common is Latin, but some other common ones are Cyrillic and Arabic. If there are multiple languages with the same writing system only enter it once. Make the writing system correspond with the langauges ("language = English, "ws = Latin" and "language2 = Russian, ws2 = Cyrillic"). If a language has multiple writing systems (like Serbaian) use multiple "ws" variables.

Example: Israel

  • ws = Hebrew
  • ws2 = Arabic
Writing Systems: Hebrew, Arabic
side The side side of the road traffic flows. Most of the world drives on the Right, but some former British colonies drive on the Left.

Example: Peru

  • side = Right
Driving Side: Right
wikipedia Link to the Wikipedia page of the country or territory. This makes it easier for the viewer to find more information that isn't listed on the page.

Example: Nigeria

Nigeria Wikipedia
capital Most countries and territories have a capital city or cities. If the country or territory has multiple capitals, seperate them by commas. If a country or territory doesn't have a capital, maek the capital = to None.

Example: Bolivia

  • capital = Sucre, La Paz

Example: Switzerland

  • capital = None
Capital: Sucre, La Paz
Capital None
largest This simply is the largest city in the country or city. If you want to link to a city page (if there is one) use "[[city name]]".

Example: Sri Lanka

  • largest = Colombo
Largest City: Colombo
domain Every country and a lot of territories have their own domain names. There are universal domains (such as .com, .org, .net) that every aren't specific to a country.

Example: New Zealand

  • domain = .nz
Domain: .nz
phone As with domains, almost every country and territory has their own phone code. Some territories use the same phone code as their mainland countries, but have their own area code.

Example: Hungary

  • phone = +36
Phone Code: +36
generation The generation of of the camera can be found on this spreadsheet created by u/ididntreaddit. The generations are as follwing:
Camera Generation Description Year
1 These are the lowest quality images. These images make it so you can't see that much. 2007-2009
2 Better quality than Generation 1. Sky often has a purple tint. 2008-2011
3 Regular image quality. 2011-2019
4 High image quality. There are vivid colors and the sky often has a purplish tint. 2017-present

Example: United States

  • generation = 1, 2, 3, 4
Camera Gen: 1, 2, 3, 4
ter If the area being addressed is a territory of another, make the "ter" variable equal to the country that owns the area. If the area isn't a territory, the "ter" variable can be removed or left blank.

Example: British Virgin Islands

  • ter = United Kingdom
Territory of link United KingdomUnited Kingdom
eu If a country is in the European Union, make the "eu" parameter equal to "true". The true is case sensitive, so make sure the "true" is all lowercase. If the country isn't in the European Union, the "eu" variable can be removed or left blank.

Example: Austria

  • eu = true
In the Flag of European Union.svg European Union
br If the country or territory is in the Battle Royale gamemode make the "br" variable equal to "true". Like the "eu" variable the "true" is case sensitive; it's case sensitive.

Example: Kenya

  • br = true
