This is a list of all members of the Kallipolic Confederation listed by the time they first appear. Notable ones have individual headings and 3 have their own articles.

Classical 338 BC-500

Macedon, Bactria, India, Egypt, Parthia, Hellas, Scythia, Selucia, Palmyra, Rome, Thrace, New Carthage, Rhodes, Arabia, Persia.

110 Plato

Epirus

This nation was responsible for converting Rome to Platonism, under philosopher-monarch (philarchon) Pyrrha in 272 BC. It also participated in all wars that this timelines Rome participated in up to the Third Punic War, after which it lost control. However Epirus, Macedon and Hellas were strong enough to prevent Rome from expanding anywhere other than Northwest Africa and Western Europe. Epirus itself was absorbed into Hellas after the Classical period ended.

Judea

This nation was never fully assimilated and was often a centre of trouble for everyone nearby. The inhabitants had a strong national spirit and regularly revolted against any foreign influence.

Visigoths and Ostrogoths

These nations attacked the Roman Kallipolis, not to look for a new homeland as such (the Huns do not exist in this timeline as the Hsiung-Nu were exterminated) but to destroy the degenerate society that disgraced the name of utopia and beautiful city (Kallipolis). They were Christian and also included the Franks, who set up the nation of France. The Goths set up Iberia.

Medieval 500-1500

PlatoMiddleages

Franks, Saxons, Britain, Iberia, Holy Roman Empire, Norsca, Teutonic Order, Venice, Milan, Sicily, Naples, Florence, Moors, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Sudan, Empire of Ghana, Songhai Empire, Mali Empire, Great Zimbabwe, Somalia, Constantinople, Nepal.

Tuareg & Berbers

These are mainly nomadic tribes in North Africa and therefore would not normally fall under the term "city-state". However, they justify their claim by saying that they have cities, just that the locations can change daily. The nomads sometimes also enter Egypt and the extensive Moorish Kallipolis and are usually tolerated.

Kharijites

A nation of Islamic Arabs who refuse to submit to a Caliph and seek to maintain their independence. They operate in a similar manner to the Tuareg and have technically served in all wars the Confederation has engaged in.

Ottomans

In the 13th century, Turkish philarchon Osman Khan set up an nation between the Middle East and Asia Minor. This became a great power in the region and came into conflict with Constantinople. However, it played a role in blunting the Mongol advance. In the next age, the Ottomans were powerful enough to send expeditions all over the Mediterranean and secured the security of the Confederation while Europe descended into internecine religious war.

Steppe Nomads and Travellers

This is a catch all term for all fourth world nations except the Tuareg & Berbers. They have a similar rationale as the Tuareg for their mobile lifestyle -mobile city state- but reception can vary. Gypsies are welcome mostly across Europe but shouldn't stay in one place for long. Actual steppe nomad Kallipoli include the Khazars, Onugurs, Pechenegs and Cossacks though there are many more.

1500sPlato

European, Middle Eastern and North African nations (also includes the Chinese Empire and Border Princes)

Age of Division 1500-1700

Reform Union (also includes Switzerland and the independent British Kallipolis), Poland & Teutonic Order, Ottoman Control Zone, Iberia-Moors, Serbia, Benin Empire, Bornu Empire, Dendhi, Madagascar.

New World Colony Congress

This was set up to govern any colonies that the Confederation has set up in America. The colonies are themselves Kallipoli, but the Congress is used to organise them

West Australia

This was the first Confederate colony in the southern continent, set up by East Asian Kallipoli such as India, and Bactria. This was in response to the Chinese controlled Empire of Cambodia, Malaya and Indonesia setting up colonies on East Australia.

All dissident nations rejoin the Confederation at the end of this period.

Plato world

The downfall of Confucianism 1700-1842

Aotearoa, Mesoamerican Kallipolis (a puppet of the Colony Congress), Uighur, Tibet, Japan, Malaya, Indonesia, Ma-i, East Australia, Hawaii, Polynesia, South Africa . 

Chinese Territiory

This was the new nation set up after the fall of the Chinese Empire in 1842. More information available in the main article.

Magnesia Moonbase

This was set up at great expense by the non-European Confederation as space stations weren't enough. This is not really a separate Kallipolis as it relies on the goodwill of other nations and has no permanent personnel (though some can stay for years- children have been born up there). Oxygen is created through a mass collection of plants though backup imported oxygen is kept in liquid form. The moonbase is named after the perfect city in Plato's other work Laws and contains all facilities needed by a nation. Power is generated through solar panels and transfers from docked spacecraft, with surplus kept in batteries in the event of an emergency. Weapons were moved up here in the final battle against China and proved decisive in the conquest of the Empire and of its space installations.
