I'm gonna suggest adding a rule (shocking, I know) regarding the passage of time in-character. It seems that each nation is following something different, with some using the real-life time and date, and others using a past or future date. There's also the issue of players abbreviating an in-character year to a short period of time IRL, which could be used to circumvent the rule regarding development within a reasonable amount of time. While I do believe there should be an abbreviation of time, I'd suggest first making it reasonable, and second, stating what the abbreviation is so everyone can see it.

As far as I recall, time passes the same way it does in the primary game. That was the official rule in NatRP when I asked long ago, and it's the rule I've stuck with. 1 ooc day = 12 ic days. 1 ooc month is 1 ic year. So on and so forth.

This seems pretty reasonable to me. It also works out nicely that one calendar week is about 3 months. Using that calendar, OrgRP should currently be around 2033-2034 (?). I think that works pretty well on a macro-level, but it does mean if you have person-level RP (e.g. interactions with other diplomats, stories about local characers of any length) it might have to be fudged a bit so it can fit into the standard time-line. 

I will definitely have to update some things in my backstory to bring it in line with the current calendar if that's what we're going with.

In that case, I'll probably include that in the map thread where everyone will (hopefully) see it.

With some of my RPs, like Bloodless Wounds, I've been using OOC time, as I'm unable to write fast enough to pack a year into a month. Is that alright?

Yeah. I usually use real-life time.
