It's likely not possible; accounts deleted for inactivity are wiped forever. We don't typically store user information once they no longer have an account for data privacy/security reasons.

Do you know when your nation was deleted? Unless it was within the last 10 months or so, not even a partial recovery would be possible.

Sorry, the latest records I would have for a partial recovery go back to October 9, 2020, at which point it looks like your nation did not exist.

This forum topic had me thinking, and I wondered why we couldn't just have Kevin's Inactive Mode to keep nations in an archive. Basically, after your nation is inactive for a long set period of time, it goes into "inactivity mode" and basically gets archived, and when you go to the nation link it appears as if the nations has been removed from the game, but if the person ever decided to come back, he could restore that same nation with all its conditions and its id just prior to going into inactivity mode. This would encourage people to come back to the game as their nations has been perfectly preserved. I know we have vacation mode, but what if someone quits the game for more than 6 months? They would have to basically restart the game all over again. I think incorporating Inactivity Mode from CN would be best for this game as it encourages previous players to come back and seems simple enough to incorporate if a dead game like CN can have it.

I don't think it's an inherently bad idea, but it does bring up player privacy concerns. My hunch is that the vast majority (99%+) are never coming back and would prefer that we don't store their data (essentially) forever.

I like the current Vacation Mode system because it gives players a reasonable opportunity (60 days to 1 year, depending on how much time they had already put into the game) to return and have their nation essentially restored, but it does not result in us keeping everyone's data indefinitely.
