I am a member of a realm that is picking up steam and now has 5 or 6 people with varying levels of activity, and we're looking to round up some more people to add some more consistent activity. Right now I'm the only person with a large build (although at least one person is making an earnest effort to catch up), but when the nether update drops I expect activity to pick up even further.
I have a village with over 40 villagers (probably closer to 50) in it, and we have librarians covering almost all of the big books including mending. We also have a tool smith, weapon smith and armor smith for everything you can make out of diamond, so you can get endgame gear, enchantments and all, very quickly.
We have covered a very large area in the End and can distribute a couple of shulker boxes to each new server member, so long as they don't just show up a couple times then never log on again, and have shown they are capable of not dying frequently and risking losing it. We have a direct route to the Nether Fortress, and are trying to not load any more chunks in the Nether to try to preserve as much of it as possible for the Nether Update in case they don't give us the Reset Nether button back. We don't want to have to travel thousands of blocks in the Nether just to get the new content when it finally arrives.
This is a realm with only generally quiet and mature adult players. We don't mind bringing people in that have more outgoing personalities, but just be wary that consistently loud people (or people that don't have good mic etiquette, such as leaving a mic unmuted while a bunch of noise is happening in your house) will eventually be removed.
We would prefer only Xbox players, but we will accept anyone that fits in. The basic rules of any realm apply: No griefing, pranking, duping, stealing, build-encroaching or other destructive or inconsiderate behavior will be tolerated. We've already had to remove one idiot that went into the first house he saw and started tearing up and stealing stuff and claimed he "got lost", even after I gave him the coordinates for the resource hub.
The Nether Rule:
Do not explore the nether. If you need help finding the fortress so you can collect blocks/skulls/whatever, let someone else know so we can guide you there without loading any new chunks.
The Ranger Rule:
Be reasonable and respectful when you collect resources. If you are going to mine a 100x100 area in a desert of all sand and sandstone, if it is anywhere near the hub or anyone else, you'd better put a band-aid layer on the top so it's not an eyesore. We don't care so much if it's 5,000 blocks away from everyone. The same goes for simpler things like mining out trees and leaving ugly block ladders everywhere. Preserve your environment as much as possible.
The Lag Rule:
Nobody is allowed to build or compile things that will cause massive amounts of lag to the server. This includes but is not limited to absurd amounts of mobs, large automatic overkill redstone machines, and color-strobing beacons.
