List of NPC Nations (new)

Postby Noahs Second Country » Thu Jan 05, 2017 5:21 pm

The OP of the previous thread no longer exists, so I decided to make a new one that I will update

Original Thread: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=364473

I've also incorporated issue appearances, thanks to Trotterdam.
Edit 1: Added Smalltopia issue appearances
Edit 2: Added Mike Ronation, @@ANIMAL@@ Republic and @@RANDOMNAME@@ County issue appearances
Edit 3: Added Dàguó, Updated Brancaland.
Edit 4: Updated all issue appearances, added United Federation.

Foreign Nations:

Maxtopia: Maxtopia is a nation with a long history, stretching back to the often-referenced "Ancient Maxtopians", such as King Maxbari IV. There are many Maxtopian immigrants in your nation, and they provide a lot of electricity and oil to your country. Maxtopia and North Bigtopia have recently gone to war. This country has been described as "scenic, yet corrupt and totalitarian", secular, has high tariffs, and executes people for carrying drugs, such as "Maxtopian Grass". Maxtopia also has recently undergone a civil war or two, one of which involves the religious Violetists, who make up a majority in the country. It is the home of the wood-eating spikeball and the dreaded Maxtopian hornet.

Bigtopia: There are many Bigtopian immigrants in your country, who face all manner of discrimination from your country as well as Tasmania, Lilliputia, and East Lebatuck, discrimination which they frequently protest. One prominent Bigtopian, Nicholas Condor, called for the extermination of your people. Bigtopia has cheaper labor than your country, leading to outsourcing from your country to theirs. Bigtopia had a dictatorial regime led by the mass-murdering "Butcher of Bigtopia", but this regime was overthrown by revolutionaries. Bigtopia harbors anti-government activists from your country, leading to military tensions.
North Bigtopia: North Bigtopia went to war with Maxtopia, leading to clashes between Maxtopian and Bigtopian immigrants.
Outer Bigtopia: Spies on your country with an agent named "Solo".

Do you want help in getting it up-to-date?

I can tell you right of the bat that the previous author was missing Dàguó, which is a stand in for China as I understand it.

Also two of my issues deal with the NPC of Tasmania #647 is about their well known love of eating innocent songbirds and #653 is about their being home to "Ultra-Violet, an especially extreme and hateful Violetist terrorist group from Tasmania"

Thanks for setting this up! I'd have done it myself, but I knew I wouldn't put the effort to keep it updated. Cheers for doing this!

As others have mentioned, Dàguó is the latest member of the NPC family.
This nation is modeled on being my absolute worst dystopia imaginable. In no way do the Annihilators reflect my opinions, in fact I am totally against almost every single policy they enact.
I support insanely high tax rates, do you?

589.3 mentions East Lebuckte having a space program as well as a satellite in orbit named "Sputnak," which seems to suggest that East Lebuckte is becoming a representation of the Soviet Union, at least regarding the space race. I do remember that in another issue, (the one about letting artists decorate government buildings, I think) an option begins with the phrase "In communist East Lebuckte, buildings redesign you," which seems to support my analysis.

I also see slight ties with Russia, because ambassadors get drunk, and very cold. About Canada, the Quebec-Quaybeck province is a dead giveaway, but it's not in a violent separatist movement at all, nor has it ever been. Russia fits more with the violent separatist movement, especially in Chechnya.

I never noticed Brancaland was basically Canada. <3

Outer Sparta: There's a hilarious anecdote about ambassadors Lester B Pearson (future PM) and George Ignatieff (whose son later would run for PM unsuccessfully) going to Yalta at the height of the Cold War (1955), outdrinking Khruschev and the rest of the Russian delegation with eighteen shots of vodka. I'm not entirely sure what the diplomatic objective was per se, but they had the Russians under the table when they left.

Have Some New Appearances

Postby Maljaratas » Sat Feb 04, 2017 10:43 am

Named as the government of Tasmania in their civil war. Deployed WMDs purchased from @@NAME@@ against rebel capital. Autocratic.
#562: Return to Sender
Separatist Movement from Central Tasmania/Tasmania. Culturally and Ideologically similar to @@NAME@@. Have public sympathy of @@NAME@@.
#562: Return to Sender
Home of Ultra-Violet, an extreme hateful Violetist terrorist group.
#653: A Cloak And Syringe Operation
Released a movie that implies @@NAME@@ is a dystopian hell-hole. Apparently bake dog-hair muffins.
#584: The Cake Is A Lie
Have a space program, Sputnak.
#589: To Boldly Go?
Wild stocks of salmon depleted by Sea Lice and overfishing, has a civil war that is producing a steady stream of refugees, women outside of homes must be accompanied by a male relative, has very cheap manufacturing, exports underwear and toasters, southern Maxtopia is unstable and has extremist rebels.
#591: Bait And Switch
#610: Only @@LEADER@@ Could Go To Dàguó
#629: Boom Or Bust?
#649: Made In Maxtopia
#656: Ransoms Noted
Wild stocks of salmon depleted by Sea Lice and overfishing, struck by a massive series of natural disasters that endanger millions, have insulted @@NAME@@ many times.
#591: Bait And Switch
#663: A "Friend" In Need
Had a recent war called the 'Wezeltonian War'.
#607: If Your Election Lasts Longer Than Four Weeks...
Has an election season that last 24 months.
#607: If Your Election Lasts Longer Than Four Weeks...
Have Tasmanian Trade Sanctions, has denounced @@NAME@@ for covert operations that @@NAME@@ denies, one-child policy.
#610: Only @@LEADER@@ Could Go To Dàguó
#638: Won't Somebody Think of the Children?
Has lush forests, a very patriotic governor, and tribal natives.
#617: Who's This Little Rascal?
Has a national anthem called 'Bigger And Cleverer'.
#633: Sound Judgement
Have spectacular construction projects, some are millenia old, Maxmillia Familia still under construction after 100 years,
#643: No Small Wonder


I had to separate out the three different Tasmanias mentioned, though I believe Central Tasmania and Tasmania are the same.
This covers issues 543-664, also known as the second page of the spoiler thread. I'm pretty sure I got them all in that selection, though I could have missed a few in my skimming.
I also took the liberty of obtaining the nation Sekonlif, which is one of the ones in the 266 :p

Correction: Oogaboogaland was excised from issue 617.
Max: The code changelog says, "Added 'butthole' by mod request"
Lenyo: This dilemma needs an option that Luna would support in RL.

The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding

Was it just changed to just being a colony of @@NAME@@ (For my list of changes fir Drasnia in the spoiler thread)?

All of the appearances were already in the OP with their nations, so I saw no reason to put them on my list.

Alright, that makes sense. Do you want to go back and cover references to NPC nations in earlier issues?

Good job, regardless. I always appreciate it whenever someone takes an active interest in helping to make Got Issues a more fun and helpful place.

I'll probably get to that at some point, though I'll need a larger block of time to do that.
