Damn, after nearly 1,300 issues, I'm still the only player to have an NPC named after me. It just goes to show you kids, the best way to be famous is by doing something stupid but memorable. Anyways, wow there's been a lot of new countries added since I last checked

I haven't actually encountered the MADness chain yet, but it's interesting that Rushev got solidified as the Chairman of East Lebatuck in it. I believe Rushev's first appearance was in my issue, #1325 (though that name is the editor's doing, rather than mine).

Welp, not only do they resort to bribery to host international sporting competitions, but they also own your country's biggest football teams! Quite sneaky from them.
I don't stand with Ukraine. I don't stand with Russia. I don't stand with the US, NATO, or EU. I stand with the innocent civilians being caught in the crossfire while the politicians, the media, and weapons manufacturers continue to stoke division and conflict in their geopolitical chess games and treat the people of Ukraine as mere pawns. Zelensky is a corrupt, opportunist oligarchic politician who is not fit to lead Ukraine through anything and wants to inflate his own ego and offshore accounts.

Yes, it's common for us editors to borrow names from elsewhere that we liked. Since chains take so long to edit, certain names can appear early within other issues.

So it's not a country, but I see a lot of issues referencing "VODAIS". It's obviously a parallel to HIV, but what does it actually stand for?

Also, Prudenlund is very likely representing Denmark.

[*] Denmark has many islands and coasts, and throughout history has been a major naval power.
[*] Denmark was famous for the "Sound Toll", in which every ship passing into or out of the Baltic Sea had to stop in Denmark and pay a toll. The first situation we see Prudenlund is when our ships stop in their ports.
[*] "Lund" is a common place name ending in all of Scandinavia, but the one major city named "Lund", though it is now in Sweden, has historically been a major port in the mainland Scandinavian part of Denmark until about 1700.

Many thanks for that, QuaKar! (I couldn't resist sorry)

I've added a small note about that to Prudenlund, as well as a note about Maxtopia likely being an ancient civilization, given it used to use hieroglyphs. (I'm guessing probably Egypt given other elements but I don't want to jump to conclusions.)

Also updated the list from issues 1431 to 1451. Added 9 instances of nations appearing in an issue (each time a one-nation occurance!). :D

I've always seen Maxtopia as a hybrid of Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

from #1'474 'Cuy Bono?'

New nation for list: 'Tiquitaca'... The issue arises because a Tiquitacan restaurant that opened recently in your capital city serves the meat called 'cuy.'.. which is guinea-pig.
The name is taken OOC from that of RL's Lake Titicaca, which lies on the border of Peru & Bolivia: In the submitted draft it was actually a "Titicacan" restaurant involved. Cuy is eaten in Peru, at least, out of that pair of countries. The issue's author intended the nation to represent primarily Peru. This is also a shout-out to classic [1950s] British radio comedy series 'The Goon Show', in at least one episode of which a country named 'Titicaca' was mentioned. (Other episodes featured diseases called 'Spon' and 'Lurgi', both of which have already been referred to separately in earlier issues by other authors: "the Spon Plague" in #107, and your "Minister for the Dreaded Lurgies" in #179... although the "Lurgies" reference could have been made without direct knowledge of the Goons, because that name actually became a colloquial term for [undefined] illnesses.)

This issue also attributes particular dishes to two nations that already existed in issues, as well: Skandilund’s reindeer hind cutlets with eyeball sauce, and Tasmanian fermented platypus eggs.

From my understanding, I don't think there is. If there were a Singapore in NS, they have to be a city-state that's heavily reliant on trade and the financial sector.

Updated! Only had 10 issues to add since my last updated; guess this forum really has slowed down a bit, hasn't it? :P

If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long.

From the list in this thread's opening post:
Ausonia: First appearing in #1193: Relocating the Living Room, Ausonia is a nation with a very small military that you've discussed invading for more land for your nation. A lot. It's probably a reference to Austria.

Ausonia is an old name for the Italian peninsula, possibly also used for Italy as a whole, derived from the name of one of the pre-Roman tribes there (probably because this tribe, living as it did in the peninsula's southern end, was one of the first groups there encountered by the Greeks).

Hi, I've been following this for a few months and I received an issue named Unreal (#1101) in which I suspect a new NPC nation could've been mentioned - Alsatia. This is found in 1101.2 and though it does not have any background info, it could refer to the region in Eastern France named Alsace. Unsure whether this is a nation or a province and if it has been mentioned, I am very sorry as I have not read pages 2-8.

I've just checked using the 'Search this thread' function, and you do seem to be the first person to mention this. It might be only an indirect reference to the place, because the word 'Alsatian' is more commonly used in the RL (at least in the UK) as the name for the breed of dog known in some other countries as the 'German Shepherd'... It was renamed back in WW1, due to anti-German prejudice.
