kholania_larts: The most borked nation in history?

Postby Tinhampton » Fri May 06, 2022 12:33 pm

kholania_larts has all custom fields (including the pretitle, which normally has a two-character minimum) set to "0," resides in the non-existent region of __ghost__, has 1 million population, had supposedly been founded in Antiquity (despite being officially founded at 1410 BST today, around the time the recent database connection errors began), was last active at the dawn of the Unix epoch in January 1970, and is first in Patriotism despite having a score of zero. How and why did this situation arise?

proud to be the first to challenge them

anyways --- and this is just my theory --- i think it's pretty likely that kholania_larts might be a test. for example, fields that usually are unobtainable exist --- "There is no government in the normal sense of the word," "defies classification", "probably because of the absence of a police force", "The 0 of kholania_larts has no detectable government spending," "Complete abolition of government," et cetera.
Thank you, Technoblade.

I'm also seeing the number 5 or 56 come up a lot.

But hey, at least it has diversity in the ways the people die!

Additionally, attempting to load any stat results in a first in the world ranking, and a blank page where the graph is supposed to be.

EDIT: Stats for it aren't calculated until they have been loaded in a view page, so they don't show on https://www.nationstates.net/nation=kho ... etail=rank. It just says "Data Compilation In Progress! The World Census is currently gathering data in order to rank kholania_larts on its award-winning global scales. Please check back soon for more rankings."

It's first in most WA endorsements as well.
≛ The Federal Reclamation Initiative of the United States of America ≛

The year is 2037, the world has been a nuclear wasteland since 1972. Southern rebels in the United States got their hands on nuclear devices and activated them. The hours following this saw the death of billions after miscommunications resulted in the Soviets launching their own silos. Luckily the Federal Government managed to retreat to bunkers across the country. Now they fight to restore their once great nation in a land filled with millions of the dead.

When I click on the region link for this one, I get sent back to my nation page... it's not even an invalid region, it just looks like it's blank.

If it was database issues, I'd think they'd be more concentrated in one place, rather than spread out, having different kinds, in different places.

Going to be watching this thread closely for any other nations discovered.

Deleted the nation in the OP. Looks like it got stuck in limbo during creation and didn’t finish the process properly. Let the admin know about it regardless.

Deleted the other mentioned nation too as it was part of a past bug and there really isn’t any reason to leave it floating in a non-region.

Dang… these bugs can get spooky…
WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

A totalitarian, socialist, fascist society ruled by a ruthless dictator known as Big Brother, the First Triumvir Donovan Xavier. The omnipresent and endlessly oppressive government is made up of four ministries: The Ministry of Truth, the Ministry of Love, the Ministry of Peace, and the Ministry of Surplus.

Takes up present-day Russia, China, Mongolia, Vietnam, and Taiwan.

Big Brother is watching you…

At least they didn't use-up a good name...
