You may get a sentence for creating a Polandball. If it contains matter that promotes ethnic cleansing and racism (ie. "Remove kebab"), you may have your computer confiscated, receive a fine (varying from 100 to 500 Anollas), do community service, or even have time in prison/rehab (2 weeks to 1 month).

The government does not tolerate such things.

The nation is named after the opabinia, a shrimp-like animal from the Cambrian era. An unusually detailed and well-preserved fossil of an opabinia was found on the shores of the country, when the first non-indigenous Opabinians arrived.

The state capital is named after the ottoia, a worm-like animal that also came from the Cambrian era. A crystallized fossil of an ottoia was the first thing dug up during the construction of the city, and served as inspiration for the name.

Opabinia is home to many different indigenous cultures. A long time ago, a deadly plague swept through the country, killing about 60% of the indigenous population. Despite the tragedy of the situation, the sudden vacuum in the population allowed for a group of international refugees to settle into the land. Through cooperation between the refugees and the indigenous peoples, the modern state of Opabinia was founded.

  • Wanchou's old name was Nanchuria coined by European explorers from Nan-chu (Ch. 南珠) meaning 'pearl of the south', a poetic name for Wanchou which is also the name adopted many times by earlier ruling Emperors to describe his domain.
  • First European contact in Wanchou soil was during the 16th century.
  • Even before Western contact, Wan children were already playing with various intricately-decorated toys: kites, pellet drum, kendama, yo-yos, Chinese yo-yo, bamboo copters, pinwheels, embroidery ball, mancala, shuttlecock, tangrams, whistles, ocarina, roly-poly toy, flute, colorful marbles, zoetrope and rattles. Board games and sports, some of which resembles modern sepak takraw, football and golf, were also common among older people.
  • Karst hills in present day Hui region attracts many tourists and is listed as a World Heritage Site.
  • Cormorant fishing was once commonly practiced in ancient rural towns.
  • Southern Wanchou has many striking similarities to Southeast Asia and Polynesian cultures with the Hui region preserving many relics from past Hinduism. In fact, bamboo and stick games exist in the region.
  • In the Hui region, a game similar to Indian kho-kho is played by children.
  • Wanzhounese value ginseng which is abundantly grown in Beikoku (roughly Yi peninsula).
  • Archery and equestrianism is an ancient skill developed and shared among Wanzhounese people.

Inside homeless facility. Mr. Ted Hatchkophf has been on the streets and has found comfort in such a zone. He's enjoying his time going to Holy Mass at the cathedral and attending prayer in the chapel at the facility. He spends his evenings smoking cigars and walking in the court yard of the homeless facility. He has been doing a lot of soul searching and is in the program that will help him earn a living. In the picture he's chilling smoking a Texkentuck Gurkha in his personal bedroom at the facility.

Mr. Ted Hatchkophf before he was clean. During this time he wasn't able to enter the program but only allowed to use the lockers to the facility until he test negative on his drug habit.

Image"On Saturdays and Sundays the Homeless Zone Limousines arrive and take them to Museums, around downtown and Holy Catholic Mass at the Cathedral in the city.

In the Homeless Program Stretch Limousines have a bar inside with plenty of cokes, booze, etc. Countless times the homeless like to drink on the way to and from the museums. Sometimes secretly they show up to Mass drunk. If someones too intoxicated an ambulance by the homeless facility can be sent. The homeless program has doctors and nurses funded by the program.

Homeless man in the program. On the way to let his family know that they don't need to be on the street and they're in the program. He went through the process at a homeless center and a Homeless program limo drove him to get his family to bring to the facility.

Throughout every state subsidized by the states and federal government are zones known as Homeless Zones. It's a hotel in every Major City with up to 200 rooms for the homeless with 1000 lockers issued to those who qualify as homeless. These people on arrival walk in and apply to enter into a program that is set up to get the homeless back on their feet. Also their are councilors and doctors on staff as well as armed Texkentuck security officers who are of military and civilian standing. This is an initiative to help the downtrodden and mentally handicapped homeless. 75% who enter the program are no longer homeless with a job after 2 years. All who enter are issued a robe and a pair of slippers with a key to a locker. Their are 1000 Lockers at these facilities so those who can't get into a room and in a program have access to a locker and can use the showers. The robes and slippers are free to keep and the government will send these articles out to any citizen for free. The richest industries in Texkentuck donate 20% of their taxes to these facilities. In everyroom is a box of Texkentuck Federation box of Gurkha Cigars for the resident to enjoy.....

Postby The Disorder » Wed Feb 17, 2021 11:11 pm

Because the Disorder is composed of anarchists, recreational games and traditions are really weird.

One common game that Disorder agents play in their free time is "Green Box".

It is played simply by leaving the entry-airlock door into one's quarters unlocked (only for Green Box players), with a box painted green placed in plain sight.

Traditionally, players put a handful of pebbles in the green box, but any physical items that are uniquely identifiable & hold little physical and sentimental value will work. Random pieces of shrapnel or empty data chips are also popular green box items.

The objective of the game is to steal items from another's green box, and add them to your own green box.

Internal sensors and cameras make it easy for an individual to see who is responsible for stealing an item from their green box. From the time of the theft, both the 'thief' and 'victim' are allowed to engage one another in simulated combat - but only for one galactic day. All Disorder weapons have a simulation mode for this.

If the public internal sensors detect a hit scored upon a valid target in this combat simulation, then they are 'dead' for one galactic day. During this time, they cannot participate in the game of Green Box. They will not be able to enter other players' quarters during this time.

It is traditional (though not explicitly required) to shout "GREEN BOX!" upon successfully scoring a simulated kill. This alerts an ambushed player that they are dead, instead of having to find out after-the-fact when other Green Box players' doors will not open for them.

Green Box is so astoundingly popular, between fifteen and twenty percent of all Disorder agents are 'playing' at any given time.

Alingan have distorted view of the size of the Confederation, because the in the west half of Confederation live only the 18% of population, so in the imaginary the west half is smaller than reality or the east bigger than reality.

90% of population is mixed, so also tradition ten to be mix e more personal (mena that every family or single person have a own traditions that can differ than other because the mixture can form various degree of mixture).

Alingans tend to create new languages, so in Alinghi every years hundred of languages is born, and hundred of constructed languages die, but some survive. Some are spoken by a family or group (usually is a variation of the official languages).

The name of Alinghi derives by a invented name by a congressman's 4-years old son at moment of the discussion of the union of four colonies before the unification in 1756).

The actual Democratic Republic was born after a state coup what forces the King to within one year to indict a institutional referendum a new parliament, and abdicate in any case (if monarchy had won a new king would be choosen), it was one of the rare case that a state coup bring the democracy from an authoritarian rule.

Southern half Montserrat island was evacuated in 1995 and it has been covered by an exclusion zone since the Sofrera volcano volcanic eruption in 1995. All, settlements south the exclusion line were abandoned that year including the local airfield and the town capital Breda had to be rebuilt north of that line.

There has been at least one point in history for every major political party in which that party's leader in the representative assembly has been arrested.

Communist Party - July 19, 2001: Mark Zander, a party leader at the time, is arrested for smuggling illegal drugs on the premises of federal property.
Liberal Party - March 21, 1950: Maria Ziela, a former party leader, is arrested for disorderly conduct and theft after a New Year's Party the previous day (e-Obets celebrate the New Year on the last day of winter).
Center Party - May 4, 1888: Aaron Lee, who was the president at the time, was impeached and arrested for federal tax fraud.
Conservative Party - November 30, 1950: Daryl Ducker, a former party leader, arrested on same charges as Maria Ziela.
Nationalist Party - February 27, 2021: McGorman Govern, who resigned his position on the floor of the RA just a few days before, is arrested for reckless and drunk driving in the middle of the federal district in Zalinsky.

Our township is host to the Kermetic Cult - a post-apocalypic chiliasic cult centred around the worship of Kermit the Frog as a wrathful, Old Testament style deity. Technically speaking, we fall somewhere between an absolute Theocracy and a Thanatocracy; the cult is led by the Prophet Kermitson, but he is adamant that he is merely the vessel/instrument of Kermit Himself (and posesses his corporeal form, his most prized relic). Whether or not Kermit is considered alive, dead, or beyond mortality is not clear in the Kermetic scripture, but the fact He is prophesied to return suggests He is not living in a conventional sense.

The Prophet and his life partner, Trent, inadvertently saved the township from certain death to clandestine bioweapon testing five years ago, and as such the townsfolk decided to allow him to set up his ministry as thanks. Surprisingly, it's actually worked out quite well.
