Inspiration For Your Nation

Postby Kedri » Mon Dec 31, 2012 11:17 am

What elements or features was your nation inspired by?

Kedri was inspired by pirates, mythology, 18th century Great Britain, the Caribbean, Pirates of the Caribbean, and France

The name Kedri was first used in a pirate story I never finished in the sixth grade and I came up with the name entirely on my own. Kedri was a geographically based on Florida with a parallel equivalent of the British empire.

I discovered NS in the ninth grade and thought a pirate themed nation would be cool. I was struggling for a name until I remembered the story and named the nation Kedri.

Originally, I was keeping it completely realistic where Kedri existed in our real world. That got boring, so I spiced things up by taking inspiration from the Last Airbender resulting in waterbending pirates and I also added some steampunk.

Kedri is a nation of 18th century pirates who know water-bending. Throw in some steampunk, as well. Tech level is PT/FanT.
Kedrians abandon piracy and become a modernized country, founded by reformed criminals who forsook piracy and the citizens are descended from pirates, and still retain some of their heritage such as speech, accent, politics.

The North bit is based on Vinland, so like Norse/Danish Vikings and Saxons, and the rest is a sort of Dutch ex-colonial Kingdom who are now colonisers like the British.

Retiring from NS, I wish you all the best in your future endevours :)

The idea of the FTCE was a technological corporation ruled society, where profit and tech development were more important than the common man. On the other hand I'm looking to see if I can have one that is relatively mobile and free without disastrously impoverishing the many. (The impoverishing part isn't doing so well)
I was inspired by Apple, the United States and the Weyland Corporation.

"What would it look like if an ancient New World type civilisation (similar to the Incas) managed to successfully fend off its conquistadores and developed into a modern state?"

Just add elected monarchy, confederation and some weird technological preferences, and don't forget the giant ground sloths.
