Status of Western media in your nation

Postby Sinlenian Zindujan » Wed May 01, 2013 12:43 pm

This topic (and the poll) is for the nations who have bad relations with the Western world, particularly the United States.
In Sinlenian Zindujan most of the Western media is banned. Materials containing pornography, xenophobia and promotion of capitalist lifestyle are not permitted to be brought into the country. A lot of Western magazines are banned, yet some of them, which wasn't accused in anything counter-revolutionary are officially sold throughout the nation.
Internet is heavily censored. The so-called Buffer Servers are administrated by the People's Security Forces in order to prevent harmfull materials (such as pornography and malware) from reaching people's PCs.
Songs of musicians, accused in counter-revolutionary activities are banned, or just frowned upon (if they are politically neutral). In some cases we even have to apply drastic measures.

Considering we are part of the "West" all of our media is western. All foreign media whether it be from U.S, Canada, or other European countries are treated the same and are not restricted.

Well, the native media here is generally in a western style, so we do indeed allow western media. Indeed, it is quite popular among immigrants and the native-born humans.

It's completely free as is any other type of media; the problem is that the Serbian Empire's media often is too vulgar to be exported out.

Ruridova is a Western nation. Why would a nation built around freedom of expression restrict its own media?

We allow virtually everything, save for clearly biased political news (FOX News, CNN etc. - so both left and right wings.)
Alternate: The God-Emperors Terran Empire
The Cadian Dominion is the sixth incarnation of the Castavir Empire, which was first founded on march 13, 2003. This nation's tracker stats don't represent it's actual stats!
PS
On again - off again on NS; the Castavir Empire is mainly part of a private RP group.

There's too many threads for me to keep track of. If you want me to answer any questions please send a TG; so that I'm sure to see it. Thanks!

We have our own media, more sensitive to our culture, and lacks the Christophobic and hedonist aspects of American/European culture. Although we have friendly relations with said regions, our more conservative and traditional culture is not compatible with such media.

Moderately filtered and censored.

There are no state controls over the media in the Empire. Western media receives mixed impressions from Valk citizens. Some western films and television shows are praised. However much of western media is panned for its lack of intellectual fiber, its tendency to perpetuate ill stereotypes, and the vapid nature of those involved in the industry.

While it isn't banned, it has little popularity when compared to other media forms, such as from the East/Orient, Russia, and the Middle East.

We aren't technologically advanced enough to explore the entire universe.

Also, how the heck does 'being little creatures in a huge black ocean' mean that we have a western world?
