Pop Culture in Free Norfolk City

Postby Free Norfolk City » Sat Jan 20, 2024 9:59 am

Every country in the world has it's own pop culture; its own entertainment (such as film, music, television and video games), sports, news (as in people and places in the news), politics, fashion, technology, and slang, and the Crystal Castle Republic is no exception to this rule. This is a list of iconic pop culture items, but it is not an exhaustive list:

1. NBC: The Norfolkite Broadcasting Corporation, or NBC, is the first and oldest major broadcast network in the Crystal Castle Republic of Free Norfolk City. It, alongside the Esvanovia Broadcasting Company, or EBC, due to their longevity and ratings success are informally referred to as the Big Two that dominated Norfolkite television until the nineties, and are still major broadcast companies to this day. The NBC is the traditional home of Baseball Night in Norfolk, often abbreviated Baseball Night or BNIN, broadcasts. The BNIN broadcast features various segments during the intermissions and between games, as well as pre- and post-game coverage of the night's games, and player interviews. It also shows the hosts' opinions on news and issues occurring in the league. It's also famous for the "Manager's Corner" segments, in which DeVerle LeSueur, one of the sport's most famous managers, hosts a commentary and analysis segment that made him one of the most polarizing and divisive figures in Norfolkite baseball, with the Manager's Corner being described as one of the most watched five minutes on Norfolkite TV. DeVerle's strong opinions at times led to repercussions, including several attempts by the NBC to fire him as well as numerous public complaints.

It's also sported long-running daytime dramas, game and talk shows, as well as programming for children and teens. NBC also holds the broadcast rights to several annual specials and award show telecasts. Seen as milquetoast and family friendly over the years, it was up to executives like Lochlan Douglas to (controversially) revamp the network's image, especially as other television networks were leading the way with more appealing programming. The famous filmmaker Arnol Smoot got his big break with a made for television film with NBC; he was known for directing films which addressed topical social and political issues, often making controversial or complicated subjects accessible to mainstream audiences. His movies can be described as a John Hughes movie if written and directed by Émile Zola. Currently, NBC's audience is evenly split between men and women.

2. YTV: Youth Television, better known as YTV, is a Norfolkite television channel that functions as the country's equivalent to real life channels like Nickelodeon and MTV. The channel and its programming is targeted at children to young adults, and consists of both original live-action and animated television series, movies, and third-party shows from various Garbanian and foreign-based networks. The channel blossomed during the late nineties and early noughties, with many shows such as Darla, Gizmos and Gadgets, and Metalomania becoming staples of Norfolkite television.

Darla Lebasque, the protagonist of the YTV adult sitcom, Darla, is cited by many Norfolkites as a personal heroine and cultural icon. She was played by the actress Juliette Petitpas, who considered it her favorite role.


The channel is also famous for its annual spring break coverage, featuring numerous live performances from artists and bands on location, and has been a tradition since the channel's founding; celebrities such as Juliette Petitpas, Red Hot Stephanie Austen and Dwayna Jeanson have hosted said coverage over the years.

The channel is also avaliable to college and university campuses as part of internally originated cable systems that are a part of on-campus housing, airing specialty programs for college and university students; the channel also funds student-made programming, and even invites promising students to apply for internships and scholarships.

III. Twisted Sisters: The Twisted Sisters were a Norfolkite girl group of the sixties and early seventies, best known for several hit pop songs of theirs that had a protopunk feel to them.

They consisted of Venus Barker, Brynn Keen, Heather Clifton, Tressa McKerras and Alison Rosson; they wrote songs specializing in adolescent themes such as alienation, loneliness, abandonment, and premature death, and their tough girl persona set them apart from other girl groups and would inspire the Borborite, riot grrl and other similar movements in later decades. They were one of the groups considered by historians to be part of the Norfolkite Invasion, a period in Garbanian culture and history where Norfolkite bands and musicians became very popular among Garbanians and their remaining colonies. Their music is a staple of Norfolkite radio and pop culture to this day, particularly in the district of Edmonton, where they were all from.

IV. Yo-Yo: Yo-Yo is a style of pop music that emerged in the District of Dojabad, best known for its infectiously catchy songs and their often sentimental, but sometimes risque, lyrics. It underpinned the Norfolkite counterculture during the sixties, and many of its artists have enjoyed enduring popularity, even though the genre itself was largely confined to that decade. Famous artists of the genre include Lia Labonté, simply known as Lia, whose song "Why Should I Change?" became a generational anthem.

Nanalyn Metius, whose debut album, "Hey, It's Nana," was considered one of the finest of the genre of N-Pop, and Ysabeau Bellefleur, who formed a trio, Little Free Birds, best known for their smash hit, "Chick Habits."

Image

Nanalyn Metius (left) is considered one of the most popular Norfolkite musicians; her music is heard throughout the Garbanosphere to this day.


Though largely confined to the sixties, Yo-Yo songs can be regularly heard on Norfolkite radio and television to this day, with quite a few of its artists having enduring popularity. The genre, critics note, simply gave way to a more edgier, grittier sound in the seventies, especially among female musicians who resented the stereotype that they were only good for "bubblegum pap," and though certain stars like Nanalyn and Lia experimented with a darker sound, the genre overall lost ground to the new sound of the new decade.

V. Borborites: Borborite (sometimes called the Shaiburg sound) is an alternative rock genre and subculture which emerged during the mid eighties (though some contend earlier) in the District of Shaiburg; the word Borborite comes from the Greek word βόρβορος, meaning "mud"; thus the name Borborites can therefore be translated as "filthy ones", which was considered a source of pride for those bands and musicians considered part of the genre; lyrics are typically angst-filled and introspective, often addressing themes such as social alienation, self-doubt, abuse, neglect, betrayal, social and emotional isolation, addiction, psychological trauma and a desire for freedom. Borborite music coincided with the nineties wrestling boom, the Gang of Five in Norfolkite baseball, and naturalism in video games. Precursors to the Borborite genre popped up during the seventies, particularly Jenny Alexander, the influential frontwoman for the band Jenny and the Harpies; "I wasn’t going to be told by my record company how to look," she told an interviewer in 1973, which was heralded by Borborite musicians as a motto and personal rule. The "angry young women," a group of mostly working and middle-class playwrights, novelists, and musicians, also influenced the Borborite genre; they were women who were disillusioned with traditional Norfolkite society, eschewing gender roles and societal expectations; however, the term was a mere media invention, since they weren't a clique (they scarcely knew each other) and only had anger in common. President Lorraine Kindrakewich, it is said, was inspired by those women growing up, and voraciously devoured their work. The early Borborite movement eschewed record labels in favor of DIY music, in which the bands themselves controlled the entire production and distribution chain, and popularized the guerrilla gig as well as leveraging creative ways of communication through self-published zines and other projects. As well, Garbanian acts, already popularized on YTV programming and by their songs being used as theme songs for professional wrestlers, helped shape and form the new sound.

Image

Avela Raoult is the lead singer of the Garbanian alternative rock band, Trash, whose eclectic, in your face style influenced many Norfolkite bands; while her own strong, independent character made her a role model for countless girls and women alike in the Garbanosphere. Her band still performs today, and is one of the best known examples of the Garbanian Invasion of the mid nineties, when bands like hers saw their music climb rapidly up on the Norfolkite charts.


One of the most popular Borborite bands is the all female band, Moksha, which was fronted by Selena Willis, the the lead vocalist, guitarist, primary songwriter and founding member. Her anti-establishment persona and socially conscious songwriting ensured she would be heralded as a spokeswoman for generations of Norfolkite girls and women alike; her guitar famously sported a THIS MACHINE KILLS MISOGYNISTS sticker. However, although she was hailed as the voice of her fellow women following Moksha's sudden rise to the top, she was uncomfortable with this role. While Norfolkite youth, male and female alike, venerated her, many adults criticized her, particularly after she said on a talk show when asked about her hobbies that, "I enjoy playing video games and tying up girls, mostly." Despite her open lesbianism, she rejected lesbian separatism, and wrote a song mocking self proclaimed gold star lesbians. She also rejected radical feminism, claiming that, "Feminism, to me, is about choice," and had no problem performing at the birthday party of a good friend's daughter. However, she struggled with the personal and professional pressures of fame, and was often in the spotlight for her tumultuous relationship with fellow musician Luetta Huyghebaert; after the latter died from a previously undiagnosed cerebral aneurysm, Selena hanged herself after struggling with guilt and shock, leaving the two other members, Katy Nevil and Wilma Cameron, to form a new band with Pinkie Suthmeer called Tie Fighters, though many fans distanced themselves from this band because they felt it was "too soft, too approachable," though some have stuck around. Indeed, after Selena's death, the Borborite genre began to lose its grip on the pulse of the public in the late nineties, having shared the top of the charts with bands from other genres such as shoegaze and power pop, but continues to maintain a significant following, especially with many making trips to Selena's grave to pay their respects; she was laid to rest beside Luetta, and their relationship is said to have helped fuel the drive to make LGBT rights a priority among politician and voter alike according to one critic.

Other Borborite bands include Susie in Fetters, Peyote Jelly, Paingasm, and the Love Buzzers, whom alongside Moksha, were called the Big Five; bands said to be Borborite-adjacent include Slim Jim, the Deadheads, the Militant Hitchhikers, and the Red Green Chili Peppers, although some critics and fans dispute this.

VI. Nu-Alt: A new, genre-splicing generation of singer-songwriters is taking over the rock scene, one critic said, as nu-alt, the 'new alternative,' which, unlike the Borborites, was a sound full of youthful exuberance and desire for recognition; its artists were vocal about their disdain for the Borborites, with Maelysse Kerambrun, the lead vocalist for the Nu-Alt band, Wham-O, criticizing their depressing lyrical content and writing them off as rubbish. Wham-O's song, "I'll Be a Rock 'n' Rollin' Bitch For You," off their debut album, "Welcome to the Fun Factory," is traditionally credited with bringing the genre to light, though bands like The Gatherers and Lost in Space had paved the way.

Image

Noella Le Garsmeur, simply known as Noella or Noe-Chan, was considered one of the earliest nu-alt acts; with her husband, Lennart Saxe, she formed the duo, Chickie Wah Wah. One of their best known singles, "Confetti," can best be described as sounding like how Massive Attack's Teardrop might've sounded with Madonna instead of Liz Fraser on vocals.


Trash, the seminal Garbanian band, was directly cited by fans and acts alike as a significant influence, especially with the band frontlining Alternapalooza, one of the biggest music festivals in the country, with bands and musicians from all over the Garbanosphere performing there; YTV's annual coverage of the event is as much a rite of passage to watch among Norfolkite youth as it is to attend in person. Nu-Alt was marked with fusing and mashing all sorts of genres and inspirations together, from old fashioned rock and roll to the rhythmic drumming and chanting of Ngombian tribals.

The Garbanian house and dance music group, the Sampladelics, best known for drawing vivid, multiracial, pan-sexual crowds, were a pivotal influence, with many Nu-Alt bands citing the Sampladelics' lead vocalist, Nancy Schexnayder, in particular, with her vivid fashion sense and uncompromising character.

Image

Nancy Schexnayder, popularly known as Sweet Nan, was a G-Pop sensation and fashion icon. Born and raised in Empire Bay, she believed that music was the universal language that could bring everyone together regardless of their differences. She supported a variety of progressive causes, as well.


Many Nu-Alt artists found themselves comprising the soundtracks of many dopey teen movies and hit video games, and their popularity spilled into the noughties, though began to dry up by the Tenties (2010s) as new sounds emerged, particularly the slowcore band, The Swift Currents, whose debut album "Her Groove Is My Everything" received critical acclaim. Other Nu-Alt bands include Nocturne, The Superblasters, Short Skirt-Long Jacket, Too Sweet, Nuclear Donkey, Abetton Baseball, Memory Lame, Black Hole Sunshine, Thunder Kisser, Lesbian Mustard Bottle, Sacred Chao, and the Nothing Naturals.

Image

Rhéanne Dupéré was the front woman of Nocturne, one of the nu-alt bands that gradually took over the spotlight from Borborite bands.


V. IPTN: The Indigenous People's Television Network is a Norfolkite specialty channel maintained by governmental funding; it airs and produces programs made by, for and about indigenous peoples, and is the first television network by and for the Crystal Castle Republic's indigenous peoples; it offers a variety of programming related to indigenous peoples, including documentaries, news magazines, dramas, entertainment specials, children's series, movies, sports events, educational programs and more. In 1979, the Norfolkite Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (NRTC) issued the Vellacott Committee Report, in which the committee concluded that Indigenous peoples had increasing interest in developing their own media services and that the government has a responsibility to ensure support in broadcasting of Indigenous cultures and languages. The committee recommended measures to enable indigenous peoples to use broadcasting to support their languages and cultures. The Anmhonmite Broadcasting Corporation, or ABC, was the first major attempt to do exactly that; a television production company, ABC's programs are all broadcast in Anmhonmite, and all production centres are staffed by Anmhonmites. It was the first indigenous language television network in the country, and existed until it was subsumed into IPTN, with it becoming that channel's 'at home wing,' catering to the Anmhonmite population. The goal of IPTN was to produce radio and television programs in indigenous peoples' languages to reflect their cultural perspectives. However, while it offers programs for Ngombian viewers, it does not specifically include them in its mission statement, as Ngombians are not considered indigenous to either Free Norfolk City proper or the Esvanovian colony; as such, such programming is developed as a courtesy rather than an obligation. The Anglo Saxons are also not considered indigenous peoples, and they have their own broadcast and cable television network also.

VI. Esvamania: It would not be a complete look at Norfolkite society and culture without referring to Free Norfolk City's sole colony, Norfolk-in-Esvanovia, in particular the phenomenon known as Esvamania, in which many in Norfolk-in-Esvanovia attempted to assert cultural independence from Free Norfolk City. It all began on December 6, 1973 when Timon Kittredge, a prominent essayist who wrote for the Charlottechurch Courier, penned his seminal essay, "Eikonoklastes," the title being taken from the Greek, and means "Iconoclast" or "breaker of the icon," chosen because Kittredge's point was that the colony had to establish itself culturally, to show it had so much more to offer than what most thought; his essay sparked a firestorm of debate among all walks of life—one story tells that a john booked the services of a prostitute simply because he wanted someone to talk about the essay with, only to find that she wanted to talk about it too. Israel "Izzy" Varnell, the prolific power hitter for the Edmonton Eddies, coined the phrase, "I am Esvanovian," in reference to being born and raised in the colony; it became something of a protomeme in how quickly viral it became, despite the absence of the internet in 1969. Varnell ended up seeing the controversy surrounding the phrase overshadowing his prestigious career, which he came to regret after his retirement. Wenzel Paskin, an agent for the Monmouth Bay Trading Company, recieved a petition from the indigenous peoples of the Esvanovian colony, as well as the Countryborn (the mixed-race descendants of Garbanian settlers and indigenous peoples), for not only more autonomy, but more recognition of their cultures and traditions; of note was Anehih Yoet, a representative from Île de Femme, which is best known for its matriarchal culture; there was a fear among the islanders that their unique way of life (particularly their use of strict matrilineal primogeniture, which is a form of succession in which the eldest female child inherits the throne, to the total exclusion of males and descendants through males) was under threat from the MBTC's Norfolkization policies; Kunibert Ozanne, one of the Esvanovian representatives in the House of Representatives, not only quoted Varnell, but sparked debate over the increasingly archaic Company rule, when he proposed a bill that would see it abolished; when the Monmouth Bay Trading Company scolded him for this, he merely replied that he was working on behalf of his constituents, not their shareholders; this was followed up with town hall meetings getting rather heated, especially during the Summer of '92, where the controversial bailout of the MBTC by President Gignac's administration still echoes throughout the years since, as many have claimed that Gignac's reforms were solely meant to delay the undelayable.

What we know as Esvamania kicked off properly during the nineties, most notably with Iyatah Draes, a Manamanan historian, appearing on Free Norfolk City's equivalent to PBS to be interviewed; she famously proposed that Norfolkite egalitarianism was culturally insensitive, which sparked numerous debates nationwide, especially when compared to the egalitarianism of the Tomatek and the patriarchal society of the Totecans. Indeed, Ghasvan Ghonrakan, a Totecan elder, echoed Draes' remarks with those of his own, defending the aforementioned patriarchal society. This was not to say that the Manamanans or Totecans held the other gender in bondage; after all, the federal government was quite happy to remind them that that was illegal; rather, old habits die hard.

Image

Addison Davis is a singer-songwriter, actress, and television presenter from Norfolk-in-Esvanovia. Her considerable popularity is often cited as one of the best known examples of Esvamania.


The writer Soren Granholm from Bradfordville coined the term when he covered the rise in radio and television stations opting for local acts and programs rather than simply importing from Free Norfolk City or Garbania, most notably Addison Davis, a child/teen sensation who first had her big break on public television, raising money with other local acts on a telethon. It did not help matters that the Federal response to the events of the Summer of '92 was found wanting, with many in Norfolk-in-Esvanovia protesting in the streets. It did not help that the colony was sitting in the middle of a constitutional limbo; a proper constitution had been debated for years, constantly vetoed for various reasons, and until one finally gets passed, the people of the Esvanovian colony find themselves asking the question: without a constitution, what kind of nation are we? Esvamania had grown in the fertile soil of decades of politicial dissident, with the Feds regularly accused of exercising insufficient oversight over the colony.

The Covenant

Postby Free Norfolk City » Wed Feb 07, 2024 2:56 am

Image

The Garbanians making first contact with a Ngombian tribe.


The debt of gratitude that the Ngombians owe the Garbanians after their invaluable assistance in the war against Mareyland is referred to as the Covenant, in which the Ngombians fulfill by taking on tasks that the Garbanians need done, such as war with Garbania's enemies. In Garbania, the Garbanians afforded the Ngombians every opportunity to thrive. While outsiders and even some Garbanians regard the Ngombians as junior partners, if not actual servants, Ngombians have integrated themselves into nearly every level of Garbanian society as respected productive citizens, such as in the court of the Duc de Despojanbourg or in the famous Infanterie Ngombienne regiments.

Any Ngombian can refuse service, however few turn down the offer as serving the Garbanians is considered a great honour in Ngombian society, as the Ngombians earn honour not only for themselves, but for their families as well; having a son or daughter chosen to serve a Garbanian family is a point of pride for any Ngombian parent. Many Ngombians who turn down the offer to serve the Garbanians move overseas; they are welcome to do so. Ngombians who leave Ngombia usually become lone adventurers, and they typically seek out other peoples and adopt their culture. Outside of Garbania, it is common to find Ngombians who take more to Norfolkite culture, whether in Free Norfolk City proper or Norfolk-in-Esvanovia, or even the cultures of other peoples in the Garbanosphere entirely.

When Free Norfolk City reluctantly declared independence, a significant chunk of its Ngombian population left the country, believing that the terms of the Covenant mandated their return to Ngombia, or elsewhere in the Garbanian colonial empire, though quite a few remained and transferred their allegiance to the Crystal Castle Republic.

Who's Who in the Garbanosphere: Norfolkites I

Postby Free Norfolk City » Mon Feb 12, 2024 3:34 am

The following characters are of the Norfolkite variety. This list will be updated when inspiration strikes, and is not in any particular order. Feel free to telegram about any who interest you.




Shala'Zoris des Ishusis - Indigenous noblewoman from Île de Femme who seeks adventure and riches. A couple cute girls fighting for space on her lap wouldn't be so bad, either.
Desmond Desmondson - One of Free Norfolk City's finest soccer players; described as a player with pace and predatory instincts that make him a danger inside the penalty area; has proved he can score against tough opponents. One of the country's most popular (male) celebs.
Ashanyit Taatalir - Born in a quaint village of Île de Femme; her parents are traditionalists alarmed at her modernist sympathies, but they love her nonetheless. She currently does odd jobs around the village, but dreams of saving up enough money to see the world. She is single, but don't expect her to just be a tag-along. She won't walk behind, only beside, whosoever successfully courts her. After all, the women of Île de Femme aren't exactly known for their subservience.
Kirby McKay - Kirby "Kiki" McKay is the coach of the District of Winchestertonfieldville's ice hockey team, the Whirlwinds, known for his high level of energy, aggressive play calling, and interactions with the media. Many fans and journos alike remark that he initially felt out of place for a team in such a quaint, soft-spoken district, but they've warmed up to him since then, and he has done quite well with the team; so much so that he's one of Norfolkite hockey's longest-tenured coaches.
Luella Mattix - One of Free Norfolk City's up and coming actresses, twenty three year old Luella Mattix rose to fame at the age of seventeen when she played the role of an Esvanovian rancher's niece in the series, Heartsdale, recieving significant mainstream media success in the process. Nollywood, the Norfolkite equivalent of Hollywood, wanted to recruit her right away, but she consistently refused to get into movies until Heartsdale had concluded, not wanting to ruin the show (she played the role of the protagonist) as she had been approached around the tail end of the first season. It was only after the series ended that she accepted her first movie deal...
Juliette Petitpas - One of Free Norfolk City's foremost actresses, Juliette Petitpas is best known for playing the role of the titular protagonist in YTV's Darla. Born into an ethnic Garbanian family, Juliette has been in show business since she was five, but her parents opted to be her agents because they did not trust anybody in the industry. She did some bit roles for public television before she was discovered by Silas Marner-Volney, one of the better known writers at YTV, later to be known for his work on the Blayze Rushton franchise of action films; his claim to fame was being one of the head writers on NBC's Top Spin, a live action sitcom about Connie Shepard, a new girl who moves from rural Esvanovia to Free Norfolk City and ends up the starting pitcher and captain of her school's baseball team; the show being controversially cancelled fueled Silas' drive to find not only a new project to work on, but a means to show the execs what's what.
Prince Davirarducius Epimanḗs ("The Mad") was one of the leaders of the Garbanian invasion of Anmhonm, but moreso known for his often eccentric behaviour and capricious actions during his interactions with people than his actions on the battlefield. He is remembered as a major villain and persecutor in Anmhonmite tradition due to his blatant disregard for the welfare of the locals and his misogynistic views of women as little more than his playthings; his father Prince Theodeyand famously rebuked him, and sent him back to Garbania, giving command of his forces to the more prim and proper general, Gepaard Marasaud, who was appointed Comte de Suara and given the hand of Lady Ynna Petilamont in marriage. However, while many ancient sources are hostile to Davirarducius, some modern historians are skeptical of them as well.
Synabyth Adraav was a Garbanian socialite and preservationist; noted for her wit, sharp tongue, and devotion to learning, Synabyth was a member of the once significant Garbanian settler population that once lived in colonial Anmhonm—during colonial rule, there was plenty of intermixing between the Garbanians and Anmhonmites, which formed the nucleus of what would become the Norfolkite people; her own family married into, and vice versa, both Anmhonmite and 'Proto-Norfolkite' (that is, the descendants of the initial Anglo-Saxon emigres) families. She lived at the Adraav family plantation and her best friend was Katja Stoltensteen.
Anaïs Deschamps is a Norfolkite socialite and salonnière of Garbanian descent; she is a direct descendant of Corrhnainluin Motuardt, Duc de Sakkra, via his son, Glovdach. It was at her salon that the famous satirist and comedian, Bartholomeus vandeBerg, proposed skateboarding be the only legal way to travel around the country, as well as where Aleksandar Yanev, Brenda Jean Ornelas, Elisa Gurner, Gennady Medovoy, and William Wallace Ornstein, on the eve of the feast day of Saint Leibowitz, formed their clique during the Summer of '92.
Simone Belle Kashouf - Famous fashion model and beauty pageant champion; was Miss Teen Norfolk and Miss Norfolk, being one of a select few to win both titles. Considered a modest woman with a lovely character, is currently trying to break into opera, which she considers to be her passion.
Johnny Brazeau - A beloved cultural icon among the Ngombians, Johnny Brazeau was the lead vocalist and sole songwriter of the hit N-Rock band, Swamp Boogie Queen, one of the most popular and musically influential bands in the history of Ngombian music. He started writing songs as a teenager, and co-founded the band; he is regarded as one of the most important pioneers of rock music in Ngombia, and is credited with popularizing the genre throughout the island country. He retains a devoted following throughout the Garbanosphere. He tragically committed suicide, it having turned out that his eccentric and happy-go-lucky public persona was masking chronic depression. Ngombians the world over consider both his birthday and the anniversary of his death to be unofficial holidays.
Jean-de-Dieu Brazeau - A Ngombian general in the Imperial Garbanian Army; Johnny Brazeau was one of his descendants. Kidnapped and enslaved as a child by the Mareylanders, he eventually was traded to Garbania, and presented as a gift to the Emperor Amaurbert, where he was freed, adopted and raised in the Emperor's court household as if he were his own son. Ngombians consider him one of their folk heroes, and in numerous polls, he ranks high on the most famous/important Ngombians of all time lists. He married Francesca Bechini, with whom he had five children; Ngombians call him the Liberator because he grew up to be the leader of a great and mighty force that expelled the Mareylanders from Ngombia.
Tahmasb Zurithalissaran - Tahmasb Zurithalissaran was the Garbanian prince who eloped to Anmhonm during the reign of the Emperor Idhdhuag, after his "unlawful" elopement with Synnadette Matrvanne, a common maid; the Emperor infamously disowned him upon his fifth, final request to leave Synnadette, who was heavily laden with child. Tahmasb, with his loyal retainers, established a plantation in Anmhonm, currently a museum, where he lived with his beloved. Although his father disowned him, the colonial government still held some belief in the supposed power and authority of his blood, and treated him no differently than they had prior. Tahmasb's descendants took the surname Gavaudon, and still exist today. It is said to be a 'stroke of ironic fate' that Jharulmas Gavaudon was the only one to enthusiastically sign the Norfolkite Declaration of Independence.
Faustin-Élie Amoussou - Faustin-Élie Amoussou was the sole Ngombian to sign the Norfolkite Declaration of Independence; a veteran of the Caprona War, he chose to sign because he believed that the Garbanians had dishonored his fellow soldiers who did not return home, a belief held by many veterans who had returned to Norfolk after war's end; he held that, by doing so to the Ngombian soldiers in particular, the Garbanians had reneged on their promise to the Ngombian people, and thus no longer deserved loyalty. He was also known for trying to quell the Great Anarchy by non-violent means, and was one of the inagural officers in the Norfolkite Army.
Alixenander Chaognese - Garbania's first Ambassador to the Crystal Castle Republic. Despite his loyalty to the Imperial Court, he privately revealed to his Norfolkite hosts that he believed their independence was undeserved, that the Emperor was something of an idiot. He was present at the independence day festivities, and thanks to his connections, avoided being fired from his position when he delivered his own speech rather than the stock one provided to him.
Hans-Adam Von Hohenhau - Hans-Adam Von Hohenhau is credited with having founded the country's central bank, and was essentially the Crystal Castle Republic's first finance minister. He pushed for free trade with foreign nations, and pushed for policies that resemble the ideas found in Thomas Paine's Agrarian Justice, believing that the best government was one that enabled the success of all; for all, by all, especially in contrast to the tight state controls in Garbania at the time.
Laëtitia Marie Laure Haddaway - Lady Haddaway was one of the first salonnières of post-independence Free Norfolk City; her salon was home to many spirited poliical and religious debates, most notably those between supporters of Norfolkite independence, and those who favored attempting to regain the Emperor's favor and, ultimately, reunion with the empire; she herself often claimed to be no respector of persons, and let any and all speak their mind, without censure. Her salon also hosted Hans-Adam Von Hohenhau's numerous lectures on his ideas for the economy, as well as Henk du Plooy's proposal for universal conscription; ahead of his time, 'Ol Henk proposed that women not be exempt from conscription. "If women are equal to men," he said, "And they are to possess all rights we men do as citizens of this Republic, then shouldn't they bear all the responsibilities, too?"
Yhannis Doe - Yhannis Doe, born to a Norfolkite father and Ngombian mother, was one of the first uniquely Norfolkite agents of the Monmouth Bay Trading Company, tasked with helping ensure that the handover of Garbania-in-Esvanovia to Norfolkite rule went smoothly and peacefully. Doe also worked to provide a reason for many Ngombian settlers to stay rather than flee for Ngombia due to the sociocultural taboos surrounding the Covenant; he was well liked by settler and indigenous alike, and a statue of him can be found in Charlottechurch, the capital of the Republic's sole colony.
Dalaillnibal Merovanne - Born into the Garbanian minority, Dalaillnibal Merovanne campaigned for the Republic amongst his fellow Garbanians, aiming to stem the brain drain caused by the departure of many Garbanian loyalists for Garbania proper following independence; he also pushed against the program of de-Garbanization, which he felt crippled his efforts. He wrote several articles and essays against those who were against independence, and also helped kickstart the creation of the District Guards, the country's equivalent to the United States National Guard.
Jean-Jacques Golou - J.J. Golou was a political radical whom, with his colleagues, helped to create the Norfolkite Way to Success, inspired by real life ideologies such as Gaddafi's Third International Theory. The Norfolkite Way to Success strongly emphasizes the individual, the nation state, and national sovereignty; it posits that a country will prosper once it has become self-reliant by achieving political, economic, and military independence. Rejecting the left-right spectrum, Golou's quote, "Not Right, Not Left, But Forward!" defined the movement, which was defined by Golou as a government model for Norfolkites, by Norfolkites; however, echoing Stalin's socialism in one country, neither Golou nor his associates felt the need to spread their newly minted ideology to foreign lands, citing that those countries had their own circumstances and, thus, they needed their own models to deal with them accordingly. The Norfolkite Way to Success can best be described as what if Libya actually, sincerely, tried to implement the ideas in Gaddafi's Green Book, though there are some tweaks to the formula.
Richilda Hawkins - Richilda Hawkins was one of the radicals who helped formulate the Norfolkite Way to Success; her contribution to the ideology was that Deism should stay the state religion, and that parents who subscribed to other religious beliefs should be able to send their kids to schools that offered a cirriculum based on their beliefs; as such, both public and private, religious-themed schools began to crop up in the country. Hawkins also contributed the staunch egalitarian bent of the Republic, with women considered fully able and capable to live full, meaningful lives. However, she controversially opposed ending conscription, especially for women; when one critic asked if she'd fight in a war, she replied, "You need only give me a gun and tell me who to shoot."
René Guinan Clarke - René Clarke was one of the radicals who formulated the Norfolkite Way to Success; his contribution was to steer things towards a left-libertarian direction; or, rather, to maintain the various concessions made previously such as the implementation of Henry George's land tax ideas, as well as the return of surplus public revenue to the people by means of a citizen's dividend. Clarke believed that such things ought to be considered sacrosanct, and that any attempts to repeal them should be met with severe, inflexible power. He coined the phrase, "The people are the greatest resource of any country," and pushed for anything that would maximally, let alone sufficiently, empower the Norfolkite people. In fact, he coined the phrase, "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for our children," and later on added, "Because the Republic is a light that must never be extinguished from the Earth," because while the Norfolkite Way to Success was not meant to be preached to foreign nations, it was hoped it would inspire them to create their own ways to success. Clarke was considered the most left-wing of the radicals, but personally saw himself not a peddler of ideology, but a proponent of plain, common sense.
Vladimir Vasilyevich Stalinovskovichdavidovitchsky - Known simply as V.V.S due to his rather unusually long name, Vladimir was yet another radical who helped create the Norfolkite Way to Success; his contribution was that the country should be turned into an impenetrable fortress; his ideas are reminiscent of North Korea's Songun policy, which put him at odds with his fellows. However, he did not advocate interventionism, believing it was not the responsibility of the Republic to pick up the slack of other nations. He advocated significant boosts to the military's budget, especially given the presence regionally of powers like the dreaded Kravenites, as well as fears in Norfolk-in-Esvanovia that the Monmouth Bay Trading Company would be unable to protect the colony's borders in case of war with regional powers there, most notably Aureumterra.
Renée Kalaiki-Ali'i - Born and raised in Fort Lauperdale, N.I.E, Renée Kalaiki-Ali'i is a Norfolkite television host, comedian, writer and producer best known as the host of her very successful, late-night talk show. She is considered the longest-serving, female late-night talk show host in Norfolkite television history, as well as the second longest-serving, period. During the time of 'Esvamania,' back in the nineties, she was at the forefront of promoting colonial culture, fashion and cuisine, which earned her numerous accolades. She has also been actively politically, in that she regularly campaigns to get folks to register to vote.
Lori Lipschitz - Nadia Felix's best friend, Lori is basically your average, modern teenage girl; her style resembles the real life, 'e-girl' style just like Nadia's, and the two regularly hang out at all the city state's popular teen hangouts.
Aisha Al-Shammary - Aisha Al-Shammary is sometimes called Aisha Al-Mammary due to her being rather buxom a la Abby Shapiro; as such, she is considered one of the country's foremost female news anchors. While she would prefer to be known for her hard work and many journalistic accolades, she has often brushed off people's fixation with her looks, saying that she refuses to let them get to her and make her feel bad for the body God gave her. When she went online to post a selfie with her boyfriend, baseball player Sylvester Takaza, many men (and bi, lesbian women) were said to have gone into mourning online, with many memes being made as a result. She reputedly chose Takaza because, as she put it, baseball players are her weakness.
James Samuel Ladner-Royce - J.S. Ladner-Royce was another figure made popular during the era of Esvamania; as the Mayor of Charlottechurch, he went about a massive campaign of urban revitalization in the hopes of luring both Norfolkite and foreign tourists to the colony, especially the capital. Folks called him 'Unca Jim because he was often as approachable and down to earth as a wise, venerable uncle; he would regularly dine in local diners rather than restaurants, and listened to people's concerns and complaints without question. He also hosted the visit of the Emperor Tristelomon, the first visit to the colony by a Garbanian monarch in over a century, and was a prominent supporter of the Charlottechurch Cavaliers, the capital's ice hockey team. Unlike in Garbania, where political offices are held as long as the politicians want to keep running and as long as the people keep electing them, there are strict term limits in Norfolkite politics; from the Presidency on down, one is only allotted two terms; according to current law, the mayors of Esvanovian municipalities are limited to two consecutive five-year terms in office, and are forbidden by law to run again thereafter. As such, after his second term, Ladner-Royce retired from politics and became a bovine veterinarian.
Maître Issouf Baadho - Known simply as 'Le Maître,' among his supporters, Issouf was best known as a latter-day sage; he advised against following any doctrine, discipline, teacher, guru, or authority, including himself and emphasized topics such as choiceless awareness, psychological inquiry, and freedom from religious, spiritual, and cultural conditioning. Although erronously attributed to the Buddha in real life, Baadho famously told people, "Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it..." at a free (he refused to charge people even a single cent) lecture at the famous Café De René. He warned his associates on several occasions that they were not to present themselves as spokesmen on his behalf, or as his successors after his death, and that anyone who did should be rejected to the utmost. He famously lived plainly like one might see among the Amish, and had little to no possessions save for his walking stick and cloak. He did not claim to be a prophet nor a deity, but rather saw himself as nothing more than a friend to all. His goal was to bring about a revolution; not politically, but rather ethically. He did not call himself 'master,' in the sense that he wanted authority over others, but rather that he wanted to be the master of the Self. In his dying breath, he ordered that to avoid his tomb being a place of pilgrimage for his followers that his body should be donated to science, with the caveat that the skeleton should be destroyed after the researchers were done with his remains, so as to ensure nobody could steal it and lose sight of what was important: serving one's community.
Jérôme-Napoléon Hoddonu - Born to a Ngombian father and Garbanian mother, Jérôme-Napoléon Hoddonu was one of the first officers of the Norfolkite Navy. He was a tall, imposing man; general characteristics among the Ngombi people include long legs, narrow bodies, and short trunks, adaptations to Ngombia's hot climate; in fact, a study of Ngombians like him suggested that Ngombi people "may attain greater height if privileged with favorable environmental conditions during early childhood and adolescence, allowing full expression of the genetic material." He served with valor in the Caprona War, and sailors remarked often that he was a firm, but fair, captain. After the war, he was appointed captain of the ship bearing Princess Beulah of Garbania, the namesake of the Ngombian province of Beulahland; rumor had it that she was quite smitten with him, but he refused her flirtatious advances en route to his homeland, not wanting to put her, let alone him, at risk. He was eventually stationed in Free Norfolk City, where he helped train new sailors; during the Great Anarchy, he commanded the ships that fired on rioters who had taken over coastal defenses, and for his efforts, was given the first Norfolkite medals ever minted. He was later given command of the Esvanovian Squadron, and upon his retirement, lived in a chateau on (TBD) Island, where he penned his memoirs. His death was mourned by many; he insisted that he be buried at sea, and he was after his funeral.
Kiki Ngui - Born in the Esvanovian town of Eylstadt, Kiki Ngui was the Norfolkite equivalent to musicians like Pat Benatar and Suzi Quatro, basically; during her heyday, she scored a string of singles that found success in the Garbanosphere; one in particular, Pleasure Seeker, became something of an unofficial anthem for the entire colony; or, rather, its youth that were increasingly disenchanted with Company rule. Although she was surpassed by other, more famous acts, they all insisted Ngui paved the way. She's still making music to this day, and is the host of her own podcast (formerly radio show), Kickin' It With Kiki, in which she provides news and other information in the world of music, interviewing both industry veterans and upcoming stars.
Ian Brandon Anderson - Basically, Ian's Free Norfolk City's equivalent to Emperor Norton; much like him, he has been immortalized as the basis of characters in the literature of many authors past and present. His schtick was that unlike Norton, who proclaimed himself monarch, Anderson took upon himself the title of regent, believing that he would lead a committee that would appoint a monarch, though he never did quite state anyone specific. He believed that monarchy was not only the default government of mankind and, thus, perfect for the newly minted country, but that the best monarch for the country would be homegrown; thus, one might consider him a proto-nationalist, even if likely mentally ill. He is considered the first, and thus most famous, case of a sovereign citizen in Norfolkite history, because he refused to acknowledge the laws of the nascent republic; however, the police were ordered to leave him be; in fact, they saluted him as he passed on the street and, at one point, during a heated discussion between monarchists loyal to the indigenous monarchy and those to the Imperial Family of Garbania, he stood on a small box and challenged their leaders directly, telling them and their assembled supporters to disperse and go home; Anderson was unsuccessful, but the incident was widely reported in local papers over the next couple of days, especially when he took the opportunity to propose the creation of an elective monarchy; while not the first proponent of the idea - that title belongs to Victor Emmanuel Kuuzegh - he did get a bit more attention, especially because he insisted that he personally organize any election. Two stray cats, Rosie and Josie, were said to be his pets; he would share his meals with them, and they would always follow him wherever he went. Recognized for their unique bond and their prodigious rat-killing ability, they became a fixture of city newspapers, were exempted from local ordinances, and immortalized in cartoons, most notably an early 'manga' style series which praised the virtues of both cats and recounted their various adventures together. After both died, they were mounted by a taxidermist and placed on display on each side of Anderson's grave; his own death in complete poverty, contrary to rumours of wealth, was marked poetically with a lovely festival celebrating the service of the 'Regent of Norfolk,' which ironically coincided with the final end of monarchism as a relevant ideology in Norfolkite politics.
Zoroastra Rakhshani - Zoroastra Rakhshani is considered to be the greatest of all time in women's baseball; she set many records that remain unbroken to this day, and it is commonly believed that had she been born a man, she might've very well be one of the, if not the, greatest of all time still. Her home run race with Zola Lombardi was the stuff of legend, and helped, among other things, to reinvigorate Norfolkite baseball; as well, it helped take people's minds off the events of the Summer of '92.
Justine Jouthe - Madame Jouthe was the founder and namesake of Jouthe, a Norfolkite publisher that initially published novels for women; it also started a monthly magazine called Bijou (Jewel) that was described as a magazine for elegant women. Jouthe was bisexual and openly conducted relationships with women while being married to a man; she is credited with having originated the phrase "book club" as a discreet code for lesbian or bisexual women who concealed their true sexuality. She wielded considerable influence and power in the literary world, and was made famous by her family connections and her reputation as a witty conversationalist. Her charm and humour made her a popular guest at salons and pubs, and she helped many Esvanovian authors get their big breaks; she was the first foreign hire of the L'Académie des Femmes, an all-female academy in Île de Femme; however, many of her essays about her experiences there were suppressed by cultural puritans, and were only published rather recently.
Josette Le Houerou - Affectionately called 'Jojo' by her adoring fans, Josette Le Houerou was a vedette and dancer renowned as one of Charlottechurch's cutest and notorious courtesans; she referred often to a woman called "Votre Altesse," or Your Highness, whose name was Valérie-Pâquerette de Kergaradec; she taught her everything that she needed to know, and then some; she inspired numerous authors and playwrights, and soon enough, so did Josette, who was essentially her protege. When Valérie-Pâquerette de Kergaradec went missing after she joined an expedition into the Ngombian interior (she was later declared deceased), Josette took up the torch, and made her mark with her vivid, stunning dance routines. However, while her old friend was quite open to most clients, Josette developed a reputation for being picky, so much so that she ultimately quit the trade and married Benio Hanamura, who ran a popular restaurant on Kuronami Street in the District of TBD. The politician Charles Taylor Hadler, who founded the Norfolkite Monetary Reform Association, which advocated C.H. Douglas' social credit ideas, was famously rebuked by her when, after a speech, she quipped, "Once again, stealing the fruits of labor from other people for dubious theory," which provoked widespread laughter.
Elma Fujieda - Elma Fujieda was a Norfolkite pharmacist with a practice on Kuronami Street, best known for creating one of the country's first energy drinks, Sonomi, which she named after her daughter. The drink was originally marketed to tired mothers who needed a pick-me-up, and was so named because Sonomi was such a hyperactive bundle of joy, Elma felt really out of it even before the day ended. The drink is still sold today, and has gone through many changes since it was created in 1917.
Jeanne-de-Dieu Ezeonu - Born to a Ngombian father and 'Old' (that is, Anglo-Saxon) Norfolkite mother, Jeanne-de-Dieu Ezeonu was raised in a spiritually eclectic family; her mother had her baptized and christened, and took her to her first communion, but her father instilled in her a deep-seated respect for her ancestors, as ancestor worship is a core component of Ngombian spirituality and culture; in fact, the Ngombi responded quite interestingly to Christianity in that they adopted a seemingly Christopagan position, simply adding Jesus and the Virgin Mary to their pantheon. As such, Jeanne-de-Dieu Ezeonu was bound to become the itinerant mystic she turned out to be, regularly participating in missions to the Ngombian interior and teaching Ngombian culture and traditions to Garbanian and Norfolkite students. Her central practice was rather similar to the Latihan of Subud, and attracted followers of all kinds. She did not establish any cult or sect, so upon her death, most people moved on, but she is still rather fondly remembered as an advocate for Ngombian interests.
Starla and René Starmer - they are the owners of the Café De René, a renowned, family owned open-air coffee shop that is a national landmark and tourist destination; in fact, it's on the National Register of Historic Places, having been deemed worthy of preservation for its historical significance; after all, it was here that the Norfolkite Declaration of Independence was officially presented to the public, read out loud, in full, by its author, Valdémard Lanthier. All fifty five signers of the Declaration of Independence were present, and their names (and portraits) are proudly displayed on the café wall.
Theodoros Ioannis Askiates - T.I. Askiates was the only Christian signer of the Norfolkite Declaration of Independence; born into a "Eastern Lutheran" (that is, a blend of Lutheran theology with Orthodox liturgics) family, his personal seal was based on Luther rose, but the cross in the center was changed into an Orthodox cross. His family were originally well esteemed in Garbania, but they took their talents to the Republic after a business dispute gone awry.
Catriona Caripides - An opera singer often called the Norfolkite Nightingale, she was one of the most highly regarded singers of the nineteenth century; she performed in performed in soprano roles in opera across the Garbanosphere, and undertook an extraordinarily popular concert tour of Garbania in 1855, which continued for two years, though a third was added due to popular demand. The tour provoked a popular furore dubbed Catrionamania by the local press, especially when Caripides donated her profits to her favorite charities, principally the endowment of free schools in Ngombia. She continued to perform for years afterward, until she eventually settled down, marrying her husband Joseph Jenkins Scharf, with whom she had three children, and opening up a school for young women who wanted to break into opera, or just theatre in general. Catriona lived a long life, becoming a near-centenarian, with her voice reputedly still intact; a popular joke is that the Gods grew too impatient, and called her home to perform for them. You can hear preserved samples of her voice at the Museum of National History, as well as see pictures of her with Louis-Philippe Kandrand-Tzau, who wrote the lyrics for the Norfolkite national anthem, and Pierre-Louis Danou, who composed the music; in the case of the latter, the music shares an uncanny resemblance to the real life hymn "Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika" (English: "Lord Bless Africa"), which was composed by Xhosa composer Enoch Sontonga. As well, you can see her foremost protege, Yana Lysovyska, whose big break was singing the national anthem on the first day of Norfolkite independence, with such a stirring rendition that the festivies reputedly ended up looking and sounding like a funeral with so many people weeping profusely.
Kasia Rayne Redford - Alongside her Ngombian husband, Issouf Soumaré, she founded the Museum of Medical Oddities, a peculiar tourist trap in the country that became really famous in an episode of YTV's Darla. Lady Redford got the idea for the museum upon, during her visit to Ngombia, seeing how the funerary practices of the interior tribes differed from those of the so called "civilized" tribes along the coast; her husband Issouf was of the latter, and took her with him on research trips into the interior.
André Assogba - Assogba was the lone Ngombian signer of the Norfolkite Declaration of Independence; he initially wanted to refuse, despite being given the title of representative of the Ngombian community, but at the behest of his non-Ngombian wife, Mei Liu, he signed the declaration, and was appointed then on to the Norfolkite House of Representatives as the first representative from Beulahdale. His legislative efforts were focused on making things better for his people and for trying to keep as many of them in the country after a schism broke out between those loyal to Garbania, and those loyal to the Republic. He was also the lone opponent (that is, he was the sole no vote) of the Titles of Nobility Amendment to the Constitution, fearing the effect it would have on his people, an act which won him support among traditionalist Ngombians, but also significant criticism from Norfolkites; one cartoonist even suspected him of pro-Garbanian sympathies. Despite this, he had a long, storied career and, upon his death, he was laid to rest in the National Ngombian Cemetery in the District of Beulahdale.
Rosalina Isabella de la Garza - Lady de la Garza was a Norfolkite socialite and philanthropist who pioneered the creation of the national network of little, free libraries across the country, filling the first libraries with books from her own personal library. She also funded the creation of new schools and libraries, and zealously supported the cause of free, universal, public education as the backbone of a new model society.
Fabrice Ardhuin Ganahl - Fabrice Ardhuin Ganahl was a signer of the Norfolkite Declaration of Independence; born into an ethnic Garbanian family, he made his living in 'The Boot,' which was where the city state would establish its network of rural cooperatives, generously compensating the farmers and ranchers before the great upheaval caused by the legendarily unrestrained urban sprawl of the original city. Ganahl's support was considered crucial to ensuring the rural vote for independence, as the initial opinion in 'The Boot' was firmly in support of loyalty to Garbania, with rather noticeable support for declaring independence itself as its own nation. After independence, Ganahl created the National Federation of Agricultural Co-operative Associations, the NFACA, which served to provide farmers with the means not only to ensure their own, individual livelihoods but to pool their surplus produce together for the sake of society; the NFACA's utilitarian bent was initially controversial, but Ganahl personally visited each and every suspicious farmer and secured their support. In later years, the NFACA was one of the significant backers of the politician Lawrence Arthur Biddenback, a staunch nativist who pushed for the outright ban of temporary foreign workers and outsourcing.
Gilbert Lorenzo Houngbo-Acquarone - Gilbert Lorenzo Houngbo-Acquarone was a signer of the Norfolkite Declaration of Independence; upon independence, he was put in charge of not only encouraging immigration, but stemming the tide of the Great Migration, in which thousands upon thousands of Garbanians and Ngombians fled the country due to their loyalty to the Garbanian government; his task was to intice them to change their minds and stay. Although he made some initial successes, the latter turned out to be a rather abject failure, albeit through no fault of his own; many emigres reported that he did his best for them, but that they could not deny their oaths. However, he was more successful when it came to immigration, with Rhossenians fleeing tyranny and serfdom, as well as those from minority communities in Rhossenia, coming in droves to replace them. He was rewarded with numerous honors for his long service to the Republic, as he was one of its most ardent supporters, and upon his death, he was buried in the Patriots' Cemetary along with his fellow signers save Assogba, who requested burial alongside his people.
Mona Lisa Al-Marri - Mona Lisa Al-Marri was once called one of the greatest avant-garde women artists of the early twentieth century and a pioneer in modern Norfolkite art. Drawn to painting from an early age, she started formal lessons at the age of five. She depicted everyday life of the people in her paintings, and traveled to numerous countries for inspiration and study purposes. She first gained formal recognition at seventeen for her painting of the portrait of Princess Eolanche of Garbania's daughter, Princess Gynnadette, for her birthday; as a result of her stellar work, she was considered an honored guest at Court, but later left Garbania; she never returned, and never spoke of her experiences there the rest of her life. Al-Marri would later be invited to join the team that would help shape the aesthetic improvements to the Norfolkite Capitol, the seat of the Norfolkite Congress, the legislative branch of the federal government.
Sophia Lauren Momodu - A former actress of Ngombian ancestry, she starred in films as a sexually emancipated persona and was one of the best known sex symbols of the time; known professionally as Zozo, her career has lasted almost as long as she herself has lived. However, despite portraying such a character, she was rather quiet and reserved off camera, and had only one relationship - her husband, Christian Fletcher V, who was a sailor in the Norfolkite Navy and the direct descendant of Christian Fletcher, the crew member on the HMS TBD who first spotted Nusquama Island, one of the component islands of the Islands of Refreshment (Îles de Rafraîchissement), called the most remote of Garbania's overseas possessions. Despite being in the Navy for life, often going on numerous tours, the marriage was considered storybook; in 1999, on the cusp of the new millennium, Christian and Sophia's letters to one another were compiled and published in book form.
William Makepeace Kittikachorn - 'Ol Billy, as he was called by his peers, was a Norfolkite novelist and illustrator. He is known for his satirical works, particularly his book, TBD, a panoramic portrait of Norfolkite society, as well as his short stories that poked fun at the popular figures of the day; legends has it that while the Emperor of Garbania detested them, his own family and friends greatly approved so much that he was kept awake by, and could not focus on his work as a result of, the laughter that constantly, consistently echoed throughout Court. Kittikachorn was laid to rest in a normal cemetary, but was moved to the Norfolk National Cathedral, sometimes simply called the National Cathedral, which is the country's equivalent, particularly due to all the figures buried and commemorated, of Westminster Abbey and is the seat of the head of the Old Catholic Church, the Archbishop of Norfolk.
Rita Mattiaccio - Rita Mattiaccio was a Norfolkite poet best known for her highly personal, confessional verse; her poetry details her long battle with bipolar disorder, suicidal tendencies, and intimate details from her private life, including relationships with her husband and children. Much has been made of the tangled threads of her writing, her life and her depression, especially when she jumped to her death from the top of the Norfolkite National Cathedral; the spot where she landed was turned into a memorial garden for those who have lost family and friends to suicide.
William Godwin Emefiele - W.G. Emefiele was one of Free Norfolk City's staunch promoters of free, universal healthcare, writing Medical Justice, a pamphlet which proposed the creation of a single-payer, universal health care program, which would provide full, equal access to health care for all citizens. He considered the creation of such a program, providing coverage for the whole populace, to be the cornerstone of any prosperous state; his musings on this matter remind one of the Bhutanese philosophy of gross national happiness. Emefiele is fondly remembered by many Norfolkites; a statue of him stands outside on the grounds of the Pitcairn Rehabilitation Hospital.

Ahmed Sadiq Issoufou de Shakahola de Makakoo - A.S. Issoufou was an Ibadi Muslim ennobled by the Emperor Lanrothric; he was given land and title in Ngombia for his assistance in "curbing disobedience," and he made his mark by organizing expeditions into the interior. Although he served a non-Muslim regime, he nevertheless did so quietly and efficiently; he lived a pious life, and was laid to rest accordingly upon his death. He was later sent to Free Norfolk City, on the eve of its independence, wherein he trained the last batch of the Colonial Militia; the Imperial Court recalled him soon after; though loyal, he privately expressed dismay at the expulsion of the Norfolkites. Despite his rise through the ranks, Islam remains a fringe religion at best, though one notes the Arabic writing on his tomb. He was also famous for befriending the socialite and salonnière Delores Sonrohon; in her salon, he routinely recited the Quran (he was a hafiz, and said to have had a rather rugged, but still lovely, voice) and personally funded translations of the same.

Bruce Corbin Hackett - He was the founder and namesake of Hackett's Weekly, A Journal of Civilization, a Norfolkite political magazine published from 1867 onward; it featured foreign and domestic news, fiction, essays on many subjects, and humor, alongside illustrations. A mint condition copy of the issue that announced Norfolkite independence was donated to the Museum of National History for its exhibit on the Great Anarchy; Hackett himself was dismayed by the Imperial decision, and threw his considerable influence behind the Republic as a result.

Hans Peter Zwennes - H.P. Zwennes was a Moravian missionary who established the Workingmen's Chapel in the District of Jeannesport. He was called 'Ol Hank by the sailors and prostitutes who frequented the massive harbor complex, always respected for his kindness and charity. He emphasized personal diligence, enterprise and frugality and regularly gave advice and aid to any who needed either, and upon his death, he was mourned by many. His chapel still exists today, and offers numerous social programs to the poor and needy.

Nasir Roland de Mouquet al-Sa'ad, Gouverneur des Île de la Sérénité - Coined the motto "L'audace, l'audace, toujours l'audace!" (Audacity, audacity, always audacity!) which is the official motto of Île de la Sérénité, also known as Ilha de Serenidade and Coconut Island due to the popularity of coconut products such as coconut-filled candy bars and canned coconut water.
Dianna Dymond - An actress in "certain movies," Dianna Dymond was born into the prestigious Vancouver family, who had founded Vancouvia, one of the provinces of Norfolk-in-Esvanovia and home to the famous Quikcard Centre, one of the best known arenas in Norfolkite ice hockey. Her decision to get into those movies was, while popular among a specific segment of the population, horrified and scandalized her family. Her real name was Olivia Rosemary Vancouver.

Jaroslav Zdeněk Suchánek, Comte de Hanatului de Marele: Mssr. Suchánek, the Comte de Hanatului de Marele was one of the very few "orthodox" (that is, Nicene) Christians in the aristocracy. He was an Eastern Lutheran, and was a close associate of T.I. Askiates; the two pooled their resources together to fund the nascent independence movement. Despite the establishment of the Crystal Castle Republic, Suchánek continued to help the Norfolkites afterward, but retired to his estate in Garbania upon the passing of the Titles of Nobility Amendment, whereat he penned his memoirs and donated his remaining wealth (that is, what was left over from the inheritance he would bestow upon his children) to the building of a Eastern Lutheran chapel, La Chapelle Comtale, which stll stands today.

Natasha Bakai - A Eurasian actress, Natasha was best known for hitting her big break in a performance of the theatrical comedy, "Liliya. From Rhossenia with Love. How Much Though?" She was also in a performance of the play, "Quis Decipio Ipsos Deceptors?" She broke into movies with a starring role in the late nineties dark teen comedy movie, "Gobstopper," which, while being a critical and financial failure, gained a cult following through home video release and subsequent television airings. She was born in the Ngombian province of Nasarbago, as her parents were researchers studying the interior tribes.

Jack Thaddeus Corrigan: J.T. Corrigan was best known for his controversial probe into the finances of five televangelism ministries that promoted prosperity theology on Norfolkite airwaves, leading to a spirited debate over whether or not it should be banned. Ultimately, the Supreme Court voted to allow televangelistic programming on Norfolkite airwaves, believing that ultimately, an informed, rational populace with true common sense will always be the best approach.

Kenneth Bunjimongoe Bornking - Ngombia's answer to real life, obscure figures like Simon Kimbangu, André Matsoua, Samuel Oshoffa and Joseph Ayo Babalola, K.B. Bornking was the founder of the Église de la Bienheureuse Espérance (Church of the Blessed Hope), that combined Christian religious beliefs with traditional Ngombi symbolism. Bornking received considerable media attention when he declared that it was revealed to him that polygamists could be baptised into the church; in this sense, the church is more willing to accept some cultural practices, but this is balanced by a strict sense of holiness. The church also recognises salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, but claims that the Son of God has been incarnated in multiple contexts, rejecting the orthodox doctrine of Christ taking a human body and soul for eternity. None of these incarnations are considered exclusive; they only serve to reveal Christ to people of different contexts, and all who are saved through any of these incarnations of Christ will worship God together in heaven. While Christianity is a fringe religion in Ngombia, census statistics indicate that Bornking's church commands the adherence of many Christians.

Steve Erwin Carradine: Founder of the Marvins, a Norfolkite rock band that proved to be widely influential across a variety of genres and acts.
Ernest Earl Lowenstein: Ernest, a Norfolkite musician, performance artist and activist, founded the comedy rock band, BeefPuke, in 1984, as an attempt to create the world’s worst band (their name was chosen accordingly). Early on, the band earned a reputation for throwing rowdy shows, destroying venues, and generally soiling audiences with milk, which was a reference to his childhood as the son of a dairy farmer. He was also one of the first celebrities to get involved with the Norfolkite equivalent of the "Got Milk?" ad campaign. He sparked controversy when he famously quipped, "It is just way easier now to become popular, because the bar is so fucking low. I see non-musicians heralded as musical geniuses. Much harder to get popular back in the day," and once flouted the ban on political parties by hosting an all ages, actual party that just happened to be political.

Aimée Lee - A common milk maid from a Norfolkite farm, she was the dearly beloved of the Ngombian chief, Wàto Turùpo Ùmari. Their relationship was the stuff of comedy, particularly in these lines from an old play: "Sir, thou hast depleted the stocks of milk by drinking one gallon per day. Where perchance do you plan to get more?" Her descendants are numerous throughout Ngombia and beyond.

Marge Brazier - Marge Brazier was the inventor of a controversial brassiere, the Hooter Holster, which marketed itself as the 'modern' solution for violence against women. She also supported the right to bear arms, believing that gun rights were women's rights and that under no circumstances should disarming female citizens be tolerated, for guns were the great equalizer.

Titania Duff - Slender and curvaceous, Titania is a lovely young lady who is never seen without a smile on her face. She is quite social, perhaps too social.

A constant (and very welcome) presence in the GA debate halls, the Thessadorian Ambassador (originally a gag from a silly forum poll) is admired internationally for her various "talents" and prized "assets," often complemented by a tight flattering T-shirt. She has lovely eyes too; if you wanna look up a little... Hey! *snaps fingers* Are you even paying attention?!

She is a beautiful, buxom woman who captures the eyes of most males who look upon her, and very kind towards people, perhaps too kind. She's basically the Republic's equivalent to Paris Hilton; a total airhead, sure, but her heart's pure gold.

George Nord: Reputedly the son of George IV, King of England, and Olga Zherebtsova, a Russian noblewoman—although one source notes Olga's alleged affair with Sir Charles Whitworth and the possibility that he was the father of George—George Nord was, like Armand Gagné, a young man trying to make a name for himself, and he did so, like Armand, in colonial Anmhonm, by then beginning the last phases of the metropolitanization of the country.

Geraulmas Ogesouche: After the expulsion of the Jesuits from the various European empires, some Jesuits ended up washing up on the shores of Anmhonm; Geraulmas, who was in charge of keeping tabs on who was coming into the colony, permitted them to settle within the colony, thus establishing Roman Catholicism, as we know it, in Anmhonm, much to the chagrin of the Old Catholics, who called them heretics. The Jesuits were initially reluctant to respond in kind, but upon various attacks (albeit literary) upon their characters, let alone their doctrines, they did so. The Norfolkite historian M.A. (Marie Annette) Stillman wrote that Geraulmas took them in because he believed, as foreigners, they might have important knowledge, both political and technological, to divulge to the government.

Dagoberé Zurithalissaran - A prince du sang (prince of the blood), Dagoberé was the Commandant de L'Armée Impériale Garbanienne à Anmhonm (Commander of the Imperial Garbanian Army in Anmhonm), which meant that he commanded the Imperial Garbanian Army units stationed in colonial Anmhonm; a hard working and consummate professional, he is best known for his marriage to Charlotte Stuart, the illegitimate daughter of the Jacobite pretender Prince Charles Edward Stuart; forbidden by him to marry, Charlotte eloped with Dagoberé, who handsomely provided for her and her mother. He had been sent to Europe as part of a diplomatic mission at the behest of his father, the Emperor Esmonderic, who reasoned that as Dagoberé was one of his many sons, he could afford permitting the otherwise unsanctioned marriage. Under Garbanian law, the Emperor (or Empress) may theoretically choose his (or her) heir from any of his children (including adopted children), but the standard practice of the oldest child inheriting tends to be the norm. Of course, some doubted their marriage would last, but it was storybook; Dagoberé and Charlotte had five children, and their descendants are numerous.

Mertuinhrasil Zurithalissaran - A prince du sang (prince of the blood), Mertuinhrasil was the firstborn son of Emperor Esmonderic, best known for having saved the life of Marie Thérèse of France, or so it was believed; during the During the French Revolution, Ernestine Lambriquet, the adopted/foster daughter of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, was said to have had such a physical resemblance to Marie Thérèse that it was rumored the king was her father. In fact, the resemblance was so strong that a rebel mistook Ernestine for Marie Thérèse and threw the corpse of a member of the Swiss Guard in front of her feet, but a shop-keeper defended her, also believing she was Marie Thérèse; it was this shop-keeper who smuggled her to safety, not realizing that the "princess" was actually a pauper. Mertuinhrasil, who had been in France on a diplomatic mission, came across the "princess," and had her brought aboard his ship. Jeanne Louise Victoire (also called "Zoe") and her two elder sisters, as well as Jean Amilcar, were aboard the same ship also; displaying a talent for drawing, Jean Amilcar was able to draw the famous depiction of the "flight from La Rochelle," reputedly with the Garbanian prince smuggling the children in cargo boxes supposedly full of faïence, which combined with the insistence on diplomatic immunity, prevented the revolutionaries from searching the ship, which immediately set sail for his native Garbania, whereupon she was believed to be Marie-Thérèse. Deciding that the best thing to do was to play along, "Princess Marie-Thérèse of France" married Mertuinhrasil, whose own son and heir, Merathorchimac, added the title, King of France, to his already long list of titles. Ernestine took the truth to the grave, and to this day, many Garbanians are still taught that a French princess once lived among them. Mertuinhrasil wrote an account of the French Revolution, which reputedly inspired the future Emperor Weyerlbert. Both Mertuinhrasil and his father provided generously for the others; Jean Amilcar was brought into the Imperial Court as the court artist, while 'Zoe' and her two older sisters married the sons of nobles. OOCly, the plotline of Ernestine is based on an alternate take on the theory that Marie-Thérèse of France swapped identities with her adoptive sister when she was released from the Temple.

Armand Gagné: Born François-Michel Gagné, Armand Gagné was an adopted (or foster) son of King Louis XVI and his wife, Marie Antoinette. Unlike his step-siblings, who all went to Garbania, Armand feared both the fury of the people and the fear of being thought a favourite of the Queen’s, according to Henriette Campan. He considered joining the revolutionary army, but feeling that they would reject him, or even have him shot as a spy, he opted for a life at sea. He ended up sailing for many days until he ended up in Anmhonm, where he decided to lay low. However, he would never again see his native France, and having eventually made his peace with this, he settled down; he married, had kids, and lived a long, modest life. He lived to see Norfolkite independence, and passed away as a centenarian, dying at the age of 105.

Vanja Thetford


Vanja Thetford is an agent of the Monmouth Bay Trading Company, best known as the Company's representative in Île de Femme; unlike most Norfolkites, she seems quite fine with the island's strict matriarchy, which endears her to the people there; it is noted in several Company reports, however, that the islanders are loyal to her personally rather than the Company, which is increasingly being seen as archaic and out of touch. As the Company's representative, her mission is to ensure that the people's concerns are attended to, as well as to represent the Company at cultural events. Also, Vanja has been noted for her amazing equestrian skills.

Soren Granholm: He was a Norfolkite essayist, lecturer, historian, and biographer who lived and worked his entire life in Norfolk-in-Esvanovia, best known for inspiring waves of writers and other creatives, culminating in Timon Kittredge, who coined the term Esvamania the following century. A leading writer of his time, he exerted a profound influence on nineteenth century art, literature, and philosophy. He was seen as a champion of individualism and critical thinking, as well as a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society and conformity; this was especially true among those who felt that Norfolk-in-Esvanovia had to stand on her own two feet, and achieve "sociocultural equality" with Free Norfolk City.

Vilbert Gignac - Born into an ethnic Garbanian family, President Vilbert Gignac is generally ranked by historians as a rather poor president; in fact, he has also been described as one of the least memorable presidents, largely due to his significant inability to deal with pressing issues such as the events of the Summer of '92. He meant well, the common consensus is, for a president who did nothing well.

Qualjus Magalgus: Qualjus Magalgus was an Anmhonmite (indigenous to what is now Free Norfolk City) lord who rose to prominence during the reign of King Ikhethar, becoming the lord of Nxakanxaka Domain; the domains served as a system of de facto administrative divisions of Anmhonm alongside the de jure provinces until they were abolished by the Garbanian colonialists, who attempted to assimilate the indigenous nobility into their own. He was best known for his attempts to initiate reforms, most notably through the domain schools, and when his efforts began to falter due to the stiff resistance from the royal court, he shifted his efforts towards trying to secure good relations with the Garbanians, who were becoming a significant influence on Anmhonmite politics and society at large. While he was a devout follower of the indigenous religion, he nevertheless permitted the practice of foreign religions in his domain, and relied on missionaries to bring word of foreign technological advancements for study and implementation; for example, his personal library contains quite a few Buddhist works, including texts dealing with meditation, abhidharma, and basic Buddhist doctrines. Legend has it that his faithful canine companion outlived him, but spent his days and nights keeping vigil at his tomb; he was laid to rest beside him upon his own death.
Okhasvin Dhebpagan: Okhasvin Dhebpagan was the Lord of Kabanana Domain, but he faced much opposition there since he spent most of his life in the capital (a compulsory requirement at the time due to a decree from King Chuksar) and as such he was considered a stranger in his own domain. He ascended to the position during the array of economic policies introduced in the kingdom's waning years, called the Astyoma Reforms; these reforms were efforts to resolve perceived problems in military, economic, agricultural, financial and religious systems. He greatly encouraged learning amongst his retainers, and sent them to the best schools to absorb the foreign knowledge and technical expertise which was entering the country at the time; however, his interest in Garbanian Studies, as said knowledge and expertise came to be known as, as well as scientific and industrial projects, promptly led to the deterioration of the domain's financial position; Ghegan Ghopmecan, his father Gaganapako's chief advisor, did not see eye to eye with him on this, but gradually developed a begrudging respect for his new liege.

Ukramak Raksedor: Ukramak Raksedor was the chief minister and top advisor to King Edhethor, as well as the chief rival of Gheneya Gheb'mavran; while she led the traditionalists, he was among the reformists, and as such, was accused of pandering to foreigners, a charge he rejected routinely. He favored diplomacy with Garbania, and went as far as to set sail to that country with Captain Rahard Taihouse, in the hopes of arranging a pact of friendship. This did not pan out as he had hoped, and a series of unfortunate events took place seemingly coincidentally thereafter, leading to an all out war. Raksedor was taken prisoner by the Garbanians, but they were under strict orders to treat him more along the lines of an honored guest than a prisoner of war; it was believed that the Garbanians wanted to form a puppet government around him, but they ultimately chose to annex Anmhonm outright, giving him instead land and the title of Prince of Elohssa. Despite his feelings of incredible shame and disappointment, he proved to be loyal to the new regime, and was buried accordingly with honors upon his death. Indigenous citizens consider him to be a folk hero, and his birthday is an unofficial holiday in the country, as well as the anniversary of his death.

Gheneya Gheb'mavran, The Last Queen


Gheneya Gheb'mavran was Anmhonm's last queen consort; she favored a policy of isolationism and self-sufficiency, reducing economic and politicial ties with foreigners, chiefly Garbania, and taking vigorous measures to eradicate the small but growing Manichaean community initiated under her husband's predecessor, King Obrothan. While she did not have much in the way of powers, the so called queen's men were members of her husband King Edhethor. She routinely meddled in political affairs, and despite her strict Garbanophobia, she was respected as a formidable foe by the Garbanians, including Prime Minister Sylastyr Menelamont, under whose administration the two countries had a brief, but devastating, war. She attempted to flee during the conflict, but she was apprehended by the Imperial Army officer, Astuinhrasil Nestriane, whose unit brought her back to the occupied capital; there, she witnessed the annexation of Anmhonm, with its first colonial governor Hathnhul Panotor overseeing the marriage of Crown Prince Theodyn to Princess Okhekira, uniting House Zurithalissaran of Garbania with House Sukulutu of Anmhonm, though "errant branches" of the latter persisted thereafter, such as that of House Dhab'rabar, the family of the Earls of Angarasari.

Jaromir Mulanax, Ambassador of the Crystal Castle Republic to the Imperial Court of Garbania.


Jaromir Mulanax - Born into the ethnic Garbanian minority, Jaromir Mulanax was the country's first Ambassador of the Crystal Castle Republic to the Imperial Court of Garbania. He famously wrote his thoughts and feelings on the appointment in the form of a news article while sailing to the latter on the HMS Charlotte Corday. He was initially reluctant to accept the position, given that his sympathies were with the unionists, but he carried out his duties to the utmost, and was well recieved by the Garbanians, despite their routine xenophobia towards even members of their own ethnicity who just so happen to have lived their entire lives overseas; indeed, when the population transfers began, Mulanax advocated as best he could for the Garbanians who, having lived their whole lives in Free Norfolk City, now had to return to the land of their ancestors, a land they themselves had no experience with. Mulanax married Dhanya Khem'sachar, an indigenous Anmhonmite woman, and had five children with her; three sons, two daughters. One of his sons, Imeddurvey, worked for the Monmouth Bay Trading Company, and participated in the events leading to the handover of the colony to the Crystal Castle Republic. Another son, Eduaeus, went to Ngombia, while the third, Phanistyr would be instrumental in shaping what would become the country's national pastime, baseball. His older daughter, Evelcine, became a prominent salonnière, while the younger, Eriayl, took up residence with a chieftess in Île de Femme, which provoked a scandal leading to a constitutional crisis, culminating in the Crystal Castle Republic passing its own equivalent of the Titles of Nobility Amendment as well as inspiring future LGBT activists who campaigned in support of gay marriage; though the relationship was not officially defined as such, Eriayl was said to have treated said chieftess the same way another woman would treat her husband.

Giraaldald Menehart, the discoverer of Nusquama Island.


Giraaldald Menehart - After Free Norfolk City recieved independence, the Imperial Garbanian Army and Navy units stationed there largely left the country, save those deemed "native," that is, having been formed in the colony itself rather than imported from abroad; as well, individual officers of both were offered the chance to choose whom they'd like to serve; Giraaldald Menehart was one of the captains in the Navy who opted to serve the newly minted republic. His past experiences in the Imperial Garbanian Navy, fighting in Caprona and elsewhere, were what he told the first batch of Norfolkite recruits all about; however, it was his experiences after independence that have earned him mention here. You see, he was the first to "discover" Nusquama Island.

Liselotte Cullimore


Liselotte Cullimore - Liselotte Cullimore is the daughter of Tedmund Cullimore, Free Norfolk City's Ambassador to the Imperial Court in Garbania—she is an intellectual girl bound for a prestigious university, but she feels tremendous pressure from her parents to excel, largely because her parents want to impress their Garbanian hosts, as Garbanians tend to look down upon Norfolkites, though not universally. Heavily involved in school activities, Liselotte sees herself as a future leader of Norfolkite society. Spending most of her life in Garbania inspires her to be more aware of Norfolkite issues, but she is simultaneously bitter about having to always play the part and having to always be calm, reasonable, and carefully spoken, especially when confronted by prejudiced Garbanians.

Justyne Haycraft


Justyne Haycraft - Born and raised in Free Norfolk City, Justyne Haycraft is one of the leading Greens of Norfolkite politics. She is seen as one of the emerging New Generation of Norfolkite politics, having come into her own after the impeachment and throwing out of office of Montgomery Jackson-Triggs, the first Norfolkite president to experience that. She has supported Green politics all her life, and whilst still at school she found her first job, working at a local fish-and-chip shop, where she impressed her boss with her questions about sustainable supply. Although political parties are banned in Free Norfolk City, with all politicians running as independents, there have been informal alliances between politicians, and Haycraft has fallen in with one that champions progressive causes. She has yet to run for the presidency, but has recieved word that quite a few would gladly support her.

Who's Who in the Garbanosphere: Norfolkites IV

Postby Free Norfolk City » Thu Feb 22, 2024 11:43 am

Hideyo Miki and Taeke Reijenka
Vilma Gutridge/Vassili Marchaiev
Ren and Anne Allyson
Helen Brindley: A popular Norfolkite children's author who wrote the still-popular Jessie Springsteen novels. Despite the old timey language, the books still resonate with modern audiences. Like the blue plaques of real life Britain, a green plaque was installed on the house where she lived and wrote her novels in the District of Emmerdale.
Róisín Kate Laurine Isabelle Richter: Róisín Richter is the Norfolkite new wave sensation; our version of Debbie Harry. She fronted the band, Goldilocks, and is still revered by her fans and critics to this day.
Justine Wohlgemut
Elizabeth Schroeder
Annie Alfaro: Norfolkite music's answer to Debbie Gibson and Tiffany. Still has a faithful following. Writes all her own songs, and does all of her own producing too. Was basically the prototypical girl next door type.
Natalia Rhoda Yodanyanova
Nazira Grogunova
Whizaka Qampte: Born among the Qubburo people, Whizaka Qampte was a Baháʼí pioneer best known for his attempt to introduce the Baháʼí Faith (the majority religion of the Qubburo) to the Norfolkites; while his people had largely converted, the Norfolkites largely declined to do so, although he did acquire the property upon which was built the Baháʼí House, the city state's first Baháʼí centre.
Frauk Shiokras
Tessa Van Der Maat
Maria Loudres Martina Serrano Casarrubios
Fayth Fuchs
Tomas Esposito
Ariel Benaiah Peninnah Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorff: Born into the prominent Wolfe­schlegel­stein­hausen­berger­dorff family, Ariel is a Norfolkite
Taumduad Jemaufort, Duc de Sarrowset: A religious and social reformer often influenced by strong and vehement feelings, and easily moved both by sorrow and joy, Jemaufort was a natural orator, and though his dress was simple his personal appearance gave an impression of distinction and force. He was best known for his support of foreign ideas, particularly Unitarian Christianity; he allowed Unitarian émigrés to take shelter in his lands, and most notably allowed them to preach therein; as a result, there was, translated into his native Garbanian, an edition of the the Book of Common Prayer produced and revised for use by Unitarians. However, this earned him numerous opponents; though he also recieved supporters as well. The reason he is listed among the Norfolkites was that, while not openly persecuted by the government, he felt increasingly wary of his safety, and thus fled to colonial Anmhonm to continue his research. Many Unitarians followed suit, with Norfolkite and Anmhonmite translations of the BCP being published as a result.
Lyweuel Rolslamont
Uurvannuus Lauloriane
Igvas Dremmeze
Vemdoch Voccozu - the fifth President of Free Norfolk City; born into an ethnic Garbanian family that stayed upon independence, Voccozu curtailed what was seen as excessive "Norfolkization" and encouraged economic and political changes that heightened the country's prosperity and international profile; he has been described as a talented leader with diplomatic skills; his leadership was instrumental in maintaining the Republic's independence and sovereignty. His diplomatic skills helped him to deal effectively with regional powers, and to maneuver in the complex field of international law and relations.
Eiana Annun: A Bahá’í pioneer from an ethnic Garbanian family, she was best known for her role in helping to establish Bahá’í communities in Garbania. She was one of the first converts to the religion, and worked alongside Whizaka Qampte to help the poor and needy before she left for Garbania.
Sara Leigh Schneebly: While she got her start writing for the Hebdomadal Gabfest, a popular Norfolkite magazine, she was called the "Mother of Children's Television" for her role as Miss Dressup, becoming an iconic presence in Norfolkite media; on her show, which aired every weekday morning, Miss Dressup would lead children through a series of songs, stories, arts, crafts and imagination games, with the help of her puppet friends - a child named Rory and a cat named Ulysses - who lived with her and often played in the tree-house in her backyard. Due to the long run of the series, several generations of Norfolkite children, both in the Crystal Castle Republic (as well as NIE) and the other Garbanosphere nations, grew up watching Miss Dressup and her adventures; Sara and the character of Miss Dressup have become strong Norfolkite icons and a part of Norfolkite pop culture. However, the show was, for one episode, renamed Mrs. Dressup after her marriage. After the show's final episode, Sara spent time touring college campuses giving talks about her time on the show aimed at students who grew up with her series. She died in her sleep, and many throughout the Garbanosphere mourned; these days, she has become an internet meme due to the rise of YouTube Poop-esque creations using footage of her show.

Edward Jude Vienneau: E.J. Vienneau is considered the "father" of the current version of the Constitution of Free Norfolk City; in terms of political personality, he was intense and immovable and had a tendency to rhetorical extremism.
MaryLynn Mcllhone
Estelle Eprat: A popular actress whose raspy voice and preference for "rough and tough" roles endeared her to the working-class audience. Her breakout role was in 1952's "Big West," in which she played the role of a hardened housewife in rural Garbania-in-Esvanovia.

Soraya and Saraya Lescroart




The Etchells family were the original settlers of the Jubilee Islands (sometimes called the Jubilees) in Esvanovia, named in honor of the golden jubilee of Emperor Theroranin of Garbania. From 1723 to 1923, the family essentially ruled the previously uninhabited islands as a private fiefdom, initially as terra nullius and then later under Garbanian (1732–1891) and Norfolkite (1891–1923) sovereignty; the family was forced, under threat of expropriation, to sell the title to the islands, with the exception of the family's residence, to the Monmouth Bay Trading Company at the behest of the federal government in Redwall.

Alexander Joseph David Etchells: Alexander Etchells was the first member of the Etchells family to land in the Jubilee Islands, and according to an article in a Norfolkite newspaper, "ran his little colony on model lines and succeeded beyond expectation," having populated it with former serfs from Rhossenia attracted by the idea of living in a tropical paradise, free from tyranny. In fact, his son, Jean-Alexandre, married one, a pretty young woman named Alisa; Jean Alexandre was, by all accounts, his successor to the family's authority over the islands; the Rhossenians reported that both Alexander and his son were kind, generous rulers, and provided for "our every need and want," without question.

Jean-Alexandre Etchells: After his father's death, Jean-Alexandre assumed control over the Jubilee Islands; not much changed until the arrival of an Imperial Garbanian Navy ship under Captain Symon Petyr Nescraine, who took possession of the islands in the name of the Garbanian government, appointing Jean-Alexandre as the prefect of the islands and leaving after a five month vacation. The connection to Garbania changed nothing in daily life on the islands, and it was not until seventeen years later that another Garbanian ship arrived for a complete survey of the islands. He married Alisa Chladny, a Rhossenian peasant woman, and had five children with her. After his death, he was succeeded by his son, Ptolemy.

Ptolemy Etchells: It was during his tenure that the first annual inspection of the islands by the Garbanian government took place; as well, Emperor Geparbert granted the islands in perpetuity to the Etchells family. Representatives from Charlottechurch, capital of Garbania-in-Esvanovia, made regular visits to the islands, especially after the implementation of a policy that mandated penal transportation to the islands from elsewhere in the realm. One report stated that Ptolemy "makes his own laws and interprets them, polices his little domain, provides his own coinage, controls the entire trade and acts as 'the universal provider' to satisfy the wants of the community," and that the Rhossenians on the island continued to maintain their allegiance to the Etchells. He was the first to marry a non-Rhossenian woman, instead choosing to wed Shirley Whitbeck, but was the last head of the islands under Garbanian rule, as jurisdiction over the islands was transferred to the Norfolkites in 1891; his son, Louis-Julien, assumed control after his death.

Louis-Julien Etchells: Louis-Julien, despite the seemingly monarchial, even outright feudal, undertones of island society, nevertheless swore loyalty to the Crystal Castle Republic upon the handover in 1891, and governed the islands accordingly. He revamped the capital, Tiestru, and embarked on a campaign to modernize the islands, particularly when it came to tourism. He entered into several business dealings with the Monmouth Bay Trading Company, however, which would ironically prove to be his family's downfall.

Napoléon-Alexandre Etchells: In 1923, Napoléon-Alexandre Etchells was compelled by President Erwin McDevitt, to sell the Jubilee Islands to the Monmouth Bay Trading Company, after McDevitt promised to take a firm stand against opportunism and corruption; he particularly took issue with the Etchells family, claiming they were some of the last vestiges of Garbanian colonialism to stamp out. Napoléon-Alexandre had no choice but to feebly accept, and retired to his family's residence in Tiestru once the deal was completed.

John Thomas Nakatsui: J.T. Nakatsui was the Norfolkite doctor who reported on the first cases of Viral Overactive Dysfunction of the Auto-Immune System (or VODAIS) in the country. He coined the initial name, Communicable Immune Deficiency (CID), in his first few reports. Julian Szklarz, a Norfolkite journalist who wrote The Black Parade, a tell-all book about these cases, noted that Nakatsui was appointed head of the Strange Disease Countermeasures Committee, or SDCC, which was tasked with handling the emerging crisis. His personal philosophy closely resembled Schweitzer's personal philosophy of Reverence for Life (Ehrfurcht vor dem Leben) and, as such, he tirelessly advocated for VODAIS patients and their loved ones, even helping to start the country's first VODAIS hospice. He was also tapped to help formulate a national health strategy, established to promote updated national policies for health promotion and disease prevention, which included full VODAIS antiretroviral medication coverage with no cost, regardless of age or income.

Marc-Louis Van Boxel-Woolf: He could be called the Dr. Bronner of the video game industry, in that he used product labels to promote his moral and religious ideas, including a belief in the goodness and unity of humanity. Indeed, when he came out with his console, a Norfolkite equivalent to Mattel's infamous Hyperscan, everything came with text-heavy labels. He was a constant fixture at gaming conventions, and routinely took questions from fans and critics alike; he was also cited for his insistence on treating employees and customers alike like they were family, and regularly donated surplus consoles free of charge to poor families, including children living in women's shelters. He also personally oversaw the development of each game, making sure the console had at least one of each genre, most notably a port of Big League Baseball, one of the country's biggest video game franchises, which was considered rather ambitious for the time given the console in question. Indeed, he chose Big League Baseball '05, the only game in the franchise to be ported to the console, to be the pack-in game. Despite all this, his console, the Verge (so named because he believed he was on the verge of instigating a revolution in gaming) was a commercial failure; despite this, it developed a cult following if only for Boxel-Woolf's enigmatic promotion of the console, especially on the infomercial circuit; he was something of a proto-meme for his bombastic speeches. He also boasted of his diet of Brazil nuts and buttermilk, claiming it would lead to a long, healthy and vibrant life. However, he would be terminally diagnosed with cancer; on his deathbed, he decided to make the Verge the world's first open source gaming console; he also ensured a free supply of development hardware that would help homebrewers out immensely. The Verge came out in 2005; as such, Big League Baseball '05 was the only game in the BLB series to be released on the console; as such, there's a community of fans of the port that has continously provided free roster updates. "Why?" said one member of the community. "Because we can. It's that simple."

Although not the only video game company in town, the Matei Corporation is considered the number one company in the country.

Erwin Eugen Blumenthal: E.E. Blumenthal was a Norfolkite nuclear physicist who is widely credited as the father of the Norfolkite nuclear programme; he also played an important role in the birth of the space programme. He was one of the chief proponents of what would become the no first use doctrine which asserts that nuclear weapons are solely for deterrence and that Free Norfolk City will pursue a policy of retaliation only.

Who's Who in the Garbanosphere: Norfolkites V

Postby Free Norfolk City » Fri Feb 23, 2024 3:38 pm

Claudette Cravens: One of Free Norfolk City's best known authors of lesbian literature, and one of the city state's most popular authors overall, Claudette Cravens began writing at an early age. She was from Carver City in Norfolk-in-Esvanovia, a once-quaint 'town' which is said to be a holiday resort plagued by crime. The fabled town of Carver City has a history of bad luck and misfortune, one local journalist noted, all the while giving the impression that it's a pleasant family getaway. Here, Claudette honed her skills by going out and about, writing down observations about the people she saw, the events that happened; a car crash here, a bar fight there. Her books were, at times, controversial, but were nevertheless popular.
Abdullah Mohammad Khalaf al-Bajraki: Called "Moadib" or teacher by his peers, he was an Ibāḍī Muslim imam who was the first imam of the Mosquée Mère d'Anmhonm (Mother Mosque of Anmhonm), which was the first mosque in the country's history. The Norfolkite historian Reynelm Warelwast noted that the mosque was constructed in 1532, twenty three years before the Garbanian conquest of Anmhonm. He was seen as a wise and venerable figure, and was a hafiz; that is, one who has memorized the whole Qu'ran. When the Garbanians annexed Anmhonm, he negotiated the final surrender of the remaining Anmhonmite loyalists and safe passage and security for civilians. He provided help for the first translations of the Quran in the Anmhonmite and Garbanian languages, but both were seen merely as "foreign curiosities," and consequently for many years, only he and his fellow Arabs constituted the Muslim community. Despite the inabiliy to attain converts, the Garbanians kept him on hand for his expertise on community relations, and upon his death, buried him with honors. The mosque he built is still in use today.
Priscilla Jean Wollenschlaeger: P.J. Wollenschlaeger was the lead vocalist, songwriter and "all around menace to decent society" of the metal band Lafcadio; the proverbial girl next door who lived in the District of Pleasantview, she was one of the first among a small number of women to front as a death metal vocalist, but did not set out to do so; initially, she aimed to make music comparable to that of Debbie Gibson and Tiffany, but the story goes that she walked into the wrong audition, but decided to perform anyway, impressing her would-be male bandmates enough to offer her the position. Despite initial reluctance, as well as her parents being concerned, she took the job, and has performed ever since. The members of Lafcadio have been acknowledged as some of the most proficient players on their respective instruments, with each winning numerous awards in magazine readers' polls over the years.

Christina Cholmondeley: “Like my sister Chrissie says: don’t be haters just ‘cuz you ain’t us,” natters Christina Cholmondeley, of popular reality show Crashing Out with the Cholmondeleys, as she flicks her hair. “Reality TV is, like... what’s the word? Not Alsatian... aspirational. We aspire kids to be better than they are. If they’re fat and stupid, we make them want to be pretty and clever, like us. By acting like us, they can hope to be like us. Then they’ll have their own brand of perfume, like Chrissie C’s Pong of Class, which is on sale now, babe. Rather than oppress us, you should show your fans how awesome you are by being on our show... like, lots. Norfolk-in-Esva needs our brand of style way more than political speeches.”

Marcus Antonius, Comte de Noremac

Radul Pearson: Radul Pearson is the Minister for Defense, responsible for overseeing the national defence of the city-state. His parents were Vernon Pearson, an officer of the Norfolkite Army and Monica Hickling, a pin-up girl. His philosophy is simple: "Whatever keeps our ships floating and our jets flying." He also supports maintaining the country's armed neutrality, and is a staunch defender of the policy of conscription, including the rule that women are not exempt whatsoever. "We are a city state in a volatile part of the world," he explained. "All of us must do our duty. Every last one of us."
Gennice Alcendor: Gennice "Genny" Alcendor is a Norfolkite politician, diplomat and former optometrist who has been serving as Minister for Foreign Affairs. She has held a variety of posts in the Norfolkite government, and is one of the city-state's most respected politicians. An optometrist by profession, she made a name for herself before she entered politics, with her practice recieving many positive reviews. She turned to politics after becoming disenchanted with "the way things are done," and wanting to help the less fortunate, who constituted quite a lot of her clientele. Gennice is often considered Lady Lorraine's right hand woman—in fact, the two were childhood friends—and is thus considered one of the more prominent figures in Norfolkite society. While Lorraine can arguably be considered to be high-strung and suffering from anger management problems, Gennice tends to be cool and collected, rarely given to anger. She values pragmatism over ideology, and a politician from Shimono once said of her, "The quality of her mind is impressive. In meetings with her, she has legal framing, approaches problems in a deeply systemic way, is unsentimental about the world, clear-eyed and very strategic...oh, sure, she can be hard-headed about what is best for Norfolk, but she is always upfront and clear." Her parents are Luiz Alcendor and Margarida Vazante.

Miguel Tomás Balacua: Miguel Tomás Balacua is a Norfolkite politician, rancher and spokesman who has been serving as the head of the Norfolk-Esvanovian Trading Company, and thus, as the first governor of Norfolk-in-Esva, which while considered a colony of Free Norfolk City de jure, is de facto under his personal control. He is the patriarch of the Balacua clan, one of the most famous families in the history of the city-state. He was initially an agitator for reform in Free Norfolk City, but had ran afoul of the government to the point that he was effectively exiled under the guise of being appointed to run the NETC. He is considered a down-to-earth figure in the colony, treating settler and indigenous alike with equal concern, being no respector of persons. He often governs from the hip, running the colony like he were the sheriff of an old, Western town in real life, American fiction. He is seen as somewhat quixotic by his detractors, but overall enjoys the support of the majority of the colonial population. He is recorded as having said, "I want to see government limited as much as possible, but I would not like to see it abolished. I think the average person, if left totally free, would act exactly like a warlord. I don't trust the people any more than I trust the government," which isn't surprising given how he handles law and order in the colony. He married Talula Gangursky, with whom he has five children, and lives with her in the capital, Charlottechurch. Their wedding was held at the city's famous Choirgirl Hotel.

Mikaela Esparza: A Norfolkite journalist, she was a pioneer in bringing up controversial issues such as abortion, incest, rape, VODAIS, the imprisonment of juveniles, and trading of weapons. Her book about VODAIS in particular, centered on the life of supermodel Justine Mirna Damary, who was one of the first famous women to ever succumb to the disease, won numerous accolades, and was even made into a movie.

K.K. McKenough: K.K. is the head of the Federal Security Police (FSP, or "SecPol" as it is more commonly known), the Norfolkite equivalent of the FBI. He is a quiet, reserved type about whom little is known; what is known is that he has shown himself capable and willing to pursue his own agenda. However, he tends to serve the interests of the Republic, and is well-known for his eccentric behavior and brazen charisma; even as a child, he was regarded as a gifted, and despite his eccentric personality, often charismatic individual even at a young age. Showing an aptitude far beyond his age, he was generally seen as eccentric or "weird" by his fellow students. He lives a rather secluded life outside of the public eye, and remains "happily" unmarried, despite his own rhetoric praising the benefits of marriage. He also refuses to hire a cook for himself, and refuses to eat in public.





Faarooq Asaad

Rylee Roseborough: Rylee, at twelve years old, was best known for making the first suggestion for what would become the VODAIS Memorial Quilt—she was also the youngest person that Mikaela Esparza interviewed for her book on VODAIS. Rylee would later become notable for her dedication to her community, being considered the "first young person to actually enjoy community service."

Montgomery Jackson-Triggs: Montgomery Jackson-Triggs was a former President of Norfolk, widely recognized as the first and so far only president to be impeached and thrown out of office. Called the Full Monty by supporters, he ran on a platform based on isolationism, populism and autarchy. He was the first president of the country with neither political or military experience, and was seen as a fringe candidate until he famously defeated TBD in the 20** election. His "loudmouth" rhetoric included a controversial speech in which he urged Norfolkite girls and women to give lonely men a chance, which was sharply condemned by activists, and was a watershed moment since it brought attention to the issue of incels and other, similar groups. His flippant response to the criticism is said to have sparked the impeachment. The current president, Lorraine Kindrakewich, took office afterward, beating her rival and former ally, M.T. Balacua. However, he has not faded away; rather, he has continued to be outspoken, insisting he was screwed and that he should still be the president. His marriage to notorious "paparazzi fodder" and "socially twisted" socialite TBD also won him no favors, and their separation was called "The Divorce Heard Round the World."

Sasha Bleu: Sasha Bleu is an adult film star whose infamy in Norfolkite society stems from the fact that she was controversially fired from her job as a school teacher due to her past work in adult film. The so called "Bleu Case" was marked with protests throughout the city state and its Esvanovian colony, with numerous figures coming out to support or condemn her. It also inspired Eliza Bleu, a hip hop starlet, when choosing her stage name; certainly, it didn't help matters that she openly believes sex work is real work, and that women can be empowered by it. This provoked feminists to criticize what they saw as a romanticization of poverty (as Sasha repeatedly stated she grew up poor) and internalized misogyny. Sasha, for her part, claimed that "jealous, bitter" women can't handle her success. Despite claiming not to be ashamed of her past, she has turned down countless offers to return to the porn industry, stating that "she's past that stage now." An avowed libertarian, she has teased a political campaign, but has yet to file the paperwork. Various porn stars have credited her with inspiring them to be more willing to negotiate for better conditions after she fought with the studio she worked for for ownership of her movies. It was a highly publicized conflict that drew widespread attention and media coverage, which ultimately resulted in her re-recording the sex tapes that initially made her famous. Her image was again tarnished when she agreed to do a collab with Dixie Davis, though she later admitted that "mistakes were made" and that "I'd never work with that bitch again" after word got out that the collab itself only barely managed to happen due to intense creative differences.

Dixie Davis: Dixie Davis is an N-Pop singer, songwriter and television personality whose popularity in Norfolkite culture is lauded by some, abhorred by others. While having spearheaded what some call a renaissance, others believe she represents peak idiocracy. She is the second most-followed woman (after President Lorraine Kindrakewich herself) and the fifth most-followed person on Bleeter, with over one hundred million followers. Her followers tend to be fanatically devoted, and will spare no expense to defend her online, especially in light of the "WOTD Scandal," in which she was voted Woman of the Decade over other women deemed more suitable for such a title. Many allege she weaponizes her fanbase to go after people she doesn't like. She has put out ten albums, along with a variety of other releases. She's earned notoriety for what some felt was her classless, graceless antics both on and off stage, including selling her virginity when she turned eighteen (and being condemned for her homophobic comments when she refused to accept a gay woman's bid), and her collab with notorious adult film star Sasha Bleu, which was quite ironic given her aformentioned homophobic comments as Sasha Bleu has worked with girls as well as guys. Despite many claiming she is a bad influence on young girls, others see her as a great example of female empowerment in a patriarchal world.

"'Lil Rich Bitch" Shania Barton: Shania Barton is a Norfolkite socialite from the prominent Barton family. While her big sister Megan is politically active, Shania could care less about politics and generally lives a life of luxury and hedonistic indifference to the world around her.

Born:

July 4th, 2006

Birthplace:

Sweet Valley, Free Norfolk City

Age:

17.


Megan Barton: Called "The Red Sheep," Megan Barton is a Norfolkite woman from the prominent Barton family, famous for having renounced her privileged background while still a teenager, and becoming an adherent of left wing causes. Called the red sheep of the family, she aligns with anarcho-syndicalism and libertarian socialism. If she existed in real life, she would most likely consider Rosa Luxemburg her role model. She famously condemned President Kindrakewich's decision to work with the Nifonese, and routinely speaks out about the need for "real, meaningful change" in Norfolkite society and politics. She has also spoken out against the MBTC, demanding that Free Norfolk City end any and all colonialist ventures, which provoked Montgomery Jackson-Triggs to claim she was seditious, if not outright treasonous. While her parents, despite disagreeing with her politically, attempt to keep her within their reach as her parents, her sister Shania routinely denies her existence, and refuses to have much to do with her. It doesn't help that Megan's remarks about Shania are less than favorable, to say the least.

Samantha El-Masri: With her dark brown eyes and dark black hair, along with a lithe, slender build, Samantha is a Norfolkite model and debutante.
Wild Bill Cramer: Wild Bill was best known as the first in a series of evangelical preachers who took to radio, and later television, as a Primitive Methodist clergyman. His fiery devotion to the Gospel earned him much fame, especially when he confessed before the nation that he fathered a child with a lowly tavern wench, claiming he had fallen short and that by being honest and forthright with the public, he would do the cause of Christ a far better service than any other. He would later note in his will that fifty percent of his estate should go toward the conversion of souls, while the other fifty percent went to the mother of his child.

Veronica Jade Ruschenberger: Popular young and pretty socialite whose exploits are chronicled regularly, particularly by those who ironically dismiss her as a bad influence on young people.
Tara Lynn Cardinal: A member of the prestigious Cardinal dynasty founded by Ser Louis Cardinal in the Garbanian city of Vezverde, once called 'Lezverde' for its significant importance in lesbian culture, including the high number of lesbian bars. Married Claudius Cardinale in a "lovely bout of irony."
Aneta Ramonita Bocian: The lead vocalist and chief songwriter of the shoegaze band, Goodnight Moon. Openly bisexual. Proudly Esvanovian. Supports the disestablishment of the Monmouth Bay Trading Company. Is considered a crossover star due to her considerable fandom throughout Garbania and her colonies. Her first album, Cette vie a été une épreuve with its smash hit single, Willow Witch, was a significant success.
Elmer Edris Garubar: E.E. Garubar is the current Director of NSIS, the Norfolkite Security Intelligence Service, which is the country's foreign intelligence service and security agency.




Elana Euresti: One of Norfolkite animation's foremost creators, best known for creating The Punisherette, an anime series about criminals' worst nightmare: a housewife with nothing more to lose after her husband and only child are killed. She is also known for her Tom of Finland-esque depictions of girls and women, which make her works stand out for sure amidst other domestic, and foreign, fare. She was part of the animation renaissance during the nineties and early noughties, and considered an influence on a wide spectrum of creatives, not just animators.
Pascal Guei: Admiral of the RNS Anne Askew; best known for sailing into Charlottechurch's main harbor upon the handover of what was to become Norfolk-in-Esvanovia during the summer of 1892. The RNS Anne Askew is today a museum ship, and a popular tourist trap, but at the time, it was one of the best ships in the nascent Norfolkite Navy. Guei, an avowed Republican, was also known for helping to start, and advocate for, the Norfolkite Navy being the 'favored service' of the overall armed forces, much to the chagrin of the Army.

Claudia Clement: "Everyone copies one another and then kvetches that they’re the original," quipped Claudia Clement, the first Norfolkite salonnière to adapt to the new medium called television; she was a Norfolkite critic, talk show host, and interviewer known for her filmed interviews; following in the footsteps of Barbara (Barbie) Saffern, who did likewise with radio, she entertained hundreds of guests from all walks of life, from the wealthiest bankers to randoms pulled off the street. In preparation for an interview, she said that she did the necessary research independently, and her interviewing style was praised by many. The interviews mainly focused on the celebrity's latest work, such as an actor's most recent film.

Dollie Shiraaz Maamarazaq (House of Maamarazaq), Comtesse de Khilapha: Founder of the Connexion de la comtesse de Khilapha, a small society of evangelical churches. She welcomed all who would make the proclamation of the Gospel their priority, and was the first major indigenous convert to Christianity, which is especially notable given that the House of Maamarazaq was known for its family tradition of upholding the old ways and for having its members live out their days as custodians and maidens of shrines and temples. Her movement had a profound impact on indigenous Anmhonmite society and culture, and it played a significant role in the indigenous revivals of later centuries, especially as all services were conducted in Anmhonmite, rather than Garbanian or what was becoming the Norfolkite language. The Comtesse de Khilapha was an avowed Methodist, and is seen as a significant early leader in the community. However, her connexion is considered separate from the Free Wesleyan Church of Norfolk, as well as the Church of Anmhonm, which was established in 1923 by indigenous Christians who did not like what they saw as Norfolkization.

Eleanor Jean & Lili Marleen Pribbenow: A pair of sisters who worked the opera circuit together, famous for their versatility and vocals. Both were unmarried and childless their entire lives, preferring each other's sisterly company after their parents passed away in a freak accident; neither felt they could risk leaving the other behind.

James Charles DuValle, Seigneur de Douce Vallée: J.C. DuValle was the most famous of the Seigneurs de Douce Vallée ("Sweet Valley") due to his enthusiastic support for unionism; that is, Free Norfolk City's remaining a part of the Garbanian colonial empire.


Kelly Barnett: N-Pop sensation and style icon. Has a whole lot of hit singles under her belt.
Philip Desmond Thorington: P.D. Thorington was President of Free Norfolk City from TBA-TBA. He was best known for leaning hard into libertarian principles: "People will be free to do as they damn well please," he told the media upon winning the election. "Nothing will be illegal so long it does not infringe on the rights of others. If a citizen wishes to open a tavern, set up gambling or make pornographic films, the government will not interfere." He also banned the circumcision of children, including the Jewish practice of brit milah, saying, "Bodily harm is against the fundamental rights of all children, and we can't understand when a so-called civilized country such as Free Norfolk City would allow its male babies to be so readily mutilated legally!"



Osman Jack and Keziah Likens: Osman Jack, and his wife Keziah, were the progenitors of the Likens clan, famous for their many members becoming prestigious members of proto and early Norfolkite society, and beyond. Just as it is said that within every ship's crew, there will be at least one Norfolkite, it is said that within every trading post or otherwise foreign enterprise, there'll be a member of this clan.

William Juilliad-Bekkener, Seigneur de Île Amélie: William Juilliad-Bekkener was born in Anmhonm into an ethnic Garbanian family. He took to sea as a common sailor on a merchant ship and then on a whaler, but he jumped ship in what was called Les Îles Resplendissantes, a group of various-sized islands. Historians note he was motivated by a settled hatred of external authority, a lust for personal freedom, and most of all, a desire to make a name for himself. Little did he know that he would do so by discovering a remote island, which he named after his daughter, much like how Jeremiah Heaton founded the Kingdom of North Sudan in real life—of course, Amelia Island soon fell under Garbanian jurisdiction, but Prince Socorananach, who sympathized with William, secured for him the (albeit honorary) title of governor, with his daughter, the island's namesake, being named (also honorarily) queen. The island is much like Redonda, but despite the imposing difficulties, William visited; climbing the top of the island is very arduous, but he nevertheless did so, planting a flag that his daughter designed. The island is the farthest away out of the entire chain, and was once called by Gabriel Bertrand Anih, the husband of the notable socialite Nathalie Anih, "the little island that the Gods forgot," because every other island was more or less habitable by humans, so the jaded observer might've concluded there was little reason to impede the poor fella's venture. After Free Norfolk City's independence, he asked one of his old friends, Gerhard Wurditsch, one of the signers of the Norfolkite Declaration of Independence, to "recognize the independence of his daughter's realm," but although his daughter had aged out of those "childish fantasies," she nevertheless appreciated the gesture. The island still bears the name today, and atop it, lies a Garbanian language memorial honoring the "late Queen, and her chief advisor."

Stella Douglas - She wrote the lyrics to and composed the music of the Norfolkite national anthem, L'Aube Nouvelle, which was adopted as such in 1932, though it was popularly sung since 1868. Stella, a humble housewife, crafted the song upon seeing her crestfallen husband, a veteran of the Caprona War, taking to drink, wanting to inspire him to get back to his former self. The song not only did just that, but soon became the talk of the block, and then, the entire country. The newly minted republican government chose her to be one of the inagural bearers of the Congressional Gold Medal.
Enzo Pareneux: He was the founder of the first Sociétés Républicaines Démocratiques (Democratic Republican Societies) that were formed in the early years of the CCR to promote republicanism and democracy and to fight aristocratic tendencies. The first society appeared at TBD House in the District of TBD on Gnadenhutten Street.


Lisa Ann Des Vœux: Hailing from the Garbanian province of Saucony, her father Yhon-Marq was the seigneur of a tomacco plantation in the Ngombian town of Kamooko, in the province of Grurland; he was later appointed Comte de Akumaku, and also introduced golf to the Ngombians, claiming, "it didn't take, but it was worth a try." In her early years, she lived in Ngombia, a country that has traditionally been divided between the relatively lush and populous interior and the sparsely populated coastal region; there was often little or no overall government in the interior, and the tribes often fought amongst each other, as well as raided the coastal peoples, who were seen as civilized, having largely assimilated into the Garbanian way of life.

Sosthene Jacques Ndaoulet, Comte de Ogtogo: As the governor of the island of Ogtogo, he was best known for his sympathy for the Totecans, whom he placated via several, generous overtures; he also further fortified the island, but the anticipated Aureumterran invasion never came. Nevertheless, he carried out his duties to the utmost. He is listed here because after his governorship concluded, he was sent to Anmhonm, then undergoing the first steps towards becoming Free Norfolk City, and oversaw the building of fortifications on the border with the terra incognita to its north, long considered the bane of all would-be explorers.
Lorene Walcott: Lorene Walcott wrote the Norfolkite equivalent to Little Women, called Little Tree, inspired by a Biblical verse, Psalm 1:3. Walcott's first novel, she initially didn't want to write it because, outside of her stories for the paper, she did not appreciate her own talents, but the book's immediate success surprised both her and her publisher. Pure, simple and truthful, opined one critic. Written with a naivety that is refreshingly believable, said another. The book has recieved numerous film adaptations, particularly one made in 1992 that helped bring an end to the chaos of the Summer of '92.

Bridgett Pelton: Bridgett was best known for instigating a riot over rumors the Old Catholic Church was adopting imported Protestant doctrines in 1662, a la Jenny Geddes. The riot led to a government inquiry into the Christian faith. The rumors ended up being unfounded, as the Archbishop of Norfolk, Siward Sleford, officially denounced said doctrines as heresy; he also told the Emperor Rurorananach that Christianity was compatible with the realm, citing Romans 13:1. However, Sleford's denounciations failed to sway the minds of dissenters, the first batch of whom established the Presbyterian Church of Norfolk.

Mauonan Seleele: A Garbanian immigrant to colonial Anmhonm, he was best known for his seminal work, the Summa Spiritualitas, also known simply as the Summa, in which he attempted to categorize and explain each minority religion in the realm. He was also known for his Manichaean commentaries on St. Augustine's Confessions. As Manichaeism is the majority religion of Garbanians (at one point, the country's state religion), these commentaries were responsible for many Manichaean citizens mistrusting their Christian neighbours, as Seleele made sure to note Christian persecution of Manichaeans numerous times in his works.

Stefano Francesco Vaccaro: Called the father of Norfolkite opera, his many works are still widely loved today. Vaccaro believed in applying the big tent philosophy to opera, wanting to appeal to as many people as was possible; indeed, people from all walks of life flooded the opera houses that won the honor of premiering his operas, including Vous, Les Riches, which was considered scandalous and ahead of its time for featuring a lesbian character. Some of his works had a political bent to them, highlighting the chronic neglect of Anmhonm, and later Free Norfolk City, by the Imperial Court. Despite him coining the word "Norfolkite," as it is commonly used today, he was deeply upset when Free Norfolk City declared independence, and turned down an invitation to participate in the inagural independence day festivities. In his last years, Vaccaro undertook a number of philanthropic ventures; when the Titles of Nobilty Amendment passed, Vaccaro, who retained the numerous honors bestowed upon him by the Garbanian government, was technically to be stripped of his citizenship, but the Norfolkite people were so horrified by the prospect, that many gathered outside the Norfolkite Capitol to protest. The nascent Republican government, not wanting to see violence unfold not that long after the Great Anarchy, made an exception in Vaccaro's case. He passed away shortly thereafter, with fans from all over the country and the rest of the Garbanian empire converging on the funeral site to remember him by. Today, Vaccaro is still considered a very important figure in the Norfolkite national mythos, despite his staunch monarchism.

Jean-François-Valère Varon: Jean-François-Valère Varon, the namesake of Varonism, was the architect of the Norfolkite welfare state; amidst accusations of being a communist, he rejected the label and called himself a communitarian; a communitarian, he explained, emphasizes that individuals often gain incredible value through their connection to, and interaction with, groups. Most Norfolkite policies the people take for granted stem from his presidency, such as universal healthcare (that covers even pets), state-funded funerals, free education including college and university and the end of Norfolkite as the official language. Varonism, however, is not an actual ideology, but was coined by a Norfolkite journalist covering the impressive attendance at rallies come election season. "When the President so much as sneezed," quipped another, "The whole nation says bless you." Despite his seemingly leftist ideas, he was an ardent nationalist, and his first order of business in the matter of foreign affairs was to push for Garbania to apologize and make amends for the Shaiburg Massacre, resulting in a significant plunge in diplomatic relations between the two; at one point, he even told his wife that he considered his presidency a failure simply because he was unable to get Garbania to do just that. He also was the first Norfolkite president to take a hard stance against the Monmouth Bay Trading Company, but due to the mandatory referendum law, a cornerstone of Norfolkite democracy, he was unable to take direct action without popular consent; the measure just barely failed, with the narrowest of victories for the pro-Company faction. Varon was one of a select few of Norfolkite presidents who died in office; he is said to have overworked himself to death, with a fatal heart attack taking place on national television during his last (due to strict term limits, a Norfolkite president can only govern for two, five year terms) State of the Republic address. His successor was Vice President Jadiel Ferreira De Oliveira, his chief acolyte, but only after a snap election confirmed the people's support. While most of Varon's more 'interesting, if not radical' ideas never saw the light of day, Jadiel ensured that the main ones would endure.
Yutaka Shirota: Known affectionately as Shirota-san, Yutaka Shirota was the creator of the popular series of turn-based strategy games, Armchair General; the first game in the series, critically acclaimed, had a controversial bonus campaign, an alternate history campaign in which the rumored military coup actually did happen, overthrowing Emperor Weyerlbert of Garbania, with the newly minted junta fighting Norfolkite rebels who refuse to lose their ancient freedoms. For Armchair General II, the bonus campaign was what would've happened if the Great Anarchy turned into all out civil war, with the Shaiburg Massacre turning into a Isandlwana-level disaster for the Garbanian forces under Girart Dieudonné. Armchair General III's bonus campaign was a civil war in Norfolk-in-Esvanovia, in a timeline where Free Norfolk City called Garbania's bluff, and refused to take it over, leading to Garbania abandoning the colony to its own devices. But it was Armchair General V which was said to be the best of the series, with its bonus campaign being a Garbanian victory in the Caprona War, and the aftermath of such an event...

Despite her popularity and looks, she was not completely cliche; her family slipped into poverty as a result of funeral costs for her father. As such, President Jean-François-Valère Varon pushed for, and achieved, state-funded funerals for everyone. "That way," said Varon, "Families won’t have to mourn their bank accounts as well as their loved ones."

Benedict Arnold Khama - Born in Port Kierkegaard, N.I.E, B.A. Khama is considered one of the foremost up-and-comers in Norfolkite politics. "They really need to get rid of these ridiculous grey wigs," he said in an interview, referring to the Monmouth Bay Trading Company's leadership. "I don't know if I'm the one who'll do so, but I'd like to hope that maybe I'll be the spark, at least, for the fuse of that one who will. Look, it's very simple: we've got to recapture that hard moral core and get back to the soil." His supporters call him Bonnie Prince Bennie, and campaign enthusiastically for him. He is very much opposed to the current administration in Norfolk-in-Esvanovia, and would be considered a staunch federalist; that is, one who desires federal rule over the colony. He sparked something of a scandal when he said he did not support independence because he believed it was as much of a pipe dream as returning to colonial rule. Were he president, he has sworn to nationalize the assets of the MBTC, effectively dissolving the company, as his first order of business.
Maria Galvez - A popular courtesan from Norfolk-in-Esvanovia, Maria was cited by several historians as one of the first federalists, that is, one who opposes Company rule of the colony, having boasted that the "utter bores" from the Monmouth Bay Trading Company she'd sleep with had "no more an ability to not put their shoes on before their pants" than they did to govern.
Jean-Pascal Ecker - Founded Fort Marilynne, a MBTC trading post. Held the title of Comte de Rolais, and was a frequent visitor to the Rhossenian Tea House in the District of Bridgetton. He was one of the last notable aristocrats to dwell in Free Norfolk City before independence; he left shortly before it was attained, likely at the behest of his wife, who did not like his relationship with a Rhossenian girl. Ecker is listed here because, like Samuel Pepys, his diary is a vital source of information for historians, particularly those studying the later years of Garbanian colonialism in Anmhonm/Free Norfolk City.

He founded the Norfolkite Diabetic Association, and his numerous books, articles, and speeches helped to simplify and explain treatment for doctors and patients alike.

She was spotlighted often for her risque entrances and matching storylines, particularly as a member of the New Women's Order in 2003, though that was considered quite a while after the original success of that stable.

Wrote a series of essays, "The History of the Norfolkite People," which attempted to deliver a Marxist analysis of Norfolkite history and society. "Murtism," as it might be called, closely resembles De Leonism, named after Daniel De Leon.

Usman Hassan Ananaf al-Yanubaa, Comte de Verdeguay et de Franberry: An ardent Garbanophile, the Comte de Verdeguay et de Franberry was a member of the Jeunes Impériaux (Young Imperials), which was a broad opposition movement that favored constitutional government for Garbania rather than the traditional absolutism. The movement recieved a significant boost in support following the expulsion of Free Norfolk City, which led to rumors of a planned coup, but this never happened. The Comte was also known for his marriage to Rebecca Rachna Niraamaya, a popular socialite, which produced one son, Omar, and seventeen daughters: Antoinette, Bridgette, Claudette, Bernadette, Marnadette, Synette, Mabrudette, Benedette, Raenadette, Bridgette, Nicolette, Claudette, Paulette, Juliette, Odette, Colette, Lisette and Genesse. The 'daughters of al-Yanubaa' would each have their own fruitful marriages, and as such, the Comte's descendants are numerous. The Comte is mentioned here because of his Norfolkite wife, as well as the fact his in-laws were supporters of reform.

She was one of the Dissenters, a member of a nonestablished church; the Old Catholic Church had long enjoyed a monopoly of being the sole officially recognized church under Garbanian colonial rule.

Perhaps it has something to do with the family's tomacco plantation.

Dante Welch: a court dwarf during the reign of Emperor Gasillnibal, Dante was the last court dwarf before the Emperor's successor, Prince Gepananuel, thought the practice demeaning, and banned it. The historian Louis-Mathieu Frary noted that he was a foundling from a foreign ship adopted by a proto-Norfolkite family, the Welches, and that he was spotted by Lady Roxaphine Beanuardt, an associate of Empress Leleabelle, who recommended his services to her; as such, when he was brought to Leleabelle, she warmed up to him real quick, and had him given the position of court dwarf. There, he met a maid named Lysnice Velcque, whom he fell in love with deeply. She was initially reluctant, but he won her over in due time, and the two were married. Despite Dante affirming he was content with his position, Gepananuel wanted to shed the remaining 'court archaicisms' and, thus, had Dante leave Court, which he did with his wife to Free Norfolk City, where he wrote his autobiography, which resulted in a scandal due to the information he revealed. His wife, who was normal-sized, loved him deeply, and they have quite a few descendants today.

Élise Clemens: Élise Clemens was the young Norfolkite woman best known as the brief and unfortunate mistress of the Emperor Dalaeraud, whose son and heir, Weyerlbert, expelled Free Norfolk City from the realm. She was a humble tavern wench, and he was the Crown Prince who wanted to slip away from his entourage and see what the colony was "really" like. Despite the concerns of her family and friends, as well as corresponding concern from his, the two pursued a relationship. Even after his marriage to a "proper" woman, he continued to pursue his side piece. It is believed by some, usually fanfic writers, that he wanted to divorce his wife, abdicate the throne, and retire to Norfolk to live with his true love, but none of this can be confirmed, although popular speculation was driven by a 'cinematic' documentary which posited that the Emperor made a crass remark about his wife (which we can't publish here) and that Clemens was his "real" love. Everything came to a head when he brought her to Garbania, and made her a lady in waiting to his unsuspecting wife. However, as these things often do, word got out; when her lover died, she was five months with child, and so fled the country after she was told the new emperor threatened to have her arrested. She hastily returned to Norfolk, where she gave birth to a son, Tuthhston, who adopted his mother's surname since "FitzEmperor" was deemed too dangerous unlike in past cases. One historian made the controversial claim that Weyerlbert's feelings of resentment for the Norfolkites (and, hence, the "real" reason for the expulsion) stemmed from his father's adultery, but most historians believe that it was hardly that influential an event. Élise Clemens lived a quiet, obscure life thereafter, as it was her son Tuthhston Clemens who would make an impact in the world.

Norfolkite Ambassadors

Postby Free Norfolk City » Wed Mar 13, 2024 2:31 am

OOC: Rather than do an entire embassy thread, I've decided to just list all Norfolkite ambassadors here as a convenient list for myself to keep track of. Should you want an ambassador of my nation in yours, just shoot me a TG and we can work out the details. Thank you.

Ephraim Mwansamulenga - Ephraim Mwansamulenga is the Crystal Castle Republic's Ambassador to TBD.
Josée-Georgette Tsiaussidis: Free Norfolk City's ambassador to the Kingdom of Abetton. Modest and sweet, she is sincerely motivated to making the world a better place, but she tends to be a tad too idealistic at times. Her mother, Marlena, is a socialite best known for her fondness for cigars, while her father Maero, is an MBTC agent suspected of advocating reform.
Nymphadora Budaeva: Nymphadora Budaeva is a Norfolkite businesswoman, political donor, philanthropist, politician, and diplomat currently serving as the Ambassador of Free Norfolk City to the Stórveldi of Aureumterra. She was initially active in local politics and civic causes, such as helping the poor, and raising funds for the arts. She has been a generous donor to and supporter of primarily progressive figures at home, and of charities in Aureumterra. She grew up in a middle-class family, the daughter of a local veterinarian and a home economics teacher. Her parents are Alyksandr Budaev and Dasha Budaeva.
Perry Clarence Mason - P.C. Mason is the Norfolkite ambassador to the United Island States of AHSCA. He seems to have many gifts: intelligence, charm, and a terrific sense of style. He's something of a rogue, and has hired a local girl from Misakichi Village, Animalopolis, as his secretary. Interestingly, his father's name was Clarence Perry Mason.
Mary Faith Rafuah: M.F. Rafuah is the Norfolkite ambassador to the Principality of Katase. She has a noble air about her, but boasts proudly of her proletarian origins. She's beautiful, she's bright, and has a considerable aptitude for intercultural understanding, especially when she makes regular efforts to learn from her hosts, often by touching base with the average man, woman and even child at events such as festivals and parades.
Sherrell Martese: Sherrell Martese is the Norfolkite ambassador to the Theocratic Matriarchy of the Holy Marsh, also known as the Romani-Mar'si Union.
Manuel Gennaro Tourneur: M.G. Tourneur is the Norfolkite ambassador to TBD. A prim and proper gentleman from a family that runs a shrimp cook-and-sell business, he is best known for wearing the same attire as a prominent purveyor of fried chicken. You know the one.
John Baldwin Shoumatoff: J.B. Shoumatoff is the Norfolkite ambassador to TBD.
Luanne Grace Margaret "Gracie" Théroux-Bénoni: Luanne Théroux-Bénoni is the Norfolkite ambassador to TBD.
James Luper: J.J. Luper is the Norfolkite ambassador to TBD.
Tedmund Cullimore: Tedmund Cullimore is the Norfolkite ambassador to Garbania. Before he became ambassador, he was a special education teacher, and he taught students including those with autism, agenesis of the corpus callosum and traumatic brain injury. "These children deserve to be heard, loved and appreciated," he told the media. "The world needs to understand that in many ways, the children have it right. We need to learn from them." He is a father of three daughters ages 17, 15 and 13.
Hayley Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorff: Born into the prestigious Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorff family, Hayley is the Norfolkite ambassador to the Grand Duchy of Leoneise.
Kyle McLennan/Pam Swain: Kyle McLennan is the Norfolkite ambassador to the Holy Empire of Rhossenia. He is a direct descendant of Reuel McLennan, who introduced baseball to the Ngombians. His wife is Pam Swain, a prominent hairstylist.
Lydia Bartlett: Lydia is the Norfolkite ambassador to the Republic of Mareyland. Underneath her pretty exterior is a strong and capable woman. She was born into the working class, and has no qualms about rolling up her sleeves and getting her hands dirty. She favors pulling one's bootstraps and appreciates hard workers.
Halil Hamid-al-Zouiszi: Halil is the Norfolkite ambassador to TBD.
Róan, Darren, Hanoch and Meladee McGillicutty: Hanoch McGillicutty is the Norfolkite ambassador to the Kingdom of Leoneise. He formerly worked as a firefighter before shifting careers. His wife is Meladee, and he has two sons in Róan and Darren.
Nkechi Amaechi
Kamorudeen Ishola
Omoniyi Kehinde
Sarah Darason
Muhammad Ali ibn Abdul Jubrin
Sabrina Henning: Sabrina is the Norfolkite ambassador to the Kingdom of Siando. A posh, aristocratic type, she is a member of the well off and well known Henning family. However, she is determined to make a name for herself rather than embrace stereotypes.

Who's Who in the Garbanosphere: Norfolkites VI

Postby Free Norfolk City » Thu Mar 14, 2024 11:30 pm

Keyara Harrington: Called "Keke-chan," by her followers, Keyara is one of the biggest Norfolkite streamers around today. She is part of a collective of online content creators called Rawrsauce on the video live-streaming service, LIfeCast.
Gillian Dvořák
Ethan Allan Ewasko
Big Jim Slade: Big Jim Slade was a Norfolkite professional wrestler, nightclub bouncer and volunteer firefighter. He was one of the foremost stars of the eighties, but had a pretty decent run in the nineties.
Yana Yellen
Ksenya Fernandez
Omar Muraco Bahma
Abella Almicar


The late-night, alcohol-fuelled marriage and subsequent annulment of pop starlet Dipsy Bubbleyum (whose real name is Jane Adelaide Lennox) has been thoroughly condemned by tabloid presses across the country.

Shazza Springsteen: Shazza is a Norfolkite singer and actress who achieved recognition in an episode of a reality television series which recorded her attempts to gain a record deal and her eventual signing with a label. Although she has become synonymous with singing songs about female empowerment that are "full of attitude," her catalogue also consists of love songs; Shazza believes female singers are often misunderstood for expressing "feminist views" or standing up for themselves, about which she often sings, explaining, "that doesn't mean that we don't love the men in our lives, and that we don't need the men in our lives." Despite being seen as 'dated' after the eighties' optimism gave way to nineties' cynicism, Shazza retained considerable popularity due to the use of her music on television and video games.
Bartholomew and Jaune Oobleck
Yogesh Chandrasekharan: Called "Yo-Yo" by his followers, Yogesh is a popular Norfolkite streamer who is also part of Rawrsauce on LifeCast.
Roxanne Wang
Wei Stromburg: Wei Stromburg is a popular fictional detective from Norfolkite literature who has appeared in numerous radio, television, movie and video game adaptations, as well as internet memes. He is considered one of the foremost characters of Norfolkite pop culture, and is even popular among other Garbanosphere members. His secretary is the femme fatale, Kamilah Gaber, who also enjoys some popularity, both as his love interest and as a proto-LGBT icon, given that her creator, Sigourney Kiefaber, wrote her as heteroflexible.
Teddy Lugiagbe
Muaz Unais
Jean-Pierre Mugabe

'Jolly’ Jacquetta Cogan

Halil Hamid-al-Zouiszi
James G. Farad
Ulene Murst
Charlita Hastings - A popular young adult author who actually is a young adult, Charlita Hastings is the author of the bestseller 'genre-spanning' series of novels, Dancing through Dimensions. She started writing stories when she was very little, and tends to write "whatever's, y'know, like, interesting" rather than stick to any one genre. Her family are old stock, a term which here means descended from the Anglo-Saxon emigres who came from England following the Norman Conquest.

Georgette Luisse Marthen

Ola O'Bannon
Aleia Le'Gare-Bryant, Comtesse de Dodomai et Sakado: Born and raised in Garbania proper, Lady Aleia was a Norfolkite sympathizer, and a financier of the True Whig Party (TWP), also known as the Garbanian Whig Party (GWP), one of the oldest political parties in Garbania today. During the waning years of colonial rule, she donated generously to Norfolkite politicians who sought to maintain Free Norfolk City's presence in the realm, and afterwards, the nascent republic. After the passing of the Titles of Nobility Amendment, she left for Garbania, where she helped form a precursor to the Assembly of the Friends of Norfolk (AFC), which promotes cultural, economic and political ties between the two countries.
Ksenya Bautista: Ksenya Bautista was the Norfolkite actress best known for starring in the popular Norfolkite sitcom, "Snake Eyes," in which she was a tramped up ballerina who moonlights as both a casino craps dealer and a catty hairdresser with a gambling addiction. The show was a smash hit, and has become something of an internet meme due to its raunchy storylines and Ksenya's endearing acting.

Kenneth Kaunnah - Kenneth Kaunnah was the District Commissioner for the District of TBD, best known for his dedication to his constituents, as well as his marriage to the glamour model Hitomi Fujiko Shimabukuro. Affectionately nicknamed Kengle by his supporters, he was famously the center of a debate over term limits, as despite his willingness to abide by the strict rules established by the Constitution, his supporters demanded that he be allowed to stay in office. A national referendum was held, offering voters the options to abolish term limits, or to establish "special exceptions," but voters chose to maintain the status quo. Kengle, for his part, encouraged his supporters to vote for his protege, Bill George Candler-Feinberg, called "Boy George" by them.

Festus Poitras - Uncle Festus, as he was popularly called, was the flamboyant and demagogic District Commissioner of the District of Shaiburg whose social reforms and radical welfare proposals were ultimately overshadowed by what some have called an unprecedented executive dictatorship that he perpetrated to ensure control of his home district. In spite of an impoverished background, he managed to rise through the ranks, aiming for the presidency. However, he died under mysterious circumstances, and his movement fractured shortly thereafter, paving the way for numerous conspiracy theories.

Getúlio Enriquillo Vargas - G.E. Vargas was a professional wrestler who was known for his unique, acrobatic, off-the-ground, flying wrestling style. He was one of the greats of his time, and one of the first to be inducted into The Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame (PWHF) and Museum, which was established to "preserve and promote the dignified history of professional wrestling and to enshrine and pay tribute to professional wrestlers who have advanced this national pastime in terms of athletics and entertainment." His funeral was attended by thousands and made the front page of newspapers nationwide.

Elvira Malaga y Santiago: One of the best known female wrestlers of her time, Elvira was credited for popularizing women's professional wrestling in Free Norfolk City. With her considerable height at five foot ten, her Bull Nakano-style hair, and Gothic Lolita fashion sense, she terrified both opponents and fans, especially when she took a break from the squared circle to break into horror movies. Her gimmick was that she was a harsh drill sargeant called the Colonel, and her partner was her real life niece, Deanna Cavicchio; they were five time women's tag team champions in the Norfolkite Wrestling Association (NWA).

Missy Missler - Some call her, out of "affection," Missy Melons, while others call her that derogatorily, but either way, Missy Missler is a Norfolkite model, actress and television personality. She started her career as a magazine centerfold for a certain kind of magazine geared to men, and modeled for fashion companies, as well as doing commercials for local and foreign companies. Missy became nationally famous, however, for publically turning down the courtship attempts of an older, prominent, wealthy tycoon. Marrying into money was not a good thing for me, she said in an interview years later.
Angela Schütz


He was the Original Shooter, the true definition of "Cowboy S***"; the liberty-takin', bone-breakin', record-makin', title-takin' son of a gun who ran rough shod all over the WWF. Now, you can relive his rise to glory, his epic feud with Faarooq, and his ascension to legendary status.

Marie-Thérèse Pravatoudom: Marie-Thérèse Pravatoudom founded the Norfolk Housing Authority (NHA) that oversees public housing within Free Norfolk City (separate groups handle the same in Norfolk-in-Esvanovia). She was a social worker who specifically worked in improving the rights of immigrants and advancing child welfare, especially in regards to eradicating the commercial sexual exploitation of children. She sought to build Free Norfolk City into the ideal example of a co-operative community at work: all hands dependent on all hands, each individual responsible for the security of each.

Vincent Kennedy Mbajiekwe
Jasmine Saint-Pierre: Jasmine Saint-Pierre was a Norfolkite writer who hosted a literary salon at her home that brought together both domestic and foreign writers. She influenced other authors through her salon and also with her poetry, plays, and epigrams, often thematically tied to her lesbianism and individualism. Born into a wealthy family, Jasmine was partly educated in Garbania, and expressed a desire from a young age to live openly as a lesbian; in fact, her first romantic partner was the daughter of a tribal chief in Ngombia whom she met while shadowing her father, visiting his sister, who had married then-Governor Tynarbert Mabkeley. Inspired by the work of Sappho, Jasmine began publishing love poems to women under her own name; writing in both Garbanian and Norfolkite, she supported feminism and minarchism. She opposed monogamy and had many overlapping long and short-term relationships, including on-and-off romances with poet Clarelle Vettique and courtesan Josette Le Houerou and longer relationships with writer Raelyrrya Ranetien and model Aksana D'Harcourt. For over fifty years, she hosted a salon at her home, bringing together writers and artists from around the world, including many leading figures in Garbanian, Norfolkite, and minority (Ngombian, Rhossenian, etc) literature; attendees of various sexualities expressed themselves and mingled comfortably at the weekly gatherings...

However, her support with single men and WLW (women-loving-women) skyrocketed with the addition of Gratwick, who was quietly laid off from the team after the election.

A More Perfect Union: The Districts of Free Norfolk City

Postby Free Norfolk City » Thu Mar 28, 2024 2:36 am

As it stands currently, Free Norfolk City is governed as a unitary state without provinces or states. However, for the purposes of administration and urban planning, it has been subdivided in various ways throughout its history; currently, the city state is divided into fifty five districts, each divided into scores of wards, then precincts, and ultimately, cells, similar to the tonarigumi of Imperial Japan. There is also one SAD, or special administrative district, the Redwall SAD, which is similar in nature to the District of Columbia in the United States, and is considered separate, but equal, among districts overall.

Each district is governed by a District Commissioner, who functions much like a state governor or provincial premier. As political parties are banned, each DC is an independent - the first District Commissioners were elected by the people of their districts to represent them as members of the All City Defense Committee, hastily formed to defend the new country from potential aggression from its neighbours. The ACDC would eventually morph into today's Congress, with a House of Representatives and Senate. The first election took place in 1876, with Valdémard Lanthier, an ethnic Garbanian, becoming the country's first President. All (federal) elections in the country are quinquennial, meaning they're held every five years; however, every district election is held every two, and every ward election every three, and every winner serves five years in office. However, there is a strict term limit, much like in the United States, limiting presidents to two terms; however, unlike the United States, the Norfolkite custom is to include (the same) term limits for every government office, as well as for justices of the Supreme Court; this also applies, unconditionally, to Norfolk-in-Esvanovia.

The fifty five districts are as follows, in no particular order:

1. Pleasantview
2. Shaiburg
3. Bankbridge
4. Shirleyville
5. Gloverstone
6. Winchestertonfieldville
7. Emmerdale
8. Lynnwood
9. Rosedale
10. Lakeburg
11. Tuvanun
12. Mayberry
13. Cottonhills
14. Heatherfield
15. Hugora
16. Cedarhurst
17. Edmonton
18. Sweet Valley
19. Seacliff
20. St. Martin
21. Beulahdale
22. Štroblovágrad
23. Rishabhgaba
24. Old Norfolk
25. Adreenabad
26. Abellaville
27. Jeannesport
28. Shanadoo
29. Pepsiville
30. Wolfridge
31. Ravenspurn
32. Eastglendale
33. Cloverfield
34. Glenora
35. Ravensrodd
36. Springfield
37. Shirleyville
38. Lawndale
39. Arlen
40. St. Louisville
41. Duncanville
42. Zamenhofurbo
43. Wascana
44. Pitcairn
45. Dohgabad (formerly Alexandria-in-Varathron)
46. Segaville
47. Rosemond Hill
48. Fort Rukkard
49. Wolfswood
50. Eeri
51. Melvillia
52. Arumlily
53. Texway
54. Guinyot

Each district has its own, unique history, with some formed on the onset of independence, and others later on in the nation's history. Old Norfolk is the oldest, while Pleasantview is the youngest.

Leaders of the Norfolkites (1555 to 20XX)

Postby Free Norfolk City » Sun May 19, 2024 8:52 pm

Colonial Governors:




Presidents:

1. Valdémard Lanthier (1868 - 1878): While George Washington fought for his country's freedom, Lanthier fought for it to remain a colony. An ethnic Garbanian, he rose through the ranks to become the head of the All City Defense Committee, formed by an impromptu gathering of who's who in the then-colony, over concerns that the Garbanians were grossly neglecting the welfare of the colony and its people. He was also a veteran of the Caprona War, and fought with honor and distinction; his fellow soldiers were his initial supporters, and were oftentimes considered the most loyal. Over the next few years, Lanthier and his supporters vigorously debated those who were either opposed to independence, or to their vision of it. His farewell address became a preeminent statement on republicanism in which he wrote about the importance of national unity and the dangers that regionalism, partisanship, and foreign influence pose to it. Lanthier is an icon of Norfolkite culture; he has been memorialized by monuments, a federal holiday, various media depictions, geographical locations, stamps and currency, and he consistently ranks in both popular and scholarly polls as one of the greatest presidents in Norfolkite history.
2. Mirchaz Ochmonach (1878 - 1883): When Ochmonach entered office, the ongoing major disputes between the Garbanian Empire and the nascent Republic were causing great difficulties for Norfolkite merchants and sailors on the high seas, while also arousing intense partisanship among contending political factions across the nation.
