What's "neo" about it? If it only means younger than 70 years, that would make Franco a neo-fascist, and I'm certain a majority sees him, and his reign, as an old-fashioned fascist.

Ketilhöfn (Kettle Harbour)
Image

Account Name: Kelnjorvik
Elected Representative: Ásleif Ómarsson

Population: 39,593
Ethnic Composition:
68% Dagmarian
12% Inuit
11% Icelandic
9% Korean

Background: The city of Ketilhöfn, or Kettle Harbour as it is known in English, is a city in North Central Dagmar. The city was established in the year 962 CE, during the Viking Age. A Norwegian named Bjólin Ketilsson is said to have been the founder of the city, then called Bjólinborg. Bjólin Ketilsson was revered for his principled nature, being democratic and fair. Upon his death in 1001, Bjólinborg was renamed Ketilhöfn in his honour. It remained a small fishing port for many hundreds of years, until around 1688, when urban development began. It has since developed into a prosperous, lively city of academia, culture, and art. It is notable for being one of the most environmentally friendly cities in Dagmar, and is also renown for its cleanliness. It is a popular tourist destination, with a thriving music and arts scene, as well as being home to multiple attractions, sights, landmarks, and museums. Business is driven by a combination of information technology, fishing, tourism, and other smaller businesses. It is a popular winter sport city, with Ice-Hockey and skiing being the most popular sports. This is no doubt helped by Ketilhöfn's status as one of the chilliest and snowiest cities in all of Dagmar. Today, the city is a hotbed for progressive politics, and is almost always considered an assured seat for the left-libertarian parties in the Senate.

I'm willing to break down that "Stalin wasn't a Socialist" (he was definitely not a Communist in the slightest. Socialism is more debatable) because this misconception eventually forms a large proportions of anti-Socialist preconceptions and, as a Socialist, I feel it should be eradicated in order to avoid vilification of largely anti-totalitarian ideology.

Felt like I'd clarify, if you weren't aware neo-fascism was its own thing. *shrugs* Since you can still be an original, classic fascist in modern times.

Background: Pjeturshøfn was originally founded by Norwegian whalers in 1680 as a small port to resupply their vessels on long voyages due to its natural harbour. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the settlement grew as more whalers from Iceland, Norway and Dagmar settled there. Later, in the 20th century, Ukrainian fishermen and their families began to settle in the small whaling town in search of a better life. During the 20th century, due to increasing environmental regulation and dwindling fish stocks, the town faced economic hardship and declined from a population of 6500 in 1965 to 3000 in 1995. Nowadays, the town is rebounding due to new factories producing environmentally friendly technologies and tourism due to the island's luscious green valleys, snow-capped peaks and distinct culture.

I believe it would be beneficial for our nation. Being a small nation, it's hard to get free trade and other economic opportunities that have as widespread benefits like what the European Union would provide. But do I believe that we should accept everything the European Union does with open arms? No, and caution must be exercised if we do join and the interests of Dagmar should come first.

Krellrvatn
Image

Account Name: United Provinces of Atlantica
Elected Representative: Aðalragnarr Sindrisson
Population: 6,000
Ethnic Composition:
Dagmari - 91%
Icelandic - 4%
Faroese - 4%
Other - 1%

Background: Krellrvatn was founded by pagans fleeing from Christian persecution to the safety of mountains in northeastern Dagmar in 1057. Its location on a large lake (similarly named Krellrvatn) provided it with ample fishing supplies, allowing it a strong food supply that allowed to grow in hard-to-farm lands of the northeast; it's large size (for the sparsely populated northeast) made it a major cultural and trading hub in the northeastern mountains. Its status as a large, predominantly pagan settlement additionally contributed to it becoming a major site of pilgrimage to northeastern Pagans in particular; the town has additionally fiercely kept other traditions throughout the centuries, such as keeping a local monthly thing of all citizens that governs most of the affairs of the town. The town is additionally home to large Icelandic and Faroese populations, who have immigrated to the town for various reasons; many of them in fact coming to the town, fleeing, like the founders of the town, Christian persecution in their homelands.

Today Krellrvatn is notable for its status as something of a cultural mecca, but is best known for both its incredibly strong resistants to Christianity, its pilgrimage industry, its fierce resistance to tourists (not Heathen pilgrims, who are always welcomed with open arms and hospitality) and businesses that attempt to profit from the pilgrimage industry, and its incredibly strong socialist and labour movements; over 99% of the town's workers are affiliated with a union, with around 80% of the town's workers affiliating with one of the unions in the Revolutionary Workers' Union; most other workers affiliate with the Dagmar Workers Association. The city is politically dominated by the Revolutionary Socialist Party; both Krellrvatn's Mayor (although there is no City Council, as what would normally be managed by a City Council is managed by the monthly Thing) and elected Representative are members of the RSP, which has enacted local policies of nationalisation of the municipal utility systems, strong rent control policies, affordable, public housing construction (to prevent gentrification and protect the city's culture), and strong promotion of public transportation; however, the Pagan Front, closely tied to the town's Felthric Rite community (whilst the RSP is to the contrary tied to the mainstream Ásatrú groups), is additionally a major force in local politics and has consistently performed second at the polls.
Religion:
Ásatrú (Mainstream Pagan) - 71%
Felthric Rite (Nationalist Pagan) - 14%
Irreligious - 7%
Eclectic Pagan - 4%
Lutheran - 3%
Other - 1%

Aðalragnarr Sindrisson would love to have some questions.

Maklohi Vai wrote:To all:

How do you plan to deal with the ever-expanding Dagmarn financial sector?


In order to prevent a situation like the Great Depression in the 1930s or more recently our close neighbour Iceland in 2008, it is necessary to bring the Dagmarn financial sector under public ownership; this will additionally remove stains upon our great nation such as the practice of Usury, profiting off the savings of individuals, and massive foreclosures that often lead to homelessness.

Maklohi Vai wrote:Who should deal with Syria?


The major world powers---the United States, Russia, China, Brazil, etc, should help develop and send aid to an international coalition dealing with the local powers in the region---Turkey, Iran, etc., to establish a temporary alliance between the Government, the Opposition, and the Kurdish independence forces in order to combat al-Nusra and ISIS.

The freedom to believe in, and worship any deities you'd like, or not to believe in and worship any deities at all.

Nordmark
Image

Account Name: Varjager (Zombie Fascists)
Elected Representative: Johanna Björnsdottir

Population: 2,300
Ethnic Composition:
Dagmarian: 78 %
Other Nordic peoples (Icelandics, Faroese, Danish, Norwegians, Swedes): 15 %
Thai: 5 %
British: 2 %

Background: Nordmark has been more or less populated since the middle of the 16th century, but didn't became much of a town until the late 18th century. The municipality is located far up north, and lies relatively isolated in the inland. The main industry is agriculture.

The people of Nordmark see themselves as stoic and honourable. A common attitude is that the government exists to provide health care, roads, a good basic safety net, and other public services, while they don't like when the government, or other outsiders for that matter, snoops in on their personal life too much. In that regard, they are both individualistic and collectivist, while simultaneously being very local patriotic.

In recent years, many immigrants from Thailand have come to Nordmark, mostly due to Dagmarians on vacation having met local Thai people and formed relationships.
Religion:
Asatru and other pagan religions: 53 %
Church of Dagmar: 18.5 %
Buddhism: 4 %
Anglicanism: 1.5 %
Non-religious/unpracticing: 23 %

It shold be noted however, that it is not too uncommon in Nordmark to confess to two (or more) religions (often combined with paganism in some form), and at the same time not practice religious rites very often.

8.6% Arab
8.1% Chinese
6.6% Norwegian
5.4% EU
5.1% South Asian
4.4% Somali
3.2% Iranian
2.1% Other

Background: A southern suburb of the the capital Ryttaren, AREA NAME is a fairly affluent community with a focus on the IT and technology sectors, which has attracted educated workers largely from China and India. An area which was one of the earliest in Dagmar to experience a relatively large influx of immigrants, it has taken in a larger share of refugees than the rest of the nation, and is one of the few areas where native Dagmar do not make up a majority of the population. AREA NAME tends to be a common entry point for many immigrants due to the existence of many established immigrant communities.

The local college has a sister program with another college in South Korea.

The area is somewhat divided both racially and economically; southern areas tend to be wealthier and home to more Koreans, Chinese, Indians, and Iranians, while the northern parts of the suburb have a greater percentage of recent refugees. Most immigrants from the EU tend to be Polish. The wealthier Native Dagmari are concentrated around a lake near the eastern limits of the area. However, the area is somewhat integrated.

Historically center-right, AREA NAME has gradually shifted fairly strongly toward the Social Democratic Party in the past two decades, especially with increasing immigration and concern regarding the rise of nationalist parties.

Port Dagerbard
Image

Account Name: Arglorand
Elected Representative: Flæmingur Hanssen
Population: 28,971
Ethnic Composition:
76.85% (22,263) - Dagmari
12.5% (3,622) - Polish
5.4% (1563) - Norwegian
2.7% (789) - Turkish
0.7% (203) - Danish
1.85% (531) - Other

Background: As the name would indicate, an industrial harbor town founded in the 19th century to provide the province of Dagerbard with an ice-free port, Port Dagerbard experienced severe economic difficulties in recent years with the advent of a liberalisation of the economy and the bankruptcies of many local factories. As the constituency of Port Dagerbard includes its semi-rural suburbs, it has traditionally had a strong agrarian-voting bloc unusual for most cities; only in recent years was this broken by an unexpected, but not unsurprising win for the Social Democratic Party's candidate Flæmingur Hanssen.

The city has several historic, culturally significant buildings in the port district dating since the 19th century, but most of it is largely composed of 60s-70s apartment blocs and social housing. A burgeoning nightlife, with several clubs and bars, has sprung up in recent decades, and the historic port district is undergoing vast renovation. Although the majority of the population are overwhelmingly Dagmari, there exist significant ethnic and religious minorities, most notably the recently-developed Polish community, which constitutes an eighth of the population.
Religion:
50.92% (11,698) - Lutheran (Church of Dagmar)
31.34% (7,199) - non-religious (atheist, agnostic, irreligious) and unaffiliated
13.88% (3,189) - Roman Catholic
3.3% (760) - Sunni Islam
0.43% (98) - Neopagan (Asatru, Felthric, etc.)
0.12% (27) - Other

Fljóthafnburg
Image

Account Name: Glasgia
Elected Representative: Jóhann Rúriksson

Population: 34,917
Ethnic Composition:
75% (26,187) Dagmarn
11.1% (3,888) Norwegian
8% (2,792) Polish
1.4% (488) Turkish
1% (350) Danish
1% (346) Icelandic
2.9% (1,005) Other

Background: Known to many as the "workhorse of Dagmar", Fljóthafnburg rose to prominence as an industrial port during the late Industrial Revolution. The port's location - with an extended channel in its approach - had previously led to some use as a Swedish naval base but with Dagmar's independence the new military did not continue Fljóthafnburg's use and the town became a shell of its former south. However, its command of the Norwegian Sea eastwards soon attracted industrialists who wished to build trade links between Dagmar and Norway's northern provinces. Meanwhile, the revival of Dagmarn whaling encouraged prospectors to establish base in the port in order to take advantage of vacant territory along the Norwegian coast.

Since then, Fljóthafnburg has expanded greatly and remains an industrial hub for Dagmar - The centre of much trade with Scandinavia, the Baltics and Germany. The port attracts significant numbers of migrants seeking work and is the town's primary employer, though recently some variety of companies has started to move into the area. Unfortunately, despite the remarkably friendly demeanour of the town's inhabitants, Fljóthafnburg retains one of Dagmar's worst areas for crime outside of the capital and is largely impoverished. Little progress in these areas - and more recently even regression following the fallout of the financial crisis - may be contributed to the recent election of Senator Jóhann Rúriksson of the Socialist Workers' Party, despite the town's traditional record of being a marginal between the Social Democratic Party and the Revolutionary Socialist Party.
