What's the distinguishing/unique feature of AN or its User?

The place to relax, unwind, share a joke, and generally goof off.

I appreciate the historic depth with Utquiagvik's listing the prominent land purchases that helped grow their country. Not many players do that aside from doing the usual conquest by force stick to get where their nations are currently.

- A very unique set of characters that I have already talked about. They are not just copy-pasted or cloned from one another, but living, breathing characters that are different from another. This can't be said enough. ♥

- I also really, really love the Tour Guide. It's not just something that drops the facts and like "Oh yeah, this is who we are and what we do." Instead, it was told from the perspective of two people - Detective Leonardo and Lieutenant Sayoko, who provides the facts, AND also drops a lot of references and a little bit of humor here and there. They put their characters into the guide, and I love reading through it! I think the History and Culture bits are my favorite.

- This one might be a little lazy or going straight to it, but: San Francisco. Many nations on this site are based around, well, actual nations! I do love that you dedicate your time on this one special city and built your lore around it. To use the age-old analogy and no offense to anyone else of course (♥), Frisco Commonwealth is an example of a small pool with the depth of a Mariana's Trench, instead of a sea that is only ankle-deep.

Utquiagvik wrote:the area of the country is pretty unique, and the flag is also unique, having the feel of something off an older television.

The idea of The Smaller, The Better for their military is a breath of fresh air. Instead of just having billions and billions of troops, have a small but very dedicated and experienced folks to run it.

On top of that, well, the politics gave me quite a chuckle because we have heard of nations accidentally bombing and invading a neutral country, but nuking it? Darkly humorous, and unique because I have never seen it before.

For goodness' sake, "Pending" is as good as spam.

AN: I think this might be the very first time I have seen someone commissioning art for their character instead of using a game / borrowing from another work with credit, etc, etc. Content aside, it's admittedly unique.

Perhaps one of the more unique aspects of them, in general, is their brand and character recognizability. The names Mercer and von Stein are so unique to Brap and you could not mistake them for anyone else. Compared to the many characters on this site, those names are perhaps more recognizable.
Rapture City

  • In the underwater city, two roles have emerged from the City's ongoing civil war: the City Monitors who defend the peace and the Red Caps who fight against unjust systems. The city's infrastructure is crumbling under its own weight and kinship is snuffed by the paranoia of totalitarianism. Yet the people would be in for a surprise as their virtual overlord have died many years ago as the oppression continues under his name...
  • Not an 1-1 exact replica of Bioshock lore and Rapture City. Only the city's atmosphere and setting is maintained.

Tbh from today's (and previous) viewings of Wuchu, I feel like the distinguishing feature of AN is that I can't seemingly wrap my head around what it is (or maybe I'm a fucking donkey who knows), but something tells me that if I could, that Wuchu is well thought out iceberg, the deeper you dive, the more symbolism and meaning you can find with each features

AN has what I can only describe as their own (sorta) version of the Nanjing massacre, which is described as detailed as PG-13 rules allow. Moreover than that, it ends up with their forces eventually loosing the fight- a breath of fresh air from the usually undefeatble armies which can be seen on the site.

I really like how they exposed the flaws of capitalism and the inevitable revolution that happens from it, and it's not a cliche Marxist-Leninist revolution either but something else entirely. The location is also damn, an underwater city in the middle of the north atlantic, id be funny if they built it too close to the mid atlantic ridge and some geologic event causes the whole country to get flooded. I think the natural disaster and infrastructure aspect of the nation should be explored in greater detail, especially considering there isn't much technical information about the city itself.

Simple- AN is a nation lacking nearly any traffic laws. I’ve only seen this on the site once- in a Egypt-ish state, where in a wierd sense of fashion the user describes this as actually beneficial (:rofl:). Now what sets Sherechia apart from this is that AU describes the ups and downs (mainly downs) of this kind of thing. Actually admitting that some policies of a nation that semi-represent user’ views are actually bad- very unusual!

Actual Native American states are a criminally underdone concept for how much alternate history and storytelling potential they have, and they've actually decided to go for that route and stick to it.
The Germanian Empire | "Gott erhalte Germania..."
Factbooks | Music | Tech Level: PT/FanT | Current Year: 1942 AE

In a strange world not so different from ours, a young empire stands in the heart of Europa. Born and forged in the fires of war, and headed by an embittered Kaiserin and her ambitious generals. Stretched to a breaking point and groaning under the stress and hubris of its past victories, the Fatherland stands on guard. But on the forefront of a new world, fighting a new war from without and within, will it survive?

While they did originally have their nation be based on Tanya the Evil or at least from what I recall from the past, which was cool, and impressive seeing as the lore from the wiki isn't very developed. It is nonetheless nice to see a well-written and non-edgy version of Germany in this case, being based on the Kaiserreich.
