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

I was going to say questionable punctuation in the motto, but thesaurus.com tells me that it is ok, so I'm going to have to say that it pulls off a medieval-style flag pretty well.

If I had to describe a nation as being just a bunch of ideas thrown in a blender and using what comes out, I think the above nation would probably be that. That isn't a bad thing, however, as their unique mix of Catholic principles, Sierra Leone-inspired coat of arms and unique geography totally different from the world we recognize leads to an interesting read and unexpected results.

AN is another post-apocalyptic wasteland country, but this one is unique in its own way. I like the general aesthetic and I definitely want to see more.

I've never seen anyone adapt or use the coat of arms of Sierra Leone of all countries, it always seems like African countries get missed out on these type of things. With that in mind, it's very unique in how the symbols are used.

The whole of NSAR is unique. The idea behind the nation is truly creative and very well executed. So I'd say that one of AN's most distinguishing feature is their excellent worldbuilding and dedication to making their nation interesting.

However, what I truly find most unique about NSAR is that they are very active on the forums and always put effort into every answer they make. I've never seen them make a lackluster response, and that is a lot to say considering how many posts they make. They also seem to be very friendly and a nice person overall.

Honestly the distinguishing feature comes from the user AND the nation. There's no particular reason why but whenever LS posts it takes my attention - not in a positive or negative way, I just notice it. Maybe it's the long and dual-word name, or the person-on-flag design, or the pink sig. I'm not sure.

In my opinion, it's their unique factbooks - which I firmly believe are among the best of any MT nation on NS. The web-style layout is thoughtfully arranged and displays real intuition on the part of the user. I would list all of the nice little touches they've added but that would take me all day. By their factbooks alone, Drongonia is one of the most memorable nations on NS, which in and of itself is an achievement, but more so for an MT nation.

Their extensive, detailed and obviously quite focused and passionate history and development of a sub-Saharan African nation. Not really too common of a location to choose for your nation surprisingly, and it's usually some kind of colony of a European colony when done so.

The concept as a whole- that being some heretical combination of GTA: San Andreas and Fallout New Vegas- bewildered me initially whilst reading the signature. It's odd seeing a perfectly executed video-gane based nation on this site, yet it's even odder, and more welcome, to see a nation combining two video games, all in a fashion that is professional, dedicated, and satirical in the concepts meaning, yet still remaining even the slightest bit formal. The factbooks are professionally made, the aesthetic of the nation perfectly resembles New Vegas while still managing to remain unique to the nation. This, I envy, but I am amazed by how much has been cranked out in so little time, while still having an iota of quality. To finish it off, this does remind me of Wexas to an extent, another great nation.

All in all? Great work.

They have very teeny tiny words on their flag. At a glance, it just looks like weird pixels being the wrong color, but it's actually words. Very different from other people who either have no words on their flag, or big, readable letters on their flag.

I know that this was pointed out before me but unlike most of the other game-based nations where at best it’s an homage and at worse a blatant copy, AN actually works with what they can get from the canon and semi-parodies it. Well done lad!

Despite the real-life circumstances they have to go through, Laka is a very nice person who channels her creativity and worldbuilding skills into her nation. I think the uniqueness comes from how open she is about some things, which let you appreciate her work much more.

I feel like through all the liberal democracies here on NS, Frisemark kinda follows the normal pattern with some added American-esque imperialism to make it not look so innocent, but the concept itself just feels...different, I guess. I've noticed the language is more similar to Danish and the other North Germanic languages than Frisian, but it's still a nice, but really unique mix of Frisian and Dutch cultures.

For this one I'll focus on the user and their almost astronomically quick rise to F7 fame. It's not that often that a nation/user shows up and becomes part of the F7 furniture in such little time. It's only been about a year since they've founded but they're already as recognisable as a user/nation with 2 - 3x that lifespan.
