Dragons are commonplace creatures in their universe, although they are non-sapient animals, not the titanic intellects frequently depicted in fantasy. They are frequently tamed and used as pets, and there are stringent laws preventing their abuse.

They have a city called Hondo on the edge of the Transantarctic Mountains, which is amusing to me as there is a town of the same name not too far from where I live IRL.

They have a Capital Act which outlaws international trade with nations who use the death penalty. Mind you this is in 1673, that's very progressive for the time. I'd imagine half of the nations in the UN don't want anything to do with Astoria.

After a coup in Brazil in 1964, a German minority in the breakaway province of Rio Grande had seized control over the economy and over the province's government. Now the German minority, backed by the DSG, the German corporation, enjoys all the benefits while the others fare much worse.

Nicole Greenwich, the founder of Arcadia, never gave up her work. Even after her term expired and she gave up office as President, she became head of the National Academy of Sciences, where she instituted the use of the metric system nationwide, and invited Alessandro Volta to Arcadia to demonstrate his new invention, the battery pile. She finally died at her desk in 1802, working tirelessly to the last.

Their elections take place every four years. Municipal elections come first in May, followed by various regional elections staggered through the summer. Finally, the two houses of the national legislature are elected in November.

The Karamikoans have a particular brand of Hinduism called Anava Hinduism which was born out of climate refugees - probably Indians. I have basic knowledge of Buddhism but they also incorporated Buddhist concepts of Samsara, karma, and dharma so I guess this religion is much more syncretic.

Surrealist Patagonia is a socialist state that allows slavery, and purges the country of senior citizens. It's also overprotective of its denizens to the point of barring them from emigrating, doesn't allow immigration, and has nukes.

The Imperial Armed Forces of the Britannic Commonwealth has a general draft and levies soldiers as young as 17. Curiously enough, while you might get deployed on a levy at the ripe age of 17, you can't be hired, as a professional trooper, until you're 18.

* they have a 45.6% GDP-Budget ratio, which is even greater then mine, and among the highest if they existed in OTL
* twelve out of every 1,000 is a soldier, which is pretty reasonable, if higher on the high end
* They have active conscription
* The secret intelligence service has a budget 4 times it's real life counterpart not even factoring in the difference in pound value.


* They got a whole stratified society going on, and they farm sentient creatures for food and minerals, which... yeah, glad I'm not them. Also now i wanna play stellaris again
