The very idea of a mashup of GTA V & Fallout NV, as a singular nation, is genius. It's fascinating to see what people can come up with, especially with such high levels of creativity that the New San Andreas Republic has. From the wonderful factbooks with both images, and even gifs, to the extensive level of detail that has gone into constructing such a nation.

In fact, I would go as far to say this is my favorite nation in terms on concept, creativity, and overall design. But I am biased due to my extensive love for Fallout: New Vegas, and my appreciation for GTA V (although that as of late has soured due to the milking of Online, but I digress). Great job, either way. : )

It’s a nice fleshed out nation, that is pretty good at what I can assume it’s trying to do. It’s oddness in very subtle things makes it quite unique, and they generally seem like a nice person behind the nation

I’m sorta jealous of the fact they can format their factbooks, when I can barely color a background block. It’s also a bit strange that their factbooks are dispatches rather than factbooks. I see a future much brighter than mine on NS

Thank you! That's so very kind of you! In the future, when I'm less busy with my personal life, I can help you with formatting, if you'd like ^^ also, I just wanted to say this, you have a bright future as well, and you are not a disappointment!

I like how the AN is set 100 years from now, and how the history had started in 2041. It has a very nice and interesting history factbook, which including things which would be possible to achieve in the future, and that's what I generally like - the fact this takes place in the 22nd Century. The main factbook in itself has a good start, especially in regard to its safety. Also, the flag is very cool!

Overall, my opinion towards this nation is very favorable.

I think if they expanded their lore about their nation and didn't focus quite so much on the development of their region (which I'll admit is doing x100 better than ,say, most one-person regions tend to) they might be more fascinating and stand out a bit more. But with their generic name, their generic flag and sort of shallow factbooks, they just don't stand out too much to me.

NSAR's idea for a nation is truly a wild thing that even I wouldn't have thought of making, but here they are!

Their Factbooks are very polished, taking it's inspiration from the GTA Franchise, and looks very much the user has put lots of time and effort into making them. (definitely way more than I ever did)

Personally, even if they're practically a new user, they're pretty active and knows and interacts with loads of people, which I find fascinating. (cuz most new users always go on their typical troupe of trial and error to know better in the game)

If other nations were as creative as yours, it'd be a much better game to play in!

As I read through their history factbooks, I can't help but shake the obvious and possibly unnuanced inspiration of colonial and independent Rhodesia from my mind. I say 'unnuanced' because they seem to portray natives who inhabited the lands of Cape Torchia as completely unreasonable savages who attacked unprovoked, when in real history not many examples would fit that to a tee. Even more, the history of Cape Torchia seems to parody that of many post-colonial African nations without a thought, going so far as to say (abridged) 'pioneers [colonizers] didn't like X, so they fought it unanimously', be it communists, native uprisings, or native communist-guerrilla movements. I feel like I'm just reading a funny Rhodesian propaganda music video, with One Fire or It's a Long Way playing in the background, which not only lowers my opinion of the user, but really kills my interest in the nation as I could get everything I wanted from the nation from elsewhere.

Honestly, I think it has great potential. They're still relatively new so it's understandable that they haven't yet fleshed out their lore, but I think as time goes on they'll be able to get their bearings, so to speak. I mean, this Azania today is vastly different (and better IMO) from the Azania I started out with, so it stands to reason that the same will be true for them.

Their high death rate, large mining industry, and the dollar sign on their flag conveys a nation that cares more about its GDP than the well-being of its citizens. Not a fan. Seems like a very controlling nation which works its citizens to the bone.

It leans pretty hard into utopia. I'm curious how they managed to pull off thriving high-end biotech & military-industrial sectors, without needing to attract gargantuan investments in private-sector research & development.

That being said, it's interesting that they rebelled against the USSR, during the decline of soviet communism. That's a fun period of history in which to start a nation.

It's a bit idealistic, but I do like the history behind their escape from external colonization & rise to self-governance & democracy.

Also, how did this island nation go unnoticed during world war 2? Or is this an alternate universe where world war 2 never happened? Either way, something interesting is going on!

Don't really know a lot about them, but the concept from what I've read (Just the sig) opens up possibilities, so I guess there is something to look out for in the future,
Year: 1476 ♦ Status: Civil War ♦ Claimants: Porphyrogenitos Rhōmānós Palaiológos | Strategos Georgios Bryennios | Eidikos Michael Doukas ♦ Government: Bureaucratic Republican Absolute Monarchy

May 17th, 1476: Romanos ends his recruitment of mercenaries in Iberia and plots to sail to Genoa to gather more men, his Uncle-in-law Henry of Portugal helps finance Romanos in his quest to retake the Queen of Cities. Qara Qoyunlu finally begins attacking Demetrios all across the eastern borders, raiding into Armenia and even aiding the Mamluks who had recently taken Latakia; George Bryennios is forced to turn back to push back the Mamluks.
