I love how unique and realistic East Plate is. Their worldbuilding is god-tier and helps make a believably history of a British colony in South America (British Guiana doesn’t count). I also love the fact he set his world in the 1870s, a very interesting and under-studied time period that was actually very important and set the stage for really the next 100 years of history.

As I stated before, I love northern Europe. The combination of Denmark and Holland sounds like the perfect nation to do research on, look at its history, and see the recent events of it. Also, the nation makes sense to exist, where some of the smaller but still influential European nations fuse and could alter some of the events in real life.

I have to say that I don't have like much of any thoughts on the above nation simply because all that's there is a barebones history factbook and a military factbook that is just numbers.

To start—as many have said before, To Endless Tempests is by far their best factbook and probably one of the best I've seen on NS. I've noticed by going through the raw codes of their factbook that they put a horrendous amount of tab codes, which is a bit weird but I see how it really helps with the formatting. Their writing style, especially in To Endless Tempests, makes the aura around it both suspenseful and hopeful. I have to admit, I've got goosebumps before from reading the last line in that factbook.

Their only other factbook with some detail is the one on Vasyl Fournier, and it's pretty well written for your average biography, but I'd recommend expanding on him a bit more. Along with that, the user behind Lumnoscherya is really nice and we've had many positive interactions. I hope that they'll get to writing more, because this nation's topic itself is really interesting.

Meadowfields is quite a successful nation, even with it's huge size and a lot of different ethnicities. It just makes me think that Meadowfields (political-wise) is what Vrigny tried to be, but so far has failed. Either way, it's in general a pretty cool and interesting nation!
The Third Republic of Vrigny is here!
Now with extra democracy, liberty and justice!
How long will Vrignyan democracy survive? Hopefully forever!
After all, Vrigny is a chaotic nation. Flag lore!; Vrigny Quiz!
Some Third Republic factbooks: Constitution; Political Parties; VDDF
Just... don't look at the political freedom stat. I have no luck with issues to fix that.
Surprisingly, Vrigny is socialist! Who says that flags need to represent you well anyway?

Their flag and the type of nation they are sort of conflict in my opinion. When I see their flag, I get vibes of a Draconian, brutal kingdom/dictatorship when its aggressive dragon and its black and red color scheme. Then I find out it's actual a democracy dedicated to such values and it just seems odd. Other than my stupid and inaccurate perception though, they're a great and interestingly developed nation with a lot of factbooks and clearly time, effort and love has been put into it and for that I applaud.

Not allot has been written but whats there is good and very well designed. Fallout based nations are rare at least to me. The name is just funny because it reminds me of Soviet womble. With more factbooks it has a high potential of being a very unique and just a overall good nation. Also how did you get the animated flag, every time i try and upload something it has to be very small or it wont work.

AN:Im pretty sure i did you before but whatever. Not much to say other than its pretty underdeveloped. Barely anything about the nation, mostly just a bunch of random stuff.

I do not really know, Reich of the New World (RotNW) is certainly a nation that is a mainstay (even if indirect) of the F7 crew and a nation thats really familliar to me, so its kinda well worth noting that they are still kinda active here unlike others. But my impressions of the AU had not really been colorful so that doesn't help the presentation.

Its Hard FT, and I find its aesthetics hard to vibe with. No Warhammer 40K marines, or attractive princesses in space, no humans, but just bulky machines or warfarmes that look like out of Predator or the Scrin in CNC Tiberium Wars. But I find some of the lore confusing, for example they say that the Archons are a multiversal species that is kinda biologically modified similar to the Combine in Half-Life perhaps, but I can still find tidbits such as this guy going to be assigned to be married to a "princess". Probably a "princess" who looks like a Predator or an insectoid exoskeleton, if you're into it...

Overall, with its detail and depth I couldn't find distinction with its Hard FT setting and gritty grimdark aesthetic. Sure, they have all of these arsenals, armies and space fleets, with all the too common narrow Military-Wank focus that a lot of PMT and FT nations always inevitably get into (and never gets out), military organization, and military strategies, but what of it? Sometimes it feels like an impressive listing of arsenal and weaponry, and nothing else...

I don't think I could sum up anything I hate more than communist, anime cat girls. It's like the epitome of just everything anti me. I also tried reading the lore once and found it a bit confusing, but it is what it is. They are a monarchy though, but that doesn't do much for me since she seems to be a totalitarian son of a bitch.

Their habit of using '3' instead of 'E' in their pre-title national facts section makes them sound like a 12-year-old on the early internet days using 1337-speak which was apparently cool at some point. I don't know if it's an IC or OOC thing or what, but it's just an odd thing that sticks out to me about this nation.
