Arcadia has adopted the metric system in late-18th century and used to consider non-metric nations slightly inferior. However, people do realize that it's wrong to judge a nation by its measurement system alone.
As of the year 1970, Arcadia lacks any serious adversary, and more and more people are eager to proclaim Pax Arcadiana. However, concerned voices warn our government not to be lulled into a false sense of security and invincibility, as it might subvert this nation and turn it into a monstrosity hellbent on subjugating all the 'inferior' cultures for the sake of 'mankind's progress,' which is likely to fail and almost guaranteed to irrevocably ruin all the hard-earned prestige.

Fraternity/sorority partying is not part of Versilian culture and is even frowned upon as an activity for irresponsible foreign youths. Versilian college students are far, far more likely to spend their time engaging in more positive and fulfilling pursuits, of which (Kremvhist) religion is included.

It is generally believed that Dozdchenian State Worship is just a postmodern interpretation of theocratic dictatorship, with the High Inspector venerated as a medium between the State and the People like how religious leaders are mediums between their Gods and their followers.

A PMT dictatorship situated in a post-colonialist world, not long free from the shackles of an empire. It is not looking for a pursue of liberty, but rather order and stability. Third-way economy backed by subsidized corporations, social classes ranked by eugenics, nationwide public surveillance and zealous state worship -- Dozdcheny is run by a faceless, nameless High Inspector, himself a social experiment with a goal to reject humanly fallacies. | OOC: Experimental lab for graphics and themes.

The Vincosians don't like using force to control their populace. Instead, they instill Vincosian values into the children through educational indoctrination and the affirmation of the superiority of Vincosian culture. After this, the children are shown how Vincosia as a nation seeks to uphold and propagate these values and why they should seek to do the same for the sake of those poor people who were unlucky enough to be born under the banner of a different nation. While this applies to all children, the Vincosians make sure to provide extra attention to second-generation immigrants and the children of conquered peoples since their households are more likely to uphold the values and culture of their previous nation, so that must be counterbalanced through early indoctrination. We find that this gentler method of indoctrination allows Vincosians to enjoy more freedoms and have a more genuine love for their nation while still making sure that they maintain a healthy level of national pride.

Versilia opposes foreign imperialism and aids wars of national liberation and self determination. Foreigners who think themselves so high and mighty as to try and convert others to their culture are considered the lowest of scum.

The state plays a key role in the protection and promotion of the economic and social well-being of its population. It is based on the principles of equality of opportunity, equitable distribution of wealth, and public responsibility for those unable to avail themselves of the minimal provisions for a good life. The U.S.P. welfare model promotes society-wide health and social equity through tax-financed services, including universal health care, education, student aid, disability pensions, and unemployment insurance, etc.

There are almost no laws restricting what people do on their own time as long as it doesn't hurt other Vincosian citizens. Also, conscription in Vincosia is not something that can be removed or reinstated. Universal conscription is a fact of life in the Republic and one cannot be a citizen without accepting that fact.

Conscription can only be activated during national emergencies, including the aftermath of natural disasters and armed conflicts. Otherwise, activation of conscription is illegal. However, Versilian culture views martial lifestyles and activities positively, which in a way make up for it.
