Is the following thing canon in BN?

The place to relax, unwind, share a joke, and generally goof off.

Is this a joke? Of course!



BN was born out of a bloody struggle that is a key part of BN's history.

5.45x39mm is used, albeit not standard issue yet, as a deal with the Kalashnikov Group for licensed production of the AK-74 is still being worked.

BN's leader was (or is) part of the armed forces, but has never fought in frontline combat?

After finishing his studies, English enlisted in the Drongonian Defence Force, where he would become a combat-trained fighter pilot. English was never deployed overseas during his period of service from 1983 - 1990. He was, however, involved in the training of new recruit pilots and the training of pilots from the New Zealand Air Force, during their short joint-training programme in 1988.

Almost sounds like you wrote that one for me! :clap:

Canon.

BN has a lot of bad drivers.
A decadent, capitalist, absolute-ish monarchy. The aristocracy desperately clings onto the good old days while everyone else looks to the future under a charismatic young ruler and a true emergence from decades of conservative paranoia and isolationism. Tech level: MT, current year: 2020. Factbooks are perpetually mid-retcon, so disregard any marked WIP. Using IRL geography until further notice since I'm too lazy to make something original. NS stats are not used, Autocracy policy is not canon, Theocracy is semi-canon.

No, getting a driver's licence is significantly harder than in most countries and according to the Sulivannian Bureau of Statistics (SBS) the passing rate on first attempt from 2010-2019 was 65.6%. Not because our drivers are inherently bad, though, but rather the difficulty of the tests and processes.

The BN has suffered general depopulation in recent years.

Yes, but that is normal. The infrastructure is totalled, and was before we existed. The population dropped by over 90% before we existed. Bombed out cities, and most of the people died; combine that with the resulting mental health crisis that we are unequipped to handle (and don't really care to do anything about if it doesn't make us money or requires effort), and the radioactive ice age, and yeah things are bad enough to result in general depopulation. Further not helped that most births are stillbirths, or have serious and severe birth defects, such as being born without limbs, or not having a brain. Low successful birth rates and high death rates are not a great combination, and it's not a problem unique to us.




BN uses a cryptocurrency as their official currency.
