Everything they do looks so crisp! Their factbooks and anything else they do always looks so freaking nice, and it's so impressive. This only goes hand in hand with a naton concept that's clear, understandable, and believable.

The fact that they're a 5 year old nation, and they still don't have any factbook.

We are a FT space federation, that uses the vastness of space, and our advanced technology, to create a post-scarcity economy, with robots and dinosaurs. The closest equivalent to our nation is the Culture, and the Sophons. The nation takes place in an a universe that was devastated by a nano-machine swarm 500 years ago.

I know it's a bit generic for me to say it, but honestly, their flag is very nice for the style it has. Most symbols like that look way too garish for me, but Trokondas looks nice AF

I love the historical dispatch which goes through many different time periods showing the development of the nation from its roots to their 'modern day.' Very cool nation name which fits the Sci-Fi setting as well.

One of AN's best feature would have to be the way they color headers with this light yellow color as well as the unique font they use. It adds a lot of character to their nation.
Rapture City

  • In the underwater city, two roles have emerged from the City's ongoing civil war: the City Monitors who defend the peace and the Red Caps who fight against unjust systems. The city's infrastructure is crumbling under its own weight and kinship is snuffed by the paranoia of totalitarianism. Yet the people would be in for a surprise as their virtual overlord have died many years ago as the oppression continues under his name...

The Genocide of Femboys :salute:

If I had to pindown just one thing that I think is Rapture's best feature, it's the ambition that is currently going behind it. It isn't a 1 to 1 accurate representation of the In-Game Rapture Republic, but unlike the predecessor, he is still faithful to its source material. Rather than using it to make some kind of fantasy city where his sexual and power fantasies are placed above actual worldbuilding, the AN is so far creating a genuinely unnerving representation of what I can only describe as the fall of such a society, one where Totalitarianism fails and those who enforce it resort to increasingly drastic measures to prevent the total collapse of society - whilst anarchists who do make what could have been a """"perfect"""" society into a dangerous city.

All in all, can't wait to see what's next.

AN: They have a Snow Owl as their national animal, which is great!

But they like country humans, so they must be eliminated.

Unconventional storytelling, both through conversation and through first-person. Certainly a good break from an omnipresent third-person narrative. Sometimes it takes more than one perspective to worldbuild.

Also thanks God, I pressed review.

Well, this user here takes us back to third-person narrative and a massive one at that. It has the "shedding light on the truth" kind of feeling rather than being an obviously inclined narrative that works in favor/against the characters and settings. Also the "nation vs world state" kinda theme.

PMT/Early FT - Decopunk. Zitravgrad is a crowned republic in a planet somewhere else in the universe. The formerly wartorn nation keeps a facade of normalcy and order while enjoying the societal and cultural decadence that marks the new Roaring Twenties. The paranoid authoritarian government tries its best to uphold order in the face of uncertainty, while its people want nothing more than a breathing space.

I mean yeah I know that is the OOC flag, and sure there is also the insanely detailed factbooks about the culture of Zitravgrad, the deep characterization that Miroslavsky and Miroslavskaya have, the interesting worldbuilding, and the beautiful formatting.

Ashwood is what TNO players would call a Dengist - shedding away the worst aspect of a system while maintaining its tradition as it reforms. The balance between reformism and traditionalism isn't often explored on NS.

Very complex stories that are not just one-off or single-theme nations. Knowing them deeply, I know that they have the best and most evaluative of nearly all the nations here on NS, and it's amazing on what kind of stuff they can write - a mix of horror and shock-value, mixed with brief moments of heartwarming and tear-jerking. Because a country doesn't have to be a perpetual nightmarish landscape.
