There are many more capitalism advocates than anti-capitalism supporters on NSG, mostly because the amount of US users is so high.

I'm still a capitalist in this Holocene shit-show, ask again in 10-15 years to see if I've gone eco-socialist or eco-fascist.

because the bureaucrats and politicians were too scared out of their asses to climb up on that damn hypergolic candlestick and conscripted a pleb to do it for them.

ahem, my cynic's side is showing again.

That smile deserved lyrics all by itself, apparently.

Ahh...shit...I just remembered that I still need to work on how the Space Race is going in the Las Palmeras-verse. Sergei Korolev is still alive and the Red Army captured Von Braun and all the Peenemunde staff in '43. Eh, I'll get to it, eventually....

So on that day, a pure love fantasy was borne, invigorated by Reinkalistan's encouragement.

Once again, Kiu's heart began to pound with joy as the possibilities began to flood his mind: A dreamy vacation in the Pacific, sipping rose on the beach while suntanning next to Mr. Perfect, the Comrade Secretary. Their dates at the arcade, where Comrade Secretary would win every prize there was on the claw machine, gifting each of them into Kiu's waiting arms. They would look into one another's eyes, and Kiu would lean in to smell the soft cigar smoke lingering on his jacket, smiling as they held each other in their arms tightly. And of course, the wedding and honeymoon: no expenses would be spared as Kiu and Comrade Secretary enjoyed the best ceremony one could have in Vladivostok, And then, after they became partners forever, they would retreat to the cabin that Comrade Secretary had built with his own hands where...

Kiu opened his eyes, changed forever. He knew what he would have to do, and bought a one-way trip to St. Petersburg. A new life was about to begin!

This might be a super-specific cliché but nations that officially speak English where it is conveniently exactly identical to whatever variety of English is spoken by the user behind the nation.
