So, sorry if this is a simple and not very thought out question, but across your writings, do you have a favorite character? Whenever I'm writing out nations I find myself picking out one or two golden eggs out of the bunch, but with your massive amount of amazing ones, I couldn't choose one myself. But yeah, do you have a favorite, or a set of favorites?


Better late than never and sorry for the late response

Anyway there are two different types of world: the SP-verse and miscellaneous. Miscellaneous are worlds that are not set in the SP universe such as CBA and Rapture.

Now, I have two favorites from each branch: Siegfried Muller of Deutsche Uberreste from the SP-verse and Elijah Rhodes from Rapture Republic. Now why the two of them? Because I felt like one had a good concept and another was well-developed as a character. Siegfried Muller is a German ruthless mercenary yet he is fun and laidback which is why he is my go-to character to write when I used Deutsche Uberreste as I felt the others weren't... eh, fun to write with. Now, why Elijah for the other? Because the way I wrote his story from the first narrative point of view was one hell of a ride and his character had changed so much from start to finish. I added bits of myself into him when I wrote Elijah's cold exterior.

So in your directory Factbooks, you say you have links embedded in the directory. But so far I have only seen two directory Factbooks with a link. Is there a reason why the others don't have links or are you trying to work on setting up links?

- Starting off with a bit of a downer note: The most frustrating thing that you had to deal with on your NS career?

- And to counterbalance this: The best RP or the best thing that you have ever done, and that you are genuinely happy with it? I'm sorry if this was asked before.

- Do you have a running theme, in particular, when you create characters? For instance, bar the obviously long names, people told me my characters tend to be wholesome, tall, or has that adorable look to them... for the most parts, anyway. Like one of those things that you create that made people go "Oh yeah, that's Aiko written all over it." It's not to say people have cliches attached to them; just tropes, and it's okay to have them.

1. Oh, I was gonna say 'There hasn't really been anything I've dealt with here that's frustrated me' but then I remember, quite some years back when I was still on Aikoland's original continuity, I'd made an election thread for this nation and some RP group got mad at me because I ignored the poll results (even though I literally said in the OP that the poll would not determine the election results). Anyways then the RP group made a thread on if they should vote to condemn me for 'rigging my election' and they seriously had the gall to claim that they weren't actually condemning my nation, they were condemning a made-up nation that exists in their RP that just so happens to share the same name, history, etc. as Aikoland. :roll: :roll: :roll:

2. I'm happy with my current canon of Aikoland. The previous canons I've done I ended up getting bored with, but I think this one I won't since it's something I at least am enjoying writing lore about.

3. I don't really create characters, so I can't really answer this one, sorry. I know I technically have characters in the sense of 'lists of leaders' and shit, but most aren't exactly fleshed out

They're not, if only because (speaking OOC here) I have no knowledge of those languages beyond their existence, them being Romance languages, and the general location of where they're spoken. I know it makes zero sense, but I'd rather not bastardise actual languages any more than I already do with French (and I'm at least learning French IRL, so you know).

Q1) Here's a question, due to the distance between Mars and earth would you say that unique musical movements have grown on mars that has not yet reached earth and vice versa?

Q2) With 8 Official Languages, how do martians communicate efficiently with each other? Is there a language that is used more commonly than others?

Q3) This ties into the above question, I've noticed that different locations on Mars has names from different cultures. Would you say that the dominant language used varies with area or would you say that it stays relatively the same?





Q) On a scale of 1 to 10 how much do you like fishing for trout?
A) I have never fished.

Ah, yes, the September Agreement came about due to Jonathan Blinds, the Prime Minister, catching wind of a possible plot to destabilise, divide and then cause a war in the Cape of Good Hope. In a bid to dissuade such a thing, Jonathan Blinds signed an agreement with several Nations called the "September Agreement" in the wake of what was called "The September Crisis" which, aptly, happened in September.

However, the September Agreement has...fallen apart slightly, evident in the lack of Signatory (that's what the member nations are called) intervention and assistance towards the Aerlanican's war against the Primaeri. In effect, making it a failure.

Howdy! Hope you'll pardon me coming back with more questions.

1. Why the change from "The Mother loves the children of Ghes" to "The Mother loves the scions of Ghes?" (emphasis added)
2. Do you have ideas for more myths beyond the Lay of Kauvighn, or does that one suffice for your purposes?
3. Do you find your cloud images in a particular place? They are very pretty!
4. Do you have a favorite candy? If so, what is it?

1) Yeah, for convenience. Instead of putting them with their respective puppet factbook dictionary and most likely forget completely about them, it's easier to keep an eye on them whenever I decide to add anything new (which I haven't for a long time anyway :p )
2) Any place, hmm, very tough question, I think I would choose seeing Mount Vesuvius from the Bay of Naples

1) To avoid "Mother loves children hehe" jokes. Now that I think about it that was a stupid choice, narratively considering things.
2) Yeah, there are a few; Kauvighn was the most important and earliest established to get down on paper, but there's at least one other sketched out and others past that that need to be made.
3) Mostly just Google Images, honestly; it takes some trawling, but if you look up things like cloud wallpapers or panoramas you can generally find what you need.
4) Oo! Eh... probably licorice, if that counts as a candy. Licorice sticks are just fun to mess around with, you know?

So, because I'm an unoriginal dingus and choose not to ask about your honestly pretty interesting alternate history, what's the cultural impact of the Nekos like for the rest of the world where they're not native? Is there a cultural fangroup, is it treated more as just another minority, or what?


Sorry for the late reply.
I haven't thought of it's present-day implications entirely, tbh. The only other place with nekomimi is Japan, is an isolationist totalitarian hell-scape similar to a right-wing North Korea led by the Kodoha Faction. LP would definitely be a noticeable country with a decent film industry and a noticeable diaspora around Spain and Western Europe, but LP's soft power would be less than that of the UK or France in this setting and it's at the end of the 1960s, so there's not gonna be internet or noticeable fanbases for decades to come. Considering they've been sailing around since the 1st Century BC, Europeans are a bit familiarized with the Tohorinese of the Palmeran Isles and are generally regarded as just another minority around Spain and Germany.

Some gendered stereotypes exist as do other ideas based on occupations readily at hand for the minority: men are often caricaturized as sailors and women were seen as maids for rich people and high-class courtesans...or clowns and barkers.

I did think of more historical consequences though:
1)Religious: Late-Medieval and Early Modern (16th-17th Century) scholars assumed they were one of the lost 10 Tribes of Israel, they sometimes used teratology to explain that these people were "cursed" with animal-esque features and inferior to Europeans because of it; think of it as something akin to the "Curse of Ham" argument that sprung up around Medieval serfs and (later on) black slaves. But Spanish policy-makers and the Catholic clergy nonetheless considered them as descendants of Adam, with human souls and worthy of conversion and salvation.

Some radical Evangelicals still buy the 10 Tribes of Israel idea and Renaissance-era Jewish occultists considered the nekomimi to be descendants of Adam and his demonic ex-wife, Lilith.

2) Historical Demographics: I accidentally killed Afro-Caribbean culture because Tohorin's/Las Palmeras' existence axed a lot of the Atlantic Slave Trade and a 16th-18th Century game centered around cash crops. Spanish monopoly meant their rivals invested in sugar beet breeding a century early and made the region economically irrelevant a century early. Sooooo there's no Calypso, no Rhumba or Mambo, no Zombie movies because voodoo doesn't exist. You can kiss Reggae, Reguetón, Ska and Dancehall goodbye too. There's no such thing as Carnival in the Caribbean either or food based on slave-food. Yes, it breaks my heart admitting it too. Replace all of the aforementioned music and dance genres with the cat-people's listening: something that vaguely resembles some kind of North African and Japanese Enka fusion.

In general, the Caribbean and former Spanish Main are a lot more racially and culturally homogenous. Divided by a "mostly white-passing" Spanish north with tiny subsets of Afro-Caribbean culture and a Tohorinese(neko)-Canarian South.

1. Why the change from "The Mother loves the children of Ghes" to "The Mother loves the scions of Ghes?" (emphasis added)
2. Do you have ideas for more myths beyond the Lay of Kauvighn, or does that one suffice for your purposes?
3. Do you find your cloud images in a particular place? They are very pretty!
4. Do you have a favorite candy? If so, what is it?


1) Was Baizou ever accosted by Japan or the US during the Cold War if it voted left during the period? Conversely, did the USSR or the KGB have fronts in local Marxist parties like they did IRL in some countries?
2) If I can ask, what part of history do you study IRL? IIRC, you're studying that right?
3) Arbitrary: I like the Intellectual Rapist. Erika Furudo. Would you ever consider using their sprite for a character or do you prefer other Umineko designs before theirs?

My question(s) is a relatively simple one.

1. What initially inspired you to make your nation?

2. What were your thoughts when you first made the nation?
Telegram me things you want me to put in the "Codex Imperialis"
The Victoran "Empire" is a FFT Interstellar Alliance/Federation with a Roman and Gothic aesthetic that is engaged in a Great Crusade against 'the Enemy'. The setting is a horrid combination of 40k and Doctor Who. No, the Empire isn't oppressively imperialist. No, the Empire isn't British nor is it's name referencing Queen Victoria.
NS Stats are for nerds. I don't use them and neither should you (if you must, use stats as an indicator of the "average Civilized World"). With that said, according to this index, the Victoran Empire is a Tier 10, Level 8, Type 9 civilization with a Power Comparator of 3.9

1. Ooh, a very interesting question! I imagine Baizou in a very curious position on all fronts. On the one hand, Baizou's postwar government adopted the Americans' proposed constitutional amendments quite readily in its now longstanding tradition of "just going with it" whenever someone with more guns shows up. So Baizou always had that as a diplomatic shield: our politics are simply what you Americans made them to be. The split between the early-occupation New Dealers and the Cold War-era conservatives is surprisingly sharp. In our real-life timeline, MacArthur decriminalized leftist parties in Japan because they were the obvious alternative to the ultranationalists! And the early-occupation staff were "New Dealers," as some historians have termed them, who advocated the left-ish "New Deal/social liberalism" in the rebuilding of Japanese society. It was later that the ultranationalists started to get back into politics, after a conservative reaction and the onset of the Cold War—but for Baizou, the Americans were gone by then! Of course, just because it is canon that Americans left a left-ish political thumbprint on Baizou doesn't necessarily mean the United States accepts its own role in Baizou's non-conservatism. I don't think it would've risen above the level of diplomatic grief and strong words, especially as Baizou began to play important roles in economics and technological innovation, but "accosted" does seem like a fair characterization. But as far as military enterprises went, the US had so many other fronts and proxy conflicts, it wasn't about to start something in Baizou. Their non-alignment was annoying, but it was tolerable.

As for Japan, I imagine an unusual relationship. Perhaps it's over-rosy, but I think Baizou and Japan's mutual sense of kinship, the terror of the nuclear bombs, and the sense that the US was not forthright about what the nuclear bombs were would all combine to create an unexpected postwar truce between Japan and Baizou. While the conservative governments in Japan might not be fond of Baizou's more left-ish approach to social norms and political thought, Baizou's willingness to criticize nuclear armament—and therefore be a former wartime colony that in the postwar now borderline-stood up for Japan—was enough for Japanese politicians to hold their tongues.

(Baizou's perhaps overzealousness in victim-ifying Japan as a victim of nuclear bombings is treated briefly in Princess Yuu's White Elephants and White Lies book about Pacific War public memory in Baizou. While recognizing the terribleness of nuclear weapons, Princess Yuu has suggested that in focusing on what was done to Japan, Baizona were perhaps too quick to forget what Japan had done—which in turn conveniently made it easy to downplay how Baizou had, albeit indirectly, helped Japan to do it as a slightly-more-cooperative-than-most colony.)

As for the USSR and PRC! I'm... hm, I'm not sure I know enough Cold War history to make a decision on that front. Hm... I want to leeean no? Because in the postwar realignment, the Marxist Party transitioned itself from revolutionaries to reformists, so the kind of communisms I figure the USSR and PRC would front wouldn't quite fit in, even though the Baizoan Marxists insisted that they maintained a sense of internationalist spirt—they just, were going to take things more slowly and be a little more conciliatory to the newly-popular progressive Labors. The revolutionary Socialists did form as a reaction to that, but not right away, so I'm not sure how they'd fit into USSR and PRC fronts. But it may be that I just don't know enough about USSR and PRC involvements in overseas leftist politics to picture how that'd play out in Baizou. ^^;

2. I keep hesitating to specialize topically because I'm interested in too many things, ahahah. ^^; While it's not a topical specialty, I've for awhile been really keenly focusing on public history as a subdisciplinary focus. That is to say, history outside academia, and my interest is especially in museum work!

But let it not be said that I don't also have topical interests. There's just too much stuff I want to study, ahahah. I've dabbled in East Asian history, and I'm personally interested in WWII, the postwar, and public memory of both in Japan. I've also lately put a lot of time into Western American history, particularly gender, religion, and race in the Intermountain West. But even there, I keep splitting myself between centuries and subregions... ^^;

3. Ah, I'm afraid Furudo's sprites probably won't show up in Baizou's cast. I think her design is a little too extravagant for Baizou's aesthetics. Sorry!

1) Do you have plans on expanding Sayuri's story? There are hints that she's a sandwich short of a picnic (not understanding feelings), but are there other motives or reasons that she's the way she is?
2) What role do the vampires and magical creatures (that Sayuri sacrifices people to) have?


Ciao, Palmeras! Hope you're doing fine recently.

1. Yes, though it's not exactly a priority. When I created Sayuri, I wanted her to be a more morally ambiguous character pushed into poor decisions by those around her in government, showing that even the best of intentions can be distorted in a bad system. But I'm more interested in finishing this nation, Reverberating Days, and my RPs (including one to be started soon).
2. Honestly, they're more of a symbolic metaphor for how the invisible hand of the market usually leads to situations where commoners are sacrificed for the economy. But that was before the US's response to Covid showed that reality can be worse than fiction sometimes, so I might change it.

How do human soldiers turn into large, thin, charcoal coloured arachnoid-like centaur creatures with ten legs, 2 small arms and some illuminating, corrosive, purple substance coming out of the chest, eyes and saliva + some other abilities?
