In their universe, the Ba'athist revolution utterly fails in Syria. Judea and Persia occupy the country under a UN mandate. I can't imagine a worse hell than being occupied by the same country that you've been vowing to destroy for years. The shame, the humiliation, the pain...

I learned that apparently a 6 month old baby can run for office according to the Constitution...

The 1986 constitution of the Commonwealth of Hintuwan mandates that elections should be held for government officials at the national, provincial, and local levels. The constitution guarantees that any citizen of the Commonwealth may file candidacy for such positions if they so choose - there is no age limit, nor restrictions based on race or sexual orientation. All members of the national legislature, the Kapulungang Bayan (lit. "Assembly of the Nation"), are directly elected by the people of each province.


Additionally, I learned that the 1955 Restoration of Titles Act violates royal family policy as Hintuwan's head of state, known as the Lakan (or Dayang if female), is chosen from the Luntian Royal Family and serves as monarch for life. If they're chosen, then how is it hereditary? The act said it was the eldest, but this says you may choose, how odd.

Are you referring to the pseudo-democratic "Kepulungan" system? That was a temporary thing that was disbanded during the colonial era lmao.

The confiscation of the Kesampuhan's feudal possessions and the dismantlement of the Kepulungan system in 1772 led to the royal clans' gradual spiral into obscurity and the Hintuwani archipelago became a commercial holding of the Pordhesian Western Isles Company for 134 years.


For all intents and purposes Hintuwan is a hereditary constitutional monarchy. Yes, sometimes the Lakan may choose one of his children other than the eldest to become heir apparent but this is rare. And in any case that still makes it hereditary because it's still within the family.

Lilguay's economy primarily operates along non-capitalist lines, combining state planning in heavy industries with worker-owned enterprises operating within a market system. However, it also maintains 'special capitalism zones' in three port cities where more traditional privately owned enterprises are allowed to operate, albeit with some stipulations regarding union involvement.

As the last Ásatrú nation, The Kingdom of Gjøtland fights with the favor of the Norse gods, defending against her aggressive neighbors with impunity.

In their demographics, they count Latin Americans as one unified group that is distinctly not white nor multiracial, which is honestly weird for any kind of demographic policy that isn't some variation of "one drop policy". With that in mind, 63% of Lilguay is Mestizo (do we count German-English multiethnics as Mestizo? No?) while 10% are white, 9% are Black, 6% hail from Asia or the Pacific Islands (how do you group all of them together), 6% are as said above Latin American and the final 6% are indigenous. One other thing, unlike the ethnic composition which (other than the Latin-American thing) sounds very much like your average Latin American country, religious-wise Lilguay is weird because while there's clearly some evidence of colonialism, the majority religion is Amorprana and every Abrahamic faith is just bumped together as one very small minority.

I appreciate the feedback, I am going to need to modify some of the categories, add a few more categories, and change some of the percentages. I also really need to get started on the history, which will explain why there was minimal colonialism and how even despite that Amorprana remained the dominant religion in Lilguay (though maybe 77% is too high).

Experina is the result of two nations uniting, then falling into civil strife, and then a dictatorship taking place promising freedom (?). That's a hell of a ride

AN: Caleshans are highly efficient peoples. The State will take advantage of just about anything to exert control over the people it rules, including social media. This efficiency is also translated to the daily life of the average Caleshan, who aim to optimize every action they do in every day both as a way to improve themselves and compete with other Caleshans. This also means they highly repress themselves, with angry Caleshans opting to become isolated and reserved instead of being, well... angry.

Brazil was a literal ideological cesspit during the cold war with Integralists, Monarchist, Japanese nationalists and somehow coalitions formed between the conservatives and liberals, ending in a military coup in 1964, which started a civil war because nobody liked the military which ended when democracy was reestablished in 1979.

Apanalua has an incredible level of geographic diversity. While it’s primarily made up of tropical rainforest, each state in the union has its own specific conditions that create different biomes within them. From the fertile, forested rivers of Northern and Southern Zhengguo to the Kaulike mountain ranges, the level of biological diversity within this nation is astounding.

Hintuwan is technically ruled by a monarchy, but for all intents and purposes, is a republic. The 1955 Restoration of Titles Act reinstated this monarchy soon after the Commonwealth had been formed, showing the world that Hintuwan was, once again, a united nation.
