We speak Gothic, and use two letters not present in the standard Latin alphabet: the thorn, or þiuþ (Þ þ), and the hwair, or ƕair (Ƕ ƕ).

The Yannian language uses a variant of runic script know locally as Vuþarc:

  • The symbols between square brackets are IPA.
  • The transliteration is the official transliteration used by Yannian government agencies.
  • is pronounced as [f] at the end of a word, and as [v] elsewhere.
    When pronounced the other way, a low dot is added to the rune.
  • y is the stressed version of ë.
Yannia's nation page contains an error. The population should be in millions, not in billions.

In Apiatica, two "writing" systems exist.

The first, used on most official and government documents, uses a form of "character" writing system similar to Chinese or Japanese, but significantly more simplified: Rather than several complex, interweaving, curved lines, this system almost entirely utilizes straight, right-angled lines that usually form quadrilaterals of varying shapes and sizes. The markings are usually made with blue or purple ink from the indigo flower, though sometimes other lighter colors are substituted where scarcity of the flower prevails. It can takes administrative clerks years to learn this system of reading, let alone writing, and the imperial administration is buckling under the weight of illiterate, unqualified bureaucrats.

The second form of "writing" is controversial as a form of it, since, rather than any noticeable, physical markings, it involves apian pheromones. The pheromone-based "writing" system is used in everyday newspapers, books, signs, and other public buildings that the average bee would need to interact with on a daily basis. In cases where it's difficult to put pheromone signatures, such as shop signs, pictograms are used instead. While the first system of writing is used by less than 1% of the population, virtually every bee can understand pheromones put down on a piece of paper, and rubbing ones body and signing an 'X' is the common way of making an employment contract (usually in the first system of writing). Pictograms help otherwise, but these are not considered a writing system much.

Did you know that the ampersand was once the twenty seventh letter of the alphabet? It still is, in TurtleShroom. :)
The © ® ™ symbols are taught as well.






Before the nineteenth century, TurtleShroom used both Cyrillic (Russian and Ukranian) and Latin letters (English). It took nearly a century to phase Russian out of the populace for ease of speaking to turtles and mushrooms, which formed English sounds better. The farther back one goes, the more Cyrillic replaces Latin.

Latin, Cyrillic, Arabic, Devanagari, Hanzi/Kanji/Hanja, Kana, Hangul, Hebrew, Greek, Georgian, Armenian, Thai...fuck it, almost all writing systems in the world are used among the Children of Gaea, although Latin is generally used as a common script with English as the language.

Rejistania uses its own alphabet, as well as some minority writing systems. And cyrillic. Some kireshi (offspring of English speaking refugees) also write their language still in latin characters but with a very native orthography, so juu ken iisi khetmiin.

The DRH uses (outside of the normal latin alphabet) The alphabet of Apayazz.

The character is on the left. The approximate pronunciation is on the right.

As an ethnic Telugu nation-state, the People's Republic of Neo Telangana uses the Telugu script in all official communication. Telugu script is the only script with official status in Neo Telangana.

An example of our script can be seen in our primary banner, which contains the atheist slogan "There is No God" in Telugu script.

My nation reflects my actual political views, and it has absolutely nothing to do with steampunk.

I use red to indicate what I LIKE, and green to indicate what I DON'T LIKE. Screw your traditional color roles.

In Hyd Gohin we use two writing systems primarily. There is another Runic-based one that is common for notation(but its nothing official, so it shan't be listed)

The is the Latin alphabet for English and Dzanbazpagd. It is essentially the English alphabet, but when used for Dzanbazpagd the letter "c" is not used.

The primary alphabet is the Gibdzgrip(or "Law Script") which is used in just about any circumstance but is the only script officially used in the Houses Of Deliberation for either English or Dzanbazpagd. It, like Latin, is written left to right.

The script is listed below with their English Latin equivalents.
