Wiki-style

If you don't know how you want to format your factbook, wiki-style ones are definitely an option. If you're not familiar with the term usage, I suggest you check out a Wikipedia page. These pages typically contain an introduction, a sidebar on the right, a table of contents sidebar on the left, and several different sections throughout. Overall, making for a professional looking factbook.

Now, what's the point of a professional looking factbook? Well, for one, it actually makes it kinda exciting to read, and makes the reader impressed by the effort the author went through to get it done. Additionally, an organized factbook allows you to add more information into your factbooks, not stopping at one single title, but rather having several sub-sections under one.

Military Conflict Template

I don’t typically venture into my nation’s military, but someone mentioned an an armed conflict factbook, and creating a template for it was tempting. I, of course, didn’t think about it all by myself. I took a ton of inspiration from Wikipedia, specifically “the Battle of the Bulge”, as I was just reading that one.

As for the elements of this template, it has an easily customizable sidebar, which features the battle's quick facts, such as location and date. It also has a contents sidebar, which already has anchors, so all you need to do is edit the titles to your convenience. The template also has an accompanying sampler, which you could use to see how it would look like all laid out, or slightly customized.


Playfair

This is a style I’ve been playing around with a bit, and it utilizes the fonts Playfair Display (for headers), Futura (for sidebars; all in capital letters), and Georgia (for the body). It’s a modern-style factbook, which would have the usual format for any factbook, except it uses a different font, which together, has a nice aesthetic appeal.

Legislation Template

Admittedly, I’m not too good at explaining the bits on why X must be here, and why Y should only be in the bottom, but I think this post by Cayucas sums things up pretty well. Once you understand the things outlined in that post, you’re free to go and edit the template to your pleasure. The template includes a pre-made header, with the actual law being up to you to add in. Feel free to request edits to make it easier to add in images, sidebars, or anything else you’d like to see in this factbook, as well as do it yourself.

Some sort of anarchist, maybe. No, Ancap does not count.
