What have you learnt after reading the AN’s factbooks? III

Postby Sophia in England » Tue May 04, 2021 11:18 am

As title says, what have you learned after reading the AN's factbooks?
United Communal Burrow Republics wrote:I learned that despite Mars possessing fertile land post it's terraforming, the citizens of Mars obtain their food via vertical farming. Now I could go over my personal reasons involving science why I think this is unrealistic, but this is a learning thread, not a teaching thread. I also found out that their meat products come from a similarly artificial origin, that being lab meats. It's a very interesting way to decide to feed your nation, and I find it very fascinating!

After reading UCB's factbooks, I learned that the origin planet of their species, Atis, was likely named from their Rulzea's protolanguage meaning "land" or "home". Atis is the fourth planet from their system's star, and enjoys the distinction of being a home and safe harbour for multicellular life. Interestingly enough, their years, months, and days are all in a metric style system.

The first broadcasts were in November 1990 but they were very short.
The Jamesian Republic is an allegory for the United States of America. It has 48 states like the USA did from 1912-1959 and the Stars and Stripes mean the same thing like they do in Real Life.
By now the last coronavirus patient in the world has been released. The Shiwanese government announced it has cause to believe that the coronavirus may have been man made. They also said that someone working for an anarchist terrorist group could have been involved in the leak.

That their military has a budget of 1.243 billion (I'm assuming) Vente, and has 212 million total personnel. This leaves a total budget per soldier of just under 6 Vente. I hope you can get a lot more for that amount than you can $6! Can't imagine their soldiers are particularly well equipped, otherwise.

Mars' colonisation began with private corporations, and though it's not written explicitly one might infer those companies were part of the reason for Mars' illegal declaration of independence from Earth, as those companies flourished after they no longer had to abide by the UN's laws and regulations.

They don't view states that don't hold the Metric System as 'civilised'. On a more serious note, it can be stated that corporal punishment is rare in the Girton College, which is a bit weird given the time period that this story happens in.

Warsaw Pact still exicts in this universe with Soviet Union being kicked out of it in 2002 (which is really epic), and with some additional countries, be it pretty understandable Yugoslavia and Libya or interesting additions like Spain, Austria and Greece.
And Palestine is a legit country here, which is also a part of Warsaw Pact.

While their HDI is pretty high, their exchange rate to USD is only .73 USD for a dollar. This is actually a very interesting route, because a lower-than-US currency implies that the currency is more valuable than the USD, which typically only happens in nations with a comparative situation to the US or Middle Eastern Oil Baronies. Realistic? Given Brazil's technological/industrial prowess, I can still imagine it. But, it still interests me.

The PAS' military force has an odd doctrine in the sense that it is very hands-off when it comes to giving independence to corps-sized formations and their officers; on the other hand, it's infantry heavy Guerilla-focused forces are also armed with technologically advanced weapons.

The most interesting and most inventive part of their information was hidden in one of the overview parahraphs.

That their people are not so much multi-dimensional, but three human dimensions in mutiple universal dimensions.

It is a concept that reminds me of the finer disputes of trinitarian theology.

And then there is the concept of timelines relating to these mutiple universal dimensions, which means that one and the same individual may be part of two (incompatible?) histories, and thus have two (incompatible?) personal histories as part of their development.

This is where Berkeley and Derrida rear their heads - for the concept of intrasmittable individual interpretation as the only certain truth is the only model I would know to explain such a fascinating state of being.

You have. They are THE BEST I have ever read.

They have humor, they feel almost like a browser game from the late 1990-ies, and the theme is pretty inventive too. It stimulates the reader's imagination.

Maybe everybody feels a bit daunted - your factbooks are after all "a tough act to follow" - and you have fallen foul of your own success?

(I for one, don't even have factbooks yet, and reading yours I was wondering: will I even bother to try and compete with that?)
