Because the Lietuvan Hellenic Script has 26 unique non-capital letters, it is able to retain the punctuation and number layout of the English keyboard. The difference of phonology means that the replacement isn't a phonetic replacement of QUERTY, but it is pretty close.


In capital, that is:


Furthermore, there is a keyboard for Latinized Lietuvan, It replaces the top row of numbers with various diacritic-bearing letters.

Cosnicu uses two ypes of keyboards, one for a normal alphabet and one for shiveki (Cosnicu's native written language). The keyboards have more or less the same organization in terms of what each letter is used for, but vary in a few major differences (Keypads written in shuveki, for example, have either a four by four grid, or four number keys and a seperate shift key specifically for the subbase.)
"that nation would probably be violent" (looks at cosnicu's pacisivism score)
"that nation is right wing" (looks at Cosnicu's form of governance)
"that nation looks like its straight out of a comic book" (Olkay. this one is technichally right, but i didnt recognize it at first)
"that nation is a corrupt dictatorship" (looks at Cosnicu's political freedom and integrity scores)
"that nation is scientifically advanced" (finally)

In the Democratic Republic, the QWERTY-based US-International layout is the dominant keyboard layout used. This layout is officially used for English and Japanese, with the romaji input mode being exclusively used to type Japanese text; kana input mode is not utilized in Gandoor.

The JCUKEN (ЙЦУКЕН) layout is officially used for Russian in Russian-speaking regions of our nation; however it's actual usage is fairly rare, with most Russian speakers using the same US-International layout and inputting Russian phonetically.

Nacrad uses predominantly the QWERTY keyboard. For Chinese input, many Nacradians use a method in which they input the transliteration and sometimes the tone of the word they are to type and choose the appropriate character, or use a logographic method such as derivations of the Chong-Kit method (as pronounced in Cantonese), or by inputting its strokes.

We use a latin keyboard similar to Czech layout. The difference being that the keys all have spaces between them, so that people can't accidentaly press more then one key with one hoof. F1-F12 key don't exist with few others like Windows key and scroll lock. The keyboard itself is arranged in a semi circle instead of a rectangle.

The Slyakanian keyboard layout is very similar to the Russian layout. The difference is that the Russian ъ (hard sign) is replaced by an ’ (apostrophe).

Since Pirusavia use two systems of writing, Cyrillic and Latin, there are two kinds of keyboard layouts.

The Latin layout based on the QWERTZ keyboard. The special letters (š, ž, č, ḡ, n̄) are placed on the keyboard numbers (these buttons above the letters) and could be typed using a special button below the shift button (in typewriters) or by combining Alt+Gr with numbers (computer keyboard). There are also dead key typewriters that automatically assigns diacritics when typing two combinations of letters (e.g. sh becomes š, zh becomes ž, and so on).

The Cyrillic keyboard, on the other hand, is modeled after the QWERTY keyboard. It begins with the letters Ә, Ш, Р, Т, Ы, and colloquially referred as the "Esherty" keyboard from these letters.

Keyboard layout

Postby Chadtonia » Tue Jan 18, 2022 7:58 pm

The traditional keyboard layout is a square layout:

HhMmNnTtZzSsUu 3 8
VvWwXxYy [space] 4 9
! ? . " , * - ( ) [ ] @ & # 5 0
[Yes] [No] [Please]

Capital letters and lowercase letters are on the same key, and one must hit shift prior to each time a capital letter, with the exception of gG where the reverse is true, is used.

For example we typed the first word of tge above sentence thusly,

Kong Qingdong, in his infinite wisdom, has developed a superior keyboard layout wherein every key is labeled "Kong", "Qingdong", "Kong Qingdong", and the roman letters that make up the holy name "Kong Qingdong". Unfortunately, this has resulted in unpopular sales for keyboards within the Cultured Imperial Utopia, and people tend to resort to speech to text voice keyboards, or otherwise people tapping on keys repeatedly for the display to switch K to L, M, N and other letters (same with other keys). The massive popularity of voice keyboards was described by the Omnibenevolent One as "a brilliant step forward technologically" and "a way to move beyond archaic keyboards." The Cultured Imperial Utopia firmly believes that Kong Qingdong's foresight is unquestionable and that this perspective will lead the Utopia to an even more Golden Age while failure to accept this opinion will result in the penalty of death!

TurtleShroomian keyboards use the traditional QWERTYUIOP format of nineteenth century typewriters. There are one hundred four keys on a TurtleShroomian keyboard. There are three notable additions that involve the SHIFT key in the same way the numbers are used. SHIFT-R produces "®", SHIFT-C produces "©", and SHIFT-T produces "".

TurtleShroomian English is written in the Latin alphabet. The TurtleShroomian alphabet has twenty-seven letters because it retains the ampersand ( & ) as the twenty-seventh letter. TS used Cyrillic alongside Latin letters until 1800 AD.

Keyboards in Russian, Tsao, Yue, Classical Mongolian, and Sino-Japanese also exist, but there are no universal manufacturing standards for any of these except Russian.
