Culture Shock the Above Nation(Mk 4)

Postby New Polypontia » Tue May 19, 2015 8:16 am

(The first was locked some time ago, and I couldn't find a second one and the third reached 500 pages! So, here it is!)

Basically, post an interesting tidbit about your nation's culture (but this can include military, legislative, or any other interesting facts) that you think the nation above would find a bit shocking. (I would recommend skimming through factbooks or looking for previous posts on this thread for the best possible shock!)

Example:

Nation 1: "Our people hate homosexuals, and stone them to death!"
Nation 2: "We are a country full of lesbians."
Nation 3: "We have perfected wormhole technology."
Nation 4: "A Social Democrat won our last election for president."
Nation 5: "A popular pastime in our nation is paying strippers to kick us in the gut and tell us we don't matter."

And so on...

Since I have nothing to shock, I get to wait.
We are a Class K20 civilization. We are a traditionalist monarchy with a very static, expansive caste system. Also, we have Post-WW1 era technology with blood magic and a few dragons. All events prior to September 16,2015 are now only semi-canonical.

Plutocratic Evil Empire™ situated in a post-apocalyptic Decopunk North America. Extreme PMT, yet socially stuck in the interwar/immediate post-war era, with Jazz music and flapper culture alongside nanotechnology and Martian colonies. Tier I power of the Frencoverse.
