1. “All Hail GOD, King and Country”
This motto was chose first to symbolize the independence and the creation of The Chris Empire. Showing that the cause for independence is for the Almighty God, the leadership of the King and for the good of the Country. GOD is in all caps and is first said to signify the major religion in The Chris Empire

2. “United for God, Peace and Country”
This motto kept the same words but changed “All Hail” to United. United signifying that the well-established nation of The Chris Empire and its people are united for these three causes.

3. “United by Faith, Peace and Country”
This motto is the current motto of Christos. It is similar to the previous motto but God was changed to Faith to encompass all the faiths in Christos and their unity to preserving their home of Christos and Peace between each different faith.

The original motto was Animus in consulendo liber (meaning A mind unfettered in deliberation), and was the motto of the Transitional Federal Government until the creation of Carena in 2087, in which the motto Novus ordo seclorum (meaning New order of the ages) was adopted)

By Faith For Faith
First documented motto of the country. It was made popular by the third crusade that saw many men volunteer to sail to Europe and then the Middle East on behalf of Christendom.

Togeria is King; 1660-1812
The official state motto for over a century. It was designed to breed patriotism from the people as well as strike fear into the enemies of Togeria. It roughly meant that as long as Togeria stood as a nation all around the world were subject to its reign and power

Ultra Deus:1812-present
Taking inspiration from the Spanish motto "Plus Ultra", "Ultra Deus" means Beyond God, and was adopted following the Togerian revolution. It was meant to be a rallying call against the religious authority and conservatism that had kept the peasants in the county down. Now it means to beyond any barrier for progress.

1. No Wave Doesn't Hit Our Coasts - 1715-1845
As in, no matter where a wave goes, it will always reach land owned by Rhodevus.

2. Victory in Defeat - 1845-1890
Rhodevus will still stand strong even amidst loss of land and control over its own territory

3. Until Victory - 1890-present
Comes from a speech from the first king of Rhodevus in 1845, declaring that no matter what happens in the country, we will stand together, united until our final victory. This 'victory' that the king speaks of most likely represents military success, but has since gone to speak about excellence in everything from economics and trade, to culture.

This motto represents the desire for every Starling to achieve their goals and have their talents reach them to places farther than the planet.

- "Science and Thought" (1914 - 1934)
The motto changed to this when a new High Chancellor was elected that was out of the family circle of the founders of Starlaris. This motto represents the policies the new High Chancellor focused on which is science, the arts and other liberal things.

- "Think Beyond" (1934 - present)
The motto was changed to this with the next elected High Chancellor. This motto is a mixture of the 2 previous mottos and it means to think beyond and strive for a better world through science and technology.

"Proudly Urban, Unashamedly Rural" has been the only official motto of Tinhampton. If you're wondering how it survived the Communist takeover of 1958, that's because it didn't - it was only promulgated as the motto in 1972.

Postby Bayaria » Fri Jul 28, 2017 12:41 am

1. YKBNV/HBROW - 1524 - 1781
YKBNV, or Его кровь бежит в наших водах (His Blood Runs in Our Waters), was the oldest recorded motto of the Tsardom of Kaninov, which ruled Bayaria from 1524 until 1781.

2. Tanrı en Büyüktür (God is the Greatest) - 1751 - 1758, 1918
Motto of the Short-lived first and second Amirates of Bayaria. The First Amirate was formed by an anti-Kanin Imam named Ali Karim Ramilov, who would be known as Arshtemen (Guide), A national hero in Bayaria. He led a revolt for 7 years of grueling combat with the Kanin Tsardom until he was captured, paraded around, and executed in front of the Tsar in 1758. The Second Amirate was formed in an attempt by Islamic Clergy to declare independence from Russia after the collapse of the Russian Empire and to regain the Clergy's former control over Bayaria. It only lasted 2 months before being overthrown by Timer Basbah's Bolsheviks.

3. Tanriye Bizim (God With Us) - 1781 -1918
Motto of the Russian Empire (in Bayari), which ruled over Bayaria during this time.

4. Bütü ülkelere işçilera, birleşis! (Workers of the World, Unite!) - 1918 - 2014
Motto of the Bayarian Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic of the USSR and the Bayarian Autonomous Socialist Oblast of the Kanin Worker's Republic

5. Sayıf Sokutma Cüçlün Olmayakac Artek (The Weak Shall no Longer Suffer the Will of the Strong) - 2014 - 2015 (Official), 2015 - 2017 (Unofficial)
Motto of the Federal Oblast of Bayaria within the Federal Democratic Republic of Kaninov. The motto was in reference to 300 years of Kanin and Russian oppression and discrimination against Bayars (as Bayars are both Tatars and Muslims, and seems in retrospect to be a telltale sign that Bayaria was going to Revolt. It remains a popular Unofficial motto today, and stands as the "mission statement" of the new Bayarian state

6. Borluk, Asglulik, Bogumsulık! (Unity, Freedom, Independence!)
The current National Motto of Bayaria, outlining the three tenants of Bayarian Statehood described in the Bayarian Constitution
Unity: Absence of Ethnic and Religious Prejudice (Of which Bayars* have suffered much)
Freedom: Secular Government, Representative Democracy
Independence: Building a non-Subordinate Bayaria, by Bayarians* and for Bayarians

* = "Bayar" refers to ethnic Bayars. "Bayarian" refers to citizens of Bayaria, regardless of ethnicity

Postby Valgora » Sat Sep 16, 2017 12:29 pm

Up until 1783, Valgora never had a motto.

In 1783, the (closest thing to a) government decided that Valgora should have a national motto.

1783 - 1795
Valgora Fyrir - For Valgora

1795 - 1802
Landið Jäätä ja Snø - The Land of Ice and Snow

1802 - 1829
Voi Luna Opåstaa Meitä - May Luna Guide Us

1829 is the year Valgora was forced into a territory of the New Equestrian Empire. The Imperial government decided it was time for a new motto.

1830 - 1900
Praise the Holy Empress

1900 - 1932
For the Holy Empire

During this time, many Valgorans would create their own unofficial mottos:
Keisarinna er Helvítis Skoffin - The Empress is a Damned Skoffin
Keisarinna er Helvítis Kunta - The Empress is a Cunt
Þvinguð til fyrir Imperiumiin - Forced to for the Empire

1932 is the year that the Valgoran Republican Army defeated the Empire forcing it out of Valgora.

1933 - 1956
Vihdoin Frjáls - Free at Last

1956 - 1974
Voi Luna Opåstaa Meitä - May Luna Guide Us

1974 - 2023
Omistettu Vapauden Puolesta - Dedicated to Freedom

2023 is the year the Valgoran Revolutionary Army overthrew the government and turned Valgora socialist.

2023 - Present
Kommúnismi er Galdur - Communism is Magic
To native speakers of Icelandic, Finnish, and Norwegian: I am sorry for my bastardization of y'all's languages.
Valgora is Nordic

We had no national motto from our nation's founding in 1587 until 1603, although 'Equality for All' was widely considered the unofficial motto of the Gandoor Grand Council.

1603 - 1902
For the Grace of God and Nzard
This motto was adopted upon the establishment of the Nzardom of Gandoor at the start of the 17th century. Following the dissolution of the Gandoorese monarchy in 1902 due to the Gandoor Revolution, Gandoor would have no national motto until the establishment of the Democratic Republic of Gandoor.

1904 - Present
Liberty, Democracy, Socialism'
This became the motto of the Democratic Republic of Gandoor upon its establishment on 12 October 1904. The motto is intended to represent the goals of the Gandoor Revolution, the establishment of a democratic socialist state which guarantees freedom and liberty for all who reside within it.

Before gaining independence in December 2008, Zitravgra's motto was "City of Saint Vasily, Favorite of Providence". Of course, the new socialist party disagreed on its religious nature.

Update: the motto changed on 12 October 2017 from "Citizens of the Wasteland Unite" to "We, The Favorite of Providence, Shall Not Fall".

AEIOU is one of the oldest mottos, currently in use, in the world dating back to the late 15th century. It is the motto of the Habsburg monarchy.
There are some unofficial mottos for the nation such as "indivisibiliter ac inseparabiliter" (Indivisible and Inseparable) and "Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit" (Unity and Justice and Freedom).
