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.

"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.

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
