I mean... I am all for development as a whole, but goodness gracious, everything about your nation is terrifying! >< Maybe that is the thing you are going for, and I'm sure that there are benefits and advancements that happened, but at the cost of so many atrocities.




Recently, Clarissa has shared with the Valentians one of her personal files, which details on how much she likes or dislikes a person. Despite the fact that there are people who wanted her dead, or wished for her to end in some painful manner, Clarissa remarks that she never has the same feelings for them, and instead would keep lukewarm relations, or perhaps even try to hug them.

-1 is Hostile, 0 is neutral, +1 is positive.

+1.05 to Valentijn.
+1.00 to the rest of the Valentians.
+1 to Zitragravdians.
+1 to people of Skyhooked.
+1 to Karamiko and their PM.
...
...
+0.95 to Reza Mortazavi of Persagonian Republic.
+0.94 to Sultan Arslan Siddiqui Bahadur of Arshanid Deccan.
...
...
+0.77 to Magister Andrew and his people, from The Rapture Republic.
...
...
+0.20 to Empress Alicia I of The Great Intergalactic Empire.
...
...
+0.05 to Adaeze 'the Blackheart', Imperatrix of Ambervale, from Amber Vale.
...
...
+0 has a lot of entries.
...
...
So far, there is no one that receives < 0 from Clarissa, even if there are people who wanted her dead.

Even with some of my modules such as anger and rage being taken out, my human side, i.e. my artificial neurons.... they are still around and doing their jobs.
So I should be mad at people by default, yes? But I don't feel that way. Everyone deserves forgiveness, everyone deserves a little praise even for small things!
And that's why I am always content with the people around me. No matter how much they have wronged me, or how harsh, I simply take it as phase for them.

I sincerely hope Rasputin won't be your first negative then. Clarissa is a spooky enemy to have.




The Yegla Islands are, geographically, the remains of a far larger continent that fractured and sank during a catastrophic volcanic eruption. Though the ancient civilizations that used to inhabit it are lost to time, fragments of their buildings and artifacts are often found buried on certain islands, or on the seabed.

The Federal Bureaucracy of Yegla Islands is a nation forged from a war-torn, ownerless state into a gleaming bastion of socialism, technological advancement and personal freedoms. Can be seen as a strange amalgalm of Cuba and Norway, with patently ridiculous tax rates balanced out by a plethora of government-funded amenities for its citizens. Religion is ignored, the military is powerful beyond reason, and the government manages to function despite its monstrous size. All this balances on the shoulders of an ex-revolutionary, questionably-human, mostly-benevolent dictator. Oh, and they've discovered magic a little while ago.


Yes, this nation uses NS stats. Sort of. In a general kind of way. Ignore the diversity quotas - those were a misclick.

Huh. That'd be an archaeological dig i'd love to participate in.



That is honestly so incredibly sweet that it makes my heart melt. I just love everything you've done for positivity with this community!




The Uvoanian Military is capable of raising up to 3.8 Million people out of the population for war-time duties without affecting the production, but Zkto' says that a maximum of 2.3 will be drafted, unless the situation is so incredibly desperate that not doing so will kill the Empire.

This had lead to Zkto' gaining the ironic nick-name of 'Life-Saver', despite his brutal reputation.

So that means all of them would have really shitty and poor equipment — if they even have equipment at all? I’m not particularly surprised. I’m betting you’ll just toss bodies until the enemy runs out of bullets, the typical tactic of poor, totalitarian shitholes.
Following the appointment of Ryan Blackwell as Prime Minister, tens of thousands Brytish Muslims were placed under observation, with hundreds immediately being detained and sent off to newly-created labour camps in Scotland. Prior to his appointment, roughly 20,000 Jihadists resided in the UK — each one a danger to the public.

The labour camps were places of re-education and detainment. Inmates were subject to propaganda and psychological torture specifically aimed at de-Islamising them. Many completely lost their faith and publicly rejected Islam and its doctrine of death, whilst those who remained stalwart were silenced and all evidence of their very existence was destroyed.

Edgy, needlessly cruel, and pointlessly infringing on human rights . Not very surprising, given how much your Alt version of Britain gets influenced by China and its quote-unquote efficient culture.


Following the beginning of the Civil War, the Northern so-called "Free States" were optimistic that the American Government would finally cut ties with the Confederacy's "point of origin" and finally outlaw Slavery. Between 1861 and 1863 -when it was eventually outlawed-, the Free States (primarily, New York and Boston) got more and more displeased. Militancy and consciousness was high, and it is predicted that had Lincoln not given the Emancipation Proclamation when he did, The Federal Government would have had to fight two different Secessionist States at the same time.

Definitely a good move by Lincoln, the split of the United States into three countries would have led to the prolonging of not just the war, but of slavery as well, which would have been counterproductive towards the ultimate goals of the heads in New York and Boston.


The "Red Palace", officially regarded as the ""Residence at Cape Idokopas", is a gargantuan building built during the 17th century utilizing a baroque architectural style. Before 1917, it housed the ruling family of the "House of Zolotov". After 1917, the building was converted to the official residency of the Chairperson of the Council of Democrats as well as an orphanage for between 70-90 children, who live in the building's west wing.

Aw, the orphanage is nice. Plus keeping such a historical building relevant is always preferred over building terrible looking modern buildings.


Royal maids who failed consistently used to be fired and sent to slums. However under the "Alicia Laws", a set of laws to protect workers from mistreatment, they are instead given an option. They can receive a Royal guarantee at a desk job which would pay less or they can act as "Chamber maids" for the current Empress. Many suspect that a Chamber maid actually does nothing but act as a group the monarch can socialise with. The Empress currently has 4 of these maids.

This is called "evaporation" in "Nineteen Eighty-Four".


Captain of the Stellar Fleet of the Five Nations Army, Tytus Bomba had a bad childhood. He had two hobbies: martial arts and paranormal phenomenons. His father, general Bogdan "Lufa" Bomba was an alcoholic who abused his son. He also forbade him to learning Kutarate (because "this is invention of f*cking aliens) and being interested in dinosaurs (because "they are gay and they are like Santa Claus. They aren't existing."). He also taught his son to hate and kill aliens. Bogdan, every day was taking Tytus to the shooting range, where he was spending every minute here. When Tytus's father was drunk and was sleeping, then Tytus was watching martial arts films with Sraki Chan and Kutas Lee. Then he was interesed in dinosaurs.

That is indeed a very bad childhood. That dad sounds like an ass, even if a bit of a cliche ass.


The End of the Ottoman Empire came brutally, and mercilessly, and unpredictably. A Year after the Persian-Ottoman War (though it is better known as the Anglo-Ottoman War, for good reason) began, the Ottomans were clearly losing, and losing hard. By early March 1908, the Rize-Mersin line had been all-but cemented, and everything south or east of a straight line connecting Rize in Northwestern Turkey and Mersin in South-central Turkey was under British or Persian Occupation. In addition, the Wilayat of Hejaz had declared its independence and the lack of Ottoman military had enforced that independence (The Hashemite Kingdom of Hejaz would in the next few days find itself victim of a war of aggression by the Saudi Kingdom, which failed despite the Saudi numerical superiority). What's worse, a riot in Constantinople turned into a full-scale rebellion in the entirety of the Turkish areas not yet under British or Persian occupation. The recent loss of Cyprus and Crete to the Greeks, as well as the poor Ottoman performance in the war only making things worse -both for the country's prestige and in the eyes of the people of the country. As the entirety of the Ottoman military was holding the Rize-Mersin line, trying their darn hardest not to let it push anymore west, there was no military capacity to maintain the rebellions. When the Ottoman government, in an attempt to placate the population and stop the war, surrendered to Britain and lost most of its territories in the Levant and Mesopotamia in late June, things only got worse.

Short version would be that well, empires don't last that long...

Long version, that is quite a tremendous way to go, and they went with such finesse and bang, if I say so myself. I mean, it was not just a streak of losing wars, but imagine your horror as a ruler of the Empire when you realise that the regions under you were declaring independence one by one, and along with the war thing going on, there is no way the Empire is getting back, like ever.

Even as a fictional story, I can just see the tragedy in the old Empire, grasping on for dear life as it tries its best not to lose, but fate was not on their side.




Another OOCly fact would be that if you see Clarissa's specs over the years (you can check it out here: viewtopic.php?p=34883448#p34883448), you will realise that her specs are more or less towards personal computers, cameras, video, sound specs, and anything of that sort. This was a two-fold thing from me as the creator of the character:

- I just have not got around into making the military specs yet, or on what kind of offensive and defensive assets Clarissa has. This is the tamer reason.

- The bigger reason is just my general frustration with consumer electronic products nowadays. Think of an iPhone, an Android, or any other smartphone. iPhone X, LG V40, Samsung's Galaxy S10, Huawei P30, Razer's own gaming phone, Nokia 9, and many, many more. I am just put off by the constant number of phones and advancements that has gone by and released over the years (for example, LG's V50 is already in the works right after V40 was released), as well as the fact that if there's one thing going on good with the phone, you know that there's something they might screw up.

• iPhones are pretty solid and reliable for the most parts, but the ecosystem, lack of the headphone jack, and the expensive price is something that doesn't sit well with me.
• LG V40 might be the closest I might get around to getting it as my next phone, but the camera is just... meh. I usually use my DSLR, but you know, the best camera is still the one that you will always have with you.
• Samsung... don't get me wrong, they are solid phones, but I can't freaking stand their UI, Bixby, and everything else.
• Nokia 9... camera is promising, but I don't see anything groundbreaking yet.

And that was it for the phones. Don't get me started on DSLRs, camcorders, laptops, etc... they just keep getting newer and better iterations, and I simply cannot be arsed to chase after a new product every time they get released. I mean, if my own electronics are working, why bother getting a new one just because of the better specs?

Enter Exuberant T-1000 Surveillant Clarissa Alanis Star Breya « La Amoureux Chéri » Millie Taissa Butterfly Mélody Coraline Jolijn Trini Clementine Hollie Harumi! My sources of frustrations became inspirations as I fitted her with the most insane and absurd specs that one can lay their eyes on; can see the entire EM spectrum (thermal vision to X-ray, to radio waves, and of course, the visible light), 40000 MP camera/video camera, 10,000,000 frame rate for super slow-motion videos, and all the bells and whistles that I want. Of course, I still tried my best to make it more realistic, because... I doubt 1030 megapixel photos will make sense. So it's a mixture of something that could happen in the future, coupled with some ground to reality.

In short... Instead of chasing numbers outside with phones and other electronics, I decided to give Clarissa the best set of specs one can get without going into unbelievable numbers.

And thank you for listening to this interesting fact cum tech rant from yours truly. :P

Understandable, it is important to stay connected with reality or else one can't really be immersed into the world if you go overboard. Though still you did a good job with each character especially Clarissa.


Education in the Supranational Union is derived of public and home schools, where students attend for a series of 10 consecutive years between the ages of 4 and 14, in which afterwords students may choose to enter the workforce or attend university. Students are given universal access to any school of their choice regardless of social and economic backgrounds - of course, past grades and poor social credit score can negatively impact a student's option when choosing university.

Wait, at age 14? That’s... really young, at least compared to what I know of education. I cannot say I’d approve of that system.
In the UK, children are put through 14 years of education. Starting from the age of 4 to the age of 18. Students may go to either college or further education once they are 16 years of age. Once they are 18, they are adults and may do as they wish. Most try to pursue more years of education, whilst many go into either the military or into the workforce.

Sounds like the fate of most European nations: Glory days, then slow decay, then violent collapse either from within or external. But a sad tale for Turkey nonetheless.


Valerie Worede, a Nigerian-born Neuroscientist, is one of the most renown of her field in the late 21st and early 22nd century. In Peking University's building for Psychology & Neuroscience, there's a marble statue of the faces of Sigmund Freud, Antonio Damasio, Miguel Nicolelis, Abraham Maslow, etc staring forward. In front of them is Valerie Worede holding the torch on her right hand positioned in front of her, symbolizing the past Psychologists & Neuroscientists of the past passing on their wisdom to her, who then in turn is passing on her wisdom to the students of Peking University's School of Psychology, Behavior, and Neuroscience. She was instrumental in the following discoveries post-war Earth:

1. She discovered a way to prevent Dementia, Alzheimer's, and other mental illnesses. Children can be engineered before birth to not have any defects, including Asperger & Learning Disabilities.
2. On the more horrific side, she discovered a way to 'condition' lobotomized Defectives into whatever the Technocracy see fit. The first step is to 'condition' them into a certain behavior the Technocracy wants the Defective to have, followed by slowly lobotomizing them while rearing a particular indoctrination through the use of imagery, sounds, etc through the use of mental torture to break the Defective. After lobotomization, they are then forced to do routine behavior until it became their default action, with little use of mental brain power.

The Defectives who partook in dangerous projects were 'Nerve Conditioned', or 'Nerved' to fix Earth of the environmental damage done by the United Nations, build the Great Green Wall in Africa,develop what used to be 'developing countries' through infrastructure projects, and/or mindless foot soldiers used as fodder against remnants of the United Nations and failed Fascist/Communist/Anarchist movements. They work without knowledge of tire, like organic machines, simply because they're Pro-Lifers, Anti-Vaxxers, Anti-Environmentalists, TERFs, greasy haired 'woke' right-wingers, AnComs, or any sort of Anti-Technocracy advocates.

She's also a noted psychopath, although she's completely harmless to innocent civilians, she only show her cruelty towards Defectives, making her a 'Safe Psychopath'. She'd write down Defectives' last words into a song, and throughout her career, she can be heard singing in Mezzo Soprano or humming the tunes before, during, or after experimentation on Defectives. One recorded event was when a Black Nationalist compared her to a Jew who patrol the ghetto for Nazis, the unnamed Defective screamed about her pro-abortion, pro-LGBTQ stances as well as her Sinophilia as abhorrent, calling her 'Betrayer'. His last words, that she would be singing and humming days after his death, were the following:

Your betrayal of our people is akin to the Jews supporting Nazis. The Chinese will never accept you, you are not Chinese, you are African.
She's even heard chanting "Sieg Heil" in her usual Mezzo voice not because she's a Nazi, but because it's the last words White Supremacists screamed before she 'Nerved' them.

She's described as sweet and considerate to those around her, albeit she's very open about her psychopathy. Her psychopathy only showed its dark side on the job, and only towards Defectives.

That seems entirely unlikely given the current state of neuroscience actually, and as for that second one that really makes me kinda glad that it's not possible. Good on her for being intelligent I guess.
Two states (and a third is currently debating the issue) have repealed their state income taxes. They subsist entirely on incidental taxes and other forms of revenue. In two of these states, the state government, when someone is convicted of a felony and it's bad enough to have their assets seized (say they have no family and they have one or more life sentences without parole, pretty much only given for serial rape or mass murder), among other items they raffle off any drugs the criminal had to raise money. Doesn't matter what it is, as long as it's not unsanitary.

What's the weirdest thing the force has seized since this policy's implementation?


Born January 11, 1982 in San Bernardino, California, Laurence "Larry" Oller was a successful businessman and multi-billionaire by his 27th birthday ($245 billion net worth). At the time he had already established himself as a posh and suave leader in the eyes of the media and had close relations with American politicians and other businessmen. However, his life came to a screeching halt after his wife had a miscarriage with their first child. After such a tragedy, his wife looked towards drugs in order to quell her pain; ultimately, after many overdoses and failed attempts by psychologists to help her, she died in her sleep in 2011. Feeling distraught and seeing psychologists as frauds for their failures to help his wife, he embarked on his own mission to help people, which led to the ultimate creation of the first Church of Clear Hope (Clarology) in 2014.
Founded in 2014 by Laurence Oller, the Church of Clear Hope has been a center for rehabilitation and unlocking one's path to the future for over a billion people worldwide through a process known as "Clarology". In other terms, the process of Clarology offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, Mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being.

An understandable and seemingly realistic background for such an artificial religion. It’s unfortunate they endured so much pain.
Scientology is illegal within the United Kingdom. It’s been publicly described as nonsense and all its assets in the UK have been seized and repurposed.

OOC: Good for them. No really, Scientology is terrible. It's not a religion so much as a corporate scam. I don't have anything to say ICly about it, none of my leaders would know much, if anything, about what Scientology is.

-----

Seeing as I had a news report recently that dealt with it, and it was outrageously misinterpreted, I'll give facts about alchemy rigs in my setting.

An alchemy rig is a large device with powered exoskeleton, which hooks up to the user's body in order to pump magic through the user. There are countless models of it, and countless kinds of magic used with these devices, to obtain many different effects. Common uses include performance enhancement in all kinds of fields, astral projection, and healing, but all sorts of effects are possible with the use of the right alchemy rig.

Obviously, using such a thing is dangerous, as pumping magic through one's body can lead to all kinds of unfortunate results if it goes wrong. However, the danger is greatly reduced when a skilled operator uses proper safety precautions. (I've compared it to driving an automobile, with the main difference being that alchemy rig accidents tend to be messier.) In Hell, we do our best to further decrease the danger of using an alchemy rig, including loads of regulations and safety testing for all official models, and offering classes to instruct people in the proper and safe use of an alchemy rig.

Alchemy rigs are popular with hobbyists and scientists, but also see use in military and police units, where highly trained alchemist operatives use specialized alchemy rigs to perform any number of tasks for their unit, from combat enhancement to intelligence, counterintelligence, support, or all sorts of things. Hell's best known military alchemists are the Qliphothic Alchemists.

Outside of official models, there are many homemade alchemy rigs, from jury-rigged ones built by hobbyists, to cutting-edge experimental prototypes. For obvious reasons, one can never be sure how safe these are to use.

However, though this is one of the only avenues for a human to potentially wield magic, there are no official models of alchemy rig designed for human use. This is not because such a market has been neglected, or any political reasons, but because human physiology is far more fragile than that of other sapient species, and the biology is quite different. Most other beings have bodies at least somewhat designed to handle magic flowing through it, with the alchemy rig relying upon the fact that the user has magical potential; with humans, there is no magical potential, so a rig meant for human use would be drastically different. The technology for human-use alchemy rigs is still in its infancy; such models are always homemade, and cannot remotely be described as "safe" for the use of anyone, let alone humans.

Such devices as human-use alchemy rigs are currently a hot topic in Hell, after an accident involving a cutting edge homemade rig resulted in the death of its creator and sole user, who died in hospital care after the accident caused most of the cells in her body to rapidly become cancerous and malignant.
NS Stats don't even make sense for this. Canon policies are here.

The GIE has similar tech but it is used for more official purposes.


Vilician wildlife is mostly tame, but some "hot spots" hold very hostile creatures. Some of these creatures are even humanoid and stalk on stragglers. The government has attempted to hunt down these creatures however, after cleansing the areas the creatures always come back after a few days.

It can’t be helped. Just carry a weapon, or run like hell



The first meeting between Pope Pious XXVI and the Grand Priest Tal Idani of the Eridan Siari faith, on Good Friday 2553, was a disaster. A group of extremists, convinced that the Eridan were aliens going to conquer them, attempted to kill the Grand priest, failing at the cost of the attacker’s lives. He and President Ruth Claret were also heckled on their way to the UEG Senate in Sydney by people proclaiming the president had ‘betrayed them’ and was ‘consorting with alien scum’. This went on for years until a study by the University of Edinburgh found the similarities in genes shared by Eridan and Human, stating that both races come from a direct ancestor.

It is unfortunate humanity’s xenophobia got the better of it. I am glad things were sorted out, however, though I imagine there are those who deny those findings and continue to froth at the sight of their interstellar brethren. Also, I am quite intrigued by the backstory and culture of the Eridan, especially its faith. You’ve done well in exploring the non-terran remnants of ancient humanity.
The United Nations of Earth is usually called the "Human Empire" outside of UNE-controlled space. This is due to the fact humanity remains somewhat xenophobic and prefer a system of ‘humanity only’. Though things are changing, slowly but surely, it’s quite possible this xenophobia will deepen and become something worse.

Human xenophobic imperialism is exactly the type of post-modern space society a corrupt corporate monopoly can profit from!

So how hyper aware? Because military intelligence, especially in context of strategy-building, requires adapting intelligence at the very least to be functional (if not effective)


Posting this one last time before I make up something new to work with:

The End of the Ottoman Empire came brutally, and mercilessly, and unpredictably. A Year after the Persian-Ottoman War (though it is better known as the Anglo-Ottoman War, for good reason) began, the Ottomans were clearly losing, and losing hard. By early March 1908, the Rize-Mersin line had been all-but cemented, and everything south or east of a straight line connecting Rize in Northwestern Turkey and Mersin in South-central Turkey was under British or Persian Occupation. In addition, the Wilayat of Hejaz had declared its independence and the lack of Ottoman military had enforced that independence (The Hashemite Kingdom of Hejaz would in the next few days find itself victim of a war of aggression by the Saudi Kingdom, which failed despite the Saudi numerical superiority). What's worse, a riot in Constantinople turned into a full-scale rebellion in the entirety of the Turkish areas not yet under British or Persian occupation. The recent loss of Cyprus and Crete to the Greeks, as well as the poor Ottoman performance in the war only making things worse -both for the country's prestige and in the eyes of the people of the country. As the entirety of the Ottoman military was holding the Rize-Mersin line, trying their darn hardest not to let it push anymore west, there was no military capacity to maintain the rebellions. When the Ottoman government, in an attempt to placate the population and stop the war, surrendered to Britain and lost most of its territories in the Levant and Mesopotamia in early July, things only got worse.
