National Personification of your Nation

Postby Taimansia » Sun Apr 08, 2018 4:20 pm

France has Marianne, Britain has John Bull, and America, hogging centre stage, has two - Lady Liberty and Uncle Sam.

But nations of Nationstates - what national personifications exist for your nation?

For Taimansia, the national personification is the White Lady, a young pale woman wearing white armour, carrying a white oval shield and riding a white stag. She became a national folk tale after various reports of a pale lady riding a stag were made in the Kingdom. She became the national personification after various patriotic works released made their way into the public consciousness, and she became a folk hero and tale.

We have two personifications.

One is Ame-chan. She is a young lady wearing a raincoat and holding an umbrella, and is often associated with rain because of her name. Her youth represents how young Amenria is and her rain represents the life-giving gentleness of the empire towards its people and the harsh storm of divine rage against its enemies. Her kawainess represents the beauty of both Amenria's people and its nature.

The other is the Dragon Warrior. The Dragon warrior can be depicted as either male or female. He/she wears black and white armour, with a helmet which looks like a dragon's head. Depending on the region, he/she wields different weapons.

For most people, the Confederacy is often personified as a noble soldier, bravely defending the worlds of Humanity from threats within and without. Some people view as as something similar, but more imperialist in nature.

To others, it is seen as an evil and conniving dictator with a total chokehold on all of Humanity.

The popularity of each viewpoint waxes and wanes, and there isn't a specific gender, title, or name for the personified Confederacy that wins out overall.

So-called Master of Thousand Faces is a quasi-official national personification of the Abode of Peace. Their appearance is an androgynous being with a thematically asymmetric appearance: heterochromatic irises, ornate anachronistic attire bathed in kaleidoscopic colors, patches of different skin tones. They also carry innumerable masks of various sizes, colors, and forms, hence the name. They are said to personify the "diverse, luscious patchwork" of the Darussalami realm.

Master of Thousand Faces is often paired with The Most Ancient One, personifying Darussalami common philosophy and history.

Many people would consider Alphonse to be the personification of Fatatatutti. (In case anybody doesn't know, he's a duck.)

Fat and lazy we can live with. But ironically, most Fatatatutians can't swim and most don't like heights, so the comparison doesn't fit all that well.

Postby Ankuran » Tue Apr 10, 2018 12:45 pm

Ankuran has Jacques DuBois, an old New Belgian folk hero. Jacque DuBois, also called Jack Wood, is a frontiersman, farmer, and all-around master of the wilderness. He was created by the Belgian crown as a sort of everyman to use as propaganda during Belgium's forays into the Sargasso Sea Territories (now New Belgium and Ankuran). The saying "Jacque DuBois peut" was used in response to rhetorical questions, such as "Can you kill a Belgian puma? Jack Wood can." Eventually, it was used as a sort of humorous comeback, similar to the use of "My dad" among American children who claim their fathers are capable of superhuman feats (or, in more modern times, Chuck Norris jokes). As times changed, Jacque DuBois' exploits became more and more exaggerated until he became everyone's dad, and synonymous with het vaderland.

There was a point when Jacques DuBois was also used in a manner similar to his original incarnation, but with reference to Belgium's human rights violations that occurred within the Belgium-controlled Congo in an attempt to shame the Belgian monarchy. He was also used by New Belgian dissidents as propaganda during the New Belgian and Ankuran revolutions. Pouvez-vous déposer la monarchie? Jacques DuBois peut.

We have three: Paćina, Prosperona, and Pragratina, three women who represent the three values of Xmara: peace, prosperity, and progress.

Paćina is dressed in a long white lacy gown and has a dove perched on her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. On her head is a laurel wreath.

Prosperona is dressed in a black cloak and wears a silver crown on her head. She carries a black staff with a silver orb on the end.

Pragratina is dressed in a turquoise dress with a gold crown on her head. She carries a gold telescope in her right hand and a torch in her left hand.

For the archipelago it is Sudra - the bear on our flag.

Legend tells that Sudra, a warrior-philosopher emerged from the forests in the old times and united the otherwise human tribe’s of Verwood Island - the largest island in the archipelago.

After his death Sudra’s body was carried to the summit of Cadair Sudra (Chair of Sudra) mountain and burned in a funeral pyre.

His values of honour, courage, humility and tolerance remain fundamental to Archipelagoan philosophy in the present day.

The national personification of Deseret and Zion is known as "John Smith," or sometimes as, "Uncle John." He is usually portrayed as a middle-aged white male, with a heavy brown beard and tan, wind-burnt face, traditionally wearing a denim jacket and ten-gallon hat. Uncle John is not modeled on any one individual, but is depicted with a kindly, familiar face - someone who could be anyone's uncle or grandfather. He is generally given to simple mannerisms and is a devout Mormon, sometimes depicted as carrying the Book of Mormon under one arm.
