What's the distinguishing/unique feature of AN or its User?

The place to relax, unwind, share a joke, and generally goof off.

The fact that most of their nations have a lot of revisions and retcons done, perhaps especially with their main. Also of note is how, for the most parts, they always like to talk about their history's nation, culture, and leader above anything else, so you don't see military factbooks from them that often. Not that it's a negative trait, and more of an observation.

They're like us in how they're adopting the symbolism for something unrelated, but instead of a successor state, they've gone and turned it on its head. A communist America is nothing special, but a communist America with Southern symbolism is. Especially when considering their use of the West-of-the-Mississippi flag rather than the more commonly known one.

I am always impressed when I see detailed factbooks about leaders and the history of a nation
I use NS stats for anything that is not mentioned in my Factbooks, so pretty much everything at the moment.

Absolutly Terrible is a military dictatorship that seeks to eradicate all borders and achieve global communism. Those who interfere with this goal are summarily destroyed.
Factbooks are WIP
The name is intentionally spelled wrong to emphasize how bad this place is. Also AbsolutEly terrible was taken.

A CSA that comes about not as a result of an alternate past civil war, but a future cultural conflict.
The first sound of the future, the society of the future
Japan missed the software revolution. Hatsunia embraced it.

Probably one of the more uniquely strange names that I have the pleasure of coming across, coupled with the fact that the nation's factbooks are all in that grey computer terminal look, so there is that!

Being a West African country that's optimistic without going into full-on alternate history wank territory. Africa and especially West Africa are not commonly explored on this site, and there's a tendency to either exaggerate how good/bad things are.
We do not use NS Stats or Policies

I'm trying a different approach with this particular nation, so feel free to telegram me any feedback you may have.

Comprehensible African first-world nations are rare come on both NationStates and real life, so good for them.

AN is a complete departure from their other nations, and often give me Speidska-ish vibes. Not exactly unique, but rarely done and rarely done good. Hopefully it continues to grow and improve on this niche category of nations.

Quebec, Switzerland, and Haudegy are all based nations. I like this interpretation of a Quebec because an Islamic Republic-like government is least expected in the west. The idea that the moral police force is larger than the conventional army is unique.

Not many people have had the experience of seeing the AN die before their own eyes mere minutes after replying... My condolences to Quebec, though...

Anyway, one thing I find unique about you (which I hope I have not talked about) is your ability to come up with new contents and concepts that are in turn pretty darned unique themselves. And also how fast you make ideas happen, yeah.

I have said perhaps a few times too many about how much your nation defies the typical clichés of a Russian nation, so I quite like that still! One unique thing is how you are able to just churn out a lot of characters and not just characters themselves but giving them all the depth that one possibly could. They're very three dimensional, and I have the utmost pleasure of talking to them.
