Television, movies, and video games sold in Kepiros follow the rating system created by the Athens Board of Culture & Recreation. Regions and stores set their own laws/policies on restricting sale of content to certain consumers. Ratings are printed on the containers and packaging of the physical items as well as displayed in advertising. Packaging and containers include details for the assigned rating on the back.

GA (General Audiences): Contains minimal or no objectionable content. Most educational material and documentaries get this rating, as does entertainment for very young children.

MLD (Mild Content): Entertainment for grade-school children would generally go here. Details to highlight would include comic mischief, cartoon violence, mild suggestive themes/humor, mild language, and mild horror.

MTR (Mature Content): Entertainment for teenagers and adults would generally go here. Details to highlight would include violence, blood, gore, sexual content, nudity, crude humor, consistent profanity, and substance use.

We use European and Turkish ratings, some Asian ones are used as well by some vendors depending on what they purchase, we have no standardized or enforced rating system.

AA--All Audiences.

10+--Suitable for those ten and up.

16+--Suitable for those 16 and up.

21+--Suitable for adults only.

EX--Extreme content. Generally, this means porn.

CNR--Consumption Not Recommended. Generally, this means far-right and fascist propaganda, and such materials are only meant to be used in educational settings where their ideas are deconstructed and studied to better learn how to combat them.
THE UNITED STATES OF KURIYAMA
Social democratic nation on an Austrailia-esque continent in the North Pacific. A mix of American and Japanese culture. Ignore NS stats--population is 42 million.

I believe in helping others and not being a jerk to people less fortunate than me. In other words, I'm a socialist!

We don't have any content ratings in our nation, content is either allowed or it is banned.
Despite the name, we are not a version of Earth that is entirely Muslim, the name refers to our country's desire for all the world to become Muslim.
This nation does not represent my views.

Antarctica 3 uses the Antarctica 3 Media Ratings System to rate movies, video games, television shows, and books.






Content DescriptorsRating
4 to 8 and older, recommended for children. Literally nothing bad in it.6-8C
8 to 12 and older, recommended for older children. May contain mild fantasy violence, or minimal suggestive themes.9-11OC
12 to 16 and older, recommended for adolescents. May contain semi-realistic violence, mild suggestive themes, and mild to moderate suggestive language.12-16A
16 to 18 and older, recommended for older adolescents. May contain realistic violence, moderate suggestive themes, and moderate suggestive language. For video games, this rating is the point where you are allowed to add micro-transactions.16-18OA
18 to 21 and older, recommended for adults. May contain frequent and realistic violence, explicit suggestive themes, and explicit suggestive language. Media with this rating is only available online, as Antarctica 3 retail stores are, by law, not allowed to stock them.18-21AD


Media deemed publicly offensive, such as propaganda or stuff from the dark web, are not rated and only available online.
Antarctica 3, located in Antarctica, is a nation from the Grand Theft Auto school of annoying political satire.

Tier 7, Level 1, Type 4

I use all NS stats, but issues are slightly altered to make a more interesting story and fit the Antarctica 3 canon.

Lead Minister: Gerald Bay
Justice Minister: Harold James
Finance Minister: Richard Greyhound

In Yannia, there's no age-based rating system, but there is a content rating system.

In 1932, audiences objected to the lack of warning when movies with content that was considered objectionable by almost all viewers were shown. This led to the establishment of the ᛏᚫᚲᚷᚱᚢᛈ ᚠᛟᚱ ᚡᛁᛚᛗᛒᛡᛟᚱᛞᛖᛚᛁᛜ (Tákgrup vór Filmbëórdéliñ - Movie Rating Committee) in 1934, with the sole task to rate movies on their objectionable potential. Since then, movie theaters are required to list all possibly objectionable content of the movies they show. Originally this was done with abbreviations, but as those turned out to be confusing, they were soon replaced by pictograms. Moviegoers are expected to make their own decision of whether or not to see the movie.

For video games, the ratings are:

ᚫᛜᛋᛏañstfearspider
ᚱᚢᛋᛗᛁᛞᛡᛚᚷᛡᛒᚱᛎᚲrusmidëlgëbrücdrugs usesyringe

ᚷᛡᛚᛟᚠgëlófreligioncross and stars
ᛋᚷᛖᛚᛞᛡᚾsceldënoffensive languagetext balloon with ᛯᛤᛝ

In the mid-60s, with the introduction of television, the committee was renamed to ᛏᚫᚲᚷᚱᚢᛈ ᚠᛟᚱ ᚠᛡᚱᛗᚫᚲᛋᚾᛇᚠᛡᚱᚺᛇᛞ (Tákgrup vór Vërmáksneyvërheyd - Entertainment Industry Committee) and rated theater and TV shows as well. In the late-80s, as video games with video quality graphics were introduced, the system was expanded to rate video games as well.

Since 2004, distributors are expected to rate their own products, and the committee only acts on complaints.
