Welcome to Kanadorika. Ever wondered what a monarcho-fascist union between Iceland, Finland, and Korea would look like? No? Well here it is anyways, with Austria Hungary and Britain thrown in too. Oh, and traditional Catholicism and Corporatism.

I would say that only about three people use stockphotos atm.

Some people represent their views from rose-tinted glass in their main nation then makes a sh*thole nation out of ideologies they do not like in "alternate timelines".

Attention all NSers, Vadterland is in great danger, and it needs YOUR help to wipe out the Entente. To do this, it needs an army and a mage corps commanded by a loli.

This... but let me add.


It is of course okay to be a superpower or a utopia, everybody wants to have their fun. But as a serious player and a realist, they do not provide the logical working behind their supposed power and well-being.

And one more: those players who threaten to kill other nations' leaders or annex their lands over petty reasons.

Another NS Cliche. People declaring war over every petty thing in II. I mean, I realize that's pretty much how history was until fairly recently but it's still hilarious to see posts that are almost identical to the EU4 war declarations:
"WAR
My Kaiser, the bastards in
Enter Nation Here declared war
upon us! Prepare for battle...
They cite "That one thing you said against us in a post two pages ago" as their Casus Belli!"

Something that particularly bothers me on the other side of the political spectrum is right wing NSes that turn everything from post-communist to third world countries into immediate economic superpowers by doing Trump-esque economic policies and deregulations, building a stupidly large and advanced military all the while. This is often done without regard for the nuances of either whatever country they are trying to renovate or the circumstances and problems surrounding modern America.

I'm quite guilty of some of them, honestly.

Also, the tendency to paint Middle Eastern countries as hotbed for terrorism and Islamic radicalism is quite redundant. As if secular Ba'athism and Nasserism never existed.

the People of East Angria, a.k.a. the Anarchist Commune of Sassony a free territory covering most of the Low Countries, northern and western Germany, and continental Denmark, with a distinct social anarchist, pacifist, and solarpunk vibe.

Even highly democratic nations can commit hundreds of thousands of soldiers at very short notice to a war with no real pretext, time frame or defined objectives and nobody living in the nation, in government or in the press bats an eyelid.
As an editor I seam to spend an awful lot of thyme going threw issues and checking that they're no oblivious errars. Its a tough job but someone's got too do it!

Aggressive liberating democracy nations. Bonus points if their leader acts like a pirate or something.
Illysia is an ex-Terran colony that has been left rotten, degenerate, crime-filled, and unsafe after an independence war followed by a brutal civil war. Warlords, child soldiers, corruption, military juntas, and foreign exploitation galore. I will not play the leaders of these nations often, but instead their people.

This is neither an AN thread or a joke thread, I'm pretty sure.

Anyways, another: Newbie nations not only don't know what /skip is (which is kinda fair?), but also will actively respond to the /skip-using responses to them without skipping.
