Culture Shock the AN: VI

Postby Frievolk » Sat Dec 08, 2018 12:45 pm

So, we've finally reached the sixth version of this thread. You already know the drill, but I would now like to take this opportunity to continue the tradition of passing down the OP that has survived through the ages:

Basically, post an interesting tidbit about your nation's culture (but this can include military, legislative, or any other interesting facts) that you think the nation above would find a bit shocking. (I would recommend skimming through factbooks or looking for previous posts on this thread for the best possible shock!)

Example:

Nation 1: "Our people hate homosexuals, and stone them to death!"
Nation 2: "We are a country full of lesbians."
Nation 3: "We have perfected wormhole technology."
Nation 4: "A Social Democrat won our last election for president."
Nation 5: "A popular pastime in our nation is paying strippers to kick us in the gut and tell us we don't matter."

And so on...

Since I have nothing to shock, I get to wait.

The private security contractor is a decently-respected career as opposed to how PMCs are viewed in other nations; this is because we made extensive use of foreign PMCs during our own failed rebellion prior to the creation of Exodia.

The Empire places very strict regulations on civilian armaments, most being restricted to basic and outdated chemically propelled kinetic weapons with limited range and ammunition capacity, such as pistols, and even then only after passing a stringent examination to ensure that they can be trusted with it. As a result, PMCs or militias are unheard of.
