Creepy Facts about YN

Postby Subhurbia » Sun Oct 04, 2020 12:21 pm

It’s that time of the year again! What are some things about your nation that can be considered creepy or scary. It can be a historical fact, a government secret, a particular holiday, etc. Anything about YN that can cause goosebumps.

A creepy fact about my nation: (probably more to come)
There are priests in Northwest Subhurbia who re animate deceased bodies for specific biddings and rituals. Basically, these people make human zombies for specific purposes.

Absolute secret, only known in the highest spheres of power, is the fact that the current Keisaer (Emperor) Adrean Blachkor has done a lot of dark deeds. He has experimented on various criminals various ways to give death (such as shooting someone in the perineal area and measure how long it would take for the person to die from bloodloss.)

Also, another dark historical fact, not secret this time, is that ever since the Imperium has existed, babies who had Down syndrome would be secretly disposed of by various means. Nowadays, when a pregnant woman has her future bay diagnosed with Down syndrome, she aborts in 99% of cases.

One of our famous colonization starships; the Modig Utforsker had a run-in with something in a deep area of space that had the ability to shut down the entire ship's systems and electricity. The crewman had no choice but to wait everything out, as the engineers were unable to locate anything wrong with the ship. Many of the crewman reported seeing an anomalous shadowy figure about thirty times larger than the ship to be responsible for the shutdown. Nobody knows for sure what exactly happened after the ship regained power and the reported figure faded into the blackness of space.

The most terrifying fact of our nation was when the Giuseppe Verdi Nuclear Plant exploded, the location will not be revealed and what happened was that it exploded due to a government error, killing about 200,000 inhabitants and we did not say anything, we kept it a secret and a city disappeared from the history books and from the minds of the people and anyone who said that that city existed or that had a missing relative in that city was completely neutralized

Despite Xeloncaresia being just as large as the United States in terms of area, and having a population size quite similar to the United States, its population is quite scattered via city states and they are high security cities. You couldn’t take a road trip from one to another that’s far away, not only because there’s 2/3 of a chance you’re driving a full electric car, but because the city government wouldn’t allow you to. If you want to go from one city state to another, you’ll have to take public transport (like a bus, monorail, or even by plane). Over 99% of the population live in these city states and they have autonomy of their own. So long answer short: over 99% of the Xeloncaresian population is contained in population centers by the national government. Anybody sneaking out will be tracked down and arrested. Aside from Orwellian like Style Security Systems, that’s the creepiest fact about Xeloncaresia.

There are two cities located on two very close islands called Avcoda Islands, connected by each other via a bridge. One is Avcoda, California, the other is Avcoda, Andocara. These cities are right by each other and are identical in layout, positions of stores, banks, schools, etc, and even street names are nearly identical. The only difference between Avcoda (USA) and Avcoda (Andocara) is that Avcoda Andocara has left handed traffic, so its basically a mirrored version of Avcoda, California. For example, in Palm Street, Avcoda, USA, there is a McDonald’s on your left and a Starbucks on your right, and there is a left turn light that can take you to McDonald’s, whereas you could just turn in to go to Starbucks. In Palm Street, Avcoda, Andocara meanwhile, there is also a McDonald’s at the exact corresponding location but it’s on the right hand side and there’s a Starbucks on your left hand side, and unlike in America, because Andocara drives on the left, you can turn in to go to Starbucks, whereas there is a right turning traffic light that can take you to McDonald’s. Another strange thing is that every time a building is torn down or renovated, or built in Avcoda, California, the same thing goes on in Avcoda, Andocara.

A Goldmanian owned F-14 Tomcat fighter, that reportedly went missing on December 9 1979, reappeared over the skies of Varyag International Airport and landed into the ocean. The main body of the jet was recovered along with several pieces hours later. The creepy thing is, the 2 pilots purportedly driving this fighter weren't recovered on the crash site. This especially is added up that the jet communicated with Air Traffic Control through Morse Code. It is still unknown why the jet went missing in the first place, where it had been and how did it got back decades later intact.

The final Morse Code message received from it was received at 8:00:51, a mere 9 seconds before it crashed into the ocean at a high speed, with the following message:

There is an old folk legend told on the Isle of Blawon (what we know as Fyn, Denmark) about another island just off their coast. One night, the only town on the island experienced a flood which sunk the island, killing its 7000 residents. It is said that if you sail close enough at night, you can still hear the old church bells ring.

Here is another creepy fact (cause why not):

The Battle of Wilbert Island began on October 3 1975 and ended 5 days later on October 8, between Goldmanian Army units and Islamic terrorists occupying the island. The island was first converted to a military base to train militiamen, but was soon abandoned due to unknown circumstances. It is said by local lore that the souls of the Islamic terrorists still haunted the island. The Military also hasn't released a statement regarding the abandoning of the island. Fishermen reported hearing what sounded to be gunshots coming from the island. One of them actually was mysteriously "shot" to death when he went too close to Wilbert. An AK-47 even washed up on a beach on the nearest island a few months after that.

The island has been closed off from the public by the Navy, and is still being investigated by paranormal and military experts. Some also reports that you can sometimes here the Islamic mantra (Allahu Akbar) being shouted from the island around midnight to 3AM.

The mystery church of La Cacti
When the city of La Cacti being built, the workers found a church of unknown origin deep inside the forest. Inside the church they found a strange altar with a porcelain doll sitting on top. Nobody knew what religion had been practiced there, nor did they know who built it. To this day it still stands at the eastern side of the city, and the porcelain doll has never been moved. Oddly, the church bell always chimes 13 times at 11:11, even though nobody is allowed in after 6:00.

An "OVNI" crashed in the 1983 at Montserrat mountain range not far from Òdena AB. In what is called the "European Rosswell" The fact is that this was due to the secretism about the crash and the fact that the crash site was immediately closed and guarded 24h/day by the military. The rumours grew and the place is now visited by many UFO fans and conspiration theorists.

The truth is that the crash was a Soviet recce MiG25R with Algerian markings that crashed according our investigators report to a malfunction of the oxygen system. And the visual report of the intercepting F16s pilots.

In the 80s Soviet MiG25Rs with Algerian Markings regularly violated our airspace in spite of our Air Force efforts.
