How Popular Is AN National Sport In YN?

Postby Arathane » Wed Sep 01, 2021 7:16 pm

Very simple

My nations most popular sport is auto racing, specifically open wheel and motobikes.

You then reply with how popular auto racing is in your nation and then list your nation's most popular sport.

Not popular at all, since even holding such a sport would be almost impossible.

My nations most popular sport is parkour.

Near non-existent due to various laws and morality culture.

Auto Racing is rather popular in Bronchadia, as Northern Bronchadia has a very high density of tarmac and dirt circuits & a culture around the national car manufacturer, BAMC.

Bronchadia's most popular sport is Offroad Endurance Racing.

I assume Arathane's sports are Moto Bikes and Open Wheelers. It depends on region, really. Any racing sport is not that popular within the coastal areas of east Lescaaris. However people of western and central Lescaaris might choose to participate racing in those certain vehicles as a hobby or a way to mess around.

Lescaaris has 4 national sports:

- Golf
- Synchronized Swimming
- Competitive Swimming
- Shooting Sports (Target Shooting and Airsoft, to be specific)
Lescaaris, a progressive democratic-diarchic merchant republic in the near-future "post-post-apocalyptic" America, where society is rebuilt and new nation-states have been created while the United States government is nowhere to be found (I doubt the setting is really important and relevant though). Famous for European architecture, EDM, nightclubs, civil liberties, job opportunities, and trade fairs.

(To get a general theme-idea, Lescaarch culture is a combination of Dutch, Italian, Belgian, Monégasque, and French cultures.)

Golf is, to no surprise, mainly followed by older folks. The Duke, however, has been known to ocassionally attend certain events. Whereas shooting competitions are widely observed and with some rising Anathanite talent, who knows where Anathane will stand in the shooting world.

Again, auto racing.

Both of them are not that popular due to being somewhat complicated in nature. Most Sherechians don't even know how baseball works.

All of them are very popular in the nation, particularly due to Pirusavians' general physical capability of being fast, light, and agile.

However, it depends on the region too. Water polo is much more popular in the state of Samgurtia (as it is mostly populated by otter people) while the former and latter is much more popular in the other states, especially Galennia.

Football is very popular in Sherechia, it's cheap and relatively simple to understand. It's popular in rural areas as there's plenty of space and in urban areas as well let's face it, practicing Sherechian Rodeo in the city is a bit inconvenient. Fun fact, we're not that good in football but if we're the host we always win as foreign players keep fainting from altitude sickness. Aruday is 3Km above sea level after all.

The citizens of the French Popular State have never heard of the sport, nor would really like to try it due to how dangerous it looks.

The most popular sport in France is football.

Association Football isn't particularly popular outside of Bolivar and the Venezuelan Territory.

Stephaniesland's national sport is American football.

Stephaniesland is NOT a dictatorship. At least read the first line of the wiki factbook.
If only finishing a factbook was as easy as watching GTLive

The Republic of Palestine has just been declared war upon by the tyrannical Neo-Davidist Republic of Acre. The Confederate government has announced their support for Palestine, in accordance with the Treaty of Jerusalem, which granted Palestine its independence and involved Stephaniesland guaranteeing its independence.

One of our national sports is... ya' know, shootin', but with a variety of challenging targets.

Not at all popular, because frankly, such a sport does not exists in Galimencia.




There are several sports that began in Galimencia(in my canon), however the three which deserve to be regarded as national sports are, in decreasing order of popularity, as follows:

1. Football
2. Cricket
3. Rugby
