Does your nation publicly admit to having propaganda? Yes. The Board of Information is a well-known government department.
If so, which kind of propaganda? The Department of Propaganda well-known for its public posters and public information films. It plays a role in organising public events such as the annual Michaelmas, Whitsunday, St. George's Day and St. Elmo's day parades. The Department of Broadcasting facilitates radio and film broadcasting. The Board always liaises with the Board of Schooling, the Clerk's Office, the War Office, the Foreign Office and other government departments to ensure a cohesive national approach.
Is your propaganda directed to make the people think that their nation is the best? It is designed to instil allegiance of the King and love of the Fatherland.
Is your propaganda useful? Polling suggests that mass propaganda events promote national unity and a feeling of commonship.

If so, which kind of propaganda? Propaganda about the Supreme Leader and his greatness. A State TV tradition that extends to each new Supreme Leader (Marie BonAztire, Zeeter Saldivar, and Waldemar Rochester), there’s always media that glorifies the Supreme Leaders in a way.
Is your propaganda directed to make the people think that their nation is the best? Yes, even though they never work nowadays.

Yes.
If so, which kind of propaganda?
Propaganda targeted at the citizens and notables of enemy polities whose communications we have successfully interdicted, to incite discord. Of course, including Panhuman Unity Programs and proconsular broadcasts, our "propaganda" is far more versatile than that.
Is your propaganda directed to make the people think that their nation is the best?
You could say that.
Is your propaganda useful?
The UCE's still going strong and proving the doubters inside and outside wrong, wrong, wrong as we approach the 400th anniversary of Colonial independence. May it continue to spite its critics and contemners for four hundred times four centuries more!

and to facilitate cooperation in the spheres of law, transportation, communication, and measurement between nation-states.

Does your nation publicly admit to having propaganda? No, not really.
Does your nation publicly denounce propaganda? Yes most of the time, but there's a fair share of politicians who do support regulated propaganda.
Did your nation ever have propaganda in it's history? Yes, most famously in the form of gun store advertisements right after the breakout of the Mid-June War.
Do you have very subtle propaganda-like things? No
Does your nation have "good" propaganda? ex: denunciation of rival nations. Refer to the "propaganda in its history" question, yes. Propaganda only really occurs during crises, promoting such activities like defense of the country.

Does your nation publicly denounce propaganda?
It did back in the 1960s. Mostly after the toppling of a dictator.

Did your nation ever have propaganda in it's history?
When the nation was founded, the dictatorship had propaganda on every wall, newspaper, anywhere inside Riverian cities had propaganda.

Do you have very subtle propaganda-like things?
The conscription policy states that after training, a soldier can return to normal life in 4 years. There is propaganda that encourages people to stay in the military, such as promising many benefits, and heavy encouragement from high ranking soldiers.

Does your nation have "good" propaganda? ex: denunciation of rival nations.
Only in times of war, military posters and propaganda will be displayed in cities.

Is your propaganda directed to make the people think that their nation is the best? Not necessarily to suggest our superiority, but mostly to remember that their #1 identity is South Perosian and that their priority should always be to protect and attack whenever necessary. Doesn't matter if you're a soldier, an average citizen, a teacher, or a worthless celebrity.
Is your propaganda useful? Given that a vast majority of our population are highly nationalistic and hostile to foreigners, we reckon they are effective.

Does your nation publicly admit to having propaganda?
There's no need to publicly admit to having "propaganda" since all nations produces propaganda to some degree. Feyrisshire of course also makes propaganda of its own.

If so, which kind of propaganda?
A lot of media coming from Feyrisshire has been denounced as "propaganda" by lots of foreign observers despite how senseless such criticism is. The news media in Feyrisshire is while in theory, dominated by "private autonomous cooperatives" is mostly owned and controlled by the state. The main newspaper in Feyrisshire is the "Faerie Worker's News", which has been considered as the mouthpiece of the National Weijyahowr of Faeries.

The Council of Feyris Entertainment Industry and Creative Industries has much clout in entertainment and the creative arts. The main style of Feyrisshire during the 1940s to 1960s was mostly dominated by Socialist Realism similar to what was produced in the USSR and China, but after that it has mostly produced its own styles of Communist propaganda, most notably the Neo-Faeric Cultural Movement.

Is your propaganda directed to make the people think that their nation is the best?
Feyris Communist propaganda is often a weird mixture between Marxist proletariat internationalism, and classical Feyris nationalism even though theoretically, according to the precepts of Marxism-Leninism, there is necessarily no contradiction between the two.

Feyris Communist propaganda is full of depictions of the High Princess Shiori and High Princess Hana Rei, the traditional founder girls of Feyrisshire being with Karl Marx, Lenin and Stalin or the Kyrieist and Ryeifinist Faerie-Goddesses such as Shiyara, Kaschya and the Goddess of War Kyrie giving the Communist Manifesto to High Princess Shiori. This depictions are all full-bent both in Marxist language and in Feyris conservative nationalist imagery which perhaps would even make Kim Il-sung squirm.

The language however seems to be that Feyrisshire is a special nation, the Feyris are a unique people which boasts centuries and millennia of history starting from Princess Shiori and the Faerie-Goddesses to a primeval era, but at the same time, it is also the "Vanguard of Communism" and the "Center of World Revolution". Anti-racism seems to be also discouraged, with images of African people and Southeast Asian peoples depicted in a positive light. Perhaps the core message is that while Feyrisshire is unique, it cannot ignore its internationalist duties to the Third World.

Is your propaganda useful?
It has been debated whether Feyrisshire's internal stability and the relative loyalty of the population is either due to the effectiveness of Marxist indoctrination and propaganda, its ability to adjust to modern times unlike that of China's and North Korea's, or simply the rising economic conditions and living standards of the population.

Polls from NGOs such as Heritage Foundation has long tried to ascertain the amount of support of the populace to the National Weijyahowr of Faeries, and while perhaps liberal NGOs had long tried to exaggerate in the opposite direction, the amounts has always been high. In 2016, 95% of the population reportedly supported the policies of the National Weijyahowr of Faeries. 93% supports continued socialism and communism in Feyrisshire. This is even higher with a poll in 2013 in which 91% voted in favor.

Of course Feyris propaganda has also had other purposes as well, such as criticizing political enemies such as High Princess Feyris Cherise and Amaryllis Chrysanthemum, in which big red-character posters appeared denouncing the political couple for being "revisionist", "fascist" and "capitalist". At other times, it has weird results. The combination of denouncing of Japan, South Korea, England and America as "imperialist" and the showing of pop culture from both countries has lead to a grassroots movements calling for a "Communist revolution" in the aforementioned countries, which was quickly suppressed by the Feyris Seybenhann.

Propaganda in Somiens-et-Haveras

Postby Somiens-et-Haveras » Thu Sep 23, 2021 2:45 am

Does your nation publicly admit to having propaganda? Yes, propaganda efforts are overseen by the Ministry of Culture and Public Relations.

If so, which kind of propaganda? The government has a good number of propaganda initiatives, mainly educational, with topics ranging from emergency preparedness and medical knowledge to political literacy and environmental stewardship. The Ministry also operates a few radio and television channels, broadcasting news, music, PSA's, and cultural programs.

Is your propaganda directed to make the people think that their nation is the best? No, or at least not directly anyway. Though we'd be lying if we said that our nation didn't occasionally end up being portrayed in a positive light. That being said, state news broadcasting in Somiens-et-Haveras is generally renowned for its objectivity.

Is your propaganda useful? Generally considered to be so by residents, yes. It has proven very useful for quickly disseminating critical information during disasters, raising public consciousness on issues, and fostering ethical and moral cohesiveness among residents.

Does your nation publicly admit to having propaganda?
To a degree, yes.

If so, which kind of propaganda?
Nowadays, Lillorainian propaganda covers a variety of topics, including but not limited to: preparedness for national and local emergencies, political literacy, environmental awareness, gun safety and the use of a militia system, the use of the military, protection of ethnic minorities (this is particularly a thing with State Governments), issues on infrastructure, promotion of Lillorainian culture domestically and abroad to a mild degree of Lillorainian Exceptionalism, promotion of the Strategic and Economic Alliance as a chance. Back in the 1980s, armed neutrality and anti-communism were major parts of Lillorainian propaganda, and the Lillorainian Exceptionalism part was rampant, but this has changed around 1990. In either case, the Meritocratic Unity Party does/did display itself in a very positive manner. There is also public broadcasting, but at least nowadays, it can be considered fairly unbiased.

Is your propaganda directed to make the people think that their nation is the best?
It used to be back in the 1980s, but with the respect for other countries having grown since then and Lillorainen having joined SEA, things have become a lot more differenciated, and state media no longer display Lillorainen as though it were superior over other countries. The Meritocratic Unity Party only tends to depict itself a bit more positively when it comes to positive achievements.

Is your propaganda useful?
While it's quite pro-MUP, the news are generally considered fairly objective, thus useful.

No Keklystan does not publicly admit to having propaganda but it is very obvious to the citizen that the Ministry of Media, Information, and Communication (Or in just MIC for short) is in reality just our propaganda Ministry.

If so, which kind of propaganda?
State Television, Radio, Newspapers, and Public Posters/Billboards around the nation. The goal of these propaganda campaigns is to indoctrinate the population to get their personal views to match those that the MIC deem acceptable.

Is your propaganda directed to make the people think that their nation is the best?
Yes. The MIC wants to convince the population that Keklystan is heaven on Earth, if that is true or not is debatable.

Is your propaganda useful?
Yes, The MIC estimate that over 78% of the population has already been fully indoctrinated or is in the process of soon being that. The MIC estimate that in another 10-15 years the rest of the population will have been indoctrinated as well.

Postby Hermosamente » Fri Oct 01, 2021 3:11 am

Does your nation publicly admit to having propaganda?

- Yes, it is handled by the Ministry of Patriotism, as well as the media who also promotes Hermosan propaganda. But propaganda in Hermosamente is meant to be educational and thus, not harming anyone.

If so, which kind of propaganda?

- Militaristic, Cultural, and Religious related propagandas are heavily made and enforced by the government. The purpose of these propagandas are to make the younger generations love their country more, as well as to encourage them to serve and protect the nation, keeping spirituality alive, and etc.

- Propagandas showing Presidents or heads of state are shown everywhere, from portraits to creative posters, every President of the Patriotic State Party are shown in buildings, offices, schools, bars, and even tourist destinations like beaches and many more. Plays and movies featuring the Hermosan Civil War is also common, it always depicts the Patriots as the heroes that brought back Hermosamente to its roots and tradition and defeating the bloodthirsty socialists. It is said that the Hermosan Civil War is the most popular type of Hermosan propaganda.

- Art is another form of propaganda, murals of Patriotic State Party Presidents and images of Jesus Christ adorn most of the streets of cities that have many murals. Art is considered as one of the most powerful tool of propaganda as it can persuade people just by looking at them.

- Military marches are also considered as one, Hermosan military marches includes all of our pride as one of Latin America's most powerful nations. Our marches also includes the display of nuclear missiles, which is a symbol of power and authority over our neighbors.

Is your propaganda directed to make the people think that their nation is the best?

- To some degree, but there is an acknowledgement of cooperation or being friendly to other countries including the nation's major ally the United States. While propagandas showing other nations inferior are mostly socialist/communist countries.

Is your propaganda useful?

- Yes, Hermosan propaganda imposed by the right-wing government after the civil war has reached all levels of media, education, and everything we see in society (posters, etc.). Young generations of back then also taught the modern generation of what they perceived as propaganda, and so the cycle continues... While limited freedom of speech exist, most of the populace are well behaved and believing that the current government or status-quo is satisfactory. This indicates that indoctrination of the populace since the late 1950s are successful.

THE PATRIOTIC REPUBLIC OF HERMOSAMENTE
Formerly a Spanish and an American colony, the nation is under a right-wing benevolent dictatorship as a result of a civil war in 1954 which ended the democratic socialist regime in 1957. The island nation would recover from its past wounds and eventually becoming a 1st world country in Latin America today while still under a right-wing regime which resembled Francoist Spain (1939 - 1975).

Does your nation publicly admit to having propaganda?
Propaganda? What? No- haha... You see, we just want to ensure our citizens are educated without improper influences. :)
If so, which kind of propaganda?
Nononono- it's not propaganda. We just want to ensure that everybody is proud of their nation, and knows what is acceptable in the eyes of god or not!
Is your propaganda directed to make the people think that their nation is the best?
Of course! Not to imply that we use propaganda, of course. We don't use that.

Is your propaganda useful?
yes
PEOPLE'S SOCIAL REPUBLIC OF ALEXANDRIA
An indivisible nation under God.
hey, wait- that sounds familiar

In an alternative timeline, the French colonize the South and gain independence from a Protestant, English North. Later go crazy on consumerism and corporatism which results in a revolution; decides to worship God and be Marxist at the same time.
No, the views of this nation don't reflect my own ;) But expect for things to be in character.

Code: Select all
"We most definitely do not- I'm telling you, I'm telling you right now, okay? We don't use propaganda. A lot of people say we do, but we don't. Okay, if- if we used propaganda, then it would be obvious, right? Because- you know, most propaganda, is really- really obvious. I don't think anybody is denying that."
