What would a national spirit for AN be?

Postby Vadterland » Thu Sep 23, 2021 10:58 pm

It seems the old versions of this thread are pretty long dead, but they were pretty good postwise. May as well bring it back to life.

So, what is a national spirit? In the Paradox grand strategy game Hearts of Iron IV, a national spirit is an in-game modifier that positively or negatively affects the country they are attached to. They reflect a specific part of the nation's society, be it an aspect of the military, economy, government, institutions, culture, technology, as well as socio-political movements, countercultures, or rebelliousness among the populace, and just about any element of a country you can think of that might affect how it runs for good or ill. Examine the AN's factbooks and dispatches, or any other medium through which it lets information slip, and try your hand at making a national spirit they might have if they existed in the game.

Since there's no one above me, the User Control Panel goes first as an example.

This entity really doesn't seem to bother getting involved in the affairs of others. It just sits there at the top of the page, caring not for the disputes or squabbles of the many disparate nations, peoples, and leaders below. Never mind the fact that it doesn't have sentience or is literally just a directory.

In a strange world not so different from ours, a young empire stands in the heart of Europa. Born and forged in the fires of war, and headed by an embittered Kaiserin and her ambitious generals. Stretched to a breaking point and groaning under the stress and hubris of its past victories, the Fatherland stands on guard. But on the forefront of a new world, fighting a new war from without and within, will it survive?

Though power had been formally relinquished following our victory in the Weltkrieg, the General Staff of the Heer continue supervising the democratic system; exercising soft power whenever applicable and sneakily manipulating election results, maintaining the status quo in favour of the Fatherland Party.

While a bit controversial with some elements inside the nation, Android Forces have proven to be a somewhat cost-effective alternative to conscripted flesh and blood. Not only that, but gives the CPU production line an excuse to start kicking into Overdrive. QUICK, GET ALL THE CPUS!

Imperial States of Duotona
When good beats evil, the sky's the limit.
A nation peacefully residing within Oceania with a bloody past. Managing to overcome the odds to prevent colonsiation, Duotona has had to endure many trials caused by internal pressure. Still in a recovery process from the last dictatorship that it had to endure, the nation has risen from the ashes to become an unexpected nation of interest. No longer will Duotona face misery.

The last few years have been nothing short of hellish for Aerlanica and her people. A civil war sparked by the rise of an autocratic dictator saw unprecedented levels of economic, environmental, and human devastation arise as the bloody conflict dragged on to its bitter end. Millions of Aerlanica's sons and daughters lie in shallow graves, their lands raped and burned, their cities in tatters, and the survivors of the war left ragged and scarred. Beaten, starved, and diminished it may be though, Aerlanica has weathered the storm, and her citizens may yet have the chance to rebuild and set things right.

With the end of the Civil War, our nation once again stands, however it stands on pillars of salt and sand. The land has been tainted by the remnants of war and destruction, our population has been decimated, finally our infrastructure barely stands.
