Values: Cosnicu individuals value most of all the ability to do anything beneficial. Altruism, advancement, empathy, and education are all vauled highly among Cosnicu
Traditions: The cosnicu have several traditions, including helpign the community as a whole, engaging in democracy, developing robust infrastructure. Traditions tend to vary towards community feasts, gifting serimonies, and similar activities.
Art: Cosnicu art is usually political, social, or some other form of commentary, which may vary depending upon the artist.
Architecture: Cosnicu architecture focuses more on the ability to create a "concrete canvas" (despite concrete not being used very often and considered undesireable when compared to better materials) with their own buildings, and many have murals fitting in with nearby structures, sculptures, and displays.
City Planning: Cosnicu cities are very densely built, and form a torus shape (in terms of how densly packed and how tall buildings will be in a given part of the city) usually surrounding a large, singluar building devoted to a public service of one kind or another. (the only exception is J'Tu's harbor, which both encircles the city and makes up a large part of its center)
Did your people have some sort of scar from history?: Their main scars were from the construction war, and from the pre collapse world.
What is their version of the ideal place and situation?: (TBA)

Values: The most important value in Rehuan society is "Mana" which can loosely be translated as 'pride, authority and honour'. People are expected to be extremely polite, act with honour and to value tradition.
Traditions: Probably too many to list here. The most notable would be the various public festivals and holidays, which are usually linked to the seasons.
Art: Wood-carving is the most prominent 'traditional' form of art, however the nation also has a strong musical and literary tradition dating back several thousand years. In modern times animation, film and video games have become major artforms though art has become notably more 'westernised' since the 1980s.
Architecture: Traditional architecture consists mostly of a-frame wooden buildings, usually painted red and decorated with wood-carvings. Today it's mostly high-rises, given the westernisation of the nation as well as the population growth.
City planning: Depends on the city. Tamaki is known for a large sprawl of little alleyways next to major highways and is the least 'planned' city. Wharekorana is the most planned, consisting of concentric circles emanating from the central mosque while Whakaara's old city is a grid centred around the Imperial Palace while the new city is more of a maze due to the rough mountainous topography.
Did your people have some sort scar from history? There are several. For many people the war of the 1970s and subsequent occupation is a scar, given that many saw Tangatarehua as the victim of western aggression unfairly made to take the blame for a war it didn't start. The war of the 1950s is a source of national shame (the nation was basically fascist at this time) while the many attempts at colonisation in the 19th century and the widespread vandalism associated with Christian immigrants is also a source of anger even to this day.
what is their version of the ideal place and situation? Tangatarehua is not a particularly idealistic nation, usually preferring to concentrate on the present day as long as people (and the nation)'s pride, independence and honour is able to be maintained.

Values: family, faith, and community. Largely, the teachings of the Unification Church, particularly from the Divine Principle, guide the values of Pasadenan society. This includes a blend of Christianity, more puritanical American ideals, and Korean emphasis on social harmony rather than individual freedom.
Traditions: All men, before doing military service, must marry and spend one year acclimatizing themselves to marriage and family life. Mass weddings are regularly held by the Church authorities and attendance at the closest congregation is compulsory.
Art: There is a strong bent toward "holy" themes of art, such as representations of Father (Reverend Sun Myung Moon), Mother, Christ, angels, etc.
Architecture: There is a growing trend toward Korean-style architecture, which blends as seamlessly as possible with the old Southwestern styles and other American traditions.
City planning: Heavy emphasis on churches, schools, and housing meant for extended families. Naturally, every effort is being made to root out "bad" businesses and encourage "good, wholesome" ones. Bars and adult establishments are subject to regular stings or raids by the Purification Squads (religious police, largely composed of newlywed young men just prior to compulsory military service).
Did your people have some sort scar from history?what is their version of the ideal place and situation?(a lavish Palace,fighting for the country on the front lines,working hard for their country in a factory..etc) Fireball Day aka Doomsday, regarded by Church authorities as "hand of God in judgment upon the wickedness of men." Said event occurred on 6 July, 2013, and society has never been the same, in Pasadena as well as outside of it. The city itself still occasionally endures the stench of "brimstone" (sulphur) from the nearby ruins of Los Angeles.

Values: hard work, duty, individuality, religion, rule of law, freedom
Traditions: smoking , drinking, new year celebration, philosophical debate, tea making
Art: Ancient art consist of mosaics in old temples, jewellery, pottery and carpet's. Rohvania also has a several influential orchestra's and has a long literary tradition.
Architecture: Rohvania is famous for the red bricked buildings topped with spire's and domes as well as the rural logged houses. In the 17th century however the aesthetic style moved to be more European and gothic. Modern architecture style is simplistic and box like, with pillar's around the building in a modern blend on old styles.
City planning: Most of our cites and towns of 100's if not 1000's of years old and as a result city planning is made to not ruin the historic aesthetic (what are counted as world heritage sites). There is alot of limitations for city planners and building permits preventing or limiting the Hight and style of buildings what can be build.
Did your people have some sort scar from history?what is their version of the ideal place and situation?(a lavish Palace,fighting for the country on the front lines,working hard for their country in a factory..etc) The ideal place and situation is to have a middle class job what provides for your family

Postby Syndic Australia » Sun Dec 05, 2021 7:42 pm

Values: Australic culture is built around six core values;

  • Candor: Australics value frank and concise speech. One is expected to speak, listen, and act truthfully and in good faith; communicating always to understand, not to mislead or deceive others or oneself. All Australics consider it paramount to call out malcommunication and deceitful speech and practices, to always ask questions, and to speak their minds.

  • Tact: Australics value an understanding of the multi-facets of people and situations and striving for the best aggregate outcome in conflict. Compromise is considered the best outcome in a situation, but only when it results from genuine understanding and thus is a synthesis of consensus, rather than being merely a stop-gap that leaves neither side feeling understood.

  • Conscience: Australics pride themselves in acting with consistency, reliability, industry, and thought. "The collective experience of humanity is a deep well from which one should always draw, to ignore it is to enbrittle oneself". One is always expected to be cognizant of their actions and their effects on their community, and to make the best decisions for the collective good.

  • 'The Fair Go': Australics are expected to act in the best interests of equity. One is encouraged to be open to one another and to new ideas and opportunities for cooperation, whilst being understanding of each other's limits and boundaries. In the justice system, this applies to the act of passing sanctions with the aim of reformation, and in consideration of all factors and root causes (but not as excuses).

  • Moderation: Australics see the extremes of overconsumption and austerity as the byproduct of a poor community, as a well moderated community would share the load of it's members' burdens and boons. There is an adage in Austro-Anglic that translates as such; "It's better to share one meal with friends than feast alone". This standard is also held to emotional moderation; happiness and good times are considered best shared, just as emotional burdens and needs are considered best supported and fulfilled when shared.

  • 'Mateship': The Commune is valued as the most important social unit in Australia society, and it is considered virtuous to maintain a high level of civic engagement and awareness. One is expected to invest in their community, both practically and intellectually, as this is seen as a major source of self-fulfillment and integral to the social cohesion and progress of the nation. One is expected to always be willing to help their neighbours and be willing to ask for help as well. "A problem shared is a problem solved".

Traditions: Australic traditions vary widely between communes due to the nation's multiculturalism, but the core of all Australic traditions is the Commune. The Communal Centre is the nexus for most traditional events and practices and it is the collective that sets these precedents and maintains them over the generations.

Art: Modern art trends take influence from Pre-War art styles (such as cubism), Art-Deco, and indigenous art.

Architecture: The prevailing architectural style for many decades has been what is termed as 'Australic-Deco'. Most public buildings are built in this style, as well as many condominiums. Aside from this, architecture that is complimentary and appropriate for the environment and climate is preferred.

City planning: Greenery is heavily incorporated into all infrastructure. The nation is heavily focused towards pedestrian infrastructure and public transport, with all communes designed to be walkable and interconnected through bus and rail services.


Did your people have some sort scar from history? The Great War (1914 - 1921) was deeply scarring to the national consciousness, as were the following few years up until the Syndic Revolution. In addition are the scars of colonialism, especially of indigenous genocide.

What is their version of the ideal place and situation? The ideal place and situation for an Australic is their commune, surrounded by friends and family, sharing in the prosperity brought about by harmonious cooperation.

Values: Wisdom. The elderly are the most respected people in Tsu Shima, and they are the ones who sit down to eat while the younger population nourish themselves standing up. Knowledge is also a very important value in Tsu Shiman culture, with books and bamboo scrolls adorning every apartment or hut in Tsu Shima. The Tsu Shiman Shogun is approximately 96.3 years old at the current moment, which brings him great respect. Resilience and patience are also factors of value, with boys as young as 6 traversing mountain peaks every other day, and counting bags of rice is a popular activity inside Tsu Shiman homes. Children and adults are taught to be compassionate towards others, as this will reward them later on in life, and possibly in the afterlife.
Traditions: Tsu Shima is one of the most traditional nations on the southern archipelago below japan. All citizens are required to be versed in Tai-Chi, Karate, Taekwondo, and judo. Meditation takes place for at least 1 hour a day, where the citizens of Tsu Shima learn mindfulness and control of their bodies. A random guard will sometimes sneak into homes to attack Tsu shimans, to which they will have to react in order to dodge the painful blow. Tea is used as a medication for many ailments. The Tsu Shiman mint leaf has a healing property that reduces symptoms but does not reduce the disease itself. Bricks of tea are used as currency in Tsu Shima.
Art:Art in Tsu Shima is only done by specific individuals who show talent in the area. They will be subjected to harsh training that keeps their skills up and honed. They create murals inside their homes, chisel statues honoring Shima and melt symbols into rock, metal and wood tools. With the advancement of technology, they now use digital art, however physical art is still valued more than it. Tsu Shiman art style is similar to ancient and modern day japan's art style.

Values: Bravery
Traditions: It is tradition for women to prepare a meal just for themselves on the first day of the third month. It's supposed to be a symbol of empathy and kindness to the self and it's usually part of a religious ritual or festivity that can last for a week.
Art: Motifs of war and peace are prevalent
Architecture: Many grand buildings and monuments have been built in something similar to European Renaissance style to honour the past and to help focus the minds of future generations.
City planning: Cities date back to the middle ages and grew organically with little planning. What is present in all the major cities, however, is a foreign quarter, where non-Wohcaysteiners live and work.
What is their version of the ideal place and situation? The restoration of the Holy Empire as a fully sovereign entity and the reunification of its splintered successor states.
