Why is every major region in the game dominated by human nations? Where is the creativity? We could have a nation all composed by elves, robots and yes even furries. But all we have are these vanilla human nations most of the time. :eyebrow: Discuss.

Yet another question I did not expect to find

Northern Dosletofe: Also known as “Disshërlānd”, is a wealthy Northern European country situated on the southern part of the “Svalbard” archipelago. Noted for its high quality of living, wages, the country also boasts a very complex digital and educational infrastructure and is the one of the few nations to have its own digital currency and to recognize AI’s as residents. “Equality and respect” are the basis of the country’s smart and healthy populace, symbolic of the country’s National Animal and emblem, the “Arctic Swan”.

We need more non-human nations. Maybe if theres enough of us there can be a region just for us! I dont mean to discriminate against human nations so they can also join. But it would miss the point if most of them were all human.

For RP purposes, majority species is what you'd commonly call "furry" but are mostly feline/canine variants; then there's the elves being a weird sort of "minority aristocracy" in charge over the "oppressed majority"; and then there's the humans, an actual minority and not very notable in either politics or society. Jury's still out as to whether or not the nation's leader is an actual living person or a sophisticated computer program mimicking the original leader that first united the nation. I haven't quite hashed out the details yet, because I can't be bothered.

Oh, and robots. They probably make up the actual majority of the "non-RP" population, but they mostly exist to confuse the World Census bean counters. High SciAd and all, you know.

Look at regions with the 'Multi-Species' tag, they might have higher proportions of nations inhabited by non-'human' sapients.
The Confrederated Clans (and other Confrederated Bodys) of the Free Bears of Bears Armed
(includes The Ursine NorthLands) Demonym = Bear[s]; adjective = ‘Urrsish’.
Population = just under 20 million. Economy = only Thriving. Average Life expectancy = c.60 years. If the nation is classified as 'Anarchy' there still is a [strictly limited] national government... and those aren't "biker gangs", they're traditional cross-Clan 'Warrior Societies', generally respected rather than feared.

I had a nation of pet rocks, but it was no fun. They didn't do anything. They just sat there in stone silence.

My nation of elder things in a land of impossible geometries dong that which man is not meant to know didn't have any relevant issues (relevant to the elder things) ever come up.

The nation that was a slice of bread trying to escape the kitchen soon got stale.

Human beings and their political interactions, and dealing with the unintended consequences in myriads of ways is pretty fun.
