BETTER DEAD THAN RED, HYDRO

They are not "communist", they are "communal". Its the difference between many per-Colombian Native American societies and Communist Russia or China.

Wait, what's the difference?

Communism is when a government owns everything and is lead by an individual or party. Communalism no one owns anything but are responsible for everything.

To use a family dynamic, in communism the Father rules for the entire family and they would all have to share their toys, clothes and food. In a communal dynamic children would be raised by anyone in the community and have responsibility for not just their won kids but for other families kids.

However mine is a "Communal Meritocracy". Meritocracy this means that talents and accomplishments are rewarded rather than privilege or wealth. Thus a "Communal Meritocracy" would be that the person who is the most accomplished in the community can become the leader. Thus helping each other are the the core of the Wasgo society.

In know its hard to explain but there are key differences.

EDIT: Looks like the Losar and Wasgo will not get along well.

Year 1, Spring

Around the region many nations have grown and the international Community has begun to develop. This marks a new era, the First Year NE.

Wasgo, a community of tribals native to the northern reach of the Aposid River, has established itself along the coast and river. While they possess advanced infrastructure and social services, they are extremely behind schedule of weaponry and metalworking.

The Bernogratzer Federation, established on the Peninsula along side Westcutogo, has acquired some land from their neighbours recently, with much support from the people within.

Westcutogo, on the same Peninsula, has made breakthroughs in weaponry recently, perhaps as a response to the seizing of their territory.

The nation of Losar, far to the south along the Aposid River, has formed in the past few months under a senate and the Chancellor Cyrill Halkalt. The Corporations within it own most the power however, and its unknown how the fledgling nation will perform.

Rumours have it that there is land past the western Mountains, but these ideas have been dismissed for the most part. Other rumours claim the existence of an island to the North East of the region, but all ships to head that way have vanished due to unknown circumstances.



And thus the first season is started. Please colour code your IC text. Any PMs between players must have me CC'd or BCC'd so I can track international communication.

The Royal Bernogratzer Bugle
Liberation of Bernogratz! The Rise of Liberal Nationalism!

Today King Charles Fredrick II announced today that in response to the addition of several counties to the Federation new political reforms will be put in place. After an overwhelming and unprecedented support for the expansion for the union, His Majesty claimed that "Those who fought so bravely to allow Bernogratzers to be allowed to freely live with, trade with and defend their brothers must be rewarded". Whilst the exact nature of these reforms has not yet been revealed, it is expected that they will be passed during the Summer parliament. This was expected by the Liberal Nationalists, who have fought long and hard to unite our people, however their radical beliefs for a democratic republic is not endorsed by His Majesty. Many leaders in the neighbouring areas are anxious, as political reforms in Bernogratz could inspire the masses to radicalise and attempt to overthrow society. However, His Majesty has assured many that society shall remain stable and there will be no mass murder of the aristocracy as long as he is in power.

Join the Federal Army Today! Our King Needs YOU!

As our industry expands and we become richer, there has become more to lose from the destructive actions of those jealous of Bernogratzer Prestige, or worse attempting to conquer and oppress us. But our brave military have allowed us to survive, allow us our freedom and allow us our way of life. If you want to help protect your family, your friends and your town then join the Federal Army today! The wages, 4marks/day will allow you a way of life well above that of the average farmer; but most of all you will be keeping those you love safe, and enabling Bernogratz to achieve the greatness it deserves.

See your town's officer today to be inducted in the world's greatest and most advanced military!

Year 1, Summer
Rumours have it that the country of Westcutogo has called its military to alert, after the recent loss of Pemaquid. It is not uncommon for men in Bernogratz to see patrolling forces over the borders. Merchant ships have been seen headed to Wasgo, presumably laden down with goods.

The borders of Losar have expanded and smoke is seen rising from cities along the mountains. A system of highways has been set up going from city to city, criss-crossing the country side and running through small villages, large portions of which are dedicated to the production of indigo, sandalwood, hemp and wheat. In related news, the capital has expanded, the outer regions quickly sprouting industry owned residential complexes, many of which are over 10 stories tall and house several hundred people. It seems this new nation has had an active first few months.

The nation of Bernogratz remains relatively silent, although ships have been seen on trade routes from the coasts to Wasgo with fully equipped military units on board.

The community of Wasgo remains the same as far as external groups can tell, although some fishermen venturing farther north have seen them pushing beached whales back into the water.

Question: Are there any people living in the uncoloured areas, or is that just unclaimed land?

There are people, but their spread is randomly generated. In future turns NPC nations will pop up from the tribes and whatnot.

EDIT: If you ever want to know the type of life in your national region, shoot me a PM and ask about specific bits of it. I'll tell you what there is and isn't.
