STEP RIGHT UP AND BUILD YOUR VERY OWN, CUSTOMIZED, STUFFED WITH LOVE (OR BLOODSHED) COUNTRY!

Don't be alarmed, ladies and germs. It's very simple. Allow me to show you!


*Yes, show us!*

All you have to do is fill out these categories right down here and before you know it, you'll have your very own nation!

Country's name:
Flag description:
Capitol:
National anthem:
Geographical details:
History:
What your country is well known for:

*Is it really that simple??*

Why, yes it is! Make up anything you like. It doesn't have to be on Earth. It can be on some far away planet, in a parallel universe, underwater, in the sky, wherever you want. There are no limits!

*Ooooh, ahhh, how terrifying!*

Not at all! Just fill out those basic details and you're good as gold! Of course, my dear audience, don't be afraid of adding any important categories to that little format up there. Go crazy with it!

*Really??*

Yes, really. But let me get out of the way first. We don't want to relive last year's catastrophe. *shivers* My eyebrows still haven't completely grown back yet...

Anyway! Good luck!


(As for that anthem part, just pick your favorite song or a song you think fits your country. Or write one from scratch! Do whatever you want with your life!)

(Kbye)

RedPath | 853 comments Country's name: Kongsten

Flag description: It has a royal blue backround with a black, triangle border and a red dot in the middle. It signifies how the dark, overbearing mountains surround the regal country in all directions. The red is for the capitol, which is in the center of Kongsten.

Capitol: Crolone

National anthem: Prayer Of The Refugee -Rise Against ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-SQGO... )

Geographical details: Kongsten is a country that sits in a basin completely surrounded by the Black Mountains. Since it's below sea level, there are quite a few natural springs of water and aquifers and lakes. Their soil is very poor, so most of their food is meat and whatever grows in the mountains.

History: Many thousands of years ago, there was a great and terrible war. In fact, it was so terrible that all events are catagorized as "pre-war" and "post-war". So many people were displaced and kicked out of their countries that the population of war refugees outnumbered any others. So, when the war ended, all of the refugees banded together and conquered the Black Mountains in order to create a country in its cradle. The area had been untouched by the world and it seemed like the ideal place for a country founded by victims of war.

What your country is well known for: Its architecture, history, superior masonry, and wool products.

Geographical details:Above ground Carjealeau is covered in volcanos and lava.Few plants and animals live here.Underground is completely different.You know those volcanic rocks that if you look at them from one angle you can see through them.When you're underground on Carjealeau the rock above you is like that.It is very tropical except for the Golden Desert to the south,the Constellation Mountian Range in the north, and the Great Plains, which lie between the Constellation Mountians and the Black Hole Sea to the east.There is no oxygen and four kinds of 'water', gold water in the Golden Desert, silver water in the Moonlight River to the north, black water in the Black Hole Sea, and lava water on the surface.Except for a few forests,Forest of Roses, Forest of Shadows and Starfruit Forest, the land is mostly flat and good for farming. There are only two notable islands in the Black Hole Sea.
History:Its mostly a peaceful planet but recently there was a war called The Twelve Thousand Years War beacause it was three days short of being twelve thousand years long. Now the people,Carjealeauns, are trying to make a friendship with the people who attacked them, Carbealeauns from the planet Carbealeau.

message 26: by Edward (new)

Edward (edwardtheresejr) Country's name: Mauchi
Flag description: A tree showing both the branches and leaves above ground and the roots below ground. A simplified emblem skips the leaves, though it isn't exactly supposed to look dead, but more of reaching out in every direction.
Capitol: Pautra, though they don't have much to choose from.
National anthem: NA
Geographical details: Has varied widely throughout history, once being the greatest empire in Yuni history, but now just including one cluster of mountains, a little bit of sea, a lot of little rivers and woods, and up against a huge, ancient, and dangerous forest that no country claims as its own.
History: The oldest country in the world, but rarely the strongest. Most of their politics, particularly after the decline of their empire, was heavily decentralized to the point where imperial expansion could no longer be possible. They've never had an official standing army, although there were pleanty of volunteer militia groups and trained law-officers that could double as soldiers. In times of war or crisis all the men and most of the childless women stood up in defence. Most enemies only knew how to deal with unorganized or heavily organized armies; they didn't know how to deal with intuitively organized neighbors. Family life, above all, is cherished in Mauchi. They haven't built more than a dozen remotely large cities in their entire history.
What your country is well known for: Surviving all of recorded history and still surviving, surround by enemies, as one of the smallest countries in the world.
