"So, how'd you came up with Stanier?"
"So how many nations you have, can you give me a description of them?"
"Sicuro, I can tell ya, I manage four nations, two that are in the same universe, one that is in an alternate timeline of the first universe, and another one that is in a completely distinct universe that pretty much resembles ours, here's some descriptions:
Stanier: The first account I've ever created on NS, it's basically a nation located in Ireland and run by the Mafia under the guise of a highly liberal democracy, led by President/Don Sing Antonio Scaletta; the grandson of the protagonist of Mafia 2 Vito Scaletta. Mafia activity goes unnoticed both by the citizens and the authorities, mainly because the Mafia treats the citizenship and tourists with respect and pulls favors for them, but they expect the same in return. Stanier contains heavy influence from the Mafia videogame series and the Grand Theft Auto series.
Mardito Maduro: Located in the same universe as Stanier, it’s a nation located in Portugal that has recently been taken over by a highly retarded Venezuelan immigrant that looks pretty much like a mixture of Nicolás Maduro and Hugo Chávez, promising a bright future for Venezuelan immigrants, this man has managed to make Portugal an economic power by the use of 'Oil diplomacy' as he calls it, despite being a reasonably nice nation, rampant corruption problems plague the government, although they are able to give up power willingly, unlike the Venezuelan government they were fleeing from. This nation is meant to be a satire of Venezuelan politics and history as a whole.
Au stanier (Alternate universe Stanier): Located in a parallel timeline, the Mafiosi Stanierian administration has been deposed in a coup d'état, being replaced with a theocratic socialist dictatorship, led by no one less than Sing Scaletta's predecessor, Isaac Vapid, now a religious zealot of the nation's car praising religion, Vapidism.
The City-State of Palmont: Located in a universe apart from the one where Stanier is located, this secretive city-state located in a peninsula somewhere on the North American west coast surrounded by canyons, has recently separated itself from the USA and it's looking to prove itself to the international community, and its police force is one of the most efficient in the world. This nation is mainly based off Need For Speed: Carbon, although there are influences from other iterations of the Need For Speed series such as The Run, Undercover, Payback and the 2010 Hot Pursuit.

"Where do you get the templates for your factbooks?, do you make them?"
"Well, for the nation overview factbooks I use a simplified version of the one created by Ponderosa, while in the other hand characters use a heavily modified and simplified version of the template created by Napoleonic Europa, I got a complaint once about removing the credits on the templates and how I steal the templates, but that I use the template doesn't mean I made it and besides, when people ask me about how I make my factbooks I always redirect them to the forum threads of the templates so they can copy the code, so in short, I ain't stealing nothing"
"Me salió del forro e' las bolas marico... OK, seriously, I came up with the crazy idea after I found NS with some pals of the Spanish GTA Wiki, at first Stanier was your average liberal democracy but after a while, it was getting boring, and I was playing Mafia 2 at the time and then I told myself 'What if Vito ran my nation?, espera, it can't be Vito, otherwise I'll have to return Stanier to the 1960s... What if it was Vito's grandson?... Eso chamo, Lima, eres un genio'. and that's how I came up with Stanier's current canon"
"So, the GTA Wiki right?, I'm guessing that's why the capital's called Tahoma, the currency Asea, the national religion Vapidism and the nation's called f***ing Stanier"
"That's pretty much it... All praise the Vapid Stanier!, also, calmati idiota"
"So, which are your political ideals?, does Stanier reflect them?"
"Actually, Stanier doesn't reflect my political ideals, a matter of fact, I am an Authoritarian Capitalist with some Liberal leanings, here's a couple of quotes that paint an image of my political beliefs in the most important of matters:
Look, the only leftist ideology that works is Social Democracy, why? Because my country lived under that ideology for forty years and guess what happened? Prosperity, peace and even more prosperity. Anything further than that is doomed to fail. As proven with socialism, also in my country.
I don't get LGBT activists, sure, the lifestyles of the people they defend are seen as taboo and they are heavily judged, but do they really gotta act like a triggered feminist or SJW for every mishap? For f**ks sake! Get a grip and get on with it! That's how I deal with Chavistas and women!
Why the hell would we legalize pot for? So drug dealers can go legit? So people become deadbeats 'cause their heads are so high up in the clouds they can't get anything done? Trust me, marihuana is bad news, be it legal or illegal.
Hey, wanna know why leftists despise capitalism? Because it means anyone, with enough effort, can become wealthier than them. In short: Things like Socialism and communism are selfish and egoist ideologies for those who don't like people having a better life than them. Think about it son.
Look, I don't oppose democracy, but you have to understand that it has its flaws. Because politicians always have ulterior motives, and constant elections means that anyone, be it good-or-bad intentioned, can get a shot of power. And you must think about what happens when people go mad with power: they turn into heartless dictators who only care about remaining in the seat until they die and that ain't good.
A government must have a strong understanding of its society. Otherwise, it's doomed to fail before it even gets going.
I don't want to say I advocate for government surveillance. But I do, because if a government knows what its citizens are thinking or suffering, it means it can put hands to work so it can upgrade the life quality of those who rely on it
The suppression of free speech is despicable, let me put it like this: If you are a father of three and you force your children to not bother you with their needs, critiques, and suggestions. How the hell are you supposed to know when they are hungry, sick or unhappy so they aren't depressed or worse yet, dead?
Raising children in religious values is, in my opinion, something ideal. Why? Because it gives them a basic feel of what's good, what's bad and how to act when they see someone in need. Take notice of how some of those 'Faith in humanity restored' moments can be easily grounded in religious values. But sure, we have to edit some scriptures a bit, because if teach everything by the book we'll have people from different religions, atheists, and LGBT movements up in arms because they're either being excluded or because we're teaching hate.
Look, I'm honestly not a fan of cross-dressers and transgender people, I get their reasons to be the way they are, so I tolerate them. But honestly, they should've gotten counseling before going through the whole surgical procedures or wearing skirts in public
If ya wanna know anything else. Send me a TG, OK? I'm a pretty open guy"
"So, how do you feel about you country's situation"
*Brings a suitcase outta nowhere* "Qué la vaina está tan arrecha que me voy a ir pal coño"
"Do you drink?, like, alcohol?"
"Si me brindan... Well, actually I do and great part of my income goes towards booze, that I save up to drown my pains later on"
"Does your drinking have any influence, negative or positive, in your life?"
"Wait, I'm too drunk to answer that..."
"¿Maduro es mardito?"
"Can you describe your country in images?"
"It's gonna be hard but imma try..."

I imagine a nerdy gamer version of Tony Montana. "say hello to my li'l friend" shows body pillow (Emoji de una carita que saca la lengua)
Northern South American, probably secretly trying to rally the world against Venezuela's Socialist Government (Which is working btw), not that interested in politics otherwise.
A Venezuelan, 15 years old, who likes watching mafia movies a lot, and would rather want to see Maduro overthrown, and that Venezuela would turn towards liberalism, or at least social democracy.
De mi reino, 17 yo, has a fedora, ehhhhhh, that's about it i think.
Spanish, 17 years old, likes guns.
I'd reckon Stanier is driven by an older Italian-Irish dude who might've at one point been a used car salesman. Leans towards liberal/leftist politics IRL, but he doesn't really care about it all that much. Has tons of friends, an uncommon appreciation for gangster flicks, and listens to hella electro-swing.
All told, a pretty cool guy. (Emoji de una carita sonriente)
