Same here. Although, not as fascinating as yours probably, Bhum.

Me and my grandpa still kind of follow the old shamanist stuff. Grandmother is devout Hindu. Mom's side is Sikh (not culturally, her grandfather became a convert in India). Dad is a hardcore atheist and the only non-veg in our family. Our next door neighbors (who are also distant uncle's family) are Protestants as is most of the rest of our extended family. Most neighbors are Buddhists.

I went to a Roman Catholic-run school as a bonus.

Cool! I find the Mughal Empire to be a super interesting period of history.

Yup. Indic or not, I am ready to barge myself into history of other nations (often violently). The Khas are supposed to be Indic/Central Asian-ish. Southern AM is particular is very Indo-Gangetic (similar cultures, names, etc). I won't lie. The various Khas-Kirati and Argean Ipachi tribes of AM are just copy-paste Nepali, North Indian and Northeast Indian peoples; and I haven't even bother to change their names...(AM lazy...)

ICly, Mitravarta is the definitely Indic nation here. He is OOCly a fellow Pahari brother (his origins lie in Uttarakhand while I live in Nepal).

Edit: RIP Mitravarta is gone now...

Speaking of people who look like nerds here, I am pretty sure I look very nerdy.

Nothing I love more than sitting here, trying to force the will into myself to write a factbook as I watch youtube on the side

EDIT: That's not to say either of these sects don't have significant schools that emphasize tolerance

It's just that you know, the more tolerant schools seem to have been left by the wayside in recent decades?

So is being nice, but you wouldn't know anything about it?

Something I never thought I'd see said about one of my delegates to the league, almost brings a tear to your eye

I mean... It's true, we should find a solution... Which om sure we can do amongst ourselves... Not so sure about Athara Magarat though... That's a never-ending dumpster fire...

Aizcona wrote:That seems like they will have never ending gridlock

Yes, that is a good description. Government coalition talks take years, literally. One of the big problems is that parties are divided on the national level as well. It's like you would have democratic and republican parties like in the US, except that there are 50 different ones, organised per state without national coordination, which all have entirely different programmes, so that's 100 different parties. Congress would never be able to take any decisions again. Luckily Belgium isn't divided in 50 parts but only three regions, but they have a lot more different parties in every regions.

Among my fellow geoficticians/nation builders in the Netherlands creating a fictional Belgium is somewhat taboo :)

Yeah, pretty much. They had a good run, tho.

Cool! I was planning to base my nation off of various South Indian cultures. OOCly, I'm ethnically Telugu although I've lived in the United States my whole life. I can barely speak the language, haha.

From today, we are having a new map...

https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/276069920901431318/712336515203596358/mjmjxgq9cmz41.png

That territory had been called "disputed" by past govs. I never had to draw the tip when I was in school. (Map says 2010...like I said, "disputes territory")

https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/276069920901431318/712336842514628668/x1p5d43lomz41.png

Already got memes as well...

Honestly, this is jacksh!t statement. Those territories are de facto under Indian control with Indian roads and buildings. And people who now identify as Indian...But guess the gov gotta keep nationalist propaganda running.

I would really like to smoke what my PM is smoking for he seems to think rest of the world will recognize his claims.

Perfect spot for a US airbase to... secure the peace.

Hi there,
Just joined this region.

How did you hear about The Western Isles?
-Found it looking through "national sovereigntist" tag
What's some information about yourself (hobbies, interests, country, etc.)?
-Belgian living in Spain, mainly interested in military history, politics,
What kind of nation are you trying to make?
-I go issue by issue, pick whichever suits my irl opinions.

I mention Belgium once and suddenly Belgians are everywhere!

Just kidding of course; welcome to the Western Islands. Please note that although you are welcome to use NS issues to build your nation, NS stats aren't recognised here (e.g. Nhoor has just an acceptable amount of 24 million inhabitants instead of the several billion that are mentioned on Nhoor's main page).

Weinam you!
Welcome back.

Y'all I'm confused :( what exactly is the history/origin of humanity in the Western Isles? How did cultures develop and spread? Are the inhabitants of the Western Isles migrants from real-life countries on Earth, or is the Western Isles its own "thing"?

Sorry for all these questions lol, I'm dumb and have a hard time wrapping my mind around this.

Vijayarajya wrote:Are the inhabitants of the Western Isles migrants from real-life countries on Earth, or is the Western Isles its own "thing"?

Yes.

Don't think about it too hard, there's some space-time fŻckery involved.

Basically however you envision unless you cooperate/integrate your history with someone else.

Did somebody say warp fŻckery?

I personally always imagined TWI as Narnia-like.
