And now Cildania can be defined as Maltese.
Me pinguem et nitidum bene curata cute vises,
Cum ridere voles, Epicuri de grege porcum

Please note the changes to the OP (see below). Culturally Open nations may now adopt Nation Descriptions.

Aquinas wrote:The Cultural Protocols Index includes short descriptions of the cultures of all the Culturally Protected nations. Please bear in mind these descriptions are not "official" in themselves; it is the information contained in the Cultural Protocols themselves which are binding in terms of the game rules.

We would appreciate feedback from players about these descriptions and how they could be improved. Remember the descriptions need to be short, though.

*

Culturally Open nations are not bound by the culture rules, but it is possible for players to pass a non-enforceable Nation Description bill outlining the nation's suggested cultural character, which - at Moderation's discretion - can then be linked to the nation's entry in the Cultural Protocols Index. A short entry can also be added for the description, based on the Nation Description bill.

A Nation Description bill must be passed by a 2/3rds majority of all players with seats (not just those with seats who vote), and at least one of the players supporting the bill must have been continuously active in the nation (ie. no inactivations) for at least 1 month. A notification should then be made on this thread, so Moderation can update the Cultural Protocols Index as appropriate.

Culturally Protected nations which move to Culturally Open status will automatically have their previous Cultural Protocol treated as their Nation Description.

Players in Culturally Open nations may update or change their Nation Description simply by going through the same process of passing another Nation Description bill. Alternatively, they may withdraw their Nation Description altogether by passing an appropriate motion with a simple majority of players with seats (ie. more players with seats vote for it than against it), with the condition that at least one of the players supporting the withdrawal must have been currently continuously active in the nation (ie. no inactivations) for at least 1 month. Again, a notification should then be made on this thread, so Moderation can update the Cultural Protocols Index as appropriate.

About Likatonia....

Our description in the index is simply 'American'. I personally, and I assume the rest of our country, would prefer if it mentioned something about the fact that it is more undeveloped, poor, agrarian etc than modern America. If in the description that could be quickly mentioned it would be great rather than having some players confused as to why this country that is meant to be USA is poor. Thanks very much.

I have changed the description from "American" to "American (less economically developed)". If you (or anybody else) can think of a better-sounding description, let us know - although bear in mind the descriptions in the Index need to be very brief.

Its worth pointing out that the actual Cultural Protocol document linked to in the index describes Likatonia as "undeveloped", although I appreciate of course that not all players perusing the Index would immediately notice that.

How about "18th Century USA (agrarian and underdeveloped)" Wasn't that the original idea for Likatonia (unless I'm confusing it with hts's early America idea). "18th Century" is more evocative and clearer to me as an outsider unfamiliar with Likatonia.

19th century, not 18th.

American (agrarian/underdeveloped, pre-Civil War feel)


How about that?
