Since this might be contentious given the status of the composer, I think our Bach would've been Hulstrian because he was very, very Lutheran and you can feel that about his music. That eliminates most of the Dundorfian-speaking world, which is either Ordist or Patriarchal. Hulstria, with its deeply Luthoran culture, would probably have been the most likely environment a Terran Bach would originate in.

You might've overlooked this one, Polites.

Been looking around for an equivalent for the King James Only Movement. The one I've come up with for now is the King Harold Only Movement, for which I've written:

Puritans believe in the religious supremacy of the Luthori language, which, to borrow the words of Bert Engels, they regard as "the language of angels and of Heaven to come". Other languages are regarded as inferior and generally discouraged. Certain languages, such as the native languages in New Englia, are regarded as positively Satanailic.

Adhering to Bert Engles' "King Harold Only" doctrine, they believe the translation of the bible into Luthori ordered by King Harold III of Utagia (part of modern-day Luthori) in 1249 is the inerrant Word of God, and that all other versions or translations of the bible are faulty. Puritans occasionally conduct book-burnings of non-King Harold bibles and other books they disagree with. The upset this caused led Leonard Engles to demand that such book burning events should not be photographed, televised or otherwise depicted, hoping that this would limit the offence caused to people not just in New Englia, but all around Terra. However, in the long-term, this injunction appears to have only made the book burnings a more highly-charged and "mystical", almost sacred ceremony for the participants.


If this can be improved, or if there is anything better or more "established" out there, then I'll be happy to go along with that instead.

From the International Society for the Study of Terran Civilisations:
Serbo-Croatian (language)= Tokundian.
Scandinavian= Kazulian, Altfolk.
Germanic= Dundorfic.
North Germanic languages= East Dundorfic languages.
Swede= Befäskar.
Dane= Skrigere.
Faroe Islander= Doyingar.

Understand if you don't want to add all of these but they're there for you to make a judgement.

@Phil Piratin: added
@jamescfm: added "Altfolk", and "(East) Dundorfic". Not adding "Tokundian", "Befäskar", "Skrigere", and "Doyingar" yet since they might conflict with current Cultural Protocols a bit.
