Give the AN a dose of Culture Shock
•The Iranian state holds de facto suzerainty over much of West Asia and its influence spreads to Central, South Asia. For example: Afghanistan is a monarchy under an Ekhnukhid monarch who swears fealty to the King of Kings or Queen of Queens whilst maintaining internal autonomy.
•We see our "success" as being able to have children with baseline humans, which itself implies a desire to assimilate Otherness.Addendum: Shortly explained, the Palmeran neko are xenophobes who want to out-breed foreigners by absorbing them. Presumably, something different to cosmopolitan Astorians.
•While very few Tarvelians are vegetarians, most are effectively vegan for about half the year in observance of Orthodox fasts. Meat, fish, and dairy are abstained from and in favor of grains and shellfish. But, really, shellfish is a constant anyway.
•Antarcticans have never seen an anthro before. In fact, even many animal species, such as polar bears and blue whales, were driven into extinction hundreds of years ago.
•In Santamar, The most popular greeting in an informal setting is just a simple movement of the head while looking at each other.
•Our country (and our entire world, to an extent) is generally more introverted, with extroverts there having a bit harder time, as small talk isn't our style that much, really. (That said, there are still tasks, which require more extroversion, and a lot of our people are actually more ambivert - people like hikikomori shut-ins - ed still are outcasts there).
•Hell doesn't have oceans; water is largely confined to lakes, rivers, wetlands, and waterfalls. Without oceans, or any bodies of water large enough to serve in place of oceans, along with the general subterranean environment of Hell, hurricanes don't happen. The most common natural disaster is actually fires.
•There is a state faith in Goldenson. It is recommended, though no clergyman are given any state status.
•We Rasenna will crucify unfaithful wives, as they are those who bear children. There is a three-strike rule in place.
•Well we do have furries....but they arent talked about.
•Nonhumans are explicitly forbidden from holding public office in Kyria. As such, only humans can rise through the sociopolitical ladder.
•Good ol' Skyhooked, while has extreme political and personal freedoms, it's also pretty militaristic and almost 90% of us possess guns.
Based on AN's national animal, how do they deal with traitors?
•Forced to watch this 7 second clip over and over and over and over again ad nausea, at a loud volume, with the traitor's eyes eyes wired open, whilst the traitor is strapped into the chair for 17 hours straight. No food, no beverages, and no toilet breaks. The clip will be repeated for the entire 17 hour duration. (the clip in question is the part of this video which runs from 1:25 to 1:32).
•Mauled to death.
•Expose the traitors to cute animals until it changes their ways.
•Force them to smile eternally like quokkas do.
•Killed by the pure cuteness of this creature.
•Release them immediately to their family's embrace, wondering what happened to get them arrested.
•Overexposure to cuteness, resulting in death.
•They hug em. :3
What political beliefs does AN hold in real life? (II)
•Third way (not Third Positionist!) with center left progressive social views (equality, diversity, and tolerance) and center right economics (lassez-faire, less regulations, etc.). Pacifistic and hates capital punishment.
•Probably centre-left to DemSoc beliefs. Mapping them to the US I could see them voting for Bernie.
