White house down literally had a bunch of racist militia dudes take over the white house to try and glass the middle east.

Random question out of pure curiosity, how many of your nations have legalized cannabis and in what year?

I never once connected those dots

Fair enough. This one seems reminiscent of a communist african nation based off the flag

this might be a mandela affect thing but I also remember like 4 snow white movies coming out in quick succession

some exciting pond news: no frog has been sighted, but a croak has been reported at the pond I dug last summer so it looks like it's been discovered

The huntsman and stuff like that

I'm not sure it has ever been illegal in Nhoor, but Nhoor drug legislation is extremely confusing already without having consumed any drugs.

Westmoor Isles wrote:Random question out of pure curiosity, how many of your nations have legalized cannabis and in what year?

IC or OOC?
IC it's illegal, although it might be available under a perscription.
OOC it's illegal, but available with a perscription.

Doesn't Athara Magarat have a dispatch for this exact question?

Westmoor Isles wrote:Random question out of pure curiosity, how many of your nations have legalized cannabis and in what year?

Illegal in all states of Aprosia

Westmoor Isles wrote:Random question out of pure curiosity, how many of your nations have legalized cannabis and in what year?

Pretty much illegal in Hyukai except for some tribes up in the north

So I'm tweaking my military dispatches, starting with the Air Force dispatch.


Air Defence Force
"Inter Terram Et Stellas" / "Between the Earth and Stars"

The Alteran Air Defence Force (A.D.F.) is Altera's aerial warfare force.
It was formed towards the beginning of the 20th Century in 1921 in a bid to innovate
its defence forces. Since its formation, the A.D.F. has taken a significant role in
Altera's power projection, acting as the country's first line of defence.

    The Alteran Air Defence Force (A.D.F.) mission is to support the objectives of the Alteran Armed Forces which are to "provide the capabilities needed: to ensure the security and defence of the Alteran Republics' and overseas territories, including against terrorism; to support the Government’s foreign policy objectives particularly in promoting international peace and security".

    The A.D.F. describes its mission statement as "... [to provide] An agile, adaptable and capable Air Force that is second to none, and that makes a decisive air power contribution in support of the Alteran Defence Mission". The mission statement is supported by the A.D.F.'s definition of air power, which guides its strategy. Air power is defined as "the ability to project power from the air and space to influence the behaviour of people or the course of events".

    Today the Alteran Republics' Air Defence Force maintains an operational fleet of various types of aircraft, described by the A.D.F. as being leading-edge in terms of technology. This largely consists of fixed-wing aircraft, including: fighter and strike aircraft, airborne early warning and control aircraft, aerial refuelling aircraft and strategic and tactical transport aircraft. The majority of the A.D.F.'s rotary-wing aircraft form part of the tri-service Joint Rotor Command in support of ground forces. Most of the A.D.F.'s aircraft and personnel are based in Altera, with many others serving on operations or at long-established overseas bases.

    Although the A.D.F. is the principal Alteran air power arm, the Alteran Republics' Maritime Defence Force and the Alteran Ground Defence Force also deliver air power which is integrated into the maritime, littoral and land environments.

Still a WIP, but welcome any feedback; particularly the layout of the graphics at the bottom. Do they look alright in that format? Should they be in a table format instead (rows of 2 or 3)? Not sure what I want at the moment.

Westmoor Isles wrote:Random question out of pure curiosity, how many of your nations have legalized cannabis and in what year?

Depends on the partition. It's fully illegal in the partitions of Knunston, Manchanto and Cattahallie, it's legal under some circumstances such as with a prescription in another few, but fully legal in most partitions. Unsure of a year

Westmoor Isles wrote:Random question out of pure curiosity, how many of your nations have legalized cannabis and in what year?

I kind of figure its always been legal. I don't really think the Tsunter government legislates on such matters,

Westmoor Isles wrote:Random question out of pure curiosity, how many of your nations have legalized cannabis and in what year?

Historically, there has been no effort to control or criminalize cannabis. Socially, it has been used for a long time from religious practice, medical and recreational use. There is no reason for us to ban it. For formalities, the Recreational Drugs Board was formed around the early 1900s classified cannabis as Class A, which means recreational use is legal without a limit (unless you literally have huge stacks of it but that would just earn you increased supervision by the Government). Cultivation of cannabis is legal with a license from the state. It can freely be purchased in certain shops, in markets, and in the many clubs and bars across Roendavar. We even have a deity of recreational drugs and cannabis is one of the three substances they hold.

Roendavar can provide it. The Free City of Dociara at the time controlled one of the oldest universities (i Pilonas-Ecanthrein) and it was one of the centers for discussion about leftist and/or liberal values for the time. So yeah, if your foreign royal wants to be educated by a largely progressive and leftist independent city-state for its time, just TG me.

Wowowowow Roendavar has universities?

The bottom looks like a checkerboard with pictures. There no image links for me, IDK if that's a problem or you just haven't put them in yet. It's very attractive.

Well yeah, several of them are stealth fighters

I tweaked the layout since I posted that message on the train on my phone. Was planning on making new graphics for them this evening ... but then I fell asleep on the sofa waiting for my shopping to be delivered.

Original layout had the lineart graphics in a different layout.
