Blue Nagia is very similar! As most people choose to live in forest communes with as little technology as they can get away with, television is not very popular.
However, there is a news channel (NNQ, Neela Naga Qaanat or Blue Nagia Channel) that runs daily from 6am-10pm. It's mostly seen on public screens, as few people have their own television.
Radio is popular in coastal areas, where small, wind-up transistor radios can be taken aboard ships. MA (Mahaatat Altaqs or Weather Station) is the channel of choice here. There's also RY (Radiu Yl, Night Radio) that broadcasts radio dramas, quite well loved. Families will sometimes make an activity of listening to these before bed.
Mine is the jaguar, and that's not (just) because it's an informal national animal of Brazil. Jaguars are very unique, they're basically that edgy smart reserved anti-hero every anime has, except the big cat version. They rarely try to intimidate their prey like tigers and lions, and also unlike them they bite the skull of their prey, causing an instant death, rather than the neck. Jaguars don't like to make a mess. I've never seen one in the wild, sadly (or maybe thankfully).
On second place... I don't know, the güiña. They're just so tiny and round!
Aw, that's the first time I'd heard of the güiña! I had to look them up.
I'm a fan of snow leopards, personally. You don't see too many cold-climate cats, and the way they carry their tails in their mouths is so precious.
So I have a question. I have a ton of ECONOMIC stuff banned, like computers, cars, video games, etc. etc. but my economy is reasonably good. If I unbanned everything, my economic freedom would ~probably~ get into the higher range, right? If that's true, then I would probably shift from a civil lovefest to anarchy, but wouldn't that be prevented by my tax rate of like 65%? Would it be possible to be an anarchy with a tax rate of 65%? or is there something I am missing
The tax rate doesn't affect a nation's classification ("Anarchy," "Civil Rights Lovefest," etc). The only thing that plays a role with that is your freedoms (Civil Rights, Political Freedoms, Economic Freedoms). And you do appear to have a good chance to get classified as an Anarchy if you remove those policy bans.
For the first time I think ever, in light of recent regional pushes, I have seriously considered the current WA motion and voted against. I believe this resolution is paradoxical, as it promises to not impose restrictions on members yet then proceeds to do precisely that. Also, wouldn't this technically ban larping? Am I reading this correctly or what? Either way, against, and voted on actual opinions this time.
i've seen the puma/cougar in the wild a couple of times, where i grew up in the sierras in california, where we call them mountain lions.
It appears there was a minor server shutdown. Only lasted like 30 minutes, and it happens much more frequently than one would expect. We're lucky the site itself didn't crash and forums still worked. Thursday is usually the day this kind of stuff happens, like if they need to fix a bug or change something they do it on Thursday.
I’ve never seen a wild fox either (despite living in its natural habitat area) but seen wild wolves and rabbits instead. The only popular animals left to see are aforementioned fox and a wild bear which is a doubtful thing to wish to do. Even though my mother has encountered them all, I wasn’t around at the time. Apart from that, I’ve been lucky to see various small forest/field inhabitants such as snakes, hamsters, mice, and such. They all are adorable and cute in spite of the fact that some of them are pretty dangerous for humans.
Nonetheless, meeting wild animals is something special for me as for a “city kid”, I feel connection with the nature and diversity of one. It’s so cool when you walk in the woods and a random squirrel comes closer and you pass your hand and the squirrel touches it, it feels like a tiny but precious magic moment.
I grew up with a fox that liked to come out and hang around in the neighbor's yard. It started as a four-legged fox, but ended up as a three-legged fox (and amazingly survived that way for years) after tangling with a local Great Horned Owl. They are handsome creatures.
Irrelevant to anyone but me, but Recife is currently underwater. The rain is finally beginning to stop now after 12+ hours of continuous rain. And Recife is a city-sized raft floating over a swamp, so everything always floods (there's a neighborhood near where I live literally called "drowned ones"). And the tides are starting to rise so it's about to get worse.
So much for the Brazillian Venice, ay?
I like the message and the design, especially how "lose it" looks like a hole in the picture
