Tsurani, Esq.
My Dear Tsurani,

Firstly, I'd like to humbly and warmly welcome you, Tsurani, to our community's forum.The Ascendancy is a Collegial Theodemocratic Feudal Republic of planets across The Metaverse that is connected by a series of portals as divined by The Prophet. Praise Be The People!

Secondly, I'd like to inform you of our policies on citizenship due to their eccentric nature; you're given partial citizenship status; for, you, as an Outlander, are automatically selected a Fiefdom to be a part of, but afterwords you may choose to join another one and leave the one selected for you. As an Outlander, you are given the right to vote for your fiefdom's representative, and have some other basic rights, but are not granted full citizenship. This applies to you even if your sole aim was to represent your organization within The Ascendancy. To obtain full citizenship, you must engage in meritorious actions to earn Merit points wherein you purchase a title of nobility to obtain full citizenship status; for a more in-depth information on this, look here: http://ascendia.jfbs.net/index.php?act=Help&CODE=01&HID=17 . If you are a dignitary from a foreign realm, please look here to apply: http://ascendia.jfbs.net/index.php?showtopic=63

Below are questions merely meant to spark conversation to break the ice, and for all of us to get to know each other a lot better. If you don't feel comfortable answering them, and/or wish to skip a few, then that shall be completely fine.


How did you come up with your nation's name?

What form of government does your nation have?

Does your nation's government reflect your political beliefs?

If not, do you hold any political beliefs that you wish to share?

Do you have any fields of study that interest you? If so, which ones?

Is there any form of cultural media -- books, shows, games, et cetera -- that you enjoy? If any, care to elaborate?

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Do you have any hobbies?

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

Before I forget, I must inform you that if you have any questions, please feel free to ask them below.

Sincerely,

Woo, loads of questions! *Rolls sleeves up*

How did you come up with your nation's name?

Athetal is the name of the homeworld of the species I made up to populate it - the Sithrimni. Since they're telepaths, they have no natural vocal language, and thus the name actually comes from the language of another race I made up, the Xin'Ta'Faxi. Basically Ath means Home, Tal means Sister and 'e' is a connective, which in this contexts means 'of', so Athetal means Home of [the] Sister[s]. Oh, and it is one of a binary pair, the other planet being the Xin'Ta'Faxi homeworld Xi'Teleath, Holy City/ City Home of the Brothers.

Whilst in NationStates it's called the Serene Republic of Athetal, it's really called the Sithrimni Collective.

What form of government does your nation have?

Perfect democracy/benevolent dictatorship. They're ruled over by the Mind of Sithrim, a group mind, not a hive mind - individual minds and personalities exist, they're not mindless drones. The Mind of Sithrim is a gestalt entity comprised of the collective emotions, thoughts, ambitions, will, etc of the entire species, and has formed its own persona, so that it can be considered a separate sentient being in its own right, hence the benevolent dictatorship. It is a perfect democracy since the Mind is formed from the consensus of the entire population and their views and feelings on a particular matter; every single individual is involved in telepathic 'voting' in which they give voice to their opinions on an issue, allowing the Mind to form a consensus. This occurs regardless of age, gender or any other factor.

Does your nation's government reflect your political beliefs?

It's the closest thing to a Utopian society I could concoct; complete equality, crime is near zero, since the innate telepathic/empathic interplay of the group mind means criminals can feel the anguish caused by crime, war is non-existent, and they never developed any system remotely resembling slavery or capitalism; exploitation of others for monetary gain is an utterly incomprehensible concept - I'm very much a socialist, and this is one of the few ways in which True Communism could exist in a society.

If not, do you hold any political beliefs that you wish to share?

Apart from my views that all humans should be equal, no matter their beliefs, preferences, culture, colour, age, gender, etc? Nothing much to tell - I don't like capitalism much, but no one's every tried to put any other socio-political system in place. I've also got a rather Buddhist outlook - all things in moderation; I greatly dislike extreme views on anything, they tend towards intolerance and pointless division.

Do you have any fields of study that interest you? If so, which ones?

Psychology, history, sociology, religion, politics, philosophy - a lot of things.

Is there any form of cultural media -- books, shows, games, et cetera -- that you enjoy? If any, care to elaborate?

I love reading, especially sci-fi or fantasy - David Eddings, Isaac Asimov, Larry Niven, Iain M Banks, all sorts. I also love RPGs, such as Mass Effect and Dragon Age and strategy games like Civilisation, Homeworld and Total War.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I read, write stories, come up with new ideas for characters, cultures, settings and that sort of thing, I also game a lot and do some more social things like hang out with friends and stuff.

Do you have any hobbies?

See above, I suppose?

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

I'm a student of Psychology, and have just concluded my first year, as I said before stories in my spare time, and I have a few ideas rattling around for a novel or two...
