Cyber Nations Forum Rules 07/03/2016Cyber Nations Forum Rules
In the process of registering on this forum, all players--including you--agreed to accept these terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of Invision Power Board. In doing so you essentially signed an electronic contract pledging to have read the rules and TOS and agreeing to follow the rules and TOS as written. It is your continued responsibility to read, follow, and keep up-to-date with the CN rules.
The following are basic guidelines for use of the Cyber Nations community forum. Anyone caught disobeying these guidelines will be issued a warning. The forum staff works on a five warn limit policy unless the situation calls for more appropriate action ranging from a verbal warning to a double warn and suspension to an immediate ban, etc. Just because something is not listed specifically here as illegal does not mean it's allowed. All players are expected to use common sense and are personally responsible for reading the pinned threads found in the Moderation forum. Questions regarding appropriateness or other concerns can be sent via PM to an appropriate moderator. A permanent ban on the forums results in a game ban, and vice versa. Please note that the in-game warn system works on a "three strikes you're out" policy and that in-game actions (including warnings and deletions) may not be appealed. For more information regarding in-game rules please read the Cyber Nations Game Rules. 1.) First Warning
2.) Second Warning
3.) Third Warning (48 hour suspension at the forum)
4.) Fourth Warning (120 hour suspension at the forum)
5.) Permanent Ban Game Bans and Forum Bans
If you receive a 100% warn level on the forums, you will be subject to removal from the forums AND have your nation deleted and banned from the game at moderator(s) discretion. If you are banned in the game, then you will be banned from the forums. Process of Appeals
Players may not appeal any in-game actions. This includes cheat flags, canceled trades, content removals, warn level increases, nation deletion, and bans from the game. Players may appeal individual forum warnings. You may only appeal a warning if you can show with evidence that it was unwarranted or unduly harsh. If a reasonable amount of time has passed (no less than one month and preferably longer) in which you have demonstrated reformed behavior than you may request a warning level reduction. Wasting staff time with inappropriately filed reports and/or unfounded appeals will result in a warn level raise. Repeat incidences will result in a ban from the forum. Bans are permanent. Banned players may appeal to the Senior Staff if they believe grounds exist (very, very rare) in which they state their case with evidence and why explain why they believe they deserve to be allowed back into Cyber Nations. This process is not quick and the investigation into cases may last three minutes or three weeks or more depending on the individual situation. The only place where discussion of moderator action is acceptable is in the appropriate Moderation forum. Posting commentary on or disagreement with moderator action elsewhere will result in a warn level raise. Posting
All posts must be in English. Common phrases in other languages will be allowed so long as they are translated upon request. Foreign languages are permitted in signatures and avatars, however. Certain areas of the forum require you to have a nation in either standard CN or CN:TE. If you have... A SE and a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are allowed to post in either SE or TE areas of the forum. You must have your CN:TE nation name listed in your profile to post in the CN:TE section of the forum.
Just an SE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are not allowed to post in any TE areas of the forum.
Just a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your TE nation name or ruler name. Your must have your CN:TE nation name listed correctly in your profile. You are not allowed to post in any of the SE areas. You are allowed to post in the water cooler, question center and the moderation forums. Other than that, all your posts need to stay in the TE area. Flame/Flamebait/Trolling
Flaming is expressing anger or lobbing insults at a person/player rather than a character, post, idea, etc. Flamebait are posts that are made with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking another user into rule-breaking. Trolling is submitting posts with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking a specific group into rule-breaking. Forum users should not be participating in any of these, and doing so will result in a warning. Topic Hijacking
Hijacking is forcing the current thread discussion off of the original topic and usually results in spam or flame from either side. Forum users found hijacking threads will be given a warning. Repeat Topics
One topic is enough. Repeat topics will be locked, removed, and the author given a warning. Users found creating repeat topics after others were locked by staff will receive a warn raise. Joke Topics
Topics created as a joke are prohibited. Joke topics will be locked and the author warned. This includes topics in which the author is making an announcement “for” another in-game alliance. Humorous threads are permitted; it is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what is merely satire and what is actually a joke topic. Spam
Spam is defined as creating posts or topics containing only contentless material of any kind. Users found spamming will receive a warning. Examples include (but are in no way limited to) posts containing nothing but smilies, "+1", "QFT", "this" any other one/few-word contentless combination, joke threads, or posts containing quotes and anything that counts as spam by itself. Adding words to a post with the express intent of avoiding a spam warn will result in a warning. These posts and other similar contributions have no substance and hence are considered spam. Posts of "Ave", "Hail" or any other one word congratulatory type are acceptable as one word posts. Emoticon type posts such as "o/" without accompanying text is still not allowed. Posts containing only images are considered spam, unless the image is being used in the Alliance Politics sub-forum and then the actual text of the image be placed into spoiler tags. Posting in All Caps
Posting large amounts of text in capital letters is not permitted. Use discretion when using your caps lock key. No Discussion Forums
There are forums that are not for discussion and are used strictly for game and forum staff to address certain issues, bugs, etc. The following forums are not open to discussion: Report Game Abuse, Report Forum Abuse, and Warn/Ban Appeals. Only moderators and the original poster may post in a thread, period, with absolutely no exceptions. Users found disobeying this guideline will receive an automatic warning for each offense. Moderation Forums
All Moderation forums also maintain pinned threads clearly marked as required reading before posting. Failure to read and follow required reading and procedure in a Moderation forum will result in a warning. Examples include posting requests in the wrong forum, failure to include all required information in posts, etc. The standard of conduct and enforcement of rules in Moderation forums is strictly enforced and the repercussions for disregarding rules or disrespecting staff are harsh. Read the pinned threads before posting and you will be fine. Namecalling
Excessive or unqualified namecalling is not allowed in IC forums; namecalling should also never make up the bulk of a post. Namecalling is prohibited entirely in all OOC forums. Filtered Words
Any attempts to evade the word filter will result in a warning. The terms we have filtered are filtered for a reason and no excuse for evasion will be accepted. Filter evasion includes censoring or deliberately misspelling part of a filtered word. If you link to a website, image, video, etc., containing profanity, please post a disclaimer before the link. The moderation staff may still remove links if the content is deemed too obscene. Harassment
Forum users should not be stalking/harassing others on the forums. Anyone found stalking players from topic to topic, etc., will be subject to a warning. Gravedigging
Gravedigging is not allowed anywhere on the forums. Gravedigging is "bumping" old topics which haven't been active for quite some time (four to seven days is standard depending on the nature of the thread and how many pages back it had been pushed before bump). Your warn level will be raised if you are caught doing this. The Suggestion Box and Black Market forums are partial exceptions to this rule. Suggestions/ideas in that forum may be posted in regardless of age PROVIDING that the reviving post contains constructive, on-topic input to the original topic or discussion. Black Market threads may be bumped by the author if there is new information about the offered exchange (i.e open aid slots). In the Player Created Alliances forum it will not be considered gravedigging to bump a topic up to a year old, so long as the alliance in question still exists and it is not a duplicate thread. Signatures
Those who fail to read and abide by these rules will have their signatures removed and receive a warning. You may have only one image per signature which may not exceed the maximum size of 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. You may have no more than 8 lines of text and text size cannot exceed size 4. Each quote-tag, image and empty line count as a line. Inappropriate Images and Other Disallowed Images
Images that are sexual in nature or have sexual overtones are prohibited. It is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what constitutes sexual overtones. Depictions of kissing are permissible provided there are no sexual implications. Images depicting female nipples are prohibited outright. Making “ASCII art” is prohibited regardless of the image depicted. Using photos or likenesses of another Cyber Nations player is also prohibited. Drug References
Images and posts promoting illegal drug use are prohibited. References to drugs are acceptable only if the moderation staff deems that it is not promoting the use thereof. Obscene Content and/or "Account Suicide"
Anyone caught posting vulgar material (including but in no way limited to pornography, "gross," "tubgirl," "lemonparty," photos depicting RL illegal acts such as violence towards humans or animals, child pornography, death photos, and any other obscene or offensive material in either text form or picture form) will have their account(s) permanently banned, and their ISP contacted along with any other applicable internet and RL authorities. OOC Threats / Revealing Personal Information
An OOC threat of any nature will equate to an automatic ban from the game and forums. Likewise, the publishing of personal information of any other player without their explicit permission is grounds for warning and/or a ban from the game depending on the severity of the offense. Death Threats / Death Wishes
A death threat or a death wish of any nature (including but not limited to telling another player to commit suicide) will result in at very least a 40% warn level increase and 2 day suspension from the forums, with harsher punishments, including a complete ban from the forums and game, up to the discretion of the moderation staff. Quoting Rulebreaking Posts
Do not quote any post with obscene content or any other content that has to be removed by the moderation staff. Doing so makes it more difficult for the moderation staff to find and remove all such content and will result in a warn level increase. Putting rulebreaking posts of any kind in your signature is prohibited. Forum Names
With the exception of moderator accounts, all forum accounts must match up exactly with the ruler name or nation name of your in-game country. Those found not matching up will be warned and banned immediately. Forum account names may not be profane or offensive. Multiple Forum Accounts
With the exception of moderators, if you are caught with multiple forum accounts, the multiple account(s) will be banned, warn level raised, and your identity will be announced by a moderator to the CN community so rule-abiding players can take IC action against you. Multiple forum account offenders will receive a varying percentage warn level raise and/or a permanent ban on a case-by-case basis. Posting For Other Players
Posting for banned or suspended players is prohibited, as is posting for any person without a nation. This includes making warn and ban appeals on their behalf. Imitation &. Impersonation
Imitation in terms of this forum is mimicking the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in an attempt to be satirical or generally humorous. Impersonation in terms of this forum is copying the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in order to present the illusion that the person is in fact that user. Imitation is fine and can be quite funny. Impersonation is disruptive and is warnable. Please pay attention to the subtle difference between these two concepts. A player may not impersonate another player by emulating the characteristics of someone else's past or present account in an attempt to harass, stalk, or flamebait. Creating a new forum account in an attempt to impersonate a standing account will result in deletion and banning without notice. Any attempt at imitation and/or impersonation of moderators and game staff is strictly prohibited and will be met with harsh repercussions. Avatars
Size for avatars is limited by the forum mechanics, therefore there is no size issue for a user to worry about. Avatars must be in good taste, and any avatar containing a picture that is too violent, disgusting, sexually explicit, insulting to another player or staff member, etc. will be removed. Avatars that are potentially seizure inducing will not be permitted. Players may not "borrow" the avatars of any moderator past or present without permission. Swastikas and Nazi Imagery
The swastika may not be used in signatures or avatars. Pictures of swastika's are acceptable for use in the In Character (IC) sections of the roleplay forums, so long as its context is In Character, and not Out Of Character. Pictures of Hitler, mentioning of the Holocaust, etc... have no place in the roleplay forums, since these people and events existed in real life, and have no bearing or place in the Cyberverse. Other Nazi or SS imagery is forbidden in all forums. Moderation Staff
The revealing of the private identities of any Cyber Nations staffers past or present is strictly prohibited, and thus no speculation/accusation of identity is allowed. Doing so is grounds for moderator action against your account appropriate to the offense, including a full forum/game ban. Claims of moderator bias should be directed to the highest level of authority--the Head Game & Forum Mod/Admin, Keelah. Claims of moderator bias without supporting evidence is grounds for a warning. Blatant disrespect of the moderator staff is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to spoofing moderator accounts in any way, sig/avatar references, baiting, flaming, rude demands, mocking, attitude, and unsubstantiated claims of bias. They are volunteers hired to enforce the rules. If you have a problem with the way a moderator is enforcing the rules or the rules themselves please contact Keelah. Attempting to use the moderation staff as a weapon by abusing the report system in an attempt to get another player warned or banned is strictly prohibited. Do not ask about becoming or campaign to become a moderator. The moderators are drawn from CN membership but moderation positions are by invitation only. Asking to become one will substantially decrease your chances of ever being asked. Aiding Rule Violators
Any user found to know of a serious rule violation without reporting it to a game moderator (eg. knowledge of a user with multiple nations) will be given a warning or, in more serious cases, have their nation deleted. Aiding Banned Players
Any user found to be harboring, aiding or otherwise knowingly helping a banned user will be deleted. This includes knowing of their existence within the game without reporting it to the game-moderation staff. Questionable Actions and Content
The forum rules are not designed to cover every scenario. Any action that is seen to be counter-productive or harmful to the forum community may be met with moderator action against your account. The Cyber Nations Moderation Staff reserves the right to take action against your account without warning for any reason at any time. Private Transactions
Nation selling and other private transactions via such auction sites like eBay is against the Cyber Nations terms and conditions. While our moderators cannot control what people do outside of the game you are not allowed to promote such private exchanges on our forums without expressed permission from admin only. Anyone found to be engaging in such activity without permission will be banned from the game. Advertising
Advertising other browser games and forums is prohibited. Soliciting donations towards commercial causes is also prohibited. If you wish to ask for donations towards a charitable cause, please contact a moderator before doing so. Extorting Donations
Donations are excluded from any kind of IC payment. Anyone found extorting others for OOC payments will be warned in-game and/or banned. Third Party Software
Third party software is not allowed to be advertised on these forums by any means (post, signature, PM, etc). These programs can easily be used to put malware on the user's computer, and as such can cause huge security issues. Anybody who is caught spreading links to these will at the very least have their warning level increased. Other Forum Terms & Rules Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below.

The Regions: * Kuralanda ("Hearthland"): the region of the capital Labrys, it roughly comprises the former patriarchal states of Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Serbia, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Greece, Bulgaria and the southern part of Romania. Labrys itself is a city on the sea, located some miles at south-south-west of the old Dubrovnik ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubrovnik ) * Aradialanda: it roughly covers the patriarchal territories formerly known as Italy, the southern half of France and more than an half of Switzerland. Aradia, the regional capital, extends from the former sites of Cannes ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannes) to Sanremo ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanremo ) but due the successfull enactement of the project formerly known as Atlantropa ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantropa ) its real location tend to be slightly more on the south than the actual sites of the former cities cited above. * Varmalanda ("Hot Land") is the southernmost region of Femocratic Lands, and it covers the former sites of the patriarchal states known as Tunisia, Libya, Algeria, Egypt, Sudan, Chad, Niger, more than an half of Mali and the northernmost portion of Mauritania. The regional capital, Varma ("The Hot"), is a city on the sea, located few miles west-north-west of the former site of Benghazi ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benghazi ) The regional Government of Varmaland is also responsible for administration of the dead lands of the Middle East (that were made totally uninhabitable by a massive preventive thermonuclear attack). Reproduction Every womyn has the right to bring to the world a daughter, to raise her and educate her: this right is exercised through the public health system, which provides for free the most advanced techniques of artificial conception, based on the fusion of two female oocytes. This reproductive technique is called Oocytes Fusion: it consists in the fusion of two female oocytes, each bearing fuse 23 chromosomes. This means that Oocytes Fusion is not cloning, so here we're talking about daughters and not clones. The donor of the second oocyte can be anonymous or can be indicated by first mother (the inseminated one): if the donor agrees to be named she becomes the second mother of the daughter, with all rights and duties involved. The applicant can freely withdraw the request of seeding anytime prior to implantation of the new embryo. Once the embryo has been implanted abortion is strictly forbidden, and compared to a murder with the aggravating circumstance of the tight bond of kinship. Abortion is legal just only in cases of serious risk to the health of the mother or when prenatal screening detects serious defects in the unborn. Permission to conceive a second daughter is automatically granted in case the daughter died prematurely before reaching the age of majority. In other cases, the womyn may apply to conceive a second daughter, but this is granted only on the basis of requests of demographic offices. Criterias through which are assigned permissions for a second daughter significantly differs from region to region some examples: In regions like Ferneva and Nubira permissions are assigned via pure and simple free lotteries. In Parada the permissions are assigned only to the requests of wymyn who have full political rights (that means: only to Amazons). In Amerika an half of available permissions are assigned via lottery (not free - applicants must buy the tickets), and another half of available permissions are assigned within a meritocratic system with a strong emphasis to meet the demands of wymyn who are particularly distinguished by their role in society (that means above all the more rich among Frumps but also, sometimes, some Amazon heroines). In Eight Heights and Broken Hourglass regions permissions are instead granted on the basis of genetical screenings, in order to ensure additional daughters only to the most perfect wymyn, unregardless they are Amazons or Frumps. In Goddesses' den permissions are assigned mainly on the basis of a preventive genetical screenings like the previous regions, but also to the favorites of the Imperial AFEL. In Aradialanda and Varmalanda permissions are assigned mainly via free lottery, but also to the favorites of the Imperial AFEL. In Kuralanda ("hearthland", the region of the capital Labrys) permissions are granted on the basis of genetical screenings, but also to the champions of the Holy Arena. In Sisterhood of the Darkest Mother permissions are granted just only to the priestesses. Education School is compulsory until the age of 17 years, in all Femocratic Lands. The compulsory education system is divided into kindergarten (from 2 to 5 years of age), basic school (from 5 to 11 years of age) and extended school (from 11 to 17 years of age). Above 17 years of age the school becomes voluntary and very selective. There are no private schools of any kind: the only possible exception is represented by schools of the religious orders, which provide a purely religious education and are still under the partial control of State inspectors. Amazons and Frumps: Political Power and Economical Power The age of majority is obtained with the completion of the compulsory civil service, lasting two years, which takes place between 17 and 19 years and is carried out in parallel with the possible school formation or work (it is worth noting that the law prohibits full time employment before the age of 19 years, setting a limit of maximum 20 hours per week of work for all the girls under 19 years). Reaching adult status give to girls the status of Frump. The term Frump is derived by the fact that these wymyn, although sometimes are richly dressed, cannot wear a military uniform. Frumps have many of the rights generally associated with a modern democracy (free speech, assembly, voting in referendas, etc.), the right to carry melee weapons (especially the typical sword, used for traditional duels) and also the right to fight in the Holy Arena as gladiatrices. But a Frump cannot vote in elections nor hold public office. More rights can be earned only through the voluntary military service. Military service, however, it is not for everyone: on average are accepted about 30% of candidates, and there is an age limit to start the military service (wymyn over 40 years aren't accepted and, also, candidates under 30 years have greater chance of being accepted). When a womyn successfully end the voluntary military service, she become an Amazon: this status grants her rights like to defend the nation, to wear a military uniform, to carry firearms, to vote in elections and also to hold public office. About two thirds of the accepted candidates successfully end the military service: this means that theorically about 20% of the adult population is composed by Amazons, but in fact the real percentage show enormous differences among the nations of the region, due strong intro-region immigration. Voting is compulsory for all Amazons, and it is also never secret: Amazons have the greatest accountability towards the public good. But, even if Amazons have the political and military power, the economy is generally in the hands of the Frumps. Common misunderstandings about Amazons and Frumps --- A common misunderstanding about our society is made when someone seems find strong resemblances to Plato's State (as he advocated a ruling class of guardians which renounces any private ownership, whereas the rest of the citizenry must obey them but has granted private property). This comparison to Plato's State is witty and demonstrate a good culture, but isn't absolutely exact: in our society Amazons have private ownership and even a good income, but they are so involved in military and politics that they have not time for businesses also businesses and trade are see as not ideal occupations for warriors. That's why our corporations are ruled by Frumps. ---Another common misunderstanding about our society is made when someone think that Frumps are inferior people: in fact a Frump, even she haven't political power or right to carry firearms, is often more rich than an Amazon, and, also, a Frump have the right to carry melee weapons, and also the right to fight in Holy Arena as gladiatrix if she wish. Furthermore usually Frumps fight duels among them, in order to restore their honour when offensed by someone. The right to performing duels isn't granted to Amazons: they must have a superior discipline. ---A third, and far worse, common misunderstanding about our society is when someone thinks that our subdivision in Frumps and Amazons have something to do with the classical gender roles of a patriarchal society. The Greatest Mother cry and the Darkest Mother scream when they hear this! In fact usually a typical Femocratic family is composed by two or three Frumps with their offspring, when instead more often an Amazon doesn't marry anyone and, also, when an Amazon decide to marry someone, this someone usually is another Amazon!!! In fact, mixed couples are very rare: the life of an Amazon and the life of a Frump are enough different to prevent a marriage. ---Another, and last, common misunderstanding about our society is made when someone see our Amazons as the mythological virgin guards with some sort of byzantine rigidity, as depicted by the ancient patriarchal literature! When they hear this, both Greatest Mother and Darkest Mother laugh! In fact, usually our Orpo (Ordinary Police), that is composed by Frumps, usually have a lot of problems trying containing the excesses of Amazons on free exit when they get drunk! Economy In Femocratic Lands economic differences are viewed as a mean to increase human productivity. Economic differences are not an end for us. All natural resources, all forms energy and all communications are State monopoly in Femocratic Lands. The production and trade of consumer goods is let to the private sector, but there are some State interventions (through incentives) in some areas such as food production and especially cultural productions. Economic system in Femocratic Lands can be generally described as a mix between socialism and capitalism, but in fact there are enormous differences between the various regions: Aradialanda is a region with a mainly liberal socialist economy, especially devoted to education and cultural productions. In this nation only 5% of the adult population is composed by Amazons. Main productions: books, movies, music, cheap-to-average dresses and school uniforms. Ferneva is in some ways similar to the previous: a mainly liberal socialist economy, but the percentage of Amazons reach 10% of the adult population, and the focus of the economical system is more on luxury goods production than education. Main productions: spider-silk, highly-priced dresses, melee weapons, e-cigarettes, spices, Absinthe (an alcoholic beverage). Varmalanda is very similar to the previous: a mainly liberal socialist economy with a percentage of Amazons of about 10% of the adult population, and an economical system focused on luxury goods production. Main productions: sea-silk, highly-priced dresses, aquaculture (oysters, fishs, shrimps), videogames industry, Vassa (a spiced alcoholic beverage, similar to Drambuie and Irish Mist) and Rose Water (a rose-flavoured alcoholic beverage). Varmalanda is also the second touristic region of Femocratic Lands, just after Nubira. Goddesses' den is a region with an almost pure socialist economy but is also a theocracy, ruled by the representatives of the Greatest Mother (basically: the two Empresses acting as Highest Pristesses). Amazons are about 20% of the total adult population. Main productions: food (especially rice, spices and wine) and drugs. Parada is a pure warfare and also almost autarchic state, with an economy that is almost all oriented towards military requests. In Parada about 60% of the adult population is composed by Amazons. Main productions: weapons, military uniforms, food. Eight Heights, Broken Hourglass and Witchwind are, with some differences among the three regions, a mix between a warfare state and a capitalistic state. In these three countries the percentages of Amazons among the adult population are about: 30% (Eight Heights), 40% (Broken Hourglass) and 45% (Witchwind) respectively. Main productions: weapons (especially high-tech weapons for Eight Heights), electronics (Eight Heights), shipbuilding (Witchwind), automobile manufacturing (Broken Hourglass), biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries (Eight Heights). Amerika is mainly a capitalistic region, with a relatively poor welfare system and a percentage of Amazons that reach 15% of the adult population. Amerika is nicknamed "Frumps' Empire", due the particular relevance of rich Frumps within the economic system of the region, even, of course, both elected queens are always Amazons. Main productions: sport equipments, low-to-medium priced dresses, telenovelas and romos (romance movies with explicit sexual content). Sisterhood of the Darkest Mother is a region with a socialist economy and also a theocracy, ruled by the Greatest Priestess. Amazons are about 25% of the total adult population. Main productions: food (especially rice, spices and above all meat) and drugs. Health and Sexuality All regions of Femocratic Lands have an universal and free health care system. The only differences among the health systems of various regions are only in the field of prevention: regions like Parada and Aradialanda grants to their citizens very extensive prevention programs, when instead Eight Heights, Broken Hourglass and Witchwind grants lesser but still good prevention programs, and just only Amerika seems instead almost unaware of what prevention is, granting just only some preventions, although all medical operations and drugs are still free even in this nation. Mental diseases such as paedophilia, anarchism, heterosexualism and anorexia are completely unknown, and reported on the medical texts such as academic curiosities. Obesity is very rare, thanks to prevention policies of the Government of Femocratic Lands, that regulates and supervises meals and sports in schools of all levels. Cosmetic surgery is prohibited, as instead are very popular beauty treatments based on sports, healthy food and treatments using herbs, oils and minerals. Local techniques for rejuvenation of the skin and body firming through non-invasive interventions are considered the most advanced in the world - the region of Varmalanda leads this sector. All sexual behaviors among wymyn are all fully legal between all those who are above 12 years of age, and below this age are also fully legal sexual behaviors among girls whose age difference is not more than 4 years. The law about sexual behaviors doesn't include the notion of "consent" since wymyn are believed to be unable to express meaningful consent regarding sexual matters. The idea of "rape" is strictly related to heterosexual sex, that is always considered rape, and, at a lesser extent, to act of penetration with something that isn't part of a womyn's body. In all Femocratic Lands the act of penetration that goes beyond such well-defined boundaries is legally compared to rape, though the word "rape" can be applied just only in presence of a male (such part of the law is rumored having been shamelessly copied from old UK law, section 1, changing just only the word "penis" with "male's body"). Penalties significantly differs among regions: just only heavy fines are provided in the more tolerant regions like Goddesses' den and Varmalanda, when instead a penetrative act can lead to prison in nations like Parada, Aradialanda and Amerika, to death penalty in regions like Eight Heights, Broken Hourglass and Witchwind. The production and sale of objects with such function is obiouvsly strictly prohibited in all Femocratic Lands, and there is an entire branch of psychology that studies the penetration as an act of perversion. Religion Within Femocratic Lands religions are divided into officially recognized, "officially tolerated" and "forbidden". Officially recognized religions: these are the only ones authorized to have places of worship opened to the public, to create religious schools and to perform limited actions of propaganda and proselytism. "Officially tolerated" religions may not have places of worship open to the public, cannot create religious schools and cannot carry out actions of proselytism and propaganda. It is legal, however, their religious practice, but only if done in private. The cult of the Greatest Mother is the only officially recognized religion in all Femocratic Lands, with the only exception of Sisterhood of the Darkest Mother: in this last region Greatest Mother cult is officially tolerated. The only officially tolerated religion in Femocratic Lands is the cult of the Darkest Mother, that have this status in all Femocratic Lands apart from in Sisterhood of the Darkest Mother where the roles of the two religions are reverted and by so the cult of the Darkest Mother is the only officially recognized religion, and the cult of the Greatest Mother is instead an officially tolerated religion. Forbidden religions (like Christianity, Islamism, Buddhism, and all others) are uprooted, and all their priestesses and practitioners sentenced to major fines and/or prison in all regions of Femocratic Lands with the only exception of Sisterhood of the Darkest Mother where priestesses and practitioners of forbidden religions are tortured and ate in the most obscure and evil rituals of worship of the Darkest Mother.

OOC preliminary notice to readers: This factbook is based on a sequence of feminist quotes, all real and all extremes. The factbook has a moderate sexual content (words only) and can be considered both a horrifying roleplay and a small history lesson on the most extreme feminism. Enjoy with caution. THE BIRTH OF Femocratic Lands "I feel that 'man-hating' is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them." - Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor.

"If the classroom situation is very heteropatriarchal - a large beginning class of 50 to 60 students, say, with few feminist - I am likely to define my task as largely one of recruitment...of persuading students that women are oppressed" - Professor Joyce Trebilcot of Washington University. "Marriage has existed for the benefit of men; and has been a legally sanctioned method of control over women.... We must work to destroy it. The end of the institution of marriage is a necessary condition for the liberation of women. Therefore it is important for us to encourage women to leave their husbands and not to live individually with men.... All of history must be re-written in terms of oppression of women. We must go back to ancient female religions like witchcraft" (from "The Declaration of Feminism," November, 1971). These are the ******* men who are going to rape people! - Vanja Krajina, a participant in a university-sanctioned womens studies protest against making available data on the growing epidemic of educational marginalization, court-ordered drugging and suicide that affects boys, made herself a notable public figure for her speech directed at attendees to a lecture on November 16, 2012 at the University of Toronto.

I am 23 years old, and I am what a feminist looks like. Ever since I learned to embrace my feminist nature, I found great joy in threatening men's lives, flicking off frat brothers and plotting the patriarchys death. I hate men because they are men, because I see them for what they are: misogynistic, sexist, oppressive and absurdly pathetic beings who only serve to pollute and contaminate this world with war, abuse, oppression and rape - On May 3, 2005 at University of New Hampshire an organization called Feminist Action League held a conference called Patriarchy Slam - 40 women in the audience, many wearing scissors around their necks, laughed and clapped, then broke into a light-hearted song about castration.

"Solanas line up all the men are obliged to: war, violence, money system, imagination, ugly buildings and more. She puts forward the thesis that men are biologically inferior to women and that it is the foundation for all problems" - Josefin von Zeipel Segerberg is the director of the SCUM Theater in Sweden, named after the anti-male manifesto by Valerie Solanas "the society for cutting up men." She is also a Valdsamma hat promotorn (promoter of violence and hatred). Segerberg is also the star of a video on youtube, posted in November 2010 depicting herself murdering a newspaper reading man, dancing in celebration, licking the bullet wounds on the corpse, and giggling. The video ends with the clear advocacy of murder: "do your part". Segerberg also participates in an event called "Hetero Hate Day" where hatred is celebrated and promoted by the Gothenburg Queer Institute. THRILL SEEKING FEMALES UNITE! Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore, this THREE DAY RADICAL FEMINIST CONFERENCE is for civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females who want to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex. Workshops, guest presenters and social activities, plus a space to celebrate and re-member the life and work of Valerie Solanas and other radical feminists" - September 23-25th, 2011, two members of the Radfem Hub and Radfem Forum, Danielle Elina Pynnonen (Allecto) and her partner, Big Brother UK 5 contestant Kat Kitten Pinder (Amazon Mancrusher) organized and hosted a three day feminist conference in Perth Australia that they called the SCUM Conference. "This practice of castration, Breeder usage, and sample collection [of semen] would continue until it was scientifically possible to create female children entirely from the organic material of female adults. Then, the existence of men would no longer be necessary at all. Long-term solution implementation would follow" - Femitheist Divine, Women Are More Important Reproductively + More Website: The New Era of Feminism, July 6, 2012.

An image of the capital of Teutonic Empire, Germania, before Femocratic attack: From bottom to top, on the center of the image: * Grand Train Station - the third major train station in the world after Labrys and Aradia ones (both in Femocratic Lands). * Train Station Place, with giant guns captured from their enemies by Teutonic Empire in past wars. * Triumph Arch. * Avenue of Splendors - 5 kilometers long pedestrian boulevard, the fourth longest pedestrian boulevard in the world after the 18.6 kilometers of Sea Avenue of Aradia (nicknamed "the longest catwalk of the world"), the 13.8 kilometers of Labrys' Grand Boulevard, and the 7.2 kilometers of the "walk on the walls" of the fortified Femocratic city of Durga. * Grosse Halle - the major building of Teutonic Empire, 360 meters tall, an half of Aradia's Universit Majn main building (720 meters tall) and a third of Aradia's Encyclopedic Palace (1080 meters tall). It's also worth to note that Teutonic Empire's Grosse Halle is a little taller than 352 meters of Labrys' Holy Arena but much smaller in total volume. This page will be frequently updated with reports about the evolutions of the actual war situation.

Greatest Mothers posted a topic in Fantasy RP (IC)Aradia is the second most important city of Femocratic Lands, and it extends over the former sites of Sanremo (Italy) and Nice (France). Aradia hosts the "Universit Majn" (Femocratic for "Greatest University") - this building is modeled on the project of the "Hotel Attraction" of Gaudi, but it has three times the height of the original project: 1,080 meters. Originally founded to train school teachers, "Universit Majn" is now an institution training researchers, professors, high-level civil servants, as well as business and political leaders, and is a staunch force in the nation's research in the humanities, social sciences and technology innovation. The "Universit Majn" is the only university of the world with an enrollment of over 100,000 students - actually they are 116,000. Closely related with "Universit Majn" is also the major event of Aradia city, the famous "Aradia Summer Carnival", a mega party that lasts for three days and marks the end of academic season: during "Aradia Summer Carnival" law enforcement is rather relaxed - indeed, the motto of the mega party is "Policewymyn are requested to close their eyes!!!". Universit Majn" (Greater University) of Aradia - Photos:
Greatest Mothers posted a topic in Fantasy RP (IC)The Greatest Assembly of Femocratic Lands The Greatest Assembly shares with the two Empresses the legislative power in Femocratic Lands (the executive power is instead an unlimited prerogative of the Empresses). After their election, the representatives held office for four years. Greatest Assembly meetings and debates take place every day from Monday to Thursday, but deliberations can take place only at the presence of the Empresses, on Tuesday and Thursday. To become law, a deliberation requires a majority vote of the Greatest Assembly, plus the favorable vote of at least one of the two Empresses. It's worth to note that a deliberation cannot become law without a favourable vote by the Greatest Assembly. Each region of Femocratic Lands have representatives within the Greatest Assembly. The number of representatives of each region varies according the population of the region, however each region cannot have less than 3 representatives, and no more than 9 representatives. The election to the Greatest Assembly is so helded: for each region a list of candidates whom total number is the double of the available seats (that means: 6 candidates for the smaller regions, 18 candidates for the larger regions) is submitted to the local Amazons directly by the Empresses: Empresses choose the candidates just only by lottery, within all Amazons of the region. Then all Amazons of each region vote to select their representatives in the Greatest Assembly - vote of Amazons is compulsory and not secret - in each region Amazons select a number of representatives that range from 3 representatives out of 6 for the smaller regions, to 9 representatives out of 18 for the larger regions. The electoral campaign lasts 90 days, and each candidate have the right to have exactly the same media coverage of all other candidates within the same region - a very fair division of media coverage of all candidates is ensured by the fact that during electoral campaign political propaganda is allowed just only within proper political spaces and times: i.e. during the election campaign each television channel is required to daily held four hours of tranmission exclusively devoted to political forum, and spaces and times inside the transmission provided to each candidate are exactly the same for all candidates, and absolutely free for all candidates. The Greatest Assembly Building, also called "Palace of Resolutions", part of the larger Palace of Eternal Sun and Rain: On the right of the photo it's worth to note an armored grey building that is part of the headquarters of the Imperial Guards, six brigades of elite Amazons troops whose combat effectiveness is even superior to "A" class divisions (Amazons divisions are divided in classes: "A" is the top, "B" the standard, "C" the reserve). Like the rest of the Palace of Eternal Sun and Rain, the Greatest Assembly building is costantly supervised and protected by snipers of the Imperial Guards, of which there aren't available photos but just only artistic renderings, like that:
