One must have puns, of course. I have been known to speculate about the adventures of a piratical Dutchman called Captain Van Dango, and his second-in-command, the French assassinatrix Anna-Baptiste, the Boer Wars battle of Bendt Kop, and suchlike.

Bezzo, those guys in your photo look spiffing. Especially the guerrilla soldiers on the right at the front.

In Transformers the cartoon there was a fictional rogue terrorist state in the middle east and- I kid you not- it was called Carbomba. Wrong on so many levels- but in a kids TV show... ::)

There's always Berezink if you're looking for someone European.  They were always trying to blow something up in Thunderbirds.

For an African country, there's Nambutu from Casino Royale.

The comic-strip "Doonesbury" has the nation of Berzerkistan. I think I like that one...

Greetings, from President Dardin of The Allied States of Rosswood!

We are located in the Pacific Northwest, on islands located 250 miles off of the coast of North America. We gained independance from the US and Canada in 1955, as long as we helped fight Communism during the Cold War.


This is my Imagi-nation created for the Nationstates game. You may use my nation as much as you like for your games.

It's interesting seeing an ultra-modern western imagi-nation. Most people choose a real power and come up with a fake OPFOR.

I use the nation of Musoria as my OPFOR against my modern ADF. They've gone through three separate incarnations, Indonesian, Russian and Chinese wannabes... More or less how the ADF have perceived them over the years :P

Surely, the pick of all Latin American imagi-nations has to be Tejada?

My African setting is Morvalonga formerly the British colony of Morvalistan.  Its geography is (very) loosely based on Kenya. Its characters, factions, politics and forces are purely fictitious.  And most places and people suffer from the terribly infectious endemic Punning Disease.

President for Life, Saviour of the Nation, the Legendary Bishop Moses Besqit has held power in all of the recent elections.  They were all fair and open he says.  The main internal opposition comes from the relatively peaceful but vociferous Lon Leggi, and the insurgents under General Wotabiq Birbelli and their armed rebellion. He is supported by the neighboring Islamic Kingdom of Qaza’ar and in particular its Regent, General Q’stard Qareem.
