  1. Tokallē Tēōkotlasētla Temple of Finance (TT) The Temple of Finance is governed primarily by the Temple of the All-High and secondarily by the Temple of the Highest, outside of the direct command of the Archpriest to prevent immediate corruption. TT was established by Archpriest Itzekotla the year before Metztlitlalio independence two months after the end of the fascist party within Limonaia. The Temple of Finance's primary duties are to uphold economic regulations, manage taxation, and uphold the system of Amatlakisētla. Amatlakisētla is the self-attatched name for the system of economics Metztlitlalio implements. A hybrid of socialism and capitalism. Local private enterprises and companies are permitted within Metztlitlalio, however once a company has reached an arbitrary size determined by the company's end products, the company is absorbed into the Temple of Finance as a sector of the Temple, with economic and social incentives given out to the high-ranking management of the companies, whilst maintaining a major role within the old companies. Amatlakisētla also has external connotations of incredibly strict regulations upon companies, the larger the company the harsher the punishments for smaller of infractions. If a company is considered to be going against the common interests of the people and especially the nation, TT often forces the knee of the company to either be broken into separate corporate entities, or be absorbed entirely into the Temple of Finance, with the old high ranking officials expelled. This in turn has caused in the past hesitation of those lower down in society and the economy to set up businesses, however the appeal of eventually joining the higher ups as part of the Temple of Finance has it's own merits. On the other hand, this actively discourages companies from other nations setting up within Metztlitlalio, causing the Metztli rate of economic growth to be much lower then it could potentially achieve, thus debates have begun within the Temple of Finance, primarily between Temple of the All-High, the Temple of the Highest, and with outside companies to come up with potential solutions and work arounds. Temple of Finance's regulations are greatly reduced within LAANN member state companies who have set up within Metztlitlalio, however certain guidelines are still required to be followed strictly, such as the Anti-Deceivement Protocols of 2011. The main use of this thread is to discuss economics, Metztlitlalio natural resources, and some of the unique attributes of Metztlikua jobs as well as the roles the Temple of Finance plays within said jobs.
  2. League of Alharu and Aurelian Native Nations "LAANNs" Current Members: Worker's Republic of @Fulgistan (红旗工人共和国 ) Archpriest Dominion of @Metztlitlalio (Tokyotl Tlalōmetestli Ākatopixikoxeka) Matriarchy of @Oyus (Matriarcato dell'Oyus ) Primary Headquarters: Yulaa, Oyus. Secondary-1 Headquarters: Altepetl Tekaken, Metztlitlalio Secondary-2 Headquarters: Bogd Gioro, Fulgistan Note: Secondary-1 and Secondary-2 Headquarters hold equal power and are merely labelled for distinction. Originally conceived in October of 2009, 2 months after the Metztlitlalio "civil war", as an economic and military pact designed to further the interests of each of the members, primarily as an economic block to rival Europa-descendant nations within the Western Hemisphere. It was taken seriously by 2017 and after 2 years of paperwork, on the 14th of November, 2019, the League of Alharu and Aurelian Native Nations was officially signed into legitimacy by the 3 founding nations. With a combined population of over 55.5 Million and a GDP of over 653.3 Billion, the new economic block has been predicted to completely dominate the east and south of Alharu economically and militarily, as all three member nations may freely move troops and other military personnel and equipment amongst each other's borders and waters, along with the establishment of multiple chanceries for quick-moving embassies within each other's major cities. Member states of LAANNs have agreed to free trade amongst each other, primarily within the manufacturing, mining, and agricultural products. Tourists within member nations also do not require a VISA, however passport checks as well as other border security measures still exist. Although Fulgistan holds significant power geopolitically, there is no official leader of LAANN, as all 3 nations hold veto power for any new legislation designed to be passed through LAANN to all three nations. Currently the nations of Mauridiviah (Full Member) and Eulycea (Spectator Member) have open invitations to join the League without requiring a vote of current members. The up and coming thread below will be following the leaders and high ranking officials of the 3 founding nations and the evolution of LAANN, from it's original inception as a small economic bloc, up to the point of announcement of today.
  3. Appears as though everyone is in agreement. I don’t know how far into the map you are. Will you just be using the Artifexian version or will you be going into more depth? @Creaturae
  4. Tokallē Teōmatilistli a Nēkanatlakasētla Metztlikua Culture #02: Slavery. Slavery in Metztlitlalio has always been a key component of Metztlikua culture, especially due to the lack of animals of burden within the Metztli half of the peninsula. The vast majority of slaves were considered Tlateqopnōsitlame, and covered a wide range of tasks, from simple farming to maids and even presents. Slaves within Metztli religion were considered quite highly, as people put to be of service to Kipatli and the life be brought, and were banned from ever being used as a sacrifice in temples. Children born from slaves were to be brought to the temples to either become a priest or a warrior, depending on their classification of either Tlateqopnōsitlame or Taryakanaqōsitlame. However due to the nature of Metztlitlalio in the past and even in modern day, more disconnected areas were subject to have people born into slavery and other unsavoury ideas. Other laws within Metztlitlalio required that there was a dedicated room to the slaves (however the size is not stated, leading to many just giving them a small wooden closet, called a Tlakoyokotli. When Limonaia conquered the Crescent Empire, many of the aristocrats that survived and obeyed Limonaia were given Huang slaves, many of these slaves ended up being freed however, as they could not understand Nawat, soon congregating to form their own villages and towns that dot the areas just beyond major rivers and cities. Many still speaking their own distinct dialects of Huang. Many of the Faloki mining slaves brought over by Limonaia gained freedom once iron exports begun to dwindle on the south-western coast, the predecessors to the modern day Faloki ethnic group of Metztlitlalio. Within the Yatotla, slavery is more commonly found as house slaves then labour slaves, unlike the rest of the nation. However standards for slaves are significantly higher then that of the national average, however are paradoxically more oppressed, automatically a slave if their parents are slaves also, due to the Metztli religion holding less power within the autonomous Kalpolli. Officially, 5.6% of the population has been registered as slaves. However actual numbers are more likely to be in the low to mid 10s%, as most slaves are owned by rural farmers, with those accounted for either working or living near large population centres, or within the mines.
  5. In Geography, especially world building, tiny tweaks usually end up causing massive differences.
  6. The same symbols can work, just edited so they're not the exact same ones everyone else uses on their flags. I'm not opposed to the laurel and lion. Just those two exact images the one Aurora are using are commonly used on other flags.
  7. Go for the original redesign (Tricolour). The original is an “eh”/10 and this second redesign feels generic. The first redesign feels special and unique and screams “I have my place and I am my own me.” However, be aware that the laurel and lion used are very commonly used symbols on fictional nations flags. I recommend switching them out for more unorthodox designs or tracing them and adding your own flare to them.
  8. Except I'm not changing the temperature itself, I'm changing precipitation levels due to Eurth having sparser continents that are more disconnected, which allows for the temperature of the planet to be much more uniform, allowing for the poles to be warmer and the equator to be slightly cooler, as well as due to more water and sparser continents, rainfall is more likely, allowing for what would be the transition zone for arid and non-arid, to have increased rainfall, thus decreasing the overall size of the deserts. However I totally understand where you're coming from and agree that we don't have a 100% accurate, it wouldn't be fun if it was.
  9. Tag, my boy, it's time for a ...
  10. I'm going to just put my own bias to begin with: I really dislike the original climate map, even when I didn't know much about climates and water currents it just felt... off. So seeing Creaturae redoing it to be more realistic gets two thumbs up from me and shouldn't be shunned for doing so. In reality the map itself really needs to be reworked especially near the polar regions, however I understand why people don't want to budge on this. As far as I can tell, my climate is returning to my original plan, being similar to that of western coast Africa, with Monsoons and tropical climate. Which works for Metztlitlalio and honestly is probably better then the original Savanna layout, for once Metztli not being as developed worldbuilding-wide actually helps. And as Creaturae stated, most people who want their climate not changing actually don't appear to be too far off the climate they desire, and water currents are not the only thing that determines climate, so hand waving can be done with ease. However there might be a solution that fixes both the polar nation issues and desertification, and that's not to assume Eurth has the exact same climate period as Earth. Eurth's continents are far more scattered from one another and there appears to be more water on the surface then Earth (although cannot be certain). So we can assume that Eurth may in fact have a climate more akin to the Cretaceous period. Now that doesn't mean dinosaurs, however it does mean that the north-south temperature gradient isn't as significant, meaning it was far warmer in the north and south poles. We don't have to swing entirely one way or another either, and we could have a climate in-between, so the poles have a climate more that of southern Scandinavia or Northern England, with deserts shrunk down, allowing for those who's nations may have become deserts to return to their Mediterranean climates, whilst still allowing for large cold deserts within the interiors of larger continents. This also means larger inland seas and lakes are possible, which are always fun Now obviously there will be drawbacks, I hope you enjoy mass flooding and giant swings in monsoons and cliffs, because the Sea level would be much higher (We can keep the current map and just *say* the sea level is higher on Eurth then Earth.) and destructive waves much more common, as well as tropical storms (hurricanes/typhoons) existing at higher latitudes then on Earth, as well as growing the already large topical climates. But I feel as though this may solve many more issues then it creates. Obviously I'd love to here what others think of this proposal. It may solve our issues or just amplify them, it's only possible to tell once we try simulate the climate map w/ these new parameters. TL;DR dino climate may solve issues.
  11. Tokallē Teōmatilistli a Nēkanatlakasētla Metztlikua Culture #01: "Tlateqopnōsitlame, Taryakanaqōsitlame" "There are workers, there are leaders." To understand Metztlikua culture, then understanding this phrase is a must, as everything is built upon this phrase. Which title a person is given, Taryaka or Tlateqo, plays a massive role on their lives, and can be seen as on the level of one's gender, race, sexuality, within Metztlitlalio. The phrase itself, when broken down to it's simplest form, means that there are two types of people: people who prefer and excel at performing and taking tasks, and other people who prefer and excel at managing and vocalising tasks. Within Metztlikua culture, a government's competency is dictated on how well they can sort the Workers (Tlateqo) and Leaders (Taryaka), and to have as much of the government run by Taryak(ua) to ensure efficiency and strength. As such, it is common for the state to have Taryak(ua)-only schools that take in those who display great leadership skills or are gifted in some instrument or subject, which can cause brain drain within areas around high-government influence but not near the epicentres of government. This bedrock for culture also leads to a hierarchical feudal-like state, however due to this very same culture, a naturally-grown technocracy was formed, as those who were considered incredible leaders within their fields or jobs, are given the option to join the Temple of the All-High if there was an open seat. Once they join they can have a say on the choices that affect their lives and the jobs they represent. This in turn however, makes democracy hard to grow within such a hierarchical culture coupled with the centralised religion. As such, democracy only exists within a couple city-state Kalpolli, the autonomous ethnic Kalpolli, and a several of the most recently created Kalpolli. The rest are dominated by the Tlatonitōnatli and their advisors, who they themselves are Taryaka.
  12. {22,20,14} Tokallē Teōmatilistli a Nēkanatlakasētla The Temple of Religion and Culture (TTaN) The Temple of Religion and Culture holds a large amount of power within Metztlitlalio, being the only recognised equal to the Archpriest within the governmental hierarchy. Many of those who work within the Temple of the Highest also have high ranking power within TTaN due to the nature of the theocracy. The emblem of TTaN represents a person guarding their Alamatli Jewel. An incredibly important religious and cultural stone that almost all Aslo individuals possess. As it represents one's Alamatli and a large part of it is stored within said stone. By law each person much wear their Alamatli Jewel, and if someone steals another person's Alamatli Jewel, the person who was stolen from is legally allowed to punish the offender accordingly, which may include killing or forced labour for a small period of time. What the Jewel is made of is a closely guarded secret by the Temple, and no foreigners to the nation are allowed to examine or take an Alamatli Jewel, even after becoming a convert. Which in the past has caused it to become incredibly difficult to convert to Teōmatilistli. Those of known non-pure Aslo, Tapelt, or Peketeka are barred from ever holding a role within TTaN, which in recent times has come under fire, primarily by the Faloki-Atin. However TTaN has yet to do anything about this. The primary purpose of TTaN is to monitor mass-scale religious and cultural change within Metztlitlalio and act accordingly. As well as the primary branch of the government designated on construction and maintenance of temples both political and cultural-religious, electing and training of priests, retrieving and examining lost religious texts and scriptures(you would think this wouldn't be such a big thing, but 1000s of years of writing and war does lead to a lot being lost, especially being a colony for over a century, half of that being under fascist rule.), and preserving historic artefacts and sites as well as cultural monuments. The Temple of Religion and Culture was established in 1981 by the then Archpriest Itzekotla to help reconsolidate the Teōmati religion, as it had splintered rather badly when Metztlitlalio was a colony. In 1989, it was debated if TTaN should be split into two Temples to reduce corruption and power, but before any legislation could be past, the Tapelt War of Independence broke out, and the idea of splitting the Temple has not been considered since.
  13. Dear Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Holy Imperial Government of @Rihan. From the Ixeloyanakisi of the Metztlitlalio Foreign Affairs office, Oqixatlitetl Yanakiksitla'tosollo. Said paperwork has been pinned with the letter that I am writing to you. As stated within the side document, the chancery is to be built within the Moyotlanoka Kampan of the city of Altepetl Tekaken within the Tekaken Kalpolli. Several locations have been highlighted on the map provided of the Kampan that have been designated as potential sites for construction of the chancery. It is advised once within Metztlitlalio that, using the provided dictionaries and scripts, the academic party heeds the information provided by signs and messages within the new writing script than the outdated version, whilst within the restricted regions said party may see workers switching out the old script with the new one. It is nothing to be wary of, the nation is currently under a transition from the old pictographic writing system to the new syllabic script, and is expected to be completed by this time of writing next year. We apologise for any inconveniences. -Letter approved indirectly by Archpriestess Tletlaxoxitle the II, via the Tlētlik-Akilanani.
  14. Dear Mr Ismail Tian-Han of the @Fulgistan Bureau of Foreign Diplomacy. From the Ixeloyanakisi of the Metztlitlalio Foreign Affairs office, Oqixatlitetl Yanakiksitla'tosollo. For many centuries, our two great states have been intertwined and interacting with one another, and yet despite this theatre of politics and play, we, the Metztlikua, have never been able to formally address the Huang and their friends which reside in Fulgistan. So this letter is being personally written to you, Mr Tian-Han, to formally and officially request the start of a benevolent relationship with one another. Ever since the arrival of the Faloki to the shores of Metztlitlalio, they have proven themselves to be more then simple slaves wrought here by Limonaia, and that they have Metztlitlalio at their heart and voice yet still able to look up and remember their roots. As such, we wish to send a formal ambassador of Faloki heritage, Xolime Yanakiksitla'soenk, to oversee the construction of a small chancery within Bogd Gioro if such a suitable location exists. As stated above, we have hopes for a good willed foreign relationship with such a great nation as yourself. With further development and trade possible within the future. -Letter approved indirectly by Archpriestess Tletlaxoxitle the II, via the Tlētlik-Akilanani.
  15. Metztlilalio Foreign Affairs The Metztli Foreign Affairs office is held by the Ixeloyanakisi, which is currently held by Oqixatlitetl Yanakiksitla'tosollo. Or 'Tosollo for short. Although Metztlitlalio was for the most part an isolationist nation. After 2009 and the end of the Tapelt's liberation war and the joining of Il dominio degli stati Limoniani (Dominion of Limonaian States). Metztlitlalio has come to welcome any foreign invitations, although is hesitant about topics such as cultural exchanges. (This is here to act as an anchor for the thread)
