Capitalia

Posted by andrepoiy on 8 October 2017 in English (English)

So, I have settled on a name for my new country, which is Capitalia. (I got the name out of capitalism, since this country is a "fanatic capitalist" state.)

I also made a wiki page, which, is pretty empty. I'm not very good at making wiki pages...

But anyways, here's the link: http://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/Capitalia

Location: M. Vojnic Street, Molento, Capitalia

Are you sire that name is appropriate? No state would realistically be named after their related ideology. Maybe try coming up with a unique culture from which a name could be derived? For example, Litvania comes from the ancient Syrillangan word Lid (Lyd), which means "peoples". Historically, Litvanians were called "Lidvanye", so the name was eventually adopted for the country.

Seriously, try to be unique and creative, don't be too obvious, that's not a positive trait.

Cheers!

Although I do agree with Litvania on this. It would be a good idea to have the common name of a country devised from a more 'organic' origin. Of course, you could still mention capitalism in the 'long' official name of your country. Be careful with the dollar sign on the flag as well, as it is a real-world symbol that, regardless of its presence on OGF, would be unlikely to appear on any flag.
