I FINALLY got someone to represent Valentine Z's Nature, and she is literally called "Mother Nature".
I am going for a cute and young (but not too young) woman, and of course, something that is very obviously not lewd. Took a while to search, but there she is! Meet Klarissa! :D
Personality: Cheerful and Happy, a little too kind at times to people around her. Loves nature a lot.
Height: 701.04 cm (23 feet)
Weight: 250 kg
Portrait of Klarissa. Source: Unknown at this point. It was from a website of anime-based wallpapers.
Description: A personification of what The Meowvelously Purrfect Utopia of Valentine Z as a nation stands for, Klarissa is the very first personification of Valentine Z, formerly known as the Mother Nature of the world around her. She is usually seen as happy and cheerful just like the rest of the Valentians, though she is much more reserved, and mostly shows her kind attitude towards her actions.
She was commonly known as the Mother Nature from the old world, though the existence of her were a matter of myths and since no one has seen her in real life at those moments. There were a few people who might have seen her, but they either cited amnesia, or that they were uncertain on whether she was Mother Nature herself. When the Cold War happened as usual, she was assumed dead, just like the rest of the unfortunate people and animals that were unable to be saved by the Valentians.
However, when the terraforming efforts come into play and natural sceneries were put back in place, Klarissa came out of her hiding and announced herself as the one from the many myths and legends - Mother Nature. Valentijn then made her to be the very first personification of Valentine Z; Klarissa represents Nature, Anna represents Joy and Happiness, and Cyan would represent the Love for Cats.

Name: Anna “De Eeuwige Vreugde” Caitlin Madeline Brigitte Priscilla Mavis Star Thanda Pwint Thinzar Nwe, Tweede Verpersoonlijking van Valentine Z (Anna “The Eternal Joy” Star, Second Personification of Valentine Z)
Personality: Cheerful, Happy, A little too carefree. Not happy all the time, mind you.
Height: 555.55 cm (18 feet 2 23/32 inches)
Weight: 200 kg
Description: A personification of what The Meowvelously Purrfect Utopia of Valentine Z as a nation emotes for, Anna “Joy” Star is a self-proclaimed entity of the nation itself. According to her, she was a result of a nuclear attack in [DATA REDACTED], USA, having an energetic focus, similar to the one that produced The Heldere n Betoverde Dimensie of Garden at 6th Mile Road, but on a smaller scale. Preliminary tests suggest that she is entirely made out of light, but unlike Holly, she is neither cold nor warm to the human touch and maintains a 25 ± 3 deg. Celsius feel to her body. She initially roamed the destroyed Earth for a couple of days, while somehow evading the detection from the Valentians’ radars and watchful eyes. At those days, she was rather mournful and lamenting about the state that humanity is in, even going as far as to state that, “Perhaps… perhaps we need a new beginning.”
While she spent her time wandering around, the terraforming has begun. She was more or less unaffected by it, and by this time, she realised that it is time for humanity to be cheerful and happy of the life ahead of them instead of sorrowful over the deaths of the past. After all, while tragic as it is, it simply could not be avoided.
She made her way to Aoutpine Yangon and after many convincing, announced that she be made the mascot and representative for Valentine Z and its the bright and solarpunk-themed future. It was also revealed to be her that she sent a “saboteur” to adjust the emotions on Clarissa while she was on her sleep mode, making her into the cheery robot that she is today.
Personality-wise, she suffers from fear of heights, as well as on deep pools of water (oceans, for example). Currently not in relationship with anyone, and not intend to be; Joy prefers to stay single for the rest of her life, if anything. Also has an instinctive fear of internal conflicts – whereby she hates to see her friends and family (back on Earth) physically fighting each other; verbal bickering doesn’t seem to affect her that much. With all that said, she has quite a dislike for downers or people that tends to think negatively, though she is indeed aware that other kinds of emotions can take over a person or a being at any one time.

Primary Attack: A beam of sunlight that blinds enemies for 1 sec. Takes 2 seconds to charge and 100% accurate.
Name: Cyan “Het Eeuwig Vreugdevolle Kat” Laura Arisu Violetta Oriana Kiyota Hijirikawa, Derde Verpersoonlijking van Valentine Z
Personality: Cheerful, Happy, A little paranoid. Tends to have cat-like tendencies.
Height: 360 cm (11 feet 9 47/64 inches)
Weight: 100 kg

Commonly known as a Neko, or a cat-girl, Cyan got into the attention of the Valentians when Gwen and her search party explored deeper into some parts of Japan after the nukes have hit the scene. In a small, unspecified city, they would what was appeared to be an ordinary girl – her clothes were a bit tattered, but miraculously, she seemed to have survived the entire terrible ordeal. As Gwen and the Valentians took her into her plane and started examining her, it appears that she got cat-like qualities – cat ears, cat tail, and the weird behaviour of meowing and purring a few times. Otherwise, she is more or less confirmed to be a human.
It turns out that she was not exactly a product of the radiation; rather, she was an experiment by one of the scientific facilities in order to combine a cat and a human into a… catwoman. The side effect was that while she was knocked down by the shockwave of the nuclear bombs and was rendered unconscious, she was conveniently resistant to radiation. She was given anti-radiation medication by the Valentians, and since it was only 48 hours with heightened resistance to radiation, Cyan was able to just take the medication without needing further treatment.
Other than her cat-like behaviour like purring and meowing at times, she is able to communicate and socialise as a person well, though being half-a-cat, she is a little on the paranoid mindset at times.
So Klarissa represents Nature, Anna represents Joy and Happiness, and Cyan would represent our love for cats. :3
On that note, I would run for Forest Keeper as Alanis Star, but... some other time. Hell week (exams and projects galore, yay!) is coming to me IRL, and I don't think you want to see your Forest Keeper breaking down or disappearing too often. :P
On another note, I would like to ask... how long does a Forest Keeper runs for between the elections?
Ahh... yep, no-go from me! RL is going to be a little hard for me this year. Apart from Term 5 being overall difficult... I also have a surgery due, which will hospitalise me for a few days, then a month-long medical leave.
That's all fine, but... jeez, I'll live with an itchy chin and only being able to be liquid food for those months.
Sorry if this went serious all of a sudden. :/
It's OK mate, the first step to overcoming a problem is acknowledging you have one!
Each day at a time, each day at a time. I'd reccommend browsing the below the line comments on literally any newspaper for 5 minutes a day as an effective substitute for NSG, before eventually weaning yourself off that too.
Question: The New World Assembly vote brought to my mind a question: Is it ethical to allow differing views if those views could/are seen as immoral?
Fascism is pretty awful but RPing it can be okay. How would you react if a friend or close family member told you that they are joining the (wherever you're from) Nazi Party? Also, the nation in question is set up to warn new players before they fall into the various sewers of fascism that exist on NationStates, so it is not forcing anyone to do anything. People who are interested in RPing as fascist nations can simplydisregard the warning and go goosestep around in the CCD or any other regions that embrace fascist ideals.
