Hello Friends, Im Andy Rooney, Tonight I would like to talk to you about Travelogues, those good old films where some pompous studio type would tell you about a country he has never been to but actually just reads from a National Geographic while they show stock footage filmed 5 years ago.
Well, lets get started.

Rules of posting, post as though you were a old New anchor, like Andy, Walter Kronkite, or some other classic (and most probably dead )
Also no RP, jsut national descriptions, make them sound like an old Travelogue, or Nature show.

The Tourist Brochure
A little history,
origianlly founded around 1500 years ago, when the leaders of the thirteen tribes jsut happened ot converge upon the grounds where Infinite City now stands each claiming to be led there by strange visions of light and nightmares of teh times to come when teh potatoes will not grow. the decided to found a city, at the junction of the two great rivers,
that city state grew into a nation, over teh years the tribes intermingled and married, so that now only 7 of the tribal names still exist and their lands have been abosrbed by neighboring regions, and only remembered in teh local cities where their name s are pased down in local history.
the nation passed into its first golden era about a hundred years after its birth, when the philisophical age began, when the people pretty much sat around thinking about stuff, kinda like ancient greece, they got respwect enen though a lot of the calssical truths they discovered have been debunked and or replaced by scientific proofs. th eonly thing that people stil agree on when it comes to the classical age is steam baths and other hygenic related things.
everything progressed as one would expect unitl Louie of Birkenstock, began preaching his return to teh caveman days, wheras teh people prompthly abandoned all their society and for the next hundred or so years, and lived like idiots this time is called the age of stupidity.
once the people realized that those ideas aout hygene were really good, they began trying to return to their old societal levels, and all progressed as it should until 1941 when the Race, a lizard race from Tau Ceti, invaded, four long years of fighting yeilded a truce, and to this day, Infinite Loop is goverened by both the Humans and Lizards.
for a time Infinite loop's military was sent to invade other nations, however they have settled into a new era of peace.

are you tired of your daily grind, need a new diversion to rejuvinate your tired spirit, then come on and visit Infinite Loop,
located southeast of Ineptia along the coast of Prudentia, founded 500 or so years ago, many of our records from this time have been lost due to the great age of stupidity when due to the teachings of the new age Guru Louie of birkinstock taught his heretical "return to the caveman days" lifestyle,

Why overwhelm yourself with the bustling life of the city? How 'bout a relaxing vacation? Well, the Northern Mountains Retreat is a perfect fit!
Haven't you always dreamed of a serene get-away? To have the cool summer winds blow gently against hair? Do you enjoy skiing? Or mountain-climbing? Well, the Northern Mountains Retreat offers all this and much more.

Firstly, if it's skiing you want: visit the West Side Skiing Resort portion of our 500-acre resort. A few comments before we continue:
West Side Skiing is just all-out fun for the entire family. We skiied for hours and hours and topped the day off by relaxing in WSSR's top-quality jacuzzis and feasting on the most delicious and elegant meals I've eaten in years. It's worth it!

I love WSSR!

Supper was fabulous. So was the skiing. I encourage everyone to pay a visit at least for one week per year!

You hear that? Nothing but praise. But anyway, if skiing isn't your "thing", then take a shot at climbing Mt. Caesar, a towering six-mile climb to the top! Reward yourself and get into shape at the same time!

So you just wanna relax and "chill out?" Well, we've got acres of open fields with the softest and greenest grass you'll EVER see or touch. Have a picnic with the family and enjoy the views. You won't regret it.

Hmmm... how about seeing and absorbing some authentic history? Ever marveled the Romans? Well, you'll be glad to visit to New Rome.
We'll be blunt. New Roman Resorts were ranked #1 in Customer Service last year. A nice asset, eh? Friendly staff and interesting places to visit. Well, first we have the 2nd Colosseum. Yes, 2nd. It was built by Roman colonists in 188 A.D. as the exact replica of the one in Rome. Hell, New Rome basically IS Rome... with a few exclusive New Genoese additions, of course.

Now, the 2nd Colosseum. You can either take a historical tour of the it.... OR you can actually ATTEND a simulated gladiator fight and watch 'em duke it out like it would've been done back two-thousand years ago. We incorporate top-notch artificial AI to accomplish this feat. Oh, and you can wear the same apparel a Roman noble would've. Throughout the day you'll learn neat and educational facts about gladiatorial fights, while you enjoy the action.

So, that's the Colosseum. What else is there to visit? How about a Roman theater play? Perhaps a chariot race to watch. That's JUST the historical essence of New Rome. The nightlife here is absolutely wonderful, with lively clubs and bars.

New Rome is located on Lake Genoa, the largest fresh-water lake in The Allied Powers, loaded with fish to catch for one of those quiet summer days. Don't miss out.
