OK, so we get to choose our nation's flag, currency, motto and animal, but there are plenty of things nations in reality get to choose that we don't. So, let's just do it here! Choose only one item for each category below, unless specified otherwise.

National Flower
National Anthem
Official Language(s)
Official Religion
Native Tribe Name(s)

Have fun! :D

Note: Yes I do know real nations can't choose the name of their native tribe(s) but that doesn't mean we can't.

Barringtonia
17-07-2007, 02:59
National Flower: A virgin chosen by the Grand Duke himself - The Deflowering is a national holiday held every mid-March to usher in the new year as well as an attempt to claim the kid as the new Jesus if born on the 25th December - it's good to be Duke. To be the National Flower is a great honour, up until the ritual sacrifice on the 1st January, when it kind of sucks.

National Anthem: Our House by Madness - may only be sung when drunk - it's the law.

Official Language(s): All laws and legal documents are drafted in Welsh, which is banned for learning, this is so no laws are actually understood and the police can arrest who they like on the whim of the Grand Duke

Official Religion: Money, we worship it, those who don't have it can expect to have their rights trampled on incessantly by those who do.

Native Tribe Name(s): The Disneys, all kept at our theme park, Disneyland, where they dress up, prance about and are generally ridiculed by normal citizens for a small entrance fee.

Tis a fine country indeed.
