Me and a few of my fellow fanatics have been playing a game lately called Nation States, where you design your own country, with your own flag, currency and so on. Now it’s good fun, and it’s a great idea for a game, but the amount of stuff you can do with your country is pretty limited, and you can’t interact with the other countries at all. But, it occured to me that the idea of the game might work well on this very forum, with more of an F1 theme.
So, for my fellow geography loving F1 fans, I thought I’d create this thread. The idea is that we choose a Formula 1 team, driver, circuit etc and base a fictional country around it. We can come up with capital cities, religions, currencies, national flags, political parties, natural features, GDP, and so on, all related to the subject we’ve chosen.
So, for example, if I was to choose Ferrari, the country might be called Scuderiland, a tyrannical regime led by the evil Colonel Montezemelo from his lair atop Mt Modena, the capital could be Todtown, the longest river might be the Schumi, the health service might be crippled from excessive use of Marlboro cigarettes… whatever you can think of, just try and be imaginative. And then, when we have a few different F1 nations, we can pit them against each other in an all out GP war, and stuff like that
