    My country, Kashmir, is a good country. Though I'm not the actual leader of the country itself, I hold a lot of power. A lot of power.

    You see, I'm the Chancellor's second-in-command, his Grand Over-Seer. Chancellor Maynard is old, weak, and cowardly, and holds much less power than he thinks he does (considering I'm the one who controls most of his actions, who tells him what to and not to do).

    At the moment our country is involved in a war between the neighboring country of Aberdeen through guerilla warfare and the like. I'll explain more about my country through these questions:

    What is your country?s name? Kashmir
    What are the citizens called? Kashmirites
    What is your position in this country? Grand Over-Seer

    Everything you didn't want to know about Kashmir

    Background: Kashmir is an ancient land that has seen much strife and fighting throughout its 3000-year existence. Originally known as "Skuskuzappa" and inhabited by barbarian tribes who feuded and eventually killed each other off, leaving the land uninhabited for many years. Eventually the land was permenately inhabited by the tribe of Kashmir (our country named itself after its leader, a fierce warlord), and saw many years of prosperity.

    During the middle ages our country was besieged by the Minahocans, a terrible cult-like race that lived for war. We eventually won the war in the now imfamous battle of Zeppelin, where General Horohor successfully routed the Minahocans by stampeding them from behind. We Kashmirites are known for sneaking up on people and giving it to them from behind. In fact, one of our country's mottos is "From Behind Always".

    We've advanced along with most of society, and haven't fell out of the loop. We're a very advanced nation and have an excellent weapons and defense system, government, and culture.
