If you break it up in the form "Eaisch pnaeiea cgkque bh cieagh podstt ditf" Google Translate will claim that it's transliterated-Arabic (عايزك بنية كجقق به سياجه بدست ديتف) for "I want a structure like a fenced-in fence."

That seems reasonable, right?

EDIT: I should probably clarify that the letters k, q, v, x and z don't exist in the Welsh alphabet.

Yeah that's why I had my doubts in particular. So far I don't recognise this language :(

But that still doesn't sound like Arabic to me

So it wants to have a structure that resembles a fence within a fence? Like a concentric castle, as it were.

Clearly this is a call for greater security or fortification.

Ergo, the Eaischpnaeieacgkque bhcieaghpodsttditf is a terribly long-winded synonym for "castle." Duh.

I, too, would like a structure in the manner of a fence that is itself fenced-in.

So twice in 2012 and 2013, long name answered a thread about how you got your nation's name claiming that if you mix the letters but remove the second capital (which would be the B), then it is related to the company which he worked at that time for.

.... Which raises even more questions. What is a Eaischpnaeieacgkque hcieaghpodsttditf? And what distinct meaning does that have?

Meanwhile, there are a few other clues lying around as to his influences. He regularly uses the Cyrillic script in threads to name locations within the nation, such as a province and the capital city, which is also matched by his entry in the NS wiki (which doesn't have an entry on me so clearly must be worthless btw lol) (also is here for reference:http://nswiki.org/index.php?title=Eaischpnaeieacgkque_Bhcieaghpodsttditf). Now, that could be one of about a dozen notable languages but does also narrow down the list.

Not that that's his own country, since he claimed in multiple occasions to be American, and I don't have a reason to doubt that.

Also, man do I wish I had bought Post-Master General back in like 2015 when I asked him about it. Would have saved me a bit of time- and gotten a more concrete answer.

The Holy Easter Eggs of Einswenn

I am sincerely impressed by your attitude Chan Island. Although I got most of the bolded text on NS Wiki (since I speak Russian and thus more or less understand other Slavic languages that are also used in pretitle) it didn't give me any clue. Neither I can imagine his company name whatever it is. Besides, I've always been bad at charades.

No, the long Welsh name is

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

Iím not Welsh but somehow I am actually able to pronounce it very well, and I use it sometimes to practice certain harder sounds in the IPA.

For those wondering, here's a popular example of that name being spoken...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHxO0UdpoxM

Cameroi

not welsh, but being a fan of railways, and especially narrow gauge railways, i've seen the station sign for llanfair about a zillion times,
and i've heard generally the llanfair part is about as much as anyone normally tries to pronounce. its enough to know what place they're talking about.

other words for the amusement of being long exist, i can think of two of them, but neither are longer.

a castle within a castle would only be sustainable long term if it encompassed a fully functional and self sustaining ecosystem.
which is essentially what you would need for a multi-generational transit to most other solar systems likely to have a life supporting planet.

fun fact: the letters ll in Welsh make the "ch" sounds, the letters au make the "aye" sound and the letters ch make the sound "qh" ( I think that's the phonology for it)

So 2 tourists have just got off the train in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Walking through town they decide to stop for something to eat. One asks the person serving them "Please help settle our argument. Could you very slowly and clearly pronounce the name of where we are?"

The server gives an exasperated sigh and replies "Bur...ger...King."

Eh, Iíd describe the <ll> as an /s/ but with your toungue touching the sides of the mouth, to make a slushy sound.

And as for <ch>, it makes a /χ/ (uvular voiceless fricative)

I got into the rmb without context and thought I was having a stroke until I realized we were talking about long name

Alright folks, I have sent an email to not one, but two people I admire asking for help with something on their area of expertise. Today was a productive day.

I have really been enjoying this back-and-forth on the RMB on the origins of this name, and I admit I myself got tangled up in it a bit, using anagram solvers and decoders to try to decipher it any which way... nothing meaningful ever came up. Then I also dug into this user's posts like Chan Island did and noticed that they have again claimed in an IC context that the capitol building was named... a very long word - which is actually the full time of titin.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:List_of_protologisms/Long_words/Titin

I honestly don't think they really work for an IRL company with a name related to their nation name; if anything, they were probably referring to an IC construct.

But as I looked at his motto: Kdyz jde do tuheho, tezke pouziti jaderne valky
Which IS DEFINETLY czech and means: when it gets tough, heavy use of atomic war,
Although in a factbook it says:
'The actual national motto in "Kdyě jde do tuhťho, těěkť pouěitŪ jadernť vŠlky." This means "When the going gets tough, the tough use nuclear war."'
So I'm afraid that, it's name is random keyboard typing

Maybe it's just a constructed language derived from Czech.

Hi there! I'm sorry if this was shamelessly plugged here before, but I would just like to share some of the pictures I have taken outside, hehe. They span across years - some as old as 2014, some as new as like a week ago!

I do hope you enjoy! <3

Valentine Z's Photography Adventures - Mk. 1

So this is going to be a new non-ICly thing! As some of you can tell by now, I do a lot of photography in my free time! Almost all the time it is a hobby thing - there were times when I do take photos with my family, or friends... and even then, I would not receive any money from it*. Not that I want to, actually. I do this for fun first and foremost, and being able to hone my skills just by taking a lot of photos have been nothing short of fantastic! And hey, you're your own boss in a hobby. I get free reign on where I want to go, and where I want to take shots!

* If in the event that I entered a photo for a competition with actual money involved, I will NOT be using NationStates to promote or involve it in any way, and will not tell about the contest until it's over.

My current equipment is either my phone (Vivo X50+), or my DSLR first and foremost - Nikon D5100, attached with 18-200 mm Tamron Lens.

The Seminomadic Republic of Cat-Herders United

I finally have a map of Cat-Herders United:

Although we are known for our tame cats, each of our regions is known for some variety of small cat, great cat, or feliform.



The coastal wetlands - home of the Linkjungle cat

Natural resources: fish, shrimp, natural gas
  • Felis City (pop. 6.9 million) - former center of fossil fuel industry in less enlightened times, university, rodeo, airport, space program, performing arts (ballet, opera, symphony), museums (Natural History, Fine Arts, Contemporary Arts), medical district

  • Puerto Hierba Gatera (pop 0.7 million) - port servicing Felis City, beaches, shrimp fishing

Did you know? Felis City used to be known as Felix City when it was the center of an empire in the 14th-15th century AD, and was historically the largest city in Cat-Herders United, only recently being surpassed by Santa Gertrudis!

The western mountains Sierra De Los Gatos - home of the Linkmountain cat

Natural resources: gold, grazing land

Did you know? Santa Gertrudis is now the largest city in Cat-Herders United, and is named after St. Gertrude of Nivelles, the patron saint of cats!

The hill country - home of the Linkblack-footed cat

Natural resources: arable land, irrigable land, grazing land, potential for wind power

  • Kštzchenburg (pop. 0.1 million) - farming (grapes and peaches), wine country

  • Scratchiní Post (pop. 0.1 million) - former mining town infamous for its turbulent and lawless past

The desert - home of the Linksand cat

Natural resources: copper, potential for solar power
  • Sphinx (pop. 4.8 million) - copper mining, irrigation (cotton and citrus), cattle herding, electronics industry, university

The woodlands - home of the Linkwild cat

Natural resources: lumber, arable land
  • Wegiewald (pop. 3.9 million) - cow dairy sector, flower cultivation, orchards (apple, cherries, cranberries), theater, historic fish market
