Canada and Narwhalandia

Canada is similar to Narwhalandia in many ways. The main way is that they have a federation and representative democracy. However, Canada has a parliament, while Narwhalandia uses a two-house system. Also, Canada has a market economy while Narwhalandia has a mixed one, but they are both strong economies. The way jobs work is also different because of the economies. Canadians also speak English (as well as French, which Narwhalandians don’t), and also has a mix of cultures. People come to Canada from a variety of different countries, and i is therefore a mix. Table manners in Canada are also very alike, with rules like no elbow on the table. One of the main things with appearance that is similar is the appearance of them. Canadian women are unlikely to wear jewelry or makeup, wich is much like Narwhalandians. The climate of Canada is also much like that of Narwhalandia, considering that they are neighboring states. One of the main differences is, of course, religion. While about 70% of Canada is made up of Christians, about 97% of Narwhalandia is made up of Narwhalists, assuming that there aren’t many religious crossovers. Also, Canadians use up resources more quickly than Narwhalandians. These are some of the many similarities and differences between Canada and Narwhalandia.

Please note: The United States is most similar but I’m not allowed to write about that.

Human Regions

Some common similarities between Narwhalandians are the religion (about 97% of the population is composed of Narwhalists) and language (most people speak English).These ideas and many more make Narwhalandia its own region, because they have their own religion so no other country could be part of it. However, other characteristics, such as foods and building styles, are more alike to the United States, making Narwhalandia also a part of that region.

Daily Life in Narwhalandia

Child (age 7): A child at the age of seven would wake up and go on the bus or have their parents drive them to school. They would then go through their school day and go home or stay for an after school program. What they do has to do greatly with what their parents do.

 

Adult Woman (Age 30): At wakeup, a Narwhalistic Narwhalandian woman would arise and cook meal for the family. Then she would call them down and they would pray to the Holy Narwhal for a good day. Then they would eat there meal and she would clean and prepare the kids for school. After this, she would go to her job. When her job is done, she would go home and make her kids snack. Then she would have some relaxing time while the children did homework before making dinner.

 

Adult Male (Age 30): Men have similar lives to women, except males dominate their family at night, while females do in the morning. This means that the father would lead their family in praise of the Holy Narwhal and help his wife make dinner.

 

Jobs: After graduating school, children take a test to find a suitable career that will help people and interest them. Some of these jobs include architects, teachers, and artists.

Appearance

Narwhalandians dress casually, with men wearing khakis, jeans, and a variety of shirts. Women tend to wear Leggings and skirts or jeans, and skirts and dresses are for more formal areas, such as workplaces or dining out for dinner. Narwhalandians tend to care more for comfort and expression than appearance, and they don’t judge each other’s clothing preferences. Some gestures originating from this country include the gesture of saying “May you be well” which is putting the index horn to the head as if a unicorn/narwhal horn and hugging the other person’s horn with it, making a finger knot. This means this because the narwhal is a holy and spiritually good character to Narwhalandians. Another gesture is the fluttering of the tongue while making a noise. This is like an announcement saying “I am here!” or “Attention!” even a simple “Yo!”. This is because the sound is a casual sound showing happiness and joy, but at the same time call attention to oneself.

Food

Narwhalandians eat a large variety of food, from hamburger to tacos. This is because the people are from many different origins, and so they all eat different foods. All of these foods have been changed slightly to make a new style of food: Narwhalandian food. Some of the citizens favorites are Dumplings (from Chinese origin), Latkes (Jewish origin [specifically from Ashkenazic Jews] or Polish origin, really any country that eats potato pancakes), and Crepes (French origin). Pasta is also a commonly seen dish. The only food that is illegal is the narwhal (and all narwhal related food products), but foods such as fish are strongly discouraged, as they could lead to the heinous idea of eating narwhals. Narwhalandia doesn’t really have any particular delicacies, being such a melting pot of cultures and all. There aren’t many foods that are native to just Narwhalandia, except for the fact that all of the other foods have been Narwhalandianized and aren’t what the other countries truly eat.

Religion

Narwhalandians are allowed to worship whoever they please, and follow any religion, but the main one people choose is  Narwhalism. Narwhalism is a religion that follows the Heavenly Narwhal as its leader. Every year, on New Year’s Day, a group of five chosen religious leaders called the Worshippers of the Great Horn travel to the island closest to Antarctica by boat. When they arrive, they will await the narwhals. Around six days later, they will hear the first call, and approximately 32 days after that, the first narwhal will be spotted. At this point, the Worshippers of the Great Horn will do a religious ceremony claiming this narwhal as the Heavenly one and sail back with one oil painting of it, showing its greatness. On the day of the Worshippers of the Great Horn’s arrival, a great feast is held, in celebration of the new chosen narwhal. But the day after is a day of fasting, where people feel absolute sorrow for those narwhals that have died. This fast is also for the previous year’s Heavenly Narwhal, which sacrifices itself for the country of Insula as a peace-offering to stop their war. This offering happens at exactly 12:36:44. The whole holiday is called Leader Day, because the religion’s new leader is chosen. The time of Leader Day when the Worshippers of the Great Horn leave is called Departure. The time during which the Worshippers await the first narwhal call and spotting is called the Waiting Days. The day of the sight is First Seen Day, and the day that the worshippers arrive  back is Arrival. Lastly, when the previous Heavenly Narwhal sacrifices itself for its people, it is called Sacrificial Day. Some other holidays in Narwhalism include The Day of the Chosen: when the next Worshippers of the Great Horn are chosen, Narwhal Day: which is on the 11th of every month and the 23 of May, and Migration Day, which celebrates the narwhals coming north, because Narwhalistic tales say that the narwhals used to be more southern oriented, until Insula ate them. Of course, this also brings up the festival of war, which honors the soldiers whoo joined the war between Narwhalandia and Insula. Narwhalandians are also known to frequently celebrate days such as Tau Day and International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
