Misberian Culture

Overview:

The culture of Misberia comprises a shared heritage and culture primarily in New England that is shaped by its indigenous peoples, early English colonists, and waves of immigration from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. In contrast to other American regions, many of New England's earliest Puritan settlers came from eastern England, contributing to New England's distinctive accents, foods, customs, and social structures.

Activities:

In Misberian culture folk music and outdoor activities make up the majority of the social activities of Misberia. besides folk music and outdoor activities the nation enjoys board games and video games such as Minecraft. The citizens of Misberia are very out going and have made hiking and swimming a major part of the social events that occur in the nation. Misberia has proclaimed a day every week as Day of Reconnection, in which citizens disconnect from roles in the government and on the internet and spend the day outside or with their families, Archie Birch is known to work every day of the week and usually ignores this holiday.

Accent:

There are several American English accents spoken in Misberia including New England English. The New England English dialect is native to the region. Many of its most stereotypical features (such as r dropping and the so-called broad A) are believed to have originated in Boston from the influence of England's Received Pronunciation, which shares those features. While some Boston accents are most strongly associated with the so-called "Eastern Establishment" and Boston's upper class, the common accent is locally prevalent and predominantly associated with blue-collar natives exemplified by movies like Good Will Hunting and The Departed. The Boston accent and accents closely related to it cover eastern Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine.

Misberian:

On 26 December 2018, Archie Birch and Jack Reach decided they wanted to create their own language and have it used by the national government of Misberia. The language is a mix of Germanic and Romance languages, it is usually spelled using English pronunciations with the mix of Germanic and romance letter soundings. The language uses the old Anglo Saxon language script Elder Futhrak. The language has been slow to create but currently has over 750 words over the last two years.

Religion:

Misberia has no official language but Christianity of some form is represented by over eighty percent of the population. The nation also has a small Pagan and Buddhist representation in the nation. Most citizens of Misberia attend the same church in Songo and are known to discuss Misberia and her on goings during Sunday School. The nation is considering adding a patron saint for the nation but has yet to be decided upon.

Calendar System:

The nation has adopted its own calendar with the Gregorian Calendar split into four months along the solstices and equinoxes and the beginning year of the calendar is 1492 for the representation on when Europeans started coming to North America. The months are named after Wabanaki Native American gods.
