Added DiffLines:

* TheFederation: In the larger scope of things, Earth Kingdom is more of a collection of states with the Monarch of Ba-Sing Se as the influential leader rather than a single authority. As a result, many states like Omashu maintained their own rulers while connecting with other states via common culture.
* TheKingdom: Despite its fair share of GeneralRipper and SleazyPolitician, Earth Kingdom is generally mostly benevolent at least until [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Hou-Ting]] succeeded the throne.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: While the political situation of the Earth Kingdom (particularly in the capital of Ba Sing Se) parallels that of the Qing Dynasty's last days, its culture draws from every Chinese dynasty; Toph's family wears Tang-era clothing, Aunt Wu's usage of oracle bones for divination comes from the Shang Dynasty, etc. It also has areas influenced by Vietnamese tribal cultures (the Foggy Swamp Tribe, despite their Mississippi Delta accent), pre-Meiji Japan (Kyoshi Island), the Gobi Desert (the Shi Wong desert), and Korea (as seen with the hanbok worn by Song in the episode "Cave of Two Lovers"), each paralleling a real-life tributary held by Imperial China. [[spoiler:After the Earth Kingdom falls, the parallels extend to early 20th-century China, with warlords and bandits running loose until a revolutionary nationalist despot is finally able to reunite the country.]]

And finally, in the sequel series The Legend of Korra, we meet an Earth Kingdom villain clearly based off the Chinese communist revolutionary Chairman Mao Zedong.

** The Northern Tribe is more of a city, with a more structured outlook on life and has more waterbending tutors available, due to not being as involved in the war.
** The Southern Tribe is more of a hut village, has a more loose outlook on life and has lost more people to the war by the start of the series.

* SlobsVersusSnobs: There are elements of this existing in the series between members of the Northern and Southern Water Tribes where Northerners view the Southerners to be low-class slobs and peasants while the Southerners view the Northerners as elitist snobs and oppressive aristocrats. This boils into a civil war between the two tribes in the Legend of Korra storyline.

* ElementalPowers: One of the main advantages of being bonded with Raava is that the Avatar can use all four of the elements, air-, water-, earth- and firebending, instead of just the one like everyone else. Even then the Avatar can mostly only use one at a time. With the Avatar State active they can use all four at the same and with a tremendous power boost.

Even then the Avatar can mostly only use one at a time. With the Avatar State active they can use all four at the same and with a tremendous power boost. Their ability to use multiple elements also makes it easier for the Avatar than other benders to apply bending techniques across elements, such as redirecting lightning by applying Waterbending principles to Firebending.


Added DiffLines:

* MasterOfAll: The purpose of each Avatar's training is to turn them into one of these, mastering all four elements to an even greater degree than normal benders who have been training for decades.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: The Southern Water Tribe borrows from various Polynesian and Native American cultures, specifically the Inuit culture, while the architecture of the Northern Water Tribe capital also adds a heavy dose of Chinese and bits of Nordic influence.
