* AirborneAircraftCarrier
* BreakingTheFourthWall: The [=YellowApple Aerospace Defense Corps=] has Airborne Aircraft Carriers named after NationStates moderators.
* CasualInterstellarTravel: Achievable thanks to using pony "magic" to create wormholes and jump from one arbitrary point in the universe to another.
* OurTimeTravelIsDifferent: Specifically, a hybridization between Wormhole Time Travel and Instantaneous Time Travel. Occasionally results in accidental time travel when attempting jumps and miscalculating when creating the exit point (an [=RP=] detailing this is expected to occur soon, but this is understood to be a common occurrence in some early [=YellowApplan=] wormhole transit tests.
* OurWormholesAreDifferent: In the sense that [=YellowApplan=] wormholes are created and stabilized via the use of physics-bending (specifically, the manipulation of negative energy densities to create localized regions of negative mass to achieve all kinds of things) reverse-engineered from unicorn magic. See OurTimeTravelIsDifferent above.
* RunningGag: The constant references to what a shaking of hand and hoof should be called. Whenever a pony and human greet, and one is a [=YellowApplan=], the [=YellowApplan=] will invariably ask him/herself whether it's a "handshake" or "hoofshake" and distract him/herself with the train of thought.
* SpaceFighter: [=YellowApplan=] fighters are this, since they're capable of trans-atmospheric flight and therefore can operate both in the atmosphere and in space. This is why the [=FT=] craft still have wings and other aerodynamic surfaces: so they can dogfight planetside.

!!Blue Belle
Once a relatively-innocent office assistant, she became an ass-kicking diplomat.
* BreakTheCutie: Happened in the political operation that killed her supervisor and got her promoted for her miraculous survival. Suffers from severe [=PTSD=] as a result, and leads to an occasional violent side.
* PostVictoryCollapse: Experienced once after a firefight/knifefight/fistfight/hooffight with a bunch of Canadian assassins. Blood loss from a bullet wound in her flank was the official cause of her eventually passing out, but she only passed out ''after'' she had kicked Sarah Palin's Alaskan rear and mopped the floor with her.

With her adoptive parents - Administrator Amarillo Manzano and his fiance Samantha Cereza - dead from an Angrivantian suicide bombing, leaving Fostera orphaned and having to attend public school, this causes additional torment for apparently having a "weird medical condition that requires her to remain clothed at all times" (really, just her hiding her wings to avoid attention), and eventually culminates with the world trying to kill her when word gets out that she's an alicorn.

Granted, he's not exactly ''royalty'', but his position of power is akin to a quasi-autocratic monarch.

* MadeOfIron: Chancellor Maven Auryn of Crystal Spires seems to have a proclivity towards getting shot by everything from AAA shells to standard bullets, and living. Averted and played straight. Maven has suffers permanent damage from some of these attempts on his life, but he believes to show weakness would be fatal because Crystal Spires is a DeathWorld which showing such weakness would be fatal, so he pretends nothing is wrong, and goes to work.

They declared all out hostility with the intention to fully exterminate one another leading to massacres on all sides. In the ensuing impurity, [[DespairEventHorizon Maven lost faith in sapient beings]], and Zaiden became massively corrupted. He decided to [[WellIntentionedExtremist bring peace to the lands]] [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique using an ancient method]], which resulted in [[WorldWreckingWave tearing a hole into the Ethereal plane. This forced the free energy to cover the entire plane of Mystria which threw it into the world theater]], ripping apart the continent and splitting Yesopalitha from the mainland, and the result was a [[ApocalypseHow massive extinction of all life]], but of course with the power of the Flower of Zaiden, [[DeathIsCheap Zaiden was able to resurrect all life]], [[BrainBleach purging their memory]] at the cost of [[DamagedSoul the near total obliteration of his soul]], forcing him to consume the innocence from Maven's soul to sustain himself. While Mystrians have no recollection of the whole conflict,[[TheExtremistWasRight the massacres ended, leading to a tense but relative peace.]] Everyone was under the impression that the world did not end, but the visions of the end during the shift were merely [[GoMadFromTheRevelation a collective hallucination]], due to the exposure to the [[EldritchLocation Ethereal plane]].

Sometimes called the region's industrial heart, the Dominion of the Lubyak is a state that thrives on both HobbesWasRight and DemocracyIsBad. It pursues a foreign policy heavily steeped in [[Realpolitik]], being known for being willing to do almost anything to preserve its own interests, leading to it being viewed by many of the more idealist nations as a 'villain' state. The truth of this heavily depends on which side of the line you stand on. Some view the Dominion as a heartless state with a policy of DespotismJustifiesTheMeans, while others view it as a rather benign state.

Added DiffLines:

!Roleplay/YellowApple
A flying [[MegaCorp corporate wonderland]], with an underwater city, [=YellowApple=] joined the Coalition to expand their marketing capabilities, specifically by advertising its pony-friendly products to pony nations ''en masse'' via Coalition membership. Notable for its use of CamelCase both in its name (which many players have trouble with to the chagrin of the player behind [=YellowApple=] and in the names of most [=YellowApplan=] products. It is among the few "future-tech" members of the [=CoPS=] and incorporates elements from WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic directly into the technology base.

[[Roleplay/YellowApple Has its own TVTropes page.]]

* AirborneAircraftCarrier
* BreakingTheFourthWall: The [=YellowApple Aerospace Defense Corps=] has Airborne Aircraft Carriers named after NationStates moderators.
* CasualInterstellarTravel: Achievable thanks to using pony "magic" to create wormholes and jump from one arbitrary point in the universe to another.
* OurTimeTravelIsDifferent: Specifically, a hybridization between Wormhole Time Travel and Instantaneous Time Travel. Occasionally results in accidental time travel when attempting jumps and miscalculating when creating the exit point (an [=RP=] detailing this is expected to occur soon, but this is understood to be a common occurrence in some early [=YellowApplan=] wormhole transit tests.
* OurWormholesAreDifferent: In the sense that [=YellowApplan=] wormholes are created and stabilized via the use of physics-bending (specifically, the manipulation of negative energy densities to create localized regions of negative mass to achieve all kinds of things) reverse-engineered from unicorn magic. See OurTimeTravelIsDifferent above.
* RunningGag: The constant references to what a shaking of hand and hoof should be called. Whenever a pony and human greet, and one is a [=YellowApplan=], the [=YellowApplan=] will invariably ask him/herself whether it's a "handshake" or "hoofshake" and distract him/herself with the train of thought.
* SpaceFighter: [=YellowApplan=] fighters are this, since they're capable of trans-atmospheric flight and therefore can operate both in the atmosphere and in space. This is why the [=FT=] craft still have wings and other aerodynamic surfaces: so they can dogfight planetside.

[[folder: YellowApplans]]

!!Blue Belle

Once a relatively-innocent office assistant, she became an ass-kicking diplomat.

* BreakTheCutie: Happened in the political operation that killed her supervisor and got her promoted for her miraculous survival. Suffers from severe [=PTSD=] as a result, and leads to an occasional violent side.
* PostVictoryCollapse: Experienced once after a firefight/knifefight/fistfight/hooffight with a bunch of Canadian assassins. Blood loss from a bullet wound in her flank was the official cause of her eventually passing out, but she only passed out ''after'' she had kicked Sarah Palin's Alaskan rear and mopped the floor with her.

!! Fostera "Frankie" Manzano

With her adoptive parents - Administrator Amarillo Manzano and his fiancee Samantha Cereza - dead from an Angrivantian suicide bombing, leaving Fostera orphaned and having to attend public school, this causes additional torment for apparently having a "weird medical condition that requires her to remain clothed at all times" (really, just her hiding her wings to avoid attention), and eventually culminates with the world trying to kill her when word gets out that she's an alicorn. She eventually overcomes this and becomes the Third Administrator and Voice of YellowApple.

* OrphansOrdeal: Stated above.

!! Amarillo Manzano

Adoptive and deceased father of the aforementioned Fostera Manzano, and first (and so far longest-reigning) Administrator and Voice of [=YellowApple=].

* {{Fiction500}}: At least at first (in the [=YellowApplan=] backstory), where Amarillo uses his wealth (and corporate funding) to build a ''giant flying city''. Said flying city was named Manzanopolis Prime and became the capitol city of the Nomadic Peoples of [=YellowApple=].
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: [=YellowApplan=] Administrator Amarillo Manzano, who has at least in one instance (according to [=YellowApplan=] backstory) fought alongside [=YellowApplan=] forces when defending a chunk of Del Tangerino that crashed into Angrivantis; if it weren't for him (both from his sheer combat ability as a mostly-robotic fighting machine and from the significant morale boost of his presence), it would not have been a [=YellowApplan=] victory. Granted, he's not exactly ''royalty'', but his position of power is akin to a quasi-autocratic monarch.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Averted in the later years of his life, but played straight in the earlier ones when he used his monetary might to rule [=YellowApple=] with an iron fist.[[/folder]]
