'''''[[http://dc-nation.dreamwidth.org/profile DC_Nation]]''''' is a [[http://dreamwidth.org Dreamwidth]] (formerly LiveJournal [[JournalRoleplay based collaborative roleplaying community]]) based play-by-blog game set in the pre-reboot Franchise/DCUniverse, ignoring most of DC canon from Infinite Crisis onwards, but allows things in players enjoy. For example, both Jamie Reyes and Ted Kord Blue Beetles are in play and characters who are dead or have been written out of canon (Superboy, Kid Flash, Troia, etc.) alive.

Unlike many LiveJournal/Dreamwidth role-plays, Nation more or less sticks with a consistent storyline and the troupe works more like a writing staff than traditional LJ RP's which tend to be more situation-based. Many (but not all) of the same events of the last 10 years that happened in "Standard" DC will habe happened in Nationverse...but in a different fashion - sometimes subtle, and sometimes wildly diverging. The Green Lantern arcs up until Blackest Night tend to pretty much follow the comics with few alterations. Titans story arcs are more notorious for their divergences. Since Blackest Night, however, the community has had little interest in developing further storylines from the comics, particularly from nu52 because of an obvious difference in vision, direction and now [[AlternateContinuity canon]].

* SpinOff: DC Nation was originally comprised of players from the LiveJournal community JLA Watchtower, and from May of 2004 to April of 2008 (roughly) the continuity of both places is the same. Starting in January of 2008, there was an incident which caused a disruption to the com. Soon after, Watchtower proposed a "Crisis" style story incident that would reset the continuity. Some who wanted to keep the game's storyline chose to form DC Nation where the old continuity would continue.

* TeamMom : Sue Dibny is this for the superhero community. It helps when you're the JLA's political liason officer, used to take the Titans out for ice cream after report cards, and manage the betting odds at Warrior's Bar. Nationverse-Sue is someone even Franchise/{{Batman}} isn't going to cross.

* TheWikiRule : Since the game's been going on for over five years, [[http://dcnation.wetpaint.com/sitemap?t=anon a Wiki]] was created to help [[WhatIsGoingOn potential new players and readers]] and prevent ContinuityLockout.
* WipetheFloorWithYou : Tula vs. Dolphin in a particularly ugly throwdown when the pair finally meet on an even field of battle. Tula had been a ghost hovering over Garth's shoulder for years watching Dolphin use and abuse her still-living ex-lover. Since IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy utterly ''failed'' she had some pent-up rage to take out on Dolphin's person.

* LampshadeHanging: Elements of genuine SilverAge [[WhatDoyouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs silliness]] or [[StopHavingFunGuys over the top]] DarkerAndEdgier material is mocked or shown as an undesirable outcome. Arguably, elements of their own canon are occasionally lampshaded as well.

* NearVillainVictory: Ra's al Ghul's Plague. Millions are dying, the rookie member of Clan Arrow has to give CPR to Superman. The father and son {{Green Arrow}}s have collapsed from exhaustion and the effects of the plague. Even the goddamn Batman is left mortally wounded. But when a last-minute solution is found by a dozen heroes, it roars back in a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

-->'''Green Shield''' (in her CharacterBlog): ''"Hi, Mom. Hi Dad. How's Cape May? Fine? Guess what? I just helped save the world up here. Yeah, all in a days work. Me? Noooo...not at Star U, Mom. I got something rare that was eating my nerves and muscles up - something terminal. No...Mom...Mom...MOM...I'm fine, really. I injected myself with a ton and a half of chemicals and I'm fine. No, I'm not on drugs but I can stop bullets with my abs. Interesting side effect of it all. No. Cyndi's right. I'm not with her. I've been staying with a lady who wears fishnets to work, [[GreenArrow a Buddhist, an AIDS patient, and a LIBERAL!]] Cool huh? Mom, you're NOT dying of a heart attack yet? Wait'll meet my boyfriend. No. He's not a med student. He's 17 and living at a bar with a redneck GreenLantern...but he has no fear, Ma, trust me. No, I haven't been to confession yet, but there's an angel up here on the satellite that says I don't need to...Did I mention the kung fu guy I'm going to be getting my med degree from who calls himself Mid-Night?"''

* ForcefulKiss: During BlackestNight, Cyborg snapped Starfire out of UnstoppableRage brought on by a Red Lantern ring. Her reaction was to stop fighting, plant one of these on him, and fly back into battle. Then again, we ''are'' talking about Starfire...

* CListFodder: Inverted. Many "C-list" characters in the standard DCU are major players here, including the Dibnys, the ComicBook/TeenTitans (who had to be split into ''three'' teams), and even the JSA. By contrast, it has been harder in Nationverse to assemble JusticeLeague plotlines.

* SilverAge and BronzeAge: several of the admins and players mine these eras in all of their cracktastic glory. There's also a great fondness for the Wolfman-Perez Titans run.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: trends more to the idealistic end, but still keeps things like Luthor getting elected president. Includes a strong CapeBusters movement. The game's tone is closer to BronzeAge than anything else. WhiteAndGreyMorality and BlackAndWhiteMorality are used, as many original villains like Duke Kostan and Pharras are [[WellIntentionedExtremist motivated (at least initially) by understandable, if not somewhat noble]], goals.
