* EvilLawyerJoke - Subverted with Amanda Bela: As an attorney she has the power to win any case ''only'' if the side she's arguing for is truly in the right.
** In the Hearth's Warming Eve story, an underhanded and chronically lying character is rhetorically asked what sorts of role he expects to play in his rigidly militaristic society if he continues his behavior. One of his responses? "A court-martial attorney."

The self-given, and probably most fitting description of the RP: '' "'It's supposed to make ''sense''?'" Some characters are from the nations created by their users, while others are...of uncertain nature. A reading of the [[http://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=222617 effin' manual]] says: "'We have anthros, velociraptors, gods, demons, angels, cyborgs, robots, magic users and mystical beings, warriors/soldiers/super soldiers, average mortals, A.I.s, thieves, spies, emperors, mad scientists, and whatever Bones and his brothers are. Anime seems to be a big theme, followed by offshoots of various pantheons and fiction.'" ''

In a more clear nutshell: Personification Life takes place in the fictional country of Bielefeld (no, [[IThoughtItMeant not the one you're thinking of...]]), and is centered around the lives of the residents of an apartment complex located on "42nd Subabsurdus Street" (frequently referred to simply as, "the Building"). The residents come from all walks of life across the multiverse (as described above), with the esoteric properties of the apartment complex itself allowing them to coexist. While the RolePlay primarily focuses on wacky, sometimes nonsensical, {{Slice of Life}} scenarios between individual characters, as well as individual story arcs, it in fact does have a primary plot that undertones the rest of the average play which, while never explicitly stated, seems to at least ''partially'' involve the residents' inadvertent role in setting up the beginning steps toward the rise of the future as depicted in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. This, however, is never confirmed nor denied, as the RolePlay continues to center itself mainly around the stories of individual characters and groups, as created by their players.

Among many others, some genre that is currently in use includes ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'', Franchise/CthulhuMythos, ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', Franchise/StarWars, Franchise/StarTrek, Franchise/JurassicPark, ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', and ''Series/DoctorWho'', as well as numerous original concepts and creations. AllMythsAreTrue, but some figures and pantheons are relegated to control by certain players. {{Mythopoeia}} also comes into play (Kei, Pearlelei, etc.).

one location. The universe is in peril, and Demens—one of the Greater Beings, entities greater than gods who are responsible for the formation of the universe—is determined to use the residents to save it.

The location of the Building shifts at different points in the story. Originally set in a city known as Vafflehelm, it was most famously located on 42nd Subabsurdus Street in the city of Bielefeld (no, [[IThoughtItMeant not the one you're thinking of...]]) before subsequently being relocated to Gallimaufry, Demens' personal world. SliceOfLife still plays a big role despite the overarching plot, and side stories involding comedy, adventure, and romance can always be expected.

* ArtifactTitle - The roleplay was originally a branch-off of the "Meanwhile, in your nation..." thread, intended to solely star characters who were literal or metaphorical personifications of their players' nations. However, people quickly began to introduce more original concepts and characters based on other franchises and genres outside their NationStates canon, until the actual "personifications" were inevitably outnumbered. Thus, not only is the title "Personification Life" an artifact, but as are many of the names of the older characters (Bran, NVE, Swith, etc.).

* ParodySue - Emperor King Lord Sir General Nuke [=McBadass=] [=NotHitlerButHitler=] Awesome the Third, the star of a non-canonical oneshot who serves as a parody of the countless overly badass and smug male dictator characters often found on NationStates, as well as the poor writing habits that often accompany them. He is described as, ''"[A] a suave, dark, learned gentleman who was never caught off guard or perplexed, always walking about with a self-assured smile upon his lips and even had the decency to refrain from sighing whenever he calmly explained his superiority to upstarts. There was no question for which he didn't have the answer, no atrocity or battle plan with which he did not regard with total casualness, no extreme he did not see as merely an everyday reality of walking in his shoes. He was the man that Hitler and Napoleon and Stalin's bastard three-way love baby conceived in a mass grave on Halloween night aspired to be, and he looked damn good in a suit while doing it,"'' and has an irrational hatred for democracy, veganism, and Equestrian ponies. The setting, however, does not play along with him and he promptly gets his ass beat by Giovenith.
