About This Quiz

Creating fictional nations is a tradition as old as language. Biblical stories reference civilizations that probably never existed. The ancient Greeks, African cultures, Asian empires, and American tribes all had legends and myths referencing fictitious civilizations. Medieval Europeans had stories of fictional kingdoms, some of which "invited" crusaders to the Holy Land, and writers from the Renaissance to today have invented alien kingdoms, religious nations, and ancient empires, all here on Earth.

Thomas Moore, J. R. R. Tolkien, Marvel Comics, writers of all genres and all stripes have invented fictional lands for their characters and stories to inhabit. Some of these places are idyllic paradises, while others are unforgiving wastelands designed to provide the maximum amount of struggle for the heroes of these stories. What they all have in common is that they are all fascinating.

Have you ever read a story about a place that seemed so real you could reach out and touch it? Have you ever wanted to? What form do your dreams take and why would you want to go to such a strange land? It's time to think hard about your priorities because when you take this quiz, we will tell you which fictional country you should live in!
