Our name for our culture is Dagwood. We, the two inventors of this culture both love the aspect of living in the forest. We chose that living in the forest would be hard for both the people and the forest. So our number one rule is no huge pollution due to the fact that we live in the forest. The word “Dagwood” means a shining forest. We decided to name our culture that is because we do have a very special celebration called “Light Up the Forest” We made up this celebration because we want the light to represent everyone feelings about living and protecting nature and our forest. During this celebration, everyone has to light up an LED light to brighten up the forest, we chose to light up an LED light instead of a candle is for safety reasons. We don’t want the forest or the people to be in danger. This is why we chose to make our culture name “Dagwood”.
Well, we live in the meadow forest and in a modern city. In the forest, we highly disagree on big pollution by the people, we do this to not cause the forest to be polluted. We would like people to be as safest as they can in the forest. Living in the forest is a big part of our culture, the reason why we chose to live in the forest is because we want to carry on our generation, way back when our ancestors lived in the forest too. Another big reason is we care a lot and also love nature. We also use bridges to get around, we do not use roads. We like the idea of brides because we think it’s creative and exciting to just walk on bridges, no roads, nothing else. We all are trying to be as eco friendly as we can because we don’t want to destroy our home.
We also live in a modern city, in the modern city is where we pollute a bit more, where all the factories are, where we mainly make money to live. But all the pollution we try to keep it as far away as possible from the people that live here. We have roads in the city, unlike in the forest where we use bridges to get around. Because around here we use transports like cars, motorbikes. But these cars and motorbikes are battery powered. We do this because we are scared it will pollute the city and more important the forest.
We have a split in the middle of our city, half is a forest and half is a modern city. We thought, if we live in the forest, why not have all houses made in a tree house style. These houses are made out of wood, we build our houses in a very safe way, to protect the people. We like living in tree houses because we all this got passed down by our ancestors and we would like to keep it going. Keeping our ancestors creations is a big thing for us. We also love nature and the forest itself, this is another reason why we live in tree houses. In the city we live in modern houses, we chose to live in modern houses because all of us also love the look of modern things, another thing is we wanted to compare the old with the new. By that we mean compare the olden days with the modern days. But we still wanted to keep the aspect of living in the forest.
In our forest we also have a monument, it is a heart made out of bushes. This is to represent our love for nature and to protect nature. We all take care of nature, preventing our forest to get destroyed. Another monument, we have it located in our city, it is a skyscraper tree house this is to represent the forest, for the people who lives in the city, it is made out of wood, we have steels to hold it up high. It is also used to represent protecting the forest and nature
Our language we speak is English because our culture had developed english from others since the beginning and also it’s an easy and international language. We also had many foreigners, from the past, we also developed from them too. Our ancestors used to travel all around the countries, they had learned to speak many different languages, this had been also passed down to us. Our county speak all kind of languages, from English, Chinese, German and many more.
It’s up to the people, they choose on what to wear because we want this to be an equal culture. But we don’t allow clothes that offend anybody, we want to respect people from different countries and religion. But we have 2 traditional clothing choices, for the people who lives in the city, the traditional clothing would be…
For the people who lives in the forest it would be a leaf suit because we want to represent ourselves that we appreciate nature and our culture together. We also do this because it represents our history, when our ancestors had to wear these clothes because they didn’t have any other, they also lived in the forest just like us, everything that we follow got passed on by our ancestor.
In our culture, we have many different traditional food. The main thing about our culture is being equal. We all like to be equal so we came up with these kinds of food. Steak salad sandwich, pork noodle, chicken pasta, happy banana ice cream and many more kind of meats, we also have a season called hunting season, that’s when we hunt for our own food but we have a rule that not kill to many animals. This is why we have many kinds of meat for a traditional food. We have lamb, pork, rabbit and more. The reason why there are these kinds of food is because we all had a vote, many people chose many different things, so we came up with an idea to combine these things into one kind of food, we did this because we thought about the aspect of being equal, to combine the all kinds of food to create one kind of food.
As we live in the forest, we tend to use wood as our main source of material so the kind of instruments that we play are all made out of wood, there are like guitars, flute, cello, clarinet and many more. People all around our country at least knows how to play one instrument, sometimes the families tend to arrange a music gathering, everyone shows what song they can play, their skill. We like to listen to blues or jazz because we had been passed down by generations by our ancestors. They had adopted these skills by traveling to places like where jazz originated from, New Orleans, and where blues originated from, African-American. Many of us have created our own Blues/Jazz songs that we practice and it represents us who we are.
Many of our arts are also made out of wood, we use wood to carve out things, make sculptures, paint and many things. We love the look of wood, the texture it can create, the many design people can make out of it. We challenge people to think outside the box to be creative, to see what they can do with only wood to make art. We don’t just want people to make simple things, they also could make things that represent them, just things that are creative.
In our government, our number one rule is equality. We do not allow any kind of pollution because we want our city and forest to be as clean as possible and to keep the people happy. Our society will be a kind, Eco friendly. We would like peace, not have war, we all would like to be safe and to protect our country. Because we had seen many countries which have many pollution in the city, causing diseases, sickness etc. Everyone is kind and happy. Our government sometimes pays for the things that people can’t afford. We care for all the people, we pay for serious things.. We would like to have an equal society. But we will ban people not being equal, everyone should be treated fairly and be equal. We also would ban big pollution, we all would like to be healthy and to protect our country. We do not tolerate littering, this will destroy the forest and the city, everything should be clean to prevent any disease.
We will be making money by logging and selling wood but we will replant the trees that we have cut down. We will be also selling animal products and agriculture like gloves made out of deerskin, leather products, wool and meat like beef, pork, chicken, venison, rabbit, lamb, vegetables and fruits. We shall make a few quarries to mine because our land is rich with sky blue topaz that we sell with stone, iron, copper, etc. Our city will have many attractions like the skyscraper spiral tree house with bungee jumping and we will have skydiving, climbing park, tree climbing, water park and many more. We shall build an international airport for travelling and earning money. And last we will be selling green energy.
Our currency is called Zenith and Ozols because we thought it was a unique name that was not yet invented in real life. 100 Ozols equal 1 Zenith and ozols are coins made of copper and nickel surrounded by wood to make a coin that looks like wood. Zenith will be just a bill made of cotton and a imprint of our president.
Our Government will pay for hospital bills only if it is serious like a broken arm or something not if you have the cold or a scratch. The government will also pay for children’s study from kindergarten to grade 5 but after that the parents must pay for their education.
There is no cultural symbol but we do have a lot of holidays like Boom Day, Christmas, Halloween, Green Day, Light up the forest and Hunting season. The most important celebrations are Green Day and light up the forest. In Green Day people are not allowed to use electricity for a whole day and has to plant at least one tree. During Light up the forest we surround the forest with l.e.ds and turn it on at night so the forest would shine bright like a diamond.
The most valued activity is climbing, golf and jazz because we live in a forest and climbing is a great sport for that area and golf because we also have a meadow so its great for golf. Jazz is nice in a forest and it is kind of New Orleans jazz.
People can swim, do sports, golf, climbing, playing on the computer or just relaxing at home.
We will have a big school made of many tree houses connected by bridges and the school will have sections like Preschool, elementary, middle school and high school. Then there will be another build that would be the university and has the same concept for example if you are studying science you go there if you are studying this you go there.
We don’t really follow a religion because we want people to be free and pick what religion they want so its more fair than forcing them into following what religion we want them to.
