I am currently toying with the idea of using the faction system to make it actually matter which nation in the UC the players are from.  For simplicity's sake, I'll probably make the gear levels universal, with the main difference being what bonuses each player can get, and what support they can get for trading reputation in.

For instance, the UAO is big on macho-ness and feats of strength, so they get physical bonuses that help them out-arm-wrestle people, and can spend reputation to really push the limits of what the human body can do, such as the Five-Fingered Death Punch.

The NAS, meanwhile, is all about bringing it's ginormous military complex to bare.  Supply drops, airstrikes, you name it, and the REMFs will get it to you in five minutes or less, or the complementary pizza is free.

The others I'm still hammering out, though.  I'm thinking Australia should be the "pure badass" continent, with their reputation spending being on "summon bigger badass", with the size of the badass you summon increasing the more rep you spend.  Like I said, though, I'm still working on it.

Y'know, I just had a thought.  Why didn't they have Michael Bay do the GI Joe movie?  Now I'm sure that people are going to be all "because of this this this and that", but considering just how much he's pro military, you'd think that that would help.

Not being from the US of A I'm surprised I got nearly all of those (the Paul Revere one is actually quite clever Smiley

Reagan and Obama are of course during my lifetime, and Washington and Lincoln are iconic, but who's the dude in the Dreadnought? Is it Roosevelt?

A'yup, Franklin D. Roosevelt in a wheelchair mech.  You heard me right, wheelchair mech.

The artist (link) also has a Bill Clinton pic, but I'm kind of tired of the "he has his zipper down" jokes.

Is Washington holding a french assault rifle?

Halo rifle, actually.  Since it's made by Bungie, an American company, it counts.

also i figured Captain America would be more patriotic.

That is the joke, yes.  Thank you for explaining it to the class.

Today is the day we of the great North American country known as America celebrate our rejection of British tea and tax practices.  We shall celebrate this day by burned food slathered in specially processed sauce, downed with gallons of caffeinated sugar water, followed by going "ooooh" and "aaaaah" when someone finds the explosives.

But for now:

Includes how the leaders will change depending on affinity, as well as a possible peak at two more factions (hint, it's in the covert ops city list).

Quick Amendment: It's the United Austrian Order, not German.  For some reason it makes more sense in my headspace if we go in that direction.

Added qualities:

Catch Phrase- And I want it to be shouted like you are hard of hearing.
Red Lasers- The red makes the lasers go faster, after all.
Bulletproof- You think you got time to bleed, soldier?  Get back in there!
Big Budget- BIG GUNS, BIG ARMOR, BIG CARS, um, BIG GUNS...
Blockbuster- ...BIG EXPLOSIONS!

And now I got to go and try to balance the XP books...
