Federation Culture

Introductions
-Within the Federation, citizens tend to sometimes first state their home world, and depending of the situation they then introduce their names(in the military is quite the opposite), so here is a example.
Hi there!
Hello, I’m from [insert home world]
I’m from [insert home world] too!
*They then introduce each other names*

Farewells
-In the Federation, when saying their farewells they don’t hug nor shake hands but instead clutch their right hand close to their chest follow by bowing their heads to individual(s).

Languages
-Though English is the universal language of the Federation, almost all each race has its own unique language with a total of 7 languages spoken in the Federation. Some secondary languages are spoken more depending on which colony you are in. The most spoken secondary language is the Rapos, mainly from Raptors. However every school offer classes for this unique languages, the hardest one to learn and speak is the Sect(Sectoid language)since it’s a combination of clicking sounds and screeching.

Diets
-The Federation has a huge variety of diets, due to its diverse population. Meat is the most common(and only) diet for the carnivores Xermes. Omnivores such as the Kutus, Sectoids and Rasorians can basically eat anything eatable. Dorbels are naturally plant eaters, so anything non-plant will make them sick. Surprisingly only the Raptors and Xi’ ians only require liquid compounds to sustain themselves, since they are incapable to eat any solid foods.

Insults
-Insulting a Federation citizen varies with each race, especially with specific insults. For example most of Kutus and Xermes are traditional races, so any insult to their traditions/beliefs can make them mad. Sectoids are greatly offended when been called weak or a stupid bug. Xi’ ians are the most difficult to offend since nothing offends them, except they are only sensitive to one thing, the uplift. Dorbels are the most emotional and sensitive of the races, so insulting a Dorbel can make them feel really upset, to the point of crying. Insulting Rasorian however is the most stupidest thing one can do, since they are known to have short tempers and their outrage is almost deadly, there is Federation saying that goes by this, “Insulting a Rasorian is worst than facing death”. Raptors are a prideful race, so insulting their intelligence or calling machines can put them on a bad mood, also due Raptors past sins in history, calling them racist or murders is a great offense.

Holidays
-They are many holidays celebrated in the Federation, all of them inclusive to all races. Most well known holidays are as follow; Federation Day is a patriotic day of the formation of the Rapture Federation. Trial of Life, a three day pilgrimage in the Kutu/Xermes home world to trace the origins of those races. The Hallows is a spooky holiday remembering the dead and telling scary tales, kids get treats from this holiday. The Whirlwind is a crazy holiday in which all Xi’ ians(and participating races) migrate to the Xi’ ian home world to survive flying around a giant hurricane for one day, it supposed to celebrate the sheer will and determination of oneself. Harmony Day is a holiday of love and peace. Puki Didi Day celebrates the birthday of a legendary Dorbel that freed its people from its oppressive race masters, this is done through parties and drinks, lots of drinks. Fallen Day is a holiday that honors those who died in military service. But probably one of the most joyous and longest holiday is Unity Week, 7 days of celebration in remembrance of the Battle of the Seven Races, which includes festive, parties, and most importantly gifts.

Sports
-The Federation is a sports-minded country, with millions of fans who follow futbol, asteroid racing, wrestling and swatter, among other sports. Futbol, which was developed since the founding of the Federation and became an organized sport 100 years later, is known as Federation favorite pastime, although its popularity has been eclipsed by asteroid racing for the last 5 decades.

Religion
-Though 70 percent of the Federation population aren’t affiliated in a religion, there is still some that practice religions...depending on the race. Both Kutu and Xerme believe in spirits. Rasorian believe in two gods, Sectoids are polytheistic, while Dorbels believe in one god. Only Raptors and Xi’ ians don’t believe in any god(s) nor an afterlife.

So what will happen if I insult a Rasorian?

The Hallows and Harmony Day sound like interesting holidays, and they sound a lot like Day of the Dead and Valentine’s Day respectively.
