    Uses analogous groups/organizations that one knows to help understand a fictional one:

    Exactly.


    No analogy is perfect, but it's the system I know.

    So, what is the name of the court that makes the final decisions, beyond which there are no appeals, in your country, @Zsolt ? Imagine that court making a decree that says "anyone of [ ethnicity ] is a traitor to the state and is to be killed on sight".

    I know the thread has kind of shifted focus here, but I do want to second this. I can only speak to my area of expertise (Japan), but the fluff often screams "we only did a surface level look at this without considering the implications." You needn't look further than the "is the name kempeitai offensive" thread in the off-topic board, but also consider for example that JSA is supposed to be inspired by the writings of Yukio Mishima (a post-war author who basically inspired a wide range of modern far-right movements in the country) but doesn't really take any cues from it in design beyond "oh yeah samurai exist again."

    The Core is pre-Uprising, but the Faction books are post.

    Sure, but I guess the YJ faction book will still take some time...

    Yes, because the Uprising was kept such a secret they didn't tell Modiphius before it was announced to the public. This meant a big chunk of the setting fluff had to be rewritten.
