Aztlan (Mexico)

Many of the social structures and paradigms for the contemporary
Aztlan nation (including the regional languages, architecture, art,
folklore, and religious ceremonies) are derived from or heavily influenced
by the Mesoamerind cultures that predate it, allowing a unique
blend of Aztec, Mayan, Olmec, and Toltec traditions to coexist within
a modern civilization. One of the more prominent aspects of Aztlan’s
cultural heritage that has made a remarkable resurgence over the last
several decades is the stepped pyramid, which is currently used by the
state-run religion, Path of the Sun, for the worship of the old Aztec
gods (Huitzilopochtli, Quetzalcóatl, Tezcatlipoca, Tlaloc, Xiutecuti,
among many other deities) in the form of the teocallis (temples).
Massive teocalli have been erected and have become permanent fixtures
in the skylines of most of Aztlan’s cities, while minor teocalli have
become landmarks in local neighborhoods, making them easily accessible
to the typical Aztlaner. Thee priesthood for the Path of the Sun,
including its Awakened members known as the Nahualli, have become
a powerful and elite class in Aztlan society. The Aztlan president serves
as the emperor of the Aztlan religion with the title of Huey Tiatoani,
or “Revered Speaker.”

Aztlan contains a very rigid society, and Aztlan military and
Aztechnology Corporate Security forces harshly enforce social
norms. Many non-native religions are banned in Aztlan, including
Catholicism, and the government tightly controls information. The
country is skilled at getting its citizens to believe what it wants them
to believe. Many of the resurgent customs and traditions were reintroduced
to inspire patriotism and a national pride in the citizens
of Aztlan. Aztlan has also proven to be highly skilled at controlling
what information escapes the nation’s borders. Getting information
out that is contrary to Aztlan’s party line—and surviving the process—is
not easy
