Séyetana Country Profile

Séyetana declared independence almost a century ago, after a rampaging horde of warriors, with Empress Alexis Jordan I at their head settled in south East Twikandea. Forming an unapologetic empire, they forcefully carved out borders where they felt necessary. Some... small disputes between Persephonia and Daehun were in order, to gain control of the Dennian Plains, the eastern part of the Indie Steppes.

For some time the region has been peaceful and Séyetana has not gone to war, there is no need, as its citizens flourish under the benevolent rule of Alexis Jordan XIX, the nineteenth of her name, as beautiful as the first and certainly not a sinister clone superhuman as claimed by her enemies. Now, close allies Persephonia and Altyr Muunlinst are supported and support Séyetana in its ambitions.

Séyetana has a temperate oceanic climate. In the north-east of the country temperatures can reach mild extremes, along with a small desert deep in the Indie Steppes. While the entire west coast sees many tourists, Asenati the main tourist attraction, located at the mouth of the second-largest river in Séyetana, the Noodle river (the largest being the royally-named Alexis river that originates in Helgon, spends most of its run traversing Séyetana and eventually flows into Persephonia), the Asenati coastline has stunning landscapes surrounding it and golden beaches as far as the eye can see.

Cities:
Ziadiz - The Capital of the Realm, ruled by whatever group has the most power in the land and home to diplomats from all nations. Currently ruled by a homunculus empress (always named Alexis) from House Jordan, a minor house from the Poplands. Recently House Fenty has been ousted from power, and the Jordans are now controlled by an uneasy alliance between the symphonic metal and dance houses. A large Asian contingent led by the government in Miura is threatening independence.

Lautianna - Capital of the Popland Duchies. Ruled by House Fenty. Other noble houses include House Jordan, House Reifer and House Sandford.

Asenati - Capital of the dual vassal monarchy of the Gorillaz Delta and the Hip Hop Hinterlands. Ruled By House Niccals.

Holpikkilla - Capital of the Symphonic Savannah, which contains a small but important range and indigenous tribe known as the Hardcore Metal Mountains. Ruled By House Holopainen. Other noble houses include House Turunen, House Olzon, House Jansen, House Hietala, House Denadel, House Demurtas, House Ryd and House Mörck.

Elemecian - Capital of the Synthpop Plains. Ruled By House Young. Other noble houses include House Poxleitner, House Düren, House Tofte, House Taylor and House Thiessen.

Avirokki - Capital of the Pop Punk Expanse. Ruled By House Parawilliams. Other noble houses include House Dougall and House Jardine.

Volsalmi - Capital of the Alt Rock Reach. Ruled By House Coldmartin. Other noble houses include House Meighan and House Bellamy.

Zaratigone - Capital of the Electro Forest. Formerly ruled by House Diamandis until a civil war between them and House Zavlavski left both houses a shadow of their former selves, shortly after hosting the Masquerade. House Karlsson has taken advantage of the power vacuum and is looking towards an alliance with the increasingly autonomous city of Miura.

Rhudanion - Capital of the Retro Retreat. Ruled By House Ulvaeus. Other noble houses include House Faltskog, House Lyngstad, House Andersson, House Fleetwood, House Buckingham and House Carpenter.

Bandene - Capital of the Pop Rock Jungle. Ruled By House Lavigne.

Orokovis - Capital of the Folk and Glam Moors. Ruled By House Penniman. Other noble houses include House Shears and House Matronic.

Denrayber - Capital of the Indie Steppes. Ruled By House Butler-Chassagne. Other noble houses include House Lagrange, House Banks and House Delrey. Delrey was recently overthrown by Butler-Chassagne and the steppes have become a lot more credible as a result.

Nborm - Capital of the Classical Lakes. Ruled By House Stirling. Other noble houses include House Hale (vassal of Stirling and captive from the Pop Punk Expanse) and House Patterson.

Miura - Capital of the Asian Borderlands. Formerly ruled by House Chaerin but now ruled by House Eiru. Other noble houses include House Nakamoto, House Hyun, House Jinah and House Uana. A big threat to the Ziadiz administration due to its distance from them. Separatist forces concentrated in Nakamoto are counterbalanced by moderates led by the Eiru forces who advocate a power-sharing system with Ziadiz.


BJSC History and explanation:
Séyetana enters diverse and occasionally ill-informed entries consistently in desperate attempts to outdo all other nations and their cheap, good-for-nothing ways while remaining among the most inspired nations in the contest. True facts. We like standing out, so our entries will often be of the banging variety, and will often feature guitars and heavy chords. This is a strategy that always works. We will never win but we'll come pretty close with one of the most noticeable entries in the lineup.

Also of note, every single Séyetan entry that qualifies will be predicted to finish 10th. When we do actually make the final, scraping lucky top 10s is what we do and everyone knows it. *.*

Well, XXXVI is over, and congratulations to Isconia and Video Games. I've been listening to the songs a lot, and there were so many strong songs in the final, I could have gone for any of them. I must admit, I hadn't seen as much in Video Games as some of the other entries, but it was still in the top half of the final for me, I think.

And Séyetana will be making its debut in XXXVII! cheer.gif

The entry I'm pretty sure on is a fusion of two genres, and does sound similar enough to a more popular song to draw comparisons to that. This is only part of the song, but if I go with it, I can see a bit of criticism on that front. I've listened to both songs several times over though because of that, and I can make a good distinction.

Plus I love this one, so I think I'll go with it.

Different entry to the one above. I changed my mind! tongue.gif. I can always keep the other one back for another contest.

Anyway, Séyetana's debut entry is The Wrecking Queens - Middle And Between, a group from Finland. They have been placed in Semi Final 2, and hope to make an impression on the wider world of Buzzjack. I see a little bit of Paramore in them, but see for yourself.



Good luck everyone else. Séyetan citizens will begin to listen to the other entries and will choose their favourites shortly.

And with a DNQ, I bow out of the competition. It wasn't a shabby failure, though, as Séyetana managed to place in the top half of the non-qualifiers. SO GREAT!

The next contest awaits, where we shall aim to get to the final. Rumour has it that the officials have come down to a final two. I do things in advance.

Good luck to everyone who made the final, and Séyetana will begin their voting deliberations as soon as the final opens.

I'm quite varied, to be honest, but I did really enjoy your entry this month. Shame it didn't qualify. I do love a good ballad, and that was great.

This one was my rock side showing itself. It'll probably be a different genre next month, that's just what they're showing up to be.

Yes it's a shame though because as good as any rock music for me, it just doesn't appeal me and I get put off by it for some weird reason.

Hopefully your next entry will be a pop entry as I love that genre cheer.gif

Well, here we go. XXXVIII has been revealed, and Séyetana's track is a track I've been loving recently: Emmon's Distance.



Electro-dance is probably the best way to describe this. And do turn it up, I keep thinking it's a little quiet on the recording, and it benefits from being louder. kink.gif

Let me know what you think, of course.

Emmon comes in at 22nd in the final. While this is a new peak for Séyetana and naturally we are grateful, considering that Distance underperformed compared to a lot of the odds and predictas, which were predicting it to finish top 10, it isn't perfect.

Many thanks to Caefryddia, Lotopialand, Quotosibb, Batidas, FSR Rontvia, Espen, Fljótavík, Zechonia, Kluminican Republic, and particularly Avalonia and Dalisska for giving Emmon much needed points in the final.

The Commission have a few entries in mind for XXXIX to smash (hopefully of course).

I can slowly, or quickly, climb to a peak (of #1). Does that sound good? biggrin.gif

Entries revealed, and Séyetana has gone for some Canadian pop from Alyssa Reid. I shied away from entering Alone Again for OBVIOUS reasons (I'm pretty sure it would get vetoed for that chorus, and I was feeling The Game far more. I have like 40+ listens so far, and that's a LOT for me wub.gif)

Anyway, it's a very upbeat track. Hope you lot like it:

Séyetana gain new peak

By the skin of their teeth (and with a tiebreak), Séyetana finish in the top half of the final, 14th. The country is exceedingly pleased with this result, none of us expected to do this well. Our thanks must go to Espen, Budtar, Unovia, FSR Rontvia, Daehun, Ashton, Palmyra, Yuxhaaq, ChrIsland, Farahtyn, FYR Vojvodina, Unoshake, Quotosibb for voting for us, and particular thanks go to Ramrynia for giving Séyetana their first 12! Unexpected votes from many places, I'm surprised and pleased.

Rumour has it that Séyetana has already chosen their next entry. BJSC enthusiasts in Séyetana are already calling it a 'secret weapon'. It has its critics, but the majority of the committee are behind it.

No problem! It was a massive grower - I gave it 6 points in the semi final, and of course 12 in the final! I really love the song, so thank you for bringing it to my attention! Also Ramrynia is very happy to have the honour of giving Seyetana their first 12 points! biggrin.gif

Thanks. Actually, could I PM you about my entry? Everyone else seems to be doing it, and I would like to make sure that I haven't chosen something everyone will hate. I do have a few backups, but none of them are inspiring me much.

I'd be happy to listen to any of your possibles if you want. (I've read your thread and I'm intrigued)

Séyetana unveil entry for 40th contest

The announcement of the BJSC XL entries in Hendinia has concluded. Séyetana's entry is This Little Girl by singer Cady Groves. A punchy pop number, the track has already seen success in Séyetana despite not being officially released. To celebrate the 40th contest and the 4th in which Séyetana has entered, the Séyetanan national record company unveiled a limited edition mini-album with all 4 of Séyetana's entries so far, as well as the 12-pointers of the 3 contests voted in (Linda Teodosiu's Alive of Botanikka, Voltaire Twin's Animalia of FYR Vojvodina and Thea Oskarsen's One Of A Kind of Greenfroze). It's a milestone, OK? happy.gif



Tracklisting:
1. Cady Groves - This Little Girl
2. Linda Teodosiu - Alive
3. Alyssa Reid - The Game
4. The Wrecking Queens - Middle And Between
5. The Voltaire Twins - Animalia
6. Thea Oskarsen - One Of A Kind
7. Emmon - Distance

This was limited to 10,000 copies in Séyetanan record stores, yet has already sold out with the week up. This has led This Little Girl (as recipient of the chart position and sales) to crash into the official charts at 26 a week before it's official release, ahead of promotional single from British-Avalonian singer Matt Cardle, Walking On Water, selling 9,789 copies (tongue.gif). This Little Girl has now been released to Séyetanan iTunes, and it is currently at number 2, ahead of current official number #2 Christina Perri - A Thousand Years, and behind Katy Perry's single The One Who Got Away, which also saw its single release this week and is smashing the iTunes charts.

Critics of This Little Girl had worried that it's lyrical content was too violent for a family contest, however Groves responded by saying that 'the lyrics are secondary to the enjoyment of the song, yet the lyrics also hold a positive meaning for the young girls of Séyetana, to allow them to stand up for themselves' 'It's a great song, get over yourselves'.

Cady = Alyssa

Cady Groves finishes in BJSC XL with a virtually identical result to our previous one with Alyssa Reid, right in the middle of the table again. It seemed to appeal to the same people also, picking up a second 12 in a row from Ramrynia (wub.gif) and a second 10 in a row from UnoShake, making the top points 1 12 and 2 10s again, with a 10 from Daehun also. Many thanks to all those who voted for Cady in the final.

Entries for the next contest are being considered, but with less urgency than normal, with a 2-month break. Séyetana shall be taking part in TBO and the Rejects, despite likely not having any entries in the final of either, with Emmon, Alyssa and Cady too unsuccessful in the final to make it, and The Wrecking Queens not having a hope in the Rejects. tongue.gif I'm still looking forward to it though.

The tracks that Séyetana voted for also saw success, with second-favourites Greenfroze winning the night, and the nation's favourite, Batidas coming 6th. Congratulations to all, particularly Greenfroze! All in all, good contest.
