One of the authors I follow on Facebook just got a 24 hour suspension for "violating community standards" for making fun of a pretend country.
 
Larry Correia is the author of the Monster Hunter International books, as well as the Grim Noire and Black Sword series. He belongs to a Facebook group with other authors where they generally screw around share writing tips, etc. Apparently yesterday they were screwing around in a thread arguing about made up countries and the FB bots put the smack down.  Read about it here. It's pretty funny.

I know a man named Roland and altered his name to Groland as a reference to his inability to maintain an erection. Anyway, turns out that's a real made up country.  I'm not part of an authors group, on facebook, nor do i really talk with people ever, but this hits close to home like Russian SS-7.
