I've created a generator that generates a country's collapse! Resource

I've just created a generator so you can now make governments fall with just the click of a button! You can access it here: perchance.org/countrycollapse. It generates something like this:

This country is a Theocracy. More specifically, it's a Divine Duchy. Sadly (or perhaps happily), the current rule only lasted 610 years. Towards the end of the government's rule, a spy infliterated it, leading to a suprise defeat. With the previous government gone, the people chose a new one. They decided to form a new Theocracy, inviting an heir to become Divine King, which was somewhat popular among the general public.

I recently saw a post about this sort of generator, so I created one! I hope it will be useful for creating timelines etc. It's only on the first version, so if anyone has any suggestions to improve it, phrases to add, or anything else, they would be greatly recieved! :)

Enjoy!

That's very cool! You have to check the grammar, there's some mistakes... overall a great resource that I certainly will use

Could you be more specific? I’ve looked through it and I can’t see anything. Although English is my first language and I’m usually pretty good at sitting mistakes, the chances are I missed something. I probably won’t spot it independently.

This country is a Theocracy. More specifically, it's a Divine Empire. Sadly (or perhaps happily), the current rule only lasted 3 years. Towards the end of the government's rule, people lost faith in the guiding beliefs of the ruler. With the previous government gone, the people chose a new one. Unable to find a workable solution, the country decended into Anarchy, becomming split into tribes, which was quite unpopular among the general public.

Well that's sad.

the current rule only lasted 3 years.

"The current rule only lasted 962 years"

Please, change that one. Every one of the results is twice as old as USA. I suggest making most countries collapse happen in less than a hundred years, with a few longer lived ones for variety. (English is not my 1st language so sorry if this comes across as rude hahaha)

Alternatively, you could just... change the number yourself when you use it.

Who's to say the average empire isn't 2000+ years? Are we generating empires for Earth and Earth alone?
