I've seen many skins and read much of the lore. I however am still wondering what the factions in LOL would be like in our present day world. So let me hear your thoughts Summoners. What Factions correspond to which countries.

Ionia is obviously some conglomerate of Asain culture.

I honestly feel like Demacia and Noxus are supposed to be maybe based off of something like the United States and Russia? Perhaps maybe cold war period?

If the barbarian passification of the Noxus lore is still cannon then perhaps that could also be compared to Soviet/Afghanistan war.

Piltover just sorta feels like Sweeden or something to me. Don't ask why.

Demacia and Noxus aren't so much of countries but representations of "black and white", Noxus is suppose to be pure evil, if any thing it's based off the Sith Empire.

Same can be said about Piltover and Zaun, they're representations of a steampunk setting yet they don't exactly hold an actually culture of Earth, some people like to call Piltover a Victorian England steampunk but reality is Cait is the only piltover with a British accent and for the most part Vi, Jayce, and Ezreal don't exactly hold a 1920s look in general.

Depending on how you look at Noxus not everyone is necessarily evil. Granted it does produce some pretty sick minded characters. I wouldn't say people like Morgana, Kat, and Riven for example are completely irredeemably evil for example. Point is I don't think the good/evil embodiment sticks.

My thoughts so far is that Demacia is based off the UK. Ionia definitely Asian influenced. Because of Piltover Customs I think Piltover is more related to the US especially since Piltover and Demacia are allies. Noxus I'd say more close to Germany. The Freljord would be some scandanavian.

The only thing good about Noxus is that they have free healthcare...

ionia is asia
the freljord has some nordic influences
Piltover and zaun are hard to say,they are more about steampunk
demacia and noxus are more based on europe,while demacia stands for the typical good faction and noxus is the typical evil faction,but in the end there are also some good/neutral noxians

This might get a few people raging at me for various reasons but dare I compare Bandle city to Israel?

Like if you think about the Bandle mother-ship as the Wailing Wall?
