I'm going to fall on the line that they are foils of each other.

Demacia = The collective community above all things, or else.

Noxus = The Individual above all things.

Instead of looking at this as if it were a line like Demacia_____________________Noxus, it might be more benefitial to think of it like a incomplete circle.

Is more accurately, in my opinion. So though they're opposites, they are far closer than either would like to admit.

Yes, that garlic head is certainly very fashionable.

Realistically speaking though, I'd expect Noxus to be not so economically stable when the worse comes.

Hmmm.....
This is a very interesting debate, both sides have obvious goods and evils like any country would in the real world. The side you are on will always be good to you and all that oppose you will be evil.

There is one thing I haven't seen spoken about, the Void is the evil to me. Now is this fact relevant or irrelevant I do not know?

Agrees with Vargrant.

Piltover and Demacia = collective community

Zaun and Noxus = individual freedom

Though Demacia (for morality) and Noxus (for power) are more militaristic, while Piltover (for compassion) and Zaun (for greed) are more into science.

A part of me wants to believe that Demacia truly is a nation firmly aligned for good. I see the nobility in the champions that fight for Her and their motivation are pure and good. They fight out of love for their people and a deep desire to protect them. Garen and Xin have a loyalty that is more valuable to a king than all the necromancy Noxus can conjure. While Jarven IV appears arrogant, it is that pride which gives the people strength and hope. It doesn't come across in the league judgements or in the champion bios but from the other lore its seems that the Demacian way is one of encouragement and love. The strict discipline is out of a spirit of love, that they would always be on the right path. A true Demacian will lift up all those around them as they advance.

I love how Piltover seems to have been left out of this discussion entirely.

Just putting this out there: Demacia is clearly your traditionalist reactionary state (the military, oligarchy, monarchy all scream of this). Noxus is clearly a military oriented social chauvinist state. Please don't make the mistake of claiming Noxus is socialist, this would violate much of what we believe. Noxus is clearly not progressive, and while they oppose many of the far right archetypes of Demacia they too are imperialist scum (bullying of smaller nations, possible annexation of Zaun, wars with Ionia).

In the end they're both terrible. I had many issues accepting the lore when I was new to the game. How could this be someone's fantasy world? How is this "good"? It is not. Runeterra is changing I suppose, it has yet to reach happily ever after. Both these states keep the world from progressing.

Demacia is not some sort of Secret Police run terror town. It's at worst implied to be overtly strict.

Noxus slaughters countless people and uses zombies in their army, as well as nuking Yi's hometown and killing Galio's creator and Poppy's father (I think).
