Story:
Somebody in the society addressed Pinkerton about the walls in the hallway's of the society. They are mostly undecorated and empty. It would be way better if the walls were decorated to a point that it would inspire people to be an more active explorer. Pinkerton thought about it and approved the idea. He told the explorers that if they wanted to they can put inspirational posters of their choices on the walls in the hallway (preferably on the cracks in the walls so the inspection wouldn't notice.) Some explorers couldn't care less about the idea, while some others were incredibly enthusiastic about the idea. Among those was Pedrinho.

He had the perfect idea of a poster and had multiple copies with him the very next day. With hammer and nail in hand he walked towards the centre on the hallway. Jan-Piet took notice of this.
''I see you are in an even better mood than normal. Is that because of Pinkerton's request to make the hallway more eye appealing?''
Pedrinho nodded in excitement. ''That is the exact reason. When people will see this poster they will want to be more happy and party forever!'' he said and put a ladder against the wall. It was good to see that some people were taking this serious. After a short while Pedrinho stepped down from the ladder, revealing the poster. Jan-Piet suddenly understood why Pedrinho was so enthusiastic.
''But Pedrinho that is just the Brazilian flag.''
Pedrinho folded his hands in a motion of love. ''Isn't it inspiring?''
''Not....really but I don't think you are allowed to just hang up Brazilian flags everywhere.''
''Well if Charles is allowed to do it then why can't I do it? Our history is just as inspiring and
amazing compared to that of his.''
''Well we are actually in the country he represents.'' Jan-Piet said.

Victor overheard what was said and walked towards them.
''Pedrinho don't be silly. Your country can't possibly compare to the things France has achieved. It simply hasn't been around for long enough to make a difference.''

Charles, with his own set of posters under his arm, walks joins the conversation.
''France has achieved many things you say? Don't make me laugh! Those few measly colonies is nothing compared to the vast British Empire.'' He said with his hand on his heart.
Earl was also walking through the hallway. ''And then you lost it.''
Victor laughed. ''Good one!''
As Earl approached Victor he gave a high five and kept on walking. Charles got really angry over that comment. ''We still have way more than you!'' he shouts.

Bia also heard the arguing and approached the others.
''All of your silly little nations are still in their diapers compared to Greece. We have basically prepared all of modern civilizations with politics and culture.'' she said proudly.
''That was thousands of years ago, what has your country done in the last 300 years?'' Pedrinho asked mockingly.
Charles responds. ''Only making wine and Gyros.''
Suddenly Hatice busts in. ''Which is actually Turkish.''
Bia got enraged and threw her sword at Hatice. Hatice dodged the sword which was now stuck in the recent hung up Brazilian flag. Pedrinho was shocked

''My flag! How dare you!''
''What are you going to do, dance me to death?''
''I will show all of you the power of Britain!''
Victor intervened before a fisticuffs fight broke out.
''There is a better way around it. We should show the world which nation is better.''
