A place based on Patriotism, Ideals, and strict military in a "standing invasion force" while having anti one race views (Noxians), now where have we seen this before?
Or the society that is based on Capitalism (yea I said it)"a settlement where the physically and mentally strong acquire power" with Autocratic rule, where people are "always treated every contributing member as fairly as they deserve"(Katarina).
I can't tell tbh.
And where are the Janna pics?
INC real life comparsion - might be a bit opinionated, you've been given a warning:
Neither is perfect, but if I had to select one of the two to live in if suddenly earth was going to blow up and I had to move to runeterra, I would probably pick Noxus as my place of residence.
Demacia is best compared to a totalitarian society... the closest comparisons you have on earth are red china, north korea, and the soviet union. None of those are places anyone will want to live in, regardless of personal greed or charity. No one wants to be forced to behave or think or act in a certain, strictly regulated way, even if they would be nice and benevolent otherwise. Ideologically, I oppose Demacia for that reason.
That said, Noxus isn't a rose garden either. They are the classic capitalist society, much resembling present day America. Laws very heavily favor the wealthy / social elite and offer them more protections than any random individual citizen. Let's be honest, if you live in the United States, or any other country that flaunts "social freedom" (I'm not forgetting about you, Euro guys!) and are an average barber shop owner, there's little you can do if a large business organization or political organization decides to step on you.
These "social freedom" countries often have unions and the like to attempt to protect people that are lower on the food chain, but in my not so humble opinion, they don't really do a good job of it, though they flaunt and exaggerate the good they do and spend sometimes more money advertising that they did something nice than they do actually helping.
At least Noxus is willing to be honest about that rather than pretending to do stuff about it and pandering for public view.
My conclusion: Neither is really all that great a place. They both have significant problems and opposing ideals with no clear right or wrong. Being forced to pick one of the two to live in, I'd probably have to go with Noxus, unless I wound up with nothing but the clothes on my back when the earth explodes - in which case I'd go to Demacia and keep quiet about its faults in the interest of not winding up in prison untill I got up on my feet and could move to Noxus.
