I was wondering something and I'm not quite sure where else to ask so I'll just put it here.
When creating a company are there any rules/guidelines regards if the company is supposed to be 'canon' with the rest and fit in the real world? Is it preferable to make cars from a real life nation, or can we use a fictional nation? If so should we keep even fictional nations to the real world or would moving into a fictional world be too much of an extra leap?
Personally, I can work with any of the options. But I'd like my brands to mesh well for challenges and cohesion with other members.
