This project, created by Pat Roughan and Peter Lepper, is a research-based Interactive Qualifying Project at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The goal of this document is to demonstrate the use of focused research into existing religions as the basis for creating an imaginary culture with its own belief systems. This original research examined the histories, beliefs, and practices of Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism, Agnosticism, Ignosticism, Discordianism, Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Using this research, a fictional world was generated through the creation of countries and their religious beliefs. This document shows the effects of research on inspiration and realism in fictional works.
