This page is all about the Fiction Encyclopedia.

The Fiction Encyclopedia serves as a Wikia exploring the immense world of fiction. However it differs greatly from the Novelas and Literature Wikias in that it discusses the subject-matter using an in-universe perspective. The Fiction Encyclopedia also combines information and images from canonical and (if deemed appropriate) non-canonical work in order to endow each article with a sense of encyclopedic realism. The real mission of the Fiction Encyclopedia is to create articles on fictional people, places and species but to do so in an encyclopedic way and using encyclopedic prose.

For example the land of Lilliput (as described in Johnathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels") will be described in the Fiction Encyclopedia as a country located in the South Indian Ocean, discovered in 1699 and neighbouring the country of Blefuscu. Everything, it's history, culture, even it's longitude and latitude (as provided in some maps that accompany certain editions of "Gulliver's Travels") will be described in the Lilliput article of the Fiction Encyclopedia. By using canonical and non-canonical sources information and/or images not provided in the original text will appear in the Lilliput article; for example the national flag and crest shall be taken from one of the many film versions of Gulliver's Travels.

The likes of Victor Frankenstein will be described as a scientist educated in the University of Ingolstadt. Ingsoc will be described as an ideology most prevalent in Europe and the America's during 1984, referred to by it's non-adherents as "Oligarchical Collectivism".
