Aang's Permanent Residence?
I think that Aang and Katara settled down in Republic City, and that he eventually died there. There are several reasons that support this:
- 1. Aang is a vegetarian, and he can't stand Sea Prunes, so he'd starve to death if he settled down in the South Pole (where the dining options are pretty much limited to seal, whale, fish, penguin, and sea prunes)
- 2. If the rumor about Aang and Zuko founding the city to encourage cooperation between nations is true, than Aang may have settled there to encourage immigration (who wouldn't want to live in the same city as the savior of the world?)
- 3. They said that people from ALL 4 Nations would be represented in the City, and since Aang is pretty much a Nation of One at this point...
- 4. Avatar Korra goes to Republic City to find an airbending teacher, i.e. Aang's son Tenzin lives there.
Republic City potentially Ba Sing Se?
I pose this because during the war Ba Sing Se was a place of refugee, thus inhabiting people of all nations during the actual series. Since Zuko ended the war, it would imply that the nations may no longer discriminate between the elements ( As the concept is pointed out in "The Guru" ) so it could supported that Ba Sing Se became a melting pot to the Avatar Universe. Any thoughts on this? I would love this prediction to be added onto the page.

Ba Sing Se's gepgraphy rules it out as a possible canidate, Wtaer Tribe charatacters (excluding Hama) have never been shown to live outside the poles for long periods of time, only earth kingdom refugees were moving in, so that rules out the melting pot possibility, the earth kingdom wouldn't just let its capital city be taken away.Avatar Courage 01:23, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
We have a problem here, IMO. This has been bugging me, and now with the Transcript:San Diego Comic-Con 2011 in place, I feel it's a fine time to point this out. This article is Named Wrong, in my opinion. In the Comic-Con, Bryke mentions both United Republic AND Republic City. Go read it.
My opinion of this matter is that "United Republic" is a nationality of sorts. In other words, that's what everyone calls themselves, unassociated with any of the Four Nations. And Republic City is a city that is encompassed/held within this "United Republic", much like the Water Tribe's have the Northern & Southern Water Tribe's, if that makes sense.
In other words, this article should be properly named "Republic City" because this is the city and not the nationality we are referring to, while United Republic would be the nation. I am unsure why we are calling the city United Republic. Vulmen (talk • contribs) 04:26, July 30, 2011 (UTC)
- I agree with Vulmen's "theory". In SDCC they mentioned "United Republic" only once, while "Republic City" many times. Dcasawaang1 (talk) 04:34, July 30, 2011 (UTC)
- I think United Republic is not a nationality, but a territory where Republic City is located. It would just feel...off to say "I'm a United Republic."-- 04:36, July 30, 2011 (UTC)
