    In truth I have no dog in the fight and was merely poking fun at the proposed names.

    But it does speak to the larger problem of abandoning organically developed entities in favour of artificially constructed ones - people don't buy it.

    Would you support merging the 50 sates into 13? I think this would be a good idea s it reduces the number of state governments from 50 to 13. I believe part of America's problems stem form the fact it has 50 different states and 50 diffrent governments to go with them aswell.

    For anyone curious the flag was changed to this:
    No and I will bear arms to stop you.

    You may be right that interstate conflicts could be somewhat decreased in this scenario, but my guess is that intrastate conflict would increase dramatically, and that places like West Virginia in the new Eastern Commonwealth would have their interests almost completely ignored.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    In the game it was created to fight communism. Here is the U.S. in 2077. The U.S. isn't so drastically different it requires 50 different states anyways.

    Lol but the game is centered around the failure of reducing the 50 states to 13 commonwealths.

    "In reality, it created even more political strife in the American government, as commonwealths typically did everything they could to promote their own interests at the expense of other commonwealths."
