    I like how every region has a new name. Except Texas.

    For anyone curious the flag was changed to this:
    Who drew up that stupid map ?

    San Francisco should be surrendered to North Korea or some other commie country.

    Los Angeles is already under Mexican occupation.

    I believe there are already a few commonwealths with in the Union.

    Come on, hawaii part of the South West ? Hawaii is closer to Alaska or even San Francisco than Los Angeles.

    Yeah, at least give those areas more original names.

    13 or 50 we continue to lose our local powers to the central establishment. I do not see this changing that.

    I'm not talking about that part form the game the idea of forming multiple commonwealths is form it and in the game it was meant to resist communism. In real life however it means 37 less bureaucracies in the U.S..

    If the main purpose was meant to resist communism, then that basically eliminates the need for doing it because it is irrational to believe that communism has a serious chance of establishing itself in this country in even the next 50 or 100 years.

    And there would be a lot less local representation. South and Central Florida would dominate that Gulf state. New York and Pennsylvania would dominate the Eastern commonwealth. San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Portland, and Seattle, would override anything that the people of Idaho would ever want. Huge groups of people would suddenly have zero political power because they would be dominated by even larger groups of people.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting
