Identification Methods
For a story I'm writing, I need an adult who has lost his memory to not be easily identifiable. How do I make this feasible?
For instance, I expect the Dutch government to have the fingerprints of Dutch citizens. Do legal immigrants or people with a refugee status have their fingerprints taken as well? Would illegal immigrants or tourists from countries that don't take fingerprints make for a solid storyline? Are there other options?

Known World 901 - Playable?
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm fairly new around here. I'm looking through the variant maps, and I see one that looks like a lot of fun, the Known World 901 map. On the Variants page, it lists it as active, but when I go to create a new game I don't see it as an option to select.

An open discussion about elaborate ways to restore reliability rating
I was thinking how there are members on this site who ruined their Reliability early and can never restore it to the 90th %tile. What if we did a series of experiments on these people. Hook them up to machines. Or perhaps put them in a room full of rats and see if they survive. The goal being we develop a way that someone could go from a 13% RR to a mighty 78%

You are horrified at our intending to do away with private property. But in your existing society, private property is already done away with for nine-tenths of the population; its existence for the few is solely due to its non-existence in the hands of those nine-tenths. You reproach us, therefore, with intending to do away with a form of property, the necessary condition for whose existence is the non-existence of any property for the immense majority of society.

On a recent TV quiz show ( The Chase UK ) there was a question, What political philosophy did Karl Marx theorise ? The choices were: 1 Nationalism 2 Socialism 3 Fascism.
The cynical side of me thought "a form of fascism in Stalin's interpretation", but clearly with that choice, the answer is 2 Socialism. The contestant picked Nationalism ( and only needed to get it right to be " home safely " & she'd earlier upped from £8,000 to £25,000 or thereabouts & moved a step closer to the chaser ) The Chaser chose Socialism & got it right & eliminated her. The host added a comment.. Karl Marx and Engels published the work in 18xx that founded Communism.
I had to laugh. Chasing all that dosh, one last correct answer needed to get back to the team & lost in an innacurate set of choices about the author of Das Capital. And then the host mentioned the correct answer that was not an actual choice.
