What does Bhm. Sea stand for in the modern map version?
In the modern map, there's a territory named Bhm. Sea. What does that stand for? I always assumed Bohemian Sea though that doesn't exist (and the sea isn't close to Bohemia). Perhaps it is Bornholm Sea (after the Danish island in the Baltic in that area)?

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%

Do you have any idea what it's like being British? Being so correct all the time, being so stifled by this dread of, of doing the wrong thing, of saying to someone, 'Are you married?' and hearing, ' My wife left me this morning,' or saying, uh, ' Do you have children?' and being told they all burned to death on Wednesday. You see, we're all terrified of embarrassment. That's why we're so... dead. Most of my friends are dead, you know; we've these piles of corpses to dinner. But you're alive, America, God bless you, and I want to be, I'm so fed up with all this. I'm moving to Portland.

“+Great economy and growth rates (after 8 years of hell under President O)”
Not wholly and meh.

“+Conservative Supreme Court Justice”
Replacing an equally conservative Supreme Court Justice, so basically status quo.

“+Extreme vetting”
We’ve already had that and I don’t remember ever hearing about Trump changing that.

“+Restrictions on refugees/immigrants from terror prone regions of the world”
Which also included denying already existing visas and holding people who’d already been authorized to come here, which was illegal.

“+Cutting regulations”
Bit of a tossup depending on the regulation.

“+No Paris Climate Accord”
Except that an increasing number of American cities are going to hold themselves to it.

“+No TPP”
I cri every time
TrPrado (372 D)
Sun 12 Nov UTC
Any person who claims to favor a small government shouldn’t be a fan of Trump. He’s been consistently trying to expand the power of the executive wider than inherited, just as has been been done by Bush and Obama. This continued consolidation of executive power is a big no-no!
TrPrado (372 D)
Sun 12 Nov UTC
Also strict bureaucratic measures with bizarre hoops and require several years to acquire residence whereas they realistically don’t have that kind of time are the reason people choose to come here illegally but hey ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

ITT many people who went to America for a week once with preconceived notions of how things are here and chose to hide themselves from evidence that would contradict those preconceived notions tell you America sucks.

The fact that someone said Las Vegas -- the place we literally talk about as being so different from the rest of the country says "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" -- is emblematic of the country says enough about that.

Anyone, including other Americans, who doesn't begin describing this place by acknowledging the fact that there are two completely different societies in America (urban and rural) is out of their breadth and has no business discussing our culture.

Power and leadership only reside in where people believe it resides.

On behalf of the rest of the world We dont think its USA any more.

Very much like Australia , the US is starting to have a very inflated view of itself.

The Mongolian Empire rose and fell as with Alexander , the Romans the same, then the British, so now we watch the begiing of the downfall of the relevance of the US of A. It will leave its mark on history both positive and negative . I think mostly positive but it depends on whom will write that history.

@ Pres E.

Re the different " societies " within the US. You cant seperate the differences . The whole of the USA includes the good and the bad. The rural and Urban , the white , indigenous and immigrant , To try to say that Vegas is not part of the US is plain dumb. Im not saying it represents ALL of the US but it was a creation of the process that is the US. If you say its nothing to be proud of then that kinda backs up my point . The USA has to include all + and - . and overall I belive its in the decline.

I said when is America scheduled to be great again. By America I am including the following things we need:
¤ The rich thrown into gulags and their money redistributed to the disenfranchised workers.
¤ The military disbanded wholly
¤ Healthcare for all
¤ Jeeps
¤ The Satanic bible recognized as our official holy text
¤ America to become a fully Islamic state practicing Shania Twain law
