Nominated!!! you should add washington dc, it's also a first level subdivision of the US, (and has my utter condolence for not having a proper say in the senate or being allowed to make it's own laws. Pretty sad to treat your national capital like a minor)
+3
Level 60
Oct 20, 2020
It was to keep any state from controlling the capital. At the time, almost nobody lived there, so it wasn't a big issue. Now, though, they need to let D.C. people vote.
+2
Level 57
Apr 15, 2021
I think it’d be easier to cede it back to Maryland (maybe keeping the Capitol & other gov’t buildings separate).
+1
Level 46
Mar 29, 2023
By the constitution the government buildings have to be in the district so if they ceded it to Maryland it would be only a few buildings. the problem with that is the 23rd amendment gives the residents of DC 3 electoral college votes. this would mean the president and his family could essentially cast 3 votes for themselves for free. So to have dc as a state or to cede it to another would require the senate to vote on an amendment to revoke the 23rd, then they would have to go through the other long processes for DC to become a state.
+1
Level 50
Nov 15, 2023
We need to get rid of the electoral college or adopt the districting policy of a different democratic country. Our electoral college system is so outdated and creates a real imbalance in the power of our citizens' votes. It takes away representation for a lot of people on both the left and right.

End the electoral college, switch to a popular vote, make our votes equal.

I'm curious how I got Saint Mary for Jamaica but not for Antigua and Barbuda. I assume there is some type-in that I hit for the Jamaica one that doesn't also trigger the one for Antigua, but it's confusing when looking at the answers list because I assumed I had already typed it in so didn't try it again.
+3
Level 55
Sep 12, 2020
Saint Mary, Jamaica has a slightly different type-in than Saint Mary, A&B because of Jamaican Creole, so you probably typed "San Mary" instead of "Saint Mary".

Wouldn't Aruba and Curaçao be considered part of South America like Bonaire? All the ABC islands are on the South American shelf. But then again, for Jetpunk purposes, all the Caribbean islands are North America. In that case, not sure why Bonaire is missing here.

Level 74
Sep 19, 2023
Bonaire, Saba, and Sint Eustatius are actually special municipalities in the Netherlands - technically "public bodies" (openbare lichamen, as they say in Dutch). They aren't part of any province, and they're not their own countries. Because the first-level subdivisions of the Netherlands would be constituent countries (Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten) and provinces (things like Zuid-Holland, Groningen, etc.), BES don't count as first-level subdivisions. Confusing but true.

91/383 on my first attempt. While filling in US+Canada, I kept getting random ones in the Caribbean when I typed in "North" or "South" or "West". Weird. Anyway, once I filled in US+Canada, I named the few Mexican states I've heard of, all the European Caribbean territories, and then just named all the capital cities with the hopes that they count as a subdivision (guess what: most of them do!)
