Good idea! We had actually renamed Narjan-Mar "Lymbdasavey Mar", but this seems a good solution too.

Hmmm. Do you think Vissarionov would have been happy with such a solution? Okay, he was pretty occupied with establishing his power in Estonia etc., but would he have allowed a region that was part of Russia to split off so easily?

No problem, as soon as you come up with your map, I'll redraw mine. Mind you, most of what I did was very much based on the situation *here* (admittedly, with some differences). If someone comes up with a better alternative, I'll be the first one to adopt it applaudingly. Anyway, the main difference with my map, I believe, is that you add a small portion of the Komi Republic to Nyenecye-Ja, and that Taymir does nót belong to it. What would you do with Taymir Nenetsia? Add it to the United States of Siberia? If you want to change the borders with the Union of Mansiland and Khantiland too, you should consult with Ferko first, I think.

Excellent! You know, Russia is really too big for just one person, and I'm ready to share it with anybody. I'm glad you want to take part of it. (Perhaps we should take this discussion to Conculture, BTW. That's were all the IB stuff takes place, after all) Jan ===== "Originality is the art of concealing your source." - Franklin P.
