Thpeaking! Anyway, I know what you folks are talking about when you say that you don't create *ideal* concultures that follow your own ethics or ideals of political economy. I know Shrislyaria has plenty of features I wouldn't want to live under (monarchy, for example, or a language with six declensions), even though it has plenty I would. As for the assorted provinces, cantons, etc: Here in Canada we have got ten provinces and three territories (territories have somewhat fewer powers vis-à-vis Ottawa than provinces do). The country is divided into ridings (electoral districts) both federally and provincially, with different riding boundaries in each case (I live in the federal riding of Verdun/Saint-Henri/Saint-Paul/Pointe-Saint-Charles and the provincial riding of Saint-Henri/Sainte-Anne). Each riding elects a deputy; a member of Parliament in the case of the federal riding and a member of the legislature (MLA - in Quebec, MNA, member of the National Assembly) in the case of the provincial government.
