    The original idea was to do this after the constitution is ratified, but it seems to me everyone wants to rush, so I say we do it now. Just propose names and after three days or so we'll have a poll of all the proposals (max 20), narrowing it down to a few. After that we'll take the finalists and do a second poll, narrowing it down to the one final name.

    Our civilization is the Japanese. Previous names have all be variations on "Fanatica." So take that into consideration.

    Proposed Names:
    1.Japanatica (Japanachica)
    2.Fanatese (Fanacheas)
    3.Nihon (Nihon)
    4.Apathetica (Apathechica)
    5.Fanatchika (Fanachika)
    6.Fanatikaurai (Fanachikaurai)
    7.Fanatika (Fanachika)
    8.Fanatica (Fanachica)
    9.Nipponika (Nipponika)
    10.Fanatyama (Fanachyama)
    11.Bonzaika (Bonzaika)
    12.Japan (Japan)
    13.Zarnia (Zarnia)
    14.Abstainia (Abstain)

    We simply can't have one of those polls without the omnipresent Fanatika and Fanatica, can't we?

    I'd like to hear any ideas Serevok or CT have, because I recall they actually speak Japanese. :p

    I was going to say that, but then I saw your post.

    We can always call it Zarnia...

    I would go with Japanatica.
