    It'll be hilarious if all your african civs end up saying "Africa" somewhere in their lyrics...

    The 2nd one kind of baffles me. I mean, it's the coat of arms of South Africa, but usually to represent White South Africans, people have a Boer civ (which the Pangolin does), and for the native black South Africans, they have Civs like the Zulu. I suspect that might actually be the Xhosa or some other Southern African nation, especially if he plans to have Mandela as the leader.

    Not going to mess around with you, though it is tempting lol. Those figures never really represented exclusively white people, in fact they're of San origin. According to the wiki:

    "The figures are depicted in an attitude of greeting, symbolising unity. This also represents the beginning of the individual’s transformation into the greater sense of :belonging to the nation and by extension, collective humanity."

    Methinks "Ubuntu" is a good name for a UA, even though I have no idea what the actual UA will be.

    Ubuntu also has the advantage of being a very easily recognizable word, thanks to certain operative system...

    The peace theme for South Africa needs to be Shosholoza though.

    We essentially already have themes for South Africa. Anyway, The Zapotecs rocketing ahead in the polls is really rather interesting.
