    Everyone's talking about Japanese cartoons, meanwhile I'm feeling bittersweet about the beginning of the final season of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. :undecide:

    New corporation: The Trump Organization. Costs :gold: and :espionage:, no benefits except the ability to build Trump Towers that decrease :gold: output even more and increase other nations’ :espionage: on you.

    Also has a rare random event that leads to the new modern Wonder: the Big, Beautiful Border Wall

    The clapping emoji on this website is even more condescending than usual

    The BBBW has the effect of free walls in every city, blocking enemy militias from entering your territory, and decrease of commerce. It costs 5.7 gold upkeep per turn.

    Prereq Technologies are: The Wheel. And the Internet.

    Nah, it'd be more like "Free walls in every city. -1 Commerce from farms in all cities" in reference to how the American Agricultural industry relies on illegal immigrants to sustain itself, let alone grow.

    Speaking of walls, dont forget the Great Firewall of China.
    Unlocked when someone finishes the Internet Project. Requires Totalitarianism.
    No bonus yield from foreign trade, but grants +50% spy defense and halves unhappiness duration time from whipping and drafting.

    Clearly, we need to rework America so that it’s actually 50 civs all in vassalage to the District of Columbia. Its the only way to have it be historically accurate

    And we need a second level of vassalage for its colonies. I mean unincorporated territories.

    Ditto with Scottland, Ireland, England, and Wales.

    And the entirety of the European Union

    Slavoj Zizek Great Person
    SNIFF SNIFF sound effect upon clicking
    May cause infinite "and so on and so on" glitch and crash game

    George W. Bush great person
    Wu Shoe Reflexes: Cannot be assassinated

    New Mahatma Gandhi great person attributes:
    Can walk around capturing enemy cities just like that. BAM! Peaceful conquests. Get outta here, Brits.

    New animation of Siddhartha great person:
    invisibility
    he is nowhere
    can't click him sorry but he has 100+ upkeep that enlightenment tree needs a lot of fertilizer

    New unit: Martyr
    Looks like a great prophet, and can do Martyrdom, and it does the great prophet animation of him ascending into oblivion. But nothing comes of it.

    New unit: Hound of War
    I wanna see dogs invading Europe. I wanna see the modern great general doing his "AAAWWW HAAA YEEEAA HAAA" with a whole heap of dogs in front of him ripping tanks apart.

    Dogs > Tanks? Yep, I'd say that's historically accurate.

    Having recently read Worm, I would believe a female general leading three hellhounds with THAT animation is a really great fit. Woohoo Rachel.

    So here goes a rather crazy idea based on a Brazilian meme that emerged around the 2018 presidential elections.

    New civ: URSAL (União de Repúblicas Socialistas da America Latina/Unión de Repúblicas Socialistas de America Latina/Union of Socialist Republics of Latin America)

    Flag:

    Spawns in 2000 AD all over Latin America. Not in a particular spot, but it just flips the whole region in one go.

    Leader: rotative. One turn it might be Lula, another one Hugo Chavez, yet another turn Cristina de Kirchner, and yet another turn Pepe Mujica, Evo Morales, Rafael Correa, Lopez Obrador (not technically part of the pink wave but just to give Mexico some representation), etc.

    Capital: rotative. Each turn, a capital of a different member republic is the federal capital.

    Special power: the Power of the Pink Tide. Neighboring civs suffer unhappiness from not adopting Socialism (State Party, Revolutionism, Central Planning). Great Statesmen can spread Socialism.

    Unique unit: Bearfantry (replaces Marines). These are friendly but persuasive soviet-style, rifle-wielding bears imported from Russia. Enemy units have a fifty percent chance of deserting and joining Ursal, as the soft furriness and friendliness of the Bearfantry makes them want to join the laid-back, tropical Latin-American socialism.


    Unique building: Community Council. Replaces News Press. +25% culture, +25% Great People birthrate, +2 statesmen slots, +2 happiness.

    UHV:
    1. Commodities Super Cycle: acquire 10000 gold from trade with China by 2010 AD.
    2. Peace and Love: achieve an approval rating of 80% in 2020 AD.
    3. Global Pink Tide: spread Socialism to 40% of world population by 2050 AD.

    Edit: forgot to explain the bear jokes. Urso means bear in Spanish as well as in Portuguese. While the word URSAL doesn't actually exist, it to Spanish/Portuguese ears it sounds like it could mean "beary" or "bear-like", as the -al ending, like in English, can be used to make an adjective out of a noun.
