I agree with Kailric. I really like the names, they sound cool- but Oregon and Utah are more "common", and would probably be less confusing. (Of course if we had civilopedia entries for each of the civs, some of this problem could be avoided... anyone want to volunteer to write pedia entries?) Actualy, I have another idea: Maybe we could make it so that on revolution, your civ name flips? So you start out as Utah Territory, but when you revolt you become Deserets? I know that this is doable in Civ 4 on civic flip because it's been done. Probably there's similar SDK code enabling it on Colonization? Perhaps on winning the "Statehood" victory your name would change similarly? Would require SDK but I think it might be cool to add.
