    Abstain by itself would be a good name. It sounds like a province (Think Bahrain the country eh?)

    There are those who have voted to abstain for serious reasons, and there may be those who have voted because the name of the province is immaterial to them. All have exercised their right to vote and are to be commended as much as those who voted for particular province names. They are not apathetic. If they were they would not have voted at all like 92 people who haven't at this time.

    the idea of having "abstain" in the province name tickles me.
    one more vote for abstain.

    There is always the option to abstain. If you check the recent general election polls, abstain was one of the options in each election.

    I voted abstain as I didn't like the options available (sorry Zarn). I am not an Abstainica fan. :)
    Perhaps Zarn you could post a one liner to say what inspired the province names...

    Abstain did win a governor seat once IIRC. (DG2?). Either that, or deputy.

    BTW, the governor can name the province whatever he wants. He doesn't really need a poll.

    Abstain, because the others are, sorry, lousy. They're just some words that doesn't "ring a bell" in my mind. Plus I really like Abstanistan.

    I can just imagine the governor of Nintendo conversing with the Governors of Toyota and Mitsubishi to try and maximize commerce options :lol: The Governors of Sony and Squaresoft get left out.

    Abstain isn't in first. It will not win, since it is the 'I want to vote, but I can't decide or don't like any of the other options' option.

    So far, it looks like Zarnia will. There isn't much time left.
