    Shall we strike (remove) sections I and J from the Code of Laws?

    Code:
    I.   Nation Name and Flag 
       1.   Proposed changes to the nation name and national flag can be implemented only 
       during periods of anarchy. 
    J.   National Park Rules 
       1.   Parkland may not be terraformed. Exception: jungle tiles in the radius of a city 
       may be cut down to prevent disease. 
       2.   Roads may be constructed. Railroads may be constructed only directly 
       between cities. 
       3.   Cities that have park land in their radius may not construct new pollution 
       causing improvements (factory, coal plant, nuclear plant, manufacturing plant, 
       research laboratory, airport, Iron Works). 
       4.   Pollution on park land will be cleared in preference to all other worker tasks. 
       5.   A majority of citizen approval is required to override standing park rules. 
       6.   Any citizen may propose a new park or change in territory for an existing park. 
       Approval requires the support of the governor(s) whose province is involved 
       and a majority of citizen approval.

    The National Parks section is interesting, and I'm all for parks and conservation in real life. However, these ideals seem to possibly inhibit the best interests as the computer does not care about these things. As for the flag, my country the United States has modified its flag slightly several times since its creation back in the 1700's without a major shift in government. If people want to quible over the flag instead of more important aspects of our budding nation, let them.

    Strike them, they are unnecessary legislation.

    I would say keep them, they add Realistic Challenge.

    Considering we are playing on Monarch level, small things like this that increase the challenge slightly without going to the absurdity of emperor level are a good thing, I think.
