    Depending on where you are, secularism could mean pluralism, no state religion, laicite, or outright state atheism
    Pluralism is a country like India, there is no state religion, but there are laws regarding religion, such as Hindu joint marriage laws, or Sharia family law; the state picks no state religion, but in practice supports religions. You also have more minor versions like historical Canada, where there were supports for both Protestantism and Catholicism, to the point of government funded Protestant and Catholic schools (Ontario still has 100% government funded Catholic schools).

    No state religion, like the US, where the state has no established religion, but religion is free to participate in it, including politically.

    Laicite is France and Quebec, where religion is tolerated, they aren't shutting down organized religion, but don't try to bring religion into politics.

    State atheism is something like the USSR where the state not only has no religion, but is actively persecuting religion.

    Exactly. Secularism is NOT: have a cathedral of each and every religion. I was just suggesting alternate possibilities for goals.

    Sounds like pluralism to me.

    It's true though that the goal approaches the absurd in requiring religions that are small and very local, like Zoroastrianism and Taoism. How about requiring a cathedral for all religions that are above 2% of the world (or whatever an appropriate percentage would be).

    I think it would be good to increase the latitude maximums for the Spaceport wonder, it seems quite strange that neither the US, nor Russia can build it in the correct cities (Maximum is 30, Baikonur is at 46 degrees, and the Florida city for the US is above 30 degrees in game).

    If anything, that image supports shrinking their core to their territory in 1840 and completely changing their Birth Area to reflect their territory from 1816

    Google Translate missed the other, more vulgar meaning of "pinto" in Brasilian Portuguese, which is similar to the "male chicken" meaning in english.

    Anyway, in that picture, pinto was crossed out and replaced with "core area": "because, my friend, your core is small". So it's probably meant as an extremely friendly tease against Argentina and its core. Probably.

    "Brasilian" Portuguese

    LMAO, Brazilians are so transparent. The attempt at uncovering the meaning of such a silly meme was also positively amusing.

    #1. The country of Georgia is not dessert. It is very fertile (around the caucus mountains east of Turkey and on the black sea).

    #2. Hydro plants should be +2 or +3 to food on dessert tiles. Otherwise there is no reason to build them, and this makes sense.

    Huh? Hydro Plants provide clean power, easily increasing your health by 10 all by themselves with enough power dependent infrastructure in the same city.

    Georgia? I don't know what's that but that sure sounds tasty.
