So, seeing as how the map in Blak's factbook is getting a little bit old (not to mention not full-sized), I was thinking maybe we should do a series of full-sized world maps of countries in the Frencoverse; and, for the FT Main Canon, how the Earth looks after the Desolation.
Did it? I was under the impression that the Arabian peninsula was not entirely ruled by Mekhrus.
Failing that, it can always fuck off to sub-saharan Africa and join all the other insane savages and mutants that live there.
I always felt that for proper Mechanocracy, the sickle has to go. What's the point of rampant cyberization if the sickle remains the representative apex of agriculture? It's precisely why I went with a variation on the DDR's logo, which for me seems more in the vein of industry, technology, science and what not.

I suppose a name would be the best place to start. Any ideas? Do we intentionally want to reference NATO with it (something like "Solar System Treaty Organization"), or something a bit more original?
This reminds me, Mef (and I suppose Gig as well): what would we call the socialist snuggle-up between Mekhrus, Europe and Asia? My first thought is something like 'Prague Pact' (as an homage to WarPac), but I'm down for pretty much whatever.
We could also just go back to the good old Internationales. A Mechanocratic International. Mekintern.
If that happens, I'm willing to shed Europe's unwanted rebellious children that are the British Isles only to make it even more 1984 in the grim darkness of the far future.
There are good chances that Europe's new government would be seeking to trade with anyone who can provide pure samples of pre-war flora and fauna, as part of their reterraformation efforts.
Of course, there is the occasional bleeding heart that objects to the mass eradication of new and interesting mutant lifeforms to make space for conventional life but they obviously have no idea what they are talking about.
