Commuters will have to carry their passports on the train! haha

IDK what's up w/ that Lincoln place. I'd keep the Megalopolis in its own nation. If we're using politics as the reason for a breakup of the Union, I see the megalopolis states kinda sticking together. I could only imagine hopping a train to DC and entering/exiting 3 different countries to do it.

Nevada, you say? Ah, that explains why I saw a flag the other day that only had 49 stars.

I'm curious to know how things are going to change so that you won't depend on the Federal government. Are you going to start levying your own taxes to pay for services? And, for that matter, when you start minting your own money, what will back it up? (I can't help it; silly questions like this just seem to occur to me!)
