I can't remember if it was discussed during development... I was a noob to the foundry back then. But I would guess those mountains were added for gameplay reasons... I guess some other kind of impassable could be used, but since the map is already quenched, it's up to the mapmaker whether he wants to make that change.

Yes mountains are there for gameplay reasons, and I won't be doing any changes any time soon.

I noticed that Abraham Lincoln is quoted on the map (A house divided against itself cannot stand). As he is not the originator, would it have been more apt to quote the original source, i.e. the Bible? (Luke 11:17) Just a thought.

Though that is a true statement, it wouldn't go with the theme too well IMHO. ;)

Well, it is called "Deseret." When that whole area was one state that was the first name the Mormons had gone with to the US government, when they were applying for statehood.

Love this map, though the least libertarian party of the country being named Libertarians is a little weird.

Alternative and theoretical futures are always a little fantastical. ;)
