Run away and move Münster to Munster.

I'm sorry, but I think you mean Mư̷̢͎̹͓͉̾̀͗̓̃̿̕̚nster, not Munster.
IC name is "The United Socialist States of America".
This nation does not represent my actual political beliefs.
NS stats are mostly canon, but serve more as a guideline than anything else.
Collectivism, capitalism, authority, and individuality all do not function in a vacuum, or at least not on a large enough scale to be worth basing an ideology around, and they must all be tempered by the opposing force. (Not a centrist, by the way, but they do raise good points, and they're probably the most sane and level headed ideology - and yes, mine is no exception.)
Shrek dies in Endgame.
My factbooks are quite messy, I'll update them sometime in the distant future.

Reveal realm plots shows there's about 30 people on the plot. Besides it got nerfed recently. The ai became leftists and instead of unifying to take down the monarch they all split up and have their own assassination plots. Which tends to mean you cannot die from assassination.

Real rulers don’t bother with plots, they just beat people up until they get what they want. With swords.

I'm disappointed how lackluster the amount of time in the game. I really wish it went all the way to the fall of Rome. As it is a perfect end point for the mega campaigns.
