Greg, "Americas" is a bit open, isn't it? Couldn't we divide that up a bit more?

Your wish is my command. You will just have to revote.

Hmmmmmm - this is going to exercise the inner-cartographer. Is Russia a part of Asia or Europe? is Canada a part of North America or the British Empire? Which part of Africa? What about Antarctica? Has WA succeeded in seceding from the rest of Ozland? What about the Pacific Region?
Oh Greg, you have opened a can of worms here - and I don't refer to Martin Luther - even if driving a Benz might be a form of religion...

Greg, that's much better! I don't want to be counted as American! For Gods Sake I'm English and just happen to live in Brazil a la Ronnie Biggs! Without the criminal record though :) Although, I do tell people I deal arms in my spare time just to keep the tradition going!
Well loved and cherished...
