Right, so out they go to search for the plentiful fish of Mars? Honestly, without oil, Norway has fish and wood, I guess?Norway has a long and proud tradition of boldly going where no one had bothered to go before, and space isn’t any different. Plus Norway didn’t get all the oil revenue to itself ITTL, so it’s still the poorest member state.
There's a reason there are as many Norwegians living in the United States today as there are in Norway. The only country in Europe that had a higher rate of emigration was Ireland.Right, so out they go to search for the plentiful fish of Mars? Honestly, without oil, Norway has fish and wood, I guess?
It's definitely more common there, but the Scandinavian sector is still far smaller than the US and Soviet ones.If you wanted to very alien, there could always be nynorsk, bokmal and marsnorsk. Also fun scenario, "the lingua franca of Earth is English, as it has been the case for the 150 years; but surprisingly in Mars, there has been widespread adoption of Norwegian as a common exchange language"
It's great!View attachment 26365
@Lavidor, any mistakes in the Hebrew?
I'm probably (hopefully...) not going to end up having to use most of these shades. The ones on the map are Likud, Zionist Camp, Jewish Home, Shas, UTJ and Joint List, and I don't think any of the others are the sort of parties that tend to top the polls anywhere.
So many parties hovering around six seats, I guess I must’ve split the difference. The fact that it had gone 2am probably didn’t help either.It's great!
The Knesset diagram is a tiny bit off, 1 over for Meretz, 1 under for Shas, 2 Kulanu miscoloured,

Is there a good place to get boundaries for the individual settlements in the countryside, BTW? I’d like to do them, but the base I’m working off of only shows regional council boundaries.
That's great, thanks. I was a bit concerned because the few maps I have seen all seem to depict them as dots, but this looks like there are actual land boundaries I can use (well, excepting areas like the Negev).
It is probably worth putting an asterisk on the alignments - the Social Democrats and Communists didn't really trust one another, and neither did the three non-socialist parties, but they generally tended to prefer the parties on their own side to those on the other (with a kind of exception for the Social Democrats and Agrarians, but even there the coalition had broken down quite spectacularly over the pension issue in 1957, and there wasn't much love lost on either side through the 60s).If you're looking for feedback on the change, Ares, I really like it; the little mans weren't hard to parse, but this makes it more abundant a) what the balance of power is, and b) who is aligned with/sitting with whom.
