|Random fact: Did you know you can change the official name of your nation? All you need to do is draw up a new name that is in accordance with the National Renaming Guide, pass a bill proposing the name change with a 2/3rds majority and then post a request to Moderation on the "Nation/Region/City/Newspaper Renaming Requests" thread. You can change city and region names in this way too, so long as the new names "reflect the culture of the nation".|
