Lempol. Applying geopol to the Lemmyverse.
Ex each instance gets drawn out as a real country. The axis: Hexbear and that modi instance gets drawn out as north Koreaesque island countries, where they have strong borders and no immigration. Lemmygrad would be next to hexbear, and lemmyml would be touching lemmygrad too. Lemmyml being governed by lemmygrad. all the non authoritarian instances on the west side of the map, but drawn as essentially Singapore city states since ain't anybody on those small instances. Lemmyverse drama is the politics. Not sure how to represent trade or economics however. Army is the trolls they send to other instances

Drug cartels form their own little zone and call it a republic. US. accuses Mexico of terrorizing said area. Declares that all Mexicans are fascists/nationalists and invades them. America declares that Latin Spanish is not a real language and that Mexians are not a real ethnicity, being simply European colonists. Trump is mysterious poisoned but survives. President Biden calls for return of “historically American” Ciudad Juarez and Baja California and claims Mexico is a product of the Confederacy. > > Feb 2022: > > Calls for "partial mobilisation of national Guard"...

New recruits have to bring their own footwear and are spotted in worn out tennis shoes instead of combat boots. US communications don’t work, so troops steal walkie-talkies from the local Mexican Walmart equivalent to be able to coordinate, but Mexican militia and army can hear everything they’re transmitting. > > Oct; > > Joe Biden throws Lloyd Austin off the roof of the white house. > > Nov; > > > The US acquires loitering munitions from the Philippines.
