What is this, Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri?

I don’t know. Does that game have a theme of cousin marriage too?

Surprisingly, it doesn’t.
The themes and factions were created more along the lines of ideology. Neo-spartans, Capitalists, Religious fundamentalists(Mormon?), UN (has bureacratic penalty), Communists (huge economic penalty, good at repression) and mad scientists. And Greens.
No cousin marriage, sadly.
One of the best games of its type, though it wasn’t really finished. Featured a lot of good quotes, half classics and half made up in-universe ones and even a story-line of sorts.
They missed a bit, which makes all the difference. Also, shouldn’t the Arabian Sea be renamed?

I’m sure the earthquakes will have done the rest in.
Even if we had yields like that, that really would cause an ice age, unlike Sagan’s fantasies.

Maybe it’s just me, but that little nubbin in the middle sure looks like Atlantis immanentized.

I have a vague memory of the late A.J.P. Taylor appearing on some UK chat show and being asked what his solution to the Middle East Problem was. The reply: drop a nuclear bomb on the area…

It’s kind of happening in slow-motion anyway.

If they keep exporting democracy over there so enthusiastically, soon it will be as thoroughly destroyed as Detroit. Only safe place to be an arab will be Germany, maybe Rotherham.
Since you’re in joking mood I hope you’ve seen this.
It’s the only way to be sure.
Bonus: warm water port for Russia via the Caspian Bay.
In regards to the Arab world – has the practice of polygamy left a mark on the genepool there? Do polygamists have a certain set of personality traits which can spread due to the practice?
Is that the reason the Arabs are so famously hard to get along with? There is Muslims in Indonesia too, and they don’t have quite the same mentality.
Some of the muslim areas there supposedly even practice matriarchy in a way – men bring their wages to their wives and the wife gives them back their spending money..
The idea of highly radioactive sub-oceanic oil fields is too good to pass up, it would do wonders for marine life biodiversity.
