United States of Africa
I reported from the Economist that there is a move to unite the countries of East Africa. A Board Game entrepreneur has a game to help promote the vision of a United States of Africa. Unfortunately, the board game says nothing about how the country should be governed, its constitution, etc. It is part chance and part "Trivial Pursuit," answering questions like "Which country in Africa was never colonized?" and identifying the President of the Ivory Coast. We need to simulate this process so people can learn about how it would actually work, which is the proposal of my Constitution Construction Kit.
