Okay fine, but there's no reason not to have ALL the suggestions.  The
number of combined Leader suggestions is either 6 or 7, and for sure
freeciv can handle that.

Umm, have you so quickly forgotten SOUTH CAROLINA???????

     If the Nazi nation suggestion is going to be shot down (and it looks
like it will be), then I am protesting the inclusion of the CSA.
     People hate Nazi Germany because they denied basic human rights.  The
South denied basic human rights.  The Nazis killed minorities; the South
killed minorities.
     To me, it seems obvious that if one nation is included/excluded,
the other one should be treated the same way.

Okay, but is the architecture of a ranch European?  Are there castles in
West Texas?
