I planned this (adding a category to the nations) for long time but
never found the time. I also have a nice image of the new nation

"From what I am reading Win98 and NT5.0 will be getting rid of all that
crap anyway. Seems that Microsoft has invented something called TCP/IP and
another really revolutionary concept called DNS that eliminates the
netbios crap too. All that arping from browsers is going to go away.
I also hear rumors that they are on the verge of breakthrough discoveries
called NFS, and LPD too. Given enough time and money, they might
eventually invent Unix."
