well my great northern expansion of my empire seems highly unlikely. after many failed attempts to garner support and loyal cult followers willing to fight and die to bring down my maple syrup loving neighbors to the north, i have come to accept that montana is the best i can do.
i suppose i could always go it alone, but if i went on a solo mission to canada, i would probably get stoned and forget what i was doing.
if only i was charismatic leader, popular, i could claim the great northern lights for myself. consider yourself lucky. canada lives on. you may continue to feel free to freeze your ass off in peace!
