He may have....but I sure didn't...from wiki
The King is dead. Long live the King![1] is a traditional proclamation made following the accession of a new monarch in various European and North American countries, particularly in the United Kingdom and Canada. The original phrase was translated from the French Le Roi est mort. Vive le Roi!, which was first declared upon the coronation of Charles VII following the death of his father Charles VI in 1422. In France, the declaration was traditionally made by the Duc d'Uzès, a senior Peer of France, as soon as the coffin containing the remains of the previous king descended into the vault of Saint Denis Basilica. The phrase arose from the law of le mort saisit le vif—that the transfer of sovereignty occurs instantaneously upon the moment of death of the previous monarch.

I don't know. Do you think Phil Collins would want to be a member of a corrupt, psychotic dictatorship?? I mean, seriusly? Don't you remember "Land of Confusion"? BTW, I like Disturbed's version of that song. ;) :cool:
from 17th's Nation:

"The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising fourteen-year-old boys selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out."

that's harsh ... Lol

... Neemai
WHAT! Harsh!? The last time a kid tried to sell lemonade in capital square... (the capital of Seventeenth) He got tear gas and divine treatment from my Triple R. (also known as RRR, also know as... Rapid riot response, which consists of the 17 most elite soldiers in the country.) They are like my schutstaffel... Wanna sell lemonade? ON MY FREAKING STREETS?! You have to deal with the Triple R ;\

Anywhere in my country... 30mins TOPS! TEH TRIPLE R!! can get there to supress any leary slav... Citizen... 24/7 job.... Kid selling lemonade? No problem... They'll stomp him.... Someone whining about "civil rights"? No problem... Tear gas and pistol whipped and he ain't complaining no more.... Crowd demanding freedom of speech? Fire at will all target's green light, shoot to kill.
Welcome to the fray, Jack. Population 36 million? You've been building your nation for a little while, huh? Keeping us in the dark? Maybe?

I don't know. I do know that my nation has undergone a shake up, and it's conscience got to it. With all of the anti-business activity and the crack down on kids selling lemonade, we could no longer faithfully call ourselves the "Free Land," and instead have opted to transition into the Community of A Bazillion Choices. It's still a pretty hip place to live. Environmental restoration is well under way, and I think soon enough those kids will be free to sell their lemonade again without harrasment. As long as they don't try to advertise, all will be well. ;) :D
