     I wasn't referring to square miles. I was simply trying to say that 
because Ansteorra is composed of only *two* mundane U.S. states it could 
be a rather natural circumstance that some things have become polarized 
into a "north/south" dichotomy that corresponds to OK & TX (yeah, my 
brain knows Brad Leah is in the north, but my heart doesn't believe it). 
I would hazard a guess that this modern "state-pride" doesn't make as 
much of an influence in those kingdoms composed of more than three US 
states (though I think it can be an attributing factor in helping spur 
principalities-*if* other factors are also at work). And since there is 
no other kingdom composed of only two states, it's difficult to look at 
someone else for comparisons/differences.

     I went to the SCA webpage to check and see the modern areas of the 
other kingdoms. I have intentionally left out any non-US areas (since 
Ansteorra doesn't have any). And I find it *vastly* interesting that 
Ansteorra's most successful series of wars is with the only kingdom that 
is composed of fewer US states than we are (is their mind-set similar to 
ours?). Here's the list in order of least-to-most states:

     Trimaris    - FL
     Ansteorra   - OK, TX
     Aethelmearc - WV, PA, NY
     An Tir      - OR, WA, ID
     Atenveldt   - AZ, UT, CA
     Caid        - CA, NV, HI
     West        - CA, NV, AK
     Artemisia   - ID, UT, CO, WY, MT
     Atlantia    - MD, VA, NC, SC, GA
     Calontir    - KS, MO, IA, NE, AR
     Outlands    - NM, CO, WY, NE, TX
     East        - PA, NJ, DE, NY, NH, VT, CT, RI, MA
     Meridies    - GA, AL, MS, LA, AR, TN, FL, KY, VA
     Middle      - OH, KY, IN, MI, IL, IA, WI, MN, ND, SD

     These states (AR, CA, CO, FL, GA, ID, IA, KY, NE, NV, NY, PA, TX,   
     UT, VA, WY) are in two or more kingdoms.
