I wrote a National/Territorial Anthem for FatLand in FatLand II: The Early Days. I wanted to bring FatLanders together as they sang it. I also wanted to give them national/territorial holidays and ceremonies. All of these are detailed at the end of FatLand II.
However, I feel a bit bad that FatLand rests on what was once sacred ground for certain Native American tribes. In FatLand III, I will have one of the Board Members ask the leaders of these tribes what can be done to redress the wrong done, not only when FatLand became a territory on this land, but when Native Americans were thrown off it in the late 1800's.
It is kind of a big deal that FatLand became a territory, and not a state. The main reason given for FatLand's wishing to retain territorial status was that since the Pro-Health Laws mandated strict monitoring and stricter diets for fat people, FatLand did not wish to have to obey such anti-fat laws, which is, in essence, what they were. This is discussed further in FatLand II: The Early Days.
"The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" is one of my favorite westerns. I feature a somewhat similar scene in FatLand II to that of the Statehood Convention in TMWSLV, but I turn it around. Territory supporters win.
Movies and songs flicker through much that many of us boomers write, I suppose.
