"Bundesland" is translated to "state".

Our country elections are between the two major parties of "Boss Hoss" and "Truck Stop".

(And the reporting about the election results also shows great the difference between BBC and Telegraph. At the BBC, they know that he is more like Goebbels)

Herbert L. Connolly lost to Robert B. Kennedy by one vote, and it was his own. Connolly arrived at his precinct a few minutes after the polls closed and wasn't able to vote.
Well, that is one big fail...

Misadventures in procedural plot generation, part 2:

The crown negotiated a favourable arms deal with the king, at a local store.

At least, "the crown" in this case is in the meaning of "the government", not the object, but the King happens to be its only member, so the whole thing is still weird enough.

Fortunately, this one is just due to insufficiently narrow parameters and not due to a logic failure, but I guess there's going to be a lot of that as this little experiment continues.

You mean the crown as defined by Terry Pratchett in his novel "Nation"?







Mr. Black straightened up. 'As you wish. We are known as the Gentlemen of Last Resort. We serve the Crown. Does that help you?'
'But I thought the king was-' The captain stopped, not wanting to say the dreadful word.
'He is dead, Captain Samson. But the Crown itself is not.'


...


'Ah, you've got it right at last, Mother, ' said the king. 'I'm me, not us. I am I, not we. One pair of buttocks on the throne, one head in the crown.'
