This project initially reminded me of a ballot initiative proposing to split California into 6 different states. Some divisions were regional, but some seemed to be economically driven as well (e.g. Silicon Valley was its own state). It isn’t explicitly stated how borders were determined. Perhaps it’s more obvious to someone familiar with the UK’s regional differences, but I can’t imagine the borders being clear cut and static. Surely, cultural values will diffuse across borders. Each region’s values are demonstrated through its transportation systems (self driving cars, humans and animals genetically modified for maximum efficiency, etc.), which leads me to wonder who it is that dictates and controls these values.
