Will the U.S still be around by the end of the century, or will we have gone the way of the dodo?

What if it changes name? What if it merges with another country? What if it loses territory? Etc.

predicts YES

@BenjaminIkuta Good point!

@LeshyIjaraq Well? How would you resolve?

predicts YES

@BenjaminIkuta If it considers itself a continuation of the ideals of the current U.S.A, I'd consider it resolved "yes." A "No" would be a collapse, destruction, or a transition away from a democratic republic.

@LeshyIjaraq Well that's rather broad, isn't it? The Republic of China in Taiwan considered itself a continuation of China, and Byzantium, Rome.

A transition away from democracy can be gradual, a matter of degree. How do you draw the line?

Does the US exist as a stable democracy in 2023?

Define stable..

The market is currently set to resolve at the end of this year. You should change it to 2100 and set a reminder to come back to resolve it.

bought Ṁ10 of YES

@Calvin6b82 Set it to 2050, and we'll see where it is from then. If I'm alive (and the market's still open) by 2060, I'll set it to 2100 and we'll make BIG money if America's still a thing
