States with squiggly borders are more stable than states with straight, man-drawn borders, according to a recent paper.
Less squiggly countries, the scholars found, generally have lower income, worse public services and higher infant mortality rates. They also found that social unrest, the sort that leads to wars, was also more frequent in unsquiggly places.
Drat. One more thing to worry about: the looming Saskatchewan Civil War. Probably between Saskatoon and Regina, but you never know…can we really trust the Moose Javians, Yorktonians, Swift Currentites or Lloydminsterians?
I think we should bring in a U.N. force now, before it’s too late!
