Why don't we just take over a small area of rural England. It would be hard to find a good place in the US, the history here well really isn't history...Everything is soo new... I wouldn't mind to buy 200 some acres in central England and invte you all to live there with me! In all seriousness...If this actually can happen, I'll be the first to create/live in a steampunk commune!

I doubt I would. I think everything I liked about the victorian age is things that can´t be recreated. Only the things I don´t like will it be possible to have again.

Isle of Wight, lets 'liberate' Isle of Wight.

It already has it's own currency variation and no speed limits anywhere.
I say we take it for the good of mankind.

Actually.... New Zealand might actually be the place to go...

seriously, think about it; just rolling grasslands and forests make up its majority. Look it up, it would be insane not to consider it. As long as we don't upset the locals or the Maori, it could be brilliant! if you're unaware of its landscape, its actually much like england was.

Since it is steamPUNK, I think the coins should be hammered so that clipping is still possible. This is off the record, though. As King, I really shouldn't be sabotaging the economy.

Why not have it be a chain of islands, kind of like Hawaii? "The Unified Islands of Victoriana". Inter-Island transport could be achieved via both zeppelin and steamer, and the with the Capital city of Babbage located on the biggest island. (The smallest island could house The Edison Correctional Facility and Penitentiary for Thieving and Incorrigable Bastards.

Lets just take the Florida keys, hell all of Florida. The climate is nice, there's plenty of water for ships and subs, the old railway bridges can be rebuilt, there's St Augustine, which has some fantastic architecture. Geographically there are a large flat expanse's for landing zeppelins.

You actually hit your head? I hope you didn't hurt yourself, I'd feel really bad if you did.

May I suggest Greenland?  The climate is rapidly improving, and it has the major advantage that for huge areas there are no native peoples to displace when we build our metropolis.

I'm going to have to Veto Florida. The heat there in the summers causes me to be a bit swift with dealing out death sentences for just about anything.

I'd have to dissagree with Florida as well: seasons are lovely things, and Florida just don't have 'em. It's stuck on "Bake", and when you go to the beaches, the smell of burning plastic is unbearable.
But what about some other island chain? Something further north. I'd agree with Greenland whole heartedly, except it looks to be too covered in snow. Is is like that all year, or just in the winter? And, if it is, we might as well just take over Antarctica: there's less people to worry about, and we could eat penguins.

Absolutely agree. While hot and sunny is bloody awesome in the summer, 365 days of sun would become tiresome.
Where ever we locate to MUST be capable of snow, even if its just a few days a year.

I want snow for part of the winter. How else will my horseless steam-sled be used?

Is a sleeveless, buttoned up shirt with no collar considered a tank-top? Because, if it is, I might regret my suggestion of the Edison Penitentiary...

While we're at it lets ban socks & sandals. Just because.
