I did know, and still managed to mistake CH for Chile when I didn't think very hard about it.

That's what I posted when eepeqez thought I was in Chile.
The Helvetic Confederation. The name Switzerland ("Schweiz" in German, "Schwyz" in Swiss-German) actually comes from one of the three founding Cantons (they were independent counties before and united against the Romans) that started the Confederation in 1291. They were "Uri", "Unterwalden", and "Schwyz".

Don't know if that's all said in the wiki entry. If it is, I'm sorry.

Now back to the game.

How about a go-cart track...paved or dirt, doesn't matter



Bonus points if it actually has carts running on it...

Good job! (although the ol' Stars 'n' Stripes does look a bit strange... )

Damn, I could grab the go-kart track... if I wasn't sick again. Bloody weather just kills me.

It's just a bit of an early rendering. We have expanded from the original 13 states since then.

He never said it had to be a current flag...., besides, it's the only one I could find. I was about to have the kids paint the side of the house
