Maybe we were on to something...

When I was younger, my friends and I conjured up an entire earth-like planet, full of countries we controlled which were oftentimes at war with one another. I, for example, was the dictator of the Tigre Empire (as in T. Gray... get it?). It was involved in a long-running border war with the Colon Empire, whose emperor was my friend Colin. I still have the folder full of yellowed, quarter-century-old papers with all the names, capitals, flags, and maps of the planet's countries around here somewhere.

The planet's location? Alpha Centauri.
