In UK-Canada Parliamentary elections, I'm not aware of two major parties becoming one party during a campaign. Do you have an example of this in mind, perhaps from another electoral system?

It's also happened quite a few times in continental European elections and at least twice in post-WW2 Japanese elections (in fact, the long-dominant party in Japanese politics, the Liberal Democratic Party, currently under Abe's leadership, started as such a merger back in the late '50's or early '60's, actually).

Ok, this might happen at some point in the future, but it's not a priority. It hasn't happened in any of the countries the game officially is about.

But, as I've often said. there are a LOT of very interesting and pivotal elections outside the "officially covered" countries, which is why I personally think the "one country per game" ideal is much too stifling and the games should be approached as broad toolkits with many scenario settings, modes, and flags, at least for scenario creation.

It's more a matter of focus. Adding features so post-WWII situations in Japan can be modeled more accurately means not adding features for the U.S., or the U.K., and so on.
