With respect to an appetite for rampant Imperialism your N Scale Hobbyist is big time guilty. There's no amount of well reasoned propaganda that will convince him otherwise. Fortunately for the rest of world alterations to the structure of the room in which his N Scale dwells in an attempt to widen curves for the Karoo Class are out of the question at this time of the year, far too cold and there's the large problem of a massive Wasp Nest in the roof which could well result in entirely unfair Cossack type defensive actions on their part.
Besides the whole thing could quickly devolve into a horrible unrest from
outraged domestic pets and their primary caregiver. Classically when Napoleon
was first sent into exile on the small Island of Elba he badly aggravated the
12,000 residents throughout the course of his 300 day visit by messing with
their incredibly unfair social structure by endeavoring to drag them out of the
Medieval Period and making them build roads so that he could parade his
bodyguard around. Tourism officials insist he did a lot for the Island, my own
current instincts suggest the Islanders were delighted to be rid of him.
