Ice Floe #7, Nunavut - President Obama recently noticed that there was a new quasi-nation just north of Canada. Calling in his advisors, he learned that Nunavut got it's start by Canada's continued desire to be just like the United States.
Canada, as is well known, has no culture, language, technology or customs of their own, but only that which they've borrowed or imitated from the Americans.
Yet Canadians had long noticed that America had one thing that they did not, and that was a large and cold nation of whiners living north of them, who were dependent on America in every way, while claiming to be sovereign.
So as to then have the same thing as America, the Canadians let the Natives pretend to be free and start a place called "Nunavut". This place would be to the north of Canada, be large and cold, and filled with whiners entirely dependent on Canada, while claiming to be sovereign.
Thus making Canada even more like America.
True to form, Nunavut relies upon Canada for it's defense, just as Canada does America.
After learning of all this, President Obama summoned the Prime Minister to the White House so that he - like Presidents before him - could smile, pat the PM on the head, and say, "How cute!"
President Obama briefly considered whether Nunavut needed to be designated the 53rd state, Canada being the 51st and the UK the 52nd. However, he remembered just in time that the Canadians get sulky when they hear their status named out loud, so he simply dismissed the PM.
For strategic purposes, America will continue to regard Nunavut as part of the 51st state of Canada, which saves the 53rd spot for a nation more deserving of it.
