    Perhaps Hawaii (both above and below the ocean) linking with Guam, Samoa, the Phillipians, etc to form the Greater West Asian Co-Independence Sphere.

      Eh, let’s not resurrect that horror. Nippon is isolationist in the 22nd century anyway. The divide in the South Pacific is between China and Australia’s sphere’s of influence.

        The Philippines is already listed as part of China's sphere of influence, but the others would work. There's an area called "the fish desert" were the surface waters are cut off from the nutrient and oxygen rich waters below. Sea Thermal Power Generators could both provide energy (using the ocean as a Sterling Engine) and food source ( by bringing the deep waters to the surface). This could sustain large cities floating just under the surface of the oceans (low enough to be safe from even the worst storm but not deep enough for pressure to be to much of an issue). These cities would fight global warming just by their existence.

          No the idea is that smaller states/territories/nations like Hawaii, Samoa, Guam etc take the basic concept of a unified military/political/economic alliance with common goals without getting into the hideous imperialism. That's why the name is different (The Greater West Asian Co-Independence Sphere). And of course with underwater habitation tech, these "smaller nations" might not be so small after all.

            This is already what the Austronesian Union is and includes Samoa and Guam as part of Polynesia and Micronesia.

            • Oceania and Australia are the new USA, Oceania more related to the first years after independence trying to rise and shine, and Australia more related to USA later, with the small cities getting bigger and the cultural life going around the big cities. Even the “movies” and sport transmission comes from Australia.

              I know you like your country and all, but the dream keeps alive. the ideal American way is alive in Australia during Aeon Era, instead of moving within (to Hawaii) move out (to Australia).

              By the way, the idea of Hawaiinwith a submerged city would attract Oceania, as happened to other islands, and they are good at convincing people that Oceania is a better place than FSA. Happened before.
