USG: A Version History

Here’s a fun game: imagine the United States government is software. What would its version history look like? Inspired by Moldbug, Fabrizio and I were kicking the idea around and here’s what we came up with:

1776: America 0.5
1781: America 0.6
1787: America 0.7
1789: America 1.0
1865: America 2.0
1917: America 2.5
1933: America 3.0
1991: America 3.3
2001: America 3.5

Needs some tweaking but I think that’s a pretty good start.


  • Is Trump the first president of USG 5.0?

    Interesting. I think you missed one, maybe a whole new version, somewhere 1942-1946. USG spent most of 1941 technically neutral while war raged along the great powers. Totally inconceivable by 1946.
