Latest bit of light reading: having a re-read of Allen Steele's science-fiction novel Coyote.

For those who find hypotheses surrounding what a post-decline US might look like, the "United Republic of America" --- under a neo-cons-gone-bad style one-party system, surrounded by the notional breakaway republics of "Pacifica" and "New England" --- depicted in the beginning chapters of this novel seems a plausible enough model.

Where The Handmaid's Tale (anyone else remember that film?) meets Heinlein's Hole in the Sky.
