Secession by San Andreas
In a perfect alternate universe, a benign and somewhat improbable fracturing of a major faultline will cleanly split California from the rest of CONUS and allow it to float off a few hundred miles into the Pacific, thereafter to secede from the union and become the unrestricted model of progressive civilisation in contrast to the east, which is currently suffering Death By Trump. California isn't perfect but it stands as a grown-up rebuke to much of the rest of the USA right now.
And if that idiot fantasy is too much to ask, can I lower my sights and request that yes, please, El Reg drop the juvenile "Super Cali" nonsense? Like most of its adolescent punning, it stopped being funny after about 15 minutes, years ago.
