Dismay is better than the absolute horrorshow planet wide war that I was imagining.

IIRC, this is the only time it was seen in full

Recording here so I can find it:

Anitam's capital now has a name, it's Lina.
Amentan years are 1475 days.

Are there not already vast swathes of empty continent, the only problems being bad seasons? Or is even the equator mostly settled with only a bit of empty continent left?

There's not a lot of equatorial land, and the poles and moon are difficult for other reasons. Some equatorial land is left alone for approximately environmentalist reasons and is not valuable enough (due to lack of seasons) to overcome that.

Did Amentans invent moon colonies before seasteading? Living on a ship in the ocean is unpopular on Earth because it’s difficult and connected to ideas a lot of people don’t like about sovereignty, but surely those aren’t necessarily connected and every Amentan government would want to start an ocean colony at least as a pilot program. Does it just turn out to be harder than moon colonies somehow?

Seasteads on Amenta are thing, as is Dutch-style land fill. The moon arcologies are mostly pilot technologies for futures in which they can set up arcologies as home bases and terraform the planet around them.

List of Amentan countries so far (map maybe happening eventually):

Tapa (Peka's home)
Voa (Avalor's home)
Anitam (Feanorians)
Cene (largish careful country that watches which way the wind is blowing)
Calado (trash fire; sold Miolee rainforest)
Oahk (lesser trash fire, diminished from former imperial glory)
Evalee (inadvertent founders of Miolee in in color)
Biyan (child-torturers who drowned in garbage; southern hemisphere)
Litholee (attempted to keep Matirin in awootwy)
Cayolee (offered Maurabel smol rainforest)
Tarolee (no characteristics)
Orvara (first to be rid of reds via purple rotation; has theologians)
Arva (this is on my list but I can't find it by search and remember nothing about it)
Rivik (hates reds EXTRA much)
Yvalta (no national distinguishers yet)
Baravi (...exports beef?)
Doet (experiments on reds country)
Svaro (Isama wanted to open a factory here)
Qoloc (underground reds country)
Oyand (logistics fuckup led Miolee to keep some of its money from escrow)
Kiasu Avivei (kappa invention; island chain)
Ereith (kappa invention; Amentan Barrayar)
(Miolee) (red country that exists only in in color and late enough branches therefrom; built on rainforest bought from Calado)

ETA: lintamande's Amentan AUSJ blog named lots more countries. Rivik is not mentioned by name because it is smol. I have assigned names from here to [experiments] and [underground].
