"Small nations are often miserable, not because they are small, but because they are weak; and great empires prosper less because they are great than because they are strong... Hence it occurs that, unless very peculiar circumstances intervene, small nations are always united to large empires in the end, either by force or by their own consent... The federal system was created with the intention of combining the different advantages which results from the magnitude and the littleness of nations." -- Alexis de Tocqueville
