Saudi Arabia (House of Saud). The whole notion of births of nations is misleading. The application of a biological metaphor to political processes gave rise to the false idea that nations are 'born' and hence must have one chart, an assumption which has bedeviled the argument over which is the 'correct' chart for the USA. What we have instead are horoscopes for significant political moments."
Nick Campion, Book of World Horoscopes, chart 288, p 325. Campion writes, "Altogether I give three possible charts with detailed historical reasoning. The Rodden data system is difficult to apply to national horoscopes because of the judgement concerning which criteria should be taken as constituting a national chart. That is why I provide historical reasoning for every chart. Nowhere in the book do I say 'this is THE chart...'
