Damn it, it's Achaea! =) You're not French are you? The French I've dealt
with seem to like to spell it Archaea. 

I have to agree with you on the world balance issue. I don't see any
practical way to do it between two muds that are reasonably unique,
particularly as most muds are generally evolving. I suppose you could
probably do it between a bunch of bog-standard Dikus, but that's hardly
very exciting. "Hey Bob, look, we can go to the exact same area in 50
different muds! Whoo hoo!"
