Would you consider colonization 'land grabbing?' I don't know how realistic of a possibility that was at the time, but it could potentially be tied to relationships with other European nations.

Yeah. We got colonizing in space events and legis props already.

For all these regions that are not listed, can we include leg props that "provide land grants to veterans/ volunteers/immigrants to settle newly acquired territory x"? 

Other ideas:

- forcibly removing locals from territorial acquisitions in x without compensation

- compensating former owners of property in x

- provide land grants to native American tribes currently in reservations

- endorse territorial constitution for territory x
