Glitch with Colorado's state flag: At 3:43 you can see the Colorado state flag skort. In the Colorado state flag, the red ring isn't complete, it makes a C with the yellow circle inside. It isn't supposed to encapsulate it. Love your work Grey

Did you there are no term limits on vice presidents, so if you were really cheeky you could keep running as vice-president and then ask the president to resign for you, so you could be President as many times as you want. Of course if you did this, you probably wouldn't be voted in again.
(there is no limit on how many times a vice-president could become a president)

So what happens if, despite everyone’s best efforts, all 18 people die at about the same time? I’m picturing some AI picking a citizen at random and sending them an email or letter saying “Congratulations, you’re now the president.”
(I mean, at that point we’d already be in such deep crap that grabbing some Joe Schmo off the street and plopping them in the Oval Office can’t hurt us much more, right?)

Loving the icons for the Department Secretaries. DOT a train engineer, Labor a factory worker, Energy smugly tapping on the nuke, Homeland sec with reflective sunglasses, earpiece and sidearm.
As to names, the Attorney General's department was not actually named Department of Justice until 1870, before that the precedence was in the Office of Attorney General of the US, one of two cabinet departments that were "Offices", the other being the Post Office (headed by the Postmaster General) which lost cabinet rank in the 60s.

Discussing the problem brought up at 8:15. If the secretary had to resign their previous post to become acting president, that means they are no longer in that post and therefore appointing someone to a post higher than that post would not kick them out of office, I would even think they would be able to fill their previous post with someone else.

And if they can, do they join as what? Is it like a Puerto Rico situation, or they can join as full fledge state number 51?

I think the "bumping" clause refers to people who didn't die when the president did, but rather weren't able to serve as president when first called for some reason, such as being in a coma. If that were the case, new appointees would *not* usurp the presidency.
