New Year's Eve 2012: A Nation on the Brink

by George Barany, Michael Hanko, and Paul Luftig

As a special New Year's Eve treat, two versions of this puzzle (both "mid-week level") were released, one 15x15 and the other 17x17 (the latter is shown below). Other than their size and details of the content, the two puzzles differ with the main theme entry; four other theme entries are identical.
