In this district, both Buckingham Palace’s distance from the nearest buildings, and the presence of water in St James’s Park, indicate that female monarchs rule much longer and become much wealthier than male monarchs, who are adversely affected by the facades of surrounding buildings (think of Queen Victoria). The River Thames behind the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben predisposes governments to weakness and budget deficits, but only in their first terms. Governments who survive this initial difficult period then gain energy from the landmass on the other side of the Thames. The location of Westminster Abbey, one of the oldest structures in London, predisposes a slight “irritation” between it and the Houses of Parliament (i.e. church and state). None of these effects is major, however. If one were to reconsider Britain as a republic set up for long periods of stable governments and wealth, a configuration could be based on the strength of a slightly rotated Buckingham Palace, which would make a wonderful living quarter for a president, no matter what gender.
