I admit to being a Falsificationist.

I don't like baseing stuff around countries or jurisdictions because
that risks furthering nationalism which is the cause of some of our
more persistent edit wars.

Instead I would prefer that chapters were based around logistics of
transport, population, and comunication (languages). Not of course in
many cases this will give a result that lines up with existing
boarders either national or sub-national but I would dislike makeing
such a link explicit.
