This kept happening, but each successive leader was older than the last. It kept progressing until I finally had to take this screenshot:
Yeah. You saw that right. This never ended. This was the last screenshot I took before giving up:
Eventually it got all the way up to (I think) 139 by the time I finished the game. What happened, first of all, and is this going to happen every time I play a faction other than ERE?
