It's certainly not tiny; it's at least as big as Earth, in my estimation.
(I think anything larger than a car is `big'. ;)

You got me.

Well...I'll have to disagree with you slightly there. Remember that
Robotnik has lots of factories/mining operations/et al all over Mobius,
and that all of those are manned at least partially by roboticized
citizens. Robotnik's not a stupid man, after all: killing everyone would
leave nobody to do the drudgery...or witness his triumph.

Assuming 25%+ were killed, and 70-75% roboticized, that would leave the
remainder still au natural...not many, but enough to do some damage to Ivo.

That was my belief as well. Of course, according to the general fanfic
precedent, foxes are the majority of the majority. =)

I know how *that* is. =P (And I don't know, either.)
