Quandary Resolution 2365
valetudinarian, antœci, torpedo, daedal
The young nation spent its daedal energy devising instruments of war – sophisticated torpedos that could traverse the ocean and strike antoecian ships in their distant ports – but for all the nation's early military ingenuity, it could not stop its own people from growing up to be bedridden valetudinarians, worried as much about their own frail health as about perceived enemies across the globe.
