Keith Laumer, Bolos and Foreshadowing

Heh. So I picked up a copy of The Compleat Bolo for a buck last night, and was leafing through it in nostalgia...and I came across a story I'd forgotten - Rogue Bolo from 1986. One where a new Bolo (sci-fi's first self-aware tank series) is being activated. The project is so super-sensitive that anyone who even looks like they might disagree with it is stuck in Imperial Detention Camps to prevent them from disrupting it.

Why is this funny?

The Bolo is being built in Imperial America. By the Emperor George I.

Nice.
