Analogize (verb) means “dig and fill with water a new, manmade waterway that does not connect to any significant natural body of water or watercourse on either end, or in the middle for that matter.” (see anal)

One or, more likely, one’s government might analogize to create a beautiful, or at least somewhat attractive, water feature in an otherwise dry area or to create a waterway that can be used to move goods and people between two land-locked points.

If you’re planning to analogize, think about the problem of stagnant water. It’s a breeding ground for mosquitoes and all kinds of scum. If you really must analogize, include a recirculating flow somehow to keep the water moving.

Also, it’s usually a bad idea to analogize extensively right smack dab in the middle of a particularly large desert. The reason for this is that looking like a complete idiot is generally something that people try to avoid. It’s a desert. It’s dry. It will require a lot of water to fill an extensive system of long waterways. Don’t you think that maybe, just maybe, you could find a better use for your water, like, oh, I don’t know, maybe drinking it or washing in it? Idiot.
