1. Nation Name: United Kingdoms of Scotland and Holland (Viringt Kinriks o' Scotland an Holland) OTL Area: Scotland, Duchy of Holland. Rough population: 2.5 million. Summary: In the 1300s, Willem, Duke of Holland, with a claim to the Scottish throne, invaded, and conquered it. Under the rule of a Dutch dynasty, Scotland was "Batavianised", and, with continental military support, managed to remain independent from England. However, a Scottish House managed to rise up and gain the throne in the early 1600s. In the late 1700s, a United Kingdom was formed. The language of the nation, Scots, is 50% Old Dutch based, 30% Gaelic, 15% English based, and 5% other. The nation is stable, and modernized with an industrialising mainland and Lowlands. The Lowlands are semi-lawless, with local dukes controlling groups that frequently raid the English, and other Scots. The Highlands are under the rule of Highland clans, which are less lawless than the lowlanders. The noble class is mainly of mixed Scottish and Holland descent. The Tussenvoegsel "van" has overtime changed to "Fann", so you have minor nobles such as the Fannperths. Currently, Pieter III is the King. Map: Orange, on Map. 2. Nation Name: Empire of Dixie OTL Area: US Midwest, Hudson Bay Rough population: 4.3 million Summary: Originally an English colony (though Dutch, Scottish, or Irish is fine if necessary), the Empire of Dixie split off from that nation. It is primarly a settler colony and has imperial ambitions on much of North America, and perhaps the world. Map: Orange in North America.
