  4. Affiliated States of Boreoamerica thread

    Glad to see this posted! In my head, I had Lower Connecticut's motto as an indirect reference to the failed New Haven Colony, but the other interpretations are certainly valid too, and I like the idea of a motto no one quite knows the meaning of. Also, West Dominica's is taken from a line from...

    Or that they don't percieve themselves as imperialistic, but do see their geopolitical rivals that way- how many OTL Americans see their country's actions in those terms, for example?

Apparently, very few captured dodos were able to survive the sea voyage back to Europe OTL...
  13. These Fair Shores: The Commonwealth of New England

    Sounds like Canada had its own version of the Trail of Tears- whereabouts is the First Nations Reserve? On the subject of First Nations, Sherman's OTL middle name is conspicuously absent- what happened with Tecumseh in this timeline?

    I love the subtle differences in internet terminology- takedown instead of download, and "set your AmeriNet to" implying people at least initially analogized websites to radio stations or tv channels.
