    Demographics of a Russian Alaska?

    If Alaska remains Russian well into the 20th century, how would its demographics be affected by the Gold Rush and oil boom? Would the American or Canadian influx of miners and prospectors overrun any Russian/Ukrainian/Central Asian etc. settlement? What about the indigenous population?
  2. AHC: Larger Russian Population in Alaska

    Okay so your challenge is simple: increase the Russian population of Alaska while still having it become an American territory and eventually an American state You are allowed to have it become a territory or state under different circumstances Bonus points if the Russian American population...

    The fate of Alaska in a Confederate victory

    What do y'all recon would be the fate of Alaska in a Confederate victory scenario? I'm considering making some revisions to my own Confederate timeline.
  6. What if Russia kept Alaska?

    I was thinking, what if the Alaska purchase never happened and there was still a cold war? What would have happened with Canada having a land border with the Soviet Union during the cold war? Or with British Columbia with several small isolated towns on the boarder?
  7. What if the Liechtenstein family decided to buy Alaska?

    What would've happened if the Liechtenstein family bought Alaska in 1867?
  8. What would a Liechtensteiner Alaska look like?

    If the deal between the Liechtenstein royal family and Russia actually went through, in what ways would Alaska change relative to OTL? What would a Liechtensteiner owned Alaska's impact be on the broader world? I'm curious to see what you all think.

    Fate of Alaska with an American Canada?

    So ever since I saw this video: I’ve been wondering what the fate would be of Alaska in a scenario where America owned Canada. Assuming the POD is the War of 1812, does Alaska stay Russian or end up American? If it ends up American how? Through America taking it in the Russian civil war? Or...

    Alternate buyers of Alaska?

    Hey, all. So as we all know, Alaska was sold to the US by the Russian Empire. It was not viewed as an especially valuable territory, but it was of some strategic importance, and so the Tsar Alexander II sold it to the US in order to make some money after the Crimean War while also denying its...

    Greater Cascadia

    "Greater Cascadia," with way more territory than any real Cascadia would realistically be able to acquire. Especially SF.
  14. AHC: Greater Inuit Nation State

    Your challenge should you accept is to create, or discuss a scenario where a Inuit nation state covering Greenland and most of the Canadian Inuit lands. Bonus if you can add Northern Alaska. For my part i think the most likely path is a Danish/Norwegian/Swedish dominated Arctic. Still, i am not...

    Who buys Alaska if not the USA? (Is it guaranteed to be Britain?)

    Simple question. Assuming for whatever reason, the US doesn't buy Alaska from the Russians, who does? I've heard of some weird proposals, like selling it to Liechtenstein, but what is the most likely scenario? Is it just Britain? Are there even other plausible options? I expect this thread to...

    Why did Alaska Stay American?

    The question is Ultimately why did Canada become independent of Britain, and territories like Alaska not become independent of the US? Canadian Confederation occurred in 1867, the same year as the Alaska purchase and Nebraska's admittance to the Union. In this way it seems that time since...
  20. The status of Alaska without major military installations in the territory

    What if the us government never had the need to place military installations in Alaska, for example if ww2 and the cold war never happened, what would be the status of Alaska? Would it have become a state anyway?
