    In the People of America faction, you wrote Seyuoyah instead of Sequoyah, also both the party description and the book are super interesting. I'd really love to read Lost at Home

    Ah okay thank you for noticing! Thank you for the complements. I would like to read it too, but I'm not that good of a writer :p

    I'm guessing turnout is so low since the National Union wins every election

    Wow, the amount of faithless electors this election puts OTL 2016 election to shame

    Yep! Although it's a bit higher than average because of the populist rhetoric being thrown around in that year.
    Yep. Since its basically guaranteed that the Party would win there are a lot of electors who vote for other people to make a protest statement of some sort. Our good friend Henry Gates got 8 electoral votes and the most faithless votes. I really didn't want to list all the 38 people that they voted for.

    I'd really like to see more about Abraham Lincoln in this timeline, really just how he came to be Speaker of the House and how his administration changed post-war.

    I didn't mean to make that sound like a demand. This is a fantastic timeline and I just have all the questions.

    No more of Germany included in France (e.g. western Baden-Württemberg) according to the map? I thought you mentioned that Baden-Württemberg is now French, and Bavaria Czech.
    Is German an official language of Dakota? If so is Dakota ever considered a "free state" along with Liberty, Louisiana, Sequoyah, and California?

    Ah that was the initial conquest. France transferred control to their (then) puppet, the Rhineland Republic. France did take a piece of the Saarland however.
    No Dakota has no official language so they are free to use any language that they prefer. Well as I said before, there is no law that establishes free states as an legal entity. However it is certainly considered a free state by many, mostly because of the large refugee population.

    Tragically the Add to Cart button does not, in fact, work.

    Hey, @Planita13 what is the American Freedom party and the Socialist party? Could you give us infoboxes for them? And I thought that the Greens and some classical Liberal party were the main opposition, what happened to them?

    Yeah I will. I decided to retcon them as part of my American politics overhaul because they had moderate positions that overlapped too much with the National Union.

    So that's why you removed them from the Index. Thanks for telling me!

    Yeah in general, if I removed them from the index its no longer canon. Unfortunately things are pretty messy in this thread. I may need to address this soon.

    I'm surprised Alabama and Mississippi weren't split along the 32nd Parallel, and no West Virginia as well.

    The Civil War kicked off differently and Virginia did not secede. I'm not sure why Alabama and Mississippi would be split differently
