    MAJOR SPOILER HERE from my TL A Future To Believe In: 2020-2100: 2022 Senate elections.
    Guess who the new Senators from each state are - you might be right! I could also use some suggestions.

    Kander in MO?
    Buttigieg in IN?
    I'll guess Scott Holcomb or Jason Carter in GA (can't be Tomlinson since she's already elected in your TL)
    I have no idea in FL, but I recommend Kathy Castor, Val Demings, or Darren Soto. Someone young and probably not from SoFlo, as our Dem pols seem to have trouble winning statewide elections. Maybe new state Sen. Annette Taddeo?
    Idk enough about NC to make a good guess.
    In Pennsylvania, maybe someone like Matt Cartwright or John Fetterman?
    In Wisconsin, I'll guess either Mark Pocan, Ron Kind, or Kathleen Vinehout.
    Are there any seat holds but new senators, like if an incumbent retired?

    NC - Roy Cooper

    This is Impressive. It seems to me to be a take on the British 2015 election. I can see many parallels and I must say I am most impressed with the level of thought and detail that you have put into this.

    It's actually based off 2015. (exhibit a: overall Conservative majority, near-sweep of former Coland by my SNP analogue)
    Also, my UKIP analogue, Dragons First, wins only one seat, a coastal seat not that different from Clacton.

    What threw me off was the lower SNP equivalent seats and the higher number of Labor seats.

    The 6 cantons in the Northwest were more or less all of what former Coland covered (that wasn't in another country). These 6 cantons only have 33 seats between them. I couldn't have gave them the seat count of the SNP even if I wanted to.
    So I settled on giving them all but 3. One left over for the Lib Dems, Tories, and Labour each. Labour has the constituency of Port Cole Docks, which is more deprived than the rest of the city and covers an area that has been blue-collar for many centuries. The Conservatives got Foypool, a fishing/touristy/export-centric constituency which is probably quite marginal in character, but a place they have an entrenched moderate incumbent with a big personal vote and pitch-perfect constituent services. And the Liberal Democrats got Thorpe, thanks in part to a strong constituency MP, the relatively less nationalist bent of the seat, and remnants of a culturally liberal vote in the fringe areas in the mountainous regions away from the big cities.

    Sorry, I actually completely forgot about Plaid Cymru.
    Should I edit it in?

    Nah, just say the Wales analogue actually became independent. :p

    I actually have a decently good Wales analogue - the Eastern part of the country, those 5 mainland cantons in the Far eastern part of the country, plus the three northernmost island cantons.
    @Turquoise Blue I added a 'Plaid Carolina' party.
    Missing anything else?

    Eh, I would say make the entirety of the islands be in the Wales analogue. Would give it a twist.

    New Quay is a 'Singapore in the Caribbean' though. It is more like Hong Kong than Holyhead.
    The big red belt in the South is more Wales-like, since it has a history of industry and hilly terrain just like former Carolina (with more agriculture thrown in the mix, though).

    Eh, that risks confusing Wales with Northern England.

    And so what? We need a Cardiff analogue, after all. :p

    Raleigh is that city there next to the northernmost island, part of a canton with 12 districts on the southeast coast. And to its south is Chutney.
    The Conservative constituency on the far northern island is like that because it's essentially Raleigh suburbia.
    Can you say 'commuter belt' ten times fast? :p

    I'd like to know more about Dragon's First and the seat they won. Are they literal or metaphorically dragons?

    This is a universe where labels like dragons, wyverns, etc, are used essentially as stand-ins playing roles analogous to ethnicities in OTL.
    Dragons and wyverns are essentially rock-solid allies, and they have historically had difficulties with dragverns. In-universe peace has been achieved within the country between these groups; but dragverns elsewhere are extremely polarized about how they see the Dragon Kingdom. Dragons First would presumably have a very hawkish posture against the enemies of the country, kind of like, say, the Liberal Democratic party of Russia, with some anti-immigration stances thrown in.
    Their only seat is similar to profile to Foypool, except it's more rural and more deprived, with less manufacturing and more agriculture. Probably was an open seat too - hard to see them toppling an entrenched one or two decade incumbent MP.
