Quite some time passed since I posted this thread:

Since then, I kept revisiting the topic starting from scratch every time. At this point, I finally reached a point where I'm more or less satisfied with what I put together, but I'm curious about the opinion of others.

So here are the population figures I worked out:

Country19102019OTL growth2019 AltALT growth
Habsburg Monarchy51 356 46568 826 6241,34105 322 8942,05

Without the post-WW1 destructive events of OTL, I predict a more dynamic and higher overall growth for this alt Habsburg Monarchy compared to OTL. A x2,05 total growth from 1910 to 2019 might seem a tad bit high at first glance, especially since OTL's growth was abysmal compared to that, but I didn't just pick a number randomly. I based my numbers on the growths of both Italy and Spain. Two Catholic countries which had comparable GDP per capita to Austria-Hungary in the early '10s. Italy's population growth was about x1,71, while Spain's x2,37 within this timeframe IOTL. With the OTL experiences of these countries' and Austria-Hungary's different geographic features taken into account, I concluded x2,05 to be a reasonable number to go with.

Now, how would this number be divided between the two halves of the empire?

Halves19102019OTL growth2019 AltALT growth
Cisleithania28 571 93436 562 0261,2855 425 4691,94
Transleithania20 886 48728 789 5981,3844 962 5102,15
Bosnia1 898 0443 475 0001,834 934 9142,60

Tbh, these are just the sums of the populations of of the regions of the monarchy. I was working from bottom to top, you see. Still, the idea here is rather simple. the less developed Transleithania experienced higher growth compared to Cisleithania, but the high levels of immigration (and the high growth of Galicia) kept Cisleithania ahead of the former in terms of total numbers.

Now, onto the regions, onwhich all these numbers until now were based on:

I worked with rounded numbers for simplicity's sake. Things I considered for these alt growths were borders, accessability/interconnectedness, wealth, development, migration, war(s), the iron curtain, tourism and urbanisation.

The Habsburg Monarchy ofcourse wouldn't retain its political structure from 1910. I envisioned it slowly and gradually shifting towards a federation of "macroregions" in the decades following the war, with a pact officialising the changes only well after the fact. Thus, the Danubian Confederation would be born. "Federation" would be a more accurate term to describe the polity, but "confederation" was chosen to atleast pay some lipservice to those fearing their nation's sovereignty.

The member states of the Danubian Confederation (or Danubia for short), would be the following: Austria, Bohemia, Croatia, Galicia and Hungary.

What I had the most trouble with were the cities. There were just way too many of them. Still, I burned through countless wiki articles and others sources and managed to put together a list containing cities that could potentially reach 100k inhabitants ITTL. In the end, I assigned 133 cities with a population of 100 000 or higher. For simplicity's sake, I used very rounded numbers.

A highspeed railway network is also among the things I want to plan out, but I'm not sure how many lines with how many stations could realistically be. Help in this regard would be much appreciated.

So, what are your thoughts/opinions? Which parts should I reconsider? Did I miss something? Tell me what you think!
 
Have you checked demographics with religions and languages? Yes, these would are really hard to estimate but perhaps there could be some ideas.
 
Excellent work! There's no doubt that the high-speed railway network will include a route from London and Paris to Constantinople via Vienna and Budapest — yes, the Orient Express at 300 km/h or more.
I've taken a 1911 railway map and added some cities and routes. I'm not sure how much time I'll have for it, though. I have to say that Hungary, at least on the map, doesn't have many obvious stations or routes. And it's difficult to ensure that all the large cities are included, and that names are correct.

I have all the data one could ask for about 1910, but I didn't work out anything concrete for this Alt 2019. The expulsions and ethnic cleansings however were all taken into account for the alt growth of the total population of each region.
 
Excellent work! I was so impressed I took a 1911 railway map of the empire and started sketching a modern-day rail network.
Thank you! I'm really glad that my little thought-experiment gave you some inspiration!
I'm not sure how much time I'll have to work on it, but it'll be interesting.
Speed is not my forte either. My original thread about the topic is more than two years old by this point:coldsweat:

I hope you'll share your work with us once it's finished!
 
This is what I had in mind for a HSR network, but I'm not sure wether the distances and the amount of lines are appropiate or not. (I hope the embedding works this time.)

The lines are not the actual routes, I just connected the stations with straight lines.

I prioritised domestic needs during my planning, but that's quite a fascinating idea! Could this HS Orient Express be a new line parallel to all to those already drawn up? Where would the line go past Budapest? Towards Belgrade of Bucharest? A route through Belgrade to Constantinople could include Sofia too, so the line would go through one more capital city like that.

Too many possible destinations or too few? As for the names, I personally tried to go with the historical German names, the Hungarian wiki articles usually included those.
 
Do you think you Vienna will be the European equipment of New York?
Think about it they’re gonna be a ton of ethnic group when want to move there,
It is gonna be very diversed with different language and cultures and it might be the richest and greatest urban centers in all Europe

I think that Berlin and London passes Vienna even if not much. Of course Vienna would be much bigger city than in OTL.

It would certainly be one of the most diverse metropolises of Europe, if not else. As for its wealth, it would be in a respectable position, but I don't think it would get the top spot.

Don't forget Budapest, which was also an incredibly diverse and vibrant city - in fact, there was such a large and vibrant Jewish community there that the nickname that it was sometimes given (disproportionately by Anti-Semites) was <German word for Jew>-pest. (Also, 3 of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century came from the same neighborhood in Budapest: Teller, Szilard, and von Neumann - who was one of the Greatest thinkers to ever live - to the extent that they had the same Maths teacher). So it would be more that there would be several great cosmopolitan super-cities in AH, which would be one of the greatest intellectual powerhouses in the world.
 
I have all the data one could ask for about 1910, but I didn't work out anything concrete for this Alt 2019. The expulsions and ethnic cleansings however were all taken into account for the alt growth of the total population of each region.
A reminder that FF was to push a massive Germanization campaign, not by force but with soft power, wanting to create a super Austria identity based on german-Austrian culture.
 
Don't forget Budapest, which was also an incredibly diverse and vibrant city
For anyone curious, Budapest's population in 1910 looked like this:
Language:
Hungarian - 85,88%
German - 8,96%
Slovak - 2,31%
Polish - 0,66%
Czech-Moravian - 0,57%
Serb - 0,45%
Croat - 0,32%
Romanian - 0,32%
Italian - 0,10%
Bulgarian - 0,07%
Slovene - 0,04%
Ruthenian - 0,03%
Bunjevac - 0,01%
Other - 0,28%
Religion:
Roman Catholic - 59,77%
Israelite - 23,14%
Calvinist - 9,88%
Lutheran - 4,95%
Greek Catholic - 1,07%
Orthodox - 0,79%
Unitarian - 0,24%
Other - 0,16%

This reminds me of this thread:

How exactly would that work? Via entertainment, like movies and such?
 
A lot of work went into this and I much appreciate it. If we take a middle of the road approach and assume a GDP per capita similar to Italy, we'd have another economic heavyweight power with a 3.5 trillion GDP, giving it a massive economy and a big global voice.
 
Yes, a lot of soft power , he was taking points from USA and France in how to pull it
Very interesting. A great side effect of such efforts could be the establishment of a robust film industry.

I was planning on giving the country greater wealth than what Italy IOTL has.

The lines in Italy are mostly good. The Udine-Venice line would probably stop at Treviso, and continue from Venice to Padua, where it would split to a southern line heading to Rome via Bologna, Florence and maybe Sienna, and a western line heading to Turin via Verona and Milan (possibly also a split at Milan heading to Genoa), and thence either a line or plans for a line through the Alps to southern France. A line running up the pass from Villach to Salzburg would also be reasonable and cut transit times from the port of Trieste to markets in Central Europe significantly.

There's likely also lines from Lviv into OTL Ukraine, to Kyiv (and from there maybe to Moscow and St Petersburg) and down through Moldova to Odessa to access the Black Sea. Assuming reasonably good relations between Danubia and its eastern neighbours. A line up from Krakow through Silesia to Dresden and Berlin would also make sense.

The Czech and Hungarian networks are probably a bit over-dense, with too many stops in small communities. As a general rule, HSR competes with short-haul flights rather than with slower rail. If these areas could be served by conventional rail without significant loss of passengers, they probably would be. Otherwise you end up with white elephant rail lines like many in China, that don't serve enough passengers to get anywhere near breaking even.

The economic data is interesting and tells me that India isn't partitioned(based purely on population), Japan did not hold on to Korea (but may have kept Taiwan), and that the Russian Empire is more-or-less intact and probably had a pretty peaceful 20th Century with a relatively smooth reform process, since it's pretty well developed and has a huge population (thus is very unlikely to have suffered from violent revolution or civil war). The Ottoman Empire is also pretty much intact, though it's unclear how much European and North African territory, if any, it has retained.

Iran hasn't been suffering under a half century of severe sanctions, so decent chance its a stable, moderate constitutional monarchy or secular republic. Indonesia's doing pretty well too, and clearly controls at least most of the former Dutch East Indies (no indication whether or not they hold West Papua). The British Empire has clearly fallen apart, but it seems to have been at least as peaceful and orderly as OTL, since Canada and Australia are doing so well, and there's a decent chance the UK is holding onto strategic points like Singapore, Aden and Hong Kong and remains a major power, in vague personal union/confederacy/alliance with Canada, Australia, NZ and maybe South Africa and Carribean states (and possibly even a looser personal union/alignment with India, if India is a confederation of the Princely States and the former British provinces and the various factions couldn't agree on what to replace the Crown with). If the UK is holding onto Singapore/HK/Aden/Malta, the population increase might be balanced out by the loss of Northern Ireland, since pre war the plan was to release the whole of Ireland as a dominion.

Italy's doing ok, so the Liberal era probably just continued on. Italy may or may not have acquired Libya and some bits and pieces in East Africa, but based on population it didn't keep them. Similarly, France doesn't look to have kept significantly more of its empire than OTL. Maybe Algiers and Oran. Germany probably still holds onto its chunks of Poland, and might have a few colonial possessions hanging about. The Netherlands looks to have lost all its colonial holds bar maybe the Carribean ones. They might still hold onto West Papua through some sort of home rule arrangement, or they might have given it up either to Indonesia or to the UK/Australia or Germany.

Mexico and Brazil look to be doing alright, moving into the realms of middle income countries, which bodes well for Latin America as a whole and suggests that the US probably wasn't as able or inclined to meddle. We don't have any African nations in this top 20, so Africa is probably still mostly resource-exporting client states. South Africa's abscence could indicate either that it broke apart into smaller states or a vicious civil war that ravaged the economy and society of the country, or simply that it stagnated under minority rule. Portugal's abscence suggests that its empire has likely collapsed as well. It might hold onto Macau, Goa or Timor-Leste if other European powers back it up, but likely its lost everything and is very much a minor power. Spain looks to have a similar population and economy to OTL, so probably not much changed there.

Weirdly, Australia and Canada seem to have more or less OTL populations, which seems unlikely unless something terrible happened to them. Both countries took pretty serious hits from the wars, and the loss of life by the UK impacted migration as well. Especially for Australia, since the White Australia policy severely limited non-European migration, and limited even most European migration, favouring British migrants. It was loosened in the 50s out of fear of invasion from Asia (lilely to still arise given that it looks like Asian colonies are still going to get independence, and fear of Chinese invasion goes back to the 19th Century), and then abandoned entirely in the 70s and 80s. TTL Australia, if it has been about as prosperous and racistly paranoid as OTL, probably attracted even more migrants from Europe over the xourse of the first half of the 20th Century, since there won't have been about a decade in which migration shut down entirely due to war and a great depression, and having come over the course of decades rather than in a great mass in the late 40s-early 50s as European refugees were resettled, there's a decent chance that smaller towns and cities received more migrants and thus the population is a bit less concentrated. Unless something significant has happened, I'd bump both Australia and Canada's populations up a bit.
 
The lines in Italy are mostly good. The Udine-Venice line would probably stop at Treviso, and continue from Venice to Padua, where it would split to a southern line heading to Rome via Bologna, Florence and maybe Sienna, and a western line heading to Turin via Verona and Milan (possibly also a split at Milan heading to Genoa), and thence either a line or plans for a line through the Alps to southern France.
Honestly, I didn't really put much thought into the routes and stops outside Austria-Hungary, I just wanted to show a general international connectedness.
A line running up the pass from Villach to Salzburg would also be reasonable and cut transit times from the port of Trieste to markets in Central Europe significantly.
I also considered that. It's already been added to a newer version of the map.
On that note, I began using scribblemaps. It's a pretty good tool for these kind of things.
I also drew in some international routes for fun but I will probably delete those.
The Czech and Hungarian networks are probably a bit over-dense, with too many stops in small communities.
All small blue dots on the map mark cities with 100k–150k people within administrative limits, while the bigger blue dots mark cities with 175k-225k people. Are those too small to be designated as stops? Or the problem is the distance?
As a general rule, HSR competes with short-haul flights rather than with slower rail. If these areas could be served by conventional rail without significant loss of passengers, they probably would be. Otherwise you end up with white elephant rail lines like many in China, that don't serve enough passengers to get anywhere near breaking even.
So a minimum of 100km between stations would be more appropiate?
The economic data is interesting and tells me that India isn't partitioned(based purely on population), Japan did not hold on to Korea (but may have kept Taiwan)
Yep, you're right. And yes, Japan did keep Taiwan which managed to develop into quite a diverse place. Korea was simply too difficult to hold onto however.
and that the Russian Empire is more-or-less intact and probably had a pretty peaceful 20th Century with a relatively smooth reform process
The beginning of the century certainly wasn't peaceful since WW1 still happened, but the avoidance of the October Revolution and the civil war was certainly a great boon compared to OTL. Russia officially became a republic in 1919 after much debate. The country continued to experience numerous political crises in the following decades, but the 2nd half of the century brought stability and soon prosperity.
The Ottoman Empire is also pretty much intact, though it's unclear how much European and North African territory, if any, it has retained.
The territories of OTL Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Israel/Palestine, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and North Yemen are more or less all part of the Ottoman Empire according to the table, but honestly I don't know how to deal with the country. I'm really unsure of its chances of survival to modern times.
Iran hasn't been suffering under a half century of severe sanctions, so decent chance its a stable, moderate constitutional monarchy or secular republic. Indonesia's doing pretty well too, and clearly controls at least most of the former Dutch East Indies (no indication whether or not they hold West Papua).
Something along the lines of the 1953 coup still happened in Iran, but without the bipolar cold war dynamics of OTL, the new regime couldn't survive long and the country soon became a democracy.
Meanwhile, the Dutch rule over Indonesia remained stable without the OTL Japanese invasion, so decolonisation was delayed and happened differently. You could say that an united Indonesia managed to secure political independence, but the Dutch still have a strong presence in the economy of the country.
The British Empire has clearly fallen apart, but it seems to have been at least as peaceful and orderly as OTL, since Canada and Australia are doing so well, and there's a decent chance the UK is holding onto strategic points like Singapore, Aden and Hong Kong and remains a major power, in vague personal union/confederacy/alliance with Canada, Australia, NZ and maybe South Africa and Carribean states (and possibly even a looser personal union/alignment with India, if India is a confederation of the Princely States and the former British provinces and the various factions couldn't agree on what to replace the Crown with).
Britain held onto strategic locations around the globe, and has a bit more influence over the Commonwealth countries, but otherwise it developed quite similarly to OTL. India did infact retain the British Monarch as ceremonial head of state, but only to act as guarantor of sectarian equality within the country.
If the UK is holding onto Singapore/HK/Aden/Malta, the population increase might be balanced out by the loss of Northern Ireland, since pre war the plan was to release the whole of Ireland as a dominion.
Just for the record, WW1 would still happen ITTL. It would just end earlier and would bring less drastic changes to the region.
Italy's doing ok, so the Liberal era probably just continued on. Italy may or may not have acquired Libya and some bits and pieces in East Africa, but based on population it didn't keep them.
Post-Great War, Italy shifted to the left and went through different shades of socialist rule in the following decades. Italian colonial possessions were neglected thus Libya was never truly pacified. Italy was first among the European powers to fully decolonise.
Similarly, France doesn't look to have kept significantly more of its empire than OTL. Maybe Algiers and Oran.
France tried to hold onto its colonial possessions as long as possible, however the demographic decline of the country lead to the eventual embrace of decolonisation and the encouragement of immigration of the colonial settlers back to the Metropol. Leaving the colonies left the French government with more money, which was used to build up a robust welfare state. Demographic trends soon began to reverse.
Germany probably still holds onto its chunks of Poland, and might have a few colonial possessions hanging about. The Netherlands looks to have lost all its colonial holds bar maybe the Carribean ones. They might still hold onto West Papua through some sort of home rule arrangement, or they might have given it up either to Indonesia or to the UK/Australia or Germany.
Most European powers took the neocolonialist approach to their too big or strategically unimportant colonies. The imperialist rational might have faced less challenges ITTL, however economics still proved to be quite a compelling force when it came to the question of letting go of empires. Furthermore, with the lack of a power like the Soviet Union, fear of losing assets in newly independent countries was less present.
Mexico and Brazil look to be doing alright, moving into the realms of middle income countries, which bodes well for Latin America as a whole and suggests that the US probably wasn't as able or inclined to meddle.
European competition to the US in the region and the lack of the Big Red Menace allowed the region to experience significantly healthier development.
We don't have any African nations in this top 20, so Africa is probably still mostly resource-exporting client states.
There might be no African countries in the top 20, but a few of them are doing alright, especially Egypt and Nigeria. Both of those countries have GDP(PPP) over a trillion dollars. In a new table, Egypt might even make it into the top 20 since I'm considering attaching the Kufra district to it. Italian colonial negligence would mean someone else would need to fill their role, after all.
South Africa's abscence could indicate either that it broke apart into smaller states or a vicious civil war that ravaged the economy and society of the country, or simply that it stagnated under minority rule.
It just didn't make it into the top 20, it's doing reasonably fine. Apartheid as we know it never got introduced ITTL, however unequal power sharing arrangements still left whites dominating the country for the entirety of the 20th century. Things ony began to change starting from the late '90s.
Portugal's abscence suggests that its empire has likely collapsed as well.
Portugal is too small to get in the top 20. It is somewhat richer than IOTL though.
It might hold onto Macau, Goa or Timor-Leste if other European powers back it up, but likely its lost everything and is very much a minor power.
Yep, but instead of simply losing them, the Portuguese sold those lands. (Well, they didn't really have a choice, it was a result of Great Power arbitration.)
Spain looks to have a similar population and economy to OTL, so probably not much changed there.
Spain remained a republic as it didn't fall into civil war ITTL. I gave the country marginally higher population and a sliver bit better GDP numbers to reflect.
Weirdly, Australia and Canada seem to have more or less OTL populations, which seems unlikely unless something terrible happened to them. Both countries took pretty serious hits from the wars, and the loss of life by the UK impacted migration as well.
WW1 still happened, so the huge loss of life would still apply here. British and Dominion losses seem marginal for WW2 to justify significantly higher populations for Australia and Canada ITTL, imo.

Feel like Danubian Federation GDP per capita is way too high - it still started way behind and had very uneven developments between regions - you have Austria and Czech which already developed (and their individual GDP per capita still trailed France the last time Austria-Hungary was still an entity) but OTOH Hungary and the Adriatic states which were way less developed compared to say, France. Note that only countries with much smaller population and the US surpassed Germany IOTL in GDP per capita - assume that Germany level of development is OTL or higher.

42, 000 - 48,000 is about right IMO.
