The country’s official name is: KINGDOM OF CAROLINA.
Capital and largest city: Ultima (250,000)
Population: 8.2 million (including residents from other Hermandad nations).
The country’s official name is: SCANDINAVIAN EMPIRE or NORDIC EMPIRE (SKANDINAVISKE IMPERIUM or NORDISKE IMPERIUM); the two terms are now used almost interchangeably. The short form is SCANDINAVIA or NORDEN.
Capital and largest city: Copenhagen (0.6 million)
Population: 9 million (excluding colonies).
They probably would have, and may well looking back, but I don't think it's going to matter for a while.Do the Carolinian people understand that code, like the Japanese did iOTL?
The fact his wife and children got out would seem to suggest there's some historical basis, but perhaps it's a Heritage Point of Controversy.So if King William's is martyrd does the truth come out later or is the in time line writer being very very cheeky?
Estimated OTL Population: 10,208,000
LTTW OTL Difference: 2,008,000 deficit
Definitely a major hit. This is likely due to how the different economic circumstances led to there being less slaves compared to OTL. Given that OTL Deep South was more than 35~40% African American around this time, you can get a significant reduction just by having fewer slaves, even if you include the workers from Hermandad nations.
Note: OTL Atlanta's proper population was 89,872, with the metropolitan population being 419,375.
Which would not make sense since OTL Deep South had only two major sources of immigration until the 1970s: Slaves and Louisiana. Sure, the fact that we have the Cherokee Emp;ire is certainly a major block to immigration, but even then it would be difficult to make a different of 20%.Actually, all you'd need is less immigration. This version of the ENA was historically less welcoming of Catholics, for example, and more insistent on anglicising than the US was.
I kept thinking that it is taking the ENA longer to conquer Carolina than it should, given that almost half a year has now passed since the start of the war, but then I remember the sheer size of the North American continent and it makes sense again. One would hardly expect even an all-powerful German Empire to steamroller through a Franco-Spanish alliance and get all the way to Gibraltar in six months. Not to mention, of course, that the UPSA is a much stronger opponent than that… which reminds me, has the UPSA conquered the indirect ENA foothold in South America, Venezuela, yet? I suppose not, because otherwise the Choctaw from one update ago wouldn’t have referred to the UPSA as losing the war.
There is also the immense difference between OTL and LTTW populations, which I have calculated. ENA does not have the same sort of immense population advantage, with UPA+Carolina (47 million) not being that far behind ENA (54 million). Add in New Spain and the other Hermandad members on Novamund, and ENA is actually at a numerical disadvantage, offset by how it has the population pretty concentrated.
In a way, the situation is similar to the Sudetenland Crisis, with ENA being Germany to Carolina's Czechoslovakia and UPA's France.Fair enough, I suppose. I think it was mostly my subconscious going 'as long as either of the superpowers has the edge, it should be able to conquer a small territory like Carolina pretty fast what with America's wide open spaces allowing for much more maneuver than in Europe' without realizing just how matched the two blocs were and the fact that Carolina was actually a lot bigger than I had in mind.
