Why are European loins always so more fertile in these scenarios than in reality? Africa is not the US frontier.
NO. IT. WAS. NOT.Random lines is literally what the European colonists drew, disregarding native lines.
Not quite, no. The European borders did follow preexisting boundaries, if only in terms of when they conquered a native state those were then their borders. Not only that but they weren't as 'random' as one might think. By necessity they often followed natural borders (rivers and mountains being big ones), its only in the deserts and impassable jungle that that you get the 'straight lines drawn on a map'. With all due respect, the borders on your map are arbitrary for the sake of being arbitrary which does nobody any favours, including the Irish.Random lines is literally what the European colonists drew, disregarding native lines. The Irish could care no less for the natives than the English.
What's to be learned from present critiques of your work is that the lines that exist on a map should have a reason for their existence. Borders, even when drawn arbitrarily and irregardless of any natural borders or what's going on at the ground level between the peoples that live there, have a rational behind them. You don't have to draw your borders perfectly, but you should have a reason for why your borders are what they are. The Borders like the rest of your map should have a history to them.I've been criticized for drawing straight lines in the past. Not doing that again.
Who owns the us? I believe the Germany owns the Northeast and Midwest whilst France owns the south but who owns the west coast?View attachment 493539
Luck to the Max
Ireland revolts during the English Civil War, successfully establishing a united Irish republic in 1686. The young nation successfully wrestles Scotland and Wales out of English hands by 1750, and the Irish navy developed to be on par with that of the English, initiating a 19th-century naval arms race between the two. The Potato Famine, as a result of early industrialization, is butterflied away. The United States fails to defend against neocolonialism as it is picked apart by European powers. Russia takes advantage of the Anglo-Celtic rivalry and the absence of the American threat, expanding even further than it did in OTL. Mesoamerica becomes a playground for Irish exploitation. In 1920, the balance of power is determined by two major blocs. On the Irish side are Spain, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Romania, and Poland. On the English side are Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Hungary, Portugal, Sweden, and Austria. The peace is currently kept, however, a shoe may drop any time sooner or later, and this cold war is about to get hot...
US fails to pay debts to France, Germany, and Italy after it mistreats, exploits, and disenfranchises French, German, and Italian immigrants. In the Treaty of St. Louis, US is split between France (Southeast), Germany (Northeast), and Italy (West).Who owns the us? I believe the Germany owns the Northeast and Midwest whilst France owns the south but who owns the west coast?
Oh, this is so fucking woke. I love it, and not (quite) just because it means the subway system would be able to work so much better with two sets of trunk lines and okay I'm getting ahead of myself but imagine. Imagine Jersey City filled with elevated train lines.From the UARverse
