Hol upProposed retcon for Hatsunia:
What Hatsunia is about:
Creating afuturistic (in a near-future sense) andprogressive country that addresses common criticisms of Japan and anything its socioeconomic institutions "lag behind" in.
Themed after a personifiedsoftware whose name means "the first sound from the future."
Japanmissed thesoftware revolution. Hatsunia embraced it.
What Hatsunia is not about:
waifu body pillows, hentai
I wanted to have more interesting landforms in the east instead of just repeating the general shape of the western islands.@Pipcard I love that redesign, although maybe the eastern islands are a bit too much to the east compared to the older version
dude stop we don't need hentai
I'm not feeling good then almost made me throw up
DO NOT pull this crap again.Hol up
Source: my apparentice:
My general idea was a stronger progressive movement and a desire to replace the lost stars motivated the creation of the two states but it wasn’t very thought out why they would exist without the civil war. Delaware combined with the portion of Maryland and Virginia on its side of the peninsula. More subtle border changes like the Illinois/Wisconsin border have to have an earlier POD
So the US state borders are kind of random but I did try to keep the state borders to those that were actually proposed in OTL
Gotcha. I didn't catch that border between Delaware and Maryland. And I'm not saying West Virginia and Nickajack/Watauga/whatever without the civil war is implausible; the differences that caused those regions to take the Unionist side OTL would still exist, war or no war.
