    Very interesting premise, but a couple of questions. Is the scenario suppose to be set in 1925 or 2016/2017?

    And since you referred to the United States with (Washington), does that mean there's another country called the United States (Maybe United States (Boston))?

    The former.

    The "Free States of America" and "Empire of the Golden Sea" also refer to themselves as the United States of America. Their capitals are located in Boston and Burr (OTL Kansas City).

    From over on SV.com: Xiamlo is the term for Siam in the Min South dialect of Hokkien. I was thinking that the Chinese diaspora would be significantly larger than OTL in such a scenario, and with Thailand one of the nation's with the most Hokkienese immigrants (even the Thai King's line is part Hokkienese:hushedface:), I saw the Hokkienese basically taking over Siam.
    OTL Baton Rouge.
    It's actually OTL Xi'an with a name I came up with while being phenomenally lazy.

    The coloring system isn't all that accurate, but here, new jersey-new york-maryland (plus a couple of states I can't name) is a former Andalucian colony.

    Thanks for replying.

    Baton Rouge! I 100% did not see that coming! I thought for sure it would be New York City or something. Is New Tunis also a former Andalusian colony?

    That'd be waay too clichéd;).
    Yup. Back when Al-Andalus owned most of North Africa.

    I like how Luxembourg got Arelerland returned to it, though I must question if the Dutch north would be happy to lose Maastricht. And whether or not Limburg would have been divided in that way if there was partition of it. Though I suppose a river runs down that route... Actually, is Maastricht in East Limburg or West Limburg? Unless one is called Liege or something. I see Brabant is also partitioned as it is IOTL, so I am wondering why they don't have the country split between Dutch, Walloon, Flemish, and Luxembourgish areas. And is Germany the only country in Western Europe that hasn't devolved power to minority regions? Considering that fully half of Birttainy only speaks French and how Cornwalls here has quadruple the land Cornish speaking people occupy, I would say Posen would be given some autonomy. Though perhaps the new name for Germany means it is mostly just a diplomatic and trade union here. Do you have a write-up for this in the previous thread?

    Ayyyyy thanks for hosting it, mate! :D

    Slow internet will forever be the bane of my existence. :p

    Many minority languages survived ITTL and have been given co-official status in their respective autonomous regions. I forgot to denote the Flemish as an autonomous state, so that's human error on my part. :p

    No, I don't have a write-up for it.

    Some interesting ideas, but you've definitely exaggerated minority language areas (Occitan, Normand and Provencal existing at all and Cornwall including Devon in particular)

    Cornish managed to stick around for longer and still has a large number of speakers that are able to grant it co-official status. Same with Irish/Scottish Gaelic and the French autonomous states.

    Looking good! :D

    Yes, but Devon hasn't been majority Celtic since the 10th Century. It's speculated there may have been some small pockets of the language remaining in parts of South Hams into the Middle Ages, but the boundary of the English language was already over the Tamar by 1300AD.

    Granted it then endured until the early 19th Century IOTL so surviving longer could end up with minority status in Cornwall, but it's not going to include Devon.

    Was that post of most liked maps pages 330-499 ever posted? Or did I just skip right over it?

    What a weird timeline. A stronger, surviving Napoleonic France doesn't lead to a weaker America? Get out.

    Not a traditional map that you'd expect to find in this thread, but a map all the same:

    It's Europe viewed from Russia, and man, I actually had trouble telling what it was from just the geography alone at first :p
