    He's not joking. It was a huge issue because many of the refugees 'rescued' to Greece couldn't speak Greek and had trouble integrating.

    They were in the right place at the right time. With Constantinople being made a free city Britain feared the Russians in the Mediterranean. This decided to carry favour with the Greek and give them a lot of land in order to bribe them into their new alliance structure they plan to build against Russia.

    Based on the fact that "Mohammedan" is given a single color in the key, I would assume that Greeks are being defined as "Greek Orthodox Christians". Of course the Albanians don't seem to have been lumped in with the other Muslims, so I may be wrong.

    The Autonomous Republics, although they're more independent than the other states, have less power in the national government, so Kansas is still on top.

    And here is the CARIBBEAN CONFEDERACY (aka MEGA FLORIDA)
    History:

    In the American Civil War (1850-1857), the Southern states of the American Union separated from their Northern counterparts in order to preserve the institution of slavery. The plurality of the American South was Anglo-American, but there were large French, Spaniard, Amerindian, and enslaved African minorities who suffered under the system of Anglo supremacy. While the South won independence, its government soon collapsed into rivaling factions. For the next half-century, the Southern states were a site of violent conflict on the North American continent, with rivaling dictators sponsored by European monarchs and the surviving American Union to the North.

    In 1898, the diverse inhabitants of the American Gulf shores united under the leadership of Louisianan Marshall Leon Chauvet. Chauvet would successfully wage conquest against rival Southern governments, aided by refugees and sympathetic minorities from the rival Anglo-supremacist Southern governments. While on-and-off conflict would continue with Southern dictators until the American Union's invasion in 1919, Chauvet's regime would always have military superiority. In 1907, Chauvet resigned from the position of Marshall in order to allow a transition to parliamentary democracy, inspired by the American Union. The new nation would be called the Gulf Confederacy and its capital would be the port city of San Fernando, Florida. While the early decades of the Gulf Confederacy were far from stable, with coup threats and civil rights violations common, the nation would stabilize into the mid-20th century, thanks in part to aid from the American Union and European powers, as well as war exhaustion from the long decades of conflict.

    Chauvet and his generation of racial progressives would soon be succeeded by the next generation of revolutionaries in the 1950s who fought to overthrow European colonial governments in Africa and the Caribbean. The Gulf Confederacy aided these revolutionaries, providing training and weaponry at the cost of embargoes by colonial powers.

    In 1962, Spain, bankrupted by European wars, launched a desperate invasion of newly independent Cuba. The Cuban military collapsed quickly and Spanish soldiers launched a violent and organized campaign of suppression, massacring villages specifically targeting Mulatto and Mestizo populations. While Spain was soon forced to retreat once more from the island under international and domestic pressure, the atrocities committed in Cuba had lasting effects on perceptions of decolonization. Newly independent countries, especially in the Caribbean, sought stability and protection from European powers and domestic instability, and turned to the vanguard of the anti-colonial revolution from a century prior: the Gulf Confederacy.

    While the Gulf Confederacy, as it was, was not strong enough to defeat a European power in combat, it would be strong if the Caribbean ex-colonies united together, joining their small armies. In the 1970s, the renamed Caribbean Confederacy expanded where European powers contracted, adding decolonized states to its Confederation in a massive expansion.

    By the 21st century, the Caribbean Confederacy, 84 million strong, is a shining example of post-colonial development. Stagnation, suffering, and conflict in the 1970s melted away thanks to strengthened trade ties between member states. The Caribbean has become a second Mediterranean, criss-crossed with vast trade ships bringing sugar, machinery, and tobacco to domestic and foreign ports. Immigrants from across the Americans move to the Confederacy for its many opportunities (and racially progressive policies). This is not to say the Caribbean Confederacy is perfect. Corruption, poverty, and crime are common in some areas of the state. However, by uniting and pooling resources and efforts, the Confederacy has made great strides in those areas.

    Yes, as part of the Caribbean Confederacy’s transparency efforts, journalists can obtain arrest information relatively easily across the states. Florida is still especially crazy though

    I imagine it came down to membership in Greek Orthodox Churches. Anyways, not like the Armenians or Assyrians were treated much better by the Turks and Kurds.

    Indeed. the exchange took religion as a dividing line.
    In another timeline it could be different things.
    For example I have recently read someone suggesting that in such an expanded Greece the muslim element would probably adressed the way the Kurdish element has been adressed in the Turkish republic or as many local population groups in OTL Greece. Meaning "They are uneducated peasants, we have to enlighten them as to be proper Greeks". Usually that was via a combination of marketing and beating* for a timeperiod of 1-2-3 generations.

    * The percentage of the incredients varied depending of the place. In my village it was only the former, with kids after school pressing the teacher's language to the parents. In areas of Macedonia, were there was the alternative nationalist beacon of Bulgaria nearby, the latter was also very much in use.

    Politically or financially important states are colored, and their less important neighbors are numbered. States outside the confederation are named on the map.
    The black squares in Wallonia are Namur (northeast), the old capital, and Orleans (center), the new capital.

    Based off Augenis's "Switcheroo" AH vignette, which switches France's and Germany's experiences (focusing specifically on the 1800s). Read it, it's a fun premise.

    After the final defeat of Emperor Friedrich Hohenzollern's revolutionary German armies, the great men gathered at the Congress of Arles resolve to set the world right again--but some aspects of the old order are simply irreparable. The Holy Roman Empire of the French Nation, defunct since the Archduchy of Burgundy's self-promotion to Imperial status, is therefore officially replaced by the French Confederation. Despite its name, the Confederation is only a loose bond, and the mess of kingdoms, empires, duchies, margraviates, bishoprics, counties, and free cities that make up the Gallic lands are all effectively sovereign. As the upstart militarists of the Wallonian Kingdom move to overturn the status quo the Burgundian Empire represents, France appears to be in for a rough century...
