Not ure about Prague and Varsovie republic AND definitely not about Anglo republic
Perhaps I have already published an equivalent version on the same subject in Map Thread XIX, but I represent to you a map with British Sister Republics under the French Revolution. In my opinion, it may be different from the previous one I proposed.

Since it's under the French Revolution, everything is in French.
I've tried my best to implement these two in a single Q-BAM map:
Silesia was Bohemian since 13th century until annexation by Prussia and had German majority until 1945. Pomerania was also German from 13th Century to 1945.Like Silesia and Pomeranian. Plus from the looks of it, Poland is landlocked.
What in the ever-loving-heck is this?Cross posted from the latest MotF.
In 2276, the Presidency does not matter. All power is held by the Speaker of the House, the CIA Director (hereditary), and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (with 144 Justices). The Presidency is a purely ceremonial role, akin to a king or queen in a Constitutional Monarchy. Presidents give some (mostly apolitical) speeches and entertain foreign dignitaries at the White Dome, the executive mansion.
The American electorate decided that the incumbent Vice President, Victoria X Jackson, had taken her role too seriously. The people, knowing the presidency to be a joke, wanted a president who also knew the presidency was a joke. When two (former?) male strippers ran, they cornered the women’s vote, and got enough men on board with their immature antics to pull an upset over their rivals.
These were chaotic and dangerous times, with the Ongoing Evacuation, domestic discord and protests, and tensions with the Polish Ascendancy and their client state, the Greater American Union. The people of the United States of America didn’t want an active, political presidency.
And they didn’t get one with the Aquino/Bhandarkar Administration. Instead of doing anything serious or political, they held traveling parties and festivals across the United States. They held singing contests for charity to raise money for the Evacuation. They challenged the Ascendant of the Polish Ascendancy to a dance-off (which quickly devolved into a rap battle). Nothing was serious, but everything they did made the American people feel better, and improved relations with their neighbors.
Reed Aquino went down in the history books as the most successful president in two centuries.
