I love all the tiny, messed up looking states in the Old Northwest-particularly that MiniOhioHello, everyone! It's been a long time since I posted a map, and even longer since I posted a vector map, so I thought I'd try getting back into the swing of it. I didn't sink a lot of effort into the lore (a recurring theme in my maps), but that was sorta beside the point. I've been busy with work over the past few months, and I wanted something to take my mind off it. I started off making a map of a United States where all the states that had western claims after the Revolution didn't have any, and all those that didn't did. That spiraled into a British/Spanish wank, which evolved into the map below.
With the British holding onto the South and seizing the West Coast, and the Spanish holding onto some of Luisiana, the United States lacks much of its OTL territory, but a war between the US and Britain ended in the US forcing them to cede much of Western Canada. In the aftermath, Manitoulin Island falls into geopolitical limbo and becomes a sort of Canadian Transnistria. As a result, Canada is severely reduced, and Britain's western territories become a separate nation, which calls itself Pacifica. Elsewhere, in the South, the British kept some of the original native territory around as protectorates and buffer states, which were creatively named East Indiana and West Indiana. Instead of successfully revolting against Spanish rule, Mexico takes a route much like OTL Canada, gradually getting more autonomy and separating from Spain in the 20th century with most of Central America under its control.
