Elvis and Dolly were still very famous musicians, but mostly not because of their success in Dixie but because of their success in America. They were some of the first musicians of their chosen genre to hit it big in America and became icons there (its fairly common for musicians in Dixie to go off to Hollywood in hopes of making big, though in the recent past Atlanta's entertainment industry has grown incredibly). It was this explosion of fame abroad that increased their profile in Dixie and made them national figures of pride. It was a national tragedy when Elvis died in 2017 of a stroke.What are/were some of the more famous Southerners of OTL up to here in Dixie? Namely, Elvis Presley, Muhammad Ali, Dolly Parton, MLK, and Rhett & Link?
There are no Exclusion Acts so Asian-Americans make up a larger share of the population in America than in OTL. They are 11.6% of the population in America just behind the Hispanic population at 12.5% (Asian-Americans are expected to become the largest ethnic minority soon).Interesting. That reminds me, what is the Asian-*American population like ITTL? How is Asian-*American stereotypes and culture different?
Here's an updated infobox with new popular vote tallies and with a new map.2018 West Florida State House Elections
In 2018, the National Party lost their outright majority in the state House of Delegates of West Florida for the first time since 1988. Unionist leader Stacey Abrams (who just recently took over after former leader David Baria resigned his position to successfully run for the Senate) became the new Speaker of the House with support from the Parti La Louisiane and their leader Dale Guillot who became Deputy Leader of the House. The Unionists were able to ride the coattails of presidential candidate Mitch Landrieu who narrowly carried the normally National state. The Unionists and the PLL were also able to ride off the long dissatisfaction of the state's National government, which also helped John Bel Edwards to defeat governor Bill McCollum three years earlier. The State Senate wasn't up for election in 2018 and remained with a National majority. The National Party did however gain the Lt. Governorship in 2018 as incumbent PLL Lt. Gov. Caroline Fayard also successfully ran for Senate only 3 years into her term with her position being filled by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate as dictated by the West Florida Constitution, National member Victor Gaston.

The current Emperor of North Germany is Georg Friedrich I who has ruled since his father's death in 1994.
You can't blame a gal for being persistent. (I never even realized that they were the same person til you mentioned it)
There is no 2nd Sino-Japanese War ITTL, so the Chinese Civil War continues to rage on in China with the Communists being funded heavily by the Soviets and the Nationalists being aided by the West (and even Japan). It is generally considered the first proxy war of the Cold War. The Nationalists weren't doing too well and so they made a deal with the devil AKA Japan for much heavier support in the form of troops in return for the Nationalists turning a blind eye to Taiwan and Manchuria.What's China and Hong Kong like?
So we have a traffic light coalition (Ampelkoalition) ITTL?Schwesig announced on October 5 that the SPD along with the Greens and the LDPN would join in a coalition to form a government with Schwesig as the chancellor.
What happened, and why could both the SPD and Greens gain so many votes? What are their stances on the Balkans, the Trade and Customs Agreenemt (Nordseehandels- und zollunion? NSHZU?), and on the "bankruptcy crisis"? Who went bankrupt (the province?), for what reasons, and what do the SPD and Greens plan to do? Also, between which peoples are there "reviving ethnic tensions" in the Balkan, and what is the issue with the NSHZU about? Does North Germany want to leave the agreement or modify it?Important issues for the election included the reviving ethnic tensions in the Balkans, the North Sea Trade and Customs Agreement, and the Bankruptcy Crisis in Silesia. Schwesig and the SPD also promised to hold a referendum for the monarchy should they form the government.
The headline was supposed to say "Supreme Court Rules Against Mississippi School in Language Question" but I accidentally left that out. Mississippi has a small Francophone minority along the Mississippi River and especially in the Natchez area and the Natchez School District was accused of not providing enough resources for Francophone students despite French actually being one of the state's official languages.What was this Supreme Court ruling regarding Mississippi about? In Arkansas, as far as I saw, districts were gerrymandered to the disadvantage of the Francophone minority(?), was that the case in Mississippi, too?
Also, what is going on in the rest of Europe? Might we see a communist France, for example?
The SPD and the Greens largely gained due to dissatisfaction with the ruling Centre, LDPN coalition. Wulff was largely seen as ineffective and not able to properly corral his party and coalition members into line (especially the Rhineland Independents who were notoriously hard to please).So we have a traffic light coalition (Ampelkoalition) ITTL?

Also, could you provide some information on what the 2015 election looked like?
