This makes a very satisfying read. The sheer depth of this scenario never ceases to impress. The idea of such a massive election is quite breathtaking!The 2016 Chinese General Election was the largest election in human history, the first to ever record over a billion votes cast, and the 9th free election to the Legislative Yuan, the largest legislative body in the world. With a turnout of 1,148,395,174 voters, the election took one month to conduct, lasting from the 1st of July to the 31st of July. The election was seen as a referendum on the unpopular ruling China Social Democratic Party, which had seen the moderate Guangdong Union leave the Progressive Alliance and join the Alliance for Democracy, causing Premier Wen Jiabao to be replaced by Chen Min'er, who then went on to act as provisional President after the impeachment and removal of President Liu Yunshan.

The Maritimes probably got the equivalent of their New England Planters on schedule, but they never experienced the shock mass migration of Loyalists, which should have interesting effects. Mostly because in time I’d imagine the local governors clamping down on township government like in reality would be way less tolerated without revolutionary trauma, even if population growth is rather slower in TTL. Or being residents of different countries in OTL versus TTL.
Do Anglo Maritimes have anything particularly distinctive like Maritimers being a bastion of loyalism in our world or do they fit in with Massachusites, Connecticutters, etc. vis-a-vis each other?
Oh yeah, I do have to ask one of the most inane and nit-picky questions one could ever ask on this timeline....I’m gonna do it anyway.
Why not NEW Plymouth instead of merely Plymouth (province)? Technically it is unique toponymy... and lets Plymouth, England retain notice as just “Plymouth” without need for distinction a la New York vis-a-vis York.
That is way more and legitimately interesting than I expected - thank you!
