    As an Israeli, the map is nice and pretty accurate but I have some suggestions:
    The arab districts are pretty much accurate, just get rid of the ones between Manasseh and Zebulun-Issachar and the eastern half of the one in Naphtaly. Also, there were 12 tribes none of them is called Horeb and Zin. I suggest you to find the map of the 12 tribes on google and give the Sinai territory to the tribes that are beyond the jordan river.
    If you want to ask something, PM me.

    @Vertci I love it! It’s so good! The only suggestion I have is, like @Eylondambovich said, change “Zin” to “Reuben” and “Horeb” to “Gad.” Zin and Horeb may have been actual people’s living in the Sinai in Biblical times, but if they existed, they weren’t Israelites. Seriously, though, super good work, it looks so cool, and you probably don’t really need to change it if you don’t want to. I’ve actually been hoping for more Israel stuff for a while, too, so thank you!

    Y’all know that this is based on actual Biblical geography right? All the provinces are more-or-less the same places that the tribes lived in. Horeb and Zin were non-Israeli tribes that lived in Sinai. If they annexed land across the Jordan river, the northern bit would be Gad and the southern would be Reuben, because those tribes lived across the Jordan, with Gad to the north and Reuben to the south.

    Yes, but Israel would rather name their provinces in a geographically incorrect manner than name their provinces after non-Israeli tribes. That’s the point we were trying to make. I mean, maybe they wouldn’t for the sake of historical accuracy, but I feel like strong nationalism would sort of come first in the eyes of this Israeli government.

    EDIT: On second thought, I guess it could go either way. Especially if Israel, at the time that the provinces were named, had a plan for invading Jordan in the works. Then it would make complete sense. It's really up to @Vertci.

    I will guess that the Israeli government is an alliance between the military and (socially conservative/populist) Orthodox Jews.

    Oh wow, awesome! I'm just glad I was able to give back a bit, thank you for all your hard work!


    Thank you guys! To clarify:

    Zin is named for the Wilderness of Zin, as described to the South of the Tribes; Horeb is named for Mount Horeb (i.e. Mount Sinai). According to the Tanakh, the tribes didn't receive territory much past the Negev, so I just rolled with what limited geography the Bible provides for Sinai. Additionally, the Arab districts aren't really meant to be accurate to our world - it's alternate history, and I made some assumptions as to where the Israeli government would centralize the country's Arab population.

    How would going from New England to the United States be like? How would customs be like, and etc?

    I would really like to see this timeline, however 250 pages is alot to go through, would anyone be willing to condense it for me?
