Also that Korea is much smaller than the one shown in the map
Two proposals for an independent Western Canada by the various western secessionist parties over the years
ill use m-bam next time! thanks for the opinion!
A very bordergore Pakistan that never was
What would be the capital of India in this case?
I'm not sure of the exact demographic... but wouldn't this pakistan have more Hindus than Muslims (before any... population transfer...) ? Or at the very least a very large (40%+) minority of Hindus?
I mean Hyderabad was already 80% Hindu in the 50s.
Through some lucky coincidence while googling that proposal, I found an earlier version of the one @Crazy Boris shared.
Also here's a good article on the logistics of the implementation of the previously posted version:
People clearly hadn't invented originality yet.
I don't want to know how many people would die for no reason if they actually tried to implement this monstrosity.
And I thought the population exchanges between India and Pakistan were bad...
The Osmanian Sea and Osmanstan are really insult to injury sort of things. And yes, it seems the entire population of Bhutan would be deported. If there was a need. The Bengali could flood the area with people if they wanted. Doubted they would want to go up their unless Bengal was literally being flooded.
In March 1919, there were some negotiations between the Soviet government and an American delegation led by William C. Bullitt for a peace offer between the different factions of the Russian Civil War. What this would have resulted in if it was achieved would be an effective partition of Russia between the Whites and Reds at the current borders. You can read more on it in Wikipedia and this old thread (please no necro). I attempted to make a Worlda of what this would have resulted in.
This is the de facto situation on March 14, 1919.
And here is what this would have resulted in. I have taken out Entente occupation zones, as one term was Entente withdrawal, and also removed pockets of Bolsheviks behind the main frontlines.
That's a cursed proposal
It is. The problems with this are so many...
>Litbel and Lithuania coexisting
Don't forget Belorussia.
Poor Latvia, getting split into two tiny exclaves separated by a ton of Bolshevik territory
I mean it's quite likely the Estonians would annex that Latvian land they held, since it was very small and unmanageable from the Latvians. That would leave them in Courland, which is still sad.
You have Estonia gaining land Reds (Communists, Bolsheviks, etc.) occupied in Estonia, so there is already an issue there. That and your later suggestion the Estonians would just annex it. It is possible, as things hadn't been set in stone and it would just be a bit more of Livonia attached to Estland, but it might go over poorly. Omniatlas (I know their maps have been wrong before, like showing Fascist Italy getting all of Slovenia once) seems to suggest there was also plenty of momentum going. Not like the Balts, Ukrainians, and others are exactly going to be rolling over because a bunch of foreigners are getting tired of being in the Arctic far from the fighting and tell them that two brands of Russians wanting to make them serfs (given the leanings in practice and opinion by the Bolsheviks and Absolutists) get to keep whatever land they have. I don't see either side, especially not the Bolsheviks, abiding by this. They would crack down and use the time to purge people and take their stuff while the Green guys are floundering with what to do without much industry in the land they got. Sure, the Allies left the Far East, but that was because the Communists pretended an independent state was being set up, then move down in after everyone had left. Ahhh right, forgot the main point. The map below shows what seems to be momentum as the Balts moved further into Latvia, so I don't see why they would stop moving. Also, pretty sure Crimea has its own group in charge here. A minor color difference, but I assume that, like the anarchists on the mainland, it was because of the multiple factions at work.
