    I find the names for the subdivisions for Germany super weird. The divisions make sense based on geography and culture (except maybe Austrian Moravia, which just seems to pop up frequently on failed proposals...), but expanding Thuringia eastwards, using Palatinate for the entire Rhineland, and moving Eastphalia north of the Elbe is just bizarre.

    It isn't so bad. Thuriginia and Saxony had some overlap with names and territory in the past, and the Ernestine and Albertine Duchies were called Saxony at various times. There is a Saxony here already, so they gave the other the name of Thuringia. Might be ways to explain the Palantine part as the Wittlesbasch consolidating their various dynasty lands there, and the Prince-Bishoprics, though as those were straddling the rather than being in one side, it does indeed not fit here. Heck, I think the that much of the Rhine was only ever a border when the Entente were occupying it, and even then there were a lot of cities occupied on the far backs. Well, not counting during the First Republic.

    The flags are interesting as the flag used for Poland is the Russian naval cross with the polish arms in the canton.

    As for scandinavia i can see the Danish and Swedish flags but can't tell which one the third flag is to represent. I'm assuming Norway?

    That Poland flag is the flag of Congress Poland.

    Yeah, the saltire was one of the proposed Norwegian flags.

    The map suggests that Sweden would hold Finnish Lappland.

    Can you link? I haven't heard of Borderpool before. Also, this reminds me that we do need to get someone to go through the various documents and maps the CIA released. Maybe also make a thread about borders and treaties decided with incorrect maps.

    Kinda, sorta. The internal boundaries are important.

    Ahhh yes, I see where it says Lapland. Maybe referring to Laponia the province, rather than the Lapps as inhibiting the area as we sometimes see in maps on indigenous peoples? And I would say it is Norrland here. As it is still used to refer to a Swedish region, the Wikipedia page doesn't have the appropriate map, though Svealand, Österland, and others do. Actually a bit odd I can't seem to read the word Denmark on here. Tough luck for Lithuania, as well.

    I like this, but if you revise it, you should include all current and former members of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization, most of which you have shown already.

    I just saw this in the Map Thread and thought it worth showing here. It's apparently the aim of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party - "Natural Syria".
