Proposals and War Aims That Didn't Happen Map Thread

EAU: One of the Putin administration’s most successful projects has been the formation of the Eurasian Economic Union, which Putin aims to expand into a competitor to the European Union, with a similar structure. In June of 2016 during a visit to China, he suggested that the Union could eventually encompass all of the post-Soviet states plus Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and Mongolia. By April of 2018 he had also sent invitations to Turkey and Syria. It appears that Putin’s goal here is to consolidate Russia’s allies in Eurasia under a single organisation in order the strengthen ties between them. It should be noted that for this to work, several nations would have to be pulled out of the Western Bloc.

Looks like this should be updated to include Albania and North Macedonia too.

That’s a good question. As some were upset at the size of Texas at the time, I could see it being its own state (sort of a rump Rio Grande Republic, in that it’s a republican government and would probably be called Rio Grande). More interesting is whether they’d go ahead with the plan to split California (including Baja, of course), because everyone was upset at how big it was OTL.

Where's that map from?
 
Where's that map from?
It's from the excellent book Lost States: True Stories of Texlahoma, Transylvania, and Other States that Never Made It, by Michael J. Trinklein. It's got a bunch of maps and brief descriptions of states that were proposed but never came to fruition. It's pretty interesting, and was my first introduction to alternate history.

Same. I got that book in like 4th grade.

I'm curious about why they wouldn't just divide California directly along the 36-30 line, given that the debate over whether California would be a free state or a slave state was the main reason for people calling for it to be divided (at least to my knowledge).

To my knowledge that was about the plan originally, though maybe some plans deviated from that?

I think it's based on the counties that were almost entirely below 36-30...

Imagine one second, Moscow (or any other large soviet city, Moscow was supposed to be transformed into a lake but it's kinda unlikely, but you can replace it with Stalingrad or Leningrad)
What about a non-Soviet city?

The Pabst Plan (German: Neue deutsche Stadt Warschau, "New German city of Warsaw") was a Nazi German urban plan to reconstruct the city of Warsaw as a Nazi model city. Named after its creator Friedrich Pabst, the Nazis' "Chief Architect for Warsaw", the plan assumed that Warsaw, the historical capital of Poland and a city of 1.5 million inhabitants, would be completely destroyed and rebuilt as a small German town of not more than 130,000 inhabitants.

I wonder if they have anything on Nevada
 
Since we seem to be on a Nazi kick right now, may I add the Fuhrermuseum?

The Führermuseum was an unrealized art museum within a cultural complex planned by Adolf Hitler for his hometown, the Austrian city of Linz, near his birthplace of Braunau. Its purpose was to display a selection of the art bought, confiscated or stolen by the Nazis from throughout Europe during World War II. The cultural district was to be part of an overall plan to recreate Linz, turning it into a cultural capital of Nazi Germany and one of the greatest art centers of Europe, overshadowing Vienna, for which Hitler had a personal distaste. He wanted to make the city more beautiful than Budapest, so it would be the most beautiful on the Danube River, as well as an industrial powerhouse and a hub of trade; the museum was planned to be one of the greatest in Europe
 
Can someone make a WorldA of this proposal? It was a proposal to make an autonomous canton in the mountainous regions of northern Greece, populated by a large proportion of Aromanians, a people living in northern Greece and Northern Macedonia who speak Aromanian, a dialect of Romanian.

Here we have Hitler's plan for the reconstruction of Berlin into a grand capital for his Thousand-Year Reich. Designed largely by Albert Speer, it would've featured the following, among many others:
* The Volkshalle- Probably the most famous and the centerpiece of the whole project, the Volkshalle was to be a massive domed amphitheater capable of seating 180,000 people at a time. At 290 meters (950 ft) tall, it would've been bigger than the Great Pyramid of Giza, and would have become host to its own microclimate just from the people inside breathing.
* A triumphal arc measuring 117 meters (383 ft) high and 170 meters (557 ft) wide, which would have been erected after World War II and would have included the names of all Germans who had fallen in past wars.
* Massive new systems of roads, autobahns, and railways. Berlin was to be reorganized along a central 5km (3 mi) boulevard known as the Prachtallee, or Victory Avenue.
* The former Anhalter Bahnhof made into a public swimming pool.

A few of the goals of the project, like widening Charlottenburger Chaussee and placing the Berlin victory column in the center, have stuck around to the present day.

Outside Berlin, a few other buildings the Nazis planned were:
* Deutsches Stadion- A massive stadium in Nuremberg, able to seat 405,000 people at a time. It was going to be host to all Olympic games for the rest of history had the Nazis won.
* The Museum to the Extinct Race- The Jewish Museum in Prague was to be reorganized and basically used as a propaganda tool to teach future generations a distorted view of the Jewish people and how the Nazis "freed" Europe from them.
Ahhh yes, that museum. I remember reading in a book about it and how they described- Well, you know how thousands of people died in the Holocaust from decapitation? Yah, they took the healthiest people (as in those not starving) in camps and would sometimes decapitate them so they had skulls for the museums, in which they could use as examples of their phrenology nose and ears base pseudo science. I do have to wonder about why there seems to be big slops on both sides of the road. And just look at those crane said in the distance..l
 
So since Bougainville had that referendum I was doing some reading on the history of PNG and discovered that France actually tried to colonize it as "New France"! It went horribly.

A French PNG would be really interesting if someone (who is much better than me) could do a TL about it. I wonder if New Caledonia, and even the New Hebrides might be attached to it, along with some other French islands in the pacific.
