I'm honestly still trying to figure why they'd claim Slovakia, but not Sicily.
A map of the United States of Poland, a political concept conceived in 1917 by Ignacy Jan Paderewski - and involved the creation of a Polish federation with equality guaranteed to all ethnicities and religions. It would have been divided into 4 regions: the Kingdoms of Poland (red), Lithuania (blue), Polesie (green), and Galicia (yellow), with a president reigning as the monarch of all four.
This proposal for a divided California just hit the news. It's similar to Jefferson in that it's ultimately a bid for political representation.
Why not the Czech republic? Why anything on that map.
I think the funny part about it is that both states would've voted Democrat in 2016.
(also, could they have picked a more ugly border?)
Yeah, that's totally not an attempt at gerrymandering the border. Neither geography nor urban influence circles (city + hinterland) suggests that border.
Does anyone have a good map showing the Treaty of Tordesillas line in full?
Pff, representation. I don't see any reason to let people in the gold regions have the right to vote.
Well, I can understand why the interior counties would want to chart their own course given California's recent history. Every man should have the right to voice his opinion, and the urban-rural divide has created a lot of problems when it comes to this. On the other hand, I can agree with you in that I would try to package the proposal to appear as more of a solution to the state's problems than a gerrymandering "duct tape fix".
Seconded. It'd be a nice to have a worlda for that!
i tried making one once, but it was a pretty unprofessional one just using available Worlda longitude lines. i don't think i saved it but i could whip one up if y'all want.
This doesn't actually fix the rural/urban divide anyway, because "New California" would still be dominated by coastal urban centers, particularly San Jose and San Diego. Also: "New California" is a ridiculous name.
This is a Chat topic, discuss it in the thread there. This thread is for history, not contemporary politics.
Map of the French-backed Republic of Independent Guyana:
A part of the so-called Cantino planisphere (1502) highlighting the Tordesillas line. Newfoundland and Greenland are shown as possessions of the King of Portugal.
In Wiki you can actually find a huge version of the Cantino planisphere that you can easily read (if you're familiar with paleography and 16th century Portuguese). It's quite interesting to see how present day toponymy can be traced back to these first navigations.
Conversions of the last three into WorldA
The proposed division and occupation of Japan by the allies after World War II. The Soviets would occupy Hokkaido and Tōhoku, American would occupy most of Honshu, the British would occupy Chūgoku and Kyushu, and the Republic of China would occupy Shikoku.
Tokyo would be a multinational occupation zone and Osaka would be jointly administrated by Britain and the RoC.
The division of the United States as proposed in the 1864 map Our Country as Traitors and Tyrants would have it.
This proposed that, through intervention from Britain and France, the Confederacy would gain independence and greater land, while the Union would be fractured into three nations: the Pacific States, the Interior States, and the Atlantic States.
Was there any plan for the multinational occupation zone and Osaka if/when Communist China kicks the ROC off the mainland during the Chinese Civil War?
Since we didn't get this division, I assume it became moot right?
