    In Checkerboard France, geography tortures YOU.

    Germany in WW2: Check and mate. King me. France: but that's not how it works. Germany: Losers don't get to define the rules, puppet.

    The French speaking provinces would probably have the strongest economy overall by my estimates:

    When the French Revolution really got going, France got into "rational" and "sensible" stuff a lot. From the pretty good (metric system) to the weird (a new calendar year replacing 1793 with Year One). This is middle of the road - France did eventually replace its provinces with departments, but not with the perfect square grid as seen and proposed here.

    Is there an etymology of these somewhere?

    Chersonesus - From Greek χερσόνησος (chersonesos) meaning "peninsula"; the Lower Peninsula of Michigan
    Assenisipia - From the Assenisipi River, now called the Rock River
    Metropotamia - From Greek μήτηρ (meter, "mother"/"source") + ποταμός (potamos, "river") meaning "mother of rivers"; the sources of the Muskingum, Great Miami, Little Miami, Maumee, Sandusky, Wabash, and Illinois Rivers lie or were expected to lie within the state
    Illinoia - From the Illinois River

    Washington - From George Washington
    Polypotamia - From Greek πολύς (polys, "many") + ποταμός (potamos, "river") meaning "many rivers"; the Wabash, Shawnee, Tennessee, Ohio, Illinois, Mississippi, and Missouri Rivers converge within the state
    Pelisipia - From Pelisipi River, now called the Clinch River, but Jefferson says that this was another name for the Ohio River

    Source: The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Volume 6: May 1781 to March 1784, pg. 581-613

    Edit: Equitasia and other new names lower down are by the artist, alt-reality on DeviantArt, and were not part of Jefferson's proposal
    Equitasia - From Latin equitas meaning "equalness"/"evenness"/"fairness"
