    THE LITHUANIAN PROBLEM
    by Marian Świechowski
    [​IMG]
    Basically a proposed solution to the issue of Polish-Lithuanian borders, especially with the crisis of Kaunas/Kovno. French diplomacy really recieved a blunder there because while supporting Poland, there was a real fear that it would push Lithuania in the arms of Germany, if not Bolshevik Russia.
    A common mentioned "solution" in 1923 was that Poland could integrated Lithuania as a whole into a new federation, on which Lithuania would be dominated but allowed a greater territory involving much of NW Poland.

    (The picture doesn't seems to load correctly, so I put a link in the title)

    The text basically say that while Lithuania really wants to unilateraly impose its territorial hegemony, (sic.) then Poland would be ready to integrate Lithuania in a new Polish-Lithuanian federal state (Red stripes over Yellow and white)
    Now, if Lithuanians are still bent against Poland and favoring Germany, that would be their choice (if irrational) and they would be let as a client state of Germany is they want so, but only based on "ethnographic Lithuania" (blue stripes). Poland would even let some territories outside agreed 1920 border in exchange of Kaunas/Kowno.

    That tentacle into Lithuanian territory to take that small enclave of Polish speakers around Kėdainiai is cancer and if I ever see it in any AH.com map or timeline, I will throw cold cepelinai at the windows of the perpetrator.

    This isn't as much as a proposal but rather something which actually existed for like almost ten years. These are the PRoC's territorial subdivisions in 1949, and they mostly stayed like this until the late 1950s. Provinces and autonomous regions are in blue, territories in pink, separate municipalities in red. Since there are proposals to divide the bigger Chinese provinces even today, this is something one could easily draw inspiration from. Here is a list with all the data on them, including their abolition dates.

    If I remember correctly the United States attempted to buy the island to launch bombers capable of carrying atom bombs in the event of a Soviet attack

    Apart from a closer base to European Russia (flying through the North Pole saves a lot of time) a vaste land full of natural resources the US could exploit, such as oil, fishing rights, coal etc...

    Why is Qamdo territory labelled in Blue though?

    After taking a quick look at the Wikipedia article again, it differentiates between territories (Qamdo) and "administrative territories", the ones in pink. What's also interesting is that there seems to have been an arbitrary distinction between Autonomous Regions (aka Inner Mongolia) and just plain Regions (Tibet). It just seems like the early PRoC wasn't very consistent when it came to subdivisions.

    Okay. I see.

    The distinction between Autonomous Regions and just plain Regions I can understand since Tibet was conquered after the founding of the PRC and was being incorporated.

    A subcontinent for the price of a single Iowa class battleship? That sounds like a great deal, honestly.

    Originally the proposal, from what I could find, included Parma and Modena; the creation of a Kingdom of Central Italia with Tuscany and Papal state without Rome and the maintain of the Two Sicilies Kingdom under a moral confederal authority from Papal Rome.

    The ratification of the treaty didn't mentioned what was to happen to the duchies and central Italy, probably to keep enough manoeuvre for both French and Sardinian diplomacy.
