A proposal to move the population of Hong Kong to North Ireland:
that has a LOT of potential for AH stories.....
I would like to add to this a similar proposal by right-wing thinktank the Adam Smith Institute:
The architect of this proposal in an interview with a presumably Hong Kong TV channel. The subtitle says "Britons have a moral responsibility towards Hongkongers." As to why exactly upper-middle class Hong Kong expats would want to move to Northern Ireland at the height of the Troubles, or leave for the most desolate parts of Scotland, I have no clue.
This just gets better and better.
I doubt breaking your own allies apart is a good idea...
Well, Germany was broken up into 4 anyway following the end of WWII. Presumably under this plan there would be an eventual attempt to unite the occupation zones into a West Germany analogue that also included the Western bits of Austria.
What's with the weird internal borders in the USSR, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Prussia, France, Spain and the UK?
That Croatia is absolutely hideous.
Which allies? If you are referring to Basque country, wales, scotland etc that seems more like geographical areas than intended states much as how "Ostpolen" is clearly just a region within the USSR under this plan.
Made more difficult by the French occupation zone in Germany completely separating the American occupation zone in Germany from the British zone in Germany. IOTL it was the Americans and British who were first amenable to the formation of a West German state and helped set the stage for it with Bizonia. It was later that the French joined in to form Trizonia which became a precusor element to West Germany.
Plus here it seems that Roosevelt intended for the occupation zones to spin off a number of states, so that from the 4 occupation zones would come 7 separate states.
My attempts to make a world of this map, one in the classic NUCS colour scheme and one with NUCS mixed with SUCK
Some state borders that never were
well here’s a borderpool patch waiting to happen!!
Chetnik leader Stevan Moljević's plans for a post-WW2 Yugoslavia, where Croatia is severely 'punished for its actions' and both Serbia & Slovenia get to fulfil their nationalist territorial dreams
...and some worlda patches for it
I have never seen some of those proposed state borders @Crazy Boris
Heh, I wouldn't mind this lol. Though as I see it that's probably what he would have demanded, to still get a lot - you know, kinda when you try to sell sumn and give the first price as larger than you want, then the buyer will reduce it to the price you actually want (or get more than expected, hehe)
I wonder how long it would last till Uncle Joe turns it into a "People's Democracy".
But i think it's possible if the Chetniks alongside the Bosnians/Croatians somehow managed to crush the Yugoslav Partisans.
Do you really think replacing crazy Croat nationalists with crazy Serb nationalists would turn out at all alright? Like come on, you're the "[r]esident Serb expert" here, you know what happens when 20th century Yugoslavs get nationalistic.
That's an gross... oversimplification of things. At that point some future conflict was an inevitability (and still is, if anyone tells you otherwise, they're wearing rose-tinted glasses and get high of wishful thinking). And if conflict is inevitable, at least you can hope that your side wins tbh
