    Combine this with Y Wladfa and you could get some really strange stuff going on in Patagonia - you could make it even stranger if you also have a Kingdom of Araucania & Patagonia in existence too.

    You have a Patagonia, and you have a Patagonia.

    "So what is Patagonia, anyway?"
    "Oh, well its a Native American kingdom ruled by a French lawyer, with significant populations of Welshmen and Basques."
    "...and this is better than South Africa, how?"
    "They aren't Brits trying to kill us."

    Can't forget about the Scots in the Falklands. Someone needs to make a map of the United States of Patagonia.

    Here's a cool article I found today:

    1917: How Germany Hopes To Redraw the Map of Europe

    It includes a pretty detailed description of Germany's aims:

    Courland and Lithunia will be annexed from Russia. As regards Poland, it is possible that we should negotiate with Russia. “In the Balkans, Bulgaria must obtain the whole of the Dobruja and Serbian Montenegro, and parts of Serbia around Nish, so that she would gain access to Hungary. From the remainder of Serbia and Montenegro one State would be formed, possibly under the rule of Prince Mirko (the King of Montenegro’s second son—who went over to the enemy).

    The Wikipedia page on Bulgaria during WWI has two maps showing this. Well, one of them focusing on Serbia. Which is cut in such a way that, if need me, Kosovo and Sanjak could be rather easily sliced off and given to neighbors.

    Don't think this has been done before, but in the lead up to the Suez War, Ben-Gurion had what he described as a "fantastic" plan to reorganize the Middle East. This would see Jordan partitioned between a British-dominated Iraq and Israel (Israel acquiring the West Bank, Iraq taking the rest which is now modern Jordan), Israel annexing southern Lebanon up to the Litani to leave the Maronites as a larger plurality or outright majority in Lebanon (so it could become a Christian Arab state aligned to France), the Suez Canal internationalized and Israel annexing everything east of a line running from El Arish to Abu Ageila to Nakhl (Nekhel fortress) to Sharm el-Sheikh (presumably it would run along the Wadi El Arish from El Arish to Nakhl and thence a straight line to Sharm el-Sheikh). While it sounded like Egypt was to be divested of the entire Sinai peninsula, it wasn't clear if this was part of his plan (perhaps to have everything between the Canal and the new Israeli border placed under international control as part of the Canal Zone):

    Pffft, like anyone in their right mind would actually allow it. It's like begging for a failed state.

    Can you add the modern EEZs to this by chance?

    Not actually a proposal, but the map maker's choice which parts to colorize of a map that depicts (pre-unification) Germany is a bit peculiar.
