    There is a Bridge too far and then there is a country too far; this post, however is a planetary orbit too far.

    Kicked for a week.

    It is a shame about the need to use that kinda ugly cross in the middle instead of a Swastika due to those anti-Swastika laws. Speaking of flags, did the US still only have forty eight states when the invasion went on? And did the flag for the United Kingdom change later on? On a side note, it seems that the full name of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Brittany, Normandy, and Calais-Picardy isn't in your stoey thread, though it is on the Munro map. Did the Channel Islands get added to England or Normandy once liberated from the Germans? And more importantly, how long since a thread is last updated or written in by an author do you think it is still polite or allowable to post comments in? I was wondering about posting a comment in When You Wish Upon a Star (the World of Laughter sequel) to ask the person if they would post any of their unfinished notes, but I am unsure if it would be seen as rude.

    I didn't design the cover (hell, I can't draw a straight line with a ruler) but I know the anti-Nazi symbol laws were a major factor. The addition of the Channel provinces was post war event while the Channel Islands retain their unique relationship to the Crown.

    As far as discussing in the thread a lot depends on of the writer is still responding to questions/comments. The AANW thread is still (to me) remarkably active so responses/questions there are fine. You would need to gauge the activity of any other thread to decide the merits of posting in it.

    There's a joke to be made here about Jan Mayen, what with you being a bear and all.

    Spain is so baked it literally drifted a couple hundred miles to the east, apparently.

    Why are Australia states shown separately, but not US states? Also RIP West Africa, Corsica, Portugal, Benelux, and Ecuador. Also, Hawaiian, Gujarat, and West Bengal-NE Indian independence movements appear to have succeeded ITTL. And why are Slovakia and Hawaii yellow?

    This map was definitely made while high.

    Also, is it just me, or is Australasia tilted a bit? Korea and Japan look slightly off, too, but that's probably my imagination.

    presumably, Holland just didn't show up to the mapmaking session and no one knows where they are :p

    i actually hadn't noticed that the Netherlands were missing--what i'd noticed first (after Spain) was that Ecuador is missing, too
