    Alright, it occurs to me just now that there are 36 states, and not 38. Will edit the map later, gonna finish up the flags

    Oh, shit, meant to be New Mexico. I'll fix that.

    Edit: Fixed now, thank you!

    Oh, thanks! I just kinda went "Oh hey there are big mountains here, I'll use those!" Glad to hear that it worked, though. Seeing that the American System appears to be winning, expect to see a box on the Ducal families soon!

    Possible WIP, I guess. I don't really like using the sandbox, so the final product may look different

    Alright, as a general update: I'm not going to do the "Ducal families" thing yet; I might eventually but working with the sandbox isn't the most fun thing for me, so I'll work on it later.
    That being said, I am working on something that is both unrealistic but kinda interesting, so have fun with that!

    Nice! Is the "Equality Amendment" similar to the OTL's ERA or is it most similar to the reconstruction amendments, or both?

    A mixture of both. It begins its lifespan as a conglomeration of the Reconstruction Amendments, but in light of increasing progressivism in the twentieth century, it gets new clauses which make it something akin to the proposed Equal Rights Amendment.

    oh, there's an error in the article. The last sentence reads "Which would grant grant to said freed slaves..."
    yeah that's supposed to read "would grant citizenship," whoops

    It’s shows Indiana as a state on the map but not on the list or the flag photo...

    Welp, time to do the things again. Thank you for pointing it out btw!
    EDIT: More painful than I expected, but both should be fixed now.

    Still not the most sure, but here's a rough idea of what I have so far:
    Canada:
    Similar to OTL, except it has Alaska and the so-called "British Partition" of Louisiana
    Mexico:
    Has been independent longer than OTL, mostly due to Napoleonic-based nationalism. Mexico is also a bit more friendly towards Natives, and said Natives often live on government-protected "communes" (think US Reservations that were actually designed to be nice towards Natives). It's most likely a subscriber to Post-Napoleonic Democratic Thought (something I should go over sooner or later), but I might decide for it to be Hamiltonian Democratic Thought in the future - not 100% sure.
