Are those names actually German country names? Or were they named later on in history, like the byzantines wereHere is a VT-BAM of the Margraviates of Baden-Durlach and Baden-Baden shortly before their reunification in 1771.
I want to add further historical minor principalities in South-West Germany.
Are here some people motivated to create a common Holy-Roman-VTBAM ??

As far as I know, these names where actually used at that time.
The title margrave was used, because it was the highest title of the ruling monarch.
Of course each of these two margraviates consisted of multiple baronies and other smaller territories... which had different local rules and customs.
Here is some further progress for a 1789 map ... The map in the background (France and Italy) is from @tungsterismapping and @Crazy Boris . I need to do some cleaning in cases where borders don't overlap exactly. (For example some exclaves in the South near the Rhine River)
Fun fact ... A few villages in South Germany where actually territory of the Knights of St. John and the Teutonic Order ....
Also @Crazy Boris which colors whould you recommend for minor bishoprics, independent monasteries, and minor free cities not mentioned in THICC 3.3 ?

This whole thing is a collaborative project for this exact reason. Big projects like this can be hard. So it's perfectly fine.I'm not really sure weather I fill finish the HRE....
Several regions won't have the accuracy of South-West Germany, where I have very exact maps.
So this is more a long term project depending on my motivation.
