    As I've said before, I'm not going to exercise my veto power unless absolutely necessary, but I have some ideas for Hawaii. I feel it's too big a region to fit into the Pacific Federation because of the high population, economic power, and history. I'd think in this universe they'd probably be their own nation. Plus their geographic position has them a bit far off from the other islands of the Federation if I recall correctly (I could be wrong here).

    What if we had Hawaii as an independent nation with the Hawaiian monarchy still intact? Possibly within the British sphere of influence?

    That would be interesting, close allies to the pacific federation, america and probably Aoteroa and New Wessex (mainly due to proximity).

    What do you guys think the status of worldwide international organizations would be ittl? Obviously with a German Victory and no President Wilson there is no Leauge of nations and no Second Great War will also mean there would be no United Nations. Is there just going to be regoinal alliances?

    Centre [Government Party] 226/710 in Reichstag
    Centre-Right (Christan Democracy, Liberal Conservatism)

    A Major Party in the Reichstag since the 1870s. A supporter of European co-operation and further federalism within Mittleropua as well as co-operation with the Latin Union. Won power in 2011 after the SDP became unpopular after being in power for 12 years.

    The oldest operating party in Germany. The SDP was formed in 1863. Party advocates for Social Democracy and similar ideas. Party is divided about European co-operation and usually avoids any strong policy about Europe. Has slowly been gaining seats since 2014 however the public isn't too fond to hand power to the SDP after a 12-year term spanning from 1998 to 2011 that is generally looked back on negatively by the public.

    As I've noted a few times now, I think we've more or less fleshed out the skeleton of the worldbuilding and even added some extra meat here and there. The next step is the "official" thread, in which we will continue world building and also begin adjusting to the present, day to day format like the original American Commonwealth thread.

    What we need before this is a country wikibox, complete with a flag, seal, GDP and population statistics, the political leaders, etc, etc. I need this done (I tried but kept screwing it up) because it will be in the first post, which will summarize basically all of the key facts about the ATL America, before we can dive into the actual game. Once this thread is up, feel free to continue infoboxes or write ups on whatever subject you want. The new thread will take over from this one due to the amount of clutter in this thread.

    If anyone can churn such a wikibox out, I'd be immensely grateful. I'll give it another go tomorrow, but even if I succeed I'm positive it'll be scratchy.

    That map is beautiful, and so is the rest of the infobox. I have work and my classes start today so I probably can’t get around to finding the GDP data. The problem I’m seeing ahead of me is that the world map is so different from OTL that I don’t think we’d be able to truly get an accurate figure.

    Yeah that actually has been in the back of mind. We took a totally different course than I intended, but I'm happy with it. Any ideas for a new title? "The American Crown?" Something like that?

    The American Crown sounds cool. "The American Crown: a monarchist America"

    The plan I always used was to just find a reasonable GDP per capita and then just multiply it by the population. Besides no one is going to be too hung up if the GDP of West Sudan or Twswana or Zambezi is wrong.

    What about "Our Cousins Across The Water" for a title?

    My issue with that is that the title presents the UK as a major focus of the scenario when the only main feature should be America.

    Also before a second thread begins how about we have a review of this issue because personally, I've been iffy about the united pacific. We could have an opinion poll about some different options for the pacific.

    That's not a bad idea! I think Hawaii is definitely too much for the federation, but I'm still open to the idea. This is a collaborative effort so I'd love to hear everyone else's opinion on this. I have a friend coming by in a bit, but the game play thread will be up soon. I've already got some ideas for news stories.

    New Caledonia could be Antipodea (due to the french connection, could be apart of the New Hebridies province) as could Vanuatu (though that could go either way with New Wessex as well) if you don't want a United Pacific (though i quiet like the idea of a greater pacific confederation for those islands.
