Yep. Their the type of minor fringe party that got 'uplifted' by scandal into the chamber.
My masterpiece ...
What is the nation inbetween what i presume to be Deseret and Texas
Oh, shoot. that meant to be a part of Sonora. Oops
Just reposting this - it would be good to start gathering some basic info about each nation.
Lemme find it.
Here we are:
Results of Last Nights elections:
Outer banks-Henderson --- Alliance Gain
Fort Niagara --- Alliance Gain
Shenandoah-Charlottesville ---Coalition Gain
Marion—Findlay --- Coalition Hold
Méridien --- Coalition Hold
Norfolk West—Portsmouth --- Alliance Hold
I would write more, but I am graduating soon and Job Applications has robbed my typical time allotment for this timeline. So I am once again on hold for a while.
My school schedule has also not allowed a lot of time for doing stuff like this. But hey, good luck on your applications!
Would anyone be opposed if I wrote a timeline centered around this world? Like an in-depth, deeper look at what we've already seen written. I have created a test thread for information gathering and for throwing ideas around. I don't want this to be a competitive or an alternate project, as I'd basically like to use the map and world created here as the backdrop for this timeline. Is that cool with everybody?
Well somebody needs to start working on this again.
Maybe gin up interest with an election this year (after all, Canada's having an election this year, and the U.S. the next, so might as well...)
My idea was to pound out a timeline in time for the Canadian election, and use that as the launch point for a continuation thread.
Couldn't we just use this worldfor the continuation thread, instead of creating a spinoff TL that changes lots of the canon we already have.
So, the next step for this project is the country info-box. I'll get around to making an infobox after I return from WV on Sunday. Until then, here is the information for it:

Sounds about right-ish (though maybe change the traffic direction from right to left like the rest of the Commonwealth realms)
Wouldn't Spanish be an official language? And does the Commonwealth have a Supreme Court whose Chief Justice can be listed with the Prime Minister?
Good questions - Spanish indeed probably should be an official recognized language due to Florida, and I don't believe the Supreme Court has been brought up yet. If anyone has any suggestions for court justices, I'd love to hear them!
Ruth Bader Ginsburg has to be there
Speaking as a conservative Republican who disagrees with a lot of her rulings, I can say with certainty that RBG is a true American badass. She definitely should have a slot.
I was thinking of styling the Supreme Court after OTL Canada’s, which IIRC has age limits? That *might* interfere with RBG’s seat, not sure. I’ll put together a list of potential names later tonight.
I should add that I’ll be in WV with limited access to WiFi for three days. So if I don’t get a list up for any reason, feel free to start without me.
Separate names with a comma.
