"We've regained Haishenwei."
"At what cost?"
"A Korean Liaodong."

Japanese Liaodong*

The relations between China and Japan seem... interesting, the infobox seems to imply the currenty dynasty was instaured with some japanese help, not sure how that would be accepted in china, and there still seem to be relatively cordial relations as observer in that pacific organisation despite Japan owning quite a bit of china
 
Excellent work(s) as always! How much of the western Rhineland consists of French speakers? Or are they all bilingual in some way?
Is the Chia dynasty fictional or is it based off of someone OTL? Is their Secretariat a relative of the emperor as their family name suggests?
How do roads/driving in the orange countries work?
Why is the Philippines in the orange region? Did it become a British colony after the Spanish left?

If they were a British colony, they'd drive on the left... like all other 'civilised' peoples imo
 
What would the following people be up to?:
Caitlyn Jenner
John Kerry
Antony Blinken
James Taylor
Paula Deen
Ann Rule
And for historical figures:
Salmon P. Chase
Richard Nixon
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Theodore Roosevelt
Daniel Webster
Franklin Pierce
 
Again, simply excellent, especially with the attention to detail! Hopefully the other provinces aren't as intense. Interesting to see that the Bushes have gone in a more business-y direction. Not too mention that the Civic Union party is supported by the current and previous PM.
  • I'm surprised to see that, throughout all of that mess, there weren't calls to dissolve the government altogether? How did MB weather through the lawsuits, in particaular the Tories-Metropolitan coalition? How did the coalition still have around the same amount of MLAs? Why was turnout so low?
  • Interesting to see that the British Empire still has really broad powers. Have there been more instances of this sort of overreach (if they would call it that) across the Empire?
  • Has denial of climate change been replaced by "Well, it is a thing, but there's not much we can do about it anyway"? In the same way, is Spanish Socialism the ITL version of Communism
  • How does the MB government have power over a reservoir in Adirondack? Is it because they have some sort of "special status", since they have the capital? Do they have other such extraterritorial properties?
 
How does the healthcare system work in New England? I'm assuming that universal healthcare isn't as widespread of a thing ITTL compared to OTL.

How much is a pound worth ITTL compared to OTL?

I'm assuming SOE-SOF is roughly equivalent to the Nordic Green Left.

I'm assuming dual-track election is an ATL term for Mixed-Member-Majoritarian, MMP etc.
What does the Maine party want?
I assume a separate province of Maine.

Daniel Webster was the first Prime Minister of New England. As for Theodore Roosevelt:
Theodore "The Butcher" Roosevelt is remembered for the Yucatan War, and his legacy is seen as a great stain on America for his numerous failures.

I'll answer all outstanding questions tomorrow! Sorry for not answering them sooner, I've been busier than usual...
This is beautiful, as always!
  • I noticed that Massachusetts Bay's Tories are considerably to the right of the federal Conservatives. I wonder why. Is it because they have been in opposition for over two decades, and decided that if they were to win an election, they should not attempt to look like the Civic Union, but instead pursue a course of "clear blue water"?
  • I also noticed that the Boston Globe editorial board endorsed the Metropolitans, but refused to endorse their leader in his riding. Is that because they support the Metropolitans, but oppose their leader?
