    Hmm, I may drop the Conch Republic part, was truly just an homage. But I’m struggling on calling it anything but the Keys, considering the only ppl that live in that area would be on the Keys themselves. None of the metropolitan areas of OTL South Florida fall within the continental territory it controls, except perhaps portions of Homestead, FL, itself one of the more remote regions of Miami-Dade County.

    Any suggestions for names other than The Keys?

    Yeah, I'm not sure either. "The Keys" is probably fine, just a bit unusual. Also, is the Twin Rivers a religious state?

    Haven’t thought through too many of the details for either the Twins Rivers or Missouri. The Enlightened in their names comes from neighboring Riviera, which I’ve thought through a bit. The idea is that Riviera is established by TTLs Aaron Burr, who makes it his own little country. The republic is the first to ensure the right to vote to women, etc. Burr makes the realm have a needlessly descriptive name by sticking ‘Enlightened’ in there. I imagined Twin Rivers and Missouri being colonized in part by Rivierans, adopting similar names.

    I love the idea of Twin Rivers being a religious state

    Anyone with expertise making flags that would like to lend a hand, feel free! Is there anything anyone would like to see covered going forward?

    I will admit that most of this (essentially the Early Life and Revolution sections) were taken straight from his wiki. Kept it on to keep the aesthetic alongside the infobox.

    George I (Mathews) of Georgia was the controversial first Lord-Governor of Georgia. Much like his compatriot, George I (Clinton) of New York, Mathews reign came to be known for his outspoken expansionism. It would ultimately cost him his life.

    Hey, just so you know, you have Upper and Lower Canada swapped. Like Upper and Lower Egypt with the Nile, they're named based on the direction of flow of the St. Lawrence, so Upper Canada is in fact OTL [southern] Ontario and Lower Canada is [southern] Quebec.

    Edit: Whoops, somebody already brought that up.

    D'Oh!!! Thought I had fixed that already! I've updated the main map on the first page and will update above concurrently.

    Love this.

    I'd be interested in hearing more about Connecticut--I think northward-expanding Connecticut is a bit underrated.

    Slight correction to the timeline: the first Transylvanian lordship election states 1798, however it should be read as 1796.

    Currently working on the 1812 New York lordship election following George Clinton's death, a map of Transylvania's present day counties and major roads (the Lord-Governor's Passing). Will try and get something on Connecticut done. I've found that content is generally easy to work on, but I also have finals coming up so we'll see how things shape out.

    A map representing the 1971 lordship election in Georgia:

    2001 lordship election.png

    Carter won the election by unexpectedly uniting most of the opposition parties into a coalition. This stunned the Executor Party. Carter himself is a member of the Liberal Party. The New Georgia Coalition calls for modernizing the state by implementing a major infrastructure program, along with electoral reform to ease the disenfranchisement of afrogeorgians throughout the realm.

    He beat Herman Talmadge, who secured the nomination of the Executor Party. The Executor Party has typically held government, occasionally with supply from a minor party in the legislature. However, they did not expect Carter's New Georgia Coalition in the face of the Harold I resignation and scandals.

    Elected Lord-Governor: James I Carter (New Georgia Coalition)

    As you can see from the map below, Georgia's roads are not up to par with Transylvania's. Lord-Governor James I and the New Georgia Coalition have done their best to up the infrastructure spending, but the coalition has struggled to control the legislature consistently during James reign. Highways are being built at a significant pace, and relations with the Creek & Cherokee Confederacy and East Florida has reached all time highs, meaning movement between them and Georgia has grown.

    I'm thinking that aside from a few wars in the 19th Century, the UAR spends the 20th century largely more and more like the modern EU in certain respects. In contrast, Europe descends into madness wars throughout much of the 20th century. By 2019, Europe has stabilized, but the 20th century see's mass migration from Europe to the various countries in the Americas. I'm using this to justify larger populations across certain realms.

    Another concept I'm toying with is each realm being able to decide whether to take larger number of immigrants, etc.

    Oh and I'm working on a map of Saybrook. Do y'all have any requests?

    The UAR has always come off like a slightly more centralized democratic HRE to me. It acts like one nation at times, but also has a lot of internal differences.

    As for Europe, I like the idea of it falling into chaos, I just have to wonder why it falls into chaos and what American nations Europeans migrate to, or for that matter what other American nations look like ITTL.

    Also, can I just say that this TL is awesome? The graphics are great, the scenario is completely unique, and the bizarre differences from OTL are really cool. You really amped up elective monarchism and created a very original alternate US as a consequence, and I love how this TL isn't just a Hamilton Plan scenario, and almost goes the opposite route by making the UAR very decentralized and politically diverse.
