    Hello everyone, this is my first post on the site. I am curious what would be the ramifications if the English colonies became an independent nation say a century earlier than in OTL. Comments concerning how improbable the scenario is and comments containing even more improbable explanations on how it could happen are both welcome.

    I have a hard time imagining its plausibility, and the oft-toyed with "exilic Britain" scenario is implausible as no king would want to flee to their colonies, but assuming it happens, I can't imagine the proto-US would amount to much.

    Maybe a theocratic state with an Utopian approach and Hebrew as a common language.
