    More Zombies, this time ZekSora's What Remains. Yet again, I'm gonna wait for more content before publishing the map officially, but for now it's up to date with all available material.

    North Idaho is best Idaho

    ~~~~~~

    Do you ever think of a scenario that you think will be really cool but then you start thinking about it and it devolves into a enormously depressing unintentional famine/genocide/nuclear holocaust?

    Yeah. Me too. Here's an ISOT of all Isolate Languages and their surrounding (just the buildings and tech, not the people who don't speak the languages) communities to a Virgin Earth. I'm hesitant to continue this because of the nuclear hellfire of Korea, the starvation of the isolated abandoned communities, and the sad final days of Cristina Calderon, an 89 year old woman and the final speaker of the Yaghan Language, left alone on Navarino Island. I have no idea if the Mapuche would be able to reach her in time. Yeah, this was a lot better in my head.

    Maybe 200 years is enough time for everyone to recover and forget about how horrible the initial aftermath will be? Hopefully :'(.

    Why is Deseret that big?

    Edited, fixed

    Why?

    Why not Mexico? It can expand aswell.

    Seriously, what's wrong with Greater Alaska?

    Because it expanded from Utah, taking some of the smaller states around it.

    It's more likely Utah would go on it's own rather than making a four corners union.

    Ay! I'm glad someone's enjoying this. I've got a WorldA with some half-baked sketches on it for this if you want them—just PM me.

    1.) With all due respect, "New York Federation" doesn't make sense as a name. New York can be the most powerful state, but I just don't think the name really rings.

    2.) Mexico would probably want the southwest more than Florida.

    3.) Greater Alaska is fine, I just didn't see it.

    1. Ok. But it's either something involving New York or New England in the name.
    2. They found it too hard to invade deseret, California or Texas plus it's a nice trading port.
    3. But it's Alasla and it's greater. Yukon does not have much influence

    Ok but they are right next to California which has expanded into Nevada and Hawaii and the Balkanisation brought dreams of deseret back into the public consiousness.

    More likely, they'll be sorrowful over the fact that the nation has fallen apart. That, or they would - as said earlier - go on there own as just Utah. With Colorado also doing it's own thing, and whatever New Mexico and Arizona wish to do.

    They are right next to an expansionist superpower!

    So what's your point? California doesn't have much of a reason to expand into Utah, and Utah doesn't have a reason to expand.

    And I just realized something. Mexico annexes Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. How can they annex something that far away when they can barely hold on to themselves?

    I know. But I doubt they'll go on the expansionist path in this scenario.
