  1. AHC: have Iceland & the Faroes be as British as the Shetlands with a POD after 1066

    Look at that map of Europe. Seems obvious, doesn't it? Of course all the islands in the North West should be one country*. So, your challenge is to have the Faroes and Iceland be considered a natural part of the UK (or whatever the state holding all or most of the British Isles calls itself)...
  2. Cities that wouldn't exist if borders were different.

    Which cities would either not exist or not be anywhere near as big as in OTL if borders hadn't ended up where they did? Hong Kong & Shenzhen are a pair of very clear examples. Gothenburg, maybe? San Diego & Tijuana?

    Quick intro from Wikipedia: What if Gustav III's coup either fails or doesn't happen? The first option would result in the king under arrest, not sure how that would work at all. The second option would be based on the king not finding enough support in the right places to go ahead with the...
