    These Fair Shores: The Commonwealth of New England

    Ah! I saw the phrase early on in Australia’s Wikipedia article above. I myself assumed the phrase was the dominions who helped initially start this modern phase of the empire, but if that is what it is, certainly I am interested in that list as well!

    These Fair Shores: The Commonwealth of New England

    What are the initial "Constituent Dominions"?

    Proposals and War Aims That Didn't Happen Map Thread

    How convenient for the Dutchman's proposal the Netherlands isn't divvied up at all. :p

    Look to the West Volume VIII: The Bear and the Basilisk

    I admit, having once nerded out and given American confederations a representative color each based on their flag colors and/or a historical connection, seeing Panimaha continue the trend with a dark green I suppose can be associated with Great Plains/Canadian Prairie sagebrush or Canadian taiga...

    Fictional U.S. state names?

    Kanawha was quite popular, but the name West Virginia won out from a combo of affection for the home state and being very initially the unionist government claiming the whole of the state.

    Look to the West Volume VIII: The Bear and the Basilisk

    The book is published in 1988 so it’s just before the Sunrise War.

    Effect of changed city names?

    Funnily enough it would've been Remora and thus "Remoran Empire", though Remore as the inevitable anglicization seems a bit odd. Maybe we'd be used to it as we are Rome. Chicago's original settlement was a cluster of families tending to the soldiers of Fort Dearborn before the town was formally...

    Look to the West Volume VIII: The Bear and the Basilisk

    I think the last time we got word of the Moronites was that they had just got settled into Tierra del Fuego. Where else were they spoken of?

    Canada development under French Rule

    Thank you to both of you, that is fascinating. This is intriguing and amusing for a "history doesn't repeat but it does rhyme" sense. If Britain did push to Illinois and essentially the Mississippi River at one point I find it amusing that's what they nabbed to in 1763 and thus what the...

    Canada development under French Rule

    @Viriato What were the exact demands of Britain in territorial terms in text form? I never knew they even did so pre-war, though I believe it, it’s definitely not surprising.

    PC: Prince Frederick's Plan for Henry, Duke of Cumberland = No ARW?

    I never knew this. Fascinating. Were any other titles mentioned beyond "Duke of Virginia"? I ask because this is legitimately the first time I heard of any American noble title even proposed in any capacity.

    USA Buys Texas to the Colorado River

    It's why I mentioned the talk on the potential land purchases of the 1830s for Texas and above the 37th parallel. Mexico was actually willing to hear that out but was partly dissuaded by the ambassador (Butler)'s rudeness, partly by British creditors pressuring them by not needing the...

    USA Buys Texas to the Colorado River

    Amazingly, five million dollars was the most common price in all the negotiations - it was the most common and median price discussed in 1804-1807 (when they were trying to buy the Floridas alongside talking about Louisiana's western border), was the amount paid for the Floridas in the OTL...

    Look to the West Volume VIII: The Bear and the Basilisk

    You can just imagine a Scot and an Englishman finding each other waving their flags coming across one another, and then a moment of uncomfortable chuckling then an "eeeeh...." before silently shuffling the other way.

    Canada development under French Rule

    OP asks Say France manages to retain lower and upper Canada. I'm assuming this is post-French and Indian War. Britain still takes over all the Maritimes and Newfoundland, the Acadian Upheaval still happens, and New England Planters still move into Nova Scotia. The French threat to the colonists...

    USA Buys Texas to the Colorado River

    From 1804-1807 (pgs 114-115), 1818-1819 (pgs 136-137), and as late as 1825-1829, the USA attempted to buy Texas north of the Colorado River-in-Texas from mouth to source (at the 103rd meridian, Texas's OTL western border) and then a straight line north to the "highlands" (watershed border, IE...

    Carolina and Virginia Alternate Names

    South Carolina and North Carolina were very briefly known as Clarendon and Albemarle provinces when they were united, but the North/South designation understandably was far more common and became official when they formally split up. Virginia is much harder. The entire eastern seaboard was...

    WI/AHC : Stable, long lasting Rome.

    On the one hand, I agree with regards to a hegemonic ethnic group and language. On the other, Roman culture and identity was so prevalent and successfully assimilationist the Greeks found themselves calling themselves "Roman" as much as the actual ethnic Latins/Romans in Italy and various...

    WI French capital isn't Paris

    I’ll cop/apologize to poor wording. The Duchy of France just being a modern version name of “Francia/of the Franks”, which if I remember off the top of my head was roughly equivalent to Neustria anyway - colloquial terminology and all that.
