  1. Most likely administrative divisions/states/provinces of an un-partitioned India

    In a TL where India is never partitioned, what would its administrative divisions be like? (the territory I mean is modern-day India + Pakistan + Bangladesh; only these three, no Sri Lanka, Maldives, Nepal, etc.), something similar to the present day with some alterations? This topic can be at...

    AHC: A US President from every state
    Threadmarks: OP

    With a divergence/s no earlier than 1796, have every US state in the Union have at least 1 president to their name by January 20th, 2021. EDIT; Bonus points if it's 50.

    WI: Plymouth Colony during the American Revolution

    What if Plymouth Colony, after the dissolution of the Dominion of New England, didn't get absorbed into Massachusetts. Instead, Plymouth asks for a formal charter from the crown, and Plymouth Colony remains separate from Massachusetts throughout the 18th Century. After uneventful for Plymouth...
  4. I Huffman-coded the 50 states

    So the exercise here was to devise a scheme by which each of the states was assigned a binary string, none of them appearing in any other at the beginning, that would minimize the number of bits required to specify the average resident's state (based on the 2010 census). There's a well-known...

    DJ's Redividing thread

    I have this weird hobby where I like to redesign the provinces/states/internal boundaries of countries, and I figured some of you guys may like some of the dumb things I do, so I may as well make them public. I'll start with Canada, as I find the population distribution between the provinces in...

    The most optimal borders for Europe

    Excluding the ethnicities from the discussion, what would the ideal borders for various European countries be? What interests me is having most of Europe as developed as it's possible. What would the optimal borders be? What about natural resources? How much of the land would they need to make...
  9. How plausible are the proposed states of Australia?

    For reasons totally unconnected to a TL that I am totally not currently writing...*eyes dart back and forth*, I am looking into the various proposed states of Australia, as listed here. Even though some of those proposals date back to pre-1900, I put the thread here as Australia became...
  10. How can some of these states be real?

    How can you make some of these states real? Some states look realistic; Puerto Rico and Cuba are possible, some are questionable; “Reagan” seems to be based off the 2011 proposal for South California (I’m doubtful it would be named after Reagan if it were established in 2011 since he was...

    Could there be more states named after presidents.

    So could there be any more states named after presidents? I think the proposals for Lincoln and Jefferson could happen, but are there any other presidents that could get a state named after them? I’ve seen a couple alt maps with a state of Adams and even one with a state of Reagan.
  12. What would the American states look like if the USA annexed Canada in the 1800s.

    It always annoys me when I see a map where America annexes Canada, and Canada somehow keeps the exact same borders from OTL even though there would never be an Oregon territorial dispute, an Alaskan panhandle dispute, a treaty which sets the US-Canadian border at the 49th parallel, a...
  13. Map challenge: Better US state

    The task is simply: Reform the borders of the US states to make them follow natural frontiers like rivers and mountains, ethnic borders and/or economic areas, post a map about it and explain the changes. Yo don't have to stick to the actual numbers of states, you can create new ones, unite or...

After this, in the 28 of January, start the purgation of the Inmigrants. In February, more of 20.000 inmigrants, dies, and start the mass protests, after...

    Are immense empires inevitable?

    Looking through piles upon piles of maps, and playing far too much EUIV/CKII and the like, I ended up noticing a trend: enormous, land covering states. Or as is more familiar, space filling empires. My question is: are such states inevitable? Will there always be an empire of some sort or...
  16. Seceding From Secession

    If the Union got an earlier start during the American Civil War and had enough troops on the borders with the CSA, how many potential new states could be created in the way that West Virginia came into being? Or alternatively is it at all possible that vindictive Union States might be granted...
  17. What do you think of these alternate US state boundaries?

    I am writing a TL with a much more expansionist USA and they own much of North America. How plausible do you think these state boundaries are? Also, do you have any suggestions for names for the new states?

    AHC: Japan, the 51st state.

    With a POD of 1945, transform Japan from an empire to just another state in the union. Make the sunrise nation bow to the flower flag, and make it the 51st state in the union.
