edit: being a province would give the dominion of Canada overlordship over Ontario. perhaps to signify their sovriegnty, the rulers of Ontario changed their title (with the blessing of the Non-denom church) to state.
That's a good point. You wouldn't want those dastardly Catholics to lord over good, god-fearing Non-Denoms, after all.
On another note, I'd love to figure out what the names of the nameless nations on the East map are. For instance, the nameless states above New Jersey would be named "Katskil" and "Hudson".
