    Why is it in German? I associate German-language maps with those of the Holy Roman Empire and its various subdivisions.

    Yeah, but I think that's because North Americans have a completely different understanding of the word "liberal" than everybody else.

    How many of them are descendants of pre-1848 population of that region?

    That's not true at all

    What's the point of it?

    Back in the day the Altered Maps threads used to be for alt-history maps and other sorts of map-related make-believe.
    Then at some point it became Graphs and Charts, Now with maps!

    I liked the early Altered Maps better. I'm a bit tired of infographics.

    And even worse, half of it is just racial/ethnic crap maps. (and i don't mean just those with Poland)

    It's amazing how Mexican it gets on the US border, but once you cross into Mexico, it's not Mexican anymore.

    I found Civ'ed's map kind of boring, just a slight alteration on like a victoria II map almost (no offense)

    However, I understand your feelings. The altered map threads were actually the first of OT I ever saw, and I remember some sort of games from back then

    And with that in mind:

    I present to you all, this:
    Spoiler :


    The united states have been abolished, and a number of kingdoms (or other types of monarchies if you prefer, but they have to be monarchies) are to be established.

    And who shall be king?
    You, of course!

    Go ahead and claim your part!

    yesterday, I promised Takhisis South Dakota as consolidation for his failure to become king of Finland. However, you may dispute his claim and other's, as well as come up with all sorts of compromises

    EDIT: Also, whacky kingdom names are encouraged

    EDIT: MJM has claimed Florida

    I had to think about this.. I thought you were describing some real-world phenomenon that's only clear to those who have crossed the border there.. ... then I looked at the map again :lol:

    Here's my claim, I guess:

    Spoiler :


    Celestial Empire of California. Consisting of the cool parts of California, and some New Vegas territory because I want to mess with Tolni.

    I claim the San Francisco GBay Area and Fire Island (just make it Long Island and perhaps NYC) as the Princely States of Queeristan. The title for rulers both male, female and intersex is Queen.

    It's German.
    I traced the outline of the continent from a German map of... 1900 I believe?
    It was only prudent to make it German :p
    Also, it looks like a Victorian map because that's the style i was going for :p

    Spoiler :


    (I realise I'm not the best mapmaker)

    Now, cybrxkhan and Johanna, you have both claimed San Francisco bay, and need to come to some kind of compromise sooner or later

    Spoiler :
    Also, I realise I'm a bit of a killjoy here, but I would prefer contiguous areas

    Cybrxkhan can have the rest of California, but at least the San Francisco Peninsula is a well-defended redoubt of Princely Queeristan. Rather dead than straight!

    Like Americans are even going to care. We just want to know how many of them living in this country still watch Spanish channels, and whether they have green cards or not.

    You will need to come up with a name

    Will you be taking all of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island? (I will allow it, but some other people might not (I kind of want some tension))

    You can also request a colour

    I will update San Francisco bay when cybrxkhan has made some input

    I think I'll go for dark green in colour and call my new realm the Kingdom of Nova Alba.

    Those six states aren't that expansive in landmass and form a neat border, so let's go for it. :)
