    Sorry to all those who were waiting for my ATL thing. I wrote an entire TL to satisfy you, but a pivotal moment was a different result of the Crimean War, which someone pointed out probably wouldn't have happened in the first place had Germany unified 4 years earlier.

    I'll try an rig something up to fix problems, and make a few maps leading up to 1914 soon.

    And with the true Swiss spirit, they'd divide that into about 8000 cantons. You could have real fun trying to keep track of all of them on election day.

    It was only due to the influx of easterners during the gold rush that got us into the Commonwealth in the first place. We were the last part of Australia to join, which is why we are not in that part of the constitution.
    We voted n, lke most of Australia, except the ACT.

    On a side note, we had a referendum to succeed from the commonwealth. IT actually passed in the affirmative, but it was not ratified by Britain, which is why we are still part of the commonwealth

    Actually you required a majority of the states as well as a majority of the population to vote in the affirmative to cede. It wasn't something that Britain had much power over.

    I don't think countries like Canada are that happy.

    How the hell would that work out?

    Green is happiest, I think, and brown the least happy.

    It won't be very deep. It will just be a meter or two below sea level.

    That doesn't fit what the map says, unless green is worse than yellow...

    Because (for example) Indonesia is green while Brazil is yellow. Brazil is significantly worse than ninth by that map
