1.) "Republic of Aristocrats" Technically a democratic republic, but dominated by the moneyed and propertied classes to the point of plutocracy. Economically prosperous and industrializing, but massive wealth inequality and social problems remain.
2.) "Progressive Authoritarianism" A nation in which dissent and political opposition is clamped down on. Power is concentrated in the hands of a single ruling party which is relatively liberal outside the area of political rights and intent on dragging the country into modernity. Of course the old ruling class and conservatives are deeply opposed to this modernization. Somewhat similar to Ataturk's Turkey.
3.) Constitutional Monarchy. In the British style, the monarch exerts much informal power both politically and socially. However, governing power is devolved to elected parliamentary government. Conservatives, gentry, businessmen, liberals, populists, and socialists all battle for political supremacy as the king tries to keep the country together.

I still feel that a Chinese state with a very Western model of government and society would make little sense in our timeline. Why would the centre of East Asian civilisation adopt Western ideas in a world where East Asia has always had parity with the West?


Well it would still remain tied into global trade networks like the Song, bringing in outside knowledge. If other Song trends continued there would also be a sizable "middle class" of sorts alongside a general diffusion of art and literature through more of the population. With this in mind, western influences could combine with shifting local beliefs to form new ways of thinking and governance. Although there would remain a rough parity with the west, China has historically undergone dips and crisis which could lead to this upheaval as well. Of course any new government would still be uniquely Chinese and my descriptions are pretty simplistic. I see your point though, it would be strange for south China to be completely western in its outlook.
I'm just a normal, functioning member of the human race and there's no way anyone can prove otherwise.

It depends on how much coast you claim. You can't both control a lot of coast and have a big control deep in the mainland.


I wouldn't havebig control deep in the mainland. The deepest I want to go is the African Great Lakes, and I think that I would only have colonies and some outposts there.

Scandinavia was largely Orthodox as far as I remember, but with pagan influences. Germania has a pagan twist to its religion, and even Italia has pagans.

I'm not sure, but I think so. The American Commonwealth player did drop his app. There is a small claim somewhere in that area though.

Most of it, yes. There's a chunk of the Great Lakes area centred around Illinois, I think, that is claimed. And someone stated an interest in New England.

We might need to post approved claims and the corresponding map. :)

1628-1644: Buckman and the settlers take over what is now current day Novanglia from natives and a large fishing industry begins.

1661: Emory Hooligan becomes president on the Commonwealth Party ticket. Hooligan raises taxes and encourages expansion.
1667: A farmer known as Sullivan Scott leads a revolt against President Hooligan as the raised tax rates causes the already poor state of Maine to nearly collapse. Scott overthrows Governor Ephriam Long and declares himself president of Maine and declares independence.
1667-1671: The Mainer War of Independence rages on as Sullivan Scott leads a brutal guerilla campaign against federal troops.
1671: President Hooligan is impeached by the Novanglian Senate and Cornelius Clark is appointed president. Hooligan becomes a pejorative term for robbers and thieves.

Scott is controversially pardoned by President Clark and returns to his farm in Skowhegan.
1671-1683: President Clark rules and lessens or removes Hooligan's unpopular policies and becomes very popular amongst rural citizens.
