    Just for fun, I want to recarve the US, going in both directions. First, I'll add more states and then I'll combine a few. The catch is that no non-US state can be added, included territories such as Puerto Rico.


    New States

    -Jefferson

    (carved from California and Oregon; real life proposal. )

    *My Capital: Eureka


    -The City-State of New York (New York City)

    *Capital: Manhattan


    -Washington D.C. or New Columbia ( )

    *Capital: Washington (only city)


    -South Florida (everything south of the Panhandle)

    *Capital: Orlando


    -Superior (Michigan's Upper Penninsula; real proposed name. )

    *Capital: Marquette


    ----------------------

    Combined States


    -Carolina

    *Capital: Charlotte


    -Dakota

    *Capital: Bismark (I can't think of anything better or more centralized)


    -New England

    *Capital: Boston


    -Pacific America (Alaska and Hawaii)

    *Capital: Juneau


    Maryland (Delaware added, it may be the state I think about least)
    *Capital: Annapolis


    -Texahoma (just kidding Horn fans).:grin:

    Do you watch the show on History called How The States Got Their Shapes?

    There are lots of states that almost sprang up.

    No but a quick trip to Wikipedia revealed that to me. That's how I found out about Jefferson.

    I say divide the great U.S. and A. into 4 countries. That way we can have the NBA be between 5 different countries! It'll be like our own champions league.

    ...With Dallas as the capital. Works for me (but we get to keep Fort Worth).

    Even after the pre-season curb-stomp our taxi quad put on Tenochtitlan, either of these wars would be hell on earth for everyone involved. Also one of the reasons the Confederacy had to be completely and utterly burned to the ground.

    Washington and Oregon should be combined, then divided down I-5. The western half including Seattle, Portland, Eugene, Vancouver etc should be one state and the Eastern half which is mostly rural should be another.

    Combine Texas and New Mexico and rename it, "Texaco". That would be unique.

    We don't need Canada...

    Build a wall on Oklahoma, secede, and go grab NoLa (since no one wants it) then annex Mexico and go grab the Panama Canal....in one quick Blitzkrieg

    What?
