American Pacific States by DaFreak47 American Pacific States by DaFreak47
NOTICE: This map was made soley for the entertainment and enjoyment of myself and is admittedly very unlikely, so PLEASE dont fill my comments with contradictions. Im aware

So basically
-After the Spanish-American War, the USA saw the potential for owning territory in SE Asia and so put more effort into putting down native rebellions in the Philippines and was able to keep them and eventually admit them as a state.
-After the defeat of Japan by America in WW2, instead of simply occupying Japan, the USA took control of Japan and eventually the rest of its conquered/aquired land, besides eastern China.
-After the Korean War, South Korea was controlled by the USA and North Korea by China.
-The different territories of the Pacific were separately admitted as US states during a time of American "Manifest Destiny".

I always secretly wished that we took control of Japan and the Pacific costal countries after the wars in the area, it would be interesting seeing America with territories and states spread out so far in the world. Another great map.

Oh, and nice reference to the Republic of Ezo. That is a nice touch for history buffs.

Back when I made this, someone pointed out to me that the population of these territories would be more than that of all current US states and territories combined :D Having to govern that many non-white, non-Christian citizens would be very problematic. And given that, forcing democracy on such a large section of the world's population goes against much of our values. Although we did do it in the Philippines and Puerto Rico.

Hmm... perhaps you could try to come up with a backstory as I find that this map of yours really has potential.

Its probably one of my least likely maps. Its pretty old and has no real story
