Territorial Evolution of Central America by DaFreak47 Territorial Evolution of Central America by DaFreak47
My map of the Federal Republic of Central America from my UPCA Universe. This will be the 5th map of this country I have submitted and it really shows that alternate history can be an ongoing process.
The changes since my last map include
-The annexation of the Mariana Islands instead of the Philippines, which somebody pointed out to me were much larger and more populated than I had previously realized.
-A change of the Guatemala-Beliz border, which Im still not sure about.
-The change of the name from the "United Provinces of Central America" to the "Federal Republic of Central America".

Any suggestions would be very much welcomed.

I like your black and white style. It makes the map seem authentic. Like something from an old textbook.

Thanks. Such a style suited me while I was in the hobby of cartography.

Now that you changed it to the Marianas instead of the Philippines, what happens to it ITTL?

It becomes an independent ally of Texas and Central America.

I know of Miskito coast, but what is Izabel, Los Altos and Gran Socomenco? And apparently there is ALSO a Yucatan republic AND a Mayan state. Hmmm. Wonder how this'll affect Guatemala and MExico.

Okay this map is much newer and more thought out.

Izabal is a department(province) and the largest lake of Guatemala. One of the prime reasons for the breakdown of the FR of Central America in OTL was that the capital was Guatemala City, giving Guatemala political power over the rest of the provinces. In this timeline, the provinces compromised by creating a new "Capital Province", denying both Guatemala and the other provinces power over the rest. Basically it was like Washington DC except a whole new province. Izabal.

Los Altos was a province created from Guatemala in OTL, because there was a strong rivalry between lowland Guatemala City and Highland Quetzaltenango. During the fighting that broke up Central America, Gutatemala invaded and annexed southern Los Altos and Mexico took the north. I dont think that exact borders exist because the province only existed for about a year.

Gran Soconusco was simply "Soconusco" in my earlier maps, but it occured to me that the OTL region of Soconusco is actually much smaller, but the entire region in my map was part of Central America so I wasnt sure what to do. In OTL it was simply a part of Guatemala until it was annexed by Mexico, but in this timeline, with the creation of Los Altos it was also given province hood and I changed the name to "GRAN Soconusco" so that if anybody noticed and said it was too big, I could just point out that it was indeed bigger that the actual Soconusco, on purpose.

Im not sure if you noticed but Yucatan and Maya are both provinces of Central America. They're not independent republics. Examine the map a lil more.

ahh. ok. yeah i saw the other maps. It's interesting that Yucatan and Santa Cruz can co-exist. I tink they'd butcher each other first haha. And spread into Guatamala, Soconusco, etc.

Well thats close to what happened in OTL, but the OTL Republic of Yucatan was annexed by Central America before the OTL Mayan revolts, so by the time they would have come around, local administrators were able to avoid them by creating a new province and placing would-be Mayan leaders in charge.
