Western Democracy by DaFreak47 Western Democracy by DaFreak47
So Ive had "mappers block" for over a month now and this is what I decided to do. Plenty of people use the idea of the Republic of California and the Republic of Oregon/Cascadia, but my map is a bit different. It took me a while to make this map and Im still not completely satisfied with it but here it is.

it's different indeed, and fantastic. I'd like to know how they got Alaska... and does canada have a usesless pacific coastline that's tiny here?

In this map, they purchase Alaska from Russia after the American Civil War, but I've since rethought the scenario and believe that Britain would have purchased Alaska to give BNA a larger coastline. And yes, in this scenario Canada has a tiny useless coastline.

Astoria was a western fort built by the Astors, a wealthy family in the east that hired fur traders to hunt beavers in the Oregon Country.

Your welcome!^^

But seeing the map you made got me thinking of the Cascadia independence movement, and
 how geographically similar it looks to Russia's colonial claims in north america upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia… .

Do you think this is more than a coincidence?

It's not a coincidence, but they're not really related. When the Russian's explored the American northwest, they laid claim to the coast and sometimes all the way to the continental divide. The Cascadian independence movement claims much of the lands west of the continental divide as well with geographic boundaries in the north and south. Although they encompass much of the same land, the Cascadian independence movement is not in any way caused by Russia's claims, but rather they are shaped by natural features in the region.

Bu it is an interesting idea to think about what a republic of the
Pacific would have looked like.

The only ways I can see this having becoming true is either 
Russia solidify it's claims in north America, OR the Oregon boundary
dispute ending with Oregon county becoming an independent 
from both Britain and the United States.

Idea: Make a Soviet Union with Alaska, then dissolve it along with Alaska :D
