    Post Alternate North America

    Alright, this is an alternate history version of North America. It's based on a universe of mine that's been growing and taking shape for several years now.

    I had a little trouble fitting in all the original countries and flags, so this is an abridged version, as I've cut some and fused together others. The original version contains such colorful locations as the Principality of Las Vegas, the Kingdom of Oklahoma and the Free Jewish City-State of Miami, but it didn't all fit quite well, so I changed a bit.

    The flags are all scaled, some of them are actually from my childhood, almost a decade old... Wow, just had a "memory lane" seizure there. Anyway...

    As the astute cartographer might recognize, the countries are heavily inspired by the Crimson Skies universe, of which the PC game is probably the game I've wasted most time on ever. Well, after Final Fantasy VII, maybe. Anyway x2...

    The capital of the Kingdom of Quebec, Manicouagan City, is inspired by the actual Manicouagan Reservoir, which has to be the coolest place ON EARTH to build a city. Check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manicouagan_Reservoir
    This is God's very own cartography, people!

    Oh yeah, by the way, I have blatantly stolen and modified the map of North America itself and the small sketch portrait in the lower left corner on the internets, found via Google. All credits and apologies goes to the people who created them.
