What a brilliant idea. So far I especially love the combined Guineas and Congos and -guays. And Wladiwostockholm and its friends, and the Bermudas plus the Bikini Atoll, and Kulinarien, priceless. (((-:
Well, to get on the list for E-Z-Map version 2.0 ...
I forget where Frankfurt and Frankreich have been sent (Paros?) but shouldn't Franken be there too? Even if the Fränkische Schweiz is already in Switzerland.
Perhaps we could also return a few wanderers to their places of origin. New York, New Jersey, New England, New Hampshire, New Orleans, New Mexico -- well, obvious, really, the old ones were perfectly fine, and the Statue of Liberty will look lovely next to the Minster. Then, let's see, neutrino sent New Brunswick to Braunschweig in #143, but New Caledonia and the New Hebrides can go with Nova Scotia back to Scotland. And what about sending Newcastle to Oldenburg?
If anyone wants to move New Zealand again, it could go back to Zeeland in the Netherlands. That is, someone was ahead of me in #63, but if we could gather up Neumünster, Neubrandenburg, Neuss, etc., it might be better to send them all to Neustria, thus solving the problem of what to put in the hole left by the former France.
Within the US, I would personally like to combine Illinois and Indiana, as it always takes me a minute to think which is which. Same actually for Vermont and New Hampshire, the names may not be confusing but the shapes certainly are. And if we could just move both Hawaii and Alaska off the coast of California, it would make the US map a lot easier to draw.
And aren't Virginia and West Virginia also headed for Queensland?
Rats, kikært already got to the flags
in #103, but I'm all for this concept. If having confusing flags
counts as grounds for reform, then it's certainly high time to combine Australia and New Zealand; Denmark, England, and Switzerland; the Netherlands, France, and Russia (plus Luxembourg, Slovenia, and Serbia); Germany and Belgium; Italy and Mexico; and (my personal favorite) Texas and Chile. Less urgent but still possibly useful: Ireland and the Ivory Coast; Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Argentina; and Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and Romania.
