Recent Poll Results

A unanimous vote for the independent states of Kansas and Oklahoma to join the Republic of Texas in the event of a secession, on the condition that the states retain total sovereignty, has been cast.
While this union of states is entirely hypothetical and, at least for now, just-for-fun, what would a plausible appellation be for such a political body?

My current thought would be for something along the lines of "The United Republics of Texas", but one must keep in mind that such a union would be for the benefit of the three states, and not just for Texas. Each state would contribute to the whole: Kansas being the main crop provider, as it is "America's Breadbasket"; Texas being the main oil and trade provider, as it is rich in "Texas Tea"; and Oklahoma providing... cool license plates.

All name suggestions will go into the next poll.

You must unzip the file after downloading, though; otherwise, you will get an error message when you try to upload it to Blogger.

I would call it either:

The Tri-State Republics;
The Republics of New Ireland. ;)

"New Ireland"???

Ah, the blarney flows from yer tongue like the rivers of Cork.
