The UnUnited States of America

This is a simple map showing how many states have declared themselves a sovereign state and how many are planning such a measure.

I think we can just forget about California, though; it doesn't count. (Kidding!)

Kansas appears to be preparing legislation, much to my delight, as well as the rest of the central states.

There has been some discussion around my house about Kansas and Oklahoma joining the Republic of Texas in an alliance of states, since Texas has a greater GDP than many countries its size.

But what would such an alliance be called? The United States of Texas? The Texan Alliance of States? The Texan Confederation? The Republic and Commonwealths of Texas? The possibilities are endless.

For ten years, the Republic of Texas was a sovereign nation, the only state in the Union to previously be so. Its borders encompassed parts of Oklahoma and Kansas in its brighter days, as well as New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming, before Texas was annexed to the Union.

If or when the U.S. falls, will we have another secession era?
Most likely, I would say; what is questionable, though, is what factions will side with whom?

Very interesting, I'm glad to see that AL will be doing this.
