    The Church of the Moon is the largest extra-terrestrial member of the Anglican Communion in terms of membership. Separated from the Church of the Beyond in the First Division of 1948, it serves Anglicans across most of the Moon - Anglicans in Lunar America are part of the hierarchy of the...

    Something from the same world as the one piece of actual writing I've done on the forum: The Kingdom of Caledonia, 2019 Legal Parties The Caledonian League - Oh, look, they've won again. I'm sure the fact that the new seat boundaries are based on land area, not population, the mass voter roll...

    Some (incredibly soft) AH from a world where, amongst many other things, cars never caught on beyond being luxury items. Since their establishment by the Rationalist government in the 1920s, the Metropolitan Transport Authorities have been the bedrock of local transportation in the Kingdom of...

    Wisconsin, 1910, aka When Socialism Came to Milwaukee. The Social Democrats swept the city offices and won large numbers of state assemblymen as well as an extra state senate seat and a congressman. The mayor, Emil Seidel, is best known for serving as Eugene V. Debs' running mate for both of his...

    Got a request to try and draw a fair map of Georgia. Turns out that's really hard, this is attempt number 9 and I'm still not really happy with it, mostly because of the hoops I had to jump through to create a VRA district in southwest Georgia that doesn't include Macon.

    It's definitely San Juan you're talking about, and I really don't know - I think it's because it's so small, there were only about two thousand votes cast and the YES side won by eight hundred. You can see a similar thing for NO in Garfield County, but there were no thirty to forty percent yes...

    Washington state is unique in having legalised abortion through referendum, 49 years ago. There's a very detailed look at the campaign here, which I urge reading for context far beyond what I could give: http://depts.washington.edu/civilr/referendum20.htm. Thought it was an interesting look at a...

    Two more Wisconsin Senate - it's of particular interest to me as some distant cousins on my mother's side were very involved in Upper Midwest R politics at the time, I didn't just pick a random state.

    Milwaukee was an absolute pain. The map in the book just showed the districts that were in the county, and had a list of the city wards and the townships that made up each district. I had to dig out an old guide to Milwaukee from 1904 which contained the ward boundaries listed by street, then...

    My first attempt at one of these, from an electoral-reform thought experiment I've been making a few, as-yet unposted, maps for. President Romney is suffering from the six-year itch and an economy which has just smashed into a brick wall. State of Pennsylvania, 14th November 2018 The Big Two...

    I made a few non-state legislative maps for a friend of mine from Pennsylvania today, thought I'd put them up here. They should be fairly self-explanatory. At some point I'll do an actual AH map...
