And here is the list of targets and potential swings in the upcoming Columbian election:










These maps are colour coded in five shades of the same colour. Here is the key for all of them:
1. (Darkest): current seats held.
2. Seats vulnerable to a 5% swing.
3. Seats vulnerable to a 10% swing.
4. Seats vulnerable to a 15% swing.
5. (Lightest): Seats vulnerable to a 20% swing.

Damn, just read through this thread, that's one messed up electoral system you have here. The left is near entirely suppressed despite being roughly of similar size as the other big parties. Any reason they're disproportionately hit by it, and is it my leftist brain causing me to think it's intentional?

Not intentional. Just the perils of FPTP. If you look at the margins needed for Labour to pick up their target seats, they’re *incredibly* narrow. Basically both left parties have been reduced down to their core seats in this election, Labour much more so than the Liberals

*Left bench and right bench: Because of the fact that the French Revolution didn't happen the same way that it did IOTL, the terms left and right wing didn't come about. Instead, the terms that came about are left and right bench. Left bench refers to OTL right wing parties and right bench refers to OTL left wing parties.
Nice! People tend not to change this in TLs, even those with PoDs before the French Revolution (the only other example I can think of is LTTW's metallic spectrum). This is some lovely granular detail.

Is there a full map of the nations of North America together?

That's really cool, but shouldn't it be Texas? If you're using the old spelling for México, it might be best to be consistent.

In a totally useless comment, it's so odd to see Valladolid, my birthplace, also existing in Mexico.

That's because, much like the English in North America, a good portion of the Spanish colonists were a bit unimaginative in (re)naming places - in this case, Valladolid was the old colonial-era name of Michoacán.
