about the proposals:

I don`t see what would be gained (from an IB narative point of view) by having the island becoming australasian. Also, One thing against the aussies intervening *there* to chase away the germans and occupied the island is the fact that there was no vichy regime who would have tolerated the german presence in the first place. --Marc Pasquin 15:33, 31 December 2005 (PST)

My vote would be for the casteways. The kergulen *there* could have become similar to norfolk *here* with a certain degree of autonomy given to the "natives" but with external policies being handled by France.--Marc Pasquin 15:33, 31 December 2005 (PST)

Ker-Gwelen

There is a church of St. Gwelen near Quimper/Kemper. I can't find an exact equivalent of Gwelen, but here are sites which might provide insight: http://www.daire.org/names/celtbrfem.html

I just found something about the etymologie of the name "Kerguelen": "Le nom Kerguelen fait d'ailleurs référence en breton à un lieu planté de houx". In other words, a place full of Ilex Aquifolium a.k.a. European holly. Hope that helps a bit in finding the fellow's Brehonecq equivalent. —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 11:08, 28 August 2007 (PDT)

Idea

What I'm actually wondering about, is if these islands couldn't have become the property of Veneda/the RTC in some how. Say, some extremely rich Venedic nutcase who bought them from France in the 1930s or something. Could give some nice interestiong with Free Lithuania! I'd probably use it as the place where a specific military brigade is stationed, one for particularly difficult (disobedient, punished) soldiers. As far as I'm concerned, Justin's castaways can stay, if we go for this. —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 02:30, 1 September 2007 (PDT)

I could maybe see a nutcase buying the land and paying a minimal tax....and thus it being Free Lithuania, but with French foreign policy or something.... BoArthur 20:46, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Iberica/Castilian

Does anyone mind if I change the two references of "Iberica" to "Castilian"? Misterxeight 21:09, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
