Any chance we could flesh this out a bit? I want to see this as a pseudo-Thuringia, with city-states, principalities and republics. A micro-Holy Roman Empire, if you would, with an elected monarch from the monarchies with in it (but a special council for the democratic ones as well...). Good idea? Seth 02:25, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

I think the original idea here is that R-P was carved out of Prussia following GW2. But that's a pretty grey area. Benkarnell 02:55, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Not saying it wouldn't be, but I could see the region become a mini-HREmpire. Perhaps the allies thought of making several states out of it, but got caught up doing something else, such as the war in the Pacific. At the end of the day, the cities became semi-self-sovereign, prompting break-away states in the region. To counter this, the Allies quickly organized the new region, but were stumped on what to do. Monarchy or Republic? So they went with both to placate the locals, and voila! Rhineland-Palatinate, a microcosm of the Holy Roman Empire. Perhaps it becomes the bellwether of the country, too!

This is the first I saw this suggestion - sorry! I'd vote no, just because (1) I don't see why people used to stable Prussian government would spontaneously devolve into city-states, and (2) There's already a Thuringia. Benkarnell 20:50, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
