Jan, I think that a map focused in on Meidji-do would be better than simply repeating the entire map of Alta California. BoArthur

Oh, of course, but such a map doesn't exist (yet). I was simply looking for unused images, found the map of Alta California, added it to the article, and when I saw the Meidji-dò is also on it, I thought it would be nice to have it here, too (from a better-than-nothing perspective). But of course, go ahead and make a map focused in on Meidji-do! ;) --IJzeren Jan 22:01, 29 Aug 2005 (PDT)


What's the population like here? Since it's not the size of our world's Ft. Ross, there can actually be a viable population not living in recreation log cabins like in our world's fort and also the mission museum in Sonoma. Good stuff. Misterxeight 19:06, 23 September 2016 (PDT)

From what Christina has posted I'm inclined to think that it's not much bigger than 25,000 to 50,000, counting all the communities along the coast and on the interior. I would imagine that it's more in the 12,000 - 25,000 including those permitted to trade within the trade-area proper. BoArthur 11:41, 26 September 2016 (PDT)
Mmm, gonna have to agree w/Kostas on this one. I'm guessing there's at least a decently-sized port there (it is right next to AC and Monterey, after all), especially since a TGV/Xincansen line is getting built there and all. User:Juanmartinvelezlinares 17:28, 9/23/2016 EDT

Let's compromise. What if the Japanese built a huge port city connected to the continent's railroads to better transport goods to mother Japan, but it's mostly port facilities so most of the population is transient, so the population stays small? You could probably still have a big and busy port city with only 50k people in the area. It need not be a Japanese version of San Francisco. Misterxeight 16:13, 27 September 2016 (PDT)

Hmm, so something like Algeciras? Sounds good to me. User:Juanmartinvelezlinares 10:27, 9/28/2016 EDT

Given that there's also likely aerodromes to accommodate the freight coming from the eastern reaches of America, I shouldn't be surprised that the whole installation is MOSTLY port facilities as Mr. Xeight suggests. Moreover, we know that it isn't a San Francisco analog, and San Francisco/Oakland's equivalents are large and populous, as we've discussed in other times. I stick to the 12-25k size including the transient population. BoArthur 08:38, 14 October 2016 (PDT)

Sounds good to me! Misterxeight 16:36, 15 October 2016 (PDT)
