On a global scale, if the U.S. came apart, I don't think there would be someone to replace it,
I mean even now we're only barely more powerful than many places, of course that is
in different ways though.
I think the EU (as a supranational organization), Japan and PRChina, along with an up
and coming India would become the most powerful geopolitical bodies, China backed
by Russia would become a major military player in the 3rd world, the EU would be a
major Economic and world military player, and India may just play the role America
did before it was the world superpower.
Honestly I see something similar to how America and Russia were with the EU and
PRChina, though with considerable less military show-offey and no Cold War.
Now, as to what would happen to America, well I agree with others, some of it would
split into separate countries, I can see the East coast more or less staying together,
since that's more or less the seat of government.
However, the rest of the country would most likely split apart, Texas would declare
itself a nation again, and would probably go to war with Mexico if they tried anything.
Arizona and New Mexico I'm not sure of, I can't really see them going back to Mexico,
though they may form some sort of Confederation.
California I can actually see declaring itself a country as well, since in reality it has
a large enough population and economy to successfully do so, I can see Nevada maybe
joining up with them in it to.
The plains states and middle states I'm not sure of, they could go many different ways,
though I think they would be more neutral.
Michigan could Join Canada.
The Pacific North-West, that is Washington and Oregon I could see joining together and
forming a new nation, heck maybe the dream of Cascadia would be realized.
As for Eastern Washington, well I can see the state either staying together,
or Eastern-Washington joining together with Idaho.
Hawaii I think would become an independent nation, not only are they isolated from
the rest of the country, but they have a strong enough economy and have been trying
to regain there Independence since we forced them into the Union.
Alaska I can see going three ways.
Either it stays as part of the United States, if nothing than in name only, it becomes its
own entity or it joins Canada.
Ok, to be specific about who would become nations.
They have a record of being so before, have a huge amount of land, have an adequate
population, are socio-politically close enough to not have a lot of internal problems and
have the massive amount of oil and money, so they would be able to become a nation.
It has a massive population, the largest economy of any of the states, have a strong
enough government and would be bale to do well as a nation.
Cascadia/Washington & Oregon:
Oregon I don't think could really do to well as an independent entity, however I
don't see the joining California, but I can see them joining Washington as a new nation.
Washington has a strong economy, with some of the worlds largest companies based here,
including Starbucks, Microsoft, NOA and many others, we have good international trade
relations with the Pacific nations, we have both an agricultural and technological base
and we really are unique among the states in our socio-political views and attitudes.
