More or less the old Oregon Territory and historical New Albion; OTL US states of northern California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Western Montana; Canadian province of British Columbia west of the Continental Divide; as well as the Alaska Panhandle to Mt. St. Elias.

History

(Nootka Sound dispute; cession to Britain.)

(Russian claims to Oregon; Crimean War.)

(Columbian migration to Oregon; Independence.)

(The California War; annexation of New Albion.)

(The parliamentary system; proportional representation.)

(Native revolts; Universal Suffrage.)


Slavery

From the beginning, Oregon outlawed slavery, and banned the immigration of freed slaves to its territory. The repeal of the ban on Africans and Chinese came in the 1850s.

Geography

Basically, Oregon is the watershed of the Pacific Ocean from Alaska to California.

The Rt. Hon. John McLoughlin, first Prime Minister of Oregon, famously quipped: "What Oregon lacks in history, it has more than repaid in geology."

Borders

Oregon limits: North: Alaska. West: Pacific Ocean South: California East: Columbia
