Greater Bavaria by Arminius1871 Greater Bavaria by Arminius1871
After the great financial crisis and the political turn on the 16th December 2027, Bavaria left the FGR (Federal German Republic) and started negotiations with the austrian federal president Hofer to talk about an accession. After short time it was sure that both states will unite into one.

At the same time an emotional performed peoples election took place in South Tyrol, which Italy couldn´t ignore or stop and resulted in its return into the new state. The new state was called Großbaiern (Greater Bavaria), because the Austrians agreed on an all-bavarian culture identity.

Regensburg, being a mid sized neutral city, became the capital, but in Munich and Vienna many important ministeries keep up their work.

Many thanks to :iconlehnaru: for his help (especially the flag)

If you have further questions ask in the comments, thanks :)

PS: I wrote "Baiern" and not "Bayern", as the y is a rather "new" reform from the 19th century and both states wanted to go back to their roots.

Maybe Linz or Passau is more suitable for capital. Franconia and Swabia can be excluded from Greater Bavaria due to cultural differences, a referendum would have been held before joining Bavaria or Germany, or becoming independent.

Why don't they just make Bavarian the official language instead of standard German?

Well this would be like today's Austria, they also accept a High German variation,
anyway you don´t want to lose all the contact to the other Germans, only because
you are an independant state.

Interessantes Konzept (Im echten Leben wäre das nicht so gut, da Bayern wenigstens ein Bundesland ist, welches nicht allem zustimmt, was Merkel macht), erinnert mich irgendwie an einen alternativen Ausgang des 2. Weltkrieges, bei welchem die Allierten beschließen, Österreich-Bayern als neutralen und komplett souveränen Staat einzurichten.
Allerdings würde, wie von anderen auch schon vorgeschlagen, Salzburg als Hauptstadt meiner Meinung nach mehr Sinn machen, da es erstens direkt zwischen München und Wien an der Grenze der beiden Landesteile liegt, und weil die Stadt in der Geschichte von sowohl Bayern als auch Österreich eine durchaus bedeutende Rolle spielt.

You need a basemap with heights and then you trace every height on a separate Layer and fill each layer with another height colour. Very easy actually.

Thx! Ah it was meant to be in the future, so the high german standardization would´ve been
everywhere already. Idk if they would really try to make the dialect a main standard variation again.

It can be considered a language or a dialect. There is no real distinction between the two.

As someone once said, a language is a dialect with an army and a navy.

No it followed the standardization from the beginning, so it is only a dialect.

Dutch didn´t follow it (but it could have) and turned into its own language for example.

Funny, I just noticed what you put in the description about "Baiern" which got me thinking; English words for locations very often switched from using "Y" to "I" either during the 19th or 20th century (depending on location), whereas Germans went from using "I" to using "Y" in its place, instead.

Wow. That is just weird.

Another funny thought; the Slavs actually took the Greek alphabet & made it their own, whereas the Catholics just adopted the Latin alphabet with language-specific accentuations......

Haha :D

für den fall dass du es noch nicht wusstest: heutzutage steht Bayern mit "y" für das Bundesland (schließt also auch die Franken und Schwaben mit ein), während Baiern mit "i" nur die Volksgruppe/Ethnie meint.

Alle Baiern sind Bayern, aber nicht alle Bayern sind Baiern. :) (Smile)

I honestly think an Austro-Bavaria can be achieved if Frederick the Great died before the Bavarian succession crisis.

Well Joseph II would have had more leeway in reforming the 
decaying Habsburg realm, but at the cost of alienating Russia 
and the other members of the Holy Roman Empire. 

Meaning Austria and Britain will be alone in combatting France
