OP, the Sudeten Germans were relocated to Bavaria after WWII. The area is fully Czech now.

To answer your question: The German Community of Belgium is two enclaves on the German border that were given to Belgium after WWI.

I believe the French in that area is Acadian, not Quebecois.

Many have already been said but, Northern parts of North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin are more like Canada. Southern Ontario more like the US. Imperial County, CA could easily be part of northern Baja.

The Belgian province of Luxembourg could join the country of the same name. Likewise for Belgian Limburg.

The area of northwestern France, around Dunkirk, can be part of Flanders.

No, not true. Quebec borders VT, NH, and ME. Maine is the only New England state that borders Acadia (New Brunswick and Nova Scotia). Most of the Acadian French were driven out of the region centuries ago. The French Canadians in New England are mostly from Quebec.

North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin is 100% American.

Why are you even participating in this thread? We all know how sensitive you are to anything about the USA that doesn't sing it's praises ALL THE TIME!

Interesting thread! I don't really know a lot about this, so I have a few questions for people who may know...

Are there parts of the Netherlands that might as well be apart of Germany, or vise versa? Like maybe border towns in Germany that mostly speak Dutch?

Or some border towns in the US/Mexican border that are predominantly Spanish speaking and Hispanic and had might as well be apart of Mexico?

I'm also curious about the French/German border. Are there border towns in both countries that mostly speak the language of the opposite country across the border?

Odd for someone who believes this to refer to them as the Falkland Islands rather than Malvinas... anyways, the citizens of the Falklands recently voted on this issue and virtually everyone voted in favor of remaining a British Protectorate. Argentinians need to get over it.

Inner London is economically and culturally diverging from the rest of England.

It is almost impossible to find a primary school with majority English born children, or even a large minority.
