Yes it doesn't look Indonesian at all i would say, even though its populated with Asian they're not Indonesians.

I don't really see any parts of Indonesia should belong to another sovereignty, since most of the islands already have different culture anyway.

Similar Malay dialect is spoken by the Malaccan Malay in Malaysia and Bintan in Riau islands, Indonesia, but most of the population seem to have no interest of leaving Indonesia. Beside the Malays originated from Sumatra.

All of New England, Pacific Northwest(OR, WA), parts of Upper midwest(ND, SD, MN, WI) can easily be part of Canada.

Canada really should belong to the United States. There really is no logical reason for the two countries to be separate, in my opinion. The differences are trivial.

The area of northwestern France, around Dunkirk, can be part of Flanders.
I have to agree.

My experiences in North Dakota felt more Canadian than American.

USA should do something with Puerto Rico too. Either make it a state or let it go, right now they're just keeping it hanging on
Except us in "north ireland" are perfectly happy with our position.

And I have to agree with Puerto Rico - absolutely nothing about it is American and it is completely cut off from the rest of America. Cut it off.

They can't stay like that forever.
