Belgium? That seems like a pretty stable place outside of the Muslims

You again?

Guess you don't know about the ongoing feud between the Walloons and Flemings. Secessionist movements exist in both regions (Flanders and Wallonia) but as Flanders is the richer half, the movements are strongest there. Flanders could possibly make it as an independent country where as Wallonia would most likely seek annexation by France. Of course there's the German speaking region of Eupen/Malmady which constitutes about 1% of the country's population. Then there's Brussels which lies north of the linguistic border surrounded by Flanders but belongs to neither and is about 85% Francophone.

I have no problems with Karelia, Prussia, Flanders, Alsace, Galicia, Savoy + Corsica joining Finland, Poland, Netherlands, Germany, Portugal and Italy but i don't think i like the idea to make them independent.

Scotland and Wales should be independent.

*Northern Iraq will definitely become Kurdistan in the near future.
*Some of the autonomous regions in Russia would be independent (but which ones?)
*Scotland and Wales
*Sicily perhaps?
*Greenland (from Denmark) in the far future, because I doubt that they're powerful enough to be on their own nowadays.

I can't read the green part of the italian map, I wonder where we are supposed to be included, but I would not include Emilia Romagna and Tuscany in the Lega Nord movement

Also, Normandy ? They should rejoin with Sweden then
