For those starting with Saxe, would you accept Sachsen? E.g. Sachsen-Meiningen, not just Saxe-Meiningen?

Could you accept Wuerttemberg? At present I think it is only accepting u for u with umlaut, but the standard English keyboard custom is to write as ue.

Try to make states ending in burg be more consistent with accepting the spelling of berg. Some accept it while others do not. Incredible SVG though

If you type Hesse it gives you both the electorate and the duchy but not Hesse Homburg. Given that every other state has to be guessed individually, why not here?

This is because the common name for both Hesse-Darmstadt (Grand Duchy) and Hesse-Kassel (Electorate) was just Hesse.

It wasn't an unified country yet at this time. It used to be way worse. It used to be even worse until Napoleon finally got rid of about a couple of hundreds of states that were part of the Holy Roman Empire.

This is why in fairy tales you have so many princes and princesses of tiny places with funny-sounding German names, and only a few subjects.

"Bayern" is a default type-in for Bavaria on Jetpunk while "Preussen" for Prussia is not. Though this should work soon, however.
