The theme of this plan is that the Nations are drawn to be home to a specific ethnic group or groups. With one exception, each of them is drawn around a specific ethnoracial group; the exceptions is the multi-ethnic Megalopolis.
The ten Nations are:
The Megalopolis, 23.6 million people, 24% black, 6% Asian, 16% Hispanic, 52% WNH
Southwest, 29.5 million people, 6% black, 1% Amerindian, 7% Asian, 42% Hispanic, 42% WNH
Delta, 4.1 million people, 51% black, 1% Asian, 3% Hispanic, 44% WNH
Hawaii, 1.2 million people, 2% black, 42% Asian, 9% Pacific Islander, 7% Hispanic, 23% WNH
West-Central, 300,000 people, 1% black, 46% Amerindian, 10% Hispanic, 41% WNH
Northwest, 32.5 million people, 4% black, 2% Amerindian, 7% Asian, 13% Hispanic, 71% WNH
Northeast, 47.9 million people, 7% black, 2% Asian, 4% Hispanic, 85% WNH
Southeast, 56.1 million people, 20% black, 2% Asian, 7% Hispanic, 69% WNH
South-Central, 41.8 million people, 12% black, 1% Amerindian, 2% Asian, 14% Hispanic, 69% WNH
Midwest, 45.7 million people, 10% black, 2% Asian, 6% Hispanic, 81% WNH

Q: Blacks are given only a very small area as their homeland. How is this different from grand apartheid?
A: The parallels between this plan and South Africa's black homeland strategy are superficial.
American blacks mostly form a single ethnic group. South African blacks form dozens, and none of the homelands that were created for them were as big as Delta Nation.
The Bantustans were created on lands whites didn't want; the Delta is formed on lands which have historically had black majorities because of their high suitability for agriculture.
Delta Nation has several extremely important port cities; all South African port cities were controlled by the white government.
A new continental constitution could and should give Delta Nation the right to secede.
The region could not accommodate all American blacks without becoming quite population-dense, but it is not intended to.
Tax bases and tax collection mechanisms already exist in Delta jurisdictions; they are inherited by the new regime.
Delta Nation could coin its own money, operate its own National Guard, etc.
When compared to another ethnic homeland, Delta Nation does not look odd. Israel's 8500 square miles are homeland to the world's 13 million Jews (of whom under 6 million choose to live there). Delta Nation has about 50,000 square miles and is homeland to a little under 40 million American blacks. If all 40 million chose to live there (and all non-black inhabitants emigrated), Delta Nation would swell to about the same population density as Israel (but note that over 5 million blacks live in Megalopolis Nation, which is not an ethnostate and has no racial majority).
There is no reason to believe that the creation of Delta Homeland would touched off a broad-based movement to expel law-abiding blacks, any more than the success of zionism preceded expulsions of Jews from their homes.
