I think it would be *neat* to have more than one Principality in Atlantia.  However, there are two points to keep in mind:

1) Does the ENTIRE rest of Atlantia (south of the proposed Principality) have a common identity and common bond to form into a single Principality?  I could see another group (say South Carolina & Georgia) forming a Principality, but not everything from Southern Virginia down.

2) I have seen some VERY nasty North/South rivalries in Atlantia in my day.  Tax Assessment Battles in Black Diamond had a name and philosophy change from the original idea because the rivalries were too bitter.  I think Atlantia would suffer from two Principalities that encompassed its entire territory.  Either two Principalities with some groups left over, or three (or more) Principalities, might be fun.
