- Republika Srpska
Well, first question: would Serbia be a part of the Austrian or of the Hungarian part of the Empire. Geography dictates it should be part of the Hungarian part, however there was a lot of bad blood between Serbs and Hungarians. Austrian part? Maybe, but then I assume Hungary would protest because they would be surrounded on three sides by Austrian lands. Also, would the Serb population even accept such a union when they had just fought brutal wars for independence against the Ottomans. I highly doubt they would like the idea of just switching foreign rulers.
