Didn't it end up getting moved to something? (I want to say 40 million...?)

Might be most interesting if new nations came into play with around 40 million people (unless for personal/plot reasons they wanted to keep it lower) - otherwise, it's basically a game of city-states...
Hmm. AP exams, group projects, essays...

Mattopia is growing steadily and quickly, due to the influx of immigrants from the war-torn north.

I'm considering it.

The ESA was never really mine - it always felt like I was playing to CDE's shadow. Tbh, I'd much prefer recolonizing Australia with some sort of multicultural super-colony with a few people and epic tech purloined from various countries of origin, made of a few elite veterans from various administrations.

Or the same thing in Hawa'ii with the Cult. The ESA would still exist, historically, but have fallen apart a long time ago - the closest thing to a successor being the Cult. The Cult would play much like the above idea, but with more aggressiveness, theocratic elements and somewhat like a very mini-version of the Nomads, if the Nomadic belief system involved actively working towards the total destruction of non-believers, and with an unknown time limit.

How does history work? Did the major nations (The ESA, the...ESA) we used to have still factor into the current countries?

Canonically, of course. But I'm not being a stickler about it. After all, who wants to read through three pages of threads to figure out every single country that used to exist :P

I am reading the "United States" as the "Exiled States" to be honest.

Detroit has been added as a City of New York. The surrounding area has mostly not- this addition should be much smaller than Chicago.
