Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
California, Oregon, and Washington would likely work together on some plan for greater state autonomy, redefinition of the relationship with the federal government, or outright dissolution of the union. In the latter case I could envision an independent California having trade and resource agreements with a nation-state that is a federation of Oregon and Washington (and maybe even BC).

Again, I suspect that's all some years away, though the unfolding economic/political crisis could accelerate the timeline. In any case, it seems fair to expect that the USA as we know it is going to see significant changes in how it is governed.

And the world will live as one
