AH Challenge: How many states in the Union can you make

So here's something that's been bugging me for awhile, with a POD no earlier than 1783, carve the US up into as many stats as possible with the following catch, the landmass of the United States cannot be any bigger than OTL with following exceptions: any land that US once held( ex. the Philippines) and the Dominican republic, since it wanted to be annexed.

State of Franklin succeeds, for one. Possibly also the Florida panhandle.

Texas is divided into 3 states: Rio Grande (Southern Texas), Houston (Eastern Texas), and Amarillo (Northern Texas)

Texas is divided into 5 states around 1850, as the South wanted more votes in the Senate. This likely has an alternate effect of not causing the Civil War and therefore West Virginia not forming.

The 5 states would probably be Texas, Houston, Lamar, Travis, and Austin. Which one would continue to be Texas is beyond me.

If Texas breaks up at all it will break up into 5 states, the maximum allowed by the Annexation Treaty.

Otherwise Texan pride would prevent the state from being partitioned at all.

New York would be divided into New York (New York City, Long Island, and Westchester) and Hudsonia (Upstate New York)

Decades of Darkness. 88 states by 1950. And a buncha territories to boot.

But you have to make them into crazy racist, slaveowning, manifest destiny-obsessed culture instead of the lighter version of that in OTL.
