4th Countries of an Alternate World Thread

Not another one! :eek: And back to it's original forum!

Seeming as 2 and 3 seem dead, I will begin the 4th one.

History and GDP will be expanded on after the map is finished, one last go at the no history idea.

Rules
1. All Countries must make up ONE, PRESENT DAY WORLD.
2. Smaller the better, but I won't restrict size. Make big empires if you must, but put them in terrible locations i.e. Siberia. I want the world to finish in enough time to let history unfold, but slow enough for everyone to participate that wishes to. I hope you understand what I mean.
3. Feel free to make as many nations as you wish.
4. Do not wank your nation to ASB levels.
5. Flags are fine, but not required.
6. Please post a map, but it's not required. If you don't post a map, then describe your countries location well enough for us to interpret where it is. When using maps, please use the map I used in this OP.
7. Have fun, and be creative. (But not ASB)

My own nation coming up. Please follow something like this format.
