Okay, as promised, here is my attempt at a map of the world of "The Peshawar Lancers" as of 2025 AD. This map is a mixture of evidence from the book and my own conjectures. Sorry for the delay in posting it. Explanation: Angrezi Raj: Most of the info for the Empire is found in the Appendix of the book. The Empire is divided into three main parts: India (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Burma, Malaysia, and western Thailand), Australia (Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea, and various South Pacific Islands), and the Cape (South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Namibia, Angola, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, and the southern fringe of Kenya). The British have absorbed Indonesia as well. Britain is reported as recolonized, but is generally derided in the book as poor and backward. I assume that the recolonization of the British Isles was not complete by 2025, so I have the southern third of Britain claimed, with colonies centered on the cities of Edinburgh and Cork. As for North America, the book reports that colonization has occurred along the east coast and parts of the northern west coast, with outposts at the mouths of the major rivers. The outposts here are centered on Vancouver Island, Seattle, Gavelston, New Orleans, Miami, Savannah, Washington DC, Long Island, and Montreal. Smaller settlements are not shown. I assume that Jamaica was recolonized as well. A similar story goes for Europe, with British colonies in Gibraltar, Amsterdam, and Copenhagen. Military and scientific expeditions have penetrated into Germany (Essen, at least) and even as far as Moscow (judging by the appendix). The British also maintain ports in the Mauritius Islands, in the city of Aden, and the island of Bahrain. I assume that expansion into the Philippines has also occurred. France-outre-mer: The book mentions that France-outre-mer is smaller and less powerful than the British Empire, so they control most of Algeria, Morocco, northern Western Sahara, Tunisia, and the western half of Libya. They also have control of Marseilles and Sicily (from the book) and Barcelona, Corsica, Sardinia, and Naples (my assumption). Russian Empire: The book only makes mention of the cities of Samarkand and Bokhara, and the short story "Shikari in Gavelston" suggests that the Russians have an outlet to the Black Sea. From this, and given the fact that an Imperial expedition to the Moscow crater went unopposed, I assume that the Russians control all of the former Central Asian SSRs, as well as the Caucasus and a slice of southern Russia running below the 50Â° parallel. While the Russians still claim all of the old Russian Empire, the post-Fall die-out and the general lack of manpower in the modern era has kept this area largely empty. The Russia outlet to the Black Sea is centered on the city of Novorossisk. The Caliphate: All we know is that they run "from the Danube to Baluchistan", so I assume they control Iran, the Middle East and Arabian peninsula, Anatolia, Cyprus, Crete, the Aegean islands, Greece, Bulgaria, and Albania. Just to keep things tense with France, I assume they have control of Bari, Italy. In Africa, they control a sliver of coastline equivalent to OTL's Eritria. Dai-Nippon: They control Japan, Korea, China, save for Tibet and Xinjiang (which I assume were lost in the post-Fall chaos), Sakhalin, a chunk of Siberia, and Kamchatca, some northern islands of the Philippines, as well as a few outposts in the Aleutians and in Anchorage, to cement claims of control of Alaska. This fits in nicely with the ideas of Japanese lebensraum from the early 20th century of OTL. The Brazilian Empire: There is a brief mention early in the book of a "shadowy realm centered on Rio de Janeiro". I assume that this empire covers most of Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia, and a snippet of northeast Argentina. The Vatican has been relocated to Sao Paulo. Mexican Republic: A creation of mine that controls Mexico south of the 25Â° parallel, Belize, Guatemala, as well as Cuba. I figured some civilization should survive there, and the place should be a bit of a "Amerixican" society. Due to various internal problems, they haven't really tried to expand much. Kingdom of Madagascar: From the book. They are friendly with the British, but in no hurry to become part of the Empire, despite the wishes of South Africa. Kingdom of Vietnam: Another of my creations. They control essentially OTL's French Indochina (Vietnam, Laos, Kampuchea, and the eastern half of Thailand). Both the Raj and Dai-Nippon patronize them, but neither is ready to conquer it yet. Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, and Xinjiang: These are all independent states that serve as buffers/future Lebensraum for the Raj and Dai-Nippon, with some Russian meddling in Xinjaing. Afghanistan: Three-way mayhem between Russia, the Raj, and the Caliphate, with many fiercely independent tribes. Sultanate of Egypt: They control Egypt, the Sinai, and eastern Libya. They are also independent, but played with between the Raj and France against the Caliphate. Assorted city-states/petty kingdoms/emirates: This describes the various tiny political bodies that exist in the southeastern United States, northern South America, and the Gold Coast of Africa. The empires, primarily the Raj, meddle here when they can. Here there be dragons: Exactly as it says. Hordes of barbarian cannibal tribes in amongst the ruins of industrial cities or vast undeveloped expanse. A few scientific and military expeditions take place here, and the various empires claim these areas, but nobody really has any reason to go here, aside from treasure-hunting/empire-building. I more or less sprinkled the impact sides around as according to the book. The European ones occur in a narrow band mainly on the north German plains, with a major hit in the Atlantic Gulf Stream, and several widely separated impacts in the western and central USA. Thoughts?
