What is the official language of the New Inca Empire? Is it still Spanish? Or has the government tried to replace it with a native language like Quechua?
Now THIS is interesting. Are you ever going to continue this project or is it too long dead for you?
I cannot be sure by te looking on my iPad if Bornhold is colored the red of Russia or Sweden. Either way, it really gives a blow to the reasonableness of this map. I suppose it might be the Danish Democratic Republic or the Danish Soviet Socialist Republic?
Noooo!!! Not the Newfies!!!
Jeezum, Atlantis really let itself go.
The government kept Spanish, but highly promoted learning of the Quechua, with the eventual goal of replacing Spanish. Thanks for asking!
Preview of the next map in the Soviets ISOT to 1700 series.
EDIT: Link to last post. My apologies for missing this earlier.
Oh... my... god...
Wait, where was the last one? I am sure it would answer many questions I am having on why the Soviets are broken up and the Swiss defeated.
That was my bad. Here. 1875, 5 years prior to the map two posts above. War happened two months after the map pictured, but the map is of the political scene after the European political scene sort of stabilized. I've edited the above post.
The Swiss were taken over in the initial subsumption of Europe by the old USSR (USSR collapsed a while ago, it's Eurasia that collapsed into nuclear war) and when the USSR was falling apart, the western portions of the occupied downtime Europe declared independence, and formed the Western Socialist Republic. Switzerland was part of the WSR. The WSR and Eurasia, the USSR's most successful successor, were in a conventional war until one day, they weren't. Current year is 1880, world does have parity with modern technology for the most part. As for why they're broken up, nuclear war.
Thank you, so far this has received more likes than anything else I ever posted.
Thanks. Yeah, Earth in general is pretty rough. As other people pointed out, Neptune is really far away. Solar isn't a huge issue- most people rely on nuclear if they can- but there really just isn't any point in going all the way out to Neptune. There are only between 100 and 150 million human beings, they have plenty of room where they are, and most expansion these days is confined to planets that have already been settled.
I'd like to continue it one day- probably as a reboot of the original 2012 story- but right now I have way too many projects waiting in the wings, plus RL.
I do you have the first maps in the series
There are links to the previous map included in all of the Soviet 1700 series.
But here's the first map, the second map, and the third map. The third map is the most recent one, I'm going to do a 4th and 5th map before the series finishes. 4th map is next, shows aftermath of Westerner-Eurasian war.
Circa 1920. Borders de jure, actual situation quite different in places (most notably, Russia doesn't exist as such).
Slightly different WW1 leads to the border between British and French zones of influence being the Euphrates River.
Thanks to the University of Texas for the base map.
Historically speaking, doesn't the Euphrates tend to wander around a bit?
I imagine it would be possible to mark the border at the river's current location and on paper not have it deviate from that course no matter what the river does. You might end up with land on the other bank one day.
Historically speaking, don't borders tend to wander around a bit? Especially in Arabia.
Cannot wait to see this. Dont know what it is. But cant wait.
Wouldn't it be easier (in this situation) to have straight lines between markers?
Given the historical tendency of both the Euphrates and Tigris to shift they'd draw a few straight lines between them where they expect the rivers not to cross.
