Fear Nothing But God: Africa, 2019
I've been working on a world map of a TL I'm finally putting into practice almost non-stop for the last few days and I'd say 2/3rds of that has been invested in an Africa. I thought I'd upload it as a bit of a teaser and to get throughts before I move ahead! The middle eastern and South African borders aren't final and a few labels need fixing but its nearly 2am and I've decided I want to leave it for now. Interior borders are hopefully final!
As a brief explanation, TTL's Africa has had reduced (but still present) European influence and several large powers, particularly the baKongo, Tswana and Mupata have established modernised, powerful sub-saharan nations. The Sahara itelf is a "Nondominion", effectively half way between a massive UN Mandate, a Neutral Zone and a Reserve. The map is set in 2019 and European colonies persist in the Dutch Cape and Portugese southern Africa, though both have lost territory to Native kingdoms in the past few decades and the Portugese situation looks bleak. The rest of Europe, particularly the Fraternal Commonweath, Kingdom of France and United Kingdoms of Norden exerpt power though small "factories", concession cities that litter the coast much as they did in OTL's 17th century.
Anyway if you have any more questions please feel free to ask!
although if I may add some criticism
That Sahara non dominion includes a lot of the Sahel, over a hundred million people will live there, seems a bit shitty to put them under an international control
You got some names wrong in Southern Africa BaKongo are the people, the country would likely just be called Kongo, similarly AmaXhosa. Refers to the people while such a country would be called KwaXhosa (like in KwaZulu-Natal), same for WaYao->UYao, it would be better if you add republic or kingdom or whatever to these names if you keep them like that.
Also I find it hard to believe the Dutch cape wouldn’t expend in Khoi-San territory, also you could argue about the plausibility of a Xhosa becoming the major ethnic group in south eastern SA without Mfecane, or that a Khoi-San nation appears in the place where the toughest Nguni lived, but eh let’s forget that.
The Omani-Zanzibar fraternity must not be very “Fraternal” to its hinterland inhabitant.....
