The New World holds firm as the largest region left on the globe where the Free World's might predominates, and where many of the remaining great powers reside .... Alongside these prominent Royalists are the mighty "Twin Republics": the vast American Federation and the resilient Sovereign Federated Republic of Gran Patagonia, both doing whatever has to be done for the future of democracy.
The United Kingdom (now a glorified Canadian "protectorate"), the Kingdom of South Italy (a borderline fortress-state under the Savoia-Siracusas), and the Sovereign Knights of Malta (a South Italian "protectorate" that answers more to the Vatican-in-Exile in New Austria) ... The powerful Empire of Japan (still under the Yamato) and a vestigial yet potent Sovereign State of Free China.... the United African States (a republic forged from the remnants of colonies and native kingdoms after the Terror) continues to stand as a firm buffer against further Collectivist expansion alongside its Republican allies.
Several states over the intervening years have since adopted various strains of Reactionarism, which could be described as a group of ideologies comparable to myriad fascist and authoritarian regimes... Together, they form ... a potent force against Collectivism.
It is dominated by the Party through the Supreme Politburo. The Collectivism espoused is known to be a radical and paradoxically theocratic form of Socialism that glorifies the "Will of the Workers" and the transformation of mankind itself. Granted, the sheer size of the Internationale and the varying interpretations of Collectivist principles mean that it has seen several bouts of infighting, though it's speculated to be at least partially deliberate to sustain the regime. Such flaws, however, do not diminish the threat posed, or their efforts at destroying entire cultures and peoples to remake them in their image. So effective were such purges that after a century, all that remain of the so-called "Lost Nations," insofar as anyone's aware, are the descendants of refugees and exiles scattered across the world (known colloquially as "Revivalists"), as well as whatever could be saved by the countries of the Free World. Only the risk of utter atomic holocaust, it seems, holds back immediate plans for a Final Revolution...for now.
I don't know but I don't think communism is all that good whatsoever despite opposing monarchism and fascism.Is it just me, or this is transparently just... "monarchy is noble and good, democracy is fine so long as it tolerates monarchies, fascism is okay so long as it's against communism, and communism will always be corrupt because something something human nature" in its implications? Like, I'm not necessarily saying "the author of this thinks that", it's just the message I see is somewhere around that. The existence of the Japanese empire and of the Knights of Malta certainly don't help, either.
The third time someone didn't do Sexland in this thread? No one's willing to take the bait

I was always curious what the states in Africa were, like the United States of Africa, or Senegal. Always thought that state in the Levant was a mega-Israel.
MEMORANDUM OF FOREIGN POLICY DISCUSSION
SUBJECT: MIDDLE EASTERN POLICY
PARTICIPANTS: [REDACTED#1] [REDACTED#2] [REDACTED #3]
DATE, TIME, AND PLACE: JANUARY 5 9:03-9:43 PM EDT 2013 THE PENTAGON
One of the most interesting spots for the Islamic world will definely be Palestine. I see the Syrians immediately trying to annex the Golan Heights, as well as that extra land they occupied during a war touching on the Sea of Galilee. Refugees will probably be dumped in the rest of the area (Palestinian Refugees, maybe Syrian ones as well depending on if there is still that civil war), the millions of Palestinians will find themselves without the homes they and their grandparents left, and the West Bank- Ooooh. All those Israeli soldiers and settlers are going to wish they stated in the rest of Israel. No roads or much in the way of decent wood to build boats to try heading to the coast and fleeing. Perhaps they are disarmed, cleared out of East Jerusalem, and them left to stay exactly where they are? I imagine people would make jokes about how ironic it is when looking at a map of the area, but- Yah, I don't see the Arabs in general or Palestinians in specific trying to slaughter them, but I can see offers being made at the point of a gun to get in a boat to be dumped in Italy.
Awesome map. I also love the idea of these circles that ISOT areas from further back as they expand from the initial point.
Coolio. I like that post of yours. I have lots I could say, but for now I'll sya this: On point 4, if I remember correctly, in Beedok's fab ISOT series, on planet C, a Canadian-manufactured space-travel part was found on Mars or the Moon.I began thinking about the ISOT process a while back and came up with some questions ... open to discussion.
None taken, this was not a thoroughly researched project. I’ll try to track down the one I read and edit it in here. It’s probably a source linked to from the Wikipedia article on Christian population by nation. There was dispute between various sources I read so I decided to go with the low estimate of Christian population for Russia.
