The varying color of the borders is what's got me confused. Of course, it certainly would be super cool to see a more explicitly political expansion of Soviet empire in place of Stalin's CMEA economic control!Well, the borders are pretty obscure, so might have to change it.
I have some complaints about this, there's no chance that the USSR would gain any amount of France, remember, they were almost out of men when they got to berlin. Besides, if they did somehow get parts or all of france, and didn't give it back, that's most likely means that moscow's becoming fried bear for a few decades.
That's the best map I've seen all week.
Are the Confederations all "native states"?
I would like to hear what's the story behind this and some of the namesJust released my global modern (2019) map for my timeline. Trying out a new large-image hosting service for it. I expect theres a typo somewhere
I would like to hear what's the story behind this and some of the names
I've read a little bit about a house of lamps, BUT THIS IS HOW IT IS ?? i've got a lot to catch up toThe TL is called A House of Lamps:
Basically Iberian Arabs colonize the Americas (first), but then a lot of the New World is also later colonized by Europeans so theres just a weird mix of names in a lot of places.

This is the world in ATL 2019, over 300 years since my previous last timeline update. Lot of stuff can happen in 300 years. Part of my worldbuilding philosophy was always to assume that while I was writing in one place, stuff was always happening everywere else. So, for a modern world map a lot of it is quite different than how it was 300 years ago in my previous post.
A list of names of places in the Americas and Australia and their (dominant) colonizers would be delightful.
Where the heck did that mega-Kongo (which does not include OTL Kongo kingdom) come from?
The main timeline has a smaller colonialism map
What happened with Kongo is that it was originally the largest portion of the Arab empire in Africa. It was then forcibly partitioned into a seperate state under English influence. The name is from the larger basin which ATL, like OTL, took its name from the Kongo people in its south.
Part of the reasoning was based in colonial views of Africa as being divided between so-called 'black' and 'red' peoples, so Sudan was concieved as a nation for the 'red' peoples while Kongo was for the rest. It was also believed by keeping this huge territory under one government in the south, far from major population centers it would make the local government have to rely more on established European presence in the densely populated areas of OTL southern Nigeria, where even through the Arab occupation Christian Europeans have maintained a trading presence in the area going back to the beginning of the colonial era.
Just as a general guess I believe its slightly smaller than the continental US.
I really have trouble seeing an area that large, diverse, and geographically poorly connected holding together as one state in the post-colonial era.
Does that lighter shade of blue indicate Egypt and west Arabia were French satellite states?
Was north China never conquered by anyone (different dynasty?)
German Sudan ...puzzles me.
Judging from the names, Australia might have originally been colonized by the Dutch originally, but it looks like a lot of other nations got involved and took over a lot of it.
Were there Muslim states in the Americas taken over by Europeans? Did some of them return to Muslim dominance post-colonialism?
Does Confederated Orian have sizable Castilian and Dutch minorities?
Haven't posted in this thread yet, so here's a quick mockup of a Twin Cities LRT system. More work to come when I find the time. There will be a commuter rail system as well, although probably on a separate map.
