    Yeah (at first I though that both should be some wild heretic theocracies - bit like hussite Bohemia or that otl Munster... but now I think, that at least mega-switzerland would be too much decentralized and more liberal, when it comes to religion... so armed-neutral Swiss? How original :D)
    Britain (well, England, at least Scotland is independent) just carry on with its medieval ties on Rhine (or maybe just younger and luckier Anna of Cleves?). King of England is now count of Holland, Cleves and Nassau.

    Interesting stuff, but a lot of American borders look too convergent to me for a 1699 POD.

    Because I was lazy, and this map was delayed for so long that I kinda forgotten what sort of story I wanted to put in the setting. But the basic premise is me experimenting on how secular nationalism will look like taking up assabiyah from Islam and how Islam itself would look like being the one which develops what basically amounts to diamat discourse.

    Also, America is an easy choice for a fulcrum for an ideological strain opposed to Jacobinism since contrarianism is what America excels at, even over a monistic revolutionary ideology whose zeal only gets amplified by stronger Islamic influence and challenge.

    Guyana Following the Great War

    [​IMG]
    In 1895, following the American Civil War, tension with the United Kingdom were at an all time high. Many Americans falsely blamed the war on the British Empire putting too much stress on the States, claiming their refusal to aid the Union was proof enough. Enter, the Venezuelan Crisis of 1895, also called The Essequibo War. Which was fought between the Venezuela [Supported by the United States and their client states] versus British Guyana supported by the British.

    The Americans eventually ceded defeat when tensions between the Spanish and Americans were looking as though a Spanish American War was underway; the Americans were worried that If such a war did occur while they were also fighting the British, the British would also support the Spanish. So a White Peace was established, with the Border Remaining as it was. However, the Americans would not forget this embarrassment.

    When the American Empire joined The Great War, she brought her various client states and made deals to the Guatemalans and Venezuelans for their entry. Guatemala would regain the territory they lost in the Third Anglo-American War + Belize, while the Venezuelans would get their desired Essequibo River Border with British Guyana.

    A random map I made that has is completely ASB and has no backstory except a surviving divided Roman Empire. Sorry in advance for the terrible names, borders and... well, everything really :p Feel free to ask questions.

    Why are the various colonies of the ERE referred to as Greek *Insert Name* ? Shouldn't they also be called Roman *Insert Name* especially when you've already color coded them?

    So how was Arabia's overpopulation solved? Was there an avenue of expansion other than the Levant and Iran?

    Some could consider this map as shitpost, but I actually did work on it and borders are pretty accurate in my opinion. No further idea on how to describe it besides a border-colour pool.
    The file is too large to be uploaded (a full Q-BAM, seriously?), so please, click that DA link.

    That is a mistake on my behalf.
    They were divided between the East Roman Empire and Persia for a long time, their population fighting itself though wars or colonizing east Africa and Srivijaya under Greek overlords. It stayed like this until Persia was temporarily conquered by (H)India, At which point Arabia became a semi-independent buffer state of the Eastern Roman Empire.

    ... I can see the problem. More likely the Walloons would move a bit into Champagne and Lorraine than French Flanders. Though understandable they would go after Picardy and Calais. Does this map have the French, Austrian, Italian, etc lands being sent over with the people included? It is just such a shame more German areas weren't sent along to bolster Luxembourg and the German Soeaking Community in Belgium. Would have been so fun to see to multi-linguistic unions competing with each other.
    now this has gotten me thinking about a Belarusian Grand Duchy of Lithuania. In the same manner that Savoyard Piedmont (plus Genoa) too, on the name of Sardinia in order to take the kingdom title.
    i do adore the Netherlands. Would you break it up even further into Provices? Or you having the core territory more unified?
    I am surprised the Wnglish didn't just stick with Commonwealth, though I suppose it and republic fairly similar translations from the original Latin. Before noticing Dionisio and Scotland mentally deduced they became a republic solely so they could say the Republican Bloc was following after them. Anyways, fantastic map. How long ago did you make it? And fantastic stuff with the Von Gundoldingen Dynasty Lands. Colonies for landlocked countries... I do hope someone does something similar to your map sometime. I would adore to see what they would do with the backgrounds for these colonies.

    Yes, It's part of an 1812 timeline I am working on. I want to get a few dozen updates prepared and the basic timeline finished before posting. I want my first timeline to be good.

    Awesome. I assume that the Europans end up intervening.

    True, but it's just a quick one without a TL so I didn't put much thought into it.

    Or perhaps the Jovians, although they usually only act under pressure.
