a goodly bit of work. What's the current year? Who is running Spain: a branch of the Habsburgs or Bourbons, or someone else? Could you explain a bit about what is going on in the "Great Leveler War" map? Quibble: I need some more explanation of how the Netherlands got *Belgium. The Austrian Netherlands were of very strong interest to France, as well to Austria (being the Austrian Netherlands ) and were only incorporated into the Kingdom of the Netherlands OTL due to a desire to keep post-Napoleonic France contained with stronger states on its borders.
