The gold highlights along the coast of the world maps represent all areas within 50m of sea level. The reasoning behind this is that the gold areas represent likely coastal plains, since when you raise sea level by 500m most of the coast becomes jagged mountains without anywhere for new coastal metropolii! In this raised-sea-level-world, new coastal metropolii will likely arise in the gold areas.
I figure I ought to throw in this nifty little tool that allows you to move between 0-800 meters of sea level rise over Google Maps. It's obviously not a perfect tool since it doesn't help you at all with polar regions but it's still fun to play with: http://floodmap.net/
 
I think this 500-meter world would be interesting if it happened in the twenty-first century and many new cultures are born out of the old ones, maybe this can become a collaborative threade. also whats the climate like in this new world?
 
For a first map, not too bad, I must be honest. Well, at least better than most of our starts. On a purely visual level, I'd only really recommend trying to avoid using straight lines for borders - especially for non-imperial states (such as the vaguely Hasburg state in the Balkans) - try to base those states off of geographic locations. There are major flaws in the history, but that's not always the point of these maps and I shouldn't imply it is the case.
 
I thought about the mega-Dzungaria for almost the rest of Asia and the revived Inca Empire in South America, but it’s hard to find a suitable global elevation map.

In Appalachia, you'd have a mix of Native American tribes including the Cherokee, as well as some English, Scots-Irish and German settlers, though I do not know what the exact population of each group would be.
 
Crossposting from another thread
Less of an ideal Roman Empire and more one that I think would be kinda interesting.

What territory does it control?

What is its government?
Mixed.
Executive: Triumvirate Republic. (Military, Domestic, and Diplomatic Leaders.)
Legislature: Totalitarian Democracy.
What is its religious situation?
Religious syncretism. Mostly based on Roman Mythology, but it contains a large amount of influence from Christianity (and later Islam). Special note goes to Jupiter-Jehovah, the head god of the Religion. Also a large minority of Buddhists which usually gets absorbed into the syncretism. Occasionally Buddha is syncretized with Jesus Christ into Christ Buddha
How does it look demographically?
*shrug*
How powerful is it on the world stage?
It's not.
What is modern Roman society like? Anything interesting about the culture that you'd like to share?
It's a trade nation. Almost all ships that travel the Mediterranean have to stop in the Roman Empire. All the laws of the society are based on the old laws of the Roman Empire and the Roman Republic.
 
A twisted little idea that has been beating around in my head for a number of months....
*****
It is sometime in a near forgotten epoch of history when humanity had attained the technological heights we associate with the 1950’s, and the world shudders on the brink of destruction. In a desperate bid for survival representatives from the length and breadth of the developed world are flying into the Egyptian capital of Thebes to try and find a way to bring the crisis with the increasingly erratic United States of Atlantis to an end before it sparks a war that could drag the planet back down into the stone age. The dignitaries, be they from the bustling and urban Babylon or the dusty deserts of Egypt, hope that some way can be found to maintain peace, but with the Atlantean President Alexander Basileus thundering over the radio about ushering in an era of dominance for his nation, tensions running high between the countries partaking in the conference, and stockpiles of Greek Fire (atomic) bombs growing by the day many fear this last ditch effort at salvation may in fact be a case of too little, too late.

And a special thanks to @Historyman 14 for giving me more ideas to add to this.
 
I made this thingy. Please give me tips to make this better.

Kaiserreich Modern Day

What type of government is in India? What are relations like between the U.S. and the Pacific States? What about the views of the people of New England about being ruled by the British again? Which ideologies are dominant? I assume monarchism is, given the German Empire, Habsburg lands, and the resurgent U.K. Are there any syndicalist countries left? Who rules in France (I'm just wondering because, while it appears to be normal France, there's a decision in Kaiserreich were you can choose to keep the republic, restore the Bourbons, or restore the Bonapartes)?

As the first age comes to a end, we may hope for the greater future of the second age, for we sail into a new odyssey.


But great work as always.

The Dominion of India unified India.
The PSA and the USA were at each others throats for a while after the 2ACW, but it never fully escalated to war due to the PSA buddying up to Japan. They are chill now.
They could be happier, but they are content enough.
Both monarchism and democracy are dominant.
Syndicalism is very similar to Communism OTL in which barely any syndicalist countries exist, but they are still out there. Namely the Indochinese Union, Chile, and Argentina.
France keeps the Republic.
 
Hey everyone, the print version of the People's Socialist Atlas is coming out on December 7th! That's three days from now!

Where can I find a link to buy it when it comes out?

Heh. Cute. I think you can safely make Persia and Ethiopia a bit larger, they'll be going down anyway, and they're not too convincing right now as independent states. Could use a couple of ancient Arabian kingdoms, too. (Queen of Sheba, anyone?)

Israel and Sheba....its complaint is the understatement of the age.

I've always wanted beach-front property :)

I can't imagine what the flooded portion of the Grand Canyon would look like, but now I want to see it!

Will you still be around after the publication of the PSA? Or are you done here?
