Proposals and War Aims That Didn't Happen Map Thread

I mean, most of the technocracy movement was fascistic back in the day. Futurism was a major aesthetic- and one either needs to choose an ultra-nationalist or a socialist worldview to really pull off a Technate like that
 
Here we have an interesting article about suggested future Chinese foreign policy. Anyone want to map it?


Also, here's another article about a suggested redrawing of European borders by 2035.


And finally an idea for a United Europe, Union State and Enlarged Turkey by 2050.

Rather than wait I decided to do it myself.

China 2060.png


A few notes on this:

- Taiwan is officially designated as a province by the PRC in the present day.
- Since none of the Islands in the SCS have any white pixels there was nothing there to color in.
- For "South Tibet" I added the PRC's current official territorial claims in India and Bhutan. The rest of Bhutan may also be included, though, the article isn't too clear about that.
- The Ryukyu Islands are the only expansion which, IIRC, hasn't previously been directly owned by China before.
- Returned lands in Russia include Tuva, Sakhalin and Outer Manchuria south of the 1689-1858 border.
- Tuva has been merged with Outer Mongolia, like how things used to be. With Outer Manchuria I decided to just keep the current Russian borders, giving a tiny speck of Zabaykalsky Krai to Amur Oblast.

Personally I find this version of China in 2060 to be much more aesthetically pleasing.
 
I always thought "North American Technate" had a very Orwellian vibe to it.
From what I've heard, it would've made Nineteen Eighty Four look like Thomas the Tank Engine. Currency was to be abolished. Instead, citizens would be issued a lifelong certificate of distribution, with which they could receive goods. Citizens would work a cycle of four consecutive days, four hours a day, followed by three days off. This system would include holiday periods allocated to each citizen.

Oh, and if that wasn't bad enough, in 1943, so they wouldn't get banned during World War II, the Technocracy movement made military conscription part of this planned society of theirs, so not only would you be forced to work for this society, essentially like a robot on an assembly line, you would be forced to fight for it too. God knows how these people would've run a military.

I can’t tell if you’re taking the piss or not- doesn’t sound too hellish.

The actual problems with techocracy were its distaste for democracy and its promotion of racism, sexism, and eugenics in the name of "rationality", not—god forbid—the institution of a sixteen-hour work week and the abolition of the wage system. Arguments can be made either way about the value of money under a society wherein all of life's essentials are provided free of charge, but calling that worse than Orwellian is a comical overstatement.
