    I'm pretty sure that the map you are basing this on was a fake. If I remember it was made by an anti-muslim group. The map also just doesn't make much sense. Take all of that territory but leave out areas like Indonesia, it just doesn't make sense.

    Also, why, if you are claiming India, would you leave out the heavily Muslim Bangladesh? Or not claim Tartarstan, etc?

    Honestly though, the [supposed] Daesh/ISIS map based off of a Victoria 2 basemap is still one of the funniest things

    Also, these plans were already covered towards the very beginning of the thread

    Whats the obsession with having southern Ukraine go to Russia? I'm fairly certain they aren't majority Russian like Donbass or Crimea

    I think it’s more strategic and economic reasons then cultural.

    There is the fact that prior to the whole Ukrainian chaos truly erupted, the South-East of the country was the power-base of the pro-Russian faction, and the North-West was the power-base of the pro-EU/NATO faction. I think a lot of Russian ultranationalists believed/hoped that the more pro-Russian regions of Ukraine would happily welcome Russian 'protection' and/or become an indpendent Russian ally in the event of Ukrainian balkanisation.

    As it transpired, Ukrainian nationalism, fanned on by the escalating situation, was a lot stronger than the historical preference of 'friendship with Russia' over 'friendship with the West'. The vast majority of ethnic Ukrainians almost immediately shifted to the nationalist (Western-backed) camp, and only ethnic russians and certain other minorities favoured joining Russia. Hence, separatism in Crimea and 'Novorossiya' (both majority non-Ukrainian).

    I'm not even sure if even any Russian ultranationalist still claims the 'optimistic' borders they initially desired. That was just a pipe-dream, it has faded, and now even the most rabid nationalists only claim Crimea and Novorossiya (as far as I know; I may be underestimating the lunacy of some extremists).

    Not a majority, but a very large portion. Also, that area has been part of Russia for centuries, plus there's the other reasons.

    Not lunacy if you take into account the possibility of a proper Russian intervention.

    So it doesn't say who the "conquerers" would be, but by reading between the lines and with a bit of intuition, here's what I can conclude:

    Yellow = Japan
    Pinkish? = Mexico
    Green = Canada
    Red = Britain, likely with Spain taking Florida

    So, can someone QBAM and/or Worlda this?

    I'm afraid I can't make sense of the image on the left side of the map.
