Upvoteanthology: The Protectorate Game: A Smoother Scramble for Africa Scenario (also detailed on map): The Scramble for Africa is much slower than OTL, leading the great colonization powers to focus their might on Asia instead. Since they have better places to be than Africa, places like Britain and France hired small tribal states to do the expansion and tree-cutting for them. Ethiopia was the most successful of these states, with special support from Britain militarily and economically. France’s star student are the Bornu, who managed to expand 3 times their original size. Peace is bountiful on the African continent, and it will be for years to come.
