That’s a very well done map, the corrections I would do: Make Ukraine smaller (Muscovy has more territory near the south and RK Ukraine doesn’t have access to the frontier), Free France controls Equatorial Guinea from Spain, Djibouti, Somaliland, Nice, and Savoy are Italian, give some parts of Epirus to Albanian Italy. The British should have Dutch Guinea but India is Independent as a Unified Dominion (for now, the “Unified” part will certainly not last long), and the Chinese Civil War will still be finished in 1950, also, the Arab part of Palestine is part of Jordan, not independent.
Why was Equatorial guinea not returned to Spain after the end of the war?

Free France was never a part of the Treaty of Lisbon, the invasion was made in retaliation to the Spanish support for Operation Felix. The Spanish are recovering from the Civil War with a stagnant economy while dealing with Republican remnants and growing Falangist influence, they aren’t able to afford launching an invasion of Equatorial Africa. Although the Spanish still control the islands, only the mainland was taken.

Sorry to disturb you but since I also wanted to make a map of Europe for TTL I have several questions:
1. The state of Monaco was annexed by Italy, right?
2. Apart for maybe Batumi Turkey didn't get anything since they were neutral, right?
3. What is the current status of Iceland and Faroes?
4. Serbian Banat remained Serbia or did it become a Reichkommissariat?
5. Was Geneva annexed by Italy or France?

Yes, the Principality was annexed by Mussolini’s troops after the final annexation of Nice and Savoy.

The Turks only get to be between a rock and a hard place, and an angry Syria staring at Batumi.

Iceland and the Faroes are under British occupation while the Americans are doing the same to Greenland.

Banat+Belgrade are a separate Reichskommissariat ruled by the Swabian Germans, with the former Belgrade, now called Prinz-Eugenstadt, acting as a German fortress to watch over the Danube.

Geneva was annexed by France.

... Anybody can explain me why Patton hate Douglas MacArthur ?
They ended up forming a rivalry during the Pacific war, Patton was already quite a rebellious commander and it took Eisenhower’s patience to handle his temper. But here, the Supreme commander is MacArthur, probably the only other man that could rival his ego in the US military. Here the two men constantly argued over the Pacific war and on taking credit for victories. Patton claims MacArthur is a fraud who wasted men in an egocentric campaign in the Philippines for no strategic reason while also placing incompetent morons in charge of Operation Olympic (Where the US army actually failed to take one of the beaches as they lacked the D-Day experience from OTL, the other two beaches were just barely taken after fierce Japanese resistance by the Marines). Mac, on the other hand, claims that Patton was an erratic and insubordinate commander who launched boldly risky operations that took unnecessary losses (The Americans took very heavy casualties in Patton’s push towards Nagano only to fail to capture Emperor Akihito). They are both right and wrong at the same time, but essentially that led to them forming a rivalry in the war, especially at the later phases during Operation Sunset. It would later end up becoming a “War of Memoirs” as both blamed one another for blunders after the war and Patton started that off by calling out MacArthur right in the final weeks of his electoral bid.

OTL the allies were lucky to have men like Eisenhower above rivalries to mediate with a cool head, Ike here is a General but not the Supreme Commander, Wheeler made MacArthur have that position after his successful defense of Oahu. But here? Imagine if instead of putting in charge someone that can fan the fires, you put someone that pour a gas tank on it.

That remember me the Bonus Army when Patton order charge with Tanks against Vetarans from the Great War who fight with Patton
 
WORLD MAP 1950
Remade my earlier maps including necessary changes.
Iron Eagle 1950.png

Also added in (a rough estimate albeit) a map depicting the alliances of the Cold War.

Considering that quite a few internal subdivisions are marked on the map, maybe have Chinese warlord territories be marked as well as quite a few of them (like Yunnan, Shanxi, Guangxi, and the Mas) were still around IOTL until the CCP took over China.
