    Oh good, I was hoping someone would sift through the book and pick out all the interesting bits so that I didn't have to actually read it.

    Hello there, I am currently doing an alternate history project involving that wikipedia article I posted, and I'm currently struggling with alternate U.S.A. borders. If anyone could help me on creating plausible borders for this United States of America, it would be highly appreciated. I would rather keep the borders of California as the way it is because its relevant to my canon.

    It's a US territory similar to the US Virgin Islands or Guam.

    Why wasn’t it integrated with the rest of Alaska?

    Well the logic is that Alaska is already pretty enormous so doesn't need all that extra land that few people live in. Also the feds get less objections when they operate in this region instead of having to deal with Juneau.

    I'm this close to completing another map. I added text, as well as more Lesser Wilayats

    Since it's still a WIP, I'd change the AD dates in the text to AH dates since it's written from the Islamic State's POV. So, 2020 should be 1441, while 2022 should be 1443.

    How is the rest of the world doing?

    I'll get to doing that. I wondered if it was a good idea to include western dating systems in the map, but I forgot it was an IS map

    I haven't flushed that aspect yet. I would imagine the world is suffering from the effects of an IS victory. The European stats would probably fortify their borders and undergo a dramatic surge in far-right ideologies the likes of which has never been seen. Possibly it could descend into Christian Fundamentalist Totalitarianism, where 'Europe is threatened by the heathens', and horrific acts are committed.

    Meanwhile the United States would suffer 'causal trauma', where they believed their actions in the 2000's lead to the formation of the Islamic State, and so they would have their policies based around on what they do with IS and whether to interact with them. Mainly they would try and combat the increase in Islamic fundamentalism in their borders, as IS was proven to be right in their predictions

    Terrorism is a big thing in this world, with terror attacks happening constantly to the point of complete desensitization and numbness. Imagine a 9/11-esque event occurring every 2-5 years. Islam is seen in this world as a dangerous ideology, similar to Nazism, and not as a religion.

    Indeed. I've been trying to create the lore for this world without it bordering on pure edginess and darkness, and trying to be unique in this scenario, which has been quite difficult due to it being IS. I'm experimenting with different ideas and whatnot, such as Christian fundamentalism being revived in order to counteract the Salafist-Jihadist-Wahhabist doctrine of IS, as well as the formation of a Anti-Islamic Coalition to combat the Islamic State

    If I have to say which parts of this world aren't in turmoil, it would most likely be Latin America, since they aren't seen as the enemy by the Islamic State, but that's up in the air.

    More Sung Survives. Didn't change much to the actual original map aside some aesthetics; messier West Africa, cut off the northern bit of Nan Si Jou, and I liked the Holy Union of St. Matthias a bunch so I gave it its own colour. Only real comprehensive change is not giving quite so much land to the Empire of Eire, namely Scotland.
