to be honest, I have no clue where this is going, but at least it's going
Ok. let me have a shot at this.
  • Those gosh flipping Americans invaded Canada during the Napoleonic war.
  • Portugues rump state... based in brazil? Nice Portugues african 'pink map'
  • British rump state based in... India? Australia? New Zealand is a puppet state?
  • not a bloody clue as to what else is happening.

I was thinking of the British keeping Florida, and not establishing Georgia as a colony (with it being split between Carolina (later SC and NC) and Florida (later Jacksonland and Seminola), with that somehow leading to the Americans getting Quebec on their side, and them treating the Natives better. Napoleon wins in Europe and Africa, but not much elsewhere, with the UK, Portugal, and Spain fleeting to their (remaining) colonies. New Zealand is a protectorate under the Maori, and the rest of the world is pretty much a wip

Sweet. I managed to get most of it right!
Who are the maori?

Naming a state "Jacksonland" seems kind of contradictory to the idea of treating indigenous Americans better, considering OTL Jackson committed genocide against them both as a general in Florida and as president.

I could do it like A More Perfect Union, and have Jackson be friendlier to the natives, although the only other names I can think of are West Florida (which is redundant, since there is no florida), or something like Gulfland/Mobile. What are your thoughts on it?
 
Wouldn't that blue Alaska's population be laughably small? Anchorage contains about 40% of the population, not to mention Fairbanks and Juneau, the second and third largest cities are both in the southern Alaska. The largest city in Northern Alaska, Kodiak numbers in the 6000ish range.
I know! I was just carving out a native state from the north.
 
I'm probably not going to finish in time for MOTF but I wanted to post a portion before it finished

The Southwestern Portion of the Baltic Mandate 2089, headquartered in Nexo, Bornholm. Though not quite Mediterranean, the climate has warmed, with the Carpathians dividing the increasingly subtropical Balkans/Pannonian Basin from a warm but still temperate continental Poland. Radiation is a constant threat, with nuclear proliferation strikes in Western Europe throwing up clouds of radioactive elements to be deposited across Eurasia. Large swathes of the Baltic Mandate are uninhabitable to humans, though nature finds a way. Over the past 60+ years, much of the urban locales have been stripped of scrap and taken over by grasses and shrubs. The modern transition from coniferous to deciduous forest has continued, though more through the processes of climate change, pest invasions, and fallout than the logging that traditionally forced the transition. Animal species have thrived in the edges of exclusion zones, with some making their homes in the heart of some of the worst fallout. Native or re-introduced megafauna roams, with wolves, escaped tigers, bears, water buffalo, feral horses, and American-European Bison hybrids growing in numbers, alongside pine martens, fox squirrels, racoons. Fisheries have recovered despite significant runoff from contaminated zones, though the catch is limited due to significant bioaccumulation. There are populations of humans entirely reliant on the rebounding wilderness for their caloric intake and economic livelihoods.

Poland, one of the largest states in the North Eurasian exclusion zones, with a population coming close to 300k, and maintaining three cities (Raciborz, Jelenia Gora, and Legnica) of over 30,000. The majority of the population is concentrated south of the Legnica-Rzeszow line, living in the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains. Poland has begrudgingly become one of the more diverse states of the Mandate, with Kashubians, Silesian Germans, Ukrainians, Vietnamese, Russians, Roma, Lemko, Goral, and Americans forming a substantial minority population, in some areas forming the majority of population still living in the region. Kashubians, Vietnamese, and Kurpies in particular are three populations who hold outsized importance to the Polish State, with all three being much more familiar and comfortable with navigating the wilderness, radiation, and isolated populations above the Legnica-Rzeszow Line. The Kashubian Autonomy is often considered a country unto it's own but participates in Polish Elections.

Carpathia is a majority Rusyn state that split from Ukraine in 2026 soon after 26/8, participating in the Ukrainian Civil War that followed. The Majority of the Rusyn population of the region has relocated to the areas around Villarrica, Chile, with Carpathia itself serving as a spiritual center, claim, and materials reclamation center for the Rusyn peoples. Due to its location south of the Carpathian Mountains, it's significantly better integrated into the Danubian Economic Network, though it remains in the Baltic Mandate in order to avoid Serbian domination and receive more aid from the United Nations.

Interior Peoples range from towns that refused to evacuate to the descendants of cults and militias. Some maintain sedentary agricultural lifestyles, others hunt and gather, while others serve as traders and security along the Amber Road, distributing finished goods from recovered nations deep into the Baltic and Volga Mandates, and bringing beeswax, lime, and other resources to the larger settlements of the mandate.

An HOI4-style map I'm working on involving a Napoleonic victory, with the prospective POD being Napoleon turning to deal with the Peninsular War in 1812 instead of invading Russia, and set in 1936, as is the beginning of the game.
