Cradle of Humanity
This is a world set in the year 12017 HE (2017, I'm using the Holocene calendar), where all the land is water and all the water is land.

This specific region is one of the more prosperous ones. They are isolated, shut in by two great deserts, but just over 30 million people live in this region, which is a third of Earth's population. Because of a lack of water, these civilisations are stuck with technology from the OTL 1600s. However, because of their strategic location between two large oceans, they have prospered more than other regions.

Central America and the Mediterranean have never met. They only have myths of each other, due to the massive desert blocking their way. However, in the future it will be possible to cross the desert to Africa to reach the Mediterranean. But they do not have incentives to do so.

In the history of this region, there were five main powers. Thanarada, Samerico, Shahaarha, Hellan, and Huanyoi.
- Thanarada once took over the entire gulf region, but now they are slowly falling apart, after a number of coalition wars and civil wars.
- Samerico still holds a considerable amount of power in their region, but newly formed powers such as the Seshiyan have contested them time and time again. Now, they are a fragment of what they once were.
- Shahaarha is the strongest of the five, even after the break-up of their empire. Balthrisia caused their downfall, but the Shahaarhan Empire still stands strong, as they continue to dominate as the food producers in the region.
- Hellan fractured due to the rise of Katkaris. Katkaris had control over expert generals and an abundance of food, and with their advantages they managed to topple the Hellanican Empire. They now are one of the biggest nations in the world, encompassing massive areas of farmland. They have essentially replaced Hellan.
- Huanyoi was once an important trading partner with the Shahaarhans. They soon forged a massive trade empire. Their fault, however, was when they attempted to forge solid trade routes with the West African region. Their King poured so much gold into these routes that when a drought hit upon the route between the two regions, Huanyoi collapsed into many smaller states. Like Samerico, they still hold power, but are a shell of what they once were.

In 12017, the main powers are now Katkaris, the Slowwannan Empire, the Shahaarhan Empire, and Balthrisia.
Katkaris Flag
A flag I got someone to make for me. The flag I made was obscene, so I commissioned a friend to do this for me. Here's a bit of a factfile on Katkaris.

Katkaris, officially the Glorious Republic of Katkaris, is a country in the west of North Poorvhana (North America). It is the seventh-largest country by area, the third-most populous country (with over 400 million people), and the most populous dictatorship in the world. It is bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the west. It shares land borders with Payohimasa the north, the United States to the east, and Mahavana to the south. Its capital and largest metropolis is Katakar.
Aequalitas et Aequitas
I know I haven't been active for a while, but I'm posting this here anyway. This is a map me and a friend worked on. I'm currently in the process of writing a detailed timeline for it, but meh, let's just post the map here.

The whole premise is that instability in North Africa and the Middle East causes a massive exodus of refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants to North America and Europe, causing new waves of nationalism over the continents. This in turn revitalises European wars, causes a multitude of civil wars, and causes the collapse of the Warsaw Pact and NATO. This, combined with a worsened financial crisis and a general lack of empathy for governments, causes a whole load of chaos. By 2048, the date at which the map is set, the world is divided between European and American imperialism, neo-Russian communism, and small pockets of democracy.

The map was originally created for a game, but it died, and I feel like with the amount of effort I put into this, it has to be worth something. So this is my latest mini-project (not that I had any other mini-projects). Enjoy, I guess. Credit to Moxn for the cool edited Victoria 2 map.

Note: I will update the timeline... over time.


- Oil fields in the Middle East have reached critical levels. Companies start moving out of the Middle East and into Russia and Canada, for more oil.
- Saudi Arabia declares bankruptcy, and falls into chaos. It becomes the site of a new proxy war between the US and the USSR.
- Kenya and Tanzania begin negotiations to unite.
- South Yemen falls into civil war following the assassination of Ali Salim al-Beidh (General Secretary), Haidar al-Attas (President), and Yasin Said Numan (Prime Minister). With the help of NATO and North Yemen, South Yemen is invaded. NATO forces get lucky and win most of the battles in South Yemen. Most of South Yemen surrenders, and it becomes a protectorate of NATO.
- New leadership in Ethiopia starts a new campaign against the Somali government, fueling instability and chaos.
- NATO refuses to let North Yemen unite with South Yemen and create a united independent Yemen. NATO is willing to accept Yemen as a protectorate, but not as independent. Due to this, they break ties and look elsewhere. Unwilling to join the communist cause, they turn to nearby Ethiopia for help. They grow closer, and North Yemen starts supporting Ethiopia against Somalia.
- Kurdish armed forces rise up in Northern Iraq, not soon after Iraq invaded Kuwait and intervened in the Saudi civil war in support of NATO. This put NATO in a difficult position, as they cannot condone the invasion of Kuwait. However, they let it slide anyway.
- Somaliland and Puntland attempt to break away from the Somali government, only to start fighting each other.
- Ethiopia and North Yemen declare war on Djibouti, quickly taking over the small nation before the international community has any chance to respond.
- Sudan falls into a civil war between the South Sudanese, Darfurese, pro-government, and rebel forces. Egypt intervenes, but Ethiopia decides to stay neutral.
- Ghana falls into a civil war between democratic and communist forces.
- Kenya and Tanzania unite to form the East African Federation. Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi have all started legislation to join the Federation, while the Federation itself supports South Sudanese rebels in favour of South Sudanese ascension as a region of the Federation.
- North Yemen falls into civil war, as people think that communists will help Yemen unite again. These communists have a very strong presence over North Yemen, and so Ethiopia is forced to invade.
- Eritrea declares war on Ethiopia in support of North Yemeni rebels, while the Somali government capitulates in favour of the Ethiopians. Somalia is annexed into Ethiopia, although Somaliland and Puntland still fight against Ethiopia. Their independence is not recognised.

I think I've watched that video like 6 times, and I still can't believe how epic it is.
Everyone watch it.
NOTE: I normally don't do stuff like this, but this was amazing, so I had to tell everyone. Also, it's not my video. Just so you know.
