France Ascendant by Chanimur France Ascendant by Chanimur
A simple-ish map in the style of [link]
(Not that there's anything simplistic about his maps!)

This world probably (?) stems from France doing MUCH better in the mid to late 1700s. I don't have a whole lot worked out for a timeline, since this was done mainly for fun, but some things on the map include Spain not having any colonies anymore (lost 'em all to Britain in a war), Britain doing away with their monarchy completely and reorganizing as a republic; Virginia and Romania are rather repressive theocracies; Russia has turned their attention more eastwards than westwards, and firmly control their American possessions and many Pacific islands.

Nice! Looks like Spain ended up with the short end of the colonial stick in this world. This is the sort of alternate timeline I really appreciate, no conservative "stick to what we know"-ishness about it.

I am flattered by the reference. Another nice one: is that Dutch Belgium? One would think Mighty France would want it for themselves, or at least neutralized...

Yeah, the Dutch are stronger here, and are part of a very tangled and complex alliance system that has so far prevented the French from running over them.

Iy does look pretty professional. And I also like the weird Prussian colonies.

I imagine we have a three way great game here between Russia, France and Britain.
