Epilogue: state of the World 1820
Some more pics showing the political situation in the most interesting areas.
Europe and North Africa
We have already commented the superiority of France, Spain and Apulia, a sort of "Holy Alliance" of liberal states well radicated in the Western and Central part of the continent. On the other side, the league between the two most reactionary countries, Austria and Russia. Squeezed inbetween, the Kingdom of Lithuania, which has been able to absorbe the "Polish twin" in the '600s and survive unharmed until present days. Mono-cultural states comprise England, Scotland, Netherlands, Brandeburg and Ukraine. Sweden and Portugal have managed to build somewhat sizeable domains in Scandinavia and Morocco. North African states are almost all Ottoman vassals.
A messy patchwork of European colonies (can count Denmark, Turkey, Portugal, Sweden, France, England and Netherlands ... probably even Lithuania in out-of-range Somalia!). Anyway, Mali, Kongo and Zimbabwe got their merited access to sea. White provinces on the Indian Ocean belong to Ak Koyunlu (see next pic).
Middle East and Southern Asia
Ak Koyunlu: the real surprise of the game, spanning from Zanzibar to Azerbaijan, from Baghdad to the Indus River. The Mughals are losing ground after the expansion spree of the previous centuries, whereas other two interesting countries are Bengal and Dai Viet. Some European colonial activity in Southern India.
Not realling astonishing, apart the almost-real colonisation of Indonesia from those evil Dutch!
Equally distributed among 5: Apulia, England, France, Spain and USA. In their shrinking lands resist the brave Iroquois, Dakotas and Navahos. Louisiana is an Apulian dependency.
... finally, South America
Yellow-green-orange as usual, but at least with some interesting developments: an untouched independent Catholic Inca Empire, a Portuguese Central America plus some rebel republics (Colombia, La Plata)
