During the 1930s the UK realised the possibility that the empire might come to an end and so began giving parts of the empire increased autonomy. In 1937 India was granted dominion status placating the nationalists and slowing India’s eventual independence until 1954 and it becoming a republic until 1960.
Emigration to South Africa was encouraged which prevented Afrikaans imposing republicanism and apartheid.
After WWII ended the United Kingdom started working closely with France. During the Suez Crisis by nations cooperated closely, with France deciding the join the Commonwealth.
At the same time the UK continued to federated colonies creating the West Indies Federation, Central African Federation and East African Federation.
The UK managed to find a middle way between white-dominated states and chaotic black republics, creating an Africa dominated by pro-British/French independent Commonwealth realms.
Through the 20th century NATO, the EU and AU all formed. Eventual all these organizations started to merge with the Commonwealth until in 1994 they were all united in the Euro-African Empire. The Empire is a Coregency with Elizabeth II being crowned Empress of Europe and Amha Selassie being crowned Emperor of Africa.
The Empire had quietly been developing though the cold war and emerged as communism fell, and quickly surpassed the USA becoming the worlds sole superpower between 2020-2050 and remains the most powerful to this day.

In the Middle East as the oil started to run out, most Arab nations saw the writing on the wall and federated under the flag of the Arab revolt. Saudi Arabia refused and suffered poverty and a civil war.

At the end of the 1980’s and start of the 1990’s communism around the world started to falter and fall. the Soviet Union was gone by 1991. Central Asia formed its own union, while Japan managed to seize Karafuto which was being held by anti-reformists. Belarus experienced a short and painful independence of poverty and dictatorships before being reabsorbed into Russia.

In the PRC discontent spread. In 1992 the south revolted, quickly followed by East Turkestan and Tibet. Support from Taiwan and Japan spilt China in two and gave Turkestan and Tibet their independence.

The North remained communist had has suffered a slow decline ever since. The south threw off the socialist shackles and joined custom union with Taiwan and Japan. East Turkestan joined the Central Asian Federation while Tibet joined SAARC.

Father south, South East Asia was uniting in the ASEAN and Austrasia united into the ANZAC Federation. Relations were cordial for a while, however Indonesia wanted to consolidate its borders as Independence movements sprang up. Indonesia planned to annex all of Timor and New Guinea. Within ASEAN Malaysia, Brunei, the Philippines and Singapore formed an opposition to this. Burma which had its own eternal ethnic conflicts joined the Pro-war block. Laos and Cambodia were also joined after some deliberation. Vietnam had been thinking of joining the anti-war group until the assassination of the prime minister, when it joined the pro-war group. Thailand then had no choice and ASEAN and the ANZACF went to war. Between 2014 and 2016 ASEAN won stunning victories, however as she started to threaten New Caledonia the Euro-African Empire came to Austrasia’s aid. The once mighty ASEAN navy was battered and the pro-war group seceded. Threatened with attack from all sides, ASEAN surrendered in 2017 despite Indonesian protests and reformed in 2019.

Since the end of the cold war the USA’s supremacy started to dwindle. By 2024 it unified with Canada and Mexico, which was a unpopular move creating unrest across the nation, particularly in the American South, Quebec and Chiapas. To distract the public the new government declared the nation an empire and randomly selected a young, healthy and intelligent person to become the emperor or empress, crowning Emperor Patrick I of the North American Empire on July the 2nd. The position was created to be sacrificial, with the forced abdication of the Emperor to be held up as an example of how the NAU/NAE was listening to its citizens.

This is not what happened with Patrick the First. He was created as a powerless figurehead, and technically remained one however he travel extensively in the NAE, giving speeches and meeting with people opposed to the union, even unescorted with rebel leaders several times. He was the first to propose the internal borders were divided. His great popularity lead to the Crown Loyalist party being formed to carry out his ideas, one of which was to reshuffle the NAE’s internal borders to give groups more autonomy, while increasing cohesion in the NAE. By the time he died in 2082 America was again a superpower and the Mountain West was named after him. His daughter Empress Nicole I is just as popular and the Crown has long outlived the politicians who created it.

Most of the people of my nation would hate this outcome, i'm arguing a lot with hungarian EU-haters, they keep telling, Hungary would be better by himself, and Europe should only work together as allied, minor states, mainly by regions, as Central, East, South, West and North Europe...

The world is heading to a state, where former Colonies become superpowers, so small nations can't rule world economy, can't compete them in military power. If Europe wants to avoid be colonized (i don't believe in brainwashed migration-invasion, the future could be more rough, with economical and militaristic wars for food, water and territory, where China, India and other 3rd world superpowers have to fight global warming and sea level rising), they have to unite, and find a way to benefit from imigrants, since the European population is rapidly decreasing.

I know it's hard to accept for some of us, but cultural/racial-genetic/religional mixing can be useful, if we find the common understanding.

Nice map, wish You a nice day from Hungary!

So is America a Constitutional monarchy, or just a monarchy?
lamnay Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011
Wow this is old, constitutional, but the monarch is more than a figurehead.
USOtaku013666 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011
Oh I get it.

Seems like quite a decent place to live. Fantastic when you take a look at the sad state of today's world. Patrick the First and the NAE is what we need.

That's kind of how I envisioned it. Cheers for the nice comment.

What's going on in Korea, Mongolia and S.America in this version of the world? Are they isolationists? How are they prospering?
lamnay Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2009
Well United Korea is doing rather well. They would be doing better if they joined the East Asian Union but old bitterness about Japanese annexation means their is lots of opposition to this.

Mongolia is doing ok but North China, Russia and the Central Asian Federation all vie for control of Mongloia. Mongolia is not ready to surrender it's sovereignty and plays the powers off each other, much like Thailand did with the British and the French in the 19th century. They do favour the CAF though.

I'll assume you meant Central America, which is also stuck between several powers. Most favour either the NAE or West Indian Federation but some favour the more expansionist Union of South American Nations.
