We'll begin with something which is currently on the top.

Although rebels were able to easily take control over Tripolitania and Fezzan, they were unable to control Senussi dynasty stronghold in Cyrenaica.

Senussi Kingdom of Cyrenaica

United States of America

The United States, a nation that hugs the Eastern coastline of the United States, was formed in 1776, after declaring its independence from Britain. Later fights would prove less than successful, with the War of 1812 resulting in a stalemate and the Anglo-American War in the 1850s resulting in the recognition of California and Oregon as British territories. Possessing around 200 million people, the United States has a very large, vibrant economy and is a leading member of the North American Union. However, true to its principles of non-interventionism abroad and possessing very stable neighbors, it has a very small military, and has not fought a true "conflict" since the brief Rebellion of 1861.

Dominion of Canada

The Dominion of Canada is the main remnant of British colonies in the Americas, and are loyal to the crown of Great Britain. Possessing a population of 90 million people and stretching from Newfoundland to the Hawaiian Islands, it has great ethnic diversity, fueled by Chinese immigration in the late 1800s as well as current immigration from Mexico. However, despite its seclusion, historically it is more assertive abroad, participating in all of Great Britain's current conflicts.

Republic of Texas

The Republic of Texas was convened in the 1830s after winning independence from Mexico. Initially comprised of American settlers, the United States' unwillingness to annex them led to its continued autonomy. With only a population of 20 million, it is far smaller than its neighbors. Its people are fierce patriots, and think of their country as a main center of civilization.

Empire of Japan

Alaska, owned by the Japanese Empire, is a main source of oil for the otherwise resource-deprived superpower. Possessing 270 million citizens, it is the world's largest economy. The Japanese bought Alaska and Kamchatka from Russia, who were eager to sell the land for profit.

I'm pissed it's a tiny ass map, though I'll try to make a bigger one:



United States of America
Formed by the northern free states and 2 slave states in 1787 after southern delegates walked out, facing the north's stubborn opposition to their proposals for a slave-dominated society. Dominated by New England's Anglophile commercial elite, westward expansion led to a shift in power towards more egalitarian westerners in the 1840s who supported further expansion. Borders with Canada were fixed through various treaties between independence and the 1870s. The US became a close ally of the German Empire after the 1870s though remained neutral in WW1 and sought to assert itself independently of European powers in the 1920s. The capital is Philadelphia.

Confederate States of America
Formed by the southern slave states in 1787, the CSA was a slave and plantation-dominated economy well into the 1880s when slavery was abolished but remained an agrarian society well into the 1900s. It became a close ally of Britain starting in the 1850s and remained Britain's American ally until the 1930s. Britain and the CSA went to war with Spain in the 1890s, resulting in Confederate conquest of Cuba which became a plantation territory until statehood in 1992. Civil rights for blacks were progressively introduced in the 70s, though inequality is rampant and institutionalized racism against Hispanics remains in place. The capital is Richmond.

République du Québec/Bas-Canada
Formed following the victorious Patriots Rebellion in 1838-1841 and known as Lower Canada until the 1910s, Quebec was originally led by a liberal rebel elite until the clerical conservative opposition took power in the 1860s following controversial anti-clerical legislation. Conservatives of various shades but always close to the RCC dominated politics until the 1960s, after which a new, modernizing left took power and managed to turn Quebec into the continent's most left-wing country at least on economic issues. It has always been a close ally of the US and is generally close to France. The Labrador boundary is still a touchy issue. The capital is Quebec.

Republic of Canada
Formed following the victorious Upper Canada Rebellion in 1838-1841 (along with Quebec), Canada resisted annexationist pressures at home and abroad and weathered the 1850s-1860s as an independent nation. Under the influence of the expansionist Clear Grits, Canada expanded westward through the purchase of the HBC Ruperts Land in the 1880s. Canada is a close ally of the US and relations with Britain improved in the 1890s. The capital is Toronto/York.

Cascadia
Cascadia is a Commonwealth dominion covering the former British colonies of Vancouver Island, BC and Oregon. Following the defeat of the British in the Canadian rebellions, the Pacific coast with its lucrative mining, lumber and fishing industry became the centre of British influence until the 3 colonies were granted dominion status in 1872. It later expanded northwards and the HBC land was split between Cascadia and Canada in the 1880s. The capital is Victoria.

Dominion of Deseret
Mormon-dominated country founded by LDS missionaries in the 1850s which has managed to survive thanks to Cascadian and US assurance. The capital is SLC.

California Republic
Founded by American explorers in Mexico in the 1850s, California won its independence from Mexico following a war in which it benefited from US support. It has since remained a close ally of the US. California's economy boomed with mining (gold) and trade with Asia and has expanded since then to become a major power on the Pacific Coast. The capital is San Francisco.

Maritime Union
A Commonwealth dominion, the Maritime Union was formed in 1867 through the alliance of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Cape Breton and later PEI and was granted dominion status. An economically weak state, it has benefited from British support and trade as well as a close relation with both the US and CSA.

Newfoundland
Newfoundland (and Labrador), a Commonwealth dominion, gained independence from Britain in 1949 and has since been a weak country suffering from emigration and declining fish stocks. British, Maritime and US support has been crucial for its survival against a more or less hostile Quebec which always seeks to reduce Newfoundland's share of Labrador to the original Coasts of Labrador territory.

(Alaska is Russian, Puerto Rico is a Commonwealth dominion)
