Hail, all! In my spare time (rare as it is), I've been attempting to write, but my tendency to procrastinate has forced me to create a map for my story, Chronicles of a President
lines represent international boundaries, such as between two major countries.
symbolizes the North American Union, a country composed of many nations (some not North American), chiefly the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Israel. Capital is Washington, D.C.
, in this map, stands for the European Union. Their lands range from the Falkland Islands to Scandinavia, and from Greenland to Turkey. Brussels acts as the capital.
The Russian Federation is Green
in this map. Essentially a neo-Soviet Union, save for a different form of government. Moscow, comrades, serves as the seat of government for the Russian Federation.
stands for the United Islamic Empire, formed from nations with primarily Islamic populations. With territories ranging from North Africa to Pakistan, the UIE has put aside age-long religious differences for a greater goal: surviving the economic crisis that gripped the world (especially OPEC nations, which lost billions in revenue after the Depression of 2012). Dubai is the current capital of the UIE.
Formed from the remaining African nations, Orange
represents the Central African Union, whereas the Gray
stands for the South African Union. Each Union was formed after the Depression, as economic survival was tantamount to survival in every sense of the word. The CAU's government changes yearly, but, currently, in 2040, it calls Freetown its capital. In the South African Union, the capital is centered in the city of Johannesburg.
Claiming South America, parts of Central America, and a few islands in the South Pacific, the South American Union is represented by the color Brown
. Formed after the Great War of South America in 2021, the SAU is run by an oligarchical military dictatorship. Brasília is the capital of the South American Union.
Finally, battling for dominance in Southeast Asia, the Sino-Asian Union (SAU) and the Indian-Pacific Union (IPU) wage political war, with the SAU represented by the color Red
, whose capital is located in Beijing. Meanwhile, the IPU is represented on maps by the color Yellow
, who have dual capitals in the cities of New Delhi and Canberra. Notable members of the SAU are Japan, China, and South Korea (forcibly captured in the East Asian Skirmish of 2018). The IPU claims major member nations of Singapore, Australia, India, Malaysia, and New Zealand.
It should be noted that, though colored gray, Antarctica has no political affiliation (no one lives there permanently).
As the chapters progress, and the War begins, I'll update the map to show 'progress.'
Hope you enjoy,
