1984 revision map by GeneralHelghast 1984 revision map by GeneralHelghast
Here is my revision of George Orwell's 1984, where three superstates: Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia have divided the post-apocalyptic world after a Third World War, resulting from a Nazi victory in WW II. I admired Orwell because I feel that fascism, communism, and feudalism should be wiped out not by violence, but by free thought and equality. And to see people hate civilization and use the book as an excuse to divide up the world is indeed sick and twisted, just like how the three police-states were born. Here are the countries in my personal opinion.

Oceania
Government: Oligarchical-Feudalist State (cause everything is miserable and bombed out)
Capital: Possibly New Orleans, New York, or Toronto
Territories: Americas, Australia, New Zealand, British Isles, Antarctica
Ideology: INGSOC, Feudalism, Socialism, Celtic Nationalism (Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Briton)
Anthem: [link]

Eurasia
Government: Neo-Bolshevik state (de jure)
Fascist-military dictatorship (de facto)
Capital: Berlin
Territories: USSR, Europe (except British Isles), Middle East, and Africa
Ideology: Nazism, German Aryanism, Fascism, expansionism, Anti-Celtism, Anti-Zionism, Anti-Semitism
Anthem: [link]

Eastasia
Government: Communist Government (much like north Korea and Communist China)
Capital: Shanghai
Territories: India, Afghanistan, East Asia, Japan, and most of the Pacific
Ideology: Communism, Death worship, Pan-Asianism, Imperialism, Chinese-Nationalism
Anthem:[link]

I'm quite certain Orwell's 1984 not only stated that this was  post-WWII (as in, the Nazis had already fallen) but that Goldstein's manifesto stated Eurasia was but an extension of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics into all of continental Europe.

Oceania doesn't have an ideology. It's all just power for sadism's sake

I personally thought of Eurasia as an expanded USSR, but I like seeing other interpretations. I think you've done a very good job here with this.

You decided not to leave the neutral, contested territory that existed in 1984?

Why would Oceania control Antarctica? There's nothing down there but Penguins and Polar Bears.

Quote from the "Ingsoc" article on wikipedia: Neo-Bolshevism is the ideology of Eurasia, Soviet-conquered Europe. Death Worship (Obliteration of the Self) is the Chinese name for the ideology of Eastasia. The ruling oligarchies of the three superstates are aware that their ideologies are philosophically indistinguishable, a fact kept from, and denied by, their populaces via doublethink. Said denial, practiced in each state, and the mutual vilification of the enemy state, permits perpetual war among them. Without said war, the lower classes would have no focus for the hatred of, and triumph over, the enemy, with which their Inner parties dominate them and find excuses for their atrocities.

How come a Neo-BOLSHEVIKs be Nazis?

They are Nazis and are yet seen as Neo-Bolsheviks in this version of 1984 is because America and Britain were humiliated and defeated by Nazi Germany during WW II, so INSOG formed Oceania and made propaganda to make Eurasia seem communist. The Nazis took over Russia and then formed Eurasia to dominate the world. Ultimately, this led into potential war between the two. Oceania made Eurasia look like communist within the propaganda because Oceania wants revenge.

I really don't understand
If Nazis won, communism won't be regarded as "evil" ideology
So Eurasia would be just Neo-Fascism

But it's map

they're trying to. But what makes it harder for them is that East Asia's at war with them too. So this war is live 1 vs 1 vs 1.

Eurasia formed from the Soviet Union expanding and taking over all of Europe with it's Neo-Bolsehvist ideology (basically Communism/Stalinism advanced from the Bolshevik Party of Russia) after Europe is weakened. Britain for fear of survival co-ordinates a merge between the British Empire and the United States, eventually descending into a terrifying police state governed by IngSoc (Newspeak for English Socialism, likely not actual socialism but socialism in the sense of National Socialism). Finally, Eastasia was the last power block to form completely from either China merging with Imperial Japan, or more likely due to Sino-Japanese relations, Japanese dominated over China and Asia-Pacific. This superstate has an almost psudeo-religious governing ideology being Death-Worship or Immolation of the Self (reference to how many Imperial Japanese would gladly die for the glory of their Emperor) and is a big player not because of size of the state but because of the massive population (definitely not Communist).

Just wanted to point out a few things, I really like 1984 so have read a lot into :) Sorry if I have misunderstood and this is your own version of the events, if so ignore me and good map :)

Where would be the best place to live? Eurasia in racist and nazi, Eastasia is totalitarian like Mao's China and NK so there must be tiny food rations and famine and if Oceania is as worse as in Orwell's book then I don't wanna like on that planet.

I'll probably choose Eurasia, I am white and non-jewish and they have food and nationaism  instead of famine, total control like in Oceania and EastAsia who are pretty much North Korean

I see. Doesn't quite make sense though that the Nazis would use "Neo-Bolshevikism" as their official name.

George Orwell was a socialist, and I think you've got the wrong definition of communism. You're thinking of Stalinism. Oh, and in the book, Oceania controls southern Africa while the rest of Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia/Indonesia are all perpetually contested over by the three superpowers.
