Here is an alternate history map when an alternate America was founded in 1830, after a failed American Revolution and a Napoleonic Victory in Waterloo, and begins adopting the ideals of the French, British, Austrian, Portuguese , Spanish, and Dutch empires. It is also when the Absorption of India by the Chinese had ultimately led to a global conflict with this fictional empire.
Red is the Imperial American Dominion, commonly known as the "Imperial Dominion" or the "Empire". During a second American Revolution under a wealthy Austro-Dutch immigrant, the Dominion liberated, unified, and annexed many colonies within the Americas from the European powers, Britain, France, and Spain. In 1840, when the Austrians colonized southern Africa, the Dominion drove the Austrians out of their colony and claimed it as their own. Unlike other empires, it supports racial equality and is a complete absolute monarchy that sees non-Catholic religions, including Paganism, Protestant, Judaism, and Islam, as "heresy". The majority of its population are made up of Whites and blacks. They are ruled by an Emperor and his advisor, the Prime Minister, who leads the Imperial Army during various wars. In 1870, the Dominion conquered Thailand, Indochina, Korea, and the Japanese island due to a huge population growth. By the year 1987, during the Third Afro-Dominion War, most of the African continent was conquered, leaving the French officials of the European Commonwealth powerless against the Dominion.
Blue is the European Commonwealth, which not one nation or empire, but rather an alliance between smaller nations. They have only a few colonies in Africa, but are yet a strong and worthy opponent to the Dominion. They are also responsible for its rise to power. They are the most advanced of the superpowers.
Green is the Iranian Empire, which is a colonial theocracy under a sultan. Due to its mountains and desert environment, it is the only Middle Eastern state independent from Dominion rule. They control most of the Pacific and are a former ally of the Dominion until the Invasion of Arabia in 1856.
Orange is the Chinese Hegemony, a constitutional republic under a long line of emperors, but is mainly ruled by a chairman. After India's annexation under China, the Hegemony enslaves those native of the region, creating a huge labor force, along with an advantage to build up their economy. It is also a strong enemy of both the Dominion and Commonwealth. Ever since the conquest of Japan, the Chinese worried much that they are next on the list.
