If anything isn't a big part of this TL that what is considered the "West" or modern nations greatly expanded to include Rhomania, the Ottomans, Ethiopia, Eastern Europe, and the Marinids since they all somewhat stay in contact and don't fall behind Western and Central Europe like OTL? Hell one could also include Mexico, Vijayanagara, Champa, and Japan, maybe even Korea and Kongo, to that list. To the point that the West as a distinction is very threadbare and meaningless outside of racial purists and supremists like those out of the Triunes.I rather dislike the whole trope of "the West" as some kind of monolith, there's some pretty substantial distinctions to be made in terms of the political culture and systems between France, the United States, Germany, and Sweden, four countries which are democratic and nominally part of "the West". If Rhomania ended up democratizing, I imagine the specific political culture would reflect the local history and sensibilities. I also wouldn't exactly call Rhomania ITTL conservative; in some respects it has a rather radical culture, which has spurred both innovation and a proclivity to infighting. I could easily see them being the first to enact women's suffrage, but the last to enact truly universal suffrage with no weighting based on education.
