The focus for the next few chapters will be on the Equatorial Revolutionary War, so aside from Southeast Asia, none of those regions will be the focus of an update anytime soon. With that being said, however, I plan to hop over to Russia after I’m done with the ERW, so Scandinavia and Central Asia may get get some attention in that chapter.By any chance will there be an update on southeast Asia, Scandinavia and Oman, Yemen, Persia, and Central Asia?
There are some minor border changes (most notably, OTL Guatemala is a part of Mexico), but the borders will eventually change there. The Kingdom of New Granada isn’t done expanding its sphere of influence just yet.It's interesting that Mexico has the same shape as otl Mexico, will that change in the future?
Good question. Last time I shed some light on Jamaica, it was an independent republic formed via a slave revolt against Concordia. Since then, the country has been doing well for itself and is especially close to New Africa, however, the country remains highly agrarian and has yet to meaningfully industrialize.What happening in jamaica right now?
Even in a TL where they are born in a completely different country, some people never change.God damn it Breckinridge, even in this ATL you break stuff in the name of racial supremacy.
The main reasoning for this is that there is a significant factions of Revolutionary Burrites who support the abolition of the Native African absolute monarchies in favor of various replacement structures, be that provincehood, autonomous constitutional monarchies, or something else entirely, so aligning with Tuinstra is viewed as a potential risk by the protectorates with regards to maintaining their government structures. With that being said, all of the protectorates will have to sooner or later join a side in the Equatorial Revolutionary War, whether by choice or not.I'm surprised none of the protectorate kingdoms sided with Tuinstra, given how the north seems to hate the native africans.
In terms of naval strength, the south currently has the upper hand given that the provinces it has inherited are more industrialized and well established ports were significant naval forces are concentrated. The pro-Breckinridge territories with significant naval capacities are currently Austropolis, Edwardland, and New Hanover, and while this shouldn't be discounted, combined naval forces in Liberia, Zomerland, Indiana, Zululand, Fort Jaager, and even the Timor Territory give Tuinstra the advantage. As for industry, the disparity in terms of industry between the two sides is more or less comparable to the American Civil War, with the more developed and urbanized southern provinces being comparable to the Union and the more agrarian and sparsely populated northern provinces being comparable to the Confederacy, although it should be noted that both Edwardland and New Hanover have industrial capacities more comparable with the south.How powerful is the southern navy? Without one, the north can never be reconquered. Speaking of which, how much industry does each side have?
Because the Cape Colony is never annexed by the British ITTL, no, the Boers as we know them never existed. With that being said, the Dutch-descended residents of the Cape and later independent United Dominion of Riebeeckia are culturally very similar to the Boers of OTL, and a number of OTL leaders of the Boer republics are prominent politicians within Riebeeckia. I'd recommend reading chapters 17 and 18 if you're interested on what the people who would've been the Boers in OTL are up to ITTL.Question, did the Boers ever exist and if they did, did they rebel like in our timeline?
Azania and the Holy Dominion just speed-ran WW1 doctrine developemt by fighting an ACW-equivalent in the jungles and deserts of Africa, with all the brutality that implies, and it is only the beginning? This is going to be a bloody timeline alright. But Burrite Democracy seems it is indeed a blessed thing, and if its light will truly shine across the equator at the end of all this fighting, it will be worth it. I am looking forwards to seeing just how the war escalates.This was not merely a typical civil war, but rather the prelude to a wider conflict spanning the entirety of the Indian Ocean and the great powers of her waves.
