Not gonna lie, part of me is kind of hoping that some bigger countries get dragged into this war.
I may be mistaken, but wasn't Andorra absorbed by France at some point?
I couldn't find where France escalated from Kingdom to Empire, and if it's like Victoria being Empress of India, then I'm not including it.you didn't say that France was an empire and you forgot the french outpost on madagascar, except for this is a excellent map.
I doubt Andorra was ever absorbed, it was still on Antony's 1917 map.I may be mistaken, but wasn't Andorra absorbed by France at some point?
EDIT: Albania seems to be lacking the territories it recently acquired with the fall of North Italy. The south of Saxony should also now be Bavarian per post-Great war treaties (although it was only shown on Antony's Europe map, not on the world map). And, this is a personal interpretation, but I would have placed the former border of Dutch Germany (now the border between France en Westphalia if I am not mistaken in my interpretation of the post-Great War treaties) slighlty more eastward (in order to have a bigger portion of "Germany" within Dutch Germany).
Aden is French on the map. It's just small.
according to my memories France became an empire at the time when the colonies had the statue of overseas territory (Canada, Egypt and India)I couldn't find where France escalated from Kingdom to Empire, and if it's like Victoria being Empress of India, then I'm not including it.

It was in post number 2138 . And thank you for the map.On March 1904, the Queen of France declared a referendum would be submitted to the population of every land officially recognised as part of the Bourbon home and colonial sphere. The Kingdom of France, triumphant from the Great War, had accomplished its mission, but now new challenges on the world stage awaited and the millions of French living in North America, India and Egypt had proved their loyalty beyond doubt. It was time for France to decide if it truly wanted to become the Empire its conquests and victories granted it the right to be. The National Assembly would become the Imperial Assembly, and for the first time all the ‘colonial’ provinces would be truly represented.
Many high nobles gritted their teeth in anger, understanding that since the number of seats was only slightly increasing and the number of Queen-appointed nobles and clerics stayed the same, the difference had to come from somewhere and they were the prime target. They were right. Several hours-long speeches from Charlotte II and her new ministerial appointees heavily criticised the decadent behaviour certain segments of the French society who had stayed in their palaces and played the fools while millions of men bled and died in Germany, Mysore, or in Louisiana.
The referendum was more a plebiscite than a true electoral contest. Charlotte II won the public support in a thunderous ninety-five percent of the votes, and on May 1905, became officially Empress Charlotte I of France.

When Louis XVIII was acclaimed by the crowd massing out of the cathedral, he presented himself as King of Andorra, bringing the semi-autonomy of the encircled Princedom to an end.
After a bit a searching, it appears Andorra is indeed French now.The meeting between the two Empresses took place in the town of Andorra, which for some time had achieved some fame by being an independent principality between the two realms before it was encircled and finally annexed.
There was some problems with two French companies involved in the fur trade in the past, and some administrators back in France wanted to squeeze some money...and a new province was created. For reasons which have everything to do with politics, even the ending of some questionable hunting and trade practises in the region have been unable to end the existence of the province

I prefered to mark it as territorial. It's underdevelopped snow, I'm marking it like the Egyptian deserts.After a bit a searching, it appears Andorra is indeed French now.
On another subject, you might want to color Cartier as core. Or not. It depends whether you show the official status or something more akin to the actual developpement of the place:
Are we to understand that the Anarchists are striking as far as the UPNG, or did the French subrepticely snatched their former colony back while the author was looking in the other direction?Their thousands of potential recruits were on their way to Guyana, or other inhospitable prisons
