I agree. The original map also had California independent (but not Texas), Rio Grande do Sul (neo-Riograndense Republic I guess), Azerbaiyan with Armenia and chunks of Western Iran, a neo-Khanate (or Republic) of Kazan, and Ukraine and Belarus entirely partitioned between Poland, Russia, and Turkey.I'm not sure if Kazakhstan would really own it. I think it would just be some Ural state.
Also, didn't you cringe when seeing Asia dominated by China or the African borders? I'm glad you removed sone of the map's wanks.
