Map Monday: Khanates by Bruce Munro

This week's Map Monday has to go to Bruce Munro's "Khanates":
The timeline is a mash-up between an old GURPS scenario and another alternate history map where every European country is recreated in North America. In this timeline, the Mongols do better and last longer, but as we all know, nothing last forever. The Western (Nestorian) Khanates are at war with the Eastern (Bhuddist) Khanates, while the people they once subjugated watch with interest. You can see the quick and dirty description here.

As usual for a Munro map their is a lot of detail and dry wit. I highly recommend you take the time to read all of the text. Honorable mentions this week go out to Gian's "Sovereign League of North America" and this map featuring the second-largest religion in each state from The Washington Post. If you want to submit a map for consideration for the next Map Monday, email me at ahwupdate at gmail dot com with your map attached and a brief description in the body of the email.
