Map Monday: Confederation of Nations by Rvbomally

I hope you guys enjoyed my interview with Rvbomally. I actually have another of his maps that I wanted to cover for Map Monday. Check out his "Confederation of Nations" map below:
This is one of those maps where the concept of it intrigues me more than the artwork. In this alternate/future history, the Nationalists defeat the Communists in the Chinese Civil War, leading to a very different Cold War that eventually births the "Confederation of Nations". This world government dominates most of the planet, but there are still a few hold outs who maintain their independence. I like this scenario because world governments are either dismissed as highly implausible or categorized with the worst kind of conspiracy theories. Nevertheless, I feel this trope does not get enough coverage and I like it when more alternate historians cover it.

Honorable mention this week go out to Lynn Davis' "Workers of the World, Unite!" and don't forget to check out New England in Crimea. If you want to submit a map 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.
