Map Monday: L'union Fait La Force​ by rvbomally

Since peanut butter met chocolate, never have two good things formed such a perfect union...until now.
This is "L'union Fait La Force"​ by Rvbomally. It is a cover of Ephraim Ben Raphael's Empire of Haiti scenario from "An Examination of Extra-Universal Systems of Government". For those who don't know, it is a series of short scenarios told from the perspective of a traveler interviewing people from different timelines about their form of government. If you are a busy person like me, these short scenarios are a great way to get some quality online alternate history in small, easy to digest pieces.

Although it came originally with a map that focused on the Caribbean Sea and the surrounding regions, this cover by Rvbomally shows us what is going on the rest of the world. It has nice, soft colors and Munroist style annotations, but without the text explosion that Bruce is known for. Its a fun map that adds to Ephraim's original scenario without replacing it entirely, so definitely go check out the description attached to it in the original post.

Honorable mention this week goes out to "Postapo North America" by theSuricateProject.
