British Empire map by Duke-Nidhoggr British Empire map by Duke-Nidhoggr
A map of the British Empire if the UK defeated Washington and kept increasing in size, and there were no World Wars. The United Nations was never formed, and colonialism is perfectly legal under international law. The traitor Gandhi was hanged, and India mostly consists of tea fields. No nation dares to resist the Empire, and Britain's navy is present in every sea. Most colonies have a population that is at least 30% of British descent. China has been divided since 1986 due to British funded independence movements in Tibet, Mongolia and Manchuria, which the London government funded due to China's occupation of Hong Kong. Argentina invaded the Falklands in 1990, and Britain not only repelled them but also occupied Tierra del Fuego, and settled with British people. Britain gained the colonies of The Netherlands, Belgium and Portugal, after they brought the countries under their control as puppet states. The American Colonies have been self governing since 1922, but are still proud of their British heritage. Since British victory in the British-Danish War, Greenland has been under British control.

Not sure if it is the description that people are hissing over, or the picture itself? It won't load for me, so i'm going to guess the description. 

Rather excessive ideology of patriotism, but interesting nonetheless.

I'll be honest here, this is a terrible alternate history. There's not one thing this does right. The scenario's absurd, every border is wrong, it's not aesthetically pleasing, and everything about it is just bad. I would have listed out every single thing wrong with this, but that would be literally everything on the map.

The situation of Argentina is not correct. Argentina was an "unofficial" part of the British Empire until General Perón take the goverment in 1945. So in your alternative reality Argentina should be part of the empire.

Oh really? I knew Argentina went through a "I like British" scene and mimicked Britain in the 1950s with food, drink, building style but, not that it was an unofficial part of Britain.

I am also curious what this flag, in your opinion or otherwise, may look like.

I know this is really long after posting, but I just have so many damn questions.
Why does "European Russia" have the exact borders of modern Belarus and Ukraine? And why isn't the Russian Republic called European Russia when it's the one that takes up the region called European Russia?
If there was no WW1, Why did the Middle East get carved up along more or less the same borders as in OTL?
Is Indonesia a part of the British Raj? Why?
How did Britain manage to take control of so much land, when they couldn't even hold on to it in OTL?
Why does France still own Indochina when Britain seems to have absolute dominance in the region and has already taken regions of China that were under French infulence in OTL?
Why and how did Georgia and Armenia fuse into one country?
What's the country in between Georg-menia and Turkey?
Why do so many borders (eastern Europe, Socialist Central Asia, the Middle East) conform so much to OTL borders that would've never been drawn in this TL?
I think that'd be that. This is all seems a bit imperialist-wanky (which in itself is fine), but I'd like to hear if you have an explanation to these things.

You must really really really like Britain eh. Also European Russia as Ukraine is wrong. Ukraine is just Ukraine and what you have as the Russian republic is the literal European Russia. Republic of Sibir is Asian Russia and I don't really see a Republic of Sibir forming unless it's ruled by Russians since there are too many ethnic groups there.

Sorry, but I just took Russian history class and that point irked me a little, so I couldn't resist.

Ghandi was peaceful though, wasn't he? He even pointed out the truth about Christians who weren't living out their faith like they should have. Don't get me wrong, I am a Christian, but I myself like Ghandi wish that the whole church would live up the Scripture. Plus why should people be hanged and denied representation? That would have made Britain like Nazi Germany, and not so much the great civilization it really was.

Sorry man, but you are totally wrong! Colombia, Ecuador & Venezuela have never been a part of the British Empire (Despite many people in these countries wished that) These countries were part of the Spanish Empire. From the beginning of XVI to XIX century.
Also, The central region of America (today Panama, Costa Rica, etc) have never been a part of the British Empire neither.
Dominican Republic Neither.

Duke,

 if you don't insist that your map is an actual political map of the world , then I can agreed with you to a great extend . I also have two questions for you ;

1. Which " Conference of Sarajevo" you referring to  that made Poland become a country ?
2. WHY didn't you indicated in your map "Socialist Central Asia " as Khazar Khaganate , which is the correct political, social, religious and geographical indication of the aria and it's the real  reason behind the creation of Poland ?

If Britain only stayed in the Philippines beyond 1764 (the Philippines under Spanish Empire was attacked by the British due to the Seven Years War), then we would have at least a better situation than being stuck under Spain until 1898.

There is no reason that central asia would be united and not part of russia, unless they were under british control because of some change you made during the great game. Also, it's not like keeping the thirteen colonies would have really helped British Colonization in the Americas, especially not in south america. Also, you didn't even mention the Napoleonic wars effect on europe, why does the holy roman empire still exist, but spain lost most of it's colonies. Why didn't tsarist russia colonize siberia, that happened in the 1500's, long before any changes you made. The HRE would probably control territories in Africa similar to the ones controlled by germany, because of the conference of berlin. The Ottoman Empire would still exist if it wasn't for WWI, and it definitely wouldn't be partitioned by france and britain. Why is Poland a country if WWI didn't happen? Southeast Europe is all wrong, just a mess. You need to read a 6th grade history book, OP

I really shouldn't be explaining this to such a prick, but I will. The Central Asian states were part of Russia, before they became independent in after Karl Marx (a philosopher who advocated communism) was exiled to Central Asia, and helped them become independent and communist during the British-Russian War, which also resulted in the loss of the Republic of Sibr, and the creation of the pro-British Russian Republic. The Thirteen colonies helped because American soldiers provided a huge army that crushed revolutionary France. That's why the Napoleonic Wars never happened and there is still a Holy Roman Empire. Poland is a country as a result of the Conference of Sarajevo, which decided to divide up war torn Eastern Europe by ethno-linguistic groups. You say I need to read a history book? I can recommend two books for you. The first is a book on English grammar, as yours is simply awful. The other is a book on good manners, of which you have none.

It's a very good map, but i think it needed in little correction. For example: why Caucas is Russian? In this place must be three states: Cossackia (may be as a autonomous part of Ukraine), Kalmykia and Caucasian Imamate. That's all as a british protectorate. And why only Tierra del Fuego is British? All Patagonia may be a new dominion even in 19 century.

In Africa- where is Golden Coast, Sierra Leone and Gambia?

And i think that Iceland may be English.

And Anglo-Corsican Kingdom too

Hmmm, interesting scenario. How big is the resistance within dominions and colonies, because even with an British heritage of just 30% that leaves 70 % of natives there.

What's the relationship between the British empire, Brazil and the Holy Roman Empire and how much of a greater power is the last one?

:iconduke-nidhoggr:
Duke-Nidhoggr Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The British Empire is so powerful that, while resistance does exist, it means nothing. The 30% is only in India and the African nations. Places like Australia, New Zealand and Canada are nearly 100%. The American Liberation Front, the Indian National Army and the African Independence Association are examples of resistance groups.

Britain is so powerful that it's dangerous for countries to openly be against Britain's policies. However, their is alleged underground support by France for the American Liberation Front and the African Independence Association. Britain is allied with two other powerful nations. This is known as the Conquerors Alliance (duke-nidhoggr.deviantart.com/a…. People are very anxious to avoid a war with the Conquerors Alliance, as it would result in an immense loss of life.

3. Where is the Capital of the Holy Roman Empire?

Duke-Nidhoggr Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
In answer:
1) The Conquerors Alliance agreed that the Ottoman Empire was too destructive to their territories. The Ottoman Empire fiercely contested with Russia for the Caucasian states, and was also backing the Indian National Army. Britain also wanted the African areas of the Ottoman Empire. Britain and France fielded a rare alliance and, along with Russia, took control over the states of the Ottoman Empire. Greece also took some of the western area of Turkey. 
2) China is ruled by a group of corrupt warlords, who have near absolute control. The country is locked in an ongoing Civil War.
3) The Holy Roman Empires capital is Vienna.

Interesting map, it's a bit like that novel by Harry Turtledove "The Two Georges" it's an Alt History where George 3rd has a bit more sense and negotiates a settlement with the Americans, they get Home Rule, remain part of the Empire and the whole of N America and the rest of the empire ends up as one federation covering the planet.  One scene in the book has English style fish and chip shops all over America.
