Delightfully nutty. But shouldn't Samogitia be annexed to Lithuania, and Latvia or Estonia be the east Prussia equivalent? :)

I was actually thinking that Samogitia is the equivalent of Denmark here, that makes the Western parts of Lithuania the Pomerania and Silesia of this timeline. To be honest perhaps your idea could have worked better.

As much as I like your work, I really don't understand this image. My brain has trouble wrapping around it. Could you please elaborate?

Why are people hating on this map? Are they Germans?

The borders and locations of nations are really historically unfeasible.

It's not supposed to be feasible, though. It's representative of Central Europe. The only unfeasible parts of the map that I could say are Ruthenia, Marchland, and Zimm. It's definitely not a map that deserves to get reported like how moenchii said.

Lol, how are people supposed to know that? Far as they're - and I'm - concerned it's annoying because it's wrong. I doubt being German has anything to do with it.

Alternate History, in general, is wrong. That's why we love it, though. The curiosity that comes from "what if...", but we have no idea what happened in this supposed timeline if there even is one. It seems pretty realistic give or take Ruthenia, Marchland, and Zimm. and I said the German thing because of how Germany is supposedly split up here but that is pretty invalid at this point.

Oh yeah I see where you're getting at. As far as alternate history comes though, this seems to break the suspension of disbelief for a lot of people. Like for me it's mostly the nations you've mentioned, eg. Ruthenia, Marchland, etc. Some people may be pissed off that Germany basically doesn't exist or whatever, who knows.

I agree as you saw that I understand the problem with those certain nations, but from my first moments of looking at this map, I felt some curiosity especially in regards to Polesovolhynia, Lithuania, and Samogitia. I guess I can't 100% understand the disgust toward this map but I don't think people can outright be utterly disgusted by it without some previous bias.

The fact this Poland has the same shape of Germany sans the Jutland peninsula makes it seems as though the country was decapitated. o.0

"Similar yet opposite" really is what this is all about and i absolutely LOVE IT!Love

Lol, it has a lot of strange similarities with Germany and the neighbouring countries:

Poland: Germany
Grünb.: Luxembourg
Brandenbourg: Belgium
Pomerania: Netherlands
Marchland: Switzerland
Ruthenia: Austria
Moldavia: Hungary
Hungary: Italy
Swabaria: France
