Honestly, this feels like a lot of downgrades compared to the prior iteratin. Feels a lot more derivative and a lot less inspired. Certainly some good ideas (as it would be impossible for you to not come up with some), but for the most part it just doesn't feel like a cohesive whole. Feels kind of cobbled together. Perhaps I'll change my mind with further updates and the new map.
This is the District of Columbia in Washington, not Washington in the District of Columbia
Rough population of both?
Really like the map and a lot of cool concepts in this setting, though I must say that I think I would have preferred if the Indian Rajas and Sultanates had been on the shores of Australia proper, and Lemuria had been the haunt of a mix of Aboriginal and truly exotic *Tsalal cultures. It just seems too improbable for their to be so many recent Asian arrivals so far south, but considering the climate and wealth of Australia has changed it actually would make sense that these states could settle its northern shore.
