Central African Empire

Since I feel a bit weird about entering the MotF considering I'm the person who runs it, I decided to send an entry to the map contest on the Russian forum. The prompt was to show a scenario essentially contained within the entry, so there's no additional text to go with the image below. The basic premise is that the Central African Empire is somehow effective in modernizing their military, leading them to set up their own little bloc in opposition to the Americans and the Soviets. Enjoy! :)

Not often you get to see an alternate history with African countries. Love it!

Nice style. In fact, Central African Empire existed in OTL, between 1976, when Bokassa declared himself Emperor, and 1979, when he was overthrown.

Yep, that's actually what I based it off of! This map comes from a world where that empire did especially well for itself, and was, well, actually an EMPIRE.

Is it still led by the almighty Imperial House of Bokassa by 2017 or did something happen between that time?

I'd guess there was some sort of alt-Iraq war where the US invaded Central Africa to depose the dictator, although all it did was make the whole region go to shit.
