Hello, this is an update to my previous map which I am not particularly satisfied with. I will need to explain some things further in order to produce a good story
The UN has fallen and after a mess in the former United States of America, old and new ideas come into picture
Trends go as followed; Imperialism, Globalization, Capitalism on a global level(some socialism but not much), religious secularization, Union and Federalization of some areas(Oceania, East-asia, Europe and Eurasia are examples), militarism, non-government funded global warming defenses, nuclear shield above and on earth defense systems making nukes almost obsolete, loss of minority languages, shortages on natural resources(Yes, non-oil cars have become popular but oil is still needed for other stuff), political tension/hostilities, population growth, political tension within the EU, scientific advances, rapid growth of African nations
Interstellar travel to other planets is still in the child phase, while Mars, Luna, Venus and Europa have some bases, they are not terraformed, and hold little humans except for scientist and military personel
North American Empire: In 2019, mass riots began to take place in a economically crippled US, this led to an eventual de-stabilization of the US government and led to a coup by the Homeland Security that resulted in the US becoming a Military Dictatorship. While fighting within took place most of it was small and unorganized. Until 2023, when a man, named Thomas Hector, and a few other followers united the resistance groups in the west US and formed the New Continental Army. In 2 years of fighting thanks in part to many veterans siding with the NCA, America was now in the hands of NCA. However in the aftermath a republic was never formed, instead a Federal Constitutional Monarchy, placing Thomas, who changed his name to Augustus Caesar, had now become the Emperor of the American Empire. For a two month period those who resisted his authority were wiped clean and other groups who were not involved in any way were also wiped out(such as the KKK, WBC, Atheism+, the Black Panthers etc). The first sign of territorial expansion began with (freaking) Canada. The annexation caused Canadian protest but they were unheard and in order to weaken tension. Canadian head protesters were secretly taken out to cause dissolution to the organized protests. The next territorial gain for the AE was Greenland off of Denmark, then the Caribbean wars took place and eventually the Second-Mexican American War and control over Central America. During the stabilization of North America, the South American Commonwealth formed and came with a very anti-North American foreign policy and even made an alliance with the new caliphate. In 2047, a few years prior to the war, Emperor Caesar was killed by a Mexican Nationalist. The first born of the Emperor, Joseph Hector, who changed his name to Caesar Augustus II was crowned the new Emperor. When WW3 started, the Empire responded with an invasion of South America. But in order to speed up the war, America would need to make major strides in Military technology. First was the introduction of the Elite Legion Guard, a SEAL like group only loyal to the Emperor, the Chairman(president) and the Council(modern congress). Second Knightmare Code Geass like mechs were created as a new land-air based unit equipped with handheld 50-cal mini-guns and other gadgets making it a behemoth on the battle field. Lastly, a Super Soldier project nicknamed MOHAWK, though Super Soldier projects had been attempted in the past, it wasn't until 2051 when they were used in the invasion of the South American Commonwealth. The Guyana territory was annexed peacefully in order to gain a charging point into the SAC. The MOHAWK warriors were used to also quell resistance in any of the areas in NAE control. After the take over of the Americas, the empire set it's sights abroad taking the Philippines, Israel-Lebanon Liberia-Freetown and Ghana as dumping grounds for the empire. Currently a rivalry between America and Europe vs China and Eurasia is still going on strong and the emperor is setting positions up for war.

The European Union
As time went on, and during the US's transition from Republic to Empire, changes were made to the EU. Turkey was annexed in 2016, the USE was formed in 2022, and new blocks formed in order to repel Eurasia. The EU and the NAE have a heated relationship over Natural Resources and other issues such as America's new found position of power and technology. It took three years after the Empire's takeover of South America during WW3, for the EU to develop it's own super soldier project, the CONQUISTADORS, currently the Cold War against Eurasia is sorta going either way, Tunisia and Morocco eventually joined in order to resist both Egypt and Algeria, which both rose in becoming world powers. New divisions were formed in creation of this new EU but this caused temporal instability which caused riots in some areas of Europe such as Greece, Croatia, France and other areas. Eventually these were put down now the EU has become one of the strongest nations in the world.
Population: 1.1 Billion
The Eurasian Union: In late 2015, Putin achieved his dream of a union of Eurasia, the original members included; Russian-Belorussian-Georgian Union State, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Ukraine. It soon spread out to include Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Moldova, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Mongolia. The Second Cold War didn't start until the Empire conquered North America, however some would argue that it started in 2015 at the creation of the Eurasian Union. Eurasia currently isn't the most stable nation, as they have had to put down many separatist movements in order to keep the peace. The alliance with China is quite surprising since past disagreements have caused heated relations. The Union looks to also break the EU by taking old Russian Empire states but through politics rather then war.
Population: 1.2 Billion
People's Republic of Greater China: When the American Civil War and AE imperialism started, the PRGC began to make imperialistic adventures of it's own by taking parts of East Asia such as North Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Burma, Nepal, and Bhutan, while also placing puppets in Cambodia and Thailand. Socially it has begun to make strides by granting more Autonomy in Tibet, Inner-Mongolia and other states as an attempt to quell nationalism without civil war. Religion has been completely opened up and soon Christianity became the largest religion in East Asia. It has also become a technological marvel, of the world rivaling the AE, and the EU. While the government is still technically a dictatorships, alternative parties have been able to gain power attempting to impose democratic revisions to the government.

Update: The Empire is changed up a bit
