Wild forest dogs that can climb trees. They have long, gripping toes, and develop 'death from above' group hunting tactics.

Round furballs that are kept by Chung Kuo royalties of past, they're somewhat similar to pug or shitzu.

A desert dog which have big ears, and can hop-run quite fast, because their primary prey are similar to Jerboas.

Anyway, nice to see you posting again! :D

Consider the following breeds of dog which are extinct in OTL:

  • Molossian Hounds- IN OTL, these extinct hounds were prized by the Romans, and were considered the progenitors of the English Mastiff and the British Bulldog…
  • Kuri- Polynesian dogs that were known primarily for their meat and their skins which were popular in the South Pacific…
  • Agassian- small hunting dogs used by the Romans, which were the progenitors of the Welsh Springer Spaniel

Grandheim War Dog - "Worg"
Inspiration: White German Shepard. I wasn't sure if they were appropriate for Grandheim or not, but I like 'em. They would be big dogs, big, tough, solid dogs made for running and fighting.

Thorrlundt Hound
Inspiration: THis beautiful mutt called Aero. All-purpose hounds, bright-eyed, intelligent, the like. THey would come in varying shades of white, gray, and black.

Nuuit Hunting Dog (Geri)
Inspiration: Black Fox. Small, fast, ferocious hunting dogs, closely related to (but much smaller than) the Nuuit Sled Dog. Black in coloration, with some silver or white markings.

Nuuit Sled Dog (Freki)
Inspiration: BLack Wolf. Big, heavy, powerful working dogs that pull sleds and carts. Similar to the Nuuit Hunting Dogs.

That one's actually an animatronic prop from a "Hound of the Baskervilles" movie.

Soooo…help me think up more breeds.

Allright, I'll make some fixes. About the maps, well, I've been busy with college lately, maybe when things die down a bit, I'll update some stuff.

Some quick ideas, for the "Politics" page. For the portion listed as the "Criminal Underworld", you can easily post links to the:

  • Django-Ito
  • Tiakiawa Criminal Syndicate
  • Order of Jaran
  • Ziklag

If there are any other criminal organizations created over the course of time, they can certainly be added as well to the section.

Also, will the world maps be updated soon? If anything, it would certainly help in determining what other historical events will take place in the ATL.

Well, I certainly was trying to avoid the cliche of analogues of Western European nations. Thus explains many of the nations designed thus far. I certainly plan to add some other non-Western items to the ATL, to make things even more unexpected.

I'll see what I can do in terms of European and East Asian countries. As for the existence of the nations, the nations are still in existence during the 3rd Great War. I'll see what I can do to insure that the ATL, has some unexpected twists.

Hmmm, maybe we'll need more small nation-states, to fill Surpica somewhat. Some more eastern asiatic stuff mayhaps. Also, we need more Europeanistic stuff to fill the neighbors of Heidlheim, Keldheim and Zarya.
I'll see if I can fill up some of the equipment and stuff.
Oh yeah, do those three countries still stand during the 3rd Great War?

Missed a Yoruba there.

I have added 3 nations for the ATL. If anything, I am pretty sure that all of them are different enough that they would certainly add something different. Are there any requests for the TL?

missed an Africa there.

OK, I'll move Kotobuki and Reiran south of the equator, near Zlatan.

Just to add some details to the history, I created the "Imperian Rebellion of 1868". The rebellion forced many of the "military advisors", mainly from the Arakan Empire, to flee the country. The idea was to create a situation wherein the Imperian people feel justified for their "Statism".

The date of 1687 works well in terms of the Ynglian unification, when you consider that the Arakan Empire was wracked by civil war starting in 1686, and spreading throughout the empire by 1690.

Both details don't contradict anything that has been written, but they certainly add more details…

Hello to all. You may not know me, but I am the person who was responsible for the creation of Imperia and the detailing of the country. All about this site, I have seen references to Imperia, though none of them are as coordinated as they could be, with different dates and such. The basic summary of Imperia that I had in my head is as follows:

The First Empire of Imperia was created following the unification of West Ynglia and East Ynglia into one kingdom in 1687. It went on to begin a rapidly expanding, medium-sized colonial empire that cemented its place as a fledging world power. However, this empire was destroyed when it declared itself an ally of (Insert loser of First Great War here). It was torn apart as its colonial possessions were captured. Following the war, the people were subject to the fierceness of a now absolute monarchy. For fifty years, the people were subject to the will of the aristocracy until one scientist and his brothers (of which some were merchants, some were military men and others were political men) formed the New State Movement, which instigated a so-called "Glorious Revolution in 1810. They turned many of the military and government officials to their cause and were popularised by the public. They overthrew the monarchy and created the Republic of Imperia. At first, it was decided that it would be a libertarian utopia for the people, but it eventually warped overtime (as they needed to exercise their control over the anarchist country) into a totalitarian ideology and practice. The word "Statism" became synonymous outside Imperia for an authoritarian and all-powerful state without democracy.

In the Second Great War, they decided to start a Second Great Empire of Imperia. They had planned for more than a decade and launched their conquest with new powerful weapons, such as the tank. They conquered much of Tarisi and other parts of the Orintis Continent. But a combined alliance and many human waves finally beat back the technologically superior Imperian armies (which had began to lose its advantage as their machines were captured towards the end of the war) to their original lands. The armies could not get past the natural and man-made defences of the Ynglian Islands and the Ynglian Peninsula. Eventually, through a prolonged war of attrition known as the Burning Border War, the Allies demanded an armistice and peace was finally declared. Imperia still kept its wartime name of 'Domination' to symbolise that they would rise again and dominate the world.

That was a summary of the history of the Domination of Imperia, I was hoping we could discuss it and see if any changes should be made.

I sort of see a problem with the Imperian border. The article said that it originated from the Ynglia Islands, which were to the left of the conquered peninsula. In the map, the islands and peninsula are split between three states, with Imperia inclusive.

I definitely like that. If anything, we also have to find political and cultural reasons for why the wars in the ATL seem to last longer than in OTL. Consider that the U.S. has been involved in Iraq since 2003, and we can't wait to get out of that conflict. In Vietnam, the United States entered in 1964, but was out of the conflict in 1972. The situation should resemble 1984 by George Orwell in its persistance of political ideology…
