Germania 2: Electric Boogaloo by 1Blomma Germania 2: Electric Boogaloo by 1Blomma
Basically just a remake of my earlier map titled Germania. Hopefully it came out better looking.

Finished on 20th of July, 2012

Great map, but what are those little swasticas on the map, do they represent Fuher Headquarters?

Is the annexed part of France supposed to be the part of France that was set aside for German settlement, or the former border of the Holy Roman Empire?

The former HRE border was roughly the border of the lands set aside for German settlement

Hmm, I wonder, why haven't you added Northern-Sleswig (from Denmark) and South-Tirol (from Italy):?
And Kaiserheim (near Utrecht), is that a new city:?
But great map, anyways! :)

Not a new city, just Doorn renamed. It was mostly for fun, since Wilhelm II lived out his last years there :)

The South Tyroleans were to be resettled in the Crimea. North Schleswig stayed Danish because, well, I found no claims that the Nazis wanted to annex it.

They planned on annexing it all at once as Nordmark but needed it to be kept calm for the time being to save on troops and to keep Danish shipping routes and dairy production going smoothly.

Ah, I see, but the Nazi's made no claims to annex the Netherlands either, right:?

Ok, here's what I wrote in my earlier comment that I then hid.

They did. On several occasions. There was one plan (favored by the SS) where the entire Dutch population was to be resettled in the Vistula valley, and the Netherlands transformed into a Reichsgau named either Westland or Holland. Another plan was the Rauter plan, which divided the Netherlands into 5 different Reichsgaue.


Apparently I can't edit my own comments here, and they both contain broken links.

Here's a link for further information about Reichsgau Westland [link]

Btw, didn't Germany plan on annexing South-Tyrol and Istria after the fall of Italy? And wasn't the annexation of Switzerland and Liechtenstein a possible alternative either?

Italy never fell here! And Switzerland/Liechtenstein were planned to be taken over, yes.

Oh, thanks! :)

Though I think that if it had stayed like this, by the time Hitler would die, massive protests for independance would come out of all corners of the country... It would probably get unhandelable and just fall apart within a few decades... (:evillaugh:)

The Anglo-American Nazi War universe shows a rather terrifying view of a stalemate WW2 where Germany runs Europe.

How come Rheinhessen is part of Westmark? And why have Hessen, Sachsen-Anhalt, Franken and Hannover (excapt the west) merged?

Other than those things. awesome as usual. This is perhaps my favourite of all your maps.

I don't actually know why Rheinhessen is part of Westmark... It is most likely just a mistake I made. But hey, why not.

Regarding the merging of the northern Gaue it was because I felt they were too small and it would make more sense to merge them into larger Gaue for administrative purposes, at least inside the Altreich. For example, look at Bayereuth, Niederdonau, Ostpreußen, Pommern and Wartheland.

Did you use Adobe Illustrator for this one?

How did you get the different colors for the Gaus.
Reply
:icon1blomma:
1Blomma Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2012
Mostly photoshop, I used illustrator for the rivers and dashed lines.

What do you mean? They are just separate layers colored differently.

A simply spectacular map! If only it was a reality, but I too have a question. Wouldn't it say Grossdeutsches Reich, as opposed to its current map title. As 'German' is an English name for the peoples just as the French call Germans "Allemaigne" or something.

"If only it was a reality." Yeah, ahem... How about all those rather unhappy minorities?

Depends on time period and context of how this Reich came to be. Is this achieved through the confederation and consolidation of kingdoms from the 16th-19th century or is this a result of imperialistic exploitation and conquest of the 20th century? If the former then YAY everybody coming together to make a more united peoples if the latter then BOO sovereignty for each minority against the war machine!

I wouldn't actually mind this, though. I like Germany a lot, as we are related people, but if this were to be true, I would rather like some autonomy and to be allowed to just speak Dutch, without intense Germanifying or so. :)

But I do kinda feel bad for those Polish, Czech, Slovenians, Ukrainians, Lithuanians and the French? Nah, not the French, they have taken plenty of lands from us, and if it is up to them, they are certainly not done yet. :no:

The Dutch were already part of the Holy Roman Empire, as were the Bohemians, a portion of Poles, and possibly other slavic peoples so again it really depends on what time period this map is taking place but I doubt it's HRE time for it doesn't go as far south as the HRE did.

I think it was used, because all continental-germanic peoples are in this Reich.

And you´re right, at first we were called Germanen (Germanics), but in the 10th century we started to call us Deutsche, but the British still call us Germans till today.

"Grossgermanisches Reich" means "Greater Germanic Empire", whereas "Grossdeutsches Reich" means "Greater German Empire". The distinction is made because this empire encompasses not only Germans, but also the Dutch. The name change was discussed and was to have happened after the Low countries had been incorporated into the empire.

And apparently the Bohemians and Czech were are considered both Germanic and Slavic, thank you for the clarification all! I learned something today! Now the question is, where did the deutsch/dutch words come from? To Wikipedia!

That map is definitly one of the best I´ve ever seen with an interesting background-story, too!

Just a question, wasn´t there also planned a Gau called Sudetenland, being some northern territories of Böhmen?
I know the rest of the Sudetenland was added to Bavarian or Austrian parts, but I think the north should be a Gau itself?

I think you did even great detail work, because you even used the german names for the cities that were conquered. Do we ever have a chance to see a whole Europe map of that scenario?

I also read it was planned to make an European Union, the members must be loyal to Germany, but are indipendant and within that Union is another one, the Heiliges Germanisches Reich deutscher Nation,containing all nordic states.

That would be awesome, too!
