Mitteleuropa - All roads lead to Germania by 1Blomma Mitteleuropa - All roads lead to Germania by 1Blomma
Political map of the Greater Germanic Empire, the Central European part. 

After the end of the Second World War, Germany stood as the sole master of the European continent. The former European part of the USSR was divided into four Reichskommisariate (Ostland, Ukraine, Moskowien, Kaukasus) and one Reichsunmittelbarkeit (Siegerland). 
Ostland was eventually transformed to something similiar to a personal union with the German Empire. The entire area was to be settled by Germans and the people already living there were to be Germanised.
Ukraine was in between a colony and a puppet state comprising several Generalbezirke. The six westernmost Generalbezirke were to be Germanised and settled with Germans, while the eastern half was declared a "Ukrainian National Territory" where the Ukrainians in the west were to be deported to. Comparable to the Bantustans of the Apartheid era South Africa.
Kaukasus was more like a union of several smaller countries comparable to republics in todays Russia, each with their own government but in external affairs subortinate to the Reichskommissar. Small areas that were economically significant were cleared of inhabitants and settled with Germans. Roughly 25% of each state's governmental positions were held by Germans.
Moskowien was a mix between a colony and several puppet states, with six Generalkommissariate and two autonomous republics. The autonomous republics had their own governments, while the other areas were ruled by Germans comparable to the way European colonies in Africa were ruled.
Adolfsburg (St. Petersburg) was the capital from which the east was administered.

To ensure German supremacy over the lands in the East, new highways and railroads were constructed along important routes. Along each route, new German inhabited cities were built, sometimes on top of old cities, sometimes completely from scratch. These highways and railroads stretched as far east as the Ural mountains.

Being outside the borders of the Empire did not ensure anyones safety, however. Denmark and Slovakia were German protectorates, Norway, Hungary, Romania, Greece, Croatia and Serbia were either German allies or puppets. France and Italy were German allies, each with their own colonies, protectorates and puppets. Overall, a pretty shitty world to live in.

Brilliant and terrifying map & timeline, just finished reading a book on what the Nazi's had planned, the whole continent covered with autobahn with each town and city the same with their own little party headquarters, SS station, jugendherberge and little teashops filled with old biddies having kaffee und kuchen while some twee Austrian operetta like "The merry widow" plays on the intercom.

A Nazi empire probably wouldn't have lasted long, once that shortarse Austrian Hitler died there was no law in place to peacefully decide who would take over next. The reich would fall apart or become clapped out and out of date like Franco's Spain.

So thought provoking!
What if the Nazis would have won WWII.
I always imagine they would have killed most of us and enslaved the rest.
Making a brutal utopia where even the slightest genetic imperfection could get a fetus aborted.
(So Sci-fi)
But really a big Nazi empire would probably have mellowed over time, like China and Russia are today.
It's kind of a trip that Germany is actually the economic powerhouse of the EU today.

A Nazi empire wouldn't have lasted long, I believe. Nobody would want to live under the Nazi yoke for long (even the so-called "Germanic master race") and upon Hitler's death, this terror-realm would've fallen apart in a civil wars between Nazi factions and peoples rising up in rebellions all over Europe.

And let me guess... if you ask too many questions about where all the Jews went or why there are so much fewer Slavs than we seem to remember, the answer is, "oh, they all got resettled in the East. Keep asking questions and you'll join them."

Well done on the map, but... *shudder*

It's ironic, but with so many Gaue named for rivers they're almost starting to resemble French departments. This also reminds me of a scenario I've wanted to do for some time where the Allies team up with the Nazis against Stalin, rather than with the Russians against Hitler.

Heh, I thought about that, too, but I really couldn't come up with other names.
