The red lines show the Autobahns that were built in order to connect this vast empire. The black rail like lines show the extremely wide gauged railroad (3 meters wide, twice as wide as railroads are today) that were to be constructed as Germany's version of shipping routes on sea. What's the point of having the largest empire in the world if you don't also have the largest trains, right?
The cities (or rather, fortresses) of Nordstern (Trondheim) in Norway, Westhafen (Le Havre), Scherburg (Cherbourg), Brest and Sankt Nazer (Sainte-Nazaire) on the French Atlantic coast and Weißenburg (Belgrade) in Serbia were turned over to the Germans to ensure the safety of the Reich. The final peace treaty with France saw roughly all the territory that once belonged to the HRE be annexed by Germany, while Brittany was made an "independent" state comparable to the pro-Nazi Slovak Republic. Italy recieved Savoy, Nice (the entire departement, not just the old county) the Alps in between them, Corsica and Tunisia.
More information can be found on the regional maps.
Both Denmark and Norway at least were make into Reichkommisariats in OTL. Aside from that, absolutely beautiful map sir! Also, I know you've said that in this TL Germany doesn't control OZAV or OZAK because Italy never falls, but considering the tensions Mussolini and Hitler had during the war, plus the fact that the Nazis weren't exactly known for keeping their word on their treaties, have you ever considered making a map with OZAV and OZAK included (as well as the Scandinavian Reichskommiariats)?
The Poles were to be completely eradicated, subjected to genocide and spread too thin to repopulate. In fact, Poland was predicted to be completely free of Poles sometime between 1951 and 1961.
Russians, Belarusians, Serbs, and Rusyns would've had the vast majority of their populations killed and the rest used as a slave labor force for the German war machine and to farm the lands of Eastern Europe. None of them would receive anything but the most basic education and would be banned from reproducing except to create new slaves.
Ukrainians, Czechs, and Bulgarians were to have a little more leniency thrown their way, since they were seen as closer to Aryans. They'd still face starvation, expulsion, and enslavement, but they were deemed acceptable for Germanization. This would mean renouncement of their native culture and language in favor of Nazi Germany's. These Slavs could breed, but they were to only have children with Germans to eventually remove the Slavic traits from the gene pool.
Croats and Slovaks were military allies of Nazi Germany, but were still seen as lesser and would have large numbers killed off. They were be subjected to more Germanization than the rest.
All of these groups would likely be subjected to an Apartheid-esque system in Nazi territory. Any and all illegal pregnancies would be aborted if they were discovered.
As for Russia, it's probably filled with expelled Slavs and the remains of the Soviet Union.
Because there is gonna be one in Turkestan and Ural, along with a couple others that were planned
I wonder what would happen to the Czechs? Is spared to their lives? Probably yes, after all, did not fight the Germans did not do anything to upset their new masters.
It's a shame that people are so easily forgotten that the Germans started the war, the Germans were attacking all around, the Germans murdered millions of other nations and especially Slavs and Jews. Now use the word Nazi. It was as if there were some aliens and were German. No one else.
But Budyonnovsk is a bad name for caucasian town because Semyon Budyonny was fighting against Germany. I think that Kumastadt sounds better.
Have you put any great (or little) thought into the political situation of North America? The idea has been on my mind since very early in this map series, and I plan on doing research of my own, but I felt it important to ask you if you had any prior ideas.
I don't expect you to ever make a map of North America, seeing as how your main focus is on Europe, but if you wouldnt be to offended I would like to take on the task. The map would be German made, using "American Union" instead of USA as Hitler did.
If you dont respond, Ill see it as a sign to take full artistic license, but I would be very greatful for any previous thoughts you might have had.
