In the alternative timeline, where the Cold War ended with the triumph of the Nationalists. One last battle has be fought. Europe is running out of any possible energy resources, the industry is stagnating and European Union's greatest foe - the union of Eastern European rogue states known as the "Intermarum" has issued an economic blockade on its mighty western neighbor. Too long we have tolerated these hordes making illegal genetic experiments on people and polluting our holy continent with the wastes of their nuclear production. Too long they have polluted the North Pole and refused to disarm. It's time, commander. It's time, commander, to break through their failed regime with our legions of steel and fire.

The US is a bit of "busy" in its own internal borders ;) So this time it won't interfere in the European issues

The proximity of non-friendly countries alters Estonia's choice before something big will happen

Hahaha, why is Riga named 'Wilna'? :p

Also, it's Vilnius, not Wilna.

Secondly, Klaipeda under these borders would be part of Germany. Moreso, it's a city with direct access to the Baltic. Palanga is more likely in the position that Klaipeda is in, but that city also has direct access to the Baltic, unlike how it is on the map.

1) *adds to his 'to fix' list*
2) We use German name conventions to represent the feeling of this German-dominated world (you can notice also a lot of Russian and other cities entitled with German names)
3) The city-dot is situated inland for purely stylistic reasons. That dot would merge with the black border if placed closer to the sea :P
4) By story Intermarum has only 1 Baltic sea port. Which better it should be?

Well, the real port is Klaipeda, but until the time period between WW1 and WW2 it was under Germany's control. In January 1923, after the Klaipeda Revolt, it became a part of Lithuania. Its German name was Memel.

If you need a port for Intermarum, I suggest you include Latvia and just pick Riga instead :p Otherwise, Klaipeda would work ( seeing as the Klaipeda region is included in the Intermarum Lithuania section in the other post/image ).

Description

After the collapse of both USA and USSR, the European continent was left to fend for itself. The Western Europe was integrating under the again-revived banner of nationalism, spreading and replacing older governments. Meantime, in Eastern Europe, Ukrainian leader Kovalenko used the brutal force to revive the dying Warsaw pact. Red Ukraine's tank battalions quickly overrun the weak governments of Romania, Hungary, and even saved Serbia and eastern Poland from total defeat. However, the two powers aren't alone.
