    Afraid? More like amused. How the heck do they intend on overcoming all the infamy and militancy penalties? Don't tell me they plan on using cheats. :rolleyes:

    South Sudan but not Kazakhstan? Sri Lanka but not East Turkistan? What?

    And why does their ideal world include the Austro-Hungarian and Russian Empires?

    That looks like the original Victoria... I guess they can't even afford a modern computer.

    It actually looks more like the AHD start in 1861. Hence Blue Prussia.

    The blue is probably Bavaria. Prussia is grey.

    I think madviking posted this on the maps thread as well, but hey, it's pretty hilarious.


    It appears they missed a lot of kebabs around the world.

    "Islamic State Media" doesn't seem to be very well-informed about which parts of the world actually are or are not Islamic. Fitting. :rolleyes:

    Somebody remind me when Myanmar was ever Muslim?

    Confirming my suspicion that Paradox games players are mostly fascists and violent theocrats. :3

    Because what the West truly fears is a Resurgent Habsburg empire.

    It's funny because those guys over on the other forum fit this description like a glove.

    I am not sure what you tried with symbol at the end. Did you mean <3, because I don't know what :3 means.

    Catlips, believe. Well, I use that emoticon when I'm saying something mischievous. :lol:

    Anyway, it's a shame that East Turkestan isn't included in their ideal Islamic empire. What's the matter? Are they scared of going up against China?

    It's a woman and her bosom. Something something maternal and nurturing something.

    (I jest, naturally. It's just an extravagantly happy smilie, imo.)

    Hear hear!



    Obviously they fear the glorious Middle Kingdom. I guess their intel on China was based on medieval-era reports that China is the greatest civilization on the planet.

    Wouldn't surprise me. These guys give the impression of being temporally-lost accidental time travellers, thinking it's 1861, and holding on to a value system appropriate for 5th century Arabia.

    I am surprised they didn't include Spain.

    That would explain a lot about these Islamic terrorists.

    They didn't include the kebabs in the Balkans either, which is my main pet peeve about this map.
