This alternate-history map shows the extent of the Scandinavian Empire (Empire of Scandinavia), around the 18th-19th century.
The timeline changed during the 15th-16th century, with the Kalmar Union evolving into a unified kingdom. Over time, the newly formed Scandinavian kingdom expanded its territories as far as the Ural mountains in the east, and the New World - Vinland - in the west. With a great many people of various origins, now living within its borders, and becoming increasingly wealthy as a result, Scandinavia became an empire.
The Empire of Scandinavia is now a great power; its influence extends far beyond its borders, and across the world. With its vassal states - Muscovy and Poland-Lithuania - out of the way in the east, and the petty squabbles of the west European states, Scandinavia is seemingly unstoppable.
This map is, more or less, based on one of my older maps, showing the Empire of Lithuania. You can find it here
The font is intended to be somewhat difficult to read, as I am not entirely sure of what certain "provinces" would be called.
This was made using GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). Map texture: Tom Patterson, shadedrelief.com

The fonts used aren't made by me - I found them on DaFont.
