Federal Technocracy of Aistia by GTD-Orion Federal Technocracy of Aistia by GTD-Orion
The Technocratic Federation of Aistia ( a.k.a. Federal Technocracy of Aistia/Baltia ) is a country in Europe, the largest of the three Baltic states. It is situated along the southeastern shore of the Baltic Sea, and across the Baltic Sea to the west lie Sweden and Denmark. It shares borders with Livonia to the north, Belarus to the east and south, Germany to the west, Poland to the south, and Russia to the east. Aistia has an estimated population of 32.8 million as of 2011, and its capital and largest city is Klaipeda.

Aistia is a federal technocracy composed of 3 states: Prussia, Curonia and Lithuania. Each of them maintain their own cultures and languages.

It is currently the fastest growing economy in Europe. Aistia is a member of the ERRF, the Council of Europe, the European Union and the Commonwealth of Technocratic States.

--------------------------------------------------

So here's another alternate-history map, showing a fictional technocratic state of Aistia/Baltia composed of the main Balt states.

The point of divergence is the 9th-10th century where Curonia converts to Christianity and forms the first Balt country. This eventually leads to various wars with the other Balts, but they put their differences behind when the Teutonic Order is called in by Poland to help deal with the 'heathen' Balts. The Teutonic Order ravages through Prussia and Lithuania, but is eventually beaten back and removed from the Eastern European theater.

Eventually they form a basic union mid-14th century, leading to the Unification in 1563, mirroring the real-life formation of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Although not as large, it is fairly safe from exterior threats at the time. Eventually it becomes a protestant country during the reformation era, and thus maintains healthy relations with countries such as Sweden and the various Ruthenian and German countries.

By the end of the 18th century, however, due to various unsuccessful wars with Poland, Livonia, and so on, Aistia and Poland are partitioned, with Prussia becoming part of the rising German state of Brandenburg, and the rest being taken by Russia.

The rest is rather similar to the real world history.

I made this map in GIMP. Feedback and comments are appreciated.

P.S. The Iron Wolf legend here was interpreted differently, and that's why Vilnius isn't neither the capital city, nor actually important.

looks great but a true technate would not use money

because they can produce so much, so easily that money would be redundant.

That wouldn't really work if the majority of other countries would use money.

still, a technate does not have a price system. other countries could compare how much they produce to their own price system however they would not have one themselves.

Thanks. It would be an industrial and technological supernation though.

And yeah, I guess I can do requests. As long as they're not too complex. Send a note about it.

Awesomeness. What's the Iron Wolf legend about? I am not familiar with it, or its connection to Vilnius or Trakai.

The legend is unrelated to Trakai. It is about the founding of the city of Vilnius. You can read it in english here: [link]
