Republic of Three Nations by GTD-Orion Republic of Three Nations by GTD-Orion
This map shows the Republic of Three Nations (also known as the Commonwealth of Three Nations, or the Polish-Lithuanian-Ruthenian Commonwealth) as it is in modern times. It is an alternate history map in which the Commonwealth was not partitioned by Russia, Austria and Prussia.

The three states that form the Commonwealth have equal status with each other.

It is based on one of my previous maps - Alternate Great War - which showed Europe's two major alliances before World War I, with the Commonwealth as a member of the Triple Alliance. That map can be found here. The larger version of the flag can also be found here.

----------

In this world, Russia (Federal Republic of Russia) is more developed, and far more democratic. It never went through a "Soviet Union" phase and has been a democracy since at least the start of the 20th century. As such, it maintains cordial relations with various neighboring countries, as well as have peacefully allowed various regions to split away from Russia.

Kocibey and Kiev are at least two of such states. They are also, more or less, city-states.

Crimea and Kocibey are both tatar states, although Kocibey is very multi-ethnic.

Circassia is a federal state, somewhat like this world's Russia, and is composed of numerous smaller states around the Caucasus region. Although it itself never became a part of Russia.

----------

I don't particularly like how this map turned out to be, so I might remake it eventually. I am also not certain if the borders are correct enough.

----------

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.

Feedback would be appreciated.

Good to see you back. Good stuff, as ever. Just wondering why butterflies seem to have been ritually sacrificed to ensure OTL borders for some countries? :XD:

Very handsome map! Does Circassia include the Chechens and the Ossetians?

Yes, it does. It also includes Dagestan (for the most part, at least). Though I'm not sure what Circassia's internal borders would be like, considering that there was no USSR.

Nice! So I take it Putin isn't in power in this timeline?

Very nice vision (especially for me :) ) but why there is no Kiev and Latvian territory within the Republic? Conflict with Russia, I guess?

Kiev was already a part of Russia even before the Partitions, and it remained so until at least mid-20th century. Similar situation with Latvia, as that region was also a part of Russia at the time, though a bit more complicated. Most of what would be Latvia is split into Livonian and Latvian cultures, since Livonians weren't assimilated here.

Okay, seems like it have a sense :) What about Polish-Lithuanian-Ruthenian relations with the rest of Europe?
