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

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.
