Country Name: Unified Socialist Simian Republic of Africa (or USSRA)
Country Color: Dark Brown
Type of Government: Socialist Simian Republic
History: The history of the USSRA began nearly 40 years ago, when our founding father, George the Inquisitive, escaped from a laboratory in Great Britain with over a dozen crates of precious Intellect Boosting Serum and carried them all back to his homeland, halfway around the world, on his back, singlehandedly. Sadly, the humans were much less pleased with George's heroic theft and set about trying to exterminate their newly intelligent simian brethren in a fit of jealous rage. But even after several years, the humans found it impossible to defeat the Ape Resistance. They were just too skilled at gorilla warfare. (What? Oh, don't even look at me like that. We all knew this pun was coming sooner or later during this game. Don't even lie. Better just to rip the band-aid off and get it over with all at once, right? Right. Okay, where was I?)
Anyway, after that some unspecified apocalypse happened and the human apes and non-human apes all agreed to put their differences aside and all work together to survive. And so, the USSRA was officially brought into existence, based on the idea that all simians are created equal. (Well except for the gibbons and monkeys of course, let's not go crazy here. They're all taken care of well enough though, so it's all good.) The citizens of USSRA take great pride in their status as the most progressive nation in the world, and hope to someday free their simian brethren everywhere from the bonds of idiocy. USSRA's capital is Goodall City, located on the northern coast of Lake Tanganyika.
Claims: All of Sub-Saharan Africa and Madagascar. (Possibly Southeast Asia and the Amazon as well, depending on how well their local governments treat the native Simian population.) They also want that one particular space in Northeastern Montana. For some reason.
My country's flag:
Sig Quotes 'N Stuff
Hey, thanks, donuts, for making that full map! I was just thinking about creating one of those to get it all sorted out, and then you come along and do it for me!
Flag of The Leash.
Symbol of power and authority of the master, atop the pyramid of society. The line coming down is the leash and the whip, designed to curtail and conform all humanity under their ultimate master; The Master. Resistance is futile.
I'm working on a nation for this thing, it seems awesome.
The map's great, if you keep updating that it'll be really useful.
I feel sorry for the Europeans - have fun conquering those tiny provinces.
Also, how many players will we have?
EDIT: I'll work on a flag soon once I get some more free time.
Country Name: The Siberia-Mongolia Khanate
Country Color: Bordaux
Type of Government: Khanate
History: The Khanate
Claims: The History of The Khanate began a mere 40/50 years ago and llike all scary violent countries it began in turmoil. Russia was torn apart by various rebeling factions, The present government however was still quite strong and the loyalist outnumbered the factions.. One of these factions was the Sibarian military forces.. Tired of being stuck in the snowy middle of nowhere they rebeled. Never making any progression.. A sad fate for the Sibarian forces.
However this was to change when suddenly they were approached by THE GREAT KHAN.... of course he wasn't THE GREAT KHAN yet back then, Back then he was a mercenary captain who traced his linage back to Gengis Khan himself! ... Altrough other more slanderous people said he was hit on the head to much times anyway he claimed he was DESTINED FOR GREAT THINGS..
Being desperate the sibarian armed forces hired him and provided his men with motorized warmachines. What happened next could be descirbed as a wild conqeust of territory spanning form the entirety of eastern russia to mongolia, Soon the balkan's fell victim to the great horde of tank's apc's and other landbased vehicles.
Soon the newly formed lands were rulled by the mercanry captain.. Having risen trough the ranks quickly. He now commanded all armed forces... He was the KHAN..
((Basically a Motorized Mongol horde))
Claims: Eastern Russia (Siberia) to Mongolia and all the space inbetween... And also the balkan

Flag added, pirate theme solidified.
We need more Europeans. They have roughly half the map and yet we've three people fighting over the frozen wastes of Russia (although, I guess China and India are pretty dense too). Also, we still have a completely untouched Continent.

QE: Also I am fine with more people in Europe but I swear to god keep them in Iberia or Scandinavia :P
Or you know South America, Africa, and south Asia are also woefully underpopulated.

We have 10 people signed up already, and since sign-ups are still going to be open after the game starts, I think we'll be good to go on Wednesday, with however many people have signed up by that point. Also, what others have said is correct: more diversity in locations would be much appreciated. If certain vital regions are left unpopulated, I may have to create NPCs to curb growth in those areas and prevent unbalance, which I'd rather not do.
Country Name: Southland
Country Color: Purplish
Type of Government: Financial Oligarchy
History: After the world blew up in a spectacular fashion, the people of South America found themselves in a very odd position, one in which they were free to remake their societies from the ground up. Literally, because almost everything had been destroyed. Wealthy families who had survived the cataclysmic event were forced to flee south, lest they be torn apart by large, angry mobs, discontent after years of exploitation. Those who had managed to survive both the end of the world and the time afterword, decided to found a new country in the southernmost part of South America, filled with a desire to return to the state of power and prestige that had not been known for many years.
These families founded Southland before creating the Southland Council: a group of the rich and powerful who ruled the nation. Building on the backs of the poor, this nation hopes to become a major power in this New World.
Claims: Southernmost parts of South America
2) The map hasn't got any anti-aliasing, so that shouldn't be a problem as long as you don't zoom it.
Also the flags are just going to obstruct provinces as we expand, so actually putting them on the map probably isn't that good of an idea.
And for the flags, thank you for being the first person with an opinion on it.

OP can feel free to add this to the main post if he/she pleases. Just credit me..
Country Name: The Empire Games
Country Colour: f4702f
Type of Government: Fascist City-States, Each City-State is independently ruled, but regionally significant decisions are decided on by a council of the Warlords.
History: As the west left the Middle East, a vacuum of power came into existence, and the men with the most power and money grasped this opportunity as they are ever so prone to do. Unfortunately for the people of what was once Pakistan and Afghanistan, it was the opium warlords that seized the power some 50 years ago. At first the empire was non-existent, and the warlords clashed often as they fought for better land and more power, as Man is often prone to do, decimating small villages and lowering the already sparse population by 30% in the wake of their uninterrupted conquest. That was, until an individual, known now only as Darij, came across an abandoned military outpost in his conquests. Using his newly found weaponry, he took a central city and began broadcasting radio messages across the land, using jeeps and horses to bring radios to all the villages, uniting the area around his capital into one state. The other warlords grew envious of Darij, however, and clashed with his forces, destroying most the small towns and villages around the city, which had been named Nes-Salan, until Darij rode to the nearest warlord and talked peace. Darij spoke of conquest of far-away lands, lands that could be split evenly among the warlords and a conquest that would unite the people. As the first agreed, so did many others that Darij spoke with, uniting the 30-40 warlords of the region under one banner, and one name. It was such, that The Empire Games began.
Claims: All of Southern Eurasia, the Middle East, and Egypt

Country Name: 新北齐朝 (New Northern Qi Dynasty)
Type of Government: Modern Celestial Republic.
An incredibly bureaucratic and powerful government (but don't call it authoritarian) following the efficient ideals of Neo-Neo-Confucian thought - state tests, such, for leaders.
-short: Temporal infinite cascade glitch. Part of the East (in an alternate timeline) was broken off - however, the officials governing those regions wanted to take matters into their own hands and now head the place. At least they have culture.
Deepest is holdings.
Medium is claims.
