This is a list of all the Nations of the Battle of Manzikert timeline. This will not include historical nations. If you wish to see the historical nations of this timeline, please click here. Note that nations are assigned to a certain continent based on the location of their capital. For example, Byzantium would be classified as a European nation despite huge swaths of its empire being located in Asia and Africa.

Europe

Europe as of 2020.

Overview

For most of its history, the European Continent, though being the smallest continent, has been home to the majority of the world's states for a multitude of reasons, be it the complex nature of the Holy Roman Empire or the divisive geography of the continent. Today, Europe, at least when compared to other continents, is somewhat unified, having crystallized into several large states. However, with the Balkanization of Eastern Europe and clamor for independence for log oppressed groups in Germany (movements that have been propped up by Germany's hostile neighbors), there are fears that the continent could splinter once more.

Asia

Overview

The largest continent and the place where the POD of this timeline takes place, Asia is a highly populated and diverse continent. Stretching from coasts of Anatolia to the mountains of Japan, this continent is home to great empires such as the Byzantine Empire, the Russian Tsardom, and the Chinese Empire. Numerous nations have recently gained independence from their former European colonial overlords, adding even more nations to the list.

Africa

Overview

This continent is the second-largest in land area and is characterized by its divisive geography. The sweltering Sahara dominates the north while the thick jungles of the central continent is prevalent in that area. Few actually independent nations are located here as much of the continent is still under the rule of European colonial empires, however, recent rebel movements and insurgencies aim to change that.

North Columbia (North America)

Overview

First settled by indigenous peoples during the conclusion of the last Ice Age, discovered and settled by Vikings in the 10th and 11th centuries, and rediscovered by Bartholemew Columbus in the early 16th century, North Columbia is the third largest continent and home to the largest amount of sovereign nations. Colonized by Europeans in the 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, it stretches from the Arctic Ocean to the Isthmus of Panamania in the south. The predominant power on the continent is the Empire of Mexica, only being rivaled by the Kingdom of Louisiana and the Republic of Cascadia in the north.

South Columbia (South America)

Overview

South Columbia when compared to their more northern counterparts is much more united. Settlement first began with the English and Iberians in New Veniza and Brasil respectively. The Byzantines and Holy Romans (and as a result the Dutch who seized the Imperial colonial possessions after the 90 Years War) also established a foothold on the continent. The two predominant powers are Brasil and Andesia respectively, with New Veniza being a minor power in their own right.

Janzland (Australia/Oceania)

Overview

This continent was first discovered by Willem Janszoon in the 17th century. The Holy Roman Emperor was interested in establishing a colony on the continent and soon a party of mainly Dutch settlers arrived at what they called New Holland. As the HRE collapsed, the Dutch seized New Holland and used it as a launching pad for further conquest and colonization. The Germans regained control during their unification in the 19th century. The Dutch/German colonization of this continent has essentially turned the continent into a new Germany, with few non-German territories being located here.

Terra Australis (Antarctica)

Overview

This section of the article is unique in that the fact that it will not list the nations that call Terra Australis home as this continent is home to no sovereign nation. Instead, this portion of the article will contain a list detailing the nations that lay claim to the "World of Ice" as it is commonly referred to.

Terra Australis was first sighted by Byzantine whalers from the New Ionian Islands (Falkland Islands) in 1819. Declaring it the southernmost continent, it was named Terra Australis, in honor of Ptolemy's theory about a large, southern landmass. However, landing on the continent was a very difficult task, and it wouldn't be until 1872 when the Swedish Kalgoorlie ​​​​​​vessel departed for Terra Australis and landed men for the first time on the icy continent. Prior to this, numerous nations had already claimed various parts of the continent and this process was only accelerated by the Swedish landing. The era of Antarctic exploration had begun.

The 1925 Australian Treaty officially defined the often vague and disputed borders on the continent. It was also notable for its limitations on resource extraction. Later a 1935 revision outright banned the extraction of resources on the continent, though in more recent times there have been talks to relax this law.
