Post-Apocalyptic Europe by theSuricateProject Post-Apocalyptic Europe by theSuricateProject
This is a zoom on my previous map: thesuricateproject.deviantart.…
When the Atlantic flooded Europe, the entire continent was re-shaped. In the West, Scotland became an island, so they decided to become independent. The Windsor dynasty was overthrown and replaced by a new monarchy. 
Paris was flooded so France collapsed and was divided in many states such as Alsace, Brittany, Aquitaine, Occitania.  After a while, the center of France was colonized by a corporation, Blackspace, a galactic contractor. 
Italy exploded too and came back to the era of condottieres and warlords. It is still pretty unstable. 
Bavaria took its independence, Germany mostly disappeared, and Netherlands (renamed Neverlands by some drug-addict lunatic) invaded most of the country. 
Switzerland, now named 'the Confederation', was mostly untouched and took advantage of the situation by invaded neighbouring countries. 
When Russia was nuked and zombified, the Russian government and many citizens fled to Belarus and the two countries became one: the Two Russias. Their new capital city was Miskow. Now the Two Russias are a dictatorship. 
Greece, mostly untouched by the floods, decided to reconquer Thrace and founded a new Istanbul: the Great Golden City (mostly a huge seaside resort). Greece is one of the few democracies, but because "democracy is so overrated", they are considering adopting a dictatorship or a monarchy. 
Around 2100, Northern Greece, destabilized because of Turkish refugees, took its independence and became the Free Byzantine State, another democracy (ruled by an elected emperor). Other rebels created "the Oracle's Kingdom" and "the Monk Army" -- a coalition of Orthodox monasteries. 
In 2074, the SURimperial Armies came to Europe. Far from the democratic paradise it used to be, Europe was now a neo-feudal chaotic hell, and it was pretty easy to invade. They invaded most of Spain, but they were defeated in 2084 by Blackspace, Andorra and Aquitaine and the UK. A peace treaty enabled the UK to get a  big chunk of Andalusia and Morocco -- terraformed and nicknamed "New South England". 
In 2094, the SURimperial Emperor wed the Duke of Brittany and Brittany became part of the Empire. Now, the SURempire doesn't really care about these provinces - because now, Europe is really poor, quite backwards, obsessed with their glorious past and always quarreling for shitty reasons. 
DISCLAIMER. Some towns may be or may not be misplaced, that is because I'm not a geography expert. BUT in some cases, the misplaced towns are on purpose: for example, Nantes would actually be under water, but was rebuilt further away by refugees. 
Most of the flags come from Wikicommons. I only did the flags for: UK, Kingdom of the Channel, Blackspace, Two Russias, the Consulate, Cartago, SURempire, Caucasus.

What did you use to create this awesome map ? :-?

Photoshop :)
The coastlines come from calculatedearth.com/index.php (sea level: +150m), the fonts are from Dafont (Hand of Sean for the towns, Lafayet Scripts for the seas and KG Blank Space for the countries). I drew the scrolls and monsters myself. The flags mostly come from Wikicommons, except United Kingdom, Blackspace, Two Russias, SPQR, SURempire, Cartago, Oracle's Kingdom which were made by me. 
Also, I used free textures found on the Internet and many effects from Photoshop to give the grunge effect to this map.

No state's land must be Slovakia! Also why Serbia took over Hungary.

No state's land is just anarchists gathered in one place to live their dream :p it just happens to be there for no good reason. (maybe because it was really unstable politically)
About Hungary, poor Hungary was just to busy with the Danube flooding almost all the country, so the Serbs just invaded them. (I guess it wouldn't be a really stable country, but most countries on this map aren't really stable^^)

Not much. Maybe refugees so, so probably wars or conflicts^^ (it's the apocalypse after all, nobody's safe!)

Mmm, this is so interesting! A question, if you don't mind; what do you think happened to my wee little Cyprus?
Considering our long history of being invaded and conquered because of our strategic geography (heck, we were still a British colony not sixty years ago),
what do you say became of us with the apocalypse? I don't think my seaside city survived the floods though ;_;

:iconthesuricateproject:
theSuricateProject Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Cyprus is pretty happy I think ^^ It's one of the few countries with not much casualties, because they weren't involved either in Nuclear Apocalypse, nor Alien Apocalypse. And they weren't invaded either!

Looks like Czech Republic moved a bit on west, so now Poland isn't neighbour of Germany x3
The other thing I saw is "Monk Army" But I don't see where is it on map x.x
I'm only hoping that islam didn't take over Europe, just don't get this offensive, I meant that other religions are in Europe still, aswell.

Map is great, looks beautiful. Unfortunalety, looking at the time like 2074 or 2094, I'll be ash in urn, so I won't be able to see how great is Europe at these times.

First, thank you^^ :)

Yep. Countries moved quite a lot, because floods. There were probably many many wars. I think even the cultures would be really different: some countries here would be mixes of cultures. 

Monk Army is north of Greece, near Istanbul. 

As for Islam... I think it's impossible for it to take over Europe. In this world, Islam followed the same path as Christianity did: it lost its influence, mostly because of the different apocalypses that happened in the world. People wouldn't understand why Allah let almost everybody die. The old religions lost a lot of influence in this world, but new religions arose, such as a Cthulhu cult ("the Destroyer of Worlds -- sems appropriate), or a feminist religion, or a cannibal religion (in Transylvania). There are more religions in this world than in ours, so most countries are secular countries and tolerate all religions.

Cannibal religion seems interesting x3
If they will colonize Antarctica, I'll move from Europe there, so I'll not see the wars. I hope. If people well be closed and not willing to talk, then I will talk with penguins :3

"Hello, mister. How are you?"
"Prrrr."
"Yes, days is nice. Cold and snowy aswell."
"Prrrr!"
"I'm sorry, I forgot about fish. I will bring one tomorrow."
"Prrr"

No, I don't like testing on animals.
But I would be pleasured with something that would understand their language. Like some kind of elixir. Or, if needed, augmentation. Like, you know, you sit alone in your small home with your cat, on chair near table with dinner and you start to talk like normal people. He understands your language and you understand what he "meows" to you. Like instead of "meow" you hear "You're right, human."

Okay, I'm pretty sure that says "North Sea," but I can't stop thinking it looks like "Darth Sea." I am now envisioning a postapocalyptic conflict between Star Wars fans.
