My magnum opus. Why am I drawing this map? Perhaps, out of cucked jealousy for what other races have to enjoy. Make no mistake – these lines in the rocky ground are to be abolished, nations uprooted and culled, heritages violated. All in the spirit of the eternal war for the face of this planet. A free-for-all, with the cadence slower or faster at times, yet nonetheless inexorably driven to the ultimate resolution. Be it the German Drang nach Osten (rechristened by modern faggot academics as Ostsiedlung), the American Manifest Destiny, the genocidal Vietnamese Nam tiến, or the Chinese Chuang Guandong – the peculiarities of cultures vary, but not to the suicidal extent of the merciful neo-Christian empire. Thus, a scholar of diversity may appreciate both Communism and Islam for all the same reasons – for their fanaticism, virility and ruthlessness.
…A month has passed since I unveiled the v.9 of my contemporary cultural map of the planet, and now I have decided to improve it further. The highlight of this release is the addition of one more ethno-cultural region – the Buddhist & Shamanistic Asia.
My map should be understood as an artistic vision, hence the inconsistencies vis-à-vis the specific population percentages in given regions – thus, I have higher standards for ethnic purity in Europe and East Asia in regards to the Aryan and Mongoloid races respectively. Whereas the domain of Islam takes priority over the mixing of races in the Sahel or Malaysia.
As I mentioned before, some of my intentions were to show the cultural rifts between specific populations, rifts that may also find expression in political boundaries. With time, however, I have modified this approach – such as by splitting Ethiopia, or assigning Kashmir to Islam in the previous versions. (Getting anachronistically ahead of myself, drawing the line of current Russian control in Kherson did not work out either.)
And now, what did constantly grate my gears is the Sino-Hindu borderland region (effectively, Tibet). Its religion is Dharmic on the surface, Indian. Yet its very nature is more similar to parts of China, with its ancestor worship, little cults (Tibetan Bön – Zhuang Buluotuo?), remoteness (let alone the political control by the PRC). The issue in allocating an entirely new region, however, would be that neither Burma nor Tibet constitute a cultural force on their own. But what if united? Again I am combining quite different lands into one, but the logic is that Tibet is both connected to Burma via Buddhism and to Mongolia via shamanism. Essentially, it’s an “interior Asiatic” region with the exception of Turkestan (to which it is, admittedly, close in certain features). This also resolves the issue of assigning Mongolia to the Sinosphere – I’m not schizo, I fully understand that the savage Mongolia doesn’t even have its script derived from China – unlike Japan.
There are a few more tiny amendments. The female-mutilating Dagestan fits the realm of Islam, even though it lacks a titular nationality. Finally, I corrected the injustice and depicted the over 50% Russian (in the map: mutt) character of Northern Kazakhstan, a vestige of the Russian Empires (could not include the 100% Russian Semipalatinsk due to the format of the map). And then, I had an ingenious idea as to how to show the non-Turkic republics of Russia – namely, Mordovia, Mari El, Udmurtia and Komi (yes, the Finnic Komis are vaguely considered racially Aryan) – by assigning them to the Old European region! This way, the parochial, ancient character of the eastern Aryans may be underscored, as the neighbouring Finland has nothing on the original Finns who do not recognise same-sex unions.
Among more improvements: corrected Tripura’s religion (it’s Hindu); conversely, changed Assam from Hinduism to Islam as it’s the third Indian administrative unit with a significant percentage of its population’s being Muslims, at 34% and rising (after Lakshadweep and Kashmir); marked the savage lands of the Laps, Nenets and Chukchis – alongside admitting the Turkic character of Yakutia.
I always wished I could depict the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in Jilin, but adding the 84%-Han Liaoning to the shamanistic region is the next best thing (the connection of Korea to the Manchus has always been mysterious). I opted to remove Ossetia from the Iranian sphere as the latter is now by far characterised by its adherence to the Shia interpretation of Islam (not by the old Persian culture). Arunachal-Pradesh is highly religiously-diverse, with Christianity, Hinduism, and Buddhism/Donyi-Polo enjoying a 30% share of the population’s faith each. This new format also enables the depiction of the three-way partition of the island of Ceylon between the Aryan Buddhist Sinhalas, the ironically Aryan-worshipping Tamils, and the traitorous Muslim Tamils.
And for the closure, I gave significant attention to researching the state of Vietnam and the adjacent Thai areas. The provinces in Northwest and Northeast Vietnam have their Thai ethnicity statistics readily available. Similarly, the Cambodian areas of the south are quite disclosed – see this beautiful map of Buddhism. But the Central Highlands? I had to stumble upon the following marvelous list of Montagnard population per province to be sure as to how their genocide is proceeding (roughly 23% in Đăk Lăk, 36% in Kon Tum). Additionally, I snatched the chance to depict the Caodaist cultists of Tây Ninh, and the remaining Cham Hindus of Ninh Thuận – the province has a remarkable population of Christians and Muslims, but the Hindus are uniquely native, so I decided to underscore this fact.
…That was a version that did not become final, as I kept on iterating. Then came the Pashayi of Laghman, the Uzbeks of Faryab and Jowzjan, the Nizari Ismaili of Gilgit-Baltistan (but not the Pamiris of the Afghan part of Badakhshan), the Ismaili and Zaydi Shias of Jizan and Najran, the Ibadi minority of Zanzibar & Pemba, the Yazidis & Assyrians of Ninawah, the Druze of Jabal al-Druze, the Berber tribes of the Atlas and the Rif mountains in Morocco, the Shenwa, Shawiya, Kabyle and the Ibadi Mozabites of Gardaïa in Algeria, and the Zenati Berbers of Zuwarah in Libya, the Hungarians of Satu Mare… (And yes, I know the Ibadi are not Shia, but they are similar to them in that neither are Sunni.)
I used to lack a region to include many of the above groups – until I set the colour brown to mean “vaguely European autochthonous ethnicities with a passion to fight and die for their language or ethnic religion”. This way, I could make a distinction between the ancient White tribes in the Maghreb whose identity is currently undergoing pressure from both pan-Arab and Islamic forces.
Armenia, however, was an odd case. Their long-nosed people speak an Aryan language, but are a poster child for Christianity, and their pathetic showing in their latest showdown with the Turks indicates as inert a state as that of the Latinos or Russians. But I opted for an ingenuous compromise – by showing Armenia proper as purple (“old, dead, culturally confused remnant of a Roman Empire”), while painting Artsakh brown – and truly, isn’t that the fate of Aryan peoples all over the world now, especially in South Africa?
Incidentally, I returned to that Boer colony of old, discovering that the Whites there have been keeping their population numbers at a stable level over the past two decades.
As to the newfound appreciation for ethnic religions, I also came back to North America and marked a second arae after Québec as akin to the squabbling of Europe – namely, the arid state of Utah, full of Mormon zealots. Such a religious mutation would certainly have invoked high hopes in me, had I lived in the 1970s America – I fail to see why the Utah cultists are not viewed as a role-model by contemporary Aryan racists far and wide.
Now, truly for the closure, I had a surprisingly brilliant solution to my long-seated desire to depict both Galicia and Donbass in the Ukraine as centres of sorts of the fighting spirit of the Russian race. After all, it is indeed the Donetsk and Lugansk militia who are bearing the brunt of warfare, while the people of Mariupol, Kherson or Odessa are perfectly passive. Thus, I reverted to my original vision of Romania as an inert Orthodox land – now conjoined with the failed Novorossiya and Kharkov (and encompassing the little proud Transnistria – their ideals may be mutt, but their creation is nationalist). This way, the lands of the Don Cossacks are clearly visible, along with the ethnic Little Russian cossacks of Kuban. Maybe, that region will indeed gestate a new ethnicity under the pressure from the Turks around, as Whatifalthist proposes? (As regards the Far East – its [subsumed] Ukrainian character and contemporary separatist tendencies are well-known.)
Now, a brief description of the regions:
1. Juche Chosŏn – the abode of the most fanatical religion on the planet.
2. Sinosphere – Chinese civilisation barred from the sea by the American power in Japan.
3. Ancient Europa – the largely Aryan nations which value the separateness of their ways.
4. Turân – the myth of pan-Turkic nationalism.
5. Shīʿatu ʿAlī – the aggrieved followers of Ali.
6. Dār al-Islām – the realm of Tawheed.
7. Buddhist & Shamanistic Asia – the interior of the continent on the fringes of China.
8. Westernised Sinosphere – the corpse of the Empire of Japan taken over by the West.
9. Bhārata-varṣa – the oriental Hindus professing the Aryan faith.
10. Savage Lands – the inhospitable equatorial tribes of the Negro, Indian and Papuan.
11. Imperial Amalgamations – the domain of racial and cultural confusion.
12. Neo-Christian West – the ever-shrinking areas of the degenerating occidental Aryans.
