Ever since the release of v.16 on July 1st-8th, 2022, I had an illusion that I marked everything befitting my conception of the world. And yet, a month later, some more memories crept in.

On August 19th (v. 17-19), I lent my attention to the three regions: Albania, Kurdistan, and Jászság. Thus, I drew the remaining Catholic and Orthodox Christian Albanians (cf. these maps), painted the Turkish Kurds as a Muslim nation (with the exception of the vaguely Shiite Alevis), designated Iranian Azerbaijan as part of Turân (the Turks there revolted in 2020, eager for Armenian blood), and finally remembered the fellow travellers of the Cumans in Pannonia (Kunság) – the ancient Aryan Ossetians of Jászság. Some other updates include the depiction of the ancient Griko and Arbëreshë communities in Apulia and Calabria in Italy, the Arvanites in Attica, the Hungarians of the Nitra region of Slovakia, the renewed push for Syrian Hatay, and the immense Muslim immigrant polities of Moscow and Saint Petersburg (numbering in the millions, as per Grant Mufty Ravil Gainutdinov, a Turk). Other changes encompass depicting a more dire situation in France and Germany (the Lyon agglomeration, the Blue Banana of the BTC in the Ruhr, Frankfurt and Württemberg), the Basque language in the northern Navarra region, and the notorious Russian minority areas in Livonia and Esthonia. In light of these changes, I chose to mark Mitrovica as Serb as the only way to depict North Kosovo on this map (over which a war may or may not break out soon™). Regarding the Syrian Civil War – I changed Idlib Governorate to Islamic to demonstrate Al-Nusra Front’s presence there, and took a plunge to paint as Turkish the Governorate of Aleppo – slightly anachronistic at this point, but it can’t help acknowledging that the Turks did ruin that entire part of the Arab Republic.

The v.20 of 2022-08-27 was chiefly induced by my rediscovery of another Kurdish religion – Yarsanism, which I duly marked in the Persian province of Kermanshah. Then I found out that while the Assyrian population of Urmia might have been expelled over the River Styx by big Turkish men (along with the hated Armenians), Mahabad is considered a capital of sorts of Iranian Kurdistan. Another addition was the depiction of the Azerbaijani minorities – the Avars, Lezgins, Tats and the Ingiloy Georgians in the north-west, and the Iranian Talysh in the south. The latter even briefly had a secessionist republic in 1993, although it might have been an arbitrary political intrigue. I long poured over the readily-available sources such as these 2009 census figures, and based on this obscure research document, decided to include Yardımlı in the Talysh region. I refreshed my knowledge of the Baloch terrorists in Iran – no matter how awkward it looks. And finally, to crown the inflation of my standards over time, I caved in to mark the ancient Turkish population of Chaharmahal – even though the more prominent Qashqai Turks of Fars remain outside.

And so it is. I would better publish it as soon as possible, lest it grow outdated, with the imminent Second Armenian Genocide and all. (Indeed, I depicted Artsakh as ancient Aryan to underline its desperate situation contrasting with the resignation of mainland Armenia).

It’s curious how both Irân and Türkiye hold a knife to one another’s throat.

Addendum as of 2022-08-29: as may be expected of my continuously relaxing the already-lax rules, I have returned to the region of Indochina (now apparently a racist geographical name for the peninsula) with the intention of visualising the ancient Chinese immigrant communities. Thus, I marked the Thai Chinese (“14% of the population”) in Bangkok and Samut Sakhon (“Chinese River” originally), the largely-genocided Indonesian Chinese in hiding of the Riau Islands, the Malay Chinese of Labuan and Brunei-Muara (the Wikipedia article of the latter is faulty, confuses the country percentages with the districts’ ones), and in the end returned to the Philippines, where the Sino-Fililipinos don’t feature compact areas of settlement either, but whose penetration of that society seems immense.

Regarding the Sino-Burmese – I was quite befuddled upon learning that the Chinese have been successfully colonising the Mandalay region of that country. Depicting them as part of the Westernised Sinosphere does muddle the definition of the region – which combines the hungry ghost of the Empire of Japan, the overseas Chinese, and now this… overland community.

P.S. The Kouloughli Turks of Tlemcen. The Zanj of Basra.

P.P.S. The Yazidis of Armavir.

A revision of 2022-09-07: the Hòa Hảo cult of An Giang, the Javanese Muslim settlers in Irian Jaya, and the residual highlander Negritos of the Philippines (namely, the Igorot of Luzon and the Lumad of Mindanao).

The one-past-midnight change: Westernised Sinosphere > Colonial Sinosphere. An ambiguous term that may indicate both the American power in Japan and the Chinese colonisation of the South Seas. The antonym: the sovereign Sinosphere of the Communists.

The v.24 of 2022-09-13: the Turks of Tuva & Bayan-Ölgii.

The v.25 of 2022-09-23: paradoxically, it was my simplified religious map that took me back to the question of Cuba, and the next day, I finally remembered the conundrum of the Sikhs in Punjab. The real answer to Cuba has always been their racial inferiority – this is where I disagree with Chechar about any kind of a correct ideology for the whole of Latin America. The Sikhs, however, pose a challenge to my categories, as they are, like the Yarsanis, a young cult. This led me to experiment with adding a completely new region, specifically tailored to the non-European residue ethnicities, from the Berbers to the Cao Đài (attempt – here, the colour used: either c0a182 or ccac8c), but in the end, it didn’t feel right to have a culture composed of unrelated nationalities – yes, even in such a schizo creation of mine, I tend to view both the Poles and the Yazidis as some kind of a united front against the universalist ideologies of Christianity and Islam.

In the end, I resisted touching the Marxist Cubans, the miscegenated Malagasy or the outright Christianised Austronesians in Taiwan, but did proceed with:
1) Niger state of Nigeria > Muslim;
2) Oromia state of Ethiopia > Negro;
3) Punjab state of India > vaguely nationalist Aryan;
4) Arakan state of Burma > Buddhist (the Rohingya have been cleansed);
5) Hong Kong > Christian hybrids (the Year Book sourced in this article puts the number of Christians there at ca. 27% – much higher than the ✡︎CIA’s estimate of 12%);
6) the Ryukyuans > shamanist;
7) the Ainus of Hokkaido > shamanist;
8) Singapore > hybridised mutts;
9) Sinosphere’s colour: ffff33 > f4ed5a.

Ethno-Cultural Map of the World in 2022 CE

    1. Siam was one of the few lands that avoided European conquest/colonisation, has to this day preserved its antique monarchy, is 14% Chinese (higher race). Unlike Burma, is not a failed state.

      Regarding the shamanistic cultures, it’s quite incredible that the Liadong Peninsula area is less integrated into China than the more remote areas of Manchuria further north-east.

      > The significant Manchu population, although strongly assimilated to the Han Chinese and practicing Chinese religions, also retains its own pure Manchu shamanism. At the same time, the local religion of the Han people throughout Manchuria has developed patterns of deities, ideas, and practices inherited from Manchu and Tungus shamanism, making it quite different from central and southern Chinese folk religion. The Mongol ethnic minority either follows the Mongolian folk religion and shamanism, or Tibetan Buddhism.

      1. “Prag is German, but the Czechs are some of the slimiest people imaginable. Masqueraded as a great power – surrendered without a shot fired – got treated incredibly humanely, the safest place in belligerent Europe – sheltered English terrorists who killed Heydrich – genocided the Sudeten Germans with the tacit approval of Stalin and Truman – now are a faithful minion of the homo West.”

        The adulation of perverted Germans – the eternal destroyers of Europe – is cringe and pathetic.
        Germans have bestiality pride parades, they demand now full legalization of bestiality because traveling to the animals brothels in Denmark is expensive apparently.
        There are stories about dogs disappearing from the streets of Athens and ending up in animal clandestine brothels in Germany.
        Their women travel to fuck normal masculine brown and black men around the Mediterranean basin and even places in Sub-Saharan Africa.

        Once in Germany a man willingly let another man cut off his penis and they cooked it and ate it together.
        The same Germany madhouse where one degenerate consented to being killed and having his sexual organs eaten by another degenerate.

        What kind of trash venerate such despicable human garbage?
