The Erstwelt: What there is to know!


The Erstwelt is the designated term for the Universe that you are reading the factbooks of. It is, compared to the Terra Firma, a very different world with very different nations, factions, historical events, and people. The majority of the people in this world do not share the personality of their equivalent in Terra Firma.
This is the official World Assembly Dossier of the Erstwelt. This Dossier and the documents listed or cited within are the most recent gathered date through a series of pan-national census that all member-nations of the World Assembly have been obliged to respond with most sincerety.
Here you will find a short history of our planet, a list of the current accepted geographical National States, Factions, as well as a WA-promoted news hub, reporting some of the national events Happening in our world.
This Document has been provided for you by The World Assembly's Secretariat of Analytics.

World History

The Erstwelt's history has quite a few points of divergence with the timeline of the Terra Firma. Various historical events did not happen as they did in the Terra Firma. For example,

  • The Greeks managed to form a pseudo-central federation against the Persian Threat, but even the might of Alexander did not deter Persia.

  • The Rashidun Caliphate were forcefully kept in the Arabian Peninsula, from where they managed to slowly colonize North Africa.

  • The Sasanid Persian Dynasty survived until the Mongolian Empire's onslaught.

  • Christopher Columbus did not discover Hispaniola, instead finding the Cape of Africa, and a route towards India that did not move through the Mediterranean sea when the Ottoman Empire began terrorizing the Middle Sea.

  • A union of five provinces between modern Belgium and Netherlands was created in the area, and French Low Countries remained under French occupation until the end of the Napoleonic wars.

  • The First World War ended in favor of The Central Powers.

And various other events. You can visit the World Assembly's official Summary of our world's history in the links provided below.

Countries
The Erstwelt is home to a significantly lower number of countries. Colonization was much more rampant and much more stubborn to outlive its natural life, and wars were both more destructive and less territory oriented. The current roster of the countries in our world, as sorted by general power level, have been provided for your leisure. Please refer to the appropriate documents for more information on each of these kings, but the World Assembly's Hall of Inquiries is always open in case the viewer has any inquiries.

Important Factions and Organizations
In truth, there are more than a few factions in the Erstwelt. Countries, as they are wont to, form various alliances or treaties between each other in order to survive the wrath of more powerful nations, improve their own trade powers, or for common goals. There are multitude of factions, pacts, and organizations. The following are the most powerful, whether by numbers, by power projection, or by the proximity to realising their goals.
