South America, circa 2064 by Nederbird South America, circa 2064 by Nederbird
Having a lot of time on my hands, I decided to make another map, this time North America's southern sibling. I also included Antarctica, since it only has one country occupying it anyway.

While it may look like South America survived much of the chaos the rest of the world went through, it isn't quite true. Brazil was plague by revolts, organized crime and other forms of violence ever since WWII, while Peru had a grand uprising, which resultet in balance shifting away from the Spanish language and Latino culture to favour indigenous cultures in media, education etc. East Guyana broke away from France while the Falklands became independent as well, and Argentina lost half of its territory.

Colombia attacked and invaded Venezuela after the latter refused to pay war indemnities to Colombia. The result was a Colombian victory in which the richer Venezuela was forced to pay reparations for both WWIII and the most recent war, putting a heavy strain on Venezuela's economy.

Also, the Antarctica represented here is called the Antarctic Technocracy and is a state organized by the resident scientists who were left behind and forgotten during WWIII. It has frosty relations with most states except for Patagonia, the Mapuche Federation, Sao Paulo and the Southern African countries. It has very strained relations with the Falklands ever since Antarctica invaded and annexed South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, which'd previously belonged to the Falklands.

Out of curiosity, what is the "I" between Argentina and Patagonia?

Whenever global warning is still present or climatic change made Antarctica peninsula inhabitable, don't forget to bring sunscreen and a hat when the ozone hole is expected to get bigger. Also the Europeanized cultures of Argentina, Uruguay and Chile should be extensions of the EU (more like the council of Europe like Norway and Switzerland aren't in the EU, but are represented in the Union except they don't vote), while the Falkland Islands and French Guyana are countries with limited autonomy from Britain and France respectively. +

Good you point that out, I didn't know that the southern South American were so "European" culturally, I'll take that into account.

In this timeline, the Falklands, French Guyana and other such overseas territories all voted for independence when their "motherlands" were incorporated into the European Federation, though they still remain under its influence.

Apart from a very small part of it that seceded and became a part of the Mapuche Federation, Chile remained relatively stable, especially compared with most other South American countries.

If such a successful secession took place, the Mapuche Federation would have gotten a larger territory. Essentially all land between the Bío-Bío River and latitude 42° South.

From Chile:
- Southern Bío-Bío región
- Araucanía región (has the most Mapuche people of any region)
- Los Ríos and Los Lagos regions

From Argentina:
- The whole of Neuquén province (which is slightly larger than the region you depicted; I would certainly have conquered Bariloche if I was them :D )
- The western halves of Río Negro and Chubut provinces

This would also mean that the Patagonia people would take over both Western and Eastern sides. Western Patagonia would be even more isolated otherwise, as such a political change would cut all land links to Chile.

Also, the Lafkenche, Mapuche people of the coast. You can't make many traditional Mapuche dishes without cochayuyo or luche, which are marine algae you'd rather not have to import as a landlocked country.

Actually, the Argentines have had a presence on the island several times throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, but never a very lasting one. However, if you read the description, you'll see that the Falklands aren't part of Argentina on this map.

No, soy sueco.

Listen, this is not a politically motivated thing, I just split it because it seemed like an interesting idea. The Republic of Patagonia is based on the historical Kingdom or Araucania and Patagonia, which never really came into fruition, but was supposed to more or less incorporate the territories that the Patagonia in that picture does.

Btw, I did split my own country. Take a look at Europe and thou'll see that Sweden lost it's northern provinces to Sápmi while Aaland is independent. Argentina is not the only nation to suffer this fate, almost every country on Earth suffered this overhaul, which thou'll see if thou take thy time and look through the other pics.
