I'm really looking forward to this---as this area needs more maps anyways!

Exactly what I was going to do along with a couple of other countries like Fractured America. ;)

I want to see Manchuria retake their ancestral lands back from Russia... plus what they should have in China.
Greater mongolia? An independent Tibet. Perhaps India will get some of its forfeited land back. Hong Kong and the former treaty ports could form a confederation. Taiwan is... independent still. And of course, Japan ought to take a slice for herself as well.

Should be good, lots of potential for this map!

Good ideas! Here is what I have so far with the map I'm working from. It's not complete yet, but I thought I would post this now. SO let me know.

Great start! I think inner China should be split up a lot more though.

Oh it will be soon enough! I am going to have Vietnam take over a 2 or 3 territories from China, and maybe have Taiwan take over a couple as well (hey this is a futuristic map and I'm aloud to have some artistic license right!?).

Well, I think Taiwan ought to stay Taiwan, personally. I mean, you want it rooted in some history and politics, right?

Bring in Manchuria, composed of Chifing, Hulanbur, Amur, Jilin and Liaoning.
Map and info... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchuria it looks like Korea and Manchuria would get into it over some land. Manchuria would be taking from Russia especially as well.

Korea... Make one Korea because without China NK is done for. Check out this ancient map:

Part of Xizang ought to be Tibet at its current, supposed borders. They're not known for fighting... ever... so I don't see any expansion potential there.

China took a few small pieces of India back in the 70s I believe, Chinese Kashmir and something else. So i imagine India would take that back plus a little extra.

I know the Cantonese are a separate language group, they encompass Guandong and Guanxi, but from what I understand, they've pretty much assimilated into Han China.

If vietnam took anything, it would be, maybe Hunan and Hainan. Traditionally, they've been more interested in grabbing Cambodia and Laos.

In China proper, the Han Chinese area, I'd say keep it whole. It's traditional China.

And again, i'd like to reiterate my enthusiasm for a sort of confederation or league of the former treaty ports... maybe through Shanghai in there as well.

I totally agree.

I totally disagree. It wouldn't be much of a "fractured" map if he kept it whole, now would it?

It's not like the 13 colonies are 1 bonus in fractured America. Inner China has a complex history of inner conflict and civil wars dating back thousands of years. It's only been "whole" as we think of it, for a couple hundred years.

Well, on FA New England is a bonus region, as is the traditional South... strangely labeled as libertarians. I always viewed the creation of bonus regions as going back somewhat to the major divisions a country has seen since its inception.

Furthermore... Han China is as old as, well, Han China at about 200 BCE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_Dynasty

Okay here is an almost finished draft. I think China is totally fractured, although I probably could eliminate Russia. But I'll leave that to you all. So take a gander and let me know!!

I still have to put in impassable's and such.
