Lovely looking map.
Only one thing, the different label sizes.... I think it would look better if they were all pretty much the same size.

Title is really nice.

I believe that aeronautic is right, I noticed that it is difficult to pack the name of the territory inside the territory to which it belongs or possibly outside where possible but not to enter the field of another territory
For example
Congo and french congo
w.sahara and mauritania
and Mali & Burkina Faso
Im just saying, maybe w sahara could fit in a little better, but Congo,to me it is not a problem in any sense other than aesthetically and it might be confusing to someone.
I think there is a space to pack it a little nicer and I think the hoodlum deliberately left it so we would have something to comment on.

i know with the name sizes i would normally make them the one size. i think at the time of creating this, i may have felt that the map was big, scrolly, and wanted to fill in some space.
i'll post an edit with same size labels soon

Overall stunning look. Impassibles are quite nice but maybe they could be nicer, I don't know.

Perhaps a bit of variation in font size could stay, just a bit, not much. Sizes apart I like the font.
I think Austro-Hungarian Empire can be shortened as Austria-Hungary,
and Togo & Benin maybe can be just Togo (or just Benin).

Check sea tags: GulF of Guinea

I like the location (extra-continental) and the "Alkebulan Africa" title.
Maybe a small subtitle saying: "Africa + Southern Europe + Middle East", trivial but fair...

Looks great and I agree with the labelling.
I’m not sure what date in history you’re going for, but, at the risk of sounding pedantic, the Austro-Hungarian empire and Saudi Arabia did not not co-exist. If you’re going for pre WW1 then just call it Arabia. Does C.A.R. also fit with time period?

Yep I also see a mix of ancient and modern countries.
I think it's Hoodlum's style, not entirely real, not entirely fictional, just a middle way.

If you publish this map, then maybe some mainstream media outlets will publish articles about this site, saying that white guys are supporting colonization and white priviledge and at the end you will be forced to take down this site because of accusation of racism and you will forced to publically excuse yourself for being a white racist man. Think of this, isnt that unrealistic. Just imagnie the headlines....
