Just the claims? Not the nations themselves? Okay, I have some work to do on the map.

Apologies for the misunderstanding, what I mean is please only show your own nation and claims on the maps.

Jaiteaes. As the systems are being built and most of it is WIP i can understand the confusion. However the three provinces you start with are ment to be 750 pixels each. You can easily see this using something like the magic wand tool in paint.net

And to accompany it, a history of the glorious empire of francia:

Ser Corliss Penny gave the clan chief an incredulous look. "Do you want to die, Wull?"

That seemed to amuse the northman. "I want to live forever in a land where summer lasts a thousand years. I want a castle in the clouds where I can look down over the world. I want to be six-and-twenty again. When I was six-and-twenty I could fight all day and fuck all night. What men want does not matter.

"Winter is almost upon us, boy. And winter is death. I would sooner my men die fighting for the Ned's little girl than alone and hungry in the snow, weeping tears that freeze upon their cheeks. No one sings songs of men who die like that. As for me, I am old. This will be my last winter. Let me bathe in Bolton blood before I die. I want to feel it spatter across my face when my axe bites deep into a Bolton skull. I want to lick it off my lips and die with the taste of it on my tongue."

I'm glad this is starting in the 1800s. I assume that colonization systems will be in place? I'd like to see some new world colonization and maybe the Scramble for Africa. What will the time frame be? 1 week is 2 years maybe? Just ideas.

I believe we've decided on a 1 week = 4 years timeframe.

Nation Name: The Kingdom of Irland and the Isles

National Flag:
DE FLEG:

Zones of Control and Claims:
Maps:





Capital City: Dyflin

Other major cities: Stjórnavágr, Eriksfjord

Government Type: Absolute Monarchy

Economic System: Capitalism

Leader Name: King Magnus VII Magnusson Crovan

Ruling Political Faction: The Nobility

History:
Pre 1150 - No Norman Conquest of Ireland occurs.
1154 - Godred II Olafsson ascends to the throne.
1155 - Under the harsh rule of King Godred II, Jarl Thorfinn Ottarsson flees to Somerled, Lord of Argyll and requests aid in a mission to become the new king. Somerled agrees, and begins a coup.
1156 - The Somerled and Thorfinn are executed by the king and their coup crushed.
1160 - King Godred II begins a campaign to bring Irland under his control. Allying with the most powerful Irish chiefs and promising them titles of nobility in exchange for aid, he begins his invasion.
1164 - After a long and bloody war, the entire island of Irland eventually comes under the control of King Godred II. Irish chiefs who did not submit are replaced by Norse Jarls, and those who did submit are given Jarldoms of their own.
1165 - Godred II dies of a pox. Magnus I Godredsson ascends to the throne at the age of 23.
1180 - King Magnus I sends out five expeditions with orders to explore the North Sea and return with information on the islands within it.
1181 - Four of the expeditions return, bringing a large amount of information. King Magnus I begins an effort to colonise the islands.
1200 - Magnus I dies of old age at 58. King Magnus II ascends to the throne at the age of 27.
1237 - Magnus II dies of a cough at 64. King Magnus III ascends to the throne at the age of 31
1249 - Magnus III dies of an axe-wound sustained whilst duelling at age 43. Magnus IV ascends to the throne at age 23
1263 - Magnus IV aids in the Norweigan invasion of Scotland, in exchange for the marriage of his heir and a Norweigan princess.
1312 - Alexander I ascends to the throne at age 38.
1315 - Refusing the request of the Pope to denounce the heresy that has established itself in the Kingdom of Irland and the Isles, Alexander I is excommunicated. Alexander I replies that the Pope has no hold over true believers in the Trinity, and in conjunction with several prominent clergymen who hold little loyalty to the Pope, sets himself up as the chief religious authority in the kingdom. He declares that the Insular faith is the one true faith, but assures religious minorities in the realm that tolerance is a great virtue in the eyes of the Trinity and that no man should be persecuted for his faith.
1316 - The Pope excommunicates all those who consider themselves to be of the Insular faith, denouncing them as heretics. For a time it seems that religious war may break out, but none does.
1400 - The colonisation of the North Sea islands is mostly complete, with established towns beginning to thrive. A goldsmithing industry develops in Island. Minor settlements arise in Vinland.
1600 - Much of the population of Irland is Nordicised, with much of the Nobility only speaking Irlandic, at this time significantly different from other Norse languages.
1760 - Alexander V dies of gout at age 54. Magnus V ascends to the throne at age 26.
1789 - Magnus V dies of a fever at age 55. Magnus VI ascends to the throne at age 32.
1796 - King Magnus VI issues a declaration, claiming much of North America to be his by Divine Right and Right of Discovery. His full title becomes His Royal Majesty Magnus VI Magnusson, by Grace of the Allfather King of Irland and the Isles, Jarl of Dyflin and of Søreyar and of Grønland and of Island and of Orkney and of Mann and of Føroyar and of Hetland, Lord of Vinland and of Bjørnland and of Fjelland and of Gressland and of Karland, Defender of the Faith and Protector of the Realm.

Nation Name: The Kingdom of Slovenes
National Flag: http://i.imgur.com/eIhaDHD.png
Zones of Control and Claims: http://i.imgur.com/J00x8re.png
Capital City: Ljubljana
Government Type: Consitutional Monarchy
Economic System: Capitalist
Leader Name: His Majesty Zvonko Zdravko
Ruling Political Faction: Konservativna Stranka Slovenije
History: The Slovenian Kingdom was founded when Slovenian nobles declared independence from Hungary in 1699. The Hungarians, weary from a recent war, couldn't stamp down this revolution. The main noble house of Zdravko took the Slovenian throne and a long period of peace reigned, resulting in a large economic and population growth. In 1762, a large Croatian revolt took place. The Croatians, feeling neglected, demanded equal rights to Slovenes. The then king decided to grant them the rights, to the dismay of the nobles. In 1790, Zvonko Zdravko ascended the throne.

Nation Name: Persia
National Flag:
Spoiler:
Zones of Control and Claims:
ZoC:
Spoiler:
Green: Isfahan, Orange: Shiraz Purple: Mahshahr
Claim;
Spoiler:
The transparent orange is the claim, and pink is considered in the 'sphere of influence'
Capital City: Isfahan
Government Type: Absolute Monarchy, with powerful local governors (Shahrabs)
Economic System: Centralised
Leader Name: Shah Abbas IV
Ruling Political Faction: The Safavid Dynasty
History: The early collapse of the Ottoman empire due to the resurgent Byzantines meant there were enough government troops to prevent the fall of Isfahan to Afhgan rebels in 1722, which historically led to the end of the Safavid Dynasty. However, this hastily cobbled-together force still took major losses in crushing the rebels, and the nation was practically defenceless against attacks by other tribes for the subsequent two decades. Abbas III managed to rebuild the military and stop the incursions, but made limited progress rebuilding the country. His recent death has left his son, Shah Abbas IV, with practical control only of the area around Isfahan and a few scraps across the Persian gulf. Although the challenges facing him are vast, the new Shah has a united people, a recovering economy, and a formidable military; and he is determined to return Persia to her former glory.

Leader Name: Emperadora Isabela III de El Imperio Iberico, incluyendo los Reinos de Leon, Andalucia, y Aragon.

Ruling Political Faction: Trastámara dynasty

History:
History:
Early History
    Parts of Spain first came under Roman rule during the Second Punic War, where they captured Carthaginian trade colonies along the Eastern Coast. Over two centuries, the Romans conquered the Peninsula and Romanized the population. They established most of the customs, languages, and cultures that exist today, and in the 1st century they spread Christianity there.
    In the 400s the Roman hold on the peninsula left, with the Suebi, Vandals, and Alans moving into Gaul and the Visigoths pushing them across the Pyrenees. The tribes settled in various regions of Spain and Portugal, however, the Visigoths united the Peninsula as Hispania, establishing their capital in Toledo.

Middle Ages:
     In 711, Moorish Tribes of the to-be Ummayad Caliphate crossed the Gibraltair and quickly conquered the Visigothic Empire and most of Iberia. However, the Battle of Covadonga in 732 secured the safety of the Kingdom of Asturias in the northern coast, and in 739 Asturias secured Galicia from the Ummayads.
   Through gradual infighting and decadence in the Caliphate, the Ummayad empire became weak and fractured in rival Muslim kingdoms. This opportunity was seized by Asturias, now extending southwards towards Salamanca.
   In 1065 came the reign of Alfonso VI, heraled as the father of modern Iberia.  When his father died, he took the throne of León. Using a combination of war and intruige, he seized the thrones of his two brothers and declared his personal holy war on the fractured Muslim Kingdoms, setting Cordóba as his prize.
   Alfonso VI showed his ruthlessness at the Seige of Toledo. Upon making it inside the walls, he ordered his soldiers to mount his catapults upon the walls and continued to shower the city in projectiles for another day before advancing into the city.  In later battles, some Muslim outposts surrendered upon his arrival, fearing his ruthlessness and the safety of their populous.
   In 1089, Alfonso's army reached the walls of Cordobá.  For 20 days, the army reigned projectiles down on then the richest city in Europe, however, supplies were running dangerouly low, due to hit and run attacks on his supply train.  Then, on the 21st day, his forces managed to seize the walls of the city. However, from there, he ordered oil poured down from the walls into the streets, then set the city aflame. It is said that the smoke could be seen from Paris and the fire shown brighter than the sun that night.  Once the dust settled, hardly more than rubble and smoldered brick remained of the once most sophisticated city in Europe.
  Alfonso managed to capture Sevilla in 1104, his empire reaching now from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean. He also cemented his family claims in Portugal and Aragon, which would prove priceless in the reign of Isabella the Catholic.
  Because of his rampant destruction againt the Muslim kingdoms, many of the infrastructure and population base in the south was destroyed, while the cities in the north flourished from Moorish gold.  This imbalance of power still stands today.  However, Alfonso's descendents did not live up to his greatness, and for 3 centuries the Iberian throne dealt with petty civil wars and incompetent kings.  However, in 1281 the University of Salamanca was founded and in 1342 the Capital moved from León to Salamanca.
 
Imperial Spain
   In 1474, Isabella the Catholic inherited the throne of the Castilla and León. Through a marriage with King Ferdinand II of Aragon, she ensured the kingdoms unified for the future Empire, effectively doubling it' size.  However, Isabella still had rough times ahead of her.  In 1475, her brother Alfonso crossed into Spain in his war for the throne. However, with the reinforcement troops from her husband in Aragon, she managed to take the war to Portugal.  Through 1478, she seized Portuguese territory and had decisive victories. In 1478, she turned down critical African territory for seizing her claim on the Portuguese throne.
 With almost the entirety of Iberia under their control, the Catholic monarchs had essentially assured the entirety of the peninsula for their descendents. In 1492, the Spanish Monarchs conquered the final Muslim outpost in Granada, ending more then 700 years of their occupation.
  For the next hundred and fifty years, the unified Iberian Empire expanded throught the Mediterranean and later Europe, including Southern France and Italy. In the reign of Charles I and Phillip II, Spanish Monarchs reigned on the Hasburg thrones.  However, with many inbred monarchs and civil wars, the Iberian power beganed to wane in the 1700's, especially with growing military strength of the French.  The Empire gradually came overstretched in its own home territory, which led in 1743 to the splitting off of the semi-autonomous kingdoms Andalusia and Aragon. This overstretching has also caused, in the lesser populated and mountainous regions of the Empire, large amounts of mostly ungoverned land.
  Now comes a pivitol age in the nations history. Will it expand West, for the virginal lands of the West Indies? Or will it expand into the crowded political scene of Western Europe? It is all in the hands of Isabel III, Empress of Iberia.

Mine? How am I supposed to count the individual pixels? If your talking about the grey, that's just the colonial claims.

Edit: I do see what you are talking about. I did that on purpose, it ties into my history. Since I want my history to be long and it will talk some time to finish typing it, here's the short explanation: during the Reconquista, the Leonese and Castillan (at the time just northern Spain) went all out against the Moors and pretty much burnt Cordoba and the other major cities to the ground. Thus my Capital (the beautiful city and historic wonder of Salamanca). Leon controls all of Portugal as well to prevent separatist tensions that would arise from being an independent province as well. Would adding maybe the islands and a little chunk of Aragon or Toledo balance out the southern province? It's the smallest out of the three.

As well, there is no need to start a war over claims in the entirety of the two Americas, Charzy. If anything, you should be happier with what you've got. I have no resources except some rare plants in sight. Speaking of which...

You cant go above 750 pixels for a city as its Zone of Control. In Paint.Net and GIMP there are features that allow you to count these pixels without counting manually.

Use paint.net, magic wand.
In the top left there's a thing that says "Flood Mode:" and then there's a lightbulb button. Click it to change between contiguous selection and global selection.
Make it global. Now when you click on a colour, you can see in the bottom right how many pixels of that colour are on the map.
If it selects more, you can adjust tolerance until it only takes one colour.
