SW: Territorial Evolution of the United States 1 by ThanyTony SW: Territorial Evolution of the United States 1 by ThanyTony
The USL is one of the most interesting countries in the SW universe, mostly because of the changes in this universe, it gives the USL a VERY different story from the one it has in our world, but it can be VERY confusing as well, I remember when making the map for this country it was really difficult, but in the end I was able to make.

As such I decided to go deeper into this subject and begin explaining step by step the territorial evolution of the USL from its inception to modern times in 1945 and how it affected its residence, also as a chance to learn a little bit about US's history.

Without much to add, Enjoy!

I don't know, if you're talking about the way the continent looks, I don't know, they haven ever explained why the continents look like that in the SW, but it probably has something to do with the Neuroi.

Yeah, it's funny how it's just the Americas that looks this way.

I guess more specifically about religion in the SW universe.

Oh well, from the start, seeing the timeline chart you can see the three main Abrahamic religions got destroyed, Judaism and by extension Christianity could not be spread as the entire region of Judea was attacked and completely destroyed by Neuroi right around the time Jesus was there, and Islam couldn't rise up from Arabia as well because of Neuroi attacks in the Middle East.
Eliminating the Abrahamic religions from this unvierse is actually VERY important because without them, the use of Witches can go fully unstopped without them being put to death or burn at the stake.

Also events like The Crusades, The Black Death and The Thirty Years war never happened in the timeline, which again is thanks to the elimination of these religions.

This would allow the other religions that already existed to evolve and become new entities through history, and due to many of them being ok with witchcraft and magical things (which would be considered pagan by the Abrahamic religions) it makes a world with a MASSIVE dependance on witches very plausible.

I made some charts detailing the religions that I think would exist in the SW where I go into far more detail, I've only made a few but I'll make more in the future.

But yeah, mostly it is very careful especulation and adaptation of history to the conditions the SW universe provides to me in order to fill the gaps.

I actually do no agree that the Abrahamic religions would have been destroyed for a couple of reasons.
Judaism has been (At the time of the Judean purge) well established. Small Enclaves in areas like Egypt and Ethiopia would have allowed the religion to survive in some form. Enclaves in Rome also existed before this time. Now granted, this is looking at the SW universe in comparison to our world. But given how similar the two timelines are, I believe that at the very least one Abrahamic religion would have survived, possible even having some splinter groups that spread out.
There is also the case of converts. During the early years, the Jewish faith was famous for converting others to Judaism. Now, to be fair, I am not saying that their is a Jewish Roman Empire. However, given the loss of the Temple and life, there would be a surge in missionary work from the Jewish population. Also, because of a lack of Christianity, the Jewish population may not have been persecuted as harshly due to its early connection to Christianity, allowing Judaism to thrive.
Then again, this is just what I think. I am probably very wrong.

You're forgeting one key detail and this is why even if it had survived, it would have survived, it was doomed to dissapear and be lost to history, The Abrahmic Religions are very patriarchal and very anti paganism, two things that go against the very nature of a Witch.

Just think about this scenario, how do you think the people of a small town in Nubia would react if some jew guy came and said:

"Those girls that protect you from the almost undefeatable monsters that kill lots of your people and destroy your towns and cities are evil, they are agaisnt the ways of our lord the weird bearded fuck in the sky and those girls should be at home obeying heping in the house while the MEN go out and take the monsters out, it is the word of God".

How do you think the villagers would have reacted to that? I'd say pretty negatively, unless Judaism evolved to adopt aceptance of witches, became more equal in gender threatment and suddenly grew respect for paganism (Which I HARDLY believe it is capable of)...no way it would have survived in the SW universe, it could have survived for a couple of years, but due to its own ideals, it would have been doomed to fade in a world that doesn't need it and instead needs the witches, and a religion that is against the witches would have been rejected by almost everyone, it was doomed either way.
