India is divided on nationalist lines, rather than religious lines, along with many of the former Princely States remaining independent (many having to unite together in a German Empire/ UAE like monarchy). This goes very, very poorly as their are many Religious uprisings, the Hindu uprisings supported by the Ganges Union (steadily growing in size as states are annexed into the union), and the Muslim uprisings sponsored by the Indus Union (the IU being more of an alliance than a political union), with both having the ultimate desired result of reuniting most, if not all, of India under either Islam or Hinduism. There's also many rebels who just want to form their own independent state. Both the Ganges Union and the Indus Union bank on states having marginalized religions or nationalities, with Hinduism (or Islam) being the only force unifying them.
Opposing both the Ganges Union and the Indus Union are the Independentists, although they're more concerned with the Ganges Union than the Indus Union. To some extent, many members of the Independentists (including 2/3 of the Triumvirate, Nepal and Tamlia) want to carve up the old Princely States into more proper Nation States, but as long as Rajputana has any sort of power, this is not going to happen.
The Independentists are supported by the United States, the Ganges Union by the Soviet Union, and the Indus Union by PRChina

This is going to be more writing than map, but here it is
It all started on February 22nd 1848, after beeing forbiden of celebrating Washington's birthday, a coalition of Liberals, republicans and socialists took the streets of Paris, deposing the infamous Louis Philippe. A new provisional government was made, creating a parliament and ellections were to be held, after an attemped murder of a republican leader and a conservative counterrevolution in Nantes, the revolutionaries decided to stick together to defeat their old enemies. The newly formed triumvirate is elected, with one republican, one socialist and one liberal in each seat. Jacques de Lapartir, the republican, was the De Facto leader of the triumvirate and the 2nd French Republic was proclaimed. It didn't take long for the conservatives to start a counterrevolution. On April 7th, monarchists and conservatives under Napoleon III and Louis Philippe took the city of Avignon and started advancing towards Marseille and Tolouse, pillaging Provence. It didn't also take long for the new republic to send an army to crash the monarchists, the two armies met at the plains of Vallence on May 2nd, there, Napoleon III was defeated. The leaders of the revolution were hanged and the conservative riots stopped. --- While the first insurrection in Palermo was defeated by Neapolitan troops, a second one came on late February with more success. Inspired by the French, they declared a new republic. On Turin, Carlo Alberto di Savoia accepted the reforms demanded by the people and prepared for a liberation of Italian lands under the control of the Austrian Hapsburgs. On March 18th, revolutionaries declared Milan an independent republic and where followed by Venice, which declared the Republic of San Marco 4 days later. The kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia invaded Parma and Modena the, who were under Hapsburg domain and declared war on Austria on the 19th of the same month to help the newly formed italian states. The Italian war effort received hep from France and secretly by Prussia. The Sardinian army defeated the austrian army several times with assistance from the French and Italian volunteers. Another rebellion broke up in Trieste on August, trapping the austrian army nearby and blockading the arrival of reinforcements Naples experienced its own revolution, with the king fleeing on March 24th and the second Pantenopean Republic beeing declared the next day. The Pantenopeans joined the war against Austria. On September, the Austrians launched an offensive but were defeated and forced to retreat. The Tuscan king decided to implement reforms (Like in Piamonte) and formed an alliance with the other Italian states. On late November, Pius IX was forced to flee the country and on December 3rd, the Roman Republic was declared. The Italian nations decided to form a confederation, including Lucca, Parma and Modena. The confederation was declared on May 14th 1849. --- Prior to the revolutions in Italy, on March 13th Metternich is forced to resign. However the new government didn't like nationalists, and 5 day later, sent an army to put the Italians in their place, the army however was stopped by the Croatian revolution on March 21st in Zagreb, the croatians were defeated easily and the revolution crushed. On June 12th, another revolt started, this time in Bohemia and Moravia. The kingdom of the Czechs was declared independent 10 days later. On August 16th, the germans revolted against the czechs on Silesia and the Sudettenland. These counterrevolutions received some help from the South German states, who maanged to get control of the german speaking parts, but were defeated while triyng to reconquer the Bohemian lands. On October, a peace treaty was signed, granting the Czechs independence as long as Austria was able to keep the Sudettes and Silesia. A week before the peace with the Czechs was signed, the Hungarians declared its independence in the Twin Cities of Buda and Pest, the kingdom of Hungary declared war on Austria. The Magyars also had to dealt with their own revolutions. Crushing the Slovaks at the battle of Bratislava and the Serbs at the Battle of Apatik. The Romanians managed to occupy half of Transylvania, but were crushed by a combined Magyar-Turk army. On February 19th, Austria made peace with both the Italians and Hungarians after knowing they had received help from some of their neighbours. The Poles revolted the same day on Krakow and Lwow. The Prussians sent help to the Austrians as they didn't want the Poles to revolt on Silesia and Posen. The duchy of Krakow lasted for a week until the arrival of the Germans, when they surrendered. --- The Ottoman empire had to deal with an outbreak of revolutions on the same week. The Serbs revolted first (and also took Slavonia) on late May, and were followed by the Bosniaks the next day on Sarajevo. The Albanians revolted 5 days after the Serbs, declaring and independent republic on Durrës. On June 1st, the Sultan Abdulmejid I was forced to abdicate by a revolutionary force know as the "Turkish Brothers" In Bucarest, the Romanians forced Hospodar Bibescu to abdicate on June 13th. Th Turkish army managed to crash all the revolutions except for the Serbian one. --- In Berlin, Frederick Wilhem IV accepted to apply liberla reforms in order to gain popular support and started his ploans to unify Germany under the Hohenzollern rule. First helping the Holstein revolts against Denmark and then triyng to force the remaining states into joining a german union. His plans were boycotted by a coalition consisting on Saxony, Bavaria, Baden, Wurtemberg, Hannover, Hesse and France. Frederick resigned in favour of his brother Wilhem. In Spain, a Carlist attemp to take power was defeated on Paris and the Basque and Catalan revolts were crushed on December. The Helsiki revolution on April prooved sucess,altough it was not a revolution for independence, but a revolution for autonomy.

MinnesotaNationalist: well, that was the most underwhelming jury duty ever. Came in one day, was told to go home, and now I'm told that I'm not needed anymore for this session.

ieph: I've been actually thinking of just spending my time here, gradually decreasing my presence in AH.com. But in the meantime, I'm spending my time reviving one of my old WIPs sadly lost to the sands of time (I guess)

ieph: In fact, I'm even thinking of reviving my wikibox TL right here.
