We've had this argument. So I'll just copy and paste:

"I'm not sure you could make an argument that this is an imperialist power grab. The Emirate has no control over the currency now, and will not have control over the currency later. It does, of course, helps us "penetrate" into your economies, for reasons noted in the resolution, and this is indeed what we want. But we, the Horsemen, do not believe in isolationism or hermeticism, and take it as an offense to our people that you would be prejudiced against doing business with Horsemen regardless of your opinion of their government."

We also have done nothing imperialist before, so this accusation is completely out of the blue.

Meanwhile, Tevessaget has formed an alliance for the sole purpose of demonizing Horsefolk and has begun making ridiculously radical demands of Horsefolk about its own domestic policies. Talk about imperialism... Someone's trying to set up a pretext on which to invade, occupy and control foreign lands, and it is not the Emirate of Horsefolk.

Shitty draft map of iSharia (and planet):

2iird4q.png
(Equirectangular projection)

(zoomed on region)

Dark grey areas are within iSharia but not taken up by an NS nation (yet!).  The region is very roughly the size of Europe and Africa combined.

Final version will be zoomed on the region, prettied up, properly labeled, maybe changed in projection, and have dubious/variable borders properly indicated.  But before that you all get a chance to argue about how I've represented your countries.

+ (United Workers Councils of Proletariat Comrades) has got a tropical archipelago rather than a temperate one as requested

14 (The Most Serene Republic of The Bloody Lamb) has been placed outside iSharia proper to comply with its stated geography.

Dogdoug has not yet been placed, but will be on the final map.

Also there's the Theocracy of Cevlaconia in exile now. Do they have territory somewhere?

Also also: Bigtopia and Maxtopia can be added somewhere if there is space!

The leaders of Cevlaconia are taking refuge at an undisclosed location.

Ah, power vacuum. No wonder why ISIS and CCC popped up! (Although the question begs asking why Cevlaconia in Exile hasn't made an appearance)

I was bored while downloading stuff, so have a quick'n'dirty version that better illustrates land area:

This is a Mollweide projection, with Africa and Eurasia overlaid.  As the projection is equal area you get a much better idea of the relative land area of each nation.

Looking at this I could probably afford to make some of the really big nations bigger to fill out space (though they're a pretty good size already, just not on the scale of the real world's top five) and I fucked up the size of Numenor baaaaaaaad.

It's about the size of Mallorca there, or Ibiza? How large is it supposed to be according to the Silmarillion?

According to various internet maps, Numenor is about 500 miles across.  If I've math'd this right, here is a corrected map:
