Africa - Raped for natural resources by China and left for dead (as always), as the last major resource load on earth its depletion is a major impetus for space colonization.
South America - A loose nit leftist coalition forms between major powers and is militantly isolationist, might be a minor power.
Middle East - Oil exhaustion leaves most of the region destitute but a few localities use their vast accumulated wealth to buy protection from their hostile neighbors while acting as the worlds money lenders.
India - The worlds foremost second tier power and major thorn in the side of China (rather then Russia), constantly seeks to align itself with US and EU. One of the most democratic counties at this point, minor space power.
South East Asia - Mostly serves as a population pressure release valve for China, constant small scale conflicts which continue to entangle Australia and put it at odds with china.
Australia - Effectively an extension of EU at this point but also on good terms with US, minor space power.
Japan - Isolationist, carefully balances between US/China alignment serves as a broker between the two, minor space power.
