Outline of the Post-War New World Map. Published 1942, Philadelphia, PA
The map was self-published by Gomberg and offered for sale for $1 in magazines such as American Teacher in 1942 and Survey Graphic in 1944 (seen here).

The Outline of the Post-War New World Map was a map created and self-published by one Maurice Gomberg of Philadelphia PA, in February 25, 1942 after the attack on Pearl Harbor and the entry of the US into World War II.[1] It shows a proposed political division of the world after World War II in the event of an Allied victory in which the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union would rule. The map includes a manifesto describing a "New World Moral Order", along with quotes from Roosevelt's Four Freedoms speech.

Gomberg created the map as a personal project, and little else is known of him. The map has been highlighted by New World Order conspiracy theorists who believe it represents some broader view of the US government, and has also been widely circulated online.[2][3][4]

Text from the map

Here is the complete text of the proposed world order, as printed on the map:

Outline of Post-War New World Map as the U.S.A., with the cooperation of the Democracies of Latin America, the British Commonwealth of Nations, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, assumes world leadership for the establishment of a New World Moral Order for permanent, freedom, justice, security, and world reconstruction

Our Policy Will Be This:

1. We, the U.S.A., in cooperation with our allies, for reasons of our national safety and in the interests of international morality, are determined to crush and completely destroy the military power of the Axis aggressors, and their satellites regardless of cost, effort and time necessary to accomplish this task.

2. The old world order of colonial oppression, exploitation of dominions, rival imperialism and mercenary balance of power diplomacy; of majesties, dictators, privileged minorities, plutocratic monopolists and similar social parasites; the corrupted order responsible for the present world cataclysm, endangering our national safety and peaceful process, shall never rise again.

3. A New World Moral Order for permanent peace and freedom shall be established at the successful conclusion of the present war.

4. For reasons of history, economic structure, favorable geography and the welfare of mankind, the U.S.A. must, altruistically, assume the leadership of the newly established, democratic world order.

5. To reduce the burden and criminal waste of armaments expenditures everywhere in the world, the U.S.A., with the cooperation of Latin-America, the British Commonwealth of Nations, and the U.S.S.R. shall undertake to guarantee peace to the nations which will be permanently disarmed and demilitarized after the conclusion of the present war.

6. In order to be able, in the fulfillment of our obligations, to effectively prevent the possibility of a recurrence of another world cataclysm, the invincibility of the U.S.A. as a military, naval and air power, shall be the major prerequisite.

7. For realistic considerations of strategy and our invulnerability, it is imperative that the U.S.A. shall obtain relinquishment of controls of their possessions from all foreign Powers in the entire Western Hemisphere, it’s surrounding waters and strategic island outposts as outlined on accompanying map.

8. For considerations of hemispheric defense and in the spirit and tradition of the new Monroe Doctrine of hemispheric solidarity and the “Good Neighbor” policy, the U.S.A. with the consent of the Latin-American Republics, shall obtain control and protectorate rights of the relinquished territories.

9. To strengthen our position in the Caribbean area which is of obvious importance to hemispheric defense, all possible inducements shall be offered to our neighbors of Central America and the West Indies to facilitate their entrance as equal states of the U.S.A. as outlined on map.

14. The U.S.S.R., the third military Power of importance cooperating with the U.S.A. as a Power for freedom and the maintenance of world peace, shall acquire control of the liberated, disorganized adjacent areas and those of Germany-Austria to be re-educated and eventually incorporated as equal republics of the U.S.S.R., as approximately outlined on map.

15. A world League of Nationalities with arbitration and supervision powers shall be organized.

16. A World Court with punitive powers of absolute boycott, quarantine, blockade and occupation by international police, against lawbreakers of international morality shall be organized.

17.

26. The area of the Holy Land of the ancient Hebrews, at present known as Palestine and Trans-Jordan, and the adjacent requisite regions as outlined on map, for considerations of history and the imperative necessity to alleviate a post war refugee problem, shall be unified as a demilitarized republic of “Hebrewland.”

36. To cleanse the populations of the defeated Axis aggressors of the intoxication of military chauvinism; to effectuate the removal and destruction of their potential military establishments; to recover the accumulated loot and to re-educate them for their eventual membership in the Family of Nations, the areas of Germany-Austria, Italy and Japan shall be hermetically and indefinitely quarantined and administered by appointed Governors subject to supervision by the world League of Nationalities.

37. All resources, industrial and labor capacity of quarantined areas shall be employed for the post war restoration and reconstruction needs.

38. To reduce the numerical power of the aggressor nations, as a potential military advantage, a Population Control Policy shall be elaborated and applied in the quarantined area.

39. In the New World Moral Order which we seek to establish, besides the essential political freedoms, the following fundamental economic changes are imperative:

(a) Nationalization of all natural resources and equitable distribution of same to all nations…everywhere in the world;

(b) Nationalization of international banking, foreign investments, railroads and power plants….everywhere in the world;

41. The “Supreme Military and Economic Council” shall appoint the Governors to administer the quarantined areas until their eventual parole.

For this purposeful beginning we must fight until absolute victory.”

Description of proposed territories on map

The map proposes a total of 14 independent sovereign states, 13 of them democracies and 10 of them demilitarized.

The United States has 80 states, not including Security Outposts in the Pacific and the Atlantic, gaining all of Canada, Mexico and Central America, among other places:

Protections

Port "Peace-security bases": Dakar and Freetown on the Atlantic coast of Africa

Everything below the Darién Gap, and offshore islands including the Falkland Islands.

The British Commonwealth of Nations is headquartered in the United Kingdom, including England, Wales, and Scotland, but not Northern Ireland. The Commonwealth includes the former colonies of Madagascar (in 1942 a French colony), Celyon, the Andaman Islands, Cyprus, most of Indonesia (in 1942 a Dutch colony occupied by Japan; other parts are given to the US) as well as the then British colonies that are now the islands of Malaysia and Singapore, South Georgia, the Bismark Archipelago, the Soloman Islands, and the countries of Australia and New Zealand. A number of ports such as Aden and Zanzibar are also designated "Peace-secutity bases".

Later,

  •  Greece - Federal republic of Greece

The Federal Republic of Greece consists of Modern day Greece plus Albania and Macedonia.

The Soviet Union would expand to be far larger than its then current size.

Soviet Socialist Republics

  • Union of African Republics - the whole of Africa, except for ports designated as British or US bases, also the Sinai Peninsula.
  • Turkey, which loses most of its European territory to the Greek and Soviet states.

The map indicates later changes as well:
