Economic situation by continent
North America contains Canada, the USA, and Mexico, all of which are major world players. North America is quite well-off economics-wise, as none of its nations are extremely corrupt nor extremely poor.
Years of dictatorships and corruption have greatly hindered South America's potential growth for a while. However, it has seen stunted economic growth in the past years. Brazil is now a world power, and both Argentina and Venezuela are regional powers.
Europe is also doing very well economically as well. Like North America, poverty is rather low as well as corruption. Europe has numerous high-ranking countries in categories such as GDP, HDI, and standard of living. Overall, things have been going well for Europe.
One word to describe what Asia's doing economically is excelling. The continent contains numerous powerful economic leaders including Russia, Japan, China, Mongolia, Korea, India, and more. The lack of communism in specific is what has lead to the great economic growth; in OTL there have been numerous corrupt communist dictatorships within the continent (ex. North Korea, Mao's China, and Stalin's USSR). The Middle East, though, is more or less sub-par economics-wise. Even without communism, numerous corrupt leaders have risen, hindering their economic growth; and the insurgency of terrorism isn't helping either.
Economics-wise, history has not been kind to the African continent at all. Dictatorships, poverty, and the climate have all contributed to Africa's lack of growth as a continent overall. The only country on the entire continent to be in the top 20 GDP-wise is Ethiopia, Africa's most powerful economy in this timeline.
Oceania has very few countries, and these countries are all economic leaders. Australia and New Zealand are both powerful countries economically, and Hawaii has both a high HDI and standard of living. However, the isolation of the countries in Oceania's countries poses as a bit of a problem.
