Backstory: The 7 years war goes differently, in Europe total victory for France and Austria, in India France and her Indian allies dominate and the British are ejected from the continent, and in North America France wins tactical victories but unable to overcome the population and material advantage of the thirteen colonies status quo. Following this France enters a golden age of commerce and her North American colonies grow sizably in population, fearing growing French power the thirteen colonies stick closer to the British crown. Meanwhile Austria, overextended by wars and maintaining its position as #2 great power is rocked by economic crisis and liberal revolution, ultimately the Habsburg monarchy is toppled and revolutionary forces seize power before going on to invade and dominate most of central and eastern Europe. The Ottomans are removed the Balkans and Poland restored as a revolutionary puppet, the British, seeing a chance to regain lost ground provide support to the revolutionaries and launch attacks on the colonial possessions of the coalition, in the chaos the Dutch grip on the East Indies is largely destroyed and a powerful Chinese merchant house, already shadow rulers of Malay seize Java. Ultimately the revolution is put down by a coalition of Russian, French and German troops and the Habsburg absolute monarchy restored to its pre-revolution borders, with the exception of Poland who using the newfound revolutionary principles of the nation at arms manages to hold on to its independence.
Other divergences of note: Without the Napoleonic wars Spanish and Portuguese America is much more stable, though the revolutions are just kicking off as of 1836 for the Spanish.
Christianity has much more of a foothold in Japan, and the Sengoku era never finished, the feuding Japanese states are split between Christian Daimyos in the south and native Shinto ones in the north, loosely grouped into Portuguese and Dutch spheres of influence respectively.
The Russians are much more interested in colonial ventures than OTL.
Without Napoleon's invasion the Knight's Hospitaller are still in control of Malta, as well they maintained their 17th century Caribbean colonies.
