Visualizing the decline of empires and regimes

This is one of my favorite graphic visualizations of how seemingly established regimes can suddently break apart and form into new social systems and patterns.

It uses geographical empires as an example, though that is a largely 17th century concept.

Instead of Britain, Spain, and Portugal, put in Apple v. Microsoft v. Linux or fractional reserve banking v. PayPal v. barter or something more topical.
