This visualization reminds me of playing Civilization, the game. The histomap shows the growth and decline of different civilizationsâ€”pretty interesting to see which ones were completely wiped off the map. I highly recommend reading Guns, Germs and Steel if you like this.

Guns, Germs and Steel is a classic for sure.
Please define relative power. How did you determine this
It would be interesting to scale this absolutely — Geographical size of empire + Relative Power (or something)
and then watch the regions in the plot expand exponentially
