Here is Austro-Japanese aristocrat Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi's 1920s proposal for five global super-states:

The global super-states on the legend of this map are, translated to English and in their proper order:

 

-Greater Europe

-Greater America

-The British Empire (or, alternatively, the British Realm)

-The Russian Empire (or, alternatively, the Russian Realm)

-East Asia

 

Coudenhove-Kalergi was, of course, also a huge fan of the idea of a United States of Europe, an idea that Adolf Hitler criticized at the time but which later to a large extent became a reality in the post-World War II years and decades.

What sort of commentary are you expecting? This is just an Imperialist wet-dream in which the "civilized" peoples of the world subjugate everyone else.

Yeah, it does seem rather screwed up by present-day standards but the idea of supranational unions and how they evolved over time is certainly interesting. There could be separate supranational unions for Latin America, non-British Africa, British Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and even Central Asia, of course.

Did he ever decide who should control Turkey, Ethiopia, Iran and Afghanistan?

Apparently not; this is why they have a question mark next to them on this map of his.

Also, you forgot to mention Thailand here, which also has a question mark next to itself.

The borders are a bit different, though:
