>Then, the elves. The High elf race (the Jews/globalists)
There isn't any race explicitly based on the Jews, but the Imperials have the most similarities in terms of physical characteristics and things like clothing. Also, if any of the races in Tamriel can be considered globalist, wouldn't the people who founded an empire, conquered their home continent, and have attempted to conquer the other major inhabited continent (the Imperials again) be the ones that best fit that term?

>[The Thalmor] have then later on successfully blackmailed and infiltrated the Imperial Empire
If by blackmailed and infiltrated you mean "were given influence in the terms of the Empire's surrender at the end of the long and bloody against the Empire", then yes.

>The Thalmor is discreet in business, they gain positions of power in secret, hidden away from the public. The citizens might have an opinion on the Thalmor, but it isn't that defined.

We really only have the opinions of the Thalmor from people in Skyrim, but NOBODY likes the Thalmor. Everyone is aware that they are in charge. It's public knowledge because of how the war ended and the Empire's reasoning for banning worship of Talos (even though they don't really enforce it) is openly because the Thalmor said so. Did OP even play this game?

Tl;dr so many of the things from this thread are wrong, some of them being the opposite of what's happening. This theory doesn't make any sense and OP is trying to take a fantasy story and look for social commentary that clearly isn't there. If I had to guess I would say that he's probably been in an echo chamber for quite a while.

>Even Cyrodiil, the home of the Empire, has some of its most ethnically diverse parts lost to the most prevalent races and the Imperials are unable to enforce their laws and ways in these areas. Some of these places are completely devoid of Imperials altogether and are becoming unrecognizable as Cyrodiil.

I have seen no reference to any of this in the lore. If it's there and somebody can cite it, please let me know.

>There are wars all around Tamriel, and all of these events are causing major instability, along with literal refugees flooding into the lands of white humans.

There were wars around the start of the 4th Era and the big one between the Dominion and Empire recently. Currently the only war we're hearing about is the civil war in Skyrim as the Stormcloaks want to secede. The other wars generated refugees, but this was a while ago and considering how much of the war was in Cyrodiil, I don't think it's likely that non-white refugees flooding white provinces was the biggest portion of the refugee travel. In current times the main refugee problem going on is the Dunmer leaving Morrowind, many of them coming to Skyrim. They're leaving because Vvardenfell, a very large island housing a lot of people has become inhospitable due to its central volcano continuously erupting for nearly 200 years at this point. The High King of Skyrim recently gave over the island of Solstheim to Morrowind to help with this, but the island was a shithole to begin with so it didn't help that much. The only place in Skyrim where the natives seem to be complaining about refugees is Windhelm, although refugees are coming in elsewhere.

>Conquered provinces are returning to their primal, tribalist ways as they gain independence from the Empire, and Imperial ideals and customs are fading from them.
Conquered provinces were always following essentially their own culture and that hasn't changed much. As for provinces gaining independence and losing Imperial ideals and customs, Skyrim is trying to gain independence in part because it wants to continue following the Imperial custom of worship of Talos. The points I just quoted from OP are completely unfounded.

>Poverty, hunger and crime are skyrocketing in Skyrim
I wonder if that has anything to do with the civil war raging in the province?

>The southern border towns are filled with foreign races
No they aren't. Nords are by far the biggest demographic in every city except Markarth, which is not southern border and has Bretons as the largest demographic. Possibly due to proximity to High Rock. Falkreath is more than 50% Nord and Riften is close.

>[foreign races are] increasing thievery to a degree that it starts to get very organized and surprisingly, intertwined with the cities' governments, spawning massive levels of corruption.

No, no, no, the Thieves Guild has been around and present in Skyrim for MILLENNIA and as of the start of Skyrim the guild is at a low point for its activity and influence, really only having any power in one city. The entire quest line revolves around getting the guild back to its glory from long in the past. OP got this completely backwards.

>People, even Nords themselves are resorting to dishonest ways and customs to survive in the Nordic hellhole that is now a shadow of its former self, which was a peaceful, pretty paradise.

Wut? "Skyrim is the northern province of Tamriel, a land of breathtaking beauty and lethal winters. It is one of the ancient seats of power in the Empire and well-populated by the Nords. As if to compensate for their freezing environment, the Nords are famously hot-blooded and the political climate can be as shifting and dangerous as the winds." -Pocket Guide to the Empire, 3rd edition.

>When you speak to the beast races they always joke about stealing and murdering and occasionally outright admit they do it.

In the southern areas there is a culture of running shit-talking between the Khajiits and Argonians. One Argonian admits to breaking into houses and moving things around so the owners think they're stolen, but the rest of the joking about stealing and killing comes from soldiers and members of guilds that do that sort of thing (Fighter's Guild, Dark Brotherhood, etc.) and are far from only the beast races doing it.

>1/4 of the population is actually native Imperials. Less than half are white (Nords, Imperials, Bretons)
Why is this relevant? Cyrodiil directly borders the home provinces of 7 other races and has been the site of dozens of wars over the millennia and has been settled by the other races countless times. Even the Imperials are not the native race in the region. The Ayleid elves were there first and enslaved the pre-Imperials, who came in from Skyrim and like the rest of the humans were not originally from Tamriel, before they were overthrown and wiped out. Even counting the Imperials as the natives (and the only ones now) why include the other "white" races in your census? They have no more connection to or right to ownership of Cyrodiil than the other races and have only been selected here because OP has a biased point that he's trying to make.

>Cyrodiil is the main driver of all advancement on the whole continent
Not exactly. You could sort of argue that it's the center of political advancement in the sense that all the big empires come through it, even those that aren't founded there, but it's a large centrally located province so this isn't surprising as a lot of commerce has to come through there. The same thing is going on in Whiterun in Skyrim: It's centrally located and thus is a trading hub, fueling its prosperity. In terms of technological advancement, TES doesn't really have a lot going on. The Dwemer were the main drivers of that in Morrowind, Skyrim, and Hammerfell, but they disappeared thousands of years ago. Since then mundane science has been essentially stagnant. Magical advancement has happened over the years, but it isn't exactly centered in Cyrodiil. The Imperial City has the Mage's Guild's Arcane University, or it did before Mage's Guild was dissolved, but there were also esteemed researches of magic in the Telvanni house in Morrowind, the College of Winterhold in Skyrim, and in the lands of the more magically inclined races (Bretons and Altmer). The Ayleids were very magically advanced like the Dwemer were scientifically, but they aren't around anymore.

>[Skyrim] is also very multi-cultural, according to the same researchers it is only about 70% white.

Again, why bunch the "white" races together in these demographics? why not have a breakdown of each individual race or go by human/elf/beast instead? There aren't any reasons to unless you have a biased point you're trying to shoehorn into the lore.

>The decaying Empire and it's officials are in denial about its demise, and those who realize what is happening lie about it and keep a lid on all of their losses around the continent.

The Empire is in serious decline, but most of that has come about in the last 40 years (as of Skyrim) due to a huge and bloody war with the Aldmeri Dominion that the Empire lost. Right after Oblivion there was no sitting emperor and it took some time to get Cyrodiil under control, but once that happened it took the rise of the Dominion to stir up disaster. Since the war Hammerfell has seceded and Skyrim is attempting to, both of which are making it seem unlikely that the Empire will survive for too much longer into the future.
