華族制度が今なお存在する(成立時期も約300年前と古い)世界。歴史上江戸時代および鎖国が存在せず、西洋文明の普及が早いなどもうひとつの世界との差異は過去へ遡るほど大きいとされる

This is an entry about a fictional parallel world of the novel 'ぼくのご主人様 ' i understand this as ; from a historical perspective the edo period nor the sankaku period existed and the differences of ( the original world ) with the other world is made big as if you went back in time . deepl however translate this is as : 'differences between the (parallel word ) and the of the world ( the normal one ) are said to be greater the further back in history one goes, such as the absence of the Edo period and national seclusion, and the rapid spread of Western civilization' .

So, does 遡るほど大きいとされる mean the further you go back.... ? https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%81%BC%E3%81%8F%E3%81%AE%E3%81%94%E4%B8%BB%E4%BA%BA%E6%A7%98!%3F

  • What's your problem? Your understanding and DeepL's translation seems to be the same to me. The older the age is, the bigger the difference between the two worlds is. In other words, the two worlds are similar in modern age except for the existence of the 華族 system.

    No, とされる is a separate construction. And see also Can 「XければXほどY」 clause pattern be shortened to 「XほどY」?

歴史上江戸時代および鎖国が存在せず、西洋文明の普及が早いなどもうひとつの世界との差異は過去へ(遡れば)遡るほど大きいとされる。

As can be seen from the absence of the Edo period and national seclusion, and the earlier spread of Western civilization, it is considered that the further back in time one goes, the greater the difference from the other world becomes.
