What are the main differences between the Second, Third, and Fourth Republics of Germany?
Also, who are the 12,4 % "Ausländer" in Germany? Are they discriminated against? Why is any other religion (other than Christian and Irreligious) "undeclared"? What about Muslims and Jews, especially?
The second and fourth republics were parliamentary, while the third was either presidential or semi-presidential
The "Ausländer" are just a generic term for foreigners I put because I couldn't be bothered to make a real ethnic breakdown. They likely are mostly from Phoenicia (which has an ongoing civil war ITTL), Africa, and other EA nations (EDIT: likely some from Kurdistan too)
More edits: The "others / undeclared" section is a mix of both other religions AND undeclared people, I didn't mean that all others were undeclared
: I like this collection of maps and infoboxes!
If I read it right on the Führerreich wikia, Valkism is not (normally) racist and certainly not genocidal. Is that correct?
Thus, my question: Did Adam Dressler's nation commit any genocide? Why was Germany dismantled and Dressler hanged if he was not genocidally racist or antisemitic like OTL Hitler?
How long did World War II take, and were atomic bombs used?
Also, what is left of Valkism? What is a Valkist state like to live in - certainly not as brutal and abhorrent as Nazi Germany?
A note from a German: "Valkistische Deutsche Volkspartei" (VDVP) - as specified in the Führerreich
Wikia - is not really a good party name in German. If Valkism is sometimes called "People's Socialism", I would call the party "Volkssozialistische Partei Deutschlands" (VSPD) or "Deutsche Volkssozialistische Partei" (DVSP).
Dressler ITTL didn't commit genocide in the style Hitler did, but he did expel minorities who refused to assimilate into "superior" Germanic culture with threat of force, and he also invaded several neighboring countries
WW2 (known as the Second Great War ITTL) lasted slightly longer than OTL, from 1938 to 1946. Atom bombs were likely used just like OTL, but I haven't worked out the details yet
Valkism is viewed negatively ITTL and there aren't really many Valkists leftover. It's not viewed quite as badly as Nazism is OTL because it was nominally less brutal, but it's still a fringe ideology by the modern day
And yeah, the party name is a bit awkward but I wanna stay loyal to the existing canon on this
Also, could you post about the last election(s) in Germany, @Goweegie2
? Possibly, you can acquire some assistance from - e.g. - @Erinthecute
if you don't believe yourself up to the task.
I will likely make that soon enough. I could definitely do it myself as I've done elections before, but I'd also be down to collaborate with @Erinthecute
if she's open to it because her election infoboxes are way better than mine
And I just now saw that the European Alliance is vastly extended in comparison from OTL EU, @Goweegie2
. That's cool! How are Turkey, Israel/the Jewish Commonwealth, the Kalmyk Republic, Armenia, Azerbaijan etc. doing in the EA? How thight is the European Alliance - about as tight as OTL EU? Or much looser?
Mahfouz is also a cool US president! Did you make him up? What about Rick Baptiste? Could you provide us with a (simple or extended, do it as you like!) list of US Presidents, British PMs and German Presidents and/or Chancellors (whoever is more powerful)?
And could you tell us something about the Rhineland? How communist is it? Does any communist nation still exist ITTL?
The EA is similar in most respects to the OTL EU, but I haven't worked out the details yet. The Caucasus nations are in the EA because they never became SSRs ITTL, Kalmykia joined to distance itself from Russia following the Soviet collapse, Turkey joined because they never went down the Erdogan path, and I haven't fully decided why the Jewish Commonwealth joined, probably because they felt more culturally European than Asian due to most of the Jewish population there being Ashkenazim and Sephardim. They all share in both the benefits and drawbacks of EA membership, which are similar to the benefits and drawbacks of OTL EU membership, but are mostly better off overall than their OTL counterparts
A friend of mine actually made up Mahfouz as a suggestion for this TL while I was showing it to him, although I came up with most of the details. He doesn't have an account on this site, but he's helped me a lot with this TL and if he ever creates an account I'll tag him in the original post of this thread. I made up Rick Baptiste myself though. I don't have lists of British PMs or German Chancellors yet, but I do have a list of US Presidents beginning with Theodore Roosevelt. I'll put it in a separate post because this post is long enough without a full list of US Presidents since TR attached
As for the Rhineland, they weren't communist, in fact they were very aligned with France and the general west ever since the end of the First Great War (OTL WW1), although knowing the political demographics of the OTL Rhineland the Sozialdemokratische Partei des Rheinlandes
(feel free to correct my grammar) is likely the dominant party there
There are likely a few communist countries left ITTL, but no major superpowers even claim to be communist, with the US and China being liberal democracies and Russia descending into national populism
If you have any more questions feel free to ask
