    Does anyone here have a blank map of Kreise of the German pre-1914 Kaiserreich, that can be used as an election basemap? @Valdore Javorsky , do you have such a map?

    Thanks for this map, @Valdore Javorsky !

    EDIT: Could you maybe add Luxembourg and Eupen-Malmedy? Is this an MBAM map or is it another format?

    It's a custom map based on an adolf stieler atlas, but it's formally named the yvropa-scale (as it was an attempt on a 1900s Europe Map by Yanranay and me, Valdore)


    Eupen-Malmedy already is part of this map, and here's Luxemburg (plus the german/luxembourgish-speaking arel area):
    luxemburg_und_arelerland.png
    The subdivisions might be modern day tho, so you maybe should check how much the subdivisions of luxemburg have changed (i doubt that it changed tho, additionally this is an althist map so depending on the PoD/PoD distance and the old subdivisions you might just handwave it)

    Political Positions of State Governments

    The state of Saratoga is one of the bigger states of the Midwest, with nearly two million more people than the next largest states of Mississippi and Metropotamia and distinguishes itself by being one of the two strongholds of Social Credit next to Chersonesus.

    Always a more socially conservative state, having the largest state branch of the KKK by sheer numbers in the first half of the 20th century ever since the advent of the Conservative Revolution it had been a battleground between mainly Democrats who ally themselves with Labor and the Republicans who allied themselves with Constitution. However with the growth of globalization and the free trade policies of the 1980s and 1990s bringing an end to the typical manufacturing jobs of America the rebirth of the Social Credit party would be explode in this state.

    Containing many once great industrial such as Dayton, Columbus, and Toledo, these regions became ripe for a party which advocated for a radically economic leftist and socially conservative policy like that offered by Social Credit. Also unlike the similarly industrial states of Assinisipia, Metropotamia, and Western Connecticut the state of Saratoga is not based around a single large city, but rather many medium to small cities whose spread out media markets are much more effectively reached by radio rather than mass media television. The Saratogan Social Credit has also been able to capture the votes of many agricultural workers by promising to break up the large multinational agrocorporations to redistribute to the common farm worker.

    All of these factors combined allowed Social Credit to become the most dominant party in the entire state, first entering government in 2010 with a coalition between them and the Republicans. This alliance would continue until the election of 2016, which saw the Democrats gain enough votes to be switched out as a partner for Social Credit, allowing the party to pursue more of its radically left wing economic policies such as the breakup of landlord agricultural companies to be redistributed to the people. This policy proved to be so extremely successful that in the 2018 election the Social Credit party received an absolute majority for the first time, making Saratoga the second state to have a solely Social Credit government next to Chersonesus.

    Thus, the Saratogan Social Credit party now plans to implement its plan for a "National Dividend" in the country's 13th largest state, a plan which has been promising so far in Chersonesus and will now see its biggest implementation yet.

    Government:
    Social Credit - An economically left wing and socially right wing party, their support for the white working class has allowed them to dominate the state of Saratoga ever since the decline of American heavy industry in the 1980s and 1990s. Now being unchained from the moderating and economically centrist influences of the Democrats the state plans to implements massive corporate and sin taxes to ensure a "National Dividend" which involves taxing the largest companies as well as socially "undesirable products" such as alcohol and video games to give free cash to the people of Saratoga.

    Opposition:
    Labor - The largest opposition party in Social Credit, they also stand for economically left wing ideals, but with a center-left social policy. Labor is also much more concerned with the rights of minorities and immigrants which Social Credit often holds disdain for. As such, Labor continues to be a significant force in those cities with large minority populations.
    Democrats - An economically centrist and socially right wing party, they served as the coalition partners for Social Credit from 2016 to 2018. While both parties like the idea of giving welfare to the white working class the Democrats hold an unique hatred of labor unions, fearing that such institutions serve only as stepping stone towards communism. Nevertheless they were able to put that idea to the side to support the Social Credit in the quest to raise new wealth and corporate taxes, cutting deep into the pockets of billionaires and corporations to support the common (white) man.
    Republicans - Economically right wing and socially center right it was only their intense hatred of the Democrats and Labor that allowed the GOP to work with Social Credit for six years. Always having been dominated by the Buckley faction of the Republican party, on social issues the two parties are not very far off, however on economic issues the two would frequently clash, delaying much needed stimulus and unemployment insurance which made Saratogan suffer greatly during the early 10s. Now greatly reduced from their former strength, the party continues to hold support among economically right wing suburbanites who fear higher taxes on their small businesses.
    Constitution - Right wing both economically and socially, they are deeply opposed to the regulations and taxes which Social Credit has implemented, believing prosperity gospel to be the only truth.
    Old Order Party - The party for the Amish, with Saratoga being the state with the third largest population of Amish, next to Washington and Pennsylvania, they constantly get around three representatives who continue to protest the arrest of Amishmen for simply caring out their god given duty in stoning homosexuals.
    Black Panther Party - A socialist black nationalist party, they have continued to grow in popular among younger African-Americans who can see that Labor is not doing enough to help their communities.

    They're more or less directly translated from Maori. Knowing Wikipedia they'd prefer to use an English direct translation than a good one (Справедливая Россия directly translates to "A Just Russia" which is what Wikipedia uses rather than a more accurate name like A Fair Russia) This would likely be the case here even though the names are a bit of a mess with this alternate Aoteroa having 3 official languages. Also, I don't take offence because I didn't come up with the names Spens1 did lol.

    For example, there is currently a ticket running in Israel who's name literally translates to 'Rightwards," even though Yamina has quite a bit more context in Hebrew.

    Former Confederate Republic of Virginia (FCROV)
    An alternate 1920s. The Democrats end up nominating a Southerner in 1928 due to shenanigans at the Convention. The Northerners walk out at some point and hope to create a ticket that the South will endorse so put up John Davis (not nominated in 1924 ITTL) alongside Peter Gerry. The South sticks with the convention ticket and RI ends up voting for Davis, who is noncommittal and does not campaign. Peter Gerry proves an attack dog and his influence is enough to win a narrow victory there.


    Former Secretary of State Frank B. Kellogg of Minnesota / Senator David Reed of Pennsylvania (Republican) - 471 EVs
    Senator William J. Harris of Georgia / Representative Arthur Greenwood of Indiana (Democratic) - 55 EVs

    Former Ambassador to the United Kingdom John W. Davis of West Virginia / Senator Peter Gerry of Rhode Island (Northern Democratic) - 5 EVs

    Perhaps unsurprisingly given the deep divides in Superior's society, the 2016 elections to the House of Senators was highly dramatic, although even by the republic's standards it would be a stand-out election.

    Since 2010, the Senate had been controlled by Scott Walker's Conservative Party of Superior (also known as the CPS, or commonly, as with the similar British and Canadian parties, the Tories), and as President of the Senate Walker had been a stridently right-wing figure, pushing back against the liberalizing reforms of former President Russ Feingold and clashing repeatedly with Prime Minister Jim Doyle and then with his successor Tammy Baldwin. The divided control of Superior, the Tories controlling the House of Senators while the Progressive Party of Superior (aka the PPS or just the Progressives) controlled the House of Commons, made it a major centre of international reporting on controversy and vitriol. Of course, this was not exactly new for Superior; ever since the days of colourful PM Robert la Folette in the 1920s, the Progressives and Tories had clashed fiercely over the country's direction, but their policies were particularly miles apart come 2016.

    Superior's House of Senators has been described, usually by its critics, as a 'sort-of proportional' chamber. Each of Superior's eight regions- Keweenaw, Northern Highland, Eastern Ridges, Central Plain, Upland, Lowland, Capitol Region and Greater Milwaukee- is used as a constituency, with the goal with the most recent reapportionment being about one Senator per 100,000 people, and STV is used to elect members to each seat. However, thanks to the majoritarian system of the House of Senators and the sharp dividing line between the parties, minor parties usually struggle. The exception to this rule is the Keweenaw Nationalist Party (KNP), which pushes for greater autonomy in the Keweenaw region due to the perception of its regional identity being undervalued by Madison. Other minor parties that traditionally have some success are the Socialists, a left-wing alternative to the Progressives who frequently struggle to make much headway except in bad years for that party, and the Green Party of Superior.

    In the run-up to the 2016 election, Walker seemed fairly safe, as his deregulation of the economy had coincided with if not caused a solid bouncing-back from the Great Recession damaging the state's economy, and the Progressive leader in the Senate, Tony Evers, was seen as a fairly uninspiring challenger. However, Walker made a major mistake by making a lesbophobic joke about Prime Minister Baldwin that even Tories saw as crude and out-of-line. Seizing the opportunity to pump some life into his party's rather sterile campaign, Evers revealed a comprehensive plan in cooperation with the PM to protect the rights of LGBTQ individuals in Superior regardless of gender or sexuality, and sought the endorsement of the Socialists and Greens, who declared they would also support such a plan if it was proposed in the Senate.

    While Walker fought back by pointing to the spending plans of the Progressives and claiming they would 'wreck the recovery we've seen these past six years', and did improve his standing in the polls, the Tories were expected to at least have their majority dented, especially given his approval rating had taken a nosedive since the controversy. On top of this, a week before the election Evers appeared with KNP leader Bart Stupak, Green leader Michael White and Socialist leader Randy Bryce in an election broadcast urging voters to support any of their parties, declaring 'the priority on September 21st (the date of the election) is to get President Walker out'.

    In a sense, this plan worked. The Tories fell from 37 seats to 30, one short of an overall majority, and aside from Keweenaw, where the KNP won fewer votes and the Progressives lost their only seat, every region swung against them compared to 2010. Combined, the Progressives, Socialists, Greens, KNP and independent Senator Mike McCabe comprised 30 members themselves, and decreed they would vote against anything President Walker wished to pass that they saw as damaging to Superior's interests. Tories, predictably, were livid, given that the other parties had won slightly less of the vote than theirs overall, and a gridlock ensued. On the 14th October, however, the gridlock ended when a Tory Senator, Bryan Steil, voted against Walker's government in a confidence motion, causing the President to lose control of the House of Senators and allowing Evers to take over by winning a confidence vote by the same margin Walker had lost it by (though Steil refused to confirm whether he voted for or against Evers' nomination as PM).

    Ironically, despite the controversial nature of its inception, the Evers government has so far proven fairly popular, especially since the Tories nominated the ardently conservative Leah Vukmir as their new Senate leader and threatened to kick Steil out of the party. Evers' policy has been far more moderate than most Progressive Presidents, rolling back some of the more controversial Walker policies like his heavy tax cuts for the rich and passing the pledged LGBTQ protections bill, but otherwise avoiding controversy and fights with Prime Minister Baldwin. After six years of fighting, however, many Superiorites are satisfied (or at least willing to put up) with this.

    My first attempt at making a wikipedia-style election map. Still don't know how to make SVG maps with GIMP. This took a combined total of like 15 hours to make (mostly from drawing the new constituencies.)

    In order, Socialist Party (moderate social democrats), Liberal Party (conservative liberals, has a small welsh nationalist wing), Popular League (eurosceptic populists and hardcore unionists), Republicans (socialists + welsh nationalists), Green Vision (green welsh nationalists) and Reform (radical centrists).

    1955 Adamville General Election

    Adamville was established in April 1955 by 150 communist settlers who wanted a democratic society which enacted communism. Finding no suitable plots of land to build their communist utopia on, they set out to find an island that had not yet been discovered. After a while of searching the oceans for such an island, the 101 surviving settlers, lead by Vladimir Adams, found an island that had somehow evaded satellite detection. They explored the island for a while. The island was full of fertile soil, so the settlers could settle anywhere. In the end, they chose a hill, which they called the Jalavoix hill. This hill was adjacent to a river, which was named the Tsolomes river. In order to determine where the settlement limits were, Adams was given a stick and asked to draw a line that both went along the river and encompassed the hill. While he was at it, Adams also drew three regions of the settlement. The smallest region, in the southeast, was named after the Tsolomes river, which it went along. The biggest region, in the north, was named after its general direction in relation to the rest of the settlement. The remaining region was named after the Jalavoix hill, which it took the lion's share home.

    Everyone staked their claims, mostly concentrating on the Jalavoix hill and along the Tsolomes river. With their claims staked, everyone built shelters out of whatever building materials they could find. Some shelters were holes in the ground. Others were wood huts. Construction was built in an impressive three months. Now that the settlement was built, it was time to declare the settlement official. The Utopia of Adamville was established, named after Vladimir Adams. It would take another three months for a charter to be written, but once it was, it was time to declare elections in this new democratic communist utopia. Adams himself was expected to compete, however, to the surprise of everyone, he didn't. This was because he intended to oversee the elections to make sure they were fair, and it would not be fair for an overseer to compete in an election they were competing in, or even voting in. The election for the Council was held via first past the post in single-member constituencies, the Mayor was chosen by the Councillors, and there were two factions competing.

    They were loose to prevent anyone from feeling excluded, but in general, the Communist faction was more supportive of a strong central government while the Democratic faction was more supportive of power being in the hands of the individual settlers. Membership in a faction was not necessary to run, but none of the voters who joined a faction had any interest in running, just seeking to vote. It also so happened that only one candidate per faction per constituency ran. This is because most would-be candidates wanted to see how the system functioned before throwing their hats into the ring. Given that the purpose of the settlement was to have a democratic communist society, the Communists had a clear advantage. However, the desire for democracy led to some supporters of the Communist faction voting for candidates who affiliated with the Democratic faction. In the end, the Communists won 3-1 in the popular vote (75-25), and won four of the five Council seats. They secured the North constituency after a coin was flippped due to a tie between the Communist Pietra Cumberwroth and the Democrat Drake Steele.

    Phew, that was more backstory than I intended or even wanted to give. I just wanted this inherently ASB scenario to make sense, and I can go on and on in justification.
