Must learn how to do wikibox for my TL. The Scapa Massacre must have one!
Indeed. That's what I use actually.I recommend Nimbus if you use Firefox.
Wikiboxes aren't incredibly hard to make, either mess with the wikipedia sandbox a bit, or make one on wikia where you can add your own images easily. Also, making ones for custom massacres/genocides is kinda depressing... I mean, I don't think I'll ever finish the one for theMust learn how to do wikibox for my TL. The Scapa Massacre must have one!
Oh uh it's not that kinda massacre. The TL i'm currently writing has an ATL* Dönitz and his U-Boats which are ISOTed back to the German Empire the week after the First Battle of the Marne ends. Günther Prien has just entered Scapa in a XXI and the Dreadnoughts of the Grand Fleet had early that day just returned to Scapa Flow to refuel. You can imagine what happens next.Indeed. That's what I use actually.

I always pictured it as an alternate history where a Democrat won in 2000 and then was succeeded by a two-term Republican in 2004.Interesting, though for some reason I remember them mentioning Walker succeeding a Republican (Although I don't see someone as insipid as Walker defeating an incumbent).
My personal headcanon is that the US House of Cards takes place in the same universe as SLCer's A Bridge to the 21st century. I'll explain how if anyone's interested.
I'm fairly certain that the last OTL President they mention in the series is Clinton.
Awesome.While the flat tops and missile destroyers of the Coast Guard are sexy and get all the press, the Coast Guard's brown water navy are just as important if not more so. Tempest class patrol ships and Mark X patrol boats form the backbone of the Coast Guard's brown water force, and have been widely exported to numerous friendly and allied navies across the Outer System. They participate in interdiction, territorial security, and special operation roles in coastal, littoral and open ocean environments. The Tempest patrol ships pack a punch for their size, capable of engaging aerial targets with its FIM-207 Talon MANPADS and shipping targets with laser-guided RGM-114N Hellfire Dryad missiles--whose range can be extended greatly with laser-targeting pods mounted on the RQ-38F Sea Shade UAVs. Mark X patrol boats can be found more frequently in harbors and in rivers, and its armament is very modular depending on its mission. They are used extensively by the Coast Guard Special Warfare Command (Swift Boats), the NVPA Special Operations Command (Buckskins) and the Minutemen Mobile Riverine Forces (River Rats).
Kinda both, they had nothing to back their currency with; and the fact the country couldn't agree on anything for all seven months of its existence.The currency situation - did they never get around to making a significant number of Western Dollars, or did it just have no effective value?
The Russian title цар has the same etymology as the German kaiser and Swedish kejsare, they both are ultimately derived from caesar, which originally was just a name but already by the late first century had become a title. The English emperor and French empereur both ultimately derive from the Latin imperator, which was originally a Roman military title akin to commander or generalissimo, but which already by the first century had become adopted as a title exclusive for the emperor. Caesar and imperator could be used inter-changedly, and that is why we generally feel no worries translating kaiser into emperor and emperor into kaiser, since both offices ultimately share a common origin, as they were used by Europeans working in the shadow of Ancient Rome. Now of course, it can be debated whether or not we should really call the Emperor of Japan an emperor, seeing his title has no ideological heritage from the Roman Empire, and it's basically just a matter of convention that we translate tennō (天皇) (which really means heavenly sovereign) into emperor. Contrary to what Pablo Sanchez might have thought, there is no universal template for human rulers, and had things been different, and the first European explorers to Japan decided that tennō meant king, then we'd today be talking about the King of Japan, and there would be nothing different about the throne in any sense.Isn't it spelled "Czarina"?
No, princess is tsarevna.Well, the "cz" spelling is actually Polish. It's not strictly correct for Russian transliteration IOTL, but if Poland was more of a power post-1800 ITTL (and if Sweden is trying to keep Russia at bay, why not) it makes some sense. Also, I'm pretty sure a tsarina is a queen whereas a tsaritsa is a princess.
I actually didn't know that. As far as I knew both were acceptable transliterations (wiki says that the letter is supposed to be pronounced like the zz in pizza).Well, the "cz" spelling is actually Polish. It's not strictly correct for Russian transliteration IOTL, but if Poland was more of a power post-1800 ITTL (and if Sweden is trying to keep Russia at bay, why not) it makes some sense.
