How many royal families does America have?
Well with the United States standing at 9,833,000 km², 12 times as big as Holy Roman Empire's mere 814,415 km². If you compared to the Holy Roman Empire, who had approximately 1,800 royal houses, I can assume that there are around 21,600 royal families.

You know, this gives me an idea, I'll probably flesh it out tomorrow. Very original and unexpected take on that election map by the way, but it's strange that the House of Kennedy didn't win in Massachusetts.
Glad it can give you an idea :D

I never like thinking inside the box .... they might not let me back out again :D

This was a big shock in this election, although when they broke down the Princes, the ones that were usually divided by the right wing candidates, sent all their vote for Prince John, rather than Lord-Duke Donald, whom many have had bad blood for ever since his attack on Emperor John, House McCain of Arizona and their own candidate in 2006, Baron Willard Romney. This wouldn't usually throw him into the lead, but with an open field of four left wing candidates, Prince Joseph's votes weren't enough to push him over, although he was so close to winning, many predict he will be running again for the next election.

This election was also interesting for the radical movement that nearly took hold, which wanted to have the monarchy abolished by Republican leader, Bernard Sanders :D
 
In light of the recent news of Ron Dellums passing away, here's a crude infobox I made for my TL a while back.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Dellums.

Just a random infobox inspired by me watching "John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid". John's father Charles "Chip" J. Mulaney, Jr., decides to actively get involved in politics during the Clinton administration, ultimately becomes Governor of Illinois and the GOP candidate for president after sixteen years of Democratic control in the White House (Gore defeated Bush in 2000 due to butterflies). Very simple, very silly.

Decided to start today off a bit easy with the last election in a surprisingly-long election game

I'll explain the parties below

Our Millennium is basically En Marche! mixed with Occupy and yes, that does sound incoherent as fuck, they're basically a broad-tent anti-establishment party that somehow got their policies adopted by an unelected president and won this election with his support. They also are big against political dynasties, which unsurprisingly for an election game, was a big thing in this world

Conservative Alternative is basically the right-wing protest party and they ran an unrepentantly right-wing guy here since they were definitely not expecting to get in the runoff. They did, and well, that guy proved an utter failure and led to his party being hurt downballot

Democratic Choice is the left-wing coalition, made out of the Radical and Green parties, but those days the parties are basically non-existent as everyone more or less sings from the same hymnbook. In 2018, the two decided to give up all pretenses and just merge into one bigger party

Rally for the Republic is the centre-right establishment party, and "technically" the incumbent party, but they more or less rejected President Husain from the start for being the grandson of one of the worst Governors in American history. This led to a big chunk of their party switching to Our Millennium and the party receiving a pretty dismal result this election, although they did recover downballot thanks to CA's collapse

Americans Elect is the hardline "anti-dynasty" party, split off OM once the party voted to accept President Husain's offer of co-operation. Husain was part of a dynasty himself and the people who founded AE thought it was "selling out" to work with him. Apart from that, I think they're basically the same as Our Millennium in terms of policies and this is just a hardline splitter

It's a bad time for America. President Scipio Grocer, the first African-American president who succeeded to the office after the tragic assassination of his predecessor in 1921, has presided over a time of troubles, of rising racial tension and of rising economic stagnation. Somehow re-elected in 1924 due to a fluke of the Electoral College, he has seen his party take hits downballot as people rally to the Conservative Party and to other options...

Think the economy is bad and that only someone experienced with money can lead America out of it? Well, the Conservatives have you sorted with young, charismatic and telegenic businessman Jay Gatling! Some will say he's too inexperienced, being only a Representative, but he will settle down nicely as President, they say! And he has a much more experienced running-mate to help him!

Of course, he's not up against President Grocer, but against possibly the Progressive-Republicans' best candidate this time around, the left-y firebrand from Minnesota Clark Forsyth who promises to solve this recession with old-style Progressive policies that President Grocer shunned, along with new ideas like his promised infrastructure policy that he is sure will bail thousands out of unemployment!

But surely some of you will claim, the PRUSA and Conservatives are in the pocket of the globalist Wall Street conspiracy? Well, luckily for you there's an option in the rockscrabble populist Nationalists, promising to end American internationalism and return to splendid isolation while kicking Wall Street and the globalists out. [Rupert Larson insists he is not speaking of Jews, but it's a very familiar dog-whistle that brings quite a few votes]. Their leader is running for the second time and has hopes that people's despair will catapult him to power.

What if you see the Nats as unpleasant anti-Semites yet want radical reform and not willing to trust Forsyth? The Social Democrats are here and they still champion socialist reforms, handing power over to the working-class and bringing around a "people's society", whatever that means. Samuel Franklin, their 1920 nominee, is back and hoping to build on their 1924 success.

Oh, what extremism! What unpleasant radicalism! Surely there must be an option for the liberal middle-class that isn't Gatling? And there is! Two in fact! The idiosyncratic Michigan centrist Louis Orléans and the New York Governor Al Smith, the latter running on his vanity Democracy Party platform. Orléans has a huge ego, but he is great at convincing thousands that if only America would elect him, all its troubles would be over. This isn't true of Smith, unfortunately for him, but he does have party infrastructure backing him.

But what about Paddy O'Brien and the United All-Americans? Well, if you're Mormon and a member of O'Brien's Supreme Ku Klux Klan, they're certainly your first choice, even if you're not sure about O'Brien himself, what with his weird drug-taking liberal left-wing past.

=====

In the first round, Gatling won a strong plurality riding on middle-class discontent, making huge gains in the north-east while losing traditionally Conservative Plains states to Forsyth and Larson. The runoff would be Forsyth and Gatling, and once Larson denounced both as "globalists", Gatling had the momentum and locked in his victory in the runoff, returning Conservatives to power after 12 years.

Things were looking great for "the Great Gatling", as some nicknamed the new President. And then the economy went to hell.
