    He's chair of the Educational Committee from...age 9? Are you sure you didn't mean to shift those dates twenty years later or something?

    When he was nine, he closed all the schools. Didn't you hear his rap?

    Please excuse the mistake on the Presidential election... Bernie only won 14 states. This is just a big WIP.

    Let me know if you want to see the 2011 and 2007 general elections. The "Liberal-Progressive Party" is really just a coalition of the Liberal Party and Progressive Party. Elizabeth Warren, leader of the Progressives, is Deputy Prime Minister (spoiler alert)

    I figured I'd put it here first as I didn't know if it crossed the line or not and wait for a response

    Would be interested to see that. How many seats do the liberal and progressive party each have? Is the coalition strong or is it beginning to fray?

    So I had this premise that I've screwed around with before that I decided to come back to recently, and that premise is British Patagonia. So, here's an election infobox I made for British Patagonia this morning that I feel like sharing.

    Background:
    The past 2 years for Patagonia have been defined by the governance of a tenuous 4-party coalition in the unicameral House of Commons that had to make continuous compromises to stay in power. The three main parties of the coalition were the left-wing populist Red Star Alliance, or RSA for short, the centre-left Labour Party, the left-wing nationalist Social Credit Party, or Socreds for short, and the centrist Social Democratic Party, or SDP for short. Due to the leftists in the RSA and Socreds regularly disagreeing with the centrist SDP on issues of the economy and social programs, Prime Minister Julia Collier didn't get much done during her term in office. The opposition, consisting of a motley crew of the right-wing populist party known as Patagonia First, the centre-right National Liberal Party, the confessional Christian Democratic Party, former National Liberal PM Marc Lapierre's Civic Nationalist Party, and the ruralist Centre Party, could not form an opposing government with the SDP as it would consist of six parties, and the rest of the parties in the House refused to work with Patagonia First or its leader and founder, Llewellyn Dominic.

    The political situation seemed hopeless, with the possibility of four years of a continuously stagnant administration from the RSA, the same party that had produced the most decisive and divisive Prime Minister of recent times, Alexander Stewart, who had served from 2010 to 2014, and had also founded the RSA itself. And it was not the fault of Prime Minister Collier, as she was very similar in policy and personality to Stewart. The problem was the tenuous coalition, which was barely holding the country back from a snap election. In addition, the Labour, National Liberal, Social Democratic, Christian Democratic, and Centre Parties went through internal shakeups during this time, replacing their leaders, most of whom had served as leader through several elections. One of the resigning leaders, Labour's Philip French, had served as Prime Minister from 2016 to 2017, and had previously expressed interest in running for Prime Minister again.

    Then, in March of 2019, Collier announced she would step down as Prime Minister following a snap election to be held approximately two months from then, following the SDP's departure from the governing coalition. She wanted the election to serve as a referendum on the RSA's leadership, and to potentially lead to more stable government. This was quite optimistic, to say the least, as at the time, Patagonia First was leading the polls, followed very closely by Labour, with the RSA trailing in third. The RSA's new Prime Minister candidate was undecided at this time, so they held a party convention to determine who would get the spot. The at first leading contenders for the RSA leadership were veteran politician and 1980s Labour Party leader Bob Roberts, Collier's Finance Minister James Edward Price, and Stewart's former Justice Minister Susan Moss-Driscoll. None of the three were considered particularly appealing choices. Then, unexpectedly, Stewart himself entered the race for leader.

    Stewart, who is generally accepted to have come to power as part of the Latin American "pink tide" despite Patagonia technically not being part of Latin America, is extremely divisive within Patagonia, with most of the populace being very opinionated when it comes to his leadership. RSA supporters almost universally have a positive opinion of him, as he was the founder of the party. As such, he was elected to be the RSA's new Prime Minister candidate in a landslide. His chances were viewed as slim, as the RSA was only polling in third, and while he led the RSA to a landslide victory in 2010, he also led them to defeat in 2014 at the hands of the National Liberals following only one term. His supporters dismissed his 2014 defeat when discussing his 2019 chances, as it is rare in modern history for a Patagonian Prime Minister to be elected twice consecutively. But, the polls would quickly change in the RSA's favor.

    Stewart would breathe new life into his stagnating party, and quickly jolt them up to third in the polls. In addition, the new Labour leader, Dave Byrd, would prove to not be the most likeable candidate, quickly squandering his party's poll numbers and hemorrhaging votes to the RSA, falling down to third place. But Labour would quickly take second place once again, as Patagonia First was caught outright lying in one of its ads, saying that immigration from Argentina was at an "all-time high" when it had in fact only continued to fall since the inauguration of President Macri in Argentina. The National Liberals, who had imploded since the end of the National Liberal premiership of Marc Lapierre in 2016 in what media has called "pasokification of the right", continued to poll relatively low. The Socreds, who have not held the premiership since the 1970s, were polling above their result in the last election. The SDP polled around the same as the last election, as did the Centre Party. The Christian Democrats were polling lower, and Lapierre's Civic Nationalist Party was polling even lower.

    When the election came, the RSA won in a relative landslide by Patagonian standards, but not by as much as they did in 2010. Labour came in second, gaining seats, followed by Patagonia First who lost seats. The National Liberals performed better than expected, gaining two seats. The Socreds gained one seat, while the SDP and the Centre Party lost one each. The Christian Democrats lost a fair share of seats, and Lapierre's Civic Nationalists lost almost half their seats. The RSA ended up forming a coalition with the Labour Party and the Socreds, taking a majority in the House.

    The French State is the name given to the Nation of France from when the 1932 Constitution was Signed to when the Nation was occupied by the German Empire.

    The Great War resulted in France getting collectively steamrolled by the Central Powers. By 1916 The war was lost for France and they declared their surrender. The resulting peace treaty for Western Europe was known as the Treaty Of Brussels which sought to severely diminish France's power on the World stage. As well as Germany Retaining Alcase-Lorraine France lost land to Belgium in the North and Italy in the south. Frances economy had been restricted and made to pay reparations which allowed Germany to become the dominant economic power in Europe. French Colonial possessions were also given to Germany and Britan which left France with Algeria, Morroco, Upper Volta, a Smaller Senegal and Areas around the Sahara.

    After the War France reformed into the Fourth Republic with a Semi-Presidential Parliamentary system. The resulting governments of the Fourth Republic were often violently unpopular and didn't last long. This resulted in the benefit of two political groups. The Communists gained under the SFIO inspired by the recent communist revolution in Russia. And the Various Far-Right Movements, Namely French Action a Monarchist party and The Fasces, Inspired by the Italian Fascists. In the 1928 Legislative election, the Communists and Far Right made up 1 third of the assembly.

    The Great Depression hit the world hard but It hit France the Hardest in Europe. Due to their economic disadvantages imposed a decade earlier. As Unemployment soared the Government once again broke down and legislative elections were held in 1929. The resulting election resulted in a staggering defeat for the Democratic Republican Alliance which lost almost 200 seats in the 585 seat assembly. While the Communists and Nationalist Third Way parties surged to a near majority in the assembly. The election resulted in a minority government for the Radical Party. After the Election, the Nationalist, Fascist and Third Way coalition party leaders met in Versailles to discuss a party merger which resulted in a Party named The Popular Front which advocated Against both Communism and Capitalism and whose leaders believed in a "Purer" French state. Parliamentary leader Marcel Buchard was a well known political figure who was an Antisemite and advocated for a Roman Catholic French state.

    In the 1930 presidential election, President Raymond Poincare Faced off against Popular Front candidate, Pierre Tatinger. The First round saw Tatinger gain almost a majority of the Vote against the president. Come the Second round Tatinger won 61% of the vote. Tatinger was seen as the more "polished" side of The Popular Front. Although in public he was polite and well-spoken most of his party was not. Notably, Parliamentary leader Marcel Buchard who gave impassioned speeches about "The Return Of France" and "Enforcing" French culture. At his request, President Tatinger called new parliamentary elections set for July 1931. The Resulting election gave The Popular Front a Large Majority in the National Assembly. Immediately after the elections, Buchard started planning to restructure French laws to in his words "Secure the French Nation from future obstacles." This meant outlawing most political parties and centralising the government. By 1932 unemployment had reached almost 35% which managed to fuel the Popular Fronts momentum further. At the end of 1931, Buchard announced that he had drafted a New Constitution. The Authoritarian Laws on free speech was the first immediate impact from the reforms which allowed the government to censor newspapers which challenged the new constitution. The constitution was planned to be signed on New Years 1932 but due to a questionable attack on Luxembourg Palace and a national emergency declared the Signing was delayed by a month.

    Parliamentary US: Youngest House members
    (Something a little different)

    The snap election of 2026 set a new record of congressional minutiae: the election would see the election of its four youngest members in the history of the House. The youngest, Phillip Morse, was in fact below the constitutionally-mandated age requirement to serve in the House, just two weeks shy of his 20th birthday when he was elected in June of 2026.

    • Phillip Morse (MA-9): Morse is a full-time political science student at Brown University. Leading up to the primary election for the district, Alfred Holloway, attempted to bring Morse to court, claiming that Morse, at the time living on-campus at Brown University (which is based in Rhode Island) did not fulfill the residency requirements. The lawsuit would be thrown out after Morse provided documentation that his primary address was in Holyoke, Massachusetts (specifically, his income taxes from 2025 and his voter registration card). While allowed to be sworn in on June 24, and granted floor privileges, by outgoing-Speaker Scalise, Morse could not vote in the investiture of Gavin Newsom as Chancellor on June 24.
    • Lawrence Barkman (GA-10): Barkman is a business and political science double major at Georgia State University, and active within the University community, serving in the University's student government as a student body senator. Barkman later claimed after the election that he ran on a whim, with the desire to represent the LGBT+ community in Congress. Barkman's Libertarian opponent in the general election, Gwendolyn Cline, faced backlash after a Republican-aligned political group ran an ad against Barkman that was seen as homophobic. The second-youngest ever Representative, Barkman is also believed to be one of the tallest ever Representatives, measuring in at 6'4".
    • Kathleen Tabor (AL-3): Tabor is a graduate of the Northeast Alabama Community College, where she began studying with plans to attend a four-year institution to become a registered nurse. She was heavily involved with the Alabama State Democratic Party and local- and state-level activism, and was elected in 2025 the Vice Chair for Finance of the Montgomery County Democratic Committee. Tabor's opponent in the general election, Sandra Jordan (L), claimed that Tabor's youth spelled inexperience, which would hurt the district, as several outlying towns were in the process of recovering from a series of massive tornado that struck two months prior. Pundits claimed that Tabor's composure aided her, as Jordan was seen as overpowering the debate.
    • Michelle Robson (OK-2): Robson is a student of the University of Oklahoma, having studied international relations, also heavily involved in her university's student government. Prior to her election, Robson also interned at a Libertarian-aligned political pressure group in Oklahoma, focused on reducing government regulation. Robson was the President of the University of Oklahoma's Young Republicans chapter from 2024 to 2026. Robson ran for the district after the incumbent, Eugene Ledbetter (R), announced that he wouldn't run in the snap election.
    • Constantine Perrone (PA-13): Perrone is a student at the University of Pittsburgh, studying business and economics, and a labor activist. Perrone is a founding member of the left-wing, anti-corruption Delta Party's Pittsburgh chapter, and ran as the party's nominee for the 13th district in the 2026 election; the party was not anticipating the need to recruit candidates until the 2028 election. While originally polling low, Perrone was able to get on the debate stage alongside the incumbent, Gloria Williams (a Democratic party whip), and the Republican challenger. Perrone blamed Williams for the recession, citing her votes in favor of a number of bills introduced by the Huntsman government. Polling at an average of 3% prior to the debate, Perrone shot up to 34% within three days of the debate. By election night, Perrone pulled an upset, defeating Williams 54-38 and becoming the Delta Party's first Representative in the House.
    (I've tried to stick with real people in this TL, but it's hard finding young politicians with pics on their wiki articles - these five people are all fictitious; and sorry for the one box that's separate from the rest lol)

    France had a lot of help facing Germany. Italy, Spain, The Ottoman Empire, Austria and to a certain extent, China all helped with fighting Germany. Even then, France was facing a Germany with no full friends in Europe. The German-British alliance which won the Great war completely fractured post-war and the only reason the UK ended up declaring war on France was that Italy landed in Malta which was seen as a direct attack. The Soviets were embroiled in a destructive civil war which prevented them from opposing France. Anyway, as soon as Britan Joined the war France was d-dayed and fully invaded within a year. I purposely have made a scenario which basically is a perfect storm for France which allows it to perform surprisingly well.
