    William Waldegrave (running on the concept of a Poll Tax) loses the unloseable election in 1993 for the Coalition, and Tom Watson for Labour in 2019.

    I randomly had the thought of "what if the 1972 Canadian election was more like the 1973 Danish election?" and as a result produced this

    Edit: I just realized the popular vote totals are screwed. Oh well

    Another post for my Gran Lago timeline, where a massive lake in Southern California doesn't dry up and sticks around to the modern day (with some help). This time with flags! The thread for this timeline can be found here.

    The National Party of New Granada held a three-stage selection process for its Presidential nominee in the 2011 presidential election. Incumbent President Anthony Miccuci was again selected as the party's nominee through a series of pre-selection events and primary elections, culminating in the 2011 National Party Convention held on April 20.

    The primary contest began in December 2010, when the first of 37 pre-selection events, held in each of the thirty-six States and the federal capital of Port Michael to select their respective nominees, was held in the state of Hancock.

    In these pre-selection events, nominees were elected in different ways that vary from state to state: they could be elected at local conventions, designated by the party's state-level leadership, or chosen directly by party members. In Connaught and Keystone, the respective home states of President Miccuci and Vice-President Phillip Schwarzenberg, the pre-selection stage was used to choose an alternative nominee, as Miccuci and Schwarzenberg were automatically designated as their states' nominees according to the so-called "parachute rule".

    At the end of the three-month pre-selection phase, a draw took place on Feburary 23, 2011 at 13:00 CNGT at the Domgall College in Petersbrook, Quinaqua, to determine the allocation of the states into two primary phases. The draw also determined which primary phase each of the six states pre-qualified for the convention – the incumbents' home states (Connaught and Keystone) as well as the four biggest membership contributors to the Party among the remaining states (Nevosa, New Orenburg, Guernidy and Oliveria) – will vote in.

    While having less than half the potential impact of their 2005 predecessors, the Phase 1 primaries, which took place on March 9, allowed Nancy Park, the leader of the anti-establishment, fiscally conservative "Government Efficiency Fighters", to secure her place in the convention. Significant competition emerged at the Phase 2 primaries on March 30, where Senate Majority Leader Tom Pratt, the number one of the Nationals' reformist wing and Miccuci's personal rival, won first place.

    Finally, on April 20, delegations of state-level party bosses assembled at the National Party Convention to select the Presidential nominee. Miccuci, who accumulated 789 points at the convention, won the nomination, and chose Phillip Schwarzenberg to be his running mate for the June 1 Presidential election.

    Voting System

    At the primary stage, party members were requested to rank 36 nominees – all but their state's own. The primary's results were determined by a complex, points-based method rather than by straight popular vote – in each state separately, after results are processed by a ten-winner hybrid of the STV, Borda and Condorcet methods, nominees are awarded points based off their showing at the polls: the first-placed recieves 12 points, the second-placed receives 10 points, and the other eight getting points from 8 to 1.

    The primary's results were counted twice; once to determine the primary's winners (with prequalified and extra-Phase candidates disregarded) and again to determine half of the conventions' points (with the primary's losers disregarded); The other half of the convention points, counted under the same system, was determined according to the delegations' votes.

    This complicated process was meant to ensure a prospective nominee would have to appeal to all regions and to both the party's establishment and rank-and-file.

    Aye, I'm pretty sure. The rule, AFAIK, is that the most recent election and the upcoming election count as current politics.

    World War I (often abbreviated as WWI or WW1), also known as the First World War or the Great War, was a global war originating in Europe that lasted from 13 March 1915 to 10 October 1919. Contemporaneously described as "the war to end all wars", it led to the mobilisation of more than 67 million military personnel, making it one of the largest wars in history. It is also one of the deadliest conflicts in history, with an estimated ten million combatants and eight million civilian deaths as a direct result of the war.

    The war was triggered by the assassination of Crown Prince Wilhelm, heir to the throne of Germany, during a state visit to Vienna by Serbian nationalists, leading to the invasion of the Kingdom of Serbia by Germany, Austria-Hungary and later the Ottoman Empire. A series of interlocking alliances between the European Great Powers led to the issue becoming a crisis involving most of the continent. In March 1915, the Great Powers were divided into two key blocks of alliances: the Central Powers consisting of Germany, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire and Italy and the Allied Powers made up of Russia, France and Great Britain. Russia responded to the invasion of Serbia by declaring war on Germany and Austria-Hungary, followed by France declaring war in support of Russia. Germany's invasion of Belgium in April 1915 led to Britain joining the war, as per the 1839 Treaty of London.

    The early phase of the war were restricted principally to Western Europe, with Germany advancing through the Low Countries towards France. Over four years of attritional battle followed on the Western Front, that resulted in British, French and German armies fighting over a handful of miles at a time. Italy officially joined the war in July 1915, followed by Bulgaria that autumn which opened up additional forces to support the Invasion of Serbia. Greece joined the war on the side of the Allied Powers in December 1915 which opened up the Southern Front, which took place in Southern Europe and Northern Africa mainly between the Ottoman Empire, Greece and Britain. This portion of the war was comprehensively won by the Ottomans in 1918 following the successful invasion of Greece and British retreat from Crete. The war became truly global in 1917 when the United States, who had initially remained neutral, joined the war on the side of the Central Powers. The American entry in the war tipped the balance in favour of Germany and its allies and led to North American Front of World War I opening up. Japan and China also joined the war that same year on opposing sides.

    The long length of the war led to civilian protests and uprisings in Russia in 1918 and early 1919 as Tsar Nicholas II struggled to maintain political control, especially when German advances on the Eastern Front were successful. The Tsar was overthrown in March 1919, leading to the creation of the Russian Republic and the Treaty of Vilna, ending Russia's involvement in the war. With troops now freed on the East, Germany began the 1919 Western Offensive, now supported by a number of American troops and supplies. The offensive was successful, with a key victory at the Battle of Sainte-Geneviève making Allied defeat inevitable. France surrendered in September 1919 with the German Army less than 20 miles from Paris whilst the British Government, facing defeat in North America and now in continental Europe, signed an armistice on 10 October, effectively ending the war.

    World War I was a significant turning point in the political, cultural, economic, and social climate of the world. It is considered the marking of the end of the Second Industrial Revolution and the Pax Britannica. The war and its immediate aftermath sparked significant political turmoil. The two key victors – Germany and the United States – imposed their terms on the defeated Allies in a series of treaties agreed at the 1920 Luxembourg Congress, with Britain and France conceding defeat officially in the Treaty of Luxembourg. The war resulted in the immediate break-up of the British, French and Russian Empires, with a number of new states created as a result, whilst the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires would also begin their gradual decline after the war, despite their victory. The League of Nations, aimed at preventing a similar war in the future, was also created but its effectiveness was undermined with the United States never officially joining. A second global conflict would follow just under 23 years later.

    WARNING: Contains spoilers for the series finale of Game of Thrones.

    It has been five centuries since Bran the Broken first took the throne. Much has changed since the Raven King's reign. The Iron Islands and Dorne no longer answer to the government in King's Landing, instead joining Winterfell and the Freelands in independence. The original structure where the king was elected by nobles has been fundamentally altered by the Tarlyite reforms of King Eddard the Extraordinary. Wars are no longer waged by knights on horseback but by dragonpowder weapons and artificial dragons raining death from the sky (though fortunately the likes of R'hllor's Eye has not been used in warfare since the destruction of Mereen in 753 to stop the revanchist regime of King Daario III). The Mycahikan colonies of Winterfell and Westeros have been independent for nearly a century. The Kingsroad today is a highway traveled by automobiles, Dorne has earned vast riches from tourism, satellites can pinpoint every point from the Freelands to South Sothos, dragons and White Walkers have become cliche movie monsters and a politician's downfall today is more likely to be a career killer than an actual death.

    The 816 election of a monarch was the first election of the 9th century since Aegon's Conquest. Monarchial elections today are largely carried out by the vote of a democratically elected assembly, though many noble, eminent families retain longtime seats and the likes of the Lannisters, Baratheons, Arryns, Bronnsons and Tarlys retain a major presence and have produced a disproportionate number of kings. Political factions are nominally illegal in terms of monarchial candidacy, but factionalism nevertheless remains in fact if not in name. As in most elections, many individuals put their names in for consideration, but as always the field narrowed by the time the Assembly voted. The top four candidates each represented different factions. Arya Sparrow was a centrist, technocratic, youthful candidate. She had a major following on the eWeb and a charismatic personality. Quentin Sand was a Dornish-descended individual residing in the Vale who was a staunch supporter of a proposed Westeros Economic Union that would encompass the Freelands, Winterfell, Dorne, the Iron Islands and the Five Kingdoms. Sand's internationalism also extended to foreign affairs, as he advocated a military buildup to confront various threats overseas. His hawkish views were largely shared by Henryk Baratheon, one of the holdovers of the more oligarchial government structure. Baratheon favored more conservative policy stances than Sand or Sparrow did, supporting cuts to government spending, lower taxes, more restrictions on immigration (especially from Essos and Sothos) and skepticism of the Westeros Economic Union. Finally, Tylar Potter ran as a candidate of the working class, favoring expansion of government support to the poor as well as traditionalist stances on social issues.

    The first ballot saw Sand take the lead, with Sparrow right behind him and Baratheon and Potter tying for fourth. This was bad news for Potter, as despite achieving the same level of support in the Assembly, as a noble, Baratheon was entitled to advance while Potter was not (a law Potter decried as archaic and sparked major national protests). The second round of voting saw Sand keep his lead while Sparrow also picked up support. Baratheon, facing disappointing results, saw that he could not hold out much longer and ultimately offered to support Sparrow if she would support a referendum on the WEU. Sparrow agreed to these terms and in the third vote of the assembly became the first elected Queen of the Five Kingdoms of Westeros. Her victory was heralded as historic, but only time will tell if her reign will be prosperous or troubled. Many believe that years of human activities bode for a worse winter than normal. The Sevenist Union of Mycahika has shot down an Iron Islander aircraft that got too close to their territory. And in Essos, a man claiming to be the Prince That Was Promised has assembled a collection of R'hllorist militants and directed them to attack the Five Kingdoms' ally of Volantis...
