I will take a stab at this.

Browder is the analog of Vladimir Lenin.

Dillinger is the analog of Joseph Stalin.

Lovestone is the analog of Mikhail Gorbachev.​

This has probably been done before, in a better capacity, but eh, I was awake at 2am and this is what happens.
Way back when, Marx considered moving to Texas around the time of Lincoln (this is the fuel for a lot of dog-whistle conspiracy theories, but I digress). As such, Marx's idea of a workers revolution finds its way into the Americas.

Karl Marx, 7th governor of Texas.

Beautiful. That made my day.
 
This is perhaps one of the stranger things I've done. It involves this guy becoming more successful earlier on, as well as falling from grace and moving to Ireland where he gets a fresh start

Edit: fixed a small error. I put him as living in Dublin instead of Belfast in the personal life section of the original, so that's fixed now

Parliamentary US part ¿ of ?: 2076 United States presidential election


The 2076 United States presidential election was the 73rd quadrennial presidential election (and the 24th such election under the Columbia Constitution), held on Tuesday, November 3, 2076. The first round saw a three-way race for the runoff: Democrat Sebastián "Bas" Íñiguez McBride, the former Governor of Virginia, North Carolina Representative Nicole Phelps of Citizens' Alliance and Jonathan Schaller, the Premier of Florida, of Progressive Labor. Kansas Representative Norman Currier of the Republican Party would land a distant fourth place. Íñiguez McBride and Phelps would proceed into the runoff, with Schaller just missing out on the second round by half a percent. The second round would see Íñiguez McBride win by a near-ten point margin against Phelps. Íñiguez McBride became the first governor elected president since 2020, and the first Spanish-American elected president.

While eligible for a third term as President, Republican Harold Waters stated in March 2074 that he would not seek a third term. Then-Vice President Stephanie Lorenz formed an exploratory committee for president in December of 2074 but announced after the snap 2075 election, which saw support for the Republican Party collapse nationwide, that she would not run for president. This would mark the first presidential election since 2000 that neither the incumbent president or vice president was the presidential nominee for any major party. Íñiguez McBride secured the Democratic nomination by February 2076 while Phelps and Currier faced no significant opposition during their respective primaries. Schaller fought a prolonged primary campaign against California Representative Susanna Franklin and Minnesota state Representative Patrick Tejada, which resulted in a brokered convention in August of 2076. Schaller's campaign was notable as the first time a Socialist or Progressive Labor candidate was endorsed by the party for president, signalling a shift in the informal power-sharing agreement between the Democrats and Progressive Labor.

Early campaigning in the primaries focused heavily on the economy, which had begun to show signs of a recession, as well as the political climate in Washington; the 2075 snap election was precipitated by the collapse of the Republican-led Cobb government and the return of Howard Silverman to Blair House, while popular support for Republican President Harold Waters hovered around twenty percent during his final year in office. The snap House election also factored into the primary campaign directly, as both Phelps and Currier, in addition to nearly a dozen other primary candidates between the four major parties, had to face election for their House seats whilst also campaigning for their respective party's nomination.

"Blind King George", as many could call him, was the last person one would expect to take up the mantle of monarch of the Kingdom of America. Sure the role was a ceremonial one with true power being invested in Parliament, but the American people still put great faith in the King and he had to serve as a symbol of unity to the nation.

In the long run though, George II's story, even before he would be crowned King, would be one of overcoming the odds and adversity. Serving as a regent for his aging father, Prince George was determined to let the American people know, despite his disability, he was fit to be their King. The early years of George's reign would see the full independence of Texas and California, two republics that had fought for their independence from Mexico a decade earlier and had subsequently become American protectorates. The purchase of Alaska from the Russia Empire also occurred under George II, and by the end of his rule in 1878, the Kingdom of America comprised of around half the North American continent.

Was inspired to make this after listening to this great 1980's rendition of Justin Bieber's "Baby":


1980sbaby.PNG


"Baby" is a song from Canadian singer-songwriter Justin Bieber, released off of his debut album My World (1985). The song was recorded in 1984 and released on March 8, 1985, weeks before the release of My World. The music video for the song became a massive hit on MTV, and later went on to top the Billboard Hot 100 for 9 non-consecutive weeks in June, July and August 1985, becoming Billboard's No. 1 song of 1985. The song also won Song of the Year honors at the 1986 Grammy Awards. The song is now considered by many to be a defining song of the 1980's and one of the most recognizable songs of all time.
 
Wow, just wow! That's a very interesting and detailed election, @Erinthecute !

Some questions do remain:

  • How far left is the People's Party (I assume it's called Volkspartei)? Is it outright Marxist?
  • How far right is the Fatherland Coalition? I would think it's DNVP-level right-wing, but how extreme are they really?
  • What is the program/platform of the Democratic People's Alliance?
  • Is the "New Progressive Party" in any way ecologist/green/environmentalist?
  • What happened to Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg?
  • What is to the west of this nation? Some communist Rhine/Ruhr People's Republic? An international mandate (this Germany looks much like the proposed "North Germany" from the Morgenthau Plan)? France directly (that would mean Fulda is French)? A mega-Netherlands with an über-Bakker-Schut plan?
Where do you get the names from? They are so realistic, after all!

Or did I miss a whole timeline thread somewhere along the line?
 
Sorry. I should have looked at the party infobox more, @Erinthecute . Still, I could use some more detailed party platforms of this universe:

  • "Republicanism" as a party platform means that this German nation is an Empire/Kingdom? Correct? Which people (demographically, socially) vote for the Republican Party then, especially if its other program is a liberal one?
  • How far-right is the Fatherland Coalition actually? Are they populist in nature?
  • What does "left-wing nationalism" entail, i.e. what would a Germany under Volkspartei look like and be like to live in? I assume that this is further left than Die LINKE?
  • Do you have a "conventional" map of this nation or at least a list of cities? I of course know what cities there are, but am unsure regarding the western border: Is Bremen still in this German Empire? What about Hannover? Kassel? Does the western border follow a river (e.g. the Weser)?

And a totally unrelated question: What about football (soccer) here? Have you thought up anything on the Reichsliga? Or Reichsoberliga? I could imagine a structure:
  • Oberreichsliga/Oberste Reichsliga/Reichsoberliga
  • Reichsliga
  • Zweite Reichsliga
  • Dritte Liga West - Dritte Liga Ost - Ostpreußenliga
  • and then Provinzligen.
 
Bavarian legislative election, 2018.png


The 2018 Bavarian legislative election took place on 4 November 2018 to elect the 180 members of the 19th Landtag of Bavaria.

Prime Minister Andreas Scheuer's center-right Bavarian People's Party (BVP) managed to win a plurality of overall seats despite losing the plurality of directly elected constituencies to the center-left Social Democratic Party of Bavaria (SPB). The right-wing National Party won its highest seat total to become the third-largest party in the Landtag.

While the two parties still won 153 of the 180 seats, they received their lowest combined vote share since the establishment of the republic. The smaller parties protested the electoral system, which included directly elected constituencies with the addition of regional party lists using the D'Hondt method.

SPB Leader Johanna Uekermann was able to form a coalition with the environmentalist
Greens and the centrist Independent Liberal Party (ULP), reaching the bare minimum of 91 seats, to take the government from the BVP, which had previously governed in a minority government with the support of representatives of the regionalist Franconian Party. Uekermann's new government made electoral reform a priority, paving the way for the 2019 electoral referendum.

EDIT: The graphic should say that Katrin Ebner-Steiner is the leader, not Gerold Otten.
