This is a revamp of the post I put out like a day ago on here. I didn't like how it had turned out, so I decided to change some things around. I also made a list of all twenty-five Presidential Triumvirates in the history of the United Empire of Columbia, with some extra blurbs of information on the side to flesh out the world. Hope you all enjoy it!
The age limit is the same as the voting age, both being eighteen.Very interesting! Going off Hillary Rodham ascending to the Triumvirate at 26, I imagine there is no age limit? Or at least a low one.
For some reason, in the election box "Whig" is hyperlinked even without the [[ ]] and the rest don't, I don't know why.
Before I post the long Pessimist's Edition of A Wilde Time, here's a quickie. Basically, I hate how Alan Turing's story ended, having been chemically castrated, stripped of his clearances, and kept a secret for decades after his death, just because he was gay, so here's an infobox with 4/5 divergences, depending on how you see it. The first divergence is that Christopher Morcom (Alan Turing's real life first love) doesn't die in 1930 of bovine tuberculosis. Secondly, either homosexuality is legalised before what would have been his gross indecency charge, or he is never charged for gross indecency in the 50s. Thirdly, Alan Turing doesn't die in the 50s (whether that was suicide or not is up for debate). Fourthly, Morcom and Turing live into their hundreds, possibly seeing the legalisation of homosexuality in 67 (or if it was before they would have anyway) enter a civil partnership in 2004 at the age of 92 and 93, and become the oldest couple to marry in 2014, at the ages of 102 and 103. Turing and Morcom both die in 2016 at the ages of 104 and 105.

I always put the [[ ]] around party names and it never fucks up for meIn election infoboxes, if you don't want the party hyperlinked and the color filled in, you have to put "no" after the "|party_link=" and "|party_color=" parameters, otherwise it will hyperlink to a RL party that shares the name of whatever you put in the "|party=" field.
