European economic organisation in Poland-Bohemia timeline, something more akin to EEA/EEFTA than EU (as in being more of customs union as in name than supranational goverment), it has Council with Rotational Presidency of heads of states of member countries (currently the Holy Roman Emperor) and Secretariat doing day-to-day work.
Im also thinking about making a separate thread for this timeline (perhaps allowing some collaborative work as i dont have enough knowdlege in all areas and POD is pretty far bac) although I don't know how much people would be interested it.


Hopefully this doesn't belong in current politics; it's from a larger alt-universe of mine, but the differences might be too subtle.

So I'm reviving this challenge. This time, make an election wikibox using this for the map.

The 2016 Election was a landslide for the National Commonwealth Party, a merger of the Republican and Democratic Parties in the 1930s during the Great Depression, it's a classically liberal and socially conservative party. Their main opponents, the Progressive-Workers Party and the People's Party, don't have much in common.

The PWP is a left-wing big tent party that ranges from Marxists to Kahlo-Riveraists to Stalinists to social democratic that was formed as a merger of the "Bull Moose" Progressive Party, the Socialist-Labor Party, Socialist Party, Communist Party USA, and the Farmer-Labor Party. It usually wins big in the farmer heavy areas (Great Plains), coal mining areas (Appalachia), the technological developing areas (Oregon, Washington, and Arizona), or the more socially liberal areas (Idaho, Montana) of the US.

The People's Party was founded by Brigham Young in 1870s Utah. Since then, follows of Mormonism have spread across the United States of American, with great amounts of converts among the Germans in the Great Lakes region and African-Americans in Arkansas. They hold socially conservative views, establishment of a Theodemocratic Deseret Autonomous State, and a planned economic model.

The 2016 election was mainly about the current Civil War between the Arabian Kingdom, led by Abdullah II, and the Ba'ath Republic of Arabia, led by Saddam Hussein; Neo-imperialism of Central and South America by the United States, and the funding of the Lunar Colonial Project and the state of the Lunar City of Aldrin.
2018 Mississippi State Legislature Elections

In 2018, Mississippi held its elections for both houses of its state legislature. Mississippi is the only majority black state in Dixie making up 52% of the population, and it is also the most Unionist state in Dixie. Unsurprisingly in this heavily Unionist state, the Unionists kept their large majorities in both chambers. The Unionists have drawn the districts for both houses in their favor and to weaken the Nationals as much as possible, ensuring super-majorities for their party in the state legislature.

Despite having a vice-grip on state politics, there are still divisions within the Unionist Party largely along racial lines. There have been several very bitter fights within the Unionist primaries for statewide office between the more left-leaning black members and the more moderate white members of the dominant party. In the state legislature, this division still exists dividing the members of the legislature. Though for the past couple decades there has been an unofficial truce between the two where the state House of Delegates would elected a black Speaker and the state Senate would elect a white President pro tem. One area where the two factions are in lockstep are in their dislike of the Nationals, so the two routinely draw district lines in their favor in the state legislature (where they aren't as heavily monitored by the Redistricting Act of 1983). Even with a 10 point swing towards the Nationals, the Unionists would still hold 2/3's super majorities in both chambers.





Different dynasties some where native Egyptians, others were foreign dynasties mostly Greek, Nubian, or Persians. Notably in this world where the Hellenistic age lasted far longer it meant that Rome's influence has been greatly reduced. :)

That sounds kind of awesome, actually.
So I'm reviving this challenge. This time, make an election wikibox using this for the map.
The 2016 presidential election was the 58th quadrennial election, and was held on November 8th, 2016.
The incumbent vice president, Jennifer Granholm, sought election on the National Recovery Administration ticket. The NRA had been established for the 2008 election as a vehicle for the presidential run of economist Alan Krueger. Krueger ran on a Keynesian, technocratic platform of economic recovery, and selected Granholm for her record of economic reconstruction in Michigan. Krueger overthrew the political establishment and absorbed many members of the existing parties. His administration successfully reinvigorated the national economy, and in 2016, Granholm ran on the administration's record, choosing Senator Tom Carper, an economics major, as her running mate.
However, some were opposed to Krueger's economic and social policies. The Constitution Party, a longtime Christian conservative third party, considered Krueger's economic reforms "socialistic," and nominated Glenn Beck, a right-wing activist and media critic of the president. His running mate, Ken Cuccinelli, was a critic of Krueger's social policies on same-sex marriage and immigration, and targeted Catholic and evangelical groups.
The oldest party running in the election was the People's Party, which continued to act as a representative of rural and agricultural interests. They were facing a continuing decline, and nominated Tim Walz, a moderate who sought to reach a broader audience and stem the loss of voters.
The election was largely seen as a foregone conclusion. The Constitution Party was a small, extreme organization and Beck was a controversial figure. The Populists, meanwhile, were facing the continued decline of America's rural population. However, what Granholm and the NRA had not figured was the level of dissatisfaction among many Americans who felt that the economy had not recovered for them. These left behind voters largely rallied to Beck as he railed against the administration favoring minorities and poor people rather than working people and the middle class. Beck was also accused of sexism for his personal criticism of Granholm. In the debates, Beck at first seemed to have the upper hand, but Granholm's knowledge of the issues left him out of his depth, and he faltered.
By Election Day, Beck was unable to overcome Granholm's lead, and he lost by a substantial margin. The NRA won in states across the country, mainly in more liberal states, more unionized states, and areas that had experienced a stronger economic recovery. Beck, meanwhile, won in the main strongholds of the Constitution Party, the South and the West, although his surprise victories in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, were attributed to his appeal to social conservatives, and although he lost his home state, he won in neighboring Oregon, which had a larger white population and a strong far-right community. The Populists, meanwhile, continued their decline, obtaining their worst result since 1892, maintaining only their solid states of Utah and Colorado, and winning in parts of the rural South and the Midwest. Jennifer Granholm was inaugurated on January 20th, 12017, as the first female president of the United States, along with the first president to be eligible under the 32nd Amendment, which abolished the natural born citizenship requirement.

The 2016 Presidential Election is seen as the turning point in modern integralism as the Integralist Party won its first election ever (despite being 90 years old). The Moderate-Conservative Party was formed in 2012 as the Democratic Party was split as the conservatives moved to the Integralist Party and the moderates moved to this newly formed party. Finally, the good old Green-Democratic Party formed by the war-hero Norman Borlaug who also became the first President of the party. Not only that but the growing Integralists taking the southern democrats.

The main issues were: Global Heating, The Norwegian-British War, and argument on the separation between church and state. The positions on these issues of the parties go as such:
Integralist Party on Global Heating
"God's green earth shall be protected"
-Jerry Falwell Jr.
Moderate-Conservative Party on Global Heating
"We have more important issues"
-Larry Hogan
Green-Democratic Party on Global Heating
-Jill Stein

Integralist Party on the Norwegian-British War
"If the church had more control then it would not have happened. We should stop all trade with the dirty Brits!"
-Jerry Falwall Jr.
Moderate-Conservative Party on the Norwegian-British War
"We should stay neutral on the issue"
-Larry Hogan
Green-Democratic Party on the Norwegian-British War
"Even though Norwegians just want to protect their land, I believe we should waste money on for anything that is not on the environment."
-Jill Stein

Integralist Party on the argument on the separation between church and state
"Get rid of the barrier!"
-Jerry Falwall Jr.
Moderate-Conservative Party on the argument on the separation between church and state
"Obviously keep the separation. Just not too much of a separation."
-Larry Hogan
Green-Democratic Party on the argument on the separation between church and state
-Jill Stein

Despite being second place in the popular vote, the GDP lost in an electoral landslide. Many people say today if the moderate-conservatives had not been created, the Integralists are in power. Now the church is controlling us. Modernly there are no other parties after the coup.

The 2017 United States presidential election was held on September 12, 2017 to elect the President of the United States for a term lasting for four years or until the next election. Incumbent President Duncan Scott was first elected in 2016, having been selected to stand for the military regime in the first nominally free election in 13 years. Scott faced off against activist and attorney Elizabeth Burnham, who was in prison for conspiracy against the United States, and Congressman Ham Fitzgerald of the Expressman's Brotherhood, who had led the Expressman's Revolution of 2016 and the 17 May coup, precipitating the early election.

The United States had been under a military government since the 2003 coup otherwise known as the Copper Revolution. General Alexander Mulholland eventually became president and elections were suspended for three years until 2006, when sham elections were held to place military officials and loyalists of the Mulholland administration in Congress as well as state and local governments. Mulholland was officially "elected" in the 2008 presidential election, where he stood unopposed. A spate of assassinations by insurgents leading up to the planned 2012 election led to that election being suspended as well. In 2015, President Kenneth Kenworthy announced that "free" elections would be held in 2016, and that he would not seek election to a full term of his own. However, these elections were highly suspect, due to restricted ballot access, voter suppression, and suspension of political parties, these being a few of the many tools the regime used to maintain power.

The 2016 elections would have been successful in upholding the existing order, as organized opposition had been rendered almost impossible and dissidents were systematically oppressed. However, there had been a slight oversight. In the 2005 proscription of the trade unions, the Expressman's Brotherhood was not included as the vast majority of its membership had shifted to the National Expressmen Union, which was dissolved as members went on to join the American Postal Workers Union or other postal unions. The Brotherhood went defunct shortly after proscription anyway due to the broader suppression of labor. Though it was defunct, it still legally existed and had ballot access in several states. Dissident and labor activist Ham Fitzgerald led candidates across the nation to run for office under the Expressman's label, and won wherever they could. The Kenworthy adminstration refrained from overly restricting the Expressman's Revolution due to international pressure and Kenworthy's desire to be viewed as a reformer. Although General Duncan Scott easily won the presidential election, the Expressmen won Congressional races.

With their 136 seats in Congress, the Expressmen were able to block President Scott's attempts to eliminate them and also slowed down the business of government. On May 17, 2017, they began a coup attempt. Firstly, they had blocked the budget entirely, mandating a government shutdown. Secondly, they had also blocked all presidential appointments, meaning that there was no Cabinet. While President Scott was on an international trip, Vice President Robert Howard was assassinated by insurgents who began fighting in the capital and ejected military loyalists from Congress, leaving only Expressmen, who then declared an absolute majority in the House of Representatives and unilaterally impeached President Scott. This coup was the opening salvo in what was likely to become a full fledged civil war. However, the insurgents failed to hold the capital, and President Scott returned to the United States on May 21. Under siege in Washington and likely to lose, Ham Fitzgerald agreed to meet with Scott.

The Mount Vernon Agreement ordered a cessation of hostilities and an open presidential election. The Expressmen would be allowed to leave Washington with their lives and would not be held liable for their crimes, the underlying threat being that if they lost the election, they would all surely be arrested and executed. Military leaders were puzzled at Duncan's decision, but he stressed the importance of having Fitzgerald urge insurgents across the nation not to rise up. Scott, like Kenworthy before him, was a reformer, and preferred the slow and orderly reintroduction of (limited) democracy over open rebellion. He was sure the election would not be a risk, and that everyone could be handled afterwards.

Fitzgerald declared his candidacy and was seen as the leader of a unified opposition, with a good chance to win if the election was indeed free and fair. International observers came to the United States to monitor the election. However, not all insurgents adhered to Fitzgerald's calls for temporary peace and continued to fight, particularly in the usual hotspots of the midwest and southeast. Scott regularly threatened to suspend the election wherever the fighting did not stop. During the campaign, Fitzgerald was unable to visit most states, as he already had outstanding arrest warrants for being a radical and an insurgent. Additionally, numerous states outlawed the Brotherhood to remove him from the ballot.

In July, the race became more complicated when Elizabeth Burnham entered the race. Burnham, a pro-democracy activist, was the wife of the exiled Ezra Lieberman, son of Levi Lieberman, the last freely elected president. Burnham had been convicted of conspiracy against the United States in 2013, a move widely decried internationally as sign of the excessive authoritarianism of the "Revolving Door" era of military presidents. Though Burnham remained in prison, activists organized her campaign on her behalf and secured ballot access in several states. Burnham was still a popular symbol of opposition in the United States, and her candidacy threatened Fitzgerald. The Scott administration allowed the campaign because it was expected that the division in the opposition would allow Scott to win "fairly."

However, by September, there was a growing fear that either Burnham or Fitzgerald would be able to win the election. Additionally, if Scott won, the insurgency would probably start again. The whole thing had not been very well thought out. On September 11, Ezra Lieberman announced that he had returned to the United States for the first time since he was 21, in anticipation of his wife's election to the presidency. Additionally, he called for a return to armed resistance if Scott or even Fitzgerald claimed to win the election. This was the final straw. A few hours later, Scott ordered the suspension of the election. His order was disobeyed in 20 of the 51 states.

The following day, the election took place wherever it was allowed, in conjunction with nationwide rebellion. As the results came in, Burnham won a plurality of both the popular vote and the electoral votes of most states where there were elections. Scott held the rest of the states and declared himself the winner by virtue of controlling the Electoral College. But the pretense of democracy had already been abandoned, and war had begun. Although Scott claimed a constitutional victory, it was too late. Scott himself would be assassinated the following year, while the military government went on for two more years.
