Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes V (Do Not Post Current Politics Here)

If this counts as current politics just let me know and I'll move it to the current politics thread. I avoided incumbent OTL leaders but I'm still unsure if any of the people I used are too currently relevant for this thread

From Desire the Right:

The European Common Council is a collective body comprised of the heads of state or government of the member-states of the European Common Federation, as well as the President of the European Common Council and the President of the ECF. It is largely responsible for the ECF's overall direction and priorities.

SNip....
Curious to know what template did you use for the table? I'm currently seeking ideas on constructing an alternate history of somewhere else, although I am unsure which...

Edit: I should look into your thread and check it out :p Also well done! I'm impressed with the way you've set out.

2019 Hawaiian General Election

Beginning in 1902, the Kingdom of Hawaii existed as a protectorate of the Japanese Empire until the kingdom was released by in the Japanese Empire in 1975. Since becoming fully independent the Kingdom of Hawaii has become the most successful of all of Japan's former colonies, it being one of the richest countries per capita in the region. Hawaii is a part of the West Pacific Union like all of the former Japanese colonies and has benefited the most of the arrangement. Hawaii has one of the most successful tourism sectors in the world and is a top choice for Japanese and American vacationers. Hawaii currently has a population of 1,120,528 with 42.7% being Asian, 17.1% being White, 15.8% being Native Hawaiian, 22.3% being 2 or more races, and 2.1% being another race.

In 2019, the incumbent government comprised of the center-left, Alliance for Hawaii and the centrist Reform Party lost their majority in the Hawaiian House of Representatives. The Alliance and their leader Prime Minister Mazie Hirono remained the largest party in the House of Representatives for the 4th consecutive time since the party and Hirono won the 2010 Elections. However the Alliance and the Reform Party led by Ed Case lost enough seats to be unable to form a government between the two. Reform, a party disproportionately popular with the white citizens of the islands, would lose both of their electorate seats with Case himself losing his seat of Northeast Shore. Reform is now completely reliant on list seats and only barely cleared the entrance threshold of 5% to get any seats.

The center-right Democratic Party led by Duke Aiona would gain 5 seats, but the disappointing showing would cause Aiona to announce he would be stepping down as leader of the party shortly after the election. United!, a left-wing party that strongly targets native Hawaiians, and their leader Kaniela Ing would gain 5 seats as well, their best ever showing since their creation in 1998. The Hawaiian Independence Party, a populist party that combines conservative social positions with center-left economic positions, led by Mike Gabbard would also gain seats in the House of Representatives. Both United and the Independence Party support turning Hawaii into a federation of all the populated islands rather than the current unitary system. United and the Independence Party also are both dissatisfied with the West Pacific Union, but only the Independence Party calls for Hawaii to completely leave while United only supports a limited increase to Hawaii's autonomy. All the other parties more or less support Hawaii's current position in the Union.

After the election, Alliance, not being able to reform their coalition with Reform, would join with United to form a broad left government with Hirono remaining as Prime Minister. This is the first time that United as been a member of the government.

Oof is Tulsi Gabbard an MP in this timeline?
 
would the 2028 elections count as current politics? because I have a piece of 'art' that I want to work on, that includes that election

Depends if the piece centers on the period between 2010 and 2030. If not, 2028 is (marginally) acceptable if your POD can make it discernable from OTL.

Is Gabbard's party explicitly conservative/far-right? Populism and federalism sound rather...non-contentious?

Oof is Tulsi Gabbard an MP in this timeline?
I was wondering that myself. Gabbard says that her time serving in the American military was what caused her to deviate from her father's politics (at the very least re: LGBT rights), and the fact that children usually trend towards their parents' politics until they get older. Barring some equivalent military experience ITTL that Gabbard might still be involved in her father's politics/party.
I'll just pretend she's Alliance or United
 
Oof is Tulsi Gabbard an MP in this timeline?
Yes Tulsi is a List member in Parliament for her father's party, and is seen as her father's likely successor. Though Tulsi is much more moderate than her father in some of his more controversial views. (Sort of like Marine and Jean-Marie Le Pen in OTL France, though of course the Gabbards are way less out there than the Le Pens)

Independence's position of federalism is based on "Returning power to the people" and that the "Elites" in the Parliament are too out of touch. This and their strong opposition to the West Pacific Union are the central tenets of the party and their positions on other issues are less emphasized. Though in general, the party as it is led by Mike Gabbard is right wing on social issues while center-left of economic issues.
 
I’ve been compiling this list and re-updating it (every 50 pages or so) for quite a while now, and was originally going to post it at the start of the next wikibox thread as a sort of “best of” review thingy. But under this site’s new format/style/set-up (mini-rant: it’s hard on my eyes, I can’t tell where boxes/posts end and others begin; it’s clunky, hard to navigate through and even harder to look at; a huge mess all around), it’s now impossible for me to finish this, or for me to ever do such a thing like this ever again, for that matter. So, yeah, this is what I had so far:

I don’t know if any posts beyond page 401 got (or will get) more than 59 likes, because now I can’t see the number of likes each post gets. It’s the end of an era; and it was good while it lasted. Ah well, that’s life I guess…

In the winter of 2024, a Mitsubishi Shoukaku business jet went down in the Baltic Sea just off the coast of Prussia, taking with it most of the surviving members of the Polish royal family. King Bolesław III died, along with his wife, Marie Beatrix of Württemberg, and his two young daughters. Upon his death, he was succeeded by his only surviving brother, Kazimierz VI. The future of the dynasty was not certain. Kazimierz had been ill with cancer over the years, and his wife, Eleonore Auguste of Hanover, suffered at least two miscarriages during their short marriage. His death in 2027 was sudden but not unexpected giving his health troubles.

However, this left Poland without a suitable heir to the throne. When the Kingdom of Poland was reestablished in 1921, it likewise adapted the custom of royal elections after the old Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The electorate is composed of all members of the Senate, Sejm and Privy Council; provincial governors and members of the provincial assemblies; and the five hundred wealthiest taxpayers who didn't already have a vote. Since the coronation of King Lech III, the three previous royal elections (1967, 2019 and 2024) had all been mere formalities as the designated heir was the only candidate, winning more than 90% of the vote in each election. The 2027 Polish royal election would be something completely different, however. Three major candidates were put forward:

Viktor Wilhelm is just happy to be here
  1. Prince Karl Christoph of Wied-Runkel - He is the grandson of Princess Salomea of Poland, the oldest daughter of King Lech III. His father and two elder brothers disclaimed their succession claim in favour of his, which was backed by most Poles. He is also a collateral of a collateral of the Tudor dynasty, as his wife, Agnes Anne of Fulda, is the brother of Ernst Christoph II, Prince of Fulda and First Minister of the East of England (her aunt also married to Archduke Lionel, Duke of York).
  2. Archduke Franz Wenzel of Austria - He is the grandson of Princess Barbara of Poland, the youngest daughter of King Lech III. Unlike Karl Christoph, he spoke passing conversational Polish. His candidacy had little popular support in Poland, but he had the strong backing of the Hapsburg establishment in Vienna.
  3. Prince Viktor Wilhlem of Hanover - He is the uncle of Queen Dowager Eleonore Auguste of Hanover. He spoke fluent Poland and had spent considerable time in Poland as the favourite uncle of the now-widowed queen. He spent large sums of money in building new hospitals and schools, but despite his rather genial and affable nature, he was not well liked as he was widely seen as a puppet of Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia.
The short election campaign was wrought with turmoil and controversy as millions of pounds flowed into Poland to influence voters' minds, accompanied by fake social media accounts, A.I.-generated new articles, troll farms and more. The Hessian and Prussian camps refused to cooperate because they both assumed that if no candidate managed to to win a majority in the first round of voting, there'd be a runoff. When it came time to vote, Franz Wenzel finished only 40 votes ahead of Karl Christoph, with Viktor Wilhelm finishing a distant third. Even as Karl Christoph began to prepare for a second round of voting, Franz Wacław was declared the King of Poland.

The war began slowly at first and then all at once. Thousands of electors were detained by Hapsburg agents or were otherwise unable to attend the next round of voting in Warsaw. Protests and riots, both pro-Hapsburg and anti-Hapsburg took place in all the major Polish cities. After five weeks of riots, Karl Christoph declared himself Lech August, King of the Poles. Meanwhile, in the west, former Foreign Minister Mieczysław Zynger was elected Governor-General of the People's Regency Council. The war then began in earnest with battalions of soldiers with modern military weapons in unmarked military uniforms crossing over from the Galician border to assert Franz Wacław's claim to the throne against the Royal Polish Army, who largely supported the claim of Lech August.

His smile and optimism: gone


Two years later, the war has largely ground down into a bloody stalemate between the three primary sides, with precision-guided artillery and ubiquitous drone coverage making it nearly impossible to mass sufficient forces for offensives. The Hessians loyal to Lech August were largely concentrated in the north, Hapsburg loyalists in the south and to the west is the People's Regency Council. The frontline can be drawn as a chevron, with a line drawn from Kalisz to Płock and then another line drawn from Płock to Lublin. The capital of Warsaw has been heavily damaged in intense urban fighting. Austria still denounces that they're actively involved beyond providing intelligence assets, even though Stasi Sturmjäger commandos have been spotted operating in Poland. Prussia has supported the People's Regency Council with intelligence and equipment. The Council, whose primary aim is for a royal election with a universal franchise, territory has become a safe haven of sorts for Jewish Poles and ethnic Germans. The breakdown of law and order in Poland has seen the rise of banditry, many of whom have radical politics. Reactionary militias have targeted Jewish communities (15% of the population was Jewish before the war began) forcing them to either leave for safer land or to form their own militias for protection. Russia sits on the fringes and has lead the two in attempting to negotiate peace between the different claimants. The Yalta I and II cease fires have both so far failed to reach a lasting peace (though the Hessian loyalists and the People's Regency Council have abided by the terms of Yalta I along their boundary).​

A small teaser for the revival of my Asia-centric graphic timeline.

The Xianhui Emperor, born Yuzhang of the Aisin Gioro Royal house, is the incumbent Emperor of the Qing Dynasty, and has reigned since his coronation in 2015. Ascending upon the death of his father, the widely admired Renzun Emperor, Yuzhang's already advanced age (he was 73 on his coronation day) initially lead to speculation that the power of the Throne would recede under his tenure. However, Yuzhang quickly proved himself to be a dynamic ruler, and was able to push the Qing Parliament to enact further political reforms including a push for greater gender equality. The Emperor has also garnered praise for his handling of ethnic and cultural issues, and became the first Qing Emperor to give a speech in Russian to an assembled crowd in Harbin on Orthodox Christmas. A lifelong Buddhist, the Emperor has notably leveraged his faith to reach out to Han and Korean Qing citizens to appeal to cultural and national unity.

Emperor Xianhui's popularity would spike after his calm and resolute response to a new round of terror attacks within Hulunbuir carried out by Mongol nationalists; his diplomatic presence has also been frequently praised, and Yuzhang became the first Qing Emperor to visit the Forbidden Palace in Peking since the Manchu Restoration over a hundred years ago during a diplomatic mission to the Chinese Empire. The Emperor has also prioritized relations with the Japanese Empire and it's Co-Prosperity Sphere after a decade of slowly rising tensions, taking a more cautious approach to the Kwantung Question than his father did, conspicuously avoiding the issue altogether while abroad on diplomatic missions. Though well liked by much of the Qing population, the Emperor has already dealt with increased activity from Mongol and Korean nationalist groups in the few short years of his reign thusfar.

Though Yuzhang hails from a family well known for longevity (Puyi reigned for nearly 50 years following restoration, and the Xianhui Emperor's father lived well into his 90s), his poor health is an open secret and certain diplomatic and Imperial duties have already begun to fall to the Emperor's son, Heng Jin.

From Desire the Right:

Richard John "Rick" Santorum is an American attorney and politician affiliated with the Freedom Party who is currently serving as the 53rd President of the United States. Elected to the House of Representatives in 1990, he would go on to become Senator from Pennsylvania in the 1994 election, serving until his loss in 2012. After this point he would run for President in the 2016 election, which he would narrowly win, defeating the incumbent Farmer-Labor Party President Barbara Lee. Many attribute his victory to that year's particularly strong Green Party showing, whose candidate, Elizabeth May of Connecticut, gained 6.7 percent off the popular vote. Santorum hails from the christian-democratic Solidarity Caucus of the Freedom Party and is associated with socially conservative and fiscally moderate policies.

Hillary Diane Rodham, publicly known as Hillary Rodham Lundgren prior to her 2016 Presidential campaign, is an American lawyer and politician affiliated with the Freedom Party who is currently serving as the 45th Vice President of the United States. Previously a Chicago-based lawyer, Rodham rose to prominence in Sweden due to her association with her then-husband Bo Lundren, who would later become Prime Minister of Sweden. However, Lundgren would fall from grace following their much-publicized separation in 2003 and subsequent divorce in 2005, despite the divorce being no-fault according to both parties. After their separation, Rodham would move back to her birthplace of Chicago, Illinois and returned to practicing law. In 2006 she would run for Lieutenant Governor of Illinois as the new running mate of Freedom Party candidate Rod Blagojevich, who would go on to win, unseating incumbent Governor Mike Madigan. She would succeed to the governorship upon Blagojevich's resignation to become Secretary of the Treasury in the cabinet of President Michael Bloomberg. In 2016 she would run for the Freedom Party presidential nomination, finally dropping the "Lundgren" from her name, but lose to Rick Santorum, who would ultimately pick her as his running mate. The Santorum/Rodham ticket would win the election, and Rodham would be sworn in as VP the following year. Rodham is affiliated with the Rockefeller Caucus of the Freedom Party, being associated with policies more socially liberal than much of the Freedom Party.

 
It is said Richard Nixon's presidency revolved around the nuclear age. His inauguration saw the city of Goldsboro suffer a nuclear weapon dropped on it, his war in Cuba saw Posadists use a "dirty bomb", he received a Nobel Peace Prize (and reelection in '68) for his ability to create a nuke-free way to end the Sino-Indian War in '67, his third term saw the third usage of nuclear weapons in battle, as the Chinese and Soviets warred over borders, and by then Nixon had too large of a consensus. He then saw Switzerland develop nuclear arms, the South African war use them, the near usage of the Sampson Option, and in his final term and days, development of nuclear weapons by the United Gulf Republics in the fears of more Shas and Kings returning. Nixon saw destruction of human life that Lincoln, Wilson, and Roosevelt had prayed would never occur. The Cold War was over, the Hot Wars, however, had begun. But to a majority of Americans, Nixon won't be remembered for the nuclear age, he will be remembered as the man who ruled America for a longer period of time than many kings did their kingdoms. Seven straight terms, and then another half term for measure. Nixon's presidency outlived the Democrats, who entered 1961 with a senate supermajority, and in 1976, collapsed under the weight of regional and tribal divisions.

It is said Richard Nixon's presidency revolved around the nuclear age. His inauguration saw the city of Goldsboro suffer a nuclear weapon dropped on it, his war in Cuba saw Posadists use a "dirty bomb", he received a Nobel Peace Prize (and reelection in '68) for his ability to create a nuke-free way to end the Sino-Indian War in '67, his third term saw the third usage of nuclear weapons in battle, as the Chinese and Soviets warred over borders, and by then Nixon had too large of a consensus. He then saw Switzerland develop nuclear arms, the South African war use them, the near usage of the Sampson Option, and in his final term and days, development of nuclear weapons by the United Gulf Republics in the fears of more Shas and Kings returning. Nixon saw destruction of human life that Lincoln, Wilson, and Roosevelt had prayed would never occur. The Cold War was over, the Hot Wars, however, had begun. But to a majority of Americans, Nixon won't be remembered for the nuclear age, he will be remembered as the man who ruled America for a longer period of time than many kings did their kingdoms. Seven straight terms, and then another half term for measure. Nixon's presidency outlived the Democrats, who entered 1961 with a senate supermajority, and in 1976, collapsed under the weight of regional and tribal divisions. The replacement was the Opposition Party, a cobbled unit of former northern Democrats, Rockefeller Republicans, a few compromising Birchers, and some peaceniks out west.
