So, this is something I've worked on for a little while.

In the intital days of the Glorious Revolution, the Scottish Estates gathered to discuss the decision by the English Parliament to declare for William of Orange and his wife, Mary Stuart, over the King James II and VII. Intitally it had appeared that a number of high profile Scottish Lords would be welcomed into William of Orange's inner circle and that a new King would prove to be an ally to the large presbyterian majority in Scotland.

However, whether due to English pressure or ignorance of William's unpopular status within many in Scotland, William choose to exclude many Scottish Lords from his council and had refused to seat the Scottish Privy Council in London - ordering them to hold court in the outer burgh of Ham where King James now also was effectively imprisioned. Worse still for William's position, was when a group of presbyterian ministers were given a letter - supposidly from William to the Viscount of Dundee, John Graham, pledging his support for episcopalianism in Scotland.

Word reached James VII of the unrest in Scotland and the King, escaping his light Dutch guard, fled for Scotland. Eventually, James VII would be proclaimed King of Scotland alone by the Scottish Estates and by the General Assembly of the Kirk. Many future and bloody skirmishes between England and Scotland would follow however the Glorious Revolution in England would herald the end to the Union of the Crowns and the rebirth of Scotland as a whole independent nation from its neighbour to the south.

Over the next five centuaries Scotland would undergo huge change, like all nations throughout the world, and the power of the Monarchs would slowly recede and give rise to the new senior political authority of the nation - the Prime Minister.

This needs to be a timeline!
2019 Philippine Federal Election
In 2019, the Philippine Federal Commonwealth held its 12th federal election since its achievement of sovereignty from the Japanese Empire in 1988. In 2018, Liberal Party Prime Minister Joseph Estrada, during his 3rd non-consecutive term as Prime Minister, was implicated in a multi-million dollar corruption scandal known as the Davao City Scandal. Jesse Robredo, a member of the Liberals at that time, led the intra-party campaign to oust Estrada from his postion, but after the effort failed, Robredo would leave the Liberal Party along with many other of Estrada's detractors to create the new National People's Party. In the 2019 election, the NPP would rocket to first place to secure a majority in the General Assembly, winning all but two of the nation's 12 provinces. The conservative Federal Democratic Party and National Party would both lose several seats in the NPP's rise. The left-wing Socialist Worker's Party and the Mindanao Liberation Front, which advocates for the independence of Mindanao, would also make gains in 2019.

The 682 United Provinces election, which would turn out as one of the largest landslide victories for the Nationals ever in Kauresian history. 2 years into the deadly Panthalassic War, Reginald Coffey had staked an anti-communist sentiment into Kauresian voters as Sonia-Berdia's International Council of Cooperation had purposefully invaded Escrot just out west in Cepudara, who as a member of the Roberplan Accords, dragged all of its member states into a war with the Sonia-Berdian Council Republics and its allies, triggering a global war. Coffey campaigned to secure a National federal trifecta, securing majorities in the House and Senate, and as well as the Presidency, Coffey expanded welfare programs and put tax cuts on the middle and lower class brackets. President Coffey following the beginning of the war pumped a substantial amount of funding into Kauresia's military and defense in efforts to contribute to naval warfare happening between Concordian, Callish, and Escrian forces between the ICC, and as well as trying to curb threats from the rising power Ajitipia, which had succumbed to a Ganzist-Koberist revolution in 667. Despite the bipartisan support for the war, the Progressive-Labor party still had its anti-war factions within the party, some of which we're bidding for the presidency, one of them including Marlin Ifficat, a Congressman, who was one of the only people to vote against declaring a state of war against member states of the ICC.

Despite what much of the polls said, Ifficat won the Progressive-Labor primaries against centrist Progressive William Bayers, having lost the popular vote, but had miraculously won a majority of provincial contests and delegates required. Ifficat became the first Presidential candidate who was a Hyena, who then chose the first female vice presidential nominee, Rosalina Miller. Ifficat's socially democratic policies called for tackling big pharmaceuticals leeching on the further privatization of the National Insurance Program after years under conservative and centrist Nats and Progs, which Ifficat believed that federal regulation of drug prices was vital in protecting lower class Kauresians with disabilities. Ifficat's campaign for president largely was met with smearing from the National side, painting him as a weak man and a bootlicker for the communists of the ICC, this would prove largely successful in the polls as 3 months before the election only 28.5% of people said that they would vote for Ifficat. Ifficat's largely progressive views on social issues, such as LGBT and women's rights also was popular among voters but his pro-life views due to his Dorotistic faith would mostly limit it from him.

Come election day, Ifficat performed terribly, only receiving 38.9% of the popular vote compared to Coffey's 59.4%, Ifficat would only carry 3 states, one including his own and two others on Kauresia's east coast, which would stake 682 as Progressive-Labor's worst performance in an election since its conception. Despite the major defeat for Marlin Ifficat and Progressive-Labor, Ifficat would continue into his later life in his seat and as a Senator up until his death in 11 IE.

Here's a Russia infobox from the China TL.


The Russian Federation, the democratic capitalist successor to the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic after the fall of the Soviet Union, was not exactly a state whose foundation was the result of great enthusiasm from its people. Founded in no small part under the doctrine of the last President of the Soviet Union and General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev and President of Russia Boris Yeltsin, and to an extent following in the footsteps of former Eastern Bloc countries like Poland and its southeastern neighbor Mongolia, the Federation’s formation was heralded as the dawn of a new era for Russia by the west.

Since the 1960s, the Soviet Union had been seen internationally as dying a slow death; its backing of communists in Korea and Vietnam and Egypt in the Six Day War and Yom Kippur War, all of which were defeated by American allies China and Israel, humiliated it repeatedly, to the point that President Brezhnev and the Politburo decided against invading Afghanistan due to fears of yet another defeat, and it suffered economic stagnation during the 1970s and early 1980s.

Once Gorbachev came to power in 1985, his perestroika and glasnost reforms pre-empted the gradual liberalizing reforms of many governments in the Eastern world. Ironically, however, in Russia itself they have faced more backlash than perhaps anywhere else, along with two major constitutional crises in the early 1990s. Prior to the USSR being dissolved, in 1991 hardline communists attempted a coup to overthrow Gorbachev and Yeltsin, which ultimately failed, but proved a premonition of things to come.

From 1992 Gorbachev’s ally Yeltsin would serve as President of the Russian Federation, but in this time the powers of the President were vaguely defined, and when the referenda held in April 1993 saw votes of confidence in Yeltsin’s leadership and economic policy, as well as supporting new elections to the State Duma and for the Presidency.

For the next few months, relations between Yeltsin and the Russian parliament were at best tense, especially since the 1978 constitution (which was still in place) did not establish what powers the President had versus parliament. This came to a head when, in September, Yeltsin ordered the dissolution of Parliament for a December election in accordance with the April referendum. Since the Russian Constitutional Court found this to be unconstitutional (and since they opposed the move), Parliament responded by attempting to impeach Yeltsin, and though he relented and proposed a presidential election for June 1994, this was rejected by Parliament in favour of simultaneous elections in March.

Yeltsin not only rejected this, but cut off power to the Parliament buildings in retaliation, sparking up major protests against him. Vice President Alexander Rutskoy, who had vocally opposed Yeltsin’s policy measures since late 1992, declared himself acting President on the 22nd September. With clashes on the streets between pro-communist and pro-Yeltsin groups (the latter including the neo-Nazi Russian National Unity group), the military ultimately stepped in on the 4th October, not to defend Yeltsin as he had hoped, but to clear the protests and force the democratically mandated elections to go ahead.

Rutskoy was endorsed by the Communist Party due to his siding with the predominantly Communist Parliament, and he and Yeltsin were seen as the main contenders for the Presidency. In the State Duma elections, the Communists seemed to have a lead in the polls, with the majority of Russians sympathizing with the party’s objections to Yeltsin, but being wary of it for fears it would revive authoritarianism.

Despite this, Yeltsin’s reputation for liberalizing Russia in a positive way was in tatters thanks to the constitutional crisis, and his problems trying to win re-election were made even worse when it emerged in late November that he had unsuccessfully urged the military to crush the rebellion. On top of this, the nomination of Rutskoy was a canny move that allowed a supporter of democracy and a critic of Yeltsin’s neoliberalism to be coalesced around by anti-Yeltsin voters.


Rutskoy won the Presidency easily on the first round, and the Communists remained the largest faction in the State Duma with little trouble. In the next few years, there would be big changes in Russia, but not simply a reversion to a communist dictatorship like many had feared. The changes would be altogether stranger than that…
