Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics or Political Figures Here)

This dialogue about President Kirkman and the flawed writing of Season 3 has inspired a thought in my head: take TV's most in/famous Presidents and put them in the same timeline. I'm thinking of appearances from Bartlet (The West Wing), Santos (The West Wing), Allen (Commander-in-Chief), Kirkman (Designated Survivor), Palmer (24), Underwood (House of Cards), and Meyer (Veep)? I'm figuring that President Underwood could take over as Santos's VP a la House of Cards and then, after having Santos resign assuming POTUS, die in the Capitol bombing a la Designated Survivor allowing Kirkman to step in while choosing, say, C.J. or OTL Muriel Bowser for the VP slot (as these shows often like to cameo OTL people/figures). Who wins in 2020 after the clusterbomb of the Kirkman administration? I'm thinking Underwood's original challenger for the office in Will Conway or outlandish populist Selina Meyer.
Very interesting, I'd be down to see that.
 
I think I remember if the POD is far back enough it doesn't matter. Like the parallels are clear, so Katherine Harris as 'corrupt female conservative' is not very controversial, while Matt Gaetz as 'young strongman' is also not.
Eh, if I were you I'd just play it safe just in case. Wouldn't want to risk anything.
 
I don't think that this is current poltiics since it is about fictional country.
But if someone made a wikibox of an independent New York and Delaware both with Trump and Biden as their respective leaders then that would be considered current politics. Would Gaetz count since he is a current U.S. House Representative?
 
I don't think that this is current poltiics since it is about fictional country.
I mean, my main concern is that it uses OTL names and faces with OTL ideological similarities to their respective, albeit fictional, parties. Maybe these figures aren't a 1:1 comparison to their Korean counterparts, but the comparison to be made is still there.

California voted for the Democratic candidate, Horatio Seymour, over the three other candidates, incumbent Republican President Abraham Lincoln, Independent candidate George B. McClellan and Radical Republican candidate John C. Frémont.

Seymour won the Golden State by a narrow margin of 2.29%.

California was the home state of Radical Republican candidate John C. Frémont, though the was born in Georgia, which had become part of the Confederate States of America during the Second American Revolution.

Well, when this first showed up it gave me the mistaken impression that Nayagar was a colony on Eris and not a separate theater.
It is a single colony, yeah. I've been going back and forth about whether to set Nayagar on Eris or Triton. Either way, I want it to be located somewhere deep in the back of the solar system, and Pluto seems a bit too cliche.

Very well done. I commend you on sticking with this for so long. I'm genuinely a little sad to see it finally completed. Any thoughts on what your next project might be?

Even though that I've completed all the election results for the 1864 US presidential election and the 1867 Confederate presidential election, my Guns of the South infobox series is not dead yet. I still plan on making an infobox about the Richmond Massacre that happened on March 4, 1868 as well as an infobox about the Second American Revolution (the American Civil War), though it will be a little while before I make those two infoboxes since I want to focus on other projects. Apart for those two things, I'm not sure what else I could do.

As for other projects, I'm honestly not sure. Some more movie infoboxes will probably be in the works within a few days.

The September 11 attacks were a series of coordinated suicide terrorist attacks by the militant Islamist terror group al-Qaeda against the United States and the Union of Sovereign States. On September 11, 2001, six groups of four al-Qaeda members each attempted to hijack a commercial aircraft and crash it into a prominent building on the American East Coast or Moscow with the intent of causing mass casualties and major structural damage. Planes successfuly hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, the USS Ministry of Foreign Affairs building, and the USS Ministry of Defense building, while another plane damaged the South Tower of the World Trade Center, and a sixth plane landed before it could be successfully hijacked.

Aeroflot Flight 6555 was the first plane to hit its target, crashing into the USS Ministry of Foreign Affairs building at 3:40 PM Moscow time (8:40 AM ET). About a minute later, American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Both buildings would collapse within two hours. The USS Ministry of Defence building was struck by Aeroflot Flight 6535 at 3:52 PM Moscow time (8:52 AM ET). At 9:01 AM ET, hijacker-pilot Khalid al-Mihdhar attempted to flew United Airlines Flight 175 into the South Tower of the World Trade Center, hitting the southeastern corner of the building and sending debris crashing onto Church Street and the 4 and 5 World Trade Center buildings. American Airlines Flight 77 was the final plane to crash, hitting the west side of the Pentagon at 9:37 AM and causing a partial collapse. A sixth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was intended to be hijacked and crashed into the U.S. Capitol building, but the shutdown of U.S. airspace caused it to land in Cleveland, Ohio before the hijacking could occur. In total, the attacks killed 2,362 people in the United States and 628 people in Russia and caused over 28,000 injuries as well as billions of dollars of infrastructure and property damage. While it was spared collapse, the South Tower ultimately was deconstructed due to the damage it absorbed during the attacks.

(The death toll ends up pretty similar to OTL, despite the Russian casualties, because of the South Tower not collapsing (al-Mihdhar was a worse pilot than al-Shehhi, who in TTL was hitting the USS Defence Ministry), the North Tower being hit slightly earlier and thus a few less people being at work, people leaving the Pentagon because the coordinated attack becomes obvious earlier, and Flight 93 not getting hijacked at all because airspace gets shut down earlier.)

The Attack on Guantánamo Bay aka Operation Alsatian was a surprise military strike by the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm and the German Kriegsmarine upon the United States against the naval base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba just before 7:00 a.m., on Sunday, June 22, 1941. The United States was a neutral country at the time; the attack led to its formal entry into the Second Great War the next day. The Berlin Accord intended the attack as a preventive action, with the goal of preventing the United States Atlantic Fleet from interfering with its planned military actions in the South Pacific and the Caribbean against the rebellious former Dominions of Australia, New Zealand and Canada, and various overseas territories of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the United States, and its close ally, the Japanese Empire. Over the course of the next 48 hours there were coordinated attacks on US-held possessions in the Caribbean and the Philippines, the Panama Canal, the Dutch East Indies, Canada, Australia, Formosa and the Japanese base at Truk Lagoon.

The combined Royal Navy/Kriegsmarine task force had departed Gibraltar under the cover of darkness nearly three weeks earlier. Hugging the coast of Africa and avoiding known sea lanes to avoid being spotted by merchantmen or by USN long range air patrols operating out Puerto Rico, the task force managed to avoid detection as it reached its planned attack position, about 125 miles NE of the Turks and Caicos island chain. The first phase of the attack had been set in place over the preceding two months, as the RAF detachment at RAF Trenchtown, Jamaica had regularly been staging mock raids against Guantánamo, designed to test both the base response times and USN/USMC tactics. These "raids" would consist of a mixture of Blenheim and Beaufort bombers, with a rotating escort of Spitfire and Hurricanes. The Americans would usually scramble additional land based USMC fighters to supplement the normal USN patrols. The attack plan called for a larger than usual group to act as a diversion, hoping to pull as many alert fighters away from the base as possible.

The main attack began slightly before 9am Eastern time. RN Task Force G, under the command of Vice Admiral Alban Curteis, was built on 4 aircraft carriers: Ark Royal, Glorious, Courageous and Formidable, carrying a mixture of Swordfish torpedo planes, Skua dive bombers and Sea Hurricanes making their combat debut. The Kriegsmarine force, was centered on the newly commissioned Graf Zeppelin and carried a complement of BF-109T fighters and JU-87C Stuka dive bombers. The bases’ long range radar picked up the carrier attack groups, but dismissed them as expected reinforcements coming from the mainland. As a result, the attackers achieved total surprise. The torpedo planes primarily focused on the battleships, moored along Medico Cay in a formation that had been affectionally dubbed “Broadway” by their crews. The bombers directed their attacks against the carriers, having determined that the unarmored flight decks of the American carriers to be vulnerable to dive bombing attacks. They would be proven correct to devastating effect. The first wave saw the fleet carriers Ranger and Yorktown sunk along with the escort carrier Long Island. The battleships Texas, New York, Idaho, Mississippi, New Mexico and Arkansas were also sunk, although New Mexico and Arkansas were eventually raised and returned to service. The New York did manage to get underway in an attempt to escape the harbor, but a bomb penetrated the midship turret magazine, causing a massive explosion blowing the ship apart near Fisherman’s Point.

The 40 USN/USMC alert fighters, returning to base at max speed after hearing the frantic distress calls being made by the base and ship radio crews, finally arrived over the bay about an hour into the attack. They had been drawn away almost to the Cayman Islands by the diversionary raid and found themselves entering a hornet’s nest of planes over the bay. The mixed group of Buffalo and Wildcat fighters did score some hits on the attack planes before being drawn into fierce dogfights with the BF-109s and Sea Hurricane escorts. Their efforts were further complicated by the appearance of the second wave of rearmed attackers launched from the carriers to the northeast and new group of land based planes launched from RAF Trenchtown. The RAF planes specifically targeted the airfields and base maintenance facilities and crippled them for the immediate future.

Admirals Curetis and Carls, having received extremely favorable damage assessments from the returning pilots and concerned that their position had been identified by a passing USN seaplane patrol operating out of Key West, recalled their planes a little past mid-day. In addition to the carriers and battleships, 9 other ships were sunk and over 200 aircraft were destroyed on the ground or in the air. The French carrier Béarn and heavy cruiser Tourville, interned at the base since their escape from the Fall of France in May 1940, avoided damage but otherwise did not participate in the battle beyond some scattered anti-aircraft fire. Nearly 3,500 American servicemen were killed and 2,500 others wounded. Almost 1,000 Cuban civilians were killed or wounded in the City of Guantánamo. The base, which had controversially be made the USN's main Atlantic outpost in early 1940 as part of FDR's "Third New Deal" rearmament plan, had its ammunition and maintenance facilities heavily damaged. Admiral Ernest King was killed with most of his command staff when the base HQ was targeted in the first wave of the attack, which further hampered the American response. British and German losses were comparatively light: 53 aircraft, 1 cruiser (HMS Apollo, torpedoed on June 23rd by USS Skipjack) and 2 submarines were sunk, with total casualties reaching 600. The Americans were somewhat fortunate that their two newest carriers (Wasp, Hornet) and battleships (North Carolina, Washington) were undergoing fitting out trials along the Eastern Seaboard and were not present for the attack. These ships would form the nucleus of the USN’s Fast Task forces in the early phase of the war, utilizing hit and run tactics to harass the long enemy supply lines coming from Europe.

The success of the attacks enabled the successful followup assaults on Puerto Rico (captured by airborne forces on June 28th) and the largely uncontested landings on the various US, Dutch and Free French possessions in the Lesser Antilles that were declared secured by July 1st. These provided a base of operations for the upcoming Operation Bulldog, the ultimately unsuccessful campaign to seize Panama and the Canal.

Are you aware of the Cerulean Sigil?
90EJ5Ib.png

The Tragedie of the Cerulean Queen is a play that was written by an unknown author during the Jacobean Era. The play is set in 21st Century British America, mostly in the city of Jamestown. The play is divided into three acts that depict the downfall of Queen Nitha of the Kingdom of Lydesh during her visit to the comparatively backwater of Jamestown, Virginia, British America.​
Act I: The first act sets the stage for the Cerulean Queen Nitha, her affair with Neaqure, and the plotting of Sryphe and the Alchemist to overthrow the monarchy and establish a Dutch style republic in her kingdom. Sryphe begins to manipulate Neaqure and the Alchemist begins working to create a poison that will cause Queen Nitha to sleep forever.
Act II: This begins with Neaqure agreeing to help Sryphe and the Alchemist to put Queen Nitha to sleep after they threaten to reveal everything to their father, a powerful Duke and opponent of the Queen. Act II ends with the perfection of the poison by the Alchemist and he gives it to Neaqure to poison the Queen.
Act III: Neaqure approaches the Queen during a feast that is occurring right before they are all to leave back for the Kingdom of Lydesh. With much hesitation and soliloquy, they poison their love. The poison doesn't set for another hour after Queen Nitha retires to her chambers and takes Neaqure with her. Right before it sets in, Neaqure comes clean to the Queen. Nitha laments that she wished that Neaqure would have just spoken to her, before she falls into her eternal slumber.
The play ends with Sryphe and the Alchemist celebrating their victory with bottles of wine. Sryphe claiming that the Queen is dead and Neaqure will be blamed, a victory for them all. Sryphe begins to choke and the Alchemist gloats about how there is only one reason to kill the Queen was to puppet her heir, a young prince. A republic would get in the way of his plans. The Alchemist then throws the choking Sryphe overboard. The two men exit the stage confident in their victory.

There is much superstition surrounding the play. Its unknown author, the early science fiction elements present in the play, but most importantly is how it fits with the other "Color Tragedies". Academically called the Prism Dynasty, the Tragedie of the Cerulean Queen is only one part of a much large theatrical cycle. It includes The King in Yellow, The Hanged King's Tragedy, and the Emperor of Despair. All plays within the Prism Dyansty are fragmentary, with Cerulean Queen being the most complete out of all of them. The is also multiple legends about the plays causing actors, directors, and audience members suffer at-
