And now, here's the Northern Saskatchewan Exclusion Zone.

What the Wikibox does not tell you is that the area is largely saturated with nuclear weapons in an attempt to terminate SCP-096, the red zone at least. The orange zone saw some nuclear bombardment, but not to that extent. The population of the area is not zero as the orange area still has a few communities along the west bank of the Reindeer River.

The 2018 United States presidential election was the 56th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. The Progressive-Republican ticket of North Carolina Senator Terrence Hughes, and his running mate Patrick Clement of New Hampshire, defeated the Federalist ticket of Vice President Benjamin Lopez of Florida and Governor Mike McCarthy of Utah by a narrow margin of 270 electoral votes to 268. The election was notable for its closeness, with just 284,000 votes separating the two major candidates. Hughes won his home state of North Carolina, which traditionally voted Federalist, by just over 3,500 votes - had Lopez won the state, he would have won the election. With his victory, Hughes became the first ever African-American president, as well as the first to hail from North Carolina.

Vice President Lopez won the Federalist primaries without much competition, although he did face a challenge from the right, in the form of conservative talk host and former Representative Richard Sage, who ran on a platform opposing the interventionism of the Freeman presidency. Though Lopez won the vast majority of primary contests, Sage's populist campaign has been retrospectively blamed for damaging the Federalist nominee, especially with Sage's refusal to support Lopez even after he won the nomination. The Progressive-Republican primary was expected to be a contest between moderate George Tuler and former Attorney General Hilda Monteo; instead, Hughes' powerful debate performances and success in rallying African-Americans and progressives behind his insurgent campaign saw him capture the nomination after performing well in early contests and sweeping the South.

The campaign focused on many issues, most notably the foreign policy of the Freeman administration, with American intervention in Egypt growing increasingly more expensive and unpopular with the American public. Whilst Lopez and most mainstream Federalists supported continuing the Egyptian War, Progressive-Republicans were slowly becoming more in favour of early withdrawal and, as a vocal opponent of foreign intervention, Hughes became a lightning rod for those who had grown tired of Federalist escapades abroad. Other key issues included the lagging economy, potential American membership of the North American Free Trade Union and immigration which, despite hostility towards immigration from within the Federalist Party, had steeply grown under President Freeman.

On Election Day, Hughes won the electoral college by the slimmest of margins, winning 270 votes to Lopez’s 268. He also won the popular vote by a slim margin, winning just 284,000 more than his opponent. Notably the election saw many close states, with North Carolina, West Virginia, Ohio and New Hampshire (won by Hughes) and Washington and South Carolina (won by Lopez) all being won by a margin of less than 1%. The candidates were closest in Hughes’ home state, which was traditionally Federalist but swung dramatically to the Progressive-Republicans. Turnout was remarkably high for a presidential election, with over 63% of registered voters casting their ballot, the highest turnout since 1910. Post-election analysis has put this down to a soaring turnout amongst African-Americans and younger voters.

After the election Hughes was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States, with Patrick Clement being sworn in as the 47th Vice President. Hughes remained President until his assassination in May 2020, after which Clement assumed the presidency.
 
POD in the late 1700s, Federalist Party remains competitive with the Democratic-Republicans instead of fizzling out into obscurity. By the 1900s, the Republican Party and the Federalist Party are the two major parties until the Progressive Party emerges from the progressive wings of both major parties, although it harms the Republican Party more than the Federalists. Eventually the Progressives and Republicans merge, and they position themselves on the left of the political spectrum, with the Federalists on the right.

The Progressive-Republican Party is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States, alongside its main rival, the Federalist Party. As of 2020, the Progressive-Republican Party holds the presidency and the House of Representatives, as well as a majority of state governorships. Three of the nine sitting justices on the Supreme Court were appointed by Progressive-Republican presidents.

The party traces its roots to the tripartite days of the late 1900s and early 1910s, after the Progressive Party had grown in popularity. In the 1914 elections, the Federalist Party won a super majority in the Senate, as well as the presidency and a House majority, despite the combined totals of the Progressive and Republicans not being far off double the support held by the Federalists. As a result, a controversial merger took place, which moved the Republican Party firmly leftward. An exodus of conservative Republicans followed, who promptly joined the Federalists. The party's ideology has remained consistent throughout its 105-year history, with the party supporting a strengthening of the federal government over state governments, an expansion of the welfare state and, particularly since the 1970s, social liberal ideas and policies. Its support was traditionally concentrated in rural states in the Midwest and the Western United States, whilst it remained competitive in the South. However, since the championing of civil rights throughout the 1950s, the party has become more dominant in the Northeast, and its base is now located predominantly in urbanized, coastal states. The party's base was traditionally the working-class, although in the 21st century women, college graduates, younger voters and minorities have formed key components of the Progressive-Republican vote.

The party's philosophy generally champions liberal and social liberal values, with the more radical base tending to trend more progressive policies and viewpoints. In the Senate, Progressive-Republicans tend to be more centrist (and in some rare cases even conservative), whilst House Progressive-Republicans, facing more regular elections, are often more left-wing. On economic issues, the party supports higher levels of taxation, higher levels of government spending, environmental protection, equal opportunity, universal healthcare and affordable education. On social issues, the party advocates LGBT rights, including gay marriage, abortion rights and criminal justice reform. To a lesser extent, some Progressive-Republicans also support more extreme policies such as drug legalization and electoral reform.

Since its establishment, 8 Progressive-Republicans have served as President of the United States. The first was Robert J. McKellan, who was elected in the 1922 presidential election and served two terms as President from 1923 until 1931. The latest, and current president, is Patrick Clement, who became President after the assassination of Terrence Hughes in 2020.

The 2004 United States Executive Branch Elections occurred on November 2nd, 2004. Elections were held for the 7 Cabinet Positions elected by popular vote. The elections took place against the backdrop of the sharp Recession of 2003. Poor polling numbers, largely attributed to the Recession and ongoing investigations into the New Jersey Republican Party, caused President Bloom not to seek re-election.

The left wing Progressive Party made history by nominating its first non-white candidate for President, Interior Secretary James Kent. Kent’s handling of the Interior Department during the recession was widely praised, and he was the most prominent Progressive in the Cabinet. The Republicans looked outside of Washington DC to Washington State, and nominated Governor Tony Wu. Wu was seen as a moderate who could make the tough sell of small government during a recession. The Christian Democrats nominated Senator Thomas Wilbur of Florida. With the Progressives nominating a black man, and the Republicans discredited many feared that the Christian Democrats could break through with conservative views on social questions, but support for strong government programs. However Wilbur would far surpass recent Christian Democratic efforts, the outcome was never truly in doubts. Kent won with the largest margin since 1976, with over a 10 point gap over Wu.

The Vice Presidential ballot told much the same story. The incumbent Republican declined to run, and New York Senator Jean Mulch defeated the Republican and Christian Democratic candidates easily. She did, however, run slightly behind Kent, which caused much mutterings among the political chattering class. Running behind the Presidential ballot is not considered a good sign even for a victorious candidats.

Incumbent Treasury Secretary Sarah Hughes last badly to Mary Kliet, having failed in her efforts to paint over spending by the government as the cause of the Recession, and being even more embroiled in the New Jersey GOP corruption fiasco than President Marsh.

One might think that being the heir of one of New England’s richest families would have put Attorney General W.F. Morton in a bad position. However as Attorney General he had little to do with the economy, having spent the last year launching not very subtle jabs at the other Republican Cabinet measures. And his family’s personal wealth meant he had a source of funds in a year where other Republicans were running dry on cash. Morton would still lose, but only narrowly, to Congressman Todd Marsh of Utah. This narrow loss has made Morton a possible front runner for the GOP in 2008.

The Interior Department, charged with control of the vast American Welfare System, had been the primary source of relief for Americans bereaved by the Recession. Thus when Republican candidate Henry Wentworth bucked Wu’s moderate party line in favor of massive cuts, he was met with a strong backlash from all sides. Combined with popular Commerce and Labor Secretary Paul Schneider’s energetic campaign, and the Republicans were handed a firm rebuke. Schneider received that rarest of political honors: a majority.

As with every election since 1992, nominally Republican but functionally independent Agriculture Secretary Jon Myers was unopposed by any of the major parties. Kyle Hunter of the small radically libertarian Liberty Party would barely scrape 5% of the vote, but overall America would give Jon Myers another hearty pat on the back.

The sudden death of presumptive Progressive nominee Laura Henderson, President of the National Labor Board, two days before the Primary through the race into shock. After numerous court battles surrounding how to count the ballots Maria De Leon of Nevada was nominated, largely on the basis or her name’s similarity to a famous movie star. This got her off to a late start, and De Leon had no actual experience. Meanwhile Tyler Cooper was running far to the left of other Republicans, and picking up votes for it. The Christian Democrats nominated an actual Police Union President,mane would earn their highest percentage in this race. The end result was the only conventional Republican victory in this cycle. Tyler Cooper was instantly launched from obscure Michigan Congressman to possible Presidential candidate in what was surely the most interesting of the year’s elections.
 
Just a simple little thing, based off of polling early in the 1992 election showing Perot in the lead with 39%. In this hypothetical, Perot doesn't drop out of the race, and retains his former support, with the results being in line with the highest polling for Perot, with a uniform national swing in each state according to the difference in the OTL results vs the highest polling (so basically, Clinton gets -18 in each state compared to OTL, Bush does -6, and Perot does +20)

Of course Perot had other issues in his campaign outside of the "dropping out and reentering" thing, so he'd be far from certain to do this well if he did stay in the race. This is therefore on the more optimistic end of what he could have done

1992 ib.png


With the swing applied, Perot absolutely dominates in the electoral college, winning 40 out of 50 states, and winning everything outside of the South and DC. In the South, Perot is able to win Oklahoma, Florida, and Texas, though in this one region, the Republicans also make some gains compared to OTL, winning Louisiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Georgia, which Clinton won OTL

Despite this major change from OTL, the congressional results may not be all that different, since Perot hadn't yet formed the Reform Party (and even when he did, it was practically irrelevant in the 1996 elections). So Perot probably has a Democratic House to work with, as well as a Democratic majority - but not a filibuster proof one - in the Senate

And here's a map of the electoral college showing state margins

Prince Arthur (Arthur Frederick Anthony Michael; 20 December 1911 - 1934), was a member of the Albish Imperial Family. He was the seventh child and youngest son of Emperor Henry and Empress Mary, and a granduncle of the current Albish Monarch, Empress Charlotte. Born during the early days of the First World War, he became known in 1924 when, after a visit of his Egyptian cousins, he declared his intention to convert to Islam at the age of 12, being the second and to this day last child of an Albish monarch to convert to Islam.

Zealous and eager in his new faith, he decided to perform the Hajj in 1926, where, two days after the end of the pilgrimage, he and his retinue disappeared as if from the face of the Earth in the way to Medina. Although searches were made across the Arabic Peninsula, none managed to find him, and he was declared dead in absentia in 1936.

Over forty years later, a dismembered skeleton was found during reforms in a family residence on the suburbs of Afif, on northwestern Najd, and after over two years of investigation and tests, it was discovered the body was of Prince Arthur, having died around the age of 22 from being dismembered with an axe. Following a repatriation process, he was buried in a small mausoleum in the City of the Dead in Cario, near the Hosh al-Basha.
 
No, I haven't been watching The Owl House. Why would you assume such a thing?

Parliamentary elections were held in Poland on 19 January 1947, the first since World War II. From 73.64% of registered voters (Germans exiled and repatriated from territories annexed from Germany after the war, so called Ziemie Odzyskane, were not allowed to vote.) participating in the elections, the winner was Polish People's Party (Polskie Stronnictwo Ludowe, PSL) of Stanisław Mikołajczyk, winning 41.4% of votes. PSL was part of Front of National Unity (Front Jedności Narodowej, FJN), coalition formed by democratic parties (which during the war formed Council of National Unity, a wartime quasi-parliament) which opposed increasing Soviet influence manifesting itself in form of Polish Workers Party (Polska Partia Robotnicza, PPR) led by Bolesław Bierut (himself a Soviet agent). Election campaign was characterised by political violence from PPR, which at the time, together with Władysław Sikorski and his supporters dominated provisional coalition goverment. PPR tried to use its paramilitaries as well as pro-communist goverment security forces, which sometimes led to minor clashes with police trying to keep peace or with soldiers of Polish Armed Forces, just returning from the West.

FJN coalition government, under Stanisław Mikołajczyk as its main goal took rebuilding Poland after the war, as free, independent, strong and safe country. In foreign policy it supported international peace and cooperation of all nations, as well as mantaining good reliations with France, United Kingdom and United States. Diplomatic relations with USSR have been restored, however country has been viewed with distrust by government and most Poles. PPR (and to lesser degree Sikorski) were viewed as traitors and lost most of its political credibility, with socialist voters favoring PPS in future elections. Furthermore Polish People's Army under gen. Rola-Żymierski has been reunited with Armia Krajowa and Polish Armed Forces, after it's officer cadre was stripped of Soviet officers and polonised.

Random one-off I came up with based on Italian distrust towards Nazi Germany in the early years after Hitler came to power
assume no Anglo-German Naval Agreement or invasion of Ethiopia in this TL
 
Do remember that this is an alternate history forum. We do not usually post futuristic things here.
I don't think that there is anything wrong with posting wikiboxes for future timelines here (and there were many good ones posted before) but they obviously need to be far enough into the future to not directly relate to current political issues.
I would personally say 25 years into the future at minimum.
