    Neutral countries like Switzerland and Argentina. Fascist/racist states like Rhodesia that don't care what your religion is provided you're white. Japan and its sphere. India which would be the China to the Japanese USSR. Even the Reich itself- the Nazis didn't count the Kararites as Jews, oddly enough.

    But we're getting off topic.

    How are the economies of the fascist states run?

    All peoples are subordinate to the supreme Yamato race. If they accept the natural order of things, Japan will protect them.

    Does the Middle East have a Jewish population, or have the local states driven them underground?

    I have a question about these stories, how aware are the people being interviewed on the existence of alternate worlds?

    Have the Japanese colonized South India or Colombia as they planned?

    I imagine not.

    Yes on South India. There is a Japanese-backed junta in Gran Colombia.

    I should add that another way to think of the National Socialist States is as a funhouse mirror version of East Germany. A fanatical convert to the conqueror’s ideology, and deeply remorseful of its past (in the NSS’ case, for being a liberal democracy and thus representing almost everything the Nazis opposed).

    Are ISOT states allowed? Because I'm thinking about an entry about a atompunk 50's America that had to adapt to modern world.
    So something similar to crosstime traffic minus the whole masquerade?

    I'm afraid not. But I'd totally read that as a stand-alone oneshot.

    There's a pocket universe called "The Nutshell" that periodically adds new portals to new universes without warning. No one company or organization really controls it.

    Oh so their is like a ‘central nexus’ that the universes are all connected to.

    Here’s something that can go in the anarchy chapter: egoist anarchism. Of course, by being a state entity (and not a sovereign state composed of one individual, like the Pope), it has already “betrayed” the ideals of egoist anarchism. Perhaps it even takes Stirner’s name for such a system: the “Union of Egoists,” but has become a state in all but name.

    So would the State of the Church from earlier be an egoist anarchy, or is that only if the Pope goes nuts like the ones from that Sam O'nella video

    Hello, welcome to nightmare world.
    Yoooooo! TNO ftw!

    So yeah, once again I find myself agreeing with a Nazi about a totalitarian regime. Funny how that keeps happening. This particular iteration of Nazism and the nations it controls almost sounds like a right-wing version of the eastbloc, with the NSSA being Stalin's Russia or Hoxha's Albania and Eaton being the traditional, moderate-by-comparison communist from the more modern USSR or one of the semi-sane eastbloc nations like Hungary.
