    It stands for Freedom Party. Santorum is relatively right-wing but not quite far-right within his party

    I think I'll make infoboxes for the parties tbh. This TL is supposed to be Patagonia-centered but doing a little US worldbuilding can't hurt

    Yep

    South Kenya is part of the British Commonwealth and North Kenya is basically a nazbol dictatorship a la North Korea

    I haven't really decided yet, but North Kenya is probably considered a rogue state by most ITTL. They probably have a few allies though, probably Russia if anyone, as Russia is a fascist(ish) dictatorship. Not sure about who else though

    That isn’t Netanyahu. That is Senator Mileikowaky, a fictional character made by @Goweegie2

    It actually is Netanyahu, he's just American and named Benjamin Mileikowsky ITTL because there's no Israel ITTL. Here's an infobox I made about him last night and was gonna post today anyway

    I have so many questions-
    1. Why is there no Israel? What is the Middle East like?
    2. What’s Patagonian cuisine like?
    3. What’s Europe like?
    4. Is Brazil an Empire like it was in the ‘original’ timeline

    I hate to point this out because I feel it's like counting grains of dust, but Punta Arenas is translated as Sands Point, not Sandy Point, Sand's Point nor Sands' Point.

    "Punta Arenas (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpunta aˈɾenas]; historically Sandy Point in English)"

    "The name Sandy Point derives from the voyage of John Narborough in 1669-1671"

    "The name Punta Arenas was derived from the Spanish term Punta Arenosa, a literal translation of the English name "Sandy Point""

    Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punta_Arenas

    There's no Israel because there was no Holocaust, so Zionism didn't take off as much as it did IOTL. There's a decent Jewish population in Palestine though, and they enjoy full equal rights

    It's rather different. Of course there's no Israel, but there's also no Saudi Arabia, with Rashidi Arabia and the Hashemite Kingdom of Hejaz replacing it. There's also an independent Kurdistan, and a number of border differences between the various countries to the point it doesn't really resemble OTL

    Probably a mix between OTL Welsh cuisine and OTL southern Argentine cuisine, albeit with less influence from northern Argentine cuisine, although Argentine cuisine is likely semi-popular due to Argentine immigration. There's also likely some Scottish influence in the cuisine

    Europe is quite a bit different, it would be easier if you specified which specific countries you'd like to know about

    Yes, it's an empire under the Orléans-Braganza dynasty, although the monarchy only holds symbolic power in the present day. Also Brazil has never had a successful coup ITTL and has very strong democratic institutions, so it's basically the most stable South American country along with Patagonia

    Did somebody say Hashemite Kingdom of Hejaz?!!!! I love that. This makes me very happy.
    I don't know why, I just REALLY like the kingdom of Hejaz (probably mainly because I like the borders)

    Also, I would imagine a considerable amount of American influence in modern Patagonian cuisine if US fast food is even nearly as big a thing as OTL, though so far, I don't know what you have in mind.
