I imagine a concordist regime would not be pleasant place to live. Also where can i find this test thread?Perhaps a fair criticism though I'd respond in two points:
1) Much of the world is quite dark and worse off than OTL and the next update will show that.
2) It is, in fact, meant to be more pleasant than is realistic and certainly more idyllic than OTL. A long time ago I explained the theory over on my test thread:
It is a shame, particularly because the heritage of the New Model Army was very cool but I realised I was falling into a trap where everything established, no matter how far back, was permanent. The Flag, Constitution, whole political identity of the FC has been frozen since the 1680s and I realised I needed to have history layer more and have things wax and wane much more than I was doing. The Black 20s are quite the damning splotch on the NMA's record, of course.
