Dunno why, but gives me Elbonia vibes
 
I've made a bunch of flags for all the different warlords in my scenario so I'm just gonna occasionally post one of them every now and then.

The reign of Johannes Lindbergh came quickly and was short lived but the damage it caused to Sweden was immense. The nation had already faced insurrections, a succession crisis over the PM, and rampant political infighting. Things went from bad to worse when the already far-right hardliners that were now in control had an internal coup, leading to Johannes Lindbergh and Leo Edlund taking control of Sweden. A man with a tenuous grasp on reality and a devote neo-nazi respectively, they would bring unheard of death and devastation to Sweden in their short reign. Soon, however, their reign would be cut short by a joint UN-NATO-EU invasion and King Gustaf XVI overthrowing their government and taking the Stockholm region. This would lead to the rest of Sweden collapsing into several states which overtime would eventually splinter off into numerous warlord states and groups. These posts are about these warlords.

In the northernmost parts of Sweden, the Anti-Leftist Military Guard of Muonio resides. They originally were military units stationed in the north during the insurrections. The forces were encircled in the northernmost parts of Sweden and was constantly being attacked with next to no support from the rest of the Armed Forces. However, they would survive and connect back with the main forces. They would come back home as heros with them finally get the break that they deserved. However, that respite would be short lived as they would soon be needed again to quell the Socialist insurrections again. When Sweden collapsed the Insurrection rose up again, so yet again, they would be forced to evacuate to the northernmost parts of Sweden to hunker down.

While they fought to reunite Sweden a general named Einar Höxter was gaining support and power. A growing base of Reactionaries and fierce Anti-Communists was formed in response to the hell that they had to endure because of the Socialist insurrections. Soon Einar had enough power to be able to overthrow the military guard and take power for himself. Eventually, after a few years, Sweden would be reunited under his control and the National Bulwark State of Sweden was formed. Under Einar Höxter's rule Sweden would become an ultra-reactionary military dictatorship. Anything modern or progressive would be deemed "Degenerate and a Gateway to Socialism" and the government would try it's hardest to stamp it out. Anything or anyone even vaguely left-wing would be called Communist and would be harshly and often violently quelled.

Sorry for the wall of text but I wanted to really explain it.
 
I ended up making the Lovecraft TL!
"Even with the benefit of hindsight the life and times of Howard Lovecraft are a study in contrasts. To his enemies the thirtieth president was a veritable king in yellow, a godless tyrant out to drown the nation's proud heritage of faith and rugged individualism under a tide of socialism. To his friends and supporters he was always affectionately known as the Old Man, whose bracingly clear eyed materialism was softened by a keen awareness of the unseen broader forces at play in poverty and other social ills and by a consistent willingness to offer firm support and sound advice. Whatever our picture of the man it is beyond dispute that he shaped the century, bringing the American people through the ravages of the Depression and the War of Civilization and making the critical early moves that would come to define the US posture in the Strange Aeon. Whether his contributions were for good or ill I leave to the reader."

Excerpt from Thomas Ligotti's The Conspiracy Against the Human Race: The Lovecraft Presidency in Retrospect, considered the most thorough historical analysis to date in light of newly declassified Comintern documents.

Hi all! Some of you may have seen that I've been puzzling over the concept of a Lovecraft presidency here and there over the last few days, so I decided to finally give it a shot! I've decided to structure the thing as a Timeline In A Week, with this little teaser followed by six updates delivered daily covering most of the twentieth century. I've updated the two general lore posts in the other threads and I'll be linking them below, and of course questions between updates are more than welcome!

Completely original redesign of Ghana's flag. The pattern is inspired by Kente cloth, a Ghanaian textile, the colors have the same meaning as the existing flag, and the chevron represents progress.
 
Figure I'd upload this here! Working on a map series about a rule of cool TL that focuses heavily on a Soviet Hawaii.

Here's the flag of the Hawaiian Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic! Or the HASSR for short!

Neither Russian nor Hawaiian are my native languages, and Cyrillifying Hawaiian was quite the chore! But the top should simply read, in Russian "Hawaiian ASSR" and the bottom should read the same, just in Hawaiian proper.

I'd be interested in seeing exactly what a Cyrillic Hawaiian alphabet looks like
