@MaskedPickle Was there interest by French syndicalists in real life to invade and annex neighboring countries, or is that an invention of the story? It is a subject I’m not familiar with.
Considering Henry IX "became an astronaut" (in the same sense as how Admiral Blanco became the first Spanish astronaut with his assassination) ITTL when Neo-Syndicalists blew him up, was anyone else prominent killed in the attack or just his driver and a bodyguard or two? Maybe Anne II being Queen was due to an older sibling being killed along with Henry IX?

Take all of your needed time on it, and good luck with that!
Thank you very much !
So Brittany in this timeline is fascist North Korea, also can you make a wiki list of the Tad Ar Vro of Brittany.

Combined with Manchukuo (in the sense of how Manchukuo was built around a "Manchu nation" even though it was largely Han).
I think of that as more of an independent Manchukuo, that went the North Korea way.
Yes, this timeline is good at turning OTL democracies into authoritarian regimes and OTL authoritarian regimes into democracies.

Indeed it is.
Thank you very much !
@MaskedPickle Was there interest by French syndicalists in real life to invade and annex neighboring countries, or is that an invention of the story? It is a subject I’m not familiar with.
It's an invention, I take advantage of Doriot, who was a communisted who turned Nazi collaborator, to justify it.
Considering Henry IX "became an astronaut" (in the same sense as how Admiral Blanco became the first Spanish astronaut with his assassination) ITTL when Neo-Syndicalists blew him up, was anyone else prominent killed in the attack or just his driver and a bodyguard or two? Maybe Anne II being Queen was due to an older sibling being killed along with Henry IX?
No, Henry IX only had daughters, so Anne was the eldest. Henry IX was, along with his boydguards, the sole victim.
Since Western Europe has been dealt with the brunt and scars of fat-left totalitarianism and war ITTL more instead of Eastern Europe, how has that affected the region?
France and Spain still suffer from the fallout of the war, while Portugal fared better thanks to British help.
Ibuka Mazaru, true emperor of Japan

Country profile - Micronesia
Micronesia is an island country in Oceania, consisting of north New Guinea (south of Australian New Guinea) and various islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Established in the late 19th Century thanks to German expansionism and British disinterest in these areas, German New Guinea saw its position strengthened after Germany was awarded New Caledonia after the Treaty of Amiens : however, as opposed to Africa, German New Guinea never became a milestone for the German colonial office, imposing protectorates and exploiting the resources of the area, mostly mining for Kaiser Wilhelm’s land, phosphate in Nauru and fishing, in cooperation with Australia, Britain and Indonesia (and before that, the Dutch government in exile).

The Greater Game changed the importance of the German archipelago, as the Germans began plans to withdraw from Africa and the region became concerned by Indonesian irredentism and Japanese saber-rattling in the 1960s ; as Japanese and Indonesian troops concentrated in Irian Jaya, the German military presence in Kaiser Wilhelm’s land increased tenfold and a secret alliance was signed with Australia in 1962. These preparations became handy during the Indonesian Civil War (1965-1972) : fighting alongside the Australians in New Guinea and the Philippines in the Celebes, the Germans were able to conquer the northwestern part of New Guinea (1969) and the Moluccas (1970). These acquisitions were confirmed to German New Guinea by a plebiscite and the World Council in 1975, increasing by a lot the population and economy of the colony, and thus the interest of the German government, that had already decided to evacuate the whole population of Nauru to make way to mining exploitations.

The Dohnanyi government began the infamous Civilization Campaign in northern New Guinea (1977-1981), increasing funds for religious missions in areas of public education, vaccination, health and housing, while forcibly relocating secluded tribes, forcing them to abandon their occasional cannibal customs, a policy aimed at making New Guinea “a modern Christian country” and to prepare independence by the year 2000. Japanese intelligence in the area remained low thanks to German repression, except for a much publicized bomb attack in the Berlin Museum of Ethnology in 1985.

After the dissolution of the Sphere of Co-Prosperity by 1987, German New Guinea became what it was already : a non-profitable colony located too far away from Europe. A referendum in 1989 won a majority for independence and resulted in a seven-year-plan to prepare such a change. The future Republic of Micronesia however was doomed from the start : islamists in the Moluccas and local leaders in Bougainville pushed for an independence of their own and the capital of Simpsonhafen was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1994, forcing the administration to relocate to Herbertshöhe.

On 1 January 1996, Micronesia became independent, consisting of Kaiser Wilhelm’s Land (north New Guinea), the Moluccas, the Bismarck Archipelago, Buka Island, Bougainville Island, Palau, the Caroline Islands, the Northern Marianas and the Marshall Islands (Nauru was only given to Micronesia in 1999, after the empty island was considered entirely depleted of resources). Michael Somare, a New Guinean educated in Germany, became the country’s first president and would remain so until 2016, keeping Micronesia in the German sphere and ruling as a virtual dictator.

Considered an “artificial nation”, Micronesia has been plagued by separatist movements since independence, in the Moluccas (resulting in the assassination of the Prime Minister in 2002 and a German military intervention), in Bougainville (1997, 2011, resulting in a unsuccessful petition to the World Council in 2015), from the displaced Nauruan population in 2001, riots against German influence and military in 2009, 2011, 2019 and natural disasters, mostly earthquakes, resulting in the destruction of Herbertshöhe in 2015 and various disasters in 2019. In a gesture towards the opposition, Somare withdrew from power in 2016, only to be replaced by Prime Minister Julius Chan, who became a German stooge.

Political situation
Uniting Kaiser Wilhelm’s Land, the Moluccas, the Bismarck Archipelago, Buka Island, Bougainville Island, Palau, Nauru, the Caroline Islands, the Northern Marians and the Marshall Islands, Micronesia is a federal parliamentary constitutional republic, with a Constitution heavily modeled on Germany. Like the Kaiser, the President only holds a ceremonial role, even if under Michael Somare’s era (1996-2016), the role was unofficially much more powerful. The Prime Minister holds executive power and is dependent on the National Parliament, who also elects the President. Due to the vastness of the island country, local governors, traditional chieftains and judiciary courts are quite powerful and independent ; the partial destruction of Herbertshöhe in 2015 by an earthquake led to a much more decentralized government, local democracy being enabled to effective Internetz communications from an island to another.

The current President of the Republic is Arnold Palacios, having been elected by the National Parliament on 2 March 2021 : a former Governor of the Northern Mariana Islands for the People’s Progress Party (big tent), he was handpicked by the Prime Minister to mark the end of the Somare era, who had died the week before. The current Prime Minister is Julius Chan, from the People’s Progress Party, who was elected Prime Minister on 9 June 2016 ; he has been re-elected in 2020. Originary from New Mecklenburg, Chan served as Prime Minister from 2002 to 2009, first as an ally of Somare before stepping down after the military had opened fire on protesters. Becoming leader of the opposition, he would return to the Prime ministerial office after Somare retired from politics : he has since reneged on his prior anti-German statements, becoming a strong German ally in the Oceanic sphere.

Social situation, population
With more than a thousand cultures and even more islands, the 22-million population of Micronesia is very scattered, with the density of population varying heavily from an island to another : most of the population is concentrated in the Moluccas, while city-dwelling remains low due to the hazards of earthquakes and volcanic activity. Due to the evident lack of interest from the German government, infrastructures and investments remained low. As a result, most of the education, sanitary and businesses are held by German and Australian NGOs, mostly private religious missionary societies and the majority of the Micronesian population remains below the poverty line. As the population is young and still growing, many Micronesians migrate to Germany, Australia, the Philippines and Indonesia.

Separatist movements is also high in Micronesia, mostly in the Moluccas and Bougainville, who consider themselves too alien to New Guinea proper to accept direct rule from Herbertshöhe. Local revolts, for both independence and against German influence, have been steadily repressed by the government and the local German force, resulting in the World Council voicing its “growing concern” for the situation in Micronesia. However, a 2015 petition from Bougainville addressed at the international organization was left without an official response.

In spite of its very rich deposits (gold, copper, petroleum gas), Micronesia has yet to benefit from it ; the whole exploitation is insured by German and Australian companies after concessions contracts were negotiated during the road to independence. As no preparations were made to prepare Micronesia to ensure its own finances, most of the economy is based on subsistence agriculture, fishing and manufacturing, with tourism providing a safe source of income ; most of the services are held by German conglomerates and the cost of importation tend to make the prices very high for the average Micronesian.

Even if Micronesia disposes of its own military force, focused at law and order, fighting piracy and drug carcels and quelling down dissent, the German Armed Forces remain present in the area, maintaining bases in Kaiser Wilhelm’s Land for the Ground Forces, an aviation base in the Moluccas and Saipan being the main base to the Kriegsmarine Pacific Fleet. This continued German military presence helped the Micronesian government to repress revolts, it has also been a bone of contention for the local opposition, pointing at it as evidence of Micronesia being an artificial country and a German lackey.

Is is estimated that more than one thousand cultural groups exist in Micronesia : the country is an ethnologist’s dream and the lack of German settling in the area allowed folk traditions to remain, save from cannibal tribes that were relocated and depleted during the Civilization Campaign. Tourism is the nation’s first source of income (even if a popular German saying is that no one needs to go to Micronesia but rather to the Ethnology Museum in Berlin) as the country offers a variety of landscapes. However, this variety of cultures is the source of separatist movement in the region : only the flag of the bird-of-paradise and the football and rugby teams provide some sense to the unity. Even New Guinean German (the local German dialect) is vastly different from one island to the other.

Even if the humans rights aftermath of the Civilization Campaign remains dire, the worst toll inflicted by German colonialism can be seen in the environment : agricultural, mining and gas oil exploitation remains high and large tracts of land have seen their ecosystem totally destroyed. The exploitation of Nauru, whose entire population forcibly relocated and was tirelessly mined for phosphore for thirty years until there was nothing left, became a cause célèbre for environmentalists throughout the world.
Country profile - Fiji
Fiji is an island country in Oceania, located about 1,100 nautical miles north-northeast of New Zealand.

Colonized by the British in 1874, Fiji were of relative importance for the British Empire, maintaining the native Melanesian population and society while bringing indentured labourers from India to exploit the sugarcane fields. Starting after the World War, Fiji began to make its first moves towards self-governance but the new context of the Greater Game meant that the archipelago took a new strategic importance to Great Britain, standing in the Pacific against the Sphere of Co-Prosperity. Even if Indo-Fijians had not contact with their homeland since the 19th Century and outnumbered native Fijians, the British, during a constitutional conference in London in 1965, began to tilt the balance towards ethnic Fijians, who feared for their lands and resources and were okay for continuing with British presence. The Indo-Fijians, who were pushing for immediate self-governance, were left frustrated and felt as victims of racism, being pointed by the British as a “Bharatavarshan fifth column”.

The situation was further exacerbated by two factors : radical Indo-Fijians started a guerilla, being funded by Bharatavarshans and Japanese, in 1970, that remained of low intensity but still led to the assassination of moderate leader Kamisese Mara in 1977. On the other hand, American objectivist-minded millionaires began to see Fiji’s isolation and prosperity as the perfect site to implement an objectivist utopia : starting in 1972, the Minerva Initiative led to massive investments in the archipelago, funding services, housing and purchasing private islands to implement their agenda. The massive influx of money benefitted primarily to the Natives while the uncontrolled rise of the cost of living impacted the urban Indo-Fijians, further causing a rift between the two communities. After a bloody hostage situation in 1982, as millionaires were beginning to move their residence to Fiji, the British, under high pressure, forced the two communities to an agreement over independence for 1990 and a guarantee of equality inscribed in the Constitution, with each inhabitant of Fiji being granted a right to vote, leading to a guerilla ceasefire. To placate the most radical elements, in 1987, a law offering subsidies for the Indo-Fijians that wished to return to their homeland was adopted, but it had only a limited impact, due to their lack of connection to India, the chronic instability of Bharatavarsha during these years resulting in the program’s abolition in 1992.

When Fiji became independent on 1 January 1990, the Japanese Empire had crumbled, erasing all strategic importance for the British but the Minerva Initiative had secured the economic future of the new country, allowing them to be prosperous, but the natives and Indo-Fijians were now irreconcilable communities, leading to massive race riots during the 1995 and 1996 general elections, leading Australia to send a peacekeeping force in 1997.

In 2000, ultranationalist ethnic Fijian businessman George Speight led a military coup. Supported by the objectivist millionaires and the military, the Speight regime persecuted perceived “Indo-Fijian infiltration”, enforcing segregation, forbidding Indo-Fijians to hold certain jobs or to attend their cults. Taking advantage of a minor crime committed by an Indo-Fijian youth gang, the Speight government launched a full-scale ethnic cleansing of the community : the Australian peacekeeping force was slaughetered in a surprise assault by the Fijian military, which then concentrated its efforts against the Indo-Fijian community, along with ethnic Fijian paramilitary groups ; the amounts of killings, rapes and looting against Indo-Fijians was overwhelming, wiping out half of the community, up to 220,000 people ; Australia finally got the approval from the World Council to send an intervention force that managed to overthrow Speight by August, but the damage had been already done. The 2005 Fijian massacres are now branded as a genocide by the Australian government.

After an Australian-led military administration that lasted for a year, a new Constitution was adopted in 2006, guaranteeing freedom of cult and forbidding discrimination based on race. The aftershock left the wounded country in tatters, allowing the Objectivists to push further their agenda in Fiji : after a failed nationalist coup in 2009, an Objectivist government was elected in 2014, leading to further reforms and, eventually, to the proclamation of a Fijian Republic on 8 October 2019, leaving the Commonwealth altogether.

Political situation
Since the adoption of its Constitution in 2019, Fiji is an unitary libertarian parliamentary republic, having abandoned the status of dominion inside the Commonwealth. Nevertheless inspired by the Westminster System, Fijian politics are focused on the unicameral Parliament, with the government being responsible towards it and the president occupying a ceremonial role. The Constitution guarantees “the equality of everyone regarding the state” and guarantees all freedoms; in a sidenote to try to heal the rift of the 2005 massacres, it is forbidden to discriminate anyone based on his ethnic origin, to launch parties representing only an ethnic group but also to refer to the massacres as a genocide.

The current President, having succeeded the Governor-General as head of state, is Biman Prasad, who was Prime Minister from his election on 17 September 2014 to the proclamation of the republic on 8 October 2019. An Indo-Fijian economist and former college professor, Prasad returned from his work in Australia to pursue a political career in order to “further heal the nation”, forming a large coalition under the Fijian Objectivist League, an objectivist movement heavily funded by the Minerva Initiative. For Prasad, the proclamation of the republic was needed to help rebuild the country. He was succeeded as Prime Minister by Tupou Draunidalo, an ethnic Fijian lawyer, who was serving as Minister of the Interior un the Prasad administration ; she has served as Prime Minister ever since and also comes for the Fijian Objectivist League.

Social situation, population
British colonial policy and ethnic cleansing define the Fijian population to this day. The indigenous population, mostly of Melanesian origin, forms now the majority and owns most of the land, business and political ownership, becoming quite wealthy in an ever densely populated 300-island archipelago, with 87% living in the two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. On the contrary, the Indo-Fijian community was denied the opportunity to ride upon the Minerva Initiative’s cornucopia, fell below thé poverty line and was reduced by half by the Massacres and has to choose between poverty and emigration. Fiji also counts a growing Chinese population, devoted to labor and a very small percentage of objectivist millionaires, mostly American, who decided to take Fijian citizenship.

Fiji, in spite of its small population, enjoys one of the highest standards of living in Oceania, besides Australia and Aotearoa, with guaranteed personal freedoms and access to infrastructure, education, médical care and housing : but with an ever-inflating currency, these resources are getting more and more expansive, corruption is everywhere and the inequality gap widens even more.

Mostly focused on sugarcane exploitation during the early 20th century, Fiji nowadays is among the most developed economies among the Pacific Islands, relying on importation for its subsistence and benefitting from gold, silver, copper and petroleum deposits. A tax haven since its independence in 1990, with its currency, the Fijian dollar, being indexed on the American one, Fiji successfully transitioned to a service economy, offering large tax loopholes to companies that would accept to install offices in Fiji. To this day, the capital of Fiji, Suva, holds the record for the number of businesses domiciled there, mostly in finance and Internetz, is among the most expansive (in terms of housing and food prizes) in the world.

The reason for this prosperity in the Minerva Initiative, an Objectivist project created in 1972 by American businessmen in response to the McGovern administration to enforce an objectivist independent area in the Pacific : first considered for the Minerva Reefs in the Tonga Islands, the Minerva Initiative saw billions invested in the Fiji archipelago, encouraging the emergence of a strong service economy and petitioned the British authorities for the abolition of taxes, so as to attract more investors. After the upheavals of the Speight regime, the businessmen already settled in Fiji managed to influence local politics, resulting in the election of Biman Prasad and the implementation of a far-reaching objectivist agenda, resulting in the decriminalization of abortion, drugs, gun control and prostitution and providing huge blank checks for entrepreneurs who would settle in the archipelago. Nevertheless, members of the Minerva Initiative do not mingle with the Fijian population, having purchased various islands, all heavily guarded, to host their villas : according to rumour, recluse and very discreet inhabitants of the Fiji count Jeff Yass, Jeffrey Epstein and Jimmy Wales.

The Fijian Army, that was one of the smallest in the world, was officially abolished after the Australian intervention in 2005, as one of the main perpetrators of the Indo-Fijian Massacres ; since, a small Australian force assures the territorial defense of the archipelago while law enforcement is assured by the Fijian police. Nevertheless, gun control is now non existent and various private militias exist, either maintained by business, wealthy Fijians and recluse millionaires.


Thanks to its gorgeous landscapes and amenable climate (but also its absence of taxes), Fiji gets most of its revenue from tourism, even more as China and Australia became wealthier. Yet the conscious tourist will see that Fiji hasn’t healed yet from the 2005 massacres : if peaceful today, the native and Indian communities are remaining separate, not mixing in any way, the Indo-Fijians being deprived of any recognition of a genocide and electing to migrate to Australia or Britain. Rugby, the national sport, is the only thing giving unity to the archipelago. The tourist would also see heavily guarded private islands and villas, inhabited by wealthy and objectivist foreigners, and fellow visitors being drawn to Fiji’s very lax laws on drugs and prostitution.
With that in mind, what became of Akio Morita, Li Ka-shing, Matsushita Masaharu, Komai Kenichiro, Teiichi Suzuki, and Nagano Shigeto ITTL with how powerful Ibuka became in TTL's Japan for people to deem him "Japan's true emperor" (and what did he do to get such an esteemed position)?
Ibuka has this title due to having the most successful zaibatsu, but also as a sidenote to TNO and his nefarious path... These businessmen have had their own successes.
Did Mohammad Ali become a hotep instead of joining the nation of islam?
Yeah, Neo-Kemitism has the same appeal the Nation of Islam has.
I don't think a state anchored on roughly one quarter of New Guinea would be called Micronesia.

Maybe Oceania would be a more fitting name for the country, on that note?

Potentially. Maybe Bismarck for the sea and archipelago?
The name of the country gave me problems : Oceania designates the continent, New Guinea only a portion of the country and Bismarck sounded too colonialist. The geographic area is named Micronesia, so it is so.
These businessmen have had their own successes.
Well, Nagano and Suzuki were military officers IOTL while Li Ka-shing is Chinese (yes, he's still alive IOTL), so there's that.
Yeah, Neo-Kemitism has the same appeal the Nation of Islam has.
How big is it a religion ITTL in number of total followers/believers here?
Nevertheless, members of the Minerva Initiative do not mingle with the Fijian population, having purchased various islands, all heavily guarded, to host their villas : according to rumour, recluse and very discreet inhabitants of the Fiji count Jeff Yass, Jeffrey Epstein and Jimmy Wales.
Any other prominent supposed inhabitants of Fiji? Maybe Elizabeth Holmes could be one of them here?
What happened to George Speight and the other leaders of the genocidaires after they were stopped? Tried in court by the Australians?

Neo-Kemitism is the official cult in Liberia and Azania, and it is well practiced in Kongo and Mali. So let me think of a figure.
Elizabeth Holmes could be a resident, I think she would prefer Costa Rica.
What happened to George Speight and the other leaders of the genocidaires after they were stopped? Tried in court by the Australians?
The Australians judged them in cooperation with the World Council, fearing they would be protected in Fiji.
Anything on Anne’s sisters and any claims to fame or controversies they have ITTL?

Any particular reason she immigrated to Germany ITTL and when did she do so ITTL?
They are just regular British royals.
My mistake ! I always believe Earhart was German. Is it now corrected.
Country profile - Angola
Angola is a country in southern Africa, bordered by Kalahari to the south, Kongo and Kasai to the north, Katanga and Rhodesia to the east and the Atlantic Ocean to the west.

Settled by the Portuguese since the 16th century, Angola would take its modern borders by the early 20th century under the terms of the Conference of Berlin but saw its fortunes change forever in May 1926, as Portugal was itself swept by a Syndicalist revolution. Along with Mozambique, Angola was quickly invaded by German troops from neighbouring Kongo and Southwest Africa, under the official pretense of “protecting Portuguese settlers”. In fact, Angola became overnight a German colony and would remain so until its independence.

As compared to earlier spoils of war gained in Africa by Germany, Angola wasn’t much changed, as the prospect of a restitution to Portugal remained possible until the Greater Game : Portuguese remained the vernacular and administrative language along with German, and although the colonial capital was removed from Luanda to Benguela, Germans made efforts to improve the infrastructure, popular education and evangelization. The former provinces of Cabinda and Zaire (northwest), rich in oil, timber and coffee, were transferred to neighboring Kongo and Angola remained a second tier of the German colonial empire, with occasional repression from revolting tribes, such as the nomadic Mucubal people. Due to the development of Luanda and Benguela, German rule was seen by urban natives as an improvement from the Portuguese era, and Angola was a steadfast contributor to the war effort during the World War and later the Kongo War. Due to the discovery of offshore oil in the 1950s and the prosperity of iron and diamond mining in the colony, Germany refused to give back Angola to Portugal after the World War and further increased investments in the area, using a strategy of trickle-down economics to rally the Angolans and systematically targeting would-be rebels. Due to the upheaval of the Kongo War, Angola became independent on 1 September 1970 and remained a member of the Reichspakt ever since.

As one of the few German allies remaining in the area after decolonization, Angola, under its first President Holden Roberto, conducted an aggressive war claiming Cabinda against Kongo (1974-1975) : Angola, without firm German support, was defeated and remained in the status quo. The resulting popular backlash against pro-German and conservative Roberto led to the election of pro-Kongolese and Pan-Africanist poet Viriato da Cruz as President in 1975 : pro-German General Jonas Sawimbi ousted him in a military coup the following year.

In 1977, after barely a year in power, Sawimbi had to defeat a coup attempt by Pan-Africanist radical Nito Alves, resulting in a civil war that lasted until 1987 : Sawimbi was victorious thanks to the unconditional German support, furthered by a thriving Angolan economy and a need for Reichspakt positions due to the South African Civil War. An attempt in 1991 for multipartism led to Sawimbi having to deal with an opposition-led parliament in 1992, an impeachment attempt in 1994 and a self-coup and a suspension of the Constitution in 1995 ; the latter would only be re-established in 2002, under German pressure. Angola has become one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa, the country soldiers on as the beacon of the struggle against Neo-Kemitism and the military operations against Azania, and Sawimbi, bedridden since an assassination attempt in 2010, is considered busy at preparing his succession.

Political situation
The current Constitution, adopted in 1991 and restored on 22 February 2002, makes Angola an unitary presidential constitutional republic : the president of the republic is the head of state and government and is elected to a seven-year term by popular vote ; the legislative power is held by the unicameral National Assembly and the judiciary is independent from all powers. That is only on paper : in fact, Angola remains a military dictatorship, with all powers vested on the President and judges, civil servants, ministers and governors gravitating towards him and major companies in Berlin. The National Assembly is powerless and the opposition was left decapitated by the Civil War and repression : a true democratic period only happened from 1992 to 1995 and the 1991 Constitution has been bereft of its content, with so called opposition parties being kept on a tight leash by the government.

The current President is Jonas Sawimbi, turning 89 in 2023 and, having been in power since 22 February 1976, is the longest-ruling non-royal head of state in the world. Born to an Ovimbundu family, educated in Germany as a doctor, being among the first dark-skinned individuals to achieve a Ph. D. in Germany, he served as minister of Defense in the Roberto and da Cruz governments before seizing power in a military coup in 1976, supported by Berlin who saw him as a bulwark against Pan-Africanism and anarchist rabble. Re-elected in 1981, 1986, 1991, 1998, 2005, 2012 and 2019, Sawimbi has survived a civil war (1977-1987), one attempted coup (1977), an impeachment attempt (1994) and countless assassination attempts, the last one, in 2010, leaving him bedridden. In 2022, rumours abounded about his possible demise but the leader of UNITA (conservative) is still in power and has no intention to leave, considering himself as the main protector of Angola and remains a personal friend to the Kaiser and the main political and economic leaders of Europe. Due to his age, a succession struggle is said to be ongoing in Angola : current Vice President Isaias Sumakuwa is already old and so are the generals and other members of the camarilla that followed Sawimbi ever since.

Social situation, population
With 32 million people, Angola benefitted from real investments by Germany during the 1950s and 1960s and later the economic boom that followed the Angolan Civil War : split between the Ovimbundu, Ambundu and other Bantu populations, Angola has ceased to be an immigrant country, instead welcoming South African refugees, an ever growing European expatriate community, Kongolese immigrants and even Chinese immigrants ; in this context, Luanda has become an African metropolis, one of the most populated cities of Southern Africa, with all modernity that could be afforded in Africa. Almost all of the Angolan population is literate and vaccinated against major diseases. That is for the average point of view about the “Angolan miracle”, making it the prime financial market in Africa.

In fact, many newcomers in the coastal cities don’t have enough to afford a living and have to turn to difficult labour, either in the mining and oil industry : if the universities, schools, hospitals and facilities in Luanda and Benguela are renowned throughout Africa, it only benefits to a small elite, all gravitating beneath the Sawimbi regime or Germany, that can afford a flat in Berlin or a villa in the outskirts of Luanda. The situation in the Angolan interior is heavily censored but considered to be dire and under Sawimbi, all forms of political dissent are repressed, or Neo-Kemitism is heavily repressed, with the benediction of the government, the ever-present Catholic Church (abortion and homosexuality is still outlawed in Angola and contraception is very difficult to obtain).

Diamonds, oil, gold, copper, wildlife, forestry, bananas, coffee… The soil of Angola is very rich : it encouraged the Germans to invest in their colony and to keep it in their sphere and later, the economic recovery that followed the Civil War was concomitant to the world recovery after the 1983 Krach, allowing demand to be always high for Angolan oil drilled offshore ; the loss of the South African market allowed local diamonds and gold to be a fixture of the luxury market. Thanks to these developments, the economic growth of Angola remained in the double digits for forty years and counting and thanks to Sawimbi’s friends in Berlin, the Angolan cornucopia actually benefitted to the country, allowing it to be one of the wealthiest in Africa and for Luanda and Benguela to be on the level of European cities, experiencing an uninterrupted growth. Nevertheless, many consider that this wealth has only widened the gap between the westernized city-dwellers, as compared to an ever poorer rural population, which has left agriculture for mining labor or oil drilling, and fear that Angola is on the brink of experiencing hyperinflation and the effects of the Dutch disease, as the Sawimbi government failed to invest in other economic sectors.

Being the backbone of Sawimbi’s regime, further forged by the Civil War, the Angolan Army remains extremely powerful nowadays, having control over the extraction of minerals and national security : even if relations with Kongo are now appeased, Angola is a major supplying point for the coalition fighting Azania in Kalahari and Rhodesia, Luanda serving as a major harbour for international help. As such, Angola retains a state-of-the-art preparedness, with compulsory military service, officers trained in Germany and brand new equipment directly imported from Europe. The Angolan Army has been accused of being massively corrupted due to the cornucopia of natural resources and the aging of its highest-ranking officers becomes an issue, as Sawimbi’s succession remains a hot issue. Germany maintains three permanent military bases in Luanda, Namibe and Saurimo, Angola remaining a member of the Reichspakt.

A rare example of a truly African bilingual country (German being reserved for diplomacy, education and administrative purposes, Portuguese for local administration and everyday life, a mixed and strange German-Portuguese pidgin for everyday life), Angola, due to censorship and repression, failed to develop a cultural life on its own : products from Babelsberg are only seen in cinemas and local authors, such as poet Agostinho Neto, were jailed due to their political thoughts. The local fauna and ecosystem, once said to be exuberant, are now increasingly abandoned by locals, more interested in stable paychecks from oil shores and mines, and the country remains a fixture of Europeans, Americans and Asians seeking a thrill during safaris… Anyway, the prizes in Luanda and Benguela, where everything is imported, remain high, and the weight of the Catholic and Protestant churches remains high in society, so the average tourist has to behave.
