    If there is an AH forum on GURPS Shikaku-Mon's Tapestry like this one, would they consider OTL a Virginiawank?

    Hi Tom. Pardon, but I'm not sure what you mean by Virginiawank. Please elaborate, if you would? :confused:

    In Shikaku-Mon, Britain only established a small colony at Virginia. In the present day, Britain has been mostly destroyed in a war with totalitarian Sweden, and Virginia is the last remnant of Anglo-culture.
    In OTL, the British colonies became the world hegemon, the most powerful nation the world has ever seen.
    I am asking if OTL would meet the standards of a "wank" from the point of view of Shikaku-Mon.

    Maybe they'd be too busy considering OTL as a democracywank.

    It's absolutely a Japan and Sweden-screw, by Shikaku-Mon standards.

    I'd certainly see it as an Anglowank by those standards.

    From Shikaku-Mon's perspective OTL is an unbelievable Anglowank. In Shikaku-Mon the UK is a bombed out wasteland and Virginia is in a siege mentality with no possible claim to great power status.
