    I have two questions:
    1. What happened to Mexico?
    2. Who is leading the US during all of this?

    A militant Mexico threatens war but the US, remembering the Veracruz Telegram and Mexico’s Pro-German leanings, invades Mexico in mid-1943.

    On the presidents, it bounces between Democrats and Republicans. I’ll have to research and expand upon this later.

    The four possible leaders for the US at the start of Führerreich are Huey Long, Alf Landon, John Nance Garner, and Quentin Roosevelt. I hope that helps. :)

    Yesterday I tried another game as the CSA, the fastest I could win the war was early 1940, and that's with the Canada intervention disabled. By then France had already been overrun by Germany so I couldn't activate the decision to join the Internationale :(

    Liking it, though Mussolini is supposed to be dead in Führerreich, AFAIK.

    I have my own headcanon scenario for the mod as well.

    The Second Great War is between between the Stahlpak, the Imperial Protection Alliance, and Mexico on one side and the Entente with the US on the other. The Soviet-led Internationale attacks the Entente and the Far Eastern Republic which is supported by Japan and thus the Imperial Protection Alliance.

    After the war, the Cold War starts between the British bloc (the Imperial Federation, Portugal, Greece, Yugoslavia, Slovakia, Albania, Arabia, Mesopotamia, Persia, Japan, Nationalist China, Far Eastern Republic, Siam, Tibet, Colombia), the German bloc (Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary, Poland, Sweden, France, Italy, North African countries, Mexico, Central America, Bolivia, Turkey) and the Soviet bloc (the Soviet Union, Spain, Norway, Transcaucasia, Left wing China, Mongolia, Argentina, Chile).

    EDIT: I also have some outlines for the present day. All I know for now is that the Imperial Federation will collapse. And hard. So do Germany and Mexico, and the USA (or some kind of America) is restored.

    Oh Mussolini is dead? Well then Italo Balbo can lead the Free Italians in Libya then. He’s more competent anyway.

    Your story seems interesting though!

    I think that Mussolini died during socialist protests which occured at the end of or shortly after teh First Great War. Balbo does make more sense since he's the hero who pacified Libya for Italy or something like that.

    Thanks. I also have something much more specific for Kaiserreich, since that mod is obviously itself more developed.

    The new update makes it fun playing as the feds in the civil war.I always give ground on east,letting the AUS and CSA fight each other will gaining strength in the west(assuming no PSA). I still have a hard time as winning with Macarthur because of said PSA. Here's hoping that the developers would weaken The PSA,the feds are already fighting a 4 side war, they dont need to be weaken further...

    Working on a spreadsheet of *major navies in KR as of 1936

    wondering where the fuck did Britain get the money to build a dozen G3s and a quart of N3s

    *Navies that have some influence on the global stage or are otherwise noteworthy also not doing destroyers because my sanity is stretched enough as is

    Apparently in the interim period between Peace with Honour and the British Revolution, the British government engaged itself in a "Dreadnought Race" with the German Empire, building ships to the point of financial ruin. Kinda hand-wavey but that is the nature of Kaiserriech.

    The Feds should be weak with MacArthur; his coup effectively destroys the remaining legitimacy of the USA.

    Can we fit a tribute to Stan Lee in the Kaiserreich?

    But as a player playing as Mac it still frustrating ;)

    I think that's a wonderful idea. The problem is he was born in 1922, while the POD in Kaiserreich is in 1917, so we can't directly say his name(such person would likely be never born due to the butterfly effect).
    Perhaps an event in the pre-civil war US about book writers in NYC(Stan Lee was born in Manhattan) changing literature world with a new style of books with "pictures" inside...

    Play as Landon, then? Or Garner maybe?

    MacArthur, out of the three main factions, should be Hard Mode in the 2ACW. Pacific States should be able to hold their side of the Rockies, but retaking the whole US for them should be really tough. AUS has a weaker starting position than the Syndicalists but is better located, geographically. Reds have better industry and lots of men, but a shit position with respect to geopolitical rivals.

    Essentially, Huey is training wheels, the Reds are for a player who understands troop management and stuff and wants to try fighting a four-front war (since the most countries intervene against them), and MacArthur is the uphill climb.

    Stan Lee and Jack Kirby both should be mentioned at least. I can totally see Jack Kirby (you know, son of Jewish immigrants, dyed-in-the-wool working-class 'Murican) making Syndicalist Captain America for the Reds in opposition to goons like Pelley and Moseley in the AUS (Moseley being a massive antisemite and Pelley being American Hitler), or moving to the Pacific states somehow and working from there.

    ...man, Kirby was great.

    And there would be only one possible response to that event: Excelsior!

    Well, for propaganda, they could play Pelley as being stupid by writing comics about stuff like "they(the AUS) think so heavily about color skin/creed, they don't understand that everyone is the same(syndicalists) and so they are not connect to reality". it would be amazing to see captain red comic event (or whatever the captain america is here). while, i think Kirby would be in the CSA, the developers could place him everywhere(without Pelley's America, of course).


    Yeah, Jack kirby is truly missed by so many people around the world...

    i really like this timeline... here's hoping Fuherriech would be continuously updated, like KR is.

    Eh in my NE playthrough you have to make a great effort through the focus tree to restore legitimacy as you claim to be the US-successor and not a Canadian puppet. There's no mechanic besides two bad penalties at the start.

    The problem is when Canada attacks the CSA in the Civil War you get steamrolled as you start with only 3 militia units. I got the white-peace event, built up level 3 land forts on the border with 30-divisions and tried again a few years later. The CSA busted through my defenses in three weeks with sheer numbers.
