    I assume your Head of Government is modded in though?

    Also KRDH isn't abandoned, its just the team is very small and given that most of the people I spoke to there during my (very very) short time as a dev had signed up to add new things rather than meekly accept some of the KR4 changes and ideas that the team there had they were all relatively demoralised.

    I know I personally kind of lost my enthusiasm for doing much when I saw the crazy changes to Italy that still annoy me.

    EDIT: I shoudl clarify that this isn't me moaning about KR4, I can do that elsewhere, but more that the direction of KR4 and some of the massive changes being made over there meant that it felt to me that I had no idea where to start helping and that somehow the only guides for how to do things were for KR4 with no real KRDH style guide (at the time, this may have changed since).

    It is, that's what I explained in the Reddit post actually.

    It's okay, it's not darkest timeline, Germany will be defeated by the glorious Russian Tsardom and her unsavory but still better than the Natpops Syndie allies.

    Right?

    Oh yes, and I said this on Reddit, but here it is again: reading Arco-Valley's Wikipedia he sounds somewhat Integralist(Catholic, in support of decentralization); this could be a good way to get a Natpop path for Germany, with Arco-Valley representing a syncretic Catholic-Protestant faith in Germany, ending the Kulturkampf, and giving more autonomy to the Kingdoms; essentially, he'd be Integralist. This would satisfy the people who want a Natpop Germany, but would set it apart from being just a boring Nazi clone.

    We need more Integralists. Carlist Spain, Kingdom of France, Germany, Poland, Poland-Lithuania, monarchist Ireland, Canada.

    What's the place of Social Credit in KR Canada. I feel like SC could just be a weird right-wing Huey Long-esque form of Social Democracy, or it could just become reactionary-radicalized and a form of NatPop. In which case it would be more Integralist than Legionary.

    I still think it'd be funny if there was a path that made Coughlin president, and he aligns the U.S. with the (now defunct) Catholic Alliance, which could be reinstated as an Integralist bloc.

    I have noticed that the CSA has both a head of state and head of government, so is the CSA some kind of parliamentary syndicalist republic or something? What powers do each of these positions hold in the CSA?

    The CSA is democratic and like the USA. It only has a different economic system.

    That depends on which path you go down.

    I know that it's democratic and whatnot, however, from what I can gather it appears as though the Syndicate head of state and head of government are separate individuals.

    This is the case in many OTL Democatcies, like Ireland (or the UK, but then the head of state is not elected).

    So what are the roles of these two positions in the CSA?

    Foster/Browder CSA is an authoritarian regime with large amounts of executive power and the legislature reduced to a glorified rubber stamp. Syndie/radsoc CSA is like the USA but iirc they abolish the Senate and the executive is weaker.

    Shouldn't Syndie USA have significantly greater structural changes than the RadSoc USA?

    It seems to be mostly economic in nature. RadSoc Socialist Republic of America is a market-socialist mishmash, the Commonwealth of America completely replaces corporations with worker-run labor syndicates.

    I thought that the Syndie option would completely change the government into a series of unions like the French Commue or the Union of Britain.
    How could the economy be run Syndicalist-ly and still have a Independent House of Representatives and Presidency?
    Would the TUC-equivalent act like another house of congress, replacing the senate? or are there basically two governments at once, how would that work? Or is there something obvious I'm missing?

    From the stuff I've been seeing on Reddit, the idea is basically, this movement grew out of the uniquely American situation, where everyone even the fringe leftists aggrees that the basic government structure is great, it's just insert bugbear here that's the problem. The Syndies are leery of a strong executive after the last US President fucked everything up with hamfisted attempts to save the nation, and the Senate is at this point still a rather corrupt institution that exists more to delegate power to the states than to serve the people, so the idea is eliminate the Senate, weaken POTUS, and replace corporations with unions and everything should be good.

    Keep in mind that the Syndies keep a lot of the US Constitution, up to and including the 1st amendment written right into the document itself alongside a stronger 14th. Jack Reed saw how bad a strong executive can go, they aren't making the same mistake twice.
