Oh I Wish I Was in Dixie: A Different North America

RoxyLikeAPuma, I like the timeline so far but if I were to alter certain parts of it I would add my suggestions:
* Germany should be reunified into the German Empire given that German nationalism was a thing in the 1800s. Since there existed only a North German Confederation and the southern German states would later join them it makes more sense for a unified Germany to exist as opposed to just two versions. Since the Soviet Union of Oh I Wish I Was In Dixie: A Different North America is more or less the same as it's OTL counterpart Nazi Germany should also exist as well.
* Algeria should be independent and not part of France whatsoever.
* Dixie should annex Texas as it's 14th state after Henry Clay's administration ends and fight Mexico in a war.
* World War I and World War II should occur. Communism should also rise to prominence per OTL given the Soviet Union's existence in your universe.

Speaking of which, how is pop culture and sports like in this timeline? Also, have you done any research into the timeline and can you specify the extent of the POD you've chosen (Britain takes Louisiana instead of Spain).

2020 Alaska General Election
*I know its been a while since I've posted anything, but I just want to thank everyone for their support as this thread has just passed its first birthday. I assure you this thread is not dead yet, and besides Dixie has midterms coming up next year. I couldn't miss that.*

2020 Alaskan General Election
2020 Alaska Election Wiki.png

In the 2020 Alaskan General Election, the Union of Democrats and Liberals (SDL), a broad centrist, opposition party, defeated the incumbent Constitutional Union (KS) to achieve a majority for the first time since the restoration of democracy in the country in 1992.

In the years preceding the election, the incumbent government of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev was met with several challenges including continually decreasing oil production and several corruption scandals culminating in Medvedev announcing his resignation in late 2019. Though less than a week later, Medvedev would unannounce his resignation and say he would stand for the upcoming 2020 elections.

In the elections, the SDL leveraged the dissatisfaction with Medvedev's government to achieve a large gain in seats relying on their tradition bases of support in Native Alaskans, American settlers, and urban voters. The SDL gained 19 seats in the election, but came 3 seats short of a 2/3's majority to allow them to unilaterally alter the country's constitution. This complicates the party's support of full Alaskan independence and renouncing their claims on mainland Russia. However, the party plans to move forward on one or more referenda on those questions. Though, the party has shied away on their support of a referendum on keeping the country's controversial monarchy.

The SDL, which had two leaders before the election, chose Anna Murkowski, who many style as the leader of the center-right faction of the party, as Prime Minister. Leaving Boris Edgmon, who is more popular among the further left wing factions of the party and among Native Alaskans, as Deputy Prime Minister. Murkowski is the first woman to be Prime Minister of Alaska and Edgmon is the first Native Alaskan to be Deputy Prime Minister.

Following the formation of the new government, the SDL will likely have several challenges ahead of them. The party has never been in the majority before and while the party prides itself on its "Broad but United" ideological message, governing with members ranging from conservative liberals to those just outside of being socialists is an extremely tough challenge in itself. Regardless, however, Alaska will likely have a radically different government from the over two decades of rule from the KS that came before.
