    Nice, it seems Islamic fundamentalism may not be as widespread, or at least that countries like Egypt or Iran have a somewhat more liberal central government than ours.

    I like how it took all of three years for New England to decide that prohibition wasn’t worth it.

    That's probably how long it too for the wealthy to go through their booze stockpiled in their wine cellars. ;)

    How would they have even enforced that in Australia. I'm presuming not all that well.

    I hope @Kanan doesn't mind me answering given her not knowing, but I found this album on Imgur to be helpful/illustrative! It's originally from one of the Paradox Game subreddits, so I can't claim credit, but I used the advice/examples for a project I'm working on for the future.

    Especially if Pharohism wins over Arabism and Islamism, a Pharohistic Egypt would certainly be better for Egyptian Jews and the Copts

    Oopsie! It should not be nationally prohibited, that's an error!

    Correct! It is not. Iran and Egypt have fairly liberal governments, but the most liberal is Arabia, which is one of the more democratic countries in the Middle East.

    It is regulated in North Borneo and banned in several southern islands as a public health measure.

    It did not last long in the Commonwealth in general.

    Poorly to not at all!

    Egypt is an Islamic country.

    Just a reminder to everyone, TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO ENTER THE DBWI CONTEST! I will be accepting submissions through the end of today, after which they will be judged and the winners announced tomorrow morning. Good luck everyone!

    I for one would be interested in knowing how Arabia became so democratic - and also a republic, if I read the world map correctly. I assume something happened to the Sauds...

    Darn! So close and yet so far. I might have misinterpreted May 10th. Never mind, I’ll be interested to see what others come up with. Maybe I’ll show off my map some day, just not for the contest.

    Once I finally get over the fact I gotta finish the Netherlands boxes, and then the rest of Europe, I'll get to Arabia :p

    If you have a map that can finish on the 10th, I can extend it for you!

    You never stop, do you?

    I’ll be able to submit it by 9am (American) EDT, so if that’s okay with you, thanks a lot!

    I will look forward to the Netherlands then. If it’s even a fraction as good as your previous ones, it’ll be worth the wait. You put so much effort in, it’s scary.

    Here is my chance to submit a DBWI entry:

    PoD: France succeeded in electing a Communist president ended up in a wrong turn when a failed coup had ended up into a series of violent attacks.

    The French Civil War was an eruption of dissatisfaction and a failed coup against the government of Third Republic after the election ended with Communist president Maurice Thorez and support was rapidly rising which had led to an open but bloody war that had left millions dead. The war has been started with the election of Maurice Thorez as a president after struggles in the 1948 election and failed coup followed led by Charles de Gaulle and his members of the National Restoration Army (ANR) which would further spur violence that had completely splintered the army in metropolitan France in which resulted in further military and police defections to the Charles de Gaulle's faction ANR, Maurice Thorez, whose now a president responds deliberately by proclaiming himself as a "Supreme Communard" and further establishing as Communard Republic of France in famous speech at National Assembly that has been occupied by French Communist Front.

    Charles de Gaulle, leader of National Restoration Army had fled from Paris to Algiers, deliberately speaks to the people that the country wasn't bowed down to communard on his famous speech on what historians called "Appeal of July 14" (Appel du 14 Juillet) on which he declared himself as a sole legitimate leader of France in which had only days lasted until hostile actions on July 15 which had further speeding up an 'action of provocation' that was commencing the first battle between the National Restoration Army and the Communard in Marseille on that day that the first battle was the start of campaign between the competing factions and the civil war had spread to its colonies in Indochina and other colonies due to an outbreak of what was the first years of the battle between the Communard and National Restoration forces.

    However, the news that had further alarmed the British government as the news of communist takeover had also spread. The British government moved towards the intervention by the second week of August, and was able to secure the assistance of Canada, New England, Australia, and New Zealand. The Commonwealth represented the strongest and largest anti-Communist force in France as there was a mechanism that could raise more soldiers in assisting the anti-Communard forces while National Restoration Army was able to encourage citizens of opposing the Communard regime to rise up as well as raising soldiers from French colonies. In response, the Communard Republic of France had raised its soldiers and militias by that time the British had formally intervened.

    The Commonwealth forces had assisting the National Restoration Army in taking a large amounts of metropolitan France from Communard control and it was realized that the French Communards had raised million forces to defend against the Commonwealth intervention but suffered amounts of losses in Riviera Campaign while the British had launched large-scale amphibious Operation William in taking control of Provence from Communard control while counter-offensive by the February 1949 had proven the National Restoration Army was driven out by large numbers of Communard forces. The goal for Operation William was to capture Marseilles, while the second invasion, named Operation Clandestine took place along the English Channel. Primarily composed of French National Restoration, New English, Australian, and New Zealander forces led by Admiral Bertram Ramsay, the assaults against Aquitaine would become the deadliest campaign ever waged by the Commonwealth. Despite the setbacks and inflicting heavy losses, the National Restoration was managed to secure much of Northern part and perform campaigns to link with the anti-Communard French forces in the western part of France from mid 1949 to early 1950 and was able to decapitate the remaining Communard with the Liberation of Paris by December 1950.

    The last remaining pockets of Communard forces has been surrendered as the French National Restoration wage the Burgundian Campaign to dislodge the remaining pockets of the French Communards until the last capital of the French Communard has been captured and marked the end of resistance, and the Fourth Republic was proclaimed on 30th of September, 1951.

    Thanks for all the answers! As much as it's a bit surprising seeing an America with significant mass transit, it doesn't seem that crazy - which is what makes our timeline's situation even more sad.

    First time trying to make a Wiki. More difficult that I thought. My grammar is terrible and file was to big to upload as one so there are several smaller ones. There is a second post too. https://imgur.com/a/hjKqXnS Here to see the whole thing.
    This was fun. Support Kanan, visit my TL, etc.
