    Nice work. Does all or most of the economic downturns that happens OTL happens here?

    Oh that's fun. I've done a lot of research/work with Commonwealth constitutions and Constitution Acts in my RL research job, so I'm impressed!

    Anything notably different in the British Royal Family TTL?

    Why would anybody go back to Cape Breton if they finally got an excuse to leave? For real though, brilliant as always, I love these small articles that flesh out the world bit by bit even more than the huge summaries. By the way, what led to London remaining the financial centre of the world, rather than Manhattan? Just the bigger role of the empire and later the commonwealth? Or did New York end up less prominent what with its boroughs being split across two countries.

    But they can marry Catholics! Prince William is married to a princess of Brazil, which is the biggest Royal Family change I know about. I imagine Prince Harry is still single?

    Firstly:



    Secondly, can we get an idea of how things are like in Kenya, Uganda and Equatoria, particularly why they are still Commonwealth Realms ITTL?

    Outside of the communist group, if there a push for renaming the country to something less representative of the colonialist and oppressive past?

    Interesting read. It seems like southern Africa in OFC has a much nastier and tragic story than it does OTL. How long does it take to write these articles?

    Is this a by-election for the seat?

    Sure! For the most part, the central/northern African Commonwealth Nations were simply left to go it alone under Majority Rule in the 1970s, with ample support from Britain (Read: £), and their position in the Commonwealth allows them funding from the shared pool of development money, giving them incentives to stay. (Ie Neocolonialist policies)

    No. The consensus remains on the country's name being Rhodesia.

    It is quite bad! There really is no redeeming qualities about southern Africa. This article in question took about a week to write, because it was a bit more indepth than I normally do.

    It is not! But I see how you'd see that. This is simply a screen cap of the election in November 2018. I decided to try some new things and this was my trial balloon.

    Sad to say there's no more "story" to this one! This is canon, however. I am still trying out new graphics styles this weekend, and I figured why not post the results here :coldsweat:

    The PAP is THIRD place? I think many things in this timeline is plausible, but tis' is truly sorcery!

    On a more serious note, great job once again!

    This is what I imagined what Rhodesia would've been like without Mugabe. While it may not a be a hellhole of hyperinflation, it would still struggle in ensuring equality to all citizens.

    Overall, you did well to paint a mixed picture.

    Is there anything I can do to put pressure on South Africa and Rhodesia to get their shit together?
