True, as well as the general lack of homophobia in must of the world. Although it's more than counterbalanced by the prevalence of colonialism and the normalization of fascism, which are both unequivocally bad thingsBut the mere presence of a Dominion of New England, bigger Canada and a leftier USA makes up for some of that.
Union of all Nationalities for Poland: Broadly centrist, with a large centre-right faction that has declined in recent years.What do the different parties stand for? We know what the 2 governing ones are but what about the others?
I'm sorry, I'm simply not up to date with pop culture to be able to accurately answer this. If anyone would ever want to collaborate with me on pop culture issues, please DM me! I'd love to bring this to the timeline.What are some of the most famous New England actors/actresses?
What are some of the most famous New England sitcoms?
You've blown my mind. Expect one for 2021, or even 2020 if I get my act together in time for this month.I have a New England themed wall calendar this year, and I just realized that TTL's 12 provinces would make a great calendar.
From the beginning I, along with a very large butterfly net for people, set out to try and plan out how events would logically flow. For the most part, I think I achieved this to my own satisfaction, and the result is indeed neither a full dystopia or a full utopia.
Thank you so much! That's what I always strive for.I really appreciate that OFC isn’t an overt dystopia or utopia. Some parts of it are better then otl, other parts are a lot worse. It feels a lot more believable because of it.
Keep in mind that this Serbia did not have the same type of NATO-led missile rain that rained down on it during the breakup of Yugoslavia. While the OFC breakup was by no means a peaceful operation, Croatia and Albania seceding were hardly the end of the universe for them. The region is still fraught with conflict, as Serbia, well, hasn't quite gotten the memo about the whole collapse.Speaking of the dystopia/utopia balance ITTL, the Balkans, particularly the Yugoslav region seem to be having some serious problems politically and peace wise, but seem to be a smidge more developed. Serbia being what looks like a military dictatorship and squabbling over the border with Croatia looks really problematic, but on the other hand the human development index map shows Serbia roughly the same socioeconomically as IOTL (maybe a bit better, IDK why, but I get that vibe from the map) and Croatia and maybe Bulgaria doing significantly better.
Will there ever be a post focusing on the Balkans (or is there one that I might have missed, I haven't been properly following this TL, just kind of jumping around from post to post)? What the hell is going on down there?
I wasn't expecting an immediate response anyway, especially considering the timing, it isn't the world's most relevant region, so any post is more than I could ask for. Albania was part of Yugoslavia ITTL? Interersting.Keep in mind that this Serbia did not have the same type of NATO-led missile rain that rained down on it during the breakup of Yugoslavia.

I must admit that the Balkan conflict is not a priority for Q1 2020, and might not be one until Q3 2020. I have a decently-sized anniversary update in the works, and the rest of this month and February I am still working on some loose ends I have here and there, and I will be putting more work into the canon-(in universe)-middle school textbook that I have been working on for around a year now on and off, which I hope to release this year. But! Have no fear, it is a personal goal of mine to leave no stone untouched for this timeline.
I, along with Our Fair Country's official Canadian lore assistant @canadian902 have begun work on the big Canadian update/rework!Apologies for the repeated posting but I was wondering if we could have a bit more info on Canada? (I know you gave us a list of PMs a while ago.) Is it substantially the same as OTL?
