Depending on how Disney goes after the 2ACW, the Lion King might mostly be a German/Mittleafrika animated movie. Any ideas for the plot?
From what I recall the factions are basically totalitarian slave empire, corporatocracy, progressive democracy apparently known for the porn industry and the occasional bout of ultranationalism, and a revolutionary state that broke off from the slave empire but has since lost a lot of its moral high ground through state sponsored terrorism and mass historical revisionism.
What would a AUS version of Star Wars be like?
Do you think a PSA, Federalist or even New England version of Star Wars would be different from OTL?The initially obscure politician Palpatine becomes the local governor of swamp planet Naboo and becomes a beloved, benevolent leader there. Then, the honorable populist Palpatine gains popularity in the rest of the galaxy and runs for Supreme Chancellor, only for the corrupt, evil elites of the Galactic Republic to try to keep him out of power by any means necessary. The evil elites even attempt to assassinate him, but their plans fail. Palpatine then leads a revolution against the elites of the Galactic Republic and forms the Galactic Union State.
However, after taking over, some conservative separatists calling themselves the Confederacy of Indepedent Systems and some evil Syndicalist terrorists calling themselves the "Rebel Alliance" wage a war against him.
Not particularly tbh. There would be somewhat different flavoring to the rebels perhaps based on local cultural zeitgeists but otherwise not much would change.Do you think a PSA, Federalist or even New England version of Star Wars would be different from OTL?
I had an idea about a comic featuring a socialist working-class hero called the Joker, who lacks superpowers and fights using his wits to produce tools and traps to fight criminals with. His main enemy is the Lord of Bats, a blood-sucking vampire that terrorizes the commune of Gotham at night, whose real identity is revealed to be an unscrupulous capitalist with connections to the German arms industry.
Joker's catchphrase is "Why so serious?", usually said to seething criminals after they've fallen into one of his traps.
Gotta admit they make the Mounties look coolView attachment 683609

Just how the Pacific States used the Western genre to solidify its national mythos, the Northern or Northwestern genre was used by Canada to fulfill a similar purpose.
The stories are primarily set in western Canada or Alaska during the late 19th or early 20th century. The protagonist is commonly a Mountie who fulfills the same role as a Cowboy or Sheriff in a Western setting. Other characters include lumberjacks, fur traders, outlaws, smugglers, prospectors, Native Americans, and settlers. Common settings were the boreal forests, mining towns, isolated cabins and tundra. The primary antagonist in a Northern is usually the wilderness, or the weather or other natural enemies that the protagonists must overcome. Animals were a common in the genre either as companions or as the antagonist.
Unlike the Western genre, there are no outlaws or lawlessness. Even in a crime centric Northern, the side of law and order is always done by the Mounties, who are the paragons of Canadian's values and principals. A typical story outline of a Northern involving Mounties is the pursuit, confrontation and capture. The chase taking place across the Canadian wilderness.
The genre first gained traction in the 1920’s then exploded in popularity in the 1930’s thanks to the Canadian government giving generous subsidies to promote the genre. Its popularity would eventually taper off by the late 1950’s.
