    In Syndicalism there poking fun at all the Unionized stuff and instances of inefficiency and corruption that could bring. Don't see much difference in Federalist and AUS scenarios

    In a "Buisness Plot"-AUS, Mr. Burns will be the wise and just boss, who always knows best.

    Inkwell style Mouth Charts from 1940's​

    The Inkwell Animation Coop is the premiere animation studio in the Socialist Republic and widely respected throughout the entire International.
    They were one of the first film studios to move to Picture City, Florida after the Second American Revolution and became world famous with their masterpiece The Sacrifice of Prometheus (1950) which is often seen as the turning point for when animation started being considered a legitimate art form and not just childish entertainment.
    Inkwell often competes with Pacifician animation studios such as (Schlesinger, Harman and Ising) SHI Cartoons, Fables Pictures, Universal Animation Studios (and after 1954 Walter, Walt and Iwerks Studio) and various Japanese animation studios

    And in a Pelley-Led AUS...

    Well, odds are half the population will be dead because vaccines are illegal, but anything that doesn't correspond to William Dudley Pelley's weird particular interpretation of Christianity will be banned.

    I'm thinking about a downtown abbey & victoria styled historical series that recounts the fictionalized events of the Hohenzollern's in the post second weltkrieg years. Recounting the events of the next thirty years, including: the third princess's marriage to a Ukrainian farm girl, the rise of the "chess match", syndicalist die hard holdouts, the moon landing and the assassination of the Kaiser & crown prince.

    Hm, I don't know about Kalterkrieg having more progress than Krasnacht, it seems to me that the KN devs prefer giving teasers and bits and pieces of lore rather than giving full on progress reports, leaving it up to the imagination on what happens,

    Alexa Davalos as Juliana Crain and Luke Kleintank as Joe Blake in the Torchbearer Streaming Union show City on a Hill, based on the novel of the same name by Philip K. Dick. Set in an alternate history where the American Union State won the Second Civil War, it tells the bleak story of an America divided between William Dudley Pelley’s AUS - an ally of Voynist Russia - in the East, a hypercapitalist, Japanese-allied Pacific States of America in the West, and a revanchist, resurgent Exile-dominated Anglo-Canadian Empire in the North. While the show has been criticised for the unlikeliness of its global scenario, it is considered to depict very well the sheer horror of a hypothetical victorious AUS where Pelley managed to usurp power from Long.

    SuperCom Interactive Video (InterVid) System, made by the Lotus Home Electronics Union of Britain. The union in question was one of the early pioneers of InterVid technology, and their iconic run of consoles - the FamiCom, the SuperCom, the UltraCom, the Dolphin, the Revolution and most recently the Dragon - has proved popular with gamers across the Internationale.

    Cover art from the second game in the three-game The Good Shepard series by the Canadian-based Plasma Storm InterVid Union. Set in the year 2154, it tells the story of the human soldier Commander Lily Shepard* and her battles to save the Union of Earth and others from the depredations of the imperialistic Citadel Concordat. The game series gained great praise for its complex and well-created main character; interesting factions (fans were particularly keen to praise the Turian Alliance, humanity’s main ally against the Citadel, and the Geth, intelligent machines under threat of genocide from the Citadel, who fight to save themselves and save the last of their Quarian creators from Citadel enslavement); well-designed game engine and play; and its wide cast (fan-favourites are the Turian law-enforcer Garrus Vakarian and the Asari former aristocrat-turned-slave Liara T’Soni, whose mother was killed for trying to reform the Citadel from within - these are also the two favoured romance choices by players). The main series ended in 2012 with the third game - much praised for its tying the threads of the previous games together, and its unabashedly happy, optimistic ending - but a spin-off series set in an unexplored region of the Galaxy is under way.
    A/N: * More like The Witcher than OTL ME - Lily is the main character as Geralt is in that, she can be customised and levelled up in different ways etc., but she’s always the lead.

    Oh, that's a good one. It can have a similar plotline as the first season of OTL the crown, with Bismarck as the veteran that prepares the young Wilhelm II for his role as monarch. In this ATL historians will more emphasise the continuation between Bismarck and Wilhelm than the break.

    Given the posters in the background, a neutral, former federalist zone may exists.

    Serious question what would the the US cultures and identity look post federalists/psa victory. Culturally what difference would there be. Also would americans still identify as americans or would state indentity return?

    Bryan Cranston as LBJ in the mini Series The Road to Power.Spanning 6 seasons,the show goes from Johnson's time as the youngest congressman in the lead up to the Second American Civil War to his victory in the post war reconstruction and eventually his return to national politics and Presidential Victory and administration. It is noted for its greatness as a political thriller and historical accuracy, showing the chaotic nature of congress and the lead up to the civil war (noting how Johnson very easily could have ended up on the side of Huey Long if it had not been for a few crucial decisions such as cozying up with the Extreme Racists like William Pelly), Johnsons monumental rise in the San Francisco Congress and close involvement in building the welfare state and the industrialization programs which the landon Administration implemented during the war (a good pointer to his later policies as President), the indepth dive into the process of reintegrating Texas into the Union and of course the tribulations of the Presidency and all the trials it brung. Bryan Cranston is praised for nailing Lyndon Johnson as he develops from a nervous but ambitious Freshman congressman to the master of the House and Titanic President who brought America truly back onto the World stage against Syndicalism and the construction of his dreamed Great Society (which withstood even attempts by President Goldwater to reverse it). On a personal level there is a deep psychological drive to succeed and his relationships with family. It got a TV Emmy both for acting and History and launched Cranston's Career in Hollywood

    Anthony Hopkins as Nixon in Oliver Stone's a Quest for Justice. The movie goes over Nixon's Career as first a Military attorney in the numerous War Crimes Tribunals set up in the aftermath of the Federalist Victory and the beginning of the Radical Scare, when he alternated between Prosecutor, (Bringing William Dudley Pelly to Justice for his Milita's "Cleansing" of African Americans) and Defense attorney (famously asking Senator Joseph Kennedy, a crucial element of the Radical Scare "Sir,I ask you do you have no hearing or no Decency?" upon the continued badgering of his client after proving he did not have any connection with Syndicalist "Nationalization committees") and his service in the Truth and Reconcilation commisson by President Johnson, when he prosecuted then General Westmoreland for his involvment in the Devil's Hole Massacre (in retaliation for for their suspected involvment in the brutal lynching of a number of Southern Upper class families,his unit murdered 322 of Syndicalist union members by herding them into the Mine and letting it blow),Famously saying "No man,is above the law.". Nixon himself, then retired after serving as an ACLU chairman for 6 years, approved mightly of the movie and met with Hopkins personally.
