    yes i think, since 2 out of 3 main participant( west side) were monarchies they decided that a kaiser was necessary to prevent people like hitler

    I don't know if it's a proper cliche or not, but I always kind of get a rise out of Austria forming a sort of fascist "South Germany" counterpart to the democratic West Germany and the communist East Germany - one that once the three-wayish Cold War ends, sees all three reform a united Germany.

    Looking back, I realize it might have been seen as an endorsement of conspiracy theories - given I think that's a bannable offense, I am REALLY glad I got to elaborate.

    As i said just before, i think an AH reformation is possible, but otto has to enter the roman alliance and have a nation at least partially fascist. the main problem would be Stalin( kruschev would maybe let it be he was a bit more reasonable)

    What the heck I just realize I made a typo and said the exact opposite of what I want. I want to say that this timeline is not straight up dystopia...

    I agree it is neither good or bad just like real life. Many fascist “victory” timeline have the world turn into dystopia this one just stay in the gray area without being portray as totally good or totally bad.

    On the one hand, the Holocaust has killed less people, and we have President Albert Einstein. On the other hand, Mussolini is lionized by the American public, so...yeah.

    By the way, how badly has Romania been impacted by losing her coastline to Bulgaria?

    There is world map. Note that this is not quiet accurate and surely there is some mistakes. And some things are just pure guesses when there is not all information what should be. But I attempted make that so closely that what it should be in 01/01/1950.

    EDIT: Some fixings there.

    Excellent map, and my only correction would be that the ROC is far smaller. It’s no further north than Hong Kong. If I was really stingy I’d wonder whether it would be worth it to make Serbia red.

    @Sorairo

    I've been meaning to ask: what is the fate of the Bosnian Muslims ITTL? Have they been persecuted and oppressed?

    No, the only group that experienced severe persecution were the Serbs.

    I doubt Otto wants RA membership. The IU sources had him reluctantly working with the Danubian dictators and Mussolini was a means to an end. He's actually in good place right now to establish his dynasty in Hungary with Neutrality keeping foreign meddling to a minimum. I think Otto's biggest projects will be trying to reconcile with the Serbian minority in Hungary, and trying to build strong ties with fellow neutral nation, Romania.

    He may offer refuge too for refugees from the Fascist ad Communist states.
