I think too that this world is slightly better than OTL. More stable altough not necessary so prosperous Middle East. Of course you can ask was horrible Second Arab War worth of stable Middle East. And Africa too seems being more stable and more prosperous. Actually quiet many nations are in better condition.Though it was bloodier, I can’t help but feel like the end result this timeline produced is better than OTL. Communism and Nazism are more discredited than our timeline, and Italian Fascism has been tamed. Less conflict overall in the world. Not a bad footprint to have, and I think Capri would be proud to see that his sacrifice made it possible.
Yup. Overall, the world seems to be in a considerably better place: prosperity and stability throughout most of the Middle East, some developed African states, many more Asian Tigers, peaceful isolationist Russia, much more democratic all around.I think too that this world is slightly better than OTL.

Yes, the discrediting of the command economy unleashed India and China on the world markets years earlier, while smarter decolonisation has compounded global gains. The world economy is vastly larger than OTL, hence Ethiopia still being part of a rising tide.Yup.

TTL would probably see OTL as oddly backward, despite the lack of nuke-slinging and much more thorough decolonisation. Would OTL China and Russia be seen as fascists with a different coat of paint?
Also: Ethiopia is said to have OTL Angola’s living standards. Since Angola’s nominal per capita GDP is triple OTL Ethiopia’s, does that mean TTL Ethiopia is still richer than OTL, despite the frankly apocalyptic war they fought?
No, but he got much closer than OTL. He was as popular as Marine is now. The Front may win soon.This chronology was perfect from the first chapter to the last, it was like a real journey to another world, thank you so much for sharing it with us Sorairo. I have a few final questions for you.
1) Did Le Pen become President of France after his victory in 1992?
2) How Italian are Albania and Montenegro?
3) is Victor-Emmanuel IV of Italy a more decent human being than OTL prince Victor-Emmanuel of Savoy?
Does the country still at least maintain strong worker's rights, or has it been reduced to a corporate fiefdom?Kurdistan: The traditionally Socialist country has been forced to make more enterprise-friendly laws in the modern world, with many of the old communes having shut down. However, it still remains a very secular state by Middle Eastern standards, albeit quite a militaristic one for fear of their being surrounded by the CIS. Quite tolerant to their Arab minority. Living standards OTL Jordan.
Seems it's doing well compared to OTL. What stopped TTL south sudan from collapsing into civil war, anyway?Sudan: The domination of the Black, Christian South in Sudan finally grew too wearisome for their Arab, Muslim North. In 2003, a referendum was held among the North of the country on whether it wanted independence, which was successfully voted in. There is now consequently a North Sudan and a ‘Sudan’ (occasionally referred to as South Sudan) on the OTL borders. There is some discussion about North Sudan joining South Egypt but this is a long way away yet. Sudan, by contrast, benefits from strong relationships in Africa, including and especially with the East African Federation. North Sudan living standards are OTL Egypt and Sudan is OTL Tanzania.
Yikes. Also, please split that monstrosity up into paragraphs! A wall of text taking up almost the entire screen is hard to read.South Africa: I
That's getting into people born well after the POD, so I'll leave that to reader imagination.An amazing end. What regal names did Umberto and Ferdinands successors take?
Climate change is about as much of an issue as OTL as the increased use of nuclear greatly downgraded the number of emissions. Kurdistan is about as Left-Wing as 1970s Britain in economic terms. South Sudan is more integrated with the West as a Commonwealth member and its downfall was absolutly a no-go for any and every state in the organization. I didn't want to make the S. Africa the only entry divided, but I suppose it is probably for the best.Snip
The first two vanished in the shuffle of Tolstoyism, as their religious observation on each count was not considered marked enough to mark them for higher status.Mikhail Gorbachev?
(I think that both men haven't said anything after dissolution of USSR)
Vladimir Putin (if he even is born)
Robert and Edward Kennedy?
Is Democratic Party basically US Social-Democrats?
What did happen for Serbia after ousting of Tito?
Has any children of GHWB entered to politics?
I mean, it's not like any of the OTL parties were much kinder to the community until about the turn of the Millennium either.I just realised Italy is probably even less friendly than OTL towards the LGBTQ+ comunity.
I mean between the fact the italian right is even more powerful than OTL and that the Catholic Church's reputation is better than OTL, i seriously doubt it is a nice situation for anyone who isn't straight.
