Thanks! They have a tough balancing act to follow, as of 1961, that's for sure. I'm going off of what I remember from one of the books, where Flora Blackford (IIRC) mentions that the Germans have killed more people in the Congo than the Belgians before them. And the Germans aren't that brutal in every part of their African holdings, though their hold will be weakened over time thanks in no small part to the advent of the Congo Affair. A possibility. The National Party has a large number of ex-Confederates to call on for support as well... They're not perfect...there are a number of less than scrupulous business interests in the country that do their best to circumvent the sanctions. TR in TL-191 seemed much more conservative and business-minded than his OTL counterpart. Though a conservationist, he's less well known for his views on that issue. Environmentalism isn't considered a radical idea as of 1961; it's a cause that will attract the support of a lot of young people in the coming years...mostly stemming from a desire to "do their part" to make the United States the greatest place to live in the world. Argentina isn't in great shape at all. They've lost territory to Chile, Paraguay, and Brazil, and remain a (very resentful) puppet state of Rio de Janeiro as of 1961. I decided to skip more write ups and jump back into the timeline. I hope to paint a much more detailed picture of the other nations/blocs by the end of the TL. Ayup, more or less (though probably with Turtledovian-style names).
