i like it very much,
i'd like to know about the political changes in the old CSA, what party is strongest down there? the Democrats being anti-CSA for so long and the Socialists are to far left for the CSA. so are the Republicans regrouping in the south land? or are the Whigs and Rad Libs coming back?
All of the old Confederate parties are gone. I'll get to that when the Southern states begin re-joining.
also Texas? what's going on there?
They're very thankful that they got out while the going was good...
Mormons how is all of this changing them? when will the Sandwich Isles become states, and Russian Alaska?
The Mormons view themselves as exiled from their rightful homeland. The Sandwich Isles (outside of the Big Island), will be joining the Union soon.
By '60s, Alaska is a Military District, where numerous resource-extraction companies will be moving into...
how are all the non-Americans taking being part of the USA?
They're either resentful (a spiteful few), or resigned, by the time Humphrey comes to power.
Aye. I definately thought Jamaica would fall during the second great war, it was just never mentioned. Having all the major Anglophone regions of North America under one flag is always enjoyable, though.
It is certainly interesting, to say the least.
I definitely agree that many Confederate die-hards would likely move to South Africa. It wouldn't be any kind of mass-exodus or anything, but I see at least enough for it to be noteworthy.
I always kind of saw Chester Martin continuing his slow slide into politics, probably eventually running for office and ending up as a prominent Socialist Congressman or Senator.
If Rita allows for it.
Over time, I think its likely that we will see a Cold War develop between Germany and the USA, the beginnings of which were alluded to at several points during the American Empire series. They are the only two countries with superbombs, and even though they were on the same side during the war, I don't think that the foreign policy goals of the two new superpowers are going to necessarily continue along the same track.
There's not going to be a mirror version of OTL's Cold War between the Germans and Americans: they really don't have anything to fight about. Besides, the Germans are far more worried about Russia, while the USA has more pressing concerns with Japan...
Ah, finally someone who's decided to do a post-Setting Accounts Timeline-191...uh, TL. Good stuff so far, but I do wish we would get to see more of the problems and politics of the smaller nations around the world; also, what provinces that are in dispute with Russia does Japan now 'formally' have? Just wondering.
The Japanese now have control of OTL Amur Oblast, Jewish Autonomous Oblast, Khabarovsk Krai, and Kamchatka Krai.
Also, what's up with the Republic of Texas? Will we get to see her succession of Presidents after Wright Patman? And how do Texans feel about being an American satellite nation, etc.? As for the Ottoman empire, what's going on with them? We know they have the IM now (I wasn't actually expecting this...I thought maybe they'd be thrown into the U.S.'s camp after perhaps fearing growing German dominance), will they get a superbomb? What does it currently look like right now (i.e. what territories do they hold)?
The Texans are lucky even to have their token independence. By the 1960s, they're a nice place for rich Americans to use as a tax shelter.
The Ottomans control all of the Middle East, portions of the Caucuses, and have puppet states of their own running Egypt and the Sudan.
At the moment, the only thing keeping them from building their own bomb is German pressure...
As for Austria-Hungary...if I recall correctly, I've heard before that an idea once posited by Archduke Franz Ferdinand was to eventually turn the empire over into some sort of confederation between her participant nations; perhaps this is what happens to her, rather than fall apart? It still retains all the territories she once had as a monarchy, but it's a parliamentary democracy, or something like that at some point in the future (it also gives a bit of poke toward the satellite nations of the Soviet Union in eastern Europe, considering Germany's growing dominance). Which brings me to another point: maybe a Hohenzollern who tries to unite the throne with Habsburgs?
What I want to know is, when did Sam Carsten finally succumb to skin cancer?
Well if you want to know he said he wanted to take the longest sun-bath ever getting the world record for sun-born and getting and his dead body dip in zinc oxide
Well, uh, logically going by the end of Settling Accounts regarding Sam Carsten, we can assume of course that he's probably succumbed to skin cancer by around 1960, or I'd at least think so.
Of course, there's always the possibility that we may have to deal with his treatments regarding it.
Sam Carsten will get a mention in the "Whatever happened to...?" segment.
This is far too depressing to continue reading
Which means it's succeeded, I suppose
My apologies. I'm merely continuing on the trajectory of TL-191.
Nicely done, but a few questions:
1) Is there now an independent U.S. Air Force under the DOD reorganization? One would think that the Army aviators have been chafing to be on their own, as they did in OTL.
Yup. I've added it into the timeline.
2) U.S. Navy's first nuclear sub-in 1955? U.S.S. Nautilus as in OTL?
In TL-191, the U.S.S. Pittsburgh is launched in 1954.
3) I gather that if there is an independent USAF, there's SAC, TAC, ADC, and MATS....
Yes, although some of it is structured differently (with the Japanese in mind, instead of the Soviets).
4) Australia and NZ hosting U.S. military forces, perhaps?
Yup; the Compact of Democratic States is a combination of our world's United Nations and NATO. They'll play a major role in any future conflict that breaks out in the Pacific.
