There’s one important, must-ask question I absolutely MUST know the answer to: *ahem* Were dinosaurs a Pre-War thin or a Pre-Pre-War thing? ’Cause Dinky may look friendly…
I know this is an older post, but since no one else has pointed this out yet, I guess I could: Schwarzes Reich.View attachment 750533

The Schwarz Reich (literally Black Realm or Black Empire) was a breakaway faction of the Euro-German turned German Army that became a not-so-secretly fascist movement to take over Germany and build the Fourth Reich. General Helmut Hoffmann, Supreme Commander of the Army
and the Volksführer, built a cult of personality around himself and the famed nationalistic leaders of Germany, namely Bismarck, Frederick the Great, and in some circles, [REDACTED]. By 2077, they had largely taken over much of Germany, fighting off French communists in Alsass-Lothreigen more often than they were fighting the German Republican Army. Even when the United States and China destroyed themselves in nuclear warfare, the European Civil War dragged on and it seemed like Hoffmann would secure his grip on Germany, and this was the case for a few weeks before the ecological effects of the Great War spread across the world. The nuclear war had ripped holes in the ozone layer and millions of tons of ashes were released into the atmosphere. These ashes blocked out the Sun in some parts of the globe, which provided temporary shelter from the brutal UV waves from above, but soon famine and radiation sickness swept the globe, and with it, Europe went quiet with the rest of humanity.
I guess the Soviet Union had enough money after World War II to build the Palace of the Soviets. I know that it probably took the World's Tallest Building after its completion in 1955 from the Empire State Building, but what building took its title in 1970?

The Palace was the tallest building in the world from in 1955 until 1970. The building itself also sports the worlds largest and worlds tallest statue of Lenin.
