    Given that Eduismo is an antifascist ideology I think Splendidfaith would be a better capitol name for the reborn Holy Nippon.

    Never! Even if we assume Holy Nippon regains it's independence following a purge of MacArthur or something Oswald would only allow them to go their own way if they were dyed in the wool fascists. The golden age they'd hearken back too would definitely be between the end of the Old Empire and the absorption of the Home Islands into the RU.

    Quick message from work:

    Great discussion going on about CoCaro and Africa! It made my three hour corporate seminar more entertaining. Lol!

    In this vein maybe Holy Nippon regains its independence as a reward for dragging MacArthur out into the street and killing him for plotting against Oswald? You could end up with a situation where the Nipponese select their own government but the Atheling of the MDP ends up a ceremonial leader, ironically similar to modern Japan's constitutional monarchy. This could also give Oswald a fanatical arrow in his quiver against the Council of Jehovah if Graham goes out of line trying to reclaim all the power Sunday lost.

    If that does happen, I would imagine the Nipponese returning the favor by invading East Asia in hopes of finding and raiding the tomb of Genghis Kahn himself. Next, they would exhume the remains and ship them to Philadelphia so that Oswald can personally burn them in front of a crowd of Betters and televise the event for the world to see. Cue the Czar raging beyond belief a second time, the first being the Immolation of Alyeska.

    In the Velvet Revolution chapter it's mentioned that the Council has it's hooks in the ORRA while the President has RUMP in his back pocket, since Oswald is a former top ORRA man I expect he'd have a solid bastion of support but you can never be too careful. Can anybody say Samurai Secret Service?

    The tan one is Gran Colombia, the orange one is Dutch (?) Guyana, and red is of course Eduist Brazil, dark purple is Peru, light purple is La Plata, I can't remember what Argentina is called now.

    I wonder if Eduist Brazil is gonna go out a conquering soon. I'm sure they could take a chunk out of Peru.

    What if Peru ends up a pathetically small rump state in universe that's still a little bigger than OTL Peru?

    I fell like either Gran Colombia or Peru have the potential of becoming this timeline's version of Yugoslavia.

    Sounds like the perfect theater for Oswald to make a name for himself

    All of this talk of JFK appearing has made me think of CoCaro's perfect Madness leader to send things to hell, especially in Africa. Ladies, Gentlemen, and Papists, I present to you:
