As another note for the Cokies, aside from the practical reasons for CoCaro to remain independent, the story potential for it in the Oswald era is incredible. As I have remarked earlier, with the coming decadent "Super-Pinnacle-Future," and the Oswald Reforms and all their potential sexual insanity, the Cokies will decidedly not be on board. They're fundamentally reactionaries, not messianic totalitarians. Change don't sit well with em. Just imagine how nutty that could get if things like interracial polygamy happen. The Carolinas will have a collective, never-ending stroke, and I think it'll be absolutely hilarious. Also, since TTL has as one of its "themes" the idea of building a society where all the worst aspects of America are turbocharged, I would argue you need an aspect that highlights all the terrible things in the South. The RU is too fundamentally New England Yankee to really have that in there. Thus, the Cokies pick up the slack in that department, and become the evilest Southerners you ever have seen, sir. Hark the Sound! Also, I would like to join the chorus calling for at least one more culture update before we really get into the meat of the upcoming wars. Also, is the League of Nations still going to be a thing?
