Three volumes. And when those are done I'll wait 20 years and make three more. JarJar will be key to everything.“The second part of an epic dystopian trilogy”
You maniac, you have a third part planned? How long will this go?
Personally I figured it would be the 80's, 90's and early 2000's all thrown into a blender with much more insane version of GI Joe, 90's comics and the war on terror...I'd say "Pinnacle Future" will go through the end of the century or possibly twenty/thirty years into the next (likely in excruciating and excellent detail), with the next part (New Frontier?) dealing with the late 21 through 22 centuries. Space Force for best RU military branch! Get ready for Madness Expanse up in here.
I'd like to add to that list Steelist street militias that act as an unofficial sin-police, picking fights at nightclubs and the like. Religion in general is probably going to be hugely contentious in a post-RU society, with foreign Protestant denominations trying to lure in people who don't trust the AFC and keep these converts safe from reprisals. Depending on just how far AFC has fallen, having either the first AFC or the first non-AFC head of government of an RU successor state is gonna be a divisive event.I'm sure I'll eventually write a story where the RU/NUSA collapses, but not saying if it will or won't in the main canon. But I definitely want to explore a world where people live every day in the shadow of the Union's history. Let's say this picture is set during 1.0's ending in the Former American Republic of New England. So random drivers in FARNE just trying to get to work are stopped by a massive parade of mourners commemorating the anniversary of Oswald's death and cops are wearing old MDP style striped armbands "for historical purposes." "HERITAGE NOT HATE." Curse words and bottles are thrown, horns are honked, disorderly conduct charges are filed. Just another day in the former Republican Union. Imagine going to see your grandpa and his whole house is full of Oswald merch and kitsch, and your parents just say "Oh, Grandpa just misses the good ol' days." Sometimes he takes his old ORRA uniform out of the closet and dances to "Those Were the Days" with your grandmother in the moonlight of their 60th wedding anniversary, which your cousin Sally uploads to social media and gets heart reacts. "What a sweet couple. Thank you for your service! <3 ") Just kind of creepy and funny to imagine.
This is true. I could see the Union compensating by putting people to work rebuilding the Canal and building more ships and guns to turbocharge the war effort. Still, even with that there will be some economic dislocation.You have a point, but wouldn't the destruction of the Panama Canal cause a significant damage to the RU's shipping industry?
"Spaaace..the..final..frontier. These are the voyages of the NUS Enterprises. It's five year mission, to discover new life and new civilizations. To boldly go and spread manifest destiny and pinnacle fluids where no one has gone before!"I'd say "Pinnacle Future" will go through the end of the century or possibly twenty/thirty years into the next (likely in excruciating and excellent detail), with the next part (New Frontier?) dealing with the late 21 through 22 centuries.

Now i want to see an alternate universe of this TL where Oswald was allowed to become a writer.
umI was born in Virginia. After graduating from William and Mary University, he became a lawyer in 1767 but became a member of the Virginia Colonial Congress in 1769 because he was interested in politics. He participated in the First and Second Continental Congress as Virginia's representative in 1775 and was elected as a member of the Basic Committee for the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
The July 4 Declaration of Independence, which became the ideal of the U.S. founding by calling for freedom and equality, is largely based on him. Afterwards, he returned to Virginia and served as a member of the State Council and governor of the State, and made efforts to enact the Protestant Freedom Act for the abolition of the feudal father-to-son system and separation of church and state.
When he became a member of Congress in 1783, he helped lay the groundwork for a fledgling republic by drawing up a dollar-based currency system and a government proposal on the northwestern part of the Ohio River. He was appointed to the France-based corporation in 1785 and took office as the first secretary of state of the G. Washington administration in 1789. But he resigned in 1793 due to a policy confrontation with Finance Minister A. Hamilton, who advocated a strong central government system. He formed the Democratic Republican Party and became the leader of the Hamilton-led federal faction, which is the origin of the current Democratic Party.
He was elected vice president in 1796 and third president in 1800 to become the first president to hold an inauguration ceremony in the new capital, Washington. While in office, he focused on the superiority of civil liberties, respect of minority opinions, establishment of freedom of religion, press and publication, purchased a vast area from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico in 1803 from France to almost double his territory, while maintaining his isolationist foreign policy so that he would not be swept away by international tension by the Napoleon war.
He was reelected in 1804 and retired from politics in April 1809. He then returned to Monticello, Virginia, where he founded the University of Virginia in 1819, and took the chair himself to promote democratic education. It was also called the "Sung of Monticello" because it influenced many people in various fields, including philosophy, natural science, architecture, agriculture and language.
He died on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. The epitaph he had personally set during his lifetime is famous for the words "The Founders of the Declaration of Independence, the Founders of the Virginia Protestant Freedom Act, and Thomas Jefferson, the father of the University of Virginia."
