"What Madness Is This?" - The Expanded Universe

I finally got off my rear end and created this thread for "fan-fiction," short stories and other assorted prose, as well as propaganda posters, flags, maps, art, etc, relating to or set in the Madnessverse. I have a few brief short stories and the like planned, and several people have authored very good expanded universe material in the main thread. :) Cheers!

I'll kick us off by linking to all of the YouTube videos for the TL (I'm not sure how many Madness readers even know these exist):

Spud. Yummy yummy Spud.

Alright guys, heres my first contribution to the WMIT Expanded Universe. I have more Madnessverse related things lying on my laptop, so stay tuned. :D


The Day the Bombs Fell as Reported on the Televisor

By Ziodberg12


A rare photograph of Georgia Military Police in an unknown residential neighborhood during the first days of WWII

“Mark my words Mac, I haven’t the slightest clue what weapons we’ll use to fight World War Two, but I do know that World War Three will be fought with clubs and stones.”

-Gilgamesh Dalton in a letter to fellow Georgian expatriate scientist Maxwell “Mac” Goodman, dated July 28, 1959 [1]

“Jimmy, we're all headed straight for nuclear war and we're doing so knowingly. But its not like we can do much about it now.”

-Virginian political commentator, journalist and historian James Monroe Walton Jr. on “The Nightly Show with Jimmy Masterson”, Wednesday, October 28, 1998 [2]

“Breaking News! Hello, I’m Stuart J. Williams [3], your host of the Columbian Broadcasting Corporations’ [4] Channel 2 Afternoon News, live from the bomb shelter under our headquarters in Atlanta. Breaking News! Breaking News! Our President George Washington X has announced a state of emergency from Richmond today. The following news report may be crucial to your survival! We at this station strongly recommend you do not change this station! Take notes on paper, it could prove a saving grace! Men, women and children of Columbia, it is with great pain that I read this announcement to you all. We have received word from a number of news agencies that both Boston and Shicagwa have been attacked and burned to ash with nuclear weapons. That’s right, nuclear weapons! FARNE President George Bush II went on FARNE state-run televisior networks to announce that, in his words; “Whoever is responsible for this heinous attack will pay heavily.” No word yet on who exactly launched the weapon that destroyed Boston, or that which destroyed Shicagwa for that matter. Also, no word yet from the LASR itself and what became of its President Charles Oswald II and the Reverend Billy Graham. However it is assumed by this station and other media outlets that the 87-year old "Mad Reverend Billy" has died in the nuclear explosion, though there is still is a chance that he could have survived in a bunker. Whether Oswald and his government managed to make it to their government’s bunker is anyone’s guess. Rumors are also coming in that some cities in Europe have been destroyed by nukes, but nothing is official yet in that regard. We expect constant updates on this emergency situation so, as mentioned before, people of Columbia do not change this channel.”

"As for the recent state of emergency, President Washington has also announced the deployment of a number of CC Military [5] units to a number of major cities, as well as to some rural and more remote areas, in case a crisis of refugees fleeing from the cities comes to pass. The President, and this station, advises every Columbian man, woman and child to get to their bomb shelter as soon as humanly possible! If for some reason you don't have one, run across the street and share with your friend, neighbor, relative or co-worker. The President states that there is no telling when a nuclear strike could occur in any given Columbian city. The President states major cities are at a higher risk. Basically, the more affluent, big and populous the city, the more likely a nuke could be dropped on it. At least for now. School has also been cancelled nation-wide and children all across the nation are, for the time being, ordered to be kept by school administration staff in their schools bomb shelter. Almost every school in Columbia has one. Once the military is deployed in full force the government hopes to have every child re-united their families and loved ones in due time. To our audience watching this, we know this must be very distressing. We knew for over a decade this day would come, and now it’s all come to pass! Nevertheless, stay calm! If we all do, we will eventually weather the coming storm. This report is developing as we speak. We will have more instructions on what to do momentarily.”

12:18 P.M. EST

“Oh, the humanity! More news folks! We have just received word from the Prussian, formerly Rheinish, Reuters News Agency [6] that Paris and Rome have also been hit by nuclear weapons and burnt to the ground. The main line of the House of Bonaparte, including Napoleona I and the heir to the throne Napoleon VII, as well as other members of the central government including French Prime Minister Gerard Antione Messier and Marshal of France Nicholas Sarkozy [7], are said to be safe in a bunker complex under Paris, which is rumored to be connected to the famous catacombs of the city. What became of Pope Julius V and the rest of the men of the Papacy is yet unknown! We, as of now, have no idea who started this quagmire! However, the CBC’s news team has ways of finding out. Our networks’ phones to most of the major cities of the world are still operational, save those connecting to the nuked cities. As I speak to you we are attempting to connect with Richmond, among several other major cities such as Madrid, Berlin, Moscow, Milan, St. François, Cairo, Tokyo, Batavia [8] and Cape Napoleon. We expect to be connected with the central government in Richmond momentarily.”

12:56 P.M. EST

“It has come to my attention that the connection to Richmond was a success! It also appears that our crew has a senator, yes, Senator Archibald Bulloch Gomez on the line to Richmond to talk about this whole unfolding mess of a situation. Senator Gomez are you there?”

“Yes. I am! Everything is fine in Richmond so far, but the President’s scrambling to get the city, and country, under control in case this thing should spiral any further out of control. I can see outside right now! Landships rolling through the streets, soldiers coming out of the woodwork, everyone forced to stay indoors. The place is already starting to look deserted. Only a few people left outside! I see some infantrymen telling a couple and their young daughter to get indoors, and they better obey!”

“Yes, I understand perfectly. Anyways, what is your opinion on this whole mess?”

“Well, Stew there are many theories going around the halls of government here in Richmond. You gotta understand, we are trying to process all this info and it’s all coming in all so quickly! One theory is that the Empire could have decided to cut the head of the snake so to speak and destroy the LASR by nuking Schigagwa and “Anti-Rome”, which is a strong message symbolically. Then, Chuckie Jr. and Reverend Billy decided to strike back at the Empire and hit Boston, and by extension FARNE, for good measure. Another theory is that things escalated along the LASR-FARNE border and that the LASR destroyed Boston as a direct result, which made the Imperials decide to strike Shicagwa before the things got any further out of hand. Then the LASR retaliated by bombing Paris and Rome. Yet another theory is that the LASR decided to destroy Paris, Rome and Boston in an effort to, how do they say, "Complete their Manifest Destiny". Lastly, others say that the Russians may have destroyed Paris and Rome. Honesty, I don't buy that crap theory! The Russians gain nothing from destroying these cities! The LASR on the other hand, humph, they get what they’ve wanted since '96 and before! Old Billy Boy kept calling Paris and Rome “the new Sodom and Gomorrah”. Real subtle I know! Not to mention nuking Boston gets him one step closer to re-uniting the old American Empire! Still you'd think they'd nuke most every city on earth if they really wanted to create real havoc? Anyways, I’m getting ahead of myself. I personally believe the second theory, but that’s just me. I’m not going to get into it Stew. There’s no time.”

“Thank you for your import Senator Gomez. Has the government been contacting other cities in the world?”

“Are we ever! The President and General Staff are trying to get in touch with every city in the country! That’s a priority! As for the world, we’ve contacted Madrid in order to get some answers, but the Iberian Minister [9] was just as clueless as we are! We’re trying to get in contact with a number of cities, Berlin, Vienna, Budapest, Keybeck City, Oshkosh, among others, as we speak! Anyways, important business in Richmond! Everything’s under control so far! Gotta run!”

“Thanks for speaking to this station Mr. Gomez.”

2:31 P.M. EST

“Breaking News! Coming in from our phone line to Cairo! The United Arab Empire under Sultan-Emperor Mohammed, who as we know came to the throne after the death of his father Ismail III in 1997, has mobilized his nation's troops along the borders of the Italian, Imperial and Prussian African colonies. The Sutlan-Emporer seems to be using the now unfolding chaos in Europe as a way to make some sort of a land-grab in Africa. All I can say is that the UN nations won't take this without a fight! I wouldn't be surprised if Cairo, Mecca and Khartoum went up in smoke!”

3:29 P.M. EST

“Our lines to Caligiari have bought in new news! The United Nations is calling an Emergency Meeting! We have received this news from Italo Lanza, the Italian ambassador to the UN. The diplomats from all UN nations are all gathering to discuss the recent outbreak of nuclear war. Whether their respective governments will still be in one piece after the meeting is over has yet to be seen. Viewers, if they ain't in one piece by the time its over, that meeting would sure have been for nothing!”

4:00 P.M. EST

“Oh the humanity! Oh the humanity! It is official! It is official! Richmond and Newport News, one once our capital and the other once our most prosperous industrial hub, have both been hit by nuclear weapons! Nuclear Weapons! Two of our most prized cities are dust! Our lines to Richmond have gone dead! Dead! Whether President Washington and the rest of our government have managed to survive is unknown. We can only hope they did! We desperately need leadership in this trying time! Speaking of which, Georgia governor Oscar Stevens went on a number of televisor networks and stated that if the central government was not declared safe within 24-hours, he would declare the army units in Georgia to be under his command and make use of emergency powers. Berlin and Moscow have also been destroyed by nukes! Nukes! No word on who did it either! Rumors state that border skirmishes occurred in Poland, East Prussia and Finland between Prussia and Russia, allegedly leading to the nuclear attacks. Another rumors state that Romanov ordered all out invasion of Europe striking at not only the aforementioned Prussian regions, but also Romania and Galicia-Lodomeria, both regions of the Empire, as well as Italian Greece. Whatever happened, the Romanov Family is assumed to be dead. Only seven years away from 400 years of rule, and it all came to this. No word on what became of the Kaiser and the House of Hohenzollern-Wettin either. Our sources seem to have no opinion on weather said royal family and the rest of the Prussian government made it to some underground bunker or whether they went up in dust with the rest of Berlin! Whatever the case, we hope for more news from Europe soon!”

4:47 P.M. EST

“People of Columbia the situation becomes more and more dire by the second! More news coming in as we speak! One of our phone lines from the Prussian city of Königsberg states that the aforementioned city has been mobilized to face a potential Russian invasion, and that the local government under Mayor Adolph Strauss has things under control! All of our lines to Russian cities have gone dead, so only God knows whether the Ruskies marched into Europe or not! Whatever the case, governments in Europe appear to be collapsing as we speak! We have phone lines to a number of European cities, and its all the same. Local monarchs, dukes, governors and the like are attempting to keep the peace by taking full control over their jurisdictions as the central governments of Europe appear to be withering away! We can only imagine what kind of concussion and bloodshed is currently unfolding!”

5:42 P.M. EST

“Almost two hours and still no words from the bunker in Richmond. No news from Newport News either!”

6:01 P.M. EST

“More news from Europe! The chaos continues to unfold! A number of violent uprisings broke out in the Tripartite Imperial state of Iberia! Catalan separatists began rioting in Barcelona and surrounding cities only a few hours ago as contact with Paris went dead. There are also reports of similar violent and chaotic instability in the Basque country and in Portugal, especially in the cities of Lisbon and Oporto. In Santiago, Galician separatists look to the streets as well, though things do not seem to have escalated there just yet. Probably will soon though. Viewers, it seems as if the two-hundred year reign of the Bonaparte dynasty is coming to an end.”

6:37 P.M. EST

“O glory bee! Word has been received from Richmond. Congressman James deMille has contacted our station via a telephone in the bunker complex under Richmond. As of now, we don't have his exact words on record, but he says that most of the government managed to make it down into the bunkers complex before the bomb detonated! Folks, they knew Richmond was in danger. However, President Washington is nowhere to be found! Perhaps he made it into another part of the bunker complex! Perhaps he flew to some other haven! We can only hope my viewers. We can only hope. As for the most of the rest of the Washington family, they are all on vacation in Imperial Porto Rico [10]. They have been there since this weekend, and the President was planning on joining them sometime later this week. What a time to take a vacation! Anyways, what is going on in Porto Rico, and the rest of the Caribbean for that matter, is as of yet unknown. We can only hope that the family is doing okay.”

6:59 P.M. EST

“Well my viewers, I have a message sent to me straight from Governor Stevens! Stevens has just been authorized from the Government Bunker in Richmond to make use of his emergency powers and bring the Confederate Military in Georgia under his wing. In this time of crisis, Stevens controls the state, its military and its media. In the face of this crisis, our news broadcast will no longer be able to air. All broadcasts and notifications on the unfolding Second World War/Nuclear War will be brought to you by select stations owned by the government of Georgia. All other stations are being shut down. Stevens states “I have been given permission by the remnants of the central government in Richmond, in this time of unthinkable crisis, to seize the media and use it to warn and inform our citizens about the unfolding crisis and how to help them survive it. All stations save for state owned stations being used for the aforementioned purposes are being shut down. In a time of crisis such as this, there is no time for frivolous diversion. We must survive and weather the storm. Only after that can we worry about the things we took for granted. I don't know how long we'll have to go through this, but If we are, we need to have our priorities in check.” Godspeed Governor! Protect this state and her people! Well my viewers, it with sadness that I, and the rest of the team her at Channel 2 News, say goodbye. May God have mercy on us all! May God have mercy on us all!”


This transcript you have just read was discovered in 2094 (88 years after the bombs fell) by members of an archaeological team working for Phillip McCoy, leader of the Federation of American States. The team discovered this transcript while exploring the ruins of Atlanta, and more specifically, found in a tin box in a bunker under the ruins of Atlanta's CBC Building. Some pages of the transcript seem to be missing, but however wrote it (no name was found on the transcript) seemed to keep in the tin box as a means of preserving it for future generations, so they could see what things were like the day the bombs fell. If that was the case, the transcript certainly did its job, giving valuable information to archaeologists and historians of the 2090's and 22nd century. As of the 2110's, the transcript lies in the files of the Archival Building of the Federated Empire of the Americas (FEA).


[1] Gilgamesh Dalton was mentioned in the "Cure for the Betters of Society" chapter of the timeline.

[2] Late-night talk shows ITTL began in the Southron/Columbian nations, the first being the Late Show with Benny Jackson in 1953, which ran until the begging of the World War. After the war, NUSA stations began to imitate the late-night talk show and began making a number of their own, the first being Night Time with Willard Jensen in 1960. Late-night talk shows returned to new Columbia televisor stations in 1976 with the formation of the Confederacy of Columbia.

[3] In the years after the establishment of the LASR, late-night talk shows took a more serious and less comedic turn, reflecting the attitudes of time, what with all the fear of impending nuclear doom. Unsurprisingly, people became tired of late-night talk shows after this, and Jimmy Masterson's show was on of the first to be cancelled on November 30, 1999, after fifteen years on the air.

[4] Born in Bulloch, Georgia (OTL's Jackson, Mississippi) on June 22, 1940, Stuart J. Williams was host of the CBC's Channel 2 Afternoon News from 1989 up until 2006.

[5] The Southron nations began founding their own talkiebox stations in the late-1890's with the advent of said invention. With the establishing of CEMA in 1925, all of the individual stations merged to form the Columbian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), headquartered in Newport News, Virginia.

[5] Abbreviation for Confederacy of Columbia Military.

[6] IITL Paul Reuter stays in Germany, IITL the Rheinbund, and founds his news agency in the Rheinish capital of Frankfurt. Reuter also remains Jewish, due to the Rheinbund's Napoleonic laws allowing for religious toleration, Jews included.

[7] Messier is a fictional character. Meanwhile, the real-life Sarkozy is Marshall of France, having seen action in UN peacekeeping missions in Central America and Mexico, the French invasions of the Sikh Empire and Ceylon in the 1970s, and again in UN peacekeeping missions in Nepal and Tibet.

[8] OTL's Jakarta. ITTL the name was kept by the white protestant minority-rule government of the Republic of Indonesia. IITL it is still the capital of Indonesia.

[9] The Minister of Iberia, the Minister of Spain until 1958, is an office comparable to the First Minister of Scotland. There are also First Ministers in the other constituent states of the Tripartite Empire.

[10] IITL, Puerto Rico, known IITL's Anglophone nations as Porto Rico, became a French colony in 1827 following the collapse of the Spanish Empire. The local culture remains dominant, but some aspects of French culture do seep into the local culture. By the 20th century, the Imperial colony of Porto Rico became a popular vacation spot.

A Timeline of Madnessverse​

By Zoidberg12

13.8 Billion Years Ago
The Big Bang occurs, thus creating both the universe we live in, sometimes known as OTL (Our Timeline or Original Timeline) and the universe of "What Madness is This?", known as the "Madnessverse". These universes are two distinct and separate universes from the get-go. However the Madnessverse remains a carbon copy our our universe for centuries upon centuries of history. Everything is the same. However, this all begins to change in the middle of the 18th Century, when the first changes in the Madnessverse's history begin to occur.

Excellent work, Zoidberg.:) I kind of knew that the untimely death of Daniel Shays had something to do with this timeline, since Shays' Rebellion was one of the main factors in scrapping the Articles of Confederation, which still continued until the collapse of the United States ITTL. I also might contribute something to this thread in the near future.

Thanks! :D I knew Shay's Rebellion not happening was a POD since I first read the timeline when it was new two years ago! Great minds think alike.

Okay, I'm still working on the timeline of events (still need to go back to the last two posts and edit some minor things here and there), but in the coming days I'll be posting some short stories, biographies, book snipets such as the one below, among many other things.

This is something I decided to write based on the alternate ending of the timeline. This is stuff only touched upon in the main timeline, so I decided to expand upon it. Honestly, the more I wrote this, the more I wanted the NUSA dominated world to be destroyed by a meteor strike or aliens or something. :p Anyways, enjoy!

The March of Conquest

Excerpts from Manifest Destiny: Stage Four (1974-2014) by James Alan Rockford, Shicagwa University Press, October, 2014

In October of 1974, the old world lay in shambles as a result of the recently ended European War of Succession. […] The NUSA, mostly unaffected by the war, had come to fill the gap in the new power vacuum on the world stage and further fulfill her Manifest Destiny. The NUSA had in fact already begun doing so on August 29th, 1974, when American armies stationed in Liberia began the invasions of a number of nearby European colonies in Western Africa, which were now separated from their shattered mother countries. […] The Republican Union of South Africa, one of the NUSA’s staunchest allies, followed suit. […] By New Year’s Day of 1975, the NUSA and her armies had completely occupied Prussian Nigeria, Prussian Gabon, Italian Senegal, the coast of Imperial Northwest Africa and Imperial Morocco, as well as the aforementioned Pacific colonies. Military campaigns by the American armies were continuing in Russian Alyaska, Prussian Congo, Prussian Angola and French Algeria. […] Meanwhile, Europe itself lay in a nuclear ruin. […] With the state of affairs as it was that New Years’, President Oswald met with his general staff in Philadelphia to decide what exactly to do next. The Alyaska Campaign remained a priority, and to make things more complex the campaign was not going as expected. […] However, as General Carter J. Herman pointed out during the conference, what little order currently existed in Siberia was quickly collapsing. As a direct reuslt, reinforcements would stop pouring in from Siberia out to Alyaska, which would make the American conquest of the region much easier in the near-future. […] Oswald and the General Staff agreed to invade certain targets in Europe within no less than a year's time. Invasions of Japan and Manchuria were also approved for some undetermined point in time in the upcoming year of 1976. […] The fate of Peru remained a hot button issue, due the likelihood of the country still holding nuclear weapons. […] In the end, an invasion of Peru was being planned and scheduled for no latter than 1990. […]

By April 1st, 1975, the Alyaska War had grounded to a halt, and a long stalemate had begun. NUSA armies had made in no further than the Mackenzie River in the north and a month previously were pushed back by Russian armies just a few miles away from Glacier Bay, a city the American armies under General Alistair Sturgess were determined would not fall into Russian hands again. […] Meanwhile in Africa, the coast of Algeria had been completely subjugated, the NUSA armies deciding to leave the wild south of the country alone. The eponymous campaigns continued on in the Congo and Angola, which due to tropical disease and stiff resistance on the part of European settlers and natives alike, proved tough nuts to crack. […] Nevertheless, Oswald and the General Staff decided the time had come to strike Europe for the first time. On April 16th, NUSA armies, made up mostly of marines, landed at Jutland, the coast of Portugal and Gibraltar. […] An invasion of Norway and Sweden began on May 20th, an invasion which was more than welcomed by the pro-American far-right in both nations.

[…] The NUSA’s only major obstacle to conquering Europe, besides nuclear fallout, was the West European Confederacy, a confederation of European states ranging from Madrid to Hamburg, formed on May 1st, 1976 by the 67 year-old French World War General Jacques Pierre Durand. Durand was a veteran of the Western Front and had shown great bravery leading his men against the Prussian Army. […] He was also a close of friend of the late General Charles de Gaulle. […] On May 1st, the same day the Confederacy itself was established by him, Durand declared himself "President of the Confederacy", with near-absolute powers. […] Durand formed the WEC in response to the NUSA’s recently begun invasion of Europe. […] Durand had visions of unifying what remained of Spain, France Germany, Italy and other Western European nations into a strong confederacy opposed to expansion on the part of the NUSA. He predicted he and his successors could unify what was left of Western Europe by 2010 had “all moved smoothly”. As fate would have it, this was not to be.

By October of 1976, over a year and a half after the First Invasion of Europe, things had very much changed. The Congo, or at least the areas not affected by nuclear fallout around the Congo River Basin, and Angola had been pacified, though sporadic resistance continued well into the 1980s. […] Oswald ordered the invasion of Japan and Manchuria from military bases in Korea on October 14th. Japan was a nuclear wasteland, which made the islands both an easy target and a hard target for the invading American armies. On one hand, the people were too demoralized to put much of a fight, yet nuclear fallout made sure that when invading much of the country the invading armies had to be wearing Hazmat suits and similar wear when on the march and in the fight. The Invasion of Japan ended on December 15th, 1976, America controlling the country mostly through military bases. […] Manchuria, surprisingly, proved a much easier target and was conquered by the end of October, though resistance on the part of Han Chinese and Manchus alike continued for some months. The formerly Russian city of Vladivostok, founded in 1905 after the Missionary War, was renamed Ailestown in honor of retired General and World War hero Jurgen Ailes. […]

[…] The Zoning Act of 1980 was signed into law by President Oswald on August 1st, 1980. The law established a system of Zones of Control (ZOC) and Police Zones (PZ) in newly conquered territories. Zones of Control were areas firmly under American control and were eligible to become territories if the President and Military found it suitable to do so. Zones of Control were areas under heavy Millitary/ORRA control. […] Newly conquered territories becomes Police Zones, then Zones of Control, then Territories, then States. […]

[…] By October, 1984, a full ten years after the European War of Succession had ended, much of Western Africa, the Congo River Basin, the Pacific Islands, Japan, Manchuria, Eastern Siberia, Scandinavia, Jutland, the islands of the Baltic Sea, the coast of Portugal, Gibraltar, Algeria and Tripolitania were under NUSA control. […] The Alyaska War had gained quite a bit of traction. By October, 1984, most of the region was occupied by the NUSA Army, save for the most rural interior regions and a number of off-shore islands, islands in the hands of numerous warlords, which the High Command ordered be conquered at some later point. […] Durand had died of natural causes in his private capital two years previously. His successor was Antione Rimbaud, a veteran of the World War on the Eastern Front, fighting alongside General Von Brunau against the Prussians, Romanians and Bulgarians. […] The Peruvian-American War began on July 10th, 1981, and would end until 1986. […]

Shicagwa, Iowai, Republican Union (OTL's Chicago, Illinois, United States of America)

It was a cloudy day in Shicagwa, the hustling and bustling metropolis of the western Republican Union. Charles Goodyear II sat calmly in the velvet chair at his desk in his luxurious office at Colonel Goodyear Enterprises headquarters, smoking a Sumatran cigar. On the wall behind him was a portrait of his father, painted back in '86 by Allan Pinkerton, the famous Scotch painter, God bless his soul. To his immediate right were two busts, one of Willard Crawford and the other of Aaron Burr II, both in Greco-Roman style togas, and a window overlooking the city of Shicagwa. Well, the good looking part anyways. To his immediate right was a glass cabinet filled with Native American artifacts from Chersonesus, Iowai, Imperial California and Mexico, a framed reproduction of the Declaration of Independence, and a banner that belonged to a Mexican Infantry Battalion defeated at the Battle of Cozumel, a personal gift from First Consul Custer for his 34th birthday. To his front was a small couch for guests and over it a large painting depicting Aaron Burr II's Martyrdom at Valley Forge, the artist whose name escaped him at the moment. On his desk were a number of things both practical and decorative; a ball-point pen, a miniature globe, an ashtray, a golden clock adorned with an Eagle, a box of cigars (the one he was smoking came from that), a bell for his servants, a note pad, a statuette of General Polk, a 1901 talkiebox, among others. The room was large and ornate, with walls of red and gold, fancy oil lights and a a fireplace and mantel to his farther left as ornate as any owned by the hated House of Bonaparte.

Charles Goodyear II looked at his pocket watch. "Ten more minutes until that damn appointment!" he thought harshly to himself. The multimillionaire CEO of Colonel Goodyear Enterprises was about to turn forty in less than a fortnight. "Forty. Forty!" He couldn't believe it. He just couldn't believe it. Not just that he was going to be forty soon. He'd been staring at the small calendar on his desk for over a minute. "May 9th." he though solemnly to himself. Five years, half a decade has passed since that fateful day. The day his pops kicked the bucket. "Kicked the bucket? More like fell off a blimp a hundred something miles to his doom." the younger Goodyear though smugly to himself once again. He knew he did the deed, but not another living soul knew, so what did it matter? Even if anyone did suspect something, he could always call on the friendly neighborhood ORRA man to come to the poor sap's house and arrest for him for slander or something like that. "Only me and Jehovah know, and I'm willing to answer to the big guy for what I did!"

He remembered it all very well. When the whole thing was said and done, he was top dog of the one of the biggest, most successful companies on earth. This was the same company that brought the Union out of the gutter and gave this ungrateful 20th century world so many of the innovations it was taking for granted. Yes, his father’s death has been quite convenient for the younger Goodyear. "Gotta hand to you Pops..." Goodyear whispered to himself and he looked behind him at his father's portrait and puffed out some smoke. "You laid a great foundation for me to make something of myself". Goodyear knew he had done the right thing five years back, well, right for himself anyway. When he heard from Dr. Hansson, his father's personal physician, back in '99 that pops would likely live to be at least 110, he knew he couldn't just sit, lollygag and wait for doomsday any longer.

As Goodyear continued smoking and waiting for his appointment, a ring came from just outside the door. "Come in!" Goodyear shouted. His negro butler, the ever faithful Cicero, came in. "Mister Goodyear." he said rather eloquently. "Mister Garfield his running late. His autocarriage broke down outside of town." Goodyear pondered the matter over a second and said; "Very well. Telegraph his company in Rockford, saying that if hes not here by three at the latest, the appointments off! I'm a busy, busy man!"

"Your orders Sir." Cicero replied. He then left the room and closed the door. "James Garfield, late to this appointment out of all of them?! That won't do at all!" Goodyear ranted to himself as he threw down his cigar in his ashtray and forcefully opened a right-side drawer, looking for some important papers. He found said papers, put them on his desk and turned on the talkiebox. "This is Gregory Hightower on Uncle Sam's TalkieBox Station, live from Philadelphia!" Goodyear started smoking his cigarette again. "The time is 3:30 PM in Philadelphia and 2:30 PM in Shicagwa. Our show this afternoon is "King Lear", coming in thirty minutes, but first the National News! Two Buetlists were arrested in Newburgh, New York for distributing seditious literature. The two men, James Crawford and Melvin Gibb, are currently in custody. 5,000 Union men, woman and children have signed up so far this year to emigrate to Liberia. The report comes...."

Just then another ring came from just outside and Goodyear turned the talkiebox off. "Open up!"

Cicero opened the door. He then walked over to Goodyear's desk and handed him a telegram. Goodyear took it from his servant and opened it up with a letter opener he had on his desk. "Good God!" he exclaimed. "Cicero, telegraph the Garfield Publishing Company in Rockford and tell them the apportionment with Mr. Garfield is postponed until tomorrow afternoon! Same time!" "Yes Sir." Cicero replied. He then left the room hastily, closing the door as he left.

Goodyear threw the telegraph envelope into the nearby trash-bin and put the telegraph itself into a drawer. "Good God." With that, he just sat in his chair and began to think the whole thing through.

Within about twenty minutes, another knock came at the door. Cicero opened the door once more, and in came Alice, Charles' wife of almost eleven years, wearing a fur coat and holding ever so gently their five year old son, Charles Goodyear III. "Cicero, take Charlie to the private room upstairs and do take care of him." Alice said softly. "Yes Miss." Cicero said as he left the room. Alice closed the door behind her and put her fur coat on the nearby coat rack.

"Hello my darling!" Charles Goodyear II said as he got up from his seat, put down his cigar, walked to his loving wife and spread his arms, ready to embrace her, which he of course did. "Thank you Honey!" Alice said. She was a young woman, only twenty-nine years of age, and was known both in and outside the Union for her beauty. She had long brunette hair, glowing blue eyes, soft cheeks, and a big smile.

Before she could speak, Goodyear put his two fingers over her lips and softly said; "Not a word." He then went on; "Honey I have important business to attend too. The Chief Consuls should be here within the hour!"

"Custer and Bryan themselves!? Is this true!?" Alice exclaimed.

"Yes my dear. Wait with our son or return to the hotel or the mansion or something or somewhere. This meeting is most important, and is supposed to be held in the utmost secrecy!"

"Okay Honey." She paused and sighed to herself. "I just hope to God the governments not going to send you off to some exotic middle of nowhere again!"

"Relax my dear. You enjoyed Hawaii didn't you? Look at me, that wasn't just about us. Heck, Charley the Third got some good, clean air down there! Helped him grow up good and all!"

"Yes. I did enjoy Hawaii. Since you mention it, I did notice how much our son enjoyed the place as well."

"See!" Goodyear responded happily. "Look, if I'm ever sent to one of our Union's overseas lands, I'll talk to the government about it all. But don't me mistaken!" He said suddenly and harshly. "I'll go where ever and when ever I'm needed! If it wasn't for me spending those four years in Hawaii, the place would have taken much longer to submit to our God-given occupation!"

"I understand Honey." Alice said harshly.

"I know you do dear. Anyways, as I was saying, I could arrange some things. Things such as a shorter stay wherever I'm sent, or, if that isn't at all possible, a villa for us and our child, just like the one in Honolulu!"

Alice looked awkwardly at her husband. Goodyear than said enthusiastically; "Whatever happens, we'll be ringing in nineteen-hundred and o'six in a nice, comfortable place, just like we do every New Years!"

"I hope you're telling the damned truth this time! This better not be Panama back in '98 all over again!"

"Calm down Dear! Who even knows if this is even about that. It could just be about my business endeavors and how they relate to the state or something of that nature. Look, whatever the case, we'll have to talk about this later!"

"You have a point dear." Alice replied, having calmed down considerably. "All right, I'll go check up on Charlie." With that, Alice Davidson Goodyear left the room and went upstairs. After his wife left the room, Goodyear walked slowly back his desk. He then sat in his chair, and began smoking his cigar once more. "Whatever they want to see me about, this better be important, and if I know our government, it will be!" he then thought to himself.
