    Have you ever asked yourself, Damn, I wanna know the most cursed timeline Bennett cold ever make? Because if so, welcome to the first WIP of Trotsky On The Peoples' Throne, where Trotsky not only becomes head of the USSR, but expands his influence across Europe and Asia, causing a Cold War that is fairly hot, which the USA and Friends lose.
    Note that a lot of this is still WIP - including Portugal not being colored in as part of the EU, the Balkans being an undefined hellscape as I decide whether to have a reactionary Kingdom of Yugoslavia or Titoist Yugoslavia, and much more!

    Was/is there some (shorter?) term for Central Powers?

    here's a teaser of a map combining two SCPs. Not the famous "bad guy lol!!!!", but two historical ones.

    I'll give you a hint- the POD takes place in the forbidden city, 1900.

    ngl, I wasn't aware of many historical SCPs other than that one about the historical book that continues to write itself the longer it is read, and the things being written becoming progressively more true, with the implication being that eventually, if people continue reading it, the super-society of genocidal unstoppable war machines will retroactively become part of modern life and conquer humanity.

    Got sidetracked and decided to start a 1980s punk map. Loosely influenced by B_Munro's 1980s Retrofuture.

    The big three powers are America, USSR, and Japan. America is a populous, powerful, corporate-dominated leviathan that rules the roost in much of the world, though it faces some challenges from the other contenders.

    The USSR settled on an odd combination of Brezhnevism and Perestroika...though the Gorbachev phase did lead to Europe going free. It somewhat recovered from those losses, and re-adopted a confrontationist posture in much of the developing world. Similar to OTL China.

    Japan never underwent the Lost Decade as we know it. It is bar none the world's most technologically advanced society, and it has one of the world's highest per capita GDPs. It has also fulfilled its geopolitical imperative by controlling maritime routes to its petroleum and raw material suppliers.

    Done in Equal Earth projection.

    ok, that one is involved with the 001, but it’s not one of the skips involved (ok, kinda, but not one of the major two)

    Mega Internationale under Trotsky (and later other Trotskyites), so essentially that, yes.

    All of this will make sense in context, I promise.

    why would Trotsky go with the modern borders for the ASSRs and SSRs? Wasn't that more of a Stalin thing?
