Puritan World

A somewhat more ASB and quite dystopian TL created by Tony Jones.

Changes in the English Civil War lead to the Parliamentarians fleeing to North America, founding a New Commonwealth there under the descendants of Cromwell as Lord Protectors. England, Scotland and Ireland remain wracked with wars of religion under unpopular Stuart rulers, and do not take a major role in the growth of European dominance. Instead, France, the Netherlands and Russia are the major powers. The New Commonwealth eventually expands to include all of North America, Iceland, Greenland, the British Isles, and much of Australasia and the Pacific. In the 20th century a cold war develops between the royalist Octuple Alliance and the New Commonwealth, which explodes into a hot war in 1996. Technological development is somewhat behind OTL, with 1990s technology being roughly equivalent to that of the 1920s and some sciences (cosmology, medicine, advanced electronics) being nerfed or banned altogether. The world population numbers just 1 billion by 1996.
