This is made even more impressive by the fact that one of the most powerful OTL radio stations based in Cincinnati barely reaches Chicago, but I'd imagine several hundred years of being reliant on radios for long-distance communication would cause their technology to be much better than the OTL.

IIRC though, the Texas Supermutants are Mariposa rather than Vault 87 or Institute. Which from my understanding, are a lot more intelligent and have a wider range of personalities - with many wanting to integrate with humans rather than murder/enslave them. So perhaps there might be a rivalry between the two races eventually, but I could be wrong.

You're not wrong about them being Mariposa, but I suppose I should've been more specific. I'm going kinda for the idea of multiple splintered groups of Attis remnants, with the one in contact with Shephard being more hardline mutant supremacists. /skip

The Near Islands were without a government for 5 years just because of a coffee-stain of the map. I think that's the strangest reason for not having government I've ever seen.

To be fair, at the time, it was just a random collection of Islands with a few hundred people. There were more important matters than "how do we organize these islands a bunch of Aleuts/Russians live in", what with the whole post-Civil War reconstruction

For some odd reason, some Semitic peoples arrived in Eamnha before the Celts did (or after?) and there evolved a language called Emnian, which is well... Semitic.

The Giant wolf (Kanido Sherechiansis) can run at 90kph, making it the second fastest land animal, and this is running not sprinting, for comparison the African wild dog can maintain a running pace on the order of 50kph with sprints of 70kph, and they basically never lose a prey.

As a comparison the fastest horse is about 70kph and that's with a quarter horse. Basically if you absolutely, positively have to go to war, accept no other mount.

One thing I learned is that Benin-Wuri is actually located in where historical Benin actually was, rather than where the French decided Benin was supposed to be. On a different note, given how a middle class is supposed to work, most of somewhere between 25-66% of Benin-Wuri's population is white which means it has, uh, a larger Swedish or Norwegian population than Sweden or Norway do in real life.

Well, for starters, we have their history from the 19th Century onwards, which is a fucking mess, especially on the 20th Century, where Spain itself somehow gets caught by France while it was doing its favorite passtime (that's right, the civil war) and has its government replaced with a puppet one, bringing into the mess that is this universe's Second World War. What the fuck?

Second of all, we have their entire shtick for "Pancerfare", which, let's be honest, just looks like Ixar took the entire basis for the, what was it, Girls und Panzer stuff? Yeah, Girls und Panzer. Took the entire basis, then just translated some parts of it to whatever the hell this Anglish-looking messy vocabulary swap is.

Last but not least, well, their entire legislation category of factbooks is... something, to say the least. From their not!Parliament (granted, they're pretty much a neo Danelaw of sorts, so why would they not be in, at the very least, in England?) to their politics dominated by their universe's equivalent of the Tories... a fucking wild ride.

Overall, brain hurt, please help.

First things first, I take a look at the factbook of this nation, and I immediately get bombarded by Civil War funnies. At first it looks relatively simple, so, the coup starts, people start rebelling, simple things that any history student would know right? Then I read further in... Oh. Oh god. So, let's recap. While the war looked relatively normal during its first stages, it quickly spiralled out of control. For one, there is no Nazi German support. Rather, just the Fascist Italians, who sent Spain automatic rifles and B-52 bombers, turning it into a shitfest.

Then it went even more downhill as the Soviets stepped in and dumped everything, and I do mean everything on the Republic's side, massively bolstering it. From Strategic Bombers of their own to fully-automatic weapons, the Republicans and Nationalists clashed with the might of thousands... but all things come to an end, as was demonstrated by Franco's loss in Guernica. This signalled the end of the Nationalist Rebellion... on paper. After Franco had surrendered, the Italian bombers, angry at the Republic, massacred hundreds of people by dropping bombs on them. All due to pettiness.

Basically, the Isle was always inhabited by people, but the first recorded ones were the Phoenicians and Carthaginians, which enjoyed a peaceful life until the Eamnian dark age occurred after the fall of Carthage and its trade routes.

(never really played Command and Conquer or RTS's in general)

The Soviet Union was the instigator of WWII in this timeline, using Sarin gas on German forces, and nuclear weapons on the UK and US. Moscow was nuked in retaliation, but the Soviets then invaded Spain and Portugal and occupied it for two years until the Azur Revolution of 1955.
