IC | THEME



Politics is not a game, but a serious business.
- Winston Churchill



OP: Demorvian
CO-OP: Duestchstien



Introduction

Welcome to 2020: An Alt-Future RP. The lore behind this RP is basically that a serious of coups, civil wars and collapses in the 1990s have significantly shifted the geopolitical stage. The USA and USSR have both collapsed, while some ideologies reach unprecedented popularity in some places. The last of these conflicts would end in 2018. By then, over 40 million people had died. So, to show the full history, here's a timeline of events.



Timeline


1992: The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, as well as Yugoslavia have collapsed by now. The cold war has ended. While many in the United States celebrated, others are scheming. That years US election had seen various far-right, far-left, and separatist parties gain up to 100 electoral votes across the US. Bill Clinton manages to win the elections by only around 55 electoral votes.

1993: Bill Clinton is now President of the United States. Things only get worse during his presidency. Hurricane Andrew devastates Florida, the world trade center is bombed, and the branch davidian compound in Waco, Texas is seized by the FBI. The Waco siege in particular causes citizens to start claiming that the federal government is starting to violate American Freedoms. Militias start popping up across the Southern States. Racial tensions within the nation are also growing. Meanwhile on the other side of the Pacific. The Communist Party of China is starting to split between moderates and hardliners.

1994: More militias pop up across the US. Both the US and Canadian governments start to be concerned about the growing tension and hatred across the US. More Americans are starting to go against the federal government. China also faces political tension as a new wave of riots and protests cause martial law to be declared in Beijing and Shanghai. Quebec is starting to push for complete independence from Canada. Apartheid ends in South Africa.

1995: The Oklahoma City bombing causes the government to begin persecuting militia groups across the US. An executive order repeals the second amendment. October is the breaking point for the US and Canada as the Confederate States of America, Quebec, California, and Cascadia declare independence. The Second American Civil War begins. All US troops are forced to head back to the US. Hardliners successfully take full control of China, inciting mass protests in the process.

1996: North Korea declares war on South Korea, taking advantage of the lack of US troops. China sides with North Korea while Japan sides with South Korea. A Communist coup occurs in Germany, resulting in the creation of the Germanic Socialist Union. The GSU declares war on the Low Countries, France, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Czechia, Slovakia, Lithuania, and Poland. The UK declares war on the GSU. 3 New factions enter the Second American Civil War. The United Socialist States of America, The Republic of Nevada, and The White American Commonwealth. Mexico erupts in to civil war as drug cartels and several radical movements declare war on the Mexican government. California annexes the Baja peninsula.

1997: India and China both enter civil wars. The People's Republic of Dravidia declares independence from India. East Turkestan, Tibet, Inner Mongolia, and Manchuria declare independence from China. Taiwan declares war on China. The Second Korean war had already ended in North Korean victory as well as Japan surrendering. The DPRK invades Manchuria. Alaska declares independence from the US. Hawaii has joined California. Germany has conquered the Low Countries, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Czechia, and Slovakia. A fascist coup occurs in Italy. The new fascist Italy declares war on the GSU. Poland is on the verge of surrendering. Britain keeps Hong Kong. Pakistan's economy collapses.

1998: Poland surrenders to Germany. Canada has taken over Michigan in order to create a refugee zone for Americans migrating to Canada. The US government prepares to evacuate to Puerto Rico. All States except for Virgina, West Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware have fallen. Most of the US armed forces have surrendered. The GSU have reached the outskirts of Paris. The Italian army has kept the Germans at bay through the alps. Manchuria has been annexed by the DPRK. China has completely collapsed. The People's Liberation Army establishes a military junta out of Beijing. Ireland enters a civil war between the Republic and a Communist uprising. The UK splits Ireland with the Communists.

1999: The Federal Government surrenders, ending the Second American Civil War. Peace agreements are also in the works in Europe and China. The Indian civil war has entered a stalemate. The Mexican civil war rages on.

2000: 3 treaties are signed. The Treaty of Las Vegas, The Treaty of Bordeaux, and The Treaty of Chonqing. California, Alaska, Cascadia, The CSA, The USSA, The HAC, Quebec, and Alaska gain independence. Canada gains Michigan. The federal government is exiled to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. In Europe, Germany gains all pre-1914 borders, Austria, Liechtenstein, and German-Speaking areas of Switzerland. France is split between a Democratic West, and a Communist East. Communist puppets are also created in Czechoslovakia, Benelux, and Poland. Italy gains Italian-Speaking areas of Switzerland. In Asia, Mongolia annexes Inner Mongolia. Taiwan annexes Hainan, Guangdong, and Fujian. Tibet and East Turkestan gain independence. China is now under a military dictatorship. Putin has taken power in Russia.

2001: The Indian civil war ends in the division of India between Communist Dravidia and Democratic India. Al-Qaeda carries out a terrorist attack against the world trade center in New York City, part of the White American Commonwealth.

2005: The Mexican civil war ends after the Mexican army gained control of Mexico City. They created a military junta, just like in China. California does keep the Baja peninsula. Tensions start to rise between the CSA and the USSA over parts of Southern Nebraska.

2011: A series of revolutions occur across the Arab World, resulting in the toppling of regimes and in the case of Syria and Yemen, complete civil war. Iraq under Saddam Hussein launches an incursion into Syria to both stabilize the region, and to gain power for Iraq as a whole. A devastating earthquake and tsunami strike Japan, resulting in major damage to life and property.

2014: The Russian Federation under Vladimir Putin invades Ukraine and Belarus. The Germanic Socialist Union declares war on Russia, sparking the Eastern War. It's mostly the GSU and it's puppets against Russia.

2018: The Communist Party of the USSA begins a series of purges, as well a 'Social Revolution', which is similar to the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Tensions between the CSA and the USSA continue to heat up. The only thing stopping a war is mutually assured destruction by thermonuclear warfare. The first Olympics since the 1990s are held in Vladivostok. The Eastern War ends in a stalemate and armistice.

2020: It is now 2020. Japan wants revenge on the DPRK. China wants to take back its former lands. Tensions in the former US are rising. The rest of Europe hates the GSU and its puppet states. The Irish Soviet State starts to fund rebels to take over the rest of Ireland. A World War seems inevitable. But the question is, who will fire the first shot?

Well, this happened because after a failed attempt at a corporatocracy, Serbia was left with a pseudo-nationalist government which was incompetent to say the least. Following a revolution, a slightly authoritarian social democracy was established. More nations were incorporated as time went on. Now it's slightly-self sustaining and technologic advanced.

So, why did the USA suddenly implode at the height of their power? There’s not really an explanation given for it, all you said is that all of a sudden the USA is more politically diverse, militias form, and magic civil war. Same with China, with regions magically declaring independence, even though their regional governments are under strict government control, and places like Manchuria aren’t even ethnically/culturally distinct to want independence. Same goes for Germany, which suddenly has a Trotskyite coup (even though Trotskyism isn’t popular at all in Germany, and their military wasn’t politically active) and invades all of their neighbors and wins despite having a weaker military than France IRL.

I don’t mean to be rude, but it seems like you haphazardly chose a bunch of random things to add to your world without thinking much about it. It’s hard to get invested into the world of a RP when you stretch suspension of disbelief this far. I understand you presumably want a chaotic or unique world, but in that case I think you should choose a much further back point of divergence.

North Korea owns the entire Korean Peninsula and Manchuria, they are basically just Korea. Also, you have to have a reservation app to get reserved.

Following a revolution, a slightly authoritarian social democracy was established. More nations were incorporated as time went on. Now it's slightly-self sustaining and technologic advanced.

I can tell it's not finished in North America. And that the borders overall are somewhat sloppy. But not bad for a first attempt. Keep working on it though.

Yeah, it might be the map. Or it could be me.
Anyway, I will try with America. Might be a tad tricky.

So, Germany has "Radical Totalitarian Trotskyism" ... What next, Liberal Stalinism? Planed Smithism? Authoritarian Anarcho-Syndicalism?

Among the big 4 names of Communism: Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Trotzki, Marx and Trotzki are radical Anti-Authoritarians, just one step more organized then Anarcho-Syndicalism. Lenin was more authoritarian then the two and Stalin was at the end of the scale outright totalitarian. They tried to kill each other over those differences.
You could coin "Totalitarian Leninism" although that raises the question why you are not calling it Stalinism (or Maoism) but one could answer that by saying that Lenin's ideas about internationalism, that also differed from Stalin's ideas of "Sovjet only Communism" are very central to the German Communist branch of this timeline and therefor they regard themselves more of a Leninist then a Stalinist although by the degree of political freedom, they are certainly even more totalitarian.
Totalitarian Trotskyism however is an oxymoron.

And since Palmetto already said, that Trotzki was not particularly popular in Germany: Yes, Even if they would agree with everything Trotzi thought, they would have called it Marxism or Leninism.

The Palmetto wrote:So, why did the USA suddenly implode at the height of their power? There’s not really an explanation given for it, all you said is that all of a sudden the USA is more politically diverse, militias form, and magic civil war. Same with China, with regions magically declaring independence, even though their regional governments are under strict government control, and places like Manchuria aren’t even ethnically/culturally distinct to want independence. Same goes for Germany, which suddenly has a Trotskyite coup (even though Trotskyism isn’t popular at all in Germany, and their military wasn’t politically active) and invades all of their neighbors and wins despite having a weaker military than France IRL.

I don’t mean to be rude, but it seems like you haphazardly chose a bunch of random things to add to your world without thinking much about it. It’s hard to get invested into the world of a RP when you stretch suspension of disbelief this far. I understand you presumably want a chaotic or unique world, but in that case I think you should choose a much further back point of divergence.


I mean, it would probably work better if it was set a bit into the future while following along the original timeline (for the most part...).
At the moment, the US is gradually weakening. A white ethnostate would make more sense in recent times with the rise of the alt-right. Probably the same with the confederacy (but this time with just regular nationalists). Not too sure about the USSA, but that could be a reaction to increasing power of the right (although the US has had a history of being...not too fond of socialism COUGH COUGH FREE HELICOPTER RIDES COUGH). Guess the eco state could work with increasing public concern with climate change.
Concerning Germany...yeah, I didn't really know much about Trotsky, his liberal views and Germany's views on him. They could go left wing as yet again a retaliation against the right after seeing what their governments are like. Speaking of the right, Italy already is heading that direction with a right wing and a populist party being in charge. Russia's already quite right wing (why wouldn't they be?). Yeah, not buying Poland. Going red would be the last thing they would do.
Don't know enough about India to comment.
China probably wouldn't collapse like that either. But then again, with Hong Kong...

And that's my thoughts and why I think this should be set in a slightly alterned modern day.

Government Structure(At least one paragraph long):

The Norwegian monarch is the monarchical head of state of Norway, which is a constitutional and hereditary monarchy. The Norwegian monarchy can trace its line back to the reign of Harald Fairhair and the previous petty kingdoms which were united to form Norway; it has been in unions with both Sweden and Denmark for long periods.

The present monarch is King Harald V, who has reigned since 17 January 1991, succeeding his father, Olav V. The heir apparent is his only son, Crown Prince Haakon. The crown prince undertakes various public ceremonial functions, as does the king's wife, Queen Sonja. The crown prince also acts as regent in the king's absence. There are several other members of the Royal Family, including the king's daughter, grandchildren and sister. Since the dissolution of the union between Norway and Sweden and the subsequent election of a Danish prince as King Haakon VII in 1905, the reigning royal house of Norway has been a branch of the Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg branch of the House of Oldenburg; originally from Schleswig-Holstein in Germany, the same royal house as the Danish and former Greek royal families. In 1998, the Parliament was dissolved due to high tensions among Communists and Capitalists, which is why Norway became a neutral country. In 2000, they needed to form an alliance with the other Scandinavian countries, which is how the Scandinavian Defense Force came into origin.

The new Constitution of Norway grants important executive powers to the King, unlike the previous. Though the King's Council gets powers invested by the Constitution, the King gets the majority. The king may depose any member of the King's Council, though the King's Council must vote to depose the King for Heir Apparent.

Economic Policies:

The emergence of Norway as an oil-exporting country has raised a number of issues for Norwegian economic policy. There has been concern that much of Norway's human capital investment has been concentrated in petroleum-related industries. Critics have pointed out that Norway's economic structure is highly dependent on natural resources that do not require skilled labor, making economic growth highly vulnerable to fluctuations in the demand and pricing for these natural resources. The Government Pension Fund of Norway is part of several efforts to hedge against dependence on petroleum revenue.

Because of the oil boom since the 1970s, there has been little government incentive to help develop and encourage new industries in the private sector, in contrast to other Nordic countries like Sweden and particularly Finland. However the last decades have started to see some incentive on national and local government levels to encourage formation of new "mainland" industries that are competitive internationally. In addition to aspirations for a high-tech industry, there is growing interest in encouraging small business growth as a source of employment for the future. In 2006, the King formed nine "centers of expertise" to facilitate this business growth. Later in June 2007, the King contributed to the formation of the Oslo Cancer Cluster as a center of expertise, capitalizing on the fact that 80% of cancer research in Norway takes place in proximity to Oslo and that most Norwegian biotechnology companies are focused on cancer.

Foreign Relations:

Sweden -- Friendly, or in Alliance
Denmark -- Friendly, or in Alliance
Iceland -- Friendly, or in Alliance
