As title says, what is AL's conflict in literature? If you don't understand, please see the reference below.
User control panel's main conflict is man vs technology, although it actually plays the role of "technology" here.

For Empress Park, as well as Premier Kato, I feel they both fit pretty firmly in the Man vs. Society conflict bracket, though admittedly there definitely feels like there's some room for their to be some Man vs. Self conflict, if I understand that bracket correctly.

Man Vs. Society, Man Vs. Man for Scott Lewis.
The Jamesian Republic is an allegory for the United States of America. It has 48 states like the USA did from 1912-1959 and the Stars and Stripes mean the same thing like they do in Real Life.

The Victoran "Empire" is a FFT Interstellar Alliance/Federation with a Roman and Gothic aesthetic that is engaged in a Great Crusade against 'the Enemy'. The setting is a horrid combination of 40k and Doctor Who. No, the Empire isn't oppressively imperialist. No, the Empire isn't British nor is it's name referencing Queen Victoria.
NS Stats are for nerds. I don't use them and neither should you (if you must, use stats as an indicator of the "average Civilized World"). With that said, according to this index, the Victoran Empire is a Tier 10, Level 8, Type 9 civilization with a Power Comparator of 3.9

Because "the Enemy" are literally created by Dark Gods.

We are a FT space federation, that uses the vastness of space, and our advanced technology, to create a post-scarcity economy, with robots and dinosaurs. The closest equivalent to our nation is the Culture, and the Sophons. The nation takes place in an a universe that was devastated by a nano-machine swarm 500 years ago.

For Alastair, he is definitely Man vs. Self- I mean, his addiction and recovery is, like the big event of Western Fardelshufflestein, and that's pretty obviously a conflict with the Self and personal vices. For Marie... I'm not so certain- I mean, you could say her conflict is primarily with Alastair, since his coma was a significant worsener of her life. But, maybe she could be Man vs Society, since the underlying issues of public morals and alcoholism, as well as having to manage a disfunctional nation, seem like societal problems.

On the face of it, Sven's conflict is pretty obviously man vs god. That's pretty much his entire purpose. However, should he achieve victory, the future compass suggests that he will find himself thrust into man vs no god, which seems much more interesting to me.
I'm curious if people can spot all the references in my timeline factbook.

Well, I'll certainly say that the one Roswell incident they're involved with is definitely a Man vs. Technology thing, but generally I'll say that Nova's more dealing with a Man vs. Society conflict- I mean, even ignoring the casual misgendering of the Americans, or even the way she's considered culturally contaminated, it sorta just feels like her story really is just an overarching (if perhaps underlying) conflict with society.

Man v. Author, except it's less of a combative relationship and more of a "how many people can Author put in Man's bed before the plot physically can't take any more"

Probably Man v. Man, given how conquest-drunk most of the Alkdorians are.

From a glance, I'd say man vs man due to the war between the nation and outside clans.

The formerly wartorn nation keeps a facade of normalcy and order while enjoying the societal and cultural decadence that marks the new Roaring Twenties.

I'd say its some combination of Man v. Man and Man v. Self.

A major aspect of Zitravian history is a series of devaststing wars (one of which was nuclear in nature), many of which Miroslavsky fought in. This is obviously Man v. Man.

Though that may all be behind him now, he seems to still struggle with the after-effects (such as PTSD) in away that could be described as Man v. Self (something that seems projected onto the majority of the population as well)
