Yeah man, try having them actually IN your country. I drive by idiots with campaign signs in their front yard for 'em every day. I hear about them doing little marches about how 5G is causing COVID. Shit sucks.
It does raise a worrying spectre of what's going to fill the void left by NZ First. We're trading a racist grandad for an alt-right uncle.

Trump would nearly blow his lead against Reagan's VP in 1988. As much as Lee Atwater tried to tie Trump to Gary Hart or Jesse Jackson, enough voters trusted the business mogul and his conservative southern running mate. Their trust was perhaps misplaced. A bad recession combined with devastating foreign policy debacles in Iraq and Russia put President Trump in a position where he could be knocked off by a surprise primary challenger.

Jerry Brown would also win by narrow margins. His victory over a divided field made up of Bush's running mate during the last cycle, the controversial Massachusetts Governor who had won the endorsement of President Trump, and the Klansman Governor of Louisiana. Republican turnout was severely dampened by their nominee's pro-choice stance while Silber went on the trail complaining that President Trump had been "run out of office by political correctness." Duke would win his home state on election night. Brown led a pretty unremarkable administration. His major accomplishments (the Flat Tax, the Balance Budget Amendment, and the virtual end of welfare) had quickly been claimed by the Republican Congress. The power vacuum left in Iraq after Brown withdrew US troops only garnered him greater ire from Republicans.

Morry Taylor was a surprising choice for the Presidency. Having come out on top of a divided GOP field by distinguishing himself with protectionism and racebaiting the republics of China, Japan, and Korea - who he saw as America's biggest threats. Uniting the RNC by vowing a 'co-presidency' with Antonin Scalia, Taylor would make quick work of President Brown and Senator Lamm. Of course, governing is harder than campaigning. Although he would earn cheap points by striking at the UN following the cataclysmic Intervention in Zaire, he would at best be seen as a puppet for House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Vice President Scalia, cornered out of White House decision-making, announced that he would not be seeking a second term as VP in January, 2000.

Media mogul Ted Turner's election would cement the Democratic Party's shift to free trade neoliberalism. Despite his massive polling lead, Turner would almost sacrifice his chances in a gaffe where he said "good riddance" in response to an exodus of union workers to James Hoffa's campaign. President Turner was just getting settled into the presidency when a dirty bomb would destroy most of the National Mall in June, 2001. Within hours, Al-Qaeda had claimed responsibility for the attack and had done so using nuclear material extracted from the collapsing state of Pakistan. By the end of the year the United States would invade both Afghanistan and Pakistan in the hopes of tracking down Al-Qaeda's leaders and defeating Islamic fundamentalist political factions.

After all that American needed a general in charge. At least that's what the GOP would have you believe. Karl Rove's golden boy slammed President Turner for not doing enough to keep America safe (re: not invading Iran). A wartime America couldn't resist voting in a military leader, especially as President Turner faced increasing pressure from his left in the form of Al Sharpton's Independence Party entryists. President Wesley Clark launched the invasion of Iran in early 2006, the domestic internment camps opened in early 2007. As fortunes in Iran continued to worsen, domestic crackdowns heightened. President Clark sat vulnerable on his thrown of bayonets.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was quickly ushered through the Democratic primaries as an anti-war and anti-internment candidate (but not too anti). He would beat President Clark relatively handily as body bags and horror stories rolled in from Tehran and Casper. The Stock Market crashed in late 2009 and President Cuomo's subsequent Wall Street bailout was heavily criticized by nearly every facet of the American political world. The newly election Republican Congress would be unwilling to work with President Cuomo to pass a comprehensive stimulus bill and America would go into 2012 hurting.

Justice Clarence Thomas weathered the storm as the "more moderate" establishment candidate in the midst of a primary field dominated by new and radicalized Liberty Brigade politicians. His victory over President Cuomo was not all too surprising when it happened, either. Thomas led a relatively obscure administration. The economy sluggishly tried to recover and the most tangible way the President appeared in Americans' lives were through his ramped up 'law and order' policies.

Gates and McAfee promised exciting alternatives to the boring, mild-mannered authoritarian Clarence Thomas. Gates excited a collapsing middle America that desperately sought change and trusted his reliable persona while McAfee excited the young technologically adept radicals who had been hardened by Clark's War in Iran, Cuomo's War on the Poor, and Thomas and AG Scalia's resumed War on Drugs. In the end Gates would take it but McAfee would perform much better than expected. But as had become the norm, things would become a lot harder for Gates once in office. His relationship with congress quickly collapsed, America's right went wild with EmailGate conspiracies of high-profile Democrats organizing a child sex ring (these accusations were not helped by the arrests of former Secretary of Commerce Jeff Epstein and former VP Bill Richardson for human trafficking in 2017), and the globe was devastated by the Ebolavirus pandemic in 2019. Although Gates tried desperately to save face, he had 50,000 dead Americans to contend with.

Arizona Governor Steven Seagal had won in a landslide. Ties to Eurasian President Zhirinovsky be damned. As Seagal entered the Oval Office, he vowed to launch a crusade against Ebolavirus, 5G, pedophilia, and Islamic terrorism. In the Republic of China and the European Union - what was left of the Free World - people despaired.

News of the World-29 August 1941:

-the NRG and the WDGR continue to elude and scare the governments of Europe,both enraptured in magical isolating barriers that guarantees them protection from the outside world. Grand State Chief Esoteric Trebitsch-Lincoln‘s recent attempted astral invasion of Tibet has forced the Chinese Government to conduct peace treaties with Japan and the USSR in order to deal with this event properly,while in the WDGR Comrade Jogiches is considering what is the proper way to deal with Chief State Scientist Wilhelm Reich and his controversial Sexual Rays Machine. Half of the Party considers it a useful weapon against imperialist and Stalinist attacks,while others(including former retired Secretary General and mentor of Jogiches Rosa Luxemburg) consider it to be morally wrong and proof that Reich is ,quote,“a lunatic and a pervert who’s clearly only mostly interested in making his fucked up sexual fantasies a reality”,as Bertolt Brecht put it in one of his articles.

-the FGR’s Chief State Magician,Riki Volksbregg,announced to the Bundestag that Dr Mabuse has finally been caught by the police while trying and failing to rob the Ministry of Esoteric Arts and that the elusive Brotherhood of the Boot has been stopped from bombing Bonn and were cited to be heading towards the border with Denmark. The Ministry warned citizens to take care and avoid any contact with the Brotherhood,less they get infected with by them with mind radiation.Chancellor Cassirer assured the citizens of the Republic however not to panic and stay calm in face on danger,continuing their activities as normal.

Three more nuclear factories have been inaugurated meanwhile,along with a second Death Ray Base in response to the People’s Socialist French Government’s more aggressive actions lately and a new state TV channel for the newer parties to use for their political uses.

-in Spain,the new host of Marcellino Pan y Vino (Chief Super-powered Lawman of Spain and third most powerful person in charge politically in Spain along with the King and the Prime Minister) has shocked and confused political commentators,after it was revealed to be Eric Blair,known Anarchist MP and writer for The New Statesman. The Spirit of Marcellino assured the Parliament however that there were good reasons for his choice and that change must happen in a healthy democratic society,as Prime Minister Azaña said it in a more eloquent manner five years ago,proceeding to possess Mr Blair in the Constitutionally accepted manner and go doing what he must do.

[1] - Charles Edward Stuart had been rarely thought of for decades by the time of the birth of his son, James Edgar Stuart, in 1779 - although the boy was widely rumoured to have been fathered by the poet, Count Alfieri. The birth of a new heir to the Stuart claim attracted the attention of the French government, which added the elderly, gouty Charles 'III' to the complement of its expedition against the Isle of Wight as a distraction from the American Revolutionary War. A combined Franco-Spanish fleet descended on the island in August, with the intention of going on to cross the Solent and take the key naval base of Portsmouth. However, the Royal Navy was effective in harrying the supply lines of the invasion force and the allied force was beset with administrative bungles. Charles held court in Ryde for three weeks before the expedition returned to Le Havre in disgrace.

[2] - As the level of interest in the House of Stuart amongst the British populace was essentially zilch, that was where matters should have rested - but in 1809, Napoleon summoned the Young Pretender's widow to his court and asked her whether the man had any legitimate heirs. The putative Queen Mother replied that her son was then resident in Rome and was, furthermore, listed in all reputable editions of the Almanach de Gotha, at which point Napoleon did some basic research and found that she was indeed correct. The Younger Pretender was duly dispatched in a Dutch fishing vessel which sank in high seas off the coast of Arbroath.

[3] - James Edgar Stuart had, before his untimely death, had a son of his own with a member of a minor branch of the Malaspina family, who was now propelled into the limelight as Charles IV of England, Scotland and Ireland. The child was made unwelcome in the courts of Europe after the Congress of Vienna - both because of his links with the Napoleonic experiment and because the British were now one of the guarantors of peace on the Continent. After a stay in St Petersburg, Charles Henry Stuart settled in a villa in the northern end of Lazio, where he established himself as one of the foremost entomologists of the period. However, the duty of the House of Stuart called to him in the febrile year of 1848, when an uprising in Ireland seemed to indicate the creation of an independent Catholic state in Britain. However, it was not to be, and the largely liberal and republican Young Irelanders viewed the reactionary foreign interloper with suspicion when he arrived with several dozen antique muskets and proposals for uniforms based on those of the Papal Zouaves. Charles Henry Stuart escaped from the 'Battle' of Callan by hiding up an oak-apple tree, before scurrying out of the country.

[4] - Charles Henry Stuart's Irish adventure was not a complete wash-out, however - he gained a glimmer of military experience which he built upon in the service of the royalist forces of the Two Sicilies during the Risorgimento, and he also gained some contacts in the Irish nationalist movement. During a scientific trip to the USA, the Even Younger Pretender noted an outbreak of sectarian warfare to the north, and crossed the border at Niagara to take command of a Fenian force. The rebels, supported by American officers, initially held the inititiative against the unprepared militiamen ranged against them, but many lost heart when the King of Canada (as he called himself) was killed by a stray bullet at the Battle of Fort Erie.

[5] - The final scion of the House of Stuart, a descendant of Charles Henry by a Sicilian wife, was James Francis Robert Stuart. James was not so much a soldier of fortune as a soldier of principle, fighting for the Whites in the Russian Civil War, the Nationalists (specifically the Carlists) in the Spanish Civil War, the Cristeros in Mexico and even the Ethiopians against the Fascist Italians, whom he considered to be dangerously socialistic and irreligious. It was, however, his fate to compromise his ideals in pursuit of his ambition. He acted as a puppet figurehead for the German-occupied parts of Southern England from 1940 until his death in 1943, killed by a Resistance bomb in his capital of Winchester. The legitimate descendants of James II became extinct with his demise, and Elizabeth II was restored after the conclusion of the War, until of course the young Queen was deposed by the Democratic Bloc in 1947.

Since Clinton B. Fisk's spoiler campaign in 1888 and the Fusion campaign of 1892, the Prohibition Party has been seen as a credible national political vessel. Although the party would split between the fusionist "broad-gauges" who supported popular candidates like William Jennings Bryan and more puritan "narrow-gauges" who wished to run isolated campaigns it would be reunited before the turn-of-the-century. From there, the party would thrive in the face of William Randolph Hearst, the Democrats' standardbearer's, controversies and the growing failure of "Hannanomics."

In 1916, as President Oscar Underwood readied the country to join the war in Europe, the Prohibition Party reached a breakthrough. Underwood waffled on war while the declining GOP generally supported it. This was in contrast to public opinion being against American intervention. In one move, Prohibition Party leaders resurrected the political career of William Jennings Bryan and the party's fortunes in the modern era. Although he would only finish in third, Bryan ran an energetic campaign - and one with the extra bitterness of a man who narrowly finished second to both Hearst and Underwood.

The postwar environment of Underwood's final years in office degraded his national standing and the Democratic Party was forced to look to a popular nonpartisan figure to carry their party to victory. They paired Herbert Hoover with a young scion of a Bourbon family and sent him against a GOP that was cannibalizing itself. They, alongside the rest of the country, would be surprised to find that Hoover's biggest opponent was not a Republican but was actually William Jennings Bryan.

The GOP continued their decline while the Prohibition Party fully embraced the expanding Klansman "Invisible Empire." And although former President Underwood took to the radio to condemn the 1924 PNC for its "lawlessness" not many cared - Underwood was very unpopular anyway. President Hoover, tying himself to the decade's economic prosperity, still won by a decent margin.

The nomination of Al Smith, the Catholic Governor of New York, by the Democrats fundamentally shifted the nation's political landscape. Already unhappy with the Understanding of 1913 (an agreement between President Underwood and temperance leaders that national prohibition was out of the picture but local prohibition would be encouraged) Prohibitionists saw a Wet President - and a Catholic Wet President at that - as the end of any chance for serious national prohibition. The pale blue South would become solidly purple and Smith would pull off a narrow victory against an enraged Prohibition opposition.

This would be to his detriment. The Stock Market Crash of August, 1930 would set off the Lean Years. Massive Prohibition gains in the 1930 midterms would finally destroy the dying Republicans, whose members either jumped ship for Smith's Democrats or the Prohibitionists. As the Lean Years got leaner and election season rolled around, the inevitable and expected result occurred.

@Yokai Man 's thing is lovely, but I've often wondered how to do a more accurate PR mapping - one problem I think often exists with the methodology is setting up regions of like 10 changes the game a lot - also, there's candidacy numbers - say the Greens only stood in 325 seats in the election you're mapping - do you double their number because twice as many people could have voted for them - or presume they mostly would havestood in their better areass so weight it, and how do you deicde who would have voted for them so wouldn't have voted for someone else? It's a rabbit hole

When Premier Evers announced John Lewis as his successor in 1997 it was considered by many to be a continuation of the political liberalization that had been kicked into action following the end of the Anglo-Soviet Shadow War.

This did not mean that Lewis’ premiership would be the abandonment of socialism as some in New Afrika hoped or feared. Lewis was the first premier not to have fought in the Liberation War (1942-46). Instead he was a veteran of the Great American War (1969-1972) where he lost half his family. Lewis’ premiership not only saw the amount of skirmishes with the Miami government significantly decrease, but also an increase of living standards just like most countries of the Comintern. Furthermore he made it easier for political opposition to rally as the country went from a dominant party system to something resembling a hybrid regime.

His premiership was also embroiled in controversy. From his almost dictatorial grip on the premiership to the numerous corruption scandals that were reported on by newly formed opposition newspapers. Lewis also refused to establish relations with non-Comintern Communist nations and mostly followed the Soviet Union and the American Workers’ Republic.

Nevertheless his death came as a shock to many in North America. His successors mismanagement of the economy during the recession of 2010 only improved Lewis’ image as he is now considered the third greatest premier of New Africa after founding father Benjamin O. Davis and fourth premier Malcolm Little.

Lumumba, Lewis’ successor, in many ways fell victim to his predecessor’s succes. Political liberalization saw the formation of new parties like the Titoist Independent Socialists and the strengthening of the Chauvinistic Brown Movement. It would however not be either of those two that would defeat Lumumba. Instead it was Hussein Obama’s movement built on the anger of the newly formed middle class of New Afrika. Obama managed to get more votes than Lumumba, but not more mp’s as the districts were heavily gerrymandered in the National Workers’ Party’s favor. Obama ultimately managed to secure Cain and Green’s support and became the first Premier not to be a member of the National Workers’ Party or it’s predecessor.

Obama’s main aim was to make New Afrika more connected to the rest of the world. He obviously knew that going to London or Paris would be political suicide, but he nonetheless did manage to form trade relations with the Western Imperialist Power’s. This along with granting voting rights to the small population of Northern Whites (Southern Whites having been expelled following the Great American War) almost saw him impeached by the House of Representatives. He did however remain popular with the regular people. When he shook hands with President Tom Hayden (Sacramento) following his regimes official approval of the independence of the New African Republic Obama’s popularity skyrocketed. A few months later he managed to establish official relations with the Omaha government following a meeting with President Greg Orman in San Juan. This would unfortunately be the last ever meeting Premier Obama held as the following night his plane crashed somewhere over the Western Atlantic.

This plane crash itself caused another border skirmish between New Afrika and the Miami government. Cory Booker however failed to be the leader that Obama was. Not that he didn’t try. Booker personally traveled to Miami and shared a very awkward handshake with President Dennis Baxley. This move fastened his fall from power. Just 2 weeks after the handshake in Miami president Booker was announced as persona non granta in the American Workers Republic by Secretary-General Biden and the rest of the American Soviet.

The Brown Movement pulled back from the coalition and early elections were held. The National Workers’ Party returned to a majority government under Clyburn despite only winning 44% of the vote. Clyburn did not get rid of all of Obama’s reforms, but he did move the country closer to the Soviet sphere again. The problem was that the Communist bloc entered its own period of change. Independents managed to wrestle power away from Communist parties in Germany and Hungary and the establishment of the Fifth International by Socialist and Anti-Soviet Communists nations like Italy, Yugoslavia, India, Brazil, Kenya, China and the Sacramento government only further spelled the end of the Soviet hegemony. Even in North America change was on the rise. Moderate Secretary-General Biden was replaced by Bernie Sanders who had the backing of progressive communists, non-Communist party communists and members of the few official opposition parties. Clyburn however was an old-school man. He truly believed that the interests of New Afrika were aligned with those of the Soviet Union. He refused to attend the first North American Confernece. He refused to condone the Egyptian invasion of Palestine and he even refused to condone Soviet troops firing on Romanian protesters.

Clyburn somehow managed to remain Premier after forming a coalition with the Brown movement. The 2020 InterWeb leaks ultimately spelled the end for Clyburn and much of his party as it leaked that pretty much the entire Old Guard of the National Workers’ party were embroiled in one political scandal or the other. Weeks of protests followed and when it finally looked like Clyburn would resign the Brown army interfered. General Ward, himself involved in multiple corruption scandals, attempted a coup and held onto power for 6 days before being deposed by a counter-coup led by former General and war hero Collin Powell. ‘The Lion’ only acted as premier for a few months and removed any member of the majlis who had any involvement with a major corruption scandal. Younger National Worker’s Party formed a new party and a coalition with former premier Obama’s party. Neither party look particularly likely to win the election of 2020 though. Instead it is former school teacher Ayanna Pressley of the League of Independent Socialists who is polling in first place. Her party having largely abandoned Titoism for EPICism as they look at the success of Chesa Boudin who became the first President of the newly unified Sacramento-Omaha government.

Shouldn't that be condemn considering he's all in on the soviets?

Anyway, I really like this! I wonder how Obama ended up there considering his own origins don't really map, but it's pretty well done.

What's up with the US? It looks like a progressive western government and a worker one in the north east, plus a rump southern one in Miami?
