I quite like this, although I've always thought that had Hitler died in 1923 (either by being shot during the putsch or in the suicide attempt at Putzi's house) that Albrecht von Graefe and his DVFP would've taken de facto control of the volkisch movement, considering that the Strasser boys were actually making moves to merge with the DVFP while Hitler was in 'prison'. Von Graefe was pretty crappy, though, and so frankly the most optimistic thing I see in Germany's future is the iron boot of Goerdeler or Von Schleicher, rather than that of Hitler.

1935-1938: Ramsay Macdonald† (Labour leading Popular Front with Radicals, Co-op and CPGB)
1935 def. Sir John Simon (National Conservative), Richard Acland (National Liberal), William Wedgwood Benn (Radical), A. V. Alexander (Co-op), Oswald Mosley (Social Credit), R. Palme Dutt (CPGB), John Taylor (NDLP)
1938-1938: Megan Lloyd George (Radical leading Popular Front with Labour, Co-op and CPGB)
1938-0000: A. V. Alexander (Co-op leading Popular Front with Labour, Radical and CPGB)


Asquith doesn't get back into Parliament after losing his seat in 1918, followed by Lloyd George conveniently dying before he can turn Chanak into a Crisis. Chamberlain and Churchill perpetuate the Coupon as a grand bulwark of anti-socialism, which leads to Interesting Parliamentary Arithmetic where neither Labour nor the National Parties control enough seats to govern alone, necessitating the support of smaller parties to govern and bringing about the gradual evolution of two more-or-less stable coalitions that eventually (i.e. immediately after the end of this list) become parties in their own right.

Based on a dream what I had

United Kingdom

1945-1956: Clement Atlee (Labour)

World War III broke out when the Berlin Airlift was shot down in 1949, leading to the Soviet invasion of West Germany, another national government and the nuclear bombing of Colchester. America grew less and less discriminating in their reprisal nuclear attacks as Europe fell to communism. By 1954, continental Europe was under Soviet domination and while the Allies dominated the seas all hope was lost of victory.

During the uneasy peace, street fighting broke out in Britain over the starvation rations. However, with Soviet allies mostly interned the leadership tended towards forms of English Trotskyism. As riots spread across the country, much of the government escaped, temporarily, to Canada. However riot and revolution was beginning to spread to the Americas.

Republic of Great Britain

1956-1960: Ted Grant (Leftist Bloc)

For four years, Britain was a bulwark of revolution in the formerly capitalist world, as Revolutionary forces took the main cities in America and the tenor of the revolution there began to change as white, anglo-saxon figures took leading roles and tapped into patriotism. The new alliance of South Africa, Australia, and America found itself fighting a war of reconquest as Maoist and Soviet forces snapped at Africa and Asia. The political situation of the time was chaotic and changeable as pro-capitalist forces attempted to triangulate between the enemies within, without, and beyond all at once.

Oceania

1960-1962: Triumvirate (IngSoc)
Ted Grant (English Socialist Party); James P. Cannon (Socialist Workers' Party); Jack Kavanagh (Workers' League of Australia)

Oceania was founded on a promise of being a cohesive, unitary republic of the sort that had emerged in the Eurasian Soviet Union and the Eastasian People's Republic. But this was a difficult feat. There was no Mao, no Beria, but instead a chaotic handful of leaders in charge of a chaotic handful of parties.

One saving grace was the development of IngSoc as a party and ideology. It was a philosophy that had developed out of World War III and the British revolution - pragmatic, patriotic, entryist, and brutally conformist. IngSoc cells formed within other parties and would aim to convert to an outer party level of understanding, then indoctrinate people into the higher levels of the ideology. IngSoc was always the priority and their agents were willing to go as far as murder of political allies to achieve their goals.

Another useful development was NewSpeak - while English was by far the most common language in Oceania, it was spoken in various different ways and not at all in some areas in South America that Oceania was keen to incorporate. NewSpeak was initially intended as a simpler form of English for use in multilingual settings but soon became an important cultural project in its own right.

1962-1963: 2nd Triumvirate (IngSoc)
Emmanuel Goldstein; Murray Rothbard; Ted Grant

IngSoc finally took control of Oceania in 1962, and by the end of the year all other political parties had been banned.All functions of government were focused into three over arching super-ministries under one of the members of the triumvirate. All former laws were abolished and surprisingly few were put back in place, although the political police force of the Ministry of Love took an increasingly active role in keeping the peace.

1963-1965: 3rd Triumvirate (IngSoc)
Murray Rothbard; William Aaronson; Eric Edgar Cooke

The purges of 1963 saw the establishment of "Immediate Socialism" and Oceania declared an end to all class distinctions and capitalism. How meaningful this was is dubious - the proles were developing into a distinct underclass and society was collapsing. While Emmanuel Goldstein survived the initial purges by seeking shelter in Eurasia, he was assasinated in very short order. A fact that never quite made it into the national news in Oceania, where he developed into a convenient boogeyman figure. In 1965 the national legislature was shut down, leaving full power in the hands of the three ministries.

1965-1967: Collective Leadership (IngSoc)

The purges of '65 and '66 were the largest yet and it became clear that just as no one figure could run such a large and diverse country, nobody could publically be seen to control a part of it without risking themselves in a purge. The figure of Big Brother became more prominent, first as a mascot but increasingly it became common to speak about him as though he was real. By 1966 denying the existence of Big Brother became thought crime.

1967-1992: Big Brother (IngSoc)

Big Brother was officially vested in power in around 1967, although officially it was decided by around 1970 to deny that he had ever not been in power. The 70s were the highpoint of IngSoc, which controlled all organs of power not via intermediaries and personalities, but through sheer force of impersonal dogma. By the 80s, however, the system was collapsing. Prole riots were never reported but were not uncommon, and the economy was in free fall and almost nothing was produced and nobody was able to plan, innovate, record data or analyse trends without attracting the attention of the thought police. By 1987, Oceania was fighting to maintain control of South America. By 1988 it was decided that it was bravely focusing on conquoring South America for the first time. 1990 saw a peace with the two other great powers as Australia was wrecked by rebellions. The one saving grace was that Western Europe was under similar strain and Eastasia, overstretching itself into Africa and Asia, would soon follow suit.

1991 saw the beginning of civil war in America, and Big Brither began to recede from view, more useful as a symbol now that the state was unable to paper over the cracks with doublethink and purges.

People's Republic of Britain

1992-1993: Alan Johnson (IngSoc)

Alan Johnson was never formally the leader of the People's Republic, but as the Republic was coming together he was the most prominent figure. When IngSoc needed someone to negotiate with rebel towns, when it was necessary to negotiate a peace deal with the nasceant French Republic, Alan Johnson was the person in the fore.

As IngSoc receded, this became less true. By 1993, when the first semi-free elections were held (IngSoc controlled regions and company towns were allowed to appoint rather than elect representatives) he was seen to have been replaced. Though he continued to be a senior figure in IngSoc controlled areas, where it was treated as thought crime to believe that Oceania had fallen or the Big Brother was not in charge of increasingly large parts of the world.

1993-2000: David Allan (People's Republican Party)

Former news announcer David Allan was a calming face that the British populance could get behind, but he was not a powerful figure. Across the country standards of living were dropping as formerly party controlled property was "privatised" by whoever took over it. People found themselves suddenly paying "rent" to mob bosses. The election on 1999 was almost entirely appointed rather than elected, but the state struggled on

2000-2004: Tam McGraw (People's Republican Party)
On New Years Eve 1999 David Allan announced, to many people's surprise, that he was standing down. Former prole ganster Tam MacGraw took his place. This was of great concern to some former Party members who felt it would mean more Kleptocracy, but it was in fact quite successful. Over four years much of the remaining IngSoc territory was cleared, leaving the Party in control of little more than small parts of Inner London. The newly privatised properties allowed big gangs to expand into actual businesses, which allowed them to operate in more official ways - not just collecting rent but also making repairs. Not just ignoring the rules, but writing laws to protect their property. By the end of four years, some semblance of the rule of law had been re-established.

2004-2005: Robert Kilroy (People's Republican Party)

Taking over after what was widely considered to be the suicide of Tam MacGraw, Kilroy continued to expand the private sector and formalise laws, although his time as president was relatively short. In 2005 he did what no leader of Britain had done in sixty years - he lost an election and peacefully handed over power to a rival party.

2005-2011: John Prescott (IngSoc) Coalition with George Galloway (Communist Party PRB)

IngSoc still controlled some areas of London - by now only really the towers of the three ministries and some areas around them - but outside of those areas, the Party had adapted and become a broadly left of centre organisation that did some work in society and could contest elections. This was still a rarity, and the organisation was able to win a slight plurality in the Congress - which became a majority when they agreed to work alongside the Goldsteinist Communists.

Corporations lost their right to vote on people's behalf and IngSoc surprised voters by applying the same rules to their own territories. The few remaining areas that considered themselves to be controlled by Big Brother's world state of Oceania were now relegated to perhaps being allowed seats on London City Council.

During this time the state also introduced basic unemployment benefits, orphanages, and even some level of healthcare insurance.

2011-2017: Richard Littlejohn (People's Republican Party)

The 2011 election was contested mainly on the issue of vagrancy reform. IngSoc's policies of feeding and clothing the itinerant poor had created hotspots for poverty that created crime, disorder and disease. Littlejohn's government promised to clear the soup kitchens and abolish the worst of the orphanages. It was a difficult time for the state. While criminality decreased, starvation greatly increased, and public disorder did break out on a few occasions in protests and even riots.

Nonetheless it was an era of economic success and cultural development, as British businesses started to be seen overseas and the film and music industries were revived by new talents that pushed British culture across the world.

2017-2019: Steven Morrissey (Liberal Democratic Party)

The Liberal Democrats were meant to represent a third way between the handouts of IngSoc and the brutality of the PRP, but under Morrissey, the system never quite worked out. What was meant to happen was a freeze on immigration from deprived areas of Western Europe and a massive housebuilding programme that would employ the poor in building their own new homes. This never quite worked. Companies took the advances on their government contracts then did nothing with them, while even the minimal provisions that existed for social welfare went unmet.

A big part of the problem was that the civil service was mostly PRP and IngSoc loyalists, and finding new allies was hard for Morrissey, after just a year, and hangued on all sides, he handed power over to his party.

2019-2020: Triumvirate (Liberal Democratic Party)
Steven Yaxley; Vincent Cable; Kellie-Jay Minshull

No new President could be decided on, but a number of figures rose to dominance. Moving the seat of government into the old Ministry of Love building, the Triumvirate was able to conveniently replace much of the old bureaucracy in the process. For a strange few months, the upper levels of the seat of government believed themselves to be in a different state to the rest of Britain. But eventually the last few stragglers from Oceania were starved out.

Housing and social welfare commitments were mostly forgotten, and the triumvirate focused instead on whipping up patriotism and finding excuses to attack its ideological enemies in congress. The Liberal Democrat's also started to use government funds to arm their militia. While of course every political party has a militia it was previously understood that these were to be funded privately. Increasingly, the Liberal Democrats took on the function of a politicised police force. This was particularly notable in their breaking of the London transport strike.

2020: Collective Leadership (Liberal Democratic Party)

One by one, the original Triumvirate have been replaced with a confusing array of distant figures. Nobody is quite sure who they are anymore, or if they can still be voted out of office. The democratic organs of government are still in place, technically. But they've never been trusted and increasingly commentators are speaking in terms of if, not when, there's another election. The figure of Big Brother has even been rehabilitated by the party, as a national symbol and a human face of the government.

Despite this, there's no guarantee that the Liberal Democrats would even lose the next election. People are mostly happy. There is freedom of a sort, enough food, and clothes, and supplies. And there's peace. Perhaps this is as good as it gets?

"The reason they call it a revolution is that you get back to where you started."
---Apocryphal, attributed to many a cynic​

This was a terrific take on probably the most-taked-on scenario on the Web. Particularly liked the idea of IngSoc's ideals of the Outer and Inner Party emerging from the Militant Tendency doing entryism, the probably suicide of Tam McGraw, and Oceania surviving in the upper levels of MiniLove.

That was a big part of my dream - I was an outer Party admin in the dying remains of minilove, who was sent to the lower levels because we needed to find someone to authorise a requisition request. The society I found was one of those bad idiocracy style dictatorships - "ah, everyone is stupid now because too much working class breeding so you see this is the real dystopia" and I just was mostly pissed off at the lazy concept. But people were kind of transphobic so I flew a three kilometer long Culture spaceship through London burning my enemies then out to the moon. And that was fun.

1929 - 1936: Ramsay Macdonald (coalition, National Labour)

1936 - 1941: Oswald Mosley (BUF minority)

1941 - 1944: Clement Attlee (Lab-Lib coalition)

1944 - 1953: Oswald Mosley (BUF)


Ramsay Macdonald's inglorious health collapse in office was the opening the charismatic Mosley needed - but not enough to win a majority. He was able to get some of his economic plans through by sheer force, and able to push rearmament, but the bulk of his policies were prevented. He negotiated with the King to accept a morganatic marriage and claimed to have "peace in our time" after negotiating with Hitler to allow for demilitarised Czechoslovakia and South Poland rump states under British protection, but the public saw this as a shabby outcome.

The Lab-Lib coalition, however, failed to survive the twin shocks of the Nazi-Soviet War and the Pacific War. The Far East was lost, the Royal Navy humiliated, and the British left criticised as too friendly to Stalin. Mosley regained power, this time with a majority, and was massively transformative: the corporate state, the modern welfare system, the immigration controls, the rationalisation of the Empire that saw unprofitable colonies sold off to friendly powers, and law & order and public decency pushes. The Tories weren't necessary for many people, and Labour was battered by a sea of "investigations". What finally undermined him was Northern Ireland, where (long having sympathies to the catholic Irish) he dissolved the government and aggressively forced reforms (including with aggressive force) to the fury of unionists; a party rebellion was put down but weakened him.

1953 - 1966: Clement Davies (Liberal)

1966 - 1969: Ted Heath (Liberal-Unionist coalition, then Liberal minority from 1969-70)

1970 - 1988: Jeremy Thorpe (Liberal)


The UK had thirty-five years of Liberal government, as the left never got over the battering of Labour and the right-wing was split three ways between this, the BUF, and the Nationalists. Britain was once again famous for social and economic liberalism, the BUF constantly kept out; the Empire ended and Heath, though it cost him majority and then leadership, took the country into the newly formed European Economic Alliance. For thirty-five years, Britain effectively ran Europe and was seen as the Quiet Man of the globe, a nation of stability while American-style capitalist democracy, several brands of communism, and "democratic fascism" fought for dominance.

Underneath the surface, discontent was growing: Thorpe was quietly corrupt but, worse, not a racist AND ever-openly gay. The BUF couldn't topple him for a while but, over and over, it could convince more people that all problems in Britain went to that man. The left continued to fall, the Unionists were eventually devoured by the BUF - it just needed a charismatic man promising change...

1988 - 2002: David Icke (BUF)


Famous sports commentator Icke was that man, bringing in green fascism and quasi-New Age views to liven up the party. He also warned that without action - to fix environment, economy, and social order - "the world will soon end". He also thundered about THOSE IN CHARGE, of corrupt cabals in power that manipulated and raped and fed on us. Icke won, and went about fixing the country.

By the time it was clear he'd meant "the Jews" and fixing the country meant some horrific crackdowns on liberties, it was too late: Ickist fascists were in all branches of government, civil service, and in the new National Crime Agency and army Rapid-Response Security Divisions. He'd called an early election in 1990 to increase his chances and 1995 was, uh, "disputed". Britain decayed into dictatorship and as the world sanctioned it, it became an island under siege. (Northern Ireland became a den of crime and people-smuggling as Britons used it to escape to the Republic and freedom) The Royal Family had to flee, though a "car accident" carrying the Princess Consort was clearly a hit.

By 1999, it was now part of government propaganda that mankind was being preyed upon by shape-shifting reptilian aliens. Purges of their agents were frequent. That year, Icke decided they were in Northern Ireland and he attempted to "purge" it, leading to the Ireland War and a global coalition forcing the army back to British soil. The BUF state was now weakened, right as Icke's madness reached fever pitch. The Second Civil War in '02 achieved early success for the rebels when John Major, a bus driver and leader of the Guns of Brixton Regiment, led an alliance of all London rebel groups in a raid on the Presidential Palace (formerly Buckingham Palace) and forced Icke to retreat to Nottingham.

Following that, the international community recognised the "Round Table" - a loose coalition of various groups - as the legitimate government.

2002 - 2004: John Major (Round Table)

2004 - 2009: John Major (Democratic Union)



It took another year to finally crush the BUF and Icke, and a lot of aid and foreign peacekeepers to keep Britain together long enough for a new election. Major stood down after five more years, making it clear democracy and changes of government were back in Britain

3 Predictions for the next 12 months

1.Boris Bottles It (aka "Hey Wayne, lets do the mega happy ending!" )

2019- November 2019: Boris Johnson (Conservative Minority)
November 2019-June 2020: Jeremy Corbyn (Labour-SNP-PC Coalition with LD, Independent, One Nation, and GPEW Support)

Def: Michael Gove (Conservative) Jo Swinson (Lib Dem) Nicola Sturgeon (SNP) Rory Stewart (One Nation) Nigel Farage (Brexit) Arlene Foster (DUP) Mary Lou MacDonald (SF) Adam Price (Plaid Cymru) Jon Bartley and Sian Berry (GPEW)
2020 January EU Deal Referendum:
Remain: 51% Leave 49%
May: Scottish Independence Referendum
Remain 52.5 Leave: 47.5%
(1)June 2020- Present: Jo Swinson (Liberal Democrat-One Nation-Social Democrat Coalition)
Def: Jeremy Corbyn (Labour) Dominic Raab (Conservative) Jo Swinson (Lib Dem) Tom Watson (Social Democrat) Nicola Sturgeon (SNP) Rory Stewart (One Nation) Nigel Farage (Brexit) Arlene Foster (DUP) Mary Lou MacDonald (SF) Jon Bartley and Sian Berry (GPEW) Adam Price (Plaid Cymru)

(1) First referendum after voting reform

In this (unlikely) scenario Boris goes to Brussels and asks for an extension and immediately resigns as Tory leader. The Opposition hold a vote of no confidence in the government and a general election is held in November. Faced with a Right split between the Pro-Deal One Nation, the floundering Tory party and the pro no-deal Brexit Party Labour get the most seats but fall far short of a majority. They come to an agreement with most parties to hold a second referendum between remain and a Norway style single market deal). They also pass electoral reform. With many pro-no-deal parties boycotting the second referendum the UK votes to remain. Scotland votes to remain in the UK (indyref2 was an agreement for the SNP to support Labour) and the UK goes to the polls again, this time under a Scotland/Wales style Additional member system. Post-election talks between Labour and the Lib Dems break down over Jeremy Corbyn being Prime Minister. Several Labour MPs withdraw from the party to back a Lib-Dem lead centrist government.


2. Crashing the heck out

2019- October 2020: Boris Johnson (Conservative Minority)
October 2020-April 2020 Sajid Javid

April 2020-Present: Jeremy Corbyn (Labour Majority)
Def: Sajid Javid (Conservative) Jo Swinson (Lib Dem) Tom Watson (Social Democrat) Nicola Sturgeon (SNP) Rory Stewart (One Nation) Arlene Foster (DUP) Mary Lou MacDonald (SF) Jon Bartley and Sian Berry (GPEW) Adam Price (Plaid Cymru)

Boris sacrifices himself to avoid asking for an extension. He is arrested for contempt of Parliament in the confusion of it all the UK crashes out of the EU. Sajid Javid is selected as a temporary Prime Minister and eventually is elected leader of the Conservative party. Protests and riots are seen across the country as many see food and medicine shortages and the pound tanks. There’s a surprising amount of cooperation in the months following no-deal to get food and medicine into the country but the fairly impotent Javid government doesn’t get through any legislation over taxation reform. By April with things calmly down slightly the opposition parties call for a general election. While the Liberal Democrat lead Democratic ticket does well Labour secure a small majority. Labour has great plans for Britain, but first they have to secure food supplies and medication.


3.The Long Awaited Unity Government


2019- October 2019: Boris Johnson (Conservative Minority)
October 2019- November 2019: Sir Kier Starmer (Labour leading National Emergency government)

Def: Jeremy Corbyn (Labour) Jo Swinson (Lib Dem) Nicola Sturgeon (SNP) Rory Stewart (One Nation) Arlene Foster (DUP) Mary Lou MacDonald (SF) Jon Bartley and Sian Berry (GPEW) Adam Price (Plaid Cymru)

Kier Starmer is chosen as Prime minister to head up a National Unity government and goes to Brussels to ask for an extension to the Brexit Deadline. Following this an election is called and Boris Johnson uses the full power of his populist narrative to drain the Brexit Party of support and secure a decent majority and Britain leaves the EU at the end of January 2020. By September 2020 Labour are leading the Conservatives in the polls they lack the seats to call for a general election
Oh

Well then

The Most Noble and Regal Emperors of the Empire of Usa, 1960-2060
Here ye, O noble reader, of the tale of the EMPERORS of our most sacred and holy EMPIRE. May the favor of God forever shine upon His most loyal and noble servants as they lead us forth into the glories of history.
Emperor John I 1960-1962
All know the story of our first glorious emperor, John, First of His Name, the Ascended Emperor and the First of the noble House of Kennedy. John I was a hero of the World War, the greatest conflict prior to the Great Disaster. John I's predecessors as ruler of Usa remain sadly unknown, but it is known his rise to power was, as shocking as it might be to think today, considered controversial. Nevertheless John I, Servant of God, showed his true glory to his subjects when he sacrificed himself in the ancient capital of Deesi to save his people from the Hellfire. Is it any wonder his praises remain sung to this day?
Emperor Robert I 1962-1975
The younger brother of Emperor John I, it is Emperor Robert, First of His Name, who we owe the existence of our current empire. In the immediate aftermath of the Great Disaster, many were starving, destitute and struggling. The demon-worshipping Kuklux of the Southlands rose up and embarked on a series of cruel and barbaric mass murders. John I's treacherous advisor Johnson Connally attempted to lead Texas out of the Usa. The Mad General Curtis asserted control over the Golden State and various petty bandits and warlords rose up. Despite these odds, Robert I would personally lead the struggle to reunite Usa. The demon-worshippers, the traitors and the Mad General were all brought to a heel, as were the bandits. It was not an easy struggle, but Robert I put the country back together once again. Robert I, the Great Rebuilder, than embarked on restoring the Usa to its past glories-rebuilding cities destroyed by the Hellfire, building monuments to the slain and so forth. Unfortunately Robert I would not live to see the old glories of Usa restored, as he was cut down by a murderous acolyte of the since-slain Jedgar Hoover.
Emperor Edward 1975-1990
Emperor Edward is to date the only one of his name to have been Emperor. Emperor Edward would lead the Empire of Usa in a glorious war of expansion, annexing Cuba, Mexico and the Canadas into our glorious empire. Emperor Edward saw the destiny of Usa as dominance over the continent and dedicated himself to fulfilling it. Emperor Edward completed the restoration of destroyed cities and commissioned writers to immortalize the deeds of his brothers. However, Edward's reign would tragically be cut short by his death from cancer.
Emperor John II 1990-2000
Emperor John II, Second of His Name, was the emperor who sought to restore ties to other parts of the world. He reforged the alliance between Usa and Albion, reestablished trade relations with the other nations of shattered Europa and sent expeditions to determine the fate of the monstrous Reds in Russia. John II's expeditions managed to determine the perfidious Reds had been obliterated by their own Hellfire and the peoples of Russia had been liberated from that yoke, though some had been subjugated on other brutal, but mortal rulers. John II would have his rule cut short by his death.
The War of Succession 2000-2011
The death of John II would set off an intense struggle for power. The scion of Emperors Robert and Edward clashed over the right to the throne, as did some more distant offshoots of the family in House Shriver and enemies of the noble House of Kennedy, most notably the perfidious opportunists of the House of Bush who crowned their patriarch as Emperor George I. The fight for control was hard-fought and brutal, with many rebuilt cities being reduced once again to a state of ruins. In the end, however, the rulership was successfully determined.
Emperor Robert II 2011-2052
Emperor Robert II, Second of His Name, had revealed to the Empire of Usa the treachery of the scion of Empeeror Edward, whom he revealed had arranged for John II's death and made it look like an accident. Robert II began his reign thusly by arresting members of that branch of the House of Kennedy, though he mercifully exiled Patrick the Pretender rather than shed his noble kin's blood. Robert II additionally revealed the true nature of the House of Kennedy as divine emissaries and the rightful rulers of the Earth. To that end, Robert II waged a noble crusade to secure control of the southern nations of Brazil, Argentina and Peru. Resistance was initially strong, but ultimately crushed and its people welcomed into the glorious fold of the Empire of Usa. Robert II additionally fulfilled the promise of his noble ancestors by sending men to the Moon, placing the flag of the Empire upon its surface and claiming it for Usa for all time. Robert II was a wise and good emperor and thus was rewarded with a long reign that ended with his peaceful death of old age.
Emperor Conor 2052-
The Emperor of Usa has enjoyed peace and prosperity for the past eight years of Emperor Conor, the secondborn son of Emperor Robert II placed in line for the throne following the tragic death of the child who would have been Robert III in the War of Succession. Emperor Conor has vowed to take Usa to new heights, making a permanent settlement on the Moon and spreading the wings of the Eagle of Usa to all corners of the globe. May God bless and protect Emperor Conor! Long may he reign and may his ancestor John I shine his glory upon him!

Simple enough gimmick here, Teddy doesn't die as early as IOTL, living to a ripe old age in which he is able to effectively get the Republican nomination in 1916 and eventually win the Presidency in 1928, thanks to an earlier Great Depression and the Democrats running themselves into the ground with a series of scandals stemming from no return to 'normalcy', and the growing power of the Klan. The circumstances lead to Teddy establishing an 'Extraordinary Administration' in which the Presidency assumes unprecedented emergency powers to reorganise government and save America from the dual serpents of economic disaster and white supremacist insurgency.

So in this universe, it has been 32 years since there was a presidential election in which no Roosevelt ran, bar one. Kinda like how from 1928—2016, no Republican ticket won the White House without either having Nixon or a Bush somewhere on the ticket.

The City on the Hill and Its Bosses (Thanks to @Lord Roem , Apologies to @Meadow )

In Washington-Debs City, Maryland the President paces back and forth in the oval office worriedly. For what had to be the thousandth thousandth time since last July he cursed them all in his mind. Ed Markey for riling up the National Assembly, Jesse Ventura for not keeping quiet in his stupid exiled post as Commissioner-Commissar for The Special States and claiming a legacy that long ago should have faded into nothing, Bernie Goddamned Sanders for quitting the party decades ago and always fucking pushing this Popular Front thing forward, his predecessors who had always conspired to keep him from this office until now and kept the Commonwealth heading to the precipice, fucking Trumka for giving that goddamned speech at goddamned Haymarket Square, and most of all he cursed Henry Ray Perot his former boss and predecessor. The damned old man had ruined everything. Stupid crumbs of "Political Liberalization" too little he had thought to change anything except letting off steam, but too damned much by far. Now where were they? Organized Political Opposition, Student Protests, the Army being concerned about their chances, and the IWW in talks with this treasonous "National Federation of Citizens and Workers", all the talk of a General Strike, Riots, questions from the Special State Governments...

Ellis looked at the Resolute Desk and saw the hotline phones. One to Petrograd and Lukashenko's office there. The Red Army could be in the country in a few days. The NKVD out in force aiding the Federal Marshals Service. It would just take a few minutes and he would be just like the men on the Self-Defense Committee in 1936 when the fighting had stalled and they'd dealt with Stalin, or when "Red Bill" had stepped in, yes a bit extra-constitutionally to secure the survival of the New York Pact with America's only Ally, Beria's USSR. One Phone call and everything could be turned around. But what held him back was the knowledge of what that would mean. Lukashenko was far from a good man, there was a reason for the past twenty years Commonwealth-Union relations had been so chilled after all. Even with the whole world seemed against the Communist Powers. Could he do that? He wasn't sure. Did he want to be a Butcher defending the revolution? He considered the alternatives, what would all of these bastards do if they won? Maybe he could be a hero then too, the man who cooperated. Hoffa had tried that... Look how that ended up.

And so he paced about the office some more. No answers appearing, and the Crisis of a near Century of Marxist-Leninist rule weighing ever more on his indecisive shoulders.

...And all it took was two dynamic Labour leaders, two moderate ones and the Conservatives choosing just the worst leaders in hindsight. There’s the problem that Democratic Labour has actually gained an ideology that isn’t ‘Grumpy Labour Right Wingers complain’ under the Anti-Corruption, Social Democratic, Reforming eye of Eddie Milne but that shouldn’t effect things too much...
