But is it any more surreal than a Kaiser-aligned China under Wang Jingwei?
No, this Wang Jingwei we’re talking about here, he would be the type to big up ‘Teutonic Socialist’ values or similar bullshit to justify his rule.
*successfully avenges Venizelos's execution*
Well at least Greece in this world is no longer shit and all that.
Opportunistic as fuck, perhaps, but appreciates the Concord at the very least.
*The Business Plot But instead of a Based Socialist, it’s a boring Republican Technocrat*

That being said, he’s definitely much better than the brief Hearst dominated White House.
By the way, I have to point out that Vitya's predecessor as Prime Minister, for a brief period at least, was Nikolai Lvov.
Interesting, this seems a very Centre-Right dominated Russia to say the least.
Now, for all the authoritarian qualities of the Russian Republic, it's arguably better off than it had and/or could've been under certain other leaders of the 1920s; the Pepelyayev brothers recognize the limitrophe states of the Weltsystem, for one.
They probably also realise that just leaving the Peasants and Workers to starve is a stupid idea, so I could imagine some awkward Welfare State is set up or some piece of Social Liberal Reformism is set up.

This has all the components of being a really good TL to say the least.

To be fair, it's not the only one - Spain's American-backed democracy, questionable leader aside, is functional and economically healthy - but yeah.

List of Superintendents of Canterbury Province
1868-1893: William Rolleston (Liberal Party)
1893-1909: William Pember Reeves (Progressive Party)
1909-1928: Frank Rolleston (Liberal Party)
1928-1933: G. R. Blanco White (Progressive Party)
1933-1944: Humphry Davy Rolleston (Liberal Party)
1944-1967: C. H. Waddington (Progressive Party)
1967-1974: Thomas Blanco White (Progressive Party)
1974-1986: Gen. Charles Upham (Liberal Party)
1986-1990: Humphry Rolleston (Liberal Party)
1990-2001: Martin Rees (Progressive Party)
2001-2016: Frank Gardner (Liberal Party)
2016-: David McDuff (Progressive Party)

The Province of Canterbury, in the Commonwealth of New Zealand, has a long-established party system based on the dominant clans of this rather traditionalist region. William Rolleston was assisted into the hot-seat by his father-in-law, Joseph Brittan, who was then the owner of The Press - a newspaper which represents the more conservative interests of the denizens of Christchurch. As against the Brittan-Rolleston clique, the Lyttelton Times was owned by the Reeves family, who overcame the challenges of franchise restrictions in the early 1890s to concretise a very early example of Fabian socialism - votes for women, laws governing working conditions, and a ban on Chinese immigration. All of this was backed up by the latest advances in the social (and actual) sciences.

The Liberals slowed the pace of reform when they came back into power in 1909, and remained there for much of the next few decades. The Progressives regained power just in time to deal with the Great Depression, in which they fared poorly, despite retaining the services of H. G. Wells (admittedly well outside his comfort zone) as an economic advisor. When cast back into opposition, they couldn't find much to fault the new government on, apart from carping on about how their eugenics programme would be based on much sounder scientific principles. After the other New Zealand Provinces ejected the Axis-aligned Cantabrian government, the Progressives returned at the head of a government of radicalised guerilla partisans, who combined the maintenance of traditional party structures with the additional spice of being members of the Cominform. After Hungary, the regime liberalised (safe in the knowledge that not even the Cubans would intervene in such a minor outpost of Communism), just in time for oil shocks and stagflation.

General Upham, a scion of the Brittan clan, was a symbol of Cantabrian patriotism on account of his heroic actions in the New Zealand Civil War (his Rorke's Drift-style defence of the Hanmer Springs 'Health' Camp is the subject of a forthcoming film which is being protested by the Woke Left), and came out of semi-retirement to head a military government and impose the measures recommended by the IMF and the Australians. After this economic liberalisation, there was a period of political liberalisation in which the Progressives were kindly allowed to take part (they established the Canterbury Space Programme). But with the start of the War on Terror, Canterbury has followed the global trend towards authoritarianism.

There appears to be no possibility of ever getting a Super who isn't related to either the Rollestons or the Reeveses.

Technically true, sure, but the main point of prosecution was about the human trafficking, kidnapping, murder, etc. Ernie got in on it to, claiming he'd received reports of kids from foster homes were being flown out of state on private planes.
If anything the "satanist" bit was the random ritual aspects that cropped up in victim interviews.
...I've, uh, been doing a lot of research. Sorry to derail the thread.

1935-: Leo Amery (Conservative leading National Coalition)

1935 (‘National’ Majority) def: Oliver Baldwin (Labour), Winston Churchill (Constitutional), Minnie Lansbury (BSP), John Beckett (Social Credit), Cecil Malone (Liberal)

Cabinet of the National Government (1935-1937):

Prime Minister: Leo Amery (Conservative)
Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs: Anthony Eden (Conservative)
Chancellor of the Exchequer: Neville Chamberlain (Conservative)
Secretary of State for Home Department: Freddie Guest (National)
Secretary of State for the Colonies: Edgar Granville (National Liberal)

Secretary of State for War: Oswald Mosley (Conservative)
Secretary of State for India: The Marquess of Zetland (Conservative)
Secretary of State for Scotland: John Colville (Unionist)

Minister of Transport: Herbert Morrison (National Liberal)
Lord Chancellor: Viscount Halifax (Conservative)
Lord Privy Seal: Viscount Swinton (Conservative)
Lord President of the Council: Viscount Lloyd-George of Dwyfor (National Liberal)
Leader of the House of Lords: Marquess of Salisbury (Conservative)

“The 1935 election was a great shift in the politics of Britain, since the start of the initial Turkish epidemic crisis in 1931 and resulting recession, Walter Runciman, the once dynamic Social Liberal, found himself relying on the support of the Conservative’s to implement any policies. But members of his party rebelled with Cecil Malone, a fairly renegade Liberal MP and popular Spokesman for the party and free trade accused Runciman of ‘bringing Toryism via the Backdoor’. His own party disagreeing of his support for Protectionist ideas and increasingly Rightward talking points lead to Runciman calling for a National Government to deal with the crisis, inspired by a close political colleague Freddie Guest’s suggestion of such.

Even with his own party splitting, the combined force of National Liberal and Conservative have the Government an immense majority to work with. Implementing protectionist policies, cutting council budgets and working closely with Tory policies on social welfare and expenditure was the order of the day. This was additionally combined with half hearted attempts at Keynesian ideas like increasing rearmament programs and ‘National Service’ schemes to put unemployed man back to work in the Army or as part of ‘Morrison’s Men’ named after the Minister of Transport establishing roads and railroads across the nation.

As the 1935 election loomed, Runciman decided to step aside and let the Conservative Leader Leo Amery take over, so Runciman could focus more on trade and finance policies. Leo Amery considered dissolving the National Government to secure a true Tory victory but was dissuaded by Neville Chamberlain and Anthony Eden who believed that the National Government was a perfect ‘Anti-Socialist Alliance’ to combat the raising tide of Left Wing agitation across the country.

The Labour Party had been in high hopes in the early 20s only to see them collapse over the course of the decade as fears about Communist subversion, the 2nd French Revolution and raise of the BSP lead to the party being able to raise above the 80 seat mark. After Henderson’s confidence and supply deal failed in the long run leading to a large scale defection of a number of Fabian based ‘Bright Young Things’ the party had initially decided to elect the Centre candidate of Christopher Thomson. But a scandal involving a love affair with a married Romanian princess in 1932 caused Thomson to step down.

The Trade Unionist MPs of Manny Shillwell and Ernest Bevin and the Woodcraft Folk based MP Leslie Paul decided that they wanted a ‘Left’ candidate who would move away from fusty Fabianism and support ideals that there organisations supported; Democratic Socialism, Welfare States and Monetary Reform. Oliver Baldwin was to be that candidate, a man who proposed large trade union backed projects and deficit spending as a way to tackle unemployment. Baldwin would easily defeat a quixotic attempt by John Beckett who’s Nationalistic and Rightward message would lead to him leaving the Labour Party by the end of 1933 and joining the nascent Social Credit Party.

Baldwin would go on a barnstorming campaign speaking at workers rally’s, demonstrations and community gatherings up and down the country, preaching a Left Wing Populist message about the evils of the National Government.

In a similar capacity, Winston Churchill of the Constitutionalists would do the genial Right Wing Populist version of this, decrying the National Government as ‘State Socialism by Any Other Name’ and proposing ‘Progressive Conservativism as the way forward for all’ and extolled virtues of patriotism and imperialism to expectant crowds. The 1935 plan to bring about Indian Dominion-ship would play into Churchill’s hands as the election came.

The Liberal splinter lead by Cecil Malone was unable to strike the right tone, as the party was divided on issues of fiscal dry and wetness and a message that tried to extol themselves as being the only party that could save Britain in a schizophrenic fashion. Additionally the raise of the Social Credit movement as the force of there former Farmer and Celtic supporters would undercut Malone’s messaging to as the Social Credit party managed to become a force of Centrist, Anti-Establishment thought.

Minnie Lansbury took over a British Socialist Party that was dominate in Left Wing Trade Unions and certain cities but was unable to provided a clear message on the way forward. Additionally the parties increased reliance on French support and the largely foreign makeup of its membership lead to it being the target of xenophobic abuse and attack’s. Lansbury would manage to try and steer the party’s messaging away from Revolutionary fervour to more Democratic Socialist ideals but would be attacked by members of his party for ‘betraying the cause’.

Social Credit’s increased popularity in the wake of John Beckett’s joining of the party would be a godsend for the party but bad for John Hargreaves who had been increasingly left out in the cold in the aftermath of Leslie Paul taking much of the Kibbo Krift with him into the Labour Party. Beckett decide to oust the eccentric Hargreaves and the harness the force of the Anti-Establishment vote in rural villages and Celtic heartlands that had once gone the Liberals for his own ends. Accusations of increasingly Anti-Semitic language and funding from Michael Collins Sinn Féin would dampen the growth of the party but Beckett would be secure in the knowledge of beating Malone’s Liberals.

The election would see the National Government survive with a majority of about 40 seats, whilst Labour jumped from a low bar of 80 seats to about 200 seats in the House of Commons leading Labour to be the Official Leaders of Opposition for the first time in its history. The Constitutional party would gain seats too in the disaffected Tory heartlands whilst the Liberals collapsed in the wake of split votes in a number of constituencies leading to Social Credit and Labour gains in a number of them. Minnie Lansbury managed to keep the party steady but disagreements in political messaging and the increased domination of French Aligned Committee Members would lead to the party’s split in the late 30s.

Leo Amery would gain a second term for the National Government, but would find himself increasingly reliant on the National Liberals than ever before. As the 30s continued this reliance and the anger with it would lead to tensions and strife as time went on, particularly in the aftermath of Herbert Morrison’s succession as National Liberal Leader and the war brewing the Pacific...”

I do have to note that it really is a turkey epidemic (as in an epidemic of a zoonotic infectious disease contracted from avian species), but I can work with the Ottoman Empire being erroneously seen as an epicenter.

In a similar capacity, Winston Churchill of the Constitutionalists would do the genial Right Wing Populist version of this, decrying the National Government as ‘State Socialism by Any Other Name’ and proposing ‘Progressive Conservativism as the way forward for all’ and extolled virtues of patriotism and imperialism to expectant crowds.

Hopefully Amery and co. were not considering partitioning India. Also hopefully the Dominion doesn't collapse into ethnic strife and takeover by Subhas Chandra Bose some unchallenged strongman from day one.

What exactly bothers Churchill so much about the idea of an Indian dominion?

Leo Amery would gain a second term for the National Government, but would find himself increasingly reliant on the National Liberals than ever before.

Collins here is a Kemalist sort, in a grand coalition with Irish Labour and a Farmers Party who uses Monetary Reform and Secular Reform to help modernise Ireland. To help deal with the power of the Church, Collins often relies on Nationalist rhetoric and allusions to Celtic mythology. And Social Credit, a political organisation with a base in British Folk Culture and the Celtic Fringe is the perfect organisation to help support his aims.
I do have to note that it really is a turkey epidemic (as in an epidemic of a zoonotic infectious disease contracted from avian species), but I can work with the Ottoman Empire being erroneously seen as an epicenter.
I was thinking that, it being blamed on Turkey due to a translation error would work well in a ‘Ottoman Empire continues to wheeze’.
Hopefully Amery and co. were not considering partitioning India. Also hopefully the Dominion doesn't collapse into ethnic strife and takeover by Subhas Chandra Bose some unchallenged strongman from day one.
India would be a complete Dominion though it would be dealing with other problems, like a giant Nationalistic China on it’s border who sees potential in bothering it. Bose would be in the thick of it so who knows, maybe he’s some French inspired Communist or a general authoritarian etc.
What exactly bothers Churchill so much about the idea of an Indian dominion?
Churchill is arch Imperialist who has racist ideas about the ‘place’ of Indians so letting them run things is a big no no. This is part of Amery’s ‘Imperial Federation’ ideas which he doesn’t entirely agree with but anyway.

ALL HAIL BARON MORRISON, THE MAN OF THE HOUR
I realised that Morrison is the type of person who would defect if given a big enough slice of the pie. His ideals of ‘Fabian Decentralisation’ and Imperialism work well with folks like Eden and Chamberlain so...yeah.

Say, if you don't mind me asking, how do you envision Amery's relations with other big powers around that time?
I think he’s friendly with most of the members of the Great Concord, particularly Japan who he views a fellow Imperial nation who can help enforce the chaotic Republican Chinese. He’s cold on Russia, but is friendly enough.

Nations related to Germany are viewed poorly, though the Netherlands is complicated due to it being a more begruding member and all that. China is viewed as a threat who will likely be a danger in the coming years. Ireland and Britain’s have a frosty relationship but due to trade are friendly enough, Ireland being a neutral partner helps.

Yes. Bringing the Netherlands into the German sphere of influence was a Septemberprogramm goal, so yeah.

I'll be frank, I'm less sure about Indochina - I considered that it would likely stay a French colony, eventually transforming into an independent "Indochinese Union" following anti-Conseil mutinies, or become a German protectorate of sorts.

Cleveland is re-elected in 1888, the Democrats win again in 1892 under the gold standard. The panic of 1893 spirals into a depression, leading to a long series of strikes across the nation that is met with increasingly brutal methods from the government, culminating in a declaration of martial law. President Carlisle is assassinated and his vice president takes over and tries to make peace, but it's too late. The explosive labor movement comes to power waving the banner of the Populist Party, seizing control of the presidency, house, and many state and municipal governments. After the Democrats and Republicans ally in the Senate to block reform legislation, the Populists eventually force an earlier version of the 17th amendment, allowing for direct election of senators. The Populists pass lots of laws to protect labor and farmers. After Polk leaves office, highly popular New York Mayor Henry George becomes president and his Georgism becomes the defining ideology of the party. This drives away many of the socialists. After George dies in office, his vice president loses a split election due to the socialists. The dying Democratic establishment throws their lot in with blustering Republican filibusterer Theodore Roosevelt, who comes in to save business and start a war. His war is unpopular and he gets booted out by Eugene Debs, the most anti-war candidate. However, socialism has taken a back seat to Georgism, especially after the failures of the European socialists, so the mainline Populists come back with Baker. After that it's eternal Georgism with George de Valeroan characteristics.

De Valero is president for 42 years, but the second half of his presidency is dominated by Vice President and Secretary of State Lyndon Johnson until his death. Post-Johnson, everyone in the country scrambles to prepare for de Valero's impending death. The party bosses steer mild-mannered, honest Harold Hughes into the vice presidency, thinking he'll be easy to manipulate and/or depose after de Valero’s demise. The second option becomes the most likely once they realize he has no intention of playing ball with the crooks too comfortable in their high offices. They abandon him, weakening his control over the party apparatus and many wings of government. Much to their chagrin, this weakness is taken advantage of by the mad lad Edwin Edwards, who consolidates the local delegates from across the country and defeats party man George Bush to become president. Edwards soon realizes the massive bureaucracy of the government was controlled only by the sheer willpower of Lyndon Johnson and he has absolutely no way to gain control over it. The party bosses and administrators who consolidated their power in the long eon of de Valero now have completely unchecked ambition with their master out of the picture. They will stonewall Edwards just as they did Hughes and think they can wait a few more years to get their man, the one whom they will command, not be commanded by.

Furthermore, the declining popularity pure Georgism in the party means Edwards is unable to rely on the hardliners and the congressional party fractures as new variant ideologies emerge and middle-talent theorists attempt to supplant the great leaders. All of this coincides with a worldwide depression caused by the Chinese Revolution. Edwards gets bounced after just one term in office and the Texas Mafia (with the help of the actual Mafia) vaults Sissy Farenthold into the white house. Farenthold presides over the period of "de-Georgification", easing up on The Tax, and shocking the nation by increasing other taxes. This rankles a lot of feathers both in the political world and the general public. Moderate economic recovery earns Farenthold a second term, but soon enough the people decide they have had enough and want the old ways back, noticing sharp increases in the price of just about everything, cultural strife caused by conservative reaction, and an increasingly destabilized international outlook. Edwards cozies up to the union bosses who are rankled by murmurs of weakening labor power and market deregulation and they help him get back to the big house.

After a year of failing to wrangle the party, Edwards and his supporters form an alliance with the Socialists and re-orient around more socialist policies. Edwards delivers the so-called “Third Revolution”. Edwards retires after two successful terms in office and is succeeded by his hand-picked protégé, George Long, grandson of the only man who ever seriously challenged de Valero for the post. Long reconciles the two wings of the party and maintains the peace and stability introduced by Edwards. He is succeeded by consensus pick Lisa Halaby, daughter of long time party man and Johnson acolyte Najeeb Halaby. Edwards returns for another term in his old age due to the inability of the party to pick a new leader from among the many young hotshots who fancy themselves a new Edwards or de Valero. However, his time in office shows that Vice President Mongiardo is clearly calling the shots, and Mongiardo takes over in the next term. However, he is booted after one term in office by a coalition of those who fear the rise of another leader-for-life.

With Edwin Edwards now dead and the presidency held by a man who had no allegiance to either wing of the party before entering office, the internecine war is over, even though the old wounds remain. President Barkley rises above the political squabbling as a unifying figure. America is the undisputed power in the world and head of the global Georgist-socialist bloc. Although the Three Empires are nominally opposed to America due to self-interest, they are still subject to the winds of change, which occasionally blow them in the Georgist direction anyway.
