Oliver Hazard Perry (Citizens') 1815-1817
1816: suspended
Treaty of London signed 1817

"The Rebellion of 1776 was always headed to failure from the start. The Janus-headed revolution of Northern mercantilism and Southern agrarianism breeding starkly different views, once left alone revelled in its contradictions. The Northern mercantiles created the Merchant's Association, aka the 'Mercantile Party'. Due to trade interests still pinned with the mother country, the Mercantiles was always arguing against war with Britain, instead casting scepticism on America's relationship with the now unstable and revolutionary France. The 'Assembly of Citizens', aka the Citizens' Party, was direct from the Southern elite. Those people were the ones who saw France as a role model and was deep in Enlightenment thinking despite the sheer contradiction their words of liberty had with their acts of slavery.

With President Irwin authorising war against Britain in an incredibly divisive move in 1811, the stage was set for the most bitter election in the young republic's history, and by a slim hair Alexander Hamilton won. Hamilton was known to be a staunch opposer of allying with the 'barbarous' French and for a peace with Britain. The Citizens got antsy and paranoid talk of Hamilton 'signing away American liberties' spread. With the war turning shaky and John Jay sent to London to negotiate an amiable peace, many became convinced that Hamilton was a British spy came to undermine America. So Oliver Hazard Perry made his move.

The coup of 1815 destroyed the last facade of American 'democracy' and established that might made right. With President Hamilton rotting in an unknown cell, his faction was outraged and in London, William Pitt made his move. Declaring that Perry's regime was illegitimate, the British Government would 'welcome prodigial sons back into the fold'. As Perry and the Citizens' Party became more authoritarian and implemented 'Atrocious Acts that would blanch even the most dyed-blue Patriot', the Mercantiles shifted more and more towards Pitt's Promise. In the end, with little Vermont being the first to declare that Perry 'has made our whole Revolution all a Farce' shortly after the 1816 election was suspended 'in the Interests of national Order', many followed.

And with many states including his native Rhode Island (by a bitter and slim margin) defecting, Perry found that winning the war became impossible. And as British forces surrounded the White House, President Perry glumly realised that the cause was lost.

The Treaty that followed only recognised the inevitable - the United States was no more."

Decided to try an early 19th century USA list for the fun of it.

The decades long war is a nice touch there. I assume that the British held on in a few areas for quite a while?

she/her
Michael Bennet (Lib.-CO/MO/UE): Former leader of the Alliance of Imperial Liberals and Reformists, Deputy Prime Minister under Sylvia Lim, returned the party a disappointing result in the 2018 election and stepped down.

Joe Biden, Baron Biden of Fort Christina (PL/Lib.-DE/CL/UE): Probably a retired peer, long-time Premier of Delaware, two time candidate for the leadership of the Liberals, but never won [losing to Janine Haines who he was seen as being patronising to in the leadership debate [the "baby moment" is still something that haunts him], and to Hillary Clinton who emphasised the need of the party to move to appeal to "working women", undermining Biden's blue-collar appeal]. Fluent in Swedish. His sons Beau and Hunter are rising stars in the Delaware Liberals.

Cory Booker (PL/Lib.-NJ/CL/UE): Rising star in the Liberal backbench, known for being a charismatic man, even if a bit too ambitious [Bennet once described him as "making me feel my chair wasn't my own"] and eager to mark himself out. On every list for a future Liberal leadership election. Sometimes criticised for not being friendly to the NHS.

Steve Bullock (Lib.-MT/CO/UE): Currently the Premier of Montana in a somewhat peculiar Liberal-Reform coalition of the liberal-libertarian centre. The right [primarily represented by the PCs] and the left [PFL] sit in opposition, decrying the nevertheless-popular Bullock ministry for his reforms when they diverge from their preferred policies.

Pete Buttigieg (Ind.-IN/OC/UE): Independent Mayor of Southold, Indiana. Rumoured to be meeting with Indiana Liberals for a run for the legislature and a quick kick up to the front bench since he's considered surprisingly well-known for a mayor. But then, the Moderates have been talking with him for a possible leadership bid? Which is surprising. What is certain, is that for Pete, his future is full of promise.

Julián Castro (Ref.-NUC/TX): One of the Castro twins, both Reform [although their mother was one of the first Chicano League members] and both in the cabinet, and relatively popular. Polls have it that they both would probably walk over any others for the presidential nomination for the next election, and they both are somewhat interested but have emphasised "family comes first". The next President of Texas could be decided at a family meeting in San Antonio. Texas waits eagerly to hear their decision.

Bill de Blasio (Dem./DL/SDP-NY/CL/UE): The long-time Premier of New York City, he is nevertheless on shaky ground recently as his own party mutter that he needs to step down amidst concerning polls that project slim Renew New York leads.

John Delaney (Prog./PL/SDP-MD/CL/UE): A Social Democratic backbencher, and considered a "Blairite". The party left has tried to deselect him and failed, much to their annoyance. But he doesn't seem to be going anywhere, and it's quietly expected that after his next complaint about Lim's "ineffective partisan" leadership, he might try defecting to the PCs or something, and lose his seat next election.

Tulsi Gabbard (Lab.-HI): Leader of the Labour Party of Hawaii, and Deputy Prime Minister of Hawaii. Labour has historically been a very "workerist" party and hardly welcome to social-liberals, and Tulsi was considered more of the same due to her historical hardline opposition to LGBT rights, but in 2016 she publicly declared that the party was to shift its positions "to be truly aloha to all", and easily won a leadership election afterwards. Very much someone liked by the global progressives, but some mutter that she haven't really changed her stances on other matters. Rumours that she's backed by foreign money is sometimes heard, but only by the Opposition.

Tina Rutnik (PL/Lib.-NA/CL/UE): Progressive Liberal member of the Columbian Parliament and Leader of the Opposition. Dutch-speaking and proud of it, despite being from a family originally hailing from Slovenia. Polls suggest that she might become the first Dutch-speaking First Minister of Columbia since... FDR? [ATL Kirsten Gillibrand]

Maurice Gravel, Baron Gravel of Vasiliya (Lbt.-AK/CN/UE): Long-time Libertarian, known as a firm anti-socialist in his youth yet firm in his condemnation of war crimes. Fluent in English, French [his mother's tongue] and Russian [Alaska's language], he is considered "Captain Canada" for his tireless campaign against the Alaskan dominionhood referendum of 1987. Retired and made a peer in 1992, he was called out of retirement to end Ron Paul's hold on the national Libertarian Party "that was turning it into one that defended terror". Allying with the left he once distrusted, he won the election and with the right of the party, including next leader Bob Barr, thumped into agreeing to "no more wars", he stepped down and is now merely a retired peer, although his social media has gotten interesting lately.

Kamala Harris (UL-SF/CA): United Left Governor of San Francisco, dual citizen of Britain and California [via parentage] and considered a fairly popular person overall, even if the Ecologists often criticise her for her hardline stance on crime. She has defended it by declaring "we need to ensure law and order in order to create progress".

Sir John Hickenlooper (Lib.-CO/MO/UE): Well-renowed British geologist and pioneer in geological research, he was knighted by the Queen-Empress for his work, and later on quietly entered the Coloradan Assembly as a Liberal, before being made Minister of Environment once the Liberals won the election. Rumoured to be considering a possible "kicking upstairs" to the Lords.

Jay Inslee (Grn.-OR/UE): Former leader of the Oregon Green Party from 1999 to 2008, he was known for selling the Greens as "Oregon's middle of the river" party and led it to higher prominence before handing over to his protege Blair Wilson. One of the new talent that arrived into the Imperial Parliament on the party list in the 2010 elections, he has been a workhorse and despite his advancing age, some say that he is the ideal successor to May and the one who could further the "mainstreaming" of Green politics.

Amy Klobuchar (PFL-MN/MO/UE): First Minister of Missouri, leading a PFL-Liberal coalition, she is a reasonably popular leader, although allegations of workplace abuse has led some to say that maybe she should step down and quietly accept a honourable retirement, with maybe a peerage in it for her.

Wayne Messam (Lab/SDP-JA/UE): Labour Member of the Jamaican Parliament, he is known as someone who is a young rising star and a passionate voice on the party's left, leading some to mark him as a future leader one day.

Seth Moulton (Lib.-MA/UE): Rising star in the New England Liberal benches, he was appointed Shadow Minister of Social Services in the Shadow Cabinet of [REDACTED], and considered a possible leader in the 2020s.

Richard Ojeda (Lab/SDP-VA/UE): Known as a strong voice on the party's left, but a distinct one, he has a list seat at the moment, but in his prospective campaign for the leadership once Manchin retires, he promises to run for a constituency seat. Strong, brash and uncompromising, he promises to shake things up.

Beto O'Rourke (Ref.-PEC/TX): Reform Congressman from Pecos, and a popular local politician. Some hope he'll enter the race for president, or at least throw his hat in when Wendy Davis inevitably retires as Premier. Seems to be trying to portray himself as left-wing and a friend to the Constitutionalists at the same time, apparently.

Tim Ryan (PLab./SDP-WC/OC/UE): The young and freshly-elected Premier of Western Connecticut, he has promised "a new era of change will come". Some dispute this as he is a protege of former Premier Jim Traficant and leads his old party [the Progressive Labour Party], and has dubbed his victory "a return to WC's sad old days".

Bernie Sanders (SDP-VT/NE/UE): Long-time Premier of Vermont, and the one who oversaw the final shift of it from "Yankee Country" to red soil, he currently represents it in the Imperial Parliament. A grey eminence and elder statesman, he has been a firm ally of Sylvia Lim against any criticism from the left. Some say his old opposition to being appointed to the Lords have weakened lately, especially with the SDP at a numerical disadvantage there. And the title of "Duke of Vermont" hasn't been used since the 1970s...

Sir Joe Sestak (SDP-PA/CL/UE): A distinguished man who served in the Imperial Navy and rose to the rank of Vice Admiral, he has stayed out of politics for the most part, but it is known that he is a member of the Social Democrats.

Eric Swalwell (PNE-SF/CA): A well-known soccer player for California in the Commonwealth Games, he became more political and retired from the game in 2010 before entering the San Fransciso Assembly as a New State Party member, and some say he has potential to become a leader one day, or at least a senior cabinet member.

Elizabeth Warren, Baroness Warren of Pottawatomie (SDP-MA/NE/UE): A well-known Louisianan economist, she hailed from Pottawatomie in western North Arkansaw, and became well-known as a Harvard University professor and advisor to the Layton and Lim ministries, which got her made a peer, surprisingly not of anywhere in Massachusetts, but her birth city of Pottawatomie. She sits in the Lords as a Social Democrat.

Marianne Williamson (Ind.-PL/CA): A Texan-Californian, she is one of California's most prominent spiritual advisors, she has a globally broadcast show - The Marianne Show - and uses the profits from her books to fund charities to fight for "peace and compassion to all". Some say she plans for an Independent campaign to the Senate in her home region of Pelona. Who knows if she can win. But she's certainly well-known enough.

Andrew Yang (Lbt.-NY/CL/UE): A well-known economist who wrote what is basically the left-Libertarian book The War on Normal People, he is an ally of Marie Ruwart against the party right, but is known to be more radical than Ruwart is. A list MP since the 2015 election, he is angling to be leader after Ruwart steps down, which has gotten him a strong rivalry from rising right-Libertarian star Daniel Hannan.

Presumably he co-wrote that book with Angela Nagle.

Tammany Parties

Before the 1960s, NY politics was famously inscrutable, with the "fusion" system meaning there was a gaggle of different parties overlapping and somehow governments were formed with a stable majority due to very low party loyalty, a culture of opportunism and the strong influence of machines. Tammany Hall was one such machine, but in NY, it wasn't even a majority.

Some times, those mirage parties became some sort of reality, like with La Guardia and the Progressive-Good Government League, but upon the death or retirement of a strong leader, those parties often just dissolved back to ethereal nothingness. Then came the 60s.

Vincent Impellitteri was hardly the best choice for a reformer. He was on paper a member of the "United City League", the latest front for Tammany, which just managed to return to power through momentum and opportunistic members defecting to back its leader. And to many he seemed like just yet another Tammany man. But he often clashed with the "boss" at the time and upon being told he would not receive the United City line because of this, he bolted and with other opportunists set up the "Democratic Alternative".

At first it was only a name. A catchy name, but merely one. But then some of their politicians noticed that when they started talking about "reform of the electoral system", they got interest. NY people were generally unhappy with their system that seemed to remove decision from their hands and put it into vague interests. So the decision was made, to implement electoral reform. And as the party gained steam, more and more defectors applied for the DA fusion line. United City did all they could and reduced the potential government to a minority. Eager to throw out the potential reform, they were shocked to see the Progressives [well, what members counted as such] throw their hats in with Impellitteri. Electoral reform would end up abolishing fusion for good.

Over the following decades, the New York political system cemented itself. DA ended up merging with the left-wing PDP to form the Democratic Party, the Progressives had a split that led to John Lindsay's Renew New York, the conservatives and some disgruntled "traditionalist" workers formed the Non-Partisan League, and those became the main three parties of this New York.

Oh, sure there were still upsets, like when Michael Bloomberg's Movement for Betterment surged to a shock first in 1991 riding off high disillusionment with the "big three", but things seem to be much more stable. But as we enter the fourteenth year of left-wing rule, perhaps New York just exchanged fusionist chaos for eternal proportional rule by Democrats?

Commanders of the Integrated Nations Mandate of Chugdam (1939-)
İsmail Kundakçı (Independent, Military) 1939-


With the bizarre alliance of the fascists and communists now defeated in Chugdam, the south lands are now lost for ever as the rump republic, in one of the last acts before total surrender, is forced to officially give up any claims to those lands, which are now recognised as "integral parts of Bozan and Niksya". The nation is in ruins, their pride lost, and the foreign occupiers are in charge.

But perhaps, there's still hope? As the defeated people gather their lives before them, there is no way things can get worse, surely. Surely?
