* TheMafia: ''La Famiglia'', which seizes full political power in the Italian empire after it loses UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne and its ruler is forced to abdicate. Also a subversion, since they're in fact [[MixAndMatch a mixture]] of TheMafia and the [[UsefulNotes/FascistItaly fascists]]. Note that in our world, the fascists and the mafia were enemies!

* UsefulNotes/{{Hollywood}}: Well, except that it's named Paradies, and located in the place of our Rio de Janeiro.



* UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfBruce

* UsefulNotes/ColdWar: At the latter half of the 20th century, the three major superpowers fighting for balance with each other are the German technocracy, the Socialist Block and the Chinese Empire.

This AlternateHistory timeline published at AlternateHistoryDotCom is described by its author @/MaxSinister as "the Mount Everest of AH". It starts with the death of Genghis Khan in 1200 (thus preventing the Mongol conquest of Russia, China and Persia) and goes until the year 1993. History changes ''[[ButterflyOfDoom a lot]]'' compared to our world, [[{{Applicability}} although some patterns seem to reappear]].

* TheBeautifulGame: When national teams from the Socialist Block were allowed to compete in a world cup for the very first time, their Englishmen bring German Bavaria a painfully shameful defeat in the finals after penalties. [[note]]In RealLife, teams like England and Italy are considered infamous for sucking at penalites (though the Italians got better as seen in 2006), while teams like Germany and Argentina are considered gods in this discipline, the latter only ever been beaten by the former (also in 2006) who never was.[[/note]]

* Terramici are the environmentalists of this world - the same term used in ''DecadesOfDarkness''. Except for the fact that it's Latin-based in DoD and Italian-based in Chaos.
* Mokkers, the gang members of this timeline, have a similar name to the mukkers from ''StandOnZanzibar''.
