** CallARabbitASmeerp: Justified, since history diverged in 1200 and people could well invent different names for things. E.g. America is called ''Atlantis'', teddy bears are ''mishkas'' since they were invented in Russia, computer hackers are ''Logos'' (from 'logic'), ''{{angst}}'' is called ''horreur'', a blitzkrieg is a ''molniya'' (Russian for 'lightning'), tanks are ''Walzen'' ('steamrollers' in German), capitalism is ''monetarism'' etc.

* SchizoTech: Some of the sciences and technological advances are discovered or perfected earlier than in our history, Novorossiya e.g. invents the telegraph and electrical devices nearly a century before it happened in our history. Let's just say that a resident from that timeline would compare our real world's present tech level with his 1960s at best.

* ChristianityIsCatholic: Other than in our world, Catholic Christianity didn't split except for some minor fringe movements, but power gradually shifted to the governments of the Catholic nations, somehow akin to the Anglican Church or Gallican Church in our world whose rituals and doctrine were mostly kept unchanged. E.g. in Nippon, the tenno is the head of the country's Catholic Church! UsefulNotes/ThePope was gradually reduced to a mere figurehead, but this changed unexpectedly again when he had to go to [[strike:Australia]] [[strike:Tirland]] [[OverlyLongGag Antipodia]] after the revolution in Britain.

Even [[AlternateHistoryWank absorbs the old motherland]] at one point.

Not that [[BlackAndGreyMorality its]] [[TheMafia major]] [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain opponents]] were really [[CrapsackWorld more pleasant in this regard]].

* {{Eagleland}} Speaking German. In both parts of [[strike:the Americas]] Atlantis. [[note]]Guess which ethnicity most Americans in our lifetime claim to hail from? Right, the Germans. Guess where else in the New World Germans liked to settle? Right, Southern Brazil and the Plata countries.[[/note]] And appropriately, this Germany has three eagles in its crest, among them a condor that got dubbed as an "Andean eagle" in this world.\\\
