--> '''Topper:''' ''"Mates, it's official now: The 9th of November is the most uninteresting day in German history!"''[[note]]In our world, this day stands for: The revolution of 1918, which ended UsefulNotes/ImperialGermany and started the WeimarRepublic; UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler's unsuccessful putsch in 1923; the Reichspogromnacht of 1938, making the lives of German Jews much worse; and the fall of TheBerlinWall in 1989.[[/note]]

Even [[AlternateHistoryWank absorbs the old motherland]] at one point. Becomes a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything political]] [[WeimarRepublic clusterfuck]] and quickly [[PuttingOnTheReich puts on the Reich]] as a so-called technocracy, [[WordOfGod a crossbreed]] of ''"Prussia, the GDR and the American military-industrial complex should it ever seize power."'' Not that [[BlackAndGreyMorality its]] [[TheMafia major]] [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain opponents]] were really [[CrapsackWorld more pleasant in this regard]].

* ADegreeInUseless:\\\
Subverted. The German technocracy [[HardOnSoftScience generally scoffs at anyone studying humanities]], minimizing their teaching to a "harmless enough" level, afraid of the potentially rising threat of [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill pro-democratic freethinkers]]. Education in "hard sciences" and general blue collar vocational training is encouraged, supplemented by a BreadAndCircuses approach in state propaganda.\\\

* EasyLogistics:\\\
Commenters raised one or another eyebrow about transporting six- to seven-figure numbers of soldiers across the Atlantic in each direction during this world's UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The author responded that several factors like bigger navies on both sides [[note]]That of Italia Nuova '''alone''' was supposed to be bigger than that of the USA in our world.[[/note]] and improved technology would work it out, but also confessed that [[RuleOfCool there wouldn't be a world war in this world if it wouldn't]] because the odds were [[CurbStompBattle so one-sided in each half of the world]].
