** Society and technology in general are a mix of this and WorldWarI, or rather "imperfect" recreations of them. Justified in part, due to a good deal of modern technology becoming useless with the End of Oil. Not to mention the whole thing being a deliberate effort create an "idealized" version of Americana.

* TheThemeParkVersion: Of late 19th Century and WorldWarI America, which the Dominion and its supporters deliberately cultivated over generations.

* LostSuperweapon: tanks, planes, satellites - all gone once the oil ran out.

Added DiffLines:

* StillWearingTheOldColors: In a twisted sense, officials of the Dominion don attire based on the dress uniforms of the United States Air Force, a nod to their origins in the USAF.

* FeudalFuture: Because people during the End needed to eat, they willingly became serfs. Unfortunately, the system of serfdom became entrenched, persisting into the relative prosperity of post-Peak Oil society.

Unfortunately, the system of serfdom became entrenched, persisting into the relative prosperity of post-Peak Oil society. In addition, the return of an industrial working class in the cities is beginning to put said serfdom to the test.



* RuinsOfTheModernAge: There are still a good deal of abandoned ruins in the countryside, but many have long been salvaged of anything useful. Places like Montreal and New York on the other hand still preserve some shreds of their pre-Fall glory but for the most part have been cannibalized to the point of being unrecognizable.

While Washington DC in particular is mentioned as a swamp ruin which the government has been trying to reclaim for years.



** Seems to be a mixture from roughly the Civil War to about the First World War. Telegraphs seem common, as do Steam engines, but telephones and all sorts of wireless communication systems seem non-existent. Only a single reference to an internal combustion engine is made, and it is an alcohol fueled generator at that. Electricity exists only for illumination and only then for those who can afford their own generation system and typewriters are hand-made by craftsmen. No cars or airplanes, yet there are silent films- although going to see one is a much grander affair then it is now. Machine guns are available to cavalry units, yet Artillery now exists only in the form of Cannons- The U.S. Navy seems to have forgotten the lesson of the Monitor.
** Major cities like Montreal and New York were (re)built over the remains of their 21st Century incarnations, with some shreds of modern architecture still surviving here and there beneath under the generally Victorian/Edwardian aesthetics.

* FightingForAHomeland: It's suggested that the the Mitteleuropan armies at large, much of which are of Dutch descent continue fighting on so as to find a new place to call their own after their ''old'' homeland drowned beneath the waves.

See also ''Literature/FitzpatricksWar'' for a similar premise, albeit with a more deconstructive bent.

* UsefulNotes/TheEuropeanUnion: From the information and propaganda mentioned, it's implied that ''Mitteleuropa'' could likely be a German-controlled EU remnant. It's also mentioned in passing that England is a nominal member of the alliance, [[WithEuropeButNotOfIt though it would rather stay out of it]].
