* TheKingdom: Andorra, Luxembourg, Monaco and arguably Japan fit the bill, as do the British survivour nations Newolland, Cleveland and Northumbria. And it's also implied that a reunified France would also become this in the future, due to the Duke of Orleans being an influential figure (and having his own survivor nation near former Paris).
** Liechtenstein serves this role as well within the [[TheFederation Alpine Confederation]], while Hawaii tries to be this as well (even though it is apart of the ANZC).

* RightfulKingReturns: Averted. George H.W. Bush survived Doomsday, but realized that trying to unite the US was impossible, and disbanded the provisional government.

* CultureChopSuey: Some parts of the world wind up experiencing this trope to some degree thanks to refugees, mass migrations and a variety of post-apocalyptic reasons. Mexico has an English-speaking minority and baseball teams, the ANZ Commonwealth has taken in a few American influences, Socialist Siberia is increasingly (and bilingually) Russian-Chinese and New Britain could be best described as an Afrikaner mirror of the old United Kingdom.

The scenario inspired a contributor to create a fanfiction collection called ''Fanfic/NineteenEightyThreeDoomsdayStories'', which [[{{Crossover}} crosses over]] with ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''. There is also another series by the name of ''Fanfic/ASplinteredMan'', which is set in the Doomsday Stories AU, but eventually expands to the ''RDNAVerse''.

There is also a unofficial timeline, "EagleDownUnder" where it talks about what would probably and is likely happen in the future of the Doomsday timeline. Be warned though it is DarkerAndEdgier, but yet it is so very possible.

* RetroUniverse: Despite being set in the present day much of the world doesn't look like it would fit in our 21st century. For example technology and culture have only advanced to early 90s levels at best. Many real world defunct nations are still around or have since been revived. Communism is still a major factor in world politics. In extreme cases some less fortunate survivor communities look more like they came out of the Middle Ages rather than the modern era.

** For some countries such as Madagascar, history in the 1983 timeline proceeds almost exactly the same as in our own timeline, with the same important events happening at the same dates and involving the same people.

The 1980's will pretty much be forever known in this alternate present as the decade where Doomsday happened and the aftermath of it.



* GargleBlaster: There is an article devoted to alcohol. One of the drinks mentioned is Poi-chin, the Cleveish form of poitin, aka Irish potato whiskey, which is about 60-80% ABV, has an unoffical age limit that is three years older than the legal drinking age, and can apparently ''get you drunk again the day after you drink it'' because even plain water will bring the remaing ethanol back into solution.

*** Overall though, the US is never going to become a world power like it previously was and the mostly thing that will happen in future of the timeline is that US will only be consisting itself on along the Pacific Northwest coast to the Midwest. The East Coast will never rejoin the United States since by the future all the new countries existing there will see themselves no longer wishing to rejoin America and their own citizens will see themselves as their own national identities.

** Many of the nations worst affected on Doomsday still exist into the present, but are often mere remnants of their former selves. For example the People's Republic of China was only recently discovered to have a small fraction of its former territory and population, while France's overseas territories outside of Europe are all that remain of the former Republic.

On September 26, 1983, there was a false alarm in the Serpukhov-15 bunker near Moscow which reported that four missiles were heading toward the USSR from America. In RealLife, the officer on duty was Colonel Stanislav Petrov, who realised that it didn't make any sense for the US to attack with only four missiles and logged it as a technical error, which it in fact was, rather than reporting it to his superiors (which, by protocol, he should have done - and they would likely have had a more belligerent response.) Because of his sound judgment, nuclear war was averted and countless lives saved.
