* ChineseWithChopperSupport / TheOtherChineseArmy : The Republic of China is in the Comintern side thanks to Reed's negotiations,so the name National Revolutionary Army is still used.



* GaulsWithGrenades: France makes up an important, if less talked about part of the capitalist bloc in its union with the United Kingdom. Notably, in this timeline, when the Nazis push west; they mostly only overrun France because they're moving in support of far-right coup in what amounts to a brief French Civil War.



* KatanasOfTheRisingSun: While not nearly as focused on as their German allies, Imperial Japan still constitutes a major threat to the Allies and Comintern in world war two, and still prosecutes a *brutal* war against China.



* RedsWithRockets : Still bore the brunt of the fighting in the Eastern Front.

*** ''People's Alliance/Alliance Populaire'': the party of perpetual government in the post-WW2 era, formed in 1949 from the ad hoc alliance between the British Conservative Party and the French Rally of Popular Republicans. The People's Alliance has constructed the economy along corporatist lines, establishing pro-business "patriotic unions" and doling out patronage through a sophisticated system of state capitalism to ensure social stability. On social stability, they've hold back women, minority and LGBT movements and only making reforms opportunistically.

* FictionalPoliticalParty: Played with; as the TL develops, new political parties form, but usually out of existing political parties. And the parties that have the same name tend to have diverged in radically different ways to become InNameOnly versions of their OTL counterparts. ** In the present day, the American major parties, from the political right to left, are:
*** True Democrats: the designated traitor party. The drain trap that catches everything that won't accomodate to the revolution, becoming the mirror image of Western communist parties in our world.
*** The Democratic-Republican Party: The resident mainstream right-wing party, although mostly center-left in Real Life. It's a catchall for the progressive political center- they approach socialism from a mutualist [[note]]an anarchist school of thought which advocates a market-based alternative to capitalism based around workers' associations (cooperatives)[[/note]] perspective. They favor markets and limited property relations. UsefulNotes/RonPaul serves Secretary-General (chief of staff and second-in-command). Think a communist American version of IRL libertarians.
*** Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party: the former left-wing of the Democratic Party, they approach socialism from a christian perspective, and are largely left-wing nationalists.
*** Communist Labor Party: the former center and right-wing of the Workers' Party, they place a greater emphasis on Marxism, support a more statist economy and are largely centrist on social issues.
*** Liberation Party: the left-wing splinter from the Workers' Party, founded as [[Main/EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Liberation Communist Party]]. They're Left Communists [[note]]a term refering to communist that hold views to the left of Bolsheviks, usually of an anarcho-communist and internationalist position[[/note]] who want to push foward the world revolution and have a strong libertine streak.
*** Social Ecological Union: Greens, with libertarian marxist and social anarchist wings. The Champions of environmental diversity and stability, the SEU qualifies as far-left by any standard and generally supports full worker control over the economy, . Party leader Alix Olson is the current Premier of the US.

*** Liberty/Liberté: the predominant right-wing opposition in the FBU, it does not style itself as a political party [[Main/NoExceptYes in spite of electing representatives to local and national government]]. It's mostly composed of [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic an armed paramilitary wing]] and [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Venture Capitalists]], Liberty styles itself as an ideologically liberal organization but is willing to support authoritarian measures to battle communism.
*** Labour Party/Parti d'Ouvriers: the merger between the UK's Labour Party and the French Section to the Workers' International (SFIO), it is a big tent left-wing party that suffered from the flight of the right-wing to the People's Alliance, the party leadership was taken over by Marxists and the center dwindled. It's under constant attack from the corporate media and the StateSec.
*** Communist Party: officially known as [[Main/OverlyLongName Entente Section of the Communist International]], has remained unified under a general program of revolutionary socialism. Since the seventies, the Communists are the hotbed of identity politics including feminist, LGBT liberation and multicultural thought.

* BritsWithBattleships: Apparently the senior partner in the Franco-British Union and by extension the leader of the Western European union and the whole of the capitalist world. The British armed forces are noted as entering the second world war substantially more prepared in terms of equipment, having intently studied the wars of the thirties and having had two years to watch the Axis-Comintern conflict. Their entrance makes it substantially easier for America to send troops into the Soviet Union for one thing.



* UsefulNotes/ColdWar: A three-way affair between a Stalinist SovietUnion, a democratic socialist America and the Capitalist Franco-British Union, all with assorted allies. By the 21st century it has thawed but no fully ended.



* UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo: Threatened by the Communist governments in Moscow and Washington, Britain and France doesn't go to war over Poland in '39, leaving Germany to attack the Russians in 1940. American troops fight on the eastern front and western Europe enters the war in 1942 after an attempted German invasion of France.
* UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne: The US enters the war in 1914, leaving an entire American generation disillusioned and radicalized.
