* 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.

* AuthorAvatar: WordOfGod says the in-universe discussion board character "flibbertygibbet" most closely represents one of the authors' (Jello_Biafra) views. The in universe poster "Mental Omega" is also based on another of the Authors (The Red Star Rising).


Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: The in universe posters RitterStahl, Cheka, RuleBritannia and CyberDoctor are generally thoroughly dislikable people, being a dyed in the wool West German Wehraboo, a Stalin apologizing Tankie, a hardliner Franco-British conservative, and an Ayn Rand worshipping objectivist respectively. While not actually dumb, they tend to be rude, abrasive, and hostile to those they disagree with.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* Henry Ford: Flees America to join with Nazi Germany when he sees the writing on the wall in America, teaming up with Albert Speer to build up the economies of the Axis to be better suited for total war. Ends up executed following a guilty verdict at the Nuremburg trials.

* FaceHeelTurn: [=Macarthur=]'s betrayal of the US government. [[spoiler: Henry Ford himself flees to Nazi Germany and becomes a fierce supporter of Adolf Hitler]].



** [[spoiler: Henry Ford, after fleeing to the US, joins up Hitler and becomes an armament minister. His arrogance and belief in Nazi superiority leads him to put his marque on everything he's built, including weapons he built including slave labor. When Germany is defeated, [[ImplausibleDeniability he is unable to deny his highly visible role in Nazi atrocities]], as gets as much mercy as you would expect at the hands of the UASR]].
