Describes twelve timelines (six in each book) in loving detail.

* GoodRepublicEvilEmpire: Played broadly straight with the Republican Alliance being firmly represented as the good guys. That said some of the monarchies - Britain and Louisiana - are presented as not ''that'' bad and conversely the American Commownwealth is a HolierThanThou quasi-theocracy.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: They genuinely want to [[WhiteMansBurden civilize other timelines]] and prevent them from having an apocalyptic war like their own timeline had. It's just that they believe pretty strongly that end justifies means... and they don't care much if others disagree with their views on civilization.
