* CommieNazis: Political affiliation was left ambiguous, though deliberately negative. He was a nationalist, to be sure, yet the Orwellian association of calling transparent war machines "machines of peace" by his spokesman is an allusion to state propaganda practiced by both commies and Nazis.

Added DiffLines:

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Subtly, but 1's eyes have larger, fewer irising shutters to give his eyes an angular, stern look.
