Neither did it stop the Soviets from [[MoralEventHorizon destroying Vienna and attempting to invade Austria via Hungary.]] Then again, like in the source timeline, they also turn out to be one of the more dominant powers in the wasteland.

** Switzerland is familiar enough with WorldWarIII scenarios to not only have [[CrazyPrepared various fallout shelters and emergency measures on standby]]. But also know that Austria's persistent HopeSpot on Hungary's fate would not end well.
** It's rubbed off on Liechtenstein as well, who's shown to have a military-grade bunker hidden ''right under her house.''
** Austria's shown to have this as well, especially in ''[[DarkerAndEdgier The Vanishing Shadows]]'', wherein he leads a rescue [[HollywoodTactics straight out of an old war movie]]. Or rather, [[BewareTheNiceOnes his old battlefield memories]] as he ''knows'' how outdated it all is. But in this case, he cares more about [[PapaWolf saving Sopron]] than modern warfare.

A number of other fics also take place at some point in the historical past, the most far back taking place in 1867.
