During [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI The First Weltkrieg]], the [[UsefulNotes/ImperialGermany German Empire]] ends their unrestricted submarine warfare after their sinking of RMS ''Lusitania'', preventing the United States from joining the Entente. In 1918, the Kaiserliche Marine defeats the Royal Navy at the Second Battle of Jutland, ending the British naval blockade. With renewed strength, the Kaiserreich launches a great offensive in Spring 1919, pushing the frontline to Paris. With their army defeated and morale destroyed, a socialist revolution founded on the ideology of Syndicalism overthrows the Third French Republic, exiling the government to North Africa and creating the Commune of France.

During The Kaiserreich timeline departs from ours during [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI The First Weltkrieg]], when the [[UsefulNotes/ImperialGermany German Empire]] ends their unrestricted submarine warfare after their sinking of RMS ''Lusitania'', preventing the United States from joining the Entente. In 1918, the Kaiserliche Marine defeats the Royal Navy at the Second Battle of Jutland, ending the British naval blockade. With renewed strength, the Kaiserreich launches a great offensive in Spring 1919, pushing the frontline to Paris. With their army defeated and morale destroyed, a socialist revolution founded on the ideology of Syndicalism overthrows the Third French Republic, exiling the government to North Africa and creating the Commune of France.

Added DiffLines:

** If [=MacArthur=] is able to lead the United States to victory in the Second American Civil War, he has the option of ceding power back to a democratically elected government or seize control of the nation as a president for life. If [=MacArthur=] chooses the latter, he immediately destroys all of the federal government's credibility, ends up being assassinated, and the United States permanently breaks apart into smaller independent nations.

Added DiffLines:

*** New England can be seen as pragmatists that don't want to get involved in a war they know they have no hope of winning, or as cowards who refuse to fight and may go so far as to turn to Canada, controlled by the same crown that once ruled over the original 13 Colonies, for protection.

Added DiffLines:

** One of CSA's military focuses has this line originally spoken by General Shepherd from ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare2'':
-->"Tomorrow there will be no shortage of volunteers, no shortage of patriots."

Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, the South and Central American countries can take advantage of the Second Civil War to settle scores and attack each other, which couldn't happen under the Munroe Doctrine. Japan may also seek US holdings in the Pacific.


* InvadedStatesOfAmerica: In IV, Canada has various options to approach the Second American Civil War. Some of them include annexing New England and Upstate New York with its permission to protect them, then choose to keep it for themselves, annex Alaska, and annex the Panama Canal, as well as take various sides in the war.

** Mexico also has the option of invading the United States to take back territory they had lost in the Mexican-American wars, such as California and Texas.

Added DiffLines:

*** If Pacific States of America see themselves as the last bastion of the true spirit of America's ideals of liberty as the other factions devolve into chaos, totalitarianism, and corruption. They can also be seen as opportunists looking to secede from the Union while the other factions are too busy fighting each other.

Added DiffLines:

** The United States can be balkanized if the 2nd American Civil War kicks off, and split into as many as 6 distinct nations. Parts of the east coast and midwest remain in the hands of the United States, the Great Lakes area becomes the Combined Syndicates of America, the south becomes the American Union State, and the west coast becomes the Pacific States of America. Hawaii can break off to be its own indpendent nation, New England can become independent or be annexed by Canada.

Added DiffLines:

Meanwhile, having remained committed to neutrality, the United States does not intervene in the war. While having benefited greatly from supplying the Allied powers, the defeat of Britain and France and Germany's stranglehold on global trade prevents the US from being able to recover its investments in Europe, dealing massive economic damage. With the economy in chaos, the formerly entrenched Republican and Democratic parties begin to see their influence wane as more extreme Syndicalist and technocratic political parties rise to power. This sharply divides the American populace, and there are whispers of a 2nd American Civil War approaching.

Added DiffLines:

** Even some of the national populists and totalists themselves will have shades of Grey. On the far right of the spectrum, the Intetgralists in Portugal and Brazil tend to be racially tolerant and treat their subjects relatively benevolently unless they step out of line. On the far left of the Spectrum, the American totalists and the Australasian totalists will push to end racial inequality and enact wide sweeping social reforms within their respective nations.


** The UsefulNotes/SpanishCivilWar once again happens in the 1930s, but with many differences compared to real life. It happens in the Spanish Kingdom instead of the Spanish Republic. There are three sides instead of two, and are between Carlists, Alfonsists, and Anarcho-Syndicalists instead of between Republicans and Fascists. [[https://www.reddit.com/r/Kaiserreich/comments/d49j3j/new_spanish_civil_war_leak_from_discord/ A rework currently under development]] plans to change the Spanish Civil War to a war between a Monarchist coalition (led by Alfonsists, but the Carlists can coup them) and a Republican coalition (which can break down into liberal Republicans and Anarcho-Syndicalists for a three-sided civil war).

* MeleeATrois: The three main factions that will almost always be formed over the course of the game are the [[TheRemnant Entente]][[note]]The Dominion of Canada, National France, Sardinia, Dominion of India, Australasian Confederation, and the West Indies Federation[[/note]], the [[CommieLand Third Internationale]][[note]]The Commune of France, Union of Britain, and Socialist Republic of Italy[[/note]], and the [[{{Kaiserreich}} Reichspakt]][[note]]The German Empire, the United Baltic Duchy, Flanders-Wallonia, Lithuania, White Ruthenia, Ukraine, Belorussia, Mittelafrika, and Denmark[[/note]]. The [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld Co-Prosperity Sphere]][[note]]The Empire of Japan, Transamur, and the Fengtian Government[[/note]] can also rise to power in East Asia, the [[MiddleEasternCoalition Cairo Pact]][[note]]The Sultanate of Egypt, Rashidi/Saudi Arabia, Iran, Tripolitania, Abyssinia, and Somalia[[/note]] will appear so as to finally break the Ottoman Empire, and the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Belgrade Pact]][[note]]The Kingdom of Serbia, Iron Guard Romania, and Greece[[/note]] can also manifest in the Balkans to take back territories lost in the First Weltkrieg. And none of these factions start with anything less than utter contempt each other, which can lead to a three(or more)-way Second Weltkrieg.
