Kaiserreich by QuantumBranching Kaiserreich by QuantumBranching
Okay, a take on the popular Kaiserreich game setting. I have made a few modifications here and there - I'm assuming that Britain goes Fascist Lite after the war, which radicalizes the Left, but full blown revolution doesn't break out until the economy tanks in the late 20s, after the government rather overreacts to understandable discontent and protest. (French communist takeover unlikely, French and British takeover very unlikely, so I need to give the British more incentive) So I've pushed the date up to 1939, to give the British Revolution some more time to settle in. 

The US revolution - well, I've assumed a butteflying of Roosevelt's career so he doesn't make it as a candidate in '32, so things can get properly grim by '36. I then assume a political understanding between Roosevelt
's democrats and John Reed's Marxist/Syndicalist/Socialist union, because he's not an idiot and realizes that in a showdown with the far-right Unionists, the rump Republicans, and the Democrats, his gang will be trampled underfoot. Of course, the Unionists and Republicans (and some conservative Democrats) are not happy at all, and after a narrower win than OTL '32, there is an attempt to prevent the new President from being officially inaugurated, and things go downhill from there...

I am also assuming that the US and Japan won't stand still and let Germany grab _all_ the goodies when England falls to revolution, and that Russia hasn't fallen into revolution yet (it complicates things, and anyway I have sympathy for the poor abused Russians). And there are a few other changes here and there which the well-informed reader will spot. 

In any event, it is 1939, war was coming, and a new wave of Left-wing revolution threatens...

Why return to being the state of Montana when they could become the new Dominion of Montana?

I feel like my dealer has just let me sample a new strain for free and it's like someone beating the shit out of my brain, but in a good way.

Also in the KR canon Roosevelt was assassinated in '35 after losing the 1932 election, his sympathy with the CSA alienated a bunch of Southern Democrats.  Though your idea that he would make alliances with the Syndicalists is pretty spot on.  I assume he's won the Civil War judging from the rather large red held south.
