For Want of A Sandwich - A Franz Ferdinand Lives Wikibox TL

The World in 2020
  • Hello all,

    The endeavour for this TL started back in 2013, when after the abandonment of my Ross Perot TL, I searched for the ideas of my fellow members of Alternatehistory.com in redacting a new timeline - Having Archduke Franz Ferdinand survive his fateful trip to Sarajevo on June, 28 1914 seemed perfect, as this event had numerous consequences for the whole century. The TL had a few missteps, yet I pursued the redaction of a complete timeline, country by country, year by year, from 1914 to 2020 : in the end, it seemed that it would be impossible to make a linear TL as I had first imagined, and the great TL Our Fair Country and the success of the edited Wikibox persuaded me to launch a new format, as a history atlas illustrated by Wikibox, showing the whole perspective of the world from 1914 to 2020 and leaving the reader to find the marks of the world. Without further ado, let's begin for once this completed TL, in collaboration with you !

    I must acknowledge the many readers of A Giant Sucking Sound ; one could find a few similitaries with the Kaiserreich TL, on which I once participated in my younger years for Mexico and France.

    World Democracy Index
  • DemocracyIndex.png

    Classification definition :

    Full democracy (level 9, darker green) -
    Political debates and citizens' representations are guaranteed by the insitutitions, as well as the separation of powers, freedom of speech, information. Gender and race equalities are enforced. For example, United States.
    Full democracy (level 8, dark green) - Same as above, but limited issues arise, such as bureaucracy, reunion limited corruption and some restrictions on equality and media representation. For example, China.
    Flawed democracy (level 7, green) - Overall good democracies but corruption is more stressed, as well as some media freedom infringement and minor suppression of political critics. Underdeveloped political culture, low levels of participation in politics, civic representation and other issues can be issues. For example, Germany.
    Flawed democracy (level 6, light green) - Same as above, but more widespread : corruption is endemic, electoral fraud is widespread, political violence and suppression of the media and some political parties are suppressed. For example, United Kingdom.
    Hybrid regime (level 5, yellow) - Electoral fraud, political violence, corruption are widespread ; even if the institutions guarantee check and balances, they also tend to discriminate and limit freedom of speech, media or enforce discrimination against certain populations. For example, Italy.
    Hybrid regime (level 4, orange) - Democracy is nothing but in name. The institutions are officially democracies and guarantee some political debate, but rule of law and pressure against the opposition avoid any true democratic spirit. For example, Mexico.
    Authoritarian regime (level 3, dark orange) - "Light" dictatorship, the basic rule of law and prior institutions are maintained, but political repression, suppression of opposition and media are enforced. For example, France.
    Authoritarian regime (level 2, crimson red) - Dictatorship. All individual freedoms are repressed, as well as all opposition, but return to democracy is an option. For example, Angola.
    Authoritarian regime (level 1, red) - Regime that tend to be considered "totalitarian". For example, Bharatavarsha.

    PS : of course, the Canadian Arctic Islands aren't a dictatorship, it's a bug when converting the file :)

    Rome 2020 Summer Olympics
  • Rome2020.jpg

    The 2020 Summer Olympics, officially the Games of the XXXII Olympiades (Italian : Giochi della XXXII Olimpiade) and branded as Rome 2020, was an international multi-sport event held from 31 July to 16 August 2020, in Rome, Italy. It was followed by the 2020 Summer Paralympics from 31 August to 13 September 2020.

    The fourth Olympics held in Italy (after the 1956 Summer Olympics in Rome and the 1956 and 1986 Winter Olympics in Cortina d’Ampezzo), marking the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Rome as the capital of united Italy, Rome was chosen as host city by the IOC in 2013. Rome’s bid stressed its use of ecological energy and optimization of existing facilities, with main events taking place in the already existing and rebuilt Stadio Olimpico along with the Foro Italico sports complex, the Fiera di Roma and the Stadio Flaminio, also using historical landmarks, such as the Piazza di Siena for horse jumping, the Roman Forum for archery and marathon, the Caracalla baths, the Circus Maximus for beach volleyball. Sailing and surfing events were held in Cagliari, Sardinia. The Olympic Village and Media Center, built near downtown in the Tor di Quinto quarter near the Tiber river, is to become a park of 40 hectares after the Games.

    Harshly criticized in Italy as a propaganda move and a vanity project for both the Italian government and the Pyrist Mayor of Rome, Gianni Alemanno, arguing that Olympic funds were only funding a much needed and postponed urban renewal of the capital and such a move was irresponsible given the outrageous financial surcharge and the city debt, the Olympics’ future were thrown into jeopardy in early 2020 owing to the outbreak of the 2020 Wuchang Pneumonia, as Europe had been relatively spared from the disease. Following Hungary’s move about the 2020 European Football Championship, President of Council Lorenzo Fontana and Mayor Alemanno decided against postponing the games to 2021, against the advice of the Ministry of Health, the IOC, the World Council and most of the opposition, citing the expensive cost of a report, the commercial benefits of touristic affluence in Rome and downplaying the coronavirus threat. On 31 July 2020, on the promised date, King Emanuele Filiberto II officially opened the Olympic Games and the Olympic Flame was lighted in the Stadio Olimpico by legendary swimmer and 2008 200 m freestyle Olympic Champion Federica Pelligrini.

    With 153 nations invited but less athletes than in 2016, the Rome Olympic Games were widely seen, in a sports perspective, as a tremendous event, with China winning the most medals, followed by the United States and Great Britain, Italy itself managing to be sixth on the medal table.

    Healthwise, the Rome Olympics were seen as a disaster, as health prevention was kept at a bare minimum, freely allowing public attendance and the IOC leaving participating nations to deal privately with the issue (for instance, both Chinese and American teams enforced a full quarantine for their returning athletes) : the inflow of people, journalists and athletes from throughout the world in an already crowded city during Summer is now seen by scientists as one of the main catalysts for the exceptional outbreak of the Wuchang Pneumonia that infected Europe during the summer. As President of Council Fontana has only recently recognized his own poor decision but has praised the positive impact it had on the economy, Mayor Alemanno had already decided not to seek reelection for the 2021 municipal elections...
