Okay, that's interesting-- the Dutch seem to have been aiming for a neutrality founded on suspicion of all the big powers. But with Meitner so well known to the Queen, they will absolutely notice his absence. I wonder if the ORRA boys left behind any false-flag evidence of Europan involvement...
 
I’m sure you could incorporate him somehow. I mean, your right he’s probably been butterflied, but didn’t you say at least some inferiors survive cleansing month? His parents could have survived cleansing month as some of the few inferiors that didn’t get the poisoned vaccine, and then gone on to have him still. It’d make him a slave almost certainly, but didn’t you have one person earlier on in the story have an inferior slave as a butler as well? I mean it was before the union went fully batshit crazy and started committing genocide, but if anyone could pull of something similar president Oswald would be that person.
The problem is that Ronald Reagan's parents would be on opposite ends of the social spectrum ITTL-Jack Reagan was a third-generation Irish-American Catholic, while Nelle was a half-English, half-Scottish Protestant. Unless Jack manages to pull an Oswald and cover up his Inferior origins, the likelihood of him and Nelle still meeting and starting a family are pretty much zero.

I always thought Reagan was Dutch

That's cause his nickname was Dutch because he apparently looked like the "fat little Dutchman" on the Dutch Boy paint cans according to his father. Though that does bring up an interesting idea: should Reagan ever appear in story, he can always claim to be of Dutch heritage to hide his irish roots (I know Napo already said Ronnie appearing was unlikely, but we can still dream)

Jack Reagan could be Nelle's Infee servant who due to reasons, ends up fathering her child. To hide his true heritage, she names the boy Brass Bancroft and claims he is Dutch
 
I think Nap's more than capable of coming up with weird personality quirks himself, but if we're throwing out ideas... I look forward to the future First Citizen of the Voluntary Association of China "restoring good humor" to his traumatized nation by putting whoopee cushions under the people he's planning to have executed, or having his totally-not-a-puppet prime minister be selected by periodic nationwide mahjongg tournaments.

I, for one, welcome the Chinese Elagabalus.

You know, if you can't be scary through raw strength you can always be scary through unpredictability.

"And after counting up the squares... Minister Zhang controls the most territory on the board, so it looks like he wins the portfolio of Specialist in Foreign Affairs! He is expected to recommend loans from the Macarthurs' lenders, which will no doubt incense the Batavian financiers who backed Minister Qi; but well, they knew what they were signing up for when they agreed to play politics by our rules! The First Citizen's opinions on the matter remain unknown, but I'm sure any disputes will be handled through Peaceable And Direct Communication (TM), the foundation of our Egoist Union!"
 
I like WMiT and I like Stellaris so I combined the two.
