Capital: New Washington? The world doesn't revolve around the United States of America, if anything the capital of the United Earth would be some sort of neutral countrys city like Geneva or Zurich.

(repost from down below) ^^

Well, that sounds really interesting. But somehow it also lacks a bit of logic. Let's estimate that the Race arives in 2010, and attacks with 'High Altitude Bombing', frying a gread deal of electronics around the world - there would still be the nuclear submarines of the five permanent member of the UN left, they wouldn't suffer a failure from the EMP. And since the Race's fleet would have to be in a Low-Earth-Orbit, to ship weapons and sodliers to Earth, they are all in range of the SLBMs, Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile, so from what I think their fleet would just be wiped out of the skies. I guess there are also a lot of hardened launching sites for nuclear missiles all around the world, so when they would attack with EMP, a few minutes later humans would retaliate. Just my own ideas going wild. ^^

The submarines (of the US at least, I'd be surprised if the other powers hadn't adopted similar policies) physically cannot detonate without codes from the Commander-in-Chief.

Hey buddy. I found that. When Moscow is destroyed or the contact is broken, the Russian nuclear submarines are able to launch their missiles. And also the British subs are able to do that.

:iconynot1989:
YNot1989 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, but that's not the reason. The world is largely at peace, with the exception of certain guerilla factions in the Congo, Central Asia, and South America.

The reason for the single branch is to show that while Humanity will always seek peace, after the war they will be ready for hostilities.

Its an alternate of an alternate. In this timeline Atvar had suffered a massive cerebral hemorrhage before going into cold sleep; and the invasion was pushed back close to 90 years so they could choose an appropriate successor (Kirel). So they arrive in present day.

Though wouldn't that make the war somewhat harder for humanity, especially since EMP could fry most electronic equipment (unlike in the '40s).

Also, it looks like America still won the war and united mankind.

YNot1989 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Very good. Yes, the EMP makes the initial invasion a huge success for the race. With no intel, no communications, most weapons systems fried, and general panic as a result the Race is able to quickly conquer most of the southern hemisphere and much of the rest of the planet in short order. By 2013, however, human resistance movements had finally gotten organized and started to make life difficult for the race. The most successful movements were usually in the Northern Hemisphere where they couldn't handle the cold as well, but in a few cases such as the Middle East and Central Asia; the south fought pretty hard too. The most successful resistance was a group called the Knights of Sedona in Northern Arizona. They were initially just a collection of local militia forces, but a number of US military types joined up and got them organized into a serious force.

Through the use of warfare tactics learned during the last century, Humans did some serious damage to the Race war machine (car bombs, IEDs, homemade Thermite and Napalm, pipebombs, etc). Eventually it got so bad that the Race nuked the major nuclear powers capitols to both discourage further resistance, and prevent humanity from coordinating a worldwide resistance (divide and conquer). Still the resistances continued to make actually conquering the planet look ever more impossible, and Straha was able to gain a MUCH larger coalition of support to simply sterilize the planet. British and Russian intelligence services intercepted these plans, and estimated that humanity had maybe six months before the Race came to the inevitable decision to exterminate humanity. They sent the information to whoever they could, and the Brits sent a few of their guys across the pond to warn the Americas. One of them met up with the Knights of Sedona and stayed to help coordinate a desperation attack. The Knights had the largest cyberwarfare operation of any single resistance group, and launched an assault on a Race Starship. Using a network of cyberattacks to cut off communications with the Starship, they managed to convince the Race, that the vehicle was rendered inoperable. The Knights spent the next several months monitoring Race radio chatter and preparing the Ship for the counter attack. Two other similar missions were coordinated in Britain and Russia and by 2017 the ships (now outfitted with Ship-to-Ship weapon systems) all launched while a massive cyber attack was coordinated against the Race, blinding them to the assault. The ships took out those vessels carrying nuclear weapons and forced a surrender from the fleetlord.

The man who coordinated the attack was an American, but it was by no means a one nation effort.

You've definitely put considerable effort into planning the backstory out, that's for sure. Though it also looks as though Japan (or at least Tokyo) got off fairly lightly.

Non-nuclear power, and pitifully armed. They'd pretty much surrendered after the invasion and just waited to be liberated.

This is too yankcentric(Yeah, you would expect me to use americancentric), Why the new capital cannot be in let say Cape city or somewhere else?.
I don't know but this is like a US projected version of Earth, like if the US survivors still think they are the best of the best and meanest around and tought "our country was the best, so let's base this United Earth on our nation former capital and force it to the rest of the world throats".
Ok, you can write the line as you like but not all people will be happy with it.

Washington DC carries with it more authority than any single city on Earth. Plus, the National Mall was completely destroyed in the Nuclear attack, leaving a blank slate for a new City. Moscow, London, Paris, Beijing, and Tel Aviv, New Delhi, and Islamabad have too much history behind them, and are not built from the ground up to be Capitols. New Washington, like its predecessor, was designed and built Purely as an administrative city, free from local politics.

There is no "United States," by this point btw. One of the agreements the larger countries made when the United Earth was established was that they would break themselves up to keep a Representative disparity from being too wide in the World House of Commons.

The truth is though, most new Constitutions borrow HEAVILY from the US constitution (at least in principle), because we are the world's oldest surviving federation, with the oldest written constitution still in use. We're also (historically) the most politically stable country on Earth; we haven't had any violent insurrections since the Civil War; and protests rarely get out of hand and turn violent (the last being the Battle in Seattle, which lasted only about a Day). The World Constitution (still working on it ;) ) borrows a lot from that of the US, but the bill of rights, is based more on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

And, your English is fine by the way.

Just to be picky, but the oldest Constitution still in use is generally considered to be that of San Marino, written in 1600, and Switzerland hasn't had any violent insurrections since the Sonderbundkrieg in 1847. Were you referring to new constitutions in your timeline or OTL?

I like the one branch style, but I feel like it could use something to off set it on the other side. It's awfully blank over there, maybe some stars or something would brighten it up. Or maybe, since the flag already has a planet on it, just one star in particular...

Not trying to put this work down or anything, it just looks like it's been placed on top of a photo and they don't blend too well.
