One possibility 

I asked Turtledove what the world might have looked like in 2014 if Britain had won the Revolutionary War, or if the war had never been fought in the first place. He noted that "alternate history is often better at asking questions than answering them." Still, he indulged me.

"If the British Empire included all of North America north of the Rio Grande as well as India, it would be incontestably the strongest state in the world," he responded. "The French Revolution wouldn't have happened, both for lack of example and because it began when a political crisis and a famine coincided with a government bankruptcy that sprang from the money the government paid out helping the American colonists gain their independence—and giving perfidious Albion a shot in the eye."

"This is, essentially, the world of The Two Georges," he continued. "Because the Empire was so strong, we might well have missed out on not only the Napoleonic Wars but also the World Wars. On the other hand, we would also have missed out on the kick in the pants wars give to technology and medicine. We might have had as many deaths that could have been prevented in our own world by medical advances as we've lost in our big wars." Would Marxism and nationalism have become such formidable forces? He's not sure.

"Alternate history isn't really about the world you're creating," he added. "It's about the world in which you live, and gives you and your readers a funhouse mirror in which to see the real world." It's a reflection, he says, that we can't get any other way.

Happy birthday America. But are you sure you didn't make a mistake in leaving the British fold?

Putin's grandfather worked as a personal Chef for Stalin.

Some countries have lousy leaders, but this one is total embarrassment, along with the lousies.

The trouble is Trump is so dim-witted he and his inbred family don't see how shameful they have made America 

Comment by Mrs.B on July 2, 2019 at 6:41pm

It is shameful. And I feel bad that the decent ones have to live there.

Back at the beginning of the administration, in fact, when Trump announced in August of 2017 that Ivanka would be leading the US delegation at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit near the end of that year, an unnamed diplomat from India spoke on the record to the Hindustan Times, telling editor-in-chief Bobby Ghosh just exactly the way India’s government views the First Daughter:

We regard Ivanka Trump the way we do half-wit Saudi princes. It’s in our national interest to flatter them. Yes, it is a shame that the US should be compared to a kingdom. But that is America’s shame, not [Indian Prime Minister Narendra] Modi’s, or India’s.”
