This timeline focuses on a different progression of technological development from our own. The point at which this history obviously diverges from our present timeline is the Information Revolution of 1979, which happens in this timeline and fails in our own. Nations, events, maps and people are identical to our own until the year 2000 unless otherwise specified.
The point of departure is still to be identified. The point of departure could happen as late as the early 1970's or as early as the 1870's most likely in the 1950's or 1960's.
