A World of Ice and Catholics, what happens when the wheel of fortune and destiny shines brightly on another group of people. These group of people in one time being either second rate, or completely irrelevant in another time. Today we are in a world completely different from our very own. The ones who rule this world may be similar to the ones we know in our time, but in this world they are kings. In Europe in the heart of the country rules the mighty nation of Poland-Lithuania. For the past 400 years have been a dominant force on Earth, but they have had their ups and downs, but for longer they have been riding the highs as the "Emperor" of Europe. Across the high waves of the Atlantic in the cold northern and wetter region of North America is the young and powerful nation of Canada. Born of the flames of revolution and their ideals of "taming the wilds and manifest destiny" These two nations have risen to the top and the world and now the focal points and most influential countries to grace the green Earth. How have they got there? Who else exists in this world? I dunno.
