World history is deeply altered by the absence of a feudalist medieval period in Europe.

A Better Tsar (by User:Reesesistastylol2439)
As he enters his 20s, Grand Duke Nicholas is trained by his father, Alexander III, to be tsar when his advisors convince him that it is the best idea, and spends his final years tutoring and educating his son. Eventually Alexander passes away and Grand Duke Nicholas is made Tsar in 1894, becoming Tsar Nicholas II. Nicholas proves to be a liberal autocrat who grants freedom and equality to all, while still retaining great power for himself. He reforms Russia into a modernized and prosperous state and leads it to victory in 1904-05 and the World Wars. Thanks to the tsar's actions, Russia was one of the two great superpowers of the world alongside the United States, and no Cold War breaks out due to the two nations' enduring alliance. However, when Nicholas' grandson Mikhail II takes the throne, Russia spirals into a large mess, with Russia transforming into a federation with Mikhail as president, but Mikhail releases all nations under Russian rule and destroys the economy, as well as serving as an effective dictator. While he is ousted and brutally executed in 1995, the damage has been done, and Russia is currently recovering from the effects of the disastrous Mikhail. Recently, it has seen a few nations rejoin the motherland and the economy's recovery. Today, Russia is effectively equal to OTL, minus the corruption, dictatorship, and country incidents, as well as a slightly better economy than OTL.

The year is 2009 and America is falling apart, the economy failing, much of the military is engaged in UN and NATO peacekeeping operations, and the nation isn't exactly moving towards energy independence. Then the final blow is struck, on February 8th 2009, Missouri senator Kit Bond is killed in an automobile accident while on his way to his office in the morning. The governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon, a Democrat, appoints a democratic to the senate to replace Bond, giving the Democrats a filibuster-proof majority. One week later, on February 13th, former Secretary of The Treasury Alan Greenspan requests permission to meet President Obama. During their meeting, Greenspan suggests that the only way that the government will be able to get the nation out of the recession is to nationalize the banks, unlike in OTL, where Greenspan's suggestion was ignored, President Obama takes his advice and proposes a bill to congess regarding the nationalization of all banks in America. Opposition and support are met by both parties, but in the end the vote passes by a vote of 60-39, with the Minnesota senate seat still disputed between Franken and Coleman. The next day stocks tumble to the lowest ever recorded, and the economy is almost effectively shut down, history repeats itself, and Americans turn to revolutionary leaders that they would normally dismiss as radicals, losing all faith in the federal government, the majority of citizens support rebellious secessionist movements and the United States is effectively dissolved.
