The World Of Code Geass by RoyalPsycho The World Of Code Geass by RoyalPsycho
The World Of Code Geass:
Now the whole 55 BC, High King Eowyn thing never happened and it is simply revisionist history by the Britannian government who like all fascist nations mythologise their history to their people. However the POD for this world was during the Elizabethan Age where Elizabeth I did take a lover and give birth to an illegitimate child. The desire to keep a Protestant king on the throne was what lead to Henry IX crowning after his mother's death. With a solidly Protestant dynasty on the English throne England managed to avoid the English civil War and kept the power of the monarch closer to absolute than OTL. The colonisation of the Americas also saw a greater proportion of landed gentry arriving at the behest of the Royal family who were able to gain large, prosperous estates and plantations in the New World.

Eventually an age of revolution began by the Enlightenment led to a Napoleon analogue emerging in France. The British were defeated and forced to flee to their colonies where a few years prior a republican revolution had broken out and was brutally put down. The influx of absolutists, aristocrats conservatives and loyalists ended any possibility of another rebellion taking place. However the British colonists rallied and attacked the weak and overstretched European colonies in a rapid and paranoid conquest of the Americas. The Britannian identity was born from the mythologising of British culture in response to the sheer number of Amerindian, European and Hispanic subjects.

History continued.

The Holy Britannian Empire is the supreme world power with an empire that controls over a third of the worlds surface. Britannia is a traditionalist, Social-Darwinist, hierarchical nation with a strict class system. Society in Britannia is conservative though women are given equal opportunities for employment and achievement as long as they are capable of doing it on their own strength. Britannia is an absolutist government with the Emperor as the head of state and government with the Senate handling the administration delegated to them by the Emperor and the aristocracy governing the provinces on behalf of the Emperor. Britannia is a capitalist society that is supported by the ideals of the empire and has allowed it to become very prosperous despite the authoritarian state of the empire. Britannian society is a class system with the aristocracy and corporate families at the top. Society for the Britannian citizens is decided by income but prosperity is guaranteed for any citizen through the labour of the Numbers. Numbers are the lowest rung of the social ladder with a few exceptions of puppet leaders that were given privilege after the conquests of their nations.

Life for numbers in the Britannian Areas is horrendous. Numbers are actively discriminated against by Britannian citizens and are often exploited as cheap physical labour. Numbers are consigned to ghettos where squalor is common and is just as likely to result in death as accidents at work. In the older areas the ghettos are government built and under more progressive Viceroys looking for a continued work force would often have basic communal services. Numbers do have the option of honorary citizenship which allows greater status in society as technical first class citizens. However strict requirements are necessary and the Honorary Britannian will still be subjected to discrimination by pure blood citizens. The easiest way to gain citizenship is to join the army where benefits are guaranteed along with a higher salary. Honorary Britannians will often be used by the army as cannon fodder.

The current Emperor Charles Zi Britannia is a devout believer of the ideals of the Empire. Since his rule began the exploitation of the Areas has grown worse and often corrupt nobles have found that their power has become an even stronger shield when engaging in illegal activities whilst citizens and Numbers all suffer for it. The Emperor is a self acknowledged polygamist that has over a hundred wives and consorts but only a few of his most powerful wives have given him children. Charles considers all his children legitimate in their claims to the throne and uses the right of succession as a tool to decide his successor by pitting his children against one another.

The European Universe is Britannia's main rival. The EU was developed from the empire of Louis Vanqoeur after his assassination at Waterloo. His son inherited his vast and complex empire and was unable to exert the control his father had. The Empire held together but decentralised as puppet states began to express their own identities and rights. The EU is now a federal democratic society that upholds the ideals of self-determination, human rights and democracy. Monarchy is still present in many nations across Europe and the rest of the Union but by now numerous republics exist. Despite their ideals the EU is definitely Eurocentric with much of Africa still economic dependencies that receive minor assistance in their development. The EU is a far more liberal society than their rivals but by OTL standards is conservative and militant. The EU is cosmopolitan with new social fads appearing from across the EU along with a surprising tolerance of culture language and religion. Despite the prevalence of French as the lingua franca of EU government and France still being the figurehead of the EU there has been a shift in power. Germany is the centre of science and research in the EU, Russia is the most economically productive and Britain exports the most cultural influence these days.

The EU decolonised after the Great War/1st Pacific War. Despite loosing their Asian and Pacific colonies to the Britannians and Chinese the EU was able to retain nominal control over their African colonies. All of Africa is still under Europe's thumb in some way or another. Several African states that received sufficient development and colonisation before decolonisation have managed to become fairly prosperous and influential enough to qualify for status in the Hemicycle. The EU is a heavily fortified nation with an enormous complex system of defensive structures designed in the event of invasion by the Britannians or the Chinese. The EU state security does have a lot of power despite the EU's ideals and conscription is universal in every EU state.

Butterflies lead to different leaders in China that managed to modernise the nation before the 19th Century. There was no century of humiliation for the Chinese and they even managed to hold off powers like Russia and Japan. China's enormous population made it incredibly powerful once industrialisation became large scale in China. During the mid 19th Century China suffered a civil war during he period of industrialisation and the old Qing Dynasty was overthrown by the previously obscure but progressive Jiang family who established their own dynasty. The Chinese Federation is a strange nation with an absolute monarchy, a federated political system and a socialist economy. Much of society excepting the socialist ideals is still very traditionalist.

A major partner in the Chinese Federation is the enormous and economically strong Indian Raj. India was liberated from French rule during the 1st Pacific War and remained united due to Chinese guns before a new arrangement could be worked out. Other members of the federation have been liberated by the Chinese from European control after the Great War/1st Pacific War. All the members of the federation accept the Empress of China as their monarch. The current Empress Jiang Lihua was placed on the throne at age six and has been dominated by her corrupt subordinates the High Eunuchs that have stolen the wealth of the nation in order to live in luxury. Due to this corruption much of the Federation is in the grip of almost crippling poverty.

The Republic of Australia was founded by British colonists and was strengthened by Europeans fleeing Vanqouer Europe or Britannian America. Australia is an officially neutralised nation but does house several Britannian military bases on lease to their government. Australia is genuinely democratic and is often the destination for any seeking political asylum.

Japan modernised like OTL but failed to establish themselves as a colonial empire due to a stronger China. Japan joined in the 1st Pacific War but was defeated. The government reformed into a constitutional monarchy. Japan has always been the owner of the worlds largest deposit of the super-conducting mineral Sakuradite. Since their failure at military conquest the Japanese have begun exploiting the poorer nation states of the Chinese Federation and EU as much as they can and have begun to set themselves up as a fourth superpower on economics alone.

The year is now 2009 and the biggest news is the recent assassination of Marianne Vi Britannia a former Knight of the Round and the favourite consort of Emperor Charles. This was subsequently followed with the political exile of her young son Lelouch Vi Britannia and traumatised and crippled daughter Nunnally Vi Britannia who have been sent to Japan as political pawns for the Emperors plans for military expansion as tension rises between the three powers and the increasingly arrogant Japanese.

Now that's a good map of code geass universe! Though, I admit that I never truly understand why  the sakuridite exist in this world, but instead the uranium doesn't exist or at least doesn't exist in enough quantity for a nuclear reaction. However, if I recall correctly, in the series,............. Japan shouldn't have turned into a Republic after the first pacific war (Thus there are still element of the old aristocratic administration in the government, after all, if you recall there is no mention of an empire of Japan or of a "Tennou")?

Actually uranium does exist in the Code Geass universe because Nina mentions that it is still an integral element in nuclear fission. Sakuradite just seems to be your standard unobtanium fuel source and a justification for Japan being so significant in the story.

About Japan. I took a few liberties with the pre-conquest government because of how little detail their was. That fact that the old aristocracy still existed and was so powerful seemed like evidence of the nation still being a traditionalist monarchical state but you do raise a valid point there.

Well, thanks, but I admit I don't have many elements to prove my theory, one would be that in a OVA of the series, when Nunnaly(Leoluch's sister) ask to Leoluch if exist an Emperor in Japan, Leoluch reply: <<No, Japan is a democracy, there is no king>>, thus I admit the Suzaku father is always mentions are the Prime Minister of Japan and never as President, though this may be do to the fact that Japan, after the First Pacific war, turn in a parlament republic and no in a presidential republic, so that’s would means that even if exist a president the true “ruler” of the country would be the Prime Minister.
However, I’m quite sure that in the episode where Nina explain the existence of the uranium, she seem disappointed since she said that only the 0,97% of all uranium of earth is of U-236, the one necessary for nuclear reaction, so it’s logical to presume that thus it exist uranium and the scientists are aware of its existence, and its “potential”, there is simply not enough for a nuclear reaction, also I disagreed with you about the sakuradite being a fuel-like thing, it surely true that the sakuradite is necessary for the mass production of energy but  since, it is extract from the Fuij, it’s meant is more like a mineral(I think it also appear like this in one of the spin-off manga series), beside I’m quite sure that all the core of the Knightmare, the mechanique combat armor used in the series,  are made of sakuradite.

The new OVA with japanese exiles in France? They said all their nobiities were killed or expelled? I take it the Brittanian nobility intermarried with the expelled Spanish/Portugese/Russian/etc nobility then? (they did manage to keep Royalist France as a 'side' fighting Napoleon in the treaty after Napoleonic Wars in OTL)

Oh. Damn. I remember though in the original Code Geass how Emperor Charles blatantly said how his Empire was different than the E.U. with 'such a strong focus on democracy and equality'. Then again, this is the Emire which invades weak countries and engages in nasty cultural suppression...

I also think the European pro-absolutists went to Britannia where they were integrated into the nobility and upper classes. It would go a long way to explaining the diversity of names amongst the Britannian characters and why the Britannian Empire is a reactionary, hierarchical, expanionist and abolutist superstate.

PROBLEMS: According to the maps in Code Geass, the entire American Continent(s) are part of the 'homeland' of the Empire, they are -not- areas. (when Lelouch became emperor, he abandoned all the 'areas' but not the integral regions of the Empire. 

So I question how badly Quebecois would be treated in the Brittanian Empire especially given they are 'white'. Though I suspect the racism of brittania is more of ethnic superiority I guess, because they lost a war and were conquered, well fuck you lolol.

I also suspect that Napoleonic Victory! Will result in nationalism beoming a strong factor, so you still get unified germany! and all sorts of ethnic cleansing in the balkans and former Ottoman Empire. I can still see Yugoslavia though.

Oh, and France is Wanked too badly. I can see it fracturing from internal ethnic divides feom Catalonians becoming incensed at Parisian dominance, etc. And the fuking NETHERLANDS are part of France? Holy shit how hasn't this fallen apart despite hundreds of years of nationalism?

I don't see Wanked France! blocking the unification of Germany, let alone Russia. France would have to transfer power to Russia....lest a pan EU war break out (perhaps that is what CC saw in her 'past') of resurgent Russia wanting more power and influence. I can see French used as a government/'priviledged' language or for diplomacy as it was before WWI, but lol no to this shit nigga.

Oh. No Armenia/Georgia....but there is a Finland. I can SOMEWHAT understand Azerbaijan not being there, as Azerbaijan had a weak national identity in OTL, but uh no.

According to the wiki the Americas are actually areas. The approximate area of the OTL USA is technically Area 1 but also considered the homeland. Also Lelouch abolished the Area system but they never said he abandoned the American territories. Realistically these regions would be both colonial Areas and integral regions of the Empire.

The Quebecois are French who are England's worst historical enemy and responsible for kicking the British out of the British Isles. I think there's a lot of reasons for the racial supremacist Britannians to dislike them.

Two hundred years of Napoleonic rule over territories he made a part of France in OTL is enough to stabilise rule over a state that is federal as well. Also this appears to be a world where pan-nationalist ideals have grown up to replace nation-state nationalism so Yugoslavia is also likely to come into being.

In my own head-canon that flashback was an EU civil war that the French did win. Russia is also still rather backward by the standards of this world, economically productive but backward, also France's leadership is largely one of prestige. As it says in the write-up France is a figurehead that has been outdone by several other nations in economic, technological and even cultural dominance.

Why can't Russia still have control of Armenia and Georgia in a world where mega-empires have come into being and survived against all the odds?

Keeping the American territories does make sense. In the Eng Dub I think Kaguya mentions that Emperor Lelouch did not 'allow his regions to secede' or something. Which indicates perhaps there was some secessionist movements in the rest of the continent(s). 

Though of what matter is unstated [royalists? ethnic nationalists? I always had the impression that the Brittanian Empire was heavily hispanized/mestizoized in culture, and only the royalty really cared to 'pretend' to be Brittanian, and even then it's a bit of a hole as you see Nunnally (Irish name) and whatnot. I guess in this timeline 'british culture' became 'aristocratic' culture in public/social purposes' to some extent]

Quebecois problems, yeah I can see that. If the comparative lightness of Quebecois treatment (compared to native blacks in the US for example) resulted in ultramontaism (sp?) and then terrorism in the 1960s/ethnic unrest, I can see the insurgency in Quebec being downright nasty. Something like the 'Caste War' in Yucatan maybe?

Re. Napoleonic Rule and nationstates, I always had the idea that nationalism was pretty much what Napoleon or his analog in ATL used to become powerful and whatnot. Taking advantages of trends of increasing literacy and ability of people to move about. 

He tapped into the incipient ideas of ethnic groups having identities as 'nations' and their right to self-determination. That genie will be hard to put back into the bottle metaphorically, with alternate revolution of 1848 or whatnot in a Napoleonic victory. Also note the Dutch rebelled against Spain already in OTL so there was some identity already.

Arguably nationalism was inevitable with mass literacy and communication with people from different areas, and naturally you'd feel 'better' with people who can speak your language of believe the same things. I know that there will probably be regions where nationalism might not take off at all, or to a lesser extent (Eastern Europe) as there are so many places of overlapping ethnicities which change their identity over times.

Of course, I remember some people saying you could probably find a way to get rid of empires and imperialism and not have nationalism develop as a 'counter'. bu tI dunno how.

Armenia/Georgia AFAIK petiitioned for admission (when they were Kingdoms/Principalities) as the Ottomans were a threat to them. But you know what, yeah why not. Dynastic union with Czarist Russia, and they all democratize into 'Free States' or whatnot in the same way Bavaria as a part of the German Empire 'democratized' into a free state/member of Weimar Republic.

I think the secessionists against Lelouch were either pro-Charles elements, ethnic nationalists or simple anti-Britannian groups which is a mixed bag in and of itself. They never clarify though.

I imagine that the Quebecoise are very closely monitored for any signs of overt Frenchness. By this point I think that their resistance ha sbeen beaten out of them by the Britannian occupation. I mean in the extra materials, Cornelia and Schneizel even have a debate over the idea of leaving the Numbers any hope of freedom and something to strive for or simply crushing their spirits altogether and thus lowering their productivity as a result.

The federalisation of France in this TL allowed Napoleon's Greater France to survive whilst satisfying the nationalists by granting them regional autonomy over their own regions and representation in Paris. It's not perfect but it has assuaged most of the nationalists barring the extremists.

Nationalism works in this world but like I said the world of Code Geass appears to be one of massive pan-national identities developing over ethnic or linguistic nationality. Think of it like the fact that all of the states that make up the USA have a local identity but at the same time think of themselves as Americans, part of a larger somewhat decentralised superstate that encompasses all of them whilst maintaining their local identity.

An example in series would be the Chinese Federation. Empress/Tianzi Jiang Lihua appears to be respected and loved almost universally throughout the Chinese Federation, despite it being made up of so many different cultures, and has served as an effective symbol of unity and integrity even during the High Eunuchs corrupt and oppressive regime. Even when the Chinese Federation was disbanded I believe the series hinted she still was the head of state of all of the former constituent nations. Maybe they work like the Commonwealth of Nations in OTL now?

Armenia/Georgia was probably ignorance on my part when I made this map. They were part of the EU so I just put them as part of Russia. I mean its far from the most ASB thing in the series or this map though I think the history displayed in this map is a lot more realistic than the actual simple one portrayed in the canon wiki.

Makes sense. I wonder how popular they are. I mean, people always say 'empires have to be empires as otherwise they will collapse if the people get democracy' but on the other hand empires can be i guess democratically supported to some extent, if people benefit from it. And this world has a retarded growth of nationalism in Europe at least.

Maybe the actions of Brittania are causing a growth of ethnic nationalism in other regions (i.e. Japanese anti-Brittanian sentiment which I dont know how that will go away. I can see ethnic cleansing in any scenario, even if Lelouch is being a giant dick [im commending on the alexander of the revenge map too].) So it takes a lot later for ethnic identities to develop, even with high tech. That...is an interesting/cool world.

EDIT: Wait, arent the maps in the series showing the 'modern' Eurasian/African countries? As in Germany with OTL post 1945 borders? LOL

I have heard this said before: states which unify before they democratize are arguably more stable re. identities. compare states which democratize (to some extent at leeast) before unification (US and EU) and you get 'conspiracy theories' more prevalent; and stronger secessionists as ppl are used to their will being followed through. The UK treaty of Union in 1707 was amazingly unpopular in Scotland among the common people, for example. A more 'democratic' state would have a revolution or guerilla warfare if politicians were to act that way with unifying similar states in the current day, say OTL North American Union amped up to 11 and without ANY input from the citizens.

I can see Georgia and Armenia being part of Russia in that case, they were joined in the Middle Ages, i.e. before the POD in question. But they also refer in the vid (below) as UFN members as 'nations' instead of 'states'.

I just saw this video and KAguya says "pride. pride of self governance" as being the best trait for governnance at 1:58 or so www.youtube.com/watch?v=pX2GeO…

But again, a country which was oppressed for however many years will probably react very differently than EU countries. And EU countries oppressed by Brittania will prolly work in inter-ethnic solidarity. Esp given Snizchel is doing the conquering. I wonder if 'divide and conquer' will work in the EU.

Li Hua/Tienzi I thought was only the head of the 'United States of China' after the Chinese Federation broke up. Given it's not treated as a bloc in the UFN.

A lot of that previous comment does make a lot of good points that I can't really refute. In my defense this scenario map is attempting to justify an alternate history world that is ridiculously constructed and contradicts itself in a lot of ways.

Popularity in the anti-Britannians will probably vary. Like I said they are a mixed bag and that means a lot of different motives, methods and plans for the future all conflicting with one another.

On the point of borders in canon. That made even less sense than any part of their phenomenally poorly constructed history. This is an interpretation I made using canon material but still changing things to reflect the POD a little more.

Your comment on nations and democracy at their inception certainly does make sense to me at least.

Finally they never really say how big the United States of China really is. They mention the Chinese Federation was disbanded but did they break it up or simply turn it into a looser union? Tianzi/Jiang Lihua is, as previously mentioned, beloved throughout the entirety of the Federation so would the people accept having her kicked out of power? Also by the looks of it even if you broke up the Chinese Federation then China would still have a significant voting block because it's population would be enormous compared to everyone but India and Britannia.

Im on episode 3 of R2 now. Watching the English Dub. Some notes from rewatching up to then:

They refer to Brittania as a Suzerain power in relation to Area 11 in both seasons 1 and 2, using the term Suzerainty specifically. I guess this fits in with notions of self-determination and nationalism being taken a backseat, I gues Westphalian Peace was undone by the Britannian Empire's influence to rewrite international law. Or maybe the E.U. also agreed.

Also in that little scene in ep 3 of R2, they reference 'Italian' and 'German' 'State Forces' so there still is some canon unified Ital and Germany, and perhaps their reluctance/unwillingness to work together has been overstated by Schnizel given they fought the Brittanians on/off for probably centuries and held off the Brittanians at El Alamein off for a while. Also that reference to 'Victory Bordeaux' (wine) implies the E.U. is 'winning' against Brittanian at least at this stage ('a fine brand') though of course you can make statements about optimistic/indulgent command staff (but again, given the EU is democratic I think the military culture would not permit such)

Thank you. Louis Vanqouer is an original creation. I thought it would be ironic for France to depose one Louis and then enthrone another.

I honestly had issues with the High King Eowyn stuff but then I remembered Nazi obsession with Norse mythology, Italian obsession with Ancient Rome and Japan's obession with Bushido tradition so I thought why wouldn't the Britannians do it. I mean fascist governments lie all the time and Britannia always seems to be obessed with Arthurian mythology.

I am now really annoyed at the release of the new OVAs and the European history that came with it. I mean come on the people put Naopleon in power and then rise up against him and execute him. Even by the Code Geass universe's standards that ASB.

theyre wrong according to this:

>The Imperial Calender refers to the date and setting Code Geass uses in the English version, in which years are labeled as a.t.b or "Ascension Throne Britannia". It is set to the date the first Celtic super-king, Eowyn, was elected by the united British tribes to battle Rome, becoming the first member of the modern Britannian imperial family. This calender is used by the Holy Empire of Britannia. It functions similarly to the standard Gregorian "B.C./A.D." calendar, but is set approximately fifty-five years earlier. However, in the Japanese version uses C.E. instead of A.D. which means "in the near future."


The invasion of Japan is described as in a.t.b from what I remember last (im going to rewatch it soon though, lol break)
