You'd be rich and not in debt. The British Empire had great plans for you.

I dunno. It's still summer for me, I don't wanna think. It won't be America anymore, that's for sure.

I'm more than a tad bothered of the effects that the hypothetical situation would have upon anime, manga, VNs, video games, RPG's, manhua, etc... In a way, we're SOL. lol


Don't be. In this hypothetical alt-history the Japanese developed mechs before WW2 and promptly overran North America and soon after, using the vast natural resources here, subjugated the rest of the world. The Nazi's retreated to their Moonbase and are currently planning a counter attack using occult magic and recovered alien technology. So yeah, as log as your not a moon Nazi....All hail our anime loving, mech pioting overlords?

Those are some really great thoughts you have. I am curious as to what you think of the Native Americans in this issue. Would there be any difference or would it( it referring to what happened to the Native Americans when we landed here) have ended up the same?

I'm sure Mexico would have still kept the western territories and maybe the whole country a long with Native Americans or run them up north or just do the same thing that was did by the Colonies.

It depends on who wins out in the end. We USians have a lot of cultural baggage when it comes to the tribes. Yet without the initial impetus of "This land was given to us by God." from the Puritans, I think the way we treated the natives would have been much different.

Then again, it all depends on who wins out in a particular area as the other three major colonial powers had different ideas on how to live with them. The Spanish wanted to assimilate everyone, using the Church as an arm to explore and develop new territories like El Camino Real in California. The French were more interested in egalitarianism, treating most of the tribes as good neighbors rather than bad enemies. And while the Dutch would have gladly settled down into a mode of mutual profit with the tribes, they generally pissed off more than their fair share of the natives and were treated almost as poorly as they were under the English colonies.

So to give a tl;dr answer your question, I'm afraid I'd have to completely waffle and say "It depends." There are too many cultural variables to sit down and have at it in a single hour of thinking.

I would hope the native people of the areas would thrive. There were people way before settlers came through and messed everything up.
