1985-French-Canadian Cold War by GeneralHelghast 1985-French-Canadian Cold War by GeneralHelghast
Here is an alternate history map requested by lightningscaresmelightningscaresme.deviantart.c….

After achieving victory over the Russians, due to the Russians suffering from economic distress for an unknown reason, Napoleon Bonaparte began to use the woodlands to build warships for the invasion of the British Isles in 1813. Once the island nation was conquered, London undergoes occupation by French troops while the Austrian, Danish, and Prussian monarchies, along with the Rhine Confederation, are annexed into France. However, on May 12th, 1833, Napoleon eventually dies and is succeeded by his son, Napoleon II. By 1838, France's economy begins to increase rapidly as the empire conquers a vast majority of Africa, India, and the Caribbean, forging an era known as the era of "Pax Francia" or "French Peace". By 1848, Napoleon II was assassinated by members of a Dutch independence movement during an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow the monarchy. In response, Napoleon I's nephew and Napoleon II's cousin, Napoleon III takes up the throne and re-establishes order. By 1860, Canada and Mexico eventually defeat the United States during the Louisiana War, but eventually begin to turn their weapons at each other. Within the North american continent, Santa Anna and his men managed to crush the Texan revolutionaries and militarize the northern border while General-Governor Edmund Walker Head seizes Oregon, Alaska, and northern Louisiana while making sure that the remaining British colonies in the Caribbean remain under the eyes of a seemingly paranoid Canadian government. Meanwhile, Colombia expanded southward and waged a war against Brazil, resulting in a bloody conflict that forced the two powers to commit a ceasefire and call in a status quo by 1864. In the US, President Stephen Douglas of the Democratic party wins a second term as President and declares the total isolation of America from all nations of the world, resulting into pure neutrality. By 1865, Napoleon III declares the annexation of England while Scotland and Ireland remain mere satellites to the French Empire. Within Paris, a group of brilliant scientists soon develop new forms of technology due to the Industrial Revolution of 1820. In time, by 1880, French technology reaches to the same level as our timeline in in 1960, enabling the French people to watch television, launch satellites orbiting Earth, build automobiles, and listen to the radio. Electricity becomes widespread within Europe while the rest of the world, with the exception of Canada, remains outdated. As a result, They are officially declared as "primitives" by the French. By 1900, Canada slowly becomes equally as advanced as France and eventually sells the blueprints to China, pressuring the Qing Dynasty to conquer the remnants of independent India north of French India. In time, the Qing Dynasty, Canada, and France begin to compete with each other over the very dominance of the globe.

By 1913, the invention of the cell-phone was introduced by Pierre-Joan Monterrie of the Techcall Corporation in order to expand communication around the globe with Paris as a thriving capital of the world. By 1920, however, a global economic crisis similar to the Great Depression occurs, which slowly gives rise to fascist and communist political parties. Eventually, regardless of the short-lived popularity of the Communist Party, France soon regains its strength by 1934 and eventually forms an alliance with the United States, hoping to advance American technology. Meanwhile, the still battered nation of Canada soon experiences the rise of the National Unity Party, a clerical-Fascist party bent on restoring the former glory of the British empire and transform Canada into a powerful empire to be reckoned with. Led by Adrien Arcand, who declared himself "Father Arcand" in 1937, the National Unity Party seized power and rebuilt the economy into its former strength, creating the Canadian Federation. In the US, financial aid was given by the French while the Americans began to arm themselves with powerful weapons and pointed them against their aggressive, northern neighbor. The end result was a Cold War between Canada and France that soon reached to its most extreme by 1985. During the events of the time, The Japanese Shogunate and the Ottoman Empire remains backward feudal nations that slowly begin to face the ever growing spheres of influences from the Chinese, Canadian, and French superpowers, who now wield terrible weapons of mass destruction.

Note: Teal basically represents the independent countries, just to let you know.

Reminds me of Code Geass but most plausible. After all, the Holy Britannian Empire would be in our world Canada instead of America. :)

Basically, they were scared as shit when they saw the French taking over Cuba, Haiti, and Jamaica. They knew that they were too weak to face France alone.

But its seems like if France were going to invade and annex Spanish Cuba and Santo Domingo, that Puerto Rico would have been first on their list?

Well, the Puerto Ricans were right to be scared and join the U.S early so the French never even bothered to disturb them and just move passed them.
