Crave a Big Brother society? Well, we found two worlds back to back that were almost identical, so you can take your pick. This one has women with facial hair. The other has police wearing skirts. Which do you prefer?

Parallel History

In 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, spies who stole atomic weapons secrets from the U.S. on Earth Prime and were summarily executed. After their death sentence was carried out, FBI head J. Edgar Hoover assumed the office of the presidency instead of Lyndon Johnson.

As a result of Hoover’s rise to power, much of the Constitution was abridged and martial law was declared. In the Second Gettysburg Address, Hoover spoke out against the ills of civilization, saying that democracy was leading to godless amorality and the breakdown of the family unit. Hoover remained as president for 22 years, up until he died in 1985. Martial law effectively allows for a police state.

Martial law has changed the face of the nation in several ways. Hotel guests must be fingerprinted by order. Cop killing is punishable by electrocution. The drinking age? 27. Alcatraz is still open and is the second biggest tourist attraction in the nation, right behind Hoover’s tomb. Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Sam Kinison are housed there as political prisoners.

Citizens are only allowed to listen to music that is state-approved, mostly mellow and wholesome standards sung by the likes of Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain. Apparently, Donny Osmond is the Michael Jackson of this world.

Lyndon P. LaRouche is currently President of the United States. Judge Nassau was a judge in the California Supreme court and got in the FBI’s black book by trying to acquit a man that the FBI wanted found guilty. Radio Free America is an underground pirate radio station dedicated to preserving freedom.

Japanese computers are illegal due to an embargo, but some can be found on the black market.

On this world, facial hair on women is normal and an accepted part of our society. How these women grow more facial hair than some men baffles MultiDim scientists.

Travel Advisory

Clear for takeoff

Because of the restrictive American government on this world, MultiDim will conduct tours only and will not allow others to leave the confines of the tour. Hey, you don't want to be tortured, do you?

The Zimmerman Telegraph

Suppressed, just like every other government document MultiDim researchers tried to dig up. Very frustrating.
