Had an interesting dream that I lived in a dystopian alt-history, but in the future.
I was a soldier for the Heavenly Empire of America, a evangelist fascist theocratic state, that was founded on the principles of "Moralism", an unholy union of the nastiest alt-right and religious right talking points that had launched a coup in the 2030s and overthrown the ailing US. I was defending New York City from an Coalition invasion from the Mali Caliphate, the Empire of Greater Persia and Rajastan (a Zoroastrian(?) Persian Empire that had expanded into India and Iraq), and the Rationalist Republics of Mexico and the Yucatan, which followed "Rationalism", a form of communism that seemed to be a slightly better version of Marx-Leninism.
From what I can gather, the Empire had launched a Great Crusade for Mexico, and after a Operation Barbrossa style campaign, had ground to a halt, and the Coalition had decided to open up a new front in Canada. My regiment was supposed to halt their advance, but got slaughtered, upon which I ran into a sewer pipe and started praying frantically. I distinctly remember hearing the sound of jet bombers, crawled out of my hidey hole to see an absolutely massive white marble Statue of Liberty who's tablet said "And I would wade through the towering flame, for I am their God and Master, and I shall receive them, and they shall be cleansed in the arms of their Lord in Heaven, amen, take a bomb to the chest and crumble to dust. Then I got shot in the leg.
So that was fun.
