The Tuckerverse is a parallel universe to our own, similar in many ways but with several key differences.

World History

One major difference between the Tuckerverse and our own Earth is the existence of magic. While historically magic had had very little recorded use, resulting in nearly the entire world believing it to be myth, there are a few historic incidents that are believed to have been something more conventional when in fact magic was the cause.

A second major difference is the prominence of women. Women's rights had a much bigger surge in the early 1970s and as a result women have already held several positions previously thought to be male-only. Examples include Malin Danby, who was the first female Navy SEAL, and that the president prior to Adam Bishop was Raquel Chapman. A suggestion as to the reason is due to, at some point, the number of women in ratio to men in the world skewered significantly, enough to make men, globally, the minority by at least a couple of percentage points.

A third difference is advances in technology. Technological development is moving a bit faster, with products like the CyPad coming out earlier than they did on contemporary Earth. Commercial androids are rapidly becoming a reality, and some seemingly miracle-like innovations such as Type-7 exist. Hologram technology is also becoming available as artificial intelligence hit a breakthrough thanks to Replicant.

The last big difference is that historic events are different. The UK did not stop being in control of Hong Kong until 2000 rather than 1997. The terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, was also not executed successfully. A combination of factors, including the presence of armed Sky Marshalls on the fated flights and some involved being unable to successfully board their flights, prevented the crashes. Thus while in the Tuckerverse the World Trade Center is still standing it will not be referenced out of respect for the real-world incident. The attack failing to occur changed the Tuckerverse's political climate to our own, leaving their alert level lower than that of our own world and having an impact on future elections, explaining why none of the major political leaders, like Alejandro Guzman and Arthur Gladstone, are the same as in the real world.

Major past historical events include the formation of nations such as Cadejo, Sturmhaven, Thokozani and Cheon. Thokozani's presence in Africa has led to some stability in the region due to its military and technological prowess, while Cheon has led to further popularization of ninjas in modern culture. In terms of monarchies the House of Archer ended up becoming the royal house of the United Kingdom, Victoria Archer the current reigning monarch. The House of Archer supplanted the House of Hanover, and thus has been in power since the end of the 19th Century.

Magic

Magic exists through both spells and alchemy, the latter essentially being extremely complex chemistry which creates special potions. Spells meanwhile typically require a great deal of preparation, including physical reagents and special words. It is for this reason that Magic Items exist, as they have spells stored within them that can be activated much faster. Spells to create magic items are incredibly complex, requiring days if not weeks to complete with very little room for error. The Children of Hecate are a group dedicated to the use of magic.

Media

Real world celebrities do not exist except for some spoofs. Television shows, video games, comic books and the like do exist, even in a paradoxical sense as a movie or show's cast members could be playing characters int he Tuckerverse as well.
