Howard Chaykin's American Flag. It would be interesting to see how much more dystopian a world he can imagine than the one we have today.

***

AMERICAN FLAGG!! assumed that the USSR would survive in the 21st century. (So did NEXUS by Mike Baron and Steve Rude -- far beyond the 21st century, as I recall.) So I can understand why Chaykin would be reluctant to go there again -- it's no longer a possible-future story, it's an alternate-reality story, which I assume is something he never intended.

It's a pretty classic series, that much I agree with.
