Most everybody knows Star Wars. Most everybody loves Star Wars.

Most everybody loves democracy.

This is a simple system for rating where we are in the downfall of democracy to imperialism as tied to timeline of the rise of the Galactic Empire. Sortof a nuclear war clock all over again.

       So which character is Donald Trump? Darth Vader is too intelligent; Jar-Jar Binks is closer but less dangerous.

       The boy Donald is a good fit for Han Solo, wethinks.

       Thinking Trump is one of the useful idiots of the Trade Federation. Or perhaps Boss Nass.

       Do we get to see the first episodes in the aftermath?

       In Roman history terms, we're around that point late in the second century BC, where the constitution has lost much of its credibility because the geographic reach of plutocracy has outgrown it, but the first round of military coups hasn't quite kicked off.   

       It's not a good place. I wish I could tell you how to change the script, but ...

       The Roman governmental system was doomed because it was overly complicated at an executive level, and failed to adapt to changing circumstances. In the end the population got fed up of squabbling aristocrats and were quite pleased to see the First Triumvirate wield decisive authority.   

       It's not a good analogy.

       Hence Brexit.

       //overly complicated at an executive level//   

       Hmm ... That's not the way Appian tells it. But hey, what would he know?
