Ah, the British Empire! Who here has not dreamed of a world in which the Union Jack still flies proudly over Suez and Bombay, New York and Honolulu? A world in which the medium of exchange is not Dollars or Euros (urgh!) but good old Pounds Sterling (240 d.)? A world in which fast food means greasy spoons or cod and chips wrapped in old newspaper? Where films means Ealing and cars means Austin, Bedford and Morris?
Possible reasons for the decline of the British Empire include:
Wikipedia has an article about the British Empire *link.
Tony Jones's Monarchy World (the American Revolution is avoided, among other things) *link
Cornwallis from GURPS Alternate Earths 2 (American rebellion put down).
Gernsback from GURPS Alternate Earths (no Second World War).
The Warlord of the Air by Michael Moorcock (1971) (no First World War). This novel is also famous for its widespread usage of airships.
The Peshawar Lancers by S.M. Stirling. After a series of comet impacts in 1878, the British government relocates to India, forming a New Empire from the ashes of the Old. By 2025, technology is still at the level of our world's early 20th century. However, the New Empire is far more Indian than British, and goes by the name “Angrezi Raj”.
