Advice on a new caption I'm writing? (Fascist content warning)

Posted under General

Got a really massive caption I'm finishing up (5 consecutive images each with their own walls of text) and I'm having second thoughts about the name I chose for something, so I'm looking for some other opinions on the subject.

Without spoiling all that much about the captions themselves, the story features a near-future militaristic white-supremist fascist organization that's pretty obviously Nazi-adjacent with use of similar symbols and stuff. I was just straight-up referring to it as the "Fourth Reich" but I think I want to have a name that's less explicitly German and more generally white/western, as well as moving away from any direct relation to that one guy y'all learned about in history class.

Any suggestions for organization names along those lines would be appreciated!

To be honest I think there is nothing wrong with Germanic terms as German is something of a Latin for white supremacy. But anyway could you tell me more about the organisation through either a DM or reply?

A majority of the captions revolves around two characters fighting against them, so they don't go super in-depth on explaining the organization itself, leaving pretty much just what I said in the initial post.

Setting is like, near-future, maybe 25-50 years out with things like proper AI and tech-revolutionized military. The organization is heavily industrialized with cutting-edge technology, very militaristic, and its sole goal is unifying every country on Earth under the superiority of the white race. I would assume they originated from a superpower country but that isn't really touched upon at all in the story.

In a nutshell, think of every "The Technologically-Advanced Evil Empire" you've ever fought against in a JRPG. Especially Valkyria Chronicles.

Are they explicitly Nazi or more ambiguous like the European Identitarians?

Pretty explicitly Nazi, not necessarily the exact same group but the symbols are there.

I think then that Fourth Reich would be appropriate. Could also go for the Neoborea or something similar as a reference to the idea that all white and Aryan people come from Hyperborea.
