My sci-fi novel set in the 2130s will feature a terraformed Mars ... but I was going for a different and (in my opinion) interesting near future: After it's terraformed, wealthy tycoons, businessmen and all sorts of people with means found in Mars an opportunity. Carving a place in the sun for their fringe ideologies and opinions, establishing new countries before the Earth's nations could fully colonize and control it. As a result, the former red planet is home to a new confederacy, the fourth reich, tax ravens, small monarchies, etc. Needless to say, there will be tension and wars, and the atmosphere will be bleak. However, the main point of this thread is: the nazis. Including them anywhere seems to cause uproar, especially when they aren't portrayed as full-blown cardboard monsters. My idea is that the created from scratch country will already be big enough and there wouldn't be any minorities to antagonize, so they would be less aggressive and warmongering than the RL counterparts, just trying to build their ideological utopia and minding their own business(mostly). Their country would, in the novel, have suspicious and tense, but peaceful relations with other countries, similar to how it was during the appeasement policy. How does this tie up with the main plot? I'd say it involves military elements as well as espionage. The MC will have to go there while looking for someone elusive. He will at some points be going against the law and causing trouble, and at some points, characters from the reich will aid him in his objectives as well. With that said, am I going too far in shady territory? Will I be bashed and my work outright rejected everywhere because of these things? Should I just scrap everything Nazi related and play it safe?
